Snap - Widget Drawer Adds A Pull-Down Widget Screen That's Accessible From Anywhere

Posted: 30 Nov 2015 02:57 PM PST

unnamedWidgets and pull-down notifications have been a part of Android for a very long time, but what if you combined them? Snap - Widget Drawer is essentially a second notification shade, but instead of notifications, it's populated with widgets. Plus, it's accessible from anywhere, no matter what else you're doing on the phone.

While Snap appears to be a system notification shade, it's actually an app that's overlayed on top of everything else.

AT&T is increasing the price of unlimited data plans by $5 in February

Posted: 30 Nov 2015 02:32 PM PST

While other carriers have begun to offer unlimited data again (with some caveats), AT&T has remained recalcitrant on the issue. Now the nation's second largest carrier is taking a step to try and urge customers off of grandfathered unlimited data plans. Beginning in February, AT&T customers who are grandfathered into unlimited data plans will be charged an extra $5 per month, in a move clearly designed to nudge customers off of their unlimited data plans.

9to5Mac and The Verge first reported the news, but now CNET has gained confirmation from an AT&T spokesperson that this price hike will indeed be happening.

The spokesperson said, "To help ensure we can continue to provide the best service for all of our customers, a small price increase is being made at this time."

This price increase may be small, but it's symbolic of AT&T's displeasure at its customers still on unlimited data plans. Will the raise actually push customers off of unlimited data plans? In reality, it's not too likely that these customers will give up their unlimited data over an extra $5/month. Most of these people are quite dedicated to their unlimited data plans, which can easily be seen by the fact that they've held onto unlimited data for five years now since it was discontinued.

The aptly named Arts & Culture app contains images and data on works of art and relics of the past from more than 850 museums and organizations around the world. And it's free—not even a "suggested" donation.

This is more than just snapshots of paintings and dusty old pottery. You can learn about the history of each piece, and even explore museums and landmarks in 360-degrees.

Sonos Plans To Release A Beta Update With Apple Music Compatibility December 15th

Say what you will about Apple, its music streaming service isn't half bad. But no matter how nice a music app is, the experience gets improved by taking the sound out of subpar phone speakers and funneling it through something with some oomph. Sonos users will soon have that option.

Apple and Sonos are working on getting compatibility out to users. The experience isn't ready yet, but the companies plan to have a beta ready on December 15th.

WhatsApp Is Blocking Telegram Links In The Android App

Posted: 30 Nov 2015 12:11 PM PST

telegramban

Honest companies are expected to retain their users by offering the best service they can provide and not by actively locking them in and making it hard to switch to a competitor. Google, for example, lets users easily download all their contacts, bookmarks, photos, emails, and other personal data though Google Takeout. From there, anyone is free to close their account and move to a competing service, no questions asked. There are certainly companies that don't behave this way, but this is usually viewed with disapproving eyes — particularly when the company in question is already the biggest player on the market.

Cyber Monday deals: Acer Chromebook 15 for $249.99

Posted: 30 Nov 2015 11:46 AM PST

While small and light is definitely the bread and butter of Chromebooks, sometimes a large high-resolution screen is the answer, and the Acer Chromebook 15 is one of the only options that fits that bill in Chromebook land.

At $349, the full HD version of the Acer Chromebook 15 with Intel processor is a little on the pricey end of things for a Chromebook (ignoring the Pixel, anyway), but today the 32GB SSD version will only set you back $249 direct from Acer. And if you want a dedicated Chromebook to use around the house it is a pretty fantastic device. If you don't care about extra storage and are an Amazon diehard, you can get the 16GB SSD model for the same $249.

It comes with 4GB of RAM — which should really be the minimum allowable — a 32GB SSD, HDMI out, 1 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.0 port. The speakers are also notably better than most I've found on Chromebooks, due in no small part to the extra space available for them.

I've been using this exact model for the last few months, and while it isn't the sort of thing I would want to travel with, it has been an awesome laptop to have around the house for watching video and getting work done.

The larger high-resolution screen allows for truly useful side-by-side windows, as opposed to the often cramped quarters on Chromebooks. The Intel processor coupled with 4GB of RAM is plenty of power to keep Chrome OS running smoothly, even if you have my habit of opening a completely irrational number of windows and tabs.

If you have any questions about the Chromebook 15, just let me know in comments and I'll answer as best I can.

Review: Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro, a multimedia hub

Posted: 30 Nov 2015 11:46 AM PST

Working in the Android blogosphere, I've had the opportunity to review quite a few devices. Yet, the company that continually ceases to impress me is Lenovo. While most other companies follow tried and true formulas for new devices, Lenovo has continued to innovate and try new ideas. Do these concepts always work? No, but that's part of the beauty of Lenovo. It's a company that's not afraid to take risks.

The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro is Lenovo's latest Android tablet, and one of the most interesting to date. Like its predecessor, it features a host of multimedia capabilities, including a surprisingly good sound set-up and the remarkable addition of a built-in projector. What do all of those interesting features add up to in a tablet? Read on to find out.

1. Hardware

_DSC6334

Lenovo has a lot of experience in hardware, and it shows in the Yoga Tab 3 Pro. The device has a 10.1-inch QHD (2560×1600) IPS display that has a PPI of 299. Inside, the Yoga Tab 3 Pro packs a quad-core 2.2GHz Intel Atom processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage plus a microSD card slot and a 9600mAh battery. It also has a 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and LTE.

