Google just announced that Android Wear had come to iOS, while also introducing the Apple users of the world to this concept called choice. But along with that announcement, they mentioned that only the LG Watch Urbane, plus a bunch of soon-to-be-released watches were capable of working with iOS at this time, not any older Android Wear devices like the Moto 360. That (unsurprisingly) bummed a number of you out.
To make sure that Google wasn’t fibbing on us a bit, we decided to see if we could pair a Moto 360 with an iPhone on the new Android Wear iOS app. Turns out, it worked! Look! (more…)
The Blackberry Venice, a phone coupled with a slideout physical keyboard and mostly-stock Android, has fanboys of tech giggling like little boys who found their penis for the first time. It’s a keyboard! Like, the ones from back in the day on terrible smartphones that had good keyboards, but there is this thing called Android with it too! BEST. OF. ALL. WORLDS. I loved 2005!
Seriously, though, I haven’t seen this level of nerd hype since…I got nothing. But yeah, it’s everywhere right now, especially thanks to a massive leak out of Tinhte. (more…)
Oh the hype is so real right now. IFA kicks off this week in Berlin and we are expecting to be consumed by a new wave of Android Wear smartwatches. Previous reports have suggested that Motorola, Huawei, ASUS, and LG will all unveil new Android Wear products, a couple of which we think we know about.
Motorola is probably at the top of the list, thanks to the popularity amongst Android enthusiasts over their original Moto 360. I think it’s safe to say that we all want to see the 2nd gen Moto 360 sooner than later. Through a batch of leaked press renders over the weekend, we have some clean new looks to chat about. (more…)
LG, just before the start of IFA, announced a new luxury edition of its Watch Urbane (review). It’s called the Watch Urbane Luxe and it runs $1,200, thanks to its 23-karat gold adornment. (more…)
Most of you probably have a Turbo Charger or two laying around your house, thanks to a handful of decent deals on them over the past year. But do any of you have a fast charger for your car? If not, you can pick-up a brand new, Samsung Fast Charging Car Charger for just $12.99 over at Groupon (USB cable included).
Groupon is claiming that you are receiving some massive 68% discount, but that’s kind of a lie. These chargers can be had at Amazon from around $15 with a USB cable. Still, saving a couple of bucks on an already-cheap fast charger for your car isn’t something to complain about.
Like with the fast wall chargers, you can grab up to 50% charge in just 30 minutes time.
Earlier in the week, Tim, Ron and I all sat down for what turned into episode 90 of the Droid Life Show. It was as good of a time as ever, with topics ranging from all of our thoughts on the Galaxy Note 5 and its S Pen controversy, to why HTC is making an iPhone 6 clone.
We also ran through topics like the new Gear S2, Moto 360 (2nd gen) that has been seen, our images of the DROID MAXX 2, the big Huawei Nexus leak, and why everyone is so confusingly excited about this Blackberry slider phone that runs Android.
You will find both audio and video replays of the show past the break. If you miss us live, feel free to subscribe to us by following one of the links below. (more…)
Figured you were all dying to know. (more…)
After having spent the last couple of months with a Samsung Galaxy S6 in hand, you would think that setting out to review the newly released Galaxy S6 Edge+ would be easy. And it is, actually.
People have joked since this phone’s unveiling that it’s nothing more than a blown up version of the original Galaxy S6 Edge, and as it turns out, that’s really all this is. It’s a Galaxy S6 Edge with a bigger display, battery, and more shine. Otherwise, it’s got the same set of specs for the most part, but it feels slightly different in hand. So yeah, reviewing a phone that’s a bigger version of a previous phone really is as easy as you would think that it would be.
With that in mind, understand that this is going to be somewhat short because well, we’ve already said just about everything there is to say about this phone in two separate reviews here and here. If you haven’t yet, be sure to read both of those, then come back to get the specifics about the differences from those phones to this one.
This is our Galaxy S6 Edge+ review. (more…)
