BlackBerry DTEK60 review: A great Android phone and the best BlackBerry

The BlackBerry DTEK60 isn’t getting much attention outside of the hardcore BB audience. That’s a shame because it’s one of the best phones of 2016.

No, I haven’t lost my marbles. The BlackBerry DTEK60 really is that good.

Like a lot of Android fans and people who write words about phones for a living, I chuckled and instantly dismissed the DTEK60 before it even arrived. BlackBerry having Alcatel make a phone for them and deigning to  [Read More…]

Honor 8 community review: Simply the best small phone right now

What do three Android Central community members think of the Honor 8? Here it is, in their own words!

The Honor 8 is a great phone. We’ve previewed it and reviewed it; we’ve spent time with its camera and evaluated it against other phones in its price category.

Oppo R9s review: An important step forward

Oppo makes some small but important steps forward with its latest handset bound for Asia.

Without making much of a splash in the west, Oppo has found itself towards the top of the list of smartphone manufacturers. While the top two, Samsung and Apple, are still a ways out, Oppo is now a constant presence around the number four spot, and that’s no small achievement.

Like many other phone makers from China, we’ve seen significant improvements  [Read More…]

Google Pixel review: Jerry’s opinion

Not enough words have been written about the Google Pixel. At least not by me

The Pixel is one of the phones on a very short list of candidates for a place in my pocket and I’ve taken my time to decide how much I love or hate it after relying on it for a little while. We don’t always get that luxury and each of us has based an opinion too early on something because  [Read More…]

But then I encounter games as Star Knight and my hopes return. If more games were like Star Knight and less like these short attention

Here They Lie review: Screaming forever

Muted colors, and atmospheric music will have your pulse racing in no time.

Here they Lie is a full length horror experience developed for PlayStation VR, and it is unsettling and terrifying in equal measure. It uses a combination of creepy music that will put you on edge, along with a mostly abandoned city that will have you peering around corners and over ledges.

When the game gets started, things look pretty normal. You board a  [Read More…]
