    Pocketnow Daily gets an average of 300 to 500 comments a day, and sometimes even a thousand.

    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 ...

    The debate between iPhones and Android phones has existed since their inception, but choosing between the best has never been more complicated. It only takes a few visits to any public area to notice just how popular the iPhone is. Apple’s marketing power is iconic, and its results can be seen in the wide acceptance of most of its products. The story is a very different for HTC. The company is known for pioneering the first Android phone, and also for its design and innovation, but its meager marketing has left its products with little credit for it. Comparing these in sales figures ...

    The HTC Vive has become such an important focus of the company’s business, that there are even rumors of a branch spin-off recently, but is the Vive truly worth more dedicated focus? Virtual Reality is not just difficult to show off in a video review, but also a hard concept to explain for someone who’s never tested a service. I’ve actually had to invite friends and family to test the Vive because everyone thinks this is similar to a Samsung Gear VR, and there’s simply room for comparison. For starters the HTC Vive is a product designed from the ground up for VR. The words Virtual ...

    When choosing your next smartphone, some argue that pure Android is the way to go. The question is if following an ideal is really better than everything else? By now, most of the world already knows about Samsung’s new Galaxy. The company does a tremendous job at marketing its flagships, and our reviews prove that this year, marketing isn’t the only good thing about this phone. By contrast Google is at the opposite end of the Marketing food chain, but at least among geeks, the cult following behind a pure Android experience is strong. Today we decided to test what it was like to live ...

    Doing a video about VR is complicated in its own way, but when you talk about the HTC Vive, well, one video might not be enough. Just like in the case of the average gaming computer, there is nothing simple about the HTC Vive. The Fedex guy needed a trolley to drag the box to my doorstep, not because it’s heavy, but because it’s huge. Cutting through the external cardboard, you’re greeted with a large dark package that’s held in place by foam and plastic protection. The added padding padding may seem to be overkill, but it starts making sense when you dig within. The Vive’s box ...
