MrMobile goes hands-on with the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL!

When Google dropped its first Pixel smartphone last year, I was not impressed. I dogged it for its lack of waterproofing, its derivative design, and for having a custom launcher when I expected pure stock Android. But then an important thing happened: I used the Pixel. And in short order, its instantaneous responsiveness ruined me for every other Android phone out there.

Yesterday in San Francisco, Google announced a couple successors to those original Pixels. The Pixel 2 and  [Read More…]

BlackBerry KEYone ‘Black Edition’ goes worldwide, bringing bumped specs and a higher price

The black BlackBerry is going global.

BlackBerry KEYone sales have turned out to be surprisingly strong, and to give them an extra little boost BlackBerry Mobile is releasing a new color of the phone with bumped specs around the world. The Black Edition, as you’d expect, has shed its silver and grey adornments for a full blacked-out look. It looks stealthy and clean, but you’ll surely still stand out with that keyboard on the front.

MrMobile goes hands-on with the BlackBerry KEYone Special Edition

Normally, a new color option and a minor spec bump aren’t newsworthy enough for a hands-on video. But the BlackBerry KEYone Special Edition (or, if you want to be all official about things, the “Limited Edition KEYone Mercury Black Device by BlackBerry made by Optiemus Infracom”) is noteworthy for more than a new paint job. For one thing, the special-edition KEYone improves on the base model in RAM and internal storage, two areas it was especially lacking. And for  [Read More…]

Adobe Lightroom mobile goes ‘Android native’ with slightly refreshed interface

Just because an update looks small doesn’t mean it isn’t important.

Adobe has updated its Lightroom Mobile app for Android with an all-new “Android native” interface, though the changes aren’t as big as you’d think with such a proclamation. The main change to the experience is better labeling of buttons and simpler sliders that make sense on a (relatively) small screen that’s used exclusively with touch.

Lightroom Mobile continues to  [Read More…]
