HTC threw a big coming out party for its new HTC 10 Android smartphone, which I am still calling the best Android phone of 2016. I was on hand at the event, and in this episode I bring you a look at what went down at Canoe Studios in Chelsea.
HTC brought in a bunch of journalists, bloggers, YouTubers, and tech influencers to check out the new HTC 10 smartphone, learn about all of its features, enjoy some great food and music, and pick up our review units of the device. During the event I was also able to sit down with HTC's Nigel Newby-House for a one-on-one interview, and played with the HTC Vive as well.

The HP EliteBook Folio G1 is a slim ultrabook laptop that aims to take on the Apple MacBook with an optional 4K display and dual USB-C ports. I chat with HP about the new EliteBook Folio G1 in this interview to get the details on what went into making this device special.
As you'll see, aside from the 4K UHD panel and the two USB-C ports (one of which supports Thunderbolt 3,) you also get premium Bang & Olufsen speakers, and a 12.4mm thin body with the 12-inch display. The hinge also goes to a full 180 degrees, and it's all powered by second-generation Intel Core M processors.

The LG G5 is one of the most exciting smartphone releases of 2016. Introduced at Mobile World Congress, LG has switched up its strategy by giving the G5 a bunch of modular functionality. The battery can be quickly removed, and replaced with a better camera add-on with the LG Cam Plus, improved audio with the LG Hi-Fi Plus, and more.
Another big feature on the LG G5 is the dual rear cameras. You get a 16 megapixel camera alongside an 8 megapixel wide angle camera with a 135 degree field of view. The 5.3-inch display features always-on technology, so you can quickly glance at it and see the time, date, and any notifications without having to touch the phone.
The LG G5 ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which means that the software is just as up to date as the hardware experience. You can pick up the LG G5 and Friends modules starting in April (no solid LG G5 release date has been provided just yet.)
