    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.

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 ...

    You’d be shocked at the amount of requests we get every day of people asking us to recommend a good wearable for fitness. Surely this is the era of smartwatches and fitness trackers, but not all of these products are good enough to address the needs of people who take fitness seriously. As a result, just like we review smartphones and smartwatches, we decided to create a separate segment that only focuses on the fitness capabilities of wearables. This is Pocketnow Fitness. -- We've gotta hand it to Inateck for two very distinctive things when it comes to their accessories. Number one is ...

    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 know what you're thinking or at least we can suspect it: this is a surprise. It is to us, too. We had our hands-on of this thing all the way back in July, for crying out loud! But since we had an opportunity after the litany of other devices — the good, the bad and the ugly — we got during the fall, we figured that we could set some perspective for one of the Chinese OEMs with intensified American ambitions going forward. ZTE beat its traditional manufacturer cohorts to the punch in this respect, commissioning a US design firm to give the Axon a signature look, a prestige the ...

    You know, I never though I’d ever recommend an Android Wear smartwatch for fitness, but it seems a company finally decided to do something about that as Motorola has just sent us our review unit for the Moto 360 Sport. The Moto 360 continues to be one of the most iconic Android Wear designs in the market, and its new Sport variant intends to bring some of that charm to the road. This actually extends to the packaging, which looks almost identical to the box that we saw in the second generation Moto 360. There are three color variants, but we’re happy to see that our review unit is the ...
