Ecovacs Deebot 601 review: Robo-vacuuming with Android and Amazon Echo

In a world of useless IoT tech, is a robotic vacuum cleaner really worth your time and effort? Ecovacs made me a bit of a believer.

The world is full of superfluous connected tech which is supposed to make our lives easier, but often, well, doesn’t. As such, when I had the opportunity to try out Ecovacs Deebot 601 robotic vacuum cleaner, I was a tad skeptical. However, I must say that the company has made  [Read More…]

Razer Raiju Mobile Gaming Controller review: Get a grip

This is the Bluetooth controller dreams are made of.

Mobile game developers in general still seem somewhat hesitant to include proper support for Bluetooth controls. Sometimes it just doesn’t work with the style of game, but then there are games that would play so much better and be more fun if you didn’t have to fight against the often-problematic touchscreen controls.

Since entering the smartphone gaming industry with its first Razer Phone, Razer has been quietly raising  [Read More…]

OnePlus 6T review

Over the years, OnePlus has released phone after phone with flagship-level specs and power at a fraction of the price you’d expect. The OnePlus 6T is the latest in the line, and naturally it comes packed with stellar performance, as well as a great camera and a new style of notch.

And even though prices for the latest model have crept up to $ 550, which is quite different from the super affordable price of the first OnePlus phone, the  [Read More…]

ASUS ROG Phone review: A gaming phone that actually deserves the name

Finally, a complete thought instead of an obvious cash grab.

If you’d asked me two months ago what my least favorite smartphone trend in the last couple of years was, I’d have said the rise of the “gaming phone” was pretty close to the top. And a lot of that has to do with the minimal effort that went into creating what I we’re supposed to believe is a premium experience for gamers. But when you sit  [Read More…]

In Adventure of Priestess, your biggest enemy is the game’s translation (Review)

Browsing through some deals, I found a small little game called Adventure of Priestess. It seemed cool: a RPG with pixelated graphics and sprites that resembled cats. It was being offered for free, so I went for it. It has 4.4 stars in the Play Store, so I figured it should be good, right? Play Store ratings are always a reliable source of information, right?

Developer: SoftCone Price: $ 0.99

Overview

In Adventure of Priestess, you “control” five different  [Read More…]

BlackBerry Key2 LE Review: The Budget Throwback We Could Have Skipped

BlackBerry has found new life over the last 2 years under the close partnership with hardware maker TCL. During that time, we’ve seen two fan-favorite devices that return BlackBerry smartphones to its roots with full QWERTY keyboards: The KeyOne and the latest Key2. While they’ve both been well received, they were not exactly budget-friendly, but BlackBerry and TCL have set out to fix this with the BlackBerry Key2 LE.

Unfortunately, they may have missed the mark with the LE model.  [Read More…]

MrMobile’s New Favorite Headphones: Sony WH-1000XM3 Review

The WH-1000XM3 is Sony’s newest pair of noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones. In addition to sporting a brand name that only a computer could love, the “Mark 3s” have an industrial design that doesn’t set them apart from their forerunners; they’re leaning heavily on features that have been around for a few years; and they cost $ 350. When my review unit arrived, I felt certain that I’d be longing for my Bose QC35s in no time at all.

ZTE Blade Max View review

After some time on the sidelines, Chinese manufacturer ZTE is back in the US. Staging a comeback of sorts, the phone maker has seen its fair share of troubles after running afoul of the government for doing business with Iran. With that in the rear view mirror, and a promise to keep things on the up-and-up, ZTE is ready to tackle the unlocked market again in the United States.

One of its first efforts as it dips its toes in  [Read More…]

Get a taste of royal power with Reigns (Review)

Have you ever wondered what would you do if you controlled a kingdom? Would you govern for your people or for the money? Would you prefer to do ethical deeds that take a toll on your kingdom’s finances, or accept some money even if that means the citizens will look you in a bad way? What about the army? The church? In Reigns, you get full control of your lands, and need to make decisions in order to keep several  [Read More…]
