While the absurd state of plane ticketing is a topic for another article, it is time to  [Read More…]

A little about this review

Stock Android really isn’t all that great

Have you used a Samsung phone recently?

In the world of Android, one point of contention that comes up more often than just about anything else is the endless debate over “stock Android.” Starting first with the Nexus line and then continuing with Pixel phones, the software that’s on Google-made gadgets is seen as a representation of what Google thinks Android should look and feel like — a stock, default setup.

Manufacturers such as LG, HTC, and  [Read More…]

LG G7 One hands-on: The G7 sold its soul for great Android One software

HMD finally made a budget phone that can take on Xiaomi and Honor.

The Nokia 6 series holds special value for HMD Global. The Nokia 6 was the first Android device to feature Nokia branding, and it was one of the manufacturer’s best-selling devices last year. The phone wasn’t without its faults, however, as the Snapdragon 430 was underwhelming in day-to-day usage.

Nokia did a magnificent job optimizing the software to run on underpowered hardware during its  [Read More…]

Xiaomi Mi Band 3 brings enough great features for the price (review)

Xiaomi seemed to have a sleeper hit on their hands with the Mi Band 2; a smartwatch/fitness tracker that lacked several high-end features, but was offered at a price (about $ 20 US) low enough to tempt a whole lot of people to give it a try.

Including our household- I personally bought one for my wife, who to that point was not a fitness stats-based person in the least. While she was appreciative but hesitant at first, she quickly got  [Read More…]
