Alcatel 3V is a Huge, Powerful Android Phone at a Remarkably Low Price

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.


Mophie Powerstation Plus XL: Perfect for All Portable iOS Devices

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.





Bose QuietComfort 20 In-Ear Headphones Review

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.


Braven BRV-XXL: A Portable Boombox That’s Ready to Party!

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!

Belkin ScreenForce TemperedCurve Screen Protection for iPhone X Review

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.


ION Audio Tiki Sounds Perfect for Outdoor Entertaining

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.



Scosche BoomBottle MM Is Great for a Summer Full of Music Fun

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.


Speck Presidio Mount Has a Magnetic Personality

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!


Scosche MagicMount Pro Charge Is Qi-riffic

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.
