Best of 2016 and prepping for CES 2017 | #PNWeekly 233

We’re finally saying goodbye to 2016. A year full of highs and lows, which devices struck our fancy? Which gadgets fell flat? And what had us thinking deep? We’ll discuss our remembrances and grievances throughout the show and taking a closer look at our wrap up videos, and looking forward to next year as CES is moving the calendar up on tech announcements for 2017.

Those stories, plus we answer YOUR viewer questions, so make sure you’re charged and ready for the Pocketnow Weekly Podcast!

Goodbye 2016 – Our best of the best, phones, cameras, and audio!


We ranked the best smartphone audio. We tackled the best smartphone cameras. We voted on the best smartphones at every price. 2016 is well finished. With an exciting wrap up, and some late arrivals, we now face a fast ramp up to 2017 with an early CES.


See you at CES 2017!
