Roborock S6 Review: One-button simplicity

Roborock S6 Review: One-button simplicity

Over the past several weeks we've been using the Roborock S6, a robot vacuum made to take on the biggest names in the industry. Roborock does not have the name recognition of the Ecovacs, the Neato, or iRobot's Roomba, but it's a robot. It doesn't know how popular it is - all it need to know is where to go to clean. With LDS Navigation and suction power equal to that of a Neato Botvac D7 Connected, this machine is ready to pick up all your dust immediately.

Acer Swift 7 Review: The impossibly thin ultrabook

Acer has launched one of the thinnest, lightest laptops available with the new Swift 7 model. This insanely svelte ultrabook sports a 14-inch display, two USB-C ports, and an impossibly slim design that demands attention. The laptop arguably sets a new bar for ultrabooks as far as portability is concerned, but how does it perform as an everyday work and play laptop?

2019 Audi e-tron Review: Grading on a Curve

2019 Audi e-tron Review: Grading on a Curve

Sometimes it takes the unexpected to really get the true measure of a car, but you can't say the 2019 Audi e-tron shies from a challenge. First in what the automaker expects to be a whole series of "e-tron" branded electric vehicles, the new SUV isn't just attempting to demonstrate that established car companies can keep up with new tech, but to change the conversation on what's important when it comes to EVs. An impromptu weather A/B test was just a bonus.

Lenovo Smart Clock Review: Google Assistant for the bedroom

Lenovo Smart Clock Review: Google Assistant for the bedroom

The Lenovo Smart Clock is undoubtedly the cutest smart display out there, but it takes more than soft-touch charm to earn a spot on the nightstand. The $79 addition to the company's smart display range is now the cheapest way to get the Google Assistant with a touchscreen, but it's actually an unexpectedly different experience in use than, say, a Google Nest Hub.

Google Pixel 3a Review: A question of compromise

Google Pixel 3a Review: A question of compromise

When it comes to smartphones, it’s easy to get caught up on the “more is best” treadmill. More megapixels, more gigabytes and gigahertz, more camera sensors... and more money, of course. Then along comes the Google Pixel 3a and slams the emergency stop button.

OPPO Reno 10x Zoom Review

Optical zoom seems to be the new obsession in the smartphone camera market, with the likes of Huawei, Honor, and OnePlus trying to beat one another. But before any of these companies made their move, OPPO was already playing around with periscope-style zoom lenses. With the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom, the company has finally used its own technology to its own advantage. But does the latest OPPO flagship live up to the expectation it set for itself and does it have more to offer than just a great camera? We zoom in to find out.

Ricoh GR III Review: Tiny camera, huge appeal

Ricoh GR III Review: Tiny camera, huge appeal

The smartphone may have replaced a dedicated camera for many, but the Ricoh GR III is here to remind us that's not universally the case. The latest in Ricoh's series of super-pocketable street shooters, it packs the highest resolution sensor yet - and, at $899, the highest price tag too.

Hopsy SUB Compact Tap Review: Mini beer keg machine in effect

Hopsy SUB Compact Tap Review: Mini beer keg machine in effect

Over the last couple weeks we've had a Hopsy SUB Compact Tap on the review bench, and it's been pouring. This machine is a "compact home draft appliance", a machine that pours beer from miniature kegs. The kegs are delivered each month, and I would (if I'd actually subscribed) be sent six Mini-Kegs per month at approximately $15 USD a unit.

OnePlus 7 Pro Review: A hero phone with a price to match

OnePlus 7 Pro Review: A hero phone with a price to match

Despite the price being highest at the outset, the OnePlus 7 Pro might well be the company's best value proposition yet. The company is no longer one hell-bent on selling a phone that's shockingly inexpensive. Instead, the OnePlus 7 Pro is a doorway into the future for the company - a future in which OnePlus is able to offer high-end features in a phone that's every bit as much a hero as the biggest names in the industry.

Black Shark 2 Review: The new mid-tier ‘gaming phone’ master

Black Shark 2 Review: The new mid-tier ‘gaming phone’ master

The Black Shark 2 is a gaming phone made by a Xiaomi associated brand. This device is marketed as a 'gaming phone' which means, here, that it's able to play even the most daunting and graphics-intensive mobile games with relative ease - AND that it has bright, shiny lights. It's not unlike what you'd find in your everyday average gamer-made PC, what with all the LEDs and liquid cooling and whatnot. But is it worth the cash?
