Sony Xperia ZL review: a giant phone in a surprisingly compact frame

Sony took a rather unusual path with its flagship smartphone for 2013: it designed the hardware twice. The Xperia Z is ostensibly the star of the show with its glass body and waterproofing, but it's launching alongside the Xperia ZL, an equally brawny, yet plainer sibling. On a spec sheet, there's …

The Crucial/Micron M500 Review (960GB, 480GB, 240GB, 120GB)

This is probably the most excited I've been about any SSD launch in quite a while. At CES this year, Crucial announced its M500 SSD - the world's …

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 review

The story of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 really starts with a different device — the Galaxy Note 10.1. Samsung advertised a power-user's dream device: letting you edit documents or draw with a pen, do more than one thing at a time, and even take handwritten notes like it's 1746 or something. Oh, …

The HTC One Review

It is nearly impossible to begin to review the HTC One without some context, and I’ll begin our review of the HTC One (formerly the device known as …

Nokia Lumia 820 review

Nokia's focus with Windows Phone 8 might be on its Lumia 920 handset, but the Lumia 820 might be even more appealing but for those looking at smaller and lower-cost options. It’s a promising handset that will be available in several variations on US networks, with near-identical internals but …

iPad mini review

The iPad mini has arrived — and so has our review. Just last week, Apple introduced the world to the newest member of its wildly successful tablet line, an adorable, diminutive slate with a 7.9-inch display. It even had an adorable ad to show along with it: an iPad mini joining in with a full-sized …

Apple iMac and Mac mini review (late 2012)

As soon as it was unveiled on stage in October, I started looking forward to getting the new iMac in for review. See, my main machine is a 13-inch MacBook Air, which I mostly love. But sometimes I want a bigger screen for watching movies, or more processing power when I'm dealing with photos or …

HTC Windows Phone 8S review

HTC's second Windows Phone 8 device follows the same design as its bigger brother, the 8X, with a unique look and feel that's separate to the company's Android devices. It's another big bet on Windows Phone 8 for HTC and one that the company hopes will appeal to the masses as Microsoft continues …

Microsoft Surface Pro review

I've been waiting to review the Microsoft Surface Pro for a long time. When I decided to make the switch to Windows 8, I did a pretty thorough survey of the computing landscape, and Microsoft's second Surface seemed like it might be the one for me.<p>Microsoft has proven it can build a nice-looking …

Sony Xperia Z review

Only a year after releasing the Xperia S, its first post-Ericsson phone, Sony has already reached the end of the alphabet with its flagship for 2013, the Xperia Z. The implication behind the name is that this handset is as <i>ultimate</i> as the letter Z itself, and Sony'™s design and marketing teams have …

HP Spectre XT TouchSmart review

Last September, HP introduced one of the most credible MacBook Air competitors we’d yet seen: the 13-inch Envy Spectre XT was thin, light, strong, and yet still comfortable to use, a rarity in a Windows ultrabook. Yet it also had a low-quality, low-resolution 1366 x 768 display that had no place in …

LG Optimus G Pro review

<i>Anything you can do, I can do better...</i><p>LG and Samsung are in the midst of a battle. An epic back-and-forth. A billions-of-dollars tit-for-tat. The two Korean conglomerates, part of the chaebol system that dominates commerce and politics in their home country, are immensely and constantly …

Razer Edge review

It's a seriously impressive thing, winning the same award twice – for the same product. That's what Razer managed over the last two years, hoarding accolades at CES for the Project Fiona in 2012 and again for the Edge in 2013.<p>Razer's been so lauded because it set out to do something that doesn't …

Ouya review: can an indie console take on Sony and Microsoft?

Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo may no longer be the only names that matter in gaming, but the "big three" is still very much alive in people's minds. Even as iOS and Android have gotten better games, and better hardware to run those games, capital-G Gaming remains something done with a controller …

HTC One for AT&T: the best Android phone yet?

HTC's flagship smartphone for 2013, the One, really impressed us when we reviewed the international version last month. Its stellar design, speedy performance, and absolutely incredible display overshadowed some of the complaints we had with its camera and battery performance.<p>Since then, we've been …
