    If the way you're grabbing screenshots from your Xbox One currently resembles the way you did it (the media, and everyone else) in the early Windows Phone 7 days (with a camera pointed at your screen), you should be happy to find out that those days are over. The ability to take Xbox One screenshots will be just one of the many new goodies and improvements Microsoft will send to your console next month, as part of the March update. The February update was no slouch either, but there's really "big stuff" coming, aside from Xbox One screenshots (double tap the X button on your controller and ...

    On January 14, about a month ago, Samsung decided to make its first Tizen-powered smartphone official. The phone with a four-inch WVGA screen and a 1.2 GHz Dual Core Processor was only announced for India, initially, and according to industry sources cited by Business Korea, its market performance is better than expected. More than 100,000 units have been sold (the source mentions "people who chose" the phone, so we're quite sure we're looking at sales, not units shipped) since its debut, in India. In Bangladesh, since its February 3 availability, 20,000 units reached their owners, for a ...

    At the end of last year, Google announced the expansion of the Android One initiative; emerging markets were added, like Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka, and now, the Mountain View-based company announces Android One-based devices for Philippines, the sixth market to join the Android One club, in addition to the aforementioned, India, and Indonesia. Google's main partners in bringing Android One to Philippines are local retailers Cherry Mobile and MyPhone, and the phones will be named Cherry One and MyPhone Uno. Android Lollipop will be powering these two devices out of the box, and, to ...

    When it comes to HTC, the upcoming One M9 -- branding recently confirmed -- takes all the headlines in terms of leaked looks, specs, etc., at least until March 1, when the device will become official. Whether it will have a 1080p sibling or the M9 itself will be 1080p is yet unknown, but a set of HTC One M8i specs have been leaked, bringing back last year's flagship to our attention. Upleaks mentions this particular M8 variant, the M8i, which would be exactly identical to the HTC One M8, with just a couple of changes. While measuring and weighing (probably looking too) identical to the M8, ...

    We've been hearing various Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 overheating reports. If these were only tied to Samsung -- remember, Samsung is reportedly ditching Qualcomm because of this purported issue -- we'd understand that the South Korean giant is bringing an excuse in order to push its own processors (as Samsung reportedly wants to enter the SoC game). However, according to a recent report, it looks like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 is actually running cooler than its 801 predecessor. The test setup includes a device available on the market running Snapdragon 801 on Full HD display, and a ...

    Introduction and disclaimer If you are a first time reader of our website you should know that here at Pocketnow we focus mostly on mobile technology.

However, right from the beginning, we have to confess that we're not equally geared up to review headphones, so don't expect to see in-depth frequency analysis, oscilloscope snaps, or other ...

    Sony has recently launched the mid-range Xperia E4, a smartphone powered by a MediaTek SoC. The company has announced MediaTek-powered phones in the past as well, like the Xperia C, but according to a recent report, the company will release smartphones powered by MediaTek more often in the future. More MediaTek Sony smartphones are coming in 2015: entry-level and mid-range Sony smartphones will rely on MediaTek chips, claim "ources at Taiwan's handset supply chain" cited by DigiTimes. While the 3G Sony Xperia E4 might be just the first of many this year, said sources claim that 4G phones ...

    When it comes to bezels, the "bezel-less smartphone" is a controversial topic: some like the frame around the screen, some loathe it, and some simply don't care. This bezel-less smartphone right here -- the Serendipity S7 -- while aimed at those who prefer edge-to-edge screens, shows us how it can be done. No, you can't buy it at the moment; maybe at a later date, as just a few models are available in China, but production will eventually ramp up. With 0.7mm bezels, this 5.5-inch screen-featuring smartphone (Full HD) has the best screen to body ratio, or so it's claimed. Considering ...

    We have a deja vu with this report, as there have been numerous in the past claiming the same thing, but this one's coming from Bloomberg (and its own sources), which gives it a little more credibility, while also lending credence to previous reports that implied the same thing. Bottom line: there will be two different Galaxy phones on March 1, out of which one will have a wrap-around screen. The information is still based on what "people with direct knowledge of the matter" say, and it also includes the fact that both the Galaxy S6, and its wrap-around display sibling, will have metal ...

    The camera on the Samsung Galaxy S5 -- which is one of 16MP -- is already a step-up from the one on the Galaxy S4, at 13MP, but it will be likely outdone by the imaging system on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6. The phone which is expected to be unveiled on March 1 at Mobile World Congress will likely have a 20MP shooter, much like the rumored camera specifications for its main competitor, the HTC One M9. No, Samsung has not officially unveiled this information; it comes our way as a report from SamMobile quoting an unnamed source that claims to have access to a Galaxy S6 prototype. ...

    On February 9, Monday, T-Mobile told users to expect the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for their HTC One M8 devices, but, as that didn't happen, the carrier circled back and gave out a new date: February 10, one day later (yesterday). It finally looks like users are able to get the refresh over-the-air as several HTC One M8 owners on T-Mobile have reported its existence and delivery. You can go ahead and manually check for the Lollipop update, or wait for the OTA notification to hit your phone. It should arrive any time now. Another device, another part of the world: in India, the Samsung ...

    While we're talking about Windows 10 phone, and eagerly waiting for the Technical Preview to become available so that we can take a look under the hood, the situation isn't so rosy when it comes to Windows Phone 8.1, and some T-Mobile devices. While the Lumia 635 and the HTC One M8 for Windows, from T-Mobile's offer, come pre-installed with Windows Phone 8.1, the carrier is not planning on delivering a Windows Phone 8.1 update to any other phone, except the Lumia 521 and the Lumia 925. This means that if you're currently rocking an HTC 8X, or a Lumia 810, your chances of getting the ...

