Microsoft AppComparison Shows You How Many Of Your Apps Are Available On Windows Phone (Spoiler: Not Many)

Posted: 20 Nov 2015 02:39 PM PST

unnamedMicrosoft is getting ready for a big Windows 10 Mobile push after more than five years of toiling in vain on Windows Phone. In hopes of encouraging Android users to jump ship, Microsoft has released AppCompare, an app that tells you if the apps you have installed on your Android device are available on Windows Phone. If this sounds familiar, that's because Microsoft already tried this, and it didn't go well.

HTC announces its Black Friday, Cyber Monday deals

Posted: 20 Nov 2015 12:52 PM PST

HTC has been getting into the holiday spirit by offering Hot Deals every Tuesday. If you still havn't been tempted to buy anything from the company's website, HTC is hoping that its upcoming deals around Black Friday and Cyber Monday will be compelling enough to help you part with at least some of your hard-earned cash.

First up is the HTC One A9. Without a contract, the phone sells for $499, but HTC is willing to hand over its new smartphone for free if you have a qualifying iPhone that you'll part with. If you buy the One A9 on HTC's site between November 26 and December 2, HTC will offer you a nice rebate that will vary based on the phone you trade in.

  • Trade in an iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s Plus for a $499.99 rebate (full price of the HTC One A9)
  • Trade in a Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge for a $200 rebate
  • Trade in a LG G3 or G4 for a $100 rebate

HTC is also offering incredible savings on the HTC One M9, Nexus 9, HTC RE and all accessories that are available on its site. The dates for these deals are all over the board, so we recommend creating a calendar reminder to make sure that you don't miss the deal that's best for you.

  • 40% off all Nexus 9 models: Thursday, November 26 – Friday, November 27 (free Logitech Keyboard for the first 500 customers who buy the 32GB LTE model)
  • 40% off all accessories: Saturday, November 28 – Sunday, November 29
  • 60% off RE camera: Monday, November 30 – Wednesday, December 2 (first 900 units come with a free RE Protection Pack with your RE Camera)
  • 40% off HTC One M9: Monday, November 30 – Wednesday, December 2

As with all holiday sales, the offers listed are only valid while supplies last. We're hoping that HTC has plenty of supply to go around, but we recommend setting an alarm clock and hitting HTC's site first thing on in the morning to ensure you can take advantage of these ridiculously low prices.

HTC One A9 to receive monthly security updates

Posted: 20 Nov 2015 11:52 AM PST

HTC is giving consumers another reason to buy the familiar but undeniably beautiful HTC One A9 today in the form of monthly security updates.

When HTC announced the One A9, it guaranteed the device would see updates just 15 business days after Google's own Nexus devices. Now, the company is clarifying that doesn't apply to just major firmware revisions, but Google's monthly security updates as well. The November security update should be rolling out sometime today.

Security has become a largely publicized issue for Android manufacturers lately. It's nice to see HTC step up and tackle the problem head on. Does this make the One A9 more attractive to you?

Samsung Gear VR “Review” Roundup

Posted: 20 Nov 2015 11:22 AM PST

The Samsung Gear VR has been around for over a year now, but previous offerings were only compatible with a single device and were always treated as beta products by Samsung. That all changes with the release of the new Gear VR, with the price drop to $99 bringing it into the mainstream just in time for the holidays. And while you still need a Samsung smartphone, the new hardware supports all 2015 flagships, including the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+ and Note 5.

Reviews started popping up from some outlets this morning, and most seem to have had relatively limited time with the device and are not terming their coverage as a true review yet. Nonetheless, the first impressions are interesting and should give those of you waiting for your pre-orders to arrive or wanting to snatch it up as soon as possible a good idea of what to expect.

Gear VR "Review" roundup

What critics are saying about the Gear VR

  • Comfort: "The Gear VR itself is light…0.62 pounds to be exact." "But in my testing of the device over a week, the video strained my eyes and the extra weight on my head made my neck sore." "The headset is now lighter and more comfortable than previous models. It feels good in the hand and very comfortable on the face." "You can comfortably fit glasses inside, and there's also a focus adjustment that makes the view more pleasurable for aging eyes. Yet there's still some discomfort. Wearing anything on your face for an hour can get old." "VR is funny that way. I didn't find the headset too heavy, but its physical, visceral effects came at a cost. Each half-hour session left me with a slight headache and disorientation that bordered on nausea."
  • Battery/heat: "The two concerns that I had about the Gear VR in earlier versions, battery drain and overheating phones, have largely been mitigated. An hour of solid use hits my Note 5 for anywhere from 15-20 percent." "Oh, and keep a charger nearby: VR will devastate your phone's battery life." "My test Galaxy S6 Edge Plus worked so hard when mounted, it could blow through its huge battery with an hour or two of intensive VR." "Plan for between two to five hours of use,…There is a micro-USB port if you'd like to charge while you play,…You're also going to notice that your phone gets very hot while playing, although the Gear VR will warn you if it gets too hot and may ask you to take a short break to let things cool down." 
  • Controls: "The Gear VR adds a touchpad on the right side that's equally useful for scrolling through movie titles and zapping alien spaceships, though it takes a little getting used to." "All of the controls are easily accessible, but just separated enough to avoid unintentional button presses. You can also pair a Samsung or third-party Bluetooth controller with the phone, which comes in handy for some of games, particularly the old-school titles you can play in the Arcade app, stand-up cabinets and all." 
  • Audio: "There's a cut out for plugging in wired headphones, but you're better off using wireless headphones." "A bluetooth headset is a must: the audio pumping out of your phone's speakers isn't nearly as engrossing as having the enclosed aural experience you'll get from a good set of headphones." 
  • Content: "There are currently more than 100 games, apps, and "experiences" available in the store—many of them free—and Max Cohen, Oculus' head of mobile, says that there are are least 40 more coming in the next couple of months." "Oculus and Samsung made sure to populate the store with a staggering amount of curated content beyond interactive movie trailers and tech demos." "My favorite VR experience thus far takes on a much slower pace: it's Land's End, an adventure game from the creators of Monument Valley. It's gorgeous; sort of a lo-fi take on Myst, controlled with your head and eyes." "Gear VR has a seemingly endless array of video apps, not to mention a pretty decent Netflix app, but the experience of Oculus Video has them all beat." "The Steam version of Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes has been a surprise viral hit, but in our opinion the best version can be found on Gear VR. You put on the headset, give your friends printed out directions on how to defuse the bombs you're about to face and off you go."

