Android Wear 2.0 Complications are great. It’s a shame we can’t use them.

I’m not into ‘complicated’.

Despite my penchant for detailed themes with lot of steps, I’m really a girl who likes things to work and work easily. When I got an LG Watch Style and started browsing for watch faces, I was excited to finally have complications that would work the same across every watch face. I was excited to have the same complications available to all watch faces rather than just the options a developer included in  [Read More…]

Huawei P10 ranks near top of DxOMark camera tests, but can’t beat the Pixel

Picture this.

The Huawei P10 has a lot to love, especially with a Leica-powered dual camera array and a manageable one hand-friendly size. The setup may be close to last year’s P9, but it’s taken the Mate 9’s excellent 20MP monochrome sensor to give it a big boost in the detail department, coming close to the Google Pixel’s photo quality in DxOMark’s tests.

What exactly does that mean?

In the breakdown of the P10’s setup, DxO  [Read More…]

Can’t be with your sweetie on Valentine’s Day? These apps can help you make long-distance whoopie! 🍆

The next best thing to being in there.

Nothing is better than spending Valentine’s Day with the one you love. It’s a day like any other day, but it’s also been traditionally set aside for couples to do those things couples like to do with each other. But life being what it is, sometimes it’s impossible to be with each other and make some private fireworks.

We’re not saying even the best app can be a substitute,  [Read More…]

What do you want your phone to do that it can’t?

Phones today are incredibly powerful. They’re supercomputers in our pockets. But that doesn’t mean they do everything — and there’s plenty people want, realistic or otherwise.

The weeks after CES are a strange amalgam of far-in-the-future prognosticating about the future of technology in its myriad form factors and the beginning of the year’s less ambitious, commercially available products.

We look to the big launches of the year, like the LG G6 and Galaxy S8, to set the  [Read More…]
