Bring your phone and number to Google Fi and get one free month of service

Image
Google recently rebranded its Project Fi service and word is that the MVNO will expand its portfolio with support for more devices from brands like Samsung, OnePlus and even Apple. Until then, the newly launched Google Fi is running deals on all the phones it sells, including the Pixel 3.

A slightly newer promotion now available from Google Fi offers new customers who bring their device and number an entire month of service for free. The limited time offer runs from November 29 to December 16 and is aimed at new Fi customers who sign for the new service during the promotion.

As mentioned ...

Apple's ad for Group FaceTime will leave you all shook up

Image
With Group FaceTime available with iOS 12.1, Apple iPhone and iPad users can participate in a 32-way video chat. The tile showing the person speaking will get larger automatically, as will the tiles of those participating the most in the conversation. Group FaceTime is available on the iPhone 6s or later, iPad Pro or later, iPad Air 2, or the iPad Mini 4. Earlier models can be involved in a Group FaceTime chat through an audio connection only.
Apple today released a new ad for Group FaceTime. And what better way to show how this new feature works than by having a number ...

Deal: Save nearly $100 when you buy the BlackBerry KEYone on Amazon and B&H

Image
The BlackBerry KEYone is more than a year old, but its price has never dropped below $300, even though we're talking about a pure mid-range smartphone. Although it's been discounted many times in the past, we can't say that you could score a great deal buying one.

Currently, the smartphone sells in the United States for around $400 at various carriers and retailers. If you still wish to buy one, Amazon and B&H have one of the best deal we've seen on the smartphone.

For example, Amazon has the BlackBerry KEYone (64GB, 4GB RAM) black model for just $309, while B&H offers the ...

YouTube Stories are rolling out to creators with over 10K subscribers

Image
YouTube last year launched a Snapchat Stories-like feature called "Reel." Never heard of it? Well, that's because YouTube rolled it out to only a very tiny number of highly-popular channels (as is the norm). However, the company is now expanding the feature — and just calling it "Stories" — to a much larger pool of creators.
According to a new report by The Verge, YouTube is going to allow channels with 10,000 or more subscribers to post temporary videos. So, what makes YouTube Stories different from any other short-lived videos out there? Well, it's the same concept, but ...

Microsoft reveals major redesign of Office App icons, here is what they look like

Image
It's been five years since the Office icons were updated, so Microsoft's today announcement is definitely something that the company marks as a major achievement. Responding to its customer feedback, Microsoft has finally decided that its Office icons need a redesigned.

The release of the new icons is just a pretext for Microsoft to explain the whole process behind it. The new colors the Redmond-based company chose for these icons are meant to be bolder, lighter and friendlier to the eye.

Update to Swiftkey app for Android adds Bing search integration

Image
Considering that the Swiftkey QWERTY keyboard app has been owned by Microsoft for more than two years, you have to wonder why it took so long for Bing search integration to be tested for the keyboard app. Bing, of course, is also owned by the software giant. According to Windows Central, the Android version of the Swiftkey app now features a Bing search box on the left side of the keyboard's toolbar. When a user taps on it, the box opens allowing for a Bing search to be conducted.
The good news for those taking advantage of the new feature, is that they can search ...

Mid-range HTC U11 Life with Android One scores official Pie update in Europe

Image
In case you hadn’t realized it, Google’s Android One program is a pretty big deal. In fact, it’s so important for combatting the age-old fragmentation issue that it’s currently allowing a mid-range phone from last year to receive the newest OS version before a 2018 high-ender.
Yup, the HTC U11 Life is the company’s very first device to leave Oreo behind in favor of a delicious Android 9.0 Pie update rolling out over-the-air as we speak in parts of Europe. Meanwhile, owners of the newer U12+ and faster U11 and U11+ from 2017 are still waiting.

Android: How to disable Facebook Messenger chat heads

Image
First introduced way back in 2013, Facebook's chat heads represent a quick way to keep in touch with your friends while on the go. For some time now, chat heads have been integrated into the Facebook Messenger app (which is separate from the main Facebook application, but pretty much just as popular), so most users are familiar with them.

When you install Facebook Messenger on an Android device, chat heads are enabled by default. Since not everyone likes this, we're going to show you how get rid of chat heads. Of course, it's easy to dismiss a chat head once this appears: just tap it, hold ...

Waves of static appear on some OnePlus 6T displays (VIDEO)

A few posts found on the OnePlus product forum (via Android Police) complain about a wave of static that some OnePlus 6T users are seeing on their screens. These complaints date back to the first week of this month and now total three pages full of posts related to this problem. In addition, a video released by a OnePlus 6T user a couple of weeks ago, shows how this static affects the display (view the video at the top of this article).

World's first blockchain smartphone is finally available for purchase

Although HTC Exodus 1 is probably a more familiar name that many would associate with the concept of blockchain smartphone, Finney is, in fact, the world's first blockchain smartphone. Developed by Sirin Labs, Finney is now commercially available to everyone who can't wait to dabble with cryptocurrency.

Originally revealed back in September 2017, Finney's specs and price were announced in May. If you've placed a pre-order using the company's Sirin Labs Tokens (SRN), then you already got the phone $100 cheaper, otherwise, you'll have to pay $1,000 for the Finney.

Wearable shipments to rise over 25% next year says Gartner, led by smartwatch deliveries

Image
Analytical firm Gartner is expecting strength in the wearable device market next year. The company is calling for shipments of wearables to rise by 25.8% in 2019. Consumers will spend $42 billion to purchase these products in 2019, with smartwatches responsible for $16.2 billion of that amount. Gartner's senior director, Alan Antin, says that the Average Selling Price (ASP) of smartwatches is being held up by the stable price of the Apple Watch. Still, Antin sees the ASP of these connected timepieces dropping from $221.99 in 2018 to $210 in 2022 as low priced competition enters the market, ...

A slidable phone which also folds? That's what Samsung's latest patent envisions

Image
The Samsung Galaxy S9
In the hope of avoiding notched displays, a number of Chinese manufacturers have turned towards slidable formats which allow front-facing cameras to be hidden behind the display. Alongside this, some companies are hard at work on foldable devices. But from the look of a new patent, Samsung could soon combine these two formats.
From the front, the device in question looks just like a traditional smartphone – it even sports Samsung’s trademark physical home button from years ago – while, over on the rear, it isn’t ...

Foldable Galaxy F functionality gets hinted at in new Samsung patent

Earlier this month, Samsung confirmed that its foldable smartphone is on the way by demoing a heavily camouflaged version of it. Today, though, the South Korean giant has been granted a new patent which hints quite strongly at how the device could work.
The smartphone described in the patent utilizes two edge-to-edge displays placed next to each other rather than one large bendable display. But functionality-wise, it seems the smartphone will work just like the upcoming Galaxy F.
Thanks to the One UI system overlay that Samsung has developed with foldable smartphones in mind, ...

Best over-ear and on-ear wireless headphones to buy in 2018

Smartphones with a headphone jack may soon become a rarity. Even staunch defenders of the analog output like OnePlus have axed it from their devices.
