Can the Echo Dot Kids Edition filter explicit songs?

Best answer: Yes, all Amazon Alex-enabled devices have an option to block explicit songs, and that setting is on by default on the Amazon Echo Dot Kids Edition. Not all music services compatible with Amazon Alexa work with the explicit filter, but Amazon Music and Spotify do.

Awair 2nd Edition review: Number 2, but in a good way

Air quality readings so detailed that they just may scare you into holding your breath — or doing something about it.

I checked out the Awair Glow a while back and loved its double duty as air quality monitor and smart plug. I was then asked more recently to review the Awair 2nd Edition — it’s the second iteration of the main Awair air quality monitor, and I figured I better give the bigger, better device a  [Read More…]

Umidigi Z2 Special Edition: Why a Special Edition?

The Umidigi Z2 is one of the Chinese company’s most successful phones of 2018. It’s selling well, but buyers haven’t been thrilled with the main camera sensor – specifically, with the Bokeh effects and shooting in low-light situations. The Umidigi Z2 Pro features a better Samsung S5K2P7 sensor, but the price difference between the two is a bit prohibitive. This is where the Z2 Special Edition comes in.

Umidigi just officially unveiled the UMIDIGI Z2 Special Edition, with an upgraded rear camera sensor and a new color that looks to be an evolution of the recently-popular Twilight style. It sacrifices in other areas, though – specifically in the RAM department.

The standard Umidigi Z2 features a 6.2″, 19:9 FHD+ display with a 90% screen-to-body ratio, making it a true full-screen phone. It runs on a Helio P23 processor and 6/64GB RAM/ROM, so it should be up to handling  [Read More…]

Last year, Google launched a stripped back version of its mobile operating system designed for low-spec smartphones. The promise behind Android Go was pretty simple. Built on Android Oreo, this version was meant to run better on phones with either 512MB or 1GB of RAM.

Google said that every Android release would have an Android Go configuration. And with Android 9.0 Pie out and about, Google has this week announced the updated Go variant.

It’s called Android 9 Pie (Go  [Read More…]
