Insta360 ONE X Review: an unbelievable upgrade

Insta360 ONE X Review: an unbelievable upgrade

Last year, Insta360, one of the first few companies that made 360-degree video recording accessible to the masses, launched the Insta360 ONE. It offered more ways, many of them novel and fun, to create 360-degree content without having to carry bulky equipment. But while it mostly did deliver on those creative features, the actual quality of the output still left some things to be desired. This year, the company is coming out with the Insta360 ONE X and it’s like a completely different product. We take it for a long ride, actually multiple ones, to demonstrate how much it has improved in just a year’s time.

Vizio P Series Review

Vizio P Series Review

What do you really need in a modern TV these days? Picture quality is, of course, a given, with terms like “4K”, “HDR”, “FALD”, and “Quantum Dots” being thrown around in marketing spiels and materials. With increasingly connected homes, Internet connection for streaming is almost expected as well. Maybe even some smart home control, too. And beyond being just functional, these “smart” TVs are expected to look just as nice as any decoration in your living room. In all but one of those, Vizio’s 2018 P Series promises to check all those dots. And so we take it for a spin to see, no pun intended, if it can deliver.

OPPO Find X Review – Innovative, but not quite there

OPPO Find X Review – Innovative, but not quite there

Everyone wants to get rid of bezels these days. Few, however, dare to take that to their logical conclusions. We’ve seen Vivo’s pioneering idea in that regard with the NEX S. But being first doesn’t always mean being better, especially without the benefit of hindsight. OPPO has more than just hindsight to bank on, though, and can call upon its experience and partners in crafting its own style of a bezel-less phone with a slider. But is the OPPO Find X really that much better? We put this one of a kind smartphone to the test to bring you that answer.

Rocketbook Everlast Review: Tomorrow’s Paper Today

Rocketbook Everlast Review: Tomorrow’s Paper Today

A paper notebook review on a site about gadgets and living the digital lifestyle? Even with the prevalence of smartphones, the Internet, and computers in general, there is a growing “counter-culture” that advocates the benefits of paper or, at the very least, writing things by hand. Rather than take one side to the detriment of the other, the folks at Rocketbook got their heads together to develop solutions, not compromises, that bridge the analog and digital in ways you may never have thought of before. Besides, the Rocketbook Everlast paper isn’t really paper anyway.

Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse review: Precision comes at a price

Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse review: Precision comes at a price

With the continued rise of eSports comes a greater focus on the kind of PC gaming accessories we’re using. If you’re a pro gamer, your mouse and keyboard suddenly become just as important as the hardware inside your PC, as they’re what enable you to flex your skill. It shouldn’t be a surprise, then, that amateur players of competitive games want access to the same hardware the pros use, and Logitech is more than happy to oblige.

Meizu 16th Review

Meizu 16th Review

You might not rank Meizu among the top smartphone makers in the market, be it in its home country of China let alone the rest of the world. Not that it hasn’t tried hard, with interesting yet eccentric standouts like the Meizu PRO 5 Ubuntu Edition and the double-faced Meizu PRO 7. Those, however, haven’t exactly put it close to the top nor have they brought in the dough. Meizu has since then changed its strategy, shifting its phones towards more conventional designs and features to try and pull in users who need a serious smartphone. And this Meizu 16th is perhaps the most serious one of all.

Moto Z3 Review: Waiting for 5G

Moto Z3 Review: Waiting for 5G

The Moto Z3 is a curious device, mostly because its reason for existing hasn’t been released yet. The Z3 will one day be compatible with the admittedly impressive 5G Moto Mod, a detachable accessory that’s the product of a team up between Verizon, Motorola, and Qualcomm. The problem, and what leaves me scratching my head, is that the 5G mod won’t be available until sometime next year, while the Moto Z3 is launching this month as a Verizon exclusive.

3Doodler Create+ Review: a different kind of creativity

3Doodler Create+ Review: a different kind of creativity

3D printing has definitely changed the way we make things, especially when it comes to creating things previously impossible if not impractical for hobbyists and small groups. But “normal” 3D printing still had an industrial and utilitarian feel to it. While you can definitely print out intricate and beautifully designed objects, it was less hands-on than some creatives might like. That’s where 3D printing pens like 3Doodler’s new Create+ comes in and we put our hands and minds on one to see just how well promise translates to reality.

Studio19 Solo E500X-EQ Review

Studio19 Solo E500X-EQ Review

Although Bluetooth speakers aren’t exactly new or novel, the rise of smart assistants and the depreciation of the venerable headphone jack have put them under a sometimes harsh spotlight. No longer was it enough for them to “just work”, they needed to sound great, look great, and still be affordable to the masses. Often, two or even three of these pillars go missing for the sake of the others. Studio19 has attempted to offer that trifecta of qualities in the Solo E500X-EQ. We give it a closer look and listen to find out if it is truly that balanced or if it falls short on one of its legs.

LG G7 ThinQ Review: sounds better than it looks

LG G7 ThinQ Review: sounds better than it looks

Although it is not exactly in dire straits like, say, HTC, LG has had a rough few quarters. For 2018, it supposedly went back to the drawing board and would be focusing on a few but key premium models. The latter resulted in at least four V series variants in the past 7 or so months while the former gave birth to the LG G7 ThinQ. Billed as the first in the G series to bear its ThinQ brand, LG’s 2018 flagship puts AI front and center. That, however, is hardly its only selling factor and may not even be its biggest strength. We take a deep dive into the LG G7 ThinQ to see if it has enough power to lift LG out of its slump.

Wyze Cam Pan Review

Wyze Cam Pan Review

Wyze made a name for itself with the launch of a $20 cube-shaped home security camera, and it recently brought attention back to that model with an update at the same price point. Now the company is back with yet another model, the Wyze Cam Pan. As the name suggests, this new model is capable of pan and tilt, greatly expanding its abilities for only ten bucks more.
