iOttie iTap Wireless charging car mount review: As good as it gets

Wirelessly charge your Qi-enabled phone with ease.

If you’ve ever used a wireless charging stand before, you know that the two biggest issues are lining up your phone on the charging coils and keeping it there. Nothing is more frustrating than thinking your phone has been wirelessly charging only to discover it got knocked slightly off its orientation.

It’s a great accessory for any device that supports Qi charging — including the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

Samsung looks to make good on Note 7 recycling promises

Samsung is making good on its promise to recycle some of the Galaxy Note 7’s unused and valuable metals.

Samsung said it would do everything it could to minimize the effect of its massive Galaxy Note 7 recall, and in two stages it is doing just that.

The first is by releasing a so-called Galaxy Note Fan Edition, which reworks the Note 7 into a limited-release handset with a smaller 3300mAh battery running Nougat.

The second, and  [Read More…]

Braven Stryde 360 review: Bluetooth and waterproof never sounded so good

For $ 100, the Braven Stryde 360 just might be the best waterproof Bluetooth speaker around.

The Braven Stryde 360 is Braven’s latest Bluetooth speaker offering from its “Active” series, which combines water resistance, excellent sound, and a price tag that’s more than easy to swallow.

Here’s my full review!

Audio quality

When I first unbox a Bluetooth speaker, I don’t take stock of how it looks, the controls, or any other superfluous features. I immediately connect  [Read More…]

Protecting your OnePlus 5: A tempered glass screen protector is a good idea

Your choices are limited right now, but it’s worth considering a tempered glass screen protector to keep your OnePlus 5’s display in mint condition.

Tempered glass screen protectors are a great way to ensure any phone’s screen stays in great condition throughout its life span. But there are often comrpomises involved in picking one. Edge-to-edge screen protectors will generally leave a small air gap between the transparent area and the display, which can affect visibility. Clear tempered  [Read More…]

OnePlus 5 vs. Xiaomi Mi 6: Good just doesn’t cut it anymore

The OnePlus 5 is good, but the Mi 6 is better.

It’s getting harder to justify spending over $ 700 on a phone — even on a device as good as the Galaxy S8 — when there are alternatives like the OnePlus 5 available that offer 90% of the features for under $ 500. Then there’s the Xiaomi Mi 6, which manages to undercut the OnePlus 5 while offering similar specs.

Both OnePlus and Xiaomi stepped up  [Read More…]

Moto Z2 Play review: Midnight in the garden of good and sequel

The Moto Z2 Play is a great phone, but it’s not a great sequel.

The quick take

Motorola went iterative for its Moto Z Play sequel, announcing it just nine months after the original. It’s not a complete overhaul, and in two major ways is a downgrade, but it’s also one of the most well-rounded and enjoyable-to-use Android phones on the market.

Review: LG’s Tone Ultra neckbuds are as good as it gets

LG is still the best neckbud company out there.

Love them or hate them, Bluetooth earbuds you wear around your neck aren’t going anywhere. They’re inexpensive enough to be purchased on an impulse, the battery will never not last you a full day, and the connection to your phone is usually pretty strong. LG has dominated this category for years now with its quality and price, and after a week with the LG Tone Ultra (HBS-820) it’s  [Read More…]
