    The brilliant minds of the vast internet community have come together to think up a futuristic, but realistic product idea in the mobile space and all those ideas have been judged. Now, manufacturer ZTE is ready to head into the second phase of Project CSX — "Crowd Source X," where the "X" means "any mobile device." Almost 400 submissions poured in during a month of discussion before the list got winnowed down to a round of 20, then a top three. All of those ideas had to be what ZTE described as a mobile product that's realistic to build in 2017 and affordable for consumers to buy. Here ...

    Google's kept up one of the longest name games for its next version of Android this year. It did not reveal the full name of Android N at its I/O conference. Instead, it got its fans to contribute some ideas. Well, time's up. We're soon to learn about what "tasty treat" Google will go with for what's rumored to be Android 7.0. Soon, though, is relative. Thanks for your submissions. We’ll reveal the new name in a few weeks! #NameAndroidNhttps://t.co/qLtDZJNe9y — Android (@Android) June 8, 2016 Are we leaving the territory of sweets? We have entries from Nori to New Mexico Chile to Nun's ...

    UPDATE: Congratulations, Justin Reynolds! You win a BlackBerry Priv!  Thanks to AT&T and thanks to everyone who entered! And if you didn't win this one, don't lose hope: our second BlackBerry Priv giveaway still has two days to go – and it's open to the whole planet! • The art of re-gifting is a tricky business. Shortly after landing my current gig as Pocketnow's review czar, I received a Pebble smart watch as a gift – a wonderful device, but also one which I'd already owned for quite some time. Thinking it the perfect match for my bicycle-racing, rock climbing, ...

    OnePlus has had some trepidation in the marketing department over the past couple of years. Sure, the startup had a couple of major blunders which it claimed it learned from, but we still have not seen a promotions tactic that hasn't met controversy. The latest scheme, while supporting a worthy cause, does bring attention to a monetary value gap rather than an ethical value gap. The "Take the Edge off" contest has begun on OnePlus's site with the intent of not only getting your latest Samsung smartphone off your hands in turn for a new 64GB Sandstone Black OnePlus 2, but also giving your ...

    Just a couple weeks from now, HTC is set to announce its latest smartphone, tipped to be the One A9 we've already seen featured in a number of revealing leaks. And as we wait to see if that will be the phone to help start turning the manufacturer's fortunes around, we've got a nice little offer to help scratch your HTC itch. Two weeks back, we kicked-off a sweepstakes to give away a Motorola Nexus 6 to one lucky Pocketnow reader, furnished through the generosity of AT&T. Today we're back with one more chance to win, as AT&T hooks us up with an HTC One M9 smartphone to give away to ...

    The week's drawing to a close, and after a restful weekend, we're looking forward to a week that promises to be jam-packed full of new smartphone hardware: LG's got its V10 event coming up on Thursday, and a couple days before then we've got Google's big Tuesday announcement, where we're looking forward to the launch of the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. We're understandably excited about all those new devices, but before the new Nexus hardware arrives, how about one last shot at last year's Nexus 6? We've brought you news of plenty of Nexus 6 sales these past few days, but there's no sale that's ...

    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 ...

    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 ...