5 Word Wrap Up: "Samsung owners buy it now"

Overall the reviews are tremendously positive. To be sure, there are still areas for improvement and naturally, the Gear VR cannot stand against PC-powered VR devices like Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, but the most common conclusion across the reviews was that at $99 it is an easy recommendation for anyone that already owns a 2015 Samsung flagship phone and a great gateway to VR.

Google wants to launch Play store in China next year

Posted: 20 Nov 2015 10:52 AM PST

Google is looking to launch a totally customized version of its Play app store next year in China.

According to Reuters, the store would be separate from other versions of the Play Store in order to comply with China's strict filtering rules. Citing sources familiar with the matter, Reuters said the app store would be just the first step, paving the way for future Google products to debut in the country in the future.

Google originally pulled its services out of China in 2010, as the company didn't want to continue complying with censorship laws. As one of the largest markets on the planet, Google has apparently decided China is simply too big to ignore.

Magic Leap snatches up HTC Vive marketing director

Posted: 20 Nov 2015 06:23 AM PST

The list of senior executives who have left HTC to peruse other career opportunities just got a little longer. Jeff Gattis, director of global marketing for HTC's Connected Devices division, has taken a new position at Magic Leap as head of product marketing. During his short stint at HTC, Gattis oversaw the final details of the HTC RE launch and was responsible for HTC's global marketing efforts around the HTC RE, HTC Vive and the HTC Grip (which never actually launched). Under the marketing direction of Jeff Gattis, HTC was hoping its Connected Devices category would expand the company's reach and allow for broader growth opportunities that were not tied specifically to smartphones and tablets. 

As you may know, Magic Leap is a Google-backed VR startup that managed to raise more than $500 million last year alone. Magic Leap is still in its development phase and most of the details of the project are still secret. In an interview with UploadVR, Jeff does give a little insight as to what Magic Leap hopes to accomplish without giving away any clue as to what the hardware is or how the technology actually works.

"(Magic Leap) is actually going to impact lives and it's something that we could have with us all the time as we move throughout the world. They talk about replacing screens. This is just from a business standpoint, we're talking about a huge potential market, and then the application scenarios under that are almost infinite.

Again, I'm just talking about the breadth of the potential for Magic Leap. That's what excites me. It's not just about creating a great gaming device, but actually doing something that could potentially change the world."

The only reference for what Magic Leap's virtual/augmented reality will be like comes from a demo video that was released by Magic Leap last month. The disclosure in the video would have you assume that what's shown is exactly what someone would experience while using Motion Leap.

Video disclosure: "Shot directly through Magic Leap technology on October 14, 2015. No special effects or compositing were used in the creation of these videos. "

It's disappointing to see yet another top-level executive say goodbye to HTC. We're sure HTC will survive Jeff Gattis' departure, but we're hoping that this doesn't have an impact on HTC's plans to launch the Vive before the end of the year.

FCC doesn’t see any issues with T-Mobile’s new Binge On feature

Posted: 20 Nov 2015 06:08 AM PST

In T-Mobile's quest to change what mobile service providers look like, the company has raised a few eyebrows with the introduction of Music Freedom and its new Binge On feature. If you have T-Mobile service, streaming music and video from specific services does not count against your data allotment, allowing you to watch as many videos or stream as much music as you want. On the surface, the services are a huge benefit to consumers since many will be able to purchase cheaper plans that include lower data caps, but many have voiced their concerns, pointing out the new features could be detrimental to the services that provide streaming music or video if they are not bundled into T-Mobile's Music Freedom and Binge On service. T-Mobile already includes most major streaming services and is working to add more to the list. That being said, consumers may opt to stop using lesser known streaming services that have not yet made T-Mobile's list in an effort to reduce their data usage.

Fortunately for T-Mobile, the FCC's Chairman doesn't agree with the concerns that have been raised so far. After the latest FCC meeting, Tom Wheeler mentioned that the FCC is "pro competition and pro innovation," adding that T-Mobile's new Binge On feature is "highly innovative and highly competitive." There's a good chance that Binge On could negatively impact smaller video streaming services, but that's not T-Mobile's intention.

What's your take on T-Mobile's Music Freedom and Binge On? Do you think these features which give priority to specific content providers will hurt consumers in the long run?
