Essential Phone Review Re-Do [November 2017]
 
06:10
I normally like to wait a year to give a smartphone the old "review re-do" treatment, but this is a special case. The Andy Rubin-led tech startup Essential changed everything when it slashed the price of its namesake flagship by $200 barely two months after launch. The price drop from $699 to $499 instantly transformed an overpriced phone with a terrible camera into a genuine bargain … with a terrible camera. Yes, the Essential Phone's optics continue to be a sore spot even after a 28% price cut – but as with most things Android, there's a hack for that. Let’s find out if the deep discount combined with a little sideloading can make the Essential Phone a winner, in MrMobile’s Essential Phone Review Re-Do, brought to you by Thrifter!

LG V20 Hands On: The Phone For A/V Geeks
 
04:29
LG hasn’t had the best year when it comes to smartphones, but the LG V20 has a few tricks under its unassuming outer shell. At IFA 2016 in Berlin, the company gave me a quick peek at the successor to last year's LG V10 ... and if you're the kind of kid who hung out in the A/V studio in high school, you're gonna love it. From high-decibel microphones to high-resolution cameras, the LG V20 comes packing; but does it bring enough heat to overcome the wet blanket that was the LG G5?

LG G6 Review
 
07:36
The LG G6 is more than just the leading contender to take on Samsung's Galaxy S8. The G6 represents a large step forward for LG, having discarded last year’s compromises and gimmicks for a return to the fundamentals; a renewed focus on quality; and a camera I’m dearly going to miss when I move on. At the same time, it's also a step back: to a world without removable batteries, a world without bleeding-edge processors. Is the LG G6 for you? Find out in MrMobile’s LG G6 Review!

Surface Book 2 Hands-On: Now In Jumbo & Junior Sizes
 
05:23
For the past two years, the Microsoft Surface Book has sat at the apex of my ideal-Windows-device pyramid. When I reviewed its Performance Base upgrade last year, the Surface Book's funky four-in-one form factor won me over, its vast capabilities making up for its ponderous size and prodigious price tag. Today, Microsoft reinvigorates its halo notebook with the Surface Book 2, a duo of devices offering the same look and feel of the Surface Book, but with revised specs and two available sizes. The Surface Book is a special line of machines, and the Surface Book 2 is just the shot in the arm the portfolio needed. Microsoft calls it “twice as powerful” as the MacBook Pro, and the company seems to be targeting Apple even more aggressively than it did last year, retaining the Surface Book’s USB-A ports and SD card reader while adding USB-C support. That kind of offering seems tailor-made for would-be Windows converts like myself … and it’ll be a miracle if I get to the other side of my Surface Book 2 review without buying one. Until then, hop on in to the Surface Book 2 hands-on, and let me know what you think of Microsoft's latest contender in the comments!

Google Pixel C Review Re-Do [2017]
 
06:10
The Google Pixel C has been reviewed, re-reviewed, and reviewed again. So why go back to the well once more? Because the Google Pixel C is still the best Android tablet there is – at least, for me. Fifteen months after I bought the Pixel C, I'm still in love with its industrial design and unique magnetic keyboard, and I still default to the Pixel C every time I want to leave the house without the bulk of my MacBook Pro. But for $599 plus $149 for the keyboard, is it really worth it? The answer ... is no. Actually, it's "HELL no." But if you can find a Pixel C on sale, as has been known to happen, I think you're gonna have a great time. Join me for MrMobile's Pixel C Review Re-Do for 2017!

LG V30 Hands-On: Cinema-Quality Smartphone
 
04:17
If you thought the LG V30 was going to look like its predecessors the V20 and V10, join the club! I was expecting another steel-sided monster from a key grip’s toolbox with gaff tape patching the scuffs. Instead, we get this: a spit-polished glass sandwich of a smartphone that’s much lighter in the hand than you expect. Factor in LG’s first AMOLED screen in ages; the latest version of the company’s super-wide-angle camera; and wireless charging and a Hi-Fi Quad DAC on every version … and you might start thinking that the LG V30 is the most competitive phone to come from the company in years. Only the full review will tell for sure, but I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that you might be right.

