Razer Phone Unboxing: Devil’s in the Details

Razer Phone Unboxing: Devil’s in the Details

Inside the box sent to me for a SlashGear review is the Razer Phone - but more than that, it's a presentation of a phone worthy of the best on the market. It's almost as if Razer is trying to tell the end user that they've bought into a device that's more than just the Android phone they find at the top of this box. Inside is the work of a team of engineers that are obviously proud of the work they've done.

iPhone X first impressions: The 10 year itch

iPhone X first impressions: The 10 year itch

Dear friends and SlashGear readers, if you pre-ordered the iPhone X in time for delivery on November 3, or even within a week of that, congratulations. If you didn’t pre-order for whatever reason, and have even the slightest interest in Apple's new flagship, then I’m very sorry to tell you that when your friends, family, and colleagues show up with their shiny new iPhone X, you’re really going to wish you did. As of writing, the current shipping estimate is five to six weeks out. It's time to cash in whatever connections, favors, or blackmail material you have with your carrier’s rep to have them set aside a unit for you. Either that, or get in line to buy one at an Apple Store this Friday. Trust me, it's worth it.

Lenovo ThinkPad 25 First Look and Unboxing : Memories Reborn

Lenovo ThinkPad 25 First Look and Unboxing : Memories Reborn

My first impression of the Lenovo ThinkPad 25 is wholly positive - but it's not because this device is the latest and the greatest in high-tech innovation. Instead, this Lenovo notebook feels more like a fantasy - a good fantasy - in which the phrase "if it isn't broke, don't fix it" works in the world of devices that age out after 2 or 3 years of use. What we've got here is a real rarity - retro done right.

LG G6 gets a T-Mobile unboxing, AT&T, Verizon launch in spring

LG G6 gets a T-Mobile unboxing, AT&T, Verizon launch in spring

The LG G6 is live and official and is definitely one of the most interesting smartphones this year. Its 18:9 screen is just begging to be tested in the real world. That said, LG has so far left out the details of when the smartphone will actually land in the real world. Unsurprisingly, major US carriers are quick to jump on board and give us at least a season. At least one carrier goes the extra mile, or even more, to bring us what is calls the world’s farthest unboxing.

OnePlus 3T unboxed to the extreme inside a fighter jet

OnePlus 3T unboxed to the extreme inside a fighter jet

One do you do when you have a new, high-end, smartphone that’s not exactly getting purely praises by word of mouth? Kick the marketing into high gear, of course! And what could be better than having that smartphone unboxed in a death-defying stunt? Well, minus the death-defying, leaving only the stunt. That is exactly what OnePlus did when it invited YouTuber Jake Paul to Prague to unbox the OnePlus 3T in the most unlikely location: up in the air, inside a fighter jet.

PS4 Slim smiles for the camera in new unboxing video

PS4 Slim smiles for the camera in new unboxing video

Whether or not Sony wants to admit it, there sure seems to be a growing pile of evidence that the PS4 Slim does indeed exist. The latest is probably the most convincing, coming in the form of a review and an unboxing video from Let's Play Video Games' Laura Kate Dale. It's here that we see what appears to be a final version of the PS4 Slim, retail packaging and all.

Nextbit Robin: A Modest Proposal and our 3 first impressions

Nextbit Robin: A Modest Proposal and our 3 first impressions

Day 1 with the Nextbit Robin, a smartphone that puts unused apps and media in the cloud to keep the burden of storage off its user. I'm already impressed. Instead of attempting to create another unit that more of less drives toward smartphone aesthetic singularity, this device has a strong, blatantly design-conscious look. It's not for everyone. It's not even for most people. This device is not meant to do battle with Apple and/or Samsung. And it's not going to do battle with either one. Instead, this device is doing something unique.

Apple TV unboxing shows off Siri Remote

Apple TV unboxing shows off Siri Remote

Earlier this month Apple unveiled its new line of products including the revised Apple TV. We spent some hands on time with the new Apple TV and found it to be a nice update. It's about the same size as the old Apple TV with the main difference being that it’s a bit thicker and it has that new Siri remote.

This is the OnePlus 2 (unboxing and hands-on)

The second in a line of OnePlus smartphones is here, just aching to have its place in the sun alongside the top-tier devices from the world's top manufacturers. The OnePlus 2, says the company, is a "flagship killer". We'll see about that once the device is put through our review trials. For now we're having a peek at the basics. This device has just arrived at SlashGear headquarters in its final form. Final software and final hardware - and a camera we'll be battling against the top smartphone cameras in the field. Both in the dark and in the light.

Sphero SPRK edition unboxing: robot education inside-out

Sphero SPRK edition unboxing: robot education inside-out

This morning we're getting our first opportunity to take a peek at the Sphero SPRK edition up close. This device is transparent - as is its charger - aiming to show students how the robot rolls. SPRK stands for Schools, Parents, Robots, Kids, and here we're taking the machine out of the same box the public will, one step at a time. Here we witness the insides of the remote-controlled sphere for the first time - without having to tear the ball apart.
