Intek I-Touch Smartphone Car Mount Review – iPhone and Android phone mount

Buy this reviewed item here at a discount! Buy it on Amazon – (affiliate link) This is a decent and inexpensive mount for smart phones. It’s relatively simple and consists of a suction cup mount along with an adjustable phone holder. Two arms grip the phone when everything is pressed into place. It will hold a larger smartphone well, but I found that an iPhone 5s will slip out fairly easily if it doesn’t have a case. But they do…

Astak Neos HD 15.6-Inch Touchscreen Android Smart Display Review

Buy it on Amazon – (affiliate link) This is a rather interesting product that doesn’t make a lot of sense as a tablet device, but is far more functional as a small smart television. The Neos is heavy and really not meant to be portable. The large screen is great for those who have difficulty with small tablet and smart phone screens as it is running at a fairly low resolution (which means everything on the screen is quite large…

HTC One M8 vs. Sony Xperia Z2 – Dogfight

It’s Dogfight time! Cam pits two of the best Android phones against each other? Will the HTC One’s stunning BoomSound speakers and hardware design beat the Xperia Z2’s brilliant camera and battery life? What’s great about these two is that both manufacturers have opted for premium materials: Metal and Glass. But both use them in completely different ways. HTC went with the single, unibody aluminum approach, while the Z2 is front and back glass panels with a metal frame. Simply…

Nexus 5 review

By all accounts, the Nexus 5 is the farthest leap forward of any Nexus to date. Features like the much-needed LTE connectivity, a snappy quad-core CPU, and the 4.95-inch, 1080p display put the the Nexus 5 on roughly the same playing field as today’s top-tier flagships, but is that where the similarities end? Join Joshua Topolsky for a hands-on review of the Nexus 5 to find out, and be sure to read the full review at the link below: More…

Mad Catz Mojo Android Game Console Review – It Lacks Mojo

Buy it on Amazon – (affiliate link) Ugh.. I was so excited for the Mad Catz Mojo and really thought it would be the spiritual successor to the Ouya. And it might be some day, but right now it’s half a product: great hardware with what is essentially a basic Android installation. The device claims to be open and app store agnostic. That’s true, but it also requires a lot of up front configuration that includes having to “root” the…

Nyko Playpad Pro For Android / Amazon Fire TV / iOS (iCade) Review

Buy it on Amazon – (affiliate link) If you’re looking for a game controller for the Fire TV, this is a slightly more useful controller over the Amazon branded version. The reason being is that this device is a little more cross-compatible in that it supports Android devices as well as iOS (iPhone / iPad) games that support the iCade protocol. Note that support for iCade will likely dwindle away now that Apple has their own controller protocol, but it…

Cheap 10″ Android tablet from Letine & DHGate.com Review

DHGate.com sent me this cheap ($112) Android tablet that seems to work pretty well considering its low price point. It’s not perfect (there was some dust under the screen) but expectations should be kept low when buying generic hardware at this price point. DHGate has a bunch of inexpensive tablets from a number of Chinese manufacturers. They are a lot like Ebay or Amazon where they handle the transaction but the product is sold and delivered directly by a manufacturer.…

G910 Bluetooth Gamepad Review for Android and iOS Review

Buy this reviewed product from my store at a substantial discount! – Buy it on Amazon – (affiliate link) As a piece of hardware this controller feels very nice – in fact it feels almost as good as the Xbox 360 controller it tries to replicate. The attached mounting bracket holds a variety of phone sizes and orients them well to the user. The problem it has is compatibility – or the lack thereof. On iOS (iPhone and iPad) the…

Buy it on Amazon – (affiliate link) Watch my other WD TV videos – I missed the one unique feature of the new WD TV when I did my initial review – Miracast support! So here’s a quick demo of how it works. Miracast is a display protocol that allows some Android and Windows devices to mirror their displays wirelessly to an HD television. It works similar to Apple’s Airplay mirroring. Miracast on the WD TV works nicely but there…
