Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) and A5 (2016) up for sale in China
 
01:26
Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) and A5 (2016) up for sale in China The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) and Galaxy A5 (2016) are now available for purchase in China, a couple of weeks ahead of what their name suggests. The two smartphones have popped up on Samsung's local website with a "Buy now" button underneath, redirecting you to physical stores throughout the country. The smartphones are priced at CNY 2,699 ($420) for the 5.5-inch A7 (2016) and CNY 2,398 ($370) for the A5 (2016). All four color options of the two models seem to be available, including the standard white and black, but also fancier gold and pink (or rose gold, if you prefer) variants. There's still no word on the smallest sibling though, the Galaxy A3 (2016). Meanwhile in Europe the Galaxy A5 (2016) and the A3 (2016) aren't expected until January 8, at least in the Netherlands, and that would mean no holiday Galaxy A's for you. The A5 (2016) is noticeably more expensive in Europe, listed at €429, and the A3 (2016) will go for a hundred less, though these may be preliminary prices.

Buy 1 smartphone, get 1 free from AT&T, only not all that simple
 
01:25
AT&T is offering a holiday deal, where you can get two smartphones for the price of one. That does sound too good to be true, and it's mostly because it is, though there likely are those that can take advantage. The offer extends to popular models like the Samsung Galaxy S6, as well as the carrier exclusive Galaxy S6 active, but also the current iPhone 6s. For a precise list of participating models, you'd best contact AT&T, but from what we gather, you can't pick up one iPhone and one Samsung, the two smartphones need to be the same brand. Either way, the terms and conditions are pretty complex, but the essence is that both devices need to be on a Next 24 plan upwards of $70/month (which in fact means a 30-month subscription). Then after three bills, AT&T will start waiving the monthly payments for the phone for the next 30 months for a total of $650 (or $21.67/month). The free device needs to be a new line, and the other one can be a new line or an upgrade.

YU Yuphoria Review
 
01:49
The Yuphoria is the second device to be launched in India by YU, a division of Micromax made in collaboration with Cyanogen Inc. Yuphoria is an entry level smartphone, priced even lower than the Yureka that came before it. Despite the entry level pricing, the Yuphoria does pack in a lot of features, including a metal body, 720p display, Snapdragon 410 processor, 2GB RAM, and 8 megapixel camera, not to mention Cyanogen OS 12 that comes out of the box. But all of that’s on paper. Let’s see what it’s like in the real world. Packaging The Yuphoria comes in a simple brown box that contains the phone, a charger rated at 5V/1.5A, a USB cable, the battery, screen protector, cleaning cloth, and a headset that looks remarkably similar to the Apple EarPods. The phone supports QuickCharge 1.0 although the charger doesn’t exactly specify whether it supports the feature. Design and Build One of the major features of the Yuphoria is the metal body. The phone has a stainless steel frame around the sides but with a plastic back cover. The design of the phone looks remarkably similar to the Lumia 925 and to some extent, the Lumia 830. On the front of the phone is the display under Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Above it is the front facing camera and earpiece. The Yuphoria does not have a notification LED. Also, unlike the Yureka, there are no physical navigation controls here. On the right side are the volume control buttons with the power button in the center. The buttons are located within reach but it takes getting used to to the position of the power button and you have to run your thumb around a bit before location it without looking at it. On the top is the headphone jack. On the bottom is the microUSB port. On the back of the phone is the 8 megapixel camera lens with an LED flash and near the bottom is the single loudspeaker. The back cover is removable and underneath is the 2230 mAh removable battery, two micro SIM card slots and one microSD card slot. The build quality of the phone is shoddy at best. The metal feels smooth with a good texture but that’s pretty much the only good part. The back cover feels cheap and does not fit the phone properly, leaving gaps around the corners. It also does not lie flat on the back and is slightly raised, so you feel the edges around the sides. The plastic bits around the ports and the camera lens look exceptionally cheap and tacky. Even the glossy volume buttons look bad. The printed logo on the back also makes it look like a cheap knockoff rather than the original. So while it’s commendable that YU decided to offer metal body at this price, the rest of the build quality, fit and finish, and attention to detail leaves a lot to be desired.

New update rolling out to Samsung Z3
 
01:01
New update rolling out to Samsung Z3 A few weeks after receiving its first update, the Tizen-powered Samsung Z3 smartphone - which was launched last month with 5-inch 720p Super AMOLED screen and a quad-core 1.3GHz processor- is getting another software update. Weighing in at around 600MB, the update (which you can fetch through Samsung Smart Switch as it doesn't seem to be rolling OTA currently) doesn't bring any major changes - a few new icons have been added and there seems to be some change in the screen brightness (see the right hand portion of the image above). For those who aren't in the know, the Z3 is the South Korean company's second smartphone running its home grown Tizen OS. The first one - dubbed Z1 - was launched back in January this year, and has been quite a success for the company. A recent report from market research firm Strategy Analytics revealed that Tizen has now overtaken BlackBerry OS to become the fourth largest mobile operating system in the world.

