Smartwatch Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 GPS with Snapdragon Wear 4100 Review: Dual display and a large battery ensure a better battery life

Smartwatch Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 GPS with Snapdragon Wear 4100 Review: Dual display and a large battery ensure a better battery life

The last one will be the first. With its display technology and powerful battery of an almost 600-mAh capacity, Mobvoi mainly wants to improve the weak battery life that is typical for WearOS – and it succeeds. The fact that the smartwatch uses "GPS" in its name, even though many wearables record routes at this point, is also justified: with GPS, Beidou, GLONASS, Galileo, and QZSS the TicWatch Pro 3 GPS is positioned very well.

FiiO M3 Pro hands-on: The little giant that punches above its class

Although smartphones have replaced digital audio and media players for most people nowadays, there is still a market for such specialized devices. FiiO is one of the relevant brands in the field and the M3 Pro is a sub-US$100 digital audio player that has a few tricks up its sleeve, as we are going to see in this hands-on review.

Nubia Watch Smartwatch Review: The successor of the "smartphone on the wrist" under test

Nubia Watch Smartwatch Review: The successor of the "smartphone on the wrist" under test

A matter of opinion. Not fish, not meat - that was the conclusion of some testers on the Nubia alpha, which presented Nubia as a smartphone on the wrist. The successor Nubia Watch, on the other hand, clearly carries the species in its name. Optically it stands out clearly among many current Smartwatches. But Nubia does not get enough out of advantages like GPS and heart rate sensor and the phone interface did not pass the test.

Zotac ZBOX MI642 Nano Desktop Hands-On

Tiny Comet. Zotac's ZBOX Nano Desktop gets a Comet Lake upgrade. While the new CPU brings a small bump in performance, stagnant graphics and stability issues will leave some users dissatisfied. The more powerful Tiger Lake CPUs or Ryzen APUs may better meet the needs of most consumers. However, those who want a desktop with a small footprint may find the ZBOX Nano a decent option for home and office use.

83% HP ZBook Firefly 15 G7 laptop review: Already outdated by Intel Comet Lake and Nvidia Pascal even without a successor

Intel comet kills ultrabook workstation. Different name, revised design. HP wants to make its ultrabook workstations of the ZBook Firefly series more attractive with this recipe. But as a result, the American manufacturer is slowed down by the chosen processor and graphics chip, because they're both outdated. Pity, since the ZBook Firefly 15 G7 is actually a good mobile workstation for light CAD tasks.

Vivo X50 Pro Smartphone review

84% Vivo X50 Pro Smartphone Review - Does the "revolutionary" gimbal camera make a difference?

For trembling hands. The Vivo X50 Pro's highlight and unique selling point is its gimbal camera system that is supposed to stabilize video recordings much better than a traditional OIS. Find out whether the gimbal-like camera in Vivo's latest smartphone offers a real benefit or whether it is nothing but marketing in our review.

Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro review: Optimized design and improved software, but hardly any hardware changes.

Noble, helpful, and good. In terms of aesthetics, Huawei raises the bar even higher. With titanium and ceramics, the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro also distances itself from its subsidiary Honor's smartwatch, the Honor. Both have increased functionality compared to their predecessors, and they have both had "Pro" added to their names. That being said, there does not seem to be any new hardware. Is Huawei saving something for a real version jump?

Ampere's Big Kahuna. NVIDIA announced the Ampere lineup earlier this month and one card that prominently stood out was the GeForce RTX 3090.

In this review, we subject the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Trinity AiB card to our battery of benchmarks to see what the hype is all about. Right off the bat, the RTX 3090 comes across as an extremely capable card with no equal. But whom is this card really aimed at? Read on to find out.

Light gaming powerhouse. Thanks to its powerful hardware, the soberly designed Schenker Key 15 brings all the latest computer games smoothly onto the matte 15.6-inch screen (Full HD, IPS, 144 Hz). The device can be individually customized to your own needs. In addition, the BIOS enables the undervolting of the CPU and iGPU.

