Xiaomi Mi Mix 2

The manufacturer you may have rarely heard of makes some of the best devices available today.

Xiaomi is a smartphone manufacturer that is growing in stature day-by-day, despite having limited presence outside of Asia. The company is now the fifth-largest smartphone vendor globally, a considerable achievement seeing as how the brand started selling phones outside China just three years ago.

Impressive, certainly, and it seems Xiaomi is set to go toe-to-toe with the likes of Apple and Samsung in the higher reaches of the smartphone market. The company overtook Samsung to become the largest smartphone brand in India late last year, and is slowly making its way to European markets.

While so many may have heard the name, the phones are still relatively alien to many in the West. Xiaomi has a reputation for building devices that are an extremely good value without cutting corners. If you're interested in picking up a Xiaomi phone or just interested in the brand, these are the phones you'll need to know about.

Samsung Galaxy Watch rumors: Release date, specs, price, and features!

Samsung Galaxy Watch rumors: Release date, specs, price, and features!

The Galaxy Watch could be Samsung's best and boldest smartwatch yet — here's why.

It's been a hot minute since Samsung released the Gear S3, and while the Gear Sport did a nice job at holding us over for a while longer, it's time we get a proper sequel to one of 2016's best smartwatches.

The rumor mill suggests that this year will see Samsung release the successor we've been longing for, but instead of a traditional Gear S4, reports are coming out that the new gadget will be called the "Galaxy Watch" and use an operating system Samsung hasn't dabbled with since 2014.

What is the Galaxy Watch and why should you care about it? Here's everything you need to know!

The latest Galaxy Watch news

July 10, 2018 — New logo confirms the Galaxy Watch name

Looks like that Galaxy Watch branding is the real deal.

A few short days after that name popped up for the first time, the above logo was spotted going through the Korean Intellectual Property Office — essentially confirming that Samsung's next watch will be called the Galaxy Watch and not the Gear S4.

July 6, 2018 — Samsung's next smartwatch might be called Galaxy Watch and use Wear OS after all

The back and forth continues! About a month after Evan Blass put the Wear OS rumors to rest, reliable Samsung tipster Ice Universe shared on Twitter that Samsung's next smartwatch — named the Galaxy Watch — will run Wear OS after all.

Additionally, it's also noted that the Galaxy Watch will have a 470 mAh battery, a blood pressure measurement system, and will utilize "new UX interaction" — possibly something to replace the rotating bezel we've had since the Gear S2.

June 7, 2018 — Those watches running Wear OS were just "one-offs" from Google

False alarm, folks. A few days after the Wear OS rumor popped up, Blass took to Twitter with the following update:

May 23, 2018 — Samsung smartwatches have been seen running Wear OS, not Tizen

Samsung's own Tizen operating system has been the go-to choice for almost all of the company's wearables, but according to a new rumor from Evan Blass, that could change this year.

Per to a tweet Blass shared, some Samsung employees have been wearing Gear watches that are running Google's Wear OS (formerly known as Android Wear).

The last time Samsung released a watch with Google's wearable OS was back in 2014 with the Gear Live, so it's very interesting to hear that Tizen could be put on the shelf this year in favor of something else.

All the big details

What's with this talk about Wear OS?

Almost all of Samsung's wearable products have used the company's own Tizen operating system, but with the Galaxy Watch, that could be changing.

Back in late May, it was reported that some Samsung employees had been seen wearing Gear watches running Google's Wear OS (previously called Android Wear). That rumor was put to rest a couple weeks later, but then on July 6, another tipster stated that the Galaxy Watch will, in fact, use Wear OS instead of Tizen.

While that may seem like a ball out of left field, this wouldn't be unheard of for Samsung. In 2014, one of the very first Android Wear watches to come out was the Samsung Gear Live.

We're still not entirely sure what's going to happen here, but a Wear OS watch from Samsung would be a huge win for the platform as a whole. Google needs big names to back Wear OS, and who better to support it than one of the largest companies on the planet?

When will the Galaxy Watch be released?

Samsung's yet to release any teasers or press invites for the Galaxy Watch, but even so, we have a couple ideas in mind as to when we'll get our first official look at it.

The Galaxy Watch will likely be announced in August or September.

Right now, IFA 2018 seems like the most logical place for Samsung to announce its new wearable. IFA is one of the largest mobile trade shows of the year, and if this turns out to be the case, that'll see the Galaxy Watch get announced between August 31 and September 5.

Secondly, it's possible that the Galaxy Watch will be announced during Samsung's Note 9 event on August 9. This seems more unlikely as the press invite shows no reference to the Galaxy Watch, and with the Note being one of Samsung's biggest products of the year, it probably doesn't want to have anything draw attention away from it.

How much will the Galaxy Watch cost?

Now, most importantly, let's talk price.

As much as we loved the Gear S3, its price tag wasn't the easiest to swallow at the time at $349. However, compared to today's market, that's not really unheard of.

A Series 3 Apple Watch with GPS and LTE will set you back at least $399. If you get the model without LTE, you're still looking at a minimum of $329.

With that in mind, we'll probably see the Galaxy Watch sell for around $300 - $350 depending on whether or not it has LTE.

