Essential accessories for the Moto Z Force Droid

What are the essential accessories for the Moto Z Force?

Now that you've got your shiny new Moto Z Force, it's time to shop around for the must-have accessories to match it. Not to worry — we've done the digging, and we have a rundown of the absolute essentials for your Moto Z Force!

Moto Mods

Motorola wins the mod game with the first three Moto Mods that are available for the Moto Z Force. Using powerful magnets, they snap right onto the back of the phone and then snap off when you want to attach the next one. Get one or get them all!

Incipio offGRID Power Pack

Incipio offGRID Power Pack

This slim power pack will add to the battery life of your Moto Z Force – up to 20 additional hours before the phone's internal battery needs to kick in.

It also adds a little bit of weight and protection to the back of your phone, which is helpful since it's a slim and slightly slippery fella. Keep it nearby for those long days (that turn into long nights) when you know you'll be using your Moto Z Force nowhere near an outlet or computer.

JBL SoundBoost

JBL SoundBoost speaker

Forget about having to pair a portable Bluetooth speaker to your Moto Z Force; the JBL SoundBoost is a powerful speaker that's automatically recognized by your phone when you snap it into place.

It has up to 10 hours of independent battery life, so the party can go on and on. The built-in kickstand lets the speaker have its full sound range without you placing your Moto Z Force face-down. It's also great for speakerphone conference calls with multiple listeners in the room.

Moto Insta-Share Projector

Moto Insta-Share Projector

Why crowd around your phone screen to watch a video when you can turn your Moto Z Force into a stellar projector? The Moto Insta-Share Projector will do just that in any space.

The integrated kickstand means you can watch videos hands-free and this tiny projector will make any flat surface into a flat screen that can measure up to 70 inches; hang a sheet in the backyard or use that blank wall space in the living room for a massive movie night anytime you like. It also adds up to an hour of projection time beyond your phone's battery life.

Vinsic USB-C car charger

Vinsic USB-C car charger

Always in the car and concerned about keeping a strong battery charge? Not to worry; the Vinsic USB-C car charger has you covered.

It features over-voltage and short circuit protection, so you have very little (if anything) to be concerned about. It also has 5V/3A output, so your Moto Z Force will charge quickly while you're on the go. The additional USB-A port allows you charge a second device while you're at it and it's small enough to tuck into the glove compartment when it's done.

APLUS desktop charging cradle

Keep your desktop organized and your Moto Z Force always in your sights with the APLUS desktop charging cradle, designed especially for your new phone.

This USB-C dock charges your Moto Z Force and makes it easy to sync the phone to your computer. How's that for multitasking? It also keeps your phone at an ideal angle for viewing and hands-free usage, whether it's charging, or you just want to use it as a hands-free helper and safe place to put your phone so you don't misplace it.

Cambond 6.6-foot USB-C to USB-C cable

Cambond USBC cable

An extra cable is always a good idea, and whether you just need another one around the house because you can never seem to find one, or you'd like to have a spare at the office, the Cambond 6.6 foot USB-C to USB-C cable is a great choice.

The cord is wrapped in nylon fiber, which helps to prevent fraying over time. It's also a little longer than some standard cables, so you don't have to feel stuck while your Moto Z Force is plugged in.

Headphones

You have a couple of options when it comes to headphones for the Moto Z Force. You can opt for Bluetooth connectivity, or you can use the headphone jack adapter for a wired pair. You choose, and we've got an excellent pick from each category.

Jaybird X2 Sport wireless Bluetooth headphones

Jaybird X2 Sport Bluetooth headphones

There's much to love about the Jaybird X2 Sport wireless Bluetooth headphones. Let's start with the lifetime sweatproof warranty; that's a great feature by itself, but we're not going to stop there.

These headphones give you up to eight hours of music and talk time with your choice of over-or-under ear fit. They ship with a variety of in-ear tips so you're virtually guaranteed to find a comfortable fit. They also come in a wide range of colors that will be as subtle or stand out as you like.

