Skagen Falster 2 review: A gorgeous, flawed smartwatch that’s easy to love

The best-looking Android smartwatch, but not the best value.

The Android smartwatch ecosystem is improbably competitive again, after a couple years of stagnation where the Wear OS, née Android Wear, ecosystem was practically left for dead.

The invigoration came not from tech companies like Motorola or LG, which led the charge over four years ago, but from Fossil Group — owners of so many well-known watch brands it’s hard to keep track — and other lifestyle companies  [Read More…]

F1 2018 is a fast and furious update fans of the franchise will love

Formula 1 makes its return with Halos firmly in tow and a superb single-player experience.

F1 2017 was a leap forward for Codemasters’ officially-licensed franchise, and as the yearly update cycle has come around again, there’s now an official esports series to go with it. Top teams are recruiting top drivers, and the connection between real life and the game world is closer than ever before.

F1 2018 is less of a jump forward than its predecessor,  [Read More…]

Dell’s new Chromebook is for grown-ups, and I love it

This isn’t your kid’s Chromebook. This is something entirely new.

For several good reasons, Chromebooks tend to have an educational focus. Given the typically low price tag and focus on Google Apps for Education, it made perfect sense for many companies to work with Google on products just for schools. But what happens when these kids grow up with Chromebooks and want a computer of their own as they enter High School and College? There aren’t many  [Read More…]

Android P features you’ll love: App Actions

App Actions can let our phones and other devices help us do something instead of just telling us how we could do it.

App Actions are a new set of tools that allows a developer to interact with Google Assistant, your phone’s Launcher (Home app), the Play Store, and other Google products like Search.

Google has always tried to help point us at the right thing or place with products like Search and Maps. App Actions take  [Read More…]

Android P features you’ll love: Restricted apps to save you battery life

Android P will help you make apps that don’t behave stop sucking down your battery by putting them on restriction.

We all have different wants and needs about what our phone can do for us, but we all have one thing in common, too: we want our battery to last longer. Whether you get more than a day from a phone like the ASUS Zenfone Max and its 5,000mAh battery or you barely make it through the  [Read More…]

Android P features we love: Adaptive Battery support

Google taps into Artificial Intelligence to learn when to shut down apps and save your battery.

Artificial Intelligence is something you’ll hear a lot of talk about, but much of that talk can be a little confusing. That doesn’t mean that AI can’t be used to do simple things that have a real benefit to the way you use our connected things and Android P’s Adaptive Battery is one of them.

It’s one of the least spectacular  [Read More…]

Mod In A Box: MrMobile Tries (To Love) The Moto Z3 Play

Any phone that takes you from sunrise to sunset without dying is a pretty solid phone in my book. So when I came home from a day of Google Maps navigation, hotel hunting and shooting endless photos (while Instagramming my every meal, natch) I expected my Moto Z3 Play to be mere moments from auto-shutdown. But while its Moto Mod was indeed just ticking over to zero as I walked in the door, the Z3 Play’s onboard  [Read More…]

Android P features you’ll love: A better camera experience

Android P provides built-in support for multiple cameras and ways to help developers take high-quality photos in a jiffy.

Android P is going to make it easier to support almost any camera configuration with things like the new Multi-Camera API.
