All Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and S8 models now come with free Gear IconX wireless earphones

Samsung will soon announce a Galaxy S9 and a Galaxy S9+, but that doesn’t mean the company wants customers to stop purchasing its current smartphones.

The perfect pair of true wireless headphones

Since I’ve been back with PhoneArena, I’ve been focusing the majority of my time and efforts into covering wireless Bluetooth headphones. Not just your standard Bluetooth headphones and headsets, but rather, the budding “true wireless” segment that has been seeing tremendous growth over the course of the last few years – much more than the traditional stuff we’re accustomed to seeing. That’s mainly due to how they’re designed to be independent, no longer having the left and right channels tethered with some sort of connection or bridge.

When we started seeing the first batch of …

Jabra Elite 65t wireless earphones Review

Nearly a year ago, we reviewed the Jabra Elite Sport, the longtime wireless audio maker’s first venture into the true wireless space. You could say that they were ambitious with their approach, considering the earbuds attempted to appeal to both music and fitness enthusiasts. Unfortunately, it didn’t help either that the Elite Sport were slapped with a $250 price tag, making them one of the more expensive mainstream options at the time.

During CES 2018 early last month, Jabra introduced two new truly wireless headphones – the Jabra Elite 65t and the Elite Active …

Deal: Save $80 on Apple's Beats Solo3 wireless headphones at Amazon and Best Buy

Apple’s Beats Solo3 wireless headphones have been on sale quite a few times in the last year or so, but if you missed those opportunities to buy a pair, you get another one right now.

Both Amazon and Best Buy have the Beats Solo3 on sale for just $220, so you’ll be saving $80 for the MSRP. However, not all color variants have had their prices discounted by $80, but the white and black models are surely among the cheapest.

For example, the Matte Gold Beats Solo3 are on sale for $260, which means you’ll only be saving $40. The same goes for the Matte Silver and Asphalt Gray variants. …

Bragi Dash Pro wireless earphones Review


Helping to establish this newfound market for truly wireless headphones, Munich-based company Bragi was one of the pioneers to enter it back in late 2015 with its crowdfunded set, simply named “The Dash.” Since then, we’ve seen several companies inundate the space with their own offerings and moving the segment to all sorts of directions. Some of these shifts were good, some bad, but the evolution has been evident since the first batch of wireless headphones came out. Two years later, we’re testing out Bragi’s latest product, the Dash Pro, which is an ambitious effort to deliver the most intelligent …

Do you use wireless charging on a regular basis? (results)

We asked you last week how often do you actually charge your handset wirelessly, given that this is an increasingly common option that is now available on iPhones and Androids alike, but is slower compared to conventional cable charging, and requires an extra accessory. A lot of phone makers moved to glass bodies to facilitate wireless charging, and we wanted to gauge whether this has been worth all the cracked rears. 
It turns out that more than half of our 2433 respondents don’t care at all about it, whether because they don’t have it on their phones, …
