Mobile World Congress 2018: Recap

Mobile World Congress 2018: Recap

A lot sure happened!

Barcelona was packed with innovations and new technologies last week! One of the biggest highlights was the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus launched which we already shared here. Now, let’s go head on with the rest of the highlights from this year’s Mobile World Congress!

Let’s start with new devices!


As promised last CES, Alcatel launched several handsets namely the Alcatel 5, Alcatel 3V, Alcatel 3C, Alcatel 3X, Alcatel 3, Alcatel 1X, Alcatel 1C—all having the 18:9 display ratio. The Alcatel 1X was the first Android Go phone to be released on Google’s “Android Go” Platform. That’s not all, they also released tablets the Alcatel 1T 7 which has a 7-inch display and the 1T 10 which has a 10-in display.


LG got into the game with the release of the LG V30S ThinQ and V30S ThinQ Plus. Externally, they are a lot similar to their predecessors with the 6-inch Full Vision Display.

They do get AI camera upgrades like QLens that does visual image searches on Amazon or Pinterest. And the AI Cam that offers the ideal camera settings for a photo based on image recognition.


Hold on… did we just see the LG G7 lurking around in the event? Even Evan Blass took notice of the blog that shows a hands-on with the device.


Sony also came to the scene with the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact. Steering away from its usual design, they came with a more modern look better camera and audio. Quite identical except for the display and battery. The former having a 5.7-in Full HD+ screen and the latter with 5-in.

ZTE did not come empty handed and released the Blade V9, Blade V9 Vita and the Tempo Go— their Android Go phone offering.


Nokia is also joining the no headphone jack scene with is Nokia 8 Sirocco with a 5.5-in OLED display. This was launched alongside mid-tier Nokia 7 and 7 Plus and a refreshed 6-in LCD display Nokia 6.


5G coming in fast folks! Phone carriers Sprint, Verizon and AT&T showcased their plans on how they’ll roll out as early as late 2018 to 2019. With other phone carriers to follow hopefully by 2020.


Of course congrats to the GLOMO (GSMA’s Global Mobile) Awards Winners!


Apple (though a no show in the event) won Best Smartphone 2017 and Disruptive Device Innovation Award. While Samsung Won Best Mobile Innovation for Payment and Best Mobile VR or AR.


Surprisingly, Huawei bagged a lot of awards with Best Mobile Network Infrastructure, Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough (along with Sprint and Airspan), Best Network Software Breakthrough, Outstanding Mobile Technology Award- The CTO’s Choice, Best Mobile Innovation for Smart Cities, Best Mobile Innovation for Emerging Markets, The Green Mobile Award and the Outstanding Contribution to the Mobile Industry.

Rumored iPhone Models for 2018

The latest rumors on the next iPhones: yes, not just one (or two)!

How many new iPhones will Apple launch?

It’s been just months since the iPhone X was launched and they’re already rumors about the next batch of phones!

Rise of the new design

So far, the rumor mill is going for 3 or at most 4 iPhones being released by Apple this year. There’s still no clear names so for now, let’s go with:

Of the 4 phones, the iPhone SE 2 is the most uncertain if it sees the light of day this 2018. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo report that should this push through, we’ll mostly just see internal updates like a faster processor.  If ever, a hardware change that we might see is a glass back for wireless charging like the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. And its release can be as early as May or June 2018.

The main reason is the California tech-giant’s focus is on the 3 other models to avoid last year’s shipment delay concerns. The iPhone X (2nd gen), iPhone X Plus and iPhone X SE are expected to be launched on September, Apple’s usual cycle on their smartphones.

We might have to say goodbye to the Touch ID as these 3 phones are said to feature the Face ID as they will be equipped with the TruDepth camera system.  The iPhone X (2nd gen) and iPhone X Plus will have 4GB of RAM and made with Stainless Steel Frame Material.


The iPhone X SE will represent the affordable version of the 3, having an aluminum frame material, single lens camera and uses LCD display. But LCD display that’ll be used may only require ultra-slim 0.5mm bezels on all sides!


