Welcome To The Smartphone Squeeze: HTC Launches The U11

The history of HTC flagships has been a tale of ups and downs. In all the reviews of smartphones we’ve ever done at AnandTech, only two have ever held an AnandTech Gold Award: the iPhone 6S and the HTC M7. At the time, the M7 offered a great camera and specifications for its price, and ever since we’ve been waiting for HTC to return to former glory.

Samsung email with icloud.com can't delete messages.

I'm scratching my head over this one. My fiancé changed over from an iPhone to a Samsung Galaxy S7 about 6 months ago but kept her icloud.com email address. Lately the Samsung email app and the gmail app can't delete messages off her icloud.com. If she uses the icloud.com off her PC it works. I checked the SSL setup of the Android port settings, etc. and it's the same as Apple recommends.

If anybody here is looking for mobile internet, AT&T recently announced that you can get the ZTE Mobely and get unlimited data in their vehicle for $20.00 per month.

GPS on an iPad Pro

I have been given an iPad Pro (9.7" size) by my employer as a Service Anniversary Award. It has a GPS receiver and WiFi capability, but no internal phone. I love the hi-res screen, which started me thinking about the possibility of using the iPad Pro for vehicle navigation.

Has anyone any experience using an iPad like this for navigation?
