I've never been a fan of rugged cases for my smartphone. They are thick, bulky, and generally are hard to put on and take off, as well as trap dirt and lint. But that's just not the "case" with UAG. (See what I did there?) Urban Armour Gear makes some rather nice rugged cases for your top end smartphones. They look to hold up well to regular drops while keeping the phones physically in tact.

What's the first thing I should say about the LG V20? It's a big phone. It has a massive screen! In fact its a 5.7" Quad HD screen. You can get a lot done with a screen that big. Which is good. It's also an LCD screen, which means it shines a little bit brighter than LED, so in the dim light, it has some light bleed along the side. Its got an extra two inches of screen across the top. This two inches are used to access quick toggles, notifications, the time. You can in even personalize it with font and letters. On the top of mine I wrote "The Android Anthem".
Every new phone has a few gimmicks. Sometimes, a new phone will have more than one. Not all of these gimmicks are brand new. The LG G6 brings a few of it's own to the table. Here is a short list of my 5 favorite things about the LG G6. Feel free to share!

My whole family of four are big Nintendo fans. Up until Minecraft, my wife and I had never purchased any other system other than a Super NES and a Nintendo Wii. Minecraft is the one and only reason why I picked up a used Xbox 360 for the kids. I ended up playing it just as much too though. Needless to say, we do not see ourselves as "gamers".
When I first saw the Nintendo Switch trailer on YouTube in October 2016, I couldn't wait to share it with the rest of the family. Every one of us gathered around the TV to watch a 3 and a half minute teaser trailer, and we watched it several times. But this teaser trailer came out a little over 4 months ago. I knew there was a "pre-order" date, but it was in the middle of the night on the Eastern seaboard and I haven't made up my mind to spend the money. On January 13th though, the pre-orders were gone like yesterday is gone. The way I saw it, i had a month and a half left to make up my mind.

This is a brand new device that hasn't even hit the market yet. Still in a very successful Indiegogo campaign, the Insta360 Air is a 360 degree panoramic camera that attaches directly to your smartphone's USB port.
This cool little camera is smaller than a golf ball and still fits nicely in your pocket. I'm probably going to have a lot of fun reviewing this bad boy. But before we can get started, we need to take a look and see whats all involved with this hardware and it's packaging. Now begins, the unboxing of the Insta360 Air Panoramic Camera.

With the whole left behind by the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, the LG V20 couldn't have come at a better time. The footprint is similar and it has some extra options no one else had (at the time). Not all of it's internals are as "new" as could be, but from what I've seen from other phones, it shouldn't have any problem keeping up with the "task" at hand.
This video was recorded in November 2016. Due to some bittersweet personal circumstances, I'm just now getting it uploaded. Sorry for the delay. But before we can review a phone, we have to do a ceremonious unboxing video. Thanks to my partners at Verizon, here it is, the unboxing of the LG V20.
