Google is running a new promotion in the run up to the launch of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which will allow you to choose your favorite side of the Force. Once you've selected either Light or Dark, Google apps like Gmail, Maps, YouTube, Chrome and others will reflect said choice.
If you've been eyeing Motorola's mid-range Moto X Play, today's Amazon UK sale may be tempting. For today only (Monday, Nov. 23) the online retail giant is selling the Moto X Play in black with 16GB of storage for £199.99. That's a significant cut from the £260-280 price range normally occupied by the Play.
Xiaomi is all set to unveil a new smartphone on November 24, with rumors and teasers suggesting we'll see an all-metal variation of the Redmi Note 2. It looks like the phone will be branded the Redmi Note 3, according to an official teaser image posted by Xiaomi on its Weibo page:
Samsung's gargantuan 18.4-inch Galaxy View tablet has received a discount of $100 on Amazon, and is currently on sale for $499. That's for the 32GB variant, which comes with a Full HD display, 1.6GHz Exynos 7580 octa-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, microSD slot, Wi-Fi ac, 2.1MP front camera, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, and a 5,700mAh battery.
In a press conference in New Delhi today, Lenovo announced the launch of Vibe S1 in India. The latest addition to the Vibe family, the Vibe S1 was announced at the IFA 2015 in Berlin earlier this year.
The highlight of the Lenovo Vibe S1 is the dual front-facing cameras – an 8MP primary front camera that takes sharp photos and a 2MP secondary front camera that analyses the depth of field to approximate human binocular vision.
Samsung released a commercial for its Gear VR headset, showcasing how easy it is to connect your Galaxy smartphone — the Galaxy Note 5, S6 edge+, S6, and the S6 edge — and start experiencing virtual reality.
It's Appday Sunday and that means we're back with more of our favorites to share. Every week we bring a handful of great apps to the table and share them with everyone. Sometimes they are new apps, sometimes old standards, but every time they are apps we love to use.
Give these a look and then take a minute to tell us all about the apps you are using and love so we can give them a try. We all find some of our favorites right in the comments on these posts!
We have some really great phones from a variety of manufacturers in 2015, and the Nexus 6P, LG G4 and LG V10 all fit the bill. While they all share some similarities like big screens and excellent cameras, they are also very different in other areas.
We're going to have a look at all three and hopefully we can help you decide which one would work best for you.
I love the audacity of Facebook, the company. It rightly (yet so wrongly) operates under the assumption that you're using Facebook (you probably are), you'll continue to use Facebook (you probably will) and that there's absolutely no way you'll ever quit Facebook (ever). Consider a couple recent examples:
OnePlus made a very bad decision, and it means you shouldn't buy the OnePlus X if you use AT&T.
The OnePlus X is actually a really good phone, made better by the fact that it has a great price tag of just $249. A glance at the phone's spec sheet gives you hope for this compact phone that's wrapped in metal and glass — that is, until you look at the supported radio bands.
Need to find the perfect gift for the gamer in your life? This helpful guide should point you in all the right directions.
Gaming is no longer the TV-tethered experience that it once was. Now mobile gaming and the latest gen consoles rock amazing technology and high-end graphics to gawk at. Even virtual reality is making a strong comeback with new headsets that provide a more immersive experience. This year there are plenty of exciting gaming gifts worth checking out for that special someone, so go ahead and dive right in to see what's hot this holiday season.
As the holiday season kicks into full gear, things are getting hectic as last minute launches flow out the door. Microsoft's long-awaited new Windows Mobile flagship finally arrived in the form of the Lumia 950, a 5.2-inch Quad HD hexa-core 20MP beast of a phone. And it's even beastlier brother, the 5.7-inch Lumia 950 XL is due a week later.
While Microsoft had a successful launch, things have been a little more hinky on the Android side of things, where LG unlaunched the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE, a surpise move that saw the first cellular-equipped Android Wear watch getting pulled back from retail. That said, it's been a weird story for that watch since the very beginning.
This week the Android world was pulled in several different directions, and there wasn't just one story stealing the show. In terms of news, we had ASUS finally launch its stick-like Chromebit computer, and NVIDIA took the wraps off of its refreshed Shield Tablet K1. Sprint (re)launched a promotion that'll cut your current phone bill in half, and announced a new "LTE Plus" network in 77 markets. Oh yeah, and LG abruptly decided to cancel the launch of the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE.
As the Priv continues to make its way into customers hands, we've continued with all of our help content as well to get folks familiar with their device. Aside from that, this week we also saw BlackBerry ramp up their Priv marketing efforts, John Chen discuss what the device means to BlackBerry's future success and finally, we heard T-Mobile CEO John Legere say BlackBerry is 'on a comeback'.
So. Much. Apple. Stuff. We've got our international Apple TV review up finally, but we've also been going hard at the iPad Pro all week. Sure, Apple threw us an Apple Watch charging dock curveball, launched Apple Pay in Canada and Australia, and the list goes on and on. So let's get to it!
It's been two years since the last true 'high-end' Windows Phone and that all ended this week as the AT&T Microsoft Lumia 950 went on sale. Also, the bigger Lumia 950 XL and the unlocked versions go on sale next week. We reviewed the Lumia 950 in exasperating detail and while we saw a lot of good things, there are a few holes too.
Windows 10 Mobile build 10586, which is also the same version as the shipping one, also went out to Insiders this week heralding a new age of Windows Phone. Microsoft is done yet, however. More Insider builds are going to continue through 2016 as Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile continues to evolve.
This week on Kicked Weekly we show you the best way to roll your cords with The Cord Roll, talk about eating bugs with the Eat Grub Bar, and look at a campaign that wants to bring back the cult classic TV show Mystery Science Theatre 3000. And unsurprisingly, Dan's sweater choice is again mocked by Kim.
Microsoft just launched its new Lumia 950 smartphone this week with Windows 10 Mobile, and it wants to entice you to make the switch. That's likely the reason for the company to also launch its latest Android exclusive app, AppComparison.
Known as Obi Mobiles previously, the company co-founded by John Sculley aims to address the market need between high-design smartphones at high prices and generic smartphones at low prices. John is the former head of Apple and Pepsi-Cola, which is why Obi Mobiles garnered a lot of attention when it launched.
HTC has sent out media invites for a November 25 event in New Delhi, where the company is likely to debut the HTC One A9 in India.
The HTC One A9 is a mid-tier premium smartphone with a design that is strikingly similar to iPhone 6. In the US, the One A9 was launched at an introductory price of $399.99, and is retailing for $499.99 now.
