Review: Google Nexus 6P

image_from_url

It just works. It’s a line we mostly use to talk about Apple, but it’s really the story of the Nexus 6P. This is Google’s new flagship phone, one of two it made this year to show the world just how good Android can be. It’s the best hardware Google ...

Review: Microsoft Surface Book

For the last few years, PC manufacturers have devoted incredible engineering resources to giving their laptops gymnastic capabilities. Dell made a laptop whose screen could spin quickly inside its frame. Toshiba’s Satellite could fold flat and slide closed, as if slipping under a limbo pole. Lenovo made a whole line ...

Review: Kvart & Bølge SoundSommeliers

Generic black-or-brown speaker designs giving you the blues? The good folks at Kvart & Bølge may have an answer for you. Kvart & Bølge SoundSommeliers 8/10 Wired Great detail and tone. Champs in the mid-high frequencies. Driver design uses one unit to cover all the frequencies. Groovy visual design, and ...

When it comes to consumer-level drones, one model rules the skies. DJI’s Phantom drone, the Phantom 3 in particular, is the flying machine of choice for professional videographers, drone enthusiasts, and increasingly, mass-market consumers.

Review: 360fly Action Camera

1M9A5216-660x371

The 360fly is an action camera. You wouldn’t know it, since it looks less like a rectangular GoPro or barrel-shaped action camera and more like an oversized golf ball. That’s because it’s a different kind of action camera—in fact, a different kind of camera entirely. The 360fly’s lens is spherical, ...

Review: Google Chromecast

There’s this thing Netflix does after you’ve watched three episodes of something in a row. You might have seen it before. You’re just finally settled in, a you-shaped dent is forming in the couch, and a little message pops up: “Are you still watching? Press play if so.” Google Chromecast ...

Review: Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless

image_from_url

For a while, whenever a friend or coworker asked about a nice wireless sound system for the home, I would recommend the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air. “It’s the one that looks like a giant doobie,” I’d say. And thanks to the product’s prominent placement in Apple Stores, you really ...

Review: Silent Circle Blackphone 2

image_from_url

So, so many of the phones we review here at WIRED are boring. There’s really nothing special to tell you about most of them. We can talk about processors or fun camera tricks, but like the paintings of Thomas Kinkade, every phone is just a variation on a common theme. ...

Review: Apple iPhone 6s Plus

image_from_url

Everything that feels obvious now, once didn’t. This goes double for smartphones: All the pinch-to-zoom, touch-friendly interactions we now take for granted and marvel at a two-year-old’s ability to figure it out, didn’t always seem so natural. In 2007, when Apple released the first iPhone, everything about it seemed crazy. ...

Review: Apple iPhone 6s

image_from_url

There’s the old mantra: Wallet, keys, phone. Many of us have said it silently to ourselves every time we’ve stepped out for the past 15 or so years. These essential items helped us navigate the world, but we had to remind ourselves to grab them because they weren’t no-brainers like, ...
