Smartphones are inching closer and closer to becoming pure slabs of glass. Just look at Samsung's Galaxy S8 and its "infinity display" which covers 83% of the front or the LG G6's "full vision" display and its 80% screen-to-body ratio. As futuristic as those phones look, they're not quite fully bezel-less. They still have a slim "forehead" and "chin" to house essential features like an earpiece, iris scanner, and selfie camera. A new report from Korea's ETnews , however, suggests phones with screens that cover almost 100% of the front could be on their way very soon.

The Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45 is the premium watch brands latest attempt to create a fashionable wristwatch that can also provide the same functionality youd get on other Android Wear products. This is an expensive but great looking alternative to the likes of the LG Watch Style and Huawei Watch 2 , offering the same Android Wear 2.0 functionality in an arguably more attractive package. Smartwatches arent always designed with a fashion focus, but the Tag Heuer has exactly that. But is the premium design and fashion brand enough to pull you in and get you to spend quite a bit more than you would on the other Android Wear products on the market? Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45 price and release date More expensive than most other Android Wear watches Starts at $1,550 (1,200, AU$2,300) but can be much more experience Dont expect the Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45 to be cheap; this is one of the most expensive smartwatches on the market.

With the code BLACKNOV125 you could get 125 off the up-front cost of an iPhone 7 - and no, the contract wasnt more expensive to compensate. 130 off the PS4 The PlayStation 4 is a brilliant console, and last Black Friday it was a brilliant bargain too: there was 130 off the 1TB model and bundles costing as little as 189. Very chopped 34% off the price of some of its PS4 bundles and Amazon cut 20%. 40 off the iPad Air There were lots of iPad bargains on Black Friday 2016 including 40 off the iPad Air, 30 off iPad Pros and up to 50 off iPad Minis. Apple wasnt offering those discounts, but it did bundle gift cards with various products. 900 off an LG OLED TV Hows this for a discount: Black Friday meant a massive 900 off the LG OLED55B6V TV, bringing its price down to a much less frightening 1,899.

Whatever the phone ends up being called, it looks like being a flagship worth waiting for - the 5.5-inch device is going to come with touch-sensitive, squeezable edges that can be used to scroll and select without any fingers obscuring the screen. The phone is also up against some stiff competition this year, with the LG G6 , Samsung Galaxy S8 , and S8 Plus already unveiled, and more phones from Google and Apple on the way in a few short months. We'll bring you news of what HTC is offering from the launch event next month. HTC Vive is promoting three eco-minded VR projects this Earth Day

Samsungs claims about picture qualitys demise as a reason for choosing a TV were followed by an announcement that its Frame TVs, unveiled at the CES in January as prototypes, will be on sale very soon. The design-led QLED TVs, which have been created to look like works of art when switched-off, are a clear attempt to rival LGs Signature Series W7 OLED TVs. Zoller announced that the Frame TVs will sell in Europe by the end of May, and then roll-out across the globe. They will be available in both 55-inch and 65-inch sizes, with an RRP of 2,200 ($2,350, 1,840, AUS$3,125). The Frame TVs will go on sale in Europe by the end of May Other details, such as resolution, were not shared, though Zoller did announce the Frame TVs would be easy to hang on a wall and have only one cable. They're a reaction to Samsungs research that found that 30% of Europeans hang a TV on a wall, but 70% would like to.

Remember all the talk about modular smart phones? They sounded amazing! instead of upgrading your phone you would just upgrade the parts a bit like a computer but more simplistic. Well it seems modular phones are dead (video, embedded below) even after a lot of major phone manufacturers were jumping on the bandwagon. Even Google got on-board with Google Ara which was subsequently cancelled. LG released the G5 but it didn't fare too well. The Moto Z from Motorola seemed to suffer from the same lack of interest. The buzz was there when the concept of these modular phones was announced, and people were genuinely exited about the possibilities. What went wrong? For a start people expect their phones to have everything on board already, whether it be cameras, GPS, WiFi, high-capacity batteries or high-resolution screens. Consumers expect these things to come as standard.

Why? Because the Samsung Galaxy S8 is the device the S8 Edge would have been. Samsung’s new flagship is a phone with curved edges; and there’s no alternative. The result is the best-looking phone on the market. Samsung has created an 18.5:9Infinity Display” that looks like no device you’ve ever seen before – well, none since the LG G6 , anyway. The front of the phone is 100% glass, with the slimmest of bezels nestled above and below, resulting in an impressively high screen to body ratio of 84% (the Samsung Galaxy S7’s screen-to-body ratio was 72%). Image 1 of 7 This is a phone that feels great in your hand. It’s slim, smooth and light. However, it's also slightly over-engineered. It’s a tall phone, which causes some problems during use. Hold the phone in your hand as if you want to unlock it using the rear fingerprint sensor and you’ll struggle to reach the home button without readjusting your grip.

Wilfred Collins 2 min 19 sec ago Mobile phones These days it can feel like there are too many great smartphones on the market: the iPhone 7, LG G6, Google Pixel and so on. British consumers have ample choice, and with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S8, your options have widened even further. To figure out exactly what smartphone is right for you, we wanted to look at how the new Galaxy S8 stacks up against the competition. This time, it’s Samsung versus the Google Pixel. Let’s look at the facts and break down their specs, price and design in detail. Google Pixel vs. Galaxy S8: Design Samsung has been chasing Apple’s crown in the design game for a while, and with the Galaxy S8, we think it has overhauled Apple. Samsung has gone for an edge-to-edge design, with an unusual 18:9 aspect ratio. By removing the border around the phone and ditching the home button, Samsung has created what is certainly one of the most striking designs currently on the market.

Enlarge / Huawei's premium phablet, when operational. (credit: Ron Amadeo/Ars Technica) Seems like makers of flagship Android devices can't get it right these days. We recently reported on an ever-expanding class-action lawsuit targeting LG's flagships: the G4, G5, V10, V20, and Nexus 5X. Those phones, according to the suit and thousands of online complaints by users, have a legendary bootloop issue caused by shoddy construction that bricks the phones or slows them to a crawl. Now the Nexus 6P phablet, unveiled in September 2015 for pre-order, is also being accused in a class-action lawsuit of having a "Bootloop Defect." According to the suit, the Nexus 6P devices "are defective because they are prone to enter an endless bootloop cycle which renders them unresponsive and unusable." What's more, the suit also alleges a "Battery Drain Defect," which has also been the subject of repeated online criticism by unhappy Nexus 6P consumers.
