OnePlus has slowly but surely moved into the upper tier of the price spectrum with its phones. But the saturated high-end market led the company to take another look at the budget segment last year with its entry-level Nord phones and its recent venture into the cheap TWE space. Now, OnePlus is entering the burgeoning fitness tracker market with its own cheap option.
V-Moda's unique design aesthetic makes its headphones among the most striking on the market. Hot on the heels of revealing its new visual identity, the audio brand took to CES 2021 to announce its first pair of wireless headphones with active noise cancellation: the M-200 ANC.
Roborock has produced more than a few popular smart robot vacuums, like the Roborock S6 we gave an 8/10 in our review last year. CES is always full of new IoT products, and sure enough, Roborock is taking the (virtual) stage to reveal its new flagship vacuum: the Roborock S7.

At one end of the spectrum, we have companies such as Sony and LG that launch a handful of phones and call it a year. Then there's Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi that launches so many phones that's it's hard to keep track. Adding to its selection is the newly-launched Redmi Note 9T 5G that — as the name suggests — gives you access to 5G networks without breaking the bank.
The original Moto G pioneered the mid-range phone space, and subsequent released have offered at least respectable value. After a few stumbles, we quite liked last year's Moto G Power and G Stylus. A new generation of budget Moto phones launch this very month, and three of them are Moto G phones. There are new, more powerful versions of the G Power and G Stylus, as well as a G Play priced at just $170. If you want to step up from the G, Motorola also has the new Motorola One 5G Ace, which is its cheapest 5G phone yet at $400.
Setting up new smart home devices is always a hassle, which you might have noticed following the holidays and presents under the tree. You have to look through a list of Assistant actions during setup and select the appropriate one, which is just one part of the multi-step pairing process.

Google TV is the latest iteration of Google's smart TV software, having made its debut on the latest Chromecast a few months back. Sony's new Bravia XR TVs are among the first to arrive with Google TV built-in, and they have some other noteworthy features as well.
