Matt is back from his cruise where he tested the Huawei Mate 20 and ordered a One Plus 6T. Kevin ordered some Moment lenses for his iPhone XR and found that the latest Chrome OS build brings Android 9 and USB support to Linux on Chromebooks.
We start this week by remembering our friend and former co-host, James Kendrick. Next, we turn to hands-on impressions of the iPhone XR, LG V40 and Surface Pro 6 followed by some upcoming Apple hardware expectations and a Pixel Slate buyers guide.
This week, we recap the #MadeByGoogle event with very first impressions of the Pixel Slate and week's worth of using the Pixel 3XL. Matt also took the new Sony Xperia XZ3 for a test drive through 8 states in 9 days!
Matt returned his Apple Watch but has kept the iPhone XS Max for now. Kevin's wife gets her first smartwatch for work reasons and Google's WearOS 2 looks good. The Pixel Slate may join the Pixelbook in dual booting into Windows 10.
Matt has his Apple Watch 4 but still waits on his iPhone XS Max while Kevin tries to get DIGITS going on two phones and a watch. We recap all of the new Amazon Echo devices and the latest Chromebook news, including a first look at the Nocturne Chrome tablet.
Lots of money spent this week as Matt is ordering a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 while using a loaner Galaxy Watch. Kevin bought a new Surface Pro even though he still loves Chromebooks. And Fortnite already gets burned by not going through the Google Play Store.
Matt re-tests the HTC U12+ after an update while Kevin left Project Fi (but kept his custom GV number) and is enjoying the Nokia 7 Plus. Thoughts on the Moto Z3, Surface Go and the Galaxy Note 9 plus some new Chromebook features to try.
Lots of gadget money spent this week as Kevin bought a Nokia 7 Plus and Lenovo Smart Display while Matt now has a Garmin Fenix 5 Plus for his wrist. Plus some Pixelbook 2 thoughts and news on the DeX experience for Samsung's Note 9.
Kevin has impressions of the HP Chromebook X2 (and a BB Key2) plus thoughts on the iOS 12 beta, smarter Shortcuts, HTC's shortage of phone sales, and talk of the Microsoft Andromeda device still being light years away from release.
Matt has the OnePlus 6 and Unihertz Atom in hand, so he shares his thoughts on both. We also discuss what to expect at WWDC this week and chat about a great Pixelbook deal, plus new features coming to Chromebooks.
The OnePlus 6 has launched and the price is compelling for what you get. Matt also takes the Coros PACE GPS watch for some running and cycling activities, we share thoughts on a possible $400 Surface tablet, the RED Hydrogen One and upcoming HTC phone.
