Did you know new Android tablets are still being launched? Yes, we know, that’s hard to believe. Outside of the ubiquitous Apple iPads and occasional rumors of another Samsung Galaxy Tab coming out, ASUS has been working on a new ZenPad, and it’s pretty good.
Do you sometimes wonder how certain things happen against all odds? That’s how rival companies are feeling about Samsung’s record profits during the fourth quarter of 2016, a time in which Sammy was still recovering from its Galaxy Note 7 woes.
The most important takeaway from Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 press conference yesterday is that the Korean tech giant has learned from its mistakes, and is not afraid to take full responsibility for the explosive incident. Now that the investigations are over and all issues have been set aside, Samsung is already announcing the next phase for the Galaxy Note line.
With 2017 in full swing and the launch of the Galaxy S8 mere months away, Samsung hopes to put to rest the case of the flaming Note 7 and the subsequent recall of what many considered to be the best smartphone ever built.
Today at a press conference in Korea, the tech giant announced the results of its own internal investigation and that of three other independent firms.
Xiaomi’s highly popular vice president, Hugo Barra, will soon be leaving the company to return to his roots in Silicon Valley. The fate of the Chinese manufacturer and Mr. Barra himself are shrouded in mystery.

The Honor 6X isn’t an entirely new phone. Although it experienced an international launch earlier this month, it’s been around since its original unveiling in China last October. We’ve been using it since acquiring a unit at CES 2017; here’s my take on the midrange smartphone.
Whenever a smartphone has a Plus at the end of its name you expect it to be bigger and better than its namesake.
But that’s not the case when it comes to the V5 Plus, the newest smartphone from Chinese up and comer Vivo. In fact when it comes down to the tale of the tape, the V5 Plus is roughly the same size as the V5 that came a few months before it.
For the past few years, solid-state drives (SSDs) have become quite popular in the computing world, mostly because of how fast they are compared to hard disk drives (HDDs). So, what exactly sets an SSD apart from an HDD?
If there’s one brand that strongly resonates with the entire camera community, it’s Leica. While the iconic manufacturer isn’t as innovative as it once was during the film era, photographers around the world acknowledge the craftsmanship of every new iteration. Let’s take a moment to appreciate the just-launched M10.
Vivo doesn’t seem to mind exposing everything about the V5 Plus before its official launch later this week. Case in point: The new phone is now listed on Vivo’s official website, revealing all of the handset’s features.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from ASUS throughout the years, the company and its CEOs think highly of their phones, to the point of calling them “better than Apple, better than Samsung.” Still not satisfied with its success, the Taiwanese manufacturer set another high bar for itself.
Back when we learned about the Vivo V5 Plus’ launch date, we were kept in the dark when it came to its specifications. Now, thanks to one of Malaysia’s online retailers, we know pretty much everything about the upcoming phone.
I get asked a lot about laptop recommendations, and while it’s easy to give an answer for notebooks above $400, anything below is tricky. So when Starmobile asked me to review its $150 Engage Aura, I happily obliged in order to deepen my knowledge of the budget-friendly segment.
