This post is the first segment of our Verizon Galaxy Note 3 Problems series. The issues I addressed in this post came from our readers and are very common as you may encounter them sooner or later.

Before anything else, I just want to say that the solutions or fixes we provide are all recommendations or suggestions. You may or may not follow them if you think they are potentially destructive to your...

The first Android Wear devices may have just arrived on some peoples’ doorsteps, but they are already getting software updates. The Samsung Gear Live received its first update last night and the LG G Watch has gotten it this morning. The Samsung Gear Live’s update keeps the firmware at Android 4.4W and the build number has been increased to KMV78V. There are no release notes for this update, but presumably it fixes some last minute bugs. Like the Gear Live, the LG G Watch’s update also has no release notes to go with...

HTC has issued a brief media statement earlier today speaking about its performance in Q2 2014. And it’s all good news if you’re an investor of the company as HTC has managed to rake in profits of NT$2.26 billion after tax. This is roughly around $75.6 million, which might not be big enough in the long term, but a welcome change nonetheless, considering that the company has posted losses for the past couple of quarters. A large part of this success is credited to the company’s recent One M8 flagship and the myriad...

Yesterday, a leak showed us what looked like an “alpha” version of the OnePlus website with a separate section for the OnePlus Tab. The company has now clarified that this is merely the work of a photoshop artist and that the company has no intentions of launching a tablet this year. This puts an end to what could have been an endless cycle of rumors and speculations, which is a commendable move from the company. As for what to expect from the company in the future, it seems like OnePlus One will pretty much be the only...

PayPal has now brought its official application to the Samsung Gear 2 smartwatch, allowing customers to seamlessly make transactions on the go. This comes a few days after the app was announced to be launching on Android Wear devices. PayPal is one of the world’s largest money transfer portals and having a dedicated app on one of Samsung’s premier smartwatches will surely have a massive impact. Customers can download the app via the Gear Manager app on their compatible Samsung smartphone and sideload it to the Gear 2. The...

Chinese manufacturer Lenovo is climbing up the ladder in the smartphone industry, mostly with its offerings in China. A new report indicates that the company could take it to a new level this year with approximately 60 handsets expected to be launched. This doesn’t come as a surprise as the dynamics have changed since the past couple of years and launching one or three smartphones per year just won’t cut it. Luckily for Lenovo, it has the resources to churn out plenty of new smartphones every year. We must note here that...

A new leak has revealed that OnePlus could be working on a tablet which is simply known as the OnePlus Tab. Given the shipping delays its smartphone is facing, it might be a bit farfetched to expect a tablet at this juncture, but the leak says otherwise. Interestingly, the leak originates from the alpha version of the OnePlus website which has a mention in the products column for something known as the OnePlus Tab.