Ghostek Turbine Series wired earbuds

Ghostek Turbine Series earbuds

If you prefer a wired headphone option, have a look at the Ghostek Turbine Series earbuds. They're available in either black or white (so they match everything) and they come with a one-year warranty.

The built-in microphone and remote controls mean you don't have to go fishing around in your bag for your Moto Z Force to take a call or bump up the volume. They come with several variations of in-ear comfort tips so that you find the fit that works for you, and they're made of a durable ceramic material that gives them a solid, well-constructed feel.

PLESON ultra slim crystal clear case

PLESON ultra slim clear case

Show off the original hardware of the Moto Z Force with PLESON's ultra slim crystal clear case. The flexible TPU case is anti-watermark and anti-fingerprint, so say goodbye to that foggy, muddy look your last clear case had.

This case offers some extra grip and drop protection for the slender Moto Z Force. The precise cutouts give you access to buttons and ports while protecting the camera lens and and screen edges.

Essential accessories for Moto Z

Essential accessories for the Moto Z Droid

What are the best accessories for the Moto Z Droid?

The Moto Z Droid was only just released, but it's never too early to start looking at must-have accessories for Motorola's latest flagship. Here are a few that we think are worth your money.

Moto Style Shells

Moto Style Shells

Moto Style Shells are the solution to when you want to change the look and feel of your Moto Z on the fly — they just snap on to the back of the phone and magnets hold them in place. You can quite literally have a day look and a night look for your phone if you feel like it.

As of this writing, the shells come in three textures, fabric, faux wood, and leather, with six varieties to choose from, including crimson ballistic fabric, washed oak, black leather, and more.

Just don't rely on them to provide much protection, since they don't cover the phone's edges — they just cover the back. That being said, they do keep the phone's back from heating up too much.

Tudia TPU Bumper Shock Absorption case

Tudia TPU Shock Absorption case

The Tudia TPU Bumper Shock Absorption case is not going to give you much protection from drops, but its flexible TPU composition will give you something to hold on to, which is a good thing because the Moto Z Droid is an exceptionally thin phone.

It comes in clear, as well as several other colors, so whether you just want some extra protection that you can wrap around one of the Moto Style Shells without covering it up, or you want a different look, you have options.

If you're not looking for heavy-duty protection and/or you want a clear case that shows off your Moto Z Droid Style Shell, try the Tudia TPU Bumper Shock Absorption case.

NXET USB-C Charge Dock

NXET USB-C Charging Dock

If you're tired of having to fuss with USB cables everywhere, then the NXET USB-C Charge Dock is for you. It doesn't take up much space on your desk, or wherever you typically charge your Moto Z Droid, and since it's USB-C, it will work right out of the box without the need for adapters.

While charging, your Moto Z Droid will remain totally accessible, so you can swipe through your notifications, check the time, or play some tunes one-handed. It also lets you place your phone at three different angles, so you can always find the most comfortable view for you.

It is important to note that the NXET USB-C Charging Dock does not support fast charging, nor is it a wireless charger; however, it's a great option if you have limited space. It also supports USB 2.0 transfer speeds when connected to your computer.

Bose QuietComfort 35

Bose QuietComfort 35

The Moto Z Droid does not have a headphone jack. While it does have a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter, having to lug around another cord that you can easily lose is less than ideal; a much better solution is to use Bluetooth headphones.

Featuring top-notch sound, an impressive battery life, best-in-class active noise cancellation, and extended listening comfort, you can't do better than the Bose QuietComfort 35 for Bluetooth headphones.

The QC-35 can last up to 20 hours on a single charge, so you can keep listening all day without worrying about your headphones dying out on you, and what's more, its Active EQ adjusts tone and balance automatically so that regardless of the volume, you'll hear every sound with almost no distortion.

