Samsung and Disney release new Frozen AR Emojis for Galaxy S9 and S9+

Image
Samsung has found a new way to keep the focus on the not so well sold Galaxy S9 and S9+ smartphones, and it simply won't let go. The AR Emojis introduced along with this year's flagships seem to be quite popular among Galaxy S9/S9+ users, or maybe Samsung wants people to be interested in them.

In any case, after releasing the Incredibles characters to be added as AR Emojis on the two phones, Samsung and Disney announced today that a new set of emojis is now available for download.

However, this time around Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ users can create AR avatars of Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and ...

Apple Pay dominates mobile wallet market

According to Juniper, a digital market research firm, contactless payments are on the rise globally. The amount of money paid via this method is set to double by 2020 and is already set to pass $1 trillion USD this year. It is important to note that this entire amount is not attributed to mobile wallet systems like Google Pay, but includes contactless card payments as well. As a matter of fact, contactless cards make up 55 percent of the market share globally. While contactless transactions are projected to reach $2 trillion by 2020, $300 billion of that total will be accomplished through ...

Mystery Xiaomi phone seen on regulatory website in China could be the Mi Note 4 with transparent back

The Xiaomi Mi Note 4 might have made an appearance a few days ago on the the website of Chinese telecom regulator TENAA. The images of a phone with the model number M1807E8A were discovered on the site with the date of July 27th posted. These images reveal that at least one variant of the device will sport a transparent back cover, similar to the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition. As we told you earlier today, the "mainboard" that appears through the transparent cover on the Mi 8 Explorer Edition is not the real board that is used to power the phone.

Unlocked BlackBerry KEYone for Verizon priced at $350 with one simple condition

This just might be the lowest price we've seen yet on a new BlackBerry KEYone. Best Buy is selling the unlocked KEYone for Verizon priced at only $349.99. That is a savings of $150 or 30% from the big box retailer's usual price. But you must activate the phone on Big Red today. Wait until later to activate the device, and you'll pay $399.99 for a savings of $100, or 25%.

Samsung's Q2 results are in: weak Galaxy S9 sales contribute to 4% revenue decline

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+
Falling in line with the company’s previous financial guidance report for Q2 2018, Samsung has today confirmed that its sales for the three-month period ending June 2018 totaled $52.28 billion, representing a year-on-year decline of roughly four percent. However, on a slightly more positive note, the company’s operating profit actually rose 6 percent versus last year to $13.28 billion.
Breaking these figures down, the company notes that the increase in profit can be largely attributed to its semiconductor business, ...

With the update, the beta label has been removed from the battery health feature first released in iOS 11.3. This was added to iOS following the news that Apple had unilaterally throttled certain older iPhone models; these units were shutting down when faced with complex tasks due to the weak batteries inside them.

Analyst says the number of iPhone units sold in a quarter is not as important as the Average Selling Price

Wall Street is all strapped in and ready to buy or sell Apple's shares in bunches. Tomorrow, after the market closes, the company will report its fiscal third quarter earnings. Traditionally, this is the weakest period of the year for sales of Apple's smartphone since most consumers are awaiting the new models to be unveiled in September. As we noted the other day, the consensus of 17 Wall Street and independent analysts is that Apple will report sales of 42.05 million units during the period from April through June. That would represent a small 2.4% year-over-year gain.

Top-of-the-line Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition debuts in China, sells out in seconds

The top-of-the-line Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition has a transparent back that seemingly allows you to see the phone's "mainboard" through the back panel (see the image at the top of this story). When questioned at the time, the company said that the board is real and is not just a sticker strategically placed to trick your eyes. But Xiaomi was asked the wrong question, because while the board is real, it is not the one actually used to drive the handset. What you are looking at through the transparent rear panel is a secondary board that doesn't connect to anything, doesn't do anything, and ...

Samsung Galaxy Watch (Gear S4) vs Google Pixel Watch: what we expect

Word is, we are about to be treated to a couple of pretty exciting smartwatches in the second half of 2018. These being the Samsung Galaxy Watch — previously known as the Gear S4 — and the Google Pixel Watch.

