  • Verizon Wireless may be throttling Netflix and YouTube streams

    Throttling seems to be an unavoidable practice these days.

    Use too much data and you get throttled. Use data on a busy network cell and you get throttled. But the throttling numerous reddit users have been seeing doesn’t seem to match any conventional rules. Users on both new and old “Unlimited” plans are seeing speeds drop on two of the nation’s most popular video platforms regardless of how much data they’ve used.

    Once upon a time, Netflix essentially throttled itself for mobile users to save their users from high data bills, but Netflix gave that up in lieu of a handy in-app mobile data control. Even with Netflix set to Unlimited, several Verizon users are seeing consistently capped speeds at 10 Mbps on fast.com, Netflix’s speed test, as well on YouTube with the “stats for nerds” enabled.

    10 Mbps is loads better than the 1.5 Mbps throttling we’ve seen on T-Mobile once they start throttling accounts. It’s just good enough for 1080p video, but not for any HDR video, and being t…

  • U.S. Department of Labor investigation into Google gender pay gap could change Silicon Valley

    Android’s maker has been ordered to hand over 8,000 employees’ contact info for failing to adhere to equal pay laws.

    It’s been a few days since a judge ruled that Google had to hand over 8,000 of its employees’ contact information to the U.S. Department of Labor, but the reason for it remains a prescient matter — and one worth studying up on before heading into the weekend.

    Android’s maker is currently under investigation for allegedly failing to comply with equal pay laws, those of which were initially set to abolish any pay disparity based on gender. (Fifty years on and we’re still having issues with this, though the gap is getting narrower.) The Washington Post reports that evidence of this was uncovered during a routine audit.

    The Department of Labor will have to sift through all 8,000 of the contacts — which Google bartered down from 21,000 — and interview each person about how much they make, and then cross reference it with the rest of their co-workers in …

  • Essential Phone is coming ‘in a few weeks’ after certification delay

    A deadline apparently isn’t essential to the Essential Phone.

    Andy Rubin’s bizarre, bezel-less Essential Phone went up for order at the end of May. It was promised to ship in June. It is now the middle of July, and still the Essential Phone is not in buyers’ hands. And it’s not going to be in buyers’ hands for another couple of weeks, but today Essential is acknowledging their delays in an email sent to early registrants (and later in a public tweet) from Andy Rubin.

    We’ve been working around the clock to get our first device in your hands. See this update from Andy. pic.twitter.com/bm5xm5XRKS— Essential (@essential) July 21, 2017
    In a recent email to customers, Andy Rubin says that they’re as anxious to get phones to users as buyers are to get their new phones. Rubin claims the phone is currently being tested and certified by carriers in the U.S.
    and around the globe, and that units will ship out in the few weeks once all that’s over. Testing and certifications for carriers…

  • Keep your devices charged with Samsung-certified Micro-USB cables for $20

    Micro-USB cables are a dime a dozen, but when you need one most, it’s nowhere to be found. If you’re rocking a Samsung phone or tablet, you’re likely in need of a Micro-USB cable quite regularly (unless you have the Galaxy S8).

    Keep your devices synced and charged for $20 Learn more

    If your phone’s on low battery, it can be incredibly annoying to have to sit right next to a wall outlet to charge up your device. It can also be a pain if you’re charging off your laptop, but the cable’s only long enough to reach your thigh. You need a reliable Micro-USB cable that’s long enough to keep everything comfortable.

    At Android Central Digital Offers you can get a 3-pack of Samsung-certified Micro-USB cables and a fast charging adapter for only $19.99 . This bundle regularly retails for $39.99, so you save 50%.

    These cables are 10 feet in length, so you can easily have your phone on your bedside table without having to reach and strain out of bed to get to a wall outlet. With the Samsun…

  • Galaxy Note 8 renders give clean look at boxier design, Infinity Display

    We just can’t wait for the Galaxy Note 8, can we?

    After last year’s debacle, I think it’s safe to say, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 may be the most hotly anticipated Galaxy Note ever. Whether you wanted to upgrade last year but never got the chance — or worse, upgraded and had to give your Note 7 back — there are many users out there who’ve been waiting for a new Note more anxiously than in years past. And while we’ll have to wait until August to see much of the Note 8’s software, we’re getting yet another look at its sexy exterior with some new casemaker renders from BGR.

    The front of the device matches the Galaxy S8, but we see the new dual-camera setup on the back of the phone alongside that rear-mounted — and quite high-up — fingerprint scanner. The ports on the bottom of the phone match the S8, as well, except for that distinctive S Pen slot next to that single speaker grille. These are renderings made by casemakers, so while some details might change, t…

  • [Deal Alert] Best Buy has Verizon Galaxy S8 for $17.50/month ($420) and S8+ for $21.50/month ($516)

    The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are getting extremely cheap for what it is, especially considering they’re only about three months old. We’re not entirely sure why, but hey, we’re not going to complain about it. The latest deal is for the Verizon models at Best…

  • These are the cheapest data plans you can buy in the U.S.

    Have a carrier in mind or just looking for a cheap plan? Here are the cheapest plans you can get from every one.

    All prices valid as of July 21, 2017

    If you’re hellbent on saving money on your wireless plan, then you have to get away from the Big Four carriers (T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, Verizon). Smaller carriers, called mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) or alternative carriers, lease coverage from the larger networks and resell it for less.

    That being said, depending on your usage and needs, a plan from one of the Big Four might actually be your least expensive option. Here we go.

    Before choosing a plan

    Before you choose a carrier and/or a wireless plan, it’s best to first determine your needs and usage habits. If this is your first smartphone, I’d like to first welcome you to the 21st Century and secondly encourage you to try out your options without getting yourself into any yearly or multi-year contracts.

    If this ain’t your first rodeo, then reflect on your phone …

  • Samsung Galaxy S8 review: Three months later

    This is how Samsung’s 2017 flagship has held up after three months of use.

    The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are still top-of-mind for those looking to buy a flagship phone today, so it’s hard to believe they’ve actually been available for a full three months already. Our initial review was published on April 18, and I’ve been using the phone since that week. Naturally I’ve hopped around to other phones in that time, but continued coming back to the Galaxy S8 as it’s maintained a “primary device” designation for me.

    With a few months of use under my belt, I have a better feeling for the Galaxy S8 than we ever could just using a phone for a week or two before a review. Here’s how the Galaxy S8 is holding up for me, and where I think it stands in the smartphone world as we move through July.

    Still a beauty

    More time with the hardware

    I’ve held a lot of excellent smartphone hardware this year, in particular the LG G6, Sony Xperia XZ Premium and HTC U11. Each of those phones has its own perso…

  • Google Search upgrades its dictionary card with a separate search box, autocomplete, and history

    No matter what crazy projects Google works on, Search is still the company’s bread and butter. Over the years, it’s continued to build up the good old Google Search page with small but useful improvements. The latest of these is a change to the way it…
