HTC’s flagship for 2016 has leaked out early, and it looks like yet another iPhone clone.

The One M10 is almost identical to the One A9 that was introduced last October, but it finally does away with the front-facing HTC logo that was universally hated.

Phablets don’t get much prettier than the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 egde+, but if you’re willing to sacrifice stunning design for crazy amounts of battery life, ZeroLemon has you covered.

With its new 3,500mAh battery cases, which look a lot like rubber bricks, you can triple the battery life of your device for a weekend of use without charging.

So the Apple Watch wasn’t the first smartwatch. It just became the most popular in a hurry.

Shortly after its debut last year, the Apple Watch set out to take over the market it was late to, accounting for two-thirds of all smartwatch shipments in 2015, according to a report by analysts with Canalys.

By Canalys estimates, that’s about 12 million units with more than 5 million Apple Watches sold during the final quarter of 2015.

In a petition to the Supreme Court, Apple says the high court shouldn’t waste its time with Samsung’s high-profile appeal in the two companies’ long legal battle over patents.

Samsung filed an appeal in December asking for the Supreme Court to take a look at how the damages were calculated, but Apple argues that even though it was awarded $548 million, the case is “legally unexceptional.”

Samsung’s decision not to launch the Galaxy Note 5 in the U.K. last year, making the Galaxy S7 edge+ its only flagship phablet, may not have worked out quite as well as it hoped.

The South Korean company is reportedly reversing that decision for 2016, with a plan to deliver the Galaxy Note 6 but not the Galaxy S7 edge+ to Great Britain.
