With more similarities than differences, this is a close fight between Apple's iPhone 15 and Google's Pixel 7.
It’s not common to see people jump ship from one smartphone operating system to another, and by that, we mean iPhone users switching to Android or Android users jumping ship to explore Apple phones. But seeing how attractive flagship phones in both iOS and Android are so exciting, we totally get it! Take, for example, Google’s best against Apple’s champion: the Pixel against the iPhone. To be more specific, we’re talking about the iPhone 15 vs Google Pixel 7 — two of the best phones available in the market today.

There are a surprising number of iPads on the market, so which one is for you? We take a look at all the options.
While shopping for a smartphone, you’re spoiled for choice, and I’d say that both iPhones and top-end Android phones are equally good and offer a lot of features for the price. If you’re shopping for a tablet, however, it makes a lot more sense to go for an iPad because of just how good they are. In terms of hardware capabilities, design, and even pricing, Apple dominates its competitors with such superiority that you need a very specific reason to choose a Windows or Android tablet instead. But we’re happy to note that both Android and Windows tablets have been improving steadily with time because competition makes the market better for us buyers.
Samsung makes some of the finest phones on the market, but with so many devices to choose from, which are the best Samsung Galaxy Phones?

When it comes to handsets, Samsung definitely has a finger on the pulse of what Android users want; the South Korean electronics giant has been launching one banger after the other recently. It's safe to say that Samsung phones consistently make it to the top 3 of Android smartphones, and you're bound to find a Samsung device regardless of whether you’re shopping for a budget phone or a top-end foldable.
Here's how to get the most out of the cover display on your Motorola Razr+
Samsung may have kickstarted the trend of foldable phones, but Motorola took that trend and made it cool. It took the iconic Moto Razr phone and reintroduced it as a foldable in 2019 with the same name. And now we’re in 2023 and have the very stylish and powerful Motorola Razr+, also known as the Razr 40 Ultra or Razr 40 in other countries.
Wondering if the Galaxy Watch 5 makes a good workout buddy? It definitely does, thanks to all of its fitness features
The differences between fitness trackers and smartwatches used to be much larger than they are today. Samsung's smartwatches were once considered lifestyle devices that didn't capture workout data accurately, and you’d have to buy wearables from brands like Garmin or Coros to track runs or swims accurately. Well, I have good news for you — the lines between watches meant for sports or lifestyle have been blurring, and most premium smartwatches available today can do it all. The Galaxy Watch 5 can do an equally good job as a dedicated fitness watch.

Apple’s Find My feature is a boon for forgetful users as it makes it very convenient to find items that we commonly lose.

Are you looking for an accessory to protect your new Apple AirPods 3? We have selected the best cases and covers on the market right now.
The Apple AirPods 3 launched back in late 2021, introducing a cleaner design and a number of new features and technologies. These include Spatial Audio, water resistance, a longer battery life, MagSafe charging support, and more. Despite these earbuds being solid, they're still prone to get damaged. After all, accidents occur all the time, especially when you least expect them to.
If you're spending over $1,000 buying this tablet, you'll want to protect it. Here are the best iPad Pro cases.
In late 2022, Apple launched an M2-powered iPad Pro in 11-inch and 12.9-inch variants. While the 2021 iPad Pro was a significant upgrade over the 2020 model, the 2022 version only came with minor differences; this time around, the company didn't change much, apart from bumping the chip from M1 to M2 and introducing an Apple Pencil hover feature. Other than those tweaks, this tablet retains pretty much all the technical specifications of its predecessor. This means that the dimensions are identical. Thus, cases designed for the 2021 model will work perfectly on the 2022 variant and vice versa. And considering its high price tag, you really should invest in a case. Otherwise, a single drop could cost you hundreds of dollars in repairs. To simplify the process for you, we've picked some of the best iPad Pro 12.9-inch cases currently available.

The iPad Mini 6 is an excellent iPad for those seeking the ultimate portability. This stunning device comes in a variety of colors, and even though it's a couple of years old, you should definitely pick it up if you find a sweet deal. Though, expectedly, it's prone to damages caused by everyday accidents. Fortunately, you can invest in a case that will not only protect it but also freshen up its exterior look. Expectedly, there are tons of different case brands and styles out there, so we will simplify your hunt by highlighting our favorites.
Wiping the app cache can free up disk space and speed up your Android phone.
You might come across a variety of opinions when reading up on whether you should or shouldn’t clear your app cache. Most people insist you leave it to the Android operating system to handle it, while others choose to clean up their app cache occasionally to free up disk space and reduce the risk of crashes. Some people assume clearing the app cache only helps entry-level devices and is not meant for high-end smartphones like the Samsung S23 Ultra, but there are benefits to all types of Android phones.
Running low on disk space? Here's how you can clear the app cache on your iPhone.
It’s almost unbelievable that the earliest phones didn’t have any internal memory. They simply stored phone numbers and messages on the SIM card. We’ve come a long way since, with modern smartphones like the iPhone 14 offering 512GB of onboard storage on the top variant. And there’s good cause for this, as browsing the media-rich internet and downloading and using various apps quickly uses up space.
