Android 9 Pie-based Samsung Experience 10 leaks out; big UI changes revealed

Samsung Galaxy S9+Despite being the number one smartphone manufacturer, Samsung has historically been one of the slowest brands when it comes to software updates. But thanks to a new leak, it has been revealed that the company is already deep into the process of preparing its next update, Samsung Experience 10. Before getting too excited, it’s worth noting that the build in question, which is intended for the Galaxy S9+, is still an early development one based on Android 9 Pie, so there are unsurprisingly some bugs and inconsistencies. However, the screenshots of the software version do provide a pretty...

Judge rules FCC must produce data about suspicious comments received during net neutrality debate

A U.S. District judge ruled last week that the FCC must turn over records to a journalist who would use the data to identify those who uploaded bulk comments to the FCC in reference to net neutrality. A number of these uploads were allegedly submitted in other people's names without their permission. Net neutrality is the Obama-era rules that force ISPs and wireless providers to treat all content streams the same. It prevents them from getting paid to stream content over "fast lanes" and also blocks them from throttling or blocking content that they disagree with.Last year, the Trump-era FCC...

Presidential Alert text message to test WEA is now delayed until next month

Remember the initial test of the Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) system we told you to be prepared for on September 20th? The text, prefaced by a ear-piercing loud tone similar to the one used on Amber Alerts, is called a 'Presidential Alert' and cellphone users cannot opt-out of receiving it. The texts are supposed to be used to convey warnings related to the weather, missing children, and other emergencies.The test of the WEA system and the 'Presidential Alert' has been pushed back to Wednesday October 3rd. One reason for the delay is that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which...

Amazon kicks off Sony Xperia XZ3 pre-orders in the US, throwing in free Xperia Ear Duo headset

Sony’s latest flagship smartphone may not be 5G-ready (duh), also capping off at a modest (by ultra-high-end standards) 4GB RAM in the US and Europe, with its battery life proving a bitter disappointment in our in-depth testing.But even though we expected the Xperia XZ3 to only kick off pre-orders stateside on September 24 ahead of an actual October 17 commercial rollout, you can already reserve an early copy of the 6-inch OLED powerhouse over on Amazon, which is pretty nice.Better yet, the e-commerce giant lists September 24 as the handset’s release date now. And best of all, if you hurry,...

Razer Phone 2's specs might disappoint

Next month, on October 10, Razer will announce a brand new smartphone - its second ever. Seemingly called Razer Phone 2, the upcoming handset might not be much of an upgrade over the company's current smartphone (pictured above).Recently, based on information revealed by a benchmark listing, we assumed that the Razer Phone 2 would be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor (also found inside many of today's high-end Android handsets). However, from this point of view, the new Razer smartphone might disappoint us by ultimately packing a Snapdragon 835 processor - the same that's powering the original Razer Phone from...

HomePod fails to gain traction; just 2% of Apple customers own one

Considering the HomePod didn’t begin shipping until early February, the lack of hardware upgrades at last week’s September 12 event certainly wasn’t a surprise. Instead, Apple is hoping that its software improvements will be enough to boost sales. After all, as revealed by a new CIRP report, the HomePod isn’t exactly performing brilliantly.As of the very end of June, Apple’s smart speaker had a total market share in the US of just 6%. This relatively low figure is due to two main factors: the late launch date and the high pricing. Now, in the smartphone and wearables market, Apple’s high...

Without Sprint, T-Mobile will need 38K new cell sites to cover its torrid growth rate

Whether T-Mobile and Sprint receive regulatory approval from the FCC and the FTC for their merger is still up in the air. But a new report indicates that if T-Mobile is not allowed to close on the transaction, it will need to spend a lot of money in order to build out its network to match the carrier's impressive growth rate. According to New Street Research, the nation's third largest carrier will need to add 38,000 cell sites and spend 20% more on network capital expenses.New Street says that even without merging with Sprint, T-Mobile is seeing strong customer growth,...
