Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 review: All-around great

Patrick

After a brief stint with Wear OS (then Android Wear), Samsung ditched Google’s smartwatch platform for its own. This resulted in a stunted app ecosystem and some compatibility issues, but over time helped Samsung’s smartwatches blossom into the well-rounded wearables we’re familiar with today. The latest Samsung watch exudes premium hardware and a breadth of features you can really only get from one other company.

The difference is in the numbers

Patrick

The Motorola Edge and Motorola Edge Plus may look identical, but they are vastly different phones under the glassy skin. Where one is a full-on flagship meant to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S20s and LG V60s of the world, the other is a down-spec’d slugger meant to take on the best of the upper mid-range. In other words, what separates the two boils down to some under-the-hood specs that may not mean much to some end users.

Good audio with a fitness twist

Patrick

True wireless earphones have truly been commodified. With many smartphone manufacturers making their own versions, a product has to stand out in all the right ways to make an impact. Amazfit — the purveyors of some of our favorite fitness wearables — recently launched its own take on true wireless earphones with an interesting fitness-focused twist. The Amazfit Powerbuds join the likes of the Jabra Elite Sport in offering heart rate tracking built into the earphones.

In the Android Authority’s Amazfit Powerbuds review, we find out if a fitness focus is enough to stem strong competition.

Redmi 9 review: Value for money or just cheap?

Patrick

Xiaomi’s Redmi sub-brand focuses on entry-level and mid-range devices, and the Redmi 9 is the epitome of its quest. The Redmi 9 is aggressively priced at just $160 — give or take a few dollars. That’s seven or eight times less than a leading flagship device. The question is, do you get seven or eight times less of a smartphone? Or — to put it another way — what does $160 buy you and what’s missing?

Find out in the Android Authority Redmi 9 review.

The price of ultra-fast charging

Patrick

The mid-range smartphone market is flooded with options and standing out can be tough. The Oppo Reno 4 Pro takes an interesting approach. Sure, there are powerful phones, and others that toss more cameras into the mix, but what about fast charging? The Oppo Reno 4 Pro brings rapid 65W charging to the mid-range, and backs it up with a fetching design, decent performance, and yes, a headphone jack.

Is fast charging reason enough to buy the Oppo Reno 4 Pro over more feature-packed alternatives? Let’s find out in the Android Authority Oppo Reno 4 Pro review.
