2015 Hyundai Sonata first-drive: CarPlay & Android Auto onboard

2015 Hyundai Sonata first-drive: CarPlay & Android Auto onboard

Hyundai has something to prove in the midsized segment, and the 2015 Sonata is the car it's aiming to do that with. Dropping the droopy design for a tauter, more sturdy appearance, and stepping up its game with more usable performance, clever electronic toys like smart cruise control, and interior space that belongs with a class above, the new Sonata wants you to forget the Camry, Passat, and Fusion in favor of a US-made Korean alternative. Ambitious, but as I found behind the wheel there's plenty to recommend it.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S review: 10.5 and 8.4 Android glamour

Samsung Galaxy Tab S review: 10.5 and 8.4 Android glamour

Samsung has always been at the forefront of envelope-pushing when it comes to slim tablets, and the Galaxy Tab S is no exception. Challenging Apple’s iPad line-up head on, and borrowing the Super AMOLED technology and fingerprint biometrics from the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Tab S 10.5 promise to finally give the Android tablet world what it’s arguably been missing: a little glamour. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Epson Moverio BT-200 Review: Smashing Glass

Epson Moverio BT-200 Review: Smashing Glass

Google didn’t invent wearable technology, it just made it contentious. Glass’ play for the mass-market isn’t going smoothly, but Google isn’t the only company pushing head-mounted displays. Epson’s Moverio BT-200 may have been dismissed by many as another “me too” Glass clone when it was unveiled at CES earlier this year, but in many ways it’s the true augmented reality headset we’d hoped Google’s might be, and all it took was pretending to be a drone pilot, an engineer, and a space explorer to figure that out. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Acer Aspire Switch 10 review: 2-in-1 utility with a tablet price tag

Acer Aspire Switch 10 review: 2-in-1 utility with a tablet price tag

The 2-in-1 isn’t a new platform, but it is a questionable one. Do you need a computer that snaps off into a tablet? The genre has its use cases, and Acer hopes to make a strong entry into the forum with their Aspire 10, a tablet-cum-computer offering that strikes a balance. With a 10-inch screen, the Aspire Switch 10 is an appropriately sized tablet, but does it work as a laptop, too?

Sony Smartband review: a good start, but needs work

Sony Smartband review: a good start, but needs work

At the time Sony’s new wearable ambitions were announced, I noted it was to a “hushed and confused crowd”. The reason the deluge of press members at CES were silent was because nobody knew quite what to make of Sony’s Core announcement. It didn’t seem as though Sony quite knew what they wanted to relate, either. Now that the Smartband has been released, has Sony figured out what their wearable ambitions are?

LG G3 Review

LG G3 Review

This month we’ve had an extended look at the LG G3 in its international edition, preparing for the USA-bound version(s) which will be launching later this Summer. What we’re seeing here is a phone that out-does the competition while it remains (somehow) humble in the public. It’s not for a lack of trying, of course, but for a lack of successful fanfare that most people we show the LG G3 to have never seen the handset before - it or its predecessor.

Adobe Ink & Slide Review: The iPad stylus grows up

Adobe Ink & Slide Review: The iPad stylus grows up

Adobe got tired of waiting for a great stylus for the iPad, and so it took on the challenge itself, coming up with Adobe Ink and its companion ruler, Slide. Pens for the iPad aren’t new, but neither have they been especially proficient, but Adobe is aiming to change all that with slickly designed hardware and tightly-integrated software. I’ve been using Adobe Ink & Slide with the iPad Air for the past few weeks; read on for my full verdict.

Plantronics Voyager Edge Review

Plantronics Voyager Edge Review

Plantronics knows a thing or two about Bluetooth headsets, being one of the stalwarts of the industry, but the new Voyager Edge still has something unusual to it. Fitting in-between Plantronics’ Legend and Discovery lines of earpieces, the Voyager Edge claims to pair the performance of the former with the style of the latter, in a headset suitable for both home and office. There’s some strong competition from Jawbone’s Era, however; read on to find out which deserves a spot on your ear.

Lenovo TAB A8 Review

Lenovo TAB A8 Review

Lenovo has added some new tablets to its roster, among them being the 8-inch Lenovo TAB A8. This tablet is a mixture of goodies -- it is thin and light, and boasts an astounding battery life (hint: I gave up on waiting for the battery to deplete in standby after day 19). Though the specs are in the range needed to make the TAB A8 a relatively budget-friendly slate, it doesn't feel like a mid-range tablet. How does it hold up when put to use, though? Read our full SlashGear review to find out.
