LineageOS comes to the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Note10 families

LineageOS comes to the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Note10 families

LineageOS is the custom ROM version of Android for when you throw your phone's original software away and say "screw it, I'm gonna load my OWN Android, with blackjack and hookers." We keep an eye on Lineage to let you know when it's come to new devices, but these are frequent enough (and sometimes inconsequential enough) that ain't nobody got time to do them one by one anymore. Here's a bunch of new devices that have received their first builds over the last six weeks.

Razer's new ANC headphones slice the price of the original pair in half

Razer's new ANC headphones slice the price of the original pair in half

Razer released its first pair of ANC-equipped headphones last year, and to our surprise, they were actually quite the value. At $200, its Opus headset managed to undercut the competition, delivering excellent sound quality and noise cancellation without breaking the bank. Razer's looking to pull away from the pack for the second year in a row, cutting the price of its brand-new set of headphones in half.

One of the best ways to game on Android is finally affordable with this Amazon deal

One of the best ways to game on Android is finally affordable with this Amazon deal

Listen, mobile games: you gave it the old college try with touch-screen controls. Sometimes, sure, it worked OK, but more often than not we found ourselves craving the sort of responsive input you only get with a proper, physical controller. Luckily there are plenty of solutions available to Android gamers, and one of the better ones is Razer's Kishi. Normally retailing for $80, earlier this week we spotted it for a much more reasonable $55, and if you haven't jumped on it yet, that deal's still available.

Razer's Bluetooth glasses are cheaper than Bose's and come with interchangeable lenses

Razer's Bluetooth glasses are cheaper than Bose's and come with interchangeable lenses

If I told you that Razer is making something it calls "smart glasses" (and if you were a cynical and jaded follower of tech news), you might ask, "but where do the RGB lights go?" The answer is nowhere. Surprisingly, Razer's new Anzu smart glasses don't feature any. They're essentially a riff on Bose's Bluetooth audio sunglasses, and they don't feel especially gamer-focused.

The nearly universal Razer Kishi mobile gamepad is $66 ($14 off) right now

The nearly universal Razer Kishi mobile gamepad is $66 ($14 off) right now

Android supports basically every popular Bluetooth gamepad you can buy, including those made for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. But those aren't super portable, and you'll either need a clip or some kind of kickstand to comfortably use them. Razer's Kishi gamepad, on the other hand, folds down to a size that'd comfortably fit in a jacket pocket and clips onto your phone for easy use. If that sounds up your alley, you're in luck: it's on sale for $66 today, $14 off its usual price.

Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro review: Not enough bang for your 200 bucks

Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro review: Not enough bang for your 200 bucks

Razer released its first fully-wireless Bluetooth earbuds last year, the Hammerhead True Wireless. The earbuds were functional enough, but they ultimately failed to stand out against competing products from Apple and Samsung. Razer has now returned with an upgraded model: the Hammerhead True Wireless Pro.

Razer's new earbuds feature an in-ear design, support for active noise cancellation, and the same low-latency Gaming Mode. However, battery life is still a sore point, Gaming Mode isn't incredibly useful, and there's no support for Qualcomm aptX.

Razer's new earbuds have active noise cancellation and low-latency Gaming Mode

Razer's first foray into fully-wireless earbuds came last year, with the release of the Hammerhead True Wireless. It was a decent first attempt, but there was plenty of room for improvement. Now Razer has released an upgraded model, taking design cues from Apple's AirPods Pro and adding must-have features like active noise cancellation.