Excited to see the new phones?! (But not really about the rising price…)

The prices are pretty wallet-denting (with the iPhone X at the $1,000 price range), but on the bright side, you don’t have to pay a flagship price for the best protection for your devices! As promised, Tech Armor will always be here to help you out!


We’ll always have the latest (like the iPhone X) to keep your phone safe from drops and scratches.;)

Super Bowl LII Party Tips

Super Bowl LII Party Tips

It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year for NFL fans… Super Bowl!!! Will Tom Brady and the New England Patriots continue their NFL dominance or can the Philadelphia Eagles FINALLY get that elusive ring? This is sure to be exciting.

Finalizing your party plans or gearing up for your trip to Minnesota for the game (lucky you by the way!)? None of the above cause you have to go to work? 🙁

We have that all covered below!

Getting Ready

Having a Checklist helps! You can see this one for ideas. Or create your own to make sure everything is set! (Special shoutout to those going to the game)

Food (and drinks) at the party are as important as the game! Whip up amazing and easy to prepare food like Cool Ranch Snack Mix or Mini Nacho Pizzas! Chicken wings are definitely a must and here’s a useful life hack: you can evenly coat them using a salad spinner!


Or to have a more football vibe feeling, you can make some Frozen Footballs or Turkey and Avocado Onigiri Footballs! You can view the recipes on your iPad while cooking to keep track. It’s best to protect the screen from smudges while cooking with our Ballistic Glass Screen Protector– the oleophobic coating helps prevent greasy fingerprints. Here’s another useful tip: the Suction Cup Universal Magnetic Car Mount can also stick right to your countertop to prop up your phone or laptop. This will give you an excellent hands-free view of any recipes or a great stand for streaming the game live!


For the drinks, Costco is a great place to save some money, plus maybe get lots of variety for the party. You may be able to buy even without a membership.


Game On

Where to watch? Lots of online TV streaming services in the US offer NBC Sports so you can start there.  NBC will also have a live streaming on their website and on their Sports App for free.


For those at work, the app can really be helpful! Arm your smartphone with a privacy screen protector so you can watch discreetly (we suggest the 4-way Privacy for maximum invisibility)… just try to keep the cheers to a minimum. Want to watch on a bigger screen at work? We have privacy screen protectors for the Macbooks too. 😉


The game can get intense so it’ll be great to have party games as a stress-buster! You can play Charades… on your phone! It’s easy to play and even make your own list. A case and screen protector for your phone may come in handy especially how the game’s played.

After The Verdict

When it’s time for your guests to leave, make sure your Designated Driver is sober for the ride. To keep them company, they can have some tunes while driving. A Tech Armor car charger and car mount can help them out here.


For those in Minnesota, you can eat their popular Juicy Lucy or have some Walleye… great for celebratory or maybe comfort food… Then get a beer or two and chicken wings from one of their Sports Bars like Stanley’s Northeast Bar Room or Iron Door Pub. It’s best to keep a power bank with you so your phone doesn’t die out!

CES 2018 Highlights

CES 2018: New tech on the rise

We got lots of surprises (plus a blackout) this year!

After the holidays we’re treated to the annual tech convention in Los Vegas. The bright, shining glimpse into the future of tech that is CES 2018! Big and small game players gathered for another interesting year! Let’s see… what happened?

Smartphone announcements at CES 2018

To start things off, Samsung debuted their mid-range A series. It’s a budget-friendly version of the Galaxy S8 with its infinity display but lower specs. The fingerprint scanner is adjusted to below the camera (hopefully avoiding camera smudges). The series is for worldwide release but no official date yet.

Sony came into CES 2018 full force announcing 3 smartphones during the event. Unveiled were Xperia XA2, Xperia XA2 Ultra and Xperia L2. New feature that all 3 would have is the fingerprint sensor.  

Huawei Mate 10 Pro and the Mate 10 Pro Porsche Design versions are coming to the US! Pre-orders will start on February 4. We also caught a glimpse of the new Alcatel 5, 3 and 1 series. More info on that would be released hopefully by the Mobile World Congress.

