Royole FlexPai Review: Hands-on

The Royole FlexPai is the first flexible phone, but it shows that we still have a long way to go before bending your phone becomes routine
Should I Buy The Royole FlexPai?
‘Fun but flawed’ is really the only sensible reaction to the FlexPai right now. The foldable display tech is genuinely impressive, but you can’t escape the feeling that it’s not quite there yet.
Laggy software, a plasticky finish, and worrying evidence of screen burn mean that right now the FlexPai feels like a sign of where phones are going - but proof that they’re not there just yet.

Boxee Cloud DVR Delivers Live TV and DVR for $99

Having an over-the-air antenna takes some of the sting out of dumping pay TV. However, a lot of those penny-pinchers are having a bigger problem saying goodbye to that beloved DVR. After all, having a DVR allows you to watch what you want whenever you want.

Last year, Channel Master introduced the Channel Master TV, which provides DVR service to OTA users. TiVo followed shortly after, with its TiVo Premiere HD DVR. We liked what both of these boxes had to offer (which you can see in our Channel Master TV Review and TiVo Premiere HD DVR Review). However, the problem with both boxes is that they weren't very cheap -- which is sort of the idea when you cut the cord to pay TV. Oh sure, either option could save you in the long run. However, the new Boxee Cloud DVR is designed to be cheap from the get-go.

Previously known as the Boxee TV, the new Boxee Cloud DVR is a mere $99 and is designed to work with your OTA antenna. The biggest perk is that initial cost. There are also a few interesting add-ons, but those will cost you.



Basic service is absolutely free, with a few restrictions. For instance, Basic users can find and record programs via free channel listings, but this option only allows for recordings to be stored for up to 90 days. That may work out well for your viewing needs, until you realize that you'll only get up to 5 hours of DVR playback each month.

If you're willing to pay $9.99 per month, the All-access service allows for unlimited DVR space, unlimited viewing, and the option to stream all of that content to anything with a web connection.That means that All-access users can tap into live and recorded TV from smartphones and/or tablets. It's going to be hard not to get hooked on that type of service, especially since each Boxee Cloud DVR comes with a free All-access trial.

To use the Boxee Cloud DVR, you'll need an HDTV, an HDMI cable and a broadband Internet connection. Once everything is hooked up, the box also provides access to a slew of popular apps, including Netflix, VUDU, YouTube, Pandora, and several others.

Boxee is currently selling the Boxee Cloud DVR, but says that Cloud DVR coverage is currently limited. At last peek, it was only available in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C.

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Apple iPad Pro 2018 vs Microsoft Surface Pro 6

Apple’s latest iPad Pros are a very tempting purchase, but should you stick with the tried-and-tested Surface Pro from Microsoft? We help you decide which tablet to buy.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 Or Apple iPad Pro 11in (2018)? Two very competent 2-in-1s, one running Windows 10, the other iOS 12. For many this difference alone will inform the final choice, but both are top-notch tablets.
