Sprint Galaxy Note 3 Owners Complain of Garbling, Morphing, Popping, And Just All Around Terrible Audio Quality In Calls

While the Galaxy Note 3 is getting mostly positive reviews, some Sprint customers are giving it a million thumbs down for its usefulness as an actual phone. The Sprint forums (among other places) have been overflowing with complaints of poor audio quality on calls. Now Sprint has at least acknowledged there is something to investigate.

HTC Officially Unveils The One Max: 5.9 Inches, MicroSD Expansion, Rear Fingerprint Scanner, Rollout Starting In October

It's been leaked more than a few times, but early this morning HTC finally took the rather large wraps off the One max. The new phone is essentially a supersized version of the HTC One stretched out to a massive 5.9 inches. HTC hasn't been sitting on its hands for the last few months: the One max (little "m") also includes an oh-so-trendy fingerprint scanner beneath the camera.

From a hardware perspective, the One max and the older One have quite a lot in common indeed.

The Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Watch officially launch today

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 9 earlier this month and promptly began taking pre-orders. Some of those phones already shipped, but today is the official street date for the Note 9. You can stroll into your local carrier store or purveyor of electronic ephemera and walk out with a Galaxy Note 9. Well, it'll be hard to walk out and carry the phone after giving up and arm and leg to get it. You can, however, adorn your one remaining wrist with the Galaxy Watch, which is also launching today.

Samsung Lists Which US Galaxy Smartphones And Tablets Will Get Updated To KitKat

Samsung has been very cautious in rolling out its KitKat update thus far, with even most Galaxy S4 owners still waiting around on Jelly Bean.

  • Galaxy Note 3
  • Galaxy Note II
  • Galaxy S4
  • Galaxy S4 mini
  • Galaxy S4 Active
  • Galaxy S4 zoom
  • Galaxy S III
  • Galaxy S III mini
  • Galaxy Mega
  • Galaxy Light
  • Galaxy Note 8.0
  • Galaxy Tab 3
  • Galaxy Note 10.1
  • Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition

The company expresses that updates will start today and continue on throughout the coming months, not proving any information on which devices will get priority.

Hands-On With The Oppo N1

Hands-On With The Oppo N1

I'm here in Beijing for Oppo's launch event for the new N1 smartphone, and last night I had a chance to spend some time with the up-and-coming Chinese OEM's super-sized flagship, as well as learn a bit more about it from a couple of Oppo's engineers and PR team.

As far as basic impressions, the N1 does feel like quite a premium phone. It has a similar painted plastic outer shell to the Find 5, while the internal structure of the phone is actually supported by an anodized aluminum frame. This does mean, like the Find 5, the N1 is rather hefty, tipping the scales at around 213g, making it over 40g heavier than the Galaxy Note 3, which does have a slightly smaller 5.7" display.

Nike Says Lack Of Bluetooth LE Is Why There's No Android FuelBand App, Ignores All The Phones With Bluetooth LE

Ever since Nike introduced its FuelBand wearable fitness tracker last year, there's been a rather loud and unsatisfied cry from users of the biggest mobile operating system on the planet: "Where the hell is the Android version?" Even while competitors like Fitbit Jawbone's UP have embraced Android, Nike FuelBand has remained an iOS exclusive, and Nike has made a point of explicitly stating that there's no Android version of the app in development. A new interview from Pocket-lint sheds some light on why.

Nike's VP of Digital Sport, Stefan Olander, blames the relative scarcity of Bluetooth Low-Energy (sometimes called BLE or Bluetooth Smart), a feature in the Bluetooth 4.0 spec, for the company's lack of Android support.

According to SlickDeals, the free redemption codes are available to owners of the Galaxy Tab S, Galaxy Note Pro, Galaxy Tab Pro, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S5, and Galaxy S4. One Android Police writer managed to redeem both movies on a Galaxy Note 4, so it might be worth a try on other Samsung phones too.
