I just want to do a quick update on a pretty big change in my life. Tomorrow will be my last day with Engadget. The last 3.5 years have been some of the best of my life and I will always treasure the privilege and opportunity to work with such a great crew.
Starting next week, I begin a new adventure with a PR firm called Weber Shandwick. They're one of the most reputable firms in the business and I'm excited to have an opportunity to work more closely with media outlets and tech companies in an advisory position. There are rumors that I might be moving to San Diego this spring, but I can neither confirm nor deny such allegations. (Hey, I'm getting the hang of this PR thing rather quickly, yeah?)
Taking the mobile reins at Engadget is +Chris Velazco  who has been with us for several months after jumping over from TechCrunch. He's a talented writer who is going to do some great things there. (Don't make a liar out of me, Chris.)

+Brad Molen congrats on the huge change. Weber can definitely use your talent. Hope to see you at CES.

While we wait for Nexus news, check out my review of the Galaxy Note 4, which is the best big-screen phone on the market right now (and yes, I know the Nexus 6 is coming out and it might be good too, so we'll just have to wait and see). And yes, accusers of bias, I liked it more than the iPhone 6 Plus. :)
What began in 2011 as a brand-new phone category has flourished into one of the most popular in the world. Smartphones with big screens (phablets, to

Hey Brad, have you noticed a kind of bluish effect on the note 4 screen when the phone it's tilted? This normally happens when the screen is white.

I was on Tech News Today... erm, today, talking about LG's upcoming smartwatch with a circular display.  
 
Is the LG G Watch R a Moto 360 killer?

LG plans to release a round smartwatch next week. The company is currently one of only two Android Wear smartwatch makers with products actually shipping. (Samsung is the other one.)

A leaked -- but now public -- teaser video brags about being actually round (unlike the Moto 360). 

Engadget's +Brad Molen has some timely comments:

Release or officially announce? Seems like they should announce it first.

I spent some time with the folks who designed Project Tango's new tablet, and some ogling of prototypes may have taken place. 
Speck Design's clientele has ranged from Apple to Samsonite to Fisher-Price in its history, and now it can add Google to the list of high-profile

Here's my review of Android Wear, with a healthy helping of LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live on the side. 
When I was a tiny tot, I watched Knight Rider and pretended I was Michael Knight, talking to KITT on my watch. Yet now that there are real-life watches

Seriously +Brad Molen , This is the most complete Android Wear review I've read so far. It's really good. Thanks.

Here's my review of the Samsung Gear Fit. It looks great, and I admire Samsung's attempt to blend fitness band with smartwatch, but sadly the entire thing comes off as half-baked. Hoping the next version will be much improved, because I think there's a lot of people who'd be willing to give such a hybrid device a shot. 
Fitness trackers and smartwatches come a dime a dozen, but devices that combine the best of both? Still exceedingly rare. Now, however, Samsung thinks it

I got to use one for about ten minutes in a store. I really like the curves glass touch screen. Color is nice.

Here's my piece about phone leaks and the impact they have on companies and all of us. There's actually more good that can come out of it than I originally thought.

Fantastic video. (Of course, it's such a good idea that this also means we'll see about 100 more videos just like it next year!)
 
This video is staggeringly beautiful.

Happy 4th July guys.

Forgot to share this on G+ earlier, but here's my review of the OnePlus One, a $300 phone with all the trimmings and CyanogenMod built-in. It's a fantastic device so far, and the best value for phones in that price range. 
Look at your phone. If you can honestly admit that you love every single thing about it, I have good news: You can stop reading this review, since it
