AUKEY Omnia 65W Charger Review – For all your Type-C charging needs

Since COVID-19 took over our lives, many of us have become more reliant than ever on PCs and smartphones to stay connected. When you're at home, there isn't much of a need to run to a charger, but I'm sure some of you have a lot of devices to charge. Every device typically comes with...

AMX XP60 PD Charger Review – The only charging brick you need in your bag

By now, most of us have accumulated a fair few gadgets and accessories that need charging at least once every few days. If you share a living space with other people, then you have also likely run into the same problems that I have—there just aren't enough charging sockets at home for everyone. What follows...

Selpic P1 – A portable handheld printer with limited uses

Have you ever wanted a portable printer? I'll be honest, I don't think the thought ever really crossed my mind before. What would I use a portable printer for? Turns out there's actually quite a lot of uses for a portable handheld printer, which I realized after I received the Selpic P1 for review earlier...

POCO M2 Pro Review – An Upgraded Redmi Note 9 Pro

Xiaomi's spin-off smartphone brand POCO recently expanded its portfolio with a new entry in India earlier this month. Unlike previous POCO smartphones that targeted the affordable flagship and mid-range spaces, the POCO M2 Pro is targeting the budget segment this time around. Not that there aren’t already enough contenders swarming the budget space, thus adding...

Hands-on with the OnePlus Nord: The true OnePlus X successor

OnePlus is a smartphone brand that's known for pushing the envelope when it comes to performance. Every year, the company has launched new flagship smartphones with the latest Snapdragon 800 series processor, massive amounts of RAM, and new optimizations in its OxygenOS software. With every year bringing new hardware advancements, OnePlus smartphones have become progressively...

TicWatch C2+ Review: New in Name, Old in Spirit

The Android smartphone ecosystem is full of household names like Samsung, LG, Motorola, and Google. Wear OS smartwatches, however, don’t have the same brand recognition. Sure, there are well-known brands like Fossil pumping out smartwatches, but the heavy hitters in tech are mostly absent (or in the case of Samsung, doing their own thing). Mobvoi...

Vivo X50 Pro Camera Review: The Gimbal doesn’t make up for the processing

The X-series of smartphones has generally been Vivo's camera-focused lineup. While still photography has generally been the primary focus for the X-series, Vivo has decided this time to focus on video stabilization as the key selling point of the X50 Pro. Not only that, but the Vivo X50 series represents the first time that Vivo...

TicPods ANC Review: Hard to Say “No” at This Price

Truly wireless earbuds have been a popular segment in the smartphone accessories market for a while now. More recently, though, we’ve seen a rise in earbuds with active noise cancellation. Mobvoi is no stranger to the wireless earbuds market so it wasn't a surprise when it announced the TicPods ANC earlier this summer. I’ve been...

RAVPower 65W PD GaN Charger Review – One USB-C Port, One USB-A port means even greater versatility

If you're anything like me, you probably carry a number of different chargers in your bag at any given time. I talked about that a little bit when I reviewed the RAVPower 61W PD GaN plug and mentioned how it was able to reduce the number of plugs I carried in my bag. Now the...

Nintendo 3DS emulation: Official Citra for Android performance testing on the Snapdragon 865, 855, and 845

Citra, the most popular Nintendo 3DS emulator, was officially released for Android onto the Google Play Store last week, and its performance has been at the forefront of the conversation. I'm sure anybody who saw its release wondered whether they could play their favorite Nintendo 3DS games on their Android smartphone or tablet, so I've...

MIUI 12 Hands-on: 12 interesting new features added in Xiaomi’s Android OS

Xiaomi's custom Android skin, MIUI, may not even remotely look or function like stock Android, but that's what makes it one of the most popular third-party skins out there. MIUI is full of useful features, which are sometimes much better than their stock Android counterparts. Xiaomi also adds exciting features that often inspire Google to...

AUKEY PB-Y32 and PB-Y24 Power Bank Review – Portable Power for Big to Small

It feels a little weird to be reviewing power banks at a time when more people are staying home than ever. These are accessories that mainly exist for those times when you're out and about, not near a power outlet. But that's not the only time a power bank can be useful. I've been using...
