Best Xbox Emulators For Android In 2019

Remember the original Xbox from years and years ago? It seems like the console has faded out of people’s memories as bigger and brighter things take its place, such as the Xbox 360 right after it, followed by the Xbox One, and now, the Xbox One X. But, if you want to still play with the original Xbox, there is a way that you can: through an emulator. Emulators are great, because they allow you to, well, emulate the experience of the original Xbox. With an emulator, you’ll be able to play all of your favorite Xbox games — Star Wars: The Old Republic, the original Battlefront games, Battlefield, you name it!

But, how can you get such an emulator on your Android device? Truth be told, it’s extremely difficult because Microsoft has such a tight hold on digital rights, hardware rights and basically, just a bunch of red tape. That said, Xbox emulators for Android are far and few between; however, we found one that’ll work just perfectly for this situation.

Installing an Xbox Emulator

To even install an Xbox emulator, there are a few things you should know. First, they aren’t available on the Google Play Store at all. Again, this is largely because of the red tape Microsoft has on the original Xbox. You can find emulators for different consoles a-plenty on the Google Play Store, just not the original Xbox.

That said, to get an Xbox emulator on your Android smartphone, you will need to download an APK from the Internet — this is an Android app, but not one that was approved for the Google Play Store, so proceed at your own risk.

To even download an APK from an unauthorized source, we need to change some Settings within your smartphone. If you’re running Android 4.0 or higher, head into the Settings app. Scroll down to the Security tab, and then make sure “Unknown Sources” is checked. This will allow you to download and install any APK off of the Internet onto your smartphone.

Keep in mind that you should be wary of what APKs you are downloading off of the Internet. Some can be plagued by malware and potentially infect your smartphone; however, do note that, for the most part, you are safe from stuff like this. This is because Android employs a “sandbox” sort of mechanism to keep viruses contained — this prevents them from reaching other parts of your phone and destroying your operating system install of Android.

Downloading the APK

Now, we just need to download the APK file. You can download The Original Xbox Emulator from this link right here (Mega File Sharing).

In some cases, you might need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to download this emulator. That’s easily solved by an application from the Google Play Store. If you download and install FlyVPN (free), you can easily access the Mega site to start the download of the APK. You’ll have to connect up to FlyVPN once the app is installed, though.

Once it is downloaded in your phone, you can either click on the notification or find the file in yours Files app. Once you locate it, simply tap on the completed download, and The Original Xbox Emulator will begin to install. Once the installation is finished, you should be ready to play the original Xbox with an emulator on your smartphone.

Concerning Games and Controls

One element that is worth keeping in mind is that the original Xbox is from a completely different generation. It was a time when people weren’t even thinking about the touch controls we come into contact with everyday now. With that in mind, many of the games you play on this emulator might feel a little wonky or even not work properly. Things might be a little easier if you pick up a Bluetooth (or wired) Xbox controller for Android phones (there are adapters that make this possible) — and make sure that is an original Xbox controller, too.

It’s also worth noting that you might be hard pressed to find games for your Xbox Emulator. You can find ROMs for the Xbox Emulator here — just make sure that they are compatible with Android first (each game will tell you what platform you can use it on).

The CXBX Project

While Microsoft has a pretty tight leash on Xbox emulation, there’s at least one project in the works to get an Xbox emulator up and running. That project is called CxBx Reloaded, and it’s a Windows 10-based program where Xbox emulation should work. At a minimum, you will need 64-bit based Windows 7 at least for this to work. Windows 7 and newer versions of Windows that are 32-bit will not work with CxBx Reloaded.

There are a couple of other important requirements:

  • You need a GPU that at least supports Direct3D 9 (HLE) and OpenGL 3.3 (LLE).
  • Visual C++ 2015 and 2017 redistributables are required for CxBx to run as well. Most people should already have these on a Windows machine,  but sometimes that isn’t the case. So, you can get them here for free. Make sure to install the 32-bit version of the program even if you are on a 64-bit machine, as the 64-bit build does not include both.

There’s one other important thing to note — CxBx is not ready for general release. It’s still in the development stages, but if you’re dying for a proper Xbox emulator, you can try the development version. Keep in mind that it’s a little on the buggy side, with some kinks still to be worked out. Check it out here.

Keep in mind that this is just an emulator, and you will still need ROMs of your favorite original Xbox games to try!

Verdict

By following the steps above, you were able to successfully download and install an Xbox Emulator for Android on your phone. Once again, there are very few original Xbox emulators out on the market because of all the red tape, but this one should work for you just fine.

Or, you can try the CxBx Reloaded emulator, which is an Xbox emulator for Windows. It’s not Android, but still a way you can get around Microsoft’s red tape on Xbox emulation!

5 Best Games Like Total War

There are few games on the market like Total War. Total War takes you through history, allowing you to command massive armies in a conquest to take over regions that the Total War game focuses — i.e. Total War: Shogun focuses on Asian regions, and Medieval Total War focuses on ancient European regions. That said, there are few games like this, though there are a handful that do come close. We wouldn’t say that they have the same mechanics or even the same quality; however, they do play the same, though many of the titles that are like Total War take place in time periods not even close to what some Total War games are in.

