There is no such thing as a perfect smartphone. I know because I've been trying to find one for longer than I care to remember. There's also no such thing as being 100% happy with the phone you have. At least this is true for me. There's always some feature that I wish my current phone [...]

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that things haven't been going so well for Samsung the past week or two. With a recall in effect due to faulty batteries, I'm afraid it's going to give the Samsung Galaxy Note7 a bad wrap. Dave Rees and I have teamed up again to share [...]

It's been over a year since I posted my review of the Google Nexus 6 (made by Motorola) and two years since I posted the Motorola DROID TURBO review. They sure aren't kidding when they say that time flies when you're having fun. Now it's 2016 and we have two new flagship phones from Motorola that [...]

It's been two years since I reviewed a smartphone from HTC. That's forever in smartphone years. It's been so long that they were completely off my radar until they released their latest phone - the HTC 10. Verizon Wireless sent me a loaner unit to try out for a few weeks. Is the HTC 10 impressive [...]

I've been using the LG G5 for almost a month now and posted my first impressions two weeks ago. As far as looks and feel, I still don't think that the G5 lives up to the same standard as LG's previous flagship smartphones like the LG G4 and the LG V10. For a high-end phone [...]

Verizon sent me short term loaner unit of the LG G5 a couple weeks ago and I've been holding off reviewing it until I received the camera grip module. Since the grip module isn't due to get here for another week or so, I thought I'd go ahead and split the review into two parts [...]

The latest Samsung Galaxy smartphones are here! Dave Rees and I have each been lucky enough to score eval units of the S7 Edge and the Gear VR headset (we'll post a separate review of the VR headset soon) from Verizon Wireless. After a couple weeks with these devices it's time to let you know [...]

When I reviewed the LG G2 three years ago, I wasn't convinced that LG's decision to locate buttons on the back of the phone was a good idea. Who ever heard of putting volume buttons on the back of a phone instead of on the side?  At that time, no one had done it before, but then one year [...]

Dave Rees and I have been waiting for what feels like years in gadget time for the Nexus 6P. We each ordered one on the day they were announced and waited over a month to receive them. During that time, Dave had second thoughts about the 128GB version and cancelled in favor of a 64GB [...]
