    ZTE isn't messing around when it comes to the US smartphone market, and earlier this week the manufacturer made its battle plan official, announcing the all-new Axon handset. With top-shelf specs ranging from its quad HD screen, to Snapdragon 810 SoC, to all the RAM you could possibly hope to use, there's a lot to love here, and that's just on the hardware side. ZTE also makes some smart calls with software, not bogging the phone down with a bloated skin. Understandably, we're looking forward to the Axon's retail debut later this month. You can pre-order the Axon now for just about $450, ...

    With the introduction of iOS 9, OS X 10.11 El Capitan, Apple Music, split-screen iPad multitasking, and all the other upgrades to apps and features along the way, WWDC has already given us enough Apple news to keep even the most die-hard fan satisfied. But what if your tastes lie more over on the Android side of the tracks? While today may very much be Apple's day, we haven't forgotten about you Android users, and have just the thing to let you know we're still thinking about you: our latest smartphone giveaway. If you've been following our contests for the past several weeks, you'll know ...

    A couple weeks back, Pocketnow readers had the chance to win an LG G3 – actually, a pair of chances, and we gave away a G3 both to readers who were able to solve a riddle with hints sprinkled throughout the week's posts, and listeners who helped spread the word about the Pocketnow Weekly podcast by leaving an iTunes review. Those two G3s are on their way to those lucky winners right now, but we're not done yet: we've got another LG G3 that's burning a hole in our pocket and we'd love to send it your way. At stake is another 32GB LG G3 for AT&T. Sure, it's last year's LG flagship, and ...

    Last Monday we announced one of Pocketnow's latest giveaways, giving one lucky reader the chance to win a 32GB LG G3. With its quad HD display, Snapdragon 801 processor, and laser-assisted autofocus, the Android smartphone is still one serious piece of kit. But how to give away such a prize? We've had our share of simple raffles here on the site before, so this time we thought we'd spice things up a bit – maybe ask you to work a little for the prize, just so winning is that much sweeter. To that end, we spent last week hiding five clues in other posts here on Pocketnow, one a day. Each ...

    If there's one thing we love more at Pocketnow than taking home some new smartphones ourselves, it's hooking our readers up with that same hardware. It's been entirely too long since we got into a spate of smartphone giveaways, and as we were thinking back on last summer's series of contest after contest, we found the impulse overpowering us: it's absolutely time we started handing out some phones again. With no further ado, let's get this party started, and we have just the phone to do so, the LG G3 (32GB variant). Sure, the G3's no longer the new hottness it was last summer (when we also ...

    Last year, Huawei delivered a wearable that pulled double duty, going well beyond the normal feature set of fitness trackers to offer one that transformed into a Bluetooth earpiece: the TalkBand B1. This year the manufacturer came to MWC ready to show off its more refined take on the concept, launching the second-gen TalkBand B2 and coming back with the same sort of hybrid design. We've already had the opportunity to go hands-on with the wearable for ourselves, and now it's your chance to get involved, as we team with Huawei Device USA to give away five TalkBand B2 wearables to lucky ...

    Experiencing a new smartphone is great, but what's even better is getting the chance to try one out before anyone else. Do you read about all the leaks we get to see with a sense of longing, wondering why that couldn't be you with insider access to development hardware? Are you a little jealous when we get our hands on pre-launch devices in order to bring you a first-person account as soon as they launch? We totally don't blame you. The good news is that we're not bringing this up just to rub it in your face. Instead, we want to help let you in on the action, too. Last month Huawei ...

    Update:Thanks to everyone who entered! Zikica-Stevens, Gary, and Alman-Najar, check your emails, because you've got some Minuum codes on their way. Show someone Minuum's linear keyboard for the first time, and you're bound to see some head-scratching. “That's a keyboard? Where are all the buttons?” The design may be unlike anything many of us have come across before, but spend a little time using the software, as our departing Taylor Martin did this past summer, and you may well find yourself quickly coming around to this utterly unusual method of text entry. This week, Minuum's got a ...

    Android is a fantastic mobile platform. Part of the reason for its popularity is due to the huge number of devices available to run it, with new devices being added all the time. It gives the Android user the freedom to choose the device that suits their individual needs rather than having to conform to a single cookie cutter solution. Well, it’s time to get your decision-making hats on because, for a limited time only at the Pocketnow Deals Store, you can enter the Choose Your Own Android Giveaway for a chance at winning a top of the line Android smart phone!

