Honor View 10 Review: The budget flagship king?

If you’re looking for a premium smartphone in 2018, you have two choices.  You can walk into a carrier store and throw down $ 800+ on a name you know like Samsung, LG, or Apple. Or, you can save a bit of dough, go with someone you may not have heard of and reap the rewards.

Today, we’re talking about one of those less known phone companies, Huawei. Huawei is a Chinese company that produces some of the best phones  [Read More…]

Mi Laser Projector review: Xiaomi’s costliest product is also its best

Xiaomi’s laser projector trounces every other product in this category.

Xiaomi sells over 2,000 items in China, and one of the more interesting products it launched last year was the Mi Laser Projector. The ultra-short throw projector can cast up to a 150-inch image, and it comes with an array of features that differentiates it from the rest of the options in this segment.

Above all else, Xiaomi as a brand is associated with offering incredible value  [Read More…]

Caseology Skyfall Case for Samsung Galaxy S9+ review: Shines bright and smudges fast

Take your clear case game to the next level with the Skyfall’s shiny metallic bumpers.

Android phones have come a long way from matte plastic backs. Android flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S9+ sport shimmering, mirror-finish glass backs, and while we all need a little extra grip and protection for our $ 800 phone, why cover up perfection? Now, there are plenty of clear cases on the market today — including a slim Liquid Crystal case we  [Read More…]

Samsung Galaxy S7 Oreo review: What to expect from your final software update

Getting up to the modern era is mostly good — with a little speed slowdown trade-off.

After what feels like an inordinately long wait, many versions of the Galaxy S7 have received their Android 8.0 Oreo update. Considering that the phone launched back on Android 6.0 marshmallow, Oreo is the final major platform update for this line, bringing it up to the Galaxy S9’s software level before being left to live out the rest of its life  [Read More…]

Vivo X21 review: A bold leap forward

The Vivo X21 shows that in-display fingerprint sensors work reliably.

Even if you haven’t come across a Vivo phone, there’s a high possibility that you have heard of the brand: Vivo advertises heavily in the English Premier League, and has picked up the title rights for the FIFA World Cup. It also signed up with Marvel Studios to highlight its products in the MCU, so if you’ve seen any of the recent Avengers movies, you would’ve noticed  [Read More…]

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

The Maker Hart Just Mixer M  [Read More…]

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…]