If you played the original Total War and love the Total War experience, you can continue that great gameplay in many of the expansions and new Total Wars games that have released. Total War: Shogun, Medieval Total War, Total War: Atilla, Total War: Rome 2 are all great adaptions on the original, but in different historical settings.

That said, if you really want to see what else is out there outside of the Total War franchise, be sure to follow along below. We’ll show you some of our top picks.

Crusader Kings 2

Coming up as number one on our countdown, we have Crusader Kings 2. If you love the conquest involved in Total War, but want something with more politics involved, then you’ll love what Crusader Kings 2 has to offer. You can declare war on other nations and absorb them by force, or you can use economic advantages and marriage to bring other countries into your kingdom.

Crusader Kings 2 focuses on Europe, allowing you to establish your political dynasty within the medieval time period. You’ll be able to bring your kingdom(s) through the highs and lows of the time period, and hopefully bring them to glory.

Europa Univeralis

In second spot, we have Paradox Interactive’s Europa Univeralis. If you’re looking for a great cross between commanding armies, conquest, and politics, Europa Univeralis brings all of these great things together for a riveting journey in renaissance Europe. The game progresses from year to year until you eventually reach the ending years. Players will be able to use their nation for true exploration, trade, warfare and diplomacy. They’ll be able to use all of those mechanics to claim victory.

Buy it now: Amazon

King Arthur

King Arthur is an excellent choice for those that don’t enjoy the politics or technological progression required in Crusader Kings 2 and Europa Univeralis. This one takes place more as a turn-based campaign — similar to Total War — and allows you to command and control thousands of units in real-time battle. On top of that, you have specific heroes that can level up, and can even unlock magical spells to use on the the enemy.

Buy it now: G2A

Imperial Glory

Total War is great for large scale land battles and medieval history; however, if you’re looking for specific time periods and conflicts between nations, you might want to consider what Imperial Glory has to offer. This game focus on the conflict between Britain and Europe, but on top of that, has some interesting sea battles that you can take part in. This is another turn-based world map, so it does operate similarly to Total War.

Imperial Glory is a little rougher graphics-wise;

Knights of Honor

Tired of the turn-based campaign that Total War is so known for? Then you might want to take a break and try some real-time combat in Knights of Honor. Knights of Honor will still allow you to control and command large scale armies; however, it all happens in real-time, which adds a new level of excitement and complexity to the game. Armies have to be micro-managed a little more in order to ensure that you get the best results — coming out on top, of course.

Buy it now: Amazon

Verdict

As you can see, there are a lot of games like Total War, but many of them don’t come close to the genius that is Total War. If you’re looking for something more on the political side of things, Crusader Kings 2 is definitely the way to go. However, if you’re looking for something a little more modern and close to the gameplay of Total War, you might like Ultimate General: Civil War.

5 Best Games Like Pillars Of Eternity

Top-down action role-playing games have become a favorite or staple within the gaming world ever since the original Diablo and Dungeons & Dragons games launched. They allowed players to explore expansive universes, gear up with friends, and take the fight to large, and powerful end-game bosses. Many modern successors have come out of that, including one popular one called Pillars of Eternity.

Pillars of Eternity does have a substantial amount of content available in it, and expansions add plenty more for players do. However, like all things, good things do come to an end, and beating the game might have you looking for some games like Pillars of Eternity. Are there others out there that are like the game? The answer is a resounding yes!

If you’re not sure what your next action RPG should be, here are some excellent games that have similar style and characteristics to Pillars Of Eternity:

Magicka

Magicka is up next decidedly in fourth place. This is another hack ‘n slash RPG, but it takes an extremely satirical position. The graphics are more cartoon-like in nature, and you play as little, colourful wizards. A lighthearted game, you can choose to gear up with four other plays to take the fight to the Dark Wizard in co-op mode.

What makes this game a ton of fun is the unique spell casting system. You’ll be able to discover magic and new spells, cast them, and see unique effects on the screen. They essentially provide you with different ways to defeat your enemies, and some even do more damage for the tougher bosses. On your way to defeating the evil wizard, you’ll be able to find and unlock challenges to keep things fresh and exciting.

Buy it now: Amazon

Torchlight 2

Torchlight 2 has many similarities to the game Diablo. Torchlight 2 was made by Runic Games, some ex-Diablo developers, and so, it’s actually almost the same game as far as mechanics and style go. However, Runic Games took a more lighthearted approach to Torchlight 2, using a more cartoon-looking style to the game. The combat system, spell system, and character progression system is essentially a clone of how Diablo would operate, or even how Pillars of Eternity would work.

There’s an immersive story line in the game as well. Powerful “Ember” is clouding the Earth, bringing all sorts of demons and monsters to the front, eventually plunging the world in chaos. It’s up to you and your band of brothers to stop it.

Buy it now: Amazon

Path of Exile

Many of these games cost money to play; however, Path of Exile is one of the few out there that are entirely free-to-play. There are in-game purchases you can make to make the game more fun; however, all of the game mechanics are there to use for free. You’ll be able to follow the story line, progress your character, explore, and fight monsters, all for free. Once you explore all of the awesome content that the game has to offer, you can continue your journey by upgrading your character and going in Player versus Player battles!

