    The latest Pixel 4 leak is an app that automatically transcribes your voice memos

    We already seem to know a lot about Google’s upcoming Pixel 4, including one of its new apps: “Recorder,” a new voice recorder app. In a recent 9to5Google hands-on, the app seemed pretty basic — hit a button to record, then share that audio file with other apps. Surprisingly, though, Google seems to have updated Recorder before it’s even been released, with one particularly handy feature: automatic audio transcription.

    iPhone SE 2 will launch at $399, Apple analyst Kuo predicts

    Last month Apple launched the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. They're great phones but, starting at between $699 and $1,099, one thing they ain't is cheap. But according to noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of TF Securities, Apple will soon be releasing a more affordable option in the iPhone SE 2. Kuo previously predicted the SE 2 would come in early 2020, and now expects it to launch for $399.

    2015 Was the Year We Started Buying Phones Like Cars

    For years, the process of buying a phone remained largely the same. You paid $200 for a flagship, or nothing for a clunker, and in exchange agreed to ride out a two-year contract with the carrier offering the best deal (or service) at the time. All that went away in 2015. People don’t buy phones like they used to. Now they buy them like cars. The key difference between how people bought phones then and now is consumers know what a phone really costs.

    We Are Hopelessly Hooked

    We check our phones 221 times a day—an average of every 4.3 minutes—according to a UK study. This number actually may be too low, since people tend to underestimate their own mobile usage. In a 2015 Gallup survey, 61 percent of people said they checked their phones less frequently than others they knew. Our transformation into device people has happened with unprecedented suddenness.

    Digitally weary users switch to ‘dumb’ phones

    In January, British actor Eddie Redmayne made headlines around the world as he became the latest in a growing band of smartphone refuseniks. “It was a reaction against being glued permanently to my iPhone during waking hours,” he explained, turning instead to an old-fashioned “dumb phone” handset that could only make and take calls.

    Apple's next event is happening Monday, March 21st, when we're expecting it to unveil a new iPhone, a new iPad, and likely a bit more. The announcements are shaping up to be a sequel to those made at Apple's last event, held six months ago. There, Apple announced the iPhone 6S, iPad Pro, an expansion of Apple Watch designs, and updates to iOS. This month, picture all of that repeated, but smaller. The current speculation is...

    Why you shouldn't expect a long-lasting smartphone battery any time soon

    It's happened to everyone who owns a powerful smartphone. You wake up in the morning, reach over to your nightstand to pick up your phone, only to realize you forgot to plug in the charging cable. Now, the battery indicator is blinking red. You might as well kiss your productivity on the commute to work goodbye.

    This $99 box transforms any smartphone into a 3D printer. No, seriously

    If you’ve spent the last few years holding out for a 3D printer that costs under a hundred bucks, then we’ve got good news for you: The printer you’re waiting for is finally here, and it goes by the name of OLO. The device, which first popped up at last year’s Maker Faire in New York, has finally found its way onto Kickstarter — where it obliterated its $80K funding goal in just a few hours.

    America’s favorite smartphone isn’t an iPhone

    There’s little question that iPhone users love their smartphones. Regardless of how negative the current news cycle is, Apple’s iPhone lineup is still the best-selling smartphone line in the world by a wide margin. Studies and surveys also consistently show that Apple retains smartphone customers better than any other phone brand, and this has been the case for years. Interestingly, however, a new major study has found that a new smartphone is now the Apple of the American consumer’s eye.

    This is what it's like to use a $4 Android phone

    Four. That's how many US dollars the Freedom 251 costs. It's a shockingly low number, especially if you're used to doling out $600 for a flagship phone. And despite raising many eyebrows when it was unveiled by Indian company Ringing Bells back in February -- with some doubting that the phone would materialise at that price -- not only is the Freedom 251 real, it's also surprisingly decent.

    Consumer Reports: Samsung phone not actually water resistant

    Consumer Reports says a Samsung phone that's advertised as being "water resistant" actually isn't. The problem appears limited to the Galaxy S7 Active, a rugged model available only through AT&T in the U.S. The standard S7 and S7 Edge models have the same claims on water resistance and passed tests. Consumer Reports, a non-profit organization that is well respected for its product testing, said Friday that it can't recommend the Active because it doesn't meet Samsung's own claims.

    Phones without headphone jacks are here... and they're annoying as fuck

    "Wah wah wah. Get over it Ray." That's the response I expect to hear from all the apologists who think that smartphones without headphone jacks are NBD. I'll agree to disagree. The headphone jack and loss of it on the devices we use the most is a very big deal. A massive deal. A deal of epic proportions that will have ramifications on not just phones but the entire consumer electronics world. NBD my butt.

    LG is quadrupling down on the headphone jack

    LG is building up to the September 6th launch of its second flagship phone for 2016, the V20, by revealing little snippets and details about it ahead of time. First up is the sound, which this year will be powered by no less than four ESS digital-to-analog converters, all working in concert to produce more refined sound and higher signal-to-noise ratio. This quad-DAC approach is similar to what you’ll find in the Apogee Groove USB DAC and amplifier, and there is indeed merit in the multiplication of internal complexity beyond mere spec bloat.
