The Xiaomi Mi Max has just been announced and it is going to be a huge one, quite literally! There will be three versions of the handset with slightly different hardware and internal storage capacities, but all versions will sport the same 6.44-inch 1080p display with a ppi count of 342. The enormous phone measures in at 173.1mm × 88.3mm × 7.5mm and weighs in at 203 grams. Initially, the device will only be available in China at a price of RMB1499 ($230 approx.), RMB1699 ($260 approx.) and RMB1999 ($307 approx.) for the respective models.


From what we know so far, all three models will share the same 6.44-inch FHD display, 3 gigs of RAM 5mp/16mp front and rear cameras, expandable memory, fingerprint scanner, metal build, USB 2.0 port and the massive 4850 mAh battery. Difference between the model priced at RMB1499 and the one that is priced at RMB1699 lies in the chipset used and the in-built memory. If you are ready to pay the higher price, you can own the 64GB model with the octacore Snapdragon 652 chipset. The cheaper one on the other hand will offer you less internal storage (32GB), as well as the slightly weaker Snapdragon 650 hexacore SoC. Xiaomi is offering the MI Max 128GB version at RMB1999 and this one will come with 4GB of RAM instead of 3GB. The SD 652 SoC will power this one as well while all other specifications will remain the same.


The Max will be made available for purchase in China, starting May 17, but no such plans for the US have been declared yet. If you really like the specifications and the "giant" form factor, there is always the option of importing one though. What do you think? Would you like to see the Xiaomi Mi Max being launched in your country or would you give it a pass?

With all the developments in mobile devices these days, it is easy to let some things slip you by. For users making their way from beginner to intermediate user and beyond, there might be some components of mobile devices with which you are not familiar. Here we'll go over some basic information on VPNs to help you understand what they are and how they are used - and with this, you might get some indication on whether or not they're right for you.


The Basic


VPN stands for Virtual Private Network, and in simple terms can be thought of as a go-between between your computer and the internet at large. When connected to a VPN you receive your data from the VPN, and the VPN service itself is responsible for sending and receiving your internet data requests. The benefits of this come primarily down to security, geo spoofing and evading various limitations imposed by your connection point.


When you have a VPN, any attacks have to come through the VPN service, rather than directly to your computer. As VPNs (especially professional ones) have improved security over most basic computer setups, they manage to take a lot of slack for the end user. There is also the added complexity in attacking through a VPN, which again benefits the end user.

Geo-spoofing is a term applied to tricking a website or server into thinking you are from a different location. Sometimes websites or videos are locked behind geographical requirements, so this can be an easy an effective method of circumvention. The same can be said for limitations placed by the connection point themselves. Commonly, this can be seen in free Wi-Fi places like public transport. While the blocking of certain websites is a good idea, they can be overzealous, blocking places which are safe and offer no significant bandwidth drain.


The Modern VPN


Modern VPNs are far from the sluggish old behemoths we had to deal with a decade ago. These days, VPNs can not only access largely the exact same web pages and services as natural connections, they also can do so at a speed which renders them similar in performance.


These days there are an enormous amount of VPNs to choose from, thanks to improving technology and a great market demand. If security is a big concern for you, as it should be, then check out our other articles. These can help to help to decide whether the rest of the features are a good fit for you.


Once you have decided on a VPN service ExpressVPN, we recommend checking out some of the many online reviews, which can help you narrow down the pros and cons, and get the most out of what is right for your devices. Remember to be thorough and read closely, some of them might come with features you didn't even know you would like.


The Take Home


VPNs are becoming more common for a reason. With issues like Net Neutrality raising to the forefront of social conscience our privacy, safety, and freedom of choice and speed have never faced so many threats. The right VPN can help protect you not only now but can help ensure that in the future you are inoculated against many of the issues that governments or businesses see fit to throw at you. Just be sure to use your powers for good.

These days, it isn't rare to take our mobile devices with us everywhere. Mobile phones and tablets have expanded their abilities at incredible rates. Now, the power under our fingertips is vaster than the technology that sent the Apollo missions to the moon. That is an incredible leap forward that, along with the Internet's global community has completely changed the way that humans interact and live.


The digital age has made people available 24/7, no matter where they are. People can communicate using cutting edge chat-apps that even 15 years ago would have required a powerful desktop PC (remember AOL?). Now, we can chat to someone in Indonesia from Seattle at the drop of the hat - and then be chatting to someone in Ukraine moments later - all while waiting for a train (thanks to 3G or public WiFi).


Digital Drawbacks & Technological Threats


Sadly, along with the ability and will to be connected, also comes some very serious drawbacks. Modern problems. Digital threats that in some ways make people more vulnerable than ever before in history. Being connected leaves a trail and these digital footprints code for who we are like digital DNA. The data we create is highly personal and for that reason that data is incredibly valuable and people must seek to protect it.


What we actually find is a decrease in the level of scrutiny we apply to our online presence. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and the plethora of other social media platforms are all there for us to use, but that comes at a cost. We share our intimate moments. We share where we are, when we're away from home, when we're going on holiday, and often leave very easy breadcrumbs on exactly what we're doing, and when we're out, and where to find us. We share details that we wouldn't share with friends or family face to face, but saving them in a public forum is acceptable for millions of us. These posts, and images stay there forever. We think so little of our own private information that we give away lots of our information for free, without even thinking about it.


The inter-connectivity of devices also throws up additional concerns. We login to everything, on everything. Our phones have Facebook, our Facebook is used as a logon tool for many other services. We input our date of birth to gain access, our e-mails, our interests, likes, hobbies, names, friends, and more at an increasing rate. Our entire lives are online somewhere. Where people feel more at home with their mobile devices, we also login to our banks, and provide our financial information. The level of trust that we put into our devices, and the amount of digital data that we're inputting to those devices is increasing, drastically.


Governments, Internet Service Providers, advertisers, corporations, organizations, hackers, and cybercriminals, all want a piece of that pie. The technology has crept up on us quickly and only more recently have people come to accept that data should be considered a form of currency.


Whether it be to protect data from cybercriminals - or the government - the only way to be truly secure is for people to take control of their own digital footprints. Due to the value of personal data, everyone should make efforts to protect it. The sad truth is, that because that data is so valuable everyone is trying to get at it, but fewer are trying to protect it.


Personal cybersecurity


The first thing that people must realize is that mobile devices are just as vulnerable, if not more so, than PCs. In addition, the gap between Apple and Android has closed and now it is common to find malware for both. In fact, in some ways the Open Source nature of Android (as opposed to Apple's proprietary closed source environment) is allowing for encryption apps to pop up at a faster rate: things change.


