HTC U Ultra design revealed in series of leaked photos

116

HTC U Ultra sports a second screen and no headphone jack.

A new series of leaked photos — possibly taken at a CES 2017 briefing room — appear to show the design of the HTC's forthcoming device, the U Ultra. As first reported by HTC Source, the 10 leaked photos offer multiple angles of the new device, which is set to be officially announcement by HTC at 3:00 a.m. ET on January 12.

From what we can tell from the photos, HTC has followed in the footsteps of the LG V20 with the inclusion of an always-on second screen in line with the front-facing camera. According to what's shown in the photos, the second screen will be home to notifications, weather updates, date and time, and battery percentage. The phone's build features a curved metal body design, with a USB-C charging port on the bottom next to the speaker, and a main camera featuring dual-flash with a look and placement that's very reminiscent to the one's found on Samsung Galaxy S7.

Another thing definitely worth noting is the apparent lack of a headphone jack. This would be in line with HTC's vision for smartphones moving forward, as the HTC Bolt — released exclusively on Sprint back in November 2016 — also did away with the headphone jack, including a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter instead.

Event spoilers aside, we'll still have to wait for HTC's event to get the full specs and details of this new device. But based on these photos alone, are you hyped for the HTC U Ultra? You can check out HTC's teaser trailer for the launch event below.

The dumbest stuff we found at CES 2017

50
CMRA for Apple Watch

It can't all be good at CES, and these products … definitely weren't.

*/ /*-->*/

There was a lot of great stuff at CES 2017. This stuff, however, was not on that list. From vibrating jeans to a smart shower, we could do without this stuff today, tomorrow, and forever.

Tinder VR

Tinder VR

Tinder thought it'd be a good idea to use CES as a means to make a statement about how technology reduces our ability to make IRL connections.

The company's mission is "to get people together to have real experiences in the real world," but it also wanted to make a VR headset. So how do you reconcile those disparate ideas? By annoying everyone with a technology-free "VR headset."

The Tinder VR headset is essentially two pairs of goggles connected in the middle. When you strap one side of the device to your head and a stranger straps the other side of the device to theirs, you're forced to gaze into each other's eyes and suss out the contents of their soul.

Because CES is the best time and place to make a statement about the state of society and genuine communication … cue eye roll

U by Moen

U by Moen

You know what's better than a shower that turns on unfailingly with hot, pressurized water? Nothing, but Moen thought it could improve the shower anyway.

U by Moen is a "smart shower" that promises to help you "shower like never before." If you're wondering what that means, it apparently means controlling your shower with a smartphone app. The app lets you set a timer for your shower (because I definitely want my shower telling me when it's time to get out, not the other way around), features a start and stop control (make sure your device is water resistant!), lets you control the temperature so you can get it just right, and notifies you when your shower has reached the perfect preset temperature (because we're all brewing coffee and tea with our shower water?).

The U by Moen requires a custom installation that starts at $1200 and the whole thing connects over WiFi. Because we all need a WiFi connected shower. We definitely need that. Yep. Def.

Withings Hair Coach

Withings Hair Coach

What do you get when you cross a microphone with a hairbrush? I wish I had a punchline, but alas, it's the award-winning (as in won awards) Withings Hair Coach.

The Withings Hair Coach is set to hit the market this fall and promises to be the future of hair care. Using built-in sensors, the Withings Hair Coach hairbrush analyzes your hair health and routine. It claims to track the following:

  • Dryness
  • Damage
  • Breakage
  • Tangling
  • Force & rhythm of brushing
  • Gestures
  • Stroke count

It tracks all of those data points using a microphone that listens to the sound of your hair being brushed, 3-axis load cells that measure the force of your brushing, an accelerometer and a gyroscope, and conductivity sensors for determining if it's brushing dry or wet hair.

Basically, it's a crap-ton of technology packed into a hairbrush that'll tell you you're really bad at brushing your hair. So if you're into that sorta thing, the Withings Hair Coach is for you! I'll be over here brushing my hair blissfully ignorant of my poor technique.

CMRA

CMRA

My colleague Cella Lao Rousseau has already shared five reasons why she's fine living in a world without CMRA, and CES gave us a few reasons more.

