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…]

Galaxy Note 8 review: MrMobile loves that S Pen

Six-point-three; 3300; 195; twelve. Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 8 is awash in numbers … but there’s only one that really matters: $ 105. That’s how many more clams you’ll shell out at the register if you choose the Galaxy Note 8 over its close cousin, the Galaxy S8+. In exchange, you’ll get a larger screen, dual cameras, a few spec bumps … and the most misunderstood accessory in smartphones. Many folks are asking if adding a stylus is worth  [Read More…]

LG V30 hands-on by MrMobile

If you thought the LG V30 was going to look like its predecessors the V20 and V10, join the club! I was expecting another steel-sided monster from a key grip’s toolbox with gaff tape patching the scuffs. Instead, we get this: a spit-polished glass sandwich of a smartphone that’s much lighter in the hand than you expect. Factor in LG’s first AMOLED screen in ages; the latest version of the company’s super-wide-angle camera; and wireless charging and a Hi-Fi  [Read More…]

Samsung has new Gear to keep you Fit: MrMobile hands on

Samsung’s Gear Sport, Gear Fit2 Pro, and Icon X are all variations of designs we’ve seen before. The Gear Sport is an evolution of the Gear S3 Frontier, Samsung’s outdoor smartwatch I reviewed last year. I didn’t get as close a look at the Gear Fit2 or the Icon X earbuds – but maybe that’s just as well, given how much the newer models improve upon their forebears. With MIL-STD 810G durability and 5ATM water resistance the Gear Sport  [Read More…]

Essential Phone review by MrMobile

The stated goal of Essential Products is to make technology easier and more accessible, and it’s got an ambitious roadmap of devices planned to help it achieve that end. But its first product, the Essential Phone, fits better into the extended definition of the word: this is a phone that tries to get down to the brass tacks, the bare fundamentals of what a smartphone should be. The result is a beautiful ceramic-and-titanium slab unlike any Android phone produced  [Read More…]

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…]

MrMobile goes hands-on with the Moto Z2 Force

For the fifth year running, Motorola’s spicing up the summer with a smartphone that’s not afraid to stand out – but this year, the bombastic brand name feels a bit … Forced.

I’m Michael Fisher, alias MrMobile, and I went hands-on with the Moto Z2 Force Edition and the latest Moto Mod, the Moto 360 Camera. Check out this video, and then head over to Android Central’s hands-on coverage for more.

Highway to the top-notch tech zone with MrMobile and Modern Dad!

GoPro and solar and watches — oh, my! It’s Top Notch Tech with MrMobile and Modern Dad!

Previously, on MrMobile Meets ModernDad, I took a look at some sweet home tech used by my paternal pal. But Modern Dad also likes to be mobile on occasion, and I’d been eyeing the sweet little camera known as the GoPro Hero5 Black (on sale for $ 349!) that he’s had on hand. Think about it. … Is there anything better than  [Read More…]
