Stories in Hands-on

Polaroid XS100i Action Cam review

When it comes to “action cams”, the choices can be expensive. A basic GoPro setup can run upwards of $500, and while some lesser-known offerings may cost a lot less, they tend to offer mixed results. The Polaroid XS100i is an action camera that may not offer all that a GoPro would, but in many ways we found it to be a really good choice for those looking for good performance without wanting to drop a lot of cash.

Cruising with Sailfish OS: a preview of possibilities

When Finnish company Jolla tried to fulfill its promise of bringing forth a smartphone unlike any other, it didn't exactly make a big splash. Nonetheless, it is still continuing to send ripples that are now reaching Android shores. Here we take a peek at what more adventurous users might soon see on their home screen or even on their device itself.

Timehop app hands-on: providing a daily trip back in time

Timehop, as a service, has been around for many years now. But given the app just recently arrived in the Play Store, it may be one that flew under the radar of many Android users. The premise here is simple, Timehop takes you back in time. The app is one that you'll only need to launch once per day, and it will show you what you were doing one, two, three and four years earlier.

HTC One (M8) Dot View case hands-on

Along with the phone itself, HTC also unveiled some accessories for the One (M8). We've seen a variety including a Car Kit, Battery Bar and BoomBass. Not to mention, there were a few case options being shown including the fairly standard Flip Case and the multicolored Double Dip case. Perhaps the most interesting of the bunch is this last though, the HTC Dot View case.

HTC One (M8): hands-on and first-impressions

The HTC One (M8) has been officially unveiled. This means the rumors and leaks will be coming to an end. But perhaps more important here -- it means we are finally going to be able to put the handset to the test. We are curious to see how it stands up in comparison to the previous year HTC One. And we are also curious to see how well it stands up against the other recently announced flagship -- the Samsung Galaxy S5.

Acer Android AIO TA272HUL: hands-on and first-impressions

Acer originally unveiled the TA272HUL Android All-in-One back in January. The announcement arrived during CES. More to the point for today -- Acer recently provided us with a unit for review. We have to admit that having Android (in this case 4.2 Jelly Bean with the Play Store) running on a 27-inch display seems a bit crazy. We'll likely have more to say as we get deeper into the review, but for now we wanted to share some images and some first impression style thoughts.