In theory, a wrist-mounted camera seems like a good idea, right? When we went to check out the tech at CES, we were greeted with a prototype device and absolutely no demo. In fact, there weren't any demos available throughout all of CES.

If there's one thing we should all have learned by now, it's that gadgets don't exist until they do (I call it the Crowdfunding Caution), so until I see the thing in action (and the company addresses Cella's concerns), it gets the big ol' DUMB stamp.

Essential Vibrating Jeans

Essential Vibrating Jeans

I mean, need we really say more than "vibrating" and "jeans" in the same sentence before your eyes start rolling? Didn't think so.

The Essential Vibrating Jeans are meant to offer up notifications with a slight buzz … in your pants. To be fair, there is one use case that makes a little sense: GPS feedback. Much like Apple Watch, the pants can give you separate vibrations for left turns and right turns.

Unfortunately, the company also imagines a world where students and employees can receive notifications from their teachers and bosses, respectively … in their pants. Because buzzing a subordinate's pants is definitely a good idea.

(Please excuse me while I go switch off the HR alarm.)

Moore USB Drive

Moore USB Drive

The Moore USB Drive claims to be able to offer unlimited data storage anytime, anywhere — even when there's no internet connection available.

The flash drive is supposed to connect to a cloud storage system and — thanks to a special artificial intelligence algorithm — it automatically knows what data you need on the device at all times and makes sure it's available locally.

Let me kick you a scenario: The flash drive is 32GB and you've uploaded 3,200GB of data. You get on an airplane and you're looking for a movie you edited from a couple years ago — the ingenious AI will have the movie ready for you! You don't need internet access and you don't need to sync.

BWAHA! Nope. I'm thinking this company thinks we're dumb.

GraalPhone

GraalPhone

The first dumb thing about the Graalphone is that it claims to be coming in late 2017, but it's only offering up mockups on its site (Crowdfunding Caution, folks!).

The Graalphone claims to be "the perfect synthesis between efficiency and fun," which just means it's a tablet, a computer, a smartphone, and a 2D and 3D camera. Y'know, no big.

The tablet and computer features a 7-inch screen, full-on keyboard, Microsoft Windows, and Android OS. The slide-out smartphone features a 5-inch screen with Android OS. Oh, did we mention the camera features 5X optical zoom? That thing zooms right on outta the casing … err, it would if it were real.

I'll gladly eat my graal if this thing ever makes it to market.

See anything stupid?

Were you keeping track of the happenings at CES? What's the dumbest thing you saw?

PS4 vs. PS4 Slim vs. PS4 Pro: Which should you buy?

199

Which PlayStation 4 should I buy?

Anyone looking to buy a PlayStation for family now have three options that look very similar. You've got the original PlayStation 4, the new slimmer PlayStation 4 with the exact same branding on the box, and the new PlayStation 4 Pro. It's confusing by anyone's standards, so your best bet is to know what you need before you head into the store.

What's the difference?

Sony has a history of releasing a "slim" version of the PlayStation a couple of years after its initial release. In the past, those consoles have been labeled a little differently at launch to make it easier to tell the new version apart from the old one. These slimmer versions typically offer more a physical difference than a functionality difference, and this year is no different. The significant feature and performance difference comes with the PlayStation 4 Pro, and even then the difference isn't huge unless you own a 4K television with HDR support.

Category PlayStation 4 (2013) PlayStation 4 (2016) PlayStation 4 Pro Price $349 $299 $399 Dimensions 10.83in x 12.01in x 2.08in 10.43in x 11.34in x 1.54in 11.61in x 12.87in x 2.17in CPU AMD Jaguar 8-core (x86-64) AMD Jaguar 8-core (x86-64) AMD Jaguar 8-core (x86-64) GPU AMD Radeon (1.84 TFLOP) AMD Radeon (1.84 TFLOP) AMD Radeon (4.2 TFLOP) Storage 500GB / 1TB 500GB / 1TB 1TB Optical out Yes No Yes AV out AV/HDMI 1.4 HDMI 1.4 HDMI 2.0 Power consumption 250w max 165w max 310w max 4K Streaming No No Yes USB USB 3.0 (x2) USB 3.0 (x2 ) USB 3.0 (x3) PSVR support Yes Yes Yes (Enhanced)

The biggest functional difference between the original PS4 and the new slimmer PS4 is power consumption. Sony claims the new PS4 has a max power draw of 165 watts, which sounds impressive next to the original 250w max of the first PS4 until you see most benchmarks. The original PlayStation 4 had an average power draw of 150w during its heaviest gameplay sessions, and never pushed anywhere near that 250w max. It is slightly smaller though, so there's that.

