HDR10 video plays without a problem, and some of the stunning movies look even better when you zoom in so it fills the whole of the screen, which at the same time brings the cascading edge into play. The audio is good too, with a single speaker on the bottom of the phone, plus audio from the speaker used for voice calls at the top of the screen. There’s plenty of volume and a decent amount of bass, but also a degree of vibration through the body of the phone. Overall, the Edge is an excellent media smartphone. … [Read more...] about Motorola Edge review: Stunning display, good price

The Inspiron 14 5000 is also pretty chunky, at 0.83 inches thick and weighing 3.63 pounds. Those measurements are pretty close to the Flex 5 14’s 0.82 inches and 3.3 pounds. However, the Flex 5 14 always felt like it had the build quality to justify the extra bulk. The Inspiron 14 5000, on the other hand, just feels like an old-school budget laptop that’s too large just because the engineering dollars weren’t spent to slim it down. … [Read more...] about Dell Inspiron 14 5000 review: Too cheap for its own good?
The Signa S3 does have three sound modes to help customize your audio: Movie Mode “enhances audio reproduction in TV and movies,” according to Polk; Night Mode dampens bass and dynamic sounds to keep the neighbors at bay; and Music Mode is, well, meant for music.

It’s helpful, but not as helpful as a dedicated center channel would be. … [Read more...] about Polk Audio Signa S3 review: A good bar lost among great competition

The Yoga C640 isn’t the smallest 13-inch laptop around. To begin with, the bezels aren’t huge, but they’re not as small as you’ll find on the Spectre x360 13 or the Dell XPS 13. That makes the chassis a bit larger than those of very tiny 13-inch laptops. The Yoga C640 is quite thin, though. It measures 0.67 inches thick, which is identical to the Spectre x360 and only slightly thicker than the XPS 13. The Yoga C640 weighs 2.98 pounds compared to the HP at 2.88 pounds and the Dell at 2.8 pounds. It compares well in portability to these high-end laptops, despite being much cheaper. … [Read more...] about Lenovo Yoga C640 review: The ultimate laptop for students?
