ASUS’ Thunderbolt 3 external graphics box is the dream for mobile power-users

ASUS’ Thunderbolt 3 external graphics box is the dream for mobile power-users

ASUS is expanding its range of external graphics docks today with the announcement of the XG Station Pro. Perhaps meant to be the more subtle brother of the gaming-focused ROG XG Station 2, the XG Station Pro's purpose is to bring desktop-level graphics power to your more portable notebook. The design of the XG Station Pro is certainly more subdued than that of the ROG XG Station 2, but both of them share some non-aesthetic similarities nonetheless.

ASUS AiMesh turns regular routers into an eero alternative

Mesh networking is becoming an increasingly popular solution to extending the range of home and business WiFi networks over a large area. Getting started with mesh networking, however, can be a bit on the expensive side. Getting up and running with a mesh network can mean having to replace your old router and purchase a bundle that comes with a new router and the nodes that will form your mesh network.

ASUS NovaGo and HP ENVY x2 hands-on: Snapdragon’s Windows stars

ASUS NovaGo and HP ENVY x2 hands-on: Snapdragon’s Windows stars

Welcome to the familiar: I've just spent some time with the first Windows 10 on Snapdragon devices, HP's ENVY x2 and ASUS's NovaGo, and they're both new and old in one. Unveiled today at Qualcomm's Snapdragon Summit, the two new ultraportables - one a 2-in-1, and the other a detachable tablet - promise a whole new way of working on the move. In your hands, though, they feel much like the Windows 10 machines we've already seen.

ASUS NovaGo Windows 10 on Snapdragon laptop has 22hr battery

ASUS NovaGo Windows 10 on Snapdragon laptop has 22hr battery

The Snapdragon 835 is moving onto its next target: always connected PCs, first with the $599 ASUS NovaGo. Having found its way into more than 120 mobile devices since it launched last year, Qualcomm's chipset is now looking to larger form-factors, along with a tight partnership with Microsoft. That means Windows 10 on laptops, 2-in-1s, and tablets that have significantly longer battery life than any Intel or AMD-powered machine.

ASUS ZenFone Max Plus is an odd 18:9 mid-range phone

ASUS ZenFone Max Plus is an odd 18:9 mid-range phone

Not enough ZenFones for you this year? Here’s one more and it’s a strange one at that. The 18:9 screen ratio is often used by smartphone makers to mark their high-end devices. ASUS, however, missed that boat when it put out the ZenFone 4 series a few months back. But instead of pushing out an even higher model, it has curiously slapped on 18:9 screens on mid-range models, like this mouthful of an ASUS ZenFone Max Plus.

Verizon ZenFone V Live goes live, Galaxy Tab E 32 GB in tow

Remember the ASUS ZenFone V? The Verizon-exclusive smartphone launched not too long ago, not even two months ago, and yet now the two companies have come out with yet another exclusive. But if you were expecting the ZenFone V Live to be an upgrade, you’d be thoroughly disappointed. Unless you’re the type that loves to livestream and needs to look perfect in front of the camera. In which case the smartphone’s “live beautification” feature is probably for you.

ASUS ZenFone 4, ZenFone 4 Pro now available in the US

ASUS ZenFone 4, ZenFone 4 Pro now available in the US

ASUS unleashed a whirlwind of new smartphones last August, six in total and all bearing the same ZenFone 4 branding. Somewhat surprisingly, it has decided to bring almost all of those to the US, though not all at the same time. It started with one of the two ZenFone 4 Max models last month and now, just before the month is over, it is bringing the titular ZenFone 4 flagships, as well as the second ZenFone 4 Max.

Best phone camera of 2017 : Seek out PDAF

Best phone camera of 2017 : Seek out PDAF

Today we're going to take a look at what it means to buy a smartphone with a camera "that just takes good pictures." You know, the sort of phone that just lets you snap a picture and it won't be blurry. I'm here to tell you that this phone does exist, but that actually snapping a reasonably sharp photo is not quite as simple as just pointing and shooting.

Verizon-exclusive ZenFone V comes with ZenMotion gesture control

A lot of attention is being given on the LG given the announcement of its US launch, but there might be another Android smartphone that might be more interesting to some users. At least those under Verizon's network. It might not seem to be all that given its price, but the ASUS ZenFone V, exclusive to and now available from Big Red, has a few punches to throw at more than half the price of your regular 2017 flagship.

ASUS ZenFone V is another odd Verizon exclusive

ASUS ZenFone V is another odd Verizon exclusive

Verizon has just lost its exclusivity with Motorola’s Droid series and with Sprint’s Essential exclusive as well as AT&T’s BlackBerry KEYone, the carrier might be in need of a new partner. It seems that the new partner is ASUS. After the now practically useless, thanks to Google’s own ARCore, ZenFone AR, Verizon and ASUS have apparently collaborated on a never before seen ZenFone V. And while it might not be the ZenFone 5, it could very well be the ZenFone 3.5.
