Meet the BLU F91 5G, the company's first 5G budget smartphone. For $249, the F91 5G features a massive 5,000mAh battery with support for wireless charging, 6.8-inch Full HD+ display, quad camera system and octa-core processor with 128GB storage and 8GB RAM. What's not great to see, however, is the fact that it's only available for GSM carriers (not including AT&T or Cricket) and it comes running Android 11 with an outdated security patch. Do you think the BLU F91 5G is worth it?

We review the DBPower 1080P Wi-Fi projector to help you determine if it's worth the $200-300 asking price. What we've found is that it features an ample number of ports for connecting a Roku and/or gaming console, supports USB Flash Drives and AirPlay Screen Mirroring, and can cast content at up to 300-inches. If you plan on using it in a well-lit room, or a room without the ability to control the lighting, you may be disappointed in picture quality. However, in dark environments it performs well and provides an experience many TVs simply cannot offer.

Apple doesn't make the best keyboard case for the iPad Pro; Logitech does. It's called the Logitech Combo Touch Keyboard Case and not only is it cheaper than Apple's Smart Keyboard, but it features backlit keys, a rigid kickstand, and all-around protection for the iPad Pro. If you're like me and need a keyboard to make your iPad useable, you're going to want to look into this Logitech keyboard.

There's also a total of four camera sensors and a massive 6.67-inch AMOLED FHD+ display. How do you think the 20 Pro 5G stacks up against the competition?
