We’ve been covering 2-in-1 convertibles and outlandish gaming laptops so often recently, we almost forgot regular notebooks can be good even without crazy features. The new ASUS ZenBook 3 Deluxe is here to remind us about that.
Newly launched products at CES have this thing that makes every gadget we own suddenly look like outdated junk. We’ve seen several of those already, and the Dell Canvas is the latest piece of high-tech hardware to do so.
Manufacturers have been trying all sorts of tricks to make televisions interesting again — from turning them into smart entertainment hubs to forcing 3D content down our throats — but to no avail. That’s about to change, however, with Sony’s first-ever foray into OLED TVs.
What newly launched smartphone has a dual-camera setup, hefty 5000mAh battery, and one of the most efficient processors out there? Sounds like a lot, but ASUS somehow crammed all that into the ZenFone 3 Zoom.
You’re going to hear a lot about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 this year; it’s the most advanced mobile chipset currently in existence, and it’ll power several flagship devices in 2017. Let’s list down why it’s so special.
Against all odds, Lenovo is joining the gaming notebook segment with two fully equipped laptops. They’re colorful, up-to-date, and relatively wallet-friendly. [Update: There’s going to be a Y920, as well!]
Another new year, another Consumer Electronic Show to cover. Although the event will be held in Las Vegas from January 5 to 8, there’ll be lots of product announcements before and after the show. Here are some of the more exciting brands to watch out for.
Samsung’s next top-shelf smartphone, the forthcoming Galaxy S8, has a lot to live up to. Following two Galaxy Note 7 recalls and the news of its discontinuation, the S8 needs to be nothing short of the best phone ever built to make up for lost sales and lost faith in the brand.
Less than 24 hours after Samsung’s announcement to end production and sales of its wildly controversial phablet, Samsung Philippines today reiterated the same sentiments and urged customers to switch off their Galaxy Note 7 — be it an original or a replacement — and exchange it for a different handset or money.
In a couple of short hours, Google’s big October event in San Francisco will start. We’re expecting a bunch of new hardware from the Mountain View company, including two high-end smartphones, an Amazon Echo rival, a WiFi router, and a media-streaming device with 4K and HDR support.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 exchange program for potentially dangerous phones is currently underway in the U.S., Europe, and the Philippines, among other countries. Early reports are encouraging for the South Korean electronics giant, with estimates that, around the world, over one million customers are now using new and safe Note 7 units.
You’ve probably heard about it a million times. You’ve heard from the news, from your family and peers, and from Samsung. And you’ve heard right: A battery defect has caused a few Galaxy Note 7 phones to explode during and after charging.
There are lots of laptops that are considered razor-thin, but there’s one that’s a little more specific: The Acer Swift 7 is considered to be smartphone-thin, having a profile that’s just below a centimeter at 9.98mm. Leanest notebook ever? Definitely.
We really have to give it to Lenovo for trying to reinvent tablets and notebooks so often. After reviewing their modular yet incredibly sturdy ThinkPad X1 Tablet, we’re now taking a look at the Yoga Book, which is something we’ve never seen before.
Every hero product needs a sidekick, and in the Sony Xperia XZ’s case, it’s the Xperia X Compact fortifying the lineup. It’s a lot like its predecessor, the Xperia Z5 Compact, but the internal package is quite different.
Spotting an Xperia has become second nature to most. A flat rear, signature circular camera lens, and pronounced bezels – that’s a Sony smartphone right there. This year’s flagship, the Xperia XZ, is not much different, yet has a lot more in store for camera lovers.
Samsung didn’t have time for yet another smartphone at IFA 2016 in Berlin, Germany, although the Korean giant did have a new smartwatch up its sleeve. This time around, the latest Gear model is more in line with conventional timepieces, in that it looks more like the genuine article than a fitness tracker.
Lenovo turned a lot of heads last June when they announced their flagship Moto Z and Moto Z Force smartphones, which are modular in a sense, but not all the way. By attaching proprietary MotoMods to the back panel, you can improve the audio, battery capacity, or add a projector to the mix. The newly announced Moto Z Play continues the legacy, and adds something the two predecessors have been missing: a 3.5mm audio jack.
After reading about the Acer Predator 21 X for the first time earlier this week, we’re sure you’re eager to see how monstrous the gaming notebook looks beside a regular-sized person. This is your chance to find out in our first look embedded above. We even try our best to lift it!
Huawei has brought its design chops to Google’s Nexus 6P, its Mate series of phablets, and, more recently, the P9 and P9 Plus. Now the company is at it again with yet another pair of premium mobiles, only this time, their price tags are low enough to dip under the flagship radar.
We saw this coming last month, and now it’s a reality: Sony has unveiled its new flagship smartphone, the 5.2-inch Xperia XZ. Along with it comes the 4.6-inch Xperia X Compact, which, you could say, is the spiritual successor to the Z Compact series.
HP has just unveiled its Pavilion Wave and Elite Slice PCs, proving that there’s still a lot of potential for progress in the desktop computer market. The two products aren’t going to shock you with incredible specs or brand new technologies, though; what makes them special is in the way they fit around your work space.
Every year at a consumer electronics trade show, when the lights shine the brightest, at least one company takes an idea and really runs with it in an attempt to smash previous records (very temporarily) and set the internet on fire (also very temporarily).
Squarish designs and poor battery life plagued early smartwatches because of technological limitations, but now, the newest models are looking more like traditional, not-as-smart watches and performance is certainly improving. ASUS is the latest company to jump on the round watchface ship with the ZenWatch 3, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.
Samsung today revealed a new smartwatch to succeed last year’s well-reviewed Gear S2. Based on Samsung’s own Tizen software and not Android Wear (it will work with Android devices, though), the Gear S3 retains its predecessor’s round, solid steel case and rotating bezel but ups the ante in terms of size, ruggedness and waterproofing, and connectivity.
Gaming laptops have become the experimental platform for manufacturers to let out all the wild ideas they’ve come up with. Most recently, ASUS unleashed what we thought was a mobile behemoth, cramming two high-end graphics cards, water cooling, and a mechanical keyboard into a massive notebook. Acer may have done something even more unthinkable, placing a 21-inch curved display in its new Predator 21 X gaming notebook.
Lenovo just unveiled a new product under the Yoga line ahead of the IFA 2016 tech show in Berlin. And it will probably draw more attention than anything on the Lenovo booth for its flat keyboard surface that — wait for it — you can write or draw on.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 launch event took place at the Manhattan Center in New York this week. There were approximately 1,500 in attendance when the Seoul-based company lifted the shroud of secrecy and gave the world a peek into the future.