Blackberry announced that we’ll get to see the Blackberry Motion in the US, while Asus revealed lots of new tech including the Asus ZenFone Max Plus; a first for the Zenfone line to have the Face Unlock feature. (Price off-contract is $229).

The greatest highlight for the mobile industry was the under-glass fingerprint sensor. The tech comes from Synaptics and was placed on a Vivo phone. Synaptics announced that they are now manufacturing it for public use , so we can expect to see this tech in a lot of future phones that use the OLED display.

Upgrade to laptops and TVs


Could your smartphone double as your laptop’s touchpad? Now there’s a huge possibility. Razer’s Project Linda showed just that by connecting the phone to a laptop shell with USB Type-C. Then Acer put in its bid to win the “world’s thinnest laptop” at 8.98 mm thin with its Swift 7.

From thinnest, now going to the largest. Samsung’s “The Wall” is a 146-in diagonal display TV that definitely attracted lots of attention and LG did not hold back in the TV game with its rollable (yes, like paper rollable) 65-inch 4K OLED television.


Other events

CES trended for a lot of notable reasons. And maybe one-not-so-good reason: #CESblackout. It got dark real fast and real quick and took a few hours to get everything back on track. CES released a statement that the electronic outage was due to heavy rainfall that short circuited one of the event’s transformers.


Google also went all out in pushing its Google Assistant in this year’s CES. Safe to say it was literally everywhere: partnering with third party hardware to a big booth on the event grounds.

It’s just the start of the year and loads of announcements have been made!


Tech Armor will always have your back as new tech arises! We’ll keep you on track with all the reveals… plus keep them protected too. 😉 Head on over to our Amazon Store Front Page or to our website main page to get you started!

Rumored Mobile Devices for 2018

Rumored Mobile Devices for 2018

Lots to expect this year folks!

2018 has just begun but rumors are starting to pile up from top mobile device manufacturers! What awesome gadgets can we expect this year? Read on for the rundown!





The iPhone X was most probably the design refresh everyone was waiting for from the tech giant. This year, we might be seeing 3 versions of that.  Aside from the 5.8-inch screen we’ve seen. There’ll be an iPhone X Plus that can be 6.2-6.5-inches. The third will be a refresh of the iPhone SE with 6.1-inches. Speaking of the iPhone SE2, it may also have wireless charging feature.



The iPad Pros may have less bezels this year with the Touch ID removed in favor of the Face ID. And we might get to see it this summer. There will also be a next gen to the budget-friendly “iPad”… and could become even cheaper at $259 from last year’s $329. Expected release is first half of this year.


Apple Watch

We can also say hello to a different version of the Apple Watch with its design upgrade.  Its launch will be alongside the iPhone in September.



Galaxy S9 and S9+


It’s safe to say 2017 was the year of redemption for Samsung after the whole Note 7 debacle. And it delivered! What will they have in store this year? So far one of the good news rumors for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ is the fingerprint scanner is moved to the center, to avoid smudging the camera. Another is it’ll have a super slow-motion video feature.

The new devices could launch either February or March. Rumors suggest we may get to see the smartphones for the first time at the Mobile World Congress or on Samsung’s own event just like last year’s “Unpacked”.


Note 9


The Galaxy Note 9 may just have what the iPhone X doesn’t— in-screen fingerprint scanner. Other than that it’ll also have it’s own version of facial scanning. This device is rumored to be launched either on August or September.


The company is currently working on 3 phones this year with code names Crosshatch, Albacore and Blueline. One of the three-phones will be a budget-friendly version one similar to the old Nexus phones. While it’s high-end is targeted to compete with the iPhone X. Despite having different screen sizes, it’ll all be powered with the Snapdragon 845.

These devices will reportedly be launched in October.



LG G7 will be released with a different name as LG is rumored to let go of the G branding. A new feature reportedly coming to the device is its own version of the iris scanner.  The new flagship device is rumored to launch this February




The OnePlus 6 will reportedly go for a better facial recognition feature. Similar to the iPhone X. While it will most likely have the same design of edge-to-edge screen as its predecessors. The new flagship phone will reportedly be out on June.