PlayStation VR performance is something altogether different.

As you can see, Sony is using the same CPU and a GPU that's a little more than twice the performance in the new PlayStation 4 Pro. There's also an updated version of the HDMI standard in the PS4 Pro, but there's no immediate difference in performance out of the box for video output. Games that struggled in the past to maintain 60fps on a standard PlayStation 4 will be able to offer a more consistent experience with the PlayStation 4 Pro, but it's unlikely most will notice that small improvement. PlayStation 4 Pro exists to offer 4K video streaming and enhanced graphics on supported titles. Game developers will have the option to offer higher quality graphics to PlayStation 4 Pro gamers, which will be clearly labeled with PS4 Pro Enhanced on the box. While the list of games that support this new enhanced mode is increasing every week currently there aren't many available.

PlayStation VR performance is something altogether different. PlayStation 4 Pro was built to better support PlayStation VR (You know, Project Morpheus and PlayStation Neo kinda go together and all that) but even here the differences is subtle. Games available now look slightly better on the Pro, but game developers over time will use that added power to create more compelling VR experiences and that's going to be a much bigger deal.

Bundles and sales

The default pricing for these consoles can and frequently are augmented by sales and bundles. Each of the PlayStation 4 consoles comes with a single game, usually marked with a giant photo on the packaging, so you have everything you need to get started. Many retailers have already placed the original PlayStation 4 on sale, so it's just under the $299 slim PlayStation 4 in order to help get rid of the older stock. The standard $399 PlayStation 4 Pro does not currently ship with a game, but does offer some free trials of popular titles.

Is the PlayStation 4 Pro $100 better than the PlayStation 4 or its slimmer brother? Only if you have a 4K television or are planning to purchase one soon, and even then only if that 4K television supports HDR. If you're happy with your existing television and have no plans to upgrade, you aren't going to see any significant difference between the PlayStations 4 aside from how much space they take up on your entertainment center.

Many retailers like to create their own bundles as we get closer to the holiday season, combining extra gamepads or recently discounted games to the package to help you feel like you're buying everything you need. A big part of this year's offering will no doubt include PlayStation VR. There are plenty of people who already own a PlayStation 4, but if you're looking to go all in for the first time and get everything you need, expect those same retail stores to have everything you need to get going.

Which should I buy?

Now that you know everything you need to know about the differences between these consoles, lets break it down!

  • PlayStation 4 — This is the PS4 most likely to be included in some kind of extra bundle with more accessories and games. This is also the only PlayStation 4 that comes in white right now. If you're looking for a PS4 and price is a big point of concern, you probably want to stick with the original.

See on Amazon

  • Slim PlayStation 4 — This is the PS4 you will see the most of on shelves this year, and it's the nicer looking of the three. If you care about that sort of thing, or you're just rushing in to grab a PS4 and nothing else, this is the version you want.

See on Amazon

  • PlayStation 4 Pro — If you own a 4K television, or you plan to own one before long, this is the PlayStation 4 you want. It'll last the longest, and be able to offer the most over time.

Best File Manager

215
ASUS File Manager

Asus File Manager is the best file manager currently available for Android. You can move, share and delete your files, as well as compressing them to help save space.

Best overall

ASUS File Manager

See at Play Store

ASUS File Manager manages to heave itself to the top of the file manager food chain on Android by delivering tons of great features that work well together to make your life easier in the long run. You'll see the usual features like moving, sharing and deleting the files on your phone, as well as less common features like compressing files, and streaming files located in cloud storage. Of course you'll also find the ability to easily browse your files, and manage your files with their cadre of useful disk tools.

Bottom line: ASUS File Manager delivers a great experience with all of the features you didn't realize that you wanted. From managing files, to storage, their features all work well together delivering a simple and easy to use app.