Moto Mods

Moto Mods are Moto Z add-ons that add to or enhance the functionality of the Moto Z phones. They are very easy to install and use: just snap them onto to the back of the Moto Z — that's it. They're held in place by magnets, so mounting and dismounting them is simply a matter of breaking the magnetic seal. There are three Moto Mods as of launch-day: The JBL SoundBoost Speaker, Moto Insta-Share Projector, and the Incipio offGRID Power Pack.

JBL SoundBoost Speaker

JBL SoundBoost

One of the three initial Moto Mods available for the Moto Z Droid, the JBL SoundBoost Speaker snaps onto the back of the phone and turns it into a miniature boombox. Yes, party like it's 1989, but without the acid-washed jeans, big hair, and bulky stereo.

With its two speakers pumping out sound at 3W each, you'll be banging your head and bopping to the beat with no distortion, and with its built-in battery, you can enjoy your tunes for an extra 10 hours. The best thing? You don't have to worry about pairing or setting these up: just snap the speaker mod into the back of your phone and listen.

Grab a JBL SoundBoost Speaker if you like to rock your tunes without headphones, or if you want to pump out the jams at home or anywhere. We won't judge if you bring out your (or your parents') old parachute pants or bangle-bracelets.

Moto Insta-share Projector

Moto Insta-Share Projector

When you want to share those photographs of your last vacation to Disney World or your expedition to Chichen Itza with your cousins, you can pop on the Moto Insta-Share Projector, another Moto Mod and voilá! You have a 70-inch projector that transforms any flat surface into a gigantic screen.

It really is that simple to use: just snap it into place, aim it at an available wall, and you've got a huge screen on which to display photos or watch Netflix. The kickstand it comes with can adjust to any angle, so you can position the screen however you like. You'll also love the additional hour of projection time you get before the Insta-Share Projector starts using your phone's battery.

Whether you want to share pictures at a family get-together, or you want to watch the latest blockbuster on Netflix with friends, the Moto Insta-Share Projector is a must-have accessory for your Moto Z.

See at Motorola

Incipio offGRID Power Pack

Incipio offGrid Power Pack

As our own Phil Nickinson said in our review of the Moto Z, the Incipio OffGRID Power Pack is the Moto Mod that he would buy right away. According to him, it's well worth the money for that extra bit of juice.

The 2,220 mAh battery pack boosts the life of the phone by up to 22 hours and comes in designer options from Kate Spade New York and TUMI. I don't think Phil gives a hoot about that, but you might care about that sort of thing. There is also one that will recharge wirelessly.

Just go out and get the Incipio offGRID Power Pack. You won't regret it.

Best cases for Moto Z Force

Best Moto Z Force Droid cases

What are the best cases you can get today for the Moto Z Force Droid Edition?

The Moto Z Force Droid Edition was just recently released, but that's not going to stop you from getting a case that's perfect for your new phone. And it needs a case; the Moto Z Force is less than 7mm thick and it's on the slippery side. A good case, paired with the Moto ShatterShield that's exclusive to the Moto Z Force, will keep your phone safe and ding-free for a long time. We'll update our list once the phone's been in your hands for a little while, but for now, we have some excellent contenders for best cases.

Moto Style Shell

Moto Style Shells

The Moto Style Shell is a magnetic attachment, just like the Moto Mods, that snaps onto the back of your Moto Z Force. They're an easy add-on to your pre-order and they range in price from roughly $20 to $25.

These shells come in fabric, wood, and leather options that add a little extra texture to the back of your phone, and they offer some protection for the raised camera edges. They also help to keep fingerprints and other gunk off of your nice new hardware, and dissipate the heat that has been known to radiate from the back of the Moto Z Force.

The downfall of the Moto Style Shell is that none of the shells wrap around the edges of the phone, they only protect the back. The ShatterShield will do its part to protect the Moto Z Force from drops and bumps, but you may want some extra protection for the rest of the body. Nonetheless, these shells do offer a unique look for your Moto Z Force and won't add any bulk to the slim frame.

