Pac-Man Monsters from Japanese developer GREE is a free to play puzzle-RPG, not unlike Puzzle & Dragons and Doctor Who: Legacy. But GREE’s take on the genre has a lot to differentiate it from other puzzlers. For one thing, it’s not a match-3 game! This one has a totally fresh puzzle mechanic to keep the battles interesting. It also features hundreds of Pac-Man characters and guest stars from classic Namco games for players to collect and  [Read More...]

Motorola Buds review

 

Bluetooth headphones aren’t for everyone. There are some of us out there – myself included – that prefer the reliability and quality that comes from using a cable. That goes for broadband too – Ethernet is generally better than WiFi. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a decent selection of good quality Bluetooth headphones out there, like these buds we’ve picked up from Motorola.

Simply known as “Buds,” what we’ve got is a neckband ensemble  [Read More...]

RAVPower Element 7800mAh Portable Charger Review

RAVPower1

Up for review today is the RAVPower Element 7800mAh Portable Charger and my first impression of the camouflage device was “meh”.  I have only seen a handful of portable chargers that looked decent, but looks are really not what matter here.  What really matters is the juice this puppy packs and it packs a  [Read More...]

lg_g3-official_1

The LG G3 will begin the global roll-out on June 27th, which will go first to Asian countries in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, and the Philippines. Then it’s headed to the remaining Asian markets, Europe/United Kingdom, and the Middle East with other regions in July.

Collectible card games are a great fit for mobile devices. You can play them in small doses, and the quest to find more cards will keep you coming back from day to day. One such game that has kept me hooked lately is Elemental Kingdoms from Perfect World Entertainment and Time 2 Play Studio.

What Elemental Kingdoms lacks in mechanical complexity it more than makes up for with a lengthy story mode, asynchronous online battles, and  [Read More...]

Samsung Galaxy Tab S review

When Samsung gets serious about tablets, it makes a couple of serious tablets

Yes, Samsung is releasing another series of flagship Android tablets with the Galaxy Tab S line. The Tab S tablets will be Samsung’s top of the line product in this category, so they need to reach many goals and turn out something that can compete with other high-end products, as well as lure a few people away from the inexpensive competition. It’s a  [Read More...]

Sprint Kyocera Hydro Vibe review

Sprint and Kyocera team up yet again to make that mid-range phone that does just enough to make you consider it if you’re in the right price bracket

Sprint and Kyocera are a bit of a dynamic duo in the U.S. wireless market, releasing new devices together every time you turn around. Between Sprint itself and its prepaid carriers Boost and Virgin Mobile, Kyocera pretty heftily blankets the low- to mid-range market with solid, waterproof and  [Read More...]

Galaxy S5 Active review

This Galaxy S5 is ready to take a beating

If you’ve been holding on to that older Samsung Rugby Smart or even last year’s Galaxy S4 Active, you’ll be pleased with what you’re about to read. With the Galaxy S5 Active, Samsung has once again taken their best selling device and sent it back to engineering to create a version that you can beat and abuse without ending up with something that no longer works. And  [Read More...]

Huawei Ascend P7 review

Huawei is back with a solid, if frustrating, new Android smartphone

Huawei may still be making inroads in western markets, but success elsewhere has seen the Chinese company rise to be the world’s No. 3 smartphone maker. That’s behind Samsung and Apple, no less. In Europe we’ve seen a number of cheap, low-to-mid range smartphones from Huawei but a truly high-end, desirable smartphone is much rarer.

With 2013′s Ascend P6, Huawei took a positive, yet flawed,  [Read More...]
