Blue Mo-Fi Headphones Review: The Mobile Audiophile's Headphone, Reimagined

If you and I think alike on the subject of "good sound," you probably found the title of this review, well, annoying. Audiophilism can be an annoying thing, and audiophiles themselves can be quite annoying about their audiophilia. It can be sort of like talking to someone who's really into, like, I don't know... cheese. Or something. You know what I mean - they don't just love it, it's part of their identity.

Pressy Review: I Had No Clue Something Could Suck This Badly

I'm going to keep this short and sweet: Pressy is the worst product I've ever reviewed. I generally find some redeeming quality about even the worst products, but Pressy doesn't have one. It is, without question, complete garbage and a waste of money.

Four members of the Android Police team, myself included, backed Pressy on Kickstarter. Out of the four of us, roughly zero percent likes or uses it. In fact, in a recent poll conducted in the Android Police team chat, 100% of those who backed this project regret doing so.

BACtrack Vio Bluetooth Smartphone Breathalyzer Lightning Review

Back in December of last year, we took a look at the BACtrack Mobile Bluetooth breathalyzer, a police-grade drunk-o-meter. While we believe it to be pretty dang accurate, it's undeniably pricey at $130 (though it was $150 at the time of the review), which puts it outside of what most people are willing to spend on what can really only be defined as a novelty item.

Despite being "police-grade," BACtrack devices are not intended to be used as a metric for deciding when it's OK to drive.

Tablo Streaming HDTV DVR Review: Welcome To The Next Generation Of Cord-Cutting

Since the dawn of time, humans have faced a real struggle: the relentless grip of cable companies. When it comes to TV, cable providers know they have you in a corner – all your favorite shows come on different channels, and you're going to shell out all the dollars necessary to get in on the pseudo-action. This is our spiritual war.

Over the past few years, a bold, brave few have journeyed outside of the norm, metaphorically cutting the cord and leaving cable providers in the dust.

LG G3 Review Addendum: 2 Months Later

I wrote a review of the G3 just about two months ago, and at the time, I really enjoyed it. While the model I was provided was designed for Korea, it worked on AT&T's LTE network and generally provided a steady wireless experience. I found Wi-Fi connectivity was a bit spotty, though, and there were occasional network hiccups that are to be expected of a piece of hardware not specifically certified for a particular carrier.

Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E.M Bluetooth Keyboard And F.R.E.Q.M Bluetooth Headset Lightning Review

Mad Catz isn't generally the first name you think of when pondering high-end Android accessories, but I was pretty impressed with its CTRLR Bluetooth gamepad. In fact, it's my current favorite Bluetooth controller for Android (though NVIDIA's SHIELD controller is better than anything else available today). While we're on a high note, we decided to check out the STRIKEM Bluetooth keyboard and FREQM Bluetooth gaming headset. Let's dig in.

Hands-On With Runtastic's First Fitness Tracking Band, The Orbit

I've been using Runkeeper to track my cycling activity for the last eight months or so, and it has never really let me down. That said, I'm always on the lookout for new (or improved) ways to monitor my rides outside of my bike's cyclometer, so when Runtastic reached out to me about taking its new fitness tracking band Orbit for a spin, I was down for the challenge. I've had it for the last few weeks, and so far I think it's a good start.

Duet Review: I Love To Hate This Game

A long time ago in a galaxy far away, a wise old man once said, "let go your conscious self and act on instinct." Little did we know at the time Obi-wan was not just talking about using The Force, but about playing the game Duet. This title just came to Android as part of the Humble Mobile Bundle 6 last week, and a few days later it arrived in the Play Store.

BLU Announces The Studio C Mini And Studio 5.0 C HD To Compete With The Moto E And Moto G [Hands-On]

When it comes to affordable, off-contract handsets, BLU is one of my favorite phone manufacturers on the market. The company offers a myriad of devices to fit a wide range of budgets, and today's release features a couple of new handsets for those looking to pick up a smartphone for around $150 or less. As always with BLU, that's an off-contract price.

Amazon Fire Phone Review: It's Not Terrible, It's Just Pointless

By now, you've probably heard a lot about Amazon's Fire Phone. I figure that most people aren't really curious about what the overall phone is like – if you've used a Kindle Fire/HD/HDX then you already know. It's about Amazon services and a weird launcher layout thing. Most people are curious about the four front-facing cameras and Dynamic Perspective. I'm with you on that – that's exactly what I was curious about before getting this phone for review.
