Project Astoria Might Not be a Thing Anymore

Project Astoria Might Not be a Thing Anymore

Microsoft has an app problem. A big one. If you’re a Windows Phone user, you’re all too familiar with it. With Windows 10 on the way (well, mostly already here), Microsoft has a number of strategies in place to close the so-called “app gap”. Just to get it out of the way, let’s talk about the universal app strategy. The universal app strategy is the idea that a developer can create one app that works…

Microsoft on Android: Arrow Launcher

Microsoft on Android: Arrow Launcher

More and more people are speculating that Android is Microsoft’s plan B. Whether or not this is true, and we can talk until we’re blue in the face about how bad it would be for Microsoft’s ecosystem, but the evidence is clearly there. Of course, Microsoft supports their own apps in Android, such as OneDrive, OneNote, Skype, Office, and so on, but they’ve also put quite a lot of effort into a few Android projects…

iPhone 6S Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Comparison

iPhone 6S Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Comparison

This is a comparison that I’ve been wanting to write for awhile. Unfortunately, as the comparisons I write become more and more extensive, they take longer and longer to write. I compared the iPhone 6S to the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Unfortunately, the iPhone 6S failed me. I found that the battery life was terrible. I also found that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 had a better camera than the iPhone 6S for a number…

Google Confirms that Chrome OS is Not Going Away

Google Confirms that Chrome OS is Not Going Away

Over the last week or so, many people have come to me asking about what the fate of their Chromebooks would be. Thousands of blogs were copying a single source, who’s source was “people familiar with the matter”. I didn’t believe it. I still don’t. That’s why I never wrote about the rumor. In fact, the headlines read “Google to Fold Chrome OS into Android”, rather than “Google Might Fold Chrome OS into Android”.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow on the 2013 Nexus 7

Android 6.0 Marshmallow on the 2013 Nexus 7

The Nexus 7 is a bit of a cult classic. There’s always a rumor floating around that Google is going to make another one, despite the fact that they now make a 6″ Nexus phone. Even iOS fans love the Nexus 7. It was the $200 alternative to buying a $500 iPad. There were plenty of iPhone/Nexus 7 users. But the Nexus 7’s day has come and gone. Many are saying that Android 6.0 Marshmallow…

Seriously HTC? WTF?

Seriously HTC? WTF?

The world of smart phones around us is rapidly changing. You might not see it, but it really is. It was only three years ago that Phonebloks was first heard of. Everyone was super excited at the concept of a modular smart phone. Why? Because all of the phones at the time left something to be desired, whether it be the display or the camera or the processor or the battery life. There was just…

Motorola Droid Turbo 2 Coming on October 29. Here’s What You Need to Know

Motorola Droid Turbo 2 Coming on October 29. Here’s What You Need to Know

Last year, Motorola released the first Droid Turbo. It was a beast. It was one of the first (and only) phones to be released with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor (one of the last good Snapdragon processors). It had a QHD AMOLED display. It had a 20 MP camera. It was a Moto X on steroids. Any non-Verizon user was jealous. Today, not so much. Motorola announced the Droid Turbo 2 today and to be…

iPhone 6S vs LG G4 Comparison

iPhone 6S vs LG G4 Comparison

One thing that I’ve learned from my years of reviewing iPhones is that people always want to know how other phones measure up to the iPhone. Everyone shows up to hate or to love, but they always show up. There’s a fact that people need to address. People care about the iPhone. Whether you hate it or you love it, you care about it. I want people to address that fact because I want to…

HTC Announces the HTC One A9, and it’s Awesome

HTC Announces the HTC One A9, and it’s Awesome

Today, HTC had their Be Brilliant event, where they announced the HTC One A9. While appearing as a flagship, this is actually a mid-range device, which is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 617 chipset. I say it appears as a flagship because quite frankly, the HTC One M9, HTC’s actual flagship, doesn’t. The HTC One M9 was underwhelming. It gets too hot and the camera was mediocre at best.
