Update: The podcast is up now and will be sent out at 3pm Eastern on Friday.

The HTC 10 makes us wonder if any phone can really be perfect. Galaxy Note 6 rumors are building steam. What might we see on Samsung’s next phablet? With the flagship phone market maturing, we’ll take a look at why people are waiting longer to upgrade their phones?

We’ve been hard at work covering news stories and producing the next generation of phone reviews. We recently started a new series of videos delving deeper into camera performance and phone comparisons, and of course we’ll be tackling your questions and comments. Make sure you’re charged and ready! It’s time for episode 197 of the Pocketnow Weekly!

Watch the video broadcast from 2:00pm Eastern on April 21st (click here for your local time), or check out the high-quality audio version starting this weekend. And don’t forget to shoot your listener mail to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air!
