On The Bleeding Edge: Bleeding Edge TV 579: HP EliteBook Folio G1 hands-on

If you’ve been wanting to pick up the Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 edge, but were worried about carrying around a phone that’s covered on the front and back by glass and how easy it might be to shatter, then you’re gonna wanna pay attention to this episode, as I’ll be giving you a look at the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active - a no-compromises version of the Galaxy S7 that you’ll have a hell of hard time trying to destroy.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 line is the latest flagship series from Samsung. In my opinion, they’re the best-looking phones that Samsung has ever made…but they’re also the most fragile and slippery due to being encased in curved glass. Each year though, Samsung and AT&T collaborate on a much more rugged version of the Galaxy S smartphone - the Active line. This is the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active.

You can get the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active now.

People have been asking me to show off the Carbon Gray version of the HTC 10, despite all the reviews, unboxing, etc. that I've done of the silver version. So, by popular demand, I bring you an unboxing of the HTC 10 Carbon Gray model. It's the exact same phone as the silver model, just a different color - but you wanted it, so here it is! I still think it's the best Android smartphone released in 2016 so far.

Now let me know, which color do you prefer? Let me know in the comments!

Apple has released the epic new iPad Pro, and in this episode I give you a first look at the large iOS device. As you'll see, the iPad Pro sports a huge (by tablet standards) 12.9-inch Retina display. On the outside, it looks just like another other current-generation iPad, just bigger. On the inside though, there's a lot more power. It's the first iOS device to ship with 4GB, and paired with Apple's A9X processor, this thing is fast. It amounts to an iOS experience that is smooth and fluid, doing everything from navigating the home screen, opening apps, multitasking, and even editing video a breeze. The massive screen immerses you into its world - I know that sounds ridiculous, but it's true. Open up a high-resolution image, video, or game, and you are brought into that place.

You can pick up the iPad Pro for $799 for the 32GB mode, $949 for 128GB, and $1079 for the 128GB model with LTE support. Must-have accessories include the Apple Pencil, and the iPad Pro Keyboard, which connects via the new Smart Connector. Check out the video for the full rundown!

You can order the iPad Pro now.

Apple has eliminated most of the fun from Apple Store iPhone launches! In this episode, I am waiting for the iPhone 6S to launch at the Alderwood Mall Apple Store. Typically, there are hundreds of people all camped out, waiting in line, and generally switching between having a great time and hating life depending on the temperature and the rain. This year? For the vase majority of the night it was 3 people. THREE PEOPLE! I was the third to arrive, getting there at 8:00PM the night before launch - last year by then there were 80 people in line. The next person didn't arrive until about 4:30am - 8.5 hours later. I do finally get my hands on the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, and bring you an unboxing of the device as well.

You can order the new Apple iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus now.
