Pokemon GO Sprint ads as notifications: Are you kidding me?

Pokemon GO Sprint ads as notifications: Are you kidding me?

Notifications from the Pokemon GO app arrived this week with a promotion from Sprint encouraging phone buys. This was not the first time Niantic sent a notification to users on iPhone and Android devices, but it was the first time they pushed for an outside buy. In this rather blatant advertisement this morning, Niantic promised a reward of in-game currency to users who switched from their current mobile provider to Sprint.

Google Maps Go is now a go for Android Go

Google Maps Go is now a go for Android Go

Google has just recently launched Android Go, the “half-version” of Android meant for phones with even more constrained hardware. But a “lite” Android is just half the equation and you’ll need lite apps to go with it. That was true for Search Go (formerly Search Lite) and Files Go, but there are still a lot of Google apps that need to go on a diet. The newest to join that group is Maps Go, now available on Play Store but not available for anyone. That is, unless you know its secret.

Pokemon GO Gen 3: Map the new nests!

This morning we're having a peek at the contents of the newest wave of Pokemon GO monsters. This newest set of Pokemon includes a whole bunch of - but not all of - the Pokemon from HOENN. That means Gen 3, or Generation 3, the Pokemon we've been waiting for since the beginning! Of the Pokemon released so far, we've created a list of 16 (and maybe more) Pokemon that officially nest - that means they'll be easier to find in large numbers, just so long as you know where to look!

Huawei’s Galaxy Note-like Mate 10 Pro tipped Verizon-bound

No, one isn't acquiring the other - but this may be the first time Huawei's come forward with some real competition for both the Samsung Galaxy series and the iPhone. The Huawei Mate 10 Pro is a massive smartphone with a unique look and both hardware and software to back up its claim to glory.

Galaxy S9 may set new power benchmark

This week we're having a peek at what the Samsung Galaxy S9 may well bring to the smartphone universe in 2018. One item we're almost certain will be onboard is the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, and with it, the swiftest charging solution ever released for a smartphone battery. That is to say Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.

This iPhone X clone has some odd origins

This iPhone X clone has some odd origins

The company is called Leagoo, and their business is copying the look and feel of popular smartphones. Leagoo took the opportunity this month to create a copy of the iPhone X, taking into consideration the notch at the top of the front display. The price of this device is almost certainly comparable to the rest of the phones the company has in stock: just over a couple hundred dollars (converted to USD.)

Synaptics Clear ID in-display fingerprint scanner to go on a “Tier 1” phone

Synaptics Clear ID in-display fingerprint scanner to go on  a “Tier 1” phone

Too late the hero perhaps? Synaptics has just proudly announced that its Clear ID FS9500, which is perhaps the world’s first commercial in-display fingerprint scanner, has already started production. More than a year too late for it to do any good for the likes of Samsung and Apple. Synaptics doesn’t seem to be worried, however, as that same announcement reveals that the mass production is for a “Tier 1 OEM”. So let the guessing game begin!

Apple App Store now offers pre-orders, launch notifications

Apple App Store now offers pre-orders, launch notifications

Apple exercises a firm and strict hold on anything and everything that gets into its App Store, and for good reason. Not only does it ensure the quality of the app selection, it also ensures the integrity of Apple’s name. In the past, it only allowed for apps that are already available and not those yet to come. That changed with Super Mario Run last year which, for the first time, was offered as a pre-order. Now Apple is opening the doors to all app developers and users at large, allowing users to sign up, get notified, and get charged when an app finally launches.

Today we're having a peek at the Galaxy S9, what Samsung phone lovers will likely be considering when it's time to trade in their Galaxy S7 or S8 this Spring. This next smartphone from Samsung will almost certainly come in two sizes, the same sort of release pair that've come from the company over the last few years. The images and specifications you'll be looking at below should not be used as a guide for what to bet on this February, but as guidance for what'll be especially likely.

Four wild new Sony phones rumored for 2018 release

Four wild new Sony phones rumored for 2018 release

A new set of Sony phones might change the companys fortunes with full-body displays and under-screen fingerprint readers. That is, if these images prove to be indicative of actual products. While a surprising number of blogs are reporting the images you see here as photographic proof of the existence of these devices, we're not quite so ready to take these images at their word - not at first, anyway.
