Great low-cost cell service.

AC Score 4

Cell phone plans are a necessary evil in the modern world, so it seems like everyone is trying to get to a cheaper plan to save some money. There are a few great prepaid plans out there, but the best that I’ve found is Mint Mobile.

Mint Mobile — formerly Mint SIM — has been around for a  [Read More…]

Shop eBay’s assortment of ‘Better Black Friday Deals’ starting right now

We’re not really sure what to say.

November is almost half way over, and that means that Black Friday will be here before we know it. We’ve already seen a bunch of ads surface from companies like Target, Walmart, Best Buy, and others, but this one from eBay is a bit, well… odd. In an attempt to stand out from the rest, eBay has launched a “Better Black Friday Deals” promotion that starts right now.

Echo Dot (3rd Gen) Review: Bigger, better, and much louder

Amazon’s heavy hitter has been overhauled with a focus on quality and volume.

When people say they have an Amazon Echo, they almost always mean they have an Echo Dot. The cheapest of the Echo family regularly drops into stocking-stuffer price points, which allowed for these speakers to quickly rise in popularity over the last two years. But popularity doesn’t necessarily mean quality, and the competition quickly moved to make mini speakers with better speakers and a  [Read More…]

This $19 training bundle is your golden ticket to taking better pictures

Be honest with yourself for a moment. You think the photos you take are pretty good, but you really like how that one friend of yours is able to capture things on a whole different level. They’re not professional, but the pictures are so much better than what you’d normally take.

According to InfoTrends, there were roughly 1.2 trillion digital pictures captured last year, shaking out to about 160 per person. How many did you take? How many of them  [Read More…]

Android apps to make your Pokemon Go experience even better

Pokemon Go is huge. Yes, in fall of 2018. In fact, the game is as popular now as it was upon its launch some two years back. It’s a money-making monster and people can’t get enough.

Why is Pokemon Go so popular now? There are plenty of reasons. For starters, there’s no fewer than 350 Pokemon available to catch. New characters are added all the time and the fourth generation appears to be on the horizon. Then there’s Community Day,  [Read More…]

Razer Phone 2 hands-on preview: Same game, better phone

The second-generation Razer Phone is just as good at gaming, and better at being a phone.

Although flawed in execution, the original Razer Phone wasn’t hopelessly bad. It was a good idea in need of further refinement. Razer had a silky 120Hz display, but daylight visibility was so poor that outdoor use was painful. It had a dual camera system, but with photo quality that’d be embarrassing on a phone half the price. Plus it was missing table-stakes  [Read More…]

Google Home is awesome; here’s how to make it even better!

First introduced in May 2016, the Google Home has fast become one of the leading connected smart speakers. It’s perhaps one of the most flexible devices of its kind and only gets better with updates and new features.

We’re in an era where the Google Home faces strong competition from the likes of Sonos, Amazon Echo, and the Apple HomePod. Each has its own advantages and drawbacks, and the space will get more crowded when Samsung delivers its first Bixby-powered  [Read More…]

Urbanear Lotsen Speaker Review: A better “smart” speaker clone?

Urbanears has been an audio company for a long time now. It focuses mainly on aesthetics rather than creating the highest audio quality for only prestigious “audiophiles”. The company’s newest project includes a 3-tier family of smarter, connected speakers. These include the Baggen at the high end, Stammen in the middle, and the Lotsen on the low end. I’ve received the Lotsen to review. This family of speakers seems to rival the similar families from Sonos (Play series) and Bose  [Read More…]

Everything Lenovo Smart Display does better than a tablet in the kitchen

Android Things is functional in ways a normal tablet can’t manage, and that’s okay.

With the launch of Lenovo’s Smart Display with Android Things onboard, we’ve seen one question, in particular, stand out above the others. Why buy this when you can buy an Android tablet? Wouldn’t it be better to have something battery powered you could take with you everywhere? In some ways, sure, a tablet offers portability and functionality beyond the Android Things platform.

But  [Read More…]
