From the ease of installation to the low monthly costs, the Ring Alarm system ticks a lot of boxes on paper that people will be looking  [Read More…]

Ventev Powercell 6010+ review: The best-designed battery pack I’ve ever used

This brilliantly designed backup battery is all you need to keep your phone charged.

What are the features you look for in a portable battery pack? Do you prioritize battery capacity, or is an ultra-portable design most important? For me, it’s important to find a balance of portability and functionality, with a capacity that’s big enough to easily charge my phone.

The Ventev Powercell 6010+ has proven itself to be reliable with features I simply haven’t seen  [Read More…]

Meater review: Your secret ally to a perfectly grilled steak

As we get more and more “connected” around the house, our favorite place to see new smart devices is probably the kitchen. Whether dealing with someone who is adept and knows their way around the room or someone looking to learn more, today’s connected kitchen offers a lot of opportunities — and fun gadgets. One such device is the Meater, a wireless smart meat thermometer.

Ask five people how they like their steak prepared and you may receive five different  [Read More…]

Sony WF-SP700N review: MrMobile finally tries “truly wireless”

Summertime is no time for over-ear headphones (as the sweat smears on my QC-35 earpads will attest). So when Sony asked me to review its new truly wireless WF-SP700N earbuds, the timing was perfect. Despite their unimaginative branding, these are actually good sport earbuds, with an acoustic noise canceling feature that’s a rarity in wearables this small. The WF-SP700N also gives you the option to disable that ANC to allow external sound though, keeping you from getting  [Read More…]

OnePlus 6 review: The best value smartphone of 2018

OnePlus’ creed has always been to deliver smartphones packing the latest technology at an affordable price. When the OnePlus One came out in 2014, it quickly became a wild success.

It was a hard-edged phone with a backside covered in sandpaper. It offered high-end components and the freedom for nerds to tinker around with the phone’s software.

Four years later, the Chinese indie brand has unveiled the OnePlus 6, and it’s the company’s most mature phone to date. Yes, it  [Read More…]

LG G7 ThinQ review: Wide angle, narrow appeal

LG’s new flagship is rarely exciting, but look past that and you’ll find a great little phone with an audiovisual focus.

The G7 may be a tough sell at its $ 750 launch price, but there’s not much to complain about here. The new LG flagship gets most of the fundamentals right, and offers stand-out features in the form of a Quad DAC-powered headphone jack, and the best wide-angle camera.

Maxboost Google Pixel 2 Wallet Case review: Cheap, stylish, and functional

Maxboost’s case holds three cards, cash, and nice faux leather finish.

No matter who you are, chances are you’ve got a wallet for storing your plastic/cash and a case for keeping your phone safe while on the go. These two things work great on their own, but if you want to live an ultra-minimalistic life, picking up a wallet case gives you the freedom of never having to carry a wallet again while still having a safe  [Read More…]

OPPO R15 Pro review: Red devil

The R15 Pro marries exquisite design with top-notch performance.

OPPO has managed to swiftly rise up the ranks in the smartphone segment over the last three years through a combination of aggressive marketing and a vast network of offline stores. Unlike brands like Xiaomi, which primarily sells phones online, OPPO built its business by focusing on the retail industry, opening tens of thousands of retail stores across Asian markets. The strategy has paid off handsomely for the  [Read More…]

Nuheara IQbuds Dynamic True Wireless Earbuds Review

Headphones are generally simple devices, with the purpose of intimately pumping tunes into our ears. In recent years, we’ve seen several updates to the traditional formula, such as wire-cut solutions and active noise-cancellation, but the general idea remains.

However, if you’ve taken a deeper look, a couple cool developments have also risen to make the headphone more than what is dictated by its musical roots. The Nuheara IQbuds are one of these innovative selected few.

Totallee Google Pixel 2 Case Review: The perfect case for people that hate cases

Totallee’s slim Pixel 2 case is totally worth your money.

I hate cases. I know they’re important to use and often do a great job at protecting your phone, but I can’t stand the added bulk or weight they usually add. As such, when I came across the Totallee case on Amazon, I knew I had to get my hands on it ASAP.

Totallee designed a case that offers basic protection from small drops and bumps without  [Read More…]
