All screen, no problem. The iPhone X is Apple’s luxury evolution of its market-leading mobile. These are the stats: 5.8-inch Super Retina HD display, 12MP wide-angle and telephoto camera, Face ID, Qi wireless charging, 4K video recording… the list goes on. You can expect two hours more battery life than the iPhone 8, and its facial recognition camera is extraordinary. Remember to say 10 (not X) when you ask for it in store.

The useless box arrived and within 10 minutes my 11yr old was excited to start putting it together. The directions for wiring the motor and switch were either backwards or I’m cross eyed, but once I figured out how to wire it everything else was easy as can be. I would guess even with the struggle wiring it (probably my fault) it still only took about 75 minutes to put together.

The Bigwig: If you already have a Gmail account, a Pixel smartphone, and/or Chromecast, you’d benefit from picking up Google’s home device.

You likely lose your wallet, smartphone, keys and/or remote control frequently. Losing things is normal. But instead of dealing with the frustrations of losing these items, there’s a better way to cope: the TrackR StickR. Where are the keys? Where did you put your wallet? Where is your phone? Trackr solves that problem. It is a quarter-sized device that can be fastened to any item, and then users are able to use the companion app to find whatever the device is attached to. When you lose your wallet, you simply pull up the app on your smartphone and you can make the StickR beep. You can also set up the app to alert you when you venture too far from it, and can use the TrackR StickR to also find your phone, even if it is on silent. It works with both iOS and Android. I have one attached to my remote control so I never have to worry about losing it.

The reason for the lower price is in the sound quality, but we think the C7’s audio strikes a good balance between price and performance.
