For years, there has been a small but passionate group of consumers that value one thing above all else in a phone: battery life. Devices like ASUS' Zenfone 3 Max and the Huawei Mate 9 deliver tremendous capacity, but it isn't always enough. Sometimes you want the best of both worlds, a flagship with the biggest possible battery. For the former, there's always Samsung's latest Note8. To satisfy the latter, the BrexLink 5,500mAh Galaxy Note8 battery case comes in.
Not only does the BrexLink case for the Note8 give you an extra 5,500mAh, significantly extending your battery capacity, but it also provides the protection you need. Read More
If there's one thing our readers love more than phones, it's a phone giveaway. And if there's one thing they like more than that, it's an international phone giveaway. Huawei and Android Police have teamed up to give one lucky reader, from anywhere in the world, a Mate 9. Whatever far-flung destination you have in mind, Huawei's phone is up for the trip. And once it's there, you can even use it to enter into the Huawei Museum photo contest. Read More
USB Type-C is the way of the future, and the new port can already be found in a vast array of laptops, phones, tablets, and other devices. But if you're like me, you probably have a ton of microUSB cables collected over the years, but hardly any Type-C cables. If that sounds familiar, you're in luck, because we've partnered with BrexLink to giveaway 15 packs of the company's Type-C USB 3.0 cables and Type-C to microUSB adapters. Read More
The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is really expensive. $900 is quite a lot of money, especially for something as fragile as a smartphone. One drop could mean the end of your shiny new device, or at least a very expensive repair job. Thankfully, Zizo makes some fantastic cases for the Note8 (they're even available on Amazon), and we're giving away 30 of their Zizo BOLT cases! Read More
There are plenty of ways to protect your phone. You could buy a case, or a screen protector, or duct-tape it to your hand so you never drop it. But one surge of electricity during a storm, and your shiny new device can become a brick. You might already use surge protectors around your home for computers and other large electronics, but what about your portable devices? BESTEK has two fantastic surge protectors with built-in USB ports, and we're giving away 20 of them (10 of each).
This contest is now over.
The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future.
Sometimes an otherwise perfect hardware experience is ruined by a bit of bad software. Launchers can make or break your phone experience, and a lot of OEMs continue to ship otherwise fantastic phones with a lackluster homescreen. Thanks to the fine folks at TeslaCoil Software, though, that's no problem. Nova Launcher is always there to provide a pleasant, performant, and customizable experience. The Prime version of the app is usually $5, but we've teamed up with TeslaCoil Software to give 50 lucky readers a free code. Read More
