Starting first with games, the Play Store’s discounting select titles by up to 80% and even running special promotions for in-game items. You’ll  [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…]

Poptel P10 Review: An ultra-rugged phone that’s just adequate

When you look at the lineup of smartphones, all you are likely to see are glass and metal sandwiches. These look absolutely phenomenal, but aren’t exactly the most rugged options on the market.

It seems that ruggedized phones have taken a back seat from most OEM’s. There are still a few options available, and the Poptel P10 is one of the latest to hit the scene.

On the specs-side of things, there’s not really too much to  [Read More…]

The Galaxy Watch doesn’t change much — and that’s okay

Change for the sake of change doesn’t equal progress.

There’s been a lot of talk about Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch lately — well, at least as much talk as there can be about a smartwatch in 2018. Reviews are mostly positive, and despite its lackluster third-party app support (as is typical for Tizen watches), it seems to be a great overall smartwatch with sleek hardware, polished software, and multi-day battery life.

The biggest criticism it’s faced from  [Read More…]

MrMobile: The Galaxy Note 9 is a smartphone that’s actually worth $1000

I get it, you guys: no one thinks smartphones should actually cost a thousand bucks. Motorola kicks out incredible quality on the low end with its Moto G series; the OnePlus 6 delivers a truly exceptional experience at under $ 550; and buying last year’s flagships is another smart way to save coin. Given all these options, it seems ludicrous to drop ten Benjamins for any mobile device.

But the $ 1000 phone isn’t going anywhere, folks  [Read More…]

YouTube Music Premium doesn’t make sense, and that’s exactly why it exists

Audio-only and casting to Google Home are Premium features, but please don’t pay YouTube Music Premium to get them.

Let’s call a spade a spade: This is a price jump.

YouTube made several announcements this month, from the announcement of a “brand-new” YouTube Music to the evolution of YouTube Red into YouTube Premium. There were many things to get excited about in the new YouTube Music, but one thing made absolutely no sense: the pricing for  [Read More…]

HTC is creating an Android phone that’s powered by blockchain

The phone’s called “Exodus” and will be released this October.

It’s no secret at this point that HTC’s seen better days. The company knows how to make a solid smartphone, but consecutive quarterly losses and the departure of its mobile president has resulted in some pretty rough waters. In an attempt to turn the ship around, HTC has announced that it’s creating a…blockchain smartphone.

According to The Next Web, HTC’s blockchain phone will be called Exodus and  [Read More…]
