If you've ever looked at both AliExpress and Samsung's accessories store, you'd know that car mounts can range from the super cheap to the super expensive and there are dozens of different designs and concepts used to keep the phone stable despite the vibrations and accelerations of the car. One of my favorite types of car mounts are magnetic: they're usually sturdy, very simple to use, have less moving parts, and are super quick for placing and removing the phone.
If you love these types of mounts or you want to try one out and see if it could work for you, today's a good day to do so. Read More
It appears SwiftKey missed April 1 by a few days, as today the company has uploaded a new keyboard app with a difference: instead of using SwiftKey's predictive talents to figure out what your next word will be, it uses none other than William Shakespeare's own words. That's right, England's most famous playwright powers the 'KeyBard,' or rather his words do.
If you start typing a famous Shakespeare quote, such as, "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet," or, "Now is the winter of our discontent," the app will try and fill them in and complete the sentence. Read More
There's no shortage of Reddit applications for Android on the Play Store, most of which are excellent in terms of design and functionality and cater to different types of Reddit users. But no matter how many third-party clients are available, there's always a special place for official apps, ones that come straight from the site/service/network and provide a home-brew perspective on what the experience should be like on mobile.
Reddit has been hard at work improving its mobile presence, first with a new beta mobile site and second with an official Android app which was leaked a couple of months ago and is now finally official. Read More
Who doesn't love a good update? That's a rhetorical question, of course. A few app updates rolled out today, including one for Google+ on Android.

The first thing to note about the Huawei P9 is how thin it is. At only 6.95mm, the phone feels very narrow in your palm, negating that 5.2-inch 1080p display. While I have big hands (my normal phone is a Nexus 6P, and I could go bigger), the P9 fits in my hand very well, not feeling too big or too small. Another thing you notice is its weight: it weighs only 144g, which for a phone of this size is crazy. It doesn't feel like it weighs this, though; maybe it's the thinness, or the compact body, but it feels like it weighs much less. Read More
Samsung was the first OEM to get native TeamViewer remote control support. The necessary support for Samsung devices had been included with the TeamViewer app ever since, but things are a little different following the latest update. There are now two new apps for Samsung phones, a host and a standard quick support app. Read More
The Galaxy S7 has been out for a couple weeks now, so it's about time for the discount game to get started. If you buy the GS7 from a carrier, you're going to be paying upward of $700 and it'll probably be SIM locked. Or, you could buy this unlocked dual-SIM GS7 (model G930FD) for $599.99. Read More
Alright, non-US readers, this one goes out to you. A seller has the international Nexus 5X on eBay, and they only want $229 for the phone. Take that in for a moment. Yeah, that's a great price for a current Nexus.
