Android 13 tips and tricks: 7 features to try after updating

After months of developer previews and beta releases, Android 13 has finally arrived on Pixel phones. Compared to the major overhaul that was Android 12, it's a relatively light release as far as new, user-facing features go, but it features a lot of tweaks to existing features—and not all of them are for the better. Here are seven tips and tricks for navigating the latest Android release on your Pixel.

NZXT Canvas 32Q Curved

PC cases or even fully built PCs. That’s the stuff for which we know NZXT best. But monitors? Not so much. Enter the new NZXT Canvas 32Q Curved. It’s a 32-inch, 1440p and 165Hz panel that begs an immediate question. When it comes to gaming monitors, is it better to have something from a screen specialist, for instance LG, that’s then been optimised for gaming? Or can a gaming specialist apply their know-how to screens? Time to find out.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 review: if it only had a better battery

After testing Samsung smartwatches, I’m usually left with a furrowed brow, wondering what could have been. It’s not because they’re bad, ugly, or a pain to wear. Actually, it’s the opposite. Hands down, Samsung’s smartwatches are the best Android users can buy right now, and the $279.99 Galaxy Watch 5 is no exception. (Though that may change once the Google Pixel Watch arrives.) If Samsung would fix one — maybe two — things, its smartwatches would make the Apple Watch yesterday’s news. I was hoping to report that Samsung had finally nailed it, but for better or worse, the Watch 5 is more of the same.

Samsung keeps getting more serious about foldables, and I love it

Like most teenagers in the mid-2000s, the first cellphone my parents got me was a flip phone. It was a cute, Sonic blue flip phone from Sanyo (if anyone remembers that brand), and I was able to do almost everything I could on a smartphone today. Except for texting, thanks to Sprint’s four cents per character rates.

How much is the Samsung Odyssey Ark?

Samsung has opened up its confusing ordering system for the Samsung Odyssey Ark. The 55-inch behemoth of gaming glory will ship in September. Currently, Samsung is collecting names and emails to reserve the chance to buy the Odyssey Ark. Once preorders open, you’ll get an email with the details to put down your order.

Sonos: A Long-Term Perspective

The last quarter for Sonos was very disappointing. Management expected exceptional results as in 2021 without taking into account the change in the economic scenario. Sonos is a very strong brand and the products are great but I have doubts about what the real competitive advantage is. This also makes it difficult to assess future.

Motorola hopes a 144Hz display and a big battery will give it the Edge over the Pixel 6a

It's probably hackneyed to joke about how many phones Motorola releases in any given year. At this point, the company's strategy is clearly working, as it's overtaken LG to become the third-largest smartphone brand in the US. On the heels of a brand-new foldable and a phone adorned with a first-ever 200MP camera, Motorola is announcing something a little less exciting: a new Edge device. The Motorola Edge (2022) might look as boring as its name on paper, but if you're shopping for a new phone under $500, it might just beat the Pixel 6a and Galaxy A53 for your attention.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 review

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is a do-everything device that presents few compromises. It is good for photography, multi-tasking your work and watching Netflix, however the high price might put off some buyers. Two-minute review. Is it possible that we've reached the age of refinement in the foldable phone...
