Review: LG LX370
The LX370 has a number of decent features that work pretty well. The camera and video camera, for example, are nothing to laugh at. The music experience, in comparison, is not all that great. I liked that threaded messaging was available in the SMS department, but the email application is a bit clunky in my opinion.
Where the LX370 really shines is with the basics. The hardware simply works. The controls are well placed and do what they are supposed to. For those who need a phone more to make phone calls than to take care of social networking needs and media consumption, the LX370 from LG is a solid pick.

Review: Apple iPhone 6s Plus
Apple's newest iPhones may look like last year's, but the company packed tons of appealing updates into the 6s Plus. New features such as 3D Touch and the improved cameras impress, while refinements to iOS 9 and how the 6s Plus interacts with the platform give the handset new-found power.

Review: Google Clear Case for Pixel XL
Google's own Clear Case for the Pixel XL lets users focus on the phone rather than a busy design, but it falls short in covering some basics. It's an inexpensive option, to be sure, and yet you can probably find better ways to spend your money.
