Nokia's Android Walkthrough

Nokia’s Android Complete Walkthrough (Video)

Nokia X Unboxing

Nokia X Unboxing (Video)

Apparently, and further to my point about Nokia not creating the Nokia X for US buyers, I had a bit of trouble importing this device. After some shipping issues though, it’s finally here. If you are unfamiliar, the Nokia X is Nokia’s first attempt at making an Android device. It

Samsung Galaxy S5 Unboxing (Video)

My Samsung Galaxy S5 finally has arrived (after a bit of trouble with the United States Postal Service) and, as I did with the HTC One M8, I figured the first thing to do is to do an unboxing video for anyone interested to see what it comes with. The

HTC One M8 Review

HTC One M8 Review (Video)

In an effort to stand out last year, HTC built one of the few all metal bodies for their flagship Android device; the HTC One. Even though it got a decent amount of praise across the internet, its sales numbers didn’t really impress anyone. 6.4 million units sold in 2013

HTC One M8 Camera Walkthrough (Video)

In my overly thorough walkthrough of Sense 6.0, the latest version of HTC’s UI skin for Android that launched on the new HTC One M8, I left out one thing; the camera. There was a good reason though. The new HTC One M8’s camera setup is unlike anything we’ve seen

Blackberry Z10 Review: An Upgrade or Downgrade?

I try and be as unbiased as I can whenever a new device comes out. Be it iOS, Android, or even Windows Phone. So when RIM announced the new Blackberry Z10, I was optimistic, “Maybe this will get Blackberry back on the map.” If we’re honest though, that’s like saying, “Maybe

Facebook Home Review

Before we get to judging Facebook’s new Home app that essentially takes over your Android device’s homescreen with Facebook goodies (and thanks to some developers, for better or for worse, it’s available on most Android devices instead of the select few available at the app’s launch), it’s probably best we

Nike Fuelband Review and Overanalysis (Video)

While we wait for an Android app for the Nike fuel band to come out soon, I decided I’d go grab one and see what all the fuss was about. So here’s a quick video of my thoughts on the fuel band and how it works. Enjoy.

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Walkthrough

I’ve had the pleasure to play with Android’s newest iteration Jelly Bean (4.1) for a few days now (thanks to XDA developers, of course) and figured I’d do our normal walkthrough when a new version of Android is released to showcase some of the new features of the OS compared
