ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe
After a string of successful entry and mid-range smartphones, ASUS is setting its sights higher with the ZenFone 3 Deluxe, a $998 premium smartphone that ASUS believes can challenge the likes of Apple and Samsung.
While the regular ZenFone 3 is a mix of metal and glass, the ZenFone 3 Deluxe is all metal, with a sleek unibody design that comes in either Shimmer Gold or Glacier Silver (Titanium Gray is not available locally). Like other ZenFones, the Deluxe has a slightly curved profile, which makes it comfortable to hold. At first glance, the design looks quite similar to many other Android phablets out there, such as Huawei’s Mate 9, but upon closer inspection you’ll notice it’s actually unique because it has no visible antenna bands on the back of the device. If you look closely, you’ll spot three breaks in the front bezel where the antenna peeks out, suggesting that ASUS has managed to build the antenna into the frame of the device. Obviously, if you put your phone in a case, you won’t be able to appreciate this, but it’s a nice feat of engineering nevertheless.

Google I/O 2021
Google’s annual developer conference around everything the company does.

XIAOMI MI 11 - THE AFFORDABLE FLAGSHIP
The Xiaomi Mi 11 has all the core features of what Xiaomi wants to offer in a 2021 flagship, without some of its over-the-top features from the Mi 11 Ultra. For instance, Mi 11 doesn’t have the secondary AMOLED display, multi-point direct ToF laser focusing, or IP-rated water resistance, all of which is available on the Mi 11 Ultra.

Apple 12.9-Inch iPad Pro (2021) - Ridiculously Powerful
M1 was Apple’s first custom processor, and never in my years of writing about notebooks have I seen a processor that’s so powerful and efficient. In my review, I said it rewrote the notebook rulebook. So what did Apple do next? Naturally, it took the M1 chip and put it in the iPad Pro.
No Rest For The Wicked
With not one, not two, but three Diablo games in the pipeline and well on their way to release, I don’t think I can stress this enough: it’s a fantastic time to be a fan of Blizzard’s beloved dungeon-crawler franchise. On our end, we’ve already thrown a few punches at both Immortal and D2R’s Technical Alpha sessions, and so far, we’re quite satisfied with what they’ve got on the menu.
