Good: Good performance, light UI layer over Android, stellar battery life, curved screen is great for watching videos/playing games. Not Good: Grainy display, slightly cheap feel, HUGE. The Bottom Line: A G2 with a big, curved screen. A great phone, but pricey at $300 w/ contract or $800 off-contract for a grainy display.
After using the iPhone’s intuitive and excellent visual voicemail for the first time, there was no going back to regular voicemail. Except, I did go back when I switched to Android, where the default was (and still is) primitive, regular voicemail. I didn’t know it was such a luxury and that carriers charged $1-3/month for
iOS6′s tired, old staleness was one of the main reasons I switched over to Android. Now, a green iPhone 5c test device running iOS7 is making me seriously consider going back to iPhone. When I returned to my trusty Nexus 4, there were five major aspects that I missed dearly from using iOS7 on an
On a recent trip, I found myself packing two small tablets; the Nexus 7 and the iPad Mini. I thought this was ridiculous. Packing two small tablets totally negates the point of portability.

Tile These little tags work with an app to ensure you don’t lose your oft-misplaced items like keys, wallets, tablets, etc. Tags attach themselves to pretty much anything and the app helps you find lost items with a proximity meter. It also features a way to locate your device with sound, which I think
Out with the old and in with the new, iOS 7 has finally come to freshen things up. Or has it? I downloaded the iOS 7 beta version for free using instructions and links from my friends over at TheUnlockr.com and you can, too. However, keep in mind that this is Apple’s beta, and it
By no means is this recent news, but it IS something consumers need to know about. When you sign up for a 2-year contract with any carrier, you are NOT getting a huge discount on that new phone. No matter what, you are eventually paying the full cost of that phone. The most common way
My quick answer? Galaxy S4. Why? If you’re like me and you use your phone A LOT, a larger screen just makes sense (iPhone has a 4 inch screen whilst the S4′s is 5 inches). I also think some of Android’s standard features along with the S4′s new features could enhance everyday phone use. iOS 6 is stale and
Finally, we are released from the clutches of rumors, leaks and speculation; the Galaxy S4 was officially revealed last night at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall. The unveiling event, full of glitz and glam, looked like an Oscar’s Awards ceremony with a pinch of Broadway, but this is a tech blog, not a theater review.
If we’ve hung out in the last few days, you know I’m pretty excited about the Galaxy S4. My internet scouring efforts have revealed some leaked hi-res images and some potential specs. These days, it’s software features that differentiates the weak from the strong and I’m excited to see what Samsung has done with this
