The original Motorola Z Play made a name for itself among users who champion smartphone battery life above all other features. It was not uncommon to hear of Moto Z Play users getting multiple days of power out of a single charge. In our review, Its battery life trounced every other phone we have ever tested by a wide margin. So, when the Moto Z2 Play was introduced last year, many lamented Motorola’s decision to slim the phone down and ultimately reduce battery capacity. While battery life was still exceptional, it fell far from eclipsing its processor. It is no surprise then that demands... Read more...

The Lenovo Smart display is the first in an assault of Google Assistant-enabled devices set to hit the market this year. They will take on Amazon's Echo Show in a battle for smart home assistant technology, with not only a set of ears, but also a set of eyes and a display face to complete the experience.

Way back in January at the Consumer Electronics Show, Lenovo announced its Smart Display family. The Smart Displays take the concept of the Google Home or Google Home Mini and add a touch screen into the mix.

Has Lenovo been trolling us all for the past month? Over the past few weeks Lenovo has peppered the internet with sketches and renders of the Lenovo Z5 that showed a "true" bezel-less design. In fact, Lenovo VP Chang Cheng promised a 95 percent screen-to-body ratio, which would far surpass anything else on the market. The actual end result is a bit more disappointing. Not only is the screen-to-body ratio lower at 90 percent, but the smartphone has both a display notch at the top and a chin at the bottom. Is Lenovo now dabbling in alternative facts? What we thought was going to be... Read more...
