Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Review: An i7 Upgrade with Extra GPU Performance

88% Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Review: An i7 Upgrade with Extra GPU Performance

Graphics boost. The Surface Pro 7 features the best of what Microsoft has to offer. However, the Core i7 CPU might not be worth its price premium under all circumstances. In this particular case more CPU power also means more GPU power.

Review: Corsair K70 MK.2 Rapidfire RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard — A US$170 gamer's delight

Review: Corsair K70 MK.2 Rapidfire RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard — A US$170 gamer's delight

Every black key has an RGB lining. The Corsair K70 MK.2 Rapidfire RGB uses Cherry MX Speed (Silver) switches to allow fast responses and low reaction times for competitive gameplay. The K70 MK.2 Rapidfire ticks all the required boxes for an easy recommend, but at US$170 it is not cheap and does require some time to get used to. In this review, we take a look at what features make the Corsair K70 MK.2 Rapidfire RGB stand out from the competition and see if it merits a consideration as your next gaming keyboard.

83% Schenker XMG Pro 15 (Clevo PB51RF-G) Laptop Review: Fun and games

The wolf in sheep's clothing. The XMG Pro 15 might not look particularly exciting at first glance, but it offers a lot of power. Schenker Technologies has combined a six-core processor with a GeForce RTX 2070 that ensures very smooth refresh rates even when playing modern games. Find out about the 15-inch laptop's other strengths and weaknesses in our detailed review.

84% MSI Prestige 14 A10SC-009 laptop review: Comet Lake for content creators

Large keyboard. The MSI Prestige 14 is a small powerhouse with a design and equipment that are convincing. We also like the keyboard with its normal-sized arrow keys very much. Our detailed review clarifies how the 14-inch laptop performs for creatives.

Acer ConceptD 5 CN515-51 laptop review: Kaby Lake G lightweight struggles with cost cutting

83% Acer ConceptD 5 CN515-51 laptop review: Kaby Lake G lightweight struggles with cost cutting

White featherweight. Acer leaves known paths with its ConceptD 5 CN515-51 to differentiate itself from the competition, with especially lightweight materials, Kaby Lake G with an integrated AMD GPU and a 4K UHD screen that covers a wider color gamut. At the same time, the Acer ConceptD CN515-51 is also cheaper than other multimedia laptops with a 15.6 inch screen. Unfortunately, the necessary cost cuts are showing up quite fast in this comprehensive review.

Xiaomi Redmi K30 5G

82% Xiaomi Redmi K30 5G Smartphone Review: A 5G smartphone with a 120 Hz screen at a bargain price

Buttery smooth. The Redmi K30, sold as the POCO X2 in India, relies on high-end features like 5G connectivity, a 120 Hz panel and the new Sony IMX686 image sensor. It starts at around 250 Euros (~$270) though, undercutting even a significant portion of most current mid-range smartphones. There are downsides though, as our review will discuss.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme 2019 Laptop Review: The second generation of Lenovo's premier multimedia laptop has gotten worse

87% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme 2019 Laptop Review: The second generation of Lenovo's premier multimedia laptop has gotten worse

Everything the same? New CPUs, a faster GPU and a greater choice of displays, that is the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2 in a nutshell. Lenovo has only slightly modified the second-generation model, with the chassis remaining unchanged for this year's model. We have put the device through its paces, specifically the one with a matte 4K panel, which has a massive impact on battery life.

Samsung Galaxy A71 Smartphone Review: An XXL display and quad cameras

82% Samsung Galaxy A71 Smartphone Review: An XXL display and quad cameras

A big presence. A 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display, an octa-core Snapdragon 730 SoC and quad rear-facing cameras with a 64 MP main shooter all make the Galaxy A71 sound good on paper. Samsung's new mid-range smartphone packs plenty of other features into its large case too, but our tests will show whether it is enough to trouble the established order.

74% Lenovo Ideapad Slim 1-14AST-05 Review: Chromebook Competitor Brings MS Office 365

Slow. Lenovo's 14-inch notebook is supposed to make life difficult for Chromebooks. The device scores with a successful keyboard and a one-year MS Office 365 personal license. Computing power and memory capacity are not convincing. Just under 280 EUR are due for the Ideapad.

