Through February 20, the Microsoft Band 2 will again ...

    The biggest football game of the year was probably a little less hotly contested than neutral fans may have wished for, but the publicity wars were as fierce as ever, with millions of dollars spent by companies as diverse as Audi, Budweiser, Buick, Coca Cola, Hyundai, LG, Pantene, Pepsi, Snickers, and T-Mobile on ...

    For a fledgling, immature, and extremely experimental market, the virtual reality universe is about to get a little too crowded for its own good, with options ranging from your rudimentary Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR to the much fancier Oculus Rift and HTC Vive soon.

    It should be crystal clear by now that, while it fell short of overly optimistic expectations from ardent iFans, the Apple Watch sold magnificently well during its first eight or nine months in stores, acting as the main catalyst behind the global rise of wrist-worn gadgets. Granted, Fitbits and Xiaomi Mi Bands also ...

    We don't know. It's a week from Valentine's Day and the tackiest, but most appropriate color is being talked about once again (and again and again). This year's four-inch iPhone that will likely come in the next month or so supposedly now has a pink option in addition to the silver and space gray options already in the ...

    This quick-rising rascal seems to be pretty quick in itself. The Galaxy A-series 2016 has come about with the Galaxy A9 being the standard bearer for the line. That phone hit the upper mid-range on the price scale, but we wondered what a Galaxy A9 Pro would go for. We caught up with it in India and had shot the breeze a ...

    Like that football game that just happened, this news may not end up being a total upset to Windows 10 Mobile fans. After whiffs of a more-than-decent mid-range Lumia 850 — perhaps as Microsoft's last of the last Lumia phones — have settled, it seems that a change in the narrative was called for. Sidlers at Baidu's ...

    The term “life in a box” is one that many of us are familiar with. Often it refers to a smartphone, or in olden times, perhaps a PDA or even a computer. Regardless, today that term is becoming more and more appropriate. Starting in January, I started buying my train pass via mobile app. No longer did I have to carry ...

    The LG G5 is expected to be one of the hottest phones of 2016. There are tons of rumors that point to the company playing with a bold new design that might be smart enough to cause some disruption in the market.

    Expertise is something earned. It's also a big marketing tool. With OPPO having some eight years on the mobile market, it has been able to innovate in hardware time and time again. But its flamboyant output has typically been outside the scan of those with thinner wallets. And that's where the company has to make do ...

    There’s a pretty healthy economy online for selling and trading used smartphones. Unfortunately there’s no guarantee that even a well-kept and functional device wasn’t subjected to smoke and tar from a smoker. Maybe you can send the device back to the seller, but if you’re stuck with it, that’s a bummer. A ...

    The sorry financial state of tech conglomerate Sharp has left few options for its creditors and potential acquirers in Japan. But Taiwan-based Foxconn sees a chance to gain a brand name and a crack at making products for its own profit. Chairman Terry Gou told press that the company had signed for prioritized ...

    HTC has kept its word. Specifically, last week, it was Sprint's HTC One M8 that got the upgrade. We were told that it would be within this week that the manufacturer's latest phone on the Now network would do the same ditty. Funnily enough, it did, after T-Mobile launched its Marshmallow upgrade for the LG G4. HTC One ...

    For as much thought as we put into PINs, passwords, and biometric authentication on our phones, security often feels like an afterthought – or not thought about at all – when it comes to wearables like smartwatches. To an extent, that makes sense; after all, we're a lot less likely to accidentally lose track of a ...

    Doing even the simplest-seeming thing on our smartphones can involve a lot of little moving parts. Information needs to be gathered from input sources, interpreted, passed to the right processes, ferried off to remote cell towers, routed to the right servers – and that's just getting started. Every step along the way ...

    How many objectively different smartphone can one company release under the same name? And how long can it keep that routine going? When we see a manufacturer like Samsung release a flagship Galaxy phone running different SoCs in different markets, it's one thing, but as more and more of those specs change, and more and ...

    Net neutrality may be the law of the land, but carriers aren't about to sit idly by and treat all content as equal while there's money to be made by doing the opposite. So while paid prioritization may be out the window so long as the FCC is getting its way, carriers have been quick to come at things from another ...

    Sure we have wireless charging and cloud data back ups, but we still rely on cables for a lot of our power and data management. iOS users went through a connector transition several years ago, moving from the wide, flat, 30 pin dock connector to the smaller lightning connector. Now the rest of the smartphone industry is ...
