Sound Control: The Apple HomePod Review

 By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

Apple's HomePod is one of the most mystifying products in the market today. The most recent product category from Cupertino is essentially a Siri-powered Apple Music speaker with HomeKit inclinations.

After spending time with the device, however, I discovered a choc-full of innovative features and functions aimed to delight iPhone users.

Review: Apple Watch Series 2 and watchOS 3

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

With the water resistance, GPS and improved battery life the Apple Watch Series 2 becomes an even more personal wearable but more than a gadget or accessory, it can really help keep your fitness goals front and centre if used properly.

Apple Watch Series 2 removes a lot of the ambiguity of its predecessor and is now honed to be a better all-around fitness tracker with a built-in GPS and improved water resistance that should please users who want to take it swimming or go for runs or bike rides sans iPhone or iPhone Plus.

Review: Motorola Moto X Play

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

The Moto X Play felt as fast and responsive as last year’s model and matched the performance of a more expensive Samsung Galaxy Note 4, it exceeded both of these in battery life, easily edging into two and a half days of mixed use.

The latest and most advanced Moto X smartphone (at least for Canadians) is the Moto X Play, which fits in as a nice middle model between the stellar Moto G (3rd Gen) and the Moto X Pure/Style coming to other countries.

The Moto X Play takes many of the renowned features and styling of the the Moto X (2014) and actually improves on them. We have a larger 1080p HD display at 5.5-inches (403 ppi) and no longer using the AMOLED technology but a more even-coloured LCD technology. This isn’t a jaw-droppingly stunning display, but it is clear, readable, and reflection free and is more energy efficient which plays into the device’s overall superb battery life.
