MrMobile [Michael Fisher]

I'm gonna say this right up front: even if we were talking about the best smartwatch of 2020, nearly $2000 is too much to ask for any wearable. But in the nine months since I bought the Garmin MARQ Captain for review, I’ve covered twelve other smartwatches – and every. single. one. of those smartwatches would be better … if it had "a little Captain in it."

Here’s five features from the Garmin MARQ Captain – and the Garmin MARQ series as a whole – that I wish every other smartwatch or wearable tech gadget of 2020 would steal.

Remember the Oppo Find X? If you live in the U.S., probably not: it was a crazy smartphone that wanted to give you as much screen as your money could buy, so it stowed its cameras behind a motorized, sliding top. In 2018, at the near-nadir of smartphone design excitement, it was pretty awesome.

Well, in the world of 2020 smartphones have gotten a lot more ambitious. We’ve got three types of folding phone on store shelves; dual-screen phones are making a comeback; and I just this week saw a trio of crazy concepts from TCL straight out of a sci-fi future (see my Instagram account listed below for the hands-on). Against that backdrop, it’s tough to get excited about something as conventional as the Oppo Find X2 Pro. But with a display that pushes the limits of eyesight, a battery that charges insanely quickly, and the welcome return of the leather backplate … I couldn’t resist a quick hands-on with Oppo’s next attempt to Find X. Join me for a first-impressions look in the MrMobile Oppo Find X2 Pro Hands-On!

[APPLE MACBOOK PRO 16” REVIEW / MACBOOK PRO 2019 REVIEW]

With the exception of the time I “upgraded” from Windows 98 to Windows Millennium Edition (and then immediately back again) I’ve never experienced tech whiplash like I have with Apple’s MacBooks.

Five years ago I made the MacBook Pro 2015 the foundation of my production pipeline; I logged thousands of hours on it, building hundreds of YouTube videos. It had all the ports I needed and it was rock-solid reliable. I didn’t covet it like I do flashier laptops … but I valued it a lot more, because I knew I could rely on it every single day.

Then, Apple did something interesting: it took everything I loved about that 2015 MacBook Pro – and ruined it.

2016 was a dark year for the Apple MacBook Pro. The ports? Gone. The reliability? Lost- along with half my keystrokes on that notoriously fragile keyboard. From shot speakers to thermal throttling to backup failures, the 2016, 2017 and 2018 MacBooks Pro were varying flavors of compromise that I came to detest. It was only my love for Final Cut Pro, the software I use to make these videos, that prevented me from jumping entirely to Windows. 

For the MacBook Pro 16” / MacBook Pro 2019, Apple didn’t bring back my ports or take off the touchbar … but the changes it did make were enough. I’m MrMobile and for the first time in four years … I feel like I’m home. This is the Apple MacBook 16” Review.

In 2004, Motorola released a cellphone that was harder to use, less comfortable to hold, and more expensive than almost any cellphone that came before it. Yet, the Motorola Razr V3 became the best-selling clamshell flip phone of all time – mainly because no one had ever seen anything quite like it.

Fast-forward sixteen years … and it’s surprising just how much the Motorola Razr 2020 has in common with its progenitor. The new Moto Razr features the same aggressive lines; the same pronounced chin; there’s even a retro mode that emulates the original (complete with “Hello Moto” ringtone!).

The trouble? This new Motorola Razr for 2020 is still not a very good phone.

The question: whether that will matter to the target audience.

The age of folding screens is finally upon us. First, there was the Samsung Galaxy Fold: a phone that expanded into a tablet. Then came the Motorola Razr, a device that condensed into half its footprint for the pocket. And now, Samsung is punching back with the Galaxy Z Flip – a smartphone about the size of the Galaxy S20+ when it’s open, and the size of a coaster when it’s closed. Will the Galaxy Z Flip be a crushing blow to the Motorola Razr – and more importantly, will Samsung's newest folding phone find a place in your pocket?

2019 wasn’t a banner year for the traditional smartwatch. The Apple Watch Series 5 is only a slight improvement over the Series 4; the same mostly goes for Samsung’s Galaxy Watch Active 2; and Google’s WearOS is still very inconsistent ... to say the least. But 2019 *was* the year that hybrid watches finally got interesting.

