    Several days ago I stepped into the Pocketnow family with a heartfelt piece on Pebble and how I thought that their future might be a little murky. Despite my intense love for the simplistic wearables that arguably kicked off the trend, I truly feared that the “big dogs” in the industry would end up forcing this ...

    The LG G5, by itself, is one of the top smartphones to look for this year. But it's not just the speedy internals, great camera, and all around performance that make this phone interesting; when the company first introduced the G5 at the 2016 MWC, LG also went the extra mile in doing what many have called the first ...

    The same lawmaker that had the state of Utah recognize that pornography is a public health crisis is back at it. This time, Senator Todd Weiler is working on three bills that would force Utahns to opt-in to access X-rated materials online. Some of them would require filters be installed onto smartphones and tablets. // ...

    Talking about making Windows 10 mobile — with a lower-case "m". Instead of NUCs or stick computers, why not have a fully operable interface open up right from your thoroughly stuffed pocket? That's what the GOLE1 looks to provide. The Indiegogo project — put up by ARMdevices.net from Shenzhen — touts the device as ...

    The Nexus Player is done. It's been done at many retailers for the past few months, but it's especially done now as the Google Store has stopped selling it. In fact, the product page doesn't exist anymore — the link that would take you there redirects to the Google Store's TV & Audio section. Ironically, the Nexus ...

    With Amazon's runaway pace found in Alexa and the products based on that service, the voice assistant has gotten very popular with other tech companies. Google Assistant (and Google Home) and Microsoft's army of bots are on their way for the future. If Apple announces its own measure, it will be the last to do so at ...

    It's unusual to see a Chinese firm sue other companies for stealing their unique designs — partly because those other companies copy each other at rapid pace that you can't really tell who came up with what in the first place. It's mostly due to loose regulations in the country guiding intellectual property. But it's ...

    We recently produced a video tour of the newest Android N preview, and viewers were quick to point out an omission. This build of Android lacked a dark theme. This has been a long requested feature in the Nexus community, and we've seen glimpses of it pop up in BETA builds, but Developer Preview 3 has cut the ability to ...

    The last thing you think of when you hear about a "modular smartphone" would be Apple. It's not Project Ara, it's not PuzzlePhone, it's not even a Fairphone. An iPhone is all about what's on the phone and the accessories you can get for it. Well, case maker OtterBox has an idea of what accessories you'll want to get for ...

We think we know that it has a 20W charging solution that may get branded as "Dash Charge". And we just haven't been sure about some other rumors, predicated on the phone's model name — a combination of ...

    Is it already too late for the first ever Windows 10 Mobile flagships to break the flagging OS into the mainstream scene? It sure seems like it, and it certainly doesn’t help that Microsoft’s software focus is directed elsewhere, and the high-end Lumia device family might as well be dead, with a business-centric ...