Features like Ultra Data Saving and S Bike mode are supported. As for price, the Galaxy J Max carries a tag of INR 13,400, which translates to around $200. Available in black and gold color options, it will be available for purchase in India (both online and offline) sometime towards the end of this month.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Specs Leaked In Detail: Octa-core Kryo280 architecture on a 10nm process! Qualcomm has officially confirmed that it will reveal the brand new Snapdragon 835 chipset in detail at the upcoming CES event in Las Vegas. But someone decided to leak the details of the chip a couple of days in advance. qualcomm Snapdragon 835 According to the new set of leaked images, the Snapdragon 835 will use a Kryo280 octa-core architecture. The company claims the 280 is its most efficient architecture till date, which really sounds exciting. Further, thanks to the improved efficiency, the Snapdragon 835 boasts of 50% power reduction as compared to the old Snapdragon 801 chip. This means in 2017, we will have not only powerful smartphones but also phones which will last longer than previous generation models. qualcomm Snapdragon 835 So, there will be two sets of cores in this architecture — 4 x performance cores @ 2.45GHz and 4 x efficiency cores @ 1.9GHz. The Snapdragon 835 also comes with a faster Adreno 540 GPU with support for DX12, OpenGL, ES and Vulkan applications. Other noted features of the new chip include Hexagon 690 DSP, Spectra 180 and the fast X16 LTE modem. The processor also comes with support for Qualcomm Haven Security (full biometric suite). qualcomm-snapdragon-835-3-1000x564qualcomm-snapdragon-835-4-1000x564 qualcomm-snapdragon-835-2-1000x564 Since the SD835 is based on 10nm process, its smaller and much more compact than Snapdragon 820. This will translate into thinner and smaller smartphones, with more room for other components like battery. Overall, the Snapdragon 835 processor seems to be a worthy update to the powerful SD821. Note that these are just leaked images which haven’t been confirmed by the company yet. But the details are in line with what we expected from the chip

Nokia unveils two feature phones: 150 and 150 Dual SIM
 
01:14
Nokia unveils two feature phones: 150 and 150 Dual SIM And just like that HMD Global unveiled the first Nokia phones in the post-Microsoft era. Calm down, the Nokia 150 and Nokia 150 Dual SIM are just feature phones, the kind of which there are oh so many. Both will cost around $26/€25 (before taxes and subsidies) and are pretty much a a follow-up to the Nokia 215 and others. This means MP3 and FM radio, Bluetooth with SLAM (a substitute for NFC) and stellar battery life - 22 hours of talk time and up to 31 days of standby. Aside from audio, the two phones come with games for entertainment - Snake Xenzia is preloaded, plus a “try and buy” version of Nitro Racing. There’s a camera with flash too, but at VGA resolution it’s going to see very limited use. The Nokia 150 and 150 are launching in Q1 2017 in Europe, APAC and IMEA. Both are limited to dual-band 2.5G (900/1800MHz)

LG V10 arrives in South Korea first, available tomorrow for $693
 
01:46
After many leaks and rumors, LG finally made the V10 official at the beginning of this month, and now it's almost ready to become available. The smartphone with two screens and two front-facing cameras will go on sale in LG's native South Korea first, starting tomorrow. It will be priced at KRW 799,700, which right now translates into $693 or €616. That makes it a premium offering when it comes to price, but given how things work in the mobile world we wouldn't be surprised if it was going to be slightly cheaper in the US. Speaking of which, there's still no telling when the V10 will arrive in any market outside of South Korea. In LG's home country there will be a version of the V10 on offer from each of the three carriers over there. And if you buy one before October 31, you'll get some freebies such as a second battery and a battery charger. Perhaps this promotion will make its way to other countries too when the V10 launches. The LG V10 has a 5.7-inch QHD touchscreen, a 2.1-inch 160x1,040 secondary display, a 16 MP main camera with OIS, laser autofocus, and LED flash, two 5 MP cameras for selfies, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 808 at the helm, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, and a 3,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

Twitter is reportedly working on a new tweetstorm feature
 
01:42
Twitter is reportedly working on a new tweetstorm feature Do you get mad? Do you use Twitter to voice your opinion on politics, technology, or how Disney still hasn’t released an official trailer for The Last Jedi? If so, we’ve got some good news — you might soon be able to publish your very own tweetstorm all at once. According to screenshots given to Matt Navarra, director of Social Media at The Next Web, Twitter is working on a feature that will allow you to compose multiple threaded Tweets (aka tweetstorm) at one time and publish them all at once. Check out the screenshots below to see the new feature in action: TechCrunch says the new tweetstorming feature isn’t being publicly tested at this time. Because of this, it’s unclear as to when Twitter will roll this feature out to everyone. We’ll of course keep you updated if we hear anything, though the social media giant declined to comment to both TechCrunch and Recode. Sometimes the 140 character limit just isn’t enough to get all of your thoughts out, which is why threaded Tweets are a thing. However, composing multiple tweets, one right after the other, can be time consuming, and they can be easy to mess up. Hopefully this feature will begin rolling out sooner rather than later.

