Sony, as is typically the case during Mobile World Congress, unveiled a range of new Xperia smartphones. This year, they gave us the Xperia XZ Premium and Xperia XZs. The XZs is supposed to appeal to the budget crowd who still wants decent specs, while the XZ Premium is attempting to be as premium as it gets, with 4K display and Snapdragon 835. (more…)
We are nearly a month away (March 29) from the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, but as we draw closer to that date, we’re likely to see more leaks and intel regarding the devices, simply because that’s how this industry tends to work. In the latest development, two hands-on videos have hit the web, giving us pretty solid looks at what we can expect from Samsung. (more…)
For years, Cricket Wireless plans have been some of the best bang-for-your-buck plans in the entire industry. Their $70 unlimited offering, for example, which costs $65 after a $5 autopay credit, has always been truly “unlimited” without a cap or the “network management” we see on other carrier plans.

The new Gear VR with Controller features 42mm lenses with 101-degree field of view (FOV) and “advanced distortion correction technology to minimize motion sickness.” Like the previous gen model, it also lets you swap between microUSB and USB Type-C depending on your phone’s port. As a new feature, since it has a controller, Samsung added in a special strap to hold the controller when not in use. (more…)
Samsung may not have announced the Galaxy S8 at MWC today, but they did show off their new Android-powered tablet, the Galaxy Tab S3. We knew this bad boy was coming, so let’s run through the official details.
To start, Samsung isn’t saying how much this tablet will cost or when you can buy it. Weird, I know, but that’s the situation we are in. Should they make that info available, you’ll get a high-end tablet in a world that isn’t filled with many tablets anymore. (more…)
