Smart Launcher Face-off – Battle of the Brains

Android has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to app launchers, but there is a certain breed of them that deserves special mention. These are the so called smart or contextual launchers and today we'll be giving you the rundown on a few of them.

Acer Android All-In-One TA272HUL review

Running Android on a 27-inch all-in-one style desktop isn't something we thought about all that much. Sure, we saw Acer announce the Android AIO TA272HUL back in January during CES, but the setup wasn't shipping and any thoughts we had simply faded away. Acer reached out in March offering to send us a review unit, and while eager to accept, we do have to admit we were a bit skeptical going into this review. At risk of offering a spoiler, we were surprised with how much use and attention the computer received.

Garmin Vivofit Fitness Band review

In a world where fitness bands are becoming commonplace, it may be hard to start looking toward any new arrivals in the space. One could assume they are largely the same in terms of features, and as a result, simply start ignoring those new arrivals. Having said that, we have recently been wearing the Garmin vivofit, and have found it sports a few unique features -- one of which deals with battery life. For more on the Garmin vivofit battery life, and much more, read on for our full review.

LG G Pro 2 review

LG was showing a few devices during during Mobile World Congress. One of those was the LG G Pro 2, which naturally, is the successor to the LG G Pro. This handset was originally unveiled back in mid-February, but perhaps a bit more important here, we left Spain with an LG G Pro 2 and have been carrying it since. With that in mind, read on to see how the handset stood up during our testing.

Boost MAX review

Boost Mobile announced the availability of the Boost MAX towards the end of January. The MAX was originally shown by ZTE during CES and was dubbed the Iconic Phablet. While Boost Mobile may have renamed the handset, they haven't looked away from the larger size. The MAX is clearly in the phablet category with a 5.7-inch display, and Boost Mobile was touting it as being able to offer the "best of a smartphone and tablet together." With that in mind, read on to see how well it stood up during our testing period.

SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive review

The SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive has been announced this morning. Essentially, this is a flash drive with a microUSB port on one end, and a regular sized USB port on the other. The drive works in connection with the SanDisk Memory Zone app, and is touted as being "the easiest way to free up space on your phone or tablet." With that in mind, the folks at SanDisk sent a unit over in advance, which means we have already had a bit of hands-on time.

LG G Flex review

The LG G Flex is officially stateside. Via AT&T, you can now pick one up, and enjoy the 6-inch curved OLED screen for yourself. If you’re curious about the curved device, you’re reading this review as a means to decide if it’s the right one for you. Certainly polarizing, the G Flex stands out in a crowd, but does it do so in the right way? We find out.

T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z1S review

T-Mobile previously released the Sony Xperia Z, and the follow-up device has recently arrived with the carrier. This other device is the Sony Xperia Z1S, which sports some similarities in the specs, but does step up a bit in the way of the external design. That having been said, T-Mobile allowed us some hands-on time with the Xperia Z1S during CES and that meant a full week of carrying this latest waterproof Sony device. Curious about how the phone stands up, read on for our full review.

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.
