A lot of VR is based around shooting or scaring the pants off of you — blame it on the gun-like Vive controllers and the immersion level — but there are plenty of great experiences that are also suitable for children.

How to manually enable Daydream on phones Google has not approved

How do I install Daydream on my phone?

Google’s philosophy with their newest VR platform is simple. In order to offer the best possible experience in Daydream, there needs to be a minimum list of requirements met. The phone must be capable of delivering two video streams at 60fps with no stutter, and when you turn your head inside a Daydream headset there should be as little motion blur as possible.

Moto E4 review: Keeping it simple

The Moto E4 is one of the best prepaid deals you can get right now.

The Moto E4 is fine. It’s not particularly good looking or powerful, nor is it filled with features. When you think a generic smartphone, this is kind of what you think of.

And yet, for $ 129, I would probably recommend it, warts and all, over any other phone. At $ 70 on Verizon’s prepaid service, it’s an absolute steal. Here’s why.

TYLT Energi Pro review: MrMobile’s favorite battery backpack

Everything you need to know about Bixby Voice

We have early access to the Galaxy S8’s built-in Bixby Voice. Here’s another look at what’s coming to a Galaxy S8 near you.

We’ve already written plenty about the Galaxy S8’s Bixby functionality, but what we haven’t touched on is what to expect with Bixby Voice — ostensibly the main reason there’s an extra button on the flagship device in the first place.