Buy it now: Steam

Diablo 3

And finally, in number one position, we have Diablo 3. If you’re looking for the highlight of the top-down, Action RPG hack ‘n slash genre, this game is it. There’s tons of character customization allowing you to choose from multiple unique races and all different class styles. You can choose to be a Demon Hunter, Paladin, Wizard, Warrior, and many other choices. Once you’re ready, you’ll venture into a world plunged in chaos because of Diablo. You’ll be tasked with uncovering the mysteries and secrets of the world, finding out who Diablo is, and defeating him once and for all.

In typical hack ‘n slash fashion, you’ll hack through hordes of monsters and demons, acquire tons of loot, and explore the expansive universe!

Buy it now: Amazon

Grim Dawn

Grim Dawn comes up as number five on our countdown. Diablo was one of the games that made the Action RPG style popular, and Grim Dawn builds off of that by having a similar “dark” style and theme. Just like Pillars of Eternity and Diablo, there’s an expansive universe that players will be able to explore, journey through, uncover secrets, and fight hordes of demons in. Of course, there’s a rich story line that will keep players intrigued for hours, and side quests help players uncover the secrets of the world of Grim Dawn.

One of the highlights of Grim Dawn is its class system. It has something called a “dual-class” system, which gives your character the ability to combine any of five distinct skill classes. Then, as is common in most RPGs today, you have multiple skill trees that you can choose to specialize in to enhance your character’s abilities. And as you might expect from a hack ‘n slash like this, there are hundreds of items in common, magical, rare, epic and legendary classes of loot that you can collect and customize and upgrade your character with.

Buy it now: Amazon

Verdict

As you can see, there are a lot of excellent alternatives to Pillar of Legacy. Do you have a favorite game like it? Diablo 3 is easily as close as you can get, and definitely one of the best options, in our opinion.

5 Best Games Like Torchlight 2

Runic Games was a company formed after some developers on Blizzard’s Diablo 3 project were looking for something new. Out of that came the Torchlight series, which eventually saw the successor Torchlight 2. It’s a hack and slash game, just like Diablo 3; however, it has a pretty unique graphics set, and there’s a thrilling, but more lighthearted story line. Diablo is more geared towards the adult crowd, but Torchlight and Torchlight 2 can easily be played by children and adults alike, thanks to the more cartoon-style graphics and the lightheartedness to it.

However, just like any game, Torchlight 2, can bore after multiple playthroughs or for when you simply run out of content. That said, you might want to find similar hack and slack style games to play in its place. Here are some of our favorites.

Magicka

Magicka comes up as fourth on our countdown, and is simply a fun hack and slash game with a “magic” twist to it. It’s a lighthearted game, featuring more of a cartoon-style than anything. That said, it’s ideal of players of all ages. There’s a unique spell casting system in the game. You can choose to either play solo, or you can join with up to four friends to play co-op.

There’s a pretty expansive world to explore. There isn’t a super immersive story line; however, the goal is to venture to the “high castle” and defeat the evil, dark wizard. On your way, you’ll be able to find and unlock challenges, items, and powerful spells.

Buy it now: Amazon

Pillars of Eternity

Pillars of Eternity comes up as number three on our countdown. If you’re looking for a top-down single player RPG experience similar to Torchlight 2, this one will be right up your alley. The game actually takes on a similar style to Diablo 3 in terms of graphics and style; that “darker” feel to it. The game comes with the new “Deadfire” expansion pack, which allows players to explore the vast new region, Deadfire. The expansion takes on a sea-theme, bringing a whole new aspect to this action RPG by allowing you to use and navigate your own ship.

Buy it now: Amazon

Path of Exile

Coming up in second place, we have Path of Exile. People looking for a Torchlight 2 alternative might want to try this one first, as the game is completely free to play. Just head over to Steam, make sure you’re logged in, and download! It has that traditional top-down RPG style, and comes with hundreds of character customizations. There are vast lands to explore, tons of different monsters and demons to fight, and a unique and thrilling combat system. On top of that, there are hundreds of items that you’ll be able to use to customize your character, upgrade your skills with, and barter for other items with.

Buy it now: Steam

Diablo 3

Coming up as our number one favorite on our countdown is Diablo 3. Diablo 3 is successor to the hit title, Diablo 2. In Diablo 3, you can create your own character, choose a race, pick a class, and then venture into the fallen world. You’ll be able to follow a rich story line, finding out who Diablo is, and defeating him once and for all. Through your journey, you’ll be able to hack through hordes of monsters, explore new areas, and discover all of the sweet loot that drops. You’ll be able to gain followers, and even take them with you as you discover secret dungeons.

Buy it now: Amazon

Grim Dawn

Grim Dawn takes on a much more gritty style than Torchlight 2. It doesn’t have that cartoon-like style that Torchlight 2 has, and has an overall darker appearance. However, there’s an expansive universe that you’ll be able to explore while fighting away demons and monsters.

Grim Dawn has a unique “dual class” system. It allows you to combine any of five distinct skill classes, and then, as you see in many RPGs, there are multiple skill trees in which to specialize or go down. On top of the unique skill system, there are hundreds of items in common, magical, rare, epic and legendary classes of loot that you can collect and customize your character with.

Buy it now: Amazon

Verdict

Here we’ve shown you five of the best games that are similar to Torchlight 2. Our favorite is easily Diablo 3. It’s the latest in the Diablo series, and is the series that brought the hack-and-slash genre to fame. It has some excellent style to the game, and millions love it. However, the game can be quite pricey, which makes Path of Exile and Pillars of Eternity great alternatives.

