FCC gives a gift to phone companies, but you’ll foot the bill

Even if you don’t  own a small business or run a giant bank, your wallet — the real one, not the virtual kind — will likely take a hit, courtesy of the FCC.Last Thursday, the commission voted to lift the price caps on business data services, or BDS, used by millions of businesses large and small to move data. Buy something at your local hardware store and pay with a credit card, the transaction is likely verified and recorded over a BDS line. The ATM you use connects to your bank’s server via the same type of connection supplied by phone companies such as Verizon and AT&T.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Samsung Galaxy S8 review: The best phone ever made, only smaller

If you haven’t yet read our extensive review of the Galaxy S8+, you should. Nearly everything said about that phone applies to the smaller Galaxy S8. It’s got the same gorgeous design, the same best-ever display, the same awesome camera, same processor, memory, storage, features…it’s just smaller.The display is 5.8 inches instead of 6.2, and the battery is 3,000 mAh instead of 3,500. These differences, and a price tag about $130 lower, are all the separate the Galaxy S8 from the S8+. That means the problems with the S8+ are apparent here as well, namely an unbelievably bad fingerprint sensor location and the lackluster debut of Samsung’s Bixby AI assistant. Both are annoying, but generally avoidable, and thus only slightly tarnish the Galaxy S8’s shine.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

The ultimate guide to increasing your Android phone’s battery life

We all use our phones differently. And while the batteries inside them should be plenty big enough to last all day without worry, that’s not always the case. With bigger screens, more powerful apps, and streaming everything, it’s rare when we make it from morning till night without a quick charge along the way. Let alone actually last as long as the spec sheets claim. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are quite a few ways your phone’s battery can adapt to your particular routine, and with a few tweaks and toggles, you’ll can gain precious minutes and even hours on a charge. No matter how big your battery is, you can squeeze a little more juice out of it just by making a few changes, some of which you won’t even notice.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

The 12 worst Android phone gimmicks once hailed as ‘innovations’

Sometimes innovation is best left on the drawing boardImage by Ryan WhitwamIt’s hard for a phone to get noticed by consumers when it looks like all the other flat black slabs out there. That has led some OEMs to try some particularly wacky things—gimmicks to set them apart. Just because a gimmick is new doesn’t mean it’s good. In fact, there are a lot of gimmicks that look cool at a tradeshow, but in real life they’re terrible ideas.

Verizon jacks phone upgrade fees from $20 up to $30

If there’s one thing Verizon loves to do, it’s bouncing around the cost of its smartphone upgrade fee. After Verizon introducing a $20 upgrade fee in April 2016, it’s now raising the cost even further. Whenever you swap out your existing phone—whether through a straight-up purchase or a monthly payment plan with the carrier—Verizon adds $30 to your bill. Verizon will refund the charge to anyone who returns their new device within 14 days after purchasing it. When asked about the reason for the price increase Verizon didn’t have much to say beyond a boilerplate statement. “These fees help cover increased cost to provide customers with America’s largest and fastest 4G LTE network,” Verizon told Ars Technica.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Brits could see a huge increase in mobile phone roaming charges after Brexit

British people travelling in Europe may face a huge increase in mobile phone roaming charges after Brexit, according to the Financial Times.
