Huawei’s Mate 10 shows its face in public for the first time

This is the Huawei Mate 10, and it looks familiar.

We’re nearing the end of the year — not in terms of months, but in terms of phone releases. Most companies want to get their devices into the hands of consumers by the holiday season, which only gives them until about mid- to late-October to do so. After the Pixels launch on October 4, the final flagship to look forward to (at least that we know of) is Huawei’s  [Read More…]

It’s way passed time to bring back Google Glass

The next step for Google feels like it should be obvious, but for some reason it’s not going to happen.

I was a Day One Google Glass user. In fact, my thoughts on Google Glass were the first thing I ever published here at Android Central. I complain every now and again about how the tech got a bad rap and Google shouldn’t have backed down on a consumer model, but today there’s a lot more to  [Read More…]

Grab a year of IPVanish for just $39 for a very limited time, a 50% savings

VPNs are way more common now than they were even just one year ago. People who care about their privacy (which should be everyone) have begun connecting to a VPN everytime they use the internet, but picking the right VPN provider can be a hard task. There are a ton of services out there, and they range in price from free to $ 100 or more a year. If you haven’t already settled into a VPN, today may be the  [Read More…]

Sony XZ Premium review: MrMobile’s mirror-plated time machine

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is the first Sony smartphone to hit MrMobile’s review roster, and it’s not playing around. It’s not every day you review a phone with a Snapdragon 835 and a 4K HDR display crammed into an ostentatious and water-resistant mirrored chassis, after all. But I’ve always found 4K screens on smartphones to be serious overkill, and the XZ Premium’s high price combined with Sony’s bizarre legal troubles that force it to disable fingerprint scanners on  [Read More…]

What you’re looking for will also affect when you should buy. Buyers looking for a  [Read More…]
