Medion Erazer X1000 MR Glasses (Windows Mixed Reality) Review

Medion Erazer X1000 MR Glasses (Windows Mixed Reality) Review

Next try. Even though the basic technology has been around for a while, Virtual Reality has not achieved a sweeping success yet. With Windows Mixed Reality, Microsoft makes a new attempt, competing against the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. We are testing the VR system with the Medion Erazer X1000.
HP Spectre x360 15t-bl100 (i7-8550U, MX150) Convertible Review

88% HP Spectre x360 15t-bl100 (i7-8550U, MX150) Convertible Review

Quiet refresh. HP's large Spectre 2-in-1, the Spectre x360 15t, now comes with eighth-generation quad-core i7 processor, refreshed Nvidia graphics and a faster SSD. The striking aluminum chassis remains unchanged. How the updated hardware components affect the performance, temperature, fan noise and the battery life is the the subject of our review update.

First Impressions: Microsoft Surface Book 2 Convertible Review

First Impressions: Microsoft Surface Book 2 Convertible Review

Powerhouse performance? Microsoft says the new Surface Book 2 combines the best of two worlds and is also the most powerful Surface device yet. The specs look promising thanks to the new Kaby Lake-R processor and Nvidia's Pascal GPU. We already have a test model of the convertible and share our initial impressions.

Bluboo S8 Smartphone Review

73% Bluboo S8 Smartphone Review

1/6th the price, 1/6th the performance. Bluboo is capitalizing on the Galaxy S8 craze with its own copycat version for $150 USD. The Bluboo S8 would have been quite impressive if it weren't for some deep faults.

Huawei Y6 Pro 2017 Smartphone Review

81% Huawei Y6 Pro 2017 Smartphone Review

Small. Fancy. Cheap. Huawei's Y6 Pro (2017) is the manufacturer's latest Y-series model. We liked the entry-level smartphone's fancy metal case, its very decent hardware, and its compact size. Unfortunately, we also found one particular issue with lots and lots of room for improvement.

84% Dell Inspiron 15 7570 (i7-8550U, 940MX) Laptop Review

Top outside, top inside, but ... The new Dell aims to succeed with powerful and high-quality components. Will the all-rounder also convince us in the test and earn a purchase recommendation?

Need for Speed Payback Laptop and Desktop Benchmarks

Need for Speed Payback Laptop and Desktop Benchmarks

Revenge is sweet. The name says it all for the latest installment of the Need for Speed series. For a racing game, Payback turns out to be surprisingly story-focused. Our benchmark test will show if the technical aspects are convincing as well.
MSI GF62VR 7RF (7700HQ, GTX 1060, FHD 60 Hz) Laptop Review

80% MSI GF62VR 7RF (7700HQ, GTX 1060, FHD 60 Hz) Laptop Review

Priced to perform. The MSI GF62VR packs a punch for not a lot of change. However, users will have to deal with a fairly low quality screen and a cheaper plastic build quality. Are these tradeoffs worth the savings?

Schenker Technologies XMG Core 15 (i7-7700HQ, GTX 1060, Full HD) Laptop Review

84% Schenker Technologies XMG Core 15 (i7-7700HQ, GTX 1060, Full HD) Laptop Review

Fast, but hot and hungry. Schenker is using a new case for its Core 15 laptop and they have been keeping quiet about where they got it from. We will review whether the change was worth it and how well this 15-inch piece compares to similarly equipped gaming laptops.

87% Eurocom Tornado F5W (Xeon E3-1280 v5, Quadro P5000) Workstation Review

Zero compromises… Today we evaluate the Tornado F5W, a high-end workstation from Eurocom. Considering that it’s decked out with an Intel Xeon E3-1280 v5 desktop CPU and NVIDIA Quadro P5000 GPU along with an NVMe SSD and 64 GB of RAM, are there any weaknesses to speak of? If so, we’ll find them.

Doogee BL5000 Smartphone Review

78% Doogee BL5000 Smartphone Review

High-grade budget smartphone. On paper, the Doogee BL5000 has everything that an entry-level smartphone could ever dream of: a big battery, a high-resolution camera, lots of storage and a reasonably fast processor all at the entry-level price-point of 130 Euros (~$151). But can it also live up to high expectations?

84% Dell Inspiron 17 7773 (i7-8550U, 16 GB, 17" Touch) Convertible Review

The convertible in the 17-inch format. Yes, you read right. A convertible in the 17-inch format is an unusual combination. However, anyone who does not want to go without the advantages of a convertible even when working stationary will really like the device. You can find out in this test whether the new update with a faster CPU and GPU can convince us. Unfortunately our complaints are all too familiar.

