Orange is the new F (Sport)

Orange is the new F (Sport)

I’m sitting window on a CRJ200 to Palm Springs (CA) waiting for the crew to finish loading. I grab the American Way Magazine from the seat back in front of me and open to an anecdote on Sinatra and fashion. “Sinatra absolutely hated brown,” it said. “Orange was the happiest color,” he said.

Moto 360 Sport hands-on and first impressions: just as nice

Moto 360 Sport hands-on and first impressions: just as nice

The Android Wear smartwatch Moto 360 Sport from Motorola has arrived on our review bench this week and we've taken it on a stroll. Before our full Moto 360 Sport review begins, we've got a few points we need to go over, starting with our initial impressions. As it turns out, this watch isn't the "lesser" version of the Moto 360 that we expected it to be. In fact, the design of this piece of equipment makes us feel as though Motorola's somehow kept the finer points of the non-"sport" model Moto 360 (2015) whilst adding a more robust bit of body in its rubbery silicone "sporty" watch band.

Lumia 950 Review part I: Continuum desktop over “phone”

Lumia 950 Review part I: Continuum desktop over “phone”

Today we're having our first look at the Microsoft Lumia 950 on the review bench, showing you just one - perhaps the most compelling - feature of the bunch: Continuum. When Microsoft first created Windows Phone, it wasn't any secret that they wanted the software to look and feel like a mobile version of what was on the way for their desktop operating system. Almost as if desktop begat mobile. Now, several years down the line, Microsoft attempts to tie the two together implicitly with a feature called Continuum.

BlackBerry PRIV Review Part I: or why you might want this

BlackBerry PRIV Review Part I: or why you might want this

Hello there BlackBerry users, and welcome back! It's been quite a while since we've had a review of BB device like the BlackBerry Priv - one that's a real competitor on the open marketplace. One that feels like BlackBerry is confident in the product its delivering. And why would you want a device like this? An Android device with a push-out physical keys keyboard? Because you've always trusted the BlackBerry brand, and you always will. Just having the brand name there staring you in the face - and having the three volume button combo available - that'll get you every time.

Hands-on with HP’s potent ZBook Studio

Hands-on with HP’s potent ZBook Studio

Does a quad core workstation have to be as bulky as it's powerful? HP clearly doesn't believe so, and having spent some time with the new HP ZBook Studio today, I'm inclined to agree. At 18mm thick it classifies as an ultrabook, but HP is courting dissatisfied MacBook Pro users who want the power of a full Intel Core i7 or Xeon processor.

LG V10 Review Part I: replacing the Galaxy Note

LG V10 Review Part I: replacing the Galaxy Note

Over the past several years, Samsung and LG have waged a silent battle against one another. This was a battle of the big phones. The Samsung Galaxy Note reigned supreme for several generations, checking all the boxes for a power user. These must-haves included a removable battery, a massive display, expandable storage (via microSD slot), and an excellent camera. But in the same year that Samsung does away with two of these "must have" features for their most powerful smartphone, LG picks up the slack. In the LG V10 is the home for the power user.

AT&T LG V10 first look: did LG just hit another home run?

AT&T LG V10 first look: did LG just hit another home run?

The LG V10 is a smartphone we did not expect to see - all the good parts of the LG G4 with the added oddity of a second display. What's the reason for this device to exist? Our questions quickly disintegrated once we got to handle the smartphone. Not only is this device coming with a quirky secondary display, the design of the phone has changed significantly, too. Now far easier to handle and a big larger, to boot, the LG V10 might be the kicker for folks not quite convinced by the G4.
