It’s hard to look on the bright side with everything that’s going on in the world right now, but during this period of self-isolation, most people have more free time than ever to finally kickstart that podcast idea or record more voiceovers. I’ve been using XLR mics for a number of years now, but USB mics are quicker and easier to set up, and work with just about any computer — some even work with phones!

Go green with these great eco-friendly Galaxy S20 cases

No matter your taste, your phone needs a case, but when cases are designed to survive years of sweat, strain, and abuse, they also tend to last a long time in a landfill once you’re done with it. Thankfully, you can buy cases that are friendly for the planet — made from sustainable materials and/or for easy composting. Eco-friendly cases is still a small market, especially for the brand-new Galaxy S20, but here are the best ones you can buy  [Read More…]

Why a VPN is a great idea for phone security, anonymity, safety and more

A VPN, or virtual private network, is a great way to keep your online identity anonymous and your data secure. This is especially important when using your smartphone where so much of your personal information is stored.

One way that your information or identity can be accessed is via an insecure open Wi-Fi connection. Since a phone is something you always have on you as you move about, it’s a device that will likely connect to a lot of open  [Read More…]

The Galaxy S20 is available in five great colors — here’s the best one

Samsung phones are always some of the best-looking in the Android space, and this year is no different with the Galaxy S20 lineup. Samsung’s offering three models this time around with the S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra, and each one looks and feels like the high-end flagships that they are. The color choices have been scaled back compared to what Samsung offered last year with the S10, but that’s not to say the options we have this year  [Read More…]

Getting a Galaxy S20? Here are some great headphones to pair it with

The Galaxy S20 includes exciting new additions like a 120Hz screen, but it misses out on one important feature: the 3.5mm jack. Samsung is the latest brand to ditch the analog jack, and that means you’ll have to use Bluetooth headphones to listen to music on your S20. The obvious choice is Sony’s WH-1000XM3 for its superlative sound quality combined by excellent noise isolation.

HyperX Cloud Flight S headset hands-on: Great virtual surround sound

I’ve been testing out the HyperX Cloud Flight S for a couple of weeks now, and I love it.

HyperX recently made a new addition to its Cloud Flight wireless headset line with the HyperX Cloud Flight S. Upon first glance there isn’t much different other than a slight change in coloring on the earcups (goodbye stereotypical gamer red), but the Cloud Flight S actually offers a lot more than its older sibling. I’ve had about two  [Read More…]

Keep your Galaxy A70’s ‘Glasstic’ back looking great with these cases

The Samsung Galaxy A-series doesn’t get as much love as the S and Note flagships, but just at a glance the Galaxy A70 looks way more similar to it’s premium bretheren than its competition in the mid-range smartphone space. Samsung has opted to use “Glasstic” on the back side (basically a really glossy plastic material) so you’re going to want a case to avoid any unsightly scratches and scuffs.
