Moto E 2015 (2nd Gen) Review

Moto E 2015 (2nd Gen) Review

Motorola's 2nd gen Moto E comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop, a 4.5-inch display, and is perfectly legit for the price it's being offered at. Is it the finest piece of hardware on the market today? Of course not. Is it meant to be? No way. Does the 2015 Moto E provide one of the most compelling value propositions for a smartphone in the world today? Absolutely it does. This is Motorola's continuation of their most successful smartphone-selling setup to date - inexpensive, yet not cheap - easily one of the best new smartphones for the price it's being offered at globally this year.

TokyoFlash Kisai RPM Watch Review – a minimalist LED watch

TokyoFlash Kisai RPM Watch Review – a minimalist LED watch

Japan is famous for its minimalist approach to style. The Japanese design team TokyoFlash is behind some of the most unique watch designs on the market. They don't look like ordinary watches. The RPM is TokyoFlash's latest watch from their Kisai brand. It exemplifies a mix of futuristic yet simple design that we've come to associate with Japanese designs. The first thing you'll notice about the RPM is that there is no dial. This watch doesn't use numbers or hands. The sleek, metal link watch uses a pattern of abstract blue LEDs to display the time.

Withings Activité Review – Smart gets Stylish

Withings Activité Review – Smart gets Stylish

Rather than a smartwatch, how about a watch that’s simply smarter? Smartwatches and fitness trackers have long tried to borrow from the traditional horological handbook, but tech usually trumps style; heck, the specter of the Apple Watch may loom over all wearables, but even Cupertino’s wrist-candy needs no second glance to be mistaken for something different from a regular watch. Could salvation come from France by way of Switzerland, and the Withings Activité? With a price tag higher even than Apple’s, and a spec list conspicuously shorter, the Activité needs more than just its coveted “Swiss Made” branding, but after two months of it on my wrist, I've realized it has some unique charms of its own.

LG G Flex 2 Review – Killer Curves

LG G Flex 2 Review – Killer Curves

First you have to prove you're not a gimmick. Then it's just a matter of proving you're better. LG turned heads with the G Flex last year, an Android smartphone with a banana-like bend to it, only to be stung with criticism that its big idea was actually just too big for the hand. Now, 2015 brings a new curved flagship, the LG G Flex 2, distilling the best of the concept into something altogether more usable. As the SlashGear Smartphone of CES 2015 our expectations of the G Flex 2 were undoubtedly high, but does the reality live up to the promise?

MPOW Bluetooth 4.0 Stereo Foldable Headphones Review

If you’re in the market for a pair of Bluetooth headphones, you’ve likely heard about MPOW’s foldable Bluetooth pair. Though no longer a new offering, the headphones have managed to catch the public’s eye over the past year or so and have since found a dedicated fan base hawking the headphones to others. MPOW’s foldable headphones are relatively inexpensive at $30 to $35 (depending on where you get them), and they offer some appealing features like headset functionality and ultra-long battery life. Are they worth getting, though? Read our full review to find out!

Razer Tactical Bag Review: the gear backpack of your dreams

Razer Tactical Bag Review: the gear backpack of your dreams

My review of the Razer Tactical Bag began in January of 2015, about a month and a half ago. The bag was delivered to me right in time for CES 2015 - easily the most action-packed week for me out of the whole year - for tech, that is to say. During the week I carry a lot of weight. In past years, I've brought bags that weren't up to the task. I've had bags whose handles rip partway through the week. I've had bags that didn't end up having nearly enough space or pockets for organization of oddities. The Razer Tactical Bag was up to the task.

Elsa’s Sparking Ice Castle LEGO Review

At long last, LEGO's mini-dolls collection of brick sets gets its day in the sun with Frozen. Here we're having a peek at Elsa's Sparking Ice Castle, a set you're only going to find in the pink-colored aisle of your local department store's toy section.

It comes with unique pieces, shiny stickers, and Olaf the snowman.

Dell Venue 8 7000 review; premium hardware, work-in-progress software

Dell Venue 8 7000 review; premium hardware, work-in-progress software

Dell is on the comeback trail. Quietly, the company that used to make PCs that would make you groan with disdain has been releasing a series of pretty stellar products. After releasing a MacBook challenger last year, the company made an impressive showing at CES this year. Part of the excitement surrounded the Dell Venue 8 7000 tablet, which is as gorgeous an Android slate as you’ll ever lay eyes on. With an interesting camera under the hood, we took the Venue to task in order to find out if Dell was really back.

Kodak PIXPRO SL25 Smart Lens Camera Review

Kodak PIXPRO SL25 Smart Lens Camera Review

This is a camera that you strap on to your smartphone to take photos your smartphone might never have otherwise been able to take. The Kodak PIXPRO SL25 Smart Lens Camera works with software made by Pixpro, so you'll be connecting with a Pixpro app - if you wish - and you'll be working with a device that has Kodak and Pixpro branding on it. Can this device take on the smartphone segment and attach to a unique crew of photographers in the process?

EasyAcc 10,000mAh portable battery mini-review

EasyAcc 10,000mAh portable battery mini-review

A portable battery seems like an unnecessary burden until that one time you really need it, then it's worth its weight in gold. Not all external batteries are created equal, however, and investing in the wrong one could mean endless fiddling to make sure it's still charging, trouble getting it to hold a charge, and frustration when it fails in the middle of your weekend getaway. I recently got my hands on EasyAcc's 10,000mAh portable battery, and having been burned (in the non-literal sense) by external batteries in the past, I was skeptical about how it would hold up.
