iPhone 11 Pro in Pocket

iPhone 11 Pro review: The best camera on the best phone

The iPhone 11 Pro is the best phone money can buy right now. A beefier battery and new triple-camera system with Night mode set the bar for smartphone cameras, and help put the 11 Pro at the top of the pack. But Google's Pixel 4 is right around the corner, and it could steal the camera throne back.

Apple iPhone 11 review: The iPhone for all

The iPhone 11 succeeds the iPhone XR, yet it's even more affordable at $699. Is it worth saving $300 by going for it over the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max? For most people, yes. The upgrades include a second ultra-wide-angle lens, Night mode for the camera, and slightly better battery life.
google pixel 3a review hands on feat

Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL review

The Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are Google’s latest phones, and their key selling point is that they bring the same exact software and camera experience from the Pixel 3 and 3 XL to a much lower price point -- $399 and $479, respectively. You also get great performance and battery life.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 Plus Review: Renaissance Phone

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 Plus is here, and it’s the biggest and best Samsung phone ever. Its key feature is its looks, as it has an attractive rear design, highlighted by the new Aura Glow color, but little else has changed. Read our Note 10 Plus review for our in-depth thoughts on Samsung's latest.

iPhone 11 Pro Max review: Turning everything up to max

The iPhone 11 Pro Max is for big-screen enthusiasts, but it's also undeniably the best smartphone you can buy at the moment. It excels at almost everything, from incredible battery life and a fantastic screen to powerful performance and class-leading cameras. This is the iPhone to splurge on.
samsung galaxy a50 review 14

Samsung Galaxy A50 review: Value flagship

The Samsung Galaxy A50 has a beefy battery, a big screen, a slick software experience, and solid performance. At just $350, it’s an exceptional phone -- but it faces stiff competition from the likes of Google’s Pixel 3a. Here’s our Galaxy A50 review.
Light Phone 2

Light Phone 2 review: Not the cure for smartphone addiction

Is your smartphone use out of control? Looking for a break? The Light Phone 2 is a basic phone that promises exactly that. Its 4G connectivity means you can place calls and send texts, and you can also set an alarm. More tools like ridesharing apps are on the way, but all of this comes at a high price.

Samsung Galaxy Fold review: Wait for the next generation

Samsung's Galaxy Fold is the company's first foldable smartphone. It boasts two screens, six cameras, and a dual-cell battery. The phone was delayed due to display issues, but Samsung has fixed all its problems, and it's now available. Here's what it's like to use a foldable smartphone.
galaxy s10 plus review feat

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus review: The details matter

Samsung’s Galaxy S10 Plus has anything and everything you’d want in a smartphone. From a gorgeous HDR10+ screen that you can’t stop looking at, to an in-display fingerprint sensor that actually works, it’s awesome. But is it worth $1,000? Read our full Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus review to find out.
samsung galaxy s10e

Samsung Galaxy S10e review

Samsung’s Galaxy S10e is meant to be the attractive and affordable phone compared to the rest of the S10 and S10 Plus lineup.
LG G8X ThinQ

LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen review

Don't call the LG G8X ThinQ a folding smartphone. It's not one of those mega-expensive devices, and it actually has three screens and not two. What is it, then? It's a quirky device for serious multi-tasking. However, like folding smartphones, you're going to have to make some compromises.
oneplus 7t review back

OnePlus 7T review: Simple, excellent, and no messing around

The OnePlus 7T doesn't want any drama. It's simple in the best way -- it does everything you want it to, without making life complicated. The screen imports the OnePlus 7 Pro's excellent 90Hz refresh rate, the camera is capable, and the battery charges in an incredibly short period of time. Here's our review.
google pixel 4 review pocket

Google Pixel 4 review: Smooth, but lacking stamina

The Google Pixel 4 is a slick, smooth, charmer of a smartphone, but it may run out of steam before you do. In this Pixel 4 review, you'll find a deep dive into the new software tricks, air gestures, and the wonderful camera, but there are flaws here in the design and the battery life.
Nokia 7.2

Nokia 7.2 review: Nokia aims high but misses the mark

HMD Global's latest phone in the U.S. is the Nokia 7.2, and not only does it look sophisticated, but it also has some killer camera specs. There's a 48-megapixel camera, along with a wide-angle and depth-sensing lens. But can it dethrone the Google Pixel 3a, which remains the best camera on a phone under $400?
Sony Xperia 1 review

Sony Xperia 1 review: One for the fans

Sony’s Xperia 1 smartphone is svelte, tall, modern, and powerful. The 21:9 aspect ratio means you get a cinematic viewing experience. It’s too bad there are several other shortcomings, such as a lackluster camera, unimpressive battery life, and far too high of a price tag. Here’s our Xperia 1 review.
OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition

OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition hands-on review: A looker

Sure to become the most desirable, and certainly the rarest, of all the new OnePlus 7T series phones, the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition has a key design feature that's unexpected to say the least. It makes this high performance phone standout, and even more of a conversation piece than expected.
OnePlus 7T Pro

OnePlus 7T Pro review: A real beauty, inside and out

Sleeker, more stylish, and with some tempting tech upgrades, the OnePlus 7T Pro is everything the OnePlus 7T is and then a little bit more. There's a slightly bigger battery inside along with 3x optical zoom in the camera. But is that enough to recommend you pay more for it?
Motorola One Zoom cameras

