RhinoShield Galaxy S8 CrashGuard Bumper Review: Sleek S8 protection

Surprisingly rugged for a bumper case.

I’ll be entirely honest from the outset : I did not think I would feel comfortable using the RhinoShield CrashGuard with my Galaxy S8.

And yet, after spending about a month using the Galaxy S8 with just the RhinoShield for protection, I  [Read More…]

LG V30 hands-on by MrMobile

The LG V30 is the phone the G6 should’ve been from the start

The LG V30 rivals the Samsung Galaxy S8 on all fronts.

There are a couple of ways to approach the new LG V30. It’s obviously the technical successor to the LG V20, incorporating the same wide-angle camera tech, enhanced audio, and more of last year’s top-end LG smartphone offering. Another way is to look at it as the true LG G6+ (I am aware there is an actual G6+), with a more refined design, improved camera, and a bigger  [Read More…]
