Amazon’s 75-inch Fire TV Omni hits new low price with $400 off

Amazon’s Fire TV Omni series isn’t known for impressive picture quality – the black levels are so-so and the color accuracy isn’t great – but they do offer some nice benefits, including an HDMI 2.1 eARC port. It also has built-in microphones for hands-free Alexa voice commands, even with the screen off. Unlike the smaller configurations, the 75-inch model also includes support for Dolby Vision HDR. That’s on top of low input lag, support for two-way video calls and, of course, the ability to stream content from Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and all major streaming services. Read our review.

In terms of specs, the latest iPad Pro is powered by Apple’s M1 chip, has a fast 120Hz refresh rate, and supports Apple’s Center Stage feature, which keeps you centered in the frame while making video calls. However, unlike the other iPad models, the Pro lineup also has additional features such as Face ID and the option for additional storage. Admittedly, the screen isn’t quite as impressive as the Mini LED screen on its larger 12.9-inch sister, but it’s still good and, being smaller, more portable. And with iPadOS 16 likely to be released soon, the iPad will soon offer other features, including the ability to connect to an external monitor, real-time collaboration features in Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, and more.

Would you rather have a Chromebook than a tablet? Lenovo’s Flex 5 is a Chromebook that looks and feels more premium than the price suggests. For the price, it offers a good port selection with both a microSD reader and a USB-C port. It also features a slim backlit keyboard that we found both comfortable and impressive. Other niceties include a physical webcam shutter and front-facing speakers, but keep in mind that the sound quality isn’t particularly good. Unfortunately, so did the battery life, which only gave us five and a half hours. Nevertheless, it is a good Chromebook currently on sale. While the higher-spec model we tested and named our favorite Chromebook for mid-range shoppers isn’t discounted, you can buy a slower, lower-spec version with a Intel Celeron N5205U processor, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage for $249.99 instead of $379.99 at Amazonwhich is just $2 shy of its best price yet.

A portable charger like Anker’s 621 comes in handy when you’re on the go or traveling and your phone is running low. Anker’s 621 slim build means you can easily carry it in your purse or pocket too. Most importantly, it’s compatible with Apple’s MagSafe technology, meaning it can be attached to the back of newer smartphone models thanks to built-in internal magnets. That means you can charge your phone wirelessly while calling or taking photos. You also don’t have to worry about interference from other magnets, as MagSafe can only be attached to compatible accessories. Please note, however, that the charger is only compatible with iPhone 14, iPhone 13, and iPhone 12 models, and you need a compatible magnetic iPhone case to use it.
