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.

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.

Motorola Moto E Review: Flawed Affordability

Motorola Moto E Review: Flawed Affordability

A smartphone for the cost-conscious. Going SIM-free and eschewing carrier subsidies has been slow to catch on in the US, but with T-Mobile USA’s “Uncarrier” movement gaining pace, perhaps the time is right for handsets that bear their true sticker price. Motorola is aiming big with the Moto E, but it’s walking a cautious and tricky balance between specs and savings.

Amazon's Fire TV set-top box arrived to shake up an increasingly crowded home entertainment segment, but does it have what it takes to set the living room alight?

What we’re seeing here is, at first, exactly what the nickname for Next Issue suggests: Netflix for magazines. Next Issue doesn’t work with video, of course, it works with a digital magazine format. This system works with an entirely different kind of media than Netflix, working therefor with an entirely different set of abilities.

Surface Pro 3 Review

Surface Pro 3 Review

The Surface Pro 3 is something special. Microsoft has refused to give up on its concept of one device that’s both a tablet and ultrabook, and its ramped up the trash-talk, too, calling out the MacBook Air and iPad by name when it launched the third-generation Windows 8.1 machine.
