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!
Even though the weather is just as confused as us on what season it is every day, soon it will be summer, and pools will begin to open. If you plan on being poolside, or simply just out and about this summer, you should check out Dog & Bone’s Wetsuit Impact water and drop-proof case for the iPhone X.
Today, Mobvoi Inc, backed by Google and Volkswagen, launched their new truly wireless headphones, the TicPods Free on Indiegogo. The AI-powered earbuds are compatible with any mobile assistant across multiple mobile devices. If you back them during their pre-sale campaign, you’ll be able to cop these headphones for only $59, much cheaper than the anticipated retail price of $129.
This week I had the pleasure of guesting on Myriam Joire’s Mobile Tech Podcast. While the emphasis of her podcast is mobile tech, trust me to go off on a tangent or five. We covered some of the latest mobile phones and touched on design … while lamenting the “evolutionary but not revolutionary” designs we’ve been seeing.
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.
I’m a sucker for a cute and protective iPhone case, and that’s exactly what Adidas Originals is offering. If you have an iPhone 6, 7, 8, or X series phone, Adidas has a range of cases that go from sporty to island-inspired.
A while back we reviewed Mophie’s wireless charging base. The Wireless Charging Base offered 7.5w of wireless charging for the iPhone X, which is as fast as the iPhone X/8 supports. Now Mophie has come out with the Charge Stream Pad+.
If you own a vehicle and tend to use navigation apps in order to get where you’re going, chances are you need a car mount. But don’t go and buy one of those cheap ones from the gas station, get yourself one that is durable and serves multiple functions like these from iOttie.
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?
One of my favorite pairs of headphones is the Bowers & Wilkins P7 which I reviewed early last year. Now I’ve got the Bowers & Wilkins PX in hand, and I’ve got to say, they took everything I liked about the P7 and added even more features: a sleeker style, adaptive noise canceling, 22 hours battery life, and intuitive commands.
I spend a lot of time hunting, on a tractor, and generally in the outdoors. Protecting my iPhone 7+ can be a daunting task in some of the conditions I carry it. I recently tried out the SnowLizard SLXtreme iPhone 7+/8+ case, and found it to be packed with protective features.
We’ve reviewed dozens of external batteries here on Gear Diary but few have offered the combination of simplicity, power and understated elegance of the mophie powerstation USB-C XXL. This external battery was made with the most recent MacBooks in mind but is also quite friendly with devices that employ a USB-C connector. Of course, USB-A is still present as well.
So you just got a shiny new Galaxy S9? The new Samsung Galaxy S9 is made of a tougher build than its predecessor, the S8. That said, it’s still quite the fragile device. And there’s no worse feeling than the experience of dropping and cracking your brand new phone.
The Tutti Studio Matti is a cute, block-shaped wireless speaker with retro styling that wants to be your modern-day boombox. Designed as a portable sound system, the Matti has a thick, molded polymer sub-chassis, steel grills, an aluminum handle, and silicone rubber bumpers for durability. You can even link up to 8 together for massive sound!
Master & Dynamic, the New York City-based headphones manufacturer that Greg and I adore, has partnered with Leica to bring their new Silver Edition series of headphones; if you’re a fan of the camera brand, you’ll recognize the black, silver, and red styling immediately.
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.
One of the things I love about the iPhone X is the wireless charging Apple finally built into its new phones. I love not having to plug my phone in. In the past months, I’ve purchased a number of wireless charging stands. All get the job done, but none comes close to the Nomad Wireless Travel Stand.
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.
