Without further ado, here are the best headphone deals we found this month. We've made a number of favorable remarks about Sennheiser's Momentum In-Ears in the past. We've called them "among the best deals in the headphones market as it stands today" and said that they "raise the bar for sound performance" in the budget headphone genre. All of that holds true. If you're looking for a pair of wired in-ears, these are your guys. Specs-wise the Momentum In-Ears weigh about .3 lbs and have a 4.2-foot cable. The frequency response is about 15 to 22,000Hz, which means it can handle highs, mids and lows with relative ease. It has some problems with compatibility, however, so just make sure you check to make sure it'll work with your handset before you push the 'buy now' button. Read the review: Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear Why should you pick the Optoma NuForce BE Sport3 instead of the Momentum In-Ear, because it's one of the cheapest (and best-sounding) in-ear headphones we've ever found.

Trumps an unorthodox sort with, by most accounts, a fairly tenuous grasp on modern technologies. Until relatively recently, there was a seemingly open question regarding whether the soon-to-be sworn in leader of the free world ever actually used a computer. But the guy loves his smartphone.

The Removal of the Home Keycontroversial, but very likely. Higher Display Resolutions (Hopefully across the board) A New Pro Model iPhoneThis will be the true flagship Big Improvements To Standard iPhone 8 Model: 1080p Display, Improved Imaging. Bigger Battery Life: iPhone 8 Pro will likely feature the biggest battery ever placed inside an iPhone We've heard a lot of talk in the last six months or so about Apple's iPhone 8 being an "all glass" or clear ceramic handset, fashioned from curved, transparent bodywork, possibly in a similar shape to the iPhone 4S; reports have differed, however, on whether or not it will feature a metal supportive frame. Logic says probably yes, and revered sage of Apple-based predictions, Ming-chi Kuo (of KGI Securities) has previously suggested that there will indeed be a metal frame for the iPhone 8, made from stainless steel, no less.

Prisma will transform your photos into works of art, and now Artisto has arrived to do the same for videos. Simply select any clip that's saved to your phone (or shoot a new one straight from the app), and then choose from a number of filters, some of which are inspired by actual art styles, such as art nouveau, and the app will quickly apply the filter to your footage. Depending on the clip and style you choose the result can range from beautiful to an incomprehensible mess, but it's fun to play with and, if used with care, can lead to great-looking videos. Once you've applied a filter you can share your creation straight to Instagram, Facebook, or any other compatible app on your phone, or just save it to your handset. If youre anything like us youd probably sooner forget those embarrassing outfits you were wearing in all your old printed photos.

In the UK, things are still looking okay for the original handset, with the potential scenario that 2G actually outlives 3G when things are reviewed. But while your original iPhone should probably see out its tenth birthday, it’s probably time to consider that upgrade. iPhones have come quite a long way in the last decade – and you can copy/paste right out of the box!

The apps recently become popular throughout the rest of the world and has been downloaded more than a billion times. And, like most other smartphone apps, it requests access to certain parts of a users phone. But, unlike most other apps, Meitu arguably takes it too far on Android phones by requiring access not just the phones camera and storage (which is only natural), but also to your phone number and location (both network-based and GPS) just to start up. But thats not all. It also asks to read, modify and delete the contents of an Android phones USB storage, view network connections, change display and audio settings, reorder running apps, control vibrations and prevent the device from going into sleep mode. The iOS version of the app runs a check to see if a handset is jailbroken or not. Security researchers have delved into the apps code and found that it even collects phone IMEI numbers something which could allow users habits to be tracked across different apps.

Users of Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge handsets can rejoice, knowing their phones will soon get an upgrade to Android Nougat (if they havent already), but when will Huawei handset owners get a taste of that chewy Nougat goodness? Huawei launched its own Emotion UI 5.0 (based on Android Nougat), with the flagship Mate 9 , then saw it rolled out to P9 , P9 Plus and Mate 8 since. But the Chinese tech giant (and others in the same market) has received slack in the past for not keeping its recent phone models updated regularly. Having learnt the importance of keeping their customers happy, Huawei has gone ahead and planned out a roadmap for the rollout of Nougat to its latest handsets, which was leaked via Chinese social media site Weibo along with the potential dates of when the handsets will receive the update. Starting with the Nova , which is expected to receive the update in March, Huawei will continue its rollout to the G9 Plus and Honor Note 8 the following month, ending with the Honor 6X and M3 tablet by May.

It has been downloaded more than 50 million times. [JOOX app downloads and top 3 music apps in key Asian markets./ Source: McKinsey] In fact, overseas players such as Apple and Spotify are in an unfavorable situation in the Asian market. According to McKinsey analysis, Asian market has relatively high content costs and low advertising prices. Besides, consumers in Asia are less likely to be willing to pay for subscriptions. Prevalence of software piracy is also a factor pushing suppliers to lower subscription fees. As a result, Tencent's music streaming business is not yet profitable. Instead, it is raising revenues by selling ads to global brands like Adidas, Dior, Chanel, and handset makers like Samsung Electronics and Oppo. Another beneficial factor for Tencent is that most of its users are young people. It's because mobile operators are accelerating investment in large-scale infrastructure as the number of smartphone users is rising rapidly.

Android One is an ambitious smartphone initiative launched by Google in 2014 . To date, it's been limited to a handful of countries - mostly in Asia - and it remains at best unclear if it's actually been successful. The idea was nice enough: Inexpensive Android phones built by typical handset-makers, but with Google lending a helping hand on the messy business of software updates. Of course, the carrot also came with a stick. Read More Does Android One have any chance at success in the United States? was written by the awesome team at Android Police .

Oh, and this phone does have a notification LED, something that is all too often left out by the competition. At 76 x 152 x 13mm, the HT20 fits nicely into an average persons hand, and while it weighs well above 200g, it compares favourably with others. Inside the device is a Mediatek MTK6737 system-on-a-chip, a quad-core model clocked at 1.3GHz with 2GB RAM and 16GB on-board storage the latter can be augmented via the microSD slot. The SoC is a 64-bit model using ARMs Cortex-A53 cores and a Mali-T720MP2 GPU. Flip the handset over and you will find a fingerprint reader were not sure about the use of such a feature on a rugged smartphone, especially as it adds another point of failure and is obviously inconvenient if you wear gloves. But it is a fast sensor (200 milliseconds, says Homtom) and is something unique amongst rugged smartphones.

Cutting out those bad habits that hold you back from progress is a positive move we can understand AT&T. You do what you have to do. Now that iPhones are capable of supporting the significantly faster 4G network, were not exactly lamenting our inability to use the original handset anymore.

When Google launched its Android One program in 2014 it was designed for one main reason: to create a system of standards for phones in developing countries. Targeting emerging markets in Pakistan, India, the Philippines, Indonesia, and others, the program dictated minimum hardware standards and limited software tweaks to insure people everywhere had access to low-cost phones that still provided regular security updates and the latest Android features. Now it looks like the program is on its way to the U.S. According to a report in The Information , Google is looking to launch its first Android One phone in the States “before the middle of the year,” and is eyeing LG as a potential manufacturer. Yesterday, VentureBeat divulged that Google would be partnering with LG on the release of its first Android Wear watch, but The Information’s report doesnt say whether the two companies would be collaborating on the development of the Android One handset.
