Review: Sony’s $350 WH-1000XM3 headphones live up to the hype

Article Contents In today’s $350 wireless, ANC-equipped over-ear headphones space, there are two primary competitors: Bose’s QuietComfort 35 II and Sony’s WH-1000XM3. Bose has long been championed as the king of the segment by many, but it seems impossible to talk about the QC35 II these days without someone butting in about how the identically-priced […]

Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless review: Top of the class

Article Contents German company Sennheiser has a sterling reputation for creating high-quality audio products, so I was understandably enthused when I learned they were making a pair of true wireless earbuds.

ASUS ROG Phone review: A few stumbles can’t stop this gaming-phone heavyweight

Mophie Powerstation USB-C 3XL: Lots of power for lots of money, but device compatibility is a deal-breaker

Article Contents It’s weird to think that there’s a high-end power accessory market, but there is. Mophie pretty much dominates it with just a few special characteristics: a slightly more premium build quality, better materials, and high-end specs. Of course, Mophie’s products also typically come with a sky-high price tag, and that’s the case here […]

George R.R. Martin’s ‘Nightflyers’ Is an Imaginative, Brutal Gorefest

Nightflyers, Syfy’s new series based on the 1984 novella by A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin, is freaky, bloody, and full of medieval weaponry. Right from the opening scene there’s a big, hairy axe murderer, and though he’s no Sandor Clegane, Game of Thrones fans will […]

Lenovo C330 review: The best ‘cheap’ Chromebook money can buy

Article Contents High-end Chromebooks have been attracting all the news recently, but it’s products like this, Lenovo’s C330, that bring the platform to its roots.

Article Contents Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro might take the company’s ultimate flagship title this generation, but the slightly lower-end Mate 20 is still a phone worth considering with its own strengths. It swaps a 1440p OLED display for a 1080p IPS panel, drops camera resolutions, and loses both the in-display fingerprint sensor and laser-based facial […]

The joys, disappointments, and sorrows of using MIUI on the Poco F1 (updated)

Article Contents We don’t often discuss Xiaomi’s software layer here on Android Police, but it isn’t for lack of desire to. Most of our team lives in the US where Xiaomi doesn’t officially operate and, even if we were to import units there, they wouldn’t be compatible with most carriers’ LTE bands. I’m based in […]

Review: Diablo III for Nintendo Switch is the best way to play this much-loved game

Blizzard games have staying power. They’re incredibly well crafted and designed to run on a wide spectrum of Windows PCs and Macs, both low powered and high. New content? They’re all over it. I can’t think of a single one of their titles that hasn’t received multiple updates, oft-times for free, in the past decade. […]
