Google fixed some of the complaints that surrounded the launch of the Nexus 6, but it still isn’t selling the Nexus phone I would want to buy. More →
Earlier this week, I published my iPhone 6s review. I covered the good and the bad — though there was far more good than bad — and I did my best to discuss all of the key new features on this year’s iPhone. Judging by all of the positive feedback I’ve received so far, I was pretty thorough.
