  • Doogee announces the S70, a rugged (and ugly) gaming phone

    Phone manufacturer Doogee mostly sticks to cheap, uninteresting devices that fly under the radar. It does occasionally pop up with some weird piece of hardware like the sliding Mix 4 or the ruggedized S60. Today, Doogee is getting in on the latest smartphone fad: gaming phones. The S70 has the keeps the questionable rugged styling from the S60 and adds upgraded specs and a gamepad attachment.

    The Doogee S70 positions itself as a gaming phone, but the specs are a step below most other phones in this emerging category.

  • VRidge has added better Oculus Go controller support for SteamVR games

    A major VRidge update has added extra support for using Oculus Go controllers with SteamVR.

    Thanks to some savvy developers, it’s possible to stream SteamVR games to mobile VR systems, like Oculus Go. I already wrote a guide on using Air Light VR (ALVR) to get this done, but a recent update to RiftCat’s VRidge software, an alternative method for streaming, has added better controller support. This is key when trying to make up lost ground between the two motion controllers PC-based VR uses and the single controller used with the Oculus Go. Let’s take a look at how to get everything set up, as well as what to expect when using a Go controller with SteamVR games.

  • The newest PlayStation 4 Gold wireless gaming headset is down to $80 today

    This PlayStation accessory is just inches away from being an essential for gamers.

    Sony’s PlayStation Gold wireless headset is down to $79.99 via Amazon today. This headset was released in February earlier this year, and today’s deal is just $5 above the lowest offer we’ve seen on it. It regularly sells for $100 at other retailers such as Best Buy.

    The older version was a really well-liked gaming peripheral, but the new one is getting good critical reviews as well. PC Mag gave it 4 stars. The team here has a breakdown of the differences between the two and talks about whether or not you should upgrade.

    The headset has 7.1 virtual surround sound, a noise-canceling microphone, a free companion app, and a comfortable feel for long-term gaming. You can even remove the faceplates and customize it according to your own style. It’s still somehwat new so it doesn’t have a huge amount of user reviews, but close to 150 users give it 3.8 stars out of 5 collectively at Amazon.

  • Google is experimenting with a new discovery-focused podcast app called Shortwave

    Google has a penchant for repetition. For instance, why have one messaging app when you can have a handful (Allo, Android Messages, Hangouts etc.)? And while that method isn’t exactly yielding overwhelmingly positive results, it seems the software giant is taking its approach to podcast platforms now, as well. An incubator for experimental products within Google, Area 120, is quietly developing an audio platform that, according to a recent trademark filing, allows users to “search, access and play digital audio files and to share links to audio files.”

    The software in question is called Shortwave, and may be a more social take on podcast listening — or at least, that’s how Google’s press statement makes it seem.

  • Lenovo Smart Display: Everything you need to know

    The Echo Show is so 2017.

    Ever since the Google Home came out in 2016, Google Assistant-powered smart speakers have been among the most popular smart home gadgets on the market.

    We’ve seen these devices come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and now with the Lenovo Smart Display, we’ve got a Google Assistant speaker that comes with its own screen.

    The Lenovo Smart Display is one of the most powerful (yet still rather affordable) smart speakers on the market right now, and if you’re already sucked into the Google ecosystem, should make for a great addition to your home.

    Here’s everything you need to know!

    It comes in two sizes

    Unlike most other Smart Displays that have been announced, the Lenovo Smart Display is not a one-size-fits-all product. Instead, there are two different versions you can choose between.

    The base model is the most affordable and comes with an 8-inch touchscreen and white plastic back. If you’ve got a bit more cash to spend, you can pick up the 10-inch mo…

  • Samsung Pay is now available in South Africa as platform celebrates 3rd anniversary

  • MrMobile: The Galaxy Note 9 is a smartphone that’s actually worth $1000

    I get it, you guys: no one thinks smartphones should actually cost a thousand bucks. Motorola kicks out incredible quality on the low end with its Moto G series; the OnePlus 6 delivers a truly exceptional experience at under $550; and buying last year’s flagships is another smart way to save coin. Given all these options, it seems ludicrous to drop ten Benjamins for any mobile device.

    But the $1000 phone isn’t going anywhere, folks – and not just because people like me are “saying it’s okay,” as I’ve read many times in the comments. Rising component costs, market forces like inflation, and (yes) good old-fashioned greed will ensure that four-figure phones remain a reality for years to come. Plus, in a country like the United States where four out of every five smartphones are sold by a carrier with a monthly installment plan, the sting of that spend is sufficiently dulled that people are still whipping out the wallets. Just ask Apple.

    The question then bec…

  • Hands-on with Microsoft’s new Xbox Game Pass app for Android

    At Gamescom 2018, Microsoft debuted a new Xbox Game Pass mobile app for Android and iOS, allowing you to browse and push game installations remotely to your console.

    Xbox Game Pass is a $9.99 per month service that gives you subscription access to dozens of games. It also has some true headliners, such as Fallout 4, DOOM, and The Division.

    During Gamescom 2018, Microsoft unveiled a new Xbox Game Pass app for Android and iOS mobile devices, allowing subscribers to browse the catalog of available titles from their phones, while also pushing installations remotely over the internet. At the event, we got an early hands-on look with the Android version.

    A look at the Xbox Game Pass app for Android

    The app is far faster than the usual Xbox app for Android, allowing speedy and functional perusal of the existing Game Pass library. You can set up notifications for new catalog additions to keep up to date on what is available, and you can add your favorite Game Pass titles to a library l…