Android O will be the last major update to hit the OnePlus 3 and 3T
 
01:30
OnePlus' track record with software support for its devices has been decent for some products, and very bad for others (remember the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X?). And with the release of the OnePlus 5 it's understandable that owners of last year's flagships, the OnePlus 3 and 3T, have gotten a bit antsy not knowing exactly what to expect from this point forward. So today the Chinese company's Head of Product, Oliver Z., has decided to answer a few questions on the matter. He has thus revealed that Android O will be the last major update headed to the OnePlus 3 and 3T, with security patches and individual app updates coming "for the foreseeable future". After the 3 and 3T get the O update, the Open Beta Program will be "moving" to the OnePlus 5. Speaking about the next updates for the 3/3T, Oliver mentioned that the August security patches are going to be out "soon", while the OxygenOS 4.5 build will come "in the next 1-2 months". This means the 3/3T will catch up with the 5 in terms of OxygenOS version, but some features from the newer handset will not be making the transition. Reading Mode, off-screen gestures, and DCI-P3 screen calibration are not going to be implemented in the 3/3T because of "hardware differences".

Moto M shows up at TENAA with 5.5" screen, metal body, rear fingerprint scanner
 
01:56
Mere hours ago we reported on a rumor claiming that Lenovo is working on a new Moto-branded handset that will have a rear fingerprint scanner. And now exactly such a device has been spotted at TENAA, the Chinese agency akin to the US FCC. However, the Moto M has been claimed to sport the model number XT1663 (and in fact this phone has been caught in a benchmark database too a while back). The smartphone seen at TENAA (and pictured below for your viewing pleasure) is the XT1662. So this may be another handset entirely, perhaps the Moto M Plus. Or maybe this is the Moto M. Then again, it could be launched with any other branding. At this point, it's just not 100% certain what it will be called. On the other hand, what is obvious from TENAA's images is that we're dealing with a phone with a full body metal construction, and a slightly rounded back reminiscent of older Motorola devices. As for specs, TENAA hasn't revealed much yet. The XT1662 has a 5.5-inch display, a 3,000 mAh battery, 4G LTE support, and it runs Android obviously (but the exact version isn't mentioned). Its dimensions are 151 x 75 x 8 mm. If it is in any way related to the XT1663, then it might also get the MediaTek MT6750 chipset (with a 1.9 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU), 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 16 MP main camera, an 8 MP selfie shooter, and Marshmallow on board. All this said, do keep in mind that these two could end up being completely different devices.

10.2-inch Google Pixel C Android tablet in the works, rumor says
 
01:03
Tomorrow Google has a pretty big event planned, during which the LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P will become official. A new Chromecast may be outed too, along with a new family plan for the Play Music All Access streaming service. But that may not be all Google's got in store for us. A new rumor says we might see a new tablet getting revealed as well. Intriguingly though, this will not be Nexus-branded. Even if it doesn't get showcase10.2-inch Google Pixel C Android tablet in the works, rumor saysd tomorrow, this is apparently in the works and will be released sometime in November. It will be called Pixel C. Google will interestingly be using the brand it's so far reserved for high-end Chromebooks with premium materials. That said, the Pixel C tablet will run Android, not Chrome OS.

iPhone 7 Plus teardown shows 2900mAh battery
 
01:15
The iPhone 7 Plus is just hitting the stores and iFixit have wasted no time tearing it down. The iPhone 7 Plus teardown shows a number of interesting things. Firstly, the battery is 2,900mAh Li-Ion (3.82V, 11.10Whr), and not 2,675mAh, as previously reported. The iPhone 6s Plus has a 2,750mAh battery. Furthermore, only the right speaker grille at the bottom of the phone actually has a speaker behind it. The one on the left is only for balancing the design, but akin to the iPhone 6s Plus has a secondary. The removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack is cited by Apple to tremendously help with the task of making space for additional tech inside. Furthermore, iFixit reveals that the adhesive strip used to seal the iPhone 7 Plus is considerably stronger than what's found on the iPhone 6s Plus.

HDR videos in YouTube mobile app now capped at 1080p
 
01:25
HDR videos in YouTube mobile app now capped at 1080p Google has made a change to the resolution options in the YouTube mobile app for HDR videos. The resolution now maxes out at 1080p, regardless of the display of your phone. Resolution options on the Galaxy Note8 Previously, the resolution options went all the way up to 4K, provided you had a Sony Xperia XZ Premium. For most other flagship it was going up to 1440p. The limit is likely being put because of how bad HDR video performance is in the YouTube app. Even on flagship devices, including Google's own Pixel 2, playing HDR videos over 720p caused massive frame drops and a generally unusable experience. The YouTube app is alone in this, as other apps with HDR support, such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, have no issues with HDR videos up to 4K resolution.

Part of Vertu's Signature series, the Signature Cobra has 439 rubies shaped in the form of an incredibly gaudy looking cobra that just chills on the front of the phone. The eyes are made out of emerald and there is also some gold and crystal thrown in there for good measure. The phone has been designed by French jewelry house Boucheron. As if that wasn't enough, only eight of these phones will be made and each one will be delivered to you via helicopter. The Vertu Signature Cobra is launched in China for CNY 2.47 million. Only one of the eight units will be sold in China.

