Everyone's favorite limbless hero is back, but not in the way you might expect. While Rayman has been relegated to the modern micro-transaction gaming wastelands, he comes from a proud tradition of classic platforming.

We've got an LG G5! But we can't review it. Because it's not done yet. LG has sent along a pre-production global version of the phone for us to "preview," so I'd like to know what you want to know about it. Questions about build, speed, software, and general thoughts about certain things are great! Questions about benchmarks, specific camera performance, and very specific battery life are much harder to answer just yet. Read More
For people looking for a small high-end phone, there's the Xperia Z5 Compact and that's it. Sony's latest version comes with a 4.6-inch screen, a Snapdragon 820, a 23MP camera, and plenty of reason for people who like hand-sized phones to fall in love. Read More
For many young kids, Disneyland is a dream come true. And if they're old enough to dream of going on Disney rides, they're probably also old enough to know that Gameloft is a game developer to approach with caution. Some games are good. Others are ripe with in-app purchases. And the ones that are good tend to have IAPs too.

We knew Google was going to be pushing out OTA updates to the Android N developer preview this year, but I don't think anyone was expecting it to happen quite so fast. The first update is rolling out to devices now, and factory images have been updated for those of you planning to do it the old fashioned way. Read More
No matter how convincing something like the Moto 360 or the Huawei Watch may be, some people won't pick up an Android Wear device until real watch makers start offering them.
That time has come. Fossil released a watch last year, and it announced two more this month. So has Nixon, a California-based company that makes products for extreme sports enthusiasts. Now we have a grown up watch on its way from Michael Kors. Read More
The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge come into 2016 with a rather tremendous amount of baggage in the eyes of the phone enthusiasts of the world. Many viewed Samsung’s move to sealed batteries, non-expandable storage, a non-waterproof design, and glass backs as open and Apple-hued traitorism last year, feeling the company had lost sight of what its most ardent fans considered reasons to buy into the Galaxy brand. The same set of changes also befell what I long thought Samsung’s bulwark in the high-end, high-feature part of the enthusiast market in the Note line (minus waterproofing, as the Note never had it).

I'm a huge fan of what JBL has been doing in the portable speaker scene here lately — the Xtreme ($299), Charge 2+ ($139), and Flip 3 ($99) are all absolutely incredible at their respective price points. There's no doubt in my mind that JBL is at the top of the Bluetooth speaker game right now.
Knowing what the company has done with speakers, I was all over it when they reached out about the new Everest Elite 700 over-the-ear headphones ($300). I really just wanted to see if the Bluetooth headphone situation was on the same level as the speakers. Read More
