Do you wish companies would stop re-designing their phones every year?

Having a chat with the AC forums.

The Android smartphone market is one that can be difficult to keep up with. Year after year, companies push out new handsets with subtle or major tweaks compared to its predecessor. Whether it be slimmer bezels, a slightly thinner body, or a new style for a camera bump, many of these changes are often in the design department.

A new design is one of those things we’ve come to expect  [Read More…]

What’s on your Pixel 5 wish list?

Let’s have a chat with the AC forums.

We aren’t expecting Google to announce the Pixel 5 until much later in the year, but as the story often goes, that hasn’t stopped people from creating wish lists of what they want to see in the upcoming flagship.

The Pixel 4 brought some great ideas to the table, such as a 90Hz display and dual cameras, but there are plenty of areas in which Google can improve with  [Read More…]

These are the games we wish would be announced for Playstation 5

The heart wants what the heart wants. And to quote Han Solo: Never tell me the odds.

None of these games have been announced in any official capacity, but that doesn’t stop us from wanting them anyway. We all have our favorite series we want to see continue or a franchise just starting out that didn’t get a fair shake. Everyone has different tastes — and non-realistic expectations. Whether it’s a pipe dream or a sequel almost  [Read More…]

I hate big phones, but I really wish I went XL with the Pixel 4

I like everything about my Pumpkin Spice Pixel 4 except for its crappy battery life. I should have gone extra-large.

It seems like everyone (well, almost everyone) hates the Pixel 4. That’s OK and hating things you never planned to buy is the secret fuel that powers the tech side of the internet. I’m not one of those people and think the Pixel 4 was a great upgrade from the 3 in almost every way. It’s just  [Read More…]

God, I wish I was sleeping under this Black Friday bed sheet deal right now

Quit counting sheep and slip under some cooling new sheets!

I don’t know about you, but I’m very particular about the sheets I sleep under. If the sheets are too stiff, they won’t conform to your body and let a draft in. If they’re too grippy, they won’t slide properly and you’ll get tangled up in them. If they’re too thick, you’ll overheat in the middle of the night. I should know: I’ve bought sheets this year that unfortunately  [Read More…]

Modern Dad’s Black Friday wish list

I’ve been playing with some new toys — and these definitely are things I’d look to pick up on sale this holiday season.

I don’t often have buyer’s remorse. If I spend money on something, there’s usually a pretty good reason why. But I do feel a pang of guilt when I buy something knowing full well that it’s going to be on sale sometime soon.

Such is the case with some of my latest procurements, however. The bad  [Read More…]

Project Fi wish list: 3 things that would make me switch

With a few small changes, Project Fi could become unstoppable.

When Google launched Project Fi in April 2015, I signed up for the service as fast as I possibly could. I ordered the starter kit for my Nexus 6 and loved the added benefits, but ultimately went back to my previous service provider after the first month.

Project Fi gets a lot of things right. Its mobile app is wonderfully designed and easy to use, the billing  [Read More…]

Pixel Watch wish list: What we want to see from Google’s first smartwatch

A sleek design, new processor, GPS, oh my!

This October, we’re anticipating that Google will follow its footsteps of the past two years with an event to announce its latest and greatest hardware products. We’ve seen Pixel phones, Home speakers, wireless earbuds and more, and this time around, we’re expecting the company to finally dive into the world of smartwatches.

A rumor popped up in early May suggesting that Google will announce a Pixel Watch alongside the  [Read More…]

I wish there was a Chrome phone

The next big thing needs to have learned from the mistakes of the past.

Now that Chrome is a full-on tablet operating system, there is only one more frontier — the smartphone.

It’s not that anything was changed in Chrome to run it on a tablet. Once Android apps started to run natively in Chrome I knew it was coming. It just took actual companies who make actual products a bit more time to catch up. Maybe  [Read More…]

Pixel 3 wish list: What we want to see from Google’s 2018 flagship

The Pixel 2 is already the best Android phone you can buy, but it can always be better. Here are the things I would like to see in the Pixel 3.

I’ve had my Pixel 2 XL since a week after release, and while a small number of early units had some issues, most owners have reported being happy with their device. I didn’t encounter any of the hardware issues that other early owners experienced, and I’ve been enjoying  [Read More…]