Huawei P10 prototype and specs spotted online
 
01:26
The Huawei P9 has been enjoying quite a lot of popularity, with sales already exceeding the 9 million mark. Naturally, we can't wait to see what the Chinese OEM has planned for its successor. The device in question will likely bear the logical P10 moniker and was spotted on Chinese social network Weibo today in the flesh. The pair of shots of what appears to be an early prototype prove an ongoing hunch, that Huawei will go for a front-mounted fingerprint reader this time around. That definitely seems to be the case. We are also happy to see that the signature dual-camera setup of the P9 appears to be carried over. Powered by Leica tech, it combines a color and a monochrome shooter for some interesting effects and better overall low-light performance. Luckily enough, today's leak also comes complete with a set of suggested hardware specs for the Huawei P10. The phone will likely have a 5.5-inch panel, with QHD resolution. Under the hood, we expect to see the company's own Kirin 960 SoC, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of on-board storage. A higher tier model with a 6GB, plus 128GB setup is also suggested.

Imoo GET certified by TENAA: 5.5" FullHD AMOLED, octa-core CPU and an odd camera
 
01:34
Coming from the parent company behind vivo, Oppo, and OnePlus, the imoo brand has had its first handset certified by the Chinese telecom regulator TENAA. The imoo GET actually appears to be a pretty capable midranger, and comes with a twist in the camera department. The list of specs starts off with a 5.5-inch FullHD AMOLED display. Running things is a 2GHz octa-core CPU inside what is reportedly a Mediatek Helio P10 chipset. There's 3GB of RAM on board and 32GB of storage, but the field for expansion has been left blank in the specsheet, so we can't know for sure. The imoo GET measures 158 x 78 x 7mm and weighs 154g, while packing a 2,930mAh battery. Android version is 6.0 Marshmallow, but with ample customizations to make the phone student-friendly. Now, we're not entirely sure what it does, but the video below gives a general idea. There's also some camera trickery going on, and the window next to the proper 13MP main module could hide a laser autofocus sensor, but also possibly a secondary camera. Whatever the case, the imoo GET should become official in the coming weeks, putting an end to all speculations.

OnePlus has been collecting very specific usage data
 
03:23
OnePlus has been collecting very specific usage data Chris D Moore has released a comprehensive post that details his own discoveries. First of all, this was all demonstrated with Moore’s OnePlus 2. So we don’t currently know if the same thing is occurring in the more current OnePlus 3T or OnePlus 5 models. I’m sure we’ll find out soon. (Update: the statement below pretty much affirms that all OnePlus models are collecting usage data) Moore first discovered this when he set up a security tool on his OnePlus 2, but to his surprise, the tool found traffic requests to open.oneplus.net, which directed traffic to a US-based Amazon AWS server. Anyway, without getting too in depth, Moore found out more of what was being sent to this domain: IMEI number, MAC addresses, mobile network names, Wi-Fi SSIDs, and the phone’s serial number. He even discovered that time stamps were signaling when apps were opened and closed - stamped with the serial number of his device. This is eerily too much information to be collecting, particularly when it can be traced back to a phone’s serial number. Back in January, he asked OnePlus support how to disable the data collection, to which OnePlus gave unproductive answers like wiping the cache and performing a factory reset. That’s when another user on Twitter suggested he dig around on the OnePlus forums to see what he could find. After deeper investigation, the culprit responsible for data collection is a system app called “OnePlus System Service”. The app can’t be turned off since it is part of the System, but it can be manually disabled every time the phone is restarted.

EXCLUSIVE: Samsung Galaxy S7 to come in three sizes, 5.1'', 5.5'' and 6''
 
01:30
EXCLUSIVE: Samsung Galaxy S7 to come in three sizes, 5.1'', 5.5'' and 6'' Okay, so there has been a miscommunication. We talked some more with our contacts over at ITSKINS and asked them to measure the screens of the Galaxy S7 family to try and cut through the multiple conflicting rumors. 5.7-inch screen? 5.5-inch? 6-inch? Curved, not curved? From the info our contacts have, it turns out that Samsung will simplify the lineup instead of complicating it with small/big + curved/flat choices. The base Samsung Galaxy S7 will have a flat 5.1" screen, no curved option. The Galaxy S7 edge will have a bigger 5.5" screen and there won't be a flat-screened S7 of that size. The big-screened device, the Galaxy S7+, will have a 6" screen and will be the only one to have two screen options. Unless an additional version is planned (one for which ITSKINS doesn’t have any info), then your main choice will be screen size – small, medium, large. The medium and large versions will come with a curved screen so it will target style-conscious consumers. Is this lineup better? Would you have wanted another 5.1" Galaxy S edge model? If you did, well nothing is set in stone yet but chances are you'll be disappointed.

WhatsApp Beta for Windows Phone includes new features Believe it or not, there is an update for the WhatsApp Beta for Windows Phone. The new version is 2.18.30. Among the new features is Live Location. This allows you to share your location with others for a set period of time. To use this feature, go to chat and tap on Location.

Another new feature found in the WhatsApp Beta for Windows Phone adds a search function in Group Info. With this new capability, users can find group members instantly. You can also delete group messages that you've sent, as long as it's done within 68 minutes and 16 seconds from the time the message was originally disseminated. Lastly, Download My Data creates a report of the data in your WhatsApp account. You can request to download the report, which takes 20-days. After you download the report (which must be within 30-days after it is ready), it will be removed from the WhatsApp server.

