Nothing has quite replaced the power button... yet.

We're coming up with more and more ways to wake our phone up. Double-tapping the screen, using the home button, using the gyroscope or the IR sensors... with every phone it seems like there's a new way to take some strain off our power buttons. Manufacturers keep coming up with ways to make our phones more responsive and shorten the time between us picking up their phones and getting...

Navigation apps are important but Google is enough for most.

Ara Wagoner 38

Navigation apps are some of the most important apps we use from a safety standpoint. Just think about it. A navigation app that sends you into off on some wild goose chase, into the sticks, or worse, off-road completely can cost you time and endanger you and anyone else you're driving around. You want an app in your pocket you can trust, and so this week we asked you what navigation...

We see who has a quick-charging phone and who else wants to

Quick charging is indeed something a fair number of us have. This week's poll may seem a bit simpler than most, and the same holds true for its results, which show that a majority of the responding users — what 4,500 of you responded this week — said that you did have a quick-charging phone. This comes as a small surprise to us, as relatively few phones in the last few months have come...

There are many names for it, but does your phone have it?

It has many names: turbo, rapid, quick and fast. Whatever the name may be, there are a plethora of phones out there that support Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 standard (or a manufacturers own version of it) since it was first announced back in 2013. And while we're doing our series on quick-charging and the phones and chargers that support it, we'd like to see how many of our readers...

Who is using Google's social platform? Google's own social platform Google+ is something of a dark horse in the social media world, and many have called it a failure for not attracting enough of their real-life contacts to replace Facebook or Twitter. However, the tech world, and Android users in particular have extra incentive — or blackmail, if you wanna look at it that way — to have...

Let's talk about the weather Weather's kind of important, especially around this time of year when you can walk outside and either find it 80 degrees or 20. What can I say, Texas winters are a little random. Point is, the weather's kinda important, and it's something that you have quite a few options when using. Beyond the plethora of apps available for weather, there are also plugins...

Where do you buy your digital movies and TV shows?

Let's stay in and order a movie... Well, it's a perfectly miserable day in the Northeastern U.S., and that makes it the perfect time to bust out some videos and hold yourself a marathon. That's what I'm doing today — though for health reasons; it's absolutely gorgeous here in Texas — and it got me thinking: which online video store to our readers use the most? Sure, Google Play comes...
