The company’s two budget offerings, the Moto G series and the even-cheaper Moto E family, just got refreshed last month with three new models each.

The better phone isn’t always the better deal.

If you’re shopping in the sub-$ 300 space, there are few better companies to turn to than Motorola. The Moto G series consistently impresses us with the level of performance and overall value of each of its phones, and the new Moto G6 trio is no exception — though if you live in North America, you’ll only be able to pick up two of the three phones: the Moto  [Read More…]

NVIDIA Shield TV vs. Amazon Fire TV Cube: Which should you buy?

The NVIDIA Shield TV has been the best streaming solution for Android users since 2015, but Amazon is set to take over that top spot in 2018 with the Amazon Fire TV Cube.

I once said that a $ 200 doorbell was a very silly thing. I was very, very wrong. Because the Ring Video Doorbell — as well as the Ring 2 and Ring Pro — has very quickly become one of my favorite connected home products. It’s not inexpensive, and it’s not perfect. But it’s paid for  [Read More…]

Earlier this month, Motorola refreshed its endurance-focused Z Play series with the Moto Z3 Play. While it’s more a mid-range device than a true flagship for the company (that title is likely reserved for the Moto Z3 or Moto Z3 Force), the Z3 Play brings some much-needed modernization to the design language we’ve seen for the last three years.
