Awair Glow review: This air monitor smartens your “dumb” appliances

Environmental monitoring is no longer a particularly novel smart-home trick. The ability to track indoor “vitals” like temperature, humidity, and air quality drives several standalone devices and is increasingly built into home security cameras like the LG Smart Security Wireless Camera. The problem is that while most of these monitors can accurately tell you when your indoor air is getting uncomfortable or even toxic, they can’t do anything to remedy it. That’s what makes the Awair Glow unique. It not…

LG V30 review: Another great LG phone that just isn’t great enough

When I first went hands on with the LG V30, I was sure I had found the phone of my dreams. But that was before the Galaxy Note 8 and Pixel 2 XL had made their debuts, and LG had just fed me a feast of specs: a Snapdragon 835 chip, 1440×2880 18:19 pOLED display, Quad DAC, and a 16MP camera with a f/1.6 lens.  Doug Duvall/IDG The LG V30’s fingerprint sensor is in the right spot. And there it…

PS4 Pro vs Xbox One X Comparison Review

Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro is out now, and is currently the most powerful games console on the market by some way.

Apple TV 4K review | TechRadar

UPDATED: Apple TV 4K will have one of its most annoying features fixed in tvOS 11.2. The update will allow videos to run in their native frame rates and video quality i.e. if content was produced in SDR at 24 fps, it will be displayed at that frame rate. Before now, all content was displayed in HDR at 60 fps regardless of how the original video was formatted – sometimes with horrible results. TL;DR: tvOS 11.2 should help  content look…

Amazon Echo (2nd generation) review: Better than the original, but not as important

The Amazon Echo, and the Alexa digital assistant that powered it, were breakthrough products that forever changed how we control our smart homes. The inexpensive Echo Dot that came later made it possible to put Alexa in every room of a home without spending a fortune. The second-generation Echo is better and less expensive than the first full-sized Echo, but it’s not nearly as important as those first three products. The new Echo is roughly 1/4 inch wider than the…

FIFA 18 vs PES 18: Which is better?

Manchester United vs Liverpool. Barcelona vs Real Madrid. Norwich vs Ipswich. FIFA vs Pro Evo. Football and rivalries go hand in hand and it’s no exception when it comes to video games. Pro Evo has been around since 2001, whereas the FIFA franchise dates back to 1993’s FIFA International Soccer in all its weird isometric glory. Nowadays there’s no doubt that FIFA sells more and makes more headlines, but is it actually better? Both games represent a solid year-on-year upgrade…

Dell XPS 15 9560 (2017) UHD review: Compact, solid and configurable Review

The latest incarnation of the Dell XPS 15 updates the model we reviewed early in 2016. It’s the bigger sibling of the XPS 13 that we rated very highly. There are some common elements such as the high-quality build and near edge-to-edge display that allows the 15.6-inch screen to be packed into a relatively compact chassis. In fact, Dell says this is the smallest 15.6-inch laptop around. The availability of UHD (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) screen resolution in some models…
