You’d wonder how smart a smartwatch really is if you really can’t pair it with more devices than just one, and ever since Samsung launched the Galaxy Gear, one of our biggest complaints was that we simply couldn’t use it on most of the existing and popular Galaxy smartphones in the market. Android 4.3 is required for the Galaxy Gear to work, and that’s rather unfortunate since Samsung hasn’t really been famous for timely updates in the last two years. If you wanted to use that Galaxy Gear, you were really forced to buy a Galaxy Note 3 along with it, and [...]

Phones are expensive. It’s ironic but true. I find it odd that the average computer can be much more affordable than the average smartphone. Shouldn’t this be the other way around? If we were to judge the cost of building a computer in comparison to a smartphone, computers are bigger; they require more powerful technology to work, so in basic but un-researched logic, smartphones shouldn’t be as expensive as they are. The reason why we pay so much money for them is because there are too many third parties involved in the smartphone industry, and because they’re [...]
