Asus Vivobook S 14X OLED review: OLED never looked this good

The Asus Vivobook S 14X OLED is among the first on the market to have a 120Hz OLED display, which is pretty sweet. After all, OLED laptops are delightful to begin with, and Asus absolutely invests in using the technology in its screens. Adding the high refresh rate on top of that is a chef's...

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...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 7 Review: The best business convertible

There's a reason that Lenovo ThinkPad is such a powerful brand, dominating in the business market thanks to a reputation for quality and innovation. And when it comes to the ThinkPad X1 Yoga, the product is tried and true, now on its seventh generation. It's made out of aluminum, has a built-in pen garage, and...

OnePlus 10 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S22: Did OnePlus finally beat Samsung?

OnePlus has established itself as a brand capable of making great phones that are serious alternatives to mainstream flagships. The OnePlus 10 Pro earns its keep with a laundry list of top-of-the-line specs with only a handful of notable compromises. The 10 Pro's $899 price tag also makes more sense than last year's OnePlus 9...

Surface Laptop Go 2 Review: A delightful entry-level laptop

If you're looking for a super-light Surface PC that won't break the bank and still feels premium, the Surface Laptop Go 2 is the way to go. Unlike the Surface Go, its tablet sibling, the Laptop Go 2 contains a proper Core i5, and that Core i5 has been upgraded to Intel's 11th-generation SKU, which...

ZTE Axon 40 Ultra Review: Fantastic at everything, except selfies

ZTE has been working on its under-display camera tech for quite a while now, with the ZTE Axon 20 5G being one of the first commercial devices to pack one. Back then it wasn't great -- the pixel density over the camera was incredibly low and stood out like a sore thumb, and the picture...

Razer Barracuda headset review: Mixing gaming and premium wireless headphones

Choosing the best gaming headset can be a bit of a minefield. There's a frankly absurd amount of choice out there, with something to suit every budget and every need. Razer alone can probably find something to suit you, and that might just be its latest release. The Razer Barracuda is a family of three headsets,...

Vivo X80 Pro Review: The best camera on a smartphone, once again

When it comes to Chinese phone brands' reputation on an international stage, Vivo probably isn't as well known as Huawei, Xiaomi, OPPO, or OnePlus. But those of us who follow the smartphone scene closely know Vivo has been making really good phones for a couple of years now, and last fall's Vivo X70 Pro Plus...

Sony Xperia 1 IV Review: A different approach to mobile photography

Sony's smartphones have always differed from other handsets on the market, in that they never seemed to care about industry trends. This could be something as superficial as bezel sizes -- Sony has never bothered to chase the all-screen look the way other Android brands have -- to something as crucial as digital imaging philosophies....

Lenovo Yoga 9i (2022) Review: The new best consumer laptop

I review a lot of laptops, and if you've heard of it, it's probably crossed my desk. So when I say that the Lenovo Yoga 9i is now the best laptop on the market, I'm saying that from a place where I've actually tested the rest. The only caveat is that Dell hasn't announced this...

Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360 15 review: A fantastic laptop for Samsung users

If there are two things that always get my attention in the PC space, it's OLED laptops and ultralight laptops. The Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360 is both of that. And indeed, that's a big part of the reason that the Galaxy Book Pro 360 was one of my favorite laptops of 2021. For...

XGIMI Aura Smart Projector Review: Performance meets convenience

If you told me you had a 100" projector screen mounted up in your home bedroom, I'd probably think you were crazy. Most sane people would simply set up a smart TV for their comfort zone — but why not a smart projector? People tend to think of the theaters or full-fledged home cinema systems...
