Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 Review: Behold the Display Beast

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 Review: Behold the Display Beast

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 review you're about to read is centered on battery life, real-world use, and long-term viability. Some of this will need to be estimated based on the amount of time we've had the device thus far - we've not yet had the Mi Mix 3 for a long term. As we continue to use the Mi Mix 3, we'll continue to update the review.

The new Nissan Leaf is the everyman EV

The new Nissan Leaf is the everyman EV

You could forgive the Nissan Leaf for feeling overlooked in the electric car segment. Tesla may get the lion's share of the attention, particularly over the past eighteen months with the Model 3, but it's Nissan's far more affordable EV that has become the world's best-seller. Now, there's a brand new Leaf, completely reworked to reflect the changes in the electric vehicle landscape since the original debuted back in 2010.

2018 Lincoln Navigator Review: Brash 3-row SUV royalty

2018 Lincoln Navigator Review: Brash 3-row SUV royalty

Big, lavish SUVs are big, money-making business right now, and little screams comfortable excess like the Lincoln Navigator. Two decades of the automaker's burly people-carrier - punctuated with appearances in rap songs and spats with Cadillac's Escalade - have seen it both grow-up and glow-up, but it's with the arrival of the fourth-generation that the Navigator has truly reclaimed its ostentatious identity.

2018 Jaguar E-PACE Review: Mistaken Identity

2018 Jaguar E-PACE Review: Mistaken Identity

"No, you're thinking of the I-PACE, this is the normal one. No, you do need to put gas into it, it's not electric. No, I don't know why they named them like that, either." Like trotting out the 0-60 time of a supercar, or the tow rating for a truck, you get used to explaining the 2018 Jaguar E-PACE's oddest feature - its name - at gas stations or in parking lots.

Surface Go with Linux Review: almost the perfect open source notepad

Surface Go with Linux Review: almost the perfect open source notepad

You have probably had your fill of Surface Go reviews that seem to split the tech world in two. You’ve also most likely seen the brawls between the Surface Go and the iPad Pro, especially those revolving around the rhetoric of real PCs. So why not have yet another Surface Go review? This time, however, we’ll take a rather different spin and highlight one aspect that really does make the Surface Go a “real PC”: being able to install other operating systems like Linux. And in that regard, it is near perfect as an on-the-go Linux digital notepad.

PDP Nintendo Switch Fight Pad Review: A solid 3rd-party GameCube controller

PDP Nintendo Switch Fight Pad Review: A solid 3rd-party GameCube controller

Were it not for Super Smash Bros., the GameCube controller would probably be a distant memory for most people. A curiosity of the past, perhaps, given its rather unique design and button layout. A stepping stone on the path to the more refined gamepads we have today. Thanks to Super Smash Bros., though, the GameCube controller is none of those things, and instead it’s alive and kicking. Though the original Wii had a set of GameCube controller ports all its own, Nintendo eventually figured out a way to bring GameCube support forward to the Wii U, all in the name of Super Smash Bros. and the Melee veterans who love it.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate review: Greatness within reach

Super Smash Bros Ultimate review: Greatness within reach

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is here and it’s unquestionably the biggest Switch game of the year. While every Smash Bros. release is a major event, there’s a certain excitement for this one, as all fighters that have ever appeared in a Smash Bros. game are returning for Ultimate. Pair that roster, which now includes more than 70 characters, with a map pool that climbs over 100, and we’ve got quite the massive game on our hands. Even though it sounds like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a balancing team’s worst nightmare, it’s definitely exciting for us veterans who have been playing since the first game. It begs the question, though: Can you have too much of a good thing?

LG V40 ThinQ Review: Unique in colorful quality

LG V40 ThinQ Review: Unique in colorful quality

The LG V40 ThinQ is a unique smartphone because of its multiple alternate trajectories in smartphone trends. This is a phone that amps up everything I loved about the LG V35 (my favorite phone of 2018). Instead of running with the trends of one smartphone company or another, LG seems to have done a professional job of pinpointing the best elements available in the hardware industry today - creating, in the process, one of what's easily one of the most impressive phones of the tail end of this year.

Amazon Echo Input Review: Alexa in your own speakers

Amazon Echo Input Review: Alexa in your own speakers

Amazon's Echo smart speakers typically work better on the smart side, rather than the speaker quality front, but the new Echo Input promises to pair Alexa with your own choice of speakers. Part of the company's wide-ranging gush of Alexa hardware this year, the $34.99 gadget is effectively an Echo Dot that can only talk back to you if it's plugged into an external audio player.

Razer Phone 2 Review: The Slight Difference

Razer Phone 2 Review: The Slight Difference

The Razer Phone 2 once again offers a unique smartphone package to a still-stagnant smartphone market. We're no longer in a place where there's a massive number of people looking to buy their first phone (in the USA, anyway), we're at the point at which most people have had a couple smartphones - or more - in their adult lives. Now's the time to release something different - something that takes a chance with hardware design and features that appeal to some, but not all.

The 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 is unrepentant excess

The 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 is unrepentant excess

Few vehicles are as over-specified for their typical habitat as the 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 and the Mercedes-Benz G550. The automaker’s iconic “G Wagon” may be a legitimate off-roader, but its unmistakable design is more familiar from Malibu than out in the mud. With this latest generation, then, the question has to be whether Mercedes has diluted the G-Class for the inevitable on-road tastes, or if this rebooted beast is as flagrant as ever.

Puppyoo T10 Home Vacuum Review

Puppyoo T10 Home Vacuum Review

I did not expect to be reviewing a vacuum this season. Not least of all because I've had the same pet-aimed vacuum cleaner for the past decade, and it's not as if there's a major calling out there for reviews of vacuum cleaners. But this device was strange - and intriguing enough that I had to give it a whirl. As it turned out, I didn't know what I'd been missing these past 10 years. Apparently vacuums have gotten a lot more awesome since I was last in the market for a tool such as this.
