T-Mobile launches BYOD promo on Google Pixel 2, half off original price

The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, like their predecessors, are Verizon exclusives in the US, and this is causing some consternation for some who were hoping to get the new Pixels on an installment plan with AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile. Google isn’t repenting of its Verizon exclusivity for its phone hardware. There is […]

Years have passed since the initial release, and while smart watches have become more sophisticated and Pebble was bought out by  [Read More…]

ASUS announces five ZenFone 4 variants: Original, Pro, Max Pro, Selfie, and Selfie Pro

ASUS has announced the ZenFone 4. While the number “4” for 4 variants would’ve been ideal marketing (ASUS had 3 variants for the ZenFone 3), the Taiwanese Android OEM has emerged with five ZenFone 4 variants: ZenFone 4 (Original), ZenFone 4 Pro, ZenFone 4 Max Pro, ZenFone 4 Selfie, and ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro. All […]

The Moto X4 looks like a true successor to the original

Moto X4 leaks in all its glory.

Motorola’s Moto X line has taken a back seat as the company has focused on the modular Moto Z line, but that looks to be changing soon. We already know Motorola is coming out with a fourth Moto X, but a leak from Brazilian site Tudocellular, which obtained images as it passes through the country’s telecommunications agency, confirms a few key features for the device.

The leaked photos confirmed some  [Read More…]

This $50 Amazon Echo battery base from Mission Cables lets the original Alexa go mobile

The original Amazon Echo is still a great product. By making it mobile, though, it becomes even better.

Let’s say you’re one of those “normal” people who has only a single Amazon Echo. And the original one at that. It’s a good-enough speaker for music, but it’s shackled to the wall, because the thing still needs a power source.

Not exactly the sort of thing I’d want to drag outside onto the deck on a regular basis, especially with  [Read More…]

Two years on, the original Huawei Watch is still one of the best Android wearables

If you don’t want LTE — and let’s be honest, you don’t want LTE — Huawei’s original Android watch remains a fantastic option.

Android Wear is kind of all over the place right now. All the watches released in the past few months have either been ridiculously huge — hi there LG Watch Sport and Huawei Watch 2 — or underwhelming for other reasons — sup LG Watch Style, with sub-24-hour battery life. Even outside of the  [Read More…]

The HTC Vive you can buy now is very different from the original

Take a look at how much the Vive has improved since launch.

If you are one of the many people with a pre-ordered launch edition of the HTC Vive, you’ll be a little surprised to see how different the Vive is now for someone walking into a store to pick one up off the shelf. The latest refresh happened in January, and all of the little changes come together to form a decent little refresh.

Samsung’s new Gear 360 available tomorrow for way cheaper than the original

You can pick up a new Gear 360 starting May 25!

The biggest hurdle for most people when it comes to getting into 360-degree photography is price. Cheap 360 cameras don’t take good photos, and good 360-degree cameras aren’t cheap. Samsung is going to put an end to this with its new Gear 360 camera, which will be launching in stores and online just about everywhere for $ 229.

That price undercuts the original Gear 360 pricing by over  [Read More…]

Tap Hero – A more original Flappy Bird (Review)

Yes, I know that I probably deserve to be burned at the stake for bringing up this cursed game from 2013, but by the end of this, you’ll see where I am coming from. Alright, down to business. Tap Hero, the sole product offered by APPLICATTURA Michal Walaszczyk is offered on both Google Play and the […]

The original Huawei Watch doesn’t have NFC and isn’t getting Android Pay

Bad news for those looking forward to mobile payments on the original Huawei Watch.

I loved the Huawei Watch. It was sleek, it was sexy, it had a battery that went for days… but it doesn’t have NFC. We can’t change that, much as we wanted to after we saw the headscratchers that were the Huawei Watch 2 and the Huawei Watch 2 Classic.

Although a Huawei representative confirmed to Ausdroid that the watch does have a  [Read More…]
