Samsung is set to release the refurbished Note 7...some time. But has Samsung already missed its window for releasing this device?
Last week, on the Pocketnow Weekly, we talked about the LG V30 and a slide out second screen it might have. Juan Carlos Bagnell Jules Wang had a conversation about flagship phones and established brands and whether or not it was a good idea to muck with those devices. For example, the LG V series is a solid brand, entering its third year of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and suddenly there’s talk of doing something crazy with the flagship. But is it necessarily crazy?Don’t spoil a good thing
On the one hand, you’re messing with success. The LG V and G series of phones are, quite [...]

With the return of unlimited data, we have to ask ourselves if it's a good idea. Sure, it's great for customers, but what about the carriers themselves?
Benchmarks provide us hard data on how well a phone performs. But what does that data tell us? Should we even listen to benchmarks any more?
Smartphone addiction is a thing, but is it something we necessarily need to avoid? In part 2 of our series we look at the "benefits" of the addiction.
Let’s take a moment and step into the future, shall we? When you think about what the future might hold for mobile technology, there are a couple of things that emerge as “futuristic”. I want to address one of those things here, as we decide now whether we’ll be better off with transparent tech in the future. Seems like every time we watch a movie that has anything to do with the future, we’re always seeing these crystal-clear phones and tablets that are basically sheets of glass, or plastic that display information on them. It’s probably the next step after we finally get that [...]

It has been 10 years since Steve Jobs stepped to the stage and changed the world. Is that hyperbole? Sure, but this is an Apple article after all. Just drinking the trillion dollar Kool-Aid. Anyway, like Apple or not, the iPhone changed the conversation in mobile technology for the next decade.

So, you can be an Apple hater, but even the staunchest hater has to admit what the iPhone did to the industry.
So here we are, ten [...]

The Smart Home is here, but is it long for the world? The cost could be prohibitive, but the future is marching forward. Will the Smart Home survive?
We’ve come to a bit of a crossroads lately. It’s like an intersection of bad for the folks at Google and we might just be at the point where we need to make a decision that could affect the future of technology. It’s time to decide what’s going to happen to tablets, and more accurately, Android tablets. This is the elephant that has been in the room for the past couple of years, so maybe it’s time to move the elephant out, so we have room for the Christmas tree.
Android tablets have never been all that popular. Some OEMs have made attempts at Android-powered tablets, but despite [...]
Our screens keep getting bigger and high resolution screens are more common. But some might argue that 1080p is good enough. Are you one of those someones?
