Keep up with the times
Times have changed, and being out on the road is no longer as simple as it used to be.Staying connected-whether with the office for work, with loved ones back at home, or to the Internet in general-is now something
“Okay, Google.”
A recent study showed that Metro Manila residents spend over an hour a day on average stuck in traffic. That is time that could be better spent doing...well, anything else other than sitting in gridlock. Like catching up on answering e-
About time
Having a hard time booking a ride lately? We know how it feels. Taking into account the Christmas season rush, countless year-ender parties, and the limited number of drivers available, we're not exactly surprised either.Thankfully, this might be
It’s as fast as its namesake
Earlier this month, we reported that a new McLaren-branded smartphone, designed by the carmaker in collaboration with OnePlus, was set to be launched soon. Now, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition has been unveiled, and its specs are as remarkable as that
A McLaren-branded phone has got to be pretty fast, after all
Collaborations between tech companies and luxury car manufacturers aren't new. Lamborghini has already come out with a smartphone, as have Porsche and Ferrari. Usually, these fade into obscurity either because they're crazy-expensive or just not any good.Now, OnePlus
Trying out the Fitbit Ionic
Contrary to what some might think, cars are not the only thing we review in Top Gear. Through the years we've reviewed dashcams, books (about motoring), and the occasional lifestyle gadget. One of the latter arrived in our office recently, and,
Designed for bikers
The mobile revolution has changed the way we motorcyclists navigate on our bikes. Over the years, we have evolved from having to carry around paper maps and knowing how to use them, to spending for pricey dedicated GPS units and mounted smartphones.
Madness? Or genius?
If you're anything like us, then you can't imagine life without your smartphone. Our days are spent creating content online, so even when we're not on our computers we're synced to our phones trying to find out what'
Built for the outdoors
Off-road vehicles, like the Land Rover Discovery, are built to endure whatever Mother Nature can throw at them. Sticks and stones are no big deal for these behemoths. Smartphones, which most people buy screen protectors and cases for before they even
Level up your IG game
Okay, so you're a gearhead with a smartphone. You're always finding yourself in situations where you're exposed to all kinds of interesting vehicles, whether they be cars, trucks or motorcycles. If you've been planning to put up an

A solid phone mount
Scrolling through your phone while driving is a big no-no. In the age of connectivity though, navigation apps like Waze are useful (and sometimes necessary) for getting around. Enter phone mounts. Nowadays, there are hundreds you can choose from--from premium
It doesn’t scrimp on features
The Hyundais we test lately are usually turbocharged, diesel-powered, or basically come with four doors. This Korean machine that arrived in our office is a little different. It has a 5.5-inch tempered glass screen, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of

These days, our smartphone use is heavily linked to our driving. Whether you use your phone to navigate the roads or to listen to music, connectivity is a big thing for today's automotive consumers. To raise the industry standard, Ford and
And it won’t explode
For something that has possible legal limitations regarding in-car use, the smartphone has become an essential motoring tool. We use it to navigate our traffic-filled streets, make calls on the road (using a hands-free headset), and call for an
And it's already funded on Kickstarter
Smartphone mounts have come a very long way over the past few years...well, for the most part at least. You can still opt for cheap, flimsy, hastily-made knock-offs if you're willing to spend several frustrating minutes pulling your
Those that use the 3.5mm audio jack
If you notice some of your officemates having bleary eyes today, that's because they probably stayed up late watching the launch of Apple's iPhone 7 that started at 1am this morning. What nerds, huh. (yawn)As usual, social media lit