LG Optimus Zone 3 leaks out on its way to Verizon
 
01:06
Verizon is getting ready to launch a new affordable smartphone from LG. The Optimus Zone 3 has been given the leaked press render treatment by none other than @evleaks today. The images show a 4G LTE capable device sporting software-rendered on-screen Android navigation buttons - not something often seen in this price range. The Optimus Zone 3 will be offered with prepaid plans from the carrier, so it's bound to be very cheap. Unfortunately no specs have accompanied the leaked renders. However, based on what the Optimus Zone 2 from 2014 was packing, you shouldn't expect much. The Optimus Zone 3's predecessor had a 3.5-inch touchscreen, a 3 MP camera, and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 200 at the helm, with just 512MB of RAM and a 1,700 mAh battery. Hopefully the new iteration will at least sport a 4" display and 1GB of RAM.

Samsung launches new VR display with 3.5x more pixels than competitors
 
01:06
Samsung launches new VR display with 3.5x more pixels than competitors . The Display Week 2017 conference took place at the end of May, and some interesting info surfaced. Samsung showcased a new ultra-high resolution display for VR headsets, having around 3.5 times more pixels than the Oculus and Vive in a 3.5” display. The screen shown at the event had 2024 x 2200 pixel resolution with resulting density of 858 ppi. This is twice the pixel density of current devices. Other specs of the new display include 90Hz refresh rate and 100 nits brightness to ease people who feel sick or dizzy after using the VR headsets currently on the market. Samsung did not reveal if the display would be used in its own standalone VR headset or will sell the screen to other manufacturers. Currently, Samsung provides the displays both for the Vive and the Rift - they use two individual screens with 1080 x 1200 pixels per ey

Samsung to bring back the microSD slot with the S6 Active

Samsung Galaxy S6 turned out not the flagship many was hoping for. It ditched the SD expansion slot the water protection and removable battery for good, in favor of refined design and improved user experience. Now that those features are a lost cause for the Samsung Galaxy S6, many are hoping Samsung would reconsider for the upcoming Galaxy S6 Active edition of the flagship. A reddit user spent some quality time with a Samsung rep, who shed some light on company's plans for future devices and past decisions. First, let's check out what's coming in the Galaxy S6 Active. Reportedly the device will keep the Galaxy S6 specs, but will lack fingerprint scanner and heart-rate monitor. Instead it will come with front physical keys and will look a lot like the recently announced Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3. The highlights of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active will be, of course, the water and dust protection plus Samsung promises to keep the microSD card slot and the removable battery. Currently Samsung has no plans for giving up on the memory expansions slots in the rugged smartphones. The Galaxy S6 Active should be launched in mid-summer this year, but the pricing is yet to be announced. The reddit user garshol also asked the Samsung's rep about the decision to cut off the water-proofing and the SD slot. Apparently Samsung did a study among the users about the water protection and they concluded the people prefer the freedom from port covers in favor of water endurance. The microSD slot on the other hand was removed in order to fit more technology on its place and for a better and more refined design.

Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design Vs Gionee M2017: Which Luxury Phone is Worth Your Money?
 
05:42
Planning to get a new phone and don’t want to settle for any of the ”cheap phones” in the market like the OnePlus 3T, the Samsung S7 Edge, or even the Google Pixel because any phone less than $1000 is ”cheap” right? Then you might want to narrow down your options to the Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design or Gionee M2017. We want to help you spend your money decide which one of these two phones is worth your hard-earned money. Display We know you’ve got a fat account, so a phone with a large display is what you need to show the world that you like big things. The Mate 9 Porsche Design has a 5.5-inch 2K AMOLED display which is big enough but if you want bigger, the Gionee M2017 take the display size up to 5.7-inches with the same display type and resolution. Both displays are curved on both sides and should let you see your account balance in bright and vivid colors. RAM, ROM, and Processor The Gionee M2017 and Mate 9 Porsche Design both come with 6GB of RAM which is the highest you can get on any phone right now. The difference is in the storage option. Gionee let’s you choose either a 128GB model or a 256GB model, but Huawei on the other hand says its 256GB or nothing. But you want to know what we think? Go big or go home because 128GB is for cheapskates. The processor is another important specification that we feel you should consider. The Gionee M2017 sports Qualcomm’s new mid-range king, the Snapdragon 653. This chip is synonymous to the Snapdragon 652 just the way the Snapdragon 821 is to the Snapdragon 820. The octa-core processor clocked at 1.95GHz should handle most tasks you throw at it but to be honest, it can’t hold a candle to the Kirin 960 present in the Mate 9. The Kirin 960 apart from having a higher clock speed (2.4GHz) also uses the newer Cortex-A73 CPU core which is more powerful than the Cortex-A72 present in the Gionee. Camera and Battery We know you have the money and we believe you should flaunt it. You need to show your friends that your pre-ordered Faraday Future SUV has arrived and you need a good camera that captures the beauty. Both phones have dual cameras but right now Huawei seems to be the boss when it comes to dual camera phones. The Mate 9 Porsche Design sports a 20MP+12MP combo at the back of the device. The sensors are made in collaboration with German camera manufacturer, Leica. The setup has got OIS, 2x optical zoom, and laser autofocus. Up front is an 8MP shooter for selfies. You can check out camera samples here. The Gionee M2017 uses a combination of a 12MP and 13MP sensor with 2x optical zoom and you also get an 8MP sensor up front for selfies. The Gionee M2017 just launched a few days ago and there are no sample pictures yet but we doubt if it can measure up to that of the Mate 9. The M2017 is the champ here even before the fight starts. It packs a 7000mAh battery which dwarfs the 4000mAh battery inside the Huawei. Gionee’s phone has Quick charge 3.0 support while Huawei has equipped the Mate 9 Porsche Design with its own Supercharge feature. Design and Extra Features They are both luxury phones and their appearance reflects that. The Gionee sports a mixture of glass, aluminium and leather. The curved display meets the metal frame on one side and the leather back does the same on the other. You get calfskin leather for the 128GB model and crocodile leather for the 256GB version. The Mate 9 Porsche Design on the other hand is a beauty too. It shares design similarities to the Galaxy Note 7 of blessed memory which was known for its stunning looks. There is no leather on the back but the matte black coating looks really nice on it. The Gionee M2017 has a security chip that encrypts data but lacks NFC. There is a fingerprint scanner up front but there is no earphone jack. It also comes with Amigo OS 3.5 based on Android 6.0. The Mate 9 Porsche Edition on the other hand doesn’t have a security chip but has NFC and an IR blaster. It ships with Android 7.0 Nougat, has its fingerprint scanner in front, and an audio jack at the bottom. READ MORE: Battle for Mid-Range: Meizu M5 Note vs Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Price The Huawei Mate 9 is priced at around $1547 while the Gionee M2017 is priced at $1007 for the 128GB model and $2446 for the 256GB model. It’s a no brainer really. The Huawei Mate 9 has a more powerful processor, latest Android OS, better cameras definitely, comes with NFC, an IR blaster and an audio jack. It also offers the same storage amount as the Gionee M2017 256GB model at almost $900 less.

