LG G6 Unboxing



LG’s G6 is a fantastic phone inside and out, but did you know not all countries are getting the exact same features? Our unboxing video covers these differences and more.

In a strange act of region locking, features like wireless charging, the amount of built-in storage, and audio capabilities are specific to certain markets. Not all countries are  getting headphones bundled in the package, either.

It’s a confusing issue, but we’re here to set the facts straight. Watch our unboxing of an unlocked US retail version below to learn the differences, and see just how gorgeous the Platinum color really is!

Nokia 2.3 has AI on a budget

Another competitive budget offering from Nokia



Nokia is continuing to make a stride in the Philippines by offering competitive budget and midrange smartphones at an attractive price. Now, it is bringing another budget device to the country — the Nokia 2.3.

The third iteration of the popular Nokia 2 series is now available in the country starting January 25. Each purchase comes with a free Bluetooth speaker and a case.

The best part about this phone is the price. At PhP 5,990, Nokia 2.3 is an affordable proposition to other budget devices from Chinese tech companies.


Nokia’s budget device does not skimp on features even with its low asking price. Unlike other budget devices, it features a metal unibody design that makes it feel premium compared to others.

In the camera department, the phone features dual rear cameras consisting of 13MP and 2MP setup. It also features an immersive 6.2-inch HD screen with a waterdrop notch that house the selfie camera.

Nokia is touting two-day battery life with a 4,000mAh battery packed inside.

However, what makes Nokia 2.3 a standout in the sea of budget devices is its guaranteed two years of OS updates. The phone will receive an update to Android 10 later this year. Besides, this phone is part of Android One, so expect smooth and solid performance from its stock-like OS.

The Nokia 2.3 is available on all Nokia physical stores nationwide. Buyers may also head to Nokia’s Lazada, Shopee, MemoXpress, and ArgoMall online store.

iOS 14 rumored to roll out to old iPhones

Is it coming to your iPhone?



Every year, smartphone users quietly hope for their device’s continued support. Will they get the major update for the year? Of course, every year is a guessing game until you get it.

A new rumor is taking away some of the mystery for Apple users. According to a French source, the upcoming iOS 14 will roll out to the same update list as last year’s iOS 13. Effectively, if your iPhone received the iOS 13 update, your device will also get this year’s update — from last year’s iPhones to those from the iPhone 6 series.

The rumored full list is as follows: iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 11, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE. Besides the iPhone lineup, it also includes the 7th-generation iPod Touch.

Meanwhile, the rumored iPadOS 14 list loses a few devices this year. The full list includes: 12.9-inch iPad Pro, 11-inch iPad Pro, 10.5-inch iPad Pro, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, 7th-generation iPad, 6th-generation iPad, 5th-generation iPad, 5th-generation iPad mini, and 3rd-generation iPad Air. Compared to last year, this list doesn’t include the 4th-generation iPad mini or the 2nd-generation iPad Air.

Of course, both lists don’t include this year’s set of iPhones and iPads. Naturally, every phone launching this year will support the upcoming iOS 14. Apple will likely launch the new update at this year’s WWDC event in July.

Once again, both lists are currently just rumors. Apple can still change the full list before the software’s launch.

Samsung Galaxy S8, Note 8 to get Android 10?

The claims are sketchy though



If Samsung customer representatives are to have their way, the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 will get Android 10.

As spotted by SamMobile, Samsung customer representatives are claiming another major update to the company’s 2017 flagships, the Galaxy S8 and Note 8. This comes after users asked for clarification regarding the flagships’ eligibility for Android 10.

Both devices launched with Android 7.0 Nougat on board. Their latest update, Android 9.0 Pie, came last March 2019. This is par for the course for Samsung who’s promise is to send software updates for up to two years only. However, a customer’s recent interaction shows the company might go beyond that.

These claims from Samsung representatives should be taken with a grain of salt. After all, claims from representatives are prone to error since they are usually the last to receive critical information. Plus, the latest Android 10 update roadmap didn’t even include the Galaxy S8 nor the Note 8.

Even if the 2017 flagships do not receive Android 10, users can still expect security updates for their devices.
