Lenovo Yoga Chromebook: MrMobile is in awe at the size of this lap(top)

Bias alert: when I see the word “Chromebook,” normally I think either low-cost low-capability devices for schoolkids … or super-premium, super-portable Pixelbooks for, well, Google employees. The notion of a massive desktop-replacement laptop never enters my mind – but Lenovo’s Yoga Chromebook is just that.

The Yoga Chromebook is an utter monster of a machine, with a four-pound aluminum chassis that looks big enough to accommodate a 17-inch display (though it settles for a 15.6″ panel instead).  [Read More…]

Samsung Galaxy Note 9: Which storage size should I buy?

The answer is simple for most people.

Samsung pulled out the stops for the power-users with the launch of the Galaxy Note 9. Three of the biggest things spec hounds were looking for all received significant improvements over the last generation: battery, storage, and memory. At the same time, the price went up — and in the case of the 512GB model, it went way up. Most people who were originally excited about the idea of a  [Read More…]

Google Play Store shrunk down app size by up to 65%, so you can install more on your device

You’ve might have noticed there’s a trend of Lite apps for Android devices. In recent times, a handful of major apps have released stripped-down, barebones alternatives to their original apps. These Lite versions allow users to save space on your phone because they weight next to nothing. They are also a lot faster to download.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is the perfect size for a phone

Not too big and not too small — depending on who you ask.

Samsung’s Galaxy S9 is a great phone that gets a lot of stuff right. Its display is stunning, performance is as fast as can be, and the cameras regularly capture gorgeous photos/video. Despite all of that, one aspect that’s really stuck out to a lot of our forum users is the phone’s design.

Even though the Galaxy S9 has a 5.8-inch screen, the 18:9  [Read More…]

OnePlus 6: Which RAM and storage size should you buy?

We all like big numbers, but the extra cost doesn’t always make sense.

OnePlus has grown a bit from its days of only offering one phone in single color with no further configuration options. The OnePlus 6 now comes in three different colors, and with three distinct models that have different amounts of RAM and storage. Most people will just buy the base model to keep the cost down, but if you’re considering paying a bit more  [Read More…]

How to change the screen size in PlayStation VR Cinematic Mode

Become completely immersed

PlayStation VR’s Cinematic Mode is basically everything you would see in a ‘normal’ PlayStation 4 experience but seen through your headset. Regular, non-VR adapted games and apps can still be viewed through the headset in this mode, which is good since there’s a lot of times you’ll need to access things that aren’t specifically VR.

It’s like looking at a big cinema screen, but you can change how big the screen is for a  [Read More…]

How to change font size and display density on the Galaxy S9

The Galaxy S9 comes with a nice, big screen, but how much actually fits on it is up to you.

Having a big screen, you can fit a lot onto the screen of the Samsung Galaxy S9, but fitting a whole lot on your screen doesn’t mean much if you can’t comfortably see or use what’s on screen. My eyesight isn’t perfect, and so even though I’m not even pushing 30, I crank up the text size  [Read More…]
