The LG G6 is a pretty great phone, and is certainly a better success than last year's modular G5. It's not uncommon for manufacturers to create smaller versions of their flagships for the mid-range market, and that appears to be exactly what LG is doing. The company is teasing a new phone announcement for tomorrow, but some details have already been leaked. Read More
These days, it's hard to survive without external power for our smartphones. The 3000mAh or so units that are inside can't last throughout all the browsing, gaming, picture-taking, and media consumption that many of us do every day. But if you don't already have a battery pack (or if you just need a bigger one), Amazon has the Anker PowerCore 26800 that stores a whopping, you guessed it, 26,800mAh of juice for only $41.99.

Sony has maintained the same basic design language for years, but a number of its phones have barely squeaked by in the JerryRigEverything durability testing. What about the new Xperia XZ Premium? It has premium right in the name, and Sony is asking for a very premium $800 for it. This phone fairs quite well overall. Read More
New unlocked phones pop up on Amazon Prime from time to time, and sometimes they're even important enough to warrant a post. Today is special, though. There's not one, not two, but four new unlocked phones available on Amazon with Prime-exclusive variants: the Nokia 6, Alcatel Idol 5S, A30 Plus, and A50 (left to right above). They're all priced competitively, and you can save some cash if you don't mind ads. Read More
It's been a while since we've had any good UK related Android Pay news, the last tidbit being the addition of Metro Bank to the service back in February. You may have seen that American Express got Android Pay support in Canada recently, something I was more than a little bit jealous of as I've been waiting to have my Amex on my phone for ages now. Finally, my calls have been answered, and Amex cards now work with Google's mobile payments app here in the UK.
This makes me happy.
I didn't get a notification about this, which I might have expected given my Amex card is set up in my Google account. Read More
Outdoor-friendly Android Wear watches are a special breed and the sexily named Casio WSD-F10 is one of the species' rare specimens. Its announcement price of $500 didn't help it garner the hearts of many in the active community, and even though a few months later it dropped to $400, it was still hard to stomach.
Over the past months, we've seen some deals on it bringing it to $330 then $317, but none as appealing as today's Amazon Deal of the Day. The WSD-F10 is down to $249.99, $149 off its current MSRP and half price from its original MSRP. Read More
Those of you with a good memory may remember the ZenFone 4 name from a few years ago. In 2014, Asus was using screen sizes for its naming convention when it released the ZenFone 4, 5, and 6 with respective display sizes in inches. Here we are three years later, and Asus has long since switched to a more conventional chronological naming scheme for its ZenFone line. Following on from last year's ZenFone 3 series of phones, the first in the 2017 ZenFone 4 range has been revealed on Asus' Russian site. Read More
