Samsung has long been giving away access to premium services as an incentive to buy its products, but its latest offering is by far its best yet. For a limited time only, those who purchase select Samsung goods will get a whole year of Netflix absolutely free — as well as access to the company’s own Milk Music streaming service.

If you treated yourself to a 4K television in the Black Friday sales, you’re going to love Amazon’s latest Instant Video update, because the retail giant is now showing movies and TV shows in Ultra HD. Not only can you buy and rent 4K content, but you’ll also be able to stream it as part of your Prime subscription — but only if you live in the U.S.

Apple’s latest iPhones have been shipping for a few weeks now, but many have been waiting for Google to show its hand before deciding what will be their new smartphone for the next two years. So how does the new Nexus 6 compare to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and more importantly, which is most worthy of your hard-earned cash?

Our in-depth comparison below will help you decide.

Panasonic today announced its impressive new Android-powered Lumix CM1 smartphone with a built-in 1-inch camera sensor and Leica lens. It’s the kind of sensor found inside dedicated point-and-shoots like Sony’s incredible RX100, and it’s going to deliver pictures you probably thought you’d never take on a smartphone.


One of the highlights of the LG G3 is that its impressive 13-megapixel camera has the ability to record super sharp 4K video, but it’s somewhat spoiled by LG’s aggressive post-processing. As is often the case, however, third-party developers have devised a tweak that makes 4K video recording even better.

It also boosts 1080p recording from 30 frames-per-second to 60 frames-per-second — but you’ll need root access to install it.
