I use my phone in the shower — don’t judge, just listen

This isn’t some weird phone addiction thing, I promise.

I travel a fair bit. Sometimes just for fun, but usually for work. When I travel for work, I’m usually fairly burned out by the end of the day. I’m not much of a drinker (or smoker, for that matter) and so I usually turn to my phone to watch something and just sort of detox from the day. It’s usually whatever show I would normally be watching  [Read More…]

Moto Z2 Force India review: A great phone let down by a poor camera

Motorola is bringing the Moto Z2 Force to India six months after its global debut, and that puts the phone in a tough spot.

Motorola launched the Moto Z2 Force in the U.S. over six months ago, and while the ShatterShield tech was a welcome addition that allowed the phone to stand out, the $ 720 retail price and woeful camera meant it wasn’t quite as good as flagships from Samsung and LG.

For its Indian launch,  [Read More…]

You can finally sign up for PlayStation Vue on your phone

Local channels are also available wherever you go.

PlayStation Vue is one of my personal favorite live TV streaming services to-date, but one thing that’s remained a constant annoyance since its debut almost three years ago is the sign-up process. Up until now, PlayStation Vue has required you to have a TV in order to create and register your account. Thankfully, that restriction is being eliminated.

In an interview with Engadget, PlayStation Vue head Dwayne Benefield said  [Read More…]

Essential Phone 2 — How Essential can have a much more successful year two

Essential’s biggest task is to learn from the mistakes of the PH-1.

One of 2017’s most polarizing devices was the Essential Phone. There was a lot of hype for the startup headed by Android father Andy Rubin, and while the Essential Phone’s hardware is still some of the best money can buy, continued software bugs and lackluster camera performance continues to put a damper on what should have been one of last year’s best handsets.

Essential’s confirmed  [Read More…]

How to declutter your phone with Google Files Go

Files Go is an elegant solution to a long-standing problem on Android.

Managing internal storage has always been a problem on Android, particularly on devices with limited storage. For instance, a phone with 16GB of storage has just over 10GB of usable space at best, with the rest of the storage taken up by the operating system itself. That doesn’t leave a whole lot of room for your apps, music, photos, videos, and games, and while there’s  [Read More…]
