Unlike the Apple Pencil, ArsTechnica says that the S3's wireless S Pen accessory can connect to the device without touching the screen. Using the "translate" feature, buyers can hover the S Pen over a word and the S3 will "show you the equivalent in another language". While the Snapdragon 820 processor outperforms the previous model in almost every area, the website says that Tab S3 is "no match" for either the iPad Pro 9.7ins or 12.9ins, both of which are now over a year old. The Verge gives the Galaxy Tab S3 a score of 7.5 out of ten, saying that it sits in an "awkward position" between the iPad Pro and a Google Chromebook. It's a good tablet, but the website says that the iPad Pro is better thanks to its "app ecosystem". Multitasking also feels "incomplete", with many apps not fully supporting background refreshing or split-screen features.

Multi-window was one of the biggest and most useful additions to Android 7.0 Nougat. It made its debut on Android with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 all the way back in 2012, but it took a full four years to make its way into stock Android. It's since become a staple for many people; the convenience of watching a YouTube video while simultaneously scrolling through a Twitter or Facebook feed just can't be beat.

Welcome to your new Hangout. Google continues to shake up its messaging tools with the upcoming removal of a popular feature from Hangouts. According to an email sent to GSuite administrators and subsequently posted to Reddit, Google will remove the SMS messaging feature from Hangouts on May 22. Anyone using Hangouts as both a Google messaging app and their primary text messaging app won't be able to send SMS texts after that date. Hangouts users will be notified of this change via an in-app message starting March 27. You'll be prompted to select a new default messaging app from your list of downloaded apps. If you don't have anything other than Hangouts, you'll be directed to the Google Play Store to download another messaging app. All of your existing SMS messages will not be affected and they will be available in your new default messaging app.

In late June of last year, Amazon introduced its Prime Exclusive program , which offered unlocked phones to Prime members at a discount in exchange for a few Amazon apps and ads on them. It was a rather intriguing concept, and it's proven to be a success. David even used a BLU R1 HD in $60 Prime Exclusive guise for a month to see how a smartphone that cheap would fare.

Using The Misfit App In keeping with Misfit trackers themselves, the app is clean and simple. The dashboard contains your daily targets for activity and sleep, and you can swipe back for previous days, or scroll down to see more detail on that day’s activities. You can also see how much running, walking or swimming you need to do to hit your daily goal at a glance. You don't get much detail on any activities tracked, just activity type, distance, calories burned, steps (if relevant) and Misfit Points. The Misfit app does link with several other popular fitness apps, including MyFitnessPal, Apple Health and Runkeeper, but some big hitters are missed out – notably Strava and Nike+ Run Club. Using The Misfit Phase As A Smartwatch The Phase offers some very basic smartwatch-style notifications. It will buzz in response to a call, text and even some apps, including WhatsApp.
