10 best Valentine’s Day apps for Android in 2023
While the more traditional presents are always nice, certain people on your Valentine’s Day gift list might appreciate something more practical to show your affection and love. Here’s a look at some of the best Valentine’s Day gifts you can get for techies (or maybe you can suggest these gifts to your Valentine to give to you on Thursday?).
Valentine’s Day gifts for the big spender
Sadly, this bundle deal does not include the special McLaren Edition of the OnePlus 6T, but if you really want to show your love and affection for your techie partner on Thursday, you should consider getting this version of the phone. It has 10GB of RAM, 256GB of onboard storage, a special charger that offers a day’s worth of battery use in just 20 minutes, and a sleek black carbon fiber design with an orange trim around the phone. That’s all for the higher, but still reasonable, price of $699.
TCL 65-inch 4K Roku TV
If your Valentine’s Day gift recipient loves to stream movies and TV on their smartphone or their older 1080p TV, but wants something bigger for their living room, you can’t go wrong with this big 65-inch 4K TV from TCL. It not only has great picture quality, thanks to its Dolby Vision high dynamic range (HDR) support, but it has the Roku operating system installed. It’s probably the best smart TV OS there is, with access to nearly all of the major free and premium movie and TV services. It’s available now on Amazon for $999.99.
Valentine’s Day gifts for the average budget
What’s the best Fitbit? We tested dozens, and here are our top 8 picks
Finally, the company’s newest fitness wearable, the Fitbit Charge 3, is being sold for $20 off its normal prices. That means the standard edition costs just $130, while the special edition, which includes Fitbit Pay support, currently costs $150. In addition, if you buy these wearables from Fitbit’s website, you can get free two-day shipping for all orders over $50 if you put in the promo code CUPID at checkout.
Google Home Hub
The Google Home Hub is, quite simply, the best smart display on the market. It’s also a great Valentine’s Day gift idea for anyone who wants to enter the smart home, or just the smart speaker trend. The 7-inch, 1,024 x 600 resolution display, combined with what is basically a Google Home speaker with support for Google Assistant, will allow your Valentine to do things like order flowers with just their voice or learn how to make that perfect romantic dinner for two with access to YouTube. At $149, it’s not the cheapest smart display or smart speaker on the market, but your partner won’t be disappointed with the Google Home Hub.
In addition, Google is holding a special Valentine’s Day hardware sales event where you can save on Pixel phones, Nest Thermostats, Nest Cams, and much more.
If your Valentine has an older television that doesn’t have smart TV support, or if its included smart TV apps are not to your liking, then you simply have to get them a Roku Ultra set-top box. It supports up to 4K video, and like the TCL TV, the Roku OS allows you to get nearly every major streaming video service. It also comes with its own set of earphones, in case your Valentine watches TV at night and doesn’t want to disturb you. It’s perfect for your “Netflix and chill” evenings, and it’s currently available on Amazon for just $85.
As we stated, smart speakers and hubs are becoming more popular, and if your Valentine wants to check out a smart device without a screen, the Amazon Echo is the best one. It will allow your Valentine to use the Alexa digital assistant to order flowers, learn what the best romantic poems are, and much more. Amazon is currently selling the standard Echo for just $69.99 for the Valentine’s Day period, a $30 discount from its normal $99.99 price tag.
In addition, Amazon is holding its own hardware sale event for Valentine’s Day, with big discounts on products like the Echo Plus, Echo Show, Kindle Paperwhite, and much more.
Valentine’s Day gifts for under $50
Miniature Game Arcade Cabinet
For your Valentine who loves classic video games, show them you love them by picking up this tiny game arcade cabinet. Yes, they can have the miniature experience of playing classic video games in a classic 1980’s arcade, but without using any coins. Each of these cabinets costs between $13.85 and $18.59 on Amazon, and you have your choice of Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Galaga, Galaxian, Frogger, or Dig Dug.
Bouqs Valentine’s Day flower bouquet
This next deal is for those folks who just want a more traditional Valentine’s Day offering. Bouqs has a special promotion that will allow you to send a gorgeous bouquet of flowers to your loved one. This deal would normally cost $50, but our special offer cuts that price down by 40 percent, so you can send them a flower arrangement for just $30. Best of all, you can send these flowers to your sweetie in as little as two hours.