Bonus: Honor 7X and Honor View 10


Both the Honor 7X and Honor View 10 are confirmed to be released in the USA sometime this year. The Honor 7X has an 18:9 aspect ratio and a headphone jack to name a few specs.

The Honor View 10 has a 16MP camera and 3750mAh battery. You can get the Honor 7X for $199 while Honor View 10 will cost under $500. Honor is a brand under Huawei.

Whoa… Lots in store for 2018!


And that may be just the tip of the iceberg folks! Don’t worry as we’ll always have you updated! Of course your devices will be protected too! Head on to the Tech Armor website or our Amazon Storefront for the latest!

Holiday Shopping Tips: getting ready for the rush!

Holiday Shopping Tips: getting ready for the rush!

Especially with Cyber Monday just around the corner too!

It’s that time of the season again folks for all the big sales and discounts! Are you geared up for the rush? Don’t worry, we’ve got tips here that can help you out!


1. Have your Christmas Shopping list ready before Cyber Monday arrives

  • Writing one now might be a good idea. So as soon as all the deals come rolling around, you already know what to buy to score great deals too!

2. Sign up as early as now to newsletters

  • Some companies give out exclusive deals to their mailing list (maybe like us 😉 ) that you might miss out on!

3. If shopping online: keep website open in multiple devices.

  • With lots of people browsing for deals, websites crashing may happen. But there’s a possibility it’s still available on other devices like on mobile or tablet.

4. Another online shopping tip: check online shops at different times

5. If you’re planning to go to the stores: compare prices to get the best deals

  • With several deals trying to get your attention and maybe a hundred people making things crazier in the mall, best to know where to go.

6. One more for store buying: call for availability of the item you want

  • Probably the last thing everyone wants is staring at empty shelves of what you were planning to buy. Some may even let you reserve the item.

7. Prioritize protecting your identity

  • Keep track of all your expenses anywhere and everywhere you go while shopping. Keep watch on any fraudulent charges or even identity theft. (A Privacy screen protector will help you out here)

8. Also, pay with a credit card

  • Should someone steal your credit card info and use it, you’d have zero liability on those charges… check the terms and conditions with your cardholder to keep you protected!

9. A little heads up for the Tech fans: this might be a great time to buy an iPhone or TV!

10. Track and save order confirmations

  • Save it online and offline if you can! It can help you track down with your expenses (especially when your credit card bill knocks on your door) plus for exchange purposes too.


There you have it! We hope all this info help you out at one of the busiest times of the year!


As always, Tech Armor will always have your back! Plus make sure your trusty sidekick for the holidays (aka your phone) is armed and ready!

Google Launch 2017: New Google Pixel 2 phones and more!

Google Launch 2017: New Google Pixel 2 phones and more!

They had a lot under their sleeve to reveal! 😉

Google did not hold back with all the announcements it had October 4 at the San Francisco Jazz Center! After lots of leaks and speculations, they finally launched the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL! And there’s even more new tech you might wanna check out.

First up: the new Google Phones!

One of the immediate differences is seen in the screen structure:


  • The Google Pixel 2 has a 5.0-inch OLED display and a 16:9 aspect ratio.
  • The Pixel 2 XL has 6.0-inch P-OLED display with a 18:9 aspect ratio. The larger phone ironically has slimmer bezels around the screen compared to its small counterpart.


The Pixel 2 also is powered a 2,700 mAh battery, while the Pixel 2 XL boasts a 3,520 mAh cell. The available colors for the Pixel 2 are Just Black, Clearly White, Kinda Blue and Black and White (the Pixel 2 XL is only Just Black and Black and White).


While most of the interior specs are the same for both phones. Some of which are:

The devices are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of Ram and the latest version of Android Oreo out of the box. They’re also DayDream/augmented reality Ready. You can also choose from either 64GB or 128GB of storage.


