    Pocketnow Daily gets an average of 300 to 500 comments a day, and sometimes even a thousand. We’d like to thank you all for participating in our question of the day, and we love your feedback so much, that we decided that since we can’t respond to ever single one of your comments, we should at least feature a couple in a weekly video. 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 ...

    The LG G5 is expected to be one of the hottest phones of 2016. There are tons of rumors that point to the company playing with a bold new design that might be smart enough to cause some disruption in the market. LG continues to be one of the few companies, if not the only one that still believes in bringing power-user expandability to its users. Hopefully the LG G5 will prove that the company will continue that legacy, and if not, then it proves that the company needs to re-think its approach for the future. Watch our video to learn more, or read up on it here as well:

    Expertise is something earned. It's also a big marketing tool. With OPPO having some eight years on the mobile market, it has been able to innovate in hardware time and time again. But its flamboyant output has typically been outside the scan of those with thinner wallets. And that's where the company has to make do with the basics and punch up a spec or two in the hopes of being the right kind of "different." The F1 tackles the mid-range with internals in line for 2016, a so-so screen that doesn't fair so well in sunlight and some cameras. Here's the catch: the rear unit has 13 ...

    Update: Hopefully you'll forgive the "airport" audio quality in the latter half of the show. Thanks for being patient. Fitbit gets a fancy new band, manufacturers old and new are picking up the Windows Mobile mantle and a phone that'll probably never see the light of day changes up its OS. It must be another week in mobile technology, and that must mean it's time for another episode of our little pow-wow. Join us as we get ready to get techy on episode 186 of the Pocketnow Weekly!

    Most new device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review. Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the same time. It’s a huge frenzy, commenters go nuts, and it’s a giant explosion of frantic opinion-sharing activity. For about … a day. And then it all goes away. Sure, there’s followup coverage as people find bugs and hidden features, but after that initial blast, not ...

    We're none of us fans here of intentionally breaking gadgets, but when a phone's main selling point is durability, we try to find ways to test those claims. The tricky thing about rugged phones, there is no such thing as a truly indestructible device. If you try to break a rugged phone, eventually you will succeed. Still, we can learn a lot about how this gadget handled the abuse we lobbed at it. The Kyocera Duraforce XD gives off a monster first impression, but how well does that thicker, reinforced casing, stand up to tough conditions? Will the waterproofing fail after a bad drop? We put ...

    As efforts like After The Buzz, the Pocketnow Weekly and Empty Nest demonstrate, we’re constantly searching for fresh ways to review mobile technology. The newest product of those efforts is Pocketnow’s “Review Rebuttal” series, in which a member of our team is assigned to test a smartphone or tablet that’s already gone through our standard review process. While the resulting video or editorial doesn’t affect the “official” Pocketnow review score, we hope it provides added context by showcasing an editor’s personal opinion, rather than a team-wide consensus. We call it ...

    The DuraForce XD is an AT&T exclusive, so while the packaging isn't going to be particularly impressive (we all know that orange box), what's inside is pretty audacious. Kyocera has built a monster phone here. The specs sound pretty familiar, with a 5.7-inch 720p LCD and Qualcomm 400 series CPU, but the casing surrounding that tech is pretty intense. I can't say I've ever played with a rugged phablet before, and this might be the largest phone I've ever been tasked to review. The chunky build provides MIL-STD 810G drop and shock protection with an IP68 water resistance rating. It's ...

    The OPPO F1 does not have an engine. It does not pull hairpin turns. And it most certainly will not crash into a heaping pile of flames. But you can drive its eight processor cores up to 1.7GHz. It's manageable enough in the hand to toss around. And while it is possible to crash it in a sense, the software on this thing will try very, VERY hard to not let you do so. As if we already had our fill of auto jokes from the LG V10, this Chinese upstart seems to have added... fuel to the fire. Okay, we'll stop now. The F1 has jumped into a mesmerising mash of metallic mid-range monsters in 2016. ...
