Jabra Solemate Mini Bluetooth speaker review

Jabra released the Solemate, which is a portable Bluetooth speaker, and later followed up with a smaller and larger version. These were dubbed the Solemate Mini and Solemate Max. We have been happily using the original Solemate for quite some time, so when the folks at Jabra asked us to take a look at the Solemate Mini, we were more than interested. What follows is a bit about the Solemate Mini, with some comparison to the original model.

Dell Venue 7 tablet review

Dell unveiled a pair of Venue branded tablets (running Android) back in October. These models included the Venue 7 and Venue 8, both of which arrived running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Dell had these two models available for purchase shortly after they were announced, and more recently, we have spent some time with the smaller of the two, the Dell Venue 7, so read on to see how this particular model stood up during our testing time.

Samsung Galaxy S4 mini review

The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is the device we expected it would be. A solid performer, it is the lineal step in the life of a Samsung product, and diversifies their overall lineup. It might be a shrunken version of the flagship Galaxy S4, but it also makes a few compromises. Some of those decisions are expected, while others are strange to us. In using the Galaxy S4, we found it a nice fit, both in form and function. While the experience is paramount, some of the omissions leave us wondering — and wanting.

Verizon HTC One max hands-on

Following a long series of rumors and leaks, HTC announced the One max back in mid-October. Verizon Wireless followed HTC with an announcement of their own and initially said the handset would be arriving in time for the holiday shopping season. True to their word, the HTC One max arrived with Verizon in late-November. Anyway, we have recently been carrying a Verizon branded model and as such, wanted to offer a bit on this carrier variant and how it compares to the model we reviewed back in October.

Moto G review

While it would probably make more sense to compare the Moto G to the Moto X, we cannot help but compare it to the Nexus 5. In part that may be due to our recent Nexus 5 usage (we reviewed the N5 and have been carrying it daily since), but we are also making the comparison given they are both available unlocked and with attractive price points. The thing is, the Nexus 5 is the top-tier and the Moto G is the mid-tier. That thought follows the patterns we see with the specs as well as the price. Anyway, talk of the Nexus 5 aside, how about we get into the Moto G, beginning with the hardware.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet review

Lenovo unveiled a pair of tablets a few weeks earlier. This was the Yoga Tablet lineup and it included an 8-inch and 10-inch variant. Or perhaps better remembered, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet may be better known for two things -- the unique design and the bit about how they were announced with celebrity endorsement. That celebrity was Ashton Kutcher and while the Yoga Tablet lineup has an interesting look, we must admit we were pleasantly surprised when we pulled these out of the box and began playing.

Nexus 5 review

As had been rumored in the lead up, Google dropped the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 Kit Kat on Halloween. Thanks to the frequent rumors and leaks, the actual launch came with little in terms of surprise. But nonetheless, it was nice to get confirmation on the specs and pricing. The launch went smooth, especially as compared to the launch day issues Google had with the Nexus 4.
