It's not quite a desktop, but it's not quite a normal home screen. The Android tablet experience is often awkward and awful, and that goes double for the launchers, which are inconsistent, inconvenient, and often times ugly. From third-party launchers to manufacturer versions of tablet layouts, there's a lot to be desired, and while part of that blame falls on developers, it also falls to Google, which has still not quite figured out how tablets should behave. And it falls on us. Because we just don't know what we want. Look at... [Read More]

Huawei P10 likely to break cover in Barcelona. Huawei has begun sending out "save the date" invites for its Mobile World Congress 2017 press conference, which kicks off on the afternoon of Sunday, February 26 in Barcelona, Spain. The invite promises "the global unveiling of a new flagship device" -- a surprising development perhaps, just a couple of months after the Mate 9's arrival. It's likely CEO Richard Yu will take the wraps off the Huawei P10, the successor to the P9, which will surely build on the hardware and software platform of Huawei's latest phablet. The...

If your Facebook battery usage has been especially bad recently, it has apparently been fixed server-side. You don't use Facebook and also get surprised by battery drain issues, especially with the ocean of data to support just how hungry both Facebook and Messenger can be, but recently several users noticed a dramatic spike in power consumption. Some users reported as much a 1% every minute when Facebook Messenger was open, and it turns out that's not the intended battery consumption rate for that app. Facebook's Messenger lead David Marcus responded to a recent complaint about power consumption...

Bucking the trend of other Android manufacturers, ZTE thinks the time is right to launch an Android Wear smartwatch. With the impending release of Android Wear 2.0, and two accompanying wearables from Google itself, ZTE says that it plans to enter the market, according to CNET. "[ZTE] already has a US carrier partner lined up to sell the watch, which has its own LTE connection and can run independent of a phone," the story says, and that battery life, a primary issue with the last generation of smartwatches, has been improved tremendously. Whether independent LTE... [Read More]

Your next flight should include a VR headset. I find myself in an airplane a couple of times a year, and every time the experience is the same. I'm in a small space in a seat that isn't uncomfortable but but still a little awkward, and I usually either grab a book or watch a movie I've downloaded to my tablet. This last trip, I decided to download movies to my phone and watch them through my VR headset. There were no expectations, I mostly wanted to see if watching in VR was any different from watching on... [Read More]

It's all about the way it interacts, says Johna Paolino. Have you ever thought about the fact that there are bigger implications to how you personally interact with your devices?

Paolino writes that Google Home is the first major at-home gadget that she's taken a liking to. A user experience designer at TODO, she attributes it to the fact that Google Home is the complete package: a well-named product that requires an element... [Read More]

If you find yourself with an error message telling you that... [Read More]

The eternal quest for longer battery life in smartphones continues on, as evermore efficient chips and bigger batteries are in a battle with new software, apps, features and big screens.