PLESON ultra slim crystal clear case

PLESON ultra slim crystal clear case

To show off the hardware of your Moto Z Force, a clear case is the perfect choice. This is especially true if you decided to go for the white and fine gold or black and rose gold combinations that are just too beautiful to hide.

The PLESON ultra slim crystal clear case is ideal for keeping the phone's slim profile while adding on some grip and drop protection. The soft TPU bumper offers raised edges and corner protection to keep the screen and camera extra safe when you're having a busy day or a clumsy moment, and the precise cutouts don't sacrifice ports or button usage.

The clear case from PLESON is also anti-watermark and anti-fingerprint so you won't get that foggy, muddied look on your case over time.

LK ultra scratch resistant protective case

LK ultra scratch resistant protective case

Add a touch of something formal or fanciful to your Moto Z Force with a scratch resistant case from LK. The five color varieties are on the inexpensive side; grab more than one and have a case that matches every occasion! The solid black version pictured here goes with everything.

The smooth, flexible TPU case easily snaps on and off when you're looking to pop on one of the Moto Mods. The button covers (rather than cutouts) are responsive and provide some extra protection against daily dust and dirt. The non-slip TPU won't let your phone go sliding off of an uneven surface, either.

LK's protective case also resists stains and marks that are bound to happen during your day or night, so it'll last you for as long as you need it.

Planning on being a little hard on your brand new Moto Z Force? Whether it's a rough commute or you just plan on being outdoorsy and unpredictable, the Cimo shockproof heavy duty case should be in your case repertoire.

The dual layer shock and drop protection is paired with a textured back surface that provides lots of extra grip without adding a ton of weight and bulk to the phone; just enough for some added padding. Unlike a lot of cases, Cimo's offers a cutout for the back speakers so sound won't be compromised a bit during those spontaneous dance parties you're always throwing (or is that just us?). The raised bezels front and back protect the screen and the camera to boot.

For a more rugged and sporty look for your Moto Z Force, Cimo is a great pick. You can also grab it in seven different colors, like the armor gray pictured here.

Best microSD cards for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7

Best microSD cards for the Samsung Note 7

What's the best microSD card to use with the Samsung Note 7?

After abandoning expandable storage for 2015's flagship releases, Samsung has righted the ship in 2016 by reintroducing of microSD slots on both the Galaxy S7/S7 edge and Galaxy Note 7.

If the 64GB of internal storage on the Note 7 just ain't going to cut it, you'll want to invest in a quality microSD card and add up to 200GB of additional storage. That means you'll have more space for all your music, 4K videos, photos, and animated gifs, and you can save the phone's internal memory for your favorite apps and games.

SanDisk Ultra 200GB microSDXC Card

SanDisk Ultra 200GB microSDXC Card

If you're serious about maximizing your storage, you'll definitely want to consider this 200GB microSDXC card from SanDisk. With write speeds up to 90MB/s, you'll be able to record in HD or 4K to your heart's content. And you'll still have room to spare for all your movies, music and other data. Amazon regularly has this one on sale for under $80, so this is your best value for sure.

Samsung MicroSD EVO+ 256GB

Samsung MicroSD EVO+ 256GB

Since we're talking about a Samsung phone, we'd be foolish not to mention Samsung's best option for microSD. With read speeds up to 95MB/s and write speeds up to 90MB/s, this card should be able to handle whatever you throw at it. Better yet, Best Buy is offering a Galaxy Note 7 pre-order deal, where you can get the card for free! It's a pretty good deal, but if you've already got the Note 7 you'll want to get this card via Samsung's website.

SanDisk Extreme PLUS 64GB microSDXC

SanDisk Extreme PLUS 64GB microSDXC

With transfer speeds of up to 95MB/s, you're able to add your favorite music and media in a flash with the included SD card adapter. This card is designed to withstand anything life throws your way — including x-rays — and comes with a lifetime limited warranty.

