In the past, the term “budget phone” was usually a warning rather than a tempting proposition. That’s not the case any longer today when the market abounds with top budget phones.

HP Chromebook X2 review: Great Chromebook, better Android tablet

The first detachable Chromebook is here, and it’s more than worth your consideration.

Chromebooks — and Chrome OS as a whole — have been going through a growth spurt over the last few years. Conversely, Android tablets are still around, but it’s clear that Google is aiming for low-cost Chromebooks to take over this space.

Google Assistant vs. Cortana: Which is better for you?

Google Assistant and Cortana are both great at the basics of being a smart assistant, but there are some differences when it comes to platform and home automation support.

If you’re back and forth between Google’s and Microsoft’s ecosystems, one of the bigger sticking points can be the virtual assistant that each company offers.

YouTube Music vs. Spotify: Which is the better streaming music service?

Can the biggest name in streaming video overtake the biggest name in streaming music?

If there is a throne to be won in music streaming, Spotify won it years ago. They’ve got a great selection, they’ve somehow gotten a better reputation for algorithms than Google, and with their Student pricing, they lure in younger listeners in droves and then hook them into staying long after they graduate.

Fitbit told us to expect Quick Replies, but what we weren’t told is that this update was also going to overhaul the way Fitbit smartwatches (including the Versa and Ionic) handle notifications.
