    ZTE Axon 7 Mini Review

    ZTE knocked it out of the park with the Axon 7, so introducing a smaller version of the Axon 7 was the logical next step. However, not everything is the same under the hood with the Axon 7 Mini. Everything from the processor to the display have all been downgraded. Fortunately, that means that the […]

    HTC is coming in with another new smartphone, the HTC Bolt, just in time for the holidays. The company has partnered up with sprinter Usain Bolt to promote the new phone, but it’s the phone’s swimming abilities that might prove most attractive — it’s one of the few water-resistant Android smartphones to be released this year.

    Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe Review

    The Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe is a big phone, but not in a bad way. Asus’s latest flagship phone manages to pack a large 5.7″ display into a svelte .3″ aluminum unibody design with diamond cut edges that weighs just six ounces. When you hold it, it feels too light to be that big, and we […]

    ZTE’s Crowdsourced Phone Has Eye Tracking and an Adhesive Back

    In August, ZTE launched their CSX Project, an attempt to create a phone using design suggestions from anyone who joined their Z-Community forum. The contest took in hundreds of ideas and involved voters from 176 countries, but ZTE managed to whittle it down to five before putting things a vote. The community has spoken, and […]

    LeEco is a new name to the United States, but don’t consider it an upstart — formerly Letv, the company that started off as a streaming content provider has grown into a behemoth in its native China.

    Pixel XL Review: Android’s yardstick

    It’s the end of an era. After seven generations, the Nexus brand is no more. This year, Google gives us Pixel and Pixel XL, the first phones developed by the company in-house, and sold without any kind of co-branding. With prices ranging between $649 and $869, these are expensive devices, and the company is betting […]

    The ZTE Axon 7 Mini Is Available for Preorder Starting Today

    We think the ZTE Axon 7 is one of the best smartphone deals of the year, combining top-notch specs with maybe the best smartphone speaker system and a mid-range price tag. The miniature version we saw at IFA is no slouch, either — it’s a smaller phone with mid-range specs, but it’s cheaper and still has […]

    Huawei Nova Plus Review

    At IFA in September, Huawei announced a pair of new mid-range smartphones, introducing their Nova line. But, the Nova Plus and the Nova only seem to share a name — Huawei used different designs for the two phones, on top of making one bigger than the other. While the Nova looks more like Huawei’s Nexus 6P, […]

    Nextbit Robin Review

    At the beginning of the year, we saw an unexpected new competitor in the smartphone market. Nextbit was created by ex-Google employees Tom Moss and Mike Chan, who got funding from Google Ventures and a successful Kickstarter campaign for their debut smartphone, Robin. Despite all that Google expertise, this isn’t a phone that hews closely to […]

    Huawei Nova Review – It’s the Mini Nexus 6P

    Announced alongside the larger Nova Plus at IFA 2016, the Huawei Nova bears an uncanny resemblance to the Nexus 6P. That shouldn’t come a much of a surprise considering Huawei actually manufactures the 6P for Google. With its similar diamond cut edges and aluminum body, the Nova is essentially a smaller version of the 6P […]

    Mophie Wireless Juice Pack Bundle Review

    There is a secret all us iPhone die-hards rarely admit aloud. We are totally jealous of other brands’ wireless charging capabilities. We love our iPhones, but we are still slumming it with archaic charging chords that aren’t long enough. Worse still, the battery life leaves much to be desired. Well, if by the middle of the […]
