    When it comes to cellular phones, removable batteries are nothing new, even the very earliest phones had a battery that you could remove and replace. Historically, this was more a necessity than a convenience. Until the last few years, battery technology suffered from various limitations that necessitated their ability to be removed and replaced fairly frequently. For their size, energy capacity wasn't all that great. Charge times were slow, and discharge rates were fast. Over the years, these batteries even developed a "memory" that reduced their capacity due to the buildup of tiny ...

    One of the primary reasons sites like Pocketnow exist is to review and evaluate the vast array of smartphones on the market at any given time, compile our findings, and report our thoughts and observations back to you. We do the hard work and heavy lifting so you can make the most informed decision when you go to by a smartphone for yourself. If this were a static, unchanging list, the task would be fairly easy, but it's not. The smartphones available t0 buy at any given time can easily rise into the dozens for mainstream devices, and into the hundreds when looking at everything that's ...

    Samsung just unveiled the all new Galaxy Note 4 - the phablet that all other phablets aspire to beat. At least that's apparently what Samsung thinks, and wants the industry to believe. At its event, Samsung seemed to treat the Note 4 with much more care - and even reverence - than than it gave the Galaxy S brand. Currently Samsung holds its own with the Galaxy S, and it needs to expand. That's the key in this industry: expand, or die. If you're not making new products in new product lines, which helps to pull in new customers, you're not going to be around long. Samsung has been in ...

    On August 27, Samsung announced the Gear S, a smartwatch we're expecting to meet in person at the upcoming IFA 2014, a smartwatch that supports 3G on your wrist, with the help of a SIM card slot. The two-inch curved Super AMOLED display give it a unique touch, while the smartwatch itself comes with a flexible band out of the box. However, today Samsung announced an extension of its partnership with Swarovski, for the "Swarovski for Samsung" collection, which now contains the newly announced Gear S. It's about a Gear S strap, for those of you who love your bling-blings visible; you can now ...

    This coming week, we will be introduced to the latest in a line of reasonably successful phablets. The original Samsung Note arguably helped shape the “phablet” space when it debuted three years ago. It was in and of itself an innovation. Sure, it’s just a smartphone with a big screen, but sometimes the simplest innovations are the biggest (no pun intended) and most successful. And yes, it’s at this point that I grudgingly have to admit that a heart monitor is an “innovation”. Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go vomit. Samsung has done its share of trying out new things over ...

    Samsung's latest mobile products are only just around the corner – the company's anticipated Galaxy Tab S unveiling is scheduled for this evening – but we've also got our eyes on what's further out for the manufacturer, and this morning we pick up some new rumors about a couple products expected to make an appearance at the IFA in Berlin this coming September. Since last year we've been hearing about the possibility of Samsung developing a Google-Glass-like headset of its own. Names like Gear Glass, Galaxy Glass, and most recently, Gear Blink, have been tossed around, and while we ...

    We've already talked about the advantages and disadvantages of 64-bit versus 32-bit when it comes to smartphones and tablets. To recap, 64-bit should be faster and enable the inclusion of more RAM as compared to 32-bit, but the OS and apps will need some fairly heavy work before they'll be able to take advantage of the advancements. Due to that, processor manufactures, app developers, and OS authors find themselves in the classic "chicken or the egg" conundrum: you can't have one without the other. So given the paradox, when will Android support 64-bit chips? Apple now has a 64-bit product ...
