That’s why we’ve put together this list of best LG V30 cases, aimed at helping you find the right look and feel for your device. The V30 isn’t available for pre-order yet, so case options are limited. We’ll update this list with more choices LG opens up orders.

The Tauri Wallet Leather Case is designed for those who want a slightly classier look to their phone. Not only does it offer a leather protective barrier, but it also includes a number of slots for things like credit cards — meaning you can leave the traditional wallet at home. There’s even a space for cash. It’ll set you back $10 in total, which is pretty reasonable.

Looking to protect your phone at all costs, no matter the added bulk? This case is designed to be as rugged as possible, while still providing access to the phone’s ports, buttons, and so on. It’s also great for those who prefer having their phone in a belt-mounted holster rather than in their pocket. It’s a little pricier than some of the other cases, but it’s well worth the extra protection.

The LG V30 is a great-looking phone, and you might not want to cover up that sexy look. Getting a clear case is the best of both worlds — it’ll keep your phone nice and safe, while still allowing you to show off the phone’s design. The case offers a dual-layer design for shock absorption, and Lumion boasts “military grade level protection” as it meets MIL STD 810F-516 certification. In other words, it’s a pretty tough case.

There’s also a little kickstand you can fold out to place your phone on the table. Like other cases, it has a cutout for things like the camera and fingerprint scanner, and it looks quite good too.

The best ZTE Axon 30 Ultra cases and covers
ZTE Axon 30 Ultra in hand

ZTE may not be the word on everyone's lips where high-end flagship smartphones are concerned, but the ZTE Axon 30 Ultra is a strong reason why you can't dismiss the company so easily. Absent for a while due to U.S. government crackdowns, ZTE has come roaring back with an excellent $749 smartphone. It lacks 5G in the U.S. and some of the features you might get with competitors, like wireless charging and water resistance, but even with those concessions, it's still a great smartphone.

Like any expensive device, you're going to want to keep it safe. A protective case is a must these days, and a good one will keep your valuable phone protected from dirt, scratches, bumps, and more -- and some even add extra features, like kickstands or wallet functions. Here are some of the best ZTE Axon 30 Ultra cases and covers.

Android 11 update: Here’s when your phone is getting new software
Google Pixel 4a Front

Android 11 is here. The new mobile operating system isn't necessarily as groundbreaking as some previous updates, but it still brings several new privacy features, as well as some visual changes that should make accessing things like smart home devices a whole lot easier.

Of course, you might be wondering exactly when your phone is getting Android 11. The good news is that Android 11 is coming to more devices week by week. The bad news is that even months after it debuted, some phones still haven't received the update or only have early betas available. Still, some big names have rolled out the update to popular models — hopefully including the one in your hand.

Samsung DeX is arguably the best way to get a desktop-like experience from a phone. The platform was first released with the Galaxy S8 series as a way to use your phone as the brains for a computer-like interface, and since then it has grown into a sleek, well-rounded interface that you can use for productivity and entertainment tasks alike.

DeX is now a few years old, and Samsung has built loads of great features into it. Interested in learning more about it for yourself? Here are seven of the best features Samsung DeX has to offer.
Connect however you want
Before diving into actually using DeX, you'll need to connect it to a monitor or display. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways you can do so. The easiest way is perhaps to simply get an HDMI to USB-C cable and plug it into your phone. You don't need to use a first-party cable to do so -- I used an Amazon adapter and a standard HDMI cable, and it worked just fine.