Two becomes three. After our extensive test of the Fire HD 8 (2020), we are now taking a look at the Fire HD 8 Plus (2020) to find out whether 3 GB of working memory is actually much better than 2 GB. But the real value is added by the QI compatibility, which again increases the price-performance ratio significantly.

Improvement. Mobvoi improves upon the successor of the TicWatch C2 (without Plus) by adding more memory and by providing an additional sports wristband in the box. Despite the improvements, one essential point has not been changed by the Chinese manufacturer: The smartwatch still lacks a light sensor for the best possible brightness outdoors and a power-saving setting for indoors.

83% Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite Smartphone Review – Price-performance Hit

Understated. Since the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite is almost as powerful and equipped with nearly the same features as its high-end sibling Mi Note 10, the "Lite" moniker is more confusing than it is informative. Xiaomi has only touched the camera module, which still offers a respectable resolution at 64 MP instead of 108 MP. However, the Mi Note 10 Lite is also significantly cheaper - in this regard, the "Lite" addendum fits.

80% Samsung Galaxy M31 Smartphone Review – Average with some highlights

The "M" in mid-range. While the Samsung Galaxy M31 is not available everywhere, it is an interesting mid-range alternative with its huge battery and four-camera system. However, since you have to live with a small amount of storage, is the smartphone still worth it?

Lenovo ThinkPad T15 Gen 1 Laptop Review: Foiled by lack of AMD option

87% Lenovo ThinkPad T15 Gen 1 Laptop Review: Foiled by lack of AMD option

Offside. This year's T-series ThinkPads have only received minor updates. Nevertheless, the smaller 14-inch models have improved quite a bit in regard to performance thanks to AMD Ryzen 4000. This cannot be said about the larger ThinkPad T15 Gen 1 though as it lacks the Renoir option entirely and has to make do with Intel's Comet Lake. Our extensive review revealed that this can be a major show-stopper for the large T-series ThinkPad.

89% Dell Latitude 9510 2-in-1 Review: A 5G 15-inch Convertible That Isn't Huge Or Unwieldy

For the moving office. 15.6-inch screen sizes have traditionally not translated so well into convertible form factors due to the sheer size and weight involved. The Latitude 9510 2-in-1 mostly circumvents this by narrowing the bezels even further and reducing the screen size to 15.0 inches instead.

The tested model, G732LXS, can show off with Nvidia's currently strongest notebook GPU. However, Asus has opted for the weakest TGP version of the RTX 2080 Super.

Low performance-per-dollar. Laptops running on GeForce RTX 2060 graphics these days are beginning to retail for about $1000 to $1200 USD, but Asus' ROG Strix G15 G512LI comes with the slower GTX 1650 Ti for almost the same price. Where is all that money going towards?

The smartphone will likely appeal to photography enthusiasts in particular, since they receive an improved camera setup with 100x digital zoom on top of the P40 Pro's camera features, which are already excellent.

New name but not much new otherwise. ThinkPad T400, T410, T420, T490. Lenovo's ThinkPad T series has followed the same naming scheme for more than a decade. That changes with the Lenovo ThinkPad T14, the latest model in the mainstream ThinkPad series for enterprise customers. But apart from the new name and a small CPU update, which provides a doubtful usefulness, there's not much new.

Fast display for a fast laptop. It's the first 17.3-inch gaming laptop to offer refresh rate options greater than 240 Hz. Unless if you're a super enthusiast, however, it's gonna be hard to tell the difference between 300 Hz and last year's 240 Hz panel.

81% Acer Nitro 5 AN517-52 in review: Largely well-rounded gaming laptop offers decent battery life

Light gaming laptop. Acer's 17.3-inch gaming laptop runs all the latest computer games smoothly on the matte 120 Hz IPS display. The configuration is pleasing: A hexa-core Comet Lake processor, a GeForce RTX 2060 GPU, a 1 TB NVMe SSD and 16 GB of RAM (dual-channel) are on board.

realme 6 Pro

80% realme 6 Pro smartphone review: Swank around with big numbers

Dual selfie cam. For only 350 Euros (~$394), the realme 6 Pro has a lot to offer on its datasheet. A 90 Hz display, a quad-cam system on the back plus a dual-selfie cam and a decent amount of memory. Our test report shows what the manufacturer ultimately gets out of the installed hardware.

