5G will drive a bigger wedge between the haves and have-nots

The current 5G deployment strategies mean you won’t find it in rural America any time soon.

In October 2018 I wrote about how 5G could be the best hope rural areas have when it comes to getting high-speed internet access. I concluded those thoughts with this little nugget: But I fear that nothing will change enough to make a difference and the have-nots will still go without.

LG G8 Specifications: Same look, bigger battery, new gimmicks

The LG G8 is coming, and it’s… interesting. The company that’s known for trying new things is launching an update to the G7 that’s a bit thicker to house a bigger battery, and utilizes the familiar notch in exciting, if gimmicky, new ways.

But whereas you may think the G8 just focuses on non-essential upgrades, it’s the first G product to use an OLED display, and it has a battery 17% bigger than its predecessor, which along with  [Read More…]

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…]

6 months after Pixel 2 launch, Google has nothing to say of its success — but hardware focus is bigger than ever

Other parts of the hardware and operating system business take the spotlight instead.

Alphabet just released its Q1 2018 earnings, and I followed along with the earnings call afterward to pick up further context on the numbers from Google CEO Sundar Pichai. The most striking thing from the call, at least as it pertains to us here in the Android world, is that the word “Pixel” was used only once — mentioned as an aside when talking  [Read More…]

Jigsaw Story: A good puzzle simulator that works best on bigger screens (review)

In all the game genres available in the Play Store, sometimes you may want to game in a much more chill, passive way. No quick reflexes. No bells, whistles, and music blaring at you.

Xiaomi Mi Max 2 review: Bigger is better

With a 6.44-inch display and a massive 5300mAh battery, Xiaomi’s latest phablet is the ideal device for consuming multimedia on the go.

Last year’s Mi Max was Xiaomi’s first attempt at a phone with a screen size over 6 inches. The phone wasn’t the company’s first phablet, however, with the 5.7-inch Mi Note making its debut back in 2015.