For me, that started with the Fossil Hybrid HR and its innovative e-ink display … and with the Vivomove series, Garmin has taken it to the next level with better looks, better displays … and, higher prices. So how much would you pay to keep your smartwatch's brains hidden? Find out in the MrMobile Garmin Vivomove Luxe / Vivomove Style Review!

[TESLA CYBERTRUCK TEST RIDE]

When Tesla said it was building an electric pickup truck, my biggest fear was that the company would take an existing Tesla, chop off the back and bolt a bed on. That might look okay when Simone Giertz does it – actually I saw her “Truckla” Tesla pickup truck here in Los Angeles and it looks amazing – but I didn’t want to see Tesla become one of those predictable companies that just iterates on an existing design and tries to make it exciting with a splashy press event (kinda like most every smartphone launch of the past few years). 

Fortunately, Elon Musk was in no mood to make something boring when he dreamed up the Cybertruck. I was on hand at the Tesla CYBRTRK launch event at the company’s Design Center in Hawthorne, CA and I even got to take a Cybertruck test ride of my own! Join me for my first impressions of the first electric pickup truck that stands a proper chance of changing the way we get work done on the road!

[MOTOROLA RAZR 2019 HANDS-ON / MOTOROLA RAZR 2020 HANDS-ON]

The re-imagined Motorola Razr is part flashy technological feat and part practical portability perk, sold at a premium price despite some forgettable specs. If you’re thinking that sounds familiar, then you much have been around for the first Motorola RAZR launch back in 2004! Despite its high price, that RAZR product family would go on to sell 130 million units over the next four years, going down in the history books as the most successful flip phone of all time. Can Motorola capture lightning in a bottle again? I recently got a sneak peek at the company's flexible-display flagship branded simply "razr" – and while my enthusiasm for the foldable category doubtless colors my impression, I came away hopeful for the Motorola brand name for the first time in four years.

To tell you about what happened at the Microsoft Surface Event today in New York City, I need to take you back to what happened last December, in Hawaii.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Summit 2018 brought beautiful scenery, excellent company, and the debut of a chip that promised to revolutionize laptops. The Snapdragon 8cx promised to double your battery life, keep your laptop connected 24/7 no matter where you were, and make your next one thinner and lighter than ever. Right from the jump I said this would be a perfect fit for Microsoft’s Surface laptops … and today, the company finally made it so.

Today's Surface event saw the unveiling of the Microsoft Surface Pro 7, Surface Laptop 3, Surface Pro X, Surface Earbuds – and (yes) finally a Surface Phone! The Surface Duo is quite a different beast entirely from its Windows X-powered sibling the Surface Neo ... but it has three things in common: a 360-degree hinge, dual displays ... and a Holidays 2020 release date. Join me for a hands-on (and eyes-on) with the Surface Duo, Surface Pro X and friends!

[ASUS ZENBOOK PRO DUO REVIEW]

Whenever a tech company tries something really different, there’s always a cadre of killjoys in the comments. “But how praaaaactical is it?” “But what prooooblems is it trying to sooooolve?” “What. Is. The. Point?” Make YouTube videos long enough, and the constant onslaught of negativity is enough to get anyone down.

But you know what? That kind of skepticism is not a bad thing. The fact is, you should be alert to gimmicks. You should want real utility for your money, not just a buzzworthy toy to drool over.

The nice thing: every once in a while, a company manages to give us both at the same time. Today's review covers the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo. (“Duo” because of its *dual* 4K touchscreen displays!) It has more working area than any laptop. It has more power than most people will need. It has terrible battery life and barely fits in a bag! But despite that last part ... it also has my glowing recommendation. Join me for the MrMobile ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo Review!