These days, malware, viruses, spyware, and trojans all offer hackers methods for intercepting data - and their availability online to ‘script kiddies' means that cybercrime is at epidemic levels. The result is an elevated risk of fraud, loss of earnings - and perhaps worst of all - identity theft. For these reason, people need to take personal cybersecurity seriously and must seek to protect themselves and their devices. The most basic step is to make sure that the apps we install on our devices are secure, and that we always update them with the latest security patches and updates.


Third party and untrusted apps might be tempting, but the reality is that they could be malevolent. For this reason, people should to stick to trusted apps from known vendors and app stores. Even on official distributors such as Google Play Store it is possible to come across malicious apps.


For this reason people should take extreme care when downloading apps. Before you agree to install the app, check the permissions carefully. If the app wants access to things it doesn't really need then think twice before installing it. Why does a torch app want access to your GPS location and all of your contacts? If the requests don't seem reasonable simply don't download the app.


Remember that data is a currency, so if an app says it is ‘free' maybe you are actually paying with your data? In some cases, it might be worth paying a pound for a torch app that only requires access to the light on your phone, than to accept the free one that wants access to your entire device.


The Big Public WiFi Threat


Alongside smart devices, which allow us to be connected non-stop, in recent years there has been an explosion in the availability of public internet hotspots. Those hotspots provide high speed connectivity when people are out and about. The advantage of logging onto public connections is that people get to save their mobile data (if they have data limits).


What many people might not realize, however, is that public WiFi can be a security risk. When connected to public networks people's devices are vulnerable to having their data intercepted by another user that is logged onto the same router. This problem is the same on any WiFi - including shared home networks - so if you live in a big house where a lot of people regularly take the password from the router - you could also be at risk. The best solution for the problem is a VPN service.


A VPN service encrypts all the data between a phone, or tablet, and the VPN's servers. The result is that nobody on a public WiFi (or even on a fake hotspot controlled by a cybercriminal) can ‘sniff' the subscriber's data, as that data is encrypted.


The best VPNs provide strong military grade OpenVPN encryption, but many don't. With different levels of protection, and different services providing different benefits (and disadvantages), what you're specifically looking for can change the VPN service that you are looking for. Do you want faster speed, but are willing to accept a smaller number of geo locations, or do you need security at all costs, including speed and price? As such, it's important to do research about which VPN to use.


Other Levels of Protection


McAfee, Norton, AVG. At the launch of the internet, it's rare that individuals would have been desperate for anti-virus. There simply weren't as much malicious code flying around, but now, with an always-on internet antivirus is no longer seen as that "additional level of security that might sometimes help", or for those who delve more often into virus rife areas of the net. Now, things are different. It's rare for new computers, and new operating systems to not include some form of anti-virus, even for a month's trial while you set your computer up ensuring that you're not infected at this vital stage of life of your computer.


Not only is antivirus an integral part of your computer system, but firewalls are also included in the same package to help keep your computer safe. The problem arises that we're using our PCs, and our Laptops less and less, and using our mobile phones, and tablets more and more. There's a huge disconnect between the level of security on our larger devices, and our mobile phones, but we're still storing our intimate data on unprotected devices.


This could be a bit more understandable if protective services weren't easily available for mobile devices. Antivirus, firewalls, and password protection are just as available for devices, and the larger firms often provide multi-device deals, permitting several devices to be covered by the same services.


As well as more digital based protection, there's a large amount of physical ways to protect the data on our phones as well. Phone manufacturers are constantly in an evolutionary arms race with chancers who find new back-door entrances into devices. This has led to an increase in the amount of protection required to unlock a phone. Rather than just a pin, we now have patterns, passwords, swipe to unlock, fingerprint scans, google sign-ins. These simple methods help to keep that data secure from prying hands.


Our data, and our lives are much more mobile than they were before. Keeping up with that level of change is not only important: it's imperative.



We live in the golden age of mobile communications and web browsing, and thanks to advances in technology our computers have become faster and smaller. As a result of this many new industries have grown around the platform to create an ecosystem of functions, services and enjoyment for users. Some new sectors that have grown as a result of the ubiquity of mobile devices are the mobile gaming and gambling industries as barriers to access and cost came down. In this post, we take a look at 3 reasons why mobile devices have grown to become the perfect platform for gaming and gambling activities.


1. Gaming on the Go


By far the biggest contributing factor as to why mobile devices have become the best place for gaming and gambling is the portability of the devices we now use. Smartphones pack lots of sophisticated hardware and software in a pocket-sized device that allows us to access content on the internet such as video games, mobile slots, and virtual casino's. Mobile games nowadays have evolved into very well-designed titles with realistic graphics that provide anything from a quick game to pass the time such as Flabby Bird, to fully immersive experiences that provide hours of entertainment such as PokemonGo.


Whether you're on your daily commute, have a few minutes to kill in a waiting room, or relaxing at home, - mobile users have access to billions of pages of content, services and much more at the tap of a screen. This portable convenience is why gaming has taken off so spectacularly, everyone with a mobile device is a potential gamer, and millions are taking up the challenge.


2. Online Casinos and Gaming Platforms


An extension of the points made above is the fact that casino and video games are now available on the internet and in app stores. Technological advances mean that anyone can enjoy the experience of a casino without having to painstakingly plan a trip to Las Vegas or Macau. In the same way, besides the cost of your mobile there is often no need for further investment to play mobile games as many are available for free. This is in contrast to investing in a video games console or an expensive gaming PC,- as well as the games, for example.


Needless to say, many gaming and gambling experiences are now specifically optimised for mobile to ensure each user's best experience on their particular device. Either way, the availability of virtual experiences on the internet and the speed and convenience of mobile mean have helped to grow the industry's popularity.


3. Social Gaming


Another internet-based phenomenon that has resulted from the digital boom and mobile platforms is social media. Our smartphones have allowed us to connect with our friends and family beyond just having their phone number. Social media also allows people to discover or build communities based around interests they follow and so it is with mobile gaming and gambling. There is no advertising that is as powerful as word of mouth, and that is what social gaming does best for virtual casinos and games; word spreads and fast popular games end up growing very quickly.


The three reasons outlined above are some of the most important factors as to why mobile devices are currently the best platform for playing video games and enjoying gambling experiences. Together they have created the best conditions for gaming and gambling to become as popular as they are today.


 

Unknown to many, Sharp was the original company who introduced the world's first bezel-less or borderless Android smartphone with the Aquos Crystal. Although the credit has to go to Xiaomi for refining it further with the Mi Mix and giving us the world's most advanced bezel-less smartphone at the time. However, Sharp is not about to go out of the game it seems as the latest leak on Weibo is pointing towards another borderless smartphone from the Japanese company. From what we can see, it may resemble the Essential Phone in the way that it has a hole near the top of the display to allow for the front camera.