    No matter which cut-off date you go by, at this point summer 2014 is indisputably over. That also means that Pocketnow's Summer of Giveaways has drawn to a close, but not before hooking a number of lucky readers up with some brand new smartphones, including a couple with one-of-a-kind custom skins. We'd love to bring some more offers like that back in the future, but for the moment, those week-in, week-out giveaways have drawn to a close. The good news for you is that we've still got other ways you can become a winner, thanks to some of what's going on over at our Pocketnow Deals store. ...

    Updated with the high-quality edited version of the podcast, which you can stream or download down below (or through your favorite podcatcher app). We hope you enjoyed; we'll check back in with you next week! If you ask us, the first thing you should do on iPhone launch day is take a long, hard look at the competition. Not because the iPhone is a bad product, but because everyone else tends to step up their game when Apple brings a new phone –or two– to the yard. And that's more true than ever this year. With that in mind, we'll talk about all kinds of smartphone and smartwatch ...

    With IFA 2014 dying down, it's about to return to business as usual in the smartphone world. Well, after tomorrow's little event from this upstart smartphone maker out west, anyway. But now that you have a chance to take a breather and let all the hardware launches of the past week start to sink, we wanted to remind you of a contest you've still got time to enter. Last Monday, we started our latest round in the Don't-Tell-Us-It's-Almost-Fall-Yet Pocketnow Summer of Giveaways. With the help of those skin-making geniuses over at dbrand, we're hooking a lucky Pocketnow reader up with a brand ...

    If you've been following Pocketnow so far this summer, no doubt you've come across one or more of our smartphone giveaways. We've been handing out phones, accessories, and invite codes since June, often announcing the new giveaway each Monday. Does that mean we've got a new one for you today? Well... no, but there's a good reason for that. See, last week, when we started our latest contest on Monday, we decided to keep entries open for a little longer than normal, extending them for over a full week. That means there's still time to win, which is exactly why we're putting up this reminder. ...

    We got a phenomenal response from this contest, but the time for entries has past. Thanks to everyone who took the time to participate, but only one of you can be our winner, and it's going to be Benjamin Levy who goes home with a Blackphone to call his own. Everyone else, keep following Pocketnow for our news of our next contest. Maybe you'll be the lucky winner next time around! ___ Last week came and went without a new opportunity to win anything as part of our ongoing Pocketnow summer of giveaways. After the weeks of handing out phones, invite codes, and accessories, we needed a brief ...

    "Hey where's my Pocketnow contest this week?" What, you thought just because we're in the midst of this summer of giveaways that meant having something running every single week? Wait - that's is what we're supposed to be doing? Ah, nerts. OK, well while we were planning to have our next giveaway start a couple days back, we had to put that one on ice for just a little bit, and it will finally kick-off this coming Monday (so don't forget to check back then). But to hold you over, we've still got some existing stuff that's still running, so this is as good a time as any to remind you of one ...

Thanks to our new Blackphone review devices, we're already halfway off the grid ... or at least, halfway buried under Post-It notes littered with passwords, which is almost the same thing. Before we get too stealthy, though, we're hosting us a little show. Some of you might know it as the mobile technology podcast that's gone 108 episodes without missing a single week (accurate). Others might know it as the last ...

    Smartphone owners are used to pledging their allegiance to a platform – are you an Android man, cozying up with Google and all that Play Store content, or do you find Apple and its iPhone series more your speed? Hell, maybe you've just got to be different and you're backing Windows Phone. Gamers face similar decisions, committing themselves to the latest console of their choice, and reaping the benefits of (or feeling the pain of missing out on) exclusive titles. Well, if you've been on the fence about going with Sony or Microsoft (or Nintendo, if you've just got to be contrarian), we'd ...

    Pocketnow's already synonymous with insightful editorials, in-depth hardware reviews, and informative videos. But giveaways? We're getting there! Earlier this month we formally kicked-off our summer of free stuff with a one-of-a-kind Sony Xperia Z2 featuring a custom Pocketnow skin, and those offers have continued over the following weeks, most recently with that Huawei Ascend Mate 2 4G LTE contest we just wrapped up. And while there are more hardware giveaways waiting in the wings (stay tuned), we also just cut the ribbon on the brand new Pocketnow Deals site only a few days back. When ...
