    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 ...

    What's there to a name anymore? Just a letter and a number and you're all set, right? Well, each unit kinda sorta really matters. In this case, LG has decided to bump off the "L" and "F" letters for its mid-range models this year and is adding something more than just a "V" to its vocabulary: K. What's up with the K7 and K10? Well, both have pretty middling specs, but modernized design standards. And if you or someone you know is looking for a decent phone in 2016 on a tight budget, you might want to consider at least the K7 for T-Mobile and MetroPCS. Find out more in our hands-on video ...

    While Martian's offerings in the smartwatch world do look a tad alien to what we consider the norm, they have their own ways of doing what many consider to be the job of a smartwatch — deliver notifications to you and help you spend less time with your phone. The Martian Notifier was close to being our favorite Pebble/Apple Watch/Android Wear alternative just short of the Runcible — but that thing hasn't even come out yet. And the company's now expanding upon its concept of merging a traditional watchface with a single-line display. This year at CES, the company's bifurcating its ...

    These smart glasses will not get you kicked out of a theater. At least immediately. Carl Zeiss makes glass for cameras big and small (think Lumia) and has been doing so for time eternal. But it's 2016 and in the world of interconnected thingamajiggers with the slow-moving elephant of Google Glass, there's no more getting by just making glasses anymore. You have to innovate. That means being able to project apps and augmented reality elements to the glasses and then — this one's important — make sure that the technology you use to do all of that with can be used on any pair of ...

    A bit of tangential nostalgia for you: on the last episode of first iteration of the television show Call For Help from the old ZDTV-turned-TechTV network, there was a segment called Cat's Clicks where co-host Cat Schwartz gave an interesting "click-to." There was a last minute addition to the segment: a pair of custom-molded earphones from Ultimate Ears that cost about $500. Today, Ultimate Ears's product line consists of three Bluetooth speakers. That was some 12 years ago. At CES 2016, an Indiegogo project called Decibullz attempts to fill the niche of the fit-to-your-lugs earbuds ...

    If you're into Iggy Azalea songs of yesteryear (who the heck isn't, am I right?), you'll notice that we've been getting a little fancy up in this place. Huawei first classed up its Huawei Watch for women, now Samsung is putting some classic touches on its Gear S2 Classic. If you're familiar with our coverage — which includes a full review of the Gear S2 — you'll find spare change to the internal specs, if any at all. You're also going to see the same knurled and rotatable bezel as you have before on the Classic. Not the same, though, are these finishes — and if you read the title of ...

    Samsung wants to put out professional-grade tablets to the market and it wants people to buy them. This year, that means kicking out its Android and TouchWiz and moving in full-blown Windows 10. The Samsung TabPro S steps away from the ATIV and Galaxy Tab brands to launch into what seems to be a very crowded field these CES days: versatile Windows tablets. A 6.3mm-thick magnesium alloy chassis holds in a 5,200mAh battery, 4GB of RAM, a solid state drive (128GB or 256GB) and an Intel Core M3 processor. Not bad on most counts, but further review is required on our end. With the Super AMOLED ...

    After being China's darling debutante in mobile last year, we already see the LeTV hardware brand making headway around Asia. It's now kicking down the doors of the United States with a new league of smartphone and a new chipset from Qualcomm. Let's be clear: the LeTV Max Pro, while being ostentatious in its promotions, its name and its presence (a 6.3-inch quad HD screen will do for "big"), will be somewhat different coming to the United States than the Chinese model we had our hands on today. That said, many of the internals like the Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM, a rear camera packing in ...

    It's a mouthful of a title, but it's mouthful of a tablet. And an earful. And ... well, you'll see. CES 2016 has been an interesting space for Huawei to extend its branches. It announced a couple of phones and a couple of smartwatches, but it also announced a tablet. A premium design tablet. Color us shocked. Want more premium? How about some iPad Pro-esque speakers? Four of them, with harmon/kardon enhancements. It's not a surprise Huawei's pushing this aspect center stage. And why not, throw on an digitized stylus, too: that M-Pen might just be perfect for some limited split-screen ...

    Update: We have learned that the "Jewel" model case size is 44mm, to fit the cubic zirconia crystals onto the case. For people who deign to accessorize, you're probably male and don't care too much about details. Hey, some of us at Pocketnow are guilty, too. But for jet-setting, tech-savvy women who want to join in on this smartwatch revolution, your attention may come to bangles, the Apple Watch (because Apple), or the Gear S2. If you've been looking for some Android Wear watch options specifically, well, they've been hard to come by. That is, until the Huawei Watch for Women showed up at ...

    For what we don't get from Huawei *cough*Mate8*cough* ... we get a pretty nifty metallic phone at a price for pennies not too pretty. The GX8's chassis scores a 90 percent grade in metal. There's a Snapdragon 615 — admittedly a tad bit old in the world of mid-range silicon, especially as Huawei used it in its P8 Lite — along with a 5.5-inch full HD display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage which you can max out with a microSD card up to 128GB in size. The back of this baby has an optically stabilized camera AND a fingerprint sensor — two features you don't typically find in ...

    It might be in China. It might be in Europe, the Middle East and Australia. Heck, it might even coming to Mexico! It got certified by the FCC fer cryin' out loud! And yet, the Huawei Mate 8 has not been announced for sale in the United States. That's the news we got from the Chinese OEM's CES 2016 event. But while we might have to wait in suspense for this powerfully large beast — we're talking 4,000mAh of battery capcity, Sony's IMX 296 camera sensor and a six-inch IPS screen weighing in at a hefty 185 grams, here — you don't have to wait for us to give the hands-on treatment of this ...

    For companies with a large global footprint, serving up budget phones can be the bread-and-butter to claiming market share, mind share and attention for the more expensive future release. It's ZTE's hope this time around, anyways. We've had some eyes on some budget materials from Hong Kong's Alcatel OneTouch earlier on with some unique little twists — namely, Windows 10 Mobile. When it comes to the China-based manufacturer, though, we have some different differentiators coming into play for the Avid Plus and the Grand X3. Let's start with the Avid Plus that's headed to T-Mobile and ...

    Update: We'll see you next week at CES 2016 in Las Vegas! That's if we remember to do the podcast in the first place... The stretch between Christmas/Hanukkah and New Year's is a farce. Even with CES 2016 looming on the horizon and PR pitches landing like buzzword-filled mortars at every compass point, getting any kind of work done with a belly full of holiday food and the crackling anticipation of New Year's Eve is just impossible. So for this final episode of the year, we're turning the wheel over to you, listeners and viewers, by taking any questions you want via email and ...
