Samsung Internet Is A Web Browser For Gear VR Hitting The Oculus Store Tomorrow, December 2nd

The Gear VR takes your smartphone's screen and holds it much closer to your eyes than you would ever do yourself. Then with the proper use of sensors, it makes you feel like you're someplace else.

But Samsung doesn't want you to think its weird-looking goggles are a one-trick pony. It has developed a web browser that may not be quite as exciting as riding a helicopter over the Hawaiian islands but still manages to be significantly more immersive than your typical web surfing experience.

The Moto 360 Sport Will Launch In The UK And France December 18th, US On January 7th

The Moto 360, old or new, is a nice watch for people who like nice watches. But Motorola's little Android Wear device isn't made for the more active or outdoorsy among us. It's large, and rubbing one against a rock while climbing might just ruin your day. Don't trip while running, because those tears won't be over your scraped knee.

Knowing this, Motorola has developed the Moto Sport. It's a follow-up model that's surrounded by a layer of silicone that stands up to sweat and other moisture. This is also the company's only model that comes with built-in GPS.

[You Crazy Kids!] OnePlus, Those Rapscallions, Are Making An iPhone 6 Case, Because That's, Like, SO Them

Guys, did you know OnePlus is totally making an iPhone 6 case? Whaaaat. Like, that's just crazy or whatever, they'd have to be insane to make a case for a competitor's device! There's no way any phone company would ever do that, because that's, like, completely the opposite of what you're supposed to do. Nobody's ever done it, so you know it probably shouldn't be done - unless they're all just too scared. Well, OnePlus just did it, haters.

Chrome Data Saver Now Shaves Off Up To 70% Data By Loading Images On Demand On Slow Connections

Chrome introduced its data saving feature many versions of the app ago, but if you've kept it enabled on your device(s), you must have noticed that it's not exactly that efficient. It saves somewhere between 10 and 20% of your data, but that's not going to make a big difference if you're on a very slow network or a very limited plan. If you're suffering from the former, you'll be happy to know that Data Saver is going to get better.

The updated data saver mode can save up to 70% of your bandwidth by not loading a webpage's images when you're on a slow connection.

LG Starts Rolling Out The Good Looking All-Metal Midrange LG Zero To Asia, Europe, And Latin America

Smartphones are inspirational. People see me carrying an LG G4 and want a cheaper almost just as good alternative from the brand. But up until now, LG's midrange has been lacking both in terms of specs and looks. That's why it's interesting to hear about the global rollout of a new premium'ish offering from the company that is good enough for a grand majority of users. Think of this LG Zero as the answer to Samsung's Galaxy Alpha series, but in only one configuration so far.

LG-Zero

If the design looks eerily familiar to those of you who have had smartphones for more than 5 years, it's because the LG Zero resembles a Nokia N8 with a bit of LG thrown in.

ASUS ZenFone Selfie And ZenFone 2 Laser International Edition Review: Great Values As Long As You Can Handle ZenUI

ASUS has been getting more invested into the smartphone market, both in the US—where we recently talked about the ZenFone 2 Laser and ZenFone 2—and in their closer-to-home markets in the Eastern Hemisphere. This review will focus on two models that will not make it to the US, but should be of interest to those in Taiwan, China, Japan, Korea, and elsewhere. The main focus will be on the ZenFone Selfie, which is much like the familiar ZenFone 2 and ZenFone 2 Laser but with a high-quality front-facing camera sensor. I will also discuss the ZE550KL model of the ZenFone 2 Laser, which is available in some non-US markets.
