    While many iFans might deem the aftermath of Apple’s latest earnings call a massive overreaction from people habituated to making easy money without taking risks, the signs that suggest the Cupertino juggernaut will not return to form anytime soon continue to pile up. The iPhone 7 is still a little ways down the road, ...

    Water resistance, ubiquitous Samsung Pay support, and a phenomenal camera. Those are just three of the Galaxy S7’s major selling points, and although they’ve been highlighted before in TV ads and various other publicity stunts (one in particular), there’s no such thing as trying too hard to stay ahead of the ...

    Gone are the days HTC’s Android smartphones all looked the same, although it’s still a little confusing to tell which mid-ranger is which. The flagship HTC 10 is of course unique from an aesthetic standpoint, at least for the time being, while the One S9 strongly resembles the age-old M9, and the Desire 825 and 830 ...

    The tale of HTC’s as-yet unannounced rookie smartwatch is one as old as time, with updates served up by otherwise credible tipsters once every few months, but no materialization. A possible explanation for the constant holdup is the Taiwanese company’s fragile financial condition, though the Vive VR headset and ...

    You might know Casey Neistat. He's a logged a bunch of calories. He's ridden on Citi Bikes. He's snowboarded through Midtown. All of that's on YouTube. Neistat co-founded Beme, Inc. as a social technology company. And Beme is the name of the app it has officially come out with. It's been on iOS for a while now as a ...

    BlackBerry CEO John Chen wrapped up a talk at the Milken Institute Global Conference today with some media stew. That stew was all up in the company's smartphones — phones that investors have seen the end of and that won't be making money. When a Bloomberg interviewer pointed out Chen's prior pledge to give up on ...

    $399.99. $349.99. Now $299.99. Lenovo's Motorola has been fighting against some real anger for allegedly failing to properly serve its own warranties. On the flipside, we're all shaking like prairie dogs for the next Moto X to debut. All of this tied back to Mother's Day being this week and we have a good enough ...

    Sometimes, it's better to drop your hand than keep a finger pointed, especially when there are bigger fights to struggle through. Just recently, Microsoft has buried the hatchet with Google when it came to poor practices tattling. Microsoft and Samsung also had a patent spat settled. Now, NVIDIA and Samsung are ...

    As clunky as the user interface is, one of the joys of using LG's software atop Android is the fact that you can adjust the height of your keyboard. Feel like going two-handed? Make it short. One-handed day? Make it tall. You just had to use an LG phone to get this magic out of the box. But you aren't limited anymore as ...

It'll also hit the brick-and-mortars with 48 Best Buy stores nationwide demonstrating and selling ...

    Remember the Galaxy S5? Remember that weirdo Micro-B connector port that supported USB 3.0? That was a funky aberration, right? Since then, Samsung has decided to keep with plain 'ol Micro-B for juicing up your phone and delivering data to and from other places. Even as many other OEMs slide over to USB Type-C ...

    Amazon seems to know what it's doing with tablets — it's been blasting the budget bin with its Fire tablet. It's a standard little seven-incher with Wi-Fi capability and 8GB of on-board storage. We saw it launch at $49.99 and even get put into six-packs for $250. And still, it begs to be discounted. It's now $39.99. ...

    Your mother may not understand what you're talking about when she asks for Wi-Fi help. But if you do love her, she does deserve a little appreciation and more than just a couple texts a year. Then again, if you have retail holiday fatigue, you might want to avoid the carriers this week. T-Mobile is one of the networks ...

    Well, it seems like we've found our new main vertical to cover here at Pocketnow and that's the smart contact lens. Seriously, first Samsung shows up at Korea's patent office with something people have been calling a "Gear Blink," then Sony's all up in the USPTO with a "contact lens and storage medium." Yep, putting on ...

    Meizu's billboard device right now may be the PRO 6, but it also has a major product line that serves the price bracket under that spotlight and that's its MX-series (you see the MX5 as our header). And to be frank, we're pretty darn surprised that we haven't gone on the trail for the MX6. After all, it's said to have ...

    Double tap to wake. LG's done it. So has HTC. Several others, too. It's faster and doesn't need as much effort as pressing a button. Previous Nokia Lumias have this feature — particularly talking about the pre-Windows 10 Mobile handsets. It's not on the Lumia 950. Neither on the Lumia 950 XL. So, when Microsoft's ...

    Fingerprint sensors became bog standard on high-end phones last year and have crept into less expensive devices this year. But it's been a bit dry in terms of innovating on biometric security. Sure, Qualcomm has its Sense ID tech that enhances print scans with ultrasonic waves, but as far as we know or care, it hasn't ...

    When Huawei decides to put out a flagship, there comes flying from the factories a few of its friends. Something large. Something small. Sometimes, some thing that's a little mid-ranger. And that's where we get to know the Huawei G9 over some paint-poisoned fruit and some Ferrero Rocher. Yes, we know that the US just ...

    Warranties fall into that category of “things you don’t think about until you need it”. At the end of the day, it’s nice that if your phone stops working in a short period of time, you can contact the company who made the phone and get some kind of satisfaction – most of the time. But every now and then, those ...

Who'd want to walk around town and into stores buying stuff with their headsets on? Seriously. Well, Samsung does have an idea that makes more sense that not only gets kids involved, but it also keeps ...