One more thing: ASUS File Manager is the highest rated file manager on Google Play, with over 600,000 reviews for a scored of 4.6. And despite the name, it's not exclusive to ASUS devices!

Why the ASUS File Manager is the best

ASUS File Manager delivers a great experience with tons of features, at the low, low, price of free.

I'll be clear, that when I'm looking for a good file manager what I'm most concerned about is price, quality, and features — although not necessarily in that order. With that being said, it's fairly clear how ASUS File Manager is able to climb to the head of the pack.

To begin with, ASUS File Manager is absolutely free. There are no add-ons, or pro editions that you'll feel obligated to buy in order to access all of the features that you want. One of the biggest perks here is the ability to share, save, edit and delete your files whether they are located on your phone, microSD card, or in cloud storage. When it comes to cloud storage, you've also got access to accounts whether they happen to be Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, and more.

ASUS also gives you the ability to stream media that you've stored in the cloud. That means that you don't need to keep all of your photos or videos stored on your phone if you want to show them to friends, you can upload them to the cloud and still whip them out at a moment's notice.

Of course the most important aspect of any file manager is how easy it is to actually manage your files. Well, ASUS File Manager has you covered on that front as well. To save space on your phone, you have the ability to compress or extract files into and out of ZIP and RAR files. From the ASUS File Manager home, you can browse through all of your files and adjust them as necessary. Additionally their Disk Tools like the storage analyzer and recycle bin help you make sure that everything is exactly as you want it.

While you might find some of these features in other file managers, having them all in one place with an app that is easy to use, is why ASUS File Manager is the best file manager currently available on Android.

Best for Privacy

File Explorer

File Explorer

See at Store

File Explorer is currently the second highest rated file manager on Google Play with over 50 thousand reviews chiming in for a 4.4 rating. That's because what File Explorer does, it does quite well, delivering an easy and intuitive file manager that lets you easily handle your business.

While File Manager does have plenty of awesome features, to access absolutely everything offered you'll need to purchase File Explorer Pro. When using the app there are popups which will inform you of an error, as well as help you out in learning the app, making it far more intuitive than many of its competitors. When using File Explorer you'll be able to you can transfer files from phone to phone using Wi-Fi, it supports multi-windowed mode, gives you the ability to see the size of each folder on your phone, and offers a home screen to allow you to easily browse and adjust your files. However, to access features like extracting ZIP and RAR files, connect to Cloud storage, and directly browse your multimedia files you will need to upgrade to File Explorer Pro.

Bottom line: File Explorer is a decent option for those who don't need a ton of bells and whistles, or who prefer an easy and intuitive app to use. However, some of their best — and most useful — features are hidden behind a paywall.

One more thing: If you've been looking for an ad-free experience that also does not participate in user tracking, then File Explorer is definitely your best bet.

Best for multiple devices

ASTRO File manager

ASTRO File Manager

See at Store

ASTRO File Manager has been one of the best file managers on Google Play for years now, and with good reason. It's got an easy to use and intuitive UI which is always a solid plus, but it also comes at the lovely price of free. While ASTRO File Manager includes many of the same features as other file managing apps, it also has a few surprises that nobody else currently includes.

To begin with, ASTRO File Manager includes a task killer. This means that it's easy to kill tasks or processes killing your battery life, without a hassle. You also have access to File Manager Backup, which can be a boon for anyone who has to switch phones often, or is prone to losing their devices.

ASTRO File Manager also delivers the best features that you're used to have access to. You'll be able to deal with files located on your phone, SD card, Cloud Storage, LAN, and even on Facebook. There is also the ability to add FTP and SMB servers.

Bottom line: ASTRO File Manager delivers you the awesome features you need in order to access and organize your files, as well as a task killer, and the lovely ability to backup your filed before switching phones. With access to files on your phone, social media, and cloud storage, you'll always be able to access what you need with a tap.

One more thing: ASTRO File Manager is available in 13 different languages, making it ideal for non-english speakers and readers.

Conclusion

Plenty of us use File Managers in order to keep track all of the many files we have. While there are many dozens of them available on the Google Play Store, many don't offer the features or ease of access that you want — or need—in a file manager. Of the many managers out there, ASUS File Manager delivers the best experience and price, with all the features you could ask for.

