Following the lead of the Nexus 7, most Android tablet makers have chased after the lower end of the market, ceding the $499 price band to the iPad Air. With the 10-inch Galaxy Tab S, Samsung has turned its guns squarely at Apple's flagship and has done so successfully. The Android 4.4-based Galaxy Tab 2 boasts a 2560 x 1600 adaptive display which automatically adjusts color gamut based on the application... View Reviews »

In the perennial game of smartphone one-upmanship, modest refinements often take a back seat to headline-grabbing specs. And so it's no surprise to see LG boasting that its newest Android flagship, the G3, features a 5.5-inch display that packs two times as many pixels as an HDTV (2560 x 1440 of them, to be exact). That's right -- the 50-inch TV set on your wall has fewer pixels than a phone you could... View Reviews »

It's a childhood mantra of encouragement and one that Microsoft has taken to heart in its quest to build a true hybrid computing experience in its Surface line. Now on its third generation, Microsoft has enlarged the screen, improved the ergonomics of the keyboard and slimmed down the weight in an effort to create a true tablet/laptop hybrid that could banish...

With the Streaming Stick, Roku has taken its widely-praised set-top box and shrunk it down to dongle dimensions so that anyone with a free HDMI port on their HDTV can get in on the "smart TV" action. The $50 Streaming Stick competes with products like Google's Chromecast ($39) and full-featured boxes like the Apple TV and Roku's own Roku 3 media player. Unlike the Chromecast, the Streaming Stick offers a... View Reviews »

Being the underdog has not deterred Sony from continuing to enhance its Android tablet lineup. If its latest effort, the Xperia Z2, is anything to go by, it seems like Sony has found a winning formula. It starts with a design that combines waterproofing (up to three feet deep for 30 minutes) with an ultra-thin body that's just 6.4mm thick making it thinner and lighter (at 15.5oz) than the iPad Air. It... View Reviews »

Amazon's Fire TV is the e-commerce giant's bid for a slice of living room real estate. The streaming set-top box seeks to differentiate itself from a crowded field with voice-activated search and the ability to play video games, in addition to accessing the usual array of streaming content choices (Amazon Prime, Netflix, YouTube, etc. but no HBO Go). The box itself boasts a quad-core processor, 2GB of... View Reviews »

Samsung's newest flagship marks something of an about-face for the company. Whereas last year's Galaxy S4 was jammed with Samsung software, this year's S5 pares back on the bloatware -- at least a bit. The S5 boasts a 5.1-inch 1920 x 1080 HD Super AMOLED display, a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory (though not all of it's free for personal storage -- there is an microSD...

HTC produced one of, if not the most highly-regarded Android phone of 2013 in the One. This year, they've followed it up with One M8, a phone that not only has to win over the critics but enough consumers to save HTC, whose finances are reeling. The One M8 sports a mostly aluminum body that's as thick as the previous One but slightly wider, heavier and longer. It boasts a 5-inch, 1080p display, a 2.3GHz... View Reviews »

Google's Chrome OS is proving to be a popular sell among notebook buyers and Asus is hoping some of that mojo can rub off on the desktop market as well. The Chromebox is a super-cheap ($179) desktop PC offering a 1.4GHz Intel Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM and a 16GB SSD drive. There's also built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, an SD card reader, plus four USB 3.0 ports, and an HDMI output. All housed in a slim box... View Reviews »
