Galaxy S7 Edge glimpsed in-hand with benchmark

Galaxy S7 Edge glimpsed in-hand with benchmark

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge appears to be photographed by a user in China just weeks before its public release. This is the closest cousin to the Samsung Galaxy S7, and a device that's closest in form to the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. It's big. It's pretty gosh-darned massive compared to the Galaxy Notes that went before it. It has no S Pen. It's all about flaunting the edge on a big, big surface.

Samsung Galaxy S7 in-hand photo appears, flaunting backside

An unidentified smartphone appears in a photo whose creator suggests depicts a Samsung Galaxy S7. This device would roll with features mentioned in tips and rumors from the past several weeks, but appears to have several bits and pieces that don't quite fit the bill. First - the metal. While previous Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 models had silver metal rims around their camera arrays, this one returns to plastic - or at least appears to.

4-inch iPhone makes perfect sense for rumored Apple event in March

4-inch iPhone makes perfect sense for rumored Apple event in March

Apple's next event has been rumored to be taking place in Mid-march - there the company is likely to shake the industry up by splitting iPhone releases in two: one early in the year, two later on. With rumors of the iPhone 5se on the rise and Apple's most recent earnings call proving that iPhone sales won't be continuing to skyrocket through the future, it's prime time for the company to flip their script. Instead of centering all attention on an iPhone 7, (and its closest relative, an iPhone 7 Plus), the company will break from tradition, coming to terms with the way users around the world are watching releases.

Samsung Galaxy S7 release date, price, specs, features to boost software stronghold

Samsung Galaxy S7 release date, price, specs, features to boost software stronghold

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge models suggest that the company will stick with model sizes that developers need not change for. After years of changing the innards and outsides of the Samsung Galaxy hero smartphone lineup, Samsung appears to have stuck with what works - and, in the process, they're about to create an environment that's strong enough for developers to invest time and effort into the platform. As it is with Apple's iPhones and their rarely-changing display densities, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will follow the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Plus' leads.

Surface is finally working for Microsoft

Surface is finally working for Microsoft

Microsoft's fiscal year 2016 Q2 earnings aren't looking so hot unless you know where to look: right at Surface. Windows OEM Pro revenue growth is down 6% year-over-year, one percentage point better than the first quarter, but still down compared to one year ago this quarter. Windows OEM non-Pro revenue growth is down 3% year-over year, while Windows volume licensing revenue growth is down 4% year-over-year. Search Advertising Revenue, Xbox Live active users, and Surface revenue are all on the rise.

Huawei Mate 8 Review

Huawei Mate 8 Review

The Huawei Mate 8 (or NXT-L29 as it is also known) asks you to make a fundamental choice about what you are looking for in a phone. Or rather, it makes that decision for you by way of its generous form factor. The Mate 8 certainly puts the 'phab' in phablet - it's fast, features a beautiful display, and offers enough battery power to jumpstart your car - but along the way it also requires its users to accept some very specific compromises to how they use the device on a daily basis. It also charges a significant premium over its primary competitors both Apple and Android, despite not exactly matching its peers on the spec sheet.

Starry Station router is simple, beautiful, and IoT-ready

Founder of now-defunct Aero is back with a new company, and it is called Starry.

Starry is in the process of deploying the first millimeter wave band active phased array technology for consumer-level Internet, but ahead of that comes something different: Starry Station, a router.

Acer Predator 17 gaming laptop Review: Big Red

Acer Predator 17 gaming laptop Review: Big Red

The Acer Predator 17 is not just a good first-shot from a relatively new gaming line, it's a darn good notebook in and of itself. This laptop is large enough to give you a full gaming experience without being so bulky you'll never move it from your desk. This laptop is also clearly a gaming machine, but doesn't look like you decided on your hardware's look when you were young and foolish. In short - this is the gaming laptop you want if you're not afraid to go big, but don't want to drop cash on just any ol' run-of-the-mill flashy gamer unit.