How To Find MAC Address On Windows 10

Windows 10

If you’re not familiar with a MAC address you might be interested in more about it and how it affects your computer, as well as how you can go in and change it. Follow along with us below, and we’ll explain just what your MAC address is, what kind of security risks it could have, and even how to find it, and even change it if your hardware supports that.

So without further ado, here we go:

What is a MAC Address?

A MAC address is your IPv4 address and your physical address combined. When you try to access the internet, your wireless card/Ethernet cable sends your MAC address to the router, which then forwards it to the website you’re trying to access. This basically tells the website you’re a real person and not doing anything they wouldn’t want you to do

Why Change Your MAC Address?

There are quite a few reasons to change your MAC address. For one, if your internet card breaks and you get a replacement, you would need to change its MAC address to match the old one, unless you’re willing to wait several days for your internet service provider to approve the new internet card’s MAC address.

Another reason why you’d want to change your MAC address is that there could be security issues. By using simple tools, anyone could steal your MAC address and surf the web, posing as you.

One thing to look out for is the great multitude of false or reasons that don’t hold any weight for changing your MAC address. While there are many legitimate reasons to change your MAC address, don’t feel like you need to change it every week. In some situations of using public Wi-Fi while traveling, or at coffee shops, etc., changing your MAC address may be a good idea to keep hackers and malware at bay.

How to Find Your MAC Address

By simultaneously pressing the windows key and the letter “r”, you will open a command box. By typing in “cmd” and clicking “okay,” it will open a command prompt. Another way to go about doing this is by clicking on the search box at the bottom-left of your screen and typing “cmd.” Then, upon opening command prompt, you will see a line that looks something like this: C:\Users\your username here. You’ll need to type “ipconfig/all” (sans quotation marks), followed by using the enter key, and a bunch of network info will pop up. If you navigate to the bottom of the list of information, you should be able to see IPv4 and a physical address together. They make your MAC address note that both the network card and the Ethernet have two different MAC addresses.

At the bottom of the Command Prompt, you’ll see the IPv4 and the physical address are under “Wireless LAN Adapter Local Area Connection.” The MAC address for your Ethernet cable would be under “Ethernet Adapter” in your command prompt.

How to Change Your MAC Address

Keep in mind some internet cards don’t even let you change your MAC address, but if you have one that does, this is how to do it. If you want to see if this option is available to you, you’ll need to simultaneously press the Windows key and “x.” You’ll open a panel on the left of your screen, locate “Device Manager,” and open it. Locate “Network Adapters,” and click the dropdown. The top item should be your internet card, so right click it and select “properties,” then move to the advanced tab.

There you will be able to see if you can change your MAC address. If you don’t see the option available, your network card probably doesn’t support the ability to change your MAC address.

Verdict

There are lots of good reasons to change your MAC address, but there are also lots of illegitimate reasons as well. While changing it for any reason isn’t going to negatively impact your network card, you could be waiting on your ISP to approve your new MAC address when you didn’t previously ever need to do so.

Changing your MAC address is super easy and doesn’t take a lot of time, but can be really helpful for remembering it later when you change your network card or think you may be at risk to hackers and viruses.

5 Best Wireless Projector With WiFi And Bluetooth

You might picture a projector as something that takes up a ridiculous amount of space, only to output some pretty poor video quality. They’ve been the go-to way for years to play or project a movie onto insanely large screens. And while projectors still do the same thing today, they’ve gotten better — improved video quality, added Bluetooth and WiFi functionality, and they’ve become a whole lot more portable.

Portability and Bluetooth functionality paired together, you can easily carry around a wireless projector with you to play content off of your Android phone. Not sure what the best wireless projectors are with WiFi and Bluetooth? Here are some of our favorite choices — choices that have high lumens for playing in a dark room. Let’s dive right in.

TENKER S6 Mini Cube

Coming up as number five on our countdown, we’re looking at TENKER’s own S6 Mini Cube. Equipped with DLP technology from Texas Instruments, this Cube DLP Projector brings razor sharp pictures and amazing videos with incredible color and brightness. It supports 1080p video files, but nothing higher, unfortunately.

The software is a Linux system with integrated WiFi. It’s actually running off of the 802.11a/b/g/n band for 2.4GHz networks. This means that you can do simultaneous screen mirroring and streaming with no issue. It also means that it works with both Android and iOS — using Miracast for Android devices, and then AirPlay for iOS devices.

The battery is the only disappointing factor here, though it’s hard to complain with how portable this technology is. You only get a 2,600mAh battery, which can only stream video for 1 to 1.5 hours.

Nebula Capsule

Anker, one of the world’s most favorite brands for phone accessories, also makes top of the line projects. One of our favorites is the Nebula Capsule. This is an all-in-one projector and 360-degree speaker combination. It comes equipped with both WiFi and Bluetooth, so using this with your Android or iOS device is a breeze.

It’s a little larger than the TENKER S6 Mini Cube, which makes it slightly more difficult to carry around. Since it’s smaller than a normal projector, the Nebula Capsule is only able to project an image of 100-inches. However, it is better than the S6 Mini Cube in that it can play video for a straight 4 hours. It can also play music for a straight 30 hours.

