Olloclip Multi-Device Clip review

It’s no secret that today’s smartphones are capable of capturing photos which are downright stunning. Whether it’s one lens, a dual-camera setup, front-facing, or rear, the stuff we get from phones is awesome.

No matter how good the final image result is, our handsets still lack some of the manual control we get with traditional cameras. We don’t get the same control over what the phone actually sees. There’s rarely anything in the way of macro, wide-angle, telephoto, or other  [Read More…]

OnePlus 6T India review: Maintaining the status quo — for now

OnePlus is betting on what has worked in the past, but that may not be enough anymore.

OnePlus is continuing with its two-phone launch cycle, and as was the case in previous years, the “T” variant brings updates to the display, and this time we’re also getting a new way to unlock the phone. More importantly, it’s what’s missing on the OnePlus 6T that is fueling the initial conversation around the device — there’s no headphone jack,  [Read More…]

Lara Croft GO shows how to adapt a console franchise to mobile devices (Review)

Unfortunately for the Play Store and mobile gaming in general, there are very few examples of franchises that have transitioned in the right way from console to mobile gaming. Even Nintendo, who succeeded tremendously with Pokemon GO and, to a lesser extent, with Super Mario Run, failed miserably with Miitomo.

Because of that, I mostly avoid games that use household names for mobile games. However, recently finished Tomb Raider for PS3 (yes, the one published in 2013), I wanted to  [Read More…]

Those people have been playing Beat Saber for the PC VR headsets and now it’s the PlayStation VR owners chance to get in on the action.

Beat Saber is a simple  [Read More…]

Ring Video Doorbell 2 review: worth the money?

Smart home products are designed to make our lives easier. They can focus on health, self-improvement, making our lives a little bit easier, or safety. The Ring Video Doorbell 2 is the latter– a safety device designed to help keep your family safe. After a month of using the device, I would definitely say that I feel safer in my home.

First, let’s get to the basics. What exactly is a Ring Video Doorbell? You may have overheard people talking  [Read More…]

Skagen Falster 2 review: A gorgeous, flawed smartwatch that’s easy to love

The best-looking Android smartwatch, but not the best value.

The Android smartwatch ecosystem is improbably competitive again, after a couple years of stagnation where the Wear OS, née Android Wear, ecosystem was practically left for dead.

The invigoration came not from tech companies like Motorola or LG, which led the charge over four years ago, but from Fossil Group — owners of so many well-known watch brands it’s hard to keep track — and other lifestyle companies  [Read More…]