Sadly, no headphone jacks on this one folks. You’d have to choose between listening to music or charging the phone.


The bright side is the Google Pixel camera continues to be on top of the DxOMark scoring a 98, beating current Apple and Samsung flagships both scoring a 94. One of the newest features you can check out is squeezing the sides of the device to launch Google Assistant. The phone will also come with the Quick Switch Adapter to make transferring data easier from your old phone to your chosen Pixel 2. Oh and this is how they showed it in the event:

Pretty interesting, right? 😉


What else did Google announce?


Google announced a whole lot in its conference! Several of the other announcements are:

  • Google Pixelbook as a “four in one convertible”
  • Pixelbook Pen to complement the new Pixelbook
  • Google Home Max, the tech-giant’s answer to Apple’s Homepod,
  • Google Home Mini, smaller/donut-sized version of the Max
  • DayDream VR headset
  • Google Pixel Buds (notable feature is its live translation)
  • Google Clips

Awesome! But how much for the new Pixel phones again?


The price for the Pixel 2 starts at $649 while for the Pixel 2 XL starts at $849.


Almost $1,000?! That price is no joke.


Unfortunately, there seems to be no stopping the rising price for any new phone on the market! 🙁 Tech Armor totally understands how investing on a great phone is important nowadays. And just how much it can give a dent to your wallet.


That’s why we make sure that you get premium quality phone accessories at a fraction of your device’s price. A clear win-win! 😉


We are definitely protecting the new Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL! Stay tuned as we give more updates on our upcoming screen protectors for it!

iPhone 8 / 8 Plus: Reviews are in!

iPhone 8 / 8 Plus: Reviews are in!

We look at the reviews and even drop tests on the new iPhones!

It’s been just a couple weeks since the release and lots of reviews for the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are out! Are you planning on getting one or waiting for the iPhone X ? We’ve got an overview of info to help you get started!

What’s great with the 8?

One of the immediately noticeable things is it’s cleaner looking thanks to a glass cover in the front and over the back – giving it a premium glossy look.

That’s about it for the exterior… the rest of the upgrades are mostly found internally. The iPhone 8 contains tweaks and improvements from the iPhone 7 and making it future proof. Same with the iPhone 8 Plus.

Trusted Reviews also comments how powerful the A11 Bionic chip is, which is more powerful than the current Qualcomm high-end Snapdragon chips out there. This is found both in the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, positively affecting its performances.

Another awesome perk you get from both phones is found in the camera. reviews that the new camera and chip combined made everything faster and more efficientIf you go for the iPhone 8 Plus, it boasts Portrait Lighting, so your photos are on point!

Both devices are also going big with Augmented Reality combined with iOS 11. But with PC Mag’s experience, better to go with the iPhone 8 Plus for this perk. Overall, this is a safe choice as it’s familiar compared to the upcoming iPhone X.

What’s not to like in these devices?

Most people agree that both phones look quite old fashioned especially since the design has been used for too long (4 generations already). This might be a deal breaker for some people.

Having glass in front and at the back has major cons too. TechAdvisor says it will probably slowly slide off if placed in an uneven surface. While Wired also reviews that just after few days use they already saw a few scratches while using it without any case or such. (Side note: who DOESN’T put a case on their phones these days???)


Drop tests on iPhone 8  and iPhone 8 Plus show in one way or another, the glass material (either front or back…or both really) may crack if the devices fall.

Both phones still do not have the headphone jack and both are considered expensive. The starting price is $699 for the iPhone 8 and $799 for the iPhone 8 Plus.

Speaking of expensive, the glass back is also more expensive to replace than the front one.


Sold with getting either of these devices? But those drop tests though…


It’s all cool as we’ve got your back! 😉 Our screen protectors and cases are good to go for either phone so you’ve got nothing to worry about. We’ve even been featured as one of the best screen protectors for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus! And also on 9to5toysGlass backs may be back on the iPhone but it never the cracks with Tech Armor! 😉

Fitbit Charge 2: great buy?

Fitbit Charge 2: great buy?