80% Fujitsu LifeBook E756 (i7-6600U, HD520) Laptop Review

Plenty of ports. The LifeBook E756 is a notebook for business users. In our review, the 15-inch notebook shines with its great maintenance features; however, in other places it has some minor difficulties. What kind of overall impression the device has left on us and how it performs when compared to the competition, you can find out in our review.

Call of Duty: WWII Laptop and Desktop Benchmarks

Call of Duty: WWII Laptop and Desktop Benchmarks

Lukewarm Reception. With the previous installments in the series having drifted further and further into the realm of futuristic combat, Call of Duty is returning to its roots with its latest game, WWII. While the gameplay has changed little since the early days, the technology present has made improvements in leaps and bounds. We will test which hardware configurations are needed for the first person shooter game.
Google Pixelbook Chromebook Review

86% Google Pixelbook Chromebook Review

The Chromebook poster child. The most expensive Chromebook available is unsurprisingly fast and very versatile. Just be prepared to bring all your USB Type-C adapters along for the trip.

HP ZBook 14u G4 (7500U, FirePro W4190M) Workstation Review

80% HP ZBook 14u G4 (7500U, FirePro W4190M) Workstation Review

The consumer workstation. The new ZBook 14u encompasses exactly 14 inches and is for those who seek a reliable companion above all else. We are quite fond of the overall package, but the hardware choices leave a lot to be desired.

Ryzen 3 Review: 1200 and 1300X for Desktop PCs

Ryzen 3 Review: 1200 and 1300X for Desktop PCs

With AMD's Ryzen 3, the Zen architecture has trickled down into the entry-level market. Lacking SMT, the affordable CPUs did fairly well in our tests regardless, and are most certainly a viable alternative and worthy of a recommendation for entry-level systems.

Assassin's Creed Origins Notebook and Desktop Benchmarks

Assassin's Creed Origins Notebook and Desktop Benchmarks

CPU eater. While frame rates in games usually scale with the performance of the graphics card, Assassin’s Creed Origins also requires a fair bit of CPU power. We examine whether the hardware requirements of Assassin's Creed Origins are justified.
Asus ZenFone AR (ZS571KL) Smartphone Review

87% Asus ZenFone AR (ZS571KL) Smartphone Review

Enhanced Reality. Asus's ZenFone AR combines Augmented Reality with Virtual Reality: it is, after all, the first smartphone ever certified for Google Tango as well as Daydream. The most interesting question is whether or not its AR- and VR-features justify its high price of approximately $770.

Dell XPS 13 9360 (FHD, i7, Iris) Laptop Review

87% Dell XPS 13 9360 (FHD, i7, Iris) Laptop Review

More GPU or more CPU performance? Dell offers the popular XPS 13 with faster Intel Iris graphics, but can the cooling solution handle the additional performance, and is it a good upgrade? Or should you get the one of the new Kaby Lake-R chips instead?

Acer Aspire 3 A315-21 (A6-9220, Radeon R4) Laptop Review

74% Acer Aspire 3 A315-21 (A6-9220, Radeon R4) Laptop Review

Simple office computer. Acer's 15.6-inch laptop offers an AMD APU from the Stoney Ridge generation, a quick SSD, and an additional 2.5-inch hard drive. The battery life leaves something to be desired.

Lenovo ThinkPad L470 (i5-7200U, FHD-IPS) Laptop Review

85% Lenovo ThinkPad L470 (i5-7200U, FHD-IPS) Laptop Review

Gray mouse with legacy features. In Lenovo's wide lineup of 14-inch ThinkPads, the L470 finds its place in the lower midfield: below the T series, but above the E series. Why the low-priced business notebook is highly recommended and which advantages it has over the other models, you can find out in our extensive review.

Cheap and compact. The Kiicaa Mix retails for less than $150 USD but fails to carry the necessary 4G LTE bands for most users in the United States.

Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro

86% Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro i5 Laptop Review

Who invented it? To recognize similarities to the Apple design language in other manufacturers has become a tradition by now. The inhibition threshold for this is particularly low in the Chinese brands. With the Mi Notebook Pro, Xiaomi follows Apple's MacBook Pro, at least in terms of the looks. At a price below 1000 Euros (~$1160), the device offers an attractive package with a quad-core CPU, dedicated graphics card, and pleasing aluminum case. But what is behind the exterior?

