New video – Samsung T5 Review

Storage can be a big deal for a lot of people – even when you aren’t editing and producing 4k videos.  So, for a price, Samsung has a variety of solutions.  If you think that you might need some more storage for files, photos, or videos of family and friends, the T5 should be on your list.  There are cheaper options out there, but for a certain group of folks, the T5 is among the best available options.

Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference 2018 – Keynote Recap

WWDC-2018

Today marked the beginning of the software focused event from Apple, targeting primarily the development community.  Or at least, that’s how its been in the past, with this year’s event a bit more “community” than “developer” (or at least that’s what it seemed like to me.  I was a bit underwhelmed truth be told, but here is a rough list of what I found most interesting from the keynote event that took place today.

LG G7 ThinQ pricing to be announced in “coming weeks”

G7_2

In information from LG this morning, it looks like we are getting closer to knowing what kind of value the new LG G7 ThinQ flagship smartphone might be.  In a press released we got via email earlier today, the reported pricing is going to be set by the individual carriers, and is supposed to be “in the ballpark of [the] G6.”  They also point to a linked Android Central article that cites previous carrier pricing for the the G6 (which can be found here) and that could be very good news for potential buyers.  Each carrier priced the G6 between $480 (on Sprint) to $699 (at Best Buy) – but the average price was around $500-550 and if the G7 ThinQ can be had around there, it would be an excellent value.

As a reminder, AT&T will not be carrying the G7 ThinQ, so you’d only be able to purchase the phone from one of the other 3 (or 2?) carriers once its available for sale.  And the rumored launch date is 06/01/18, so we shouldn’t have to wait too much longer.  Let us know if you have any questions about the device in the comments down below.
