Sony Xperia 5 review: The next evolution of the XZ1/XZ2 Compact line, and I love it

…and why it replaced the Pixel 3A in my pocket

I have to share this story before I start, which explains why I gave Sony the next chance to be my daily driver phone:

When my son’s old Nexus 5X broke earlier this year, I decided to give him my old Xperia XA2 phone. He is only 13 and forgetful, and of course managed to lose track of the phone awhile back. We looked everywhere for this phone, trying to call his number. It would continue to ring for three days; it did not start going to voicemail, indicating the phone had died. In an of itself this was already a decent achievement of great standby battery life.

Rekt! Is An Adorable Multiplayer Party Racer For Nintendo Switch and You Should Buy It Right Now

It’s currently on sale for $3, but well worth its normal asking price of $6

I have to admit, I had recently gotten leery of sticking my neck out to buy what looked to be decent, non-AAA games on the Switch from a developer I’d never heard of for a few bucks.

At $10 per box it was clearly not in the “too good to be true” category, but I was still apprehensive…

Well I did my research and it seemed like something I wanted to try, so off to the Magic Spoon website I went to get the variety pack. The ordering process was smooth, but at this point in my life …

Spectrum’s 10 channel ‘TV Choice’ is the Real Deal (if you can get it)

  1. Click here to skip my Doofenshmirtz-level backstory and right to the review

Let’s be clear: there is no better feeling than the day you break up with your Internet/TV/Phone provider and cut the cord.  Every cord cutter knows what their breaking point was.  Mine came when I called Verizon this summer to try and get a better price than the $120+ I was paying for (to be honest, decently fast and pretty reliable) FiOS Internet along with an assortment of cable channels we almost never used. But I started to wonder more and more as the bills came rolling in: is that reliability worth such a mark-up, when Verizon was recently offering Internet-only plans for $40 for new customers (and …

For example, if you find yourself using lots of AA batteries, why not be a little greener and get a pack of rechargeable AA batteries with charger (affiliate link), or just the batteries (affiliate link) if you already have a charger. I personally use and highly recommend Amazon's batteries.
