• Amazon Echo Show offers a necessary element to smart speakers

    When Amazon unveiled the Amazon Echo, a smart speaker that features Amazon’s virtual AI named “Alexa”, the idea caught on quickly. The Echo propelled the idea of a “smart home”, and at a reasonably affordable price to boot. Since then, Amazon has released the cheaper Echo Dot, and even Google joined in with the introduction […]

  • Microsoft wants to make iOS and Android even better

    I recently talked about the reason that I’m “loyal” to Apple, insofar that I’m most comfortable using iOS and there are some features that I just don’t want to give up (Control Center) by switching to another platform. The most troubling part of this is the fact that I still want to switch. I’m not completely immune […]

  • Flagship is to power as budget is to battery: Which one is best for you?

    Not too long ago, if you wanted to purchase a functional smartphone there was no doubt about it: you would need to shell out some fat stacks for the best of the best. While saving money on a cheaper smartphone was an option, it wasn’t necessarily a great option; most lower end smartphones exhibited terrible […]

  • Are you using Google Allo?

    Recently, Google unveiled a new feature for one of its messaging apps, Allo, that allows users to create animated cartoon stickers of themselves. It’s a very Google solution to what other apps make really simple, but the end result is actually pretty interesting. Using a selfie you take, Allo will scan the image, use machine […]

  • T-Mobile ONE, while unlimited, is still too limited

    It’s always a good idea to be mindful of better rates for just about any service you use. Internet, car insurance, interest rates, and even phone service are all things that I tend to check up on every so often just to make sure that I feel that I’m getting the most out of my […]

  • Do you talk to your digital personal assistant in public?

    My local theater plays classic films on Tuesdays throughout the year, and most recently it played Jaws so, as I have every year in recent times, I planted myself in a seat and watched my favorite movie on the big screen. I got there early, as I usually do, and it was pretty packed, which was nice […]

  • Are you hyped for the Galaxy Note 8?

    It’s a safe bet that no other smartphone will be as closely monitored this year as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8. Although the Galaxy S8 and S8 plus launch went off without a hitch, consumers may not be as forgiving concerning Samsung’s other flagship, which became infamous last year for its explosive issues. Cast in the shadows […]

  • Should Nokia be the “new Nexus”?

    It’s only been a little over half a year since HMD Global resurrected the Nokia brand in mobile, and although the once colossal brand has had a relatively quiet start, a recent release by HMD Global suggests that it has its sights set on a bright future for the Nokia by having a close relationship with Google, […]

  • How important is the location of the fingerprint sensor?

    I love fingerprint sensors. Generally speaking, I find the fingerprint sensor to be one of the best features of modern day smartphones. Although I wouldn’t consider it a great measure of security on its own, in addition to other security methods it’s a semi-secure and convenient feature for unlocking smartphones. And as smartphones have evolved, […]

  • Should LG ditch the secondary display in the V30?

    On August 31, LG has announced that it’s going to announce something new. It’s technically possible the company could just surprise everyone and announce a new tablet or something, but the safest bet is it’s going to be a new smartphone. A new flagship phone, too, and under the V-series banner. Rumor has it that […]

  • I wish the iPad Pro supported 3D Touch

    Apple is one of those companies that, while they announce new things for their hardware every year, some new features are always pointed out just a bit more than others. Some just get the lime light a bit longer, or hear more zealous presenters doling out information regarding the new feature. We’ve seen it with […]