 

Rumored to be the FS8010, this one won't be packing flagship specs like the upcoming Mi Mix 2 or any other borderless smartphone. Check it out below (based on what the rumors have provided us with so far).

 

5.5-inch 1080 x 2040 flat, borderless LCD display
Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC
4GB RAM
64GB internal storage
Single 12-mp camera
8-mp front camera
Android 7.1.1 Nougat

s6

 

On its latest flagship device, Galaxy S6, Samsung has ditched the microSD card slot for good. Depending on a faster internal storage for all Android and User files. The Korean giant will release 3 variants with different storage sizes (32GB - 64GB - 128GB). So...

 

How much storage available on a 32GB Galaxy S6 ?

 

Well, it's only about 23GB available for the user data after. The system-reserved storage is 6.5GB, with an extra 2GB reserved under the "Used space" heading. This means 9GB of storage is taken up the moment you open the box. You can disable apps, but not uninstall them.

 

The 64GB model will have around 54GB available for the user and finally, the 128GB will have 118GB available for the user. Your Choice!

 



Nokia has recently been at the front of tech news all around the internet, as its comeback is no more a matter of speculations but something that has already begun. The Nokia 6 was recently released in an online flash sale that was exclusive to China. It got sold out in under a minute! As you can imagine, that's exactly the kind of start that HMD was hoping for. Unfortunately, the Nokia 8 and its flagship specs turned out to be nothing more than a rumor. Nevertheless, we have recently received reliable (somewhat) news from GFXBench that Nokia might be in the process of launching a huge tablet. How huge you ask? 18.4-inches to be exact!


The 2.65kg tablet will reportedly be launched with beefy specs such as a gigantic 18.5-inch QHD display with 2560 × 1440 pixels resolution, Qualcomm 835 SoC with the Adreno 540 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, 4G LTE, GPS, NFC, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Check out the screenshot from GFXBench above to see more details. If this turns out to be true, will you be buying one? How much would you pay for this device?

htc one m9

 

More details leaked about the Upcoming HTC One (M9) flagship (codenamed Hima). This time around we're hearing that despite what some previously leaked pictures have shown us, the device won't be almost identical in terms of design to its predecessor, the HTC One M8.

 

In fact, in certain aspects it will be quite different. For the design of its front, and specifically the BoomSound speakers, the One (M9) will reportedly be inspired by the Nexus 9 tablet, also made by HTC and pictured below.

 

Nexus 9

 

Hence, the M9 is rumored to come with an edge to edge glass panel on its front. The speaker panels will no longer be exposed like they were in the original One and the One M8. Rather, they will be enclosed within the aforementioned glass. This will get two 45 degree cutouts for the slit speaker grills, which will span around 50% of the handset's top and bottom edges.

 

And this will apparently make the One (M9)'s design closely resemble that of the Nexus 9. According to the source of the information, the new style will enable a "slicker" and "more refined" look on the new flagship smartphone when compared to its predecessors.

htc one m9

 

HTC launch the One M9 with 32GB internal storage along with microSD support up to 128GB. However, According to HTC ROM developer @LlabTooFeR, the HTC One M9 will also have a 64 GB variant. Reportedly, this should be launched "later this year" in selected markets worldwide.

 

Both the One (M8) and One (M7) offer two storage capacities, so we're not really surprised to hear that the One M9 won't come in just a 32 GB variant. Obviously, the One M9 64 GB should be a bit more expensive than the regular 32 GB model, possibly costing $50 or $100 more.

As per a report that got out of South Korea, Samsung is on its way to make a few new features available in the affordable smartphones.


We're discussing about the fingerprint sensor and the support for Samsung Pay along with NFC. A source informed that Samsung is planning to deploy fingerprint sensors in budget smartphone models, although we're not quite sure what kind of smartphones would fall into the "budget" segment.


It seems that Samsung is getting affected by the Chinese makers, who include fingerprint scanners in lower to medium range devices. Moreover, at the same price point Chinese makers offer more features than Samsung. The tech giant is taking these steps to bolster its presence in the emerging markets. Currently Samsung is holding the top spot in 14 out of 15 emerging smartphone markets.


Unfortunately Samsung has not yet given any particular time frame to make these features available in the budget segment. As per speculations, Samsung Pay will be available in low and medium range smartphones in the first half of 2016. This will be rolled out for the company's Android devices. Analysts are still divided in their opinions of whether its Tizen smartphone will also have support for the payment system. Customers can expect access to some high-end Tizen offerings next year.

It has become quite a norm with Samsung - just before the release of major smartphones certain information gets leaked. This time around a list of Galaxy S7/S7+/S7 edge accessories have surfaced which gives out pricing info - specifically in the German market. Thanks to German WinFuture, the selection packages few major surprises.


To start off, Samsung is planning to compete with Apple by manufacturing a battery case that would look exactly like Apple's case, which will hopefully look beautiful in terms of design. The case would cost €89.99 ($99.9) which packages a battery with a capacity of 2,700 mAh with support for wireless charging. As per recent speculations, the Galaxy S7 is supposed to come with a 3,000 mAh battery and the S7+ and S7 edge are said to package a gigantic 3,600 mAh battery.


Another interesting thing in the list is the first of its kind Samsung LED View Flip Cover (€69.99, or $77.7). According to the source, the flip-type case will have LEDs which will send out notification in case of incoming calls. Finally, a Leather Cover in black and brown color will also be released during the launch.

 



Rumors about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have been going haywire recently and just a few days ago, one such rumor suggested that there will also be a flat screen variant of the upcoming device. This conclusion was based on the fact that the model number SM-N930F was allegedly seen on Samsung's own website. However, we saw no such indications in the leaked teaser image which we showed you earlier. The latest report published by SamMobile and informed by their source in South Korea, further stresses on the fact that Samsung is not going to market a flat screen Note 7 this year. According to them, there will be only one dual Edge curved screen variant of the device in 2016.


This decision was supposedly taken because the South Korean OEM is now trying to focus more on making profits than gaining market share. We like the Edge display more than the flat one and are behind this decision by Samsung. They add more functionality to the display and look just downright gorgeous. However, there is a large group of people who find the dual Edge impractical as there have been reports of the Edge display getting activated unwillingly, in spite of Samsung's palm rejection technology. What kind of a display would you like to see on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7?

