LG Watch Style review | TechRadar

The LG Watch Style (built in collaboration with Google) offers everything that’s to love from the best Android Wear smartwatches, ditches the dreaded flat tire, then fills in the gap with cool, useful features and a whole lot of… style. Roll that all up and you’re left with an extremely alluring presentation that makes a mighty strong argument for Google’s wearable platform. But there are some familiar wrinkles here. Battery life is still a low point, and, as independent as…

Microsoft Surface Precision Mouse review: A flagship mouse worthy of the Surface name

Microsoft’s Surface Precision Mouse is a practical PC accessory for Surface owners, especially right-handed ones. Over a week of use, I found the cordless, six-button mouse comfortable and precise. I wasn’t truly happy with it, however, until I downloaded Microsoft’s hard-to-find Mouse and Keyboard Center app, which includes a cool but gimmicky ability to straddle multiple PCs. Priced at $100 (sometimes discounted on Amazon), the Surface Precision Mouse is Microsoft’s flagship PC peripheral. As such, it’s the direct competitor to…

Voog review | TechRadar

Most website builders focus on ease of use and simplicity – in short, delivering a service that even the least technical home user can handle. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it could leave professional users wondering if the builder has the power they really need. Voog takes a slightly different approach. It claims to be simple and straightforward, but the website also highlights its many pro users: businesses, developers, designers and more. This isn’t just a marketing…

Ulefone Armor 2 review | TechRadar

We last had an Ulefone smartphone land on our desk just over a year ago. The original Armor – which is still on sale – made a good impression as it combined a great feature set with plenty of storage, a nice size, and decent value for money that made it a good candidate for the entry-level end of the spectrum. Where to buy? Online Chinese retailer, Gearbest, sells the Ulefone Armor 2 for just over £178 ($250) in gray,…

Chuwi SurBook Mini hands-on: A compact workhorse that ticks all the boxes Review

I have been using the Surbook Mini for several weeks now as my main work machine — initially as a tablet PC with a stylus, but for the last week, as a PC with the additional keyboard. At first glance, the Chuwi SurBook Mini looks exactly like its big brother, Surbook, which I reviewed in September 2017. But there are some subtle differences in this mighty mini. Obviously, it is a smaller device overall. The product size is 268.9mm x…

iPad Mini 4 review | TechRadar

It’s hard to work out what Apple’s up to with its iPad range. You’d have said the mini selection of tablets was being retired after the mini 3 got the minimum upgrade possible… but then the iPad mini 4 was quietly rolled out. And it’s actually rather good. Okay, you can easily argue that it’s the tablet the mini 3 should have been, and there’s an infuriating drop in spec compared to the iPad Air 2 (the mini 2 and…

ConnectSense Smart Outlet review: A solid smart plug for the HomeKit set

It’s hard to get super excited about smart outlet technology, but if you’re living in a HomeKit household, ConnectSense’s Smart Outlet is definitely a gadget to add to your wish list. From a hardware standpoint, the ConnectSense outlet isn’t much to look at, and that’s actually for the best. It’s a rounded-off rectangle that looks a bit like a postmodern sardine can, which helps it to lie flat against the wall. Since it’s designed to cover and replace both outlets…
