Google’s best phone in years

Last year’s Google Pixel 3a was an accessible portal to the Pixel experience. It represented a way for people to try Google’s vision for Android without breaking the bank — something that hasn’t been possible since Google dumped the Nexus line for the more premium Pixel series in 2016.

This year’s Pixel 4a is an evolution of that vision. With the Pixel 4a, Google finally figured out how to mix the best aspects of Nexus and Pixel into one device. Its hardware is simple and minimalistic, but each individual component helps make Google’s killer software even better. With great build

Every year, Samsung launches a new entry in its ultra-premium Note line. In 2019, though, Samsung upended its own formula and released two devices in the Note line: the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 along with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus. The Plus variant is physically larger with more features, better specs, and a higher price.

We’re only a few days away from the launch of the 2020 iteration of Samsung’s premier phone line. This got us thinking about how the Note 10 Plus has held up over the past year. That’s exactly what this Samsung Galaxy Note

Insane battery life at a cost

I’m a big proponent of equipping as many mobile computers as possible with cellular connectivity. After all, what’s a laptop or tablet without the internet? While a handful of laptops — mostly enterprise-focused machines — do indeed offer LTE, the number isn’t nearly enough.

Lenovo takes things a step further with the Flex 5G, which is a convertible laptop that includes not only 4G LTE, but Verizon Wireless 5G.

Is it worth getting excited about a 5G laptop? Find out in the Android Authority Lenovo Flex 5G review.

A gaming powerhouse for everyone

Asus is an enormous computer company. It makes nearly every PC component you could think of, from motherboards to RAM to monitors.

However, more recently Asus has become known for gaming. It makes gaming-branded laptops, monitors, mice, and even motherboards, all titled under the ROG (Republic of Gamers) masthead.

It felt only natural when Asus decided to make the ROG Phone in 2018. It was a popular time for gaming phones, with devices such as the Razer Phone and Xiaomi Blackshark offering ramped up specs and unique features that gave mobile gamers a competitive edge. Asus wanted to go even

OnePlus Buds review: Perfect for OnePlus smartphones

Patrick

Smartphone manufacturers are catching on to the trend that they can grab extra cash by accompanying their handsets with proprietary headsets. Today’s flash in the pan: the OnePlus Buds. Listeners are afforded a pair of uncanny valley Apple AirPods for a hair less than $80. Whimsy and portability aren’t enough to compensate for the lack of functionality beyond the OnePlus ecosystem, though. Let’s see how these earbuds work, and compare them to the competition.

Who should get the OnePlus Buds?
