Apple Watch Series 5 battery life is the real deal

Apple Watch Series 5 battery life is the real deal

I've spent the past week with the Apple Watch Series 5 on my wrist, and while it's still a little too early for a full review, I've definitely come to appreciate some of the headline features. The always-on display addresses one of the lingering criticisms of the smartwatch, both from owners and would-be wearers, that you couldn't see the time or other information without waking the Apple Watch first. Apple fixes that, and it does it in a clever way.

The Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro is living up to expectations

The Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro is living up to expectations

I'll admit it, I was a little bit obsessed with the Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro when Apple announced it last week. It still feels like an atypical color for Apple to pick, not quite as serious as Space Gray or Silver, but neither as colorful as some of the iPhone 11's finishes. Of course, it's not only the color of the case that sticks out.

Nintendo Switch Lite launch: How to transfer game saves and user data

Today is the day the Nintendo Switch Lite launches. Most people who already own a Switch will likely be sticking with what they have, but if you've decided to change things up and jump to the Switch Lite, you'll need to know how to transfer your game saves and your user data. Thankfully, Nintendo has a built-in process to handle such transfers, and though it can be a little involved, the transfer itself doesn't take much time.

Faraday Future has a big plan – and a big problem

Faraday Future has a big plan – and a big problem

Faraday Future has big plans, and it needs big money to pay for them. The car startup was meant to weave together the electrification of Tesla, the user-experience of Apple, the data wrangling of Google, and the shared mobility flexibility of Uber. Instead it ended up with unpaid suppliers, frustrated investors, and a bank account nowhere near deep enough to cover its ambitions.

Sonos Move Review: Cutting cords not corners

Sonos Move Review: Cutting cords not corners

Expectations were high for Sonos Move, the multi-room audio company's first portable, Bluetooth-compatible speaker. Dangerously high, you could argue: Sonos says its users have been asking for a completely wire-free speaker pretty much from day one, and that's plenty of time for an outlandish wish-list to develop. The reality of the $399 Move is that it's not quite the speaker we expected - the question is whether that's a good thing or bad.

iPhone 11 review roundup: Pro, Max, or no?

iPhone 11 review roundup: Pro, Max, or no?

The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max were all released into the internet review universe today all at once. The fact that these devices are all very similar in basic keyword-search terms should give you an idea of how important it is to Apple that you see them all as the same single overpowering force. The decision, you'll likely find as a consumer, will not feel like an "if" sort of thing, but a "which iPhone 11 should I buy" sort of thing.

Vivo NEX 3 5G hands-on: a new face on a familiar soul

Vivo NEX 3 5G hands-on: a new face on a familiar soul

Vivo will probably be remembered, or blamed, as the one that started the whole popup camera mania. It didn't exactly catch fire but even larger OEMs like ASUS and Samsung have given it their own spin. Vivo, however, has been pushing the envelope of mobile hardware for years now, from deca-core processors to 8 or even 10 GB of RAM. With the Vivo NEX 3, the company is pooling together all its innovations into a high-end phone that looks both new yet feels familiar at the same time.

Interview: Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann opens up on new cars, daily-drivers and EVs

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know Bugatti broke the mythical 300 mph - or 304.77 mph, to be exact - speed barrier in a prototype Chiron. Now that car, presented by Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann at the automaker's 110th-anniversary celebration in Molshein, is called the Chiron Super Sport 300+. It reached a top speed of 304.7 mph around Volkswagen’s Ehra-Lessien proving ground, and Bugatti is only making 30 examples for a starting price of roughly $3.9 million each.

Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro (Redmi K20 Pro) Review : Shiny Low Profile Hero

The smartphone you see before you represents everything good about reading tech news today. It's very easy to get wrapped up in believing the best phones only come from the most visible brands - Samsung, Apple, etcetera - but that's not always true. Imagine there's a phone that's just as good as far more expensive devices but isn't made by a brand you recognize - could such a device exist?

Apple Watch Series 5 hands-on: Always-on display is a keeper

Apple Watch Series 5 hands-on: Always-on display is a keeper

There's probably a long German word for the act of refining something which is already at the top of its segment, and if I knew what it was I'd be using it for the Apple Watch Series 5. Despite the best efforts of Google, Samsung, and others, the Apple Watch tends to be the go-to in smartwatches, not least for its combination of fitness tracking, design, and app functionality.