Next Samsung Galaxy Note phone to pack in LG-made battery
 
00:54
Next Samsung Galaxy Note phone to pack in LG-made battery According to a new report out of Korea, Samsung is considering sourcing batteries from LG Chem (the battery manufacturing arm of LG) for its Galaxy Note8 smartphone as well as other phones launching thereafter. Talks are on, and nothing is finalized yet, the report says, but adds that a deal seems likely. If the deal goes through, the Galaxy Note8 will become the first Samsung phone to pack in an LG-made battery. Aside from the yet-to-be-finalized LG Chem, the list of Samsung's battery suppliers currently includes Samsung SDI and China’s ATL. It's worth mentioning that the ill-fated Galaxy Note7 contained batteries from both these suppliers, and both variants were found problematic.

Nexus 6P and 5X users reporting in-car Bluetooth issues with Android 7.1.1 updat
 
00:56
Nexus 6P and 5X users reporting in-car Bluetooth issues with Android 7.1.1 update Looks like the version 7.1.1 of Android Nougat OS has some issues with in-car Bluetooth. A quick look at Google's product forums reveals that users of the Huawei Nexus 6P and LG Nexus 5X have been reporting this issue since the updated started rolling. After installing the Android 7.1.1 update, users say their devices are not able to connect to their in-car Bluetooth systems. And even if they connect - which happens with some - placing/taking hands-free calls doesn't work. The issue was first reported back in October last year, when Android 7.1.1 was under beta testing, and looking at some of the latest comments in the thread, it's clear that Google is yet to come up with a fix.

Weekly poll results: don't you dare touch the headphone jack, Samsung
 
00:59
Weekly poll results: don't you dare touch the headphone jack, Samsung The message is resoundingly clear - a Samsung Galaxy S8 without a 3.5mm headphone jack is going to be met with great resistance from fans. Almost half of voters in our poll picked this option, indicating that it’s a deal-breaker. Many brought up a removable battery, but this particular ship seems to have sailed. The fate of the Home button, however, is yet to be decided and a quarter of voters also picked this as a must-have. The fingerprint reader was almost a bigger concern than the button itself - where will it be, how will it work and so on. The lack of a dual-camera or a design that removes bezels too aggressively proved to be minor concerns. Many point out that a single camera can perform just as well as a dual-camera (the low-light performance of the Pixel phones is a good example

Samsung Z2, Galaxy C9 and Galaxy J7 Prime spotted online
 
02:27
It's a good days for those hunting Samsung leaks - no less then three unannounced devices made the rounds online. Samsung Z2 Samsung is going to unveil the Tizen-powered Z2 tomorrow in India, but there are already a bunch of official images today. The entry-level Samsung Z2 is rumored to feature a 3.97" WVGA display and utilize a quad-core 1.5GHz processor with 1GB of RAM. The rest of the specs include a 5MP main camera, a VGA selfie one, 8GB expandable storage, and a 1,500 mAh battery. The Z2 is expected to launch in quite a few markets worldwide, while its new Tizen OS 2.4 should offer My Money Transfer exclusive app and Ultra Data Saving Mode. Samsung Galaxy C9 We already knew Samsung is working on a Galaxy C9, which should make the C series complete. Naturally, it will be the biggest among its siblings with a 5.7" 1080p display. Now we have another confirmation of the Galaxy C9 existence - the phone was listed in Zauba (India's import tracking authority). There are no specs mentioned but the screen size. We guess the announcement should be close now that Samsung is sending prototypes to different countries. Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime We already saw a Galaxy J Prime smartphone leak earlier today, but we can now confirm it will be officially called Galaxy J7 Prime. The latest images fully reveal its design, features, and name. The phone was previously uploaded on TENAA and was considered as Galaxy On7 (2016). The J7 Prime seems to be an upgrade over the J7 (2016) released last spring. The phone packs a 5.5" sAMOLED 1080p display and runs on the Exynos 7870 with an octa-core CPU and 3GB of RAM. There is 32GB storage, a 13MP f/1.9 main camera and an 8MP selfie snapper. The J7 Prime will run on Android Marshmallow with TouchWiz and launch in Black and Gold flavors.

