Sony XZ Premium review: MrMobile’s mirror-plated time machine

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is the first Sony smartphone to hit MrMobile’s review roster, and it’s not playing around. It’s not every day you review a phone with a Snapdragon 835 and a 4K HDR display crammed into an ostentatious and water-resistant mirrored chassis, after all. But I’ve always found 4K screens on smartphones to be serious overkill, and the XZ Premium’s high price combined with Sony’s bizarre legal troubles that force it to disable fingerprint scanners on  [Read More…]

Review: The Moshi IonBank is a fashion forward battery bank

I don’t know about you, but my phone dying adds a great deal of stress to my life. I’ve gotten so used to having my phone around to do every little thing I need that suddenly being disconnected feels foreign. I use my phone for everything from turning on the lights, to changing the temperature […]

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 review: 6 months later

The Redmi Note 4 has held up really well after 6 months of use.

6 months after its release, the Redmi Note 4 is still one of the best phones in the budget segment in India. There are plenty of options in this category — the Moto G5 Plus is Motorola’s best effort yet, and the Honor 6X is similarly great. Then we have the likes of Smartron, with its sophomore effort considerably better than its first  [Read More…]

This is the thinnest Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus case on the market (Giveaway + Review)

I’ve been on a bit of a phone case kick recently. I’ve never been big into protecting my devices as I seem to go through them so fast that they never end up picking up wear and tear. I’ve decided to slow down on new devices at this point in my life so I’m doing […]

The Silent Age: Point-and-click done right (Review)

In an era where endless games with pixel graphics abound in the Play Store, it is always pleasant to find developers who focus on providing a different, rewarding, and immersive experience. Even though people think that polished, refined games are reserved for consoles, we’ve seen through the years that developers can also come up with […]

Samsung Galaxy S8 review: Three months later

This is how Samsung’s 2017 flagship has held up after three months of use.

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are still top-of-mind for those looking to buy a flagship phone today, so it’s hard to believe they’ve actually been available for a full three months already. Our initial review was published on April 18, and I’ve been using the phone since that week. Naturally I’ve hopped around to other phones in that time, but continued coming back  [Read More…]

The New Moto E4 is a budget-friendly Nougat machine (review)

The Android spectrum seems to be shrinking more and more with each passing year. Gone are the days between true top-tier flagship (us old-timers used to say “hero”) phones and the budget-friendly devices made for the masses. Motorola– I mean, now Lenovo, is a shining example of this increasing parity in the smartphone market. From […]

Casio ProTrek Smart review: Adventure watch

Casio gets a lot more attention than some other watchmakers on the MrMobile channel, and that’s because it’s one of the few companies doing something different with Android Wear. Last year, I reviewed the company’s feature-packed but pricey WSD-F10 outdoor smartwatch, and this summer’s sequel has ditched the clunky model number for a (slightly) streamlined brand name.

Much else is familiar though; the ProTrek Smart keeps the chunky frame, water resistance and the high price point – not to  [Read More…]

Huawei Watch 2 Classic review: Leather is better

With the Huawei Watch 2 Classic, a metal body and leather strap make all the difference.

It’s no secret that we weren’t big fans of the Huawei Watch 2, a plastic-and-ceramic successor to a metal legacy that left us feeling dejected and a little confused over the company’s seemingly half-baked plans for wearables.

Well, after having used the Huawei Watch 2 Classic for some time, I can safely say the issue lies largely with branding and marketing  [Read More…]
