The Amazon Echo Flex is so cheap, it’s the perfect starter smart home device

I've written previously that the Amazon Echo Dot is the cheapest smart speaker from the company that you would want to buy. While I stand by that, I'm also not afraid to admit that it's quite harsh on the Echo Flex. The crucial difference is that only one of these two is good for listening...

OPPO Launches Ambassador Program for Reno8 Pro

OPPO is wrapping up their very successful Product Ambassador Program for the Find X5 series, as they make room for a new program featuring the Reno8 Pro. Over the course of the program, enthusiastic users were given the chance to win many prizes, as they shared their experiences with the phone. Different perspectives from people...

Dreame Bot D10 Plus Review: Mid-priced robot vacuum and mop with auto-empty station

The Dreametech Dreame Bot D10 Plus two-in-one robot vacuum is an efficient workhorse of a robot vacuum that also has a mopping module for hard floors. There is also an efficient auto-empty station that will empty its onboard dustbin into a larger bag that will only need to be emptied every 30 days or so. Finding...

3D Pinball for Windows gets an unofficial native Android port

You can find plenty of games in the Google Play Store, including several retro titles. Even if your favorite classic games aren't readily available there, you can opt for emulators to play them on your Android device. In order to preserve the classic titles (and relive the childhood memories), some people have further taken the...

Insta360 One RS 1-inch 360 Edition Review: Leica sensor for superior low light 360 videos

Two months ago, I reviewed the Insta360 One RS, a modular camera that could transform from an action camera to a 360 camera in seconds. Now comes an upgraded model named Insta360 One RS 1-inch 360 Edition, which as the name suggests features a superior 360 lens with a 1-inch sensor. Not just any sensor,...

LG DualUp Monitor Review: The 16:18 monitor you didn’t know you needed

Have you ever been thinking about buying a new monitor and wishing the store had one with a 16:18 aspect ratio? Of course not. No one has. But LG thought we needed one, and here we are with the new DualUp Monitor; and I'm shocked at how easy it is to call it one of...

Honor Earbuds 3 Pro Review: Amazing audio quality and a comfortable design

Honor has been making earphones for years, and I reviewed the Honor Magic Earbuds in the first half of 2020. They were a pair of distinctly average earphones and came about essentially as a rebrand of the Huawei FreeBuds 3i. The company has been making earphones since, and while I'm confused about the naming lineage,...

What is Shizuku, and what can you do with it on your Android device?

The Android Debug Bridge, or ADB for short, is a handy development tool to interface with your phone for debugging and testing. Through ADB, developers and power users can access Android's built-in Linux command line shell with greater privileges than user-installed apps. Notably, the ADB shell privilege is not equal to superuser access, hence you...

Dell XPS 15 (2022) Review: The right mix of power and portability

Dell's XPS 15 has been one of the best laptops for creators for years, and the 2022 model is no different. It blends a four and a third pound chassis with the performance of Intel's 12th-gen 45W processors and Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics, all while delighting the user with a 3.5K OLED display...

Razer Kishi v2 Review: An easy recommendation for cloud gaming and emulation on your phone

Gaming on smartphones is hard, and there's not a whole lot that you can really do about it either. Most smartphones have evolved to become computing powerhouses, but finicky touch controls make it so that your phone may not necessarily be the most comfortable to play games on. There are controllers you can get for...

Samsung Galaxy S22 Camera Walkthrough: Different camera modes, Expert RAW, and more

Samsung's Galaxy S series phones are fitted with some of the best camera systems you can find on the market. While the Galaxy S22 Ultra takes the crown for having the best -- and the most versatile -- camera system out of the three phones in the series this year, I think the vanilla Galaxy...

Apple MacBook Pro 13 (M2, 2022) Review: For a small niche group

The new 2022 13-inch MacBook Pro is in a really weird spot. Launched at this year's WWDC almost as an afterthought -- it got exactly 1 minute and 32 second of stage time (yes I timed it) -- it brings back the same design and exterior hardware as its last two predecessors, which would be...