That's certainly not cheap, but if Samsung knocks it out of the park with its design and features, it should be able to hold its over (if not trump) what Apple's currently offering.

NVIDIA Shield TV vs. Roku Ultra

10

NVIDIA Shield TV vs. Roku Ultra

NVIDIA Shield TV has been around since 2015. Roku Ultra was born in 2017. Sometimes, age ain't nothing but a number.

How Android TV's best goes up against a newer (and more expensive) streaming favorite.

CordCutters.com

There's no denying the popularity of Roku. Its low cost and simplicity has made it a favorite of cord cutters and casual streamers alike. And so it's almost a little unfair to put it up against the likes of NVIDIA Shield TV. Because we're talking greater hardware on just about every level, never mind the fact that Shield TV is a good two years older.

Still, though, we have to make a choice when it comes to spending our money. So we Shield TV up against Roku Ultra.

The verdict? Roku Ultra still surprises in some places, while definitely lacking in others. The real decision, though, may reside in your wallet.

Mujjo leather wallet case for Galaxy S9 review: Cut down on your pocket carry

3

Mujjo leather wallet case for Galaxy S9 review: Cut down on your pocket carry

If you've been looking to ditch your wallet, this is about as good as it gets.

I've gone through a few cases for my Galaxy S9, from Samsung's delightful Alcantara case to the simple Spigen Liquid Crystal case, and a case from Poetic that ended up falling apart less than half an hour after I unboxed it — don't buy that one.

Until recently, I always steered clear of cases because I didn't want to detract from the design and in-hand feel of my phones, particularly when they were made with high-end materials like aluminum, stainless steel, or glass. It's not the smartest idea, I'll grant that, and these days I've wisened up a bit and started using cases more frequently, but I still go for slim ones that utilize interesting materials — that's why I've been so keen on the Alcantara case that admittedly doesn't provide much shock absorption. After getting spoiled on the leather case for my iPhone X, I decided I wanted the same material for my S9, and with a bit of searching I came across Mujjo.

Mujjo leather wallet case for Galaxy S9

Price: $49.95

Bottom line: This is the perfect solution for Galaxy S9 users looking to ditch their wallet in style.

The Good

  • High-quality, vegetable tanned leather
  • Slim design with open access to buttons and ports
  • Card slot helps you ditch your wallet
  • Available in black and olive

The Bad:

  • Not much protection around the sides or bottom
  • Card slot doesn't hold as many cards as advertised

Premium look and feel

Mujjo leather wallet case What I like

It's extremely hard to find a good wallet case for an Android phone that isn't just a slotted folio, my absolute least favorite form factor. In fact, even Mujjo only recently started making Android cases — this leather case for the Galaxy S9 is the company's first, with previous models only available for the iPhone.

This case is terrifically well-made. Mujjo uses vegetable tanned leather for its wallet cases, traded with aniline oil that creates a deeper, richer color that wears into a nice patina over time. Though I haven't had my case long enough to see that patina form, it's easy to find dozens of users' worn cases with a quick search on Instagram. Taking a closer look at the case, there's a great-looking full grain, and yes, it even has that desirable leather smell.

On the inside of the case, there's a thin lining of Japanese satin microfiber, which protects the Galaxy S9's glass backing and provides a bit of extra padding. The Mujjo logo is etched inside near the bottom, which is a nice touch of craftsmanship. At every turn, this is a premium, high-end case that looks and feels every bit worth its cost.

Around the back is the highlight feature of the case, its wallet pouch, which Mujjo says will hold two to three bank cards. I love the idea of this, especially for a phone like the Galaxy S9 that features Samsung Pay. In theory, you can carry your driver's license and your primary credit or debit card, then store any other cards you might want to use digitally and leave your actual wallet behind. In fact, that's exactly what I've been doing, and it's been great to have a free pocket for once.

Stiff pocket

Mujjo leather wallet case What could improve

That wallet pouch is the cause of some disappointment too, however. Again, Mujjo says the case can hold two to three cards, but in my experience, even two can be a struggle. Sliding cards into the pouch is just as difficult at first as taking them back out; you can alleviate this a bit by inserting one too many cards and letting the leather stretch out.

After forcing three cards into the case and leaving it overnight, it's now much easier, albeit still a challenge, to work with two cards. You'll run into the most trouble when storing cards that feature raised text, which obviously adds a bit of thickness to the stack. I found that gift cards and flat cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred work best with this case, though I still wish Mujjo would've just used two slots like the excellent Twelve South RelaxedLeather case for the iPhone X.

The Mujjo leather wallet case also isn't necessarily the most protective. In addition to being as thin as it is, there are fairly large cutouts around the hardware buttons and all along the bottom of the phone. I actually prefer this, since a lot of otherwise great cases end up with soft and mushy buttons that make the phone a pain to use, but it likely won't keep the buttons safe in the event of a drop.

You should also be aware that wireless charging can negatively affect the magnetic strips in certain cards. Mujjo tests against this, and the cards that I've stored in the case have been fine after placing the Galaxy S9 on Samsung's Fast Charge Wireless Charging Convertible Stand, but there's the possibility that your card may no longer work at payment terminals, so it may be best to take the case off of your phone before placing it on a wireless charger.