We had only heard rumors up until now about Samsung's upcoming virtual assistant and the artificial intelligence that powers it, but it has now been confirmed by Samsung officially. Previously, Samsung had filed for patenting the name "Bixby" and reports are suggesting that's exactly what the AI assistant will be called on release. Also, the good news is that it will be launched along with the upcoming S8 as expected.


In the official statement by Executive Vice President Rhee Injong, "Developers can attach and upload services to our agent,"


"Even if Samsung doesn't do anything on its own, the more services that get attached the smarter this agent will get, learn more new services and provide them to end-users with ease."


Although this means that third party services will be supported, Samsung did not specify any details about which ones it will work with or how exactly it will work with them. It will be interesting to see how the AI developed by the Korean electronics giant manages to stack up against the competition and especially the likes of the mighty Google Assistant that is now exclusively available to the Pixel phones.

Samsung had earlier announced that customers in the US should start receiving safe replacements for their hazardous Note 7 smartphones by September 21 and they have kept their promise. Reports indicate that Samsung has already started to distribute the new batch of smartphones to the customers and resellers here in the US. We guess Tim Baxter (COO, Samsung Mobiles US) meant it when he proclaimed the aforementioned deadline in an official apology video, in which he also requested all customers to immediately power down their devices and contact Samsung for a replacement or a refund.



Apparently, Best Buy is one of the first resellers in the US to notify their customers about the replacements having arrived. Although we are not sure, but Best Buy is probably also the only reseller right now that's providing the replacement Galaxy note 7 smartphones to their customers. Nevertheless, we are pretty sure that the other resellers and carriers will pick up on it before September 21. Now that Samsung has guaranteed safety with their new batch of Note 7s, will you be opting to buy one or would you choose something else from what the competition has to offer?

Even though Samsung did not exactly say it out loud, we are sure that the iris scanner will inevitably be a part of the Galaxy S8 next year. The company has made it official that they will compensate their parts suppliers, who suffered a loss as a direct result of the Note 7's recall and subsequent discontinuation. Both common sense and reports from South Korea are suggesting that this compensation will involve endowing the S8 with an iris scanner. Additionally, Samsung may also choose to equip the S8 with a dual-lens rear camera sensor to increase revenue for the affected supply chain partners.


Sources state that the main partners who will benefit from this decision are Sekonix (camera lens supplier), Samsung Electro-Mechanics (camera module supplier), Patron and MCNEX (iris scanner manufacturer) and Kolen (supplies the lens necessary for building the iris scanner). Since there is also another rumor going around, which states that Samsung will concentrate on one flagship smartphone in the entire next year, this might actually be a good strategy. It will help Samsung stay in good terms with their suppliers, as well as slowly turning around the unfortunate incident which has and will continue to cost all involved parties dearly for at least a good while more.

Galaxy S6 Edge

 

According to the latest reports, Samsung may release an "Edge" variant for its upcoming flagship device Galaxy S6. The Galaxy S6 Edge will pack a curved display like the current Galaxy Note Edge.

 

Instead of releasing a Prime variant which is like releasing the same device twice but with higher Specs, Samsung decided to change its strategy to provide a newer/better option with a new technology, Flexible Displays. The Galaxy S6 Edge will pack the same Specs and Design as the original Galaxy S6 but with curved display on the side. Rumored Specs for the Galaxy S6 include QHD display, Exynos 7420/Snapdragon 810 chipset, and 16MP or 20MP camera.

 

Galaxy S6 Edge

 

As the Korean Giant did with the Galaxy Note 4, Both S6 variants (Original, Edge) will be released at the same time, the expected release date is the first Half of 2015 (H1,2015).

 

VIA



Contrary to what we had been led to believe previously, a new report/rumor is indicating that the release for the Galaxy S8 will be delayed till April. As per the report, the delay is brought on to absolutely ensure the safety and quality of the product on release. Samsung had officially stated earlier that "Currently we do not have any plans to release Galaxy S8 early." We were led to believe that this means Samsung will stick to their usual routine of releasing the next Galaxy device a day prior to the MWC in Barcelona. Whether that happens or not, remains to be seen now.


We also have news that Samsung may begin to put together the prototypes and begin testing the S8 from January, after receiving the first order of the necessary parts from its supply chains in the same timeline. Mass production of the final build should begin around the month of March after two months of testing. If you are not yet aware of all else that the rumors are predicting about the Galaxy S8, take a look here. Keep in mind though, nothing is confirmed as of yet.

For those of you who don't know it already, Samsung Display is a division of Samsung Electronics that supplies panels to multiple manufacturers all over the world. Their clientele includes Apple, Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and of course, Samsung's own internal departments. Apparently, Samsung Display's recent flexible OLED sales to the aforementioned Chinese OEMs have reached brand new heights as this sub-division of the South Korean giant is boasting of a sales figure that amounts to a sum of over 1 billion USD in Q3, 2016. The fact that ONLY Samsung Display makes the 6th-gen A3 flexible OLED panels is largely responsible for the impressive sales number.


In a report by IHS Market, both the small and mid-sized display business is dominated by Samsung Display with an astounding market share of 96.2% in Q3, 2016. In the entire display business, Samsung maintains the lead with a share of 31.8%, while Japan Display Inc. (JDI) comes in as a distant second and a market share of 15.4%. LG is at the third position with a respectable 13.1% share of the business.

In what was quite a shocking revelation, it has been speculated that the LG G6 won't feature this year's flagship chipset, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. Keep in mind that this is just a rumor at this point of time and may not hold true. However, the implications of such an event are devastating for LG, should it turn out to be true. The LG G-series of smartphones have traditionally been a rival of Samsung's Galaxy S-series every year. If it misses out on the most powerful upcoming smartphone chip for Android phones which its arch-rival will be sporting, LG will lose the competition even before the sales begin.


As you know already, this year's SD 835 chip is made on Samsung's 10nm process. Rumor has it that any phone which comes out before April will not be sporting the flagship SoC as the chips will all be used in the Galaxy S8 first, before being delivered to any other smartphones in 2017. What this means is that the S8 will be the first phone to have the Snapdragon 835 inside. As the LG G6 is scheduled to be showcased at the MWC next month and the S8 has been confirmed to be delayed indefinitely, facts are suggesting that the G6 will be sporting the Snapdragon 821 SoC from 2016. Make no mistake though, the SD 821 is still the most powerful chip for Android phones right now, but by the time the G6 is released, it may just be playing second fiddle to the more powerful and power-efficient SD 835.

Although renders by leaksters and case makers had given us a good idea about what to expect this year from the Galaxy S line-up, this is the first time that the internet has treated us to an actual live image of the upcoming Galaxy S8. Courtesy of VentureBeat, we have a live image which shows the S8 both from the back and the front. Let us now take a deeper look at what has been revealed about the S8 by the picture, provided that it is indeed the Galaxy S8 which we are seeing here.


