I’ve always been a big fan of Samsung’s smartwatches, they look great and Tizen works well as a smartwatch OS. Recently, Samsung released the Gear Sport which is almost like a Gear S3 Lite, meaning it’s smaller and is missing features that the Gear S3 has but overall the Gear Sport is a great smartwatch.
Nowadays, Android comes in a number of ways. From smartphones & watches to even your TV with devices such as the Nvidia Shield TV. I’ve been using 2017 version of the Nvidia Shield TV for a while and it’s easily one of the best media streaming boxes out there.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note has always been about experimentation and taking risks. The first Galaxy Note introduced the idea of a “phablet” while also adding the stylus as a viable input device for a phone. But recent models of the Galaxy Note line have been more about echoing that of the flagship Galaxy S line that experimenting with new form factors.
Smartwatches are one of those things where not everyone needs but secretly they do want one. Sure, it’s nice to have a smartwatch but it just eliminates just one less step of pulling out your phone. The only real smartwatch that is selling in the millions is the Apple Watch, meanwhile, Android Wear watches have sold a fraction of Apple despite having more features and some iOS capabilities.
This year, what would be the ‘S’ cycle in Apple’s naming scheme, they decided to not call this year’s iPhones the 7S and 7S Plus but instead the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus (even though they’re not the eighth iPhone to be released).
It seems like everything nowadays is connected to the internet in one way or another. From lightbulbs to thermostats. Even some new cars have built-in Wi-Fi or even, that’s where the Rogers Smart Drive device comes in. It allows you to get info about your vehicle while also being able to be used as a Wi-Fi hotspot.
When it comes to gaming headsets, there are only a few brands that come to mind, including Turtle Beach as well as Astro and Razer. Back at E3 2017, Turtle Beach had announced their plans to release two new headsets for Xbox One that would have Xbox Wireless built-in (which is the same way the Xbox One controllers connect to the console itself and those headsets would be the Stealth 600 and 700.
When I reviewed the Gear Fit2 last year, I called it “Samsung’s best wearable yet” but when Samsung introduced the Gear Fit2 Pro, I was interested to see how Samsung could improve it even more.
After using the Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro for a few weeks, I would still say that it is one of the best fitness trackers I’ve used but only with slight improvements.
Apple says that iOS 11 is the “biggest software release ever for iPad” and for the most part, they’re right. While iOS 11 doesn’t bring a lot of improvements to iPhones, there are a lot of new features that are exclusive to iPad.
Huawei is capable of making some great phones and the P10 is no different. The P10 is the first true Huawei phone I’ve used with all their customizations and what not, the only other Huawei phone I’ve tested was the Huawei/Google Nexus 6P but that was technically a Nexus phone and was stock Android.
Overall, I really like what Huawei has to offer, but their software is what really irks me the most.