79% Acer Aspire 5 A514 Laptop Review: Not Intel Comet Lake at its Best

Underperformer. It may be equipped with Intel's latest 10th gen processor, but almost everything else about the laptop feels rather dated. The Aspire 5 is heavier and larger than many other 14-inch alternatives without offering any notable advantages.

81% Asus ZenBook 14 UM431DA laptop review: Also makes a good impression with Ryzen

Zen-tastic. The Asus ZenBook 14 also makes a good impression with AMD's stronger Ryzen 7 but can't reach its full performance potential despite the fans turning up. With its flat design, the 14-inch laptop stays handy as usual and small features such as the integrated number pad are fun. Our review shows what else is found in the ZenBook 14.

Acer Extensa 15 EX215-51 in review: Work horse with a disappointing display

77% Acer Extensa 15 EX215-51 in review: Work horse with a disappointing display

Not well-rounded. Strengths of the Extensa 15 include the Core i5 processor, NVMe SSD, low noise level and the moderate surface temperatures. The system's biggest weakness is the display. At a price of 650 to 700 Euros (~$705 to ~$759), the device is not exactly a bargain, either.

Way overpriced at $1000. The Pavilion series is supposed to be HP's entry-level lineup of affordable laptops. This particular configuration, however, is egregiously bad because its high asking price does not reflect the low-end 768p touchscreen.

Compact gamer. The all-AMD team in the Alpha 15 runs all current games smoothly onto the device's matte, FHD, IPS, 144 Hz and FreeSync compatible 15.6-inch screen. However, its comparatively high power requirements take their toll.

Otherwise, there is not much change, and we still get the annoying fan. At least the price is a bit lower.

Is the expensive Core i9 worth it? The MacBook Pro 15 2019 is also available with the Intel Core i9-9980HK. However, the cooling system is already at its limits with the smaller processors, so the upgrade is hardly worth it. The GPU upgrade to the Radeon Pro Vega 20 from AMD on the other hand makes more sense.

However, other than a few sensors, it also lacks a GPS. As a result, the accuracy of the outdoor workout data depends on the connected smartphone, which can lead to problems, as our review will show.

A good idea? Although the IdeaPad name is commonly associated with inexpensive entry-level to mid-range offerings, the IdeaPad S740 is easily the most luxurious and powerful in its family. The big catch is that it'll cost you almost as much as the more well-known Dell XPS 15 or HP Spectre x360 15.

Robust and long-lasting. Smartphones from Blackview can be quite delicate. However, when it comes to its rugged smartphones, the manufacturer pulls out all the stops. The thick case not only looks mighty solid, but it also houses usable hardware.

One of the best smartphone cameras? The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro not only offers more memory than the Mi Note 10, but also provides an extra lens for the main cam. What sounds like a minimal upgrade is intended to provide brighter and better camera images. We'll see if that works in the test.

A lot of performance for little money. Based on the realme 5 Pro, the XT makes a decent leap forward, especially in terms of camera and storage configuration. The price remains low at less than 300 Euros (~$334), and the software is also quite respectable. The only obstacle is aggressive energy-saving management.

Additionally, the Chinese company has stuffed all the cutting-edge technology into this smartphone, or at least that which it can get hold of, anyway.

Half-baked. Dell's 14-inch laptop shines with decent or even good battery life, an NVMe SSD and a powerful Ice Lake Core i7 processor. The dedicated GeForce MX230 graphics chip is only able to access its performance potential for a short amount of time due to thermal constraints. Thus, it is not really suitable for gaming.

Low-cost office. Lenovo's 15.6-incher scores with its fast SSD, quiet fan and low temperatures. Its display and battery life are weak points, in our opinion. The laptop will not burn much of a hole in your pocket at around 300 Euros (~$334), though.

Performance-degrading transformation.

79% HP Envy 17-ce1002ng Laptop Review: A slim 17-inch machine with mixed performance

A Comet Lake laptop with Whiskey Lake performance. The new HP Envy 17 is big, slim and features a powerful combination of dedicated graphics and a Comet Lake-U processor. 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.