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition Desktop GPU Review

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition Desktop GPU Review

Bridge the Gap. With the GTX 1070 Ti, Nvidia brings out a lower-priced alternative to the GTX 1080 and, in the process, forgoes the more expensive GDDR5X video memory. In the review, the Founders Edition card shall show how well it stacks up against the in-house competition.

Gigabyte Aero 15X (i7-7700HQ, GTX 1070 Max-Q, FHD) Laptop Review

87% Gigabyte Aero 15X (i7-7700HQ, GTX 1070 Max-Q, FHD) Laptop Review

Sleek, slim, speedy. In addition to a powerful CPU and a potent GPU the thin Aero 15X is also equipped with a matte IPS panel, an NVMe-SSD, and Thunderbolt 3. Even battery life is pretty decent.

MSI GE63VR Raider-075 (i7-7700HQ, GTX 1070, Full HD) Laptop Review

85% MSI GE63VR Raider-075 (i7-7700HQ, GTX 1070, Full HD) Laptop Review

Daring to be imperfect. What, a TN panel in an $1800 gaming notebook? Yes, MSI has done it again and prioritized 120-Hz and quick response times. If you can work with this, you will probably be happy to overlook the few problems this otherwise well-made notebook has. Only one of MSI's decisions is rather questionable.

HP 14-bs007ng (i5-7200U, FHD) Laptop Review

82% HP 14-bs007ng (i5-7200U, FHD) Laptop Review

Compact office laptop. HP launches a 14-incher with a potent processor, a fast SSD, and a matte IPS display. Despite its ~$820 price tag, it isn't devoid of weaknesses.

87% Lenovo Yoga 920-13IKB (i7-8550U, FHD) Convertible Review

Watchband-hinged 2-in-1. Lenovo's flagship consumer convertible with 13.9-inch screen now comes with Kaby Lake R hardware and a few other noteworthy updates. Our review takes a look how the Yoga 920 compares to other 2-in-1s as far as performance, battery life, and fan noise are concerned.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro Smartphone Review

91% Huawei Mate 10 Pro Smartphone Review

Wow, but with minor pitfalls. With the Pro version of the Mate 10 series, we currently have the strongest Huawei smartphone in our test. The storage equipment and camera have been improved, and the Chinese phone now has an OLED screen in the 2:1 format. Together with the Kirin 970, a SoC that has an additional NPU is used. Sounds great, but Huawei has made cuts in some places. Update: Testing completed.

84% Acer Swift 3 SF314-52G (i7-8550U, MX150, FHD) Laptop Review

Dim screen. Acer stuffs lots of computing power into the compact Swift 3 and even manages to deliver long battery life. The dim, glossy screen is its weak spot.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Laptop And Desktop Benchmarks

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Laptop And Desktop Benchmarks

Legendary or trashy? Like its predecessor the new Wolfenstein II combines humorous elements with a rather grave and serious suppressive regime rebel story. The underlying framework has been completely renovated though, and it is now based on the id Tech 6 engine. Our benchmark test will reveal which (mobile) GPU is going to be capable of running the first person shooter smoothly.
Asus ROG GL503VD-DB74 (7700HQ, GTX 1050) Laptop Review

84% Asus ROG GL503VD-DB74 (7700HQ, GTX 1050) Laptop Review

Another year, another refresh. The new Asus GL503VD represents a slight aesthetic redesign of Asus' highly-revered ROG line. Some will appreciate the simpler, less "gamery" redesign, but not much else has changed. The GTX 1050 still makes for a decent (if noisy) entry-level gaming experience.

85% Acer Aspire 5 A517-51G (i7-8550U, MX 150, Full-HD) Laptop Review

Fit primarily for work! The new Aspire 5 is based on Intel's 8th-gen Core series. On top of that, the 17-incher offers a dedicated graphics card. Unfortunately, it will only manage to impress casual gamers. In this review, you will learn how well the new CPU generation stacks up against the old guard.

Chuwi LapBook Air 14.1 (N3450, FHD) Laptop Review

74% Chuwi LapBook Air 14.1 (N3450, FHD) Laptop Review

Attractive and slow. Chuwi's MacBook Air clone certainly looks nice and could easily pass as an Ultrabook twice the price. Dig a little deeper, however, and the small flaws quickly begin to crack.

87% Razer Blade Pro 2017 (i7-7700HQ, GTX 1060, FHD) Laptop Review

Razor's edge. The latest Blade Pro drops a lot of what made last year's Blade Pro so unique. Perhaps surprisingly, the changes and downgrades have made for an even better and more balanced gaming machine in many ways.

