HTC Desire Eye Review: Welcome to the (selfie) machine

Marketed as the “phone made for selfies”, the HTC Desire Eye forges a new path for HTC. It’s not all metal, and definitely not a flagship device. After leaning on the One series for two years, HTC is now looking to the mid-range segment, dominated by younger buyers stateside. Is the Desire Eye a new phone that can compete with the likes of a Moto G? Better yet, can it keep pace with an iPhone 5S, or 5C? The short answer: almost.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review: it’s a big deal

Samsung has had a downturn recently, with earnings tanking quarterly and many observers wondering if their “time” had come. They may be down, but Samsung is not out. The Galaxy S5 and Note 4 carry the flags for Samsung’s handset division, and between the weird concept devices and middling mid-rangers, these two pack the most firepower. The Note 4, the bigger of the two, is the latest in a long line of devices that set the trend we’re currently experiencing in smartphone sizing. Is it one of the lone bright spots in a crowded market, or has Samsung really lost a step?

DROID Turbo review: The do-it-all Android phone

Just like 2013, late 2014 brought us a Moto X from Motorola, but also a new DROID lineup. The Verizon-only handset is — like the Moto X refresh — a linear upgrade, void of much to “new” really look at. Still, and again as we saw with the other phone we keep mentioning here, the DROID Turbo isn’t just iterative. As the pound-for-pound champion in the DROID lineup, the Turbo is meant as the flagship Verizon handset. Is it worth of that title, though? We find out.

Moto X (2014) Review

A natural upgrade to the 2013 version, the new Moto X definitely picks up where the former iteration left off. It’s a bit bigger, a touch bolder, and has a hint of class this time around — but does it do justice to the darling of the Android world, or try to hard? We find out in our review.

Polaroid Cube Review: big fun, tiny package

Can a tiny camera with no viewfinder or screen make you want to snap pics? If it’s the Polaroid Cube, the answer is probably “yes”. the small wonder sat behind plexiglass when we first saw it at CES this year, but now we’ve got our hands on it. It’s review time!

Todoist Review – Does it get things done?

For people who are addicted to writing down tasks and to-do lists, the advent of task manager apps on smartphones and tablets seems heaven-sent. But with tons of apps to choose from, and more arriving everyday, it gets more difficult to pick one and stick with it (until the next shiny thing comes along). Should you go for bells and whistles or minimalism? Do you pick one that’s multi-platform or just stick to one task manager per gadget? Do you stick with your phone’s native to do list app or go explore others?

LG G3 review: the phone every Android OEM should make

Latest in their lineup of flagship Android handsets, the LG G3 is one beast of a handset. Packing a big screen into a surprisingly small frame, there are two attractions that everyone keeps chatting about: that screen and the battery life. After toying with the G3 for a few weeks, we’ve drawn our conclusions. Is this the Android phone to beat?

Huawei Ascend P7 Review

It would appear that Huawei has brought a smartphone to market with real potential to take on the big-guns in China. With the Huawei Ascend P7, the company brings a device that’s not only able to take high-quality photos and video, it’s able to present a top-notch display experience as well.

Jabra Rox wireless earphones review

The Rox wireless earbuds are the latest from Jabra. These are touted as offering an ultra-secure fit and massive wireless sound. We've spent quite a bit of time with some of the other Jabra products, and quite honestly, we have really been digging the lineup. Having said that, when Jabra reached out with an offer to check out a set of the Rox wireless earbuds we were pretty anxious. What follows are some thoughts after a week of use.

Verizon LG G Pad 8.3 LTE review

LG released the G Pad 8.3 in the US back in October of 2013. The initial release was a WiFi only model, and that was followed up by a Google Play edition. The GPe model was also WiFi only in terms of connectivity, however a cellular connected model has since come available through Verizon Wireless. We've been playing with a review unit for the past few weeks, and at risk of offering a spoiler in the beginning, we can say there hasn't been any disappointment.