Best way to shoot for a healthier lifestyle?

With the rise of awesome smartphones, comes the cool wearables and smartwatches too. One of the greatest pros of having one is the health benefits it can give. Did the Fitbit Charge 2 catch your attention? Looking to get yours? Get more info below!


It’s definitely considered as an upgrade from its predecessor. The display is four times larger, which is a huge plus— you get to see more info in just one glance. You can also customize the comfier rubber straps from the following styles: Classic, Luxe leather and their Special Editions. Making it more fashionable.

And choose from 3 sizes: small, large and XL.

The device can also automatically track if you’re exercising so you’ll continue to be in the zone.

One great highlight for the Fitbit Charge 2 is the PurePulse Heart Rate tracking technology without having to wear a chest strap. US Consumer Reports backed up the device’s reasonable level of heart-rate accuracy.


While a great firstthe Guided Breathing feature helps improve your condition—releasing stress or for cooling down.

Another awesome new feature is the VO2 Max that measures your heart rate based on your age and gender.

All standard fitness tracking data are also present and considered correct in the app. The app is also in easy to read format. Overall a solid successor fitness tracker.


It’s water resistant but not waterproof folks. It’s not also recommended by Fitbit to use while in the shower.

Interacting with the OLED display may also mean jabbing or poking it since it uses the accelerometer to tell when you’re hitting it since it’s not touch screen.  


How much is it?


The price starts at $149.95, so are you totally sold on buying one? Great! With that bigger screen comes greater responsibility to protect it – with the poking included too. Good thing Tech Armor has your back! 😉 We’ve got the HD Clear Screen Protector in 2-pack! You could probably use the other one as spare or share with a fellow-Fitbit Charge 2 user!


Speaking of fitness, make sure to get moving too! Achieve a lifetime of movement with our friends from Motus EdgeStretch and warm-up with their Resistance Bands, while giving yourself extra protection with their Compression Sleeves!  

Decided to try Crossfit? They got a Starter Kit for that!


As always, Tech Armor has you covered! 😉

OnePlus 5: worth buying?

OnePlus 5: worth buying?

Could this be your new phone?

Still checking the phone market to see which would be the best for you? If you’re not onboard with the latest Apple phones, then the OnePlus 5 might just be the one! We’ve got some reviews and info that might help you out!


The OnePlus 5 is one speedy and minimalist phone. Jumping in and out of apps are lightning quick and efficient. It’s considered as the fastest phone this reviewer used. The company did not hold back as the phone is powered with the latest Snapdragon 835. Plus with the Ardeno 540 GPU for a great gaming experience.

Old-fashioned but not your typical 1080p 5.5-inch AMOLED panel with 16:9 resolution. It has vibrant colors and can get very bright that you can check your phone even under the sunlight.

It’s a first for the company to manufacture a phone that’s rocking the dual-lens camera. The main camera is 16MP with super-wide aperture of f/1.7. The other is the 20MP telephoto lens with aperture of f/2.6. These cameras are especially useful for Portrait Mode and shooting faraway subjects.

For gamers, the Gaming Do Not Disturb mode would be a great plus where you can turn off all notifications while playing. For everyone who’s missing the 3.5mm headphone jack on recent iPhones… this one has it!

While its Oxygen OS has lots of customizable perks like the notification shade easily customizable.


No folks this phone is still not waterproof like other phones today. So best to keep it away from bodies of water.

The OnePlus 5 also has no expandable memory. So you might have to make a second check on which you’d choose: the 64GB or 128GB storage?

Hardware (and partly software) might kind of be reminiscent of other phones like Apple and Oppo, if this can be a deal breaker for you.

The price may be neutral ground starting at $479, which is still quite cheaper than Apple’s iPhones or Samsung’s Galaxy 8/8Plus or Note 8. Not a bad phone…for that price too! Looking to purchase one? Before it runs out in the wild, it”s best to keep the screen safe from drops and scratches!

Tech Armor has you covered with our Edge-to-Edge glass Ballistic Glass Screen Protector! 😉
