    What's on your phone? Perceived as excessive mobile users, we here at Pocketnow get asked this question more than just about any other question. The thing is, not all of us are heavy users. And even those of us who are don't necessarily rely on a bevy of applications to get us through the day. On the flip side, some of us hoard applications and never use them. Some of us install upwards of 100 applications and use most of them on a regular basis. Most of us, however, reside somewhere in the middle. So what do the Pocketnow editors have on their phones? Which applications do they deem ...

    When you stop and consider the world we are living in, it’s a fascinating time to be alive. In the span of a few short decades, we have gone from bag phones permanently installed in a car, to people that carry around two of the same things in one pocket. We’ve gone from the phonebook to Google, and from 411 to…well Google. Technology has exploded all around us and left in its smoky wake a society that is all at once smarter and faster because of these devices we carry. But it wasn’t always like that. No sir. Once upon a time, a Blackberry was a status symbol and a PDA was in a ...

    A good question came up on Twitter not long ago. It was one that I couldn't rightly answer. What is everyone on the Pocketnow team using as a daily driver these days? So many new phones have come out, allegiances have changed back and forth. Is Michael using a review device or is that personal? No one ever knows any more. So I brought in the team for a little bit of a confab. We put our phones out on the table and talked about them a little bit. We discussed the whats and the whys and even a couple of hows. That's where things got weird. But anyway, some had just one phone; some of us, ...

    We are teetering on the brink of smartwatch design. From fitness tracking, to notifications, we are just now learning what's possible in the wearable, and especially in the smartwatch field. Wearable technology is still in its infancy and we get to watch it grow up, crawl and take its first steps. If this were a baby, these would be really exciting milestones. Unfortunately, this is technology and we want our tech to grow up fast and awesome and if at all possible, yesterday. With a virtual avalanche of smartwatches ready to fall into our midst, we wanted to take some time and talk about ...

    It's impossible to deny the multitude of amazing things we've been given from the sheer idea of mobility – smartphones, tablets, agile operating systems, literally millions of mobile applications, amazing time-waster games, digital movies that can be watched from literally anywhere, and instant access to Internet from practically anywhere on the globe. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. The last decade, from a technology standpoint, has been one of the most impressive in recent human history. The things manufacturers have accomplished were mere fantasy just decades ago. And the ...

    Black Friday. In the States those words either conjure up a wondrous land filled with deals, bargains, and amazing prices -- or a horrific panic swimming through a sea of ruthless bodies scrambling to scoop up the severely limited stock of whatever item has enticed those crowds to assemble. All of this follows the one day out of every year that is set aside specifically to remember all that we have and are thankful for. The irony of these two days positioned back-to-back is beyond description. But we're not here to lecture you about your post-holiday buying-binge. No, we're here to help ...

    Smartphones are capable of doing many things few thought possible just years ago: make payments, interface with watches or cars, provide data speeds faster than most home Internet connections, run several applications at once, and, over time, learn important things about their owners. It's a strange world, indeed. But Motorola made an interesting (and valid) point during its marketing push for the Moto X. While smartphones have become more capable and powerful, they haven't actually become any smarter than before. In fact, they're actually quite dumb. And if you think about it, there are ...

    Accessories. We use them every day. Or we don't. They complete out mobile lifestyle, or they go ignored. They allow us to more effectively use out mobile tech, or they're too cumbersome to contemplate. As it turns out, with our team it's a pretty wide spectrum that we fall into when it comes to accessories. This is probably the most divergent set of opinions our team has shared. And whether we use them or not, believe in them or not, we sure do like to talk about them. And talk about them a lot. Whether it's bluetooth, audio, game play, or cases, chances are someone uses something. So, ...

    Regardless of what kind of smartphone you use, one of the main ways to customize it and add a touch personality is through the application of a wallpaper. For those of you who have been living under a rock, "wallpaper" on your smartphone or tablet is much like that for your desktop computer -- an image that sits behind your icons. Finding good-looking wallpaper can be a challenge. Tastes vary and images range from "huge" to "tiny". Just where can one go to get beautiful wallpaper for their phone? Here's what the staff at Pocketnow has to say. Adam Doud Contributing Editor Wallpapers (and ...

    One of the most common questions we at Pocketnow are asked is generally about what devices we carry. It's a valid question. With devices piling up on our desks and being delivered week in and week out, most of us are prone to changing phones more than … just about anyone else. We guess you could say it comes with the territory. So what phones are we carrying? What do we have in our pockets … now?  Answering the question definitively is futile, as most of us will be using different phones in a week, tomorrow, or by the time we publish this piece. Alas, we are here to serve and these ...

    The cloud is becoming more integrated into our daily lives. We send and receive emails, coordinate our schedules, and even backup and share our photos using the ever-expanding "cloud". The "cloud", however, is a very big place, its definition can be quite ambiguous, and there are many companies offering cloud-based solutions. Many of us use an email provider that lets us not only send and receive messages through their service, but read, search, organize, and reply through any browser in the world -- all thanks to the cloud. The cloud even let's us watch movies, listen to music, and even ...

    The Lumia 1020 continues to be one of the most talked about phones, despite the handful of newer phones being announced and made official. Its camera puts the phone on a pedestal and in a league of its own. We've reviewed it, we've written about it, and we've shot various videos on it. We're also in the process of comparing the two 41-megapixel smartphone cameras against one another in an in-depth camera comparison. But after a few weeks of several Pocketnow editors carrying the Lumia 1020 as a personal phone, how do we feel about it, individually? Below are the thoughts of Adam Lein, ...
