This week's hottest reviews on TechRadar

Moto X
The Moto X looks like a solid handset, but why isn't it coming out outside of the USA?

The universe is expanding due to a phenomenon known as dark energy. No one knows what it is, how it works, or how to explain it. All we know is that it's pushing all the galaxies in the observable universe further and further apart - it's a divisive flavour of energy to say the least.

In the tech universe, meanwhile, the TechRadar reviews section is also expanding. But instead of invoking theoretical physics to explain this fact, we're able to explicate that it's because of non-dark energy being spent relentlessly testing the latest gadgets and gear.

For example. I recently ate a lovely burrito and spent all of the energy derived from it reviewing a TV. Do you see?

Either way, what we can all agree on is that despite it being the traditionally quiet summer slumber period, we're still feverishly churning out reviews of exciting products, and here are the best of the last seven days:

Motorola Moto X review

Motorola Moto X...

The Motorola/Google phone is out in the open, and while it may pale in specs, it keeps the user experience at the forefront. Or at least, the American experience, at any rate. Because this hot new phone is afraid of flying and will not be journeying to foreign shores. Hands on: Motorola Moto X review

New Nexus 7 review

Google Nexus 7...

Modest on price, boastful on specs, is the new Nexus 7 the tablet we've all been waiting for? Hands on: New Nexus 7 review

Now TV Box review

Now TV Box...

This one's UK-only so non-Britons can move on to the delicious LG TV below. But for any Sky TV lovers in the UK, this £10 media streamer is a bargainous enabler that could be the gadget that turns your home into a tech-enabled wireless haven. Now TV Box review

LG 47LA860W review

LG 47LA860W...

A hugely impressive user experience makes this 47-inch flagship LED TV fun to use but it lacks the contrast and black levels of its nearest competitors. LG 47LA860W review

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 review

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190...

The Lenovo Q190 is a tiny computer that you can hide out of sight behind a monitor of TV, but is it too small? Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 review

OMG Life Autographer review

OMG Life Autographer...

This wearable camera enables you to photogrpah your entire day without a single press of a shutter button. Hands on: OMG Life Autographer review

Panasonic DMP-BDT330 review

Panasonic DMP-BDT330...

A great Blu-ray player, but the smart stuff doesn't get anywhere near Panasonic's own TV features. So aside from some excellent 4K/Ultra HD upscaling, is there any need to spend this much cash? Panasonic DMP-BDT330 review

Sony KDL-46W905A review

Sony KDL-46W905A...

Another fantastic flagship TV from Sony, the W9 range offers stunning picture and sound quality with good looks and excellent smart features. Sony KDL-46W905A review
