So basically, it can be summarized that Android users are the more ‘mature’ market compared to iOS. This analogy is based on a recently conducted study by Xyologic, a company which specializes... in app discoveries and hunts. The topic of the study was the app preferences of both iPhone and Android users; the results of which lead to a conclusion that the ‘iPhone is for games, Android is for apps...

Indeed, it has been a great holiday season for many of us. New phones such as the Galaxy Nexus and Droid Razr have been wrapped in gift boxes, as well as new accessories. So many new things... are changing.

Starting January 15, even more new lifestyles will be set. However, it is not the “nice” kind of change we are accustomed to. Verizon, once again, will be squeezing out more...

After spending the whole day running constant LTE speed tests, today is a bit different. In places that normally have 4G coverage by Verizon, we are lucky to be getting any data connection at... all on our Galaxy Nexus. 3G is working fine for the most part in Silicon Valley around the Googleplex, but the same cannot be said in other parts of the country.

This is not the first time Veriz...

Droid-4

Looks like someone at Best Buy messed up! As you can tell from the picture above, Best Buy is advertising the Droid 4 on its Rewards Zone website, along with a flagship phone from the other... three major US carriers. While Verizon put ice on the Droid 4 release date already, looks like someone at Verizon forgot to tell the folks at Best Buy. So the purchase of a Droid 4 won’t be ear...

verizon-lte-down

Many other Android websites including Droid-Life and Phandroid have reported that for the third time this month, Verizon is having a network outage. According to Twitter, the outage seems to... be pretty sporadic with some in NYC having no issues while others are. Phoenix, Minneapolis, Detroit, Chicago, Houston, San Francisco and Portland are also being reported as down.

While writing...

Plan B

Now that you can track your phone’s location online, and even track other people’s locations, it is almost impossible to lose your phone given that you have an application that tracks... your device’s locations. But what happens when you don’t have one of those programs installed? Now, thanks to Lookout Labs, you can turn to Plan B. More specifically, if you lost your phone and...

4G LTE

After a few years of development, tons of commercials, and a lot of patient waiting, 4G LTE is finally here, for Verizon customers at least. And although not everyone is seeing the “up to 10x... faster speeds”, I assure you LTE has landed.

During my trip to New York City over the weekend, I was sure that my Galaxy Nexus would be picking up LTE speeds. Using Ookla’s Speedte...

Looks like Samsung really doesn’t know what they are going to do with your original Galaxy S phone or your original Galaxy Tab 7-inch. Yesterday, we told you they were re-evaluating getting... ICS on those devices, and now today, we’ve learned that Samsung will update these devices with a “value pack”.

So what exactly is a value pack? From what we understand it will brin...

Cleaner

Google recently took more than 50 apps out of the Android Market. They did this because the apps were found to contain the Android malware DroidDream. As you could have guessed, malware is not... good for your device. Just like a virus on your computer, malware is very dangerous and can do crazy things to your brand spanking new Android device. However, if you have Lookout Mobile Security or an...

samsung-galaxy-S3-AA

We have seen so many different renders of the Galaxy S3, and while most of them were fakes, we have also heard many rumors about the Galaxy S3’s specs. But here is something we haven’t... heard yet, Samsung might be incorporating 3D (glassless) functionality into the Galaxy S3 line of Android phones. This would complete Samsung’s ecosystem, along with their 3D televisions which are on...