Worth the money

Mujjo leather wallet case for Galaxy S9

I had high hopes for the Mujjo case, and to my delight, it lived up to almost all of them. I definitely wish the wallet slot were a bit less stiff, since I really can't imagine the case holding three bank cards as advertised, but it's good enough to hold two cards with relative ease (after a bit of stretching), and the vegetable tanned leather looks, feels, and even smells fantastic.

4.5 out of 5

If you're looking for the most protective case on the market, this definitely isn't it, but you know that going in. Instead, this case is the perfect companion to the Galaxy S9, allowing you to replace your wallet with digital cards and a backup for when Samsung Pay doesn't work. If that's your thing, I can't recommend this case enough.

Best Google Pixel 2 XL Cases

Best Google Pixel 2 XL Cases

What are the best cases for the Google Pixel 2 XL?

The Google Pixel 2 XL is a beautifully designed phone — especially if you snagged the panda/Stormtrooper Black and White edition. But as much as you'll want to show it off, you're also going to want to protect a phone that cost you close to $1000.

We've rounded up the best case options specifically for the Pixel 2 XL.

Google Live Cases

Best for Added Features

Just like the smaller Pixel 2, Google offers its customizable Google Live Cases for the Pixel 2 XL with a personal photo or a wide range of styles curated by Google.

Maybe you'll decide on a gorgeous satellite photo from Google Earth which also pairs with a matching live wallpaper for a cohesive look around your device. Looking to add a bit more of an artistic flair to your case? Check out the Artworks Live Case and find something that matches your style.

Google has curated a great selection of cases that feature artwork, photos from space, and naturally beautiful images that are really quite stunning. Prices start around $50 depending on whether you choose a minimalist shell or a more rugged dual-layer case. Create and customize your own case via the Google Store.

Google Fabric Cases

Premium Pick

If you prefer your phone case to have some texture for grip, you're probably going to love the Google Fabric Case. It features the same fabric finish look found on other recent Google products such as the Google Home Mini.

Designed in-house by Google, you can be sure of the build quality and fit for your Pixel 2 XL. These cases offer a premium microfiber liner to ensure your device stays scuff-free and your choice of four color combinations for $40.

See at Google Store

Bellroy leather case

Upscale Option

Another great option offered by Google itself is the Bellroy leather case. This is a premium case that combines leather, flexible polymer, and a microfibre lining on the interior to create a great case that looks great with a streamlined design to keep things sleek in your hand.

It's available in four color choices — Black, Navy, Caramel, and Stone — and is backed by a 3-year warranty from Bellroy. You can get this premium leather case for your Pixel 2 XL for $45.

See at Google Store

Incipio Esquire Series

Best Value

Like the concept of the Google Fabric Case but don't like the idea of spending $50 for it? You'll definitely want to check out the Incipio Esquire series case.

This case is made of an impact-resistant TPU frame that will keep your phone protected, but the real eye-catching feature here is the ultra-soft fabric finish on the exterior of the case. There is a nice-sized cutout around the fingerprint sensor and camera on the back but it's otherwise a very sleek and minimalist design.

You can get yours from Amazon for roughly $21.

See at Amazon

Spigen Tough Armor case

Best Protection

Spigen has a very solid lineup of cases for the Pixel 2 XL, but one of the more rugged and functional cases they sell is the Tough Armor style. The combination of a flexible TPU sleeve and a rugged outer shell provides great dual-layer protection for your phone, with Spigen's air cushion technology offering support in the corners. Despite its rugged design, the Tough Armor case is still mightly slim adding just 2.5 mm of thickness.

Another great feature is the pop-out kickstand built into the shell. There are so many handy reasons to have your phone propped up, and having this feature built right into the case means you don't need to add a pop socket or style ring. For all its durability and functionality, the Tough Armor case is just $17 on Amazon.

See at Amazon

Spigen Thin Fit

Thinnest Option

It can be an issue finding a case for larger phones like the Google Pixel 2 XL that doesn't add too much bulk to your phone. The Spigen Thin Fit case is about as minimalist as phone cases get.

Available in black, this case will match the look of the Pixel 2 XL and features precise cutouts around the fingerprint scanner and camera on the back. It's thin enough to keep the Active Edge compatibility fully intact and yet still features Spigen's Air Cushion technology in the corners for added drop protection.

Keep your Pixel 2 XL safe from scuffs and scratches without sacrificing the slim design with the Thin Fit case for just $12.

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro case

Most Resistant

When you name your phone case after the Unicorn Beetle — one of the gnarliest looking armored bugs in the natural world — you better back it up with a rugged case. Combining a polycarbonate outer shell with a flexible and shock-absorbing TPU sleeve around back, the Unicorn Beetle Pro goes an extra step further by including a built-in screen protector to provide maximum protection for your Pixel 2 XL. There's also an optional belt clip holster if it's convenient for you.

It's otherwise a pretty standard design for a rugged case: beefy in the corners where it needs to be yet slim and sporty enough as to not turn your phone into a thick brick of plastic. You can get yours from Amazon starting at $18 for the black style, with three other styles available for $20.

See at Amazon

Ringke Fusion

Value Option

Looking for a reliable clear case for the Pixel 2 XL at a very reasonable price? Check out the Ringke Fusion case.

