Beats Powerbeats Pro review: Beat it, AirPods

By Lily Katz

Beats Powerbeats Pro earbuds on a book.

The Powerbeats Pro have the same over-ear hook design as the standard Powerbeats, but they ditch the wire connecting them.

Apple and Beats fans can finally marvel at a great pair of true wireless earbuds. While these are $100 more than the AirPods, they sound significantly better and provide a more stable fit. If you’re on the fence, there are plenty of reasons to take the plunge and invest in Beats.

Read the in-depth review by SoundGuys

What are the Beats Powerbeats Pro like?

The charging case is larger than the AirPods’ and charges via a Lightning cable.

These are how true wireless earbuds should have been designed from the start. The unobtrusive ear hooks take the pressure off the ear canal for a more balanced, stable fit. Additionally, the dedicated nozzles make these sound infinitely better than the AirPods.

Battery life is impeccable: these provide just under 11 hours of playback on a single charge.

The earbuds sport a minimalist design and come in four …read more

How to change the default browser in Windows 10

By Kevin Parrish

Windows 10 access Settings

Microsoft introduced a new integrated browser with the launch of Windows 10: Microsoft Edge. It’s billed to be lightweight and fast, but many PC owners may not like having an integrated browser forced in their faces. Choice is the key to happiness. We show you how to change the default browser in Windows 10.

Typically, when you install a new browser, it immediately requests you to set it as the default. That’s not ideal in the initial trial-and-error mode where you want to test-drive a browser before making a lifelong commitment. Our guide shows you how to manually set the default browser through the Settings and from within five popular web browsers.

This guide is based on Windows 10 version 1809 (October 2018 Update).

From the Settings app

1. Click Start and select the “gear” icon on the Start Menu. This opens the Settings app.

Windows 10 Settings Apps

2. Select Apps.

Spotify adds sleep timers to its Android app

By Team AA

Spotify update - Spotify logo on a phone

Seemingly out of nowhere, Spotify has added a sleep timer to its Android app (via Android Police). A similar feature has been available for iOS users for quite some time, so its addition is welcome to us who use Google’s mobile operating system.

Editor’s Pick

10 best free music apps for Android

Finding free music is a lot easier than it used to be. No longer is piracy the easiest way. These days, you can find pretty much any song you want using just a few apps. …

To access Spotify’s sleep timers, first start playing a song — you will need the Now Playing page to be showing. From there, tap on the overflow menu button (three dots) in the top right corner. Lastly, scroll down the list and locate the Sleep timer option. You can now choose to pause the music app after one of the set periods of time or after the end of the given track.

Follow the below screenshots if you get lost.

We asked, you told us: Most are worried about Huawei’s future

By Justin Duino

huawei p30 pro vs huawei mate 20 pro side by side 1 held in hand

It has now been over a week since Huawei was added to the U.S. government’s Entity List. Each day since has brought with it more bad news for the Chinese telecom.

So we decided to ask you if you believe Huawei is in trouble. Here’s what you had to say.

Do you think Huawei could survive without Android?


Averaging out the over 36 thousand votes across Android Authority’s website, Twitter, and Facebook, a majority of those who participated in this week’s poll are worried about Huawei’s future. Although the margins are thin, the comment section and responses are full of back and forth on why the company might or might not survive this ever-growing ordeal.

For now, it’s still unclear which side is right. Huawei has been granted a limited 90-day license that’s good through August. During that period, the company can remain in business with U.S.-owned companies. If the consent isn’t extended or if Huawei isn’t removed from the Entity List through trade war discussions with China, it would have to roll out its custom operating system and find new (non-U.S.) business partners …read more

5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week! – Android Apps Weekly

By Joe Hindy

A screenshot of Pokemon Rumble Rush for Android Apps Weekly 294

Welcome to the 294th edition of Android Apps Weekly! Here are the big headlines from the last week:

  • We received more details on the upcoming Call of Duty mobile game this week. The big news is a battle royale mode similar to Fortnite or PUBG Mobile. It’ll feature 100 players with single, double, and four-person playlists currently in testing. It should also have zombies, vehicles, and periodic drop crates.
  • Noodlecake Studios next game is available for pre-registration right now. The game should be a fun and accessible runner-style game. You play as a fruit and you bounce down the side of a mountain. The game features swipe controls, colorful graphics, and hundreds of challenges. It should launch sooner rather than later.
  • League of Legends is apparently on its way to mobile and no, it’s not Arena of Valor. Riot Games and Tencent have worked on the game for over a year. However, it probably isn’t coming in 2019 due to delays and potential tensions between Riot Games and Tencent about how to monetize the game.
  • Microsoft announced Minecraft Earth this week. It’s an AR Minecraft game in the same vein as games like Pokemon Go, Jurassic World Alive, and …read more

I’m tired of giving up battery life for a reasonably sized phone

By Jimmy Westenberg

google pixel 3 battery screen

Opinion post by
Jimmy Westenberg

Right now, my Google Pixel 3 is sitting on my desk in its natural habitat: on the Pixel Stand. It lives there now — not because I want it to, but because I can’t get away with using it as my main smartphone any longer. The battery life is just too poor.

Surprise, surprise, right? Not only did we mention this in our full Pixel 3 review, but countless others did too. I do enjoy wireless charging, but that doesn’t make up for the 2.5-3 hours of screen-on time I’m getting every day. That’s half of what other major flagships offer, and around an hour or two shy of what my Pixel 2 XL gets running the Android Q beta.

That’s right, a phone with beta software (albeit with a bigger battery) is getting more longevity out of a charge than a phone running stable software. It’s not that I dislike the Pixel 2 XL — it’s actually one of my favorite phones of all time — I’m just getting a little worn out with big phones.

Every phone is big now. Even the small phones offer more than enough screen real estate …read more
