Find the best speakers to bring that Chrome-powered computer alive
As convenient, practical, lightweight, and even surprisingly robust as Chromebooks and Chromeboxes are, not to mention cheap, they’re not typically known for speaker quality. In fact, that could be said for most laptops, which means you might need to invest in something that can upgrade that sound. Headphones and earbuds work well, but you might not want to spend hours with your ears covered— at least not at home or in your office.
Keep your Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet safe from damage
The Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet could be the perfect device for daily entertainment for all content consumers and media lovers. You can basically toss it in your bag and take it anywhere for entertainment on-the-go. While the device's build is durable enough to withstand strain or accidental drops, it's still not sturdy enough. Thankfully, a suitable case can minimize damage should your tablet take a tumble.
These smart speakers offer premium sound coupled with the advanced functionality of Amazon's Alexa
Amazon's Alexa is one of the most popular smart voice assistants. It works on many devices but truly shines when integrated into a fantastic smart speaker. Whether you want to quickly check the weather, play your favorite song, set a timer, or call a friend, Alexa can do it. You can also use your Alexa-enabled speaker to control any other smart devices connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
Affordable smartphones need love and protection too
Samsung may be primarily known in the smartphone world for cutting-edge flagships such as the Galaxy S22 Ultra, but the company also makes a ton of devices catering to the mid-range and entry-level segments. One such device is the Galaxy A03s, which is among the best budget Android phones available in the market right now.
Keep your shiny new phone clean and shatter-free with a sturdy screen protector
The Samsung Galaxy S22 may be the "baby S22" with its 6.06-inch screen, but that screen still needs protection from the harsh, unforgiving concrete jungle you carry it out into. Because the S22 is a flat display rather than curved like the S22 Ultra, reliable tempered glass screen protectors are easier to come by. With so many to choose from, we've built a list of options worth considering.
There are plenty of options at plenty of price points
Android has a reputation for being less than ideal on tablets ("There are no apps!" is the most common complaint). While it's true that iPadOS enjoys access to more apps that are better optimized for big screens, the best Android tablets themselves are often excellent pieces of hardware. We're hopeful Google's recent efforts will improve the software side.
Lose yourself in a brand new world
Settling down with an RPG for Android is the perfect way to end a long day.

Your ears deserve the best, so buy them a new pair of earbuds
The best wireless earbuds, like the best Android phones, have come a long way in the last five years. No longer do you have to spend hundreds and hundreds in order to get passable audio or battery life measures in hours rather than minutes.

The Amazon Kindle has revolutionized e-readers and comes in a few versions, ranging from a basic model to one equipped with an impressive feature set
It's easy to forget that Amazon started exclusively by selling books. Reflecting on that, it's no surprise that Amazon's Kindle tablet and the associated app and subscription service remain today's most effective e-reader platform. There aren't many models to choose from, but the existing versions are very different in some fundamental ways. Regardless, these e-readers are a great way to carry your books everywhere or even from your local library.
When you need a reliable but affordable tablet, Amazon's Fire HD lineup is ready and waiting
Amazon's Fire tablet lineup is excellent if you want a nice and affordable tablet for content consumption, browsing the web, or reading. None of the Amazon tablets cost as much as an iPad or premium Android tablets but still offer a decent performance. In addition, the company's portfolio has tablets in small, medium, and large screen sizes and even includes kids-specific versions. But with so much choice, it can be tricky to pick the right tablet. So we have rounded up the best Amazon Fire tablets you can buy today.

The Kindle Oasis is Amazon's most premium eReader, offering exclusive features, the best screen, and a unique design that makes one-handed reading more comfortable. In fact, it's one of the best Kindles you can buy. When spending this much on a Kindle, you'll want to ensure it's protected against drops, knocks, or any other damage that might threaten it. That's what we've collected the best cases for the Oasis, from sturdy protective cases to stylish covers that make your Kindle stand out.

Your Galaxy S22+ has a nice large screen that needs protecting against nice large cracks
Nothing will turn your $1000 flagship into a paperweight faster than a shattered touchscreen. This is why your Galaxy S22+ deserves the best screen protector you can get for it. While tempered glass offers the best protection against shatters and cracks, it usually doesn't play nice with fingerprint scanners.