Starting at just $10 for a crystal clear version, these cases offer two layers of protection for your phone — a rugged and shock-resistant TPU bumper combined with a ridged PC panel covering the back. There's a protective lip around the front to save the display glass from harm, and there are precise cutouts around the fingerprint sensor, camera, and USB-C charging port.

Get the clear version if you want to preserve the original look of the Pixel 2 XL, or opt to spend $11 on the Rose Gold or Smoke Black versions.

See at Amazon

Caseology Vault Series

Most Stylish

Caseology has a couple different cases available for the Pixel 2 XL. We recommend the Vault Series ($8) because it's got a classic design. Made of flexible TPU, it features a sleek finish along the back and textured grip around the edges. It's available in black and should look great whether you went with the Just Black or Black and White Pixel 2 XL.

If you're looking for something a bit more substantial, check out the Parallax Series ($16) which offers a slim, two-piece design to keep your Pixel well-protected. It's also available in some really cool color combinations. Or consider the Legion Series ($14), which offers a more rugged matte shell around the back of the case.

See at Amazon

i-Blason Ares

Best for Drops

If you're looking for a solid case that provides optimum protection for your Pixel 2 XL, and you're ok with adding a little bit of bulk to your already large phone, then i-Blason's Ares case is the one you want. It has extra reinforcement in the corners to provide superior drop protection, has a built-in screen protector, and a transparent back so you can still enjoy the look of your phone.

Pricing starts around $18 for the black version, but you can also snag four other color combinations for around $20 apiece.

See at Amazon


Vena vCommute wallet case

Best Wallet

Vena's sleek wallet case isn't your typical folio-style wallet case, and it's the perfect way to cut down on pocket carry with your Pixel 2 XL. This case features a magnetic flap on the back that covers a slot big enough for about three cards or a couple cards and some cash. There's a raised lip in the card slot, so even if you only have on card, you can still slide it out easily.

The folding magnetic flap doubles as a kickstand so you can watch video hands-free and can be yours for just $20. If you don't need the kickstand feature but still want a wallet case, they offer a sleeker credit card slot holder case%7B.cta.shop.nofollow&th=1) for just $12 on the same listing.

Carved wooden cases

Best Wood Case

Carved has a bunch of great case options available for phones like the Pixel 2 XL, including 52 stylish pre-made option featuring a mix of cool prints and fancy cut wood designs with prices ranging from $29 to $55, along with a selection of classic wood grain cases for just $24.

Carved also allows you to create your own custom case using an online case designer. They also offer the option to get a section of a map engraved or printed onto the case. With the right eye for design, you could design a case that uses the fingerprint scanner as part of your case's decoration.

Lifeproof FRE case

Best Rugged Case

I suppose you could say we're saving the best for last. The Lifeproof FRE case is a go-to option for anyone who loves to stay connected while exploring the outdoors and never wants to worry about their phone getting wet or damaged while hiking, biking, or kayaking.

This case is designed to be form-fitting and lightweight while providing 360-degree protection that keeps all water and dust out while also providing great drop protection. It's also designed to work with Lifeproof's accessory mounts, which let you attach your phone to your car's dashboard, an armband for running and hiking, and a bike mounts for riding the trails. This is marketed and sold as a premium case and that's reflected in the price — at $89, it's by far the most expensive case on this list. But it's arguably the most rugged, too, so if you need a case that will live up to your rough and tumble lifestyle, this is the one.

Control up to 15 devices with the $140 Logitech Harmony Ultimate All In One Remote

Your entire living room on one device.

The Logitech Harmony Ultimate All in One Remote is on sale today only for $139.99 at Amazon. This $45 discount off the product's average price is a deal exclusively available to Prime members, though you can start a free 30-day trial if you're not yet a member to take advantage of this offer.

Amazon doesn't usually offer Gold Box deals of the day which are Prime exclusive, however, the impending Prime Day event has unleashed a torrent of early deals like this one.

For a limited time, you could also grab the upgraded Harmony Ultimate 950 remote for $179.99 at Amazon.

Logitech's Harmony Ultimate remote can control your entire home entertainment system (up to 15 devices at once), even devices hidden behind cabinet doors and walls. Its customization features allow you to create one-touch sequences which can turn on multiple devices or your entire setup at once, adjust and remap buttons, set device delays and timing among much more.

Its color touch-screen displays shortcuts to your most frequently used commands and services with space for up to 50 favorite channel icons. The remote comes with a recharging station as well and can be voice controlled using an Alexa device like the Amazon Echo Dot. Best of all, it works with over 270,000 devices currently and can connect to Wi-Fi to enable compatibility for others in the future.

How to use Hidden Space in OxygenOS

Have apps you want to keep out of your main app drawer? Hidden Space is for you.

OxygenOS — the software used on OnePlus phones — has a lot of bells and whistles that are worth checking out. If you've got apps installed that you don't want other people to see or simply want to keep hidden for the sake of organization, one feature it comes equipped with is called "Hidden Space.'

Hidden Space was added to OxygenOS earlier this year, and if you're wondering how to use it, you've come to the right place.

  1. Swipe up to open your app drawer.
  2. Swipe to the right (starting from the left edge of your screen) and you'll see the Hidden Space area pop up.