Thankfully, 2023 also gave us some absolute stunners, the best of which we’ve ranked alongside the latest phones in this article. Whether you’re looking for performance, camera smarts, or value, our definitive list of the ten best phones has it all. Some of the prices will pleasantly surprise you.
The top phone on this rundown won’t be the ideal phone for everybody so make sure to check out all ten. The best phone for you is out there, depending on what you value most – camera, battery life, design, specs, price, and more to boot come into play.
Samsung and Apple feature here of course, but looking further afield to Android competitors such as OnePlus, Google, Oppo, and Xiaomi could mean you find your ideal pocket partner. Trust us, these phones all deliver – just all a little differently, and that’s a great thing. Good competition means better phones for everyone!Best smartphone 2023
1. Google Pixel 7 – Best for most people
Good value for money
Nice 90Hz screen
Easy to use software
Slow charging speeds
Face Unlock is basic
Best Prices Today:
We think the best phone for most people is the Google Pixel 7. It’s the best Pixel phone yet, and has tons of premium features for the frankly incredible price of $599/£599/€649.
For less than the cost of any iPhone 14 or Galaxy S23 model you get a lovely 6.3in 90Hz OLED display, bright and customisable Android 13 software, a premium glass finish with wireless charging and amazingly good main and ultrawide cameras on the back. That main camera is the best point-and-shoot phone camera on the market, with stunning photos whatever you point it at thanks to the 50Mp sensor and Google’s top level photo processing.
You also get fun software tricks like Magic Eraser to rub out unwanted people or objects from your photos, and other Pixel-exclusive things such as call screening and a call holding feature so you dont have to sit on hold for ages with businesses – though several of these call perks are US-only.
You could opt for the Pixel 7 Pro if you want a bigger screen, better battery life, and an extra optical telephoto zoom lens.

2. iPhone 14 Pro – Best iPhone
Dynamic Island is genuinely great
First iPhone with always-on display
Battery life same as 13 Pro
No fast charging
More expensive in the UK
Best Prices Today:
The regular iPhone 14 is a very minor update over the iPhone 13, so it’s a pleasant surprise that the iPhone 14 Pro is such a leap over its predecessor. Some of the change is only skin deep, but when such a visual overhaul as the Dynamic Island makes its debut, it’s hard not to notice.
Apple has shrunk its famous screen notch into a pill and circular shape below the top bezel but filled in the blank space with black pixels, and then used animations to have notifications and updates from apps originate from the space, creating a use for the cut outs now seen for cameras on most phone screens. It is very clever, and means you can see what music playing, timers, weather and more constantly at the top of the screen without having to hop into the app.
The phone’s cameras are also exceptionally good, with the first 48Mp sensor on an iPhone allowing for 2x zoom cropping in addition to the 3x telephoto lens and a capable ultrawide. Apple has also finally introduced an always-on display that simply dims your lock screen and pleasingly doesn’t affect battery life, in our testing at least. It’s not a huge upgrade on the 13 Pro but if your phone is three or four years old this iPhone will feel lightyears into the future.

3. Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra – The phone with everything
Very good cameras
Excellent battery life
Lovely premium object
Slow 45W charging
Poor selfie camera
Huge premium object
Best Prices Today:
If you want the phone on the market with the most features possible, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is it. It’s a big, expensive phone but you get every possible feature you could want in a smartphone in 2023 with incredibly good triple cameras, very good battery life that lasts well over a day, performance as fast as any rival phone, and of course, the now-unique S-Pen stylus tucked away in the phone for when you need it.
It’s one of few phones out there with a squared off body and screen, but it feels good to hold thanks to top build quality and nicely tapered edges and screen. This design rewards you with the best screen of any phone, perfect for any app you can throw at it, and superlative for watching videos.
The 200Mp main camera is outstanding, particularly if you like slightly saturated colours that pop more than they do in real life. That’s not to say they look artificial though – the quality is superb with the versatility of an ultrawide and two separate 3x and 10 optical telephoto lenses that are all excellent. It;s a shame the selife camera is terrible in low light.

