CAT S60 Review: Hardcore to a fault

CAT S60 Review: Hardcore to a fault

The world's first thermal imaging smartphone is the CAT S60, a device first introduced back in February of 2016. This smartphone is part of a collection of Android-based devices made by the folks at CAT, aka Caterpillar. We've not traditionally reviewed a lot of Android devices this far from their original release date for several reasons, one of which is Android updates.

Honor Play Review: Inexpensive, Balanced, Unique

Honor Play Review: Inexpensive, Balanced, Unique

The Honor Play is a surprisingly low-cost smartphone made with gaming in mind. It features a 6.3-inch display with a notch and a relatively small chin, and it runs a unique sort of Android (with Honor's EMUI on top). The Honor Play is aimed at the newest wave of mobile gamers, bringing a bit of external aesthetic flavor to the mix as it packs in a decent bit of power under the hood.

Sony WH-1000XM3 Review: King of noise-canceling headphones

Sony WH-1000XM3 Review: King of noise-canceling headphones

Sony may not have intended the coppery highlights on its new WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones as a nod to the old adage that "silence is golden," but faced with a crying baby and a ten hour flight they proved themselves worth their weight in the precious metal. Now in their third-generation, Sony's headphones have gone from upstart Bose rival to segment-shaking heavyweight.

Swagtron EB-5 Review : This Foldable Electric Bike is on-point

Swagtron EB-5 Review : This Foldable Electric Bike is on-point

The EB-5 electric bicycle might be the best bicycle I've ever ridden - and I've been riding bikes my whole life. I've never lent much credence to the idea of using a bicycle with a motor. I always thought it was a bit counter-intuitive to put gas in something that's otherwise the symbol of green living. But with the EB-5, it's all the good parts about the motorized bike, and none of the bad.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Review: Just Right

Samsung Galaxy Watch Review: Just Right

The Samsung Galaxy Watch follows the tradition of the Galaxy Gear S smartwatch line with a new brand and a new outlook on life. The Galaxy Watch uses the newest version of Tizen to deliver a wrist-bound smart wearable device experience that's both powerful and feels natural. The Galaxy Watch is the first smartwatch I've worn that I've not taken off (and left off forever) immediately after my review. In this watch, Samsung's delivered something special.

App-Controlled Batmobile LEGO Review : One Powered Up Dark Knight

App-Controlled Batmobile LEGO Review : One Powered Up Dark Knight

The LEGO remote controlled Batmobile is an exercise in beastly looks, battery-powered rumbling motor action, and a new Batman. For some, the new Batman minifig for August of 2018 is enough incentive to own. Even without that Batman - even if this set came with a super old Batman - this set remains a pretty tight box of LEGO bricks and elements.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 3rd-gen Review: a flexible business ultrabook

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 3rd-gen Review: a flexible business ultrabook

Lenovo has a flexible version of its most popular business ultrabook, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga. As the name suggests, the X1 Yoga brings the X1 lineup's robust business features to Lenovo's flexible Yoga design, enabling users to fold the display entirely back into a tablet-like mode. The model's built-in stylus greatly expands the X1 Yoga's abilities versus the X1 Carbon, but is it worth the transition?

Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse review: Precision comes at a price

Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse review: Precision comes at a price

With the continued rise of eSports comes a greater focus on the kind of PC gaming accessories we’re using. If you’re a pro gamer, your mouse and keyboard suddenly become just as important as the hardware inside your PC, as they’re what enable you to flex your skill. It shouldn’t be a surprise, then, that amateur players of competitive games want access to the same hardware the pros use, and Logitech is more than happy to oblige.

Meizu 16th Review

Meizu 16th Review

You might not rank Meizu among the top smartphone makers in the market, be it in its home country of China let alone the rest of the world. Not that it hasn’t tried hard, with interesting yet eccentric standouts like the Meizu PRO 5 Ubuntu Edition and the double-faced Meizu PRO 7. Those, however, haven’t exactly put it close to the top nor have they brought in the dough. Meizu has since then changed its strategy, shifting its phones towards more conventional designs and features to try and pull in users who need a serious smartphone. And this Meizu 16th is perhaps the most serious one of all.

Essential Phone PH-1 Toast custom-cut wood cover Review

Essential Phone PH-1 Toast custom-cut wood cover Review

The Essential Phone PH-1 is a victim of circumstance - it's not the most traditional phone on the block. Because the Essential Phone PH-1's creators didn't succeed the way they'd hoped with their first phone, the phone's future is in question. In its current state, the PH-1 isn't exactly the most likely candidate for custom-made or ready-made accessories or cases of any sort. The folks at TOAST seem to have tossed caution to the wind, because they've got a wood cover for the Essential Phone - one they've got available to custom-cut, too.

Deadpool Blu-ray DVD Digital Super Duper Cut Review

Deadpool Blu-ray DVD Digital Super Duper Cut Review

Take a quick peek at this newest last-ditch effort to get you to spend money on Deadpool 2. It's a plastic box with four different fancy disks inside it. One each for each of the most important characters other than Domino inside it. Because Domino was lucky enough to avoid getting her face plastered on a disk some poor goofball went out and bought from 20th Century Fox - lucky her!

Air Hogs Supernova Review: Simple drone with motion control

Air Hogs Supernova Review: Simple drone with motion control

Over the past week we've played with the Air Hogs Supernova, a tiny drone made to be minimal. This drone is controlled with an on-switch and sensors. The user tells the drone what to do and how to act with a series of gestures - hand signals in the air - and all power is provided by a charging cable that's not unlike what smartphone users have for their smartphone. This drone is just about as simple as a drone gets.