  3. Tap the + icon near the bottom right and select the apps you want to move to Hidden Space.
  4. Tap the back arrow near the top left after selecting your apps.

Any apps you choose will be removed from your main app drawer and will now only show up in the Hidden Space.

If you put an app in Hidden Space but want to remove it:

  1. Go to Hidden Space.
  2. Tap the Edit button near the bottom right.
  3. Tap the checked apps you want to remove.
  4. Tap the back button near the top right.

Stay hidden 👀

Best Phone for Business in 2018

Best Phone for Business in 2018

DTEK60

Best overall

BlackBerry KEY2

See at Amazon

BlackBerry is legendary when it comes to mobile device management and security, and follows that trend when using Android to power its phones. With the KEY2, you also get the keyboard experience that only BlackBerry can offer. The KEY2 is a great way to enjoy Android for people who still want a physical keyboard on their phone and peace of mind knowing a company is concerned about security. The KEY2 offers a significant bump in specifications over the KEYone to offer an even better experience that you've had before.

Bottom line: BlackBerry continues its reputation for excellent mobile security and having a great keyboard with the KEY2.

One more thing: The KEY2 is also the first BlackBerry with dual-cameras so photos for business or pleasure will look better than ever.

Why the KEY2 is the best

A phone you want to use can also keep your data safe — both personal and business data.

The phone you carry to serve your customers and keep things running smoothly at work needs to be able to do them quickly and keep all that data safe. The KEY2 is our top pick when it comes to these specifics.

BlackBerry has built a reputation on serving business owners with highly capable and very secure phones. That legacy lives on with its Android offerings. BlackBerry's additions like the Hub and contact manager are proven to be effective ways to manage busy business accounts. The KEY2's great physical keyboard means you'll feel right at home if you're coming from an older BlackBerry.

Google adds security-focused additions when they release a newer version of Android that help keep data safer while we carry it in our pockets or briefcases. But BlackBerry doesn't solely rely on Google like most other smartphone manufacturers do when it comes to mobile security and instead have years of experience and a team dedicated to making sure the software on your BlackBerry phone is as safe and secure as possible.

And the KEY2 is a phone that does all this with no compromises when it comes to performance. The efficient yet powerful Snapdragon CPU and 6GB of memory mean you can do whatever it takes to keep things running smoothly all day without searching for a charger and power outlet. Whether you're managing email, sorting through a spreadsheet at the airport, or watching a video in your downtime, the KEY2 can handle it all.

Best for updates

Google Pixel 2

See at Verizon

The Google Pixel 2 is the most secure Android phone you can buy, and one of the most secure phones of any available today.

Without disabling any security protections, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are protected against known public security exploits and remote installations are monitored by Google's scanning software which blocks potential malicious content. Security is paramount when it comes to using a phone with all your important business contacts and details.

One of the things that make the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL the best is that they use the latest — and most secure — version of Android. More importantly, the changes and code behind these fixes are available for peer review so they can be made more robust.

Bottom line: The Google Pixel 2 will always have the latest and most secure version of Android for the duration of its lifetime.

One more thing: Verizon carries the Pixel 2 and your account rep can take care of any order.

Best for note-takers

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

See at Amazon

There's something about the Note line that screams business, and the Note 8, in its 6.3-inch glory, is one of the best options for smartphone buyers who want a little more than the average experience. The Note 8 is essentially a Galaxy S8+ on steroids, with two cameras and the all-important S Pen. If you're a note-taker — like the old-school kind — the Note 8 is one heck of a phone. And it's secured by KNOX, Samsung's excellent on-device and cloud security software.

Bottom line: It's expensive, but it feels expensive. The Note 8 is one of the best business phones you can buy.

One more thing: You can get the Note 8 at every U.S. carrier.

Conclusion

Media outlets like to give Android a bad reputation when it comes to security, and it's difficult to blame them. Old, outdated software from manufacturers with no real concern for your security or privacy are the norm when it comes to phones running Android. The phone you use to run your business can't be this way.

The KEY2 has the BlackBerry legacy of security and professional tools behind it, and the move to Android also makes even more services available. When it comes to the day-to-day needs of running a business or having your staff using the best tools possible in a safe and secure way, you can rely on the BlackBerry KEY2. You also can't go wrong with the Pixel 2 or the Note 8 if you have more specific needs like bleeding edge Google compatibility or using the excellent S Pen.

MoviePass: Everything you need to know

MoviePass: Everything you need to know

Here's your one-stop-shop for all the MoviePass news, controversies, and more.

Unless you've been living under a rock lately, there's a good chance you've heard a thing or two about MoviePass. Although the company was founded way back in 2011, it's picked up a lot of steam over the past year or so with its too-good-to-be-true offer of allowing you to see one movie per day for just $9.95/month.

MoviePass has become one of the most disruptive companies of recent memory, and whether you're looking for the latest controversies or want to learn more about the service before you sign up, you've come to the right place.

Without further ado, this is everything you need to know about MoviePass!

The latest MoviePass news

July 12, 2018 — Support for IMAX and 3D movies will be available by September 3

While the addition of Peak Pricing isn't the most welcome change to hit MoviePass, CEO Mitch Lowe recently shared some good news with Business Insider.