4. Google Pixel 7a – Best value phone
Phenomenal camera for the price
Excellent Google software
Wireless charging is unreliable
Not as fast as the Pixel 7
Only 90Hz display
Best Prices Today:
The Google Pixel 7a takes all the best parts of 2023’s Pixel 6a – great camera, solid performance, several years of software support – and improves it with a better 90Hz screen and more premium design.
It’s a little more expensive at $499/£449/€509, but this is still one of the best value phones you can buy considering you really don’t lose much for this price compared to the $899/£849/€899 Pixel 7 Pro. With a smaller 6.1in display, the Pixel 7a is also much easier to use and pocket than many of the larger phones on this list, plus it has the same Tensor G2 chipset as the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro.
The 64Mp main camera is truly exceptional. There is no better phone camera for still images at this price, and barely any better at any price. You can also buy the phone in playful blue and coral colours, or stick to white or black if you prefer.
The charging is very slow, and the added wireless charging was unreliable in our testing. But if you want an Android phone with five years of software support that’s a good all-rounder with an incredible camera – here you go.

5. OnePlus 11 – Best value flagship phone
Five years of software support
No wireless charging
Not fully waterproof
OnePlus has nailed the balance with the OnePlus 11, bringing a fully-featured premium smartphone for an outstanding price. At $699/£729/€849, the only things it noticeably misses out on are wireless charging and full waterproofing (we are more annoyed about the latter than the former).
If you can forgo those nice-to-haves then you’ll find yourself with a phone that has everything else you could want: amazingly fast performance, an excellent display, strong cameras including a very good main 50Mp lens, and four years of Android updates and five of security updates. That’s only matched in the Android world by Samsung and Fairphone (iPhones get the longest software support at more than five years).
The OnePlus 11 is also a slim and svelte phone despite its 6.7in screen, which isn’t the case with other huge phones. You can go for the green glossy model or the black version that has a matt, almost-silk like finish to the back glass. It means it gets zero fingerprints, but it’s one of the slipperiest phones out there.
So long as you don’t mind the slight laboured newer version of OxygenOS that often changes Android for change sake, then this is a great phone at a price that ensures you’ll get your money’s worth if you can make it last five years.

6. iPhone 14 – Superb all-rounder phone
Outstanding battery life
Superb dual cameras
Top build quality
No RAW photo shooting
Best Prices Today:
The iPhone 14 isn’t as good as the iPhone 14 Pro but it costs less – even if it is pretty much an iPhone 13 with a new name. The only things of note it adds to the 13 is a very slightly improved main camera and the admittedly impressed stablisation video mode called Action Mode.
There’s also car crash detection, which you will hopefully never have to use – the bottom line is, don’t upgrade from an iPhone 13, but otherwise this is the go-to iPhone for most people right now. The battery life is excellent and it has great performance, while the cameras are top notch despite not having a telephoto lens.
As ever with Apple, built quality is the best in the business, and iOS is extremely stable software. You’ll also get software updates for about five years, and can get a repair done at any Apple Store. If you want a larger screen and more battery, you could opt for the iPhone 14 Plus, but we prefer this smaller model.

7. Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 – Best foldable phone
Solid battery life
Folds in half
‘Slow’ 25W charging
No telephoto camera
Best Prices Today:
Samsung has addressed the Z Flip 3’s issues of bad battery life and middling camera performance for the price and made the Z Flip 4 an all-day phone with the same main and ultrawide cameras as the Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus.
It means this is the best foldable phone you can buy today, at a price similar to flagship slab smartphones. While durability questions remain over the display and the crease in it, we can’t test that – but Samsung says the Flip will last for at least 200,000 open and close motions, which roughly equates to five years of average use.
The improved battery is likely down the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset with its improved energy efficiency, meaning you no longer have to charge the Flip halfway through the day. 8GB RAM is more than enough, though you might want to spend a little more to get 256GB storage. We also love the side mounted fingerprint sensor.
For all intents and purposes, this is an S22 with a better processor that folds down to half its size. It’s compelling, and one of the best phones full stop.

