A few lucky cities will get AT&T’s 5G network by the end of the year

5G vs 4G

I still can't get a good LTE signal in my kitchen, but that's not stopping the wireless networks fearlessly powering into the future. AT&T has announced plans for rolling out "5G Evolution," a beta version of the 5G standard, to 20 metro areas by the end of 2017.

Samsung’s facial recognition tech needs years of work before it will be ready for mobile payments

Galaxy S8 facial recognition

Samsung's new flagship Galaxy S8 is packed with interesting new features, but a few of them haven't been received quite as well as the phone maker might have hoped they would be. One of those features is facial recognition, which is perhaps the easiest biometric authentication method to trick.

Considering the security concerns surrounding facial recognition, you shouldn't be surprised to learn that it will be quite some time before the feature is used for secure mobile payments.

Why a delayed iPhone 8 launch would make sense

iPhone 8 release date rumors

For the last seven or eight years, Apple has followed a boring and predictable pattern. Every fall, a series of Apple execs are wheeled on stage in California to explain why the old iPhone is toast, the new iPhone is here, and you have to start waiting in line RIGHT NOW to go buy one.

It's a well-oiled and efficient process: the phone is shown on stage first; a week later, the first reviews come out from insiders, just to keep excitement up; one week after that, pre-orders arrive and stock arrives in stores. But for the launch of the iPhone 8, we might have to go outside our comfort zone.

iPhone 8 vs Galaxy S8: rumors, specs

We already know that the big mobile battle of the year is going to be the iPhone 8 versus the Galaxy S8. You can have a subjective argument about which device has the best design or sharpest camera, but one thing that's harder to debate is the power of the processors inside.

Benchmarking apps like Geekbench can stress and test a processor and assign a score based on the results, and that's apparently what one tipster has already managed to do for the iPhone 8. The news, unsurprisingly, is not good for Samsung.

Turn any iPhone 7 Plus into a Jet Black iPhone with this glossy skin

Apple fans are always ravenous for new colors and designs on the company's devices, so it came as no surprise when the Jet Black iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus immediately became the most difficult iPhones to find when they launched last year. If you weren't willing to wait for the Jet Black stock to replenish, you probably went ahead and picked up a Gold, Silver or standard Black iPhone instead.

It's a frustrating concession to make, but if you still want a Jet Black iPhone (and don't want to have to pay $600 or so to get one), a glossy skin from EasySkinz can do the trick for a fraction of the price.