According to Lowe, MoviePass subscribers will be able to see IMAX, 3D, and other premium showings by Labor Day (September 3). A charge of $2 - $5 will be applied for these more expensive formats, but considering that IMAX tickets can cost as much as $20+ per ticket, that's still a good value even with the $9.99/month recurring fee in mind.

As for MoviePass's other new feature, Bring-A-Guest, that should also be rolled out around the same time.

Lastly, Lowe noted that Peak Pricing will be implemented for all MoviePass subscribers by the end of the month.

July 5, 2018 — Peak Pricing is now rolling out to all MoviePass users

After being announced late last month, MoviePass is officially launching its new Peak Pricing system.

Like we mentioned in the last news update, Peak Pricing will add a small surcharge to certain showtimes based on the movie you're seeing and what time it's playing. A red lightning bolt icon next to a showtime indicates that it is affected by Peak Pricing while a grey-colored one notes that Peak Pricing may go into effect for it soon.

If you're checking in for a show with Peak Pricing, you'll see a confirmation screen highlighting the amount you'll be charged.

MoviePass notes that Peak Pricing is "rolling out gradually over the next several weeks."

June 22, 2018 — MoviePass Peak Pricing, Bring-A-Guest, and Premium Showings

Get ready, folks. There's a lot changing with MoviePass, so let's dive right into the big highlights:

  • Bring-A-Guest: If you're going to the movies with a friend or family member that doesn't have MoviePass, you can purchase their ticket from the MoviePass app. You'll still pay the full ticket price, but it should make the ticket-buying process a bit more seamless. You can pick a seat for you and your guest if you're going to a theater that supports e-ticketing and reserved seating, and if your friend signs up for MoviePass without 24 hours of your showtime, you'll get a full refund for the ticket price.

  • Peak Pricing: For showtimes where "the combination of demand for a title, date or part of day is higher", you'll need to pay a "small additional fee" for your ticket. You can avoid the added cost by seeing a different movie or seeing that same title on a different day, and MoviePass will give you a Peak Pass once a month that waives the fee for you. If you're billed annually or quarterly, you won't be subject to Peak Pricing until your subscription resets.

  • Premium Showings: No matter what plan you're on, you'll have the option of seeing RealD 3D, 2D IMAX, 3D, and other Premium Large Format movies by paying an upgrade fee.

MoviePass says these features will be rolling out to members "in the coming weeks."

June 11, 2018 — A family plan is coming!

Since MoviePass's inception, one of the features users have been asking for the most is a family plan. We've been waiting and waiting for something along these lines to be announced, and on June 11, Helios and Matheson Analytics CEO (MoviePass's parent company) Ted Farnsworth confirmed that a family plan is, in fact, in the works.

With MoviePass's family plan, you'll be able to book tickets for you and your family members/significant other all in one app/transaction. There won't be any sort of discount for the family plan, but the added convenience of not having to bother with multiple apps and subscriptions will be a welcome treat.

Farnsworth said that they "might do something down the road to get more of a discount for the family plan", but it's unclear if/when that'll happen.

April 27, 2018 — You can no longer see the same movie more than once

Well, I suppose we all knew this day would come sooner or later.

On April 27, MoviePass updated its Terms of Service so that it reads as follows:

We recently updated our Terms of Service to reflect that MoviePass subscribers are only permitted to see a select movie in theaters once with your MoviePass. We hope this will encourage you to see new movies and enjoy something different!

In other words, you only get to watch Infinity War once with your MoviePass. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

All the important details

There are two plans to choose from

Right now, you've got two options to choose from if you want to get MoviePass — MoviePass and MoviePass Unlimited.

The former of those two costs $7.95/month and lets you see three movies per month.

While it's nice that MoviePass has this available if you want to save a couple bucks each month, I'd recommend going all the way with MoviePass Unlimited. For $9.95/month, you can watch one new movie per day in theaters every single day.

Both plans are billed monthly and can be canceled at any time.

See at MoviePass

E-ticketing makes everything easier

MoviePass is regularly partnering with more and more theater chains to support e-ticketing, and if you happen to live near one that offers this, you're in for a real treat.

For theaters that don't support e-ticketing, using MoviePass requires you to be within 100 yards of the theater you're going to, check-in to the showtime on your phone, and then swipe your card to get your ticket. If the showing happens to sell out by the time you get to the theater, you can either choose another movie or call it a night.

However, if there's a theater near you that does support e-ticketing, the process is way simpler. Once you find the showtime you want to go to, a "Get E-Ticket" button will pop up instead of the "Check In" one.

E-tickets can't be canceled once you buy them, but they do have the added benefit of allowing you buy them wherever you are. Also, if you're theater supports e-ticketing and reserved seating, you can even choose your seat right from the MoviePass app! Once you get to the theater, just type in the redemption code for your e-ticket or scan the QR code.

Right now, e-ticketing with MoviePass works at Goodrich Quality Theaters, Studio Movie Grill, and MJR Theaters.

Only 2D movies are supported, at least for now

As it currently stands, you can only use your MoviePass to watch regular 2D movies. In the near future, however, that will soon be changing.

By Labor Day (September 3), MoviePass will allow you to pay an upgrade fee to see RealD 3D, IMAX 2D, 3D, and other Premium Large Format movies.