The Capsule does have app support, which means you can stream all of your favorite content from Hulu and Netflix as well. This one is a little on pricier side, with Amazon having this one listed at around $349.

RIF6 CUBE

One of the smallest projectors yet, the RIF6 CUBE is a high-end, portable way that you can bring the movie theater experience almost anywhere. Even thought it’s tiny, you might be surprised to find out that it’s display reach is 120-inches, even better than the Nebula Capsule. Now, since it is so tiny, it doesn’t have a whole lot lumens inside — just 50, so you won’t be using this in a dark room.

On top of that, the RIF6 CUBE works well with Android tablets and smartphones; however, since it supports HDMI, it works with most HDMI-equipped devices, including laptops and gaming consoles. It weighs over 800 grams, so it’s not exactly the lightest projector either.

Small wireless projectors like these that support WiFi and Bluetooth are pretty pricey, but this is definitely one of the cheaper options — just $229.99 on Amazon.

POYANK LED Wireless Projector

POYANK’s LED Wireless Project comes decidedly in number two position. This is one of our favorites because it has the best lumens for projecting your phone or tablet’s display in a dark room — a whole 2,400, to be specific. Android devices vary from brand to brand; however, you can still use the projector to project your mobile screen to the big screen so long as your phone supports the Project Screen functions.

The wireless projector’s native resolution is 800 x 480; however, it can support higher resolutions like 1920 x 1080. The aspect ratio is 16:9/4:3, with a 2000:1 contrast ratio. The lamp inside should last around 50,000 hours as well.

Buy it now: Amazon

AEHR Mini Projector

Finally, coming in as our number one favorite, we have the AEHR Mini Projector. Don’t let the preview image fool you, this project is as small as an iPhone XS Max. It weights around 0.58lb, so it’s easy to carry around. This one will work with most Android phones and tablets, and has a range of about 120-inches. Bluetooth and WiFi are supported here; however, there are only 100 lumens, so it’s not great for super dark rooms.

Buy it now: Amazon

Verdict

There are a lot of excellent wireless projects for Android on this list. We love the portability of many of these; however, we really like the larger POYANK LED Projector, as it can easily project an image in a dark room with its 2,400 lumens. It really helps with that movie theater experience.

5 Best 2 Din Car Stereo With GPS And Bluetooth

If you’ve been in a new, modern vehicle before, you’ve no doubt seen the new touchscreens that they’re coming equipped with.

Referred to as a “Double Din” or “2 Din Car Stereo”, it actually refers to the space that the radio takes up, usually around 4″ x 8″. If you have this space available — and you should, most vehicles have this space available — you can put a Double Din in your own car. There are tons of options out there. Some of the more expensive ones run Android, but there are others that run a no-name operating system with GPS and Bluetooth functionality for cheaper.

Not sure which one to pick up? Follow along below, and we’ll show you some of the best on the market right now. Here are our favorite picks.

Vicmax Android 8.0 Oreo Octa-Core Stereo

Coming in as our number one choice, we have Vicmax’s own Android 8.0-powered Stereo. This one is one of our favorites because it has everything. Not only does it run Android, but it has 32GB of storage space to store Android apps, music for local playback, video for local playback, and more. If you want something beyond Bluetooth syncing, the car stereo supports WiFi and 4G technology, so you can buy a data plan for streaming on the go. With an Octa-core processor and 4GB of RAM, the interface is quick and responsive. There’s even a multi-window view for doing multiple things on it at once — such as making your music selection while keeping GPS navigation open.

Yes, Vicmax uses Google Maps to give you turn-by-turn GPS navigation. On top of that, there’s OBD support for watching different data sets of your car, such as your battery and if it’s getting weak or not.

BroGoTek 9-inch Android Double Din

BroGoTek also offers a great Android solution for a Double Din in your car. This one gives you a massive 9-inch touchscreen display here, and as you might expect, there’s quick access to things like GPS navigation, music streaming, watching a DVD, and you can even use this for FaceTime-like functionality. Like the Vicmax, this model also comes equipped with 32GB of storage space for playing music or video locally, as well as storing apps. It supports AM/FM radio, as well as calling and texting support.

BOSS Audio BVB9364RC Double Din

Don’t like many of the Android-based Double Dins? Then you’ll want to check out what BOSS Audio is offering in the BVB9364RC. Sitting at an affordable $100, BOSS Audio provides you with support for Bluetooth, GPS navigation, DVD support, and even support for calling and texting features. Since it isn’t Android, there isn’t any Spotify or Pandora that you can stream from; however, you can stream music locally through Bluetooth.

BOSS Audio’s Double Din supports reverse camera backup as well, so this will easily work with many modern systems.

Pumpkin Android 8.0 Car Stereo

Running Android 8.0 Oreo, the Pumpkin Double Din Car Stereo is an excellent option for getting GPS navigation and Bluetooth capabilities in any vehicle. This one does operate as a touchscreen; however, there is a button layout to the left of the screen for quick access options. It is where you can adjust the volume as well. Like some of the others, it has a 32GB hard drive for apps, and playing music and video locally. AM/FM radio is supporting in this one, and you do have support for reverse backup cameras.