Galaxy S8 might have of 6GB of RAM, 256GB of storage
 
01:44
Galaxy S8 might have of 6GB of RAM, 256GB of storage With the Note7’s discontinuation, Samsung will be on everyone’s watch with high expectations of the company’s next flagship device: the Samsung Galaxy S8. And although we haven’t seen any leaks of the hardware, the rumor mill has been churning out lots of news with no signs of slowing down any time soon. Some new rumors deciphered by TechTastic on Weibo suggest that the Galaxy S8 will feature a 256GB storage option. And it’s not yet known if this is intended to be a standard size or larger storage option. The S8 is also rumored to come with 6GB of RAM, a good decision considering even the Galaxy S7 suffered from TouchWiz jank every now and then. If we recall, the Galaxy Note7 was expected to come out with 6GB of RAM as well, so when the company announced that it would have the same internals as the Galaxy S7 from earlier in the year, some were surprised. So now we expect the Galaxy S8 to have a slick design and improved camera as mentioned by Samsung, an optical fingerprint scanner embedded under the screen, a dual camera setup on the larger model, a pressure sensitive display which is said to replace the capacitive keys and physical home button altogether, as well as an iris scanner. If Samsung can figure out all of the above and keep it priced like the were, Samsung’s offerings could be unstoppable. Oh, and improved quality control goes without saying, Samsung cannot afford another Note7 fiasco.

The new CAT S60: world's first smartphone with built-in thermal camera
 
02:08
The new CAT S60 is more than a smartphone - it's a professional tool. It's the first smartphone to feature an integrated thermal camera. It can measure the temperature of objects from 15m-30m (50ft-100ft) away and can even see through smoke. It can, for example, be used by firefighters to look for people in a smoke-filled building or just a contractor to check your insulation. The thermal camera is courtesy of Flir and shows 640 x 480px thermal video. That's actually pretty good, the Seek Thermal only manages 206 x 156px. Anyway, the CAT S60 goes beyond casual smartphone toughness. If you batten down the hatches (closing the mouth and earpieces with the yellow covers), it can go under 5m of water. Otherwise, the limit is 2m. CAT dropped the phone 26 times from 1.8m (6ft) to make sure it survives hard hits. The display is covered with 1mm Gorilla Glass 4 (normal phones get 0.4mm) and very bright - 540nits. The touchscreen works with gloves, of course. You also get a beefy 3,800mAh battery to last you a long day at work and a 105dB loudspeaker. The rest of the CAT S60 put it in the mid-range - 4.7" 720p screen, Snapdragon 617 with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage. The phone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and offers 4G LTE connectivity. There's also a 13MP main camera, 5MP selfie cam. The CAT S60 will be shown off at the MWC and will retail later this year for $600/€650. Keep in mind that a Flir One (a smartphone add-on thermal camera) alone costs $250.

Measuring the bezels of the iPhone X - can Apple win the bezel-less war?
 
02:59
Measuring the bezels of the iPhone X - can Apple win the bezel-less war? “Our vision has always been to create an iPhone that is entirely screen” says Apple about the iPhone X. An admirable goal, though Apple is hardly a pioneer here – Sharp went “bezel-less” years ago, Xiaomi pushed the concept into the public consciousness. Still, you can’t deny the X is a massive improvement over all iPhones dating back to the original. We decided to measure Apple’s achievement – how thin are those bezels? Is it a huge improvement over the iPhone 8 Plus? Obviously yes for the top and bottom bezels, but we think those are of secondary importance. It’s the side bezels that matter – with today’s large screens, thick side bezels can make the phone so wide as to be impossible to hold comfortably. We measured the side bezels of the iPhone X at 4.13mm. That’s almost a full millimeter thinner than the iPhone 8 Plus bezels (and don’t forget any saving here counts twice). It’s not as thin as it could have been though, the two Androids we used as control are both comfortably under 4mm. Perhaps Apple didn’t want to go too thin – the iPads have great palm rejection, but even then you don’t want accidental touches. As you may have noticed, we didn’t include the Galaxy flagships as their curved screens are difficult to measure but also exacerbate the accidental touch issue. Anyway, if you look closely, you’ll see that the bottom bezel is slightly thinner than the side bezels. So Apple could have gone thinner but chose not to for one reason or the other. side (mm) top (mm) bottom (mm) iPhone X 4.13 8.93 3.87 iPhone 8 Plus 5.03 19.44 19.29 LG V30 3.67 7.73 7.27 Mi Mix 2 3.72 4.52 10.57 Note that the “top” bezel includes the notch with the TrueDepth camera. It’s impressive that this notch is smaller than the bottom bezel of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, even though it contains a minified Kinect. Also, it’s only a millimeter more than the top bezel on the LG V30, despite housing one of the stereo speakers. If you want to imagine a V30 with stereo speakers, you can look at the Pixel 2 XL. In short, Apple’s engineers deserves kudos – their product strikes a great balance between minimal dead space and ergonomics

