I’ve been using a BodyGuardz Pure 2 for Google Pixel XL for about two weeks. While that’s hardly enough time to test the claimed 3-5x improvement in scratch resistances or the 25% improvement in drop performance (resistance), I can say one thing; the visibility on this AlumiTech Accessory Glass 2 by Corning screen protector is about the best I’ve used.
Huawei’s focus has been making affordable smartphones with top-notch features for the past few years now, and a lot is the same with the Honor 6x, their latest smartphone that’s targeted at users who don’t want to spend a lot of money for premium features.
iClever’s BoostRun BTH07 Sweat-proof Bluetooth Sport Headphones are a good budget option if you’ve got an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus without a headphone jack. The BoostRuns stay on your ears thanks to the built-in ear hook, and they are certified IPX4 waterproof to protect itself from rain and sweat. At ~$22, The iClever BoostRun are worth checking out.
Pioneer describes their new Rayz earphones as “Lightning smart” and “The iPhone’s perfect accessory.” After using them since Judie brought me a pair from CES, I would agree with that and add they are “brilliant at noise cancellation” and “among the best deals around.” Priced at just $99.99 and $149.99, they are worth every penny.
It would be impossible for me to guess how many iPhone cases I’ve reviewed over the years, but I can count the number that have genuinely impressed me on one hand; the PITAKA Aramid Fiber iPhone 7 Case makes that list. It’s incredibly light and thin, and it provides minimalistic protection with no compromises.
Beginning Monday, February 13, 2017, you’ll once again be able to purchase unlimited data plans on Verizon Wireless starting at $80 for an individual or $45/ea for a family (min 4 lines).
With wireless being the way that so many headphones have been going, and with built-in 3.5mm jacks becoming rarer, it might seem, I don’t know, maybe a bit retro to review a pair of wired-only headphones. Even so, the Focal Listen Closed Back Over-Ear Headphones are worth a look.
Picture Keeper Connect is the thumb drive you never knew you needed. We’ve all been there, running out of room on your mobile phone, struggling to clean out old photos, videos, and apps. Picture Keeper Connect is a USB thumb drive with a built-in lightning adapter that allows you to easily backup your iOS media and starts at $119.99.
I recently reviewed the Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 headphones; now I’ve got their slightly more upscale brother, the Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 SE, in hand. Everything I enjoyed about the BackBeat PRO 2 is present (do check out their review if you haven’t already), but with the PRO 2 SE headphones, there is even more to love.
I’ve tried plenty of phone holders in my vehicles, but the one thing that always stops me from wanting to keep using them is that they can be bulky, ugly, or they require special attachments to use. The Just Mobile Xtand Vent is a sleek, minimalistic vent holder for your phone. It works well, and it looks good.
One of the things that I used do when packing to go overseas was to make sure that I had my collection of plug adapters and a bulky international power strip ready to go; these days I just make sure that I have the Oneadaptr Twist+ World Adapter DUO.
Finding a spot to plug my USB cables into is a never-ending game that gets played out every day; there are simply more cables than I have ports for, and every new generation laptop seems to come with fewer (if any at all). If you’re in the same boat, the Just Mobile AluCharge can help.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve had the chance to check out the LeEco Le Pro3, an affordable smartphone with premium specs. Can the Android device compete with the competition? And more importantly, is it worth your money? Let’s dive in.
Grovemade, a high-quality shop out of Portland, Oregon makes some killer wood products ranging from wood speakers to planters, to pen cups. Grovemade sent two of their iPhone 7 Plus cases, the Walnut Bumper and the Walnut & Leather Case for review. Crafted out of real wood, these gorgeous cases warm up your modern technology and start at $59.
Whether you’re filming home movies, video blogs, concerts, or sports events, the one thing those videos will have in common (if you’re doing it with your iPhone) is that your arm will get tired and they’ll be shaky. For the steadiest videos, you’ll need a gimbal; look to the FeiyuTech SPG PLUS 3-Axis Gimbal if you need stability with options.
It’s hilarious to think that 10 years ago, the display on most people’s mobile phones were barely larger than a postage stamp, and certainly weren’t touch-enabled. Fast forward 10 years, and the efforts of Apple and Samsung have made button-less touchscreen devices popular, and larger than most would have ever though practical.
One of my favorite iPhone cases for my iPhone 6 Plus was without a doubt Ztylus’ Metal Series Camera Kit. Judie reviewed it last year and loved it. Well, the completely redesigned iPhone 7 and 7 Plus Ztylus Revolver Lens Kit models are out from the innovative case maker, and we got a chance to check them out!
If you are looking for a great all in one whole-home audio system that not only gives that gives a pleasant listening experience that doesn’t just need heightened volumes to sound good, you should truly check out the Bluesound PULSE 2 Speaker.
I travel out of the country a minimum of three times per year, and in the past, I have had to find other options than AT&T (my carrier) because using their international plan just didn’t make financial sense. The new AT&T International Day Pass changes all of that.
