OnePlus 6 rumor review: Design, specs, price, and everything we know so far

While OnePlus has outgrown its roots of aggressively-priced phones, it still offers an unbeatable value-for-money that easily surpasses the multiple security-related scandals which surround the company on a regular basis. With each and every year, OnePlus has become more and more capable and its products have recently really outdid themselves – save for a few issues and shortcomings in-between, OnePlus has been mostly killing it in the affordable super-flagship segment.

Take the OnePlus 5T, for example, a phone that employs all the signature OnePlus features like the mute switch, …

Jabra Elite 65t wireless earphones Review

Nearly a year ago, we reviewed the Jabra Elite Sport, the longtime wireless audio maker’s first venture into the true wireless space. You could say that they were ambitious with their approach, considering the earbuds attempted to appeal to both music and fitness enthusiasts. Unfortunately, it didn’t help either that the Elite Sport were slapped with a $250 price tag, making them one of the more expensive mainstream options at the time.

During CES 2018 early last month, Jabra introduced two new truly wireless headphones – the Jabra Elite 65t and the Elite Active …

Sony Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra Review


Looking at sales, Sony hasn’t been tremendously successful in the smartphone business, yet it’s one of the few major players to remain consistent with its devices, and this has to count for something. The Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra are two of the latest well-rounded, mid-range phones that Sony has in tow for the US market. Both come with the promises of long battery life and spectacular camera performance, and no less importantly, they’re among the first Xperia handsets to have functional fingerprint scanners on board – a feature that has been missing from US-bound Sony phones until now. But …

Two years later, we’re testing out Bragi’s latest product, the Dash Pro, which is an ambitious effort to deliver the most intelligent …

Anker Zolo Liberty+ wireless earphones Review


Truly wireless earphones are among the hottest tech gadgets right now. Some models – Apple’s Airpods come to mind – offer comfort and an excellent casual-listening experience; others, like the Jabra Elite Sport, focus on delivering function to the sports-minded among us, adding features like heart-rate sensors and activity tracking. Anker’s Zolo Liberty+ earphones land somewhere in the middle. Offering IPX5 water resistance and 3.5-hour battery life (with an additional 48 hours provided by charging case), the compact Zolo Liberty+ earphones seem to find quite a sweet spot, selling for $149.99. …
