    While Android enthusiasts understandably celebrated the highly anticipated public rollout of a final, fully polished 7.0 Nougat build a couple of days ago, it’s important to remember this also marks the beginning of another major struggle.

    One of the main questions we get on Twitter lately is if it's really worth to upgrade from the Galaxy Note 5 to the brand new Galaxy Note 7.

    Verizon's preferences have overtaken Samsung's plans for a uniform customer experience on the Galaxy Note 7.

    Time to knock some balls about. RootMetrics chewed through 265,386 miles across all 50 states and performed nearly 3.7 million tests in conditions from the great outdoors to the urban jungles and, yes, even inside the concrete canopies of 125 metropolitan areas. All of that just to find out how our big four carriers ...

    Let's not be bashful. This camera rocks. We very much enjoyed the still photo performance on the Huawei P9, and the Honor 8 is nearly identical. Dual camera sensors mimic the way our eyes work. One sensor focuses on color, the other on light. When the output of both sensors is merged, we get photos unlike any other ...

    OnePlus has been known to sell some miscellany at its will. Yep, even an iPhone case or two. But its main side business (a somewhat ironic term) has been selling earbuds. Sure, there's the generic "Silver Bullets" stuff you can get from almost anywhere, but then there's the OnePlus Icons. They're tagged at $50, have ...

    To be honest, the Axon Max that ZTE debuted for its domestic audience last year didn't look to be a welcome addition. Sure, the company had some aesthetics going on and a large screen for the people who prefer them. The Snapdragon 617 inside of it was somewhat weak, though. Well, good news and bad news — GFXBench has ...

    Android 7.0 Nougat wasn't as flashy as you expected it to be, right? Where was the Nexus Launcher? Where's Allo and Google Assistant and that "not a home button" home button? Where are all the software changes that we're looking forward to on the Marlin Nexus device? Not here just yet. But XDA developer Nate Benis is ...

    Didn’t believe us the first time we covered Samsung’s next big clamshell smartphone, codenamed Veyron (after the sports car), likely to be dubbed Galaxy Golden 4 (after its three predecessors), and carrying the futuristic SM-W2017 model number (following in the footsteps of last year’s SM-W2016)?

    You know the low-end Galaxy Grand Prime that T-Mobile tried to incentivize Galaxy S7 buyers with a few months back? Believe it or not, it’s about to turn two whole years old, and in spite of its obvious US prepaid success, as well as enduring Eastern European popularity, the 5-incher never got a direct follow-up. Too ...

    While 2017 looks pretty much certain to be the road-opening year of sharper, not-necessarily-pricier OLED iPhones, the jury is still out on whether we’ll also see Apple adopt curved display technology manufactured by Samsung in 12 or 24 months. It remains unclear how many of next year’s iPhone 8 (7s?) configurations ...

    Trying to break into a competitive space dominated by Apple and Spotify, and also including respected veterans or tech giants like Deezer, Google, Pandora or Tidal, doesn’t make much sense for Amazon, unless Jeff Bezos can think of a unique marketing angle for music streaming addicts.

    Choice is always good, and you can never have too many options when it comes to the competitive yet rigid world of mobile operating systems.
