88% Xiaomi Mi 10 Smartphone Review: More Megapixels

Chinese high-end. Manufacturers like to advertise their devices with big numbers, and Xiaomi is no exception here. So by just mentioning a 108-MP sensor, the camera is guaranteed to draw some attention. In our test, it finally has to prove whether more megapixels really make a better image.

Asus TUF A17 FA706IU Ryzen 7 Laptop Review: Core i9 Performance for $1100 USD

83% Asus TUF A17 FA706IU Ryzen 7 Laptop Review: Core i9 Performance for $1100 USD

Sky-high performance for a low-budget price. Asus has completely revamped its TUF series from top to bottom and the changes are significant. If you were considering the older FX705/FX505 series, skip it and consider the newer FA706/FA506 series instead.

73% 6th Gen Intel Skylake-U in 2020: Chuwi AeroBook Plus 4K Laptop Review

What's old is new again. One way to cut manufacturing costs is to use older components. So, what happens when you use a processor that's nearly five years old? For $600 to $700 USD, results aren't half bad.

Benchmarking Intel Comet Lake-S CPUs with up to 10 cores

Benchmarking Intel Comet Lake-S CPUs with up to 10 cores

10 cores need a whole lot of power! Since Intel first revealed its new Comet Lake-S processors and its new chipsets at the end of April, we were able to get our hands only on the high-end Intel Core i9-10900K and the Intel Core i5-10600K. Intel’s CPUs are still the best for gaming, but this comes at a very high cost.

Mirror, mirror... After we were able to get an impression of the Asus ZenBook Flip 15 UX563FD, we now take a look at its smaller sibling model. It has to make do with a Full HD display instead of a 4K display in our test configuration, but it convinces with a high-quality case. What the 14-inch convertible has to offer apart from the design will be revealed in our review.

M MEMTEQ Type-C Portable Monitor Z1 review - Multi-screen use on the go

Display to go. Behind the somewhat cumbersome name is a portable monitor that is considered mobile at 770 grams and can be used for both laptops and smartphones. A matte 15.6-inch Full HD IPS panel for a little more than 200 Euros (~$218) sounds tempting, but it cannot achieve everything it promises in the test.

86% 2020 Razer Blade 15 Base Model Laptop Review: The 10th Gen Intel Comet Lake-H Update

Small changes. The latest Blade 15 revision brings just minor year-over-year upgrades. Users can expect slight keyboard changes, slight port changes, some storage differences, and a few new configurable options here and there. Otherwise, overall gaming performance remains about the same as the 2019 Blade 15 series.

85% Lenovo ThinkPad E490 Office Laptop in review: The Radeon GPU is too much for the cooling solution

Still a hot machine. The ThinkPad E490 is available with an optional dedicated GPU. Similar to the predecessor, however, the cooling solution struggles with the additional heat, and even multiple BIOS updates did not change that.

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 3 3300X with 4 cores and 8 threads in review

Look out, bargain hunters! After the launch of the new Zen2 processors, it was only a matter of time before even the entry-level models would benefit from the advantages of the new CPU architecture. We took a closer look at the two small Ryzen 3 models and were impressed at what AMD had come up with.

85% Apple iPhone SE 2020 Review - Small phone with a fast-beating heart

An upgraded classic. With the second generation of the iPhone SE, Apple has visually recreated the iPhone 8. While this has resulted in a - for current standards - relatively compact smartphone with a few high-end features, the screen-to-body ratio is fairly poor. Meanwhile, the low base price is another plus for the iPhone SE 2.

More than just a tablet. Even though the iPad Pro 12.9 (2020) is cheaper than its predecessor, it comes with superior hardware. For example, Apple has equipped its tablet for professional users with a stronger SoC as well as a new 12-MP camera with a LiDAR sensor. The device is still holding on to the claim of being able to fully replace a traditional laptop.

The 10th gen Core i5-10300H is so similar to both the 9th gen Core i5-9300H and 8th gen Core i5-8300H that it's only worth upgrading if you own a laptop with the Core i5-7300HQ/i7-7700HQ or older. As a budget gaming laptop, the GF75 10SCXR is essentially identical to last year's cheaper GF75 9SC with no performance surprises despite the next-gen CPU.

Courage to do without. The Huawei P40 Lite is the most affordable smartphone in the new P40 lineup. With its 6.4-inch display, the octa-core Kirin 810 SoC, 128 GB of storage, and a 48-MP four-camera system, it competes in the fiercely contested mid-range segment. Only one thing is lacking: There is no Google Play and no other Google Services. Our test shows how well the P40 Lite fares despite this lack.

But is the light business convertible really a full-fledged EliteBook, or is it a reduced version that is primarily supposed to look good on a desk? We review the premium convertible with the bigger 4-cell battery, which increases the weight to more than 1.1 kg (~2.4 pounds).

