Samsung has put in a lot of work over the last few years trying to create a better smartphone. The Galaxy S6 — which brought a striking new premium design made entirely of glass and metal — was the first big step forward with this. And in the time since, the Korean company has iterated upon what that device offered. The original had both ‘Edge’ and ‘non-Edge’ versions, but that dichotomy is no longer — the ‘Edge’ is here to stay, albeit in a more nuanced way than in previous models.

Things just got better and better over time. The Galaxy Note 5 was great, and the Galaxy S7 duo were some of the best smartphones we had ever seen, offering up a plethora of features that, when combined, made up what was easily the best pair of devices available for the better part of 2017. Then, Samsung announced the Note 7, and it all blew up in their faces. When phones started exploding, customers started getting worried about their devices.

Now, Samsung faces a road to redemption, and that starts with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

Budget phones are a dime a dozen — almost literally. There are so many on the market that it’s hard for any one in particular to stand out. However, when you’re offering specs that generally cost more for a price that’s much less than the competition, you’re going to turn heads.

Recently, Alcatel quietly launched the A30. This barebones device has minimal, but reasonable specs and really packs nothing particularly special, but it also costs just $60 unlocked. Is it any good? I’ve spent the past several days finding out…

Every year, reviewers and tech bloggers have all the same things to say when a new Huawei phone comes out; great hardware and camera performance brought down by less than ideal software. Last year’s Mate 9 attempted to address the software complaints a bit with a new version of the company’s EMUI interface, but with a screen at 5.9-inches it was too big for a lot of consumers.

The P10 is Huawei’s latest flagship — in essence a smaller Mate 9 with a more comfortable design — but is it enough to stand out against this year’s aggressive competition?

LG hasn’t had a good year in a long time. The LG G4 was good, but was overshadowed by the Galaxy S6. The LG G5 was, well, simply not very good at all. The LG V10 was solid, as was the V20, but they just didn’t sell. Now, we’re at the LG G6, the company’s first truly great phone in quite some time…

2017 ushered in a new era for Chromebooks with a front and center focus on Android apps. As the year kicked off, we knew there were two big releases coming up, and both debuted back at CES. Leading up to that, attention was on the Samsung Chromebook Pro, but ASUS was in the background working on its own option and, spoiler alert, I think it might be the better choice…