For the multimedia features, you're looking at four front-facing JBL speakers that are utilizing Dolby Atmos technology for loud, crisp sound. Lenovo has also outfitted the Yoga Tab 3 Pro with a built-in projector that features a brightness of 50 lumens and a projector image size of up to 70 inches.

As far as hardware goes, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro has you covered.

2. Design and Build Quality

Lenovo's past tablets have excelled in terms of design and build quality, but the Yoga Tab 3 Pro takes that fame even further. The device still features that classic Lenovo design with a cylindrical battery and kickstand, but it swaps out the textured plastic back for faux leather, which adds an air of refinement. The faux leather is also far more comfortable to grip than the bumpy, textured plastic.

The distinctive kickstand still features a number of different poses, including the interesting ability to hang on a hook. This may initially be a little baffling, but it has some uses. You can use it to comfortably watch a movie without a solid surface to place the tablet on or you can use Lenovo's eFrame software, which allows the Yoga Tab 3 Pro to become a digital picture frame or calendar. The calendar features gorgeous landscape photos and actually has some use, as well as being aesthetically pleasing.

As far as build quality goes, I wouldn't be worried about the Yoga Tab 3 Pro. It feels sturdy and well-constructed, with no creaking or flexing in the body. The size of the tablet also aids in the build quality, as it's much smaller than its predecessor, making drops less likely.

Cheers to Lenovo for continuing its tradition of excellent design and build quality.

3. Display

_DSC6369

Sharp though it may be, the display on the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro could still use a bit of work. Whites are a little tinted, and colors are saturated, but slightly off. Blacks are actually quite deep for an IPS display, and pleasantly enough, we couldn't find any light bleeds on our unit, which has been a problem for some of Lenovo's past tablets.

While the display may not be perfect, it's very sharp and is perfectly decent for viewing movies, pictures and other content.

4. Software

Lenovo has had a rough time with software in the past, but with the Yoga Tab 3 Pro, the company finally seems to be listening and has held back a bit on the software. Past versions have been heavy with customization, which led to a lot of lag and slowdowns. This new software still has some problems with bogging down, but it's less heavy than past software and also looks much nicer.

Lenovo may still be better off just ditching its own software and going with stock Android, but if it can work on the performance optimization and make the UI a little more cohesive, we might able to accept that as a compromise.

As one downside, the Yoga Tab 3 Pro is running Android 5.1 Lollipop rather than the newer Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Lenovo doesn't have a great track record with timely updates, so if you prefer to have the latest and greatest software, you may want to look elsewhere.

5. Performance

_DSC6325

As mentioned in the software section, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro does have a performance bugs. During some animations in Lenovo's custom software, the device will lag or stutter. Most of these seem related to Lenovo's software customization rather than to the hardware or OS itself. As far as specs go, it should be quite capable of handling itself without lag, as long as it's properly optimized by Lenovo.

A little more work and Lenovo could have a very powerful tablet on its hands.

6. Battery

With Lenovo's past tablets boasting impressive battery life, we expected a lot from the Yoga Tab 3 Pro. Fortunately, it delivered. Lenovo estimates about 18 hours of usage time, but we were able to stretch that to about 20 hours without a problem. The Yoga Tab 3 Pro brings in a 10,200mAh battery and, as an added bonus, it does support fast charging, which significantly reduces the amount of time needed to get a charge.

Keep in mind that using the built-in projector is going to burn through more battery. But if you're running low, it's easy to fill back up again with the fast charging. All in all, Lenovo has once again delivered solid battery performance.

7. Multimedia Features

_DSC6414

Not a category that we usually use in reviews, this one is for devices like the Yoga Tab 3 Pro that bring in unique features for multimedia. The sound on the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro is something special, with the device delivering very crisp sound, even at high volumes. Even more impressive than the crispness is the actual volume of the speakers. The four speakers can get rather shockingly loud, making a perfect companion for the projector, as you likely won't have to worry about using external speakers to make sure everyone can hear.

The built-in projector is the other unique feature and while seemingly odd, it's actually full of uses. Not only can the projector make it very easy to watch a movie with friends, but it also has more practical applications for the professional world. It's quite easy to run through a PowerPoint or slide show on the Yoga Tab 3 Pro, and the projector gives you a simple and portable way to display it to others. Very handy, indeed.

Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro8 / 10

_DSC6340

Lenovo has spent the last couple of years creating interesting devices and then refining them based on feedback. The Yoga Tab 3 Pro is the latest step in the refinement process, and it shows significant improvements over its predecessors. It's faster, sleeker and more functional than previous models. It's continued to take the unique core elements of Lenovo's tablets and develop even more uses for them.

These refinements ultimately lead to a better experience for the user, which is the end goal. As it stands, Lenovo can continue to refine a few things, but the company is headed in a very good direction with the Yoga Tab 3 Pro.

Lenovo usually lists the Yoga Tab 3 Pro for $499, but is currently sold out on its website. Best Buy, however, does have the device in stock for $449.

ASUS doesn't just make low-price Android phones and tablets with regrettable amounts of bloatware. The company is a major manufacturer of all kinds of consumer electronics, including laptops, PC components, and network equipment - and ASUS routers have some of the best bang-to-buck ratio on the market. That said, their browser-based management tools are designed for desktops, so accessing them to change any settings on your local Wi-Fi network is a major headache on Android.
