The first of a monthly overview of stuff I'm testing. This is how I'll keep LaptopMemo relatively fresh!

And thank you to all the readers (and PR reps) over the past few years. None of this would be possible without you. ;)
Welcome, reader. As some of you may know, I started writing at TechCrunch. In short, it’s pretty awesome, especially since I’ve been writing about technology for nearly seven years (as of this post), starting when I was just 12-years-old. Now I’m 19, in my first year of college. Smart work does equate positive results. It’s been a long, incredible journey…

these are really nice, no joke. 
I don’t normally review earphones, but when I do, they have to be close to the experience of their more powerful, larger counterparts: headphones. Otherwise, I despise them. My main gripe with the category of earbuds — despite their portability and ease-of-use — is that they’re usually wired and do not even come close to the audio experience of using headphones. But, Master…

It’s always nice when an app gets updated to fall in line with the overarching design formula of the mobile operating system that it runs on. In this case, Facebook Messenger, which is used by millions, got the Material Design treatment for Android. Thus, the app hasn’t been dramatically changed, but it codes look nicer — and that’s important, too.…

For the first time ever, Forza Motorsport will grace PC gamers, and for free specifically on Windows 10 machines. A tweaked version of Forza Motorsport 6, Apex will include all the original Xbox features, plus DirectX 12 support and 4K resolution (gaming beast of a machine, not included). In total, there will be 63 cars and more than 20 tracks in six locations.…

want. in black. both. 
It’s about that time — Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where many of the world’s major smartphone manufacturers announces their new wares. It’s Samsung’s turn, and so the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were born — or at least, revealed to the press and public. Both phones retain core values from the year prior, but also improve drastically, in performance,…

What a phone. 
The Samsung Galaxy S7, already? Oh, it’s very real and it’s very fast. But most importantly, it takes the formula seen with the last generation, and instead of completely revamping, makes the necessary tweaks to give a better overall experience. Samsung hasn’t really done that before: every incarnation of the Galaxy S has been a major physical or internal improvement;…

The camera of (expensive)  wet dreams. 
This is only the second time I’ve had a Leica camera in my possession for a review — the first time, I reviewed the Q, a masterpiece of a fixed-lens camera. Well, the German camera manufacturer of great esteem has decided to pursue the pro photography market, with another full-frame mirrorless camera, but with some additional touches that put it…

want one, thanks. 
Another day, another DJI drone — maybe even one that famed YouTuber and creator Casey Neistat can control? The Phantom 4 is the latest and greatest attempt at there being a consumer/pro level drone that has fully autonomous abilities. Two new cameras on the front, two on the bottom, two belly-mounted Ultrasonic sensors, with the main camera — this setup…

bloody wonderful. 
There’s a Japanese camera manufacturer by the name of Fujifilm — and they’re rather good at what they do, despite being behind its better-known counterparts — one starts with an “N” and the other with a “C” — however, that doesn’t matter. When Fujfilm has a camera as small and lightweight as this one, with all the tech needed to make…

it hath arrived.
It’s a big bet for a flagship phone, let me tell you that much. The LG G5 is a noticeable departure from the architecture of previous flagship handset from LG, and sports a new modular accessory system, on top of the new design, specs and software. Oh, and always-on display? Check, LG has it here. First off, the G5 is all-metal…