Best cases you can buy today for Moto Z Droid

Best cases you can buy today for Moto Z Droid

What's the best case for the Moto Z?

The ultra-thin Moto Z Droid and its mods aren't even out yet, but there are already some cases available, which is a good thing, because, like we said, it's really thin. Really thin means it really needs a case – like, it really does. Here are our picks for right now.

Moto Style Shells

Moto Style Shells

Moto Style Shells are basically just interchangeable magnetic backs for the Moto Z Droid — all you have to do is pop out the current back on your device and stick a new one on. The magnets will hold it in place until the next time you want to swap it out. Pretty cool, right?

As of this writing, the shells come in three textures: fabric, faux wood, and leather, with six varieties to choose from, including crimson ballistic fabric, washed oak, black leather, and more. Right now, they appear to be out of stock, but keep checking back for updates.

The main thing to be aware of with these shells is that they don't cover the edges of the phone, so they don't provide much, if any protection. They just look really nice and may help dissipate some of the heat coming off the back of the device.

At minimum, you're going to want one of the Style Shells — the Moto Z Droid is way too thin completely naked; however, we recommend adding something like either the Cimo or Tudia case in the clear variety for extra protection around the edges and some additional grip.

See at Motorola

SoGa Wallet case

SoGa Wallet case

The SoGa Wallet case for the Moto Z Droid lets you ditch your wallet and gives you some protection for your phone at the same time.

Made of faux leather, it comes in several styles, from colorful patterns and designs to plain brown or black leather. Its magnetic closure is easy to open and close and keeps your phone, along with your money and credit cards, securely tucked away.

If you're tired of digging through your purse to find your phone or you don't have room in there for a wallet and a phone, then the SoGa Wallet case is for you.

See at Amazon

OEAGO Defender case

OEAGO Defender case

The Moto Z Droid is very thin — just 5.19mm — that means that drops can be especially deadly. So, if you're prone to dropping your phone, you need a more protective case than just one of the Style Shells, or even one of the thinner clear varieties.

Right now, we're recommending that you go with the OEAGO Defender because it's thicker and gives you a better grip on your device. Made with a polycarbonate outer layer and a soft silicone inner layer, it buffers your phone from impacts and shocks — we don't recommend dropping your Moto Z Droid at all — but if you do, you might still have a working phone afterward.

For the accident-prone, the OEAGO Defender case is the one to get for the thin and fragile Moto Z Droid.

See at Amazon

Tudia TPU Bumper Shock Absorption case

Tudia TPU Bumper Shock Absorption case

The Tudia TPU Bumper Shock Absorption case is good for adding extra grip and some light protection to the Moto Z Droid.

It's not going to give you much protection from drops, but its flexible TPU composition will give you something to hold on to. The Moto Z Droid is an exceptionally thin phone, and a case that wraps around its edges, like the Tudia, is a must-have for at least the most minimal protection.

Additionally, its raised bezel around the screen and the camera protect these vulnerable areas from scratches; this is especially important since the camera sticks out from the back of the phone a bit.

It comes in clear, as well as several other colors, so whether you just want some extra protection that you can wrap around one of the Moto Style Shells or you want a different look, you have options.

If you want minimal protection and/or you want a clear case that shows off your Moto Z Droid Style Shell, try the Tudia TPU Bumper Shock Absorption case.

See at Amazon

Cimo Grip

Cimo Grip case

The Cimo Grip case for the Moto Z Droid offers some protection, while remaining minimal and unobtrusive.

It's composed of a TPU shell that snaps onto the Moto Z Droid and wraps around its edges. It has a raised bezel all around the screen and also around the camera lens in the back.

The dot pattern on the inside helps to minimize fingerprints and watermarks to keep your phone looking sharp. It comes in a few colors, as well as clear, so you can show off a Moto Style Shell if you have one.

