Microsoft is calling their new Xbox One X “the world’s most powerful console,” promising smoother gameplay, bigger worlds, and more details than ever before. But how’d they shove all that extra power into the One X? We did a video teardown to find out.
With these sweet wallpapers, you can basically pretend you’re looking straight through the screen and into the heart of your phone—like you have X-ray vision. And speaking of X-rays—this year, we’ve two internals options for you: a gorgeous, high-resolution image and an X-ray image of your iPhone X insides. By the way, the edge-to-edge display makes this set of wallpapers especially slick.
This is the iPhone that Steve Jobs imagined. He ran out of time to build it, but he built the team that eventually did. We beat the lines in the United States and traveled to Australia to take apart an iPhone X in the future and find out how his vision was finally brought to life.
As a kid, I clocked a lot of time playing video games with my brothers. Ah, the 16-bit glory days of gaming. Re-experience your misspent youth with this teardown compilation of throwback gaming systems from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and early 2000s.
Google’s “Active Edge” feature actually feels new—so we took apart the Pixel 2 XL to figure out how it works. Turns out the input method is similar to the MacBook’s Force Touch trackpad, but cooler.
It took us awhile, but we finally managed to get our hands on the crazy-popular, highly-coveted SNES Classic Edition. Out of the box, the mini-console—with its familiar external construction—is designed for nostalgia.
With 4K and HDR streaming capabilities, the new Apple TV 4K brings the heat. Heat wreaks some serious havoc on electronics—from cracked solder to fried chips—so Apple popped a fan assembly onto the heatsink of yore, and punched some ventilation into the case.
The iPhone 8 Plus has roughly the same architecture we found in our iPhone 8 teardown, with just a little more room to stretch your thumbs. For an authentic repair experience, we tried prying out a broken rear panel. Nobody will be removing an intact panel. Our results were… not good.
Aside from the glass, the iPhone 8 felt a lot more familiar than we expected for a phone that’s supposed to be a generation all in its own. Maybe Apple’s saving their best tricks for the iPhone X?
