Moto 360 Review: Better Than You Feared, Worse Than You Hoped

From the very first day Android Wear was in the news, the Moto 360 has been "the one to wait for." Every time we posted a story about the G Watch or the Gear Live, the comments were populated with no fewer than a million people declaring their intention to wait for Motorola's round smartwatch. Well, the wait was a bit longer than expected, but the Moto 360 has finally arrived.

HP Slatebook 14 Lightning Review: Android On A Laptop Isn't As Bad As You Might Think

Android is showing up on a lot of different devices these days - some of which make more sense than others. While I don't necessarily want my favorite mobile OS running on my fridge or oven, I'm willing to give it a shot on something that makes at least a little more sense, like HP's Slatebook 14, for example. The idea is simple: it's a 14-inch Tegra 4-powered laptop running Android.

Soundfreaq Double Spot Review: Because Two Speakers Are Better Than One

Almost a year ago, I reviewed the Soundfreaq Sound Spot, a speaker that's mid-century modern design is eye-catching to some (like myself) and not so appealing to others. As polarizing as the design may be, though, there's no denying that it's a killer little speaker for the money. For this year, Soundfreaq doubled up on the speakers, added a couple of new tricks, kept the same sexy design, and called it the Double Spot.

UNU Ultrapak Tour Fast-Charging External Battery Review: A Quarter Horse, Not A Thoroughbred

There's only so much you can say about portable batteries. Power goes in, power goes out, phone charges up. Here at Android Police, we generally just recommend that people buy the biggest battery with the smallest price tag, which usually ends up being one of the various Anker models sold on Amazon. But manufacturer UNU is trying to shake things up with the new Ultrapak Tour series, which they claim charge in a fraction of the time of standard external lithium-polymer battery packs.

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.
