Galaxy S7 Vs HTC 10

2016’s two best Android phones face off in a real-world speed test

2016’s two best Android phones face off in a real-world speed test

By on May 18, 2016 at 9:22 AM.

The brand new HTC 10 is the most powerful phone in the world by a landslide. It’s not even close. And then you have Samsung’s Galaxy S7 edge, which is the most gorgeous phone ever, in addition to being fast and powerful. Oh how I wish I could ditch my iPhone 6s and switch to the S7 edge, but alas. If you purchase either of these two flagship Android phones, you can rest assured that you’ll posses one of the finest smartphones ever crafted. In fact, even when all is said and done in 2016, these could end up being the best Android phones of the year.

We know they’re both spectacular on paper, but which flagship Android is the fastest in real-world use? More →

Nokia is back, and this time it’s making the Android phones we’ve always wanted

Nokia is back, and this time it’s making the Android phones we’ve always wanted

It took eons, but Nokia is finally making the Android phones we always hoped it would make. To get here, Nokia had to lose its grip on the mobile business, choose Windows Mobile as its only smartphone OS, and then sell its entire mobile division to Microsoft. But the American software giant was unable to make anything good come out of its Nokia Lumia and Windows Phone brands, turning the acquisition into a failure of epic proportions.

Meanwhile, Microsoft is selling its feature phone business to Foxconn. And Nokia is licensing its name, which it’s buying back from Microsoft, to a company that will work with the same Foxconn subsidiary to make feature phones, Android smartphones and Android tablets in the near future.

The point is, Nokia is finally making Android phones, even if it won’t actually build them More →

Report that iPhone 7 is ‘more complex’ to build hints at exciting new features

Some iPhone fans are already unhappy to hear that the iPhone 7 might be strikingly similar to the iPhone 6s when it comes to overall design. Apple trained us to expect fresh iPhone designs every two years, and recent leaks suggest that might not happen this year. But that’s not a bad thing. In fact, a new report says that the iPhone 7 might be “more complex” to build than any of its predecessors, which sounds like great news and could hint that we can expect some exciting new features in tow.

Leaked OnePlus 3 pic looks like the iPhone 6s and HTC 10 had a lovechild

The OnePlus 3 is probably going to be sold as the next “flagship killer,” a phone billed as being better than any other high-end handset out there and more affordable than other leading devices. But if there’s one thing the OnePlus 3 might not “kill,” it’s smartphone design. A new leak showing what seems to be official press renders of the handset suggest the device is more like the lovechild of an iPhone 6s and an HTC 10. More →

iPhone SE Battery Life

If you care about battery life, there’s only one iPhone you should buy

If you care about battery life, there’s only one iPhone you should buy

Larger screened iPhones are great and all, but Apple, ever since the 2014 release of the iPhone 6, spent the last few years completely ignoring the 4-inch form factor. That being the case, the recent release of the iPhone SE — a compact device packed with Apple’s most advanced mobile technologies and hardware — has been a long time coming. And for many who have been eagerly and patiently awaiting a worthy successor to the iPhone 5s, the iPhone SE release was long overdue.

While it’s easy to ignore the iPhone SE as nothing more than a smaller version of the iPhone 6s, the iPhone SE is actually a standout device if you care about battery life. And truth be told, who doesn’t care about all-day battery life?

T Mobile Binge On List

T-Mobile just made its Binge On unlimited video streaming even better

T-Mobile’s Binge On service is a handy loophole that lets you stream video from select services without it counting against your data cap. Big players like Netflix and YouTube have already been on board, but this morning, T-Mobile’s rounding out the offerings by adding names like NBC and Univision.

The announcement today added a handful of new participating media outlets, bringing the total up to 80. The biggest names being added are NBC and Univision, which should be good news for fans of SNL or Ninja Warrior. The other interesting move is adding music videos from the likes of Spotify and Tidal onto the Binge On platform.

Galaxy S7 vs. HTC 10: Can either Android flagship survive a professional drop test?

We’re not even halfway through 2016 at this point, but it’s quite possible that we’ve already see the two hottest ndew Android phones that will debut this year. We expect the upcoming Galaxy Note 6 to improve upon last year’s model in every way, the third OnePlus flagship phone is shaping up to be a beast, Motorola’s next Moto X could be the one we’ve been waiting for and the new Nexus phones should be great, but to be honest, we’re not expecting any of those phones to outshine Samsung Galaxy S7 or the HTC 10.

We already know that these two flagship phones are sleek, stylish and remarkably powerful (in fact, the HTC 10 is the most powerful phone in the world), but now it’s time to find out how durable they are. More →

iPhone 7 Rumors Versions

Apple reportedly starts iPhone 7 production with three new models incoming

Apple reportedly starts iPhone 7 production with three new models incoming

Until recently, most iPhone 7 rumors suggested Apple will stock three distinct models this year, including 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models that would be identical aside from screen size, and then a separate 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Pro with a dual lens rear camera and other premium features. But then a new report from a trusted insider a few days ago said that Apple would equip all 5.5-inch iPhone 7 models with a dual lens camera, suggesting there won’t be any Pro version of the upcoming phablet.

But now, a new leak seems to indicate that iPhone 7 production has started and that Apple is indeed making three different phone versions. More →

The worst news we’ve heard so far about Apple’s next major iPhone refresh

The worst news we’ve heard so far about Apple’s next major iPhone refresh

While we don’t seem to know a whole lot of specifics about the iPhone 7, rumors surrounding Apple’s plans for the iPhone in 2017 and 2018 (presumably the iPhone 7s and iPhone 8) have been trickling in with increasing frequency over the past few weeks.

One of the more intriguing rumors we’ve heard about Apple’s 2017 iPhone — likely to be called the iPhone 7s — is that the device will incorporate OLED panels. Initial reports indicated that Apple’s OLED plans were on a 2018 timetable, more recent rumblings from the rumor mill have suggested that Apple recently opted to accelerate OLED adoption in a concerted effort to “offset a predicted stall in iPhone sales.” More →

ZTE Axon 7 Android Smartphone

ZTE’s upcoming flagship could make Samsung worried

ZTE’s upcoming flagship could make Samsung worried

ZTE’s first Axon smartphone was everything we’ve come to expect from China’s no-brand smartphone manufacturers: cheap, powerful, and basically boring. If these leaked specs are true (and the price stays close to $250), this could cause more problems for the status quo.

The specs come courtesy of Chinese telecom regulator TENAA, as spotted by VentureBeat. They’re exactly what you would expect from a $600 flagship Android handset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, 5.5-inch QHD screen, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage (plus more through a microSD slot), a fingerprint sensor, and 20MP/8MP cameras for the rear and front respectively. Oh, and there’s a 3140mAh battery to power the show.
