2022 iPhone SE 3 review: You know what you're getting

Apple's third-generation of iPhone SE is a very obvious performance-bump update, but the addition of 5G could make it one of the most attractive entry-points for potential switchers, and those who aren't fully spec-conscious. The iPhone SE sits in an important place in Apple's overall iPhone lineup as the cheapest new iPhone you can buy. Offering most of the benefits of the top-flight iPhone models, it scaled back all of its other features to be as good value to consumers as possible. The relatively low price of the iPhone SE compared to the high-end models makes it a great smartphone option for anyone without too much outlay. In its third iteration, the iPhone SE still appears at first glance to sit comfortably in the same spot in the catalog — albeit with a $30 price hike. Same classic appearance With the iPhone SE, you know what you're getting. This is because it relies on Appl

Apple iPad Air (2022) review: it’s the nice one

The new iPad Air is a blend of familiar features with predictable results Much of the new iPad Air from Apple is a known quantity. The design, screen, speakers, rear camera, and fingerprint scanner are all carried over from the 2020 model. The updated front-facing camera with Apple’s Center Stage feature can be found across the entire iPad line. It’s compatible with all the same cases, keyboard, and stylus accessories as before. And the M1 chip inside the new Air is lifted right from last year’s iPad Pro and the MacBook Air , MacBook Pro , Mac Mini , and iMac . What’s new is that you can get that combination of features in a tablet that starts at $599. That’s now the lowest price you can get access to Apple’s impressive M1 processor, undercutting even the value-driven (and screenless) Mac Mini. You also have the option of 5G for slightly faster-than-LTE cellular speeds. Oh, and there are a couple of new colors this time around, includi

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Plus review: A multitasking powerhouse

Near-perfect hardware and revamped multi-app software almost make up for the unoptimized apps. When we reviewed the Galaxy Tab S7+ in mid-2020, it arrived on the heels of years of Android tablet neglect by Google and most app developers. A perfect display, svelte design, and fast performance couldn't offset the fact that most Android apps on tablets simply spread out like gas in an empty box, not doing anything with the extra space to make using a Tab better than using a phone. With the Galaxy Tab S8+, Samsung brought back the last model's best features while improving on its weak points. Retaining the same design, display, and battery as before, the Tab S8+ added an upgraded processor, more base RAM, a wider selfie camera, and faster Wi-Fi connectivity. More importantly, Samsung took matters into its own hands with One UI 4, using the same software tools from its foldable phones to take better advantage of the 12.4 inches of display real estate.
