30 of the best watchfaces for Samsung Gear Sport, Gear S3, Gear S2

Samsung’s Gear S series turned out to be quite successful despite running on Sammy’s home-brewed Tizen OS and not kicking off Google’s Android Wear. Perhaps surprisingly, Google’s own wearable OS doesn’t seem to be enjoying as much popularity as Samsung’s is.

So, naturally, you can expect to find a lot of 3rd party apps for the Gear S2, Gear S3, and Gear Sport in the Galaxy Apps store. As well as tons and tons of watch faces. Some good, some bad… But you know, it’s mostly in the eye of the beholder.

Still, it’s a daunting list to sift through. So, we thought we’d give you a list …


Honor 7X confirmed to receive Android Oreo update in the US on April 30

The Honor 7X is one of those decent mid-range smartphones that have been priced pretty low to be more appealing to consumers. Still, it took the Chinese handset maker many months to introduce the Honor 7X in the United States, but when it did, it promised to offer an Oreo update to go with it.

Previous reports pointed Q2 as the timeframe Honor is targeting for the release of Android 8.0 Oreo for Honor 7X. Today, the company confirmed that the Honor 7X will receive the major Android OS update in the United States beginning April 30.

The update includes EMUI 8.0 and possibly the …

Motorola confirms 70 million lifetime Moto G sales, sets 30 million goal for Moto G6

At the company’s current pace of sales, the present total works out at an average of 14 million Moto G units per year. But considering the gradual rise in popularity of …

Fortnite scores $25 million take in first 30 days; guided missle is removed

The hottest mobile game on the planet right now is Fortnite. How hot is this zombie-filled game of survival in a post-apocalyptic world? During a recent rain delay during a Cleveland Indians’ home game, the giant Jumbotron at Progressive Field entertained the crowd by showing a game of Fortnite in progress. But a better way to measure the temperature of Fortnite is to look at the App Store where the free app (with in-app purchases available, of course) has raked in $25 million during its first 30 days. That comes from app researcher Sensor Tower.

That performance continues. During the first …

Samsung Galaxy S9 first day pre-orders down 30% compared to Galaxy S8

Bad news for Samsung, as pre-orders for its new Galaxy S9 series are just 70% of the predecessor, a South Korean publication reports. The numbers from the first day indicated that pre-orders of the Galaxy S9 in South Korea are down 30% compared to the previous model.

T-Mobile joins the 5G fray, announces super-fast network in 30 cities by the end of 2018

The Un-carrier has just announced plans to build 5G in 30 cities by the end of the year. T-Mobile customers in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and Las Vegas will be among the first to experience super-fast speeds when the first 5G smartphones will be launched early next year.

T-Mobile has already started to deploy 5G-ready equipment and enable 5G low-band …
