samsung-galaxy-note4-1

Last year at this time, I took a look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and ended up feeling that the device was too large for me. Funny thing is that not long after that article was posted, I started using a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 as my primary device. After a short adjustment period I got used to [...]

sony-xperia-z3-3

It's been over three years since I've reviewed or even used a Sony smartphone. The last time was back in 2011 when Verizon Wireless sent me the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Android smartphone. In the three years that have passed, Sony has dropped Ericsson from their name, but the company is still making high end [...]

Apple iPad Air 2 review

ipad-air-2-4

I always get excited when Apple announces new products, but I'll admit the latest iPad announcements left me a bit disappointed.  As you know if you've read any of my reviews, I love my iPad mini with Retina display.  I planned to update to the newest mini - until I watched Apple's keynote.  I was [...]

It's the time of year that I always look forward to... No, it's not the gorgeous autumn foliage that I like, it's not Thanksgiving dinner or Black Friday deals either. It's the time when many new smartphones roll out. A few weeks ago it was the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus from Apple and now [...]

iphone-6-plus-review-1

Although I stayed up until 3:00am ET to pre-order my iPhone 6 Plus from Verizon and got my order in within 8 minutes, I still was horrified to see that I could expect my new phone on October 14 instead of September 19!  I got lucky and received my 6 Plus earlier than expected, and [...]

I'm crazy lucky (although some would use the word spoiled) because I have the opportunity to review any phone that runs on Verizon's network. I just tell my Verizon contact what I'd like to do a review and they send me a loaner phone for a couple weeks. Yeah, I'm definitely spoiled. So much so that I haven't really [...]

samsung-galaxy-s5-1

I'm bored with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which is the main phone that I use when I'm not in the process of testing other phones. We're right at the beginning of the new phone rollout season and so far Verizon Wireless has sent me the new HTC One M8 and now the Samsung Galaxy S5 Android [...]

htc-one-m8-1

The new HTC One M8 smartphone is one of the sleekest Android smartphones currently on the market. Once again HTC has skipped the slick plastic case that people often tag with the word "cheap" and decided to go with a premium designed metal case that looks good and feels great in your hand. But is this [...]

nokia-icon-1

I enjoyed reviewing the Nokia Lumia 2520 Windows 8.1 RT tablet a few weeks ago and since it's been over a year, I thought it was time that I reviewed another Windows Phone device as well. Verizon offered to send me the Nokia Lumia Icon (aka Lumia 929), which is available exclusively from them. I [...]