Buy it now: Amazon

Pioneer AVH-X390BS Double Din Bluetooth in-Dash

Coming up as last on our list, but certainly not least, Pioneer makes an excellent Double Din for those that want a cheap way to upgrade their car’s stereo system. It isn’t running Android; however, it does have some app support, such as Pandora and Spotify for streaming. You can sync your phone up to this and play music locally as well. You can take calls and send text messages, too. It has Sirius XM support as well.

It uses GPS via your smartphone, so you still get navigation. It is phone dependent, so you will have to make sure your device stays connected.

Buy it now: Amazon

Verdict

Here we’ve shown you the best 2 Din Car Stereos with GPS and Bluetooth functionality. Any one of these will be a massive upgrade from your car’s old stereo setup. With Bluetooth technology, you’ll be able to easily take calls over your car’s sound system. And with GPS features, you’ll be able to get turn-by-turn navigation in the areas that you just don’t know how to navigate.

5 Best Bluetooth MP3 Player With FM Radio

Want to play music over a Bluetooth MP3 player? And maybe while you’re at it, you want some AM / FM functionality to mix up your music choices. For that, you need a Bluetooth transmitter. Bluetooth FM Transmitters are a cheap and easy way to start streaming your MP3 music over Bluetooth, and also giving you access to AM and FM radio.  It’s a plug and play solution as well — plug the transmitter into the cigarette lighter for power. Once you have power, your phone can connect to the transmitter by way of Bluetooth.

Alternatively, you can switch to AM / FM channels to play music or radio. Or, you can set the frequency you set on the transmitter to your car’s radio station. For example, if you choose a 91.3 frequency on the transmitter, change your car’s station to 91.3. Once done, with Bluetooth connected, you can start playing music from your phone, and then it’ll start blasting out your car’s speakers!

It can take a little bit of work to make this operate seamlessly; however, once done, you have an easy way to transit music from your phone to your car’s speakers. Not sure which one you should pick up? Here are some of our top choices.

Nulaxy Wireless In-Car Bluetooth FM Transmitter

Nulaxy comes up first on our list as a personal favorite. It works just like you would expect it would, but with an extra bonus. This one actually comes with a USB port right on the charging unit, which allows you to juice up your smartphone while you stream music with the transmitter. The transmitter itself works with most smartphones on the market right now, as well as most older models. Connect your phone to this transmitter, and start playing your favorite tunes out your speakers. You can even answer phones calls and hear the audio over your car’s speakers.

Buy it now: Amazon

Kinborn Bluetooth FM Transmitter

The Kinborn Bluetooth FM Transmitter comes up in our number two spot. It can essentially do everything that the Nulaxy Wireless In-Car Transmitter is able to do, but it has one major advantage over it: charging capabilities. Got a phone with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset(s)? Then you’ll love that this FM Transmitter also operates as a high-power car charger. Plug your phone into the orange slot, and you’ll get fast Quick Charge 3.0 charging. The Blue spot offers Quick Charge 2.0 charging.

Fast charging is fairly rare in vehicles, so it’s nice to see this addition from Kinborn here. And the best part? This won’t cost you more than $12.

Buy it now: Amazon

JETech Wireless FM Transmitter

Coming up next, we have a rather unique choice — the JETech Wireless FM Transmitter. It’s unique because it operates a little differently than the rest. Instead of Bluetooth, you’re actually using a 3.5mm cable. Connect the 3.5mm cable side of this transmitter to the audio jack on your phone, setup the FM channel you want to broadcast on, tune your radio to it, and you’re ready for that road trip!

It’s still powered by your cigarette lighter, and there’s an additional USB port on the charger so that you can keep your smartphone juiced up as well.

Buy it now: Amazon

VicTsing Bluetooth FM Transmitter For Car

In fourth place, we have the VicTsing Bluetooth Transmitter. This is another unique one — it plugs directly into your cigarette lighter. Then, on the side of the Bluetooth Transmitter itself, you have two USB ports — one for presumably transferring data between the two devices, and the other for charging your phone. If you wanted, you could actually plug in a microSD card full of your favorite tunes, or even a USB flash drive. It’s multi-functional in this sense. You can even use the 3.5mm audio jack port, which is better at saving battery life, whereas Bluetooth streaming can drain your phone quickly.

Buy it now: Amazon

IMDEN Bluetooth FM Transmitter For Car

And finally, we have IMDEN’s own Bluetooth FM Transmitter. This one is another unique choice, taking on a different style than the others. This one is low profile, literally looking and appearing like a car charger. It has a small LED display that simply shows you what FM station you’re transmitting, and that can be changed with the button on the side. You can play music with a USB drive if you so choose, but you can also connect your phone up by way of Bluetooth. On top of that, there’s a port for keeping your phone juiced up.

Buy it now: Amazon

Verdict

If you’re looking for a Bluetooth MP3 player With FM radio, any one of these options will help you accomplish your goals. If your car doesn’t have Bluetooth already, one of these transmitters will add Bluetooth to your car, allowing you to stream your favorite music over wireless.

5 Best SD Card Reader For Android

Got an SD card, but don’t have a way to insert it into your camera or computer? Manufacturers are slowly getting rid of this medium of storage, mostly to make room for other technologies; however, it leaves those who rely on SD card storage out in the water. But don’t lose hope yet — it’s like there’s a hardware accessory to solve every problem, and this time, that accessory is an external SD card reader. These hook up to your computer via USB, and you can use adapters to hook them up to other accessories, such as phones.

