Fitbit Charge 3 review:

Fitbit Charge 3 review:

I was at my dentist the other day, repairing a broken crown. I was wearing an Apple Watch ($469 at Amazon Marketplace) on one wrist, and the Fitbit Charge 3 ($150 at Amazon) on the other. The dental assistant smiled and showed me her arm. She was wearing a Fitbit and Apple Watch, too. I…

Hitman 2: The Kotaku Review

Hitman 2: The Kotaku Review

Hitman series protagonist Agent 47 isn’t an interesting guy. Despite his gleaming, barcoded head, he disappears into a crowd. He can somehow pass for anyone, no matter how famous; he can seamlessly live their life and look great in their pants. He uses this ability to wreak havoc everywhere he goes. Hitman 2 investigates this,…

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro hands-on review

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro hands-on review

What better way for Xiaomi to announce its entrance into the U.K. than with the Mi 8 Pro, a great-looking smartphone with powerful specifications. This is no half-hearted entrance. The Chinese company also has a wide variety of other devices and connected products it will sell online, as well as in a flagship store located at…

Video Game Review: ‘Hitman 2’

Video Game Review: ‘Hitman 2’

But in a remarkable display of good will and good…

Facebook Portal+ review

Facebook Portal+ review

The first commercially available product from Building 8 isn’t as instantly iconic a piece of hardware as Snap’s Spectacles. In fact, at first glance, the device seems like little more than an Echo Show/Google…

Intel Xeon E Six-Core Review: E-2186G, E-2176G, E-2146G, and E-2136 Tested

Despite having officially launched back in July, Intel’s Xeon E desktop platform has yet to see the light of day in systems casually available to users or small businesses. This should change today, with the official embargo lift for reviews on the parts, as well as the announcement today that SGX-enabled versions are coming for…

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K review: hold the remote

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K review: hold the remote

When shoppers look for a streaming player this holiday season, they’ll likely be choosing between Amazon’s new Fire TV Stick 4K and the Roku Premiere I reviewed earlier this month. Both are right near the $50 mark and the most affordable 4K HDR devices you can get (assuming your TV’s built-in apps aren’t already good…
