MWC is here and that means we should get a new wave of Android Wear devices over the coming weeks that tempt us into parting ways with hundreds of dollars for the honor of being attached at the wrist level to our phones. Ahhh, the future. Before we get there, though, we wanted to wrap-up our coverage of the first two Android Wear 2.0 devices that LG and Google introduced to us a couple of weeks ago, the Watch Sport and Watch Style.
Tim has already posted his review of the LG Watch Sport, so be sure to check that out. Today, I’ve got the LG Watch Style review for you, a watch that is certainly on the cheaper end when compared to the Watch Sport, but supposedly equally as important. (more…)
Android Wear 2.0 has finally arrived, and the first two devices to feature it are the LG Watch Sport and Watch Style. Kellen is handling our Watch Style coverage (his review), so it’s my duty to walk you through our time with the Watch Sport. (more…)
So it’s 2017 and unlimited data is officially back at all of the major US carriers. (Don’t even try to tell me that you saw this coming.) It seemed like just days ago we were paying a hundred dollars for 2GB and 4GB of data and having our grandfathered unlimited data plans ripped from our cold, crusty, fingers with the shadiest of moves. But hey, we’re not about to complain that we can all get back on unlimited data for some decent prices. (more…)
Unlike Kellen, I didn’t flash a Developer Preview of Android Wear 2.0 on one of my smartwatches as they were rolling out. I figured I would just wait for it to publicly launch and experience it with a fresh pair of eyes, and I’m happy I did that. (more…)
Verizon is bringing back unlimited data, in case you missed that bit of explosive news on a weekend. From everything we have learned from several sources, plus some direct feedback from Verizon, we think we’ve got the details pretty dialed in on what this new Verizon Unlimited plan is all about. In this post, we’ll try to walk through everything you need to decide whether or not this is the new plan for you. (more…)
With CES long gone and us currently in that few week period between last year’s news and this year’s upcoming excitement, it’s time we take a good long look at Huawei’s latest product for the US, the Mate 9 smartphone. (more…)
The few months in between the end of the holiday season and the end of February the following year are some of my favorites. Because new flagship phone releases almost always come to a stand still during these times, we often get to settle in to a phone and truly get to know it. Instead of jumping from one phone to the next to get the next review out, this is a time where we get to become somewhat of a consumer. It’s kind of fun, actually!
As you can tell from the title, the Google Pixel (the regular, smaller one) has been in my pocket, by my side since I reviewed it back at the end of October. This is the phone that most fits my needs. (more…)
We’ve said it before, but in case you somehow missed it, we have been using SHIELD TV in our homes since 2015 and we love it. Back then, if you were looking for an awesome Android TV experience, plus a sweet gaming experience, there was no better choice. Now, in 2017, NVIDIA is back with an updated set-top box, looking to reclaim its own thrown in the Android TV ecosystem. (more…)
