One Mix 3 Review – Smaller alternative to Surface Go

Our smartphones have become so powerful these days that it’s almost possible to do everything with them. That includes not only entertainment and web browsing but also “light work”, like emailing or frantically hammering out some text in Google Docs or Microsoft Word mobile.

While it may be possible to do almost everything on a mobile device, some still prefer the traditional form of a laptop or the benefits of a larger screen. At the same time, some of those would concede wanting a smaller device they can carry with them anywhere. That fusion of portability and versatility is what the new breed of Ultra Mobile PCs is promising and the One Mix 3 is one of the first to arrive at the scene.

Huawei MateBook X Pro (2019) Review

Huawei MateBook X Pro (2019) Review

Huawei is probably best known for making smartphones primarily as well as networking equipment, two product lines that are at the center of political and legal controversy.

The model's built-in stylus greatly expands the X1 Yoga's abilities versus the X1 Carbon, but is it worth the transition?

Huawei MateBook X Pro Review

I couldn't help but make a comparison to a MacBook right out the box when I first opened the Huawei MateBook X Pro. This is a device that's taken some definite design cues from the MacBook Pro - the latest round of MacBook Pros, at least. It runs Windows 10, though, and it has some unique features that Apple's notebook doesn't. This Huawei MateBook X Pro isn't just a notebook made by a smartphone company - it's a smart piece of hardware in its own right.
