The iPhone 11 has great video features, and that’s good news for everybody

No matter your feelings towards iOS as a platform, you can’t deny that the iPhone takes phenomenal video. Stabilization, color, dynamic range … all of it has been consistently great on iPhones for years, often outpacing even Android phones that take subjectively better photos. With today’s announcement of the iPhone 11, Apple just knocked things up another notch.

In case you missed the live stream, here’s the short of it: with the iPhone 11, Apple is finally adding  [Read More…]

That’s my phone, I don’t know you

Smartphones can do just about anything these days — did you know they can even make phone calls? You’ve probably gotten your fair share of spam calls in the last few years, and many carriers are actively working to prevent spam and “robocalls” from happening, but some people don’t want to receive calls at all. Whether you use VoIP services, carry a work phone that only needs access to data, or you prefer texting over calling, here’s how  [Read More…]

The Galaxy S10e is currently under $550, and that’s the best deal in town

$ 200 off your favorite small smartphone.

I’ve no qualms about recommending the Galaxy S10e as the de facto S10 in the company’s extensive (and growing) lineup this year. The S10+ is the flagship, yes, but aside from screen size and battery life has no appreciable benefits over the S10 (the second front-facing camera doesn’t count, in my opinion). The S10 itself is a great phone with an awesome design, but it’s let down by its mediocre  [Read More…]

Amazon unveils a new Echo Dot Kids Edition that’s already being discounted

Amazon has quietly unveiled an all-new Echo Dot Kids Edition which features a new, yet familiar, design, and color options unlike anything we’ve seen the company do before. At first glance, you may mistake this for a regular 3rd-gen Echo Dot, until you see the new bright Rainbow color scheme that’s being offered. Details surrounding what’s new are a bit limited right now, but Amazon does say that this speaker, like the latest Echo Dot, is 70% louder, and there  [Read More…]

Their first release is Part Time UFO, a premium crane simulator/puzzle game that has you playing as a little UFO who’s looking for work on earth by using a claw to help humans out  [Read More…]

Get a case that’s light, lovely, and slim as your Galaxy S10+

Not everyone wants a tank of a case like the ArmadilloTek Vanguard, but if you’re going to spend $ 1,000 on a Samsung Galaxy S10+, you need at least some kind of case on it. Slim cases can offer some drop protection as well as grip and a guard against everyday scuffs, scrapes, and smudges. These are the slim cases we love hte most.

Doogee S80 review: An Android that’s also a walkie-talkie

Over the past few years, there’s been a clear trend across the smartphone industry to go thinner, lighter and more compact. If you remember, we were surprised when phones with 10 mm profiles started to emerge, but now 8 mm smartphones are the norm.

So in the era of super skinny smartphones, it’s indeed quite unusual to stumble upon a device with a heavier frame.

The Doogee S80 is one such bulky smartphone, but is by no means the only  [Read More…]

Give the gift of a portable power bank that’s actually portable

Most battery packs and power banks are liars! They say they’re portable, but what they actually are is heavy, huge, and hopeless. Most need a backpack or a purse to carry them around — or else they might pants you on a busy, crowded street. If your portable battery pack doesn’t fit on your person to carry it around while you’re charging at a sporting event, on an all-day hike, or in a two-hour line at Disneyland, then your power  [Read More…]