We can see a single camera module with flash and the fingerprint scanner placed right beside it. Additionally, there appears to be a single speaker grill at the bottom and there's a chance that another speaker grill will be found on top of the phone. There's USB Type-C as expected and most delightfully, the 3.55mm audio jack can be seen as clear as the light of day. Earlier rumors had suggested that the S8 Plus may feature a dual camera module, so this could very well be the regular S8 that we are seeing here. True to what every rumor had been predicting, the phone has no physical Home button and sports a bezel-less curved display. To find out everything else about the Galaxy S8, check out our Samsung Galaxy S8 specifications here.

Apple may take a page out of Samsung's book as the iPhone 8 is rumoured to sport an iris scanner for security. If you remember, the Galaxy Note 7 was the first phone to come with an in-built iris scanner and as of now, there has been no other release from any company which sports similar technology. If the rumors are true then the most expensive version of the iPhone 8 with an OLED display will be Apple's first phone with an iris scanner.


Rumors also indicate that the Galaxy S8, which will be launched next month, could sport the same iris scanner as the one we briefly saw on the Note 7, before it was discontinued. It will be interesting to see what changes Apple brings to the scanner to make it stand out from the competition. If they do indeed bundle in the iris scanner, will that justify the $1000 rumored price tag for the iPhone 8? What do you think? Let us know in the comments section.

According to DisplayMate, the Galaxy S8 quite simply has the best looking display on a mobile phone yet. DisplayMate is an industry expert when it comes to calibration and testing of displays in general and not only smartphones. If you doubt that title of being the best panel ever, check out what they found in their extensive testing of the smartphone's Super AMOLED QHD+ panel and decide for yourself.


Apparently, the Infinity display on the S8 and the S8+ has a peak brightness above 1,000 nits! If you have no idea what that means then consider the fact that at the highest brightness settings, the Pixel XL caps out at 403 nits, the iPhone 7 at 700 nits and the S7 itself at 855 nits. This basically puts the S8 and S8+ on an entirely different league and sunlight visibility issues non-existent.


In terms of the color gamut, the Infinity display can cover as much as 142% of sRGB / Rec.709 Gamuts and 113% of the DCI-P3 Color Gamut. The display also has Mobile HDR Premium certification from the UHD Alliance for better dynamic range. For the rest of the report, click here.

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are fantastic devices, but they have their flaws too. Fortunately, one of those flaws will not be a battery malfunction or more explicitly, a battery blow up anytime soon. In order to make sure that the Galaxy Note 7 disaster never repeats itself ever again in any of Samsung's future smartphones, the South Korean company has taken multiple steps; 8 to be exact! Check out the video that Samsung has released as the official release date for the S8 and S8+ draws near with each passing day.



Clearly in their attempt to take battery safety more seriously than ever, Samsung has also taken the controversial decision to stick with batteries that are practically of the same size as that of the S7 and S7 Edge from last year. While it may not be that bad for the S8+, this has had a detrimental impact on the S8 in terms of battery life. Consider the fact that both phones are pushing more pixels and a significantly larger and brighter screen than their predecessors and the problem should become apparent to you as well.

Although the Galaxy S8 and S8+ have not been released to the public yet, they are apparently receiving their first OTA updates. The updates contain the Android security patch for the month, but more interestingly, has the "fix" which takes away the ability to remap the Bixby hardware button from both devices. It wasn't easy to begin with as you had to install a third party app to get it done, but post the update, it just won't be possible anymore unless you decide to root your brand new device. The build numbe on the two updates are G950FXXU1AQDD (S8) and G955FXXU1AQDD (S8+) .


As of now, the update is only hitting the review units and pre-release handsets probably, since the two smartphones are not yet available for purchase anywhere. However, what this does mean is that if you do decide to buy any of the two handsets or if you have pre-ordered any one of them, the April security patch will be waiting for you, along with the Bixby Button reprogramming limitation patch as soon as you switch on your phone for the first time. Get that Wi-Fi ready and start getting to know Bixby I guess!

It is now official, the Galaxy Note 7 disaster is well and truly behind the company as the S8 and S8+ have seen an unbelievable 30% hike in pre-orders, as compared to the S7 and S7 Edge. Given that the S7 did not have any bad publicity to deal with, it wouldn't have been surprising if people were a bit more apprehensive about the S8 series this year. However, that's not the case and the S8 series is now officially the most successful launch for a smartphone that Samsung has ever experienced.


Tim Baxter, President and CEO at Samsung Electronics America, has proudly stated that the overwhelming response from customers worldwide is a result of Samsung "recommitting" itself as a innovator to bring innovations to the market. This news comes hot in the heels of another important update. Samsung will apparently be releasing a software patch very soon, which will take care of the red tinge issue, which is slowly becoming infamous; something that Samsung will probably not take very lightly.

As per a recent report published by Strategy Analytics, Samsung is selling their smartphones at $465 less than Apple on an average. This conclusion was reached after the firm established that the average selling price of iPhones is $692 and that of the Samsung smartphones is $227. This data is still somewhat dated though, given that the parameters were last updated at the end of Q4, 2016.


You can probably guess that this isn't really a big surprise since Apple only sells premium smartphones, while Samsung does business in every budget category out there. The difference wasn't so shocking before though, but we are guessing that's an obvious effect of the tremendous competition from Chinese manufacturers, who continue to grow in the emerging markets. As Xiaomi, OnePlus and others continue to take over the budget and mid-range segments, Samsung has no choice but to lower the prices in order to stay competitive. They are nevertheless, still the leader in all segments on a global basis.

If anyone who has used the Galaxy S8 was asked to point out a single flaw in the S8's design, it would be the fingerprint scanner's placement. Of course the Bixby button could be up for argument as well, but it will more likely lose to that awkwardly placed sensor by far. If you have been following us, then you probably already know that the design choice in this regard wasn't really a "choice" for Samsung. After putting in the necessary money into developing a fingerprint scanning tech that could be placed below the glass, Samsung found that it wouldn't be ready before the beginning of the Galaxy S8's mass production process. They literally had no space left at this point to implement the fingerprint scanner, except where you see it right now.


Sadly enough, it seems that the Note 8 will not be able to sport the tech either as Samsung and even Apple is facing some serious issues with implementing the technology into their respective upcoming flagship smartphones. In the words of a Samsung representative (according to the report), "We made every effort to install a display-integrated fingerprint sensor on Galaxy Note 8, but we decided not to install it on this strategic phone due to various technical limitations such as security." Samsung will continue to work with CrucialTec and others in the field to develop and integrate the technology, but it doesn't seem like something which could happen before the Galaxy Note 8 is released.