Samsung's wearables have been really popular over the past couple of years and for good reason — they look nice, they've got battery for days, and support both Android and iOS.

Do you play Fortnite on your iPhone at all?

Image
It has been a while since the inexplicably popular game Fortnite made itself a bridge and came over to the land of mobile. And boy, was it an arrival. Thanks to its massive success on consoles and PC, Fortnite very easily got the attention of mobile gamers.

Within three months of its launch, it has already made $150 million in revenue, thanks to in-app purchases.

And it's worth noting that, while Fortnite is a "freemium" game, it does not adopt a "pay to win" style. All purchases are for cosmetic items — spending money in the game does not give one a better gun, armor, or any other ...

The Samsung Galaxy S9+ will usually set you back about $839.99 nowadays. Yeah, it's a bit expensive, but hey — it's Sammy's big flagship!

What's so special about it? Well, it rocks a dual camera module on the back, much like the Note 8, giving you a nice Portrait Mode. But the main camera has been updated, too, with a variable aperture that can swap between F1.5 and F2.4 via a cool-looking mechanism. As far as internals, you ...

The afterlife of your smartphone – is the planet paying too much for our luxury?

Image
Changing mobile phones has been part of our lives for quite a while now. Whether you're doing it every year or once in three years, you will eventually get a new one. Even if you keep your old device as a back-up, down the line there's always one that is now obsolete.

We decided to take a look at the smartphone industry and see what resources are used for the manufacturing of our devices and how much of them is being reused or wasted.

In 2017 alone, 1.45 billion smartphones were produced globally. Of course, not all of them replaced an existing device, some sales are to first time ...

Samsung's new Galaxy Watch gets closer to release with radio certification

Image
By now, even the house pet got it that Samsung will be rebranding its Gear line of accessories and wearables with the Galaxy one, to fit in with its more popular portfolio of smartphones. Perhaps the most visible change will land in the form of the Galaxy Watch. Samsung's upcoming most popular wearable won't carry the Gear S4 title, it seems, and it is very close to release, perhaps even with the Note 9's Unpacked event next week.
It got certified by the FCC, and now the Galaxy Watch radios have been approved by its Korean equivalent. The North American model numbers are SM-R815U ...

Galaxy S9 flop - what went wrong and what's next for Samsung?

Image
The world’s largest smartphone vendor is also the only other key mobile industry player apart from Apple that’s been able to consistently make money over the past few years. But Samsung’s recent prosperity is largely connected with a thriving semiconductor business rather than strong Galaxy S9 or S8 sales.
Granted, the market as a whole is stagnating, and you could hardly call the iPhone X a runaway hit. Then again, considering the swift growth of companies like Huawei, Xiaomi, and Oppo, including in the Western high-end segment, simply blaming an OEM’s rut on the industry “climate”, ...

Best wireless chargers for iPhone and Samsung Galaxy phones (2018)

Image
Article last updated on July 30, 2018: Added wireless chargers by Anker and Spigen. 
Fun fact: the first smartphone to feature wireless charging appeared all the way back in 2009. It was the Palm Pre, one of the most forward-looking phones ever released. Today, smartphones with wireless charging are more common then ever, and if you take a look at the high-end portion of the market, you'll have a hard time finding a phone with no built-in support for this undoubtedly convenient feature.

However, to take advantage of your phone's support for wireless charging, ...

T-Mobile gets a step ahead in the 5G race

Image
As mobile carriers in the States gear up to provide users with 5G connectivity, we'll start hearing about the different stages they've reached during the process. Today, T-Mobile's CTO, Neville Ray, boasted on Twitter that the company has achieved the first simultaneous, non-standalone 5G NR and 4G LTE connection.

That sounds like a mouthful, so let's break it down a bit. We're all familiar with 4G LTE, so no need to focus on it. 5G, as the name implies, is the next generation technology for data transfer between mobile devices. As with most things technology related, there are some added ...
