Whether you prefer to call them fitness trackers, activity trackers, fitness bands or perhaps smart bands, these poor men’s smartwatches are spreading like wildfire. According to the International Data Corporation, three of the four wearable industry-leading manufacturers in Q3 2015 were specialized in such basic, low-cost gadgets, with Fitbits somehow managing to even beat the
It’s undoubtedly stressful, time-consuming and outright annoying to devise a holiday shopping list nowadays, as so many retailers are struck with Thanksgiving, Black Friday and/or Cyber Monday deal fever. But that’s where we come in. No more worrying you’ll miss the bargain of a lifetime by getting an extra hour or two of sleep after
The Weather Channel is currently forecasting another adequately warm week on both the East and West Coast of the United States, with the occasional drizzle likely to interrupt your sunbathing enterprises from time to time. But it’s legitimately raining deals over at Amazon, and the emphasis mostly falls on Android gear that was already fairly
Inclined to wait and see what the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, Note 5 and LG G4 Pro are all about before committing to a new daily driver device? Perhaps interested more in the looming third-gen Motorola Moto G? Still convinced Android tablets have a thriving future, despite all the signs suggesting the exact opposite?
Some say 4 GB RAM is overkill for today’s smartphones. Others feel they don’t even need 3 gigs. After all, Android Lollipop was specifically optimized to work smoothly on 1 GB memory systems, right? Yeah, well, that didn’t quite go as planned, based on rampant recent reports of 5.0-induced memory bleeds, but nonetheless, you’ll hear
No better way to start off a new, long, tedious work week on the right foot than finding the perfect distraction at the best possible price. Be honest, you all like to clear a few Candy Crush levels when the boss man isn’t watching, catch up on your favorite TV shows during lunch break on
It all looks like a no-brainer. Essentially each and every Android power user in the market for a new “handheld PC” seems to be after Samsung’s Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge. The LG G3 is dated, although not by much, the G Flex 2 continues to keep an inexplicably low profile, while Sony’s Xperia Z3
Before they actually start shipping via online retailers, and before they pop up in physical stores nationwide, Samsung’s newest mobile powerhouses still have one final hurdle to clear. Make that two. LG’s unsung hero pair. Yes, the aging continuously maturing G3 and grossly overlooked 2015 edition of the original “banana phone”, aka G Flex 2.
You’ve seen them pitted against HTC’s new hero device, a handy comparison highlighted the huge gap and copious upgrades operated on the disappointing Galaxy S5, and albeit it was an apple to orange correlation for the most part, we tried our best to match them up to the Note 4 and Note Edge for your
One of the most irritating, debated, often echoed and outright bogus myths of the 21st century retail world is the so-called post-holidays slump. Slump, slip, decline, recession, whatever, it’s just not real. Yes, some people tighten the belt after excessively spending during the holidays, and some retailers avoid January price cuts after slimming down their
So you bought yourself a cool new phone, an inexpensive Android tablet and perhaps a cool, futuristic hybrid too. Got everyone you care about something special as well, yet it still feels there’s more to buy as long as retailers nationwide are having Christmas promos and yard sales. But surely, there’s little left in the
There’s no more denying it. Wearable devices are the next big thing in mobile tech, and it’s just a matter of time until they’ll start competing with “old-fashioned” smartphones for mainstream popularity. We still don’t expect them to have a similar impact on handheld sales as tablets hurt conventional computers, but they will take a
Black Friday 2014 is almost upon us, and we were this close to send y’all out for your holiday Android shopping without consideration for carrier deals. Rookie mistake on our part, and we apologize for it, although in our defense, it was only in the last couple of days that the promotions started cascading from
Stacking up on LTE-enabled gear for the cold season and would love to have something left in your bank accounts at the end of the holiday shopping season? Don’t want to make the choice between a spanking new Android tablet and food, as you’re afraid you’ll die of starvation playing Temple Run 2? Then maybe
