The smartphone industry is extremely competitive, and manufacturers know it’s necessary to continually release devices with the latest and greatest features.

I’ve had the 12.9″ iPad Pro since it came out, and while there are things I absolutely love about using a larger tablet, lugging it around isn’t one of them.

Less than 24 hours after being unveiled, the Google Pixel XL 128 GB is officially out of stock. The phone, Google’s first attempt at managing the design process, had been widely criticized as too expensive.
There has been quite a bit of excitement around the idea of modular phones this year; LG’s G5 introduced their take on modules with their “Friends” collection, and Moto has taken it a step further with their Moto Mods for the Moto Z line. Let’s take a look …
I’m finishing up a review of VIZIO M-Series display. It’s an amazing Ultra HD display with Google Cast built in. I’ve been looking at VIZIO sound bars to add to it and was psyched to get word that VIZIO is also bringing some WiFi speakers to market in the form of the all-new VIZIO SmartCast Crave Pro and 360 Speaker.

Just about twice a year I leave my iPhone behind and flirt with Android phones for a period of time. Most of the time I’m happy to get back to my iPhone. Most recently, however, the transition back to iOS was tough. I was using the OnePlus 3 and absolutely loved it. Raina, however, wanted me back on iMessage.
