Camera chassis converts iPhones into mobile journalism rigs

Smartphones can pack substantial optical power, at least for their slight forms, so it's no wonder they're a favored way of capturing life's images. While many photography-enhancing iPhone accessories already exist, the latest is designed to offer a pro-level experience. The Helium Core case allows users to customize iPhones with industry standard 1/4-inch-20 mountable accessories and 37 mm threaded lenses.Read More

iPad Pro 9.7 vs. Microsoft Surface Pro 4

Though Apple is a little late to the 2-in-1 party, playing the role of follower, that doesn't mean the iPad Pro can't still play a key role in the long term. But what about for you – right now? Is the iPad Pro 9.7 worth considering as a Surface Pro 4 alternative? These are two very different devices with a little overlap, and a lot of lopsided use cases.Read More

Comparing the five current iPads: iPad Pro 12.9 vs. Pro 9.7, Air 2, mini 4 and mini 2

iPads aren't flying off the shelves like they used to, and Apple's response has been to reach and rebrand, hoping a new definition of "iPad" will bring the tablet back to the relevance of its glory days. Apple has already changed naming conventions several times (once retroactively) along with a new "Pro" series that's trying to reframe the iPad as a Microsoft Surface rival. Confused?

HTC 10 vs. Samsung Galaxy S7

The two best smartphones of 2016 (so far) are the HTC 10 and Samsung Galaxy S7 (though we're also lumping the Galaxy S7 edge, not pictured in this comparison, into Samsung's side of that conversation). These phones make for a tough decision, especially when you consider the HTC 10's intangibles that don't necessarily show up in specs sheets or features lists. Nonetheless, let's see how their features and specs line up.Read More


iPad Pro 9.7 review: An iPad Air in everything but name ... and price

Apple is still hell-bent on rebranding the iPad, as stagnant sales indicate that customers aren't drooling over tablets the way they used to. iPad Air sales stalling? Let's make a huge one that's kinda like a Surface! Uh oh, that one isn't setting the world on fire either? Here's a smaller version of that big one! Apple's increasingly cluttered iPad lineup today gives us an upgraded successor to the iPad Air 2 with a new name, a few new features and a questionable US$100 price hike. Apparently being the best tablet isn't enough anymore; Apple wants to frame the iPad as a do-it-all 2-in-1 as its path back to world-beating relevance.Read More

HTC 10 vs. iPhone 6s

From what we've seen of the HTC 10, this is a phone capable of getting Apple and Samsung looking worriedly over their shoulders, in terms of specs, design, features and overall experience. Here's everything that makes the HTC 10 such a seriously good flagship, compared with Apple's most recent 4.7-inch iPhone.Read More
