OnePlus Nord 2 First Impressions: Does the Dimensity gamble pay off?

OnePlus and Qualcomm have had a long and fruitful relationship. Barring the hot Snapdragon 810 on the OnePlus 2, all OnePlus smartphones have paired fantastically with a Snapdragon SoC.

HP Elite Dragonfly Max Review: A phenomenal business convertible

One of my favorite convertible laptops is the HP Elite Dragonfly. Naturally, when the company offered to send out the Dragonfly Max for review, I jumped at it.
