Best Samsung XCover6 Pro cases in 2023

The Galaxy XCover6 Pro is durable but not invincible

If you are looking for something different and more durable than the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, then the Samsung Galaxy XCover6 Pro may be what you are looking for. This phone is strong enough to pass the rigorous MIL-STD-810H testing and can withstand whatever you throw at it. The Galaxy XCover6 Pro is hands down one of the best rugged Android phones on the market.

Even if you have a phone that’s as large as the Samsung Galaxy S23, holding onto it can be made infinitely easier with a magnetic phone grip and kickstand. The small accessory can make a big difference when it comes to positioning your phone for easy hands-free viewing or holding onto your phone securely at all times.

Apple Watch Series 9 review: Still my favorite wearable

It might not work with Android, but Apple continues to place its claim on my wrist

Allow me to let you in on a little secret. Despite the fact that my position as the Phones Editor of an Android-focused website means I'm almost always carrying an Android phone (or two, or three) in my pockets, my wrist is usually adorned with an Apple Watch. After more than half a decade across three different Android wearables — dating back to the first-gen Moto 360 — I first picked up the Apple Watch Series 5 in 2020, finally giving in after Google seem bored with its own platform.

There's enough praise out there about the curvy outlines of the Google Pixel 8. The phone is the perfect size, with a stylish profile and soft edges. It feels sculpted somehow so that it fits naturally into the palm of your hand.

While iteration may be the name of the game for 2023's flagship phones, the Google Pixel 8 is a wonderful upgrade from its predecessors. It features a 120Hz refresh rate screen with a whopping max brightness of 2,000 nits, rounded corners for a more comfortable in-hand feel, and an upgraded ultrawide that supports macrofocus and autofocus. The Pixel 8 earns its $100 price increase and then some.

If you're like most people, setting up new gadgets isn't a fun experience. Many even dread buying a new phone, tablet, or other bits of tech, because even with the different methods of moving from an old device to a new one, there will inevitably be some information, apps, or files that don't make the switch. It's been nearly a decade since Google brought Wear OS/Android Wear to the world with the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live, but it didn't take off until the original Moto 360 (R.I.P.) was released a few months later. The platform has only just now added support for watch transfers.

For buds that share the honor of winding up on our best wireless earbuds list, the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro and Jabra Elite 7 Pro could not be more different. Sure, they have a few things in common, such as landing in a similar price range but there are some real, stark differences between the two when comparing their sound quality, noise-canceling prowess, hardware, and other features. Which earbuds are best for you? Let's find out.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro changed the formula for Samsung's watches. Previously, the special version of the watch would be called the Classic. Internally, it would be the same as the regular watch, but with a larger battery, display, and a physical rotating bezel. The Watch 5 Pro is different, ditching the rotating dial and classic design to focus on fitness instead.

When you think of cheap earbuds actually worth buying, it's hard to really come up with a good choice without sacrificing just about everything that makes earbuds worth the money. Noise cancelation, decent quality sound, a durable build and design, these all go out the window when you start looking for anything under $60. However, there's a pair of earbuds that actually deliver all of what you'd expect, and then some, for a much cheaper price than you'd expect.

Amazon Echo Show 8 (2023) vs. Echo Show 8 (2021): Important updates under the hood

Some less-than-obvious upgrades bring Amazon's most versatile smart display in line with the latest smart home tech

Generational upgrades can be a little underwhelming these days, with manufacturers refining their devices instead of introducing tons of new features each generation. Amazon's new third-generation Echo Show 8, though, not only looks decidedly different, but also packs some hardware and software improvements that make it a must-buy for dedicated smart home enthusiasts. There wasn't anything majorly wrong with the 2021 Echo Show 8, and in fact we actually liked it quite a bit, but the new one offers enhanced connectivity and even further improved audio, at only a $20 list price increase over the first two versions.

Even with the latest devices featuring larger battery packs and being more power efficient, there's going to be instances where you're low on juice and need a recharge. Gaming, streaming, and other tasks can eat up battery like no tomorrow, and you won't always have an AC outlet nearby to plug into for a quick boost. Which is why having a power bank on hand is more important than ever, offering a safe and convenient way to keep your devices running throughout the day.

Earbuds have come a long way since the iPod was released in the early '00s. Thankfully, the audio quality has improved significantly since then. Gone are the days of tinny, treble-laden buds tethered to tangled cords, with improved audio and excellent wireless options.

If you are in the market for an Android tablet, it is hard to ignore the offerings from Samsung. The Korean giant makes some great high-end tablets, with the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra representing the best of what an Android tablet can deliver. But not everyone can spend $1,200 on a device. For simple use cases, you need a cheap tablet to get the job done, possibly with a big screen. Samsung has announced the Galaxy Tab A9 and A9+ to cater to such customers.

The company aims to maintain the performance you’d expect from a high-end mechanical keyboard while looking slim and professional on your desk.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab A8 isn't a powerful flagship tablet, but it is one of the best cheap Android tablets, thanks to the big screen and good battery life. A lot of people only want a large screen to watch movies and casually browse the web, and the Tab A8 is more than capable of that despite the low price. It's not immune to scratches and scrapes, so you'll want to protect it.

The best Chromebooks aren't exactly performance monsters suitable for gaming (though if you attach a monitor they'll handle indies and some less demanding titles), they're incredible, portable productivity solutions. That said, to truly unlock their potential, you'll need to pair them with a proper keyboard, particularly if you're going to be doing a lot of writing or editing.

Samsung has offered some of the best Android smartwatches for several years, but with the release of the Pixel Watch last year, Google finally started making big strides. This year's release of the Pixel Watch 2 is closing the gap even more and providing a fantastic option for Android users. But does Google's offerings stand up to the proven power of the Galaxy Watch line-up? Here's how the new Google Pixel Watch 2 and Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 compare.

You wear a smartwatch with the thought that you won't have to pull out your phone frequently. While this was apt for regular phone calls, navigation, and messages, it is also true for your favorite messaging app, WhatsApp. During the Google I/O event, alongside announcing the Wear OS 4, which is now available for the best Android smartwatches, Google unveiled that it partnered with Meta to bring WhatsApp to Wear OS.
