Last week, Artem took the Primo Power Core 8200mAh portable battery pack for a spin, and he really liked it. But as good as it may be, for some, 8200mAh may be overkill. With that in mind, I took on the Scosche 5000mAh goBAT II portable charger and backup battery to see how well it would fuel my devices during everyday use.
At A Glance
First off, lets take a look at what this power pack has to offer. Read More
As I'm not one to enjoy doing large amount of typing on my mobile phone, I have a number of applications that make the job easier. These apps are usually employed to make quick, short notes that I can index and access later, therefore saving me a lot of trouble.
Coming to us from Singaporean developer 2nd Class Citizen, that's exactly what Chop Chop looks to do, only with some unique features the differentiate it from the rest. Read More
Ruggedized - doesn't the word just conjur up images of a tiger eating a Toughbook?
When I received the J4M headphones from JLab, I was unsure of how "rugged" an in-ear headphone could actually be. So, I decided to treat them less than, shall we say, "gently" over the last few weeks.
Now, it's not like I've gone dunking them in water or buried them in sand at the beach - that kind of behavior is at your own risk. Read More
A little less than a week ago, Artem shared his thoughts on the keyboard dock for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Since this was before the official TouchWiz UX (our review) came out, I figured it deserved another go, as the update fixed several issues.
I'm only going to take on the things that were software related issues this go around, as other aspects (like design) have already been covered. Read More
App developers, I think it's time we put a moratorium on the titling of games with "(Adjective) (Animal)", don't you think? It's getting a bit tired, and trying to emulate Angry Birds doesn't really do you any favors.
Anyway, on to the review.
Greedy Spiders is a turn-based puzzle game in which you are looking to save flies from their grisly demise at the hands of the aforementioned Greedy Spiders. I believe the fact that the spiders are greedy has to be highlighted, because otherwise you are just preventing them from eating. Read More
If there is one thing I constantly have to think about on a pretty much daily basis, it's juice. Not the kind of juice you pour yourself in the morning at breakfast, but the kind that is needed to power by insatiable electronics on the go. Last August, Phonesuit sent me a review unit of their 1000 mAh Primo Cube, but this year they really stepped up their game and sent over a whopping 8200 mAh portable charger called the Primo Power Core, compared to which the Cube is a mere drop in the bucket.

It has been nearly a day since Samsung pushed the TouchWiz UX update to retail Galaxy Tab 10.1 units across the country, and having spent most of the day playing with it, I want to share my thoughts on it with all of you.
Before we get into the details, though, I want to address one important thing: root access. My Tab 10.1 was rooted (stock ROM and kernel) with ClockworkMod recovery before the update started rolling out, so I was naturally hesitant to pull it for fear of losing root privileges. Read More
It seems to be a busy Friday afternoon around the Android Police offices, but we've managed to keep an eye on one game that's made its debut on the Android Market.
Star Blitz is a game by Glu Mobile that plays an awful lot like their previous title, Gun Bros. In essence, one on-screen joystick controls the steering of your ship while the other controls a laser. Like Gun Bros, you are faced with a number of waves of enemies, who upon defeat will drop experience and money. Read More
