Video shows how to get your S-Pen unstuck in Galaxy Note 5

We’ve heard the arguments pro and against Samsung regarding this whole "S-Pen gets stuck if you put it in backwards in the Galaxy Note 5, from the humorous to the ridiculous to the rational. But the more important thing now, moving forward, particularly for the owners of the newest phablet from the Korean OEM is: “what do you do when your S-Pen actually gets stuck there???” Fortunately, a YouTube tech channel has found a simple and truly inexpensive way to set it free.

LG to show off SmartThinQ Sensor, AllJoyn tech, and appliances at the IFA 2015

LG surprised us with the limited edition Watch Urbane Luxe over the weekend and now we've got news that the South Korean giant is ready to make our homes smarter than ever with the SmartThinQ Sensor. The company will be showcasing this new product that can be attached to a number of appliances at home that can transform them into smart devices. LG calls it "smart-aware" but it's really just a smart appliance.

BlackBerry CEO still not confirming Android phone, says more apps are needed

The previous rumors and recent leaks somehow all point to the possibility of an Android-running BlackBerry device but we have yet to hear from CEO himself John Chen. We all know Chen to be very confident when it comes to saying that the Canadian smartphone pioneer isn't in trouble and is doing okay or is not for sale anytime soon. We believe what he's saying but you can't deny the fact that BlackBerry needs some help now if it wants to remain in the mobile industry. The best thing it can do right now is to finally release a fully Android-powered BlackBerry device which we think is now in the works -- the BlackBerry Venice being the first.

Google Play Services updated to V 8.1 with (unusable) Android Pay 

We thought that the wait for Android Pay was almost over, but a few minutes later, we were proven wrong. We were already disappointed that the rumored launch last Wednesday was obviously wrong, but our hopes were up when the newest update of Google Play Services came out, as Android Pay was already visible. However, this may just be a very short preview, as the feature is still unusable at this point and eventually “disappears”.

Sony Xperia Z5 shown off ahead of IFA launch

We all know that Sony is unveiling the Xperia Z5 in not just one but three variants: the basic Xperia Z5, an Xperia Z5 compact, and the Xperia Z5 Premium. The company has already confirmed and teased it will make an important announcement this week at the IFA 2015 in Berlin. We've heard a number of rumors and seen a lot of leaks already. Just the other day, more press renders were leaked and that the 23MP camera was confirmed.

T-Mobile to go after “network abusers” as per Legere’s tirade 

T-Mobile head honcho John Legere is not one to mince his words or shy away from publicity. We’ve seen him go after competitors and we’ve heard him rant about the bad practices or packages that they have been offering customers. But this time, he is going after his own subscribers. At least, those 1/100 that he says has been "stealing” network data from them by getting around the limited LTE tethered data that they offer customers.

Get productive on any device with AluPen Digital Styls [DEALS]

The launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 might have you pining for a productivity device of your own, but an expensive phablet like Samsung's just isn't in the budget. Or perhaps you're too attached to your current gadget selection to make the switch. Then perhaps the AluPen Digital Stylus might offer a better alternative. For a considerably lower price, you can gain the joys and freedom of scribbling on any Android, or even an iOS, device, without having to swear fealty to some exclusive app or bind yourself to Bluetooth.

BlackBerry Venice sighted in the wild, with slider display and QWERTY keys

We believe that BlackBerry will remain in the business if it starts making Android devices. The smartphone pioneer already started running Android apps on BlackBerry 10 but what the mobile world needs is a true blue Android-powered BlackBerry device. We've been saying that the company is working on an Android device and looks like it's arriving very soon as the BlackBerry Venice was recently caught in the wild and photos were shared on Vietnamese website Tinhte.

Sony to reportedly release Xperia Z5, two other variants on September 2

With IFA 2015 set to start this September 4, we need to prepare ourselves for all the new smartphones and devices that will be introduced and will fight for our attention if we’re looking for a brand new gadget. Sony will supposedly be releasing not just one but three smartphones, including the new flagship Xperia Z5, plus two other variants of that device, the Xperia Z5 Compact, and the Xperia Z5 Premium.