If you want a case that will protect your Moto Z Droid from the everyday perils of life and gives you the option to display those awesome Moto Style Shells, then the Cimo Grip is the case you want.

Best battery cases for Samsung Galaxy S6

Choosing a battery case for your Galaxy S6

What's the best battery case for Galaxy S6?

We know the Galaxy S6 doesn't have the best battery life, and though wireless and quick charging help minimize that issue, it doesn't help when you're mobile. Cases that integrate external batteries can potentially fix battery woes, and while they aren't a new idea, they may be on your radar for the first time since picking up a Galaxy S6.

We've rounded up a handful of popular battery case options for the Galaxy S6 and put them side-by-side to see which one offers the best trade-off on battery, size, protection and value — here's how they rank!

Mophie Juice Pack (3,300 mAh)

Mophie Juice Pack

Mophie is sort of the gold standard when it comes to battery cases, and while that started with iPhone battery cases, it has smoothly transitioned to models for popular Android phones as well. There are two distinct Juice Pack models to fit the Galaxy S6 or S6 edge (and different color choices), but in either configuration they offer full device protection with a single case that also integrates a battery.

The Juice Pack is dramatically better made than any of the offerings here, as you'd expect for the increased price. It has a hard plastic shell that's rigid and tough, and on the inside has a soft touch coating to hold the phone tightly.

The Galaxy S6 fits in it with amazing precision, with just a very small lip over the front of the phone. It's just as large as any other battery case, and while the hard plastic coating is slicker it does have some grip to it. There's a standard "chin" at the bottom where the USB port joins up with the phone, and because of its thickness there's a headphone extension jack to use if you don't have headphones with a small jack on them.

The 3300 mAh capacity lands between the other cases in this roundup, and Mophie gives it the claim of "up to 100 percent" additional battery for your GS6. Just like your phone's internal battery, it's rated for 500 full recharges, and you choose when to have it powering your phone with a convenient hardware switch on the back.

We tested the Juice Pack's capacity just the same as the others and found it added 90% battery to the phone in just under three hours, even while the phone was in use on mobile data. That's not bad — it charged more and faster than the other cases, despite having a smaller overall capacity. That just shows what you can get from the higher quality components in the Juice Pack.

It's pretty clear that if money is no object, the Mophie is the best choice, simply due to its fantastic build quality, slick design and highly-rated battery. Of course price is a factor for most picking up a battery case, and $99.95 is a steep asking price for something you may not want to use all of the time.

PowerBear Extended rechargeable battery juice pack (3,500 mAh)

PowerBear

PowerBear's 3,500 mAh juice pack is a one-piece case that allows you to charge it and your Galaxy S6 simultaneously, all in a sleek and slim package that won't add a ton of weight to your pocket, which is really what you want out of a battery case, since they're supposed to be "power on the go".

PowerBear claims that you get an extra 130% charge out of this case, but it's more like the ZeroLemon case in this roundup – you're more likely to get about 50%, taking anywhere from three to four hours to charge.

This case has a handy on/off switch, so that you're not wasting power when you don't need to, which makes it a great everyday case or an excellent emergency case.

The PowerBear's design is pretty typical, but it's still fairly thin for a battery case and it fits quite seamlessly, so if you like your Galaxy S6 to be in a case but not feel that way, then the PowerBear is likely the best choice for you.

If you regularly kill your phone before day's end and want a battery case that will last you a while, then check this one out, since PowerBear offers a 2-year warranty, which should get you through the lifespan of your Galaxy S6 until you upgrade.

ZeroLemon Slim Power battery case (3,500 mAh)

ZeroLemon

The ZeroLemon Slim Power Battery isn't quite the same setup as the others, as its battery and case are actually separate. The 3,500 mAh battery is a self-contained slab that has two USB ports on it — one for input, the other output — and a removable U-shaped USB connector so that it nestles up against the back of a Galaxy S6. The case is just a basic rubber affair, but it's designed so that the battery and phone can be held together inside comfortably while charging.

