Has your phone replaced your camera?
details
It's that time of the year when we get all the latest bits on the camera industry: Photokina. Of course we're there and covering it [1]. I know it's still early but one thing I'm noticing is we're not getting a ton of announcements for point and shoot cameras. Sure, Canon has a fancy new rival with the RX 100. Panasonic followed up with the update the LX7. But these are higher end cameras commanding something in the $500-700 price range.
As our phones get more and more powerful, we're getting... Read more →

How often do you upgrade your phone?
details
http://i.imgur.com/itTFPey.gif
We're getting a lot of exciting phone announcements over the last week.
IFA gave us the following:
  • Galaxy Note Edge
  • Galaxy Note 4
  • Samsung Galaxy Alpha
  • LG G3 Stylus
  • Sony Xperia Z3
  • Sony Xperia Z3 Compact
That same week Motorola also showcased the following:
  • Moto X
  • Moto G
And tomorrow is Apple's big day where we'll likely be seeing a new iPhone (or two).
The thing is, even with all this exciting new stuff I don't have any urge to upgrade. I bought my iPhone 5S on release day and a... Read more →

Lost device
details
Do you know that by using the Android device manager you can find your phone’s location if it’s stolen or lost. You can even make a call to your device even if the SIM card is replaced by a new one. You can lock your device remotely even erase all the confidential data. I found this info in here, http://www.spinfold.com/less-known-android-feature...

Have you replaced your remotes with a mobile device?
details
http://www.blogcdn.com/www.engadget.com/media/2013/06/logitech-harmony-ultimate-hub.jpg
Ever since I picked up a Harmony One I have been singing its praises. To me it's the perfect device for the living room with its sleek profile and convenient to reach buttons. This is why it pains me every time I go to use it and notice buttons not responding as well as they once did: it's on its last legs. Naturally, these aren't made anymore and the options from Logitech aren't great. The Hub is a... Read more →

Switching Carriers - How to get the best deal?
details
I've been a T-Mo user for a number of years, and for the most part have been very happy. Unfortunately, I recently moved somewhere a little more remote, and the coverage is too frustrating. I need to switch to one of the big 2, either ATT or Verizon. I do get a service discount from my employer for AT&T, so I'm definitely leaning that way.
Now to choose 2 phones, and make sure I get the best intro deal. Is it best to shop online, or will I be better off calling and talking to sales? Or can I... Read more →

Is Amazon's Fire Phone worth caring about?
details

Just a few hours ago, Jeff Bezos took the stage to announce Amazon's latest hardware venture: Fire Phone.
It mostly has spec parity with many of today's popular smartphones: large screen (4.7 inches), nice resolution (1280x720), fast processor (2.2GHz), and a seemingly good camera (13MP). However, Amazon is also introducing a few new tidbits: the screen features "Dynamic Perspective" which adjusts the... Read more →

How do you manage the mobile data crunch?
details
http://i.imgur.com/eFdXvKT.jpg
Recently, I started taking a more serious look at how much mobile data I've been using. My Verizon plan provided me with 4GB of data per month (plus allowed me to use a mobile hotspot).
After looking at how I've been using my data, I've used more than **2GB** exactly once in the last year: ~3.2GB for December. Well, enough throwing away money!
So, I dropped down to the lowest tier (2GB / month, no mobile hotspot). Go figure, the moment I do this, I start to run into... Read more →

Galaxy S5 Cases
details
Does anyone know of any good cases for a GS5 that cover up the shitty plastic look but keep it thin? Usually I would go for lifeproof but a) they don't have any cases for it yet and b) that seems redundant since they went to the trouble of making it water resistant. (also I know that lifeproof doesn't make for a great looking case either, but its a trade off I'll take when it means that an iPhone can go through a sheet of drywall without any damage)

Will we ever see cheaper phones?
details
http://media.engadget.com/img/products/508/awcd/awcd-460.jpg
OnePlus finally took the covers off their One phone (I don't get the name either) and it's pretty impressive. It has the specs to stand against some of the top flagships out there and comes in at $300, which is about half the price of major flagships. The two potential downsides are the battery is not removable, and it only has 16GB of storage with no microSD slot. However for only $50 more you can get 64GB of storage instead.
The phone... Read more →

Upgrading from a Droid Bionic
details
Next month, I get to upgrade and I think I want to break away from the useless Verizon crap apps that fill up the Bionic. Will either the S5 or the HTCOne M8 be any better than Moto in this case? (Does anyone use the Verizon subscription mapping? EVER?) Or will I still suffer from Verizon's crapware infection?

Unfortunately, leaving Verizon is not an option for me at this point. And are the other carriers any better?

S5 or M8? and Why?
details
I am really stuck here. I lost my S3 and have been waiting for these two phones to launch. Now that the time is here, I cannot decide! I have Samsung accessories, but the M8 is coming out with some pretty awesome accessories. The S5 has a removable battery (which I LOVE!). Its also water resistant, but I can Liquipel the M8. The S5 also supports Qi Wireless Charging as the M8 does not. Hoping one of you can help me decide. I greatly appreciate it!

LTE Bands?
details
Is there any clarity on LTE base bands?
Will there be several models that do not share worldwide compatibility just like the S4 or will the S5 support more bands? I would love a version that is AT&T compatible and would also work on 4G networks in Europe!
