Watch Sony's prototype drone do a vertical takeoff

Here's your first look at the drone Sony's developing with a Tokyo robotics firm under its collab company called Aerosense. The UAV can carry up to 22 pounds, fly continuously for two hours at a speed of 106 miles per hour and, as you can see in the video below the fold, take off and land …

EE Harrier and Harrier Mini review

EE's Kestrel was its first own-brand 4G smartphone, meant for those wanting breakneck mobile data speeds without breaking the bank. One year on, the Kestrel is coming to the end of its life, and when remaining stock is depleted, it'll disappear from the network's handset roster. The market for …

The Apple Watch as a fitness device (as written by a runner)

I was supposed to review the Apple Watch. That was the plan, but then, when Engadget had its first chance to test the device, I was on vacation. Specifically, I was in France, where I ran the Paris Marathon, my sixth 26.2-mile race in five years. As it happens, our Editor-in-Chief Michael wrote a …

Recon Jet review: expensive fitness glasses with potential to be better

Recon Jet is a sports computer for long-distance runners and cyclists that's embedded into a pair of sunglasses. Take it on a long, lung-bursting trip and you'll get your speed, cadence and calories, as well as a variety of other stats -- all presented to you on a tiny display placed just below …

Here's what our readers think of OS X Yosemite

The public beta of OS X El Capitan might be out now, but plenty of users will continue using OS X Yosemite through the fall and beyond. And at first glance that's just fine: In our own review we called Yosemite "a solid update for Mac users" that offered a "clean new design" and close integration …

Unlocked phone shootout: Meet the Huawei P8 Lite and Oppo R7

It used to be, not too long ago, that buying an unlocked smartphone online from some unfamiliar Chinese OEM was a sure-fire recipe for frustration. The thing is, the bar for no-contract phones has gotten so high within the past two years or so that you could easily ditch the common flagships down …

Meet the Galaxy Note 5: Samsung's most elegant phablet yet

In case the news hasn't already been spoiled for you, Samsung just officially revealed two new phablets, and the updated Galaxy Note 5 is easily the more fascinating of the pair. It's the sleekest, most powerful Note yet (obviously), but -- more importantly -- it's also the most elegant. In fact, …

Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge+ is a super-sized sequel that plays it safe

It's been less than six months since Samsung pulled back the curtain on the eye-catching Galaxy S6 Edge, and now it's getting a very familiar-looking sibling. Say hello to the Galaxy S6 Edge+, a super-sized sequel that powers up the original formula with a larger screen, more RAM to help its …

Windows 10 review: the best of Windows 7 and 8

The best thing about Windows 10 is that it's simply Windows, through and through. It's as if Microsoft realized that devaluing the desktop in Windows 8 was akin to sacrilege, and Windows 10 is its penance. At its core, it's a union of the best qualities of Windows 7 and Windows 8 -- the desktop …

Mini review video: our verdict on Windows 10 in 45 seconds

Didn't read all the way through our nearly 3,700-word review of Windows 10? You really should: Devindra makes some good points. That said, if you're short on time, or just have a hopelessly short attention span, we've distilled our writeup into a mini review video. As you can tell by the score …

Moto G review (2015): Motorola wins the 'best cheap phone' crown, again

Motorola is on a mission. For the last two years, it's been trying to suss out the finest blend of silicon and style it could get away with selling for just $180. And for the last two years the company has had winners on its hands -- can you say "best-selling smartphone in Motorola history"? That …

Mini review video: our verdict on the Moto G in under a minute

The Moto G gets a little better every year. Now in its third generation, Motorola's mid-range handset is still our favorite affordable smartphone, with the most recent version notching a score of 87 out of 100 in our review (that's up from 86 last year and 85 the year before that). Aside from its …

OnePlus 2 review: a worthy sequel, flaws and all

I don't envy the team at OnePlus. After shipping a smartphone that made us rethink what we could get -- nay, what we <i>deserved</i> -- for $299, it was tasked with building an even better follow-up. If this were some schlocky '80s, teen coming-of-age film, it'd be time for a montage, but here we are a …
