Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End review

Heart-pumping, visually stimulating, and a masterclass of cinematic storytelling in video games. Those are just some of the words that we’d use to describe Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.

Indeed, protagonist Nathan Drake’s last adventure on the PlayStation 4 serves as a worthy punctuation mark to the Indiana Jones-inspired series, which sold over 28 million copies worldwide and helped put Sony’s console ahead of the Xbox One in the marketplace.

ASUS ZenFone 3 preview: Everything we think we know

Taiwan’s Computex 2016 trade show will run from May 31 to June 4, and one of its key moments will be the announcement of the ASUS ZenFone 3, which we’ve discussed on more than one occasion (see here and here, for example). A lot has been said about the phone, and yet ASUS has largely kept mum about its features and specs, leaving us to speculate what’s in store for us come May 30, when it makes its first appearance.

To that end, we’ve sifted through months’ of hearsay and published a video outlining everything we think we know about ASUS’ upcoming signature smartphone line.

LG G5 Unboxing

It’s not always that you can take apart something and end up with a better product, but that’s exactly the calling card of LG’s latest flagship, the G5.

Yup, you’re looking at the Lego equivalent of a smartphone, or at least the closest thing we have to a truly modular device that can be upgraded as easily as swapping out its components. Obviously, that future hasn’t fully arrived yet, but it’s good to see the Korean manufacturer actively pursuing it.

Asus Zenfone 2 Laser 5.5 S Unboxing & Giveaway

We’re always excited to hear about sub-$200 smartphones.

After all, just because you can’t afford the shiniest new phone being talking about, it shouldn’t mean you can’t get a good smartphone to match your needs.

In this particular price range however it gets tougher to find a phone that you’ll enjoy using.

But there are gems like Asus’ Zenfone 2 Laser. The phone has been around for almost a year now and it appears the company intends on keeping it around for a while longer.
