This morning, I woke up innocent to what was in my path today. But then I received THE EMAIL. I read it several times to make sure I wasn’t losing my mind, but it appears to be true and the world is terrible: Goldgenie is promoting an Ultra High Net Worth Gold iPhone X and X Plus.
Mobile Phones & Gear
Over the last few years, phones have gotten bigger and bigger. And their prices have increased to match their size. Seriously, who ever thought a premium phone would sell for over a $1000? Fortunately, phones like the Alcatel 3V have arrived. They are big, but at just $150, they don’t have a price that matches their size.
If you asked me which battery pack has been my longest-running favorite, I’d tell you it’s the mophie powerstation XL that I bought in 2017; it’s been all over the world with me several times. Now, I have a new mophie powerstation plus XL in my backpack, and since I’m predominantly on an iPhone X these days, it’s absolutely perfect.
At the Unveiled event today in NYC, Samsung did as expected and announced the new Galaxy Note9, but they also managed to throw in a couple of welcome surprises with the new Galaxy Watch and a sneak peek of the Galaxy Home. Let’s take a look at these new devices!
Not everyone needs or wants earphones that overemphasize or distort audio content. I see so many listening devices that manipulate sound in some form or fashion but some folks just need a good set of affordable reference in-ear monitors. That is where the new Brainwavz M2 IEM Noise Isolating Earphones fit the bill.
It’s that time again! The kids (or maybe you?) are headed back to school, and that means they’ll need the proper gear. Here’s a round-up of some of our favorite back to school supplies.
Bose is often regarded as the go-to choice for noise-canceling headphones and earbuds and their recent QuietComfort 20 headphones are no exception. Boasting one of the most comfortable headphones I’ve worn in years, they offer truly impressive noise-cancellation.
For the longest time, it seemed like the portable speaker trend was headed toward smaller and more compact speakers, but you know what? Big spaces need big sound, and that’s just what you’ll get with the Braven BRV-XXL. It’s not a small speaker by any means, but the sound it puts out makes bringing it along worth it!
Want a smartphone, but don’t want to pay more than £99? If you are in one of the areas where it’s available, you can do just that with the Honor 7S. Available in Mexico, Columbia, Serbia, South Africa, Egypt, the Philippines, and parts of Europe, the Honor 7S strips away many flagship expectations to inexpensively deliver a smartphone experience.
With Apple finally jumping on the wireless device charging bandwagon, most of the phone users in the world can now take advantage of this cool inductive charging technology. The Qi wireless standard seems to have become the most popular of these and one of the newest chargers offering this is the CANDI from WITTI Design.
Did you put in an order for the Tesla Model 3? I know two people who did, and I’ll admit that I’m a little jealous. What seemingly obvious feature did Tesla forget? Wireless charging! How do you fix that? With the Nomad Tesla 3 Wireless Charger, of course!
Are you looking for a high-capacity battery pack that can charge your laptop, tablet, DSLR camera, phone, and almost anything else you might carry? Take a look at the redesigned Goal Zero Sherpa 100AC Power Pack. It has two USB Type-C ports, 2 USB Type-A ports, an AC outlet, wireless charging, and it includes all the cables you might need!
I’m the person who drops their iPhone often — not some simple 1 or 2′ drop, but a hard drop on the corner or face that would shatter a phone’s screen or ding a corner. For drop protection, I keep my phone in a protective case; for the screen, I’m using the Belkin ScreenForce TemperedCurve Screen Protection for iPhone X.
Recently we enjoyed the new Surf waterproof Bluetooth speaker from ION Audio, but for those times when we want to enjoy the patio or entertain friends or family, the pool may not be an option. Introducing the Tiki Sounds Outdoor Illuminated Speaker system.
I’ve always been a fan of Invisible Shield’s screen protectors. They’ve come a long way since I reviewed my first product from them. The new Glass+ 360 takes things to even greater heights. The system, and it is a system, delivers complete front, back, and side protection without adding weight or bulk to your iPhone 8, 8 Plus of X.
We recently looked at the Scosche MagicMount Pro Charge and the Speck Presidio Mount Case designed to take advantage of its magnetic wireless charging. The Scosche BoomBottle MM is part of the same line. It is a Bluetooth waterproof speaker with magnets to hold an iPhone in a Speck Presidio Mount or attached steel plates in place; it’s awesome.
I reviewed Speck’s Presidio case for the iPhone 7 last year. Slimmer AND more protective, it replaced their CandyShell line. I was impressed. (Read my review.) I’m now using a Presidio case with my iPhone X, but it isn’t just any Presidio case. No, this is the Speck Presidio Mount and it works with Scosche’s MagicMount line. I love it!
As I have mentioned previously, on of the features, I like best about the iPhone X is its ability to charge wirelessly with Qi-enabled wireless chargers. The Scosche MagicMount Pro Charge takes that awesome feature to a new level with wireless, cradleless charging. And while you don’t need it, you’ll also want to pick up a Speck Presidio Mount case.
Summer is all about spending time by the pool, hanging out on the back deck, travel, and camping. The TYLT Block Party gives you a way to stay charged while outdoors while enjoying your favorite music. The Block Party is a combo portable Bluetooth speaker and 20,000mAh battery that can charge up to four devices at the same time.
We’ve been covering RHA headphones for some time and have always been impressed. From the first pair we reviewed, the company has shown it is serious about producing headphones with great sound and impressive quality. The $69.95 MA390 Wireless is their latest offering. The neckband style headphones are affordable and will surely impress even the most discerning consumer.
Last year, I reviewed the BlackBerry KEYone, and I found it to be an excellent update to the BlackBerry line. A year has passed, and the BlackBerry KEY2 is now available. Should you get one?
