Review: Mugen Power extended batteries for the Nexus One

When the Nexus S was first launched, most owners of the Nexus One said said one thing: No thanks. While some do deem the jump to the “S” a worthy upgrade, most have been just fine holding on to their original Google phone until El Goog can come out with something to really top the first. Unfortunately, those original Nexus Ones are getting old. Say what you… Read more

Review: XDA Developers Forums app

When I think of the apps that I use on a daily basis, not including the ones that come standard with any ROM (messaging, phone, browser), there isn’t that many. Other than Twitter, there is really only one app that I use a lot. Everyday. I use it for all my new clocks, new themes, and widgets. I use it to find new apps, keep up on certain types of news,… Read more

MKB Reviews: Hot Reboot

This is the first application I’m reviewing for DroidDog that requires root access, but I think it’s so handy that it’s worth sharing for those of you who have already rooted your Android devices.

I have to admit that I wasn’t sure where to start or how to organize my coverage of the many features, which are still very new to me. But rest assured,… Read more

[Updated] Breon’s HTC EVO 4G full written review (Sprint)

Preface: This post is full of multimedia content (and WIN).  I tried to organize it the best I could.  Also, Minneapolis doesn’t currently have 4G/WiMax coverage.  I couldn’t even find any test towers. I won’t be able to answer any questions about 4G reception. I can tell you there’s a sweet 4G toggle widget. Lastly, like most of my reviews, I… Read more

LG Ally [Verizon] full video review

Df_nWpwdTmk A lot of video hit the cutting room floor, due to the YouTube ten minute time limit.  Much of what I cut was answers to specific questions.  I want to answer your questions, so I’m going to piece together the excess footage.  I won’t be able to record any new video, so I apologize if you’re question doesn’t get answered visually. The… Read more
