HTC 10 review
HTC 10
Phone Reviews | Android Phone Reviews

There's nothing like a comeback story to warm the heart and even net you a new phone. After floundering for a few years, HTC's on their game again, and the HTC 10 is assuredly their best Android phone to date. Sure, it's easy to say that since most manufacturer's new models show improvement year over year, but in HTC's case with the HTC One M8 and One M9, this wasn't so much the case. That's all changed with the HTC 10-- it has a pleasing high resolution QHD display, a very good 12MP rear camera with much improved image processing and a refreshed design. This Android flagship has high res, 24 bit audio with a dedicated headphone amp, OIS on both front and rear cameras and it runs on the top dog Snapdragon 820 CPU. And yes, it has a microSD card slot too.


 
 
 
12" MacBook second generation review
12" MacBook (2016)
Ultrabook Reviews | Laptop Reviews

Another year, another Apple refresh. Given the first generation 12" MacBook's exciting but controversial release, some of you might have expected more than a refresh of internals--say a second USB-C port or a higher resolution webcam. Sorry, that didn't happen. Apple did their usual first cycle refresh: update to the latest Intel CPU and chipset, employ faster PCIe storage and for an unexpected treat they increased battery life by an hour. The price remains the same, starting at $1,299 for a decently equipped model with 8 gigs of RAM and a 256 gig SSD. If you own a first generation MacBook, you probably won't want to upgrade. But for those who've been considering this tiny notebook, the speed improvements and better battery life might just be enough to make you hit that buy button.


 
 
 
LG Gram 15 review
LG Gram 15
Ultrabook Reviews | Laptop Reviews

The LG Gram 15 is LG's lightest and biggest screen model, and also their newest. The Gram 15 weighs just 2.16 lbs. (0.98 Kg), which is half the weight of the Dell XPS 15 and HP Spectre x360 15t. It's clad in magnesium alloy and is finished in a gold color. The notebook is available with Intel Skylake 6th generation Core i5 and i7 CPUs and it has Intel HD 520 graphics, 8 gigs of RAM and an SSD. The LG Gram 15 has a bright 15.6" IPS 1920 x 1080 non-touch display, and is 0.66" (16.8mm) thin. The laptop has a surprisingly ample port selection, including 3 USB, full size HDMI and a USB-C port.


 
 
 
LG G5 review
LG G5
Phone Reviews | Android Phone Reviews

The LG G5 is LG's mainstream size flagship Android smartphone for 2016. The LG G5 has a 5.3" QHD IPS display, and it runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with LG's UI. This is LG's first metal bodied phone, and it's available in several colors. It runs on Qualcomm's fastest mobile CPU, the 1.6 GHz Snapdragon 820 and it has 4 gigs of RAM and 32 gigs of storage. As you'd expect from LG it has both a removable battery and a microSD card slot as well as an IR blaster. The phone has a very good 16MP rear camera plus a rear 8MP extreme wide angle camera. Its most innovative, though perhaps not most sucessful feature is the modular Friends that can add functionality.


 
 
 
iPhone SE review
iPhone SE
Phone Reviews | Apple iOS Product Reviews

This is Apple's best attempt at an affordable iPhone. It truly is much less expensive than the flagship iPhone 6s, but it has the same CPU, RAM and excellent rear camera as the more expensive model. The iPhone SE has the body of the iPhone 5s-- that Leica inspired one that's still my personal favorite iPhone design. It's available in 4 colors and it has a 4" Retina IPS display. Obviously, it's pretty pocket-friendly and it's also wallet friendly with a starting price of $399.


 
 
 
HP ZBook 15u G3 Review
HP ZBook 15u G3
Mobile Workstation Reviews | Laptop Reviews

What if you crossed a robustly built mobile workstation with an Ultrabook? HP's answer is the ZBook 15u G3, a 15.6" Ultrabook workstation that's relatively thin and light. The 4.2 lb. laptop has the rugged build and ample selection of ports we've come to expect from the ZBook line, but the internals are Ultrabook—Intel dual core i5 and i7 15 watt CPUs and low end AMD FirePro W4190M graphics. There are some nice performance amenities available like an optional fast PCIe NVMe SSD, two RAM slots fitted with DDR4 RAM up to 32 gigs and a trackpad with physical buttons. The price is considerably lower than the more desirable and powerful ZBook 15 Studio too.