With the ThinkPad E series, Lenovo targets both the normal office market as well as people who occasionally like to play games – at least when the ThinkPad laptop is configured with an AMD GPU. Bringing these two things together proves more difficult than Lenovo might have thought, however, as the Lenovo ThinkPad E15 struggles with its cooling system.

Sports smartwatches: Garmin fēnix 6 and Polar Vantage V in comparison

In this review, we compare the Garmin fēnix 6 with the Polar Vantage V. Both models can convince in our review but then show surprisingly large differences in their orientation and should tend to make slightly different target groups happy.

85% Asus ZenBook 15 UX534FTC in Review: Matte, powerful king of battery life

Compact and powerful. Asus has equipped the slim laptop with a four-core processor and a dedicated graphics card. The features are excellent otherwise as well: matte IPS screen, NVMe SSD, 16 GB of RAM (in dual-channel mode), backlit keyboard. On top of that, the outstanding battery life rounds off the overall package well.

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.

It doesn't get much cheaper than that. The Blackview A60 doesn't even cost 70 euros and is still a relatively large smartphone with a waterdrop notch and a decent battery capacity. But a decisive equipment feature has fallen victim to the price...

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.

Extremely cheap. With the second generation of the Tab M7, Lenovo brings a very low-priced tablet to the market, which, despite its weak hardware, cuts a very fine figure. Thanks to Android Go, there is no unnecessary bloatware, and for only 79 Euros (~$88), the tablet delivers almost everything you can expect from such a device.

A clever move. Honor smartphones originally were profitable sprouts of some Huawei models that were not much older. At least, this was the case before the subsidiary began to strengthen its own identity and move ahead, as for example when it was first to introduce a the 48-MP camera in the Honor V20. But the Nova 5T from Huawei is really an Honor 20. In this way, Huawei can still use the Google services, since the Honor 20 was introduced to the market before the deadline in the USA.

In order to avoid abandoning the market to the competitor completely, the Intel Core i9-9900K has now been updated as the 9900KS. Intel advertises a stable 5 GHz on all cores in Turbo under load. We evaluate in detail whether this is also true in practical operation, since AMD had some problems with its Ryzen 3000 series to achieve the specified clock speeds in some cases.

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.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 Smartwatch Review

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 Smartwatch Review

Digital bezel. Not only does the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 bring digital functions to the wrist, but Samsung has also digitalized the bezel in its elegant smartwatch. This brings a new spark into the operation of the smartwatch. With a heart rate sensor and its own GPS on board, the wearable is also ready for use while engaging in sports activities.

85% Eurocom Sky X4C Core i9-9900KS Laptop Review: Unlocked Desktop Processor in a Mobile Form Factor

127 W Core i9 Intel inside. The three-year old Clevo P751DM2 chassis is beginning to show its age. While the system can handle Intel's latest Core i9 CPU, it can't fully exploit the high Turbo Boost potential of the processor without running at temperatures well beyond 90 C.

Samsung Galaxy A30s

79% Samsung Galaxy A30s Smartphone Review: A breath of fresh air with a playful design

A colourful entry-level smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy A30s is comparatively affordable but features a design that should distinguish it from many of its contemporaries. While the Galaxy A30s looks the part, our tests will reveal whether it can keep up with the competition.

A Clevo alternative. When it comes to configurable high-end laptops, barebone-maker Clevo has long been the industry's top dog. Tongfang has been challenging its dominance for a while now, so we have taken the GK5CQ7Z chassis for a spin once again to see how it fares. Read on to find out how the XMG Neo 15 with its 9th generation Intel processor and RTX 20 series GPU performs in our tests.

86% Google Pixel 4 Review: no longer at the smartphone forefront

Short-winded. The Pixel 4 features almost no real updates save for a touchless gesture control feature and a 90 Hz panel. Otherwise, the device can be considered mostly a facelift. Unfortunately, it no longer features a fingerprint reader and the battery has decreased in capacity. Let's find out whether this new recipe actually works.

LG G8X ThinQ

84% LG G8X ThinQ Smartphone Review: A convertible among smartphones

Two-times a smartphone. The G8X ThinQ is a foldable smartphone with a difference. LG has opted for two distinct displays connected via a hinge, a simplistic solution to the more elaborate and expensive foldable smartphones we have seen of late. While the G8X ThinQ is an unusual concept, it still impressed us during our tests.

A strong magnitude and direction. The Vector 15 is one of the few 15.6-inch gaming laptops with GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics clocking in at under 2 kg. The portability comes at the cost of louder fans noise and a more flexible chassis design.

78% Walmart Motile M142 Laptop Review: Pretty Good for $500

Checks all the right boxes. We never expect very much from laptops retailing for less than $500, but the Walmart Motile offers a surprisingly balanced experienced. Its AMD Zen+ Ryzen 5 CPU performs as fast as any Intel 9th gen Ultrabook in a chassis that doesn't feel hastily put together.

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.
