Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Core i5 Review: More Like a Surface Pro 6.5

88% Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Core i5 Review: More Like a Surface Pro 6.5

Iterative. The Surface Pro 7 doesn't bring enough to the table to warrant a whole digit upgrade over the Surface Pro 6. Unless if you really value the integrated USB Type-C port or Iris Plus graphics update, last year's model will suffice.

78% Motorola Moto G8 Plus smartphone review – Mobile phone with action cam

Even more camera. The Motorola Moto G8 Plus is a midrange smartphone that wants to impress with its cameras in particular. Long battery life and a bright screen are other aspects that speak for the device, but there are also weak points. You can find out in this review whether it's good enough for a purchase recommendation.

Sony Xperia 5

83% Sony Xperia 5 Smartphone Review: A handy handset despite having a 6-inch display

A smartphone with a cinema display and sub-par cameras. The Xperia 5 is not the first smartphone that Sony has released with a 21:9 display. We have already seen the Xperia 1 and Xperia 10 trying to distinguish themselves from their peers with this aspect ratio, and now Sony wants to persuade people that 21:9 is the future with the Xperia 5. Having such a tall display has proven practical in our experience, but the Xperia 5 falls short of expectations in some crucial areas, as our review will reveal.

Brave Finn. After an excellent start of the 7-series, the Nokia 7.1 provided long faces in the test, because especially its battery life could not convince. With the Nokia 7.2 everything is supposed to get better and HMD Global is adding a thick scoop of battery performance, more memory and a triple camera.

A display surprise. The Redmi Note 8 is another entry-level Xiaomi smartphone, but it's one that redefines the quality of displays we expect from sub-200-Euro (~$220) devices. The panel is bright, contrast-rich and even suitable for those who are PWM sensitive. The Redmi Note 8 is not all good news though, as our review unit will establish.

Fanless has its price. It's well known that products under the "Porsche Design" label don't necessarily offer a good price-performance ratio. As long as hardware and processing are of high quality, this factor isn't bothersome for the generous wallet. The Porsche Design Ultra One, however, has two quirks that seriously interfere with longer work sessions. Our review will show what this is all about.

The device scores with an IPS touchscreen display, 16 GB of working memory (dual-channel mode), and silent operation. This is accompanied by a good battery life and two Thunderbolt-3 slots. For the whole package, you have to put almost 2000 Euros (~$2226; $1700 in the US) on the table.

While its footprint may make it slightly too large for use on the move, it should fit the bill as a multimedia desktop replacement. It is not all good news though, as our review will reveal.

Apple Watch Series 5 Smartwatch Review: It can do more than any other smartwatch, but just not for that long

Almost perfect. Apple has made few changes to its Watch Series over the years. The original model had plenty going for it though, so that does not necessarily mean that Apple has fallen behind its competitors. On the contrary, the Apple Watch remains the best-selling smartwatch on the market, and by some distance. The Watch Series 5 is an excellent smartwatch too, but you may be taking a trip to the charger sooner than you may like.

Asus Zephyrus M GU502GU Laptop Review: $1800 for Single-Channel RAM

83% Asus Zephyrus M GU502GU Laptop Review: $1800 for Single-Channel RAM

Medium performance for a high price. The Zephyrus M GU502GU starts at the same price as the Razer Blade 15 with the same CPU, GPU, and 144 Hz display. It becomes difficult to recommend the Asus when the Razer alternative is both smaller and more rigid while offering essentially the same level of gaming performance.

Versatile. With the IdeaPad C340-15IWL, Lenovo delivers a well-equipped 15.6-inch convertible, which also offers very good battery life. The IPS touchscreen display can be operated with your fingers as well as with the Lenovo Active Pen 2, which can be purchased separately.

Gigaset GS195

71% Review Gigaset GS195 Smartphone - Mobile phone from German production

A true European. The Gigaset GS195 comes from German production and in a particularly ecological packaging to the buyer. For less than 200 Euros, it should not only impress with a stylish glass design, but also with a large rechargeable battery. In the test we look at whether this is successful.

87% Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Tablet Review: Top technology at a premium price

The tablet S-class. For Samsung's new tablet flagship, the best is just good enough: As with the first Samsung tablet, the 10.5-inch Android device is equipped with a dual camera and is run by the Snapdragon 855 high-end SoC and at least 6 GB of RAM. The Samsung S Pen is also always included.