OnePlus 3T Review
 
06:00
The OnePlus 3T is physically identical to its predecessor aside from a new gunmetal paint job, so it has to rely on small bumps in processor, camera and software to stand out against the OnePlus 3 it's replacing. Do these improvements make the OnePlus 3T worth its $40 price increase? Does it still beat out other smartphones in its class? Are you quick enough to catch a sly "Mr. T" joke?

BlackBerry KEYone Review
 
08:17
The BlackBerry KEYone is more than just another anachronistic appeal to nostalgia. It's the best BlackBerry on shelves today, bearing the best keyboard you can find on an Android phone in 2017. Lest you think I'm damning the BlackBerry KEYone with faint praise, remember that MrMobile values smartphones that stand out from the crowd – sometimes even more than he values phones with great battery life and outstanding build quality. The BlackBerry KEYone has all three of those assets in abundance ... but is it enough to make up for its slight software stumbles? Find out in MrMobile's BlackBerry KEYone Review!

This handset replaced an earlier BlackBerry KEYone review unit that was deemed defective. It received two software updates during MrMobile's time with it: most of the review was performed on software build AAK831, and an update to AAL093 arrived on the evening before BlackBerry KEYone review publication. SPECIAL NOTE: Although CrackBerry does have a marketing relationship with BlackBerry Mobile, MrMobile is an independent entity within Mobile Nations. He was given the same amount of time with the KEYone as every other reviewer granted early access under the embargo agreement, and he received no compensation of any kind from BlackBerry Mobile or CrackBerry for this review (or any other piece of BlackBerry coverage).

LG V30 Review: The Best Video Phone (With One Big Exception)
 
08:07
LG didn’t do itself any favors by waiting until October to release its V30 smartphone in the US, after first announcing it back in August. But it’s telling that, in the intervening weeks, I haven’t been able to go a day without someone on Twitter asking for an ETA on my LG V30 review. This is a smartphone that’s got people stoked. Part of that is the natural demand for an underdog alternative to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8, or curiosity about how much of the V30’s DNA made it into the LG-made Google Pixel 2 XL. But comparing the V30 to either of those competitors misses the point. The V30 isn’t just LG’s higher-end model for the fall; it’s one of the only three smartphones in recent memory designed specifically for shooting near-professional-quality mobile video. (The other two were its immediate predecessors, the LG V10 and V20.) The V30 packs updates to the styling and specs of its forerunners, while tossing in more cinematography features like in-camera color grading and support for the Cine-Log format. It also brings its own version of the super-wide-angle dual-camera system that kept the LG G6 in my pocket for much of this year, and includes a 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC and 3.5mm headphone jack for the audiophiles in the audience. But with a price point starting at $800 and a selfie camera that falls far behind the quality of the primary shooter, will the LG V30 be able to live up to the hype created by its long road to release? Check out MrMobile’s LG V30 review to find out, and then hit up Android Central's LG V30 Review for the deep dive!

The Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro offer a fresh new design, lots of battery capacity, and a camera that builds on an impressive legacy.

The Sony MDR-1000X won't win any fashion awards; it's a bulky and very plain-looking headset, its cans studded with buttons. But what it lacks in style it makes up for in performance: I've used the Bose QC35, Sennheiser PXC-550 and countless other noise canceling headsets, and I can say with very little hesitation that the MDR-1000X has them both beat. These are the best noise canceling headphones of 2017 – or at least, the best wireless headphones that have been on *my* head in 2017 – and reviewing them has been a blast.

Huawei MateBook X Review: Splashproof, Slim & Fan-Free
 
05:50
If you’re in the US and you don't follow smartphones too closely, you may never have heard of Huawei. But on the global stage, the company is massive; it’s the world’s third-largest smartphone maker and it built a Windows convertible last year called the MateBook that earned it a lot of love. This year, Huawei has moved into laptops – and the result is a slim and light notebook that unlocks with a fingerprint, blows your ears off with super sound, and even stands up to some big-time spills. I’m MrMobile and this is the Huawei MateBook X review!

