The 2018 Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is the perfect hybrid

The 2018 Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is the perfect hybrid

It was pretty clear when Porsche announced the 2018 Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo that it wasn't going to be your normal hybrid. The closest the automaker's cars get to green is usually their paint job, after all, but the shapely Sport Turismo claims to be more eco-conscious than you'd expect. Of course, since this is a Porsche it couldn't just be about saving the planet.

OnePlus 6T Review : Clawing its way to the top

OnePlus 6T Review : Clawing its way to the top

This week we're taking a look at the OnePlus 6T, the second of the company's yearly smartphone duo. The OnePlus 6T isn't the same as previous "tock" phones in the OnePlus "tick tock" strategy. Instead of refining the phone they've released earlier in the year, this device is a bit more of an extreme departure. As far as smartphones go, this device is significantly different from its most immediate predecessor.

AmazonBasics Microwave Review: Alexa gets cooking

AmazonBasics Microwave Review: Alexa gets cooking

"Why are you talking to the microwave?" Being the spouse of an early-adopter has never been especially easy, but the arrival of the smart home - and voice-controlled systems like Amazon Alexa in particular - has certainly magnified the potential for confusion. How, then, to explain why the AmazonBasics Microwave powered by Alexa is really for your tech-tired partner's benefit, not yours?

Amazon Fire TV Recast Review: Easy cord-cutting

Amazon Fire TV Recast Review: Easy cord-cutting

Amazon's Fire TV Recast isn't just a DVR for cord-cutters, it actually cuts any physical connection between the set-top box and your TV itself. Instead, the newest addition to the Fire TV line offers up a wealth of free, over-the-air channels and the storage to record them, then beams that wirelessly to your TVs, smartphones, and Echo smart displays, complete with a splash of Alexa convenience. Sounds good, but has the Fire TV Recast missed the boat in this age of on-demand entertainment?

The 2018 BMW i3s is seriously underrated in one key way

The 2018 BMW i3s is seriously underrated in one key way

In a growing line-up of electrified options, the 2018 BMW i3s still somehow stands out. Much has been made of the i3's divisive external design, and in many ways the new 2018 i3s only exaggerates that: bigger wheels, more aggressive bumpers, and gloss-black trim. As I found behind the wheel, though, the i3's key charm remains what's inside.

2018 Audi TT RS Review: The Best Luxury Sports Car for the Money

2018 Audi TT RS Review: The Best Luxury Sports Car for the Money

I’ve never been a fan of the Audi TT, the shape is too bulbous for my liking and I’ve found previous generations underpowered. So, it’s fair to say I approached the 2018 TT RS with trepidation. Could this most-potent of the TT family win me over with its balance of practicality and performance?

iPad Pro Review (2018): Am I wrong, or is Apple?

iPad Pro Review (2018): Am I wrong, or is Apple?

Nobody can agree on whether a tablet is a computer, or indeed what a computer really is, and Apple's new iPad Pro only pours fuel into that controversy. Faster, more flexible, and more resolutely targeting professionals who demand performance with their portability, nobody can argue with the fact that the 2018 iPad Pro is Apple's hardware expertise in full effect. Whether it's a replacement for your laptop, though, is a far more personal thing.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Review (2018)

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Review (2018)

The price of the Kindle Paperwhite 2018 is right on point for what it offers. That's just so long as you're not looking for something other than an e-ink display and Amazon's own UI instead of a more open OS. If you're only comparing e-readers, this might well be the best choice in the world on the market right this minute. Today we're reviewing the Kindle Paperwhite 2018, the newest version of Amazon's midrange (just right) e-reader device.

Palm Phone (2018) Review: A sign of future greatness

Palm Phone (2018) Review: A sign of future greatness

The resurrected Palm brand had an idea for a very tiny smartphone-like device that was more like a smartwatch than it was a mobile phone. They created a device just called Palm, and they've made this device exclusive to Verizon. Verizon will sell this device to users who already have a phone or are looking to buy a phone and will pair it with said phone. This is basically a smaller version of your primary smartphone.

iPhone XR review: Compelling compromise

iPhone XR review: Compelling compromise

The most interesting iPhone of 2018 isn't Apple's most expensive, or its largest: it's the iPhone XR, cheapest of the trio of new smartphones. The new entry-level iPhone may look like the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max at first glance, but that familiar style masks a handset that is, at $749, at least $250 cheaper, inherently compromised, but in the end arguably more compelling.

Vivo NEX S Review – A valiant first attempt

Vivo NEX S Review – A valiant first attempt

This year has seen a number of unconventional smartphones but few can probably outdo the bezel-less, notch-less smartphones with elevating cameras. Vivo blazed the trail with its Apex prototype that it said wouldn’t be commercialized. A few months later, the Vivo NEX S launched with almost exactly the same features as the prototype. But is the NEX S all flair and no substance? Is it just a smartphone with a pretty face and a gimmick but nothing more? We take a hard good luck at the Vivo NEX S to bring you the answers.

Oppo F9 Review : Well Balanced and Beautiful

Oppo F9 Review : Well Balanced and Beautiful

The Oppo F9 is a window into the future, delivering a next-generation combination of decent functionality and features with a surprisingly low price. When the Oppo F9 was first revealed, it was in the first wave of the new waterdrop notches, easily one of the most elegant solutions for the covering of maximum phone frontside while retaining a front-facing camera. This phone comes from a place where you do not have to pay over one thousand dollars just to get the latest tech - a trend we're glad to see Oppo spreading across the planet.
