    Even though mobile payments still don't reach the adoption levels that OEMs would like, Samsung continues to offer the most robust solution. We're not saying that Samsung Pay is better, but we have to give props to the company for allowing you to use the service in almost any terminal imaginable, while competitors force the user to find NFC-capable terminals. Samsung has decided to take its Pay service to a whole new level, but with some restrictions. Samsung Pay has just reached a broader beta for the Samsung Gear S2. It was available as a closed beta a few months ago, but now it seems ...

    Even though Netflix continues to be one of the preferred go-to services for media consumption on the web, the company has made a few controversial changes over the last few years that haven't proven to be popular. These changes have mostly been price hikes, which even though not significant, have definitely not garnered the company good publicity. Today Netflix has announced its Q2/2016 results, and customers seem to be voicing concerns loud and clear. Netflix has just revealed that it wasn't able to reach its planned growth of two million subscribers internationally and 500K in the US for ...

    Even though we already know that the final name for Android N is actually Android 7.0 Nougat, the developer preview is still considered just Android N. We've seen Google boldly take Android to where it hasn't come before with this update, providing useful features like multi-window support as a stock feature, among other improvements. If you're currently rocking the developer preview of the mobile operating system, you might want to hit that update button. Google has just launched the Developer Preview number 5 for Android N. The change log doesn't really specify what changes, but we do ...

    The Moto Z and Moto Z Force have proven to be a very interesting approach to smartphone design from the defunct Motorola, now owned by Lenovo. Surely these aren't perfect as they defy current standards in both thinness and the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack. If you don't agree that features like this one should see a better life, it seems that Moto read the memo. Sources have recently discovered that there is another Moto Z coming to the market, which we assume to be the Moto Z Play. Differences in design are clearly evident in the fact that the 3.5mm headphone jack is included on this ...

    We've been following iOS 10 beta since it's initial launch at WWDC 2016. This is definitely one of Apple's best and most reliable updates ever since the company's initial rebound with iOS 7. We're still months away from the final public release, but the beta program continues to progress. Apple has just launched iOS 10 beta 3 to developers. Sadly the company isn't really specific over what improvements we can find when compared to beta 2. The only thing Cupertino mentions is that these are bug fixes and improvements to previous launches. Beta 2 was notorious for its unreliable battery life ...

    One of the questions I get a lot is what headphones do I use for running, and by now I think you’ve noticed that Jabra is mostly my go to brand. I spend at least two hours at the gym every day, and one of the main reasons why I’ve used a lot of Jabra products is because they sound great, fit great, and have been the only ones that have survived how bad I can sweat. What’s hot about the Jabra Sport Pulse is that these are not conventional headphones. Within these include a permanent heart rate monitor that saves you the need to carry a chest strap to calculate your workouts. Watch our ...

    The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge has proven to not only be one of the best and most powerful phones of 2016, but also one of the prettiest ones. Now that being said, the difference between the words pretty and durable depend highly on the quality of materials, and with this phone your millage may definitely vary. It's been a while since we've done a durability report, but a recent incident with the Galaxy S7 edge just warranted a call back to the series. Most of our experience with the aging of this phone will be part of our After The Buzz segment in a few weeks. This durability will focus ...

    Even though Google hasn't found the amount of consumer adoption that rivals have seen with their smartwatch offerings, it doesn't mean that there isn't a tremendous future in Android Wear. This is not only the most diverse platform, but also the one that has evolved the quickest when compared to others. We've seen a few recent rumors that claim that Google is even willing to build its own smartwatches to compete, and today we learn about them. Today we find some very interesting renders of Google's possible Android Wear smartwatches, codenamed Angelfish and Swordfish. The renders are ...

    Even if we're still waiting for some sort of Android Wear hardware revamp, that doesn't mean that most of the current devices in the market aren't hot enough to warrant serious consideration. Android Wear has only gotten better over the last few updates, proving that it isn't a bad idea to invest, regardless of how old the product is. The Moto 360 in its second generation continues to be one of our favorites, and an interesting option just emerged. A trusted eBay seller has just posted the Moto 360 in its second generation for a crazy $159.99 in both women and men variants. The women ...

    The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is clearly just around the corner. The last few weeks have flooded the feed with news and rumors, even if at the moment there is still a strong debate whether we're just getting one phone or more. The strongest rumors continue to be of a an edge variant, and today we see more details in photos. New leaks show us a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 edge in Onyx Black, confirming some of the rumors we heard about recently with regard to color options. What's most interesting about this leak is not just the added height of the new Note, but also the fact that this device seems ...

    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 ...
