IFROGZ Impulse Wireless Headphones review

There are a lot of great headphones on the market, but many of them are wired. Wireless audio is, without a doubt, the way the future is going as far as listening to audio goes. But, many of the wireless options that offer a level of quality right now are quite expensive; however, IFROGZ has a game changer — the Impulse Wireless headphones.

Huawei Mate 9 review: Huawei’s best phone yet

When you think of the Huawei brand, you may be reminded of a Chinese company that produces great hardware that is burdened with a heavy-handed interface known as EMUI, right? Well, it may be time to rethink that opinion. With the release of the 5.9-inch Mate 9, Huawei also launched EMUI 5.0, a much lighter, cleaner, and easier-to-use version of its user interface, which combined with the new Kirin 960 processor, offers a slick, mature experience. You get the feeling that Huawei is finally getting it, that slightly less is actually a whole lot more, and that they don’t need to throw in the kitchen sink to offer a full-featured smartphone.

After the Galaxy Note 7 disaster, the market for big-screened handsets was left wide-open for other manufacturers to grab some market share. Samsung customers who would have normally upgraded to the latest in the Galaxy Note series were left with options such as the Google Pixel and the LG V20, although LG shot itself in the foot when it decided to only launch the V20 in select markets.

Could the Huawei Mate 9 be the big-screened savior many of us were looking for? Join us after the break to find out.

Samsung Gear S3 Classic review: A great smartwatch if you use a Samsung phone

Despite many manufacturers developing smartwatches, the popularity and interest among users has been slow to rise. Samsung is one of the major players in this field and with their Samsung Gear S3 Classic they are showing no signs of slowing down. Starting now at $299, can this Tizen OS-based smartwatch compete with the other smartwatches on the market and entice potential customers into its ecosystem?

‘Hot Wheels: Race Off’ review

hot-wheels-race-off-home

Racing games are a dime a dozen, but Mattel and Hutch Games are making something a little more unique — Hot Wheels: Race Off. It’s still racing at its core, but it veers off from the traditional Need for Speed style and instead pits you against a single opponent in a race against the clock. At first, Hot Wheels: Race Off may not seem like much, but with its addictive playstyle and hours of content, it’ll keep you coming back for more.

Apple iPhone 7 review

Love it or hate it, Apple’s iPhone 7 is arguably the most popular phone on the planet. Year in and year out it consistently sells truck loads of units in September and always finishes strong around Christmas, and even lackluster quarters for Apple still bring in loads of cash thanks to the success of the iPhone.

LeEco has had the spotlight on them a lot lately, particularly because of its aggressive expansion.

We’ve already taken a look at its higher-end smartphone, the LeEco Le Pro 3, but now we’re breaking down its budget handset — the LeEco Le S3.

LeEco Le Pro 3 review: A powerful, inexpensive (and confusing) phone

leeco_le_pro_3_review_angled_back_ta

LeEco is a Chinese company that is not terribly well known here in the United States. With electric vehicles, a film studio, virtual reality, and phones, LeEco has its hands dipped in a number of areas and is showing no sign of slowing down. In the world of mobile devices, the LeEco Le Pro 3 is the latest Android powerhouse that aims to take the U.S. by storm with its high end specs and suite of live streaming entertainment services — all for a price of only $399.

Does all of this translate to a phone you should run out and buy? Let’s find out.

Honor 8 review: A mid-range beauty with substance

huawei_honor_8-6

The year might be known for when Google replaced the Nexus program or how Samsung experienced disaster with the Galaxy Note 7, but it should also be remembered as the year Huawei stepped out of the shadows. From the launch of the Honor 5X at the beginning of 2016 to the star-studded launch of the Huawei P9 in April, Huawei has taken giant strides in new markets. No longer is it simply known as one of those interesting but mysterious companies in China.

Huawei’s Honor brand, too, took another step towards household recognition in August with the launch of the Honor 8, a beautiful phone that shares much of its DNA with the Huawei P9. The Honor 8 differs from the P9 in various aspects, though, and is all the better for it.

Hit the break for our review of the Honor 8.

Fitbit Blaze review

fitbit_blaze_package_front_ta

By now, Fitbit is coming close to being synonymous with “activity tracker” and the brand name is occasionally tossed around as a generic term to describe any similar device. That does mean the company has a lot to live up to in terms of delivering solid devices that meet the expectations of buyers. One of those devices that was released this past year was the Fitbit Blaze which is ostensibly the company’s top of the line device and probably comes closest to merging the Fitbit activity tracking expertise with pseudo-smartwatch capabilities.

After spending some time with the Fitbit Blaze, we put together this review to help you decide whether this might be the trail you want to blaze for an activity tracker purchase.

Mobvoi Ticwatch 2 review

ticwatch2_outdoors_off_2_ta

You’ve heard all of the standard names when it comes to smartwatches — Huawei, Samsung, LG, Moto, TAG Heuer and so many more. But, one you probably haven’t heard of is Mobvoi, one of the first Chinese companies Google has backed since leaving the country in 2010. With that in mind, we’re a little intrigued about what the company has to offer, especially after its successful Kickstart campaign over and abundantly funded the development of its new smartwatch, the Ticwatch 2.

It’s not running Android Wear, but that’s largely because many of Google’s services aren’t available in China. Instead, it’s running a spinoff of Android — Ticwear 4.0. Sure, it makes you question where the watch is worth picking up or not, but you actually might be surprised.

Join us after the break for details.
