If you’ve been working from home on a 13-, 14- or 15-inch laptop and you’re finding your productivity suffering by working on its small screen, you may be craving moving to something larger. An external display might make the most sense assuming you’ve got the room for one. But, if you need something more mobile and lap-friendly, the LG Gram 17 might do the trick because, despite its tall 17-inch display, it’s incredibly light with a long battery life making it a standout in the category.

Motorola Edge Plus: 5G, best cameras of any Moto phone…but I wanted more


The Motorola Edge Plus ($1,000 at Motorola) has pretty much everything you’d hope for in a premium 5G phone: It’s got a Snapdragon 865 chipset, a giant battery, an OLED screen with a high refresh rate and multiple rear cameras with heavy-duty specs. Motorola took features found on other top-of-the-line Android phones, put its own Moto spin on them and housed them all into one of the most wonderful Android phones I’ve tried in a long time.

Arlo Audio Doorbell, hands on: Simple and flexible door security Review

Doorbell cameras have become both popular and notorious; the idea that you could see who was at your door from upstairs, or even when you’re on holiday, also exposed questions about neighbourhood surveillance (and some issues with app security). And if you already have a security camera that covers the front door, you don’t need another tucked into the doorbell, which isn’t always easy to position to give you a good camera angle anyway.

Apple iPhone SE (2020) review: An affordable, capable business phone fit for uncertain times Review

A couple of years ago the Apple iPhone X restored my joy in smartphones and a lot of that had to do with the small size and extremely responsive performance of the phone. I went through the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR before choosing to stick with the iPhone XS and then moved onto the iPhone 11 Pro.

Two months ago, I traded in my iPhone 11 Pro — as part of the T-Mobile Jump On Demand program  — to pick up the new Galaxy S20. When I saw the announcement for the new 2020 iPhone SE with a
