Xiaomi Poco M3 Smartphone Review: The 150-Euro smartphone

78% Xiaomi Poco M3 Smartphone Review: The 150-Euro smartphone

A good deal for a low budget. A smartphone for 150 Euros (~$181), can this work? In the case of the Xiaomi Poco M3, it works quite well. For this amount, you get a 6.53-inch Android 10 smartphone with an IPS display, a triple-camera setup, Snapdragon 662, and stereo sound. As a special bonus, you also get a huge 6000-mAh battery. The purchase price even includes a protective case and screen protector.

69% Cubot King Kong CS smartphone Review - waterproof phone for under 100 euros

3G? Oh dear, oh dear! Cubot wants to prove that outdoor smartphones can be even cheaper and launches the King Kong CS, a phone for less than 80 Euros (~$80) that barely has any memory, an outdated SoC without 4G capability, and a weak camera. But it is water- and dust-proof according to IP68...

Modern retro. Gigaset's GS4 is another smartphone manufactured in Germany that is positioned in the mid-range but still features wireless charging.

Sure Non View. Remote work, home office, and the like are probably the buzzwords of the year. Hardware for professionals, in particular, has to adapt to the new work conditions, and ultra-thin workstations like the ZBook Firefly 14 come in handy here. But do these mobile powerhouses really offer enough performance for professional users?

Good Midranger. The Vivo Y70 starts as an inexpensive mid-range smartphone under 300 Euros (~$300) and offers an appealing design, an AMOLED screen, and a triple camera. Especially the quite fast Qualcomm SoC and the long update support can be the deciding factors for buying the device, but we also discovered some minor issues in detail.

Well-known laptop with a new screen. We are already familiar with the Lenovo ThinkPad P15s Gen 1 even though this is the first time we have it in our hands.

Full performance at the press of a button? The ThinkBook does a passable job. Lenovo's ThinkBook 13s disappointed with strong performance drops at first, but it recovered thanks to Performance Mode. Still: AMD's Ryzen 4 remains unmatched. The true strength of the 13-incher lies in the display, while maintenance has been toned down.

Hot CAD compact class. Lenovo's ThinkPad P14s Gen 1 borrows its design from the T-model ThinkPad T14 and includes an Nvidia Quadro GPU as a unique selling point. For the majority of users, this will probably only bring minor advantages, also because its performance is limited per se. However, the ThinkPad P14s can be a good choice for one or two CAD applications on the go.

Poco M3 hands-on: One day with the most affordable Poco so far

Although a full-on review will soon go live, as I purchased the Poco M3 as a gift for my parents (they'll decide who gets to keep it), I couldn't resist the urge to take it for a one-day ride. Although not perfect, when we also take the price into account, we can conclude that this handset is a masterpiece.

Dell G5 15 5500 Laptop Review: Aspirational mid-ranger let down by a sub-par display

Pricey despite compromises. Dell's new G5 15 5500 variant aims to appeal to the mid-range gamer. With a Core i5-10300H, a GTX 1650 Ti, and a 120 Hz display, the G5 15 5500 gets the basics right. However, for the asking price of ₹87,990 (US$1,195), the G5 15 5500 cuts corners, especially with the display. Can the Dell G5 15 5500 make up for these deficits on the performance front? Let's find out.

HTC Vive Cosmos Elite Detailed Hands-On Review: Elite of VR headsets, but still not problem free

VR is still at its beginnings. The HTC Vive Cosmos Elite is practically the VR flagship of the manufacturer. At this point, you can purchase it for slightly less than 950 Euros (~$1147; $899 in the US). Just like the first Vive, it uses external Lighthouse tracking, which works significantly more accurately than the inside-out headsets, which are wireless and easier to move around in. As a VR newcomer, I am stepping into fantastical as well as virtually recreated worlds to evaluate what the future has in store in terms of immersion and what still needs some improvements.

The exact opposite of this is the price, since it's quite low at about 200 Euros (~$239). Our review will show the performance that can be expected in the end.

Apple Watch Series 6 in Review: Improved Health Metrics Thanks to watchOS 7 and New Sensor

Well rested. After what seemed like eternal rest Apple has finally awoken and delivered. The new sleep tracking feature is available for older models as well while the new oxygen saturation feature depends on a new sensor only available in Apple's Series 6 Watch. Both of those are features that are already available on other models. Apple is thus playing catch up in regard to health features. Find out in our review whether they did enough to outperform the competition.

AMD upgrade. Lenovo's ThinkPad L series includes inexpensive business laptops that have been able to convince in the past with good input devices and quite high-quality workmanship. The current 15-inch model in the series seeks to carry on this tradition while dramatically improving system performance with the new AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 4750 at the same time. We will clarify in the following review whether the final concept works.

The device manages to cover most but not all of these aspects. The gap to the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 remains.

Premium but pricey. The Dell Latitude 7410 Chromebook Enterprise 2-in-1 is a well-specced, well-crafted, high-end Chrome OS convertible. It sits at the top of the Chromebook market, but its high price tag (starting at $1580) is a major hurdle that ultimately proves to trip up the device.