84% Going all in on AMD: Dell G5 15 Special Edition Radeon RX 5600M Laptop Review

The AMD SmartShift edge. It's not the quietest or best-looking gaming laptop out there, but $860 USD for GeForce RTX 2060-level graphics and Core i7-like performance is hard to argue with. The value of the all-AMD G5 15 Special Edition is impressive.

Débutants en français. With the View 4 Lite, Wiko polishes up the entry-level model of its mid-range series. While many specifications are rather class-typical, especially the triple camera and the strong battery stand out from the crowd.

Mobility vs. compatibility. Samsung's Galaxy Book S is an extremely lightweight mobile companion, which is powered by an ARM processor. The latter offers advantages like low power consumption and integrated LTE connectivity, but you cannot use 64-bit apps in return.

83% Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro Smartphone Review: Plenty of features for a cheap price

Repeat offender. Xiaomi tries to rattle the competition with cheap and well-equipped mid-range smartphones. With the Redmi Note 9 Pro, Xiaomi has thrown another wrench into the gears of established price points. For an MSRP of 250 Euros (~$282), the 6.67-inch smartphone comes with a 64-MP quad-camera and a massive battery. Our review will show whether a purchase is worthwhile.

Moto 360 Gen 3 Review: Great smartwatch with a known shortcoming

Moto 360 Gen 3 Review: Great smartwatch with a known shortcoming

Late bloomer. In regard to the shortcoming, we are not talking about the "flat tire" issue here, the conspicuous bezel at the bottom of the previous-generation smartwatch. In 2014, the Moto 360 was the first watch that used Google's Android Wear smartwatch operating system, now called WearOS. As is well known, this still has one weakness: short battery life. Almost five years after the single known update in 2015, the hardware has also now received several improvements.

Microsoft Surface Book 3 15 Convertible Review: Still great, but is it better than its predecessor?

88% Microsoft Surface Book 3 15 Convertible Review: Still great, but is it better than its predecessor?

Battle of generations. We are pushing the almost unrivaled 15-inch convertible Surface Book 3 through our various test scenarios. Both the tablet hardware (i7 Ice Lake, G7 graphics) and the convertible hardware (GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q) look even more impressive compared to the predecessor (i7 Kaby Lake refresh, GTX 1060). But is the current model actually more powerful and is the difference noticeable enough to warrant an upgrade? These are questions we will attempt to answer in our review.

Some of RAVPower’s latest USB chargers are those of the gallium nitride (GaN) variety. This state-of-the art charging material is linked to potentially improved efficiency at lower temperatures. But how do they hold up against the contents of an everyday tech-lover’s household?

84% Nubia RedMagic 5G smartphone review - Strong as a gaming phone, weaknesses in everyday life

5G gaming powerhouse at a bargain price. The Nubia RedMagic 5G offers very good technical specifications for less than 600 Euros (~$676). In everyday use, however, noticeable compromises have to be made with the gaming mobile phone, so that a RedMagic 5G is not the right companion for everyone.

86% HP EliteBook 735 G6 laptop review: Despite AMD Picasso, not necessarily a bad choice

The last 735. Shortly before the market launch of the new HP EliteBooks, we review the HP EliteBook 735 G6, an HP laptop with last year's AMD "Picasso" CPUs. Can the HP EliteBook 735 still convince some business customers shortly before its replacement? After all, in contrast to the new HP EliteBook 835 G7, it still has an RJ45 Ethernet port and the old side-docking port.

However, the 10.4-inch tablet only costs half of the flagship and almost looks identical, but there are some internal changes. We review the Lite version of the tablet.
