    There are a ton of reasons to love the OnePlus One, starting with its price tag. Moving that specific reason aside, another big reason is that the device runs a pre-installed version of CyanogenMod, or should we say, as long as you don't live in India. Certain exclusive deals force OnePlus to sell this device with its custom version of Android 5.0 Lollipop, though if your device already runs CyanogenMod, there's a good chance that you're in luck. Cyanogen Inc has just taken the time to explain how its policies will work in India, and things might get lucky for a few. If you purchase the ...

    We've been able to share files instantly on Android devices and even certain services on Windows Phones for the longest time, and still, Apple didn't wake up to that need until iOS 8. That being said, even if the feature exists today, it still depends on the speed at which developers have decided to adopt iOS 8, and that's taken a bit. You'd think it would only be a matter of time for this feature to become famous, but a new iCloud restriction pulls things back. Developers are already complaining about an odd new rule that doesn't allow them to submit applications that share content with ...

    Pockentow Daily gets an average of 300 to 500 comments a day, and sometimes even a thousand. We’d like to thank you all for participating in our question of the day, and we love your feedback so much, that we decided that since we can’t respond to ever single one of your comments, we should at least feature a couple in a weekly video. This is the Pocketnow Daily Recap. Since we only have 3 minutes on every Daily video to go through the hottest news, the weekly recap will serve as a more extensive discussion where we also include your thoughts on the subject. Sadly, for the sake of ...

    Microsoft is famous for being the king of enterprise, but the exception to that rule comes in the form of smartphones. The company has lost a ton of corporate customers to Apple and Google, mainly because of how long its taken the company to adopt corporate basics like VPN support on its Windows Phones. All those problems are solved now with Windows Phone 8.1, and it seems the company is about to land a big fish. Reports claim that BMW is about to make a dramatic overhaul to the smartphones that its employees use, and it seems that the company will go from the vintage Nokia Symbian ...

    Apple has found a lot of success with the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, even though new rumors claim that the company might build a smaller phone next year as well. Apple's only problem with the launch of its smartphones this year, was being able to meet demand for the iPhone 6 Plus, something logical given Apple's skepticism to launch a phablet in the past. The good thing is that Cupertino already understood that there is significant demand for bigger iPhones, and it seems the company is already preparing for next year's demand. Reports claim that Apple is about to expand its ...

    Samsung has been up to a lot of changes in order to make a comeback. Some of these changes include reducing its smartphone lineup to the bare essentials, something that we highly praise at a time when the Galaxy lineup has diluted more than the folks at Korea would like. There are some negative changes as well, mainly to do with the company downsizing its corporate structure, but it could just be that this is the beginning. New leaks show that Samsung is working on a couple of devices that are currently being dubbed the Samsung SM-E500F and SM-E700H. The report claims that both of these ...

    Samsung's last few quarters haven't painted a pretty picture for investors. The company has failed to wow the world with devices like the Galaxy S5, barely reaching 60% of its sales goals, and placing even the company's CEO of Mobile in the short list for a pink slip. We recently learned that J.K. Shin will keep his job after all, but that doesn't mean that there won't be a corporate shakeup. The news are that Samsung is already sending out pink slips to numerous executives in lower positions, though by lower, we're talking directly bellow J.K. Shin. The report claims that vice presidents, ...

    We all know that one size doesn't fit all, and Apple clearly knew that as well with the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Cupertino acknowledged early on that the market demanded a bigger iPhone, but it also knew that there was another crowd that demanded a phablet. Still, we know that there are people that value one-handed usability, and for them Apple decided to leave the aging iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, and it seems there are plans for that to continue. Reports claim that Apple is already working on building a new iPhone that retains the dimensions of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c ...

    Some of you may not agree with the obsession of certain companies to make devices thinner and lighter. Thinness might not matter to all, but it's hard to ignore that some of the best selling smartphones in the world, are also the thinnest ones. You can also argue that the as phones continue to grow in size, a thin profile will improve your experience using it. All this said, what happens when a smartphone is so thin that it can't even fit a 3.5mm headphone jack? Oppo has decided to give Apple a run for its money with a smartphone that's a crazy 2mm thinner than the already thin iPhone 6. ...

    Apple is very famous for retaliating against any company that copies it's designs, and we have the extensive Apple Vs. Samsung trial to prove it. That said, it's extremely common for anyone to find Chinese rip-offs of any iPhone all around Asia. Isn't it odd that today we find news or a Chinese company claiming otherwise? Chinese smartphone maker Digione is claiming that the design of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are a copy of its existing design for a device under its 100+ brand in China. This device is a low-end $130 smartphone that's apparently been available for a while, even though ...
