Dell Latitude 7320 Detachable review: The Surface Pro killer

One of the things I find interesting about Intel's Tiger Lake UP4 processors is that not only are they very good, but they also allow the form factor to shrink down to a certain point that was previously only enabled by an ARM chipset. The Dell Latitude 7320 Detachable is the fourth PC I've come...

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.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE Review: Doesn’t justify the “Fan Edition” label

When Samsung launched the Galaxy S20 FE last year, it said the new Fan Edition lineup was a tribute to Galaxy fans that set "a new standard of making uncompromising flagship innovations accessible to as many people as possible." During the launch event, the company also promised it would launch "Fan Editions of our flagship devices...

Mi Watch Revolve Active Review: Great hardware, still buggy software

What makes a smartwatch different from a smart band? Is it just about the form factor? Or is the smartwatch supposed to be smarter and more capable? These are some of the questions I’ve been dealing with for the past week while reviewing the new Mi Watch Revolve Active. That mouthful of a name aside,...

iMac 24-inch Review: The Apple M1 changes the game

Imagine an 11-inch tablet that's 5.9mm thick that has the power of a laptop. Imagine an all-in-one PC with a screen that's 11.5mm thick and has no external base with the internal components. Imagine an aluminum laptop that weighs 2.8 pounds and has more power than a lot of gaming PCs. Now imagine that all...

Samsung Galaxy A52 5G Review: The King of Budget 5G Phones in 2021

The Galaxy A50 series has been one of Samsung's bestsellers over the past few years. Priced in the $400-$500 range, it's the perfect middle ground between super cheap phones and expensive flagships.
