Alcatel 1X review: It’s Android Go time

You can have everything Android has to offer for just $ 100.

Smartphones are expensive. They have always been expensive, but as they approach the $ 1,000 mark it becomes more obvious. In the long-term, maybe $ 1,000 isn’t too much to pay for a year or more of the convenience and helpfulness that a smartphone has to offer, but not everyone has that kind of money to spend. The good news is that several companies are  [Read More…]

Maker Hart Just Mixer M Review

While you can go out and spend a boatload of money on various pieces of equipment, you’ll always need accessories. This may range from just a single microphone, or flash for videos, but there’s always a need for something.

Even after you purchase the big-ticket items, there are others that just help improve the general experience. That’s where the Maker Hart Just Mixer M comes into play, at least for videographers or podcasters.

Overview

Spigen Rugged Armor case for Galaxy S9+ review: Low cost, rugged protection

For $ 15, there isn’t a rugged case that delivers quite as much value as Spigen’s offering.

Spigen is known for making affordable cases that hold up to a ton of abuse over the years, so it’s no wonder that its products are well-regarded. The Rugged Armor has been my go-to case for a few years now thanks to its lightweight design and rugged protection, so when I was looking to pick up a case for my  [Read More…]

JBL Reflect Contour 2 Wireless Sport Earbuds review: Step up your wireless audio

Wireless earbuds today take a lot of shapes and sizes. What started out as the around-the-neck form has turned into completely wireless earpieces. But, while the latter is more ergonomic and convenient, none have been able to really succeed, with considerable compromise to crucial aspects like battery life, connectivity reliability, and price. This is all while wired “wireless” alternative have gotten better and better, making their presence in the market still very relevant.

In light of this, we’re checking out  [Read More…]

RHA MA650 headphone review: Made for Android, made with care

A three-button remote that works with most Android phones.

Headphone jacks are disappearing, and headphones themselves are all going Bluetooth. Right? Sort of, but that doesn’t tell the whole story.

In 2016, Bluetooth headphone sales surpassed those of their wired counterparts for the first time, and are largely responsible for growing the headphone industry as a whole. And that industry is growing — dramatically. But one thing is certain: headphones — cheap, expensive, wired, wireless — are  [Read More…]

Nanoleaf Remote review: The Smart Home conversation starter

Fun, fancy lights deserve a fun, fancy remote,

AC Score 4

Broadly speaking, the appeal of smart lights has always been the ability to control them intelligently. Whether from an app on your phone or a command delivered to your digital assistant of choice, smart lights are able to offer a massive array of options. And while these lights do a great job walking the  [Read More…]

Nuu Mobile G3 review: Sexy, with a side of substance

As we hit the middle of 2018, one of the most common words used to describe a phone is “premium”. But, what exactly does that mean, though? A few years back it was used to signal the difference between a plastic, polycarbonate phone from one that was built with a combination of glass and metal.

Replaceable batteries went the way of the dodo bird as phones closed up tightly and incorporated waterproof protection. Indeed, the high end devices of 2015  [Read More…]

Spigen Liquid Crystal case for Galaxy S9 review: A clear winner

Not every case needs to be expensive to be functional and protective.

Since just a few days after I got my Galaxy S9, I’ve been using Samsung’s official Alcantara case and loving it. It’s soft, and it lets me keep the phone mostly protected without sacrificing the premium look and feel. But here’s the thing: I paid $ 50 for a thin case that doesn’t even cover the bottom of the phone.

Cases don’t have to be  [Read More…]

The Kindle Oasis ups the ante for e-readers.

There are plenty of options available if you’re interested in reading e-books. You can pick up an Android tablet for under $ 100, load up the Kindle app, and get started right away. A tablet is a great option for most users as it offers more versatility — you can browse the web, watch YouTube videos, or just play games in addition to reading books.