HTC's latest announcement is all about U, kicks off Jan 12 at 3 a.m. ET

8

The first big smartphone launch of the year is already here.

CES 2017 has come and gone, and now we're shifting right away into the early-2017 release season. HTC is the first to kick things off with an announcement set for January 12 at 3:00 a.m. ET — and if you're wondering about the funny timing, it's to coordinate with an actual launch in the evening in Taiwan. No matter what someone's waking up at a weird hour to follow along.

Based on the teaser video accompanying the announcement, HTC's latest device release is all about you (well, "U" but whatever) — and it cleverly shows off that the U is simply the HTC logo's "C" ... clever.

LG G6 to feature extra-tall 5.7-inch display

LG

LG's new flagship will reportedly focus on screen-to-body ratio.

Just as LG looks set to dump modularity in its 2017 flagship, there's another eye-catching gimmick to take its place: An extra-tall, extra-large display. As it's done in the past, the Korean firm has started trickling out details of its next major phone release, ahead of what'll presumably be a Mobile World Congress unveiling at the end of February. LG Display has told The Korea Herald that the upcoming handset will use a "QHD+" LCD display at 1440x2880. LG Display calls it an "18:9" aspect ratio, in a move sure to anger math nerds the world over.

Where to buy the Huawei Mate 9 in the U.S.

31

Where do I buy the Huawei Mate 9 in the U.S.?

Huawei's Mate 9 is big, powerful and, at $599, incredible value. While it may be too big for some, its entry into the U.S. market heralds a turning point for the Chinese company, which is competing extremely well with Samsung and Apple for global smartphone market share.

Unfortunately, Huawei still has roadblocks to overcome before it can sell its phones at U.S. carriers, but in the meantime it has launched the Mate 9 at several well-known and accessible online retailers.

Jet.com

The Huawei Mate 9 is available at Jet.com for $599.99, the standard price for the device. But Jet.com offers a way to save money by opting out of free returns, paying by debit, or both. With both of those options ticked, the phone drops to $584.48, and goes even cheaper if you purchase more than one. Jet.com is our pick for the best place to buy the Mate 9.

See at Jet.com

Amazon

Amazon is usually the gold standard for products like this, and the Mate 9 fits right into the retailer's lineup. Available for $599.99 from Amazon in either Moonlight Silver or Space Gray, the phone comes with a U.S. warranty and is eligible for Prime Shipping.

See at Amazon

Best Buy

Best Buy offers the Huawei Mate 9 at its standard $599.99 price with free 2-day shipping and a price match guarantee. Pretty standard stuff, but you can get decent financing and some cash-back rewards options with the right credit card, and you know that Best Buy has enough stores to make it easy to return the phone in case of problems.

See at Best Buy

Newegg

Newegg is selling the Huawei Mate 9 in both colors, white and silver, for $599.99, and each unit comes with a free Huawei-branded selfie stick, if you're into that sort of thing. Newegg has a great reputation for efficient delivery and easy exchanges, and has a Premier membership program that, like Amazon, offers free shipping and no restocking fee.

See at Newegg

B&H Photo Video

The New York-based B&H Photo Video is well-known for stocking hard-to-get products, and Huawei's Mate 9 is available and ready to ship. The company doesn't collect tax outside of New York State, which can help you save a few dollars in the process. Like the other vendors, B&H also stocks both colors of the Mate 9, and offers same-day shipping.

Canadians also benefit from B&H Photo Video, as it is the only one of the retailers listed to ship to Canada — free after $99.

The 21st century tricorder: MrMobile goes hands-on with the Scio Spectrometer

4

The Scio Spectrometer phone allows you to scan all the things you put into your body and make sure they're good for you. Then, you can scan your body and make sure you're actually getting healthier! The perfect phone for the hypochondriac. While it's not a great phone by most measures, the spectrometer inside the phone is a truly interesting feature.

MrMobile expounds on all his Star Trek fantasies by scanning things and talking chemical composition and captain's-logging everything in this video. Michael Fisher has the inside scoop on what's going on inside everything, thanks to the Scio Spectrometer Smartphone.

Stay social, my friends
