Trivia Crack 2 hands on: More of the same in a prettier package

Tuesday, October 16th, 2018

Etermax will release the sequel to its hit quiz game Trivia Crack on October 25th, but before it officially launches, I've decided to go hands-on with the title so that our readers will know what to expect from the upcoming release. Etermax has made it clear that Trivia Crack 2 has been redesigned to offer more enjoyable elements and an enhanced competitive flavor over its predecessor, but what does that really mean?

Pixel Slate impressions: Android tablets are dead, long live Chromebooks

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

At today's Made by Google event, we finally got a look at the much-leaked Pixel Slate. It's Google's first attempt at bringing Chrome OS to a "tablet first" form-factor. The Pixel Slate is a decidedly premium effort, with a high resolution "Molecular Display," 8th gen Intel CPUs, and stylish metal design — paired with an appropriate $600-$1600 price tag. It might be on the expensive side, but since Google is transitioning its own tablet efforts to Chrome OS, I think it's safe to say the end of Android tablets is nigh.

PAYDAY: Crime War hands-on: A solid online shooter hobbled by poor controls and uneven matchmaking

Monday, September 24th, 2018

PAYDAY: Crime War is a new first-person shooter for Android that recently entered into a closed beta on September 10th, and it runs until October 14th. Unlike Payday 2, you can now play as cops and robbers, which is an interesting twist. The idea is that teams of fours cops face get to off against teams of four robbers, and it works out well. Of course, this is still a Payday title, so you can also expect plenty of loot to collect, equip, and upgrade, along with a ranked mode for those that take their mobile shooters seriously.

Blade Runner 2049 hands-on: Yet another hero collection RPG

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

The highly anticipated Blade Runner 2049 film first hit theatres in October 2017, and it is usually around this release window that we see tie-in games pop up on the Play Store. That's not what has happened here. Apparently Next Games and Warner Bros. aren't bothered by the idea of releasing such a game a year after the film that inspires it, though I have to wonder why it took this much time to clone the gameplay found in MARVEL Strike Force.

LG G7 One and G7 Fit hands-on: Surprisingly pleasing hardware that will live or die based on pricing

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

When it came time to review the LG G7 earlier this year, I was conflicted. Here was a quite nice, generally well-executed smartphone, but one I just couldn't get really excited about — features like its AI camera and hardware Google Assistant button were forgettable at best, and I had trouble justifying the flagship-level pricing. But at its heart, there was a lot of potential there, which is exactly why I was excited last month to learn about the debut of the LG G7 One and G7 Fit, two phones very much cut from the same cloth as their namesake.

ZTE Axon 9 Pro hands-on: ZTE fought hard to bring us this iPhone clone

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

We will no doubt look back at the spring of 2018 as an era of intense ZTE drama. Following an enforcement action by the US Commerce Department, ZTE was cut off from all its US suppliers. The company partially shut down and put all projects on hold until it could work out a deal with the US government. One of those delayed projects was the Axon 9 Pro, which was finally unveiled at IFA 2018.

Hands-on with the Asus ROG Phone: It’s actually kind of cool

Monday, September 3rd, 2018

It is a well-established fact that "gaming" phones are little more than a marketing gimmick. There's nothing about these devices that make them better for gaming than the next high-end smartphone. Well, the Asus ROG Phone might be the exception that proves the rule. I was skeptical of the ROG Phone when it was announced, just like I am of every other supposed gaming phone. To my surprise, I actually liked using the phone, and I can see how it could credibly be called a "gaming phone."

The product renders Asus released earlier this year didn't make the ROG Phone look very attractive.

Hands on with the Motorola One and One Power: One of these phones doesn’t need to exist

Sunday, September 2nd, 2018

One thing you've got to get used to when attending international trade shows is that you're going to see a lot of interesting phones that just aren't meant for you — sometimes your home market's going to get passed over, and the manufacturer simply has another audience in mind. That's a situation I've been facing at IFA 2018 with the latest batch of Motorola smartphones to debut, as both the Motorola One and Motorola One Power target various global markets — not including the US.

Hands on with the HTC U12 Life: The blessing and the curse of feeling nothing like the U12+

Saturday, September 1st, 2018

Last year HTC went after the mid-range market with a new product line, introducing the U11 Life a few months after the debut of the flagship U11. And while it did a surface-deep impression of the U11's design, cheap-feeling materials and a price that was just a little too high kept it from really being a competitive option for shoppers on a budget. Now the series is back with the U12 Life, and this week at IFA 2018 we went hands-on with the phone to form some impressions about whether or not this new model will be any more successful.

Hands-on with the Sony Xperia XZ3: The first exciting Sony phone in years

Friday, August 31st, 2018

Sony still refreshes its flagship phones every few months, but the design doesn't usually change much from one generation to the next. The new Xperia XZ3 does indeed have a very "Sony" look, but the phone is more different than you'd expect from the press renders. Don't get me wrong—this is still a Sony phone with all the questionable hardware and software decisions that come with it. However, it's the most modern-looking Sony phone I've used.
