Moto X (2014) Review: Still The Android Phone For Everyone

The original Moto X, which debuted last year, was a different breed of smartphone. Rather than trying to build a beast with the best screen and the most horsepower, Motorola focused on the user experience above all else. The result was a phone that was so intelligent and comfortable to use that it almost didn’t matter that it was out-gunned in a lot of ways. Well, the 2014 model is here. Not only does it retain that same sublime user experience, it comes out guns blazing.


Moto 360 Smartwatch Review: The Best Might Not Be Enough

Early this year when Google first announced Android Wear, it teased us with the Moto 360. It was by far the best-looking smartwatch we’d ever seen. Many months later it’s here at last. It’s the best Android Wear device yet, but with the Apple Watch looming on the horizon, it’s no longer clear if that’s good enough.


Moto X 2014 Hands-On: Better, Smarter, Bigger

Here at last! The Moto X was one of our favourite phones from last year, and now the sequel is here. It’s called… the Moto X. Guess the X+1 thing was just a codename. Labels aside, we’ve spent a good half day with the new Moto X, and so far it lives up to the lofty promise of its name.


Moto G 2014 Hands-On: Bigger Bang For The Same Buck

Guess what Motorola’s top-selling phone of all time is? Nope, it’s not the Razr, it’s last year’s Moto G. For 180 bucks off-contract and unlocked, it was a hell of a lot of phone. Well, the 2014 model is here, and it’s bigger and better, and it costs just the same.


Amazon Fire Phone: An All-Seeing 3D Prime Contender

We’ve been hearing the rumours for weeks (months? years?), and the day has finally come. Amazon’s phone is here. It’s called the Fire Phone, and it’s got some fancy new tricks.


The Best Action Camera: Q2 2014 Edition

You can’t just do something dangerous and insane these days without filming it for posterity. And while action cameras let us relieve these life-highlights over and over, they aren’t all created equal. We decided to see for ourselves which one could handle your extreme adventures best.


Moto G Review: The Best Cheap Phone, But Still A Cheap Phone

Cheap smartphones — we mean really cheap, off-contract smartphones — are terrible. They’re tormented by horrid, pixilated screens, they’re slower than your grandma, and they feel like they’re held together by Scotch tape. The $249 Moto G is none of those things. It definitely has significant shortcomings, but put simply, you can’t get a better cheap phone.


Sony Xperia Z1S: This Thing Could Be Really, Really Good

In what is certainly the most enticing phone we’ve seen at CES thus far, Sony’s Xperia Z1S is here, and it looks like an absolute powerhouse (as does its little buddy, for those who like smaller phones). Where to begin?


Nexus 5 Review: The Best Android Can Offer (Especially For The Price)

This year, after having leaked more than a shot-up sieve, the long-awaited Nexus 5 is here with Android 4.4 (KitKat) in tow. It’s most definitely one of the best phones you can buy, even if it doesn’t quite meet its inflated expectations.


Galaxy Gear Smartwatch Review: A Pain In The Wrist

The Galaxy Gear wants desperately to be the vanguard of a new era of wearable computers. But while it promises more than the rest of the pack, if anything it makes absolutely clear that the future’s still a long ways off.
