I’m not the biggest fan of cases for smartphones, but according to our recent poll, I am in the minority. People want to protect their smartphones, and you know what, I understand where you’re coming from. Especially on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, with all of its glass and hardly any bezel, there’s no doubt you’ll want a case to protect it.
In an effort to show you a few of the better options out there from companies like Spigen, BodyGuardz and VRS Design, we’ve put together the below video to show you what’s out there for the S8 and S8+. (more…)
Now that our Galaxy S8 and S8+ unboxing is out of the way, it’s time to dive into the capabilities of Samsung’s newest top-tier phone. As you know, we do that by breaking it down into tips and tricks, camera reviews, and the first 10 things we think you should.
In this “First 10 Things” video for the Galaxy S8 (or Galaxy S8+), we do our best to be there for Samsung owners who are in for a big change when it comes to using their new phone. Because Samsung has ditched the physical home button and gone virtual, there are a whole bunch of actions that are now different. (more…)
I know, I know, you have probably already seen Tim’s video of Samsung’s “Unbox Your Phone” Experience that we posted a few days back, but this is the Galaxy S8 – we have to do an official unboxing of some retail units. I mean, come on, we just have to.
So in this clip, we walk through the retail unboxing experience of both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Yes, the AKG earbuds are included. So are black chargers. But also, I teach you how to say the word “orchid,” because I’m not sure any YouTuber on Earth knows how to. It’s a heck of a time!
Enjoy. Then prepare yourselves for the Galaxy S8 coverage onslaught.
When Samsung says “Unbox Your Phone,” they aren’t joking. On our doorstep this morning was a large package from Samsung, containing a few goodies that you won’t see in your standard retail packaging. Let’s unbox it, shall we? (more…)
Sort of crazy to think that the LG G6 is just now launching around the globe, but that’s where we’re at! After being announced back in February, LG’s best phone in years is finally available at all major carriers in the US.
We’ve spent loads of time with the phone in recent weeks, putting together a pretty comprehensive set of videos that new owners of the phone might consider watching. Below, we’ve gathered the big ones, which include our full review, a set of tips and tricks, and the first 10 things to do when you fire up a G6 for the first time. If you want to get the most out of that new phone, this is the place to start.
Also, for the dirty details on the phone, should be considering one, be sure to read our full LG G6 review.
If you picked up an LG G6, let us know what you think! (more…)
Just in case you happened to skip our written LG G6 review because you prefer the video format, we’ve got something for you today. Our LG G6 video review is here!
In this video, we cover the same general thoughts as the written, but you will get my slightly tweaked opinion over Tim’s. Overall, though, we both view this phone very similarly. We both think LG did a heck of a job by building an ultra-premium smartphone with solid cameras and few (if any) gimmicks. This is a redemption story after last year’s G5 disaster, that’s for sure.
As Tim noted in the written portion, the Galaxy S8’s arrival is going to make it tough on LG once again, but I’d argue that you should still give this some serious consideration. This phone doesn’t really have any weaknesses, plus you get some added bonuses (dual cameras).
We’re back from the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ launch event and boy did we spend some time with each phone. The event had plenty of phones for everyone to take for a spin, so that’s what you’ll get here in this first look and tour video.
We will have some deeper first impressions and thoughts later on, but I will say that the phones are quite surprising in hand. I say “surprising” because with their extra large displays, they do not in any way feel extra large. If anything, they feel like ultra-premium slim packages that might wow your mind with those Infinity AMOLED panels. (more…)
Well, the wait is over and Super Mario Run is finally available for Android devices. Will it be as big as Pokémon GO? Unlikely, but it’s Mario, so it’ll definitely hit the charts very nicely. (more…)
