It has only been a couple of months since OnePlus released the OnePlus 5, and here they are with the newer, larger 5T. The 5T ups the ante by packing in a large 6” phablet size display with thinner bezels.
Two weeks ago, I was telling a friend that I see today’s phones as more evolutionary rather than revolutionary. She asked what I’d consider revolutionary, and I said I’d like to see a phone company create a dual-screen device that could fold into either a phone or a tablet. Would you believe that ZTE has gone and done just that?!
Can we all agree that this has been a banner year for smartphones? The other day we finally got all the details for the iPhone 8 and X; Samsung has come out with their S8 and S8+ and the Note8, and now we have the LG V30 to look forward to. The darling of IFA, LG’s newest Android flagship phone is impressive.
There are so many interesting Android phones available now that choosing a new one can be daunting. Have you considered the new LG V30? It has a beautiful screen, an exceptional camera, and lovely thin bezels. But what more does the V30 have going for it?
It wasn’t that long ago that the only Nokia phones you could buy were Windows OS Phones; I remember one of my gadget wishes being that Nokia would release their same fabulous hardware but with it running Android. That day has come, and the Nokia 6 is an excellent combo of Nokia’s fab hardware with Android OS.
Even if you’re not an Amazon Prime member, you don’t always have to wait around for Prime Day to find a great deal. One brand in particular that I really rave about to my followers on social media about is Aukey.
If you work outdoors, or you just like to spend a lot of time outside, you know that there are mini disasters that can occur which are out of your control. Dirt, wetness, and fumbling resulting in drops are to be expected, and not every phone can handle that kind of abuse. The AT&T LG X Venture, however, can.
Using a fingerprint to unlock your phone is one of the most convenient ways to make sure that your information and photos are kept locked down. But fingerprint technology hasn’t kept up with all of the capabilities newer phones sport — like waterproofing and being able to fearlessly to use your phone in the rain or in the pool.
I recently reviewed the ZTE MAX XL, and I found it to be a much better than expected phablet for anyone who needs a good phone but doesn’t necessarily want to spend $600 or more on their mobile device. Originally only available from Boost Mobile, Sprint will also begin selling this phone for $192.
Some time ago, I wrote about the V-MODA Forza Metallo Wireless Headphones. With this new offering, V-MODA cut the cord without compromising on sound or battery life. This “Neckband Headphone” design gives you wireless, handsfree music on the go while delivering V-MODA’s amazing sound. I’ve been using them for a few weeks now, and I absolutely love these headphones.
If you’d asked me several years ago if I’d be recommending a BlackBerry phone in 2017, I probably would have laughed and said no. For years, BlackBerry has seemed one step away from death taking the physical QWERTY keyboard along with it. No one could be more surprised than me that I like and enjoy using the new BlackBerry KEYone.
As I’ve written previously, I love V-MODA products and have anxiously been waiting for the V-MODA Forza Metallo Wireless to arrive. They cut the word without compromising on sound or battery life thanks to their “Neckband Headphone” design that wrap the battery and controls around the neck as the earbuds extend from thin wires to reach your ears.
After doing a lot of reviews on products, some of those products get stored in a bin to be used in case of emergency, and some others? Not so much. I tend to find myself using still other products on a day-to-day basis, and I wanted to highlight a few of them.
V-MODA headphones are, consistently, my favorite line of headphones. And my favorite V-MODA offering? The V-MODA Crossfade Wireless Over-Ear headphones. The headphones offer the best of both worlds. They are amazing wired headphones and, fantastic wireless headphones too. Now the company is launched the next generation of their wireless headphones. The V-MODA Crossfade 2 Wireless Over-Ear headphones look amazing!
TCL, one of the world’s leading smartphone manufacturers has descended upon this year’s Mobile World Congress to announce they will try a feat that has been attempted quite a few times with failing efforts: Resurrecting the BlackBerry.

If you live an active lifestyle and hate wired cables, you should actually check out LG’s Tone Active+ Stereo Bluetooth headsets. The follow-up to LG’s popular collared headphones the LG Tone Active, how much more of a “plus” can the Tone Active’s be in the wireless headphone market?
I’ll be quite honest, I didn’t know exactly how I would go about this seeing as though I’ve restricted myself to Apple ever since the iPhone 4s and have not looked back. So when LG sent over their LG V20, my world was completely shaken up. How did it turn out?
With the holidays coming up, many people are looking for a great budget phone with premium features, and if that includes you, there’s a popular brand (and Gear Diary favorite) that you might need to check out.
