It’s a feature that Netflix has been rumored to have both considered and discarded in recent times, but it seems that the video streaming service has finally decided to offer the ability to download content to watch at a later date. Being able to download content means that it’s going to be easier to watch your favorite Netflix shows, especially useful if you don’t have access to high-speed WiFi, or you don’t have network coverage while you are out and about.
We’re guessing it’s highly unlikely for you and a friend to get together to drop your very expensive phones from midair just to see if they survive even though you know they really won’t.
We’ve talked about it many times before, but Google’s Pixel is more than just a device that competes with flagship devices in the specs department. The devices are also priced in line with what you’d expect from, say, a Galaxy S or an iPhone, and Google plans on shipping millions of these things over the next year.
When the Galaxy S8 launches in 2017, Samsung will get praise for pushing boundaries and utilizing high-end specifications. There’s just one thing on paper that might not stand out but will make a huge difference to future owners of the phone. It has nothing to do with the display, processor, or battery. Not even the rear camera is involved.
One of the biggest changes for the Galaxy S8 could be in the front-facing camera.
When the Gear S3 launched, Samsung clarified that it would support Samsung Pay and it would work with any Android device running Android 4.4 KitKat and newer. It was pretty awesome news, and meant that Samsung Pay would be able to spread to tons more people, not just Samsung users.
One of the most popular desires for smartphones these days, aside from longer lasting batteries, is a device with as little bezel as possible. Despite some usability benefits from having a bezel, a smartphone where the display covers all or most of the front gives off a very sleek and futuristic appearance, as well as allow for larger screens with a smaller physical size. If these new concept images for a nearly bezel-free Nubia phone prove to be true, then these wishes may soon be granted.

There wasn’t a whole lot wrong with the OnePlus 3, and our very own Jared Peters went as far as to say that the “Third time’s the charm” in his review. That didn’t deter OnePlus from retiring the OP3 from service, though, and replacing it with a slightly updated version called the OnePlus 3T that went on sale in the US on November 22, and has just been released in Europe. What better way is there to celebrate the European release of the OnePlus 3T than an unboxing video while on a MIG 15 fighter jet undergoing high-G maneuvers? Join us after the break for the embedded video.
Need to treat yourself to Google’s hardware? The Google Store is hosting a Black Friday 2016 sale on select devices.
The Xperia X is a great phone, as long as you aren’t paying attention to the price tag. Sony priced it just a bit too high for the market it competes in, which tends to be a problem with Xperia devices.
With the advent of Google’s new Pixel range of smartphones in 2016, the Nexus line has been discontinued. The Nexus 5X was one of the last models in the line-up and it seems that the LG-manufactured handset has some boot loop issues, which is reminiscent of the LG G4. With the Nexus 5X no longer being produced, spare parts are either scarce or non-existent, resulting in LG taking the bold step of offering full refunds as opposed to repairing the affected phone or replacing it with a refurbished or even new handset.
To celebrate Thanksgiving, Google and BuzzFeed partnered up to bring a BuzzFeed sticker pack to Google’s new instant messaging service, Allo.
