Networks, when you think about it, come down to one thing. Coverage. If you're not covered, nothing else matters. But in partnering with two U.S. carriers — Sprint and T-Mobile — Google's Project Fi definitely has an interesting advantage.
But the question stands: Will you have Project Fi coverage where you live?
Google has announced Project Fi, a new program that aims to keep you connected, no matter what network you're on.
Beginning as an early access program, Google is working with Sprint and T-Mobile to build Fi. The service is centered around three main areas of focus: high-quality connections, easy communication across networks, and a simple service experience.

If you love the idea of the HTC One M9 but can't handle everything the Sense 7 launcher throws at you, then Easy Mode might be the right choice for you.
Launchers are powerful things these days. They're your portal to all the apps and widgets and information your smartphone has at its disposal. But for some folks, the options can be a bit too much. And to that end we've seen manufacturers include a more simple launcher on their devices.
That's true on the HTC One M9, which sports an "Easy Mode" alongside the full Sense 7 launcher. And here's how to use it.
Knowing exactly how much battery you have left is handy, but sometimes a clean notification bar is better.
Like most Android manufacturers, Samsung's TouchWiz UI isn't exactly conservative when it comes to icon usage in your notification bar. While this may not be a problem for some folks, there's nothing wrong with wanting most of the notification bar to be available for, you know, notifications. By the time you've turned on Bluetooth, NFC, set an alarm, and enabled priority notifications, you're using well over half of the bar for persistent things that aren't incoming notifications. One of the big ways you can take some of that space back for yourself is removing the battery percentage indicator on your Galaxy S6, which is pretty simple to do if you know where to look.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 camera is good. Darn good. But you can make it better by downloading a few extra modes from Samsung.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 camera is impressive in its own right. It shoots excellent pictures out of the box, with very little fuss. But it can do more. Much more.
Samsung actually pared back some of the features in the camera app this time around. That makes the initial experience easier — no more overwhelming feature lists — but it does mean you're lacking things that were built in before. Say, the ability to record an animated gif, for one. The good news is these features are pretty easy to get back. Here's how.