The price-performance ratio speaks for AMD. With the Ryzen 5 PRO, the 14-incher goes full throttle and outclasses the top models from Intel. In addition, it offers great runtimes, a low noise level, and excellent maintenance options. However, it doesn't manage to achieve the subnotebook-megastar status because of the display.

The launch of Apple's iPhone 12 series has also meant the launch of this OEM's most powerful (albeit 20 watt (W)) charging standard over Lightning to USB type C cables. However, RAVPOWER asserts that it can subsume this new spec with other, more demanding use-cases such as fast-charging for Android flagships. Can the new, dual-port 30W PD Pioneer USB C Wall Charger live up to it?

We take a closer look at the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X and AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, and put both through their paces.

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.

81% HP Pavilion Gaming 15 in review: Inexpensive gaming laptop with a lot of power under the hood

Full throttle. The Pavilion's hardware (Ryzen 7 4800H, GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q) brings all modern computer games smoothly onto the 15.6-inch matte screen (IPS, Full HD, 144 Hz). The latter scores points with fast response times and good color reproduction. This is complemented by an NVMe SSD and 16 GB of RAM (dual-channel mode).

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

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?

2 kg gamer. The Zephyrus M15's main components bring all the latest computer games smoothly to the 15.6-inch matte screen (4k, IPS, Pantone certified). The rest of the interior is equally good: 2x NVMe-SSD (RAID 0), 16 GB RAM (dual channel), Thunderbolt 3.

Intel's zen moment. Asus will be one of the first major OEMs to launch a family of Tiger Lake laptop this October. We test the upcoming ZenBook 14 UX425EA equipped with the Core i7-1165G7 to see how it compares to the rising popularity of AMD Ryzen alternatives.

Acer Swift 5 Sneak Peek Preview: Tiger Lake iGPU attacks Entry-Level GeForce

Acer Swift 5 Sneak Peek Preview: Tiger Lake iGPU attacks Entry-Level GeForce

Does the Iris Graphics Xe wipe the floor with MX350 and Vega 7? Despite limited cooling capabilities in a merely 15 mm thin case Acer's Swift 5 featuring Intel's latest Tiger Lake CPU seems to be a giant leap forwards when compared to Intel's 10th gen processor. Even more importantly GPU performance seems to be in a whole different league. Laptops with dedicated entry-level GPUs will have to take note.

Tiger Lake meets OLED. Intel's Tiger Lake processors have arrived and one of the first review samples is the brand-new Asus ZenBook Flip S. We have a closer look at the compact convertible with the OLED touchscreen. The graphics performance is increased, but the OLED screen consumes a lot of power.

82% Schenker XMG Core 15 (Tongfang GK5NR0O) Laptop Review: AMD gamer with a good price-performance ratio

Ryzen 7 pulls ahead. The configuration we tested costs less than 1500 Euros (~$1745) and is equipped with a powerful Ryzen 7 4800H, an Nvidia RTX 2060, a good IPS display, and a fast SSD. So what's the catch? There really isn't one, even though the XMG Core 15 is far from doing everything right. Particularly the powerful Ryzen improves our subjective impression. All the strengths and weaknesses of the Schenker in the Tongfang case are described in our detailed review.

While there's no SXFI technology involved here, the Creative Sound BlasterX G6 has quite a few highlights that make it a very interesting USB DAC and headphone amplifier for both PCs and consoles. Today, we will try to see who can get the most out of the Sound BlasterX G6 and who should look for something different.

And is it worthwhile to buy it thanks to the quadruple camera and NFC, despite the older operating system? These are just two of the questions we want to answer in this review of the LG cell phone.

Should it have been less? The Samsung Galaxy M21 is a close but lower-priced relative of the Galaxy M31. It offers less storage space and a slightly cut-down camera system. However, it still features the same gigantic battery. Is the Galaxy M21 the ideal smartphone for bargain hunters? Read our review to find out.

Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Trinity Review — Heralding the dawn of 8K gaming

Ampere's Big Kahuna. NVIDIA announced the Ampere lineup earlier this month and one card that prominently stood out was the GeForce RTX 3090. The RTX 3090 was bigger both in size and specs compared to the RTX 3080 with the promise of sailing easily through 8K workloads. 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.

With the Pixel 4a, however, the points of criticism have been reduced to a minimum, and a budget smartphone has been created that among other things can shine with its excellent camera.

81% Huawei MatePad T8 Tablet Review - Is the 99-Euro (~$117) tablet worth it?

Has Huawei missed the memo that the current year is 2020? The Huawei MatePad T8 is a sub-100-Euro (~$118) slate. This is why certain compromises had to be made hardware-wise. If you only had the specifications sheet of the MatePad T8 in front of you, you would probably think it was a tablet from 2017, not 2020.

RAVPOWER PD Pioneer 65W 4-Port GaN Tech USB C Desktop Charger hands-on review

RAVPOWER's PD Pioneer series consists of chargers based on gallium nitride (GaN) technology rather than traditional silicon. One variant offers the ability to charge four devices at once with a maximum combined output of 65 watts (W). Therefore, it is clearly meant to appeal to enthusiasts with many favoured devices all clamouring for juice. Can it match up to its convenient unique selling point?
