iPhone 11 Review: When enough is enough

iPhone 11 Review: When enough is enough

Don't think of the iPhone 11 as a compromise: think of it as the phone equivalent of Apple's Greatest Hits album. Replacing the iPhone XR - and, at $699, an aggressive $50 cheaper to begin with - the iPhone 11 takes some of the best technologies of recent phones and combines them into one compelling handset.

The OnePlus 7T is essentially the OnePlus 7 Pro with a few key details changed, just a smidgen. Today we're taking a peek at how well the OnePlus 7T stands up to the OnePlus 7 Pro as well as the rest of the market.

Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro (Redmi K20 Pro) Review : Shiny Low Profile Hero

The smartphone you see before you represents everything good about reading tech news today. It's very easy to get wrapped up in believing the best phones only come from the most visible brands - Samsung, Apple, etcetera - but that's not always true. Imagine there's a phone that's just as good as far more expensive devices but isn't made by a brand you recognize - could such a device exist?

Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ Review: The difference a Plus makes

Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ Review: The difference a Plus makes

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ should be a tougher sell than it actually is. A $1,100 Android phone, scaled so vast that many will struggle to comfortably hold it, the defining feature of which is a pop-out stylus... and yet here we are, in 2019, with a flagship that boasts such user goodwill that even a history of immolation cannot derail it. As always, Samsung has thrown the kitchen sink at its newest Note, but now more than ever the results are mixed.

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

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.

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?

OPPO F11 Pro Review : Thunder Black, from good to great

OPPO F11 Pro Review : Thunder Black, from good to great

I've been using the OPPO F11 Pro for a few weeks, and I've come to the conclusion that we've reached peak smartphone. For the average smartphone user, we've reached a point at which there's really not a significant amount of difference between features in modern smartphones - even across price segments. The OPPO F11 Pro is a perfect example of this, as it's called a "midrange" phone while it operates with top-tier abilities in all areas of any extreme importance.

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.