    We're not sure what to believe anymore regarding the Sony Xperia Z4: while some rumors suggest that it will not make an MWC 2015 appearance, others claim the contrary. And if that by itself wouldn't be enough to confuse everybody, a phone which is believed to be the Xperia Z4 (but could really be another phone) has just been benchmarked on GeekBench. This particular device doesn't have a model number eloquent enough to recognise the Z4, but its specifications sure seem flagship worthy. While running the latest version of Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, said device is being powered by an octa-core ...

    As we're hearing more and more HTC One M9 details, more and more of the upcoming phone's different aspects get leaked, rumored, or predicted. If all the things we're hearing are true, then there will be little HTC can announce to surprise us. Luckily, if the past is of any indication, rumors for major devices are a hit or miss (there are exceptions to the rule though). The latest set of HTC One M9 details comes our way from LlabTooFeR (a ROM developer) on Twitter, and contains two separate bits of information, which, if both true, will make the M8 successor faster in terms of Wi-Fi ...

    The South Korean smartphone manufacturer, who is currently in the top position and enjoying the majority of the Android (and smartphone, in general) market could soon become irrelevant, claims a high ranking Motorola executive. Samsung could go away, pretty much like its predecessors who were enjoying the same, comfortable, leading position. Of course, this is a prediction coming from a COO of a company, about other (competing) companies. "Every seven years, the person who’s been on top of the market has gone away", said Rick Osterloh, president and chief operating officer of Motorola. ...

    Despite missing the February 1 deadline (that 90-day window in which HTC committed to deliver the Android Lollipop update to its devices) and publishing a mea culpa, HTC is continuing to do a great job (as long as the delays are kept to a minimum) with the latest bits of Google's mobile operating system. The European One M8 (and its owners) is already enjoying Android 5.0, and some North American units too, and now its time for those who own a T-Mobile unit to get some Lollipop love as well. The T-Mobile HTC One M8 Lollipop update should arrive today, Monday, as an over-the-air update, ...

    If you live in India and you'd like to have a OnePlus One, Amazon is the only way to go, as the phone is only available in the country as an Amazon exclusive. The popular smartphone enjoys great reception on the Indian market, and, Amazon is thanking all customers for "10 great weeks" of OnePlus One business. As such, starting February 10, at 10a local time, you'll be able to grab the OnePlus One without invite. Due to limited stock though, you'd better be among the first ones to secure you own unit. As far as pricing is concerned, you can have the Sandstone Black 64GB option for Rs. ...

    We're not entirely sure what we're looking at in this picture above. Whether it is the Samsung Galaxy S6 leaked (and an S Edge variant), or some Photoshop fun is anyone's guess at the moment. However, if we play along, we can see two phone models, which would play nicely with previous rumors of a Galaxy S6, and a sister-device with a double-curved display towards both sides, the S Edge. The phone on the left is believed, and looks like, the naked Galaxy S6, with what appears to be a protruding camera (most probably, like in the iPhone 6's case, because of a thin form factor and a thicker ...

    About a month ago, the Xbox One February update was launched in preview for certain users, and now it is ready for the masses. Chances are that your Xbox One has already downloaded the update (should your power settings be on Instant On), and you're already noticing some changes. If not, don't worry, as it might take some time for the new bits to reach your console. The refresh brings a lot of cool features to the table, like Controller improvements, Game hubs, Party Chat updates, Custom backgrounds and tile transparency (our favorite), as well as TV updates. Check them out below, as ...

    If you're among those who hasn't already found a way to run Android 5.0 on your 2013 HTC flagship, you should be happy to find out the the official HTC One M7 Lollipop update is rolling out to some users, specifically those rocking the unlocked version, or Developer Edition variant. After yesterday's update roll-out to the Sprint HTC One M7, this announcement, made by Mo Versi on Twitter, reassures users that the company hasn't forgotten about the device, and its promise to deliver Google's latest and greatest (even if it didn't happen within 90 days). The One M8 Lollipop update procedure ...

    We'll be honest with you, we don't know @Ricciolo1, but apparently those who do claim that this specific Italian Twitter user has been right in the past when predicting/leaking smartphones/features. Don't blame us for not taking their words, so, until we hear something official, we'll advise you to be skeptical about this upcoming Motorola flagship as well. The tweet itself doesn't reveal anything, and we wouldn't even know it's about Motorola, if there wasn't a Moto picture attached to tweet. Two bits of information are revealed: one, about an upcoming Motorola flagship, which will be ...

    It's been a while since we've last seen an LG Windows Phone, but according to recent reports, that's about to change, as the South Korean manufacturer is reportedly working on a smartphone powered by Microsoft's mobile operating system. While the smart thing to do would be to for this upcoming device to ship with Windows 10 phone, the documents unveiled by MyLGPhones don't reveal information about the platform version. What they do unveil though, is the model number, which is VW820; from this we can draw the conclusion that it's going to be a Verizon Wireless device (VW). To further ...

    A golden HTC One M9 has been leaked recently thanks to some stills showing off the device, and those images were consistent with what we've seen before. Today's set of HTC One M9 spy shots, while focusing on the new Dot View case, seems to further confirm the general aspect of the device, at least as far as the camera on the back is concerned. Maybe the story is not the Dot View case leaked in the stills, which looks pretty much like the current Dot View case (and probably offers the same functionality), but the fact that the device which it wraps around looks to be the exact same device ...

    Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones is what has been allegedly used to grab these Windows 10 phone screenshots. The official date on which this piece of software will be available to the public is still unknown. What we're looking at in the pictures above an below, however, is allegedly the Preview installation acknowledgement, the Action Center, as well as the System Settings. While the pictures themselves aren't very telling, aside from having a look at what might be in store, we can, however, see that the Action Center will now have not one, but three rows of icons (both toggles and ...
