MrMobile’s Razer Phone 2 Hands-On: Glowing with potential

A blocky build chock full of right angles; a slick and smooth 120hz display; a big battery between even bigger speakers. Yep, the Razer Phone 2 sure is familiar! But in building a sequel to its gaming-focused flagship from last year, Razer has taken the opportunity to fix nearly every single flaw I called out in my review of that older model. From water and dust resistance to a glowing Chroma logo to a brighter display to  [Read More…]

JBL Link View review: A smart display with lots of potential not yet realized

These days smart speakers are nothing new but they are still evolving. Just as with the Echo and later the Echo Show, Amazon was first to the party. Now, Google is once again playing catch up with their very own smart displays hitting the market. First came the Lenovo Smart Display which was quickly followed by the JBL Link View. At this moment they are the only two players in the market for a Google Assistant powered smart display. For  [Read More…]

Sony Xperia XZ3 hands-on: Damn fine hardware, with potential pain points

This is some beautiful hardware that steps beyond the XZ2 in the right ways.

Sony’s strategy of releasing a new flagship phone every six months means you don’t have to wait long to see the company’s latest mobile tech. But it also means that the generation-over-generation changes are extremely subtle compared to others that refresh once a year. The Xperia XZ3 hasn’t broken that mold, but what has changed is notable and the overall product is still  [Read More…]

YouTube Music has the potential to solve Google’s streaming conundrum

Spotify, you might want to pay attention to what’s happening here.

On May 17, Google officially announced YouTube Music and YouTube Premium — the two services that’ll immediately be replacing YouTube Red and Play Music later on down the road.

Despite offering an excellent product, Google’s presence in the music streaming market has been less than prominent for some time. Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, and others have dominated, but Google’s struggled to find its footing.

The all-new  [Read More…]

What does a potential T-Mobile / Sprint merger mean for wireless users?

Why do these two companies want to hook-up so badly, and what would it mean for us?

Sprint and T-Mobile are back at it again. The two companies are said to be working on a way to find the common ground that lets them merge after two failed sets of talks. The most recent failure came after Softbank, Sprint’s parent company, had concerns about relinquishing control. While many say that the downsides of any merging of the  [Read More…]

Nokia 1 review: Android Go has a lot of potential

HMD’s most affordable Android phone to date has plenty to offer.

HMD Global set its sights on the budget segment last year, and heading into 2018 the Finnish manufacturer is doubling down with phones targeted at all price points. The Nokia 1 is particularly interesting as it is the first Android Go device from the manufacturer, with the phone featuring Google’s lightweight operating system optimized for low-powered hardware.

Galaxy S9 teaser videos highlight potential Animoji competitor, low-light camera performance

The hype machine is in full effect.

We’re getting down to the wire here, with Samsung’s Galaxy S9 launch event just over a week away on February 25 at MWC 2018. The hype machine is in full effect, so much so that Samsung has posted three different promo videos to its Korean YouTube channel to tease upcoming features of the phones. They’re only 15 seconds each and obviously don’t show the phones themselves, but the theming of each one  [Read More…]

Google billboard teases potential Pixel 2 event date of Oct 4

Well, it doesn’t get much clearer than that.

Initial reports pegged the Google Pixel 2 announcement for October 5, but it doesn’t get much clearer than this image sent to Droid-Life: a billboard, spotted in Boston, with the phrase “ask more of your phone” accompanied by a Google logo the date of October 4. Barring some weird coincidence, it seems like that’s the date for the next Pixel event.

Last year’s Google Pixel event, which was held  [Read More…]

ZTE Blade Z MAX – a potential game-changer in the budget smartphone scene (Review)

As I touched on when I went hands on with Metro’s ZTE Blade Z Max a couple weeks back, this phone has a ton of potential to redefine the concept of a budget smartphone. Typically when we think of budget phones, we look to low-end phones from big-name manufacturers such as LG and Samsung; poor […]
