Yesterday I posted a gadget diary entry where I professed my immediate love (lust?) for the Samsung Galaxy Note8. Today I turned off my iPhone 7 Plus, set up the Note8, and started using it as my primary device. Have my feelings changed already? Let’s find out with my multi-part diary style review.  Check out… Read More

I love tablets.  Specifically, I love Android tablets.  I’ve had most of the major devices since day one including the Motorola Xoom and the earliest Samsung tablet, the Galaxy Tab 8.9.  The last one, well that was a brick – it was heavy, slow and would hurt you if you dropped it on an extremity… Read More

I’m guessing that almost every review of the Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ starts out with some mention of last year’s recall of the Note 7 due to battery issues that led to the spontaneous combustion of some phones. You would think that all that drama and bad press would have hurt Samsung’s reputation. But… Read More

Thanks to Verizon Wireless, this is my first smartphone review of 2017 and this review of the LG G6 Android smartphone has a little surprise for our long time loyal readers of the Gadgeteer. It’s a special dual format review with Judie Stanford who was my partner in crime here on The Gadgeteer for several… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More
