Samsung’s Gear VR is one of the cheaper ways to get into good VR, but it’s soundly surpassed by the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. But Samsung is determined to stay in the game, which is why it’s developing at least one standalone VR devices.
Samsung has released a new, pinker version of the flagship Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. But don’t call them Rose Gold—that’s Apple’s color! Instead, they are something totally different called “Pink Gold.”
HTC is thirsty for your dollars. To that end they’ve announced a new phone, the HTC 10, and despite looking like a rip off of all the other phones out there, it actually has a new idea packed into its glass and shiny metal chassis.
Your RAM’s about to get an upgrade. Samsung has announced the world’s first 10-nanometer 8-gigabit DRAM chips, and it promises that they’ll be 30 percent faster and 20 percent more efficient than what went before.
“What’s the best smartphone?” It’s a question I hear at least once or twice a month.
Apple is the innovator and Microsoft is the imitator. That’s long been the prevailing narrative, but with the Surface and the Surface Book, things changed.

The memory is two times faster than the previous generation of Universal Flash Storage (UFS) memory, meaning that phones will not only have greater storage capacities, but also…
You’ve probably seen the instantly classic photo of Mark Zuckerberg cheerfully strutting past a crowd blinded by VR headsets at Mobile World Congress during Samsung’s press conference.