Samsung had introduced the world to its first set of dual cameras with the Galaxy Note 8 just a few days ago and now the OEM is getting ready to do something similar in the mid-range segment as well. As per a report by Thai Mobile Center, the Galaxy J7+ will be Samsung's dual camera powered handset in the mid-range price segment in select countries. Of course, we can expect the dual camera setup to be much watered down than what we are seeing on the Galaxy Note 8 for obvious reasons. The Galaxy J7+ itself will likely be a more powerful version of the current gen Galaxy J7 (2017). If you are interested about the specs, just take a look below to know what the rumors are predicting at the moment.

A new leak suggests that the Galaxy S7 might feature a curved design that's similar to the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and S6 Edge. OnLeaks has provided a visual comparison between the upcoming S7 and the present gen Note 5. It clearly shows the Note 5 having a bigger camera hump and a flat back while the S7 is sporting a significantly reduced camera hump on a curvy back panel. If you were hoping that the Galaxy S7 will feature a flexible display, the chances of that happening aren't that good. You will instead, get a "curved in" flagship from Samsung this year, that's not only curved on its sides, but also curved on both the top and the bottom.



At Samsung's Unpacked 2016 event on the 21st of February, the Korean manufacturer is going to unveil the S7 to the world, but we are not sure as to how much of the mystery remains to be "unveiled." We mostly know what to expect, thanks to all the leaks and rumors that have been around for the last few months. Nonetheless, the specs do sound awesome and according to latest reports; those specs will be powered by a 3000mAh battery that's capable of playing videos on the Galaxy S7 for 17 hours on a loop. It can also be charged from 0-100% in 100 minutes and 0-50% in just 25 minutes!

Now that Android Nougat is finally here for Nexus devices, we have a few cool but hidden features that for you to try out on the new OS if you have not already.


1. Turning on the System UI Tuner - On the Quick Settings menu, long press the Settings icon until it starts to spin and when it does, System UI Tuner is enabled. The experimental features in this section include Power Notification controls for restricting or allowing app notifications on a finer level. You can remove the entire Quick Settings panel altogether from the drop down menu as well.



2. Multi-Window Compatibility - Go to Settings > About > Software information and then touch the Build Number seven times and do it fast. Developer Options should now be enabled. Go back to the Settings menu and find the Developer Options. Turn on Force activities to be resizable, and you should now able to open any app on your phone in the multi-window mode, even if they were not compatible with it before.



3. Block spam calls - Go to your phone's Dial app and go to Settings > Call Blocking from the menu. Turn on Caller ID & Spam and also enter any number you wish to block manually. You should now be fairly protected from unwanted callers or spammers.

Android-powered mobile devices are more popular than ever with an estimated 1.5 billion active devices currently operating across the globe. Each device can hold hundreds of apps but in a market that is so over-crowded, which apps are the most essential? Here are the top 5 must-have apps available on the Android platform.


WhatsApp Messenger



We currently live in a world where instant communication has never been more important. People want access to their loved ones and friends at all times and sometimes it can be tricky to get hold of those people when relying simply on phone calls and text messages if the signal is poor.


This is where WhatsApp Messenger comes in. Released back in January, 2010, WhatsApp allows users to not only send a text-based message, images, and even sound recordings to others through the app provided there is a 3G or 4G connection or wireless connection present but it also will not cost a penny for users to do so. Users can also set up group chats so they can message multiple people simultaneously and it just allows an extra potential method of convenient communication. It has a user base in excess of 1 billion active users making it the largest messaging app available. Its takeover by Facebook has also allowed it to maximise its potential over recent months.


Snapchat



It's hard to think that Snapchat first hit the app stores back in September, 2011 and it has just grown in popularity ever since. It is so popular in fact that some major companies have altered their logos on social media in order to link in with the Snapchat app. You might recognise that ghost-style image. It was originally created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown when they were student studying at Stanford University.


The app can be used for photo sharing, instant messaging, multimedia, and video chat. It is available in over 20 languages which shows how it has transcended cultures across the world. The app has proved to be such a hit with mobile device users that it had reached 10 billion daily video views in 2016. Even though the app initially hit the main stream for its image sharing capabilities, a recent survey suggested that 71% of users now actually used it for its instant chat functions.


Instagram



One thing that really riles professional photographers is when those that are not active in the industry claim they could do it. Unfortunately, for photographers, that claim has now been given more of a voice due to the rise of the image and video-sharing app Instagram that allows users to manipulate and edit their photographs to give it a more professional edge.


Instagram was initially released back in October, 2010 by its creators Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger and six years later it continues to be one of the most used apps on Android devices. It is listed up there with Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Flickr as being one of the main social network apps on the market. Latest figures suggest that the app has over 500 million active users every month which is a 100 million increase on 2015. It is used by celebrities and sports stars to communicate with fans and has even become a source of income for those in the fashion and food industries who blog their experiences for audiences.


Slots Huuuge Casino



Mobile casino gaming is an industry that is growing with every passing day. Online casino operators realise that analysts predict mobile casino revenue will hit the $99.6 billion mark this year and it is a market that is becoming potentially very lucrative as online products transfer onto the mobile platform.


There are an endless number of mobile casino offerings on the market but one of the most underrated ones is the Huuuge Inc-developed Slots Huuuge Casino. Players can get involved in a wide selection of classic casino games on their mobile devices such as slots, poker, blackjack, roulette, and baccarat plus many more. The likes of Big Fish Casino and DoubleDown Casino are still the bigger names but this app is one of a new up and coming generation that will evolve the market and take things to the next level.


Advanced Task Killer



It is a common complaint for users of mobile devices. An app that is sucking the life out of your mobile device battery has been left open in the background and within a matter of hours your device has run out of juice and you're left with a powerless mobile device without a charger within touching distance.


Advanced Task Killer is a tool that can help to solve that issue. It lists all the apps that are running both in the foreground and background of your mobile device. It will then give you the option to kill those devices to stop them from draining your battery. Developed by ReChild, it has been on the market for a number of years now but remains one of the most underrated apps available for download.

To be honest, there are plenty of app tools in the Google Play Store that are extremely useful, but if we had to choose just three for our smartphone, these would be them.


Google Translate (Free)



Google Translate is one of the best things to ever happen to the internet as it almost closes the communication gap completely in between people from different regions of the world. It has support for 103 languages at present, with many more about to be added. The app even supports offline translations for up to 52 languages and includes a conversation mode, so that you can translate while communicating with a person who is speaking in another language! There's also Optical Character Recognition embedded in the app now.


