Nintendo’s palm-sized throwback consoles are incredibly hard to come by right now, but thanks to some crafty digging — and lots of impatience — both are in our hands for a full unboxing video with gameplay footage.
As soon as you read the name, you’d automatically think the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S is one those sleek Android tablets you’ve seen in the news. That’s only half right, because this Galaxy is a full-fledged Windows 10 convertible through and through.
Another year, another iPhone release. This year, as has been the case the past two years, we’re getting two models: the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
This is it: the final entry in our supersized smartphone series. After covering large handsets that specialize in selfies, look like a premium flagship, and load up on the specs sheet, we’re now looking at a phone prioritizing an ultra size above all else. Indeed, the 6.8-inch ASUS ZenFone 3 Ultra will astound you with its absurd proportions and premium packaging.
When Xiaomi decided to go big with their next smartphone, they weren’t kidding. The Mi Max overshadows most handsets in terms of size, pushing 6.44 inches of display on a full-metal body. It’s by far the China-based manufacturer’s largest phone since starting out, and it has GadgetMatch’s full attention right now.
Last week, we spent a generous amount of time on the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro. It got our unboxing and hands-on treatment as seen above, plus an in-depth look into how well the phone works as a daily driver. With all the exposure we’ve given this phablet, why would we feature it again here? The answer is quite simple, and it involves more of its kind.
How big is too big, really? After seeing phablets as large as 6.8 inches in screen size, anything around 5.5 inches is beginning to feel normal. We’re now taking a look at the Xperia XA Ultra, which is Sony’s largest midranger this year, sitting in what we feel is a comfortable 6 inches.
As many of you know, we’re only a few short weeks away from seeing ASUS’ signature smartphone series hit the streets in many parts of the world.
As of this month, it’s reportedly already available in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. Next up are Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Philippines in August. A ZenFone 3 launch event is expected to take place in India sometime in September. Shipments could be headed to Europe, Japan, and the United States later in the year.
There’s something about the OnePlus 3’s packaging that makes unboxing it an experience.
From its elegant yet understated red-white color scheme and the layers upon layers of things to unpack, to everything in the box that is well thought-out, keeping in with the company’s tagline, “Never settle.”
Like them or not, 360-degree photos and videos — those that allow you to look up, down, left, and right — could be the future of social media, and Samsung is well-positioned to take advantage of this development following the release of the Gear 360 camera.
The Korean phone maker says it wants to make immersive experiences accessible to all, and sees the product as an important step forward in this respect.
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.
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.
The new 9.7-inch iPad Pro is, in all fronts, the most impressive iPad ever built. It’s got a new A9X processor that Apple says is more powerful than most PCs, the camera of the iPhone 6S, which apart from offering better autofocus and low-light performance, can also shoot 4K video, and a new anti-reflective display with TrueTone technology that adapts color temperature based on its surroundings.
Size matters, but it’s not everything.
Love it or hate it, the iPhone SE is arguably a class of its own. It may look old but it doesn’t perform like one. It’s something not even the Android world can offer – where small nowadays, most often than not, means sluggish, second-rate, and a 2-4 year-old OS built into a cheap plastic body.
38 days of standby time and the ability to power another smartphone — the monster battery of the Asus Zenfone Max hasn’t been a secret for a while now.
The Taiwanese company itself teased the phone several times last year, first at a press event in India in August, and then later at the IFA Consumer tech show in Berlin last September.
We saw it again at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas last January, shortly before it began rolling out around the globe, and finally, last week it arrived at the GadgetMatch lab.
If you’re in the market for a phablet that takes amazing selfies, you might want to consider the Xperia C5 Ultra.
The 6-inch Xperia C5 Ultra sports two 13 megapixel cameras. One for its main camera, and yes, another for its front facing selfie camera. This is our unboxing.
Hold, tilt, stand, or hang. Yep, you can do all of that and more on the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2. In this video we unbox the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows, a 10-inch convertible tablet/notebook computer. The tablet runs on an Intel processor, has Dolby speakers, and promises 15 hours of battery life. It also comes with a free Office 365 subscription.
The LG G4 is a 5.5-inch smartphone with one of the best cameras of 2015. LG’s flagship shoots 16 megapixel images, has an f/1.8 lens, optical image stabilization, laser autofocus, and a dedicated color spectrum sensor. The phone also sports a new genuine leather back that’s removable, allowing users to swap batteries and memory cards. In this video we unbox the LG G4 and take a look at some of its features.
Right before it starts shipping globally, we unbox Samsung’s latest mid-range interchangeable mirrorless camera the NX500. If you’re in the market for a compact digital camera that can shoot 4K this one begs to be considered. It’s pretty impressive in both paper and practice. Watch the rest of the video to find out if it’s worth its $800 price tag.
The Moto 360 is the first round smartwatch running Android Wear and probably the best in the market today. Its popularity stems from its being one of the first smart watches to really look like a classic timepiece. In this video I unbox the device and give you my initial impressions.
