AT&T Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G Review Part 2: After Almost Two Months of Solid Use, This Next-Gen Phablet Has Proven Itself

I covered a brief history of Samsung’s journey that led us to the Galaxy Z Fold3 yesterday; let’s pick up where we left off. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 ships in a surprisingly small, shallow box. Being used to so many smartphones coming in much larger packaging, this was kind of refreshing. Most people I know either throw the boxes away anyway or store them somewhere until they eventually sell their phone on eBay, anticipating their next upgrade. I’m fine with the slightly austere packaging, even on such a pricy phone.


AT&T Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G Review Part 1: Samsung’s Long Journey to Make Folding Smartphones

If you had told me six months ago that I would be completely enamored with an oversized folding smartphone — a true phablet (phone+tablet) — I would have laughed at you; now, the joke is on me. I’ve been using an AT&T Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 for almost two months, and it has redefined everything I’ve ever thought I would ever want in a smartphone. This review will be a long one, which is why I’m splitting it into two parts.


The Unexpected Nostalgia of Finding an Original iPhone in My Junk Drawer

I recently went digging through a junk drawer looking for some old photos; I found several USB cables, a calculator watch, some unidentified flash drives, and … an original iPhone. As in, the iPhone that I sat in line outside the Apple Store to buy on launch day back in 2007. Fourteen years have passed, and it’s honestly shocking to hold the original iPhone in one hand and my 12 Pro Max in the other!



PopSocket PopCase Review: It Really “POPS” in a Crowded Case Market

I’ve never been a PopSocket person; when you shove your phone into your pockets as often as I do, you don’t generally want anything that makes the phone any bulkier than necessary. However, as phones have gotten bigger, the argument for something that provides a grip and a stand becomes stronger. PopSocket has decided to jump into the crowded case market with their new PopSocket PopCase that claims to solve both my issues. Does it work? Read on to find out!

Incipio Grip for Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 Review: Protect Your Expensive Foldable

So you just got the latest Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3, and while you love the way the phone feels naked in your hand, carrying it around that way probably makes you just a wee bit nervous. That’s understandable, considering that this foldable costs almost $2000! You can give yourself peace of mind that it’s protected by putting the phone in an Incipio Grip for Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3.



Google Pixel 5a Review: The Best 5G Android Phone You Can Buy for Less Than $500, but There Are Some Caveats

As you may recall from my Google Pixel 5 review, I wasn’t a fan of not having an XL version option, and I didn’t care for the under-display ear speaker. The Google Pixel 5a addresses those complaints well with its 6.34″ display and a more conventional ear speaker; it also introduces IP67 water resistance to the budget-friendly a-series. If you don’t mind giving up wireless charging, the Google Pixel 5a has a lot to offer — including the largest battery found in any Pixel device yet.

Nomad makes some of the best cases for the iPhone; in fact, their Rugged Leather Case has saved my iPhone from drops countless times. It should be no surprise that their iPhone 13 lineup is impressive. The new Nomad iPhone 13 cases feature built-in MagSafe magnets and come with a new, killer feature —  NFC Digital Business Cards! With a Digital Business Card, you’ll never need to worry about carrying business cards again. Here’s a close look at the new Nomad iPhone 13 case models.

Affordable Xiaomi 11T Series Includes “Cinemagic” Cameras and Ultra-Fast Charging

If a large display with a fast refresh rate, a speedy processor, and a solid camera for content creation on the go is essential to you, then you’ll want to take a look at the two new Xiaomi 11T series devices launched today. Both the 11T and the 11T Pro offer what Xiaomi calls “Cinemagic” cameras; they say you can leave the expensive video and photography equipment at home (or better yet, not buy it in the first place), go out and explore and get your best shots. Best of all, both phones are affordable.


Call Screen Is Google Pixel’s Killer Feature, and It Will Completely Spoil You

There are plenty of good reasons people develop a fondness for a particular brand; maybe it’s because the company’s hardware is always top-notch, their pricing is reasonable, or they have excellent customer service when something goes wrong. But the singular feature that’s made it hard for me to consider using any smartphone other than a Google Pixel as my daily driver isn’t related to hardware, pricing, or customer service. As I mentioned in our Google Pixel 4, Pixel 4a, and Pixel 5 reviews, beyond Pixel’s excellent cameras and pure Android experience, their killer feature is Call Screen.
