The holidays are upon us and what better way to show the fitness fanatic in your life how much you really care than with a brand new fitness tracker? This year’s list of outstanding trackers was long. So much so, we couldn’t settle on just one. Instead, we’ve collected the five brands that were steps ahead of the pack.

Time really does fly—it’s been almost a year since I reviewed ZTE’s previous-generation flagship smartphone, the Axon Pro. While I’m no stranger to Android devices, that was my first hands-on experience with the brand, and I remember walking away being not only impressed with the device itself, but optimistic about the future of the smartphone market as a whole.

I will be honest. There’s nothing revolutionary happening in the world of smartphones. Don’t get me wrong: Since 2007, phones have improved tremendously in quite literally every metric.

In the second grade, my favorite book was Kenneth William Gatland’s 1979 Future Cities: Homes and Living into the 21st Century. The 32-page, lavishly illustrated anachronism brimmed with visions of a sparkling super-advanced future, and since it was 1997, I naïvely assumed that glass-domed moon bases, enormous spinning space colonies, and Star Trek-esque food synthesizers were only a handful of...

Today's smartphone market is as crowded as it's ever been. Every month we seem to get some new flagship or iteration, the next “next-generation” device. With so many phones, it’s hard to keep track of them all. You could even argue that when the biggest headline of the day is if a phone has a headphone jack or whether or not it explodes, we might've hit a saturation point. This is why ASUS is...

As technology goes, we live in a pretty wondrous time. Every month we seem to edge closer to a Star Trek-ian future, where the gizmos and gadgets of tomorrow occupy the hands and homes of today. Arguably, some of the best examples of this movement are our smartphones, which become more and more capable (and more indispensable) by the season. But there are side effects to living in such a...

After weeks of waiting and speculating, Google finally made good on its promise of something big coming out of California. And not just one—several big announcements that span a wide variety of new technologies.

Not long ago, mobile phones were judged by their sound quality. Nowadays, phones are judged by their image quality. “Can you hear me now?” has been replaced by “Your phone has how many lenses?” But while image quality continues to improve in quantum leaps, the lighting systems built into our mobile communication devices are “quaint,” at best. Your mobile device undoubtedly has a flash or LED...