 
 
 
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga review
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga
Ultrabook Reviews | 2-in-1 Laptop Reviews

Even if you're not a ThinkPad person who appreciates the unassuming but robust and well-made Lenovo matte black rectangles, you probably thought the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, now in it's third generation, was pretty darned fetching. It's sleek, slim and fits easily in any bag. Lenovo took the goodness that is the X1 Carbon and gave it their popular 360 degree hinges and a Wacom digital pen, and the ThinkPad X1 Yoga was born. The ThinkPad X1 Yoga runs on 6th generation Intel Skylake dual core, 15 watt core i5 and i7 CPUs with SSD drives, and your choice of 1920 x 1080 x QHD 2560 x 1440 IPS touch screens with pen input. An OLED QHD display will be available in April. It weighs just 2.8 lbs. and is extremely thin yet robust.


 
 
 
HP Spectre x360 15t review
HP Spectre x360 15"
Ultrabook Reviews | Laptop Reviews

If you really liked the very popular 13.3" HP Spectre x360 but want a larger display, HP heard you. Now there's a 15" model, and it's one of the few convertibles in this size. Like the smaller model, it works with HP's optional Active Stylus. It has the same stunning lines and combo of matte metal and polished edges that make it a premium product. The laptop-tablet-convertible is available with Intel Core i5 and i7 Skylake 6th generation CPUs, 8 or 16 gigs of RAM and an SSD drive. The Spectre is available with full HD and 4K IPS displays that support both touch and pen. It's every bit as thin as the 13" model and it weighs 4.1 pounds.


 
 
 
Samsung Notebook 9 review
Samsung Notebook 9
Ultrabook Reviews | Laptop Reviews

Samsung's got a strong winner here, or actually a pair since the Notebook 9 is available in 13.3" and 15" sizes. What if you could have a 13" Ultrabook that weighs just 1.9 pounds and is just half an inch thick, but didn't have to sacrifice build quality, performance or battery Life? That's the $999 Notebook 9 with an Intel Core i5 Skylake CPU, 8 gigs of RAM and a 256 gig SSD. No tiny screens, no single port to live with here-- the vivid and sharp full HD display is easy on the eyes and there are enough ports to use this as a main machine. We look at the 13" model in this review, but there's a 15" with Core i7 that weighs 2.9 lb. if bigger is your thing.


 
 
 
Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 260 review
Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 260
Ultrabook Reviews | 2-in-1 Laptop Reviews

The ThinkPad Yoga 260 is the update to the ThinkPad Yoga 12 with Intel Skylake 6th generation CPUs and the new Wacom AES pen technology that includes a rechargeable pen that lives in a silo in the laptop's side. The 12.5" Yoga weighs just 2.9 lbs. yet it's ThinkPad durable and handles life's daily bumps and thumps well. It's available with HD and full HD IPS displays that support both pen and touch, SSD drives and up to 16 gigs of DDR4 RAM. The 360 degree hinges and Lift and Lock keyboard allow for use in tablet, laptop, tent and presentation modes. If you love the ThinkPad X1 Yoga but find it too big a wallet stretch, the more affordable Yoga 260 might fit the bill.


 
 
 
Samsung Galaxy TabPro S Review
Samsung Galaxy TabPro S
Windows Tablet Reviews | Laptop Reviews

What if a 12" full Windows 10 tablet were as thin and light as an iPad and just about as good looking and chic? Wouldn't that turn the world on its ear? Sure the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is a well made and very good looking product, but it's thicker, heavier and not what we'd call impossibly slim. The 6.3mm (one quarter of an inch) Samsung Galaxy TabPro S may be long of name, but it's modest in proportions (again, for a Windows tablet) and light at 1.53 pounds (2.34 lbs. with included keyboard folio). It runs full Windows 10 64 bit on the Intel 6th generation Skylake Core m3 dual core CPU, which is the same CPU family used on the entry level $899 Surface Pro 4. It has a truly stunning 2160 x 1440 AMOLED display with wide color gamut, the deepest of blacks and good brightness. Throw in 4 gigs of RAM and a 128 gig SSD and you have a very captivating ultraportable.