That fee will range between $2 - $5 depending on what kind of premium show you're seeing.

You can't rewatch movies

As good of a deal as MoiePass is, it's not without a few limits here and there — the first of which is the fact that you can't rewatch movies.

MoviePass experimented with letting people rewatch the same movie over and over again for a few months but eventually decided to revoke the right to prevent ticket-scalping and other misuses of the service.

It would certainly be nice to have the option of seeing a movie again that you particularly like, but don't expect this to come back anytime soon.

You can still benefit from your theater's loyalty program

If your theater has a loyalty program that rewards you with points for buying tickets and concessions, you can link it up to your MoviePass account and still get rewarded for the tickets you "buy" with your MoviePass subscription.

As it currently stands, you can link loyalty programs from Goodrich Quality Theaters, D Place Entertainment, and Starlight Cinemas.

It's an admittedly small list right now, but it's one that should only grow more and more as time goes on.

What's the deal with Peak Pricing?

MoviePass is always trying to find ways of adapting its business model as more and more people join, and one of those latest efforts is seen with Peak Pricing. On June 22, MoviePass said the following:

Under this plan, if the combination of demand for a title, date or part of day is higher, subscribers may be asked to pay a small additional fee depending on the level of demand. You can avoid this peak surcharge by choosing an alternative date or film.

In the MoviePass app, showtimes that are affected by Peak Pricing will be indicated by a red lightning bolt icon next to them. If a showtime isn't currently in Peak Pricing but might enter it soon, you'll see a grey icon.

The surcharge you'll need to pay is entirely dependent on the movie and time, but as a point of reference, the screenshots MoviePass shared show a surcharge of $3.43. Thankfully, MoviePass will launch Peak Passes in the coming weeks that'll allow you to waive the Peak Pricing fee once per month.

Peak Pricing officially launched on July 5 and is rolling out to users over the coming weeks. If you're currently subscribed to an annual or quarterly plan, you won't have to deal with Peak Pricing until your plan ends and renews.

Be mindful of the device authorization limit

If you're someone that lives the two phone life or frequently goes from device to device, you'll want to keep MoviePass's device authorization limit in mind.

To "keep your account secure", MoviePass only allows you to be signed into the MoviePass app on one phone at a time. However, if you do get a new phone or need to sign into another one for whatever reason, you can log into your account on another phone every 30 days.

Just download the app, enter your credentials, and confirm that you want to use that as your authorized device.

Updated July 12, 2018: Updated the plan information now that the iHeartRadio promo is over and added more details about premium movies.

Sprint's adding a $70/month unlimited plan and neutering its $60/month one

Sprint's adding a $70/month unlimited plan and neutering its $60/month one

The word "unlimited" is truly meaningless at this point.

U.S. carriers seem to have a hard time understanding what the word "unlimited" means, and most recently, this point is being proven once again with changes coming to Sprint's plans.

Sprint currently offers one plan called Unlimited Freedom, but starting Friday, July 13, it's being laid to rest in favor of Unlimited Basic and Unlimited Plus.

Unlimited Basic costs the same as Unlimited Freedom at $60/month for one line, but even so, is an all-around worse deal. Video streaming is now restricted to 480p instead of Unlimited Freedom's full 1080p access, and when it comes to mobile hotspot use, Unlimited Basic customers only have 500MB of LTE data to use compared to Unlimited Freedom's 10GB.

If you're not a fan of those restrictions, Sprint's more than happy to sell Unlimited Plus to you for $70/month. Unlimited Plus lets you stream in full 1080p like before, while also upgrading your mobile hotspot to 15GB of LTE data and throwing in a free subscription to Tidal's $9.99/month plan. No matter which one you choose, both new unlimited plans still come with Hulu.

A little less than a month ago, Verizon made a similar change by adding a third unlimited plan to its lineup, making customers choose between Go Unlimited, Beyond Unlimited, and Above Unlimited.

Sprint and Verizon are both trying to market these changes as a way to give their customers more choice over what they want in their plan, and while that's fine, continuing to call them "unlimited" is a flat-out lie at this point.

What is dual 4G LTE, and why should you care?

Samsung opening new 'Connected Customer Care Center' in South Carolina with 400 employees

The goal is improved customer support, but this will also generate hundreds of new jobs in Greenville.

Samsung is making it clear that the company values U.S.-based customer service by opening another massive customer service center in South Carolina. The new "Connected Customer Care Center" will open with 200 employees by the end of 2018, and will expand to 400 in total by 2020. The new center will bolster the already-large presence Samsung has in South Carolina, where there are currently 600 employees.

Phone-based customer service is bad ... and Samsung's trying to change that in the U.S.

The goal of the customer service center is to provide more, and even better, after-sales support for Samsung's growing lineup of consumer electronics — and not just the individual products, but how they can all interact and work together in your home. As these relationships between products get more complex, the customer service needs to advance with them — and this Care Center will provide additional space for training all of these employees.

The new Connected Customer Care Center will have full-time onsite training, along with what Samsung calls a "connected living lab" where customer service personnel will be able to see and use the products in person before offering support to customers. This is a level of customer support you don't always see, and is often the cause of frustration when calling in to a company for help with your product. Samsung says it will also be offering facilities for video call support for when customers need that level of help.