The nubia Z17 mini didn't get unveiled last week despite many rumors claiming it would be the star of the March 21 event for ZTE's sub-brand. On that occasion, the Chinese company outed the nubia M2, M2 Lite, and N2 instead. However the nubia Z17 mini could still be in the works. Today ZTE sent out invites for yet another nubia event, this one taking place on April 6. The image accompanying the invite (which you can see on the left) has a design that strongly hints at a dual rear camera system for the handset that will become official next month.

Samsung teases Galaxy S6 edge Iron Man edition

The second Avengers movie - Age of Ultron - is out and Samsung will be soon launching a special edition of the Galaxy S6 edge to honor it. The limited model was teased on Twitter and will be apparently dedicated to Iron Man. This isn’t the first collaboration between Samsung and Marvel. Previously we got limited editions Avengers cases with the Galaxy Note 4, while recently Samsung launched cool Avengers TouchWiz themes. We also got some Avengers Galaxy S6 promos last month. Now it seems Samsung will be bringing the Avengers theme to a whole new level with dedicated editions of its flagships. Hopefully the manufacturer doesn't stop at Iron Man's editions, as some of the users out there will surely side with Captain America during the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie.

Samsung removes its logo from Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in Japan

Samsung has taken down its corporate logo from its recently launched Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones in Japan. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge go on sale in Japan on April 23. Both the flagship phones will not have Samsung’s logo on the devices and instead will be co-marketed with carrier partners as the ‘Docomo Galaxy’ and ‘au Galaxy’. The company did not give a reason behind removing the logo. Samsung has been facing tough competition from Apple in Japan along with smartphone makers like Sony, Fujitsu and Sharp. The South Korean tech giant did not have a great 2014 owing to slow sales of the Galaxy S5.

Finally, it also brings Samsung Pay to the devices. If you aren't in the know, Samsung Pay is the South Korean company's answer to Apple Pay and Android Pay.

Fix your bricked Lumia 520 or 525 with the updated recovery tool
 
01:41
Recently Microsoft made available the Windows 10 Technical Preview for Lumia 520/521 and 525. These are the weakest phones among the Windows Phone 8 gang with just half a gig of RAM. The update process went well for the early adopters, though issues arose when trying to roll back to Windows Phone 8.1. Apparently lots of users, who didn't want to stick with the Windows 10 Preview got their Lumia 52x bricked after trying to revert back to Windows Phone 8.1. Some devices got stuck on a red Nokia logo, while others just went dead with nothing on the screen. Microsoft has a dedicated Windows Phone Recovery Tool, which usually saves bricked smartphones. Unfortunately it doesn't help with the bricked Lumia 5 series. Microsoft now has a new version of this tool, which should help recover the bricked Lumia 520/521/525. According to Microsoft the major issue was with the data writing size and speed. Microsoft basically lowered the image files and the writing speed. The company doesn't promise this updated toll will fix all bricked Lumia 52x, but it should work in most cases for those with a red Nokia logo and with the black screen. Microsoft is still investigating the problem and is working to bring back to live all bricked Lumia smartphones. Meanwhile the Windows 10 Preview update is on hold until all issues are resolved. You can download the new Windows Phone Recovery Tool from this link. Its version should be 1.2.4.

Android 5.1 update rolling out for Korean LG G Flex2
 
01:04
Android Lollipop 5.1.1, the latest available OS version, is now seeding for the LG G Flex2, or at least for its Korean version, sporting model number F510S. That puts the G Flex2 among a select group of less than 1% of Android devices that boot Google's latest. The build, carrying internal designation F510S15b, is dated May 12, but is only now making its way to the device. As well as bringing the OS up to date, the new firmware is said to fix certain bugs, leading to improved performance. Additionally, and that may be more readily noticeable, the Smart Bulletin and Smart Notice features have been disabled by default, again aiming for a performance boost. Naturally, you can re-enable both of them from the home screen and widgets settings respectively. With the release already out, we should expect global models to follow in the coming weeks, though obviously no specific timeframe is available.

Samsung Galaxy J5 2016 edition pops up in India's import office The 2016 edition of the Samsung Galaxy J5 has surfaced on Indian import database Zauba. The online document shows the Galaxy J5 (2016) has the model number SM-J510 and has entered the country for testing purposes on January 8. In terms of specs, the listing doesn't reveal much. The display of the Galaxy J5 (2016) is the only thing listed and it's a 5.2" display. Resolution isn't known yet, but we presume it's going to be 720p, like the current-gen Galaxy J5. There's neither a price, nor release date for the 2016 Galaxy J5. The midranger could be ready for prime time at the end of February in time for the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