Smart Tools ($2.99)



Smart Tools is a handy little application which includes multiple rulers, a compass, torchlight, measurement tools, unit converter, vibrometer and a mirror. It's almost everything you may need for daily tasks, tucked into one app for easy access.


ParcelTrack ($2.99)



Being an online shopper myself, I really appreciate how easy it is to keep track of all my shipments via this one app. Put in the tracking number and the courier service's name to keep yourself informed about the whereabouts of all your shipments, complete with alerts and timely updates. If you are a seller who ships merchandise to your customers on a regular basis, you will appreciate ParcelTrack even more.

When you are a sports fan, the fun of the game is to watch it live, but when you go deeper you like to know the form of your favourite team, racer, or horse. If you are looking for the best mobile free bets, or even wanting to have more in-depth knowledge of the sport, then you have to dive into the statistics and latest news.


This can be done by looking at newspapers and reading all the information included, of course, but in the era of the Internet we also have an unlimited source of statistics and news at hand. To get some control on this deluge of information, we have apps that can get us all the information we want, without drowning us in unneeded clutter. With that in mind, here are 5 must have sports apps in 2017:


BBC Sport




The BBC has always been a useful source of information for news on our favourite teams, as well as the latest scores and highlights from games and races. With the BBC Sports app, not only can you find all the stats you want, but you can also listen to Radio 5Live and Five Sports Extra while browsing.


BBC iPlayer Radio



When on the move and not at a game, sports fans still want to know the results. BBC iPlayer Radio allows sports fans to listen the live commentary without being trapped at home.


TalkSPORT and TalkSPORT 2



Sometimes the BBC may not be running commentary for the games you want, so TalkSPORT and TalkSPORT 2 can help here. They are the official broadcaster for the likes of the FA Cup, EFL Cup, and also the English International games so this can be an essential app for sports fans.


Oddschecker



Oddschecker is one of the most popular odds comparison website in the UK. The odds are gathered from the most reputable bookmakers which include William Hill and Ladbrokes. Punters are able to tailor the app to see more of their favourite sports, whether it's football or horse racing, users can keep track all of their bets with different bookies in one app!


Official F1



The Official F1 app is an essential tool for fans, even when they are sat watching the games on television. Not only does it provide all the latest news, but it lets you track the racers on the track during the race, and includes all the details such as top speeds, tyre information, and best laps.


The Internet is an excellent resource for sports fans, but it can also be a curse sometimes because of the sheer amounts of information that is out there. Having apps like the ones above mean we can get the information we need, and have it on hand at any moment, keeping us informed on all the vital information we need.

The soccer season is a month underway and we've already had plenty of thrills, not least the news that La Liga will be touching down in Miami early next year, with the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho gracing these shores to make history.


Of course, we've also got the Premier League to enjoy as well as Serie A, MLS and international football across the next nine months, and there's no better way of keeping up than with your smartphone.


Our cells are now the first port of call when it comes to the sports headlines, particularly when you're checking the scores from all manner of time zones. If you're struggling to keep up, or simply need a bit of inspiration to enjoy the new season, here's our rundown of the best soccer apps to make the most of...


ESPN

 

ESPN will bring you results from across the planet, whether you're checking up on goals from Zlatan in LA or Cristiano Ronaldo in Turin. It's a fantastic app that brings you all the latest soccer news as it comes in.


A reliable source for statistics, you'll be able to wow your friends as well as catch up on plenty of video features, podcasts and much more.


It's available on both iOS and Android, so there really is no excuses.


Football Manager 2019

 

If you fancy yourself as the next Jose Mourinho or Jurgen Klopp, then the new edition of Football Manager is most certainly for you.


Every year it improves, and while the new version isn't out until November, we expect this year to be no different. Managing every aspect of a club, from transfers to training and matchday preparation, it's a game that truly is for the soccer obsessive. Your free time is no longer free.


William Hill

 

Everybody loves a bet on the soccer at the weekend. It goes hand-in-hand and in 2018 there are more ways to do it than ever before. William Hill is among the best Android betting apps and offers a huge range of markets across almost every league in the world.


You can build an accumulator that includes all the top teams from the USA, England, Spain, Germany and even Australia, and you can make some pretty good money from it too!


MLS

 

If it's all about the soccer from back home though, the MLS app is perfect for you. With the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney now gracing the league, it well and truly has grown in profile, with the whole world paying attention.


The MLS app brings everything you want from the league directly to your smartphone including score updates, highlights and all the latest match previews and post match analysis.


You can personalize the app to suit your favourite franchise and it's available on both Android and Apple devices.


FIFA Mobile

 

No smartphone is complete without the phenomenon that is FIFA downloaded to it though. Recent reports are suggesting FIFA 19 is better than ever. The demo is out and has been receiving rave reviews, so it's just a waiting game until it's officially released.


It's the ideal game for long commutes on the subway, with the graphics getting closer and closer to their console counterparts. It's your chance to live out the dream, even if it's only until you arrive in the office.

Not unlike the fabled Galaxy X and its foldable display, the in-screen fingerprint scanner never really arrived on any Samsung device, in spite of there being no shortage of rumors that hinted Samsung will incorporate it in the Galaxy S8 or the Note 8. As it turns out, even the upcoming Galaxy S9 will most likely go with a traditional fingerprint scanner at the back, albeit in a better place! However, the focus of this news is the fact that it's a Chinese company named Vivo that has beaten the mighty Korean giant and the all-powerful Apple in getting Synaptics' inside-the-display fingerprint scanner inside one of its smartphones.


Vivo is no joke though, because the company is one of the leading smartphone companies in its home country and in India. Unfortunately, this also means that the western world might not see this smartphone ever make its way onto the US shores. In the words of the source, which is Patrick Moorhead aka @PatrickMoorhead on Twitter,



"Here are some pics @anshelsag and I took of the Vivo smartphone with the Synaptics in-display fingerprint reader. The CMOS image sensor is .7mm thick and reads the fingerprint right through the OLED display. The experience was faster than I expected."

While the entire world is busy with speculating about the iPhone 7's unveiling next month, Bloomberg has recently published a report on the iPhone 8, which is probably still in the drawing boards. Even though the iPhone 7 would most likely resemble the current-gen iPhones in many ways, the iPhone 8 might be a different beast altogether.