Garmin Fenix 6X Pro Solar Smartwatch Review – sport watch and offline satnav in one

At the touch of a button. The Fenix 6 Pro has a lot going for it. With offline maps and professional analysis features it focuses on preparation and follow-up of outdoor activities. You don't need to be a professional athlete in order to benefit from this sports watch. However, you do need to know how to use it, which is not as simple as it sounds given the huge amount of features and lack of a touchscreen.

Beefed up. Asus has made some significant improvements to the ROG phone, which first appeared on the scene in 2018: Instead of 90 Hz, we now have 120, instead of 8 GB of RAM, there is now 12, and there is, of course, a brand-new SoC on board. We had a chance to play a few games on it, and when it came time to give it back, we did so rather reluctantly. However, if you plan on using it for anything other than gaming such as making phone calls, surfing the web, emailing etc., then its weight of 240 g might prove to be not very easy to overlook.

70% Chuwi UBook Pro Tablet Review: The Microsoft Surface Pro Clone

The Clone Wars. The UBook Pro offers high-end looks with low-end performance for a mid-range price. If you can get past the slow Core m3 processor, then you'll find the super-bright 12.3-inch display and three USB ports quite useful when compared to the dimmer and pricier Surface Pro.

79% Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Smartphone Review: A display dream for the price-conscious buyer

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.

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.

86% Razer Blade Stealth i7-1065G7 Iris Plus Laptop Review: The Cheaper GeForce MX150 is Faster

Ice to meet you. Razer has jumped in on the 10 nm Ice Lake bandwagon to exploit the new power-efficient Intel Iris Plus GPU. While the resulting performance is where we expect it to be, the $1500 starting price makes this a tough buy when the less expensive Blade Stealth GeForce MX150 version is the better gaming machine.

Huami Amazfit GTS Smartwatch Review: A high-quality copy

Well copied. Smartwatches are becoming more popular, with OEMs now bringing cheaper models to market too. Apple remains a big player in the sector with its Watch, so it should come as no surprise to see other manufacturers basing their attempts on its design. The Huami Amazfit GTS bears an uncanny resemblance to the Apple Watch while costing a lot less. Its price alone should be reason enough to check out what this cheap smartwatch has to offer.

Lenovo ThinkPad T495s Review: The AMD business laptop is good, but the fan is annoying

88% Lenovo ThinkPad T495s Review: The AMD business laptop is good, but the fan is annoying

More affordable is better? The ThinkPad T495s with the Ryzen 7 Pro 3700U is a serious alternative to the Intel-based T490s. The price in particular makes the device very interesting, since there are not many compromises compared to the Intel model.

84% No RTX? No Problem — Razer Blade 15 GTX 1660 Ti Base Model Laptop Review

Faster than any other Blade 15 GTX laptop. The GTX 1660 Ti is only marginally slower than the RTX 2060 in raw GPU horsepower while retailing for hundreds less and it manages to outperform the fastest Blade 15 Pascal configuration. Some hidden drawbacks like the slightly less accurate display and slower CPU performance detract only little from the overall experience.

Business High End. Dell's 14-inch business laptop boasts a long battery life, an excellent keyboard and a fast NVMe SSD. The matte IPS display, however, could have a greater maximum brightness. In addition, the fan emits a high-pitched whistling noise.

The AMD ThinkPad is slowed down in terms of equipment. The ThinkPad E495 offers more power than the Intel equivalent with its AMD Ryzen SoC, but the low-priced laptop is unnecessarily slowed down by the manufacturer in terms of equipment.

Discrete gamer. Thanks to the Core i5-9300H processor and the GeForce GTX-1650 graphics core, the IdeaPad is able to bring all the current computer games smoothly to the matte 17.3-inch display (FHD, IPS). They are accompanied by a NVMe SSD, 16 GB of working memory, and a good battery life. Unfortunately, the working memory is only able to run in single-channel mode.

More pixels and less battery life. Like the ThinkPad X1 Extreme before it, the 14-inch ThinkPad T490 also gets a higher resolution WQHD panel with 100% AdobeRGB color-space coverage. The excellent image quality is countered by a reflective display surface and increased power consumption.