8. Motorola Moto G62 – Best budget phone
Tidy hardware & software
Strong battery life
Performance isn’t 120Hz-worthy
Slow 15W charging
Camera struggles in less than optimal lighting
The phone that sits atop our best budget phone round up should rightly get a mention as one of the best phones overall – not every great phone has to cost the earth.
The Moto G62 is a sub-£200 handset with all the basics covered – a solid 120Hz screen, attractively simple Android software, very good two-day battery life and a chipset with a processor strong enough to keep up with normal everyday phone tasks (unlike other cheaper phones).
A 50Mp main camera is also nice to find at this price, but there’s no stablisation tech so you’ll need a steady hand, while the ultrawide and macro lenses aren’t anything to write home about. But at this price, a camera that takes bright, sharp images in daylight is all you could want.
With 5G built in then you’re set for a few years of use on new networks, though we don’t expect the G62 to get many software updates. Motorola doesn’t sell this phone in the US, but it sells plenty of equivalent solid Moto phones for around the $200 price point.

9. Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus – Goldilocks Android phone
Bright, sharp, flat screen
Great battery life
Five years of software support
Solid, versatile cameras
45W charging a little slow
Software takes some tweaking
Best Prices Today:
The Galaxy S23 Plus is a great choice if you don’t want a truly enormous Samsung phone with a pen (S23 Ultra) but do want a decent size display, top battery life and the best software support in the Android game with five years.
We found the phone performed excellently in testing and comes equipped with three capable rear camera lenses without the bulk of other triple-camera phones out there. The design is a little plain, sure, but once you’ve got it in a case then you won’t mind anyway. The software takes more tweaking to get it to your liking compared to Pixel phones, but Samsung’s OneUI is more customisable than Google’s version of Android.
The phone feels premium in aluminium and glass, the display is truly excellent with good outdoor visibility and if all this seems great apart from it being to big for you then fear not – there’s also a regular Galaxy S23 that has a smaller display.

10. Xiaomi 13 Pro – The newest phone camera tech
Impressive 120W charging
Solid battery life
Huge rear camera module
We’ll say it up top – this phone would be higher in this chart if Xiaomi’s MIUI software was better and more pleasant to use than it currently is. It’s a shame, because the Xiaomi 13 Pro has some of the most accomplished hardware in the smartphone world.
It’s one of the first phones you can buy outside of China that has a 1in camera sensor, tech that is hotly tipped to level-up smartphone cameras in the next couple of years, but Xiaomi got there early doors. In our testing, the larger sensor area takes in more light, resulting in sensational low light photography and a level of detail not found on smaller sensors. Throw in a capable 50Mp telephoto sensor and a 50Mp ultrawide and you’ve got a great set up, despite the large camera bump.
The phone runs the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, powering through every task with ease, and it has great battery life to boot.
Now, if it weren’t for that pesky software…
Read our full Xiaomi 13 Pro reviewYour buying guide for the best phones in 2023
When choosing a phone you should consider these things: build quality and design, ease of use, features, performance, and value.
Generally speaking, a flagship phone in 2023 will start at around $700/£700 but can cost over $1,000/£1,000 in some cases. On contract, you’re looking at between £30 and £50-per-month on average in the UK but you can spend a lot more if you want an expensive phone and lots of mobile data.
In the US you can often find very good contract deals on phones, better than in the UK and Europe.
It’s worth noting that while this list highlights the best smartphones available right now, that doesn’t explicitly mean flagships (even though they do feature heavily here). There are entries that cross over with our mid-range and budget phone charts too, but earnt their place here, based on the capabilities and quality on offer, relative to their price.
Buying a phone outright will usually give you the best value, but we appreciate finances in the real world don’t always accommodate such big one-off purchases. If you can, you’ll obviously need a SIM card and plan, as well as the phone. If you don’t already have one, check out our best SIM-only deals.FAQ
1.Should you buy an iPhone or Android phone?
There’s more than one mobile operating system, but really only two worth talking about: Android and iOS.
The vast majority of phones today run Android – 13 being the latest publicly-released version. Apple’s iOS platform, currently on iOS 16, may have a lower market share but developers almost always release their apps on iOS first. As a result of this approach, it has one of the best app stores you can find.
If you have an Android phone or an iPhone and want to move to a phone running the other OS (operating system), it’s fairly easy to transfer your contacts and other select data from one to the other. What you can’t move are paid-for apps and certain app data (like WhatsApp backups), so keep this in mind if you’re considering a change of platform – and research any specific concerns you may have about the process.
2.Why should you buy an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone is one that is not tied to any particular mobile operator, such as Vodafone or EE. Buying ‘unlocked’ usually means buying the phone outright without a SIM card or contract attached.
The most important point is that an unlocked phone is almost always a better deal than buying a phone on contract – if you can afford it.
The only real exception to this is Apple’s iPhones – because of their traditional popularity, operators often subsidise the cost of buying an iPhone in order to lock you into a lucrative long-term deal.
Generally speaking, if you can afford the upfront cost of the handset, you will pay less over the life of your phone by buying unlocked.
More importantly, you are not locked into a lengthy contract. If you want a new handset at any time, you can buy one without having to up-purchase your way out of said contract or commit to another two years.
Just be sure to make certain the phone you’re getting is not locked to a certain network.
3.Which SIM or mobile plan should you get?
One other thing to consider is the size and shape of the SIM required for your phone. Make sure you get a nano-SIM if a nano-SIM is what your phone requires.
For the record, every phone in this list takes a nano-SIM.
If you get that wrong it is easily solvable; every network will gladly send over a different-sized SIM. SIM cards tend to come in all three sizes, you simply pop out the one you need.
But that’s assuming you are getting a new SIM, and if you’re looking for a SIM-free phone or unlocked phone you probably already have one.
More important is to make sure that if you want 5G you get a 5G-enabled phone and SIM.

