There's a new BMW-branded phone with a huge vapor cooling chamber that no one asked for

Depending on where you live in the world, you may or may not have heard of Vivo's sub-brand iQOO. The company is focused on making performance-driven phones and has unveiled two new ones for global markets — the iQOO 7 and the BMW-branded iQOO 7 Legend. They both offer top-end chipsets at jaw-droppingly low prices.

Google's ads for this year's Oscars had more emotion than half the nominees

After a string of increasingly weird videos promoting the Pixel phone line, it's almost comforting to see Google return to plucking at your heartstrings. Such is the case with two new Google Search commercials posted to Google's official YouTube channel this weekend, both made for the recent Oscars, and at least one of which aired during the event.

Registration is open for early access to The Witcher mobile game

It's been eight months since CD Projekt announced that it's working on an augmented reality mobile game set in its beloved Witcher franchise. Think Pokemon Go, only with a lot more swearing and murder. The developers say that the game will hit Android in an early access soft launch this summer, and you can apply to be a beta tester now.

Review: The Realme 8 5G shows us the real cost of 5G

Review: The Realme 8 5G shows us the real cost of 5G

We’ve all seen examples of insane 5G download speeds, and maybe that makes you want 5G in your next phone, but the reality on the ground is different. As it currently stands, 5G is far from ubiquitous — it doesn't even exist in markets like India — and the compromises and costs associated with it are substantial. It's still fair to want 5G from a flagship phone if you plan to use it for a few years, but the equation changes when we talk about the budget segment where the compromises caused by 5G are more noticeable. The Realme 8 5G is the perfect example of that.

This Google Pixel video is even stranger than it first appears

This Google Pixel video is even stranger than it first appears

No one can fault the video team in charge of advertising for the Pixel for having a bit of fun. After all, if standard ads haven't pushed adoption rates through the roof, you might as well aim for novelty. Previously in the "Switch to Pixel" campaign, Google showed potential Pixel buyers how easy it is to switch from a banana while also learning karate. This week, we're learning Korean slang. And yes, the banana makes its triumphant return.

RedMagic's new Watch is a lot like the OnePlus Watch, only $60 less

RedMagic has a new smart watch for you to check out, and surprisingly, it has nothing to do with eSports: it's more focused on actual sports and fitness. It uses a round OLED display, a super-long battery life, has a low price, and it eschewed Wear OS or any other established platform... Wait a second, didn't we just do this one? I feel like we just did this one.

I got into the Diablo Immortal closed alpha — here's an hour of gameplay

I got into the Diablo Immortal closed alpha — here's an hour of gameplay

Earlier this week Diablo Immortal entered into a closed alpha test in Australia, and I've managed to gain access to this alpha and so I've recorded an hour-long gameplay video at 1080p/60FPS so everyone can see how it currently plays. This video shows off all of the selectable characters, the game's settings, and offers plenty of gameplay as the Crusader. While Blizzard is adamant that Diablo Immortal is still a work in progress, since the current alpha is limited to Australia I figured those around the rest of the world might want to see how development is moving forward.

Someone called the cops on their own smart vacuum

Someone called the cops on their own smart vacuum

Robot vacuums are, let's say, a net positive in most people's households — they do all the moving around to scrub the floors clean, you just have to step out of the way. But one robovac is responsible for scaring a woman out of her wits and a busted door in one California household.
