Moto Z Play Droid & Hasselblad True Zoom Mod Review

I’ve recently gotten the chance to review both the Moto Z and Z Force. They’re both some of the best flagship smartphones you can get right now, but I came to expect that by looking at the news surrounding the devices and their respective spec sheets. However, when it came time to give the recently introduced Moto Z Play (announced back in August 2016) some … Continue reading Moto Z Play Droid & Hasselblad True Zoom Mod Review

Lenovo Yoga Book (Windows) Review

Lenovo’s Yoga Book is different. It’s got an ultra-sleek design, a somewhat new take on the keyboard, Wacom tablet-style capabilities, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and wants to be a laptop of some sorts. At first glance, it looks more like a concept of something rather an on-the-market device, but it’s indeed ready to be picked up by hungry consumers starting at $499. There’s two versions of the … Continue reading Lenovo Yoga Book (Windows) Review

Moto Z Force Droid Review: The Safer Bet

A while back, I got the opportunity to review Lenovo’s 2016 flagship smartphone known as the Moto Z. I praised it for being so speedy, having nice, clean software, and offering a great and seamless modularity system known as Moto Mods. Of course, I did have some caveats like the fact that the phone felt a bit too thin for my taste, the camera isn’t all … Continue reading Moto Z Force Droid Review: The Safer Bet

HP Elite x3 Review: A Productivity Dream with a Lot of Potential

Back in February at MWC 2016, HP unveiled a smartphone that many (including myself) called “breathtaking.” It’s called the Elite x3, and the motive behind the name is simple: HP wants users to treat this handset as their smartphone, laptop, and PC. How would you do that, you may ask? By using all the productivity features HP built into the device, but mainly via Continuum, … Continue reading HP Elite x3 Review: A Productivity Dream with a Lot of Potential

Lenovo ThinkPad 13 Chromebook Review

I’ve never tried a Chromebook before, let alone owned one. But while in the hunt for new gadgets to test out, I was offered to try the ThinkPad 13 Chromebook from Lenovo. Announced back at CES 2016, Lenovo’s Chrome OS offering for this year looked pretty stellar.

ZTE ZMax Pro Review: A Mid-Range Phone at a Budget Price

A wise and famous YouTuber once said, “Good phones are getting cheap, and cheap phones are getting good.” And what better phone to fall into these categories than one of ZTE’s latest offerings. Called the ZMax Pro, this smartphone boasts unexpected specifications you’ll likely never find on a sub-$100 phone no matter where you go around the world other than one carrier (which I’ll get … Continue reading ZTE ZMax Pro Review: A Mid-Range Phone at a Budget Price

Moto Z Droid Edition Review

Here’s a million dollar question: “What makes a great smartphone?” Well, nowadays you obviously need good specs that don’t outperform each other, a good and sturdy build that’s not too thin and not too thick, nice software to work off of, and some unique features to make the phone stand out. Well, at least that’s my opinion… So since I’ve been testing Moto’s (now Lenovo’s) … Continue reading Moto Z Droid Edition Review
