Last week, on the Pocketnow Weekly, we talked about the LG V30 and a slide out second screen it might have. Juan Carlos Bagnell Jules Wang had a conversation about flagship phones and established brands and whether or not it was a good idea to muck with those devices. For example, the LG V series is a solid brand, entering its third year of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and suddenly there’s talk of doing something crazy with the flagship. But is it necessarily crazy?Don’t spoil a good thing
On the one hand, you’re messing with success. The LG V and G series of phones are, quite [...]
It’s funny when you think about it, but sometimes the stupidest thing makes you see something in a whole new light. Watching WWDC’s keynote yesterday it dawned on me. Tim Cook was just showing off the latest watch faces that were added to the Apple Watch OS collection. Like, who gives a crap about stupid watch faces, right? And Toy Story? 2010 called – it wants its cartoons back, am I right? But watching Woody and Buzz and Jessie flopping all around the screen made me realize something.Be better

Android Wear has been out for a while now. I’m a bit late to the party – totally get that. But I just got an LG Watch Style and I’ve been sporting it for a couple of weeks now. I like the watch, itself. It has a nice build and it’s, well, stylish, but Android Wear 2.0 keeps driving me up a bit of a wall, and I just wanted to clear the air.

Wowee wow that Essential Phone, huh? Andy Rubin, the father of Android has returned to the lime light with a big splash. A high quality, feature packed, new smartphone made with premium materials and engineering. And there’s a lot more to the story. This is a big deal, and it’s a lot to take in, but I had some thoughts I wanted to share.
My thoughts on the Essential Phone can be summed up in one sentence:
“OnePlus is making the Xiaomi Moto Z Mix, the Next Big Thing.”Let’s break that down
Now, there’s a lot in there, so let’s break it down a little bit. The [...]
Microsoft put on an interesting show last week at its #MicrosoftEDU conference last week. Along with the announcement of Windows 10 S came a brand spankin’ new Surface laptop. This is really great news for those who want to see a Surface phone, because frankly, Microsoft is running out of form factors. In the process of that announcement, Microsoft may have sent out some mixed messages, so I wanted to take a moment to set the record straight. Or at least how I saw it.Chromebooks beware
Listening to the latest Pocketnow Weekly podcast, there was some confusion as to how a $1,000 [...]