The battery is fully operational with other cables and can be used without the case, though the implication is that you'll be using the whole thing together most of the time. The case itself wraps the whole phone for a bit more protection than others, but the design means that the ZeroLemon setup is larger than others and offers a lower capacity. It also ships with a headphone jack extension cable due to its size, which is burdensome to say the least.

It has similar charge rates to the others, and when combined with the simple 3,500 mAh cell it was only able to charge up the Galaxy S6 by 50% — and that took about 3 hours and 45 minutes to do it. That's not very fast, and for a battery case that's bigger (and more expensive) than some of the others we expected to get a little more out of it.

The one benefit ZeroLemon has going for it is an explicit 180-day warranty — how much value you actually put in that is up to you.

Consider whether a battery case is even the best choice

Now that you know there are dozens of very similar battery cases to choose from for the Galaxy S6, you should probably take a step back before buying and decide whether a battery case is the best choice for you. The basic idea of having a battery case is the same for any phone — make it easier to stay mobile while also having a phone that isn't dead. Strapping the battery to your phone of course accomplishes that goal, but as we've seen it isn't a perfect situation.

Though there are differences between each battery case, they all present very similar problems in terms of actual use. No matter the size of the battery, adding an external cell in a big rubber and plastic case seriously hurts your ability to use the Galaxy S6 like you would normally. Being able to recharge your phone without a cable is great — but if you have to nearly double the weight and thickness of your phone for the whole time you charge, it isn't that great of a trade-off.

Read: Top external batteries for the Galaxy S6

The concept of not having to worry about power or plugging in is an appealing one, but a battery case may not be the best way to handle this problem. If you have the right equipment, chances are you'll be far better off getting a 50 percent charge in 30 minutes from a quick charger when you're in your home, office or car. And when you have to be mobile, an external battery pack can charge your phone (and tablet, and friend's phone) for the same price and in one-fourth the time that these battery cases can — and when you're done charging there's no added bulk to your phone.

With wall charging and external batteries you're helping fix the battery issues while also reducing the number of additional issues you add to the experience — that can't be said about a battery case. For all but the most serious of road warriors who just cannot afford the time to plug in at any point during the day, a wall plug or battery will be the best choice. But if you're in that small minority that needs it, give these battery cases a look and find the best model for you.

Fugoo Tough XL Bluetooth Speaker

When big just isn't big enough.

Whether you're trying to make the most of limited time out in the wilderness or just need hardware that can take a beating from every day life, there's definitely a market for extra-sturdy speakers. We've had a look at a wide range of rugged Bluetooth speakers to complement such rough-and-tumble environs, but the Fugoo Tough XL is easily one of the most impressive we've seen of the bunch.

It's a system that consists of two parts: a waterproof speaker and a removable sleeve that provides hardcore impact protection. The exterior bears a gruff design, aluminum and stainless steel construction, big hardware playback buttons, and a collection of mounting options.

There's also this other cool thing about the NVIDIA Shield Tablet case — it's got built-in channeling chambers designed to direct sound from the speakers up toward your face so that you can hear it better. Isn't that awesome?

Samsung announces new Gear VR with interchangeable USB-C plug, refreshed design

5
Samsung Gear VR

Samsung ditches the white plastic for a sleeker look, with lots of functional changes in tow.

Read all about it on VR Heads!

Samsung Gear 360

Samsung waits for the Galaxy Note 7 launch to get the 360-degree camera into the wild.

After an impressively long rollout that involved multiple announcements, teases and pseudo-availability, Samsung has finally announced that the Gear 360 will be widely available from its retail partners. Starting August 19 at a variety of retailers, you'll be able to go pick up a Gear 360 camera for $349, which is the same price initially announced months ago.
