    This has been a very interesting year for smartphone technology. Seven years ago we would’ve never thought that smartphones would be as big as they are today, nor that we’d have better display resolution on our phones, than we do on the average television set. This year 2K displays, waterproof technology, stereo speakers, aluminum, and even the emerging LTE Advanced are the new thing, even though only a few smartphone manufacturers are pulling most of these off. After seven years, I finally decided to switch the iPhone as my daily driver because of all these trends. Surely my choice ...

    Love it or hate it, iPhone day is iPhone day. This is one of the most anticipated events of the year, and Apple did what it can do best, which is try to sell its new products to you through its keynote address. Today we saw the company announce the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, two devices which were highly leaked all throughout the year. We also saw Apple announce new services like Apple Play in order to address the mobile payments sector, one that hasn't taken off since its inception under Google's leadership. And yes, there was "One more thing," the Apple Watch, which we did expect to ...

    Love it or hate it, tomorrow is probably one of the biggest days of the year for the smartphone market. Apple may not be the biggest smartphone seller in the world, but the world's most popular smartphone has belonged to Apple almost every year, since its inception in the summer of 2007. There are a ton of rumors of what to expect for Apple's September 9 event, so let's try to place all these rumors into perspective, as it seems that Apple is launching more than one product tomorrow. iPhone 6 Rumors claim that Apple is planning to change everything all over again when it comes to the ...

    We've criticized the approach that many OEMs have taken with tablets and phablets because many have decided to simply increase the display size, and very few have done a smart job at giving you an added level of usability through it. Apple and Samsung have both done an amazing job with their iPad and Galaxy Note lineup, but with the rumors of a 5.5-inch iPhone 6, you'd wonder how Apple is planning to approach its first phablet. Developer Steven Throughton-Smith recently decided to modify Apple's iOS simulator in order to portray what apps would look like on a 5.5-inch display and 2208 x ...

    We are just one day away from Apple's event where we expect the company to launch the iPhone 6. If you've been following the rumors over the last couple of weeks, you'd think the iWatch wouldn't make the cut until a future event, and it turns out that that might be wrong. New leaks claim that the iWatch will be announced tomorrow as well, but it's not until today that we get to see what it looks like. For the last couple of months, all we've seen are concept designs of the iWatch. Today we get the first leaked photos of the device's schematics, and even an extra photo of what is reported ...

    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 ...

    It's pretty much confirmed that Apple will announce its next generation iPhone 6 on its September 9 event. We've even heard some interesting rumors that Apple will also launch the iWatch at the same time. What we weren't prepared for was for is for some rumors that claim that Apple plans to do the same with the iPad Air 2. KGI Securities is claiming various things about Apple's September 9th event. Among these is that Apple is planning to announce the new iPad Air at this event, and not in October as Apple has done historically. Up to this point there were no credible rumors that pointed ...

    Many of you may not remember this, but at the launch of the first-generation iPhone, the average size on a smartphone display was around 2.5-inches. Apple started to create the need for a bigger smartphone display, but the competition has left the Cupertino kids way behind over the last couple of years. Since then, Apple has touted that one-handed usability is the company's priority, and when we go through the leaks of the iPhone 6, it seems that even then, Apple is figuring something out. The same New York Times article that we discussed earlier also sheds some light on what to expect for ...

    If you've kept track of all the recent changes that have emerged on five beta updates for iOS 8, it's clear that Apple needs a wearable in order for some of these services to work. That said, the amount of rumors regarding the iWatch is mixed as some say it'll be announced on September 9, and others claim we won't see it until 2015. Whatever the case may be, we've got new rumors on what to expect. Both the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times have posted rumors on what to expect from the iWatch. To narrow these down on one post, the reports claim that there will be two iWatch models, ...

    Microsoft and its partners are really making a compelling case for the reasons why you shouldn't buy a tablet running a mobile operating system. Just a few months ago we saw some very affordable Dell Venue tablets running a full version of Windows 8 and with price tags that even make the iPad mini look expensive, but this wasn't the end of it. As IFA 2014 continues to wow us with more products for this fall, Acer has just raised its hand with another hot Windows tablet. Acer has just announced the Iconia Tab 8 W, and just before you dismiss it as another Windows tablet to look at, there ...