Evapolar Review: Your Personal Swamp Cooler
 
03:51
"Evapolar" is a much nicer name for a product than "swamp cooler," but that's essentially what we've got in the latest package to arrive at the MrMobile studio. "Swamp cooler" is the colloquial name for "evaporative cooler," a device that cools air by forcing it to turn water into vapor – and that's exactly how Evapolar works. What's cool about Evapolar is that it's the size of a 4-pack and efficient enough to run on a cellphone power pack; what's not cool about it is that it doesn't work in humid environments. Learn about the science behind that limitation – and how much you'll have to cough up to start frosting up your own little microclimate – in the MrMobile Evapolar Review!

Apple Watch 2 Review: Remember To Breathe

The Apple Watch Series 2 caps off a year of comfortable predictability for Apple. The new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were just what most of us expected from the company, and the "Apple Watch 2" doesn’t pack many surprises either. But that's less a dig at Apple than a recognition of the fact that sometimes you only need to tweak a few aspects of a winning formula to stay on top. That's a long way of saying that the Apple Watch Series 2 is the best smartwatch you can buy if you're an iPhone user – and one of the best smartwatches you can buy, period.

Galaxy S8 vs LG G6: MKBHD vs MrMobile!

[ Check out MKBHD's version of this comparison here: https://t.co/j5wGBkYsV8 ] The LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8 are two of the best smartphones of 2017 … but there’s a reason the average person may have only heard about one of them. Samsung is throwing its usual marketing muscle behind the Galaxy, for one thing, and for another … well, the S8 might just be the better phone. From features to cosmetics, the Galaxy S8 is a force to be reckoned with. But that doesn't mean you should ignore the LG G6; a wide-angle camera, MIL-STD 810G durability and a fingerprint scanner put where humans can actually use it? That's a compelling combination, one whose mantle I take up in this rare MrMobile comparison – featuring an even rarer special guest appearance! Tune in as MrMobile and his LG G6 do battle with MKBHD and his Samsung Galaxy S8! As usual, the only winner is the one YOU decide on ... but getting there is the whole point, right?

Moto Z2 Play Review: Bad Sequel, Better Smartphone
 
07:19
Last year’s Moto Z Play was a smartphone with legendary battery life that didn’t break the bank. So, for the sequel, Motorola decided to shrink the battery – and bump up the price. Because … capitalism? I was as irritated as anyone to see Motorola make that choice, since I really admired the original Z Play’s unique package of affordability and endurance. But what surprised me is that, even despite its shrunken battery (and my accompanying consternation) the Motorola Z2 Play is still a really good phone. Even more surprising: it’s also a pretty good deal -- as long as you get it from Verizon. To see how that's possible, check out MrMobile’s Moto Z2 Play Review!

Samsung DeX Review: A Taste Of The Future
 
06:31
Samsung DeX promises a lot. With nothing more than the DeX dock and a monitor, keyboard and mouse, you're supposed to be able to "leave your computer behind" and "make anyplace a workplace" ... by converting your smartphone into a desktop computer. And you know what? It works pretty well. If Microsoft's competing Continuum product weren't already effectively dead, DeX would stand a pretty good chance of killing it. Plus, it's not that hard to imagine a laptop-less future where everyone just plugs their phone in to a dumb terminal when they need a computer. But that future is still far off ... and DeX doesn't deliver quite enough to get us there all on its own. Learn the full story in MrMobile's Samsung DeX review!

Samsung Gear S3 Hands-On
 
03:55
Samsung’s smartphones have matured into some of the best on the market in 2016, and its smartwatches seem poised to do the same. With the Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier, Samsung evolves some of the solid ideas behind last year's S2, while further honing its software and industrial design to produce a device that's a wristwatch first and a smartwatch second – an often-touted but seldom realized ambition in the wearable world. Whether Samsung ultimately meets that goal will have to wait for MrMobile's full Gear S3 review; for now, join me for a quick Samsung Gear S3 hands on!

Google Pixel Review: An Android For Normals

"The best Android smartphone" is a tough thing to pin down.

6.3; 3300; 195; 12. Samsung's new Galaxy Note 8 is awash in numbers … but there’s only one that really matters: 105.

