TELUS Samsung Galaxy S5 review

Few devices this year are going to receive the attention, and scrutiny, of Samsung’s newest flagship. The Galaxy S5 is the star of Samsung’s expanding smartphone lineup, and as the Korean company’s reach that grown beyond Android enthusiasts, its products have gone through a number of quiet evolutions. Befitting the fifth product in a series,

HTC One M8 review

There’s a popular idiom reinforced in schools every year to millions of students: two heads are better than one. The thinking goes, one person is an island, and smart as he may be, there’s always another way to look at a problem. With the second HTC One, the M8, the Taiwanese manufacturer worked closely with

LG G Flex review

No one needs a curved phone. It’s almost certainly the latest gimmick in a litany of specs that seems to be the result of a maturing smart device market sucked dry of new ideas. And yet the G Flex intrigues me. It’s not the best Android phone on the market, and it’s almost certainly too

Parrot Asteroid Smart review

Parrot may be better known for gizmos like its A.R.Drone quadricopter and hands-free Bluetooth speakers, but recently the company ventured into vehicles with aftermarket dash units that bring Android into the mix.

Alcatel OneTouch Idol X review

Yelp has issued an update to its Android app today, making its search filters more like its iOS and web counterparts. The Android app has languished in design obscurity for some time, holding on to legacy Gingerbread elements, with old-school button designs and poor navigation. While the majority of those problems still remain in version

Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 review

There were moments during my two-week period with the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2, the biggest and most expensive tablet on the market, when I thought, “Huh, this could probably replace my laptop.” What do I use my laptop for? Browsing the internet; playing music; taking notes; writing blog posts; playing games. Samsung’s newest tablet is

Asus Transformer Book Trio review

In the computing word, the term “hybrid” is often synonymous with “compromise” or “expense”. In the case of the Asus Transformer Book Trio, neither applies: it is a fully-capable computer with separate hardware for both an Android tablet and a Windows laptop/desktop. At $949, it’s also fairly inexpensive for the hardware you get. While the

Pebble Steel review

The OG Pebble was the first Kickstarter project I backed with any real potential. It was a new platform, both to me and the former InPulse employees that promised a lot, and learned even more, before eventually shipping nine months later. When I first saw the Pebble, a crude prototype with its logic board attached