Gaming bolide. The Alienware 15 R3 has a matte 60-Hz IPS display that supports Nvidia's G-Sync Technology. The potent hardware displays all current games smoothly.

ELEX Laptop and Desktop Benchmarks

ELEX Laptop and Desktop Benchmarks

Diamond in the rough. Although at first glance ELEX appears unpolished, beneath the tough exterior there is a suspenseful and multi-faceted role-playing game that skillfully weaves sci-fi and fantasy elements together. But how well does the mixed-genre game run on various laptop and desktop GPUs? Read on to find out.
Fujitsu LifeBook E557 (i3-7100U, HD620) Laptop Review

77% Fujitsu LifeBook E557 (i3-7100U, HD620) Laptop Review

Old school. They do not come around very often, notebooks that allow the users to replace the battery without having to tear the whole thing apart. Devices that have enough removable covers to enable the users to swap out every replaceable component. And finally the serial port, which is, nowadays, almost completely extinct. Our test device possesses all these features. The question is, though: What else does it have to offer?

Microsoft Surface Laptop (i7-7660U)

85% Microsoft Surface (i7-7660U) Laptop Review

The wolf in sheep's clothing? Why is there another review of the Microsoft Surface Laptop i7? Is this just a rebranding of the recently released i5-based Surface Laptop, but with an Intel Core i7-7660U instead of the i5-7200U? So it is faster and more expensive. And this is what comes to mind at a first glance, however the devil is in the details. There is one thing that we can tell you right off the bat, though: It is becoming scarce!

The Evil Within 2 Laptop and Desktop Benchmarks

The Evil Within 2 Laptop and Desktop Benchmarks

Thrilling. While it is rather rare that horror movies stand out due to their high quality, there are various horror games for the home computer that could be considered first-rate. In addition to "Resident Evil 7" we could also currently mention "The Evil Within 2" here, which we tested for its performance using several notebooks and desktop GPUs.

HP ZBook Studio G4 (Xeon, Quadro M1200, DreamColor) Workstation Review

86% HP ZBook Studio G4 (Xeon, Quadro M1200, DreamColor) Workstation Review

Criticism accepted. HP does not touch the chassis of the ZBook Studio G4 and focuses on the internals. Our test model shows this was a good decision. The DreamColor display is also very good, and both the temperature as well as noise development are better than before. But you should not expect long battery runtimes.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War Laptop and Desktop Benchmarks

Mass slaughter. After its 2014 predecessor left a surprisingly good impression (not in the least thanks to the Nemesis System), Warner Bros. Interactive has launched its successor, “Shadow of War”, a well-made action game based upon the Lord of the Rings universe. We test out the hardware requirements for PC and notebooks.

Twin Turbo. While most manufacturers give their gaming notebooks only one dedicated graphics unit, Gigabyte has presented its brand-new 17-inch Aorus X9 with two Nvidia GPUs. We will find out whether it makes sense to use a GeForce GTX 1070 in SLI mode or if this feature has more disadvantages than advantages.

Three lenses. With the Nokia 8, HMD Global now also revives the legendary Finnish brand in the premium range. At a fair price of around 580 Euros (~$682; $565 in some US online retailers), the buyer gets a well-built and well-configured 5.3-inch handset whose dual-camera can score with a never before seen feature.

84% HP Envy 13-ad006ng (i7-7500U, MX150) Laptop Review

HP XPS 13 for gaming. A compact 13.3-inch Ultrabook with GeForce MX150 graphics and a metal chassis? Sounds like a solid concept. In our comprehensive review update we'll try to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the HP Envy 13 with MX150 and Core i7-7500U.

79% Lenovo IdeaPad 320-15IKB (7200U, 940MX, FHD) Laptop Review

Disappointing Screen. Lenovo's 15.6-inch device offers a powerful Kaby Lake processor, a dedicated graphics card and an SSD. The built-in screen proves to be a 100% blunder on Lenovo's part. The battery life will not take anyone's breath away either.

82% MSI GF72VR 7RF (7700HQ, GTX 1060, 120 Hz) Laptop Review

Blown away? MSI is once again introducing another line of gaming notebooks aimed at the consumer market. The new GF72VR brings a high refresh rate display and sheds the optical drive but changes little else. Do these changes leave us breathless, or is the GF72VR full of hot air.

