The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are only a few days removed from being in the hands of those who pre-ordered, or will be lucky enough to purchase it from a retail counter on launch day. A lot has been said about the missing headphone jack, the added waterproofing, and those twin cameras that peek out from the back of the bigger iPhone.
The Pokémon Go community can apparently look forward to a new update this week. The update, referred to as version 0.37 for Android and version 1.7.0 for iPhones, will address a number of bugs and performance issues and introduce the Buddy Pokémon feature to the wildly popular mobile game.
As you might have heard, Samsung’s best phone ever is literally exploding around the world. The chances of you owning an unsafe unit are slim – Samsung claims only one in every 42,000 units are affected – but the inconvenience of replacing your Galaxy Note 7 or asking for a refund shouldn’t hold you back. Take the latest incidents as examples.
Not too long ago, Samsung issued a sweeping recall of the Galaxy Note 7 after reports of exploding batteries set fire to the internet. An internal investigation has since confirmed the reports and blamed faulty battery cells from Samsung subsidiary SDI. Shipments bound for China are reportedly safe for daily use, as they come with batteries outsourced to another supplier.
No, this isn’t a Flashback Friday article. Despite 99 percent of smartphones being bar-shaped touchscreens, the newly launched Android-powered Galaxy Folder 2 clamshell handset is Samsung’s latest throwback product.
We all knew they were coming, and now it’s official: Sony’s new and improved PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 4 Slim are here. We had the privilege of taking a closer look at the consoles during the launch in Hong Kong, and we even have the full price list for Southeast Asia.
Spotting an Xperia has become second nature to most. A flat rear, signature circular camera lens, and pronounced bezels – that’s a Sony smartphone right there. This year’s flagship, the Xperia XZ, is not much different, yet has a lot more in store for camera lovers.
A lot has been said about the next Apple smartphone prior to today’s keynote address, and pundits have been divided over what the new phone has and what it lacks. Many even questioned whether Apple was still capable of redefining consumer technology, whether it could still move the needle like it did during its boom years.
Earlier today, the world witnessed the unveiling of the LG V20. It’s the successor to the warmly received V10 from last year, and it’s the larger counterpart of this year’s LG G5. There’s a lot going for it, including a top-end processor, handy second screen, and unmatched audio chip. However, the real story is how the V20 is carrying LG’s image for the next few months. Let’s talk about its operating system and physique for a few minutes.
The Huawei P9 and P9 Plus are great phones in their own right; the dual-cam setup, in particular, makes a strong case for fitting two sensors instead of one into the back of the devices. But while they’re not exactly expensive like the iPhone and other Android flagships, they’re not what we would call wallet-friendly either.
You really have to hand it to LG for trying something different each time it releases a new flagship. Last year’s V10 delivered a rugged build with a pair of front-facing cameras and secondary LCD screen, while the more recent G5 introduced the world to partial modularity through its add-on Friends. Topping their innovations was going to be a challenge, but LG went ahead and added a second entry to the V-series with the V20.
It seems like “Max” is the trending tech word these days. With so many phones pushing massive screen sizes and jam-packed features, we’re bound to see more products exaggerate what it means to be a pocket handset. Meizu is continuing the supersized push with the multimedia-loving M3 Max.
It’s been nearly two weeks since we installed the final build of Android 7.0 Nougat on our Nexus 6P, and while we’ve been enjoying every new feature, there’s one that really stands out. No, it’s not the upgraded multitasking button or extra set of emojis, but the hidden cat-collecting game called Android Neko.
Samsung didn’t have time for yet another smartphone at IFA 2016 in Berlin, Germany, although the Korean giant did have a new smartwatch up its sleeve. This time around, the latest Gear model is more in line with conventional timepieces, in that it looks more like the genuine article than a fitness tracker.
