Samsung Galaxy S4 Review: Better, But Not Best (Update: LTE Version)


Since it arrived last year, the Galaxy S III has been the world's best-selling smartphone that wasn't born in Cupertino. An impressive feat, but one that—along with Samsung's Megatron-sized hype-machine—has made for sky-high expectations for the sequel. » 6/03/13 3:32pm 6/03/13 3:32pm

The Most Over-Engineered Flask Known To Man

Finding ways to stealthily transport alcohol has been a long-time obsession for man. We've used just about anything imaginable to do so, too, including fruit and animal bladders. Around the 18th century, though, we found a more refined and possibly more sanitary way to do so with the hip flask, which, at the time, was… » 4/11/13 3:20pm 4/11/13 3:20pm

Razer Edge Review: So Heavy, So Expensive, So Awesome

A gaming laptop in a tablet. It's a thought experiment that raises a whole host of questions: Is that even possible? Can it possibly be good? Would anyone even want it if it were? And finally: How much does it cost? The Razer Edge's answers translate roughly to "Yes!", "Sort of.", "Maybe?", and "Erm, you better sit down." » 3/28/13 11:00am 3/28/13 11:00am

Monoprice MHD Action Cam Review: Not Bad for $100

It has pretty much been settled that the way to go for a premium action-cam these days is the GoPro Hero3. But not everyone has that kind of cash to throw around. The Monoprice MHD offers a simple and cheap alternative for capturing your adventures. » 3/19/13 3:34pm 3/19/13 3:34pm

Behold the Ugliest Shoe of All Time


The Air Jordan XX8 (just got 'em in today). Pimped by the mighty Spike Lee. Inspired by James Bond. Bolstered with carbon fiber plates: a purple eyescar sheathed in some kind of snakeskin-meets-moonscape-meets-pixelcamo footcondom. This has gotta be the ugliest shoe ever made. Amirite? » 2/27/13 5:33pm 2/27/13 5:33pm

BlackBerry Z10 Review: Not Good Enough

Everybody knows what's at stake for BlackBerry. The Z10 is its shot to stop its considerable bleeding and shut everyone up. But launching a brand new OS with brand new hardware isn't easy. And it's even harder to match expectations when both have been delayed again and again. » 2/18/13 11:00am 2/18/13 11:00am

Remington Black Diamond 5800 Lightning Review: A Spartan Shave at a…

Sure, shaving accessories like self-cleaning stands, high-RPM heads, and gaggles of trimmer attachments are cool and all, but not everybody needs or wants all that. For anyone that's just looking for a solid shave without a bunch of bells and whistles, check out the Remington F5800. » 2/11/13 3:33pm 2/11/13 3:33pm

Activate the Gizmodoscope!

You've seen hints of it over the past couple months: a photograph here and there on Gizmodo that you could click and spin and almost play with. These are the work of the Gizmodoscope, an interactive imaging system that we've spent the past year developing to make the most badass pictures on the Internet. And CES is the … » 1/08/13 5:45pm 1/08/13 5:45pm

Canon Powershot N Hands On: What a Cute Little Thing

We spent a short time with the new Canon Powershot N and found that even though the square body makes it a little awkward to use, it's pretty fun at the same time. As a full-time camera, the cute gimmicky form factor is limiting. But as a little secondary camera? A blast. » 1/07/13 11:59pm 1/07/13 11:59pm

Fitbit Flex Hands On: The King's Reign Might Be Over

We just got a few minutes with Fitbit's new Flex activity tracker. From the look of it, they've basically just reengineered the One, made it smaller, taken out the altimeter and shoved it into a wristband. Double tap the band and a stream of five tiny LEDs notify you of how many goals you've reached for the day. So if … » 1/07/13 10:19pm 1/07/13 10:19pm

Sony NEX-6 Review: A Sweet Spot in a Sea of Mirrorless Cameras

Sony seems content with rolling out endless variations on its popular line of mirrorless cameras. The final one for 2012, the NEX-6, fills out the pricier end between the NEX-5R and the NEX-7, but can it find a foothold to thrive among so many siblings? » 12/10/12 3:55pm 12/10/12 3:55pm
