tnkgrl Mobile podcast – #110

April 16, 2015

The wonderful Dan Seifert joins me on episode #110 of my podcast (1 hour 1 min), in which we rant and rave about the HTC One (M9), the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Apple Watch, and more… We also share our excitement for the upcoming LG G4 and Microsoft apps — yes Microsoft!

Note: I’m well aware that the video version of this podcast ends suddenly after just 27 mins. Something must have happened during the Hangout on Air. I’ve reached out to Google for support and hopefully the full video will be restored.

Time flies when you’re busy job hunting! Here’s episode #108 of my podcast (1 hour 16 min) with special guest Michael Fisher — the Captain to phones himself — joining me to discuss Lollipop and the new Nexus devices…

In addition to Android 5.0, the Nexus 9, and the Nexus 6, we talk about the Moto X, Moto G, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Alpha, Lumia 830, and Lumia 735 — to name a few. There’s also a thorough conversation about OIS and that leaked Lumia prototype.

tnkgrl Mobile podcast – #106

August 6, 2014

For episode #106 of my podcast (1 hour 10 min), I was joined by the fabulous Chris Davies! The plan was to talk about Microsoft and the recent layoffs, but the conversation degenerated rapidly into other topics such as the LG G3, HTC One (M8), HTC Desire 816, Samsung Galaxy S5, Nokia Lumia 930, and Amazon Fire Phone, natch…

Another thing: Obi-Wan Kenobi and Angela Lansbury somehow both made it into the recording — you’ve been warned :)

Samsung Galaxy S5 review

July 14, 2014

Yes, I’m a bit late to the party here, but I’ve been using the Samsung Galaxy S5 for several weeks now, and here’s my video review (finally).

– Cons: looks and feels cheap, TouchWiz is a mess, camera lacks OIS
– Meh: phase-detection AF, heart-rate monitor, fingerprint scanner
– Pros: gorgeous display, fantastic battery life, water resistant

Special thanks to the friendly people at Samsung for lending me a review unit.
