About Electronics

Our most popular electronics categories, not surprisingly, are for mobile technology. We continuously update our reviews of the best smartphones and tablets. As new models are released, our expert reviewers assess their features and specifications, perform hands-on evaluations, then score and rank them against their competitors. Our reviewers frequently draw on additional benchmark tests carried out in the labs of our sister site, Tom’s Guide/Laptop. That data is used to help determine performance scores in areas including battery life, display quality and image quality from the devices’ built-in cameras. We reviewed and ranked mobile carriers, too, in our comparison of the best cell phone providers.

Beyond mobile, we review the best laptop computers and eBook readers, again in collaboration with our sister sites. Our evaluations of electronic products are vast but include flat-panel TVs, gaming consoles, desktops and laptops. We also feature peripheral devices like printers, routers and Wi-Fi boosters. Among our widely referenced sites are evaluations of digital cameras, camcorders, and home audio and video equipment.