84% MSI GS73VR 7RG (i7-7700HQ, GTX 1070 Max-Q, FHD) Laptop Review

Finally, a GS notebook with quieter fans. The MSI GS family has always been popular for its attractively thin design and enthusiast-level horsepower. Incorporating a Max-Q GPU is perhaps the best thing to happen to the series as it directly addresses one of its biggest and most persistent issues.

81% Asus VivoBook S15 S510UQ (i5-7200U, 940MX) Laptop Review

The Unfinished. Asus' multimedia-office newcomer compels with its elegant design and a particularly light and compact case, but can hardly keep up in the gaming arena with its GeForce 940MX. Despite many good attributes, we cannot give a purchase recommendation to the device, which is not just due to the modest battery life.

Power play. HP is pushing the limits on how powerful a Pavilion system can be without calling it a gaming notebook. The Pavilion 15 Power is the best and potentially most expensive in the series yet.

86% Acer Aspire V15 Nitro BE VN7-593G (7700HQ, GTX 1060) Laptop Review

Difficult heritage. The new Nitro has to connect to the success of its Skylake predecessor. Although it has more gaming power for this, it is not enough for a Very Good rating. Where is the shortcoming? Update 06-29-2017: 4K display

Sony Xperia XA1 Smartphone

84% Sony Xperia XA1 Smartphone Review

Unique mid-range. Xperia XA1 is the name of Sony's mid-range smartphone this year. With high-resolution cameras and an extravagant design, it definitely has what it takes to be a crowd-pleaser. But can the SoC deliver enough power? And what about battery life? We will answer these and other questions in the test.

Microsoft Surface Pro 2017 (i5-7300U, 256 GB) Convertible Review

90% Microsoft Surface Pro 2017 (i5-7300U, 256 GB) Convertible Review

Olden but golden. Without a USB Type-C or Thunderbolt 3, the 2017 model of Microsoft's Surface Pro seems kind of dowdy. The fanless operation we have already seen in Acer's Alpha 12, and unfortunately the device throttles noticeably. Is the only benefit left really its decent battery life?

Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) Duos Smartphone Review

83% Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) Duos Smartphone Review

All good things... With the update of its attractive Galaxy J series, we have the third generation of the J5 in our test. Samsung has radically changed the design and otherwise performs meaningful fine tuning. Fans of removable batteries will be disappointed, since the battery is now also built into the J5.

Blackview P2 Smartphone Review

79% Blackview P2 Smartphone Review

Blackviewberry without keyboard. Not just the name of the Chinese manufacturer Blackview seems to be inspired by the Canadian manufacturer that used to be called RIM. But the smartphone with the simple name of "P2" is not trying to impress with a keyboard, but rather with good connectivity and a large battery. The specifications look promising, but is that enough?

Apple MacBook Pro 13 (Mid 2017, i5, Touch Bar) Review

90% Apple MacBook Pro 13 (Mid 2017, i5, Touch Bar) Review

Early update. Apple already updates the MacBook Pro 13 after around 8 months. Modern Kaby Lake processors and faster SSDs are supposed to provide more performance. But did the manufacturer fix some issues of the predecessor?
Update: The review is now complete.

88% Toshiba Portégé X30 (i7-7600U, 256 GB) Laptop Review

Featherweight champion? Toshiba's Portégé X30 packs tons of features in one of the lightest bodies currently available. Can the X30 compete with other thin-and-light heavyweights, or will it get knocked out?

Huawei MediaPad T3 10

81% Huawei MediaPad T3 10 Tablet Review

Fast - or not really? The Huawei MediaPad T3 10 impresses with a quite high processor performance for lower mid-range tablets, but still cannot convince in terms of overall performance. How it manages to do this, you can find out in our test.

Apple MacBook 12 (2017)

90% Apple MacBook 12 (2017) Laptop Review

What is new? As well as the quietly updated Air 13, the MacBook 12 has also got a new CPU and a faster SSD. With it, Apple aims to be "years ahead". "Compared to whom or what?" you might ask. Probably in comparison to the Air 13, whose essentials are still from 2012? This could be successful; at least in part.

92% Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) Tablet Review

Big Player. The Apple iPad Pro 12.9 has been updated not only with a faster SoC but also with an improved camera and display. We haven't found much to criticize, but the giant amongst its brethren is not a full replacement for a laptop just yet.

82% MSI GL72 7RD-028 Laptop (Core i7, Full HD) Review

Nothing new. MSI has given its entry-level 17-inch GL72 a hardware update. The new service package is enough to enjoy Full HD resolution adapted to the current gaming world. However, the device cannot offer any other improvements or innovations.