Huawei Mate 9 Review

HTC 10 Review [2017]: The Forgotten Classic
 
07:30
In my first HTC 10 Review, I called it “the best Android smartphone you’re not buying.” A year after its release, both of those claims hold up: the HTC 10 of 2017 is still a really solid phone ... but it's still not selling well enough to stave off the flow of underwhelming financial reports from HTC. Maybe that's because even a "really solid phone" isn't good enough to capture the public's imagination in the current climate of curved-screen contraptions, or maybe it's because the HTC 10 is still priced pretty high compared to similarly-specced competitors like the OnePlus 3T. Whatever the reason, an HTC 10 review for 2017 seemed appropriate before the company launched its next big flagship ... so an HTC 10 review for 2017 is just what you're gonna get.

BlackBerry KEYone Special Edition: Hands-On With The "Vader Berry"

Normally, a new color option and a minor spec bump aren't newsworthy enough for a hands-on video. But the BlackBerry KEYone Special Edition (or, if you want to be all official about things, the "Limited Edition KEYone Mercury Black Device by BlackBerry made by Optiemus Infracom") is noteworthy for more than a new paint job. For one thing, the special-edition KEYone improves on the base model in RAM and internal storage, two areas it was especially lacking. And for another, it’s said to be assembled by an entirely different company. Of course, there's more to the story, so click on through for MrMobile's BlackBerry KEYone Special Edition hands-on!

We’ll cover the Moto Z line in more detail in my forthcoming Moto Z2 Play review ... but for now I wanna talk about the 2017 Moto Mods, the snap-on accessories that make your phone fun again – for a price.

The Gear 360 Camera Is SO MUCH FUN
 
06:22
The Gear 360 (2017) is my new favorite camera. Shooting photos and video in a full 360-degree sphere, being able to give my audience total control of that fishbowl, and being able to create infinity spheres called "tiny planets" ... it's the most fun I've had with a camera in years. True, the Gear 360 (2017) is a bit of a downgrade from last year's Gear 360 on the spec sheet, and it would never be my first choice for more conventional photos, but its crazy 360 camera capabilities are so wild that I happily forgive those shortcomings. Join me for the MrMobile Gear 360 2017 (p)review, and share your own 360 creations on the MrMobile Facebook page at the link below!

Hands On: Google's Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL & Pixelbook
 
07:16
When Google dropped its first Pixel smartphone last year, at first I was not impressed. I dogged it for its lack of waterproofing, its derivative design, and for having a custom launcher when I expected pure stock Android. But then an important thing happened: I used the Pixel. And in short order, its instantaneous responsiveness ruined me for every other Android phone out there. Well today in San Francisco, Google announced a couple successors to those original Pixels. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL correct some of their predecessors’ shortcomings … and they introduce a couple more. I’m Michael Fisher and I went hands-on with the Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, and the new Pixelbook. Join me for a MrMobile first look!

Choosing The Best Battery Pack For Your Smartphone
 
05:20
Shopping for a portable battery pack in 2016 is a daunting challenge – but I've collected between twenty and thirty power banks in my time reviewing technology, and I've found that the secret to making the search a little less complicated is to focus on three key areas: safety, capacity, and speed. This video includes products that excel in each field, and some even marry the benefits of all three with that all-important bonus: novelty. Join me for the MrMobile Portable Power Pack roundup! [SUBSCRIBE] https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSOpcUkE-is7u7c4AkLgqTw?sub_confirmation=1 [ADDENDUM] I neglected to state that the ResQ battery is made from eco-friendly materials.

Bluetooth Star Trek Communicator Review: A Trekkie's Dream Come True

Star Trek has brought us some of the coolest gadgets seen on TV – the most iconic of which is the Communicator. Various toy replicas have cropped up over the years to let every kid play Captain Kirk, but it took Star Trek’s 50th anniversary (and a company obsessed with detail) to bring a working Communicator to the mainstream.

Remember The Taco Phone?
 