Not sure what the best SD card reader for Android is? Follow along below, and we’ll show you some of our top choices. Let’s dive right in.

UGreen SD Card Reader

Coming up as our number one choice, we have the UGreen SD Card Reader. This is one reader for multiple cards. There are actually four card slots, which allow you to read and transfer data from the following formats: SDXC/SDHC/SD/Extreme I & III, SD/Ultra II, SD/MMC/RS-MMC, Micro SD/TF/Micro SDXC/Micro SDHC/UHS-I, or CF I 3.0/4.0 /Extreme I III CF.  There are a lot of formats it can support, and it’s easily used with laptops, computers, and Android phones. It has a plug and play style, with no drivers needed.

Buy it now: Amazon

COASD Card Reader

Second on our countdown is the COASD Card Reader. Designed for Android phones that don’t operate on USB-C, this one supports micro USB phones, and can plug into a USB-A port on a laptop or computer. The card reader is compatible with all tablets and Android smartphones that support that micro-USB tech. It’s an overall compact card reader that supports all standard SDHC/SDXC and micro SD/micro SDHC/micro SDXC formats. However, it won’t support cards that are over 64GB in size, mostly because of the limited power current that phones can provide.

Buy it now: Amazon

Anker Portable Card Reader

Anker has their own Portable Card Reader as well. This one won’t read directly from an Android phone; however, you can take your phone’s microSD card and put it in this card reader, and then plug it into a laptop or computer in order to extract the files that you were storing externally on your Android phone. It’s able to simultaneously read and write on two cards, which saves yourself time and the frustration of moving SD cards around. With USB 3.0 technology, you should get data transfer rates that reach all the way up to 5Gbps.

Buy it now: Amazon

Transcend Card Reader

Transcend’s Card Reader comes up next, and is a bit larger of a reader than the others we’ve shown you so far. Plug your USB cable of choice into this card reader, and you’ll be able to use it with any Android phone on the market. It supports USB 3.0 speeds, but is backwards compatible to USB 2.0. This one supports SDHC (UHS-I), SDXC (UHS-I), microSD, microSDHC (UHS-I), and microSDXC (UHS-I). It comes loaded with data recovery software in the event that you have an SD card or microSD card that is faulty, but you want to recover the data off it.

Samsung 256GB EVO Plus microSDXC Adapter

Coming in as our number five choice on our list, this one isn’t quite an SD card reader. Designed by Samsung, this is the company’s very own EVO Plus microSD card. If you don’t have a way to fit your microSD cards in a normal, full-size SD platform, this one comes with an SD adapter that you can insert any microSD card in. Then, you’ll be able to use your microSD cards as a normal full-size card. The microSD card this package comes with gives you 256GB of storage.

It has really quick data transfer rates inside, allowing you to get around 100Mbps in read speeds out of this. You could see as much as 90Mbps in write.

Buy it now: Amazon

Verdict

As far as SD card readers go, they all help you achieve essentially the same means. That said, any one of these will help you accomplish the goals that you’re trying to reach. However, if you’re looking for more of an SD adapter than a SD card reader, you’ll definitely want to go with our last option from Samsung, as that’ll bring you a a microSD card / SD adapter combo that can fit a microSD card in a SD slot.

5 Best HDMI Adapter For Android Phone

Back when Android was first starting out, many phones had what was called a mini-HDMI port, which allowed users to easily display their phone’s screen to an external monitor, and even a TV screen. It was a seamless technology, though it didn’t last long as manufacturers started getting rid of hardware functions in favor of better processing power and battery life.

However, that doesn’t mean that you’re out of luck for getting your phone’s display on an external screen — there are plenty of HDMI adapters out there for Android phones that bring you that same functionality, except through the phone’s USB-C or micro-USB port.

Now, you do have to be careful what you pick up, as some accessories aren’t built with the necessary quality. That said, we don’t the research for you — follow along below, and we’ll show you our top five picks for HDMI adapters. Let’s dive right in.

ZIKO Adapter For Android

In first place on our countdown, we’re looking at the ZIKO Adapter for Android. The nice thing about this particularly brand is that the ZIKO Adapter works without any extra software — it’s a simple plug and play solution. Simply plug the adapter into your Android device, and then plug it into a supported monitor or TV. Content is instantly displayed on the external screen.

ZIKO says that this one can only support certain applications, as some of this is developer-dependent. ZIKO says you’ll have no issue with using apps like Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, and Google Play Movies, though it may not work with some no-name application with little recognition. In addition, you’ll need to make sure you’re using a supported TV. As an added bonus, it comes with a Lightning adapter in the event that you want to use it with an iPhone or iPad, too.

RayCue HDMI Plug and Play Adapter

In second position on our list, we have RayCue’s very own Micro USB to HDMI Plug and Play Adapter.

5 Best SD Card For Android Phone

In today’s world, we’re using more and more storage space, whether that be for photos, videos, apps, games, and so on. Our phones sometimes don’t have the native space necessary to hold all of that, and so, an SD for Android phones might be a more economical way to expand that and give you more space. Android phones don’t support full-size SD cards though, they support its miniature brother, microSD cards. However, many microSD card packages come with an SD card adapter so that you can also use the microSD card in other applications, such as with a camera.

