All of that sounds cool, but this game was obviously designed with a mobile gamer’s short attention  [Read More…]

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite review: You should just buy an iPad

An excellent value that comes with a big catch.

When’s the last time you thought about buying an Android tablet? If you’re like me, it’s probably been a hot minute. The market for Android tablets used to be ripe with competition, with plentiful choice available whether you wanted something cheap, ultra-powerful, or just plain weird (I’m looking at you, Sony Tablet P).

In 2020, Android tablets just aren’t what they used to be. The market is mostly  [Read More…]

More people should be looking to ditch their unlimited data plan

Unlimited plans are simple, but now’s a great time to evaluate whether you actually need one.

The advent of unlimited data plans in the U.S., taking off starting in 2017, has simplified billing and relieved stress for a ton of people. Per-gigabyte data plans started to seem antiquated — and potentially expensive — as we headed toward a future of video calls, multiplayer gaming, sharing huge photo and video files, and all-streaming media consumption.

Every messaging app should steal Slack’s sweet new UI

This is an ingenious way to address issues with gestures overlapping.

It’s no secret that people have frustrations with Android 10‘s gesture navigation, particularly the back gesture — and phones with curved screen edges have only exacerbated the problem. Apps that rely on slide-in drawers can be really tough to use, and when that’s a core part of the interface it can slow you down dramatically.

But this week, I received a much-needed ray of hope for  [Read More…]
