Hey, would you look at that – the official Nexus 7 dock is real! I say that for a couple of reasons actually, mostly over the fact that Nexus accessories are always on display during unveilings, yet almost never make it to customers hands or become any sort of a reality outside of Google’s campus. The second reason being that we have seen this thing push through delay after delay before finally appearing on random electronics outlets (which I purchased this one from). Enough complaining, though, let’s talk about the dock and its $40 price tag. (more…)
The review of Portenzo’s awesome Nexus 7 covers way back in the day got me thinking that I’d like a case of my own for my tablet. I wanted to see what other good quality cases were out there though, and many people suggested that I check out Treegloo if I was looking for a good bookcase. After a
long small delay it has finally arrived and it’s about time to give this case a once over. (more…)
Last week, during a quest to find the best Nexus 4 case, I found an option from one of our favorite case companies, Rearth. Their Ringke SLIM for the Nexus 4 was available on Amazon for $9.99 in a variety of colors, so naturally, I jumped on it. Unfortunately, the original version of the SLIM had some fit issues near the volume rocker, making it a bit uncomfortable to use. But thankfully, Rearth didn’t waste time in releasing a revised version with optimal fit. This new version showed up in a set on my doorstep yesterday, so let’s talk about it. (more…)
When the bumper case for the Nexus 4 went back on sale earlier in the week, I caved in and bought one. After having a well-documented, not-so-awesome time with the glass on my first Nexus 4, I decided that this time around I would do everything in my power to protect the second one. So, bumper case we go. The most surprising part about it may be the fact that it arrived already, as in, a day and a half after ordering it. Not bad.
So what do I think? Well, it provides just the right amount of protection. You can set the phone face down or face up and the bumper’s lip should keep both surfaces off the ground/table/naked body. It’s minimal enough that it shouldn’t get in your way or make the phone feel too bulky in hand. But most importantly, it allows you to still see that beautiful Crystal Reflection backside. Mmmhmm.
Is it worth $20 plus the $6 in shipping? If you have already broken one glass back, it probably is. (more…)
After the back of my LG Nexus 4 cracked, prompting me to order another one, I decided to set out on a mission to find the best case for it. As you know, I have zero confidence in the glass backside, so even as someone who hasn’t used a case for more than a few hours at a time over the years, I am willing to give them a shot. If it takes covering up that pretty class backside to preserve it, then so be it. Today, we’re taking a look at the Ringke Slim case for the Nexus 4, a product made by RearthUSA.
I’ve been a fan of the Ringke Slim line in the past, so when I saw the posting for this at the ridiculously low price of $9.99, I jumped on three of them: grey, black and white. (more…)
Tempered glass screen protectors are all the rage these days. With displays becoming bigger and more beautiful, the last thing you want to see is a big scratch across one. The folks at XGEAR understand this and are leading the charge for tempered glass, having produced protectors for both the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Nexus. Their newest product brings that same level of 8H hardness, oil-resistant coating, beveled edges, and .4mm thickness to the beloved Nexus 7. (more…)
We don’t normally do headphone reviews, because well, we’re not a headphone site. We allow the real audio blogs to take care of that stuff, while we as Android enthusiasts, stick to what we do best. With that said, when Motorola asked if we would be interested in checking out their new wireless Bluetooth headphones, the S11-Flex HD, I couldn’t help but give them a shot. Since I know there is a small crew of you that also picked up their MotoActv sports watch, I figured you would also be interested in these headphones, which are their latest sweat-proof fitness product that can pair with any Android device on the planet.

I reviewed the Galaxy S3 Flip Cover back when the device first launched, so I’m not going to talk about this one in much detail other than the color. This is really just me sharing the new colorways that Samsung has available and what the green version looks like in person.
As you can see, it’s bright. Like, really bright. I’m sort of digging the look so far, just because it now looks like no other phone on the market. The back is neon-pastel-puke green. I know, I’m weird for admitting to liking this, but for whatever reason it has been growing on me over the last few hours. (more…)
