GadgetMatch celebrates its second anniversary this month.
While we started off as a YouTube Channel in September of 2014, it wasn’t till a year later in August of 2015 that we began our journey as a tech media company. Much has happened since but our mission remains the same — to match users with the right gadgets to fit their needs.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, which smartphone takes the best photos of them all?
If you’re looking for the best camera smartphone money can buy, look no further. We’ve rounded up the best, currently available smartphones in the world today, took them on a road trip, took plenty of the same photos, and evaluated the results.
We’re happy to announce that Marvin Velasco is stepping up to the role of Managing Editor of GadgetMatch.com starting January 2017. Marvin is no stranger to GadgetMatch and the tech scene in general. He joined us last August as Editor-at–Large and prior to that was Editor-In-Chief of Hardware Zone Philippines.
Marvin is Filipino-German with a Fine Arts and Information Design degree from the Ateneo de Manila University. He’s an avid traveler, surfing enthusiast and cat lover. We call him Mr. Write.
One year ago, we launched GadgetMatch.com expanding on our already growing communities on YouTube and Facebook. Whether you watch our videos on YouTube or Facebook or read articles on this website, or all of the above, we’re glad you’re part of our growing community.
Our Holiday Scavenger Hunt is our way of saying thank you! Over the last two months we’ve given away one smartphone each week, if you haven’t won anything yet this week we’re giving away two phones.
If you read articles on GadgetMatch.com, watch our videos on YouTube, or are always on our Facebook page – you’re probably no stranger to our Holiday Scavenger Hunt where we’ve been giving away one smartphone every week and will continue to do so until the first week of 2017.
In a couple of short hours, Google’s big October event in San Francisco will start. We’re expecting a bunch of new hardware from the Mountain View company, including two high-end smartphones, an Amazon Echo rival, a WiFi router, and a media-streaming device with 4K and HDR support.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 launch event took place at the Manhattan Center in New York this week. There were approximately 1,500 in attendance when the Seoul-based company lifted the shroud of secrecy and gave the world a peek into the future.
A smart device that’s too large to be a phone but too small to be a tablet. In 2011, Korean company Samsung dared to fill a void by releasing the first generation of the Galaxy Note — a 5.3-inch device big enough to outsize any smartphone (at that time) but still small enough to not be recognized as a tablet.
Samsung’s next big phone is all but official. Just about every detail of the Galaxy Note 7 has been leaked online, including the iris scanner it will reportedly have. We’ll be able to confirm that, and more, first-hand later today after Samsung debuts the new Note at the Unpacked 2016 event in New York City.
It has only been a week since the official release of Pokémon Go – an augmented-reality smartphone game that lets you catch pokémon, or fantasy creatures of all shapes and sizes, in the real world – but its impact has been overwhelming.
While the global rollout has been slow, the game has already spawned countless memes, news reports, and crazed fans that congregate in the hundreds all in search of shiny new pokémon.
Navigating the world of technology can sometimes result in more questions than answers. But don’t worry, we’re here to help. Each week, we’ll answer some of your burning tech questions. Like any techie friend would do.
I think many of you will agree that technology has made traveling easier, more convenient, and, more importantly, cheaper than ever before. And when it comes to mobile apps that make short work of just about everything related to vacationing in another zip code, few are as helpful as the free Agoda app for iOS and Android.
Heart-pumping, visually stimulating, and a masterclass of cinematic storytelling in video games. Those are just some of the words that we’d use to describe Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
Indeed, protagonist Nathan Drake’s last adventure on the PlayStation 4 serves as a worthy punctuation mark to the Indiana Jones-inspired series, which sold over 28 million copies worldwide and helped put Sony’s console ahead of the Xbox One in the marketplace.
Last month, Apple announced iOS 10 at WWDC 2016 — and, predictably, the upcoming software update for iPhone and iPad owners was one of the show’s highlights. That is partly because of the new messaging features coming to Apple’s own Messages app.
Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco kicks off in less than 24 hours. This year, the software show promises to be even more inclusive than ever before, as company executives take to stage with announcements about new features and changes coming to its four different platforms: OS X, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS.
Taiwan’s Computex 2016 trade show will run from May 31 to June 4, and one of its key moments will be the announcement of the ASUS ZenFone 3, which we’ve discussed on more than one occasion (see here and here, for example). A lot has been said about the phone, and yet ASUS has largely kept mum about its features and specs, leaving us to speculate what’s in store for us come May 30, when it makes its first appearance.
To that end, we’ve sifted through months’ of hearsay and published a video outlining everything we think we know about ASUS’ upcoming signature smartphone line.
In a few short hours, Google will unveil its latest innovations at its annual Google I/O developer conference.
And going by previous experience, we can expect to hear further details about Android N, which is still in its early preview stage, Project Ara (Google’s highly customizable smartphone), Project Aura (a redo of Google Glass), and other cool stuff the Mountain View-headquartered tech giant has been cooking up over the past months.
It’s not always that you can take apart something and end up with a better product, but that’s exactly the calling card of LG’s latest flagship, the G5.
Yup, you’re looking at the Lego equivalent of a smartphone, or at least the closest thing we have to a truly modular device that can be upgraded as easily as swapping out its components. Obviously, that future hasn’t fully arrived yet, but it’s good to see the Korean manufacturer actively pursuing it.
The EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM is the first Canon macro lens for the EOS-M range of mirrorless cameras, but you don’t have to pay close attention to its name to appreciate how your macro shots and portraits can benefit from it. Because unlike other lenses of comparable focal length and aperture, this one includes two ring flashes built into the front of the lens.
The new 9.7-inch iPad Pro is, in all fronts, the most impressive iPad ever built. It’s got a new A9X processor that Apple says is more powerful than most PCs, the camera of the iPhone 6S, which apart from offering better autofocus and low-light performance, can also shoot 4K video, and a new anti-reflective display with TrueTone technology that adapts color temperature based on its surroundings.
There’s no beating around the bush. Fierce Korean rivals Samsung and LG are gearing up for a head-to-head match at Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona later this month.
Both companies have already sent out invites to the launch events of their respective flagship smartphones, both happening on February 21st. LG has announced LG G5 Day at 2 pm, while Samsung is set to unveil the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge at 7 pm.
It seems like everything is turning “smart” these days and that includes padlocks.
If you’re always misplacing the keys or fumbling to remember the combination to your padlock, then you probably need TappLock in your life. Just like on most high-end smartphones these days, this high-tech padlock can be unlocked with something unique to you – your fingerprints.
The ideal candidate is someone who loves technology and appreciates how it plays a part in making life better. We’re looking for someone who can break down technical concepts and present them in fun, interesting, and relatable ways.
Heading into CES 2016 we knew there was going to be a lot of new tech for automotives. True enough, there hasn’t been any shortage of car tech whether it’s already functional or something that could possibly hit the road in the future.
The digital search for the most creative, most innovative and most successful new breed of small to medium entrepreneurs (SMEs) has come to a close, and PLDT Smart SME Nation finally announced the highly anticipated first batch of winners for the first ever Bozz Awards. Bozz Awards is the first social media crowdsourcing search for the new generation of entrepreneurs who are harnessing digital tools to grow their businesses.
