LG G3 review

I don’t envy the decisions made inside the walls of manufacturers like LG. After proving deft at creating high-end smartphones that excel in practically every area, further improvement is to be found in the nooks of refinement, not the broad strokes that we saw in years past. With the G3, LG has fashioned a beautiful

Sony SmartBand review

As evidenced by the early arrival of the SmartWatch, Sony is unafraid to dip its toes into new territory. Announced at CES this year, the SmartBand is the company’s first foray into fitness and health tracking, employing its Core sensor in one of what will eventually be many variations. But as smart watch platforms from

LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live review: Android Weary

The first time I realized the triage potential of a smartwatch, I was walking home from the grocery store with two bags in each arm, and a wrist vibrating because three separate family members were trying to get in touch at the same time. It was a small thing, to alleviate that anxiety, but it

Acer Liquid S1 review

What’s old is new again has never been a mantra adopted by the mobile industry — the opposite is in fact true — but the rise of the unlocked smartphone could change that to some extent. The Acer Liquid S1 is not a new phone, but the demand for quality, inexpensive and unlocked handsets spurred the

Sony Xperia Z2 review

You’d be hard-pressed to find a company more deserving of success in the mobile space than Sony. The company’s early Android phones were, to put it mildly, disappointing. Who can forget the Timescape/Mediascape controversy, and how, for so many years, the company always seemed to be a step or two behind its competitors in both

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

Alcatel OneTouch Idol X review

The idea of a smartphone as a tool — a blade, a shovel and a pen — has largely been lost in the era of Candy Crush and Twitter. Since not everyone can afford a high-end device, the chasm between “phone-as-utility” and “phone-as-fun” has created two disparate and opposing sides to the regime. It’s especially

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
