HTC U11 review: A second opinion

HTC’s 2017 flagship is an excellent handset that sets the tone for the future of HTC’s smartphone business.

When you can pick up a pretty good smartphone for around $ 400, why would you cough up the extra 250 bucks for an HTC flagship? That question has been central to the Taiwanese manufacturer’s decline over the past couple of years. The company would target the likes of Apple and Samsung, miss, and get trounced by OnePlus, Huawei,  [Read More…]

Veosport V1 bluetooth earbuds offer comfy option with great sound (review)

The world of earbuds, and more specifically, Bluetooth earbuds, covers a spectrum of features that manufacturers try to focus in on. Fit, security, sound quality, and price are each highlighted, depending on the model in question. The big problem is normally only one of these features are or can be highlighted. Emphasizing or focusing on […]

Lenovo Flex 11 Chromebook review: Tough, durable and inexpensive

The Lenovo Flex 11 is one tough SOB.

The Lenovo Flex 11 Chromebook is a consumer version of Lenovo’s very solid Chromebooks For Education products. It’s built tough — rated to take a 2.4-foot drop and has a water resistant keyboard tray to keep spills out, but still comes in at a very reasonable $ 279.99. Finding a “rugged” Chromebook that’s not EDU branded and uber-expensive isn’t a common thing, so we were instantly interested.

After a  [Read More…]

Moto E4 review: Keeping it simple

The Moto E4 is one of the best prepaid deals you can get right now.

The Moto E4 is fine. It’s not particularly good looking or powerful, nor is it filled with features. When you think a generic smartphone, this is kind of what you think of.

And yet, for $ 129, I would probably recommend it, warts and all, over any other phone. At $ 70 on Verizon’s prepaid service, it’s an absolute steal. Here’s why.

TYLT Energi Pro review: MrMobile’s favorite battery backpack

I knew I needed to review the TYLT Energi Pro when I first saw Daniel Bader rocking one on an overseas trip a few months back – and even though he’s beaten me to the official take with his own excellent review, I’ve gathered some followup thoughts on the backpack in the weeks since. See, the TYLT Energi Pro isn’t just any old backpack. It’s a bag with a built-in 20,100 mAh battery beefy enough to recharge your tablets,  [Read More…]

Monument Valley: A short but sweet masterpiece (Review)

Every now and then, a developer comes out with a game so good that it gains critical acclaim by the industry and shapes it moving forward. Remember Flappy Bird? It wasn’t a complicated game at all (from a technical point of view) but it gained so much traction in the industry that even the developer […]

MrMobile’s OnePlus 5 video review

Almost a year ago to the day, I kicked off the MrMobile YouTube channel with a review of the OnePlus 3 – so it seems fitting that MrMobile’s one-year anniversary lands alongside the debut of the next phone in the family formerly known as “flagship killers.”

Like its immediate predecessor the OnePlus 3T, the OnePlus 5 is better described as a killer flagship, with top-of-the-line specs packed into a very affordable package. That’s OnePlus’s game, after all, and the  [Read More…]

Xiaomi Mi 6 review: A new beginning

If you’re willing to look past the lack of a 3.5mm jack, the Mi 6 is a fantastic phone.

Quick take:

The Mi 6 gets a lot of things right — powerful hardware in the form of a Snapdragon 835, dual rear cameras with 2x optical zoom, and a gorgeous metal-and-glass design, all at a price that’s nearly half that of the Galaxy S8. The phone isn’t without its drawbacks: availability is limited to China, and there’s  [Read More…]
