Judie and I first met while we were guests on a podcast. I loved chatting with her and am grateful that I was able to begin writing for Gear Diary. Last week I was a guest on Pocketnow’s podcast PNWeekly. A longtime Pocketnow reader, I was excited. The conversation was lively and covered a lot of ground. Check it out.
Remember when rose gold was all the rage? We’re trying to forget that time too. Fortunately, Samsung has a new gold color for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ that we can handle – and it’s a “Sunrise Gold”.
Easily one of the best portable tablets I have ever used or reviewed, the Huawei MediaPad M5 (WiFi version) is now available for purchase. Whether you are looking for the 8.4″ version I reviewed, the 10.8″, or the 10.8″ MediaPad M5 Pro, you’ll be able to get yours from Amazon or NewEgg for $319, $359 and $449 respectively.
If you’ve been lusting after the Galaxy S9 / S9+ but the price is making you weary, Samsung has some new, more affordable alternatives for you to choose from in the form of the Galaxy J3 and J7.
If you prefer the feel of physical keys under your thumbs when you’re tapping out emails or posting on Instagram, you’re going to love the BlackBerry KEY2. Sleeker and with dual-lens optics, the BlackBerry KEY2 is a welcome update to last year’s KEYone.
If the LG G7 ThinQ got you all excited when it was announced, but the “Verizon-only” made the AT&T customer in you sad, you’ll be glad to know that you’ll soon be able to get your hands on something similar. Of course, similar does not equal same, but the AT&T LG V35 ThinQ is very close.
If you think that you need to pay big bucks to get a great phone, Alcatel begs to differ. Just under $150 will get you a smartphone that offers a TCL custom-built 2K display, dual rear cameras, biometric security, and more. No contracts, no monthly payment plans, just a really great phone for cheap — that’s the Alcatel 3V!
Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and we’ve got one Huawei Mate 10 Pro to give away that will make the perfect gift. Entry is easy — just follow the directions in the Rafflecopter box below. If you’re the lucky winner, you’ll have the smartphone in your hot little hands soon!
Samsung has announced new Galaxy S9 and S9+ models, and they are all about offering more storage. Specifically, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will now be available in 128GB and 256GB capacities. And let’s face it, in a world where 4K content is becoming the norm, you can never have too much storage on your phone.
Honor has announced a software update for the Honor 7X which brings with it Face Unlock. The Honor 7X is one of the best budget smartphones on the market. It’s a phone that looks, feels and operates like a much more expensive device, yet it only costs $199.
Judie and Helena were at CES 2018 and were “wowed” by the Honor View10 smartphone. In fact, it received one of the very first Gear Diary Best of CES 2018 awards! I was excited to check it out and have been using a review sample for the past few weeks. Honestly, it deserved our Best of… award and much more.
It’s not often that I see a device that brags on having a built-in CD and DVD player, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t times when I wish I had easy access to both. Take a look at the Radionovelli 4G Radio; it’s an FM, DAB, and internet radio with 4G connectivity, a 7″ screen, and more!
ZTE might not be a household name in America, but they’re a big name around the world. They’re a China-based mobile phone manufacturer, and based purely on geography they’ve become a hot potato in a worldwide fight about global trade, privacy, and whether we can truly trust any corporation.
A few years ago, Motorola spotted an opening in the highly competitive smartphone market. Every phone doesn’t need to be a flagship, but the ones that weren’t king of the hill were from no-name brands or were last year’s leaders. The moto g and moto e lines challenged that, and they’re continuing that tradition with their newest phones!
Blazing fast performance, an uninterrupted totally immersive display, great optics – the Samsung Galaxy S9 is everything we’ve come to expect from Samsung’s flagship phones. With all of that said, on the hardware front, the S9 is not all that different from its predecessor. Instead, its unique features are what makes the S9 stand out.
If your phone literally goes with you everywhere that you go, then you know that sometimes unexpected accidents can happen. If you have an Honor 7X or View10 that is purchased between April 1 and May 31, 2018, Honor is saying that you’ll be covered for “damage caused by accidental drops into the toilet”. Toilet Insurance! Wait, what?
Last year when I reviewed the Huawei MediaPad M3, I called it the best Android tablet for the money; I was impressed with its solid build, sleek styling, Harman Kardon sound, and excellent price. Now comes the Huawei MediaPad M5, and what was already a fab tablet is now a possible iPad killer — assuming you don’t mind a non-iOS device.
If your job means being outside in the harshest weather conditions, and you need a tablet that can survive drops that would kill other devices, one that can be used while wearing work gloves or even when the screen is wet, then you might want to check out the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2. It was made for just that.
Huawei’s flagship phone is “on sale” this week. The Huawei Mate 10 Pro is available for $699, that is a $100 off its regular price.
When the Galaxy S9 and S9+ were announced last month at MWC, and Samsung introduced AR Emoji as a new feature, Samsung said that they would be collaborating with Disney for some special AR Emoji.
Honor’s flagship phone, the View10 is finally available for pre-order in the U.S. The phone earned one of our Best of CES awards. Priced at $499, the Honor View10 is gunning for “affordable” flagship phones like the OnePlus 5T. It’s also one of the most affordable ways to experience artificial intelligence on your smartphone.
