Zotac MEK1 Gaming PC

Zotac has been in the market for years with its mini-PCs, but this year the company is making a surprising shift into the gaming side of things with the MEK1 Gaming PC. It’s got Zotac’s signature compact style to it, and certainly wouldn’t look out of place as a living room PC.

OnePlus 6 India review: Notching up another win

The OnePlus 6 is a fabulous phone once you look past the notch.

The OnePlus 6 is the most anticipated phone of 2018 in India, and for good reason. OnePlus' aggressive strategy paid dividends for the brand in recent quarters, and the company has a firm foothold in the mid-range segment.

One reason for OnePlus' popularity in India is because of the fact that the brand maintains price parity with its U.S. counterpart. The 64GB version of the OnePlus 6 retails for ₹34,999, which comes out to $515, or $15 less than what the phone is available for in the U.S. That was the case last year as well, wherein OnePlus launched the 5T at the same ₹32,999 ($485) price point as the OnePlus 5.

To put things into context, the Galaxy S9+ launched in India for ₹64,900 ($1,015), or $175 more than what it costs in the U.S. Similarly, the Pixel 2 XL made its debut in the country at ₹73,900 ($1,120), a full $270 more than what it retails for in the U.S.

Compare that to what the OnePlus 6 costs and you begin to understand why the brand has such a fervent following in India. The country is now the largest global market for OnePlus, and accounts for over a third of all sales.

For the OnePlus 6, the company is introducing a couple of improvements that distinguish it from last year's models. Key among them is a glass design at the back, a retooled camera setup with a brand-new imaging sensor, upgraded internals, and water resistance. There's also an unwelcome addition in the form of a notch, but overall the OnePlus 6 is once again the phone to beat in this category.

Razer's Redesigned Blade Gaming Laptop Gets Bigger, Burlier

The laptop was supposed to get smaller. When the bezels shrink and the guts get faster, that’s what’s supposed to happen. But instead Razer’s 14-inch Blade laptop is being supersized into a 15.6-inch machine for its next version. And I’m almost convinced that’s the right decision.

How to enable navigation gestures on the OnePlus 6

Gestures offer an interesting new take on navigation.

OnePlus introduced navigational gestures to the OnePlus 5T earlier this year, and the feature has made its way to the OnePlus 6 as well. Gestures offer a new way to interact with the interface, and in many instances, they're a more intuitive way of navigating the UI. Google is set to roll out gestures of its own with Android P, and while OnePlus' implementation is slightly different to that of Google's, it's clear that gestures are the way forward for navigation on Android.