The hope is that you'll never have to call Samsung for support, but if you do, the experience should be better going forward than it ever has been in the past. You can thank this expansion for the improvement.

Samsung to Open State-of-the-Art Connected Customer Care Center

The world-class facility will bring 400 jobs to South Carolina and provide cutting-edge care resources to U.S. consumers

July 12, 2018 – RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. – Samsung Electronics America, Inc. today announced it is opening a new breakthrough Connected Customer Care Center in Greenville, South Carolina. The 34,928 square foot facility will support the company's move towards integrated connectivity between Samsung products and services, and ensures that not only are the company's hardware products ready for integrated multi-device use, so too are the company's critical support systems.

To date, 71 percent of U.S. households have at least one Samsung device, and nearly one third of U.S. households have three or more Samsung products. These numbers grow every day, as do the way consumers use their products. For years Samsung has been investing in delivering major, transformative benefits to the way consumers use Samsung devices – extending and expanding the way each product works together to create continuous user experiences. The new site will help support consumers' desire to seamlessly connect their devices and will ensure they get the most out of Samsung's products and service offerings.

"The way consumers are using technology devices is changing. We are entering a world in which the way consumers use and switch technology products is constant and seamless," said Michael Lawder, senior vice president of Customer Care at Samsung Electronics America. "Today's announcement goes beyond our commitment to providing superior care for Samsung products, and ensures that Samsung customers are able to receive world-class education, training and support to connect their products and maximize their use however and whenever they would like."

The facility, which will bring 200 additional Samsung support jobs to South Carolina in 2018 and a total of 400 new jobs to the region by 2020, is part of the company's continued efforts to deliver exceptional customer care at more touchpoints throughout the U.S. It will include two advanced training centers for onsite agents, a showcase of the latest Samsung products across all categories, a private and secure video chat support area, and a connected living lab with Samsung and competitive products that will allow agents to test the real-life consumer experiences. Employees will also be able to enjoy a collaborative, open work environment, an onsite café and a variety of other amenities.

Samsung will open the new site in partnership with Alorica, the world's leading platform for customer interactions. Harnessing Alorica's expertise in customer service experience, customer retention and insights from more than 600 million interactions, agents will be able to deliver augmented, streamlined customer experiences for Samsung users across the entire Samsung ecosystem of products.

The facility will be located at 901 Holland Road in Simpsonville, S.C. and will be Samsung's second customer care location in the state. The company opened up its first product support center, which employs more than 600 people, in Simpsonville, S.C. in 2009. With this new location, there will be more than 1,000 Samsung support jobs in South Carolina by 2020. In addition, earlier this year Samsung opened a $380 million home appliance manufacturing plant in nearby Newberry, S.C.

"When Samsung announced its intentions to build a manufacturing facility in Newberry, they told the people of South Carolina that they were dedicated to our community," said Gov. Henry McMaster. "At every opportunity, this fantastic company has demonstrated that commitment, and today's announcement that will create 400 new jobs in Greenville is just further proof that Samsung will be here for a very long time, investing in South Carolina and creating jobs for the people of our state."

South Carolina was chosen as the location for the Connected Customer Care Center based on the state's skilled workforce and the company's existing facilities in South Carolina. Additional details on the site as well as the building's formal ribbon cutting will be made available later this summer.

Best Smart Scale under $50

Get a better sense of your body's overall health with an affordable smart scale!

Of all the connected tech we spend our money on that claims to improve our well being, a smart scale offers the best value and information.

Far beyond the musty old bathroom scale at your parent's place, a smart scale measures much more than just your weight and conveniently delivers the data to your phone so you can track your progress and analyze your body fat percentage, muscle mass, and many more biometrics over time.

Best of all, you don't need to spend a fortune to buy a quality smart scale. These are the best smart scales for under $50!

Eufy BodySense Smart Scale

We'll start with one of the best smart scales out there, the Eufy BodySense Smart Scale. Made by Anker's fitness and health brand, this is a reliable smart scale that you will love.

This scale pairs to your phone via Bluetooth and lets you view all your data in the Eufy Life App. Up to 20 people can set up accounts and use the same scale, but it also works without being connected to the phone and will display your current weight with bright LED numbers. It also syncs nicely with both Apple and Google's fitness tracking

If you want more in-depth analysis, check out my full review from last year. It was the best scale for your money back then and still your best value at just $40.

Etekcity Smart Scale

Another similar option that's available in white is the Etekcity Smart Scale, which offers 13 essential measurements and is highly rated on Amazon.

This scale has a modern design with white LED illuminating against the white background for a nice effect.

The scale also supports unlimited member profiles so everyone in your family can track their own stats.

You can get this smart scale for just $40 on Amazon.

Weight Gurus Bluetooth Smart Scale

This is another highly rated smart scale that's a bit more expensive than the others on our list but is a worthy addition because of its design and 5-year warranty.

This scale will also display all your results on the display rather than having you check your phone, and will store the data until it syncs with your phone to transfer it over. It allows you to sync data with Fitbit, Google Fit, and Apple Health and can auto-detect up to eight unique users.

Weight Gurus is also a company that cares about people, whether it's by providing outstanding customer support or by partnering with nonprofits to help people around the world. Get yours for just $50!
