I never would have expected LG's Tone lineup of Bluetooth headsets to reach the kind of popularity that it has. The goofy around-the-neck design looks awkward and cumbersome and I personally prefer a more freeing design like the Plantronics BackBeat GO or Jaybird Bluebuds series. But what do I know? People not only bought 20 Million of LG's Tones, they also seem to like them, at least based on various reviews of the different models. And that's why LG keeps reiterating on the design.
The latest is the Tone Studio, which was announced at CES 2017. It takes the original around-the-neck earphone design and... adds four speakers. Read More
They say "a picture is worth a thousand words" and today that could not be more astute. Atari has just released their latest cash-in of the RollerCoaster franchise, and yeah, I feel just as unhappy about it as the little sim pictured above. This is absolutely nothing like last year's solid release of RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic, as it looks to be closer to (or almost exactly the same) as RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile. Read More
The Nokia 6 is not really a new phone, but its international availability is fairly recent. To celebrate, JerryRigEverything puts the phone to his durability tests to see if it lives up to its namesake's reputation for resilience to a nuclear apocalypse. Hint: It does. Read More
I listen to music when I am doing most any activity, especially for work, school stuff, and the gym. Sometimes, though, it's difficult to find the right artist or playlist that suits my particular mood at a given moment. Luckily, Google Play Music has those suggestions throughout the day for various activities, and a similar feature has arrived for the Home app. Read More
You probably have at least a few power strips laying around, and maybe a phone dock or USB charging station too. This... thing from Bestek is all three combined. Now you can get it for just $16 on Amazon with a coupon code. Read More
I wanted to review one of Lenovo's unique tablet-with-a-kinda-sorta-keyboard-touchpad models as soon as I saw them. My Android Police colleagues thought the core idea behind the Yoga A12 was dumb, saddling the flexibility of a tablet with the extra size and weight of a laptop while taking away its greatest advantage, a full keyboard. So I asked Lenovo for a review unit. They told me no. That probably should have been a second hint that this wasn't going to be an especially impressive product. Read More
When we had our hands-on look at the latest Samsung tablet, we guessed that it would be priced to compete with the 10-inch version of the iPad Pro, if only because its included stylus and sold-separately keyboard seemed intended to appeal to that same "productive" tablet niche. Thanks to an early listing from Best Buy (since Samsung still hasn't given us a straight answer), we now know that yes, indeed it will. The Galaxy Tab S3 starts at $599.99 USD for the Wi-Fi model.

The Pixel and Pixel XL are the best phones Google has ever made. Good luck actually buying one, though. This is something we've been able to say about every phone Google has released, but the Pixel's supply issues seem much more pervasive than any of the Nexus phones were. After nearly five months on sale, the Pixel just went out of stock on the Google Store yet again. Read More
V-MODA announced the newest member of its audio product portfolio today, the REMIX, the company's first Bluetooth speaker. It's available for purchase starting today and retails for $300. Measuring in at around 8 inches long and 1.6-1.9lbs (depending on which finish you chose), the speaker is portable, but not petite. At $300, the REMIX is at the top end of the price spectrum for mid-size Bluetooth speakers but V-MODA feels the price is justified by top-notch sound and a couple of unique features.
The most compelling feature the REMIX offers is something you won't find in any other speaker on the market. Read More
