    We've been watching some of these partnerships for years, and other collaborations are new territory for consumers. Phone manufacturers can generate a lot of buzz and generate some healthy headlines when announcing a partnership with a camera company. It's exciting to see a fancy new label printed on the back of our phones, highlighting a photography reputation designed to impress us. A logo is slapped on the side of the box. Companies deliver press releases, but when actually using the fruits of those partnerships, do consumers actually benefit from these licensing deals? Do we really get ...

    Google I/O's keynote ended a few hours ago, and the amount of changes in the event were just too bold to condense within the Pocketnow Daily. This is a different Google, a company that is now showing off a more cohesive result of over 10 years of innovation. From the announcement of Google Assistant, to Google Home, to the enhancements of Android N, there was a lot of information covered at this event. Products like Google Assistant completely challenge the way digital assistants work today, and it serves now as the backbone for everything else that Google is doing. Let's not bore you with ...

    You know the drill. A new phone launches. We all go crazy with commentary and videos for a couple weeks. Then, we all move on to the next new phone. How a phone ages is an important part of discussing smartphone performance. Let's revisit a fan favorite. This phone is a beast. This phone is a tank. This phone is a monster. LG was in an odd spot following the launch of the G Flex 2. Performance concerns surrounding the Qualcomm 810 eclipsed the discussion on both HTC and LG at the beginning of 2015. Following that debacle, LG's next phones, the G4 and V10, both utilized less powerful (but ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    The debate between iPhones and Android phones has existed since their inception, but choosing between the best has never been more complicated. It only takes a few visits to any public area to notice just how popular the iPhone is. Apple’s marketing power is iconic, and its results can be seen in the wide acceptance of most of its products. The story is a very different for HTC. The company is known for pioneering the first Android phone, and also for its design and innovation, but its meager marketing has left its products with little credit for it. Comparing these in sales figures ...

    Most of the discussion on Huawei's latest phone has focused on photography and video performance. No surprise there, as the dual camera experiment, a joint collaboration with boutique manufacturer Leica, is an interesting development. We're a bit guilty of that too, as our first video after unboxing, was to take that camera for a spin. The P9 is more than just a pair of camera sensors however. Our review unit arrived with a 5.2" 1080p LCD, 3GB, 32GB of storage, a Kirin 955 octa-core chipset, and a 3,000mAh battery. This processor was something of an unknown, as this is the first time we've ...

    If you like your leaked renders with a little movement, well, today's your lucky day. Steve Hemmerstoffer of NowhereElse.fr has put out a video tour of the computer-aided designs for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus he leaked yesterday, published in conjunction with UK site uSwitch. The blueprints from Apple subcontractor Catcher Technology we see are, again, of Apple's January design stage — thus, we don't have anything new to add to what we wrote about the previous leaks. But to recap the leaks: both phones drop the headphone jack and stick with a single speaker both phones have ...

    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 ...
