Google Pixel Review + 15 Tips and Tricks

The Google Pixel has topped my list of the BEST phone of 2017. We have seen a lot of new flagship phones this year, but after using the Google Pixel for a month, this is one I didn't want to give back to Verizon. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has a much sexier design, but the Pixel has it beat hands-down in how fast it is, the camera is incredible, and Google Assistant is well on it's way to beating Apple's Siri. 

When using a new phone, it's also really helpful to have some good tips and tricks to get you start. I've also got you covered there with this video:

iPhone 7 Review from an Android Fangirl

After not having an iPhone in my hands for four years, Verizon asked if I would like to try out the iPhone 7. I immediately jumped at the opportunity as normally, I'm just trying a friends new iPhone for a couple of minutes and then handing it back. 

While flirting with the iPhone 7 for a month, I was able to decide whether or not Apple could win my heart away from Android... Watch the video to find out more of what happens! 

Plus, if you are looking for cool iPhone 7 cases, I tried some of those out as well! Read about those here.

Best iPhone 7 Case Options

While the iPhone 7 is a beautiful phone, I'm still someone who puts a case on to help protect it. I hate covering up the slim and sleek design, but dropping the phone and cracking the screen is much worse! 

When Verizon sent me the iPhone 7 to try out (watch the video here), they also sent a selection of cases to test out as well. This variety proves how different cases can be, so with this selection, you are sure to find one that fits your lifestyle!
