LG G8 ThinQ ATT Android Smartphone Review
LG G8 ThinQ Android Smartphone Screams on AT&T’s 5Ge Network

AT&T is currently upgrading its network to 5G, only a handful of 5G smartphones are currently available. Until Qualcomm produces more 5G modems, Huawei releases their handsets, and smartphone makers release fully 5G standardized phones, AT&T’s 5Ge wireless protocol, which is a combination of tightly grouped and upgraded antennas, faster fiber optic back haul, and software to support everything, is next in the US. While Samsung’s S10 5G, Note 10 Plus 5G, and Motorola’s Z series with a 5G add-on are available, they only support one standard of 5G. Enter the LG G8 ThinQ Android 9 smartphone.

You could get a premium soundbar or sub for bass, and a speaker for your bedroom, but they typically were not linked together.

Altec Lansing Baby Boom XL Speaker Best Buy Review
Altec Lansing Baby Boom XL Speaker Best Buy Review

Small Bluetooth wireless speakers have come a long way in the last few years. I’ve enjoyed trying out a handful of them while lounging around the pool, hiking on desert trails, and exploring the gold country of Northern California. Altec Lansing’s newest Baby Boom XL is rugged and waterproof. It can float if you want to lounge in the pool too.

The moment I turned on the Baby Boom XL from Altec Lansing, it went directly into pairing mode to connect with my iPhone XS MAX. For $29.99 each, get two and link them together via its True Wireless mode. Want great tunes while camping, these are inexpensive and IP67 certified to be there when you need them.

Honor View20 Android Smartphone Review
Honor View20 SIM Unlocked Android Smartphone Review

Honor’s View20 has set the bar very high in 2019 for what a flagship Android phone must have. It has several groundbreaking features like its screen “hole punch” front facing camera and the newest 48MP Sony rear camera. Honor is synonymous with being bold. Its Phantom Blue color and the ‘advanced nanolithography technology’ gives it a ‘dynamic V-shape color gradient with a gleaming effect,’ which is eye popping in a good way. Its 8 core HiSilicon Kirin 980 CPU, 10 core GPU with Turbo graphics mode, is what other Android smartphones will be compared to this year.
