The borderless trend has invaded the midrange smartphone segment. Those extremely thin bezels are glorious to gaze at, but Motorola is still not on board this trend. The Moto G5S Plus relies on good looks, a sturdy build, and smooth user experience to take on other phones in its class.
Three years after Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor broke ground with how video game systems can tell stories, its sequel Middle-earth: Shadow of War builds on that foundation and more. Do these new layers elevate or encumber the experience?
2017 is the era of borderless smartphones and so far, it’s a defining feature of flagship and midrange devices. But what if a manufacturer were able to squeeze in a large bezel-less display into a US$ 100 phone? That’s what the Vkworld Mix Plus offers to the mass market.
Meizu’s newest M-series release is an entry-level smartphone designed to shoot better photos. The Meizu M6, announced just last month, is touted as a “selfie-centric” phone at a cheaper price point. It’s an improved version of the previously released M5. This update has better camera specs.
Before it was about being the slimmest, then front cameras overtook the importance of the rear shooters, and now it’s about the display. Since Xiaomi popularized the borderless design, other manufacturers followed. Of course, such high-end features will eventually come to cheaper devices just like the Huawei Nova 2i.
Samsung’s firm belief in the saying “the more, the merrier” stands true as yet another phone is launched under the J7 banner. This saying also applies to the number of cameras on their phones: The Samsung Galaxy J7+ is Samsung’s second dual-camera phone and this time, you don’t have to shell out US$ 1,000 to own it.
The NBA season is right around the corner but for those of us who can’t wait, the next best thing is already here. We got our hands on NBA 2K18 for PS4 and we’ll share with you which changes we think are hits, and which ones are misses.
Let’s admit it: We are a nostalgic bunch, hence the need for something we can hold, even in the age of digital multimedia.
The first Destiny was one of the biggest games in 2014, but with its massive following also came plenty of complaints among critics, consumers, and even from the most diehard fans. Destiny 2 aims to address each problem, and succeeds more often than it fails.
If dual cameras were the hot trend for smartphones last year, bezel-less displays are the ones keeping handsets interesting this year. And although they were limited to flagships at the start of 2017, midrange phones have finally been incorporating the feature lately — the newest of which being the Vivo V7+.
We’ve pretty much established that the Galaxy Note 8 is the best stylus-equipped smartphone in the market. The real question is: Is there more to it than that?
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was the perfect send-off to the blockbuster franchise’s hero Nathan Drake, and would’ve been the best conclusion to the series. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy tries to make the case for even more Uncharted.
ASUS has, once again, released a swarm of ZenFones with a variety of configurations. Having choices is great and all, but the question on everyone’s mind is: Which model is the best bang for one’s buck? If we had to pick one, it would likely be the ZenFone 4 Max.
When there’s talk of tech innovation, we don’t usually think of hair dryers. Dyson might just change that.
The Dyson Supersonic is today’s top-of-the-line luxury blow dryer. I say that because it costs more than any normal hair dryer would — much more. Just what would justify a steep price tag?
In a time when cameras are getting smaller and every scene becomes a digital image at a tap on a smartphone screen, are prints still relevant?

The Polaroid camera is making a comeback with the Snap Touch, and I am giddy with nostalgic excitement.
When was the last time you held an actual photo in your hand?
I grew up with physical photo albums and picture frames. These days, though, you’d be hard-pressed to find photo printouts — most pictures are stored in your camera roll or tucked away as “Memories” on your Facebook feed.
A nifty device will change that.
It was exactly a year ago when I reviewed the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S, and while it was a complete Windows system inside a slim tablet, there were three drawbacks: no bundled stylus pen, overreliance on the keyboard case, and lack of ports. The newer, upgraded Galaxy Book — yes, the naming scheme changed once again — fixes one of those issues.
Sports ignite people. We map stories to players’ careers. We label rival athletes facing off as heroes and villains. We cry when the home team loses a deciding playoff match. We rejoice when they finally win championship gold.
Pyre sets out to spark that real human passion in its fantastical basketball/visual novel combo.