Animes refer to animation in Japan, and despite their reputation for lowbrow graphics and nerdy content, they remain unique. They have been around for decades and are known for their gripping storylines. However, it can be hard to get into animes. If you are one of those or simply looking for the best animes to binge-watch, I got you covered!
I have compiled a list of the best animes to watch on Netflix and Hulu! Keep scrolling to find out.
Total Episodes: 220
IMDb rating: 8.3
Did you really expect that Naruto won’t be a part of this list? Any Top-10 anime list is incomplete without Naruto. While this one needs no introduction, I will still talk about the show’s gist if you want to awaken the inner Hokage in you.
I’d recommend Naruto to those new to animes.
Watch on Netflix
2. Death Note
Total Episodes: 37
IMDb rating: 9.0
Genre: Crime, mystery, horror
Death Note is based on the manga published on the Weekly Shonen Jump. It is undoubtedly one of the best thriller animes out there!
Our teenage heartthrob Light Yagami stumbles upon a notebook which makes him God. You might be thinking, how exactly does a notebook make one as powerful as God? Because the notebook is called “Death Note,” and whoever’s name is written down in it, that person dies at the specified time.
Yagami starts unyielding this power to carry out a cleanse and starts killing “unworthy” people to make the world a better place.
While the characters in Death Note will make you question your morality, you will still be left reeling for more episodes. And that’s where Death Note will let you down because it only has 37 episodes. Nevertheless, Death Note is one of the best short anime series.
It will hook you sheerly for its high-level game of wits that keep you on your toes through to the end. And I am not kidding!
Caution: Steer clear of the Netflix movie on the same. It was a big letdown for many like me!
Watch on Netflix
3. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
Total Episodes: 34 and counting
IMDb rating: 8.7
Genre: Drama, action, dark fantasy
Demon Slayer is set in the early 20th century in Japan, in a land where humans and demons co-exist. Our protagonist is Tanjiro Kamado, whose family is killed by demons while he is not at home. His sister, Nezuko, is converted to a demon.
The plot follows Tanjiro as he decides to become a demon slayer, not to kill the demons of the world but to find a way to restore his sister to a human.
You will fall in love not just with Tanjiro and his companions but with the scintillating graphics at play here too. Demon Slayer makes for a gripping watch. Like the previous two in the list, Demon Slayer is also based on the manga by Koyoharu Gotoge.

