ASUS ScreenPad brings Apple’s Touch Bar to touchpads

ASUS has sometimes blazed the trail in terms of innovative design, like the now common 2-in-1 detachable form factor or the sadly retired PadFone "phone in a tablet" device line. At other times, it seems to play catch up, like with the Lenovo Yoga-like "Flip" laptops. It seems that ASUS might have something in the works that's a combination of the two. Called the "ScreenPad" this mysterious device or peripheral seems to be designed to provide the same extended control that the new MacBook Touch Bars do, but on a laptop's touchpad instead.

ASUS ZenFone 5 on DxOMark: surprising mid-range contender

ASUS ZenFone 5 on DxOMark: surprising mid-range contender

If there's one thing ASUS might be known for in the smartphone market is its confusing branding strategy. Each new ZenFone generation has countless variants and it's difficult to know offhand which is which. The ZenFone 5, for example, may be the standard-bearer for this year's ASUS lineup but it is actually the "premium mid-range" model. It also happens to be the first ASUS smartphone to be reviewed under DxOMark's revamped tests. And fortunately for ASUS, the odds seem to be in its favor.

ASUS Lyra Trio WiFi mesh pre-order now available

There is very little these days that differentiate homes and small offices in terms of network needs. Multiple devices, increased Internet usage, and nontrivial room layouts leave simple home routers ineffective. Sometimes you even need more than just one router to cover all your bases. For those instances, you'd want a WiFi mesh instead and ASUS is positioning its Lyra Trio, first revealed at CES 2018, as the perfect mix of power, ease of use, and peace of mind.

Android notch: iPhone X look-alikes you can buy

Android notch: iPhone X look-alikes you can buy

Apple has always been regarded as a trendsetter, whether or not the trends have made sense or not. No matter how much some critics bash it, Apple’s trends, especially around design, often get copied by others. “Others” here being Android phones. Nowhere is that perhaps truer than the divisive notch on the iPhone X. Many of Apple’s own fans have lambasted it but, if MWC and certain leaks are to be considered, it’s pretty much the next big trend alongside bezel-less screens. So if you’re in the market for a notched Android phone and don’t mind being compared a lot with the iPhone X, here are some of the top choices, from those already in the market to those still coming soon.

Steering clear of both Samsung and Sony, ASUS has just announced a dizzying number of phones under its ZenFone line, almost all of them under the ZenFone 5 generation. And to make matters even more confusing, the Taiwanese OEM just announced a non-5 ZenFone model as well, one that was already launched late last year. But while the new ZenFone 5 phones are still coming, the not so new ZenFone Max Plus M1 is now available for purchase in the US.
