It’s no secret that glass-backed phones are fragile. From a design perspective they are generally pleasant on the eyes and nice in the hand in terms of feel. But when applied to basic terms of practicality, we can’t say we’ve ever heard a good reason to cover a mobile device in two sides of fragile glass. Protecting one side is hard enough. Thankfully, cases are everywhere in the mobile world. And while the Nexus 4’s case selection isn’t nearly that of the iPhone (or other more popular Android devices), there are still some options to be had. Today we’re taking…

I’ve had the chance to test out many Bluetooth speakers over the past many months, and have a few more to show you moving forward. Finding the alternative to some of the bigger names out there that can benefit those needing a better price point without sacrificing sound is definitely what I’m here to do. One of the biggest things I look for in finding the best Bluetooth speaker is portability and great sound. I love the idea of being able to keep headphones and a speaker in my bag if I so need to start an instant dance part…

In the phone world, there is a ton of competition in the Android sandbox. Samsung, LG, HTC, Motorola and many more companies are pumping out countless new Android devices each quarter. And while Samsung is the only one making any meaningful progress (and money), there’s no shortage of options for consumers. On top of all the great 3rd party manufacturer hardware there’s Google’s own Nexus line, which while lacking some custom baked-in functionality, benefits from being above all the carrier and manufacture crap that all too often slows down the Android devices we know and love. In the tablet sphere,…

Everyone reading this probably has owned, used or at least ogled over a battery pack at some point in time. Us here at Gadgetsteria can only survive with at least one or two in our arsenal. We can probably go an entire day without one, but that’s usually impossible. And when we are out and about covering a convention, we utilize at least 3-4 packs a day. They come in all shapes and sizes, different features and different battery sizes, so when lugging them around, the biggest battery in the smallest package will win every time, hands down. So when…

With the debut of the Wireless Plus at CES this past January, I've been eagerly awaiting my shot at testing out Seagate's brand new wireless media hard drive. After ditching my MacBook Air – and all of it's storage – for the iPad, having portable storage on the go is a must. I opted for the 32gb version of the iPad 3 which really gives you no room for saving all of your files, music and movies. After the demo of this device and the app that comes with it, I couldn't wait to get my grubby hands on it.…

HTC has watched their once commanding lead in the Android world dwindle, with Samsung scooping up the majority of Android related fanfare. And then there’s Apple and iOS. Together, Apple and Samsung are making HTC’s financial directors weep. Windows Phone is a reboot of sorts for HTC, a fresh start if you will. While they’re still very much trying to compete in the Android world, the relatively small field of competitors and competing devices in the Windows Phone world means HTC has a much better chance of getting noticed. The company’s 8X is just the device they need. Hardware Where…
