But, really, August means we’re finally going to get to see John Krasinski as Jack Ryan.  [Read More…]

UMIDIGI One Pro teardown video reveals what’s under the phone’s hood (Promoted)

What’s the deal with FM radio chips in phones?

Our smartphones nowadays have access to some advanced functions thanks, of course, to their internal components. Over the past few months and heading into the future, we’ll be focusing much of our time on 5G support.

With how advanced these current devices are it’s a shame that one of the more basic functions isn’t advertised or even widely utilized. That function? The simple FM radio.

Now, with streaming music services and keeping music files on the phone’s storage, you might be  [Read More…]

What’s new on Hulu for July 2018

And what’s leaving, too.

Tucked inside the monster that is Hulu’s July schedule is Ballet Now, a documentary about Tiler Peck, principal dancer with the New York City Ballet. That title hardly does her justice, though, as you’ll see in the trailer.

That’s beyond impressive, right? Ballet Now lands July 20.

What else to look forward to on Hulu in July? Well, it’s a long list.

What’s new on Amazon Prime Video for July 2018

Three new Amazon Originals and a bunch of old favorites!

We’re getting into the meat of summer. That means a couple things. First is that you should probably be spending a good bit of time outside. But that also means you’ll be reminded of just how great things are inside, with conditioned air, a distinct lack of bug life, and a lot less perspiration. Outside? Hot. Inside? Cool. With loads to watch on TV — an specifically on Amazon  [Read More…]

… and what’s leaving in July.

What’s your favorite phone/dialer app?

A question for those of you that still make phone calls.

As much time as we spend tweeting, streaming Netflix, and wasting the day away on Reddit, our smartphones were originally designed to make — you guessed it — phone calls.

Phone calls may not be a huge part of how you use your phone anymore, but even so, there are a number of apps out there that try to make the phone call experience as awesome  [Read More…]

MediaTek mobile processors: What’s the difference between ’em?

If you’ve got an Android smartphone – and let’s be honest, since you’re reading this you probably do – you’ve heard of Qualcomm and its Snapdragon processors.

Snapdragon is typically known as the processor of choice for Android smartphones, whether its in a high-end Samsung flagship or an entry-level, T-Mobile-branded ZTE device.

Alas, Qualcomm isn’t the only name in the processor game; the China-based MediaTek is its biggest competitor, especially in countries that aren’t the U.S.

If you thought Qualcomm’s  [Read More…]

What’s the difference: LG V30 vs LG G7 ThinQ vs LG V35 ThinQ

LG has traditionally released devices the same time as its biggest rival, Samsung, but after beating the Galaxy S8 to launch in 2017 with its G6, and still getting trounced by it in sales, the company decided a change in strategy is needed.

Ever since CES 2018, we’ve heard LG was planning to alter its strict yearly release cycle. CEO Cho Sung-jin said the company “will unveil new smartphones when it is needed. But we will not launch it just  [Read More…]
