Ever since HTC rebooted its smartphone lineup with 2013's One M7, the company has been making some of the best smartphones money can buy. But with an improving field of competitors, is the company's third "One" good enough? Join Gizmag, as we review the new HTC One M9.
Last month Apple finally announced a MacBook Air with Retina Display … only it’s just called "the new MacBook."
Apple also announced a new version of the classic MacBook Air, which is now basically Apple's budget notebook (though no MacBook is really "budget"). Confused? We don't blame you. Let's break down their features and specs to see if we can clear things up.
It looks like Pebble wasn't the only company to come up with a past/future based smartwatch UI. San Francisco-based startup Olio has its own take on a time-based wearable, with its sharp-looking new Olio Model One.
As much as we've talked about the big early 2015 flagship smartphones, one thing we've been mum on is pricing. We're still waiting on word about the Galaxy S6's price tag, but today HTC is getting more specific about the One M9 – including the option to buy online starting at midnight EDT on March 27 (i.e. tonight in the US).
Virtual reality is in an odd place right now. Countless companies are competing to one-up each other, adding features and upgrades to supposedly make their headsets stand out … but most of them are unreleased products. It's essentially unreleased beta hardware duking it out to score public perception points (and, by association, woo developers). Leap Motion
and Razer's OSVR
took the latest step in that game today.
Google's Nexus devices have never enjoyed the mainstream popularity of Samsung Galaxy flagships, but the pure Android handsets are still some of the most significant phones every year. Let's compare Google's latest handset, the Nexus 6
, to Samsung's two big upcoming releases, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge
A couple of weeks ago, Apple announced a product that many notebook users have been waiting on for years: an ultra-light and thin MacBook that also has a Retina Display. How does it size up next to Apple's pro-level laptop? Join Gizmag, as we compare the features and specs of the new 12-in MacBook
and the 13-in MacBook Pro with Retina Display
Now that Apple is set to launch a MacBook
that's lighter than the MacBook Air and
has a Retina Display, where does that leave the 13-in Retina MacBook Pro? And is its new Force Touch trackpad an upgrade-worthy feature? Join Gizmag, as we review the 2015 (13-in) MacBook Pro with Retina Display.
