Google Pixel 5a Review

Google Pixel 5a Review

Google's a-series phones have always been the pick of the Pixel range, and the new Pixel 5a with 5G is no different. Straying little from the recipe of minimalistic hardware and design, balanced performance, and a knock-out camera, this latest addition to the affordable end of the spectrum may not use Google's homegrown Tensor chip as the upcoming Pixel 6 promises, but it also costs just $449.

Qualcomm Smartphone for Snapdragon Insiders Review: An Expensive Test

Qualcomm Smartphone for Snapdragon Insiders Review: An Expensive Test

The allure of what you can't ordinarily have is strong. The smartphone world isn't short on options, whether your interests lie in photography, mobile gaming, or 5G connectivity, and yet the idea that there could be something more, something typically out of reach, is a compelling one. How else to explain Qualcomm's Smartphone for Snapdragon Insiders, a $1,499 promise of the things other phone-makers wouldn't let you buy.

Naenka Runner Pro Headphones Review

Naenka Runner Pro Headphones Review

A great deal of attention has been given to truly wireless or TWS earbuds, but, as they say, no one size fits all. There are some people and use cases where even these minuscule audio accessories are not a proper fit, especially when it comes to users with more athletic needs. A special breed of headphones has been designed exactly for this purpose, and Naenka's new Runner Pro bone conduction open ear headphones try to bring together the best features for people with active lifestyles that need to go about their days in confidence and freedom.

Earin A-3 Earphones Review

Earin A-3 Earphones Review

With the popularity of Apple's AirPods and the congestion of the wireless earbuds market, it's no surprise you might not have heard of some brands like Earin. The Swedish company, however, launched what may have been the market's first truly wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds, predating the AirPods, and has gathered a small but faithful following through the years. This year, its big ambitions come in a small package, testing a different strategy to get it heard, so to speak. The Earin A-3 is aiming its guns at the Apple AirPods or the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro and we put it through the wringer to see, or rather hear, whether its petite size could actually stand up to the giants.

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 Review

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 Review

I have never straddled a charging baby rhinoceros, but the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 is what I'd expect it to feel like. All snorting angst and playful gurgle: your own contribution to the soundtrack a barely-stifled giggle. The entryway to AMG's performance range is getting fairly crowded these days, but the GLB 250's sportier sibling manages to stand out all the same.

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Review

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Review

Talk about a glow-up: the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander is leagues ahead of its crossover predecessor, and all it took was a Nissan intervention. That's not to say the new Outlander and its cousin, the 2021 Rogue, are badge-buddies, with Mitsubishi throwing in niceties like a third row of seating to help set its compact SUV apart.

Fauna Spiro Transparent Brown Audio Glasses Review

Fauna Spiro Transparent Brown Audio Glasses Review

Google Glasses gave us a glimpse of what smart glasses could be but also dashed hopes they will generally be available any time soon. While the concept of always having a display in front of your eyes still needs time to mature, smart glasses seemed to be on the right track when it came to handling audio. Years after the Google Glass' commercial demise, a new breed of "audio eyewear" devices have sprung up. Fauna Audio is one of the companies that jumped on that train, and we took its Spiro Transparent Brown Audio Glasses for a spin to see, or rather hear, what the fuss is all about.

Pokemon Unite review: Big fun, big concerns

Pokemon Unite review: Big fun, big concerns

If you thought that Pokemon Unite would be a lackluster attempt at a Pokemon-themed MOBA, you definitely aren't alone. Pre-release trailers didn’t do the game any favors, but now that it's here, the people who gave it a chance are finding that it's actually a lot of fun to play. Not only that, but Pokemon Unite could potentially serve as a good introduction for MOBA newcomers, turning an entirely new generation of people onto a genre that often feels like it's winding down.

2021 Volkswagen Atlas Review

2021 Volkswagen Atlas Review

Before SUVs turned into sports-car aping, head-turning, lavishly equipped status symbols, they were meant to simply be a practical way to transport a family - and its detritus - with maximum efficiency. On that front, the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas is a midsize crossover of the old school, and while that may not add up to sex appeal, it finds its allure in different ways.

TerraMaster D5 Thunderbolt 3 Review – Decent DAS with a few flaws

TerraMaster D5 Thunderbolt 3 Review – Decent DAS with a few flaws

We've covered a lot of Network-Attached Storage or NAS products here at SlashGear, especially as the data storage needs of people get more complicated even at home. These NAS devices can sometimes even function as your personal cloud services, which can be accessed both locally and remotely. For some people, however, the simplicity and straightforwardness of Direct-Attached Storage or DAS is more convenient and, more importantly, more affordable. TerraMaster's D5 Thunderbolt 3 is one such DAS option in the market, and we take it for a spin to see if it's worth the price it's asking for.

2022 Audi RS e-tron GT Review

2022 Audi RS e-tron GT Review

It seems a long time since I was lucky enough to get a first crack of the Audi e-tron GT about three years ago. At that point the sleek four-door EV was still a prototype, though even then its focus was fairly clear. While Audi's high-performance electric grand tourer may be the mechanical twin of the Porsche Taycan, here that all drives to a different tune. Porsche touts the Taycan as a four-door all-electric sportscar, as close right now to a four-seater electric 911 that you can get. Audi's e-tron GT, meanwhile, is a genuine grand tourer, albeit one with the same propensity for speed as the Taycan.

2021 Lexus LX 570 Review

2021 Lexus LX 570 Review

The idea of a "luxury off-roader" isn't quite so strange now, as it was when Lexus first launched the LX series in 1995. These days, lavish SUVs are par for the course, and if you're an automaker without one in the line-up then you're missing out on the meat of the market. People can't get enough of the upright driving position and all that burly, "I can go anywhere" styling.