[ONEPLUS 7T FIRST LOOK / ONEPLUS 7T HANDS-ON]

I may not have the conviction of my colleague Hayato at Android Central, who recently declared the OnePlus 7T to be his favorite phone of 2019 – but I do get where he's coming from. For $599, the OnePlus 7T gets a lot right, and it feels more in line with the company's device lineage than the slightly "extra" OnePlus 7 Pro. In fact, I'm in agreement with Michael Josh Villanueva over at GadgetMatch: the OnePlus 7T also feels like the phone OnePlus should have offered *instead* of the OnePlus 7 Pro (at least at first). But with the Pixel 3a trailing it by $200 and the new iPhone 11 at just a Benjamin more, the OnePlus 7T has to nail almost every detail to justify its pricing ... and the toughest part for any phone – the camera – has never been OnePlus's strong suit. Join me for part one of MrMobile's two-part OnePlus 7T Review!

[THE BEST BATTERY PACK 2019 / BEST WIRELESS CHARGER 2019]

If you just got the new iPhone 11 (or any of 2019’s newest smartphones), congratulations – but don’t expect your battery to last as long as you want. To keep you staying charged while you Stay Mobile, a battery pack or a wireless charger can be a big help – but most of the “best battery packs”/“best wireless chargers” roundups out there just recycle the same handful of brand names. No disrespect to Anker or RAVPower … but there are a lot of lesser-known companies out there making some remarkable battery banks and Qi chargers! So for this video, I’m showing you the ones I think are worth a look, and I’m ending with my new favorite battery bank – which I think might even be the best battery pack of 2019! Join me for the MrMobile Best Battery / Best Wireless Charger Roundup, 2019 edition!

[IPHONE 11 HANDS-ON / IPHONE 11 PRO HANDS-ON]

I came to New York City specifically to go hands-on with the new iPhone 11. I’ve now gotten to try all three of them, from the bone-stock iPhone 11 to the petite iPhone 11 Pro to the prodigious iPhone 11 Pro Max. I’ve shot endless sample photos with their new wide angle cameras (which I’ve been badgering Apple to include for three years). The phones are thicker and heavier – but trade-off we've been insisting Apple make for years. And most surprising of all, the price point on the entry model is $50 lower than last year, while the Pros have retained their price despite adding many new features. In short: Apple has given us nearly everything we’ve asked for.

So why, as I walk the NYC streets with my friends Rene Ritchie and Hayato Huseman, with a brand new smartphone on its very release day … why is it so hard for me to care?

Find out in my Day-One Deep Dive with the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max ... and stay tuned for my iPhone 11 Review series, coming soon!

If you know the name Toughbook, you probably think of it as the beefy laptop for construction sites, cop cars, and military bases.

[MRMOBILE'S 5G SPEED TEST IN PROVIDENCE, RI]

Exactly ten years ago, I bought my first 4G smartphone –the HTC Evo 4G– and while the phone was amazing, the Sprint WiMAX network I tested it on ... wasn't. It was too new, too thin, and deployed at a higher frequency that couldn't penetrate buildings very well – so it was barely useable indoors.

You might remember a few months back I tested Verizon's 5G network in Chicago and found many of the same issues. All 5G networks are new, and the millimeter-wave bands Verizon is using for its rollout are many times higher frequency than even those WiMAX bands that gave me such trouble back in ‘09. That means they penetrate buildings even more poorly, even if they do provide incredible data speeds.

So what I wanted to find out was, how much difference does a few months and a much smaller city make to making 5G work in real life?

To find out, I took a train to Providence, RI to test Verizon's new 5G network there ... and just to push the limits a little bit, I'm doing the testing and the filming and the editing entirely on a Samsung Galaxy Note 10+. Join me for MrMobile's latest 5G speed test!

The devices were tested live on Verizon's 5G network deployed in Providence, with only one other group of testers (network engineers and their guests) using the network at the time of testing. MrMobile does not produce paid or sponsored reviews; neither Samsung nor Verizon was offered copy review or approval prior to publication, and no compensation was requested or provided in exchange for this coverage.

When CrackBerry Kevin first suggested I try out the Bose SoundWear, I thought it looked an awful lot like a toilet seat. But it's not – nor is it an airline pillow, horseshoe, or boomerang. The Bose SoundWear is a wearable speaker, and while it'll never replace your headphones, it does complement them in a way that's more useful than I ever expected. Join me as I try out my first wearable speaker in the MrMobile Bose SoundWear review!
