    If you've noticed, we don't pay much attention to the literature that comes with each smartphone that we unbox. Surely if this is your first smartphone, the best way to start is with the user manual, but more than a few of us have been there and done that a couple of times already. Apple would be on the list of companies that provides you with the least amount of literature possible, but these documents can be quite revealing if leaked ahead of time. If you've followed Apple launches over the last couple of years, you'll notice that the launch date of its products is always used either on ...

    Microsoft hasn't had much fun trying to sell its Windows RT variant of the Surface. We've already discussed how this has nothing to do with the hardware, but really with Windows RT, though there are a few here and there that find the experience to be just fine. If you're in the market for a tablet that runs something that looks and feels like Windows, and your demand isn't for some top-notch professional apps, Microsoft might have just cut you a deal. Microsoft has just slashed $100 off its Surface 2 models, which would leave the basic Wi-Fi 32GB variant at just $350, then for the 64GB ...

    The Moto X+1 should be among us in the next couple of weeks. There is a lot of pressure for this phone to live up to the market acceptance that the Moto X never reached with its unique features. Even if Motorola would decide to only fix a couple of quirks, the Moto X is still ahead of its time, and reports claim that the Moto X+1 will push the bar even further. One of the biggest complaints we had with the Moto X was its camera, and trusted sources claim that Motorola has found a way to fit optical zoom into the camera of the Moto X+1. We're not exactly sure how the company will pull this ...

    IFA 2014 is just a couple of weeks away, and in addition to Sony's press invitations for its press event, we also got a small teaser yesterday that shows us the Sony smartwatch and Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact that are in the works. The biggest problem with these smaller tablets is that they're also mini on the spec sheet, though we do know that Sony doesn't abide by this standard. If you're wondering if this Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is for you, we've got some details on its probable specifications. Asian sources claim that this tablet will sport an 8-inch Triluminos screen with ...

    We're just a couple of weeks away from the rumored announcement of the iPhone 6. The device reportedly entered mass production a couple of weeks ago, so the amount of leaks that show us some finalized hardware will only start to grow. We've seen a couple of leaked backs of what the iPhone 6 will look like, but new leaks show us a finalized phone, or so they claim. New leaked photos from an Asian source show us the iPhone 6 being compared with the iPhone 5. By the looks of the iPhone 6 unit, it's clear that the device is still not as refined as what you'll get on a retail box, but the ...

    With the launch of the iPhone 5s, Apple made a lot of buzz over how its M7 coprocessor would help its A7 processor with additional data. The M7 is intended to relieve the A7 chip from the stress of tracking the motion data that come from the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass, and therefore making it more power efficient. Some still debate its usefulness, but rumors have it that Apple is working on its logical successor for the iPhone 6, and the oddest part is its name. Instead of hearing the name "M8" motion coprocessor, the charts leaked by GeekBar are of a coprocessor named ...

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

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 ...

    Sony has done a great job in regaining the popularity it had with its Xperia brand. Devices like the Xperia Z2 have been met with much praise, and the same can be said about other smartphones the company has launched lately. One of the most anticipated devices this year is the Sony Xperia Z3, and it seems the company continues to prepare for its launch. The Chinese variants of the Sony Xperia Z3 just landed on TENAA, which is the Chinese equivalent to the FCC in the United States. At the moment, we see that model numbers L55t for China Mobile and L55u for China Unicom have been certified ...

    Microsoft hasn't necessarily enjoyed much success with the launch of Windows 8, and the same can be said about its spinoff to Windows RT. Windows Phone 8 has seen some moderate success though, but it's clear that the company is desperate for a positive change in its results. For some, the smartest thing to do would be to start over, that's exactly what Microsoft plans to do under Nadella's administration. Sources close to Microsoft claim that the company is preparing to announce its next version of Windows in an event on September 30th. At the moment, both the date and the name for this ...

    Waiting for the Asus PadFone X to launch on AT&T was rather disappointing. Both companies kept promising the launch, and it took longer than most people were willing to wait. As a result, even though we found this product to be "decent" in our review, it was a little too late to keep the amount of buzz that surrounded it. What's interesting is that it seems that Asus and AT&T weren't finished with what was started, and new rumors point to more products in the pipeline. The Asus PadFone X mini just stopped by the FCC, and judging by the cellular bands that it supports, it's clear ...

    The Internet is flooded with leaks of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, be it in mockups, or in photos of some parts here and there, but it's extremely rare to find 5.5-inch iPhone 6 leaks. There is some sense to this, as rumors claim that only the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is being manufactured at the moment, and with the 5.5-inch model starting production until later this year. Still, Apple is known for being unpredictable every now and then, and new leaks claim that there is progress with the 5.5-inch model. New leaked photos show us the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 rear shell being compared against its 4.7-inch ...

    Apple's reluctance to adopt expandable storage on its iPhone lineup makes choosing the right iPhone a little dramatic. The 16GB iPhone is priced accordingly with other competing smartphones, but choosing more storage means an incredible price bump, and we all know surviving with 16GB of storage is not realistic. One of our biggest concerns is how Apple will approach its storage options for the iPhone 6, and today we get some interesting data about it. GeekBar has been in charge of a ton of iPhone 6 rumors lately, though some of these have been questionable. Today this source has revealed ...