80% Lenovo Flex 11 Chromebook Laptop Review

Barebones utilitarianism… One truly bright spot for Chromebooks has been the education sector, wherein their adoption has been disproportionately high. In recognition of this opportunity, Lenovo seizes the moment with what is arguably their most utilitarian—yet still affordable—notebook to date, specifically intended for students.

Xiaomi Mi6 Smartphone Review

89% Xiaomi Mi6 Smartphone Review

Insider tip. Anyone looking for a powerful high-end smartphone now, should take a closer look at the Xiaomi Mi6. For about 400 Euros (~$450), Xiaomi's flagship smartphone offers quite a lot, except for LTE-band-20 support. As our test shows, the sixth generation of the Mi series also cannot keep up with the high-end competition in one respect.

90% Acer TravelMate P648-G2 (i7, 256 GB) Laptop Review

The predecessor of Acer's TravelMate P648-G2 managed a very good fourth place among devices by Dell, Lenovo, and HP. The present test proves that Acer remains close to its competitors thanks to regular component updates and that it continues to establish itself as a manufacturer of high-performance business laptops.

Light business companion! We recently tested the ThinkPad X1 Carbon extensively. We now tested a slightly thinned-down version based on an Intel Core i5 for you, and we can show you whether this represents an advantage compared to the otherwise identical model based on the Intel Core i7.

Apple MacBook Air 13 2017

86% Apple MacBook Air 13 2017 Laptop (1.8 GHz) Review

There's life in the old dog yet. It might be hard to believe, but Apple's MacBook Air 13 (unibody aluminum design, 1.35 kg/~3 lb, 17 mm/~0.7 in, 13.3-inch, 1440 x 900) has just turned 7 years old. Once at the very forefront of the vanguard of Ultrabooks, it has now turned into a beloved grandpa.

84% MSI GT83VR 7RF (7920HQ, GTX 1080 SLI, Full HD) Laptop Review

A study in what is possible. With the 18-inch GT83VR 7RF, the gaming expert MSI shows what is currently technically possible (in terms of performance) in the notebook segment. Intel's most powerful mobile Kaby Lake processor is accompanied by two Pascal GPUs. However, the price is as extreme as the speed: over 5000 Euros (~$5600) makes the GT83VR 7RF an expensive toy for enthusiasts.

89% Lenovo ThinkPad P51 (Xeon, 4K) Workstation Review

More performance and a very good display. Lenovo's ThinkPad P51 is a full-fledged mobile workstation with a 15-inch display, powerful Xeon quad-core processor and a professional graphics card from Nvidia. The 4K screen in particular convinced in the review.

82% Lenovo Yoga 720-15IKB (7700HQ, FHD, GTX 1050) Laptop Review

Convertible Powerhouse. The Lenovo Yoga line has long been the leader in the 2-in-1 notebook market. With the redesigned Yoga 720, the Chinese manufacturer looks to expand that dominance. Can the 15-inch model be flexible enough for consumers, or will it snap under pressure?

88% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2017 (Core i7, OLED) Convertible Review

Premium convertible. Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Yoga is clearly in a league of its own - at least as far as the price is concerned. The convertible features high-end components and a very good OLED panel. How the top-of-the-line version of the X1 Yoga with Intel Core i7 CPU compares to its competitors is the subject of our comprehensive review.
Update: Battery runtime and measurements of the WQHD-IPS panel added.

81% Samsung Galaxy XCover 4 (SM-G390F) Smartphone Review

Robust and stylish? Samsung aims to provide a smartphone that survives in rough environments, but also radiates elegance at the same time. The handset is, in fact, robust and not too bulky. We checked whether its everyday suitability is just as impressive.

92% Apple iPad Pro 10.5 Tablet Review

A great tablet, but not a pro. The iPad Pro 10.5 is Apple's second generation of the Pro-series. The screen is definitely the star of the show. It has not only grown in size, but it also offers 120 Hz, HDR and claims coverage of the P3 color space. The tablet is on its way to the top with the A10X SoC, but it will still not be a satisfying notebook replacement.

Zotac GeForce GT 1030 Review

Tiny Pascal spin-off! With the launch of last year´s new Pascal generation, Nvidia stirred up the high-end segment of graphics cards and bit by bit added mid-range and now entry-level products. The Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 by Zotac offers a low-profile PCB and 2 GB of GDDR5 memory. The question this review is about to answer: Is this GPU branded for use in a living-room PC or can it be actually suitable for gaming?
