    As we get closer to the rumored announcement date of the Galaxy Note 7, it's probably too early to call it time for a rumor roundup. We know that if anything, rumors are just going to get more accurate over the next few days, but that also depends on the possibility of Samsung making an annoucement in early August, as most rumors point to so far. Whether we get one variant, two, or different regional variants, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will definitely be one of the hottest phones of the year. As such, we decided to follow-up on our recent editorial with our wish list for all we'd like to ...

Sadly, for the sake of ...

    Most new device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review. Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the same time. It’s a huge frenzy, commenters go nuts, and it’s a giant explosion of frantic opinion-sharing activity. For about … a day. And then it all goes away. Sure, there’s followup coverage as people find bugs and hidden features, but after that initial blast, not ...

    At at time when storage plays a big roll in the peace of mind that most of us need while we work, solid state drives have become quite popular. In that sense 2016 is a very good year, mainly because most of these SSDs have become extremely portable, and have now even extended their reach to mobile devices, and not just computers. Such is the case of the Samsung T3 SSD. The only problem of the average SSD is its price tag, but once you match the added convenience of the T3, you might be looking into a must-have product. Watch our quick look video as we take a look.

    The approach to special edition phones is not new, with cases like Samsung launching a batman phone and pricing it for a staggering amount of money for just a different logo at the back. Oppo hasn't really focused on super hero phones, but instead on devices that cater to the sports lover in you. As a result, Oppo's approach to the F1 Plus Barcelona Edition is a different story to what we see elsewhere. If you're an FC Barcelona fan, the Oppo F1 Plus special edition is probably one of the coolest sports-oriented gadgets we've seen in a while. Watch our full video to learn more.

    Apple has spent the last few years remaining loyal to IPS LCD display technology, regardless if you look to a Mac or an iPhone. It wasn't until the launch of the Apple Watch that the company took a step away, and it makes sense given the added power consumption benefits of OLED technology, in addition to the deep blacks. Today we learn, however, that Cupertino might be ready for a jump soon. DigiTimes is reporting that Apple might make a jump from traditional OLED technology to Micro-LED somewhere around the second half of 2017. According to supply chain sources, Micro-LED technology is ...

    BlackBerry might not be on everyone's radar as it was around a decade ago, but that doesn't mean the company hasn't tried to change that. It took two dramatic shake-overs to have the company finally adopt Android with the BlackBerry Priv. We do know that the company's quarter results didn't say anything positive about that move, but that isn't everything the company has up its sleeve. Following the recent rumors of mid-range BlackBerry devices following the Priv, about the only missing piece of the puzzle is when. Lucky for us, the company's CEO John Chen did us the favor of spilling ...

    Google pulled an interesting stunt with the early launch of Android N to developers. At the moment the company still doesn't have a pastry name for the OS, and some of us believe that this early teaser is still missing a ton of things that Google is not prepared to show. Some recent leaks show a totally new design to the Android navigation buttons, which in a way are more aligned with the company's Now On Tap services. Instead of hollow drawings, the new buttons are now of a solid white, and the home button has four colors on the borders to mimic Google's colors. The source claims that ...

    Rumors surrounding an iPhone with an OLED display continue to grow strong. We've seen how Cupertino and Samsung have been slow dancing lately to the rhythm of a partnership that has stirred strong rumors surrounding this particular endeavor. We also know that Apple is not famous for placing all its eggs in one basket, and this is not the exception. Sources claim that Apple and Sharp will partner in order to bring a second supplier for the company's OLED plans in the future. If you've been following the facts though, you know that Sharp is one of Apple's existing display partners, but the ...

    Last year's Alcatel OneTouch did an amazing job at selling a solid product with the Idol 3. Great specs, great design and a great price tag were enough to land a solid place as one of our favorite devices to recommend for 2015. Fast Forward to 2016, switch the company name to just Alcatel, and along came the Idol 4 that made a ton of headlines at MWC, but yes, we've been waiting since MWC. Clove has just announced that it has received stock of the Alcatel Idol 4, along with the VR headset that it was announced with, and yes, shipping begins right away. £229 including VAT will land you a ...

    Apple definitely tried hard to kill the stylus, and then decided to bring it back with the Apple Pencil. Many artists consider this to be a killer tool for the iPad Pro, even when compared to other computer digitizes. It by no means confirms that this is the best stylus in the market, and it seems that Apple knows this. Apple has just filed a pair of patents that show us a new Apple Pencil that's touch sensitive, and these sensors adapt to whichever hand you're using as well. The patent application is called "Stylus with touch sensor." The device even includes motion sensors, allowing you ...
