Samsung video explains why the next iPhone is due for a major screen upgrade

Haven’t you heard? The “iPhone 7” is boring, if that’s what Apple decides to call its new 2016 flagship phone. But if the “iPhone 7” name isn’t used until next year, then the new 7 will be very exciting, and it’ll sport a radical redesign. Now, a Samsung marketing video perfectly explains why the iPhone is indeed due for a massive upgrade in 2017, at least when it comes to screen performance. More →

Samsung just made the Galaxy Note 7 official, but it won’t confirm any details

In something of an unconventional move on Tuesday evening, Samsung announced that it will announce the Galaxy Note 7.

Maybe we should clarify.

The world’s No. 1 smartphone company by shipment volume confirmed in a blog post on Tuesday that it will unveil its next-generation Galaxy Note 7 during a press conference next month. The event will take place in New York City on August 2nd, aligning perfectly with a number of earlier rumors that suggested Samsung’s new Note phablet would debut on that date. Unfortunately, Samsung didn’t confirm any other details about the phone or when it might be released. More →

These are the first photos of an actual Galaxy Note 7

The Galaxy Note 7 is hardly a secret at this point. With a few weeks left until the next flagship phablet comes to town, the Galaxy Note 7 isn’t a mystery for anyone who has been following the rumors this summer. We’ve already seen multiple reports about specs and press renders. We know the phone will be Samsung’s next best thing, and it’ll also be one of its most expensive phones ever.

Now a batch of fresh leaks shows us the first actual photos of the upcoming smartphone. More →

Prime Day Deals 2016

The world’s most innovative smartphone has never been this cheap

The world’s most innovative smartphone has never been this cheap

2016 has been a terrific year so far for smartphones. The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are awesome, the LG G5 was pretty cool with its modular design, and the OnePlus 3 is such a good bargain that it’s almost difficult to believe. But in terms of true innovation, there’s really only one phone that truly stands out: the Nextbit Robin. This phone packs just 32GB of local storage and no microSD card support, and yet it never runs out of space because of Nextbit’s brilliant cloud-based dynamic storage solution. You can read all about it in our Nextbit Robin review.

At $399, the Robin is a terrific value. But for two days only thanks to Prime Day, you can buy one in either Mint or Midnight for just $239. That’s a crazy deal that you absolutely shouldn’t pass up if you’re in the market for an unlocked smartphone. More →

iPhone 7 Rumors

Let’s talk about how hot the iPhone 7 looks in these leaked photos

Let’s talk about how hot the iPhone 7 looks in these leaked photos

OK, dear readers, it’s time for another quick chat about the iPhone 7. Walk with me.

Last week I decided I just couldn’t take all this talk about how “boring” the iPhone 7 is shaping up to be, so I wrote something about it. I mean seriously, does this new phone really sound boring to you? Really? That article resulted in thousands of shares on social media, hundreds of comments and dozens of emails. Many people disagreed with me and many more agreed, but there’s little question based on our coverage thus far that the iPhone 7 is the most hotly anticipated smartphone of the year — boring or not.

Another day, another leak, another reason to revisit this polarizing issue. More →

iPhone 7 photo leak shows Apple is killing more than just the headphone jack

This year’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro are expected to be the first iPhones that will lack a 3.5mm headphone jack. But that’s not the only thing Apple might “kill” this year with its updated iPhone 7 design, as a new series of leaked images seems to suggest. More →

This might be a truly exciting hidden Galaxy Note 7 feature

The Galaxy Note 7 is going to be one of the hottest and most expensive phones you’ll be able to buy this year. The phone should offer an even better overall performance than the Galaxy S7 devices, thanks to better processors and more RAM. The phablet is supposedly shipping with an improved stylus, and will feature an iris scanner, a feature not seen on many mobile devices. But one of the most exciting features of the Galaxy Note 7 concerns a feature that’s usually taken for granted, and really noticed when it’s absent.

Meet Snapdragon 821, the processor that will be inside 2017’s best Android phones

We’ve got at least three hot Android smartphones launching in the coming months, including the new Galaxy Note 7 and two differently sized but otherwise similar 2016 Nexus handsets made by HTC. They might not be official just yet, but we pretty much know what to expect from both the Galaxy Note 7 and the new Nexus models. In fact, a series of rumors said these devices will all pack a new, supposedly better processor… and Qualcomm just made that particular processor official.