Have you ever about how you would bring someone back from the dead if magic existed? You’re not alone! Turns out that the writer of Fullmetal Alchemist thought the same too! It is about two brothers – Edward and Alphonse Elric, living in Amestris, where magic is real and is called Alchemy.
The duo tries to bring their dead mother back. However, bringing someone is considered a taboo in the world they live in, and they pay for it. Edward, the elder brother, loses his right arm and left leg, whereas the younger brother Alphonse loses his body, and his soul is trapped in a suit of armor. Because alchemy has a basic principle: to obtain, something of equal value must be lost.
The anime follows the journey of the two brothers while they try to get their bodies back. En route, we find out the dark secrets of alchemy.
As the name suggests, the anime is entwined with brotherhood, love, and courage. There won’t be a dull moment while watching Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood!

The anime follows Ichigo and his friends as they travel through the Soul Society and indulge in fights.
Not only does Ichigo win my heart over and again, but the fight sequences in the anime are also super cool. Many have criticized Bleach for its overcrowded cast, but that’s something I like about it.
And if you were worried about the length of the anime, there are over 350 episodes to keep you occupied.

Listen up. SEO is still as important as ever. Don’t get dissuaded by influencer marketing or programmatic ad buying — search engine optimization is still a juggernaut within the marketing space. However, SEO best practices are changing year to year, and even month to month. As search engines tinker with their algorithms, what gets valued changes.
This leaves SEO specialists and content creation specialists in a place of constant limbo. They need to stay updated on the latest trends and updates put out by Google and Bing. Then they must implement these guidelines into the technical and content sides of their SEO practices.
“There will no doubt be a lot of new and exciting SEO trends in 2023 and beyond, but it’s important to note that many of the new SEO algorithms (such as Google’s BERT) are mainly focused on user intent and providing said user a great experience. Therefore, no matter how the SEO landscape changes, you can’t go wrong if you focus on creating relevant, useful content that is written with the end-user in mind – not search engines.”
– Chris Winters, Venta Marketing Senior Campaign Manager
At the most basic level, the best SEO practices remain the same: exceptional content creation and sound technical maintenance. However, we have identified five critical SEO trends for 2023 that you need to start using in your strategy. We all love the power of Google, but when SEO guidelines shift, it’s time to pay the piper.
Landing in Position Zero
These selected snippets by Google — directly, accurately, and clearly answer the stated query. Aiming to land in position zero requires content that focuses on understandable, expert information that solves the question of the user.
Content and Voice Search: A Loving Relationship
Mobile searches surpassed desktop searches a few years ago. With smart technology, voice searches are carving out a large chunk of everyday internet queries. Voice search is here, and here to stay. As more people ask questions to their speaker or smartphone, content needs to keep that in mind. This translates to blogs, services pages, videos, etc. needing to be crafted in a way that centers around questions that focus on “what” or “how” — as those are the two biggest trigger words in current voice searches.
Video, Video, Video
Video content receives the best engagement rates of any form of content. At its heart, SEO is seeking to connect users with the right information — and information that the user finds useful or entertaining. Incorporating video content in your SEO strategy is no longer a good suggestion, but instead a requirement. In order to climb the SERP rankings, producing dynamic content is essential. Users engage at a higher rate, spend more time on the page, and are more likely to navigate through a website.
Prioritize Mobile UX
As mentioned, mobile searches garner the majority of search engine queries. This requires that your pages, and website as a whole, prioritize the mobile user experience. Therefore, technical SEO needs to be perfected. From fast loading times to ensuring no-redirects occur, these backend aspects need to be in order to provide a good experience for page visitors.
ABO: Always Be Optimizing
Content quickly becomes outdated. The information you produce has a lifespan in relevancy, whether that is determined by new information or competitors that produce it in a better way. In an effort to maintain the value your content has to users, you should refresh, edit, and add to your old content in a six-month cycle. In doing so, you can protect and improve the rankings of your already existing content.
