Video Review: HTC 10 - The Road Back

You've read our HTC 10 review, and now we're back with the video version with our ever-lovable video host Mark Burstiner. Mark takes a look at what makes the 10 tick, and if the 10 ticks the boxes it needs to in the increasingly cutthroat flagship smartphone game. HTC's latest device has been almost uniformly praised as the best smartphone they've released since the progenitor of the One series, the One M7, while still inheriting that vital HTC design DNA that made the original One such a showstopper. But is HTC's best good enough in 2016? That's a tougher question.

WhatsApp Is Working On Video Calls, NFC Tags And Group Invites, Voicemail, And Zip File Sharing

WhatsApp has been steadily adding more and more features over the past year and that is not slowing down. In the last few months, we've run across dozens of tips of upcoming WhatsApp options, some that are already live, others that are starting to materialize, and several that are still tagged with a big question mark. We're compiling here a few of the latter and most interesting rumors and tips, but do take them with a grain of salt. Some of them might really happen, others could be scrapped off.

Video calling

Rumors of WhatsApp adding video call support go as far back as last December, but the news has been intensifying over the past few days with screenshots of the feature surfacing for beta iOS users.

Google Updates Street View With Enhanced Photo Sphere Features And Support For KitKat Devices

Update Wednesday has been and gone, but we'll let it pass, as an app that doesn't get all that much attention has been updated! v2.12 of Google Street View is rolling out now, with some new Photo Sphere features and other improvements.

Photo Spheres are now automatically grouped, and connections can be created between them. Your own photo spheres can be multiple selected by long tapping, which is helpful, and the app works in landscape now. Curiously, Google has also added support for KitKat, but when you look at the latest distribution numbers and see that almost a third of Android users still use 4.4, it starts to make more sense.

Google Is Still Sending Waves Of I/O Invites To Some Lucky Applicants

Google I/O is only a couple of weeks away and by now, if you haven't received an I/O lottery ticket, which started going out in mid March, you have probably given up on attending the conference. But hold your horses. It seems that Google still has a few open slots, probably after giving others who signed up the chance to buy a ticket and not hearing back from them. Their "no" could be your "yes."

Several users have reported to us getting an email from Google, giving them the chance to buy an I/O ticket between today and Monday May 9.

[Leak] Samsung Galaxy S7 Active For AT&T Poses In Front Of The Camera In Vietnam

Over a month ago, someone at Samsung slipped up and let out the name of a Galaxy S7 Active as a compatible device when updating the Samsung Level app's description on the Play Store (it's now gone). We knew the device was coming, and rumors had pegged it as model number SM-G891A with very similar specs to the regular S7 but a military-grade protection (MIL-STD-810G) on top of its IP68 water and dust resistance.

Today sheds more light on this Galaxy S7 Active, which will follow the footsteps of its Active predecessors and get released on AT&T in the US. The device has been caught on camera in Vietnam despite trying to sneak by with its camo back ("I still see you!" as my fiancé loves to joke).

[Deal Alert] eBay Offers The Galaxy S7 Duos (Dual SIM) For $529.99, $170 Off Retail

Yesterday I mentioned that flagship phones tend to drop in street price surprisingly quickly. Thank you, eBay sellers, for proving my point. Today the Galaxy S7 Duos, the dual-SIM version of Samsung's yearly upgrade, is just $529.99 on eBay for a new (not used or refurbished) phone. The prices for the Duos model aren't very consistent in dollars, but this unlocked GSM phone is almost $170 off the retail price of the single-SIM model at AT&T.

Then it introduced a way to follow friends and interesting strangers in order to keep up with what they're reading and read their comments.
