Included with the last press release along side the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket was the announcement of the HTC Vivid. I Thought we should focus on these two devices separately since the Vivid is not a follow up to an already released device. You may remember the Vivid by its code name, HTC Raider [...]
Dave: It has been nearly 6 months since I switched from my Galaxy Note 4 tothe Nexus 6p. Getting the chance to put the S7 Edge through its paces is a goodreminder of several features that are sadly missing from the 6p that I occasionallystill long for. Plus getting to play with the latest and greatest tech is always a perk.Dave: I receivedthe silverversion of the Samsung S7 Edge.
GoPro VR will launch tomorrow (Monday) on the web, along with VR headset-friendly iOS and Android apps in their respective stores. The platform will host curated GoPro VR video content, similar to how its existing on-demand video channel works for "regular" footage.

HTC had stopped listening, but it learned its lesson with the new HTC 10 . Back in 2013 HTC unveiled the flagship One M7, and was widely praised for its unibody design, purposefully different approach to phone photography, and overall user-experience.
It would appear that this year is a particularly bad one for keeping thing secret. We’ve already seen the various leaks surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S7, but it appears we now have a full frontal shot of the HTC One M10 in white as well. Coming to us from serial leaker, @evleaks, we get a look at HTC ‘s new flagship smartphone front on, although the screen has been blurred out.
It's now under a day before the HTC 10 is revealed, complete with what we expect will be an iconic build and new software to boot. This device will be the second big-name release of the year, coming in right beside the surprise home run in the HTC Vive , a virtual reality headset that runs with Valve's SteamVR.
Where is HTC's missing mobile VR gear? Wasn't this supposed to be the age of virtual reality - desktop VR and mobile VR, too? If you listen to Samsung - who've teamed up with Oculus to create the Samsung Gear VR - then yes, the age of mobile VR has begun.
No more rumors and no more waiting as Samsung officially announced that it's really launching a pink version of the newest premium flagship smartphones. The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge Pink Gold edition will soon be available for purchase but only in select key markets.
The original Tomb Raider games were among the first great shooter/adventure games for consoles. Sure, there were others before, but Tomb Raider created a legacy that is still loved, and is still getting built upon to this day. Unfortunately, like most games released in the 90's, the graphics really haven't held up. But someone is trying to fix that.
Synaptics has always been a name known for its human interface solutions. We learned about it first when Samsung used its natural ID technology for the Galaxy Note 4 a couple of years ago. New fingerprint sensors for mobile devices were produced earlier in 2015 and then followed by a touch controller solution called ClearForce .
Samsung is bringing back the Galaxy Amp. In partnership with Cricket Wireless, the South Korean company will releasethe Prime version of the 5-inch feature smartphone. Don't think that it's a less powerful device as it already connects to 4G/LTE and runs the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
We already spotted the 2016 Samsung Galaxy S7 on TENAA a couple of weeks ago and we knew that the device is almost ready for launch. Samsung has yet to unveil the smartphone but image renders recently surfaced on China Mobile. This means launch is happening very soon. So far, here's what we know about the specs of the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016): a 5.
Verizon sent me short term loaner unit of the LG G5 a couple weeks ago and I’ve been holding off reviewing it until I received the camera grip module. Since the grip module isn’t due to get here for another week or so, I thought I’d go ahead and split the review into two parts and post part one now that offers my initial impressions of the phone.
Dave: I have been a VR skeptic for a while now. I have historically put it in the same category as 3D televisions. I’ve thought they are a trendy novelty and at best a niche product. Several friends havethe developer Oculus Rift and did their best to show/convince me how cool it was. But all I saw was a glitchy, pixelated world that never really came into focus.
If you don't know the name John Romero, then you might not be old enough to remember the early days of FPS games. He's one of the minds behind games like Wolfenstein, Doom, and Quake. He's teaming up with Adrian Carmack, the artist who helped bring those same titles to life, to make a brand new FPS, titled BLACKROOM.
Didn't we just learn about the Spring Break promo from T-Mobile ? Now the mobile carrier is announcing its Summer deals. The ultimate Un-carrier is getting ready to offer America the best promos in time for summer vacation for the children and summer break for the adults. The families will greatly benefit from the Family Match deal on T-Mobile Simple Choice.
Android has a fragmentation problem, but HTC believes the new HTC 10 is the first step toward fixing it. The company's new 2016 flagship doesn't go the whole "Nexus" route and abandon HTC Sense altogether, but it does benefit from a more nuanced approach to software add-ons and confusing preloads.
If everybody loves an underdog story, why aren't more people buying HTC phones? That's the question the Android stalwart must be puzzling over, having spent the past four to five years trying to figure out how to be "critic's choice" rather than "also-ran" in the smartphone space.