04:57
In 2003, Nokia declared war on Nintendo with the N-Gage, a Game Boy Advance lookalike with a Series 60 mobile phone inside. The conflict – to put it mildly – did not go in Nokia's favor. With a cumbersome design that required the owner to remove the battery in order to change games, the N-Gage wasn't exactly user-friendly, and with only a handful of available titles to the Game Boy Advance's 1,200, the N-Gage ecosystem hardly justified the device's $299 asking price. Worse still: the phone's earpiece was mounted on its spine, making for a bizarre look and feel when it came to voice calls and leading to the unfortunate nickname "Taco Phone." Needless to say, Nokia's N-Gage experiment did not go well. The company launched a sequel (the N-Gage QD) in 2004 and eventually repositioned N-Gage as a gaming platform that spanned its Symbian smartphone line, but it never gained the traction Nokia sought and the brand was shuttered in 2010. Today, the original N-Gage is a monument to the days when new form factors flooded a nascent mobile market, and a still-dominant Nokia led the charge to pack ever more functionality into the humble cell phone. Join MrMobile for the Nokia N-Gage Retro Review – and if you owned one of these (or even if you just wanted one) drop a comment below with your story! [SUBSCRIBE] https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSOpcUkE-is7u7c4AkLgqTw?sub_confirmation=1 [ABOUT THIS VIDEO] MrMobile's Nokia N-Gage Retro Review was produced after several days with a retail Nokia N-Gage device purchased on Amazon.

ZTE Axon M Hands-On: The Clamshell Is Back
 
04:39
The ZTE Axon M is a specimen not seen in the world of the smartphone in some time: it's a clamshell. No, not a flip-top communicator of the Starfleet variety, but a side-flipping design previously reserved for fancy wallets. Some, like MrMobile's esteemed thumbnail designer, might go so far as to call the ZTE Axon M a "folding phone." But MrMobile himself would never be so bold. For real though: in a sea of single-sided slabs, the Axon M is a legitimately interesting design. Featuring two 5.2" displays bonded by a solid-feeling hinge and a thick aluminum midplate, the Axon M has the kind of heft that makes you take a smartphone seriously ... and the double-wide screen real estate that'll get you noticed even in Best Buy's big-TV section. Tune in for MrMobile's first look, and stay tuned to the channel for the Axon M Review coming soon! [SUBSCRIBE] https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSOpcUkE-is7u7c4AkLgqTw?sub_confirmation=1 [ABOUT THE ZTE AXON M HANDS-ON] MrMobile's ZTE Axon M hands-on was produced following an hour with a ZTE Axon M review device on loan from ZTE. The device was a preproduction smartphone running prerelease software. Additionally, the briefing venue had poor lighting which resulted in the inconsistent white balance in this video; the greenish blue hue you see on the display is a symptom of this problem and does not appear in person.

The Best Wireless Chargers For Your New Phone
 
07:50
It’s been eight years since wireless charging first came to smartphones with the Palm Pre, but it took Apple building it into the iPhone 8 and iPhone X to make it matter to the mainstream. That's no snarky jab at Apple or its customers; in fact the iPhone's newfound embrace of wireless charging is reason to celebrate for all those who've ever known the joy of cutting the (charging) cord! That's because wireless charging is about to return to the scene in a big way – and this time, there's no pesky standards war to get in the way of progress. I'm MrMobile and here’s what you need to know if you’re treating your smartphones to a wireless charger in 2017.

Gear S3 On iPhone: Just Get An Apple Watch
 
03:56
Smartwatches aren’t in a great place right now. Android Wear is stalled pending its big 2.0 update; Apple still won’t break out sales figures for its own Watch; and Fitbit is buying every boutique smartwatch company it can get its hands on. So when Samsung announced that its Gear S3 was finally ready to be used with the iPhone, I was stoked that maybe an Apple Watch competitor had finally arrived for iOS. I probably should have known better.

Chevy Volt 2017 Review: An Electric Car With A Gas Assistant
 
09:40
The Chevy Volt is unlike any car I've ever driven. For the first 50 miles it's an all-electric sedan with zero tailpipe emissions that you can recharge at home. Once the battery runs dry, though, the Volt keeps going on a four-cylinder gas generator that takes you the rest of the car's 420-mile range. So the Volt 2017 (which is nearly identical to the Volt 2016) exists somewhere between yesterday's world of internal combustion engines and tomorrow's world of full electrics – and whether you call that an E-REV or a PHEV, it's a pretty exciting place to be. Hop behind the wheel with Michael Fisher for MrMobile's Chevy Volt 2017 Review! [ABOUT THIS REVIEW] The Chevy Volt 2017 Review was produced after seven days with a Chevy Volt 2017 review vehicle on loan from Chevrolet.