Motorola One Zoom review: Four times the photography fun

With an incredibly versatile quad-lens camera, stamina for days, and a snazzy purple finish, the Motorola One Zoom is a midrange marvel at $450. But there has to be a compromise somewhere, right? Find out how well it performs in the wild as I put it through its paces in this Motorola One Zoom review.
Asus ROG Phone 2

Asus ROG Phone 2 review: The power to change your game

Asus is on a roll in 2019, having started out with the Zenfone 6 -- a welcome surprise and a great phone -- and now the ROG Phone 2. This gaming smartphone is a performance powerhouse, from the processor to the battery, and the stunning screen is a joy.
huawei mate 30 pro review pocket

Huawei Mate 30 Pro hands-on review: Tempting and talented, but sadly stifled

The Huawei Mate 30 Pro is what we've come to expect from Huawei, a highly capable camera-orientated smartphone with a stunning screen and some interesting (and sometimes unsuccessful) additional features. But this time it doesn't have Google apps or services. How has this affected the phone?

Huawei Mate X hands-on review: The future in our hands

Want to see into the future? Here it is: The Huawei Mate X. Despite a longer than expected wait for its final arrival, it's almost ready to go on sale, and it's still as exciting as before. The frightening price tag hasn't changed, and there are new concerns over the software, but we still want one.
Moto Z3 review

Moto Z3 review

Motorola’s flagship smartphone of 2018 looks exactly like its mid-range smartphone of 2018, and it’s powered by a processor from 2017. It may sound odd, but this $480 Verizon-exclusive device is a strong performer, and will be the first upgradable 5G smartphone next year.
sony xperia 5 review red

Sony Xperia 5 hands-on review: Compact, colorful, but not quite a winner

Is Sony's Xperia 5 a true successor to the much-loved and now mostly deceased Compact series of Sony phones that packed winning specs into a smaller, more easy to handle body? Almost. It certainly wins on the design, style, colors, and size; but there are concerns over the camera and a true reason to buy.
ZTE Axon 10 Pro rear

ZTE Axon 10 Pro review: Great performance for $549

The ZTE Axon 10 Pro is the Chinese company's first flagship phone to make it to the U.S. in two years, after the U.S. ban that lifted in 2018. It doesn't support 5G, but it does bring killer specifications at an affordable $549 price point, giving OnePlus and the OnePlus 7 Pro a run for its money.
samsung galaxy note 10 review design 2

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Review: The Note for everyone else

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 is one of two phones launched at Unpacked 2019, alongside the Note 10 Plus. Of the two, this one is smaller, has only one storage option (and no MicroSD slot), as well as a smaller battery. But it’s still has a lot going for it, including its beautiful sleek design.
Motorola One Action-Hands-O

Motorola One Action hands-on review

Motorola’s latest phone is called the Motorola One Action, and it wants to end vertical videos once and for all. The unique action camera lets you film in portrait orientation, but you still get landscape video footage. Sadly, in the U.S. this phone won’t be a part of the Android One program.
Huawei Mate 20 X 5G

Huawei Mate 20 X 5G hands-on review

The Mate 20 X 5G is Huawei’s first mainstream 5G endeavour, and it hasn’t been subtle, as this is a super-sized, super-fast phone that is more tablet than phablet. However, the great design means it’s never ungainly, and the 5G speeds it can achieve are what we want from the next generation mobile network.
moto e6 review 7

Moto E6 hands-on review

Motorola’s latest is the Moto E6, its most affordable phone this year, and a follow-up to the Moto E5 series from 2018. The Moto E6 is unremarkable. It doesn’t have many features worth talking about. Why? Motorola says it focused on improving the fundamentals.
Oppo Reno 10x Zoom review

Oppo Reno 10x Zoom review

The Oppo Reno 10x Zoom has a special camera that’s capable enough to take a great photo in just about any situation or lighting conditions. It’s a great reason to look closely at the Reno 10x Zoom, but what about the rest of the package? On the plus side the battery lasts a long time, but the software? That’s a downside. Here’s our review.
black shark 2 review full 5

Black Shark 2 review

With the incredibly powerful Snapdragon 855 and a unique gamer-focused design, the Black Shark 2 has the power to demolish games and looks good while doing it. But its predecessor was tripped up by some buggy software that made it hard to recommend. Can the Black Shark 2 overcome those flaws?
LG V50 ThinQ 5G review

LG V50 ThinQ 5G review

If a phone supports 5G, that doesn’t mean you should buy it. The first wave of 5G phones are here, including the LG V50 ThinQ; it’s a strong phone in almost every area, but it’s too overpriced for the features it offers. Battery life is also a concern on 4G LTE. Here’s our review.
Motorola One Vision Review

Motorola One Vision review

If Motorola’s mission with the One Vision was to make a dependable, capable smartphone at a price that’s affordable, then it’s definitely mission accomplished. The Motorola One Vision delivers a Pixel 3a-type of experience, for less money, and who isn’t tempted by that?

Asus ZenFone 6 review

Asus is embracing the 2019 trend of not following any trends at all and instead going in its own direction. The ZenFone 6 has a motorized flip-around camera, a 5,000mAh battery, and an almost Google Pixel-like version of Android installed. We’ve been using the phone, and here's our review.
Honor 20 Pro

Honor 20 Pro hands-on review

Where does Honor go after the Honor View 20, the best device it has made? The answer is the Honor 20 Pro, which takes what made the View 20 great, and then gets better by adding more cameras, and shrinking the size. It’s priced well, but questions linger on whether it’s a worthwhile purchase due to the U.S.’ relationship with Huawei.
