Study tries to measure fitness trackers' actual accuracy, Apple Watch wins first round

Fitness trackers and smartwatches have somewhat merged over the past 18 months. Having discovered that the niche for wearables is just way too tight, manufacturers started bonding features from the two platforms, ultimately ending with devices that function pretty similarly. Sure, dedicated fitness trackers have a rubber band, a more rugged look, a smaller screen, and possibly no touch functionality, while smartwatches will rock leather or nylon bands, have big screens, and look more high-tech. But at the end of the day, feature-wise, both categories will usually have …

Have you ever wondered how a different color is considered trendy every year? Pantone, a New Jersey-based company, has been responsible for ‘electing’ a ‘Color of the Year’ since the 2000s.

Blackberry Storm Review: First Full Screen Touch Phone From Blackberry

It may seem like the iPhone may have the full touch screen smartphone market cornered. There aren’t many phones to choose from in this family. It takes a very innovative company to release a rival full touch screen smartphone. Blackberry offers consumers such a rival. The RIM Blackberry Storm is one of the latest additions to the full touch screen smartphone line. It is the first full touch screen cell phone from Blackberry. Blackberry entered the race with a complete set of advantages and feature set it has brought along with from its impressive Blackberry smartphone line. With its impressive list of features and low price the RIM Blackberry Storm will make a great phone for anyone who is looking for an affordable replacement to the iPhone. But the Storm also does come with a list of minor problems that can hamper a person’s enjoyment of the phone.

The RIM Blackberry Storm is quite similar to the iPhone in its design and look. The notable differences are that the Storm is shorter and heavier than the iPhone. Also there are standard phone controls located under the display screen. The biggest achievement is the Storms utilization of SurePress technology. This allows the user to perform functions by actually clicking on the screen instead of just tapping it. Unfortunately clicking on the screen does take a while to get used to because honestly clicking on the screen feels awkward. Also anyone with big hands or fingers might have trouble typing messages because the keyboard that is displayed is quite small and the letters are crammed together. Those accustom to trackball navigator might miss it as it is absent on the RIM Blackberry Storm.

The RIM Blackberry Storm offers the same features found on all previous Blackberry phones. It continues offering its users an amazing operating system and even upgrades it from the previous installment. The user is able to use and open various Microsoft Office files such as Word, Excel and even Power Point. As with previous Blackberry phones the Storm is able to link with your company’s Blackberry Enterprise Server allowing you access to corporate emails and files. The phone can even act as a wireless modem for laptops. It is an amazing application which costs only $15 a month.

The phone feels as if it was rushed to be released just in time for the holidays because there are a lot of bugs and small glitches. The accelerometer needed more work. Switching the phone to and from landscape mode was fine but websites took a while to change screen position. The multimedia controls are also affected by this. When rotating the phone the controls sometimes appeared to be flashing and even disappear from the screen at one point. Aside from the accelerometer websites generally took a while to load and certain apps were sluggish upon launching.

As far as the phone performance the RIM Blackberry Storm did great. Callers can enjoy clear and crisp calls. The voices on the other end will sound very well. Also your voice will sound clear to your caller as well. The microphone is great at isolating and not picking up background noise.

The RIM Blackberry Storm could use more work. There have been promises of firmware upgrades which will fix many of the bugs found on this phone. While the updates to fix some of the problems they don’t address all of them. But for the price of the phone and amazing capabilities it is still a reasonable buy. Just be sure to get the firmware upgrade if you decide to purchase this phone.

Are you missing the mechanical home button on the Samsung Galaxy S8?

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are fresh new beasts, with lo-o-ong displays and super slim bezels. The design might be breathtaking, but it has its limitations. Among them, we have the lack of room for a physical home button, which has — for ages — been located on every Samsung phone’s chin, neighbored by capacitive “Recents” and “Back” buttons.

The new Sammy flagships have virtual navigation keys, like Google’s Pixels and LG’s phones. With that, we at least get the advantage of being able to (finally) arrange the “Back” and “Recent” placements to how we prefer them, which …

Results: do you use wireless charging?

So, wireless charging is pretty popular nowadays — almost all current major Android flagships have the feature, sans the occasional heavy hitter like the Google Pixel. It is becoming so prominent that even Apple’s iPhone 8 (or whatever that rumored premium edition of the iPhone ends up being called) is rumored to come with a wireless charging coil.

As you probably know, wireless charging requires you to lay your phone on a special pad for it to begin topping up. It’s slower, it warms up the phone noticeably, but it works without you fiddling with any wires, so it’s …

Samsung details all the Galaxy S8 features you don't have access to (unless you're in China)

China, as most of you may know, has a very different smartphone market from the one in most Western countries – the four big local smartphone manufacturers, Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi, have sort of carved their own niche in terms of design. But this applies even more so to their smartphones’ user interface, which often relies more on maximizing usable screen space rather than minimalism; or in other words, a Chinese UX is way busier than what most of us are used to.

Meanwhile, a company such as Samsung, which pretty much dominates the worldwide …
