Last year was the first time that I left my iPhone for more than a month and switch to Android. I used the Galaxy S7 for around 5 Months until the iPhone 7 came out. I've always liked Android but until a couple years ago it just wasn't as good as iOS and when I say good I mean the apps available on the OS were not as good as those on iOS.
I believe 2017 is the first year that it doesn't really matter what phone you choose because all of them are going to be pretty much the same. The iPhone 8 will look and function very similarly to the Galaxy S8 and both devices have lots of features which end up accomplishing the same thing. I sold my iPhone 7 a couple of weeks ago in preparation for the Galaxy S8 because it is the best smartphone ever made. The combination of materials, features, software, and design of the phone make it the most comfortable smartphone I have held and it sports the most beautiful screen I have seen. The iPhone 8 will most like match all this but we are still months away from an announcement this means it's currently Samsung's turn to shine.
I ended up purchasing the Silver since I have had a black phone for the past couple of years and Samsung has given all the S8 colors black fronts which is perfect. If you have yet to see one in person, I highly reccomend going to a store and checking it out. This is what phones will look like for the next couple of years until the foldable displays become more affordable. I’ll be making some videos on the S8 this coming weekend so stay tuned for those!
Nintendo recently announced a new Nintendo 3DS 20th Anniversary Pokémon Edition which will come with Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue pre-installed. It will also come bundled with 2 cover plates and a download code for an exclusive Nintendo 3DS Pokémon HOME Menu theme. The bundle will retail for $200 plus tax and will not come with a charger which ads close to another $20 to the cost of the handheld.
We will also get Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow released on the e-shop ($10 each) so all 3DS owners can get their hands on them.
The New Nintendo 3DS XL that came out in Japan a few months ago has finally gotten a release date for North America. The handheld will be available for purchase February 13 for $199.99 and will come in Black and Red. The New 3DS XL features NFC (for Amiibos), faster processing, an analog C-Stick, and eye-tracking which allows you to view the 3DS from different angles without ruining the 3D experience. It will also have a micro SD card slot (comes with a 4GB card) instead of the full-size SD card slot on the current 3DS XL.
This time around Nintendo is releasing the 3DS XL without an AC adapter so you’ll most likely end up spending closer to $300 if you’re going to get a game with it! Sadly, there is still no word on whether Nintendo will be releasing the smaller/cheaper model with the changeable face plates in here in North America but it shouldn’t be too long before Nintendo announces it.
During their E3 Press Conference, Nintendo debuted footage for the Wii U’s “Legend Of Zelda” game that is set to be released in 2015. The game is said to have a vast open world that will allow players to plan their approach in more ways than any previous Zelda game, check out the footage/trailer below!
The folks over at Nintendo News posted an article with specs of what could be Nintendo’s next generation console. There will apparently be two devices bundled together, a “Fusion Terminal” and a “Fusion DS” which would allow you to play at home and on the go. The specs are much better than what one would normally expect from Nintendo so they could just be made up but we won’t know until Nintendo officially unveils the console. As awesome as it would be for Nintendo to announce the console this year, it is most likely to happen at E3 2015 0r 2016. Check out the specs below and a video from Inside Gaming going into further detail…
The Pokémon YouTube Channel has posted a trailer showing both the X and Y Mega evolution of Charizard. Pokemon X and Y will be released on October 12th and the special 3DS XL systems are available now. Check out the trailer below…

The last Nintendo DS I had was the DSi Lite which I loved using but sold it to get the 3DS on release date. When I went to purchase the 3DS I saw the glossy and overall clunky design and was torn so I decided to wait until Nintendo released something better and it is finally here. Today we got our hands on the new Nintendo 3DS XL and it is the best of both worlds. The device combines the design aspects of both the DSi XL and 3DS and I am enjoying it so far even though I sold the collection of games I had for my DSi Lite. Check out our unboxing video below after the break:
