Huawei P30 Pro Review

Huawei P30 Pro Review

It's not hard to imagine Huawei gloating over its foes. It has been belittled, ridiculed, suspected, rejected, and even sued. But now it has come out with what is possibly the best premium smartphone this year so far. That is especially true if you're the type that lives and breathes mobile photography. But does the Huawei P30 Pro really live up to the hype that Huawei and first reviewers have built up? We give it a good SlashGear test to see, hear, and feel how Huawei's greatest stands against Samsung's and Apple's champions.

Embr Wave Review: You own personal thermostat

Embr Wave Review: You own personal thermostat

Embr Wave looks like a watch, or an activity monitor - but it's not. It does not have step tracking, and it won't give you notifications from your phone. It can connect to an app on your phone, but for one reason alone. This device can make your wrist warm, or it can make your wrist cold, and that's it. This device will cost you $300 USD.

Neato Botvac D7 Connected Review

Neato Botvac D7 Connected Review

The original Neato Botvac D7 Connected launched all the way back at IFA 2017 - so a review now might seem a bit strange. Strange because we're generally reviewing devices so early, they've often not even been given a general consumer release. But with the D7, a few different elements are at play - one of which is the fact that the robot vacuum market doesn't turn over nearly as fast as the smartphone or tablet market, so there's really not a lot out there that's come to try to take the D7's lunch.

Apple AirPods 2 Review: The Sound of Convenience

Apple AirPods 2 Review: The Sound of Convenience

The original Apple AirPods succeeded because of one core quality: convenience. Ease of connection and ease of daily use instantly set them apart from rivals, and underscored yet again how Apple's tight-knit ecosystem of hardware and software can give it an edge. Now, with the arrival of the second-generation AirPods - which, for simplicity's sake, I'm going to call "AirPods 2" - Apple has addressed some, though not all, of the complaints and requests.

Honor View 20 Review

Honor View 20 Review

Just last week, Huawei unveiled its new P30 series. While it shares many traits in common with the Samsung Galaxy S10, it quickly took the smartphone camera crown. So why review an Honor phone that launched months ago? For the simple reason that the Honor View 20 is a prime example of how you don't have to break your bank just to get some of the best that the smartphone market has to offer. Provided, of course, you're willing to accept some compromises here and there.

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. A few years ago, however, Huawei started getting its hands into another related business, that of selling laptops. With a product name like the MateBook X Pro and a distinctly familiar design, there is little doubt whose market share Huawei is after.

This year, Huawei has come out with a 2019 model that retains not just the name but a few details as well. We dig in to find out if what has changed is enough to justify the new and higher price tag.

Simplehuman Rectangular Sensor Can Review: A $250 trash investment

Simplehuman Rectangular Sensor Can Review: A $250 trash investment

When I mention the cost of this garbage can, you may recoil in horror. How dare I even consider recommending anyone pay two hundred and fifty US dollars for a can into which garbage should go? I thought the same thing at first, then I considered how often I'd replaced my kitchen garbage can in the last decade. Then I got to thinking about how much I hated the fact that no garbage can I'd ever owned really did a great job of masking smells of any significant strength, ever. Then I wondered if a can of this caliber could actually be a good investment.

Welcome to Apocalypseburg LEGO Review: Epic Ape!

Today we're looking at The LEGO MOVIE 2: The Second Part LEGO set 70840 "Welcome to Apocalypseburg!" This is easily one of the most massive LEGO sets we've put together and certainly the most extravagant in the minifigure universe. This set is a whopping 3,178 pieces large, and it's not for the feeble of heart. It's a doozy and a half, of that you can be sure.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Review: We have a new king

Samsung Galaxy S10 Review: We have a new king

The Samsung Galaxy S10 doesn't fold, it doesn't have 5G - not quite yet, anyway - and it looks a whole lot like the Galaxy S9 from last year, but none of that precludes it from being the smartphone to beat in 2019. While curiosities like the Galaxy Fold may be teasing unusual form-factors, and next-generation 5G networks promise ridiculous speed for those lucky few in launch markets, the Galaxy S10 and S10+ bring their formidable talents to bear on the mainstream.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Review: AirPods lessons learned

Samsung Galaxy Buds Review: AirPods lessons learned

Samsung is no stranger to wireless earbuds, but the Galaxy Buds' predecessors have never quite aced the experience in the way that this new model does. Arriving alongside the Samsung Galaxy S10, the Galaxy Buds promise the convenience of AirPods but with the sort of customization Android fans love. With a $129 price tag, though, is this all too good to be true?
