The Panono 360 degree camera isn't for everyone, but it's super impressive

6

While LG and Samsung attack the mass consumer market, Panono is more prosumer.

It's not a brand new product, but this week's IFA Global Press Conference in Hong Kong has presented our first opportunity to get up close with it. Borne from crowdfunding, as so many start-up projects now are, the Panono 360 degree camera is a high-end, stills only shooter that boasts of taking pictures with five times the resolution of any alternative currently on the market.

Mobile Nations Weekly: The power of 10

22
HTC 10

All the tens in all the places.

The subject of many leaks and speculation is here — no, not the iPhone 7 — it's the HTC 10!. But it's going up against some strong competition in the Galaxy S7 and the LG G5.

The Apple front was rather quiet, with ongoing speculation about an update and renaming of Mac OS X and the much-anticipated iPhone 7 — though neither will be here exactly soon.

Microsoft was in full update mode, with updates for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile, as well as updates for the various preview builds for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

All this and much much more on this edition of Mobile Nations Weekly!

Samsung Pay now supports Regions Bank

24
Samsung Pay with Regions Bank

If you're in the Southeast and use Regions Bank, know this — you're now supported by Samsung Pay. That means you can now add your puke green debit card or any of your Regions credit cards to Samsung Pay.

And, well, that's it. The big deal here is that, first, there are a ton of Samsung phones out there, with the GS7 and GS6 lines (and the Note 5) supporting Samsung Pay. The second is that Samsung Pay supports that newfangled MST thing wherein you can use your phone to pay anywhere you'd normally swipe a card — meaning that you can use it in far more places than you could Android Pay or Apple Pay. (On the other hand, that sometimes leads to interesting interactions.)

Thanks, @Jbkhd24, for the heads up!

44
Phone boxes

Want to break free from upfront fees and network subsidies? Welcome to the world of unlocked phones

When it's time to buy a new phone, most of us turn to the four major UK networks operators, or one of the many smaller networks that piggyback on them. But as cheaper smartphones become better and better, and the urge to upgrade to the latest and greatest handsets grows, you may have been considering the alternative — simply buying a phone unlocked and popping in your SIM.

Unlike other parts of the world, buying a new, unlocked smartphone isn't a new concept for British consumers. But if you're thinking of taking the plunge, there are a few factors worth considering. Check past the break for a quick primer on buying an unlocked phone in the UK.

Samsung Smart Switch makes it easy to get your old stuff on your new phone

21

Smart Switch is easy to use. Here's everything you need to know.

The worst part of getting a new phone is moving all your content from your old phone over. If you went to a store and bought a new Galaxy S7, there's a good chance someone there had a gadget that helps them do it for you, but nowadays a lot of us shop online to make buying a phone a little more hassle-free. If that sounds like you, Samsung Smart Switch is something you need to take a look at.

It's built into the Galaxy S7 settings (look under the Backup and Restore section) and it works if your old phone was running Android, iOS or BlackBerry. It's really simple to use and the app walks you through the whole thing no matter which phone you're coming from. All your photos, music, videos, call logs and messages get moved over in one quick and easy process. If you're coming from another Samsung Android phone, it can even move Galaxy Apps and their data over, just like using Samsung Kies from a computer to do the swap. Even if you breezed past the restore settings when you first setup your Galaxy S7, you can still fire up Smart Switch and have a go with it.

Here are a few tips to get you started

From the Editor's Desk: Ask away ...

310

I'm spending all day on an airplane. Maybe not my favorite thing to do on a Sunday, but there are worse ways to get from Point A to Point B, for sure.

And as is the tendency when I end up at 35,000 feet for the better part of a Sunday, I'm going to spend most of it working. Writing, actually. But let's also open things up a bit. Have a burning question? Ask away in the comments. I've got hours to kill, in-seat power, and a phone full of music.
