A cheap tablet with a massive screen but some big flaws – Honor Pad 8 review

Two-minute review The Honor Pad 8 breaks a fundamental law in the tablet world: despite having an ‘8’ in its name, it doesn’t have an 8-inch screen.

Privacy-focused web browsers are stuck in a rut, but why?

With hybrid working on the rise and data mismanagement continuing to make headlines, you’d be forgiven for thinking that even the most unsuspecting users would be interested in securing their online privacy. However, new data provided to TechRadar Pro by digital intelligence platform SimilarWeb indicates that the growth of veteran privacy-focused browsers Mozilla Firefox and Opera is stalling.

Hisense U8H (65U8H)

Hisense U8H: One-minute review Hisense battles with TCL, Vizio, and other budget TV makers for the attention of cost-conscious buyers, and with its new U8H series, the company has succeeded in stepping up its game to fully compete with those brands. The U8H series’ chief claim to fame is its mini-LED backlight, a feature first implemented in LCD TVs by rival TCL that was quickly adopted by Samsung, LG, and Sony in their own sets. A major benefit to mini-LED is high brightness – something the U8H series readily delivers.…

SteelSeries Arctis Nova 7 Wireless

SteelSeries Arctis Nova 7 Wireless: One-minute review If you’ve gotten a glimpse of the Steelseries Arctis Nova 7 Wireless, you’ll know that this is more than just the Arctis 7 with a fresh coat of paint.
