    T-Mobile is serious about this whole "un-carrier" project. We've seen the company defy the existing market model in the US with its contract-free plans, and we've even seen the company extend its carrier-free strategy to most of its devices by not launching these with corporate logos and excessive bloatware. We know you're all disappointed with AT&T for heavily bloating the Nexus 6, so if this is a deal breaker for you, T-Mobile has a solution for you. Des Smith, senior product manager has just taken on Google+ to announce that T-Mobile is planning to give you the Nexus experience that ...

    Samsung hasn't been doing as well as many of us would've expected this year. The company has shown record losses in its last couple of quarters, and today we learn how devices like the Galaxy S5 have led to this. Internal sources claim that Samsung manufactured 20% more devices than the Galaxy S4, and only met its projected sales in the US. Samsung globally sold 40% less GS5s than its predecessor, the GS4. The company barely reached 12 million units sold in the first three months, at a time where it projected 16 million units to sell. In China, Samsung's second largest market by revenue, ...

    Even though Apple has never been a fan of the existing Android spec race, that doesn't mean that the company hasn't done its fare share of innovation in hardware with every existing iPhone. The iPhone 5s became famous for sporting the first 64-bit mobile processor, and that legacy has continued with the iPhone 6 and its new A8 chip. What's interesting is that we keep discovering that the processor has more capabilities than those marketed by Apple. The developers of WALTR, an app that allows Mac users to upload and view video files that aren't supported by iOS devices, have discovered that ...

    Pocketnow 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 ...

    Ten years ago, mobile enterprise communications were dominated by companies like RIM (now BlackBerry) and Microsoft. Even today you'll notice that flight attendants still use a Windows Mobile device to bill your credit card when selling you food on a plane, and the same can be said about almost every company that needs to scan a bar code with a mobile device. The deployment of Exchange servers on other platforms has allowed companies to migrate employee communications to other platforms like iOS, but new reports claim that things are coming back home. CCS Insight is reporting that ...

    Just like there's a daring community of users that can't live without rooting an Android phone, there's also another community that still believes in the need of an iOS Jailbreak. So far, jailbreaking devices isn't getting any easier, and at the same time, the community has slowly lost its importance as Apple keeps addressing the needs for people to Jailbreak. If you've accidentally upgraded your iOS device to iOS 8.1.1, there's hope for you, but with a catch. We now see a video that shows that iOS 8.1.1 has already been Jailbroken, something that shows that there is progress in the ...

    We've praised HTC for making some of the best smartphone designs ever, not just of this year. HTC's design legacy goes back to some of the first award-winning Pocket PCs that got this whole smartphone ecosystem started, and the same continues to happen today. If you thought the HTC One M8 was already gorgeous enough, concept designers are always there to prove there's room to grow. Graphic designer Jermaine Smit has recently decided to take a stab at what he feels should be the design of the HTC One M9 for 2015, and if you have a close look at all things considered, you'd understand why ...

    Tizen was supposed to be Samsung's alternative for smartphones, and instead, all we've seen reach the public are smartwatches running the platform. We have seen the company trying to jumpstart its smartphone plans in the past with the Samsung Z, but we still can't understand why these products never made it to consumers. We could easily assume that Samsung is thinking twice about Tizen on smartphones, but some new leaks prove otherwise. We have some new screenshots that show us what Tizen 2.3 will look like, and as long as you're not a TouchWiz hater, you might like what you see. As a ...

    The iPhone 6 Plus has garnered a lot of fame lately, and that's not for the reasons you'd think. In addition to being Apple's biggest iPhone ever, it's also the one that Apple has struggled most to produce. We've learned that Apple's biggest hurdles are in building the display for the phablet, something that comes as a complete irony since big displays on phones have existed for a while already, and yet, something which Apple is already looking to solve for the future. Bloomberg is reporting that Foxconn's display subsidiary Innolux is investing $2.6 billion in building a new factory to ...

    The HTC One M8 for Windows is more than just another Windows Phone in the market. In addition to bringing the quality in design of the HTC One M8 to the Windows Phone space, it also proves that OEMs can use existing Android hardware to find success in another platform. We still don't have specific details on how the HTC One M8 for Windows has performed in T-Mobile, but as of today, we have another option to buy. After a little hurdle with the launch of the HTC One M8 for Windows earlier this month, T-Mobile has just made it official that the device is available today. The spec sheet and ...

    Samsung has spent the last couple of years improving some existing ideas, like in the case of smartphones, or defying the existing trends with others, like phablets. In both of these cases, Samsung has succeeded, but where the company has failed terribly is in its attempt to give us all a content consumption alternative. Apple currently owns the content consumption business with services like iTunes and the App Store, but Samsung hasn't seen the same success, even if there are more Galaxy smartphones in the market. As a result, we've seen Samsung brush off its Media Hub earlier this year, ...

    Getting your hands on Android 5.0 Lollipop right now is kind of a mess. Most applicable Nexus devices have already received it, some NVIDIA Shield products have also gotten some action, and we should see it rolling to the Google Play edition devices very soon as well. We also know that OEMs like HTC have already committed to pushing Android 5.0 to existing flagship smartphones in the next few months, but if you want an early glimpse of what it'll look like, let's all thank the Internet. We have some leaked photos of what seems to be HTC Sense 6 running on top Android 5.0 Lollipop. We say ...