5 Best Flash Drive For Android Phones

Manufacturers have realized that 16GB just isn’t enough space for anyone. With so many photos and videos on our phones, we go through that storage space insanely quickly. That’s why many phone manufacturers only offer their devices in 32GB above. For some, that’s still not enough space, so it might be worth offloading those photos onto a flash drive for storing elsewhere.

Coming up as number one on our countdown, we’re looking at the USB Type-C Flash Drive Adapter by nonda. Nonda is the perfect device for transferring photos, videos, and other files to and from your Android smartphone. It operates on USB 3.0 technology, so it can move photos and videos around rather quickly. Since it is a USB Type-C adapter, the nonda will only be able to work with phones that have a USB-C port, which is basically all modern smartphones these days.

This one will work with all USB-C devices. You can plug it directly into laptops and computers that a USB-C port to transfer files; however, if you still are using USB-A ports on your laptop and computer, you’ll have to find a separate USB-A to USB-A cable for that.

In second place on our countdown, we have the 128GB Data Traveler by Kingston. This one is a neat flash drive for Android phones because it doesn’t require any extra cables like the option from Nonda.

5 Best Aux To Bluetooth Adapter For Car

Want to play your music from your smartphone to your car? No problem! Many modern vehicles allow you to do this directly through Bluetooth or even from an auxiliary port. Unfortunately, the majority of vehicles on the road right now (2010 and before) — except for a couple of exceptions — don’t often have Bluetooth capabilities, meaning your stuck with what the AM/FM radio is playing, or you’ll have to settle for being hooked up by wire via a auxiliary port.

Luckily, there’s a hardware solution for everything, which is why you need a Aux to Bluetooth adapter for your car. It works quite easily — you just plug in your Bluetooth Aux Adapter to the car’s 3.5mm port, then you can connect up to it with your phone’s Bluetooth connection. Once you’re connected up, you can start playing any type of audio you want over Bluetooth — music, podcasts and more!

Not sure what Bluetooth Aux Adapter to pick up for your car? If you follow along below, we’ll show you some of our favorite options. Let’s dive right in!

Mpow Bluetooth Aux Adapter And Receiver

Coming up as number one on our countdown, we’re looking at the Mpow Bluetooth Aux Adapter and Receiver. Plug it in to the auxiliary port, give it power, and you’re ready to connect up your phone to this adapter — that’s all there is to it!

You’ll just need to make sure that your car is playing audio from the auxiliary port. You can swap this around by pressing the “Band” button or CD/AUX button in your car. From there, just start playing any music you want. This option from Mpow comes with a built-in microphone for taking hands-free calls as well. The audio from the other person will still plays over the car speakers, so you won’t even have to pick up your phone.

Buy it now: Amazon

Taotronics Bluetooth Aux Adapter

In second position on our list, we have a little bit of a beefier unit — the Bluetooth Aux Adapter by Taotronics. It works similarly to how the Mpow Bluetooth Aux Adapter works, only you’ll need an AUX to AUX cord with it — one end to plug into your car, and the other into this adapter. Once plugged in, you can connect it to your phone by way of Bluetooth, and you’re ready to start playing audio out of your car’s speakers. Taotronics options is pretty versatile in that it works over RCA as well.

The “con” to the Taotronics option is that it has to be charged up separately. The battery is rated for about 55 hours, though we imagine that that all depends on how much music you’re streaming.

Buy it now: Amazon

Taotronics 15 Hour Bluetooth Aux Adapter

In third position on our countdown, we have another choice from Taotronics — this one is actually a  little cheaper because it’s not as high-end as a unit. This low profile option is actually designed to last for 15 hours of straight music streaming. You don’t need a separate cable, as it plugs directly into a 3.5mm auxiliary port. There’s a button right on the adapter for play/pause, which also functions as a take call/hang up call button.

That said, just like the Mpow we mentioned earlier, there is a microphone built right into the adapter, which will allow you to talk to friends and family without ever picking up your smartphone.

Buy it now: Amazon

Tvird Bluetooth Adapter

The option for Tvird comes up as fourth on our list, and it’s a little bit more of a modern style Bluetooth adapter. It comes in a disc style, with a 3.5mm cord hanging out of it. Plug it in into the port, and then you can let the disc set on a cup holder, or somewhere else that is inconspicuous — it has grips on the bottom of it, which keeps it stable during a ride through even the roughest of terrain out there.

Just like the Taotronics options on this list, this adapter does support hands free calling — there’s a button you can press to take calls and end calls. You, of course, have a microphone inside of it as well. The battery should last for around 10 hours of nonstop streaming — you will have to charge it separately after you run out.

Buy it now: Amazon

Gold Armour Bluetooth Aux Adapter And Receiver

Finally, but certainly not least, we have the Gold Armour Bluetooth Aux Adapter. This one is probably one of the best on our list, as it actually allows you to connect up to two devices by way of Bluetooth — it is intelligently able to tell which one you’re streaming from. On the other hand, you could connect up two pairs of headphones and listen to the music outputting. It’s got a 3.5mm audio jack in the event that you want to hook it up to the car as well.

You don’t have to worry about going out and buying separate cables either — Gold Armour includes everything you need in the package.
