Gizmag reviews the Galaxy Gear, Samsung's bold new take on the smartwatch

When a new tech product launches, reviewers usually come to some sort of consensus. Often something just clicks, and you see raves across the board. Other times, the product has obvious flaws, and critics are all equally quick to point those out. The early consensus for the Samsung Galaxy Gear, however, isn't quite jiving with us. Though it's been almost universally panned, we had a very different take on it. Why? Read on, as Gizmag gives you a different perspective on the new Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch.  Read More

Gizmag reviews the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3, with its even bigger screen and improved sty...

Samsung's Galaxy Note 2 was one of our favorite mobile devices from the last year, but it still had some room for improvement. What happens when Samsung takes that already great mobile device, and improves on it in all the right areas? Well, you get an absolute beast of a mobile device, the Galaxy Note 3. Join Gizmag, as we review Samsung's latest flagship phablet.  Read More

Gizmag compares the features and specs of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and HTC's looker o...

The Galaxy Note doesn't have a lot of peers. Sure, there are other huge phablets like the Optimus G Pro and the Xperia Z Ultra, but neither of those has a built-in stylus or quite the same degree of software features to enhance your phablet experience. So while we're taking a long look at the new Galaxy Note 3, why not compare it to one of the best smartphones of 2013, the HTC One? Join Gizmag, as we compare the features and specs of the two popular handsets.  Read More

If you're shopping for a new iPhone, Apple gives you not just one, but three options to choose from. Do you splurge on the flagship iPhone 5s, with its cutting-edge fingerprint sensor? Do you save a few bucks, and get the colorful and capable iPhone 5c? Or maybe you sign a two-year contract and get the aging iPhone 4s for "free?" Let Gizmag help you decide, as we compare the features and specs of the three iPhones available in 2013-2014.  Read More

Apple's iPad and iPad mini may still rule the tablet roost, but Amazon's Kindle Fire lineup also knows how to draw a crowd. Is Apple's iPad mini a better buy than the upcoming Kindle Fire HDX? Join Gizmag, as we put the two side by side, and see what happens.  Read More

Gizmag reviews Grand Theft Auto V, the long-anticipated next chapter from Rockstar Games

If you have a successful gaming franchise, there are two approaches you can take. You can follow the Call of Duty blueprint, and, like clockwork, churn out a new cash cow every holiday season. Or you can take Rockstar Games' approach, take your old sweet time, and deliver the best damn game you can possibly deliver, no matter how long it takes. It's been a long time coming, but Rockstar's latest, Grand Theft Auto V, shows just what a game can be when its developers give it the time and attention it deserves. Read on, as Gizmag reviews GTA V.  Read More

It looks like Apple wasn't quite able to squeeze all of its new products into that iPhone event earlier this month. Today Apple announced an update to the iMac that brings it up to speed with Intel's latest 4th-generation Haswell processors.  Read More

Gizmag reviews Apple's iPhone 5s, the latest iterative 'S-series' update out of Cupertino

Apple has settled into a pattern. While most smartphone makers try to blow our minds once a year with eye-catching new designs, shapes, and sizes, Apple has stuck to its guns: a redesigned iPhone one year, an almost identical-looking iPhone with upgraded internals the next. Is the latest iterative update, the iPhone 5s, worth jumping on? Or is this the year to hold off, or maybe test the Android waters? Let Gizmag try to answer, as we put the new iPhone 5s through the paces.  Read More

The Surface 2 now comes in silver, but it still runs the limited Windows RT

The original Surface was Microsoft's first big attempt to marry its own sexy hardware to Windows 8 software. Neither the Surface RT or Surface Pro, however, appeared to sell well at all, with the company ultimately writing off US$900 million in unsold Surface stock. How do you recover from such a setback? Well, if you're Microsoft, you wash, rinse, and repeat the same thing all over again, as the company today announced a second batch of Surfaces with some much-needed upgrades.  Read More

Gizmag compares the features and specs of the Apple iPhone 5s and Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Compare any two high-end smartphones, and chances are they'll have a lot in common. There's usually a lot of overlap in screen size, internal components, and feature lists. But the new iPhone 5s and Galaxy Note 3 are about as different as two top-tier "phones" (if you can even call them both that) can be. Let's put the two side-by-side, compare their features and specs, and see what happens.  Read More
