    In response to quite possibly some of Samsung’s best commercials not loaded with celebrities or Apple venom of late, Cupertino once again takes to YouTube to promote the always-on “Hey Siri” functionality of the iPhone 6s. This newest iAd practically slots between the bizarre “Onions” video from a couple of weeks back and adorkable Cookie Monster-headlined short film released almost two months ago in terms of humor and marketing message effectiveness. Entertainer extraordinaire Neil Patrick Harris returns to rehearse a natural-sounding and “spontaneous” acceptance speech for ...

    The HTC Vive has become such an important focus of the company’s business, that there are even rumors of a branch spin-off recently, but is the Vive truly worth more dedicated focus? Virtual Reality is not just difficult to show off in a video review, but also a hard concept to explain for someone who’s never tested a service. I’ve actually had to invite friends and family to test the Vive because everyone thinks this is similar to a Samsung Gear VR, and there’s simply room for comparison. For starters the HTC Vive is a product designed from the ground up for VR. The words Virtual ...

    We recently produced a full, in depth review focusing on the camera performance of the Huawei P9, where in that review we made the following statement: While we might be concerned to see the smaller f/2.2 apertures over competing phones, on sensors this small, the difference in depth of field blur between f/1.8 and f/2.2 is fairly minimal. We still achieve a nice shallow blur to backgrounds... We got a few comments on that review regarding the above statement about aperture size and how it affects depth of field. Several people felt we were too nice on the Huawei, or were oversimplifying ...

    When choosing your next smartphone, some argue that pure Android is the way to go. The question is if following an ideal is really better than everything else? By now, most of the world already knows about Samsung’s new Galaxy. The company does a tremendous job at marketing its flagships, and our reviews prove that this year, marketing isn’t the only good thing about this phone. By contrast Google is at the opposite end of the Marketing food chain, but at least among geeks, the cult following behind a pure Android experience is strong. Today we decided to test what it was like to live ...

    The most interesting things about Huawei's P9 are the dual camera sensors on the back. This is the first device born of the collaboration between Huawei and Leica, and it's not without a little controversy. While Huawei representatives insist that Leica was an active partner in developing the camera hardware and software for the P9, many are still concerned this might only be a branding exercise. Regardless of the logos on the box, or the lofty certifications referenced, the P9 is an interesting photography experiment. We've seen dual sensor phones before, but none with quite the same ...

    2016 is turning out to be a year for interesting camera experiments. Huawei is the second company this year to use dual rear cameras on a flagship phone. Unlike the LG G5, which has a standard camera and an extreme wide angle shooter, the P9 has two cameras with the same view, but with different tasks for color and light. The primary camera takes color photos just like any other smartphone might, but the second sensor only shoots in black and white. This monochrome sensors is designed to maximize light and detail. It's something of a tech metaphor, meant to perform similarly to how the ...

    Water resistance, ubiquitous Samsung Pay support, and a phenomenal camera. Those are just three of the Galaxy S7’s major selling points, and although they’ve been highlighted before in TV ads and various other publicity stunts (one in particular), there’s no such thing as trying too hard to stay ahead of the fast-growing competition. Well, there is, but as it so happens, Samsung’s three latest 60-second-or-less commercials effortlessly manage to be charming, adorable and effective. All without a single celebrity cameo. What’s a little sad is, with wasteful Lil Wayne and chill ...

    You might know Casey Neistat. He's a logged a bunch of calories. He's ridden on Citi Bikes. He's snowboarded through Midtown. All of that's on YouTube. Neistat co-founded Beme, Inc. as a social technology company. And Beme is the name of the app it has officially come out with. It's been on iOS for a while now as a beta, but it's now finally out for reals. And it's on both the App Store and the Google Play Store. If you're into video blogging, prepare to be shaken. If you're not, you too. Beme doesn't have a viewfinder. It turns off the screen while you're recording a video. All you have ...

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 ...

    Apple is at the beginnings of a transition. The high end smartphone market is maturing. Mac sales continue to fall. Cupertino supports two different computing environments between OSX and iOS. Pushing to find new sales growth, Apple is working to bring more professional features to iOS instead of adding multi-mode or touchscreen options to MacBooks and iMacs. We now have our hands on the second iOS "Pro" product following this philosophy. The 9.7 retains most of the design of the iPad Air 2, but includes more storage, better cameras, a new display, quad speaker sound, and support for the ...

    Doing a video about VR is complicated in its own way, but when you talk about the HTC Vive, well, one video might not be enough. Just like in the case of the average gaming computer, there is nothing simple about the HTC Vive. The Fedex guy needed a trolley to drag the box to my doorstep, not because it’s heavy, but because it’s huge. Cutting through the external cardboard, you’re greeted with a large dark package that’s held in place by foam and plastic protection. The added padding padding may seem to be overkill, but it starts making sense when you dig within. The Vive’s box ...

    The HTC 10 is a work in progress. At the time this video was produced, it was still only available for pre-order, and units had not yet shipped to consumers. Given that reviewers had access to pre-release software, we wanted to see how HTC would respond to early criticisms focused on camera performance. This camera represents a significant departure from last year's One m9. Like Samsung, HTC is also walking away from the megapixel wars, reducing resolution to 12MP, while increasing sensor size. This brings us back to the Ultrapixel moniker, and those larger individual dots are designed to ...