At the core of the redesign lies the decision to remove the physical Home button usually found in the middle of the bottom panel. Obviously it will still be there, but as a part of the display. This would mean that the future iPhones may have nothing but an OLED edge-to-edge display (as per rumors) in front. The touch-sensitive sensors integrated in the display will give the user a vibrating feedback to mimic the sensation of actually pressing a physical Home button. Since we have already seen something like this with the MacBook trackpads, we imagine that it is quite a plausible possibility. The OLED panels on the other hand are definitely coming, but whether they will make it to the iPhone 2017 models is something that we will have to wait to find out more on.

Take a look at these iPhone 7 live images that are stirring up brand new rumors about the upcoming Apple smartphone. What we have here is an iPhone 7 Plus/Pro in black, complete with the dual camera setup and POGO pins at its rear. True to what we had heard before, it seems like Apple has done away with the 3.5mm jack altogether. While the phone does look quite stunning in black, it has raised new questions.



Things have become quite confusing as this is a 5.5-inch device with the dual camera setup, which is what we were expecting the iPhone 7 Plus or Pro to sport. According to previous reports, there will be only two versions of the iPhone this year and only the higher end Plus/Pro will have the dual camera setup, but not the POGO pins as we see here on this device. The smartphone seen in these images is clearly sporting both the rear POGO pins and the dual camera setup, which is countering the previously established rumors and reports. We will found out more on September 7, when the next iPhones will be reportedly unveiled.

According to the China Consumers Association, many of the iPhone models are experiencing a strange issue where the phones are switching off unexpectedly. They are claiming that the affected models so far include the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. In fact, this isn't even a localised incident as consumers all over the world have reported similar problems with their iPhones in the last few weeks. Apple had in fact, issued a notice globally on November 20, while addressing the problem.


"Apple has determined that a very small number of iPhone 6s devices may unexpectedly shut down. This is not a safety issue and only affects devices within a limited serial number range that were manufactured between September and October 2015.


If you have experienced this issue, please use the serial number checker below to see if your iPhone 6s is eligible for a battery replacement, free of charge."


However, the Chinese authorities have declared that the battery problem extends beyond just the iPhone 6s and Apple has failed to "meet basic consumer needs for normal wireless communication." Some of the Chinese users are even reporting that changing the battery as instructed by Apple in their notice, doesn't solve the unexpected shutdown problem either.


It is evident that the problem is serious enough for the authorities to take notice of the matter, but Apple has not yet replied to these reports or notices till date.

No we are not talking about the iPhone 8 which we know is the most talked about iPhone at the moment. We are indeed talking about the iPhones which we will see in 2018. Based on a recent patent application by Apple, the iPhone which is still over one and a half year away from us, could sport a retractable design.



As you can see from the design sketches, the concept looks quite similar to what a scroll looks like. There are cylindrical housings on both sides and a thin sheet in between that can be retracted back until the two cylindrical units meet. The sheet in the middle is of course the flexible OLED panel of the device, with everything else being housed within the two cylindrical units. All of this is only hypothesis of course, but that's exactly what it looks like.



We have to admit, the concept looks downright revolutionary from every angle. Granted that chances of seeing something so radical and futuristic by next year are pretty slim, it is still a fact that Apple has indeed applied for a patent and these sketches seem to show us in which direction Apple is headed.

Moto 360

 

The semi-circular LCD on the Moto 360 seems to be having a problem with image retention. A couple of users have reported their Moto 360 continues to show the circular charging bar on the screen even after you stop charging (as you can see on the image above).

 

Moto 360

 

Certain LCDs are occasionally prone to image retention or persistence issue, wherein if an image is displayed on the screen continuously for too long it gets stuck on the screen for a while and is visible even if you go to another screen. This is different from image burn-in that happens on AMOLED panels, where the pixels are permanently transformed and it's temporary on LCD but it's still annoying to see the previous image faintly on the screen even after you move to the next one.

Smartphone technology has single-handedly transformed a range of industries and the way we do things in a lot of areas within such a short space of time.
In this aspect, the mobile and gambling industry is no different, with mobile phones actually helping to save the sector as well as being a big part of its future and prosperity. There are a number of ways that smartphones have brought about changes to online gaming as the industry has willingly embraced the innovative platforms, helping to increase the amount of players and operators' revenue.


With that in mind, in this post we shall take a closer look at 3 ways smartphones have changed the gambling industry.



Easier Access and Greater Convenience


The Internet opened new avenues for gambling providers to reach their existing customers as well as millions of potential new ones. The advent of smartphones meant that each mobile user was now a potential customer, even if it were only for free to play games.
Nowadays, online games such as bingo and other casino and gambling games are amongst the most popular and with new players coming on board all the time. In this case resources such as bingosites.uk guides to playing bingo help new players to acclimatise and find the games they prefer and are good at. The easier access and convenience provided by smartphones also means that all the information players need is always only a tap away.


Internet connected mobile phones therefore helped to bring easier access and greater convenience to anyone interested in playing casino games or online gambling. This is one of the biggest reasons behind the growth and popularity of mobile games and gambling.


A Wider Variety of Games


Another benefit that smartphones have brought to the gambling industry is the ability to offer a wider variety of games for players to choose from. From digital versions of traditional games such as blackjack, roulette, or bingo, titles with different themes and game play are also now available. Gambling operators can now offer a wider range of games than they could ever do at any one time in physical locations. This is another reason behind the growth in the numbers of people who take part in mobile gambling, as there are games to suit all tastes and abilities.


A More Social Experience


As contradictory as it may sound, smartphones have actually helped to make gambling a more social experience for players. Even though footfall may have fallen in general at physical casinos, mobile phones are able to bring like-minded people together faster, and easier. With both social media sites and gambling games based on the same platforms, it easier to share your interests and favourite games with your friends or even the rest of the world if you wish.
This social involvement and the points mentioned above have fuelled a growth in gambling tourism, resulting in an increase in players visiting real world casino again.


Conclusion


In conclusion, the three points above show how much of an impact smartphones have had on the gambling industry to become one of its biggest drivers of growth in user numbers and revenue. With innovations coming fast and the sector always keen to embrace new technologies, the future of the two seem intertwined for now.

The revenue stats make it clear, mobile gaming is immensely popular. It is estimated that in 2018, revenues of mobile games will hit $70.3 billion, which is more than 50% than the overall gaming revenue of $137.9 billion. Mobile gaming has grabbed hold of the market because it's affordable (many mobile games are free to play) and they're accessible (players can access high-quality games on the go).


But the influence of mobile devices on gaming goes far beyond the financials. They have also had an impact on the wider games industry, changing how developers both on and off mobile devices create and market their titles.


Real-World Exploration



In July 2016, Niantic released a little game called Pokemon GO. The game allowed players to explore the real-world, catching Pokemon, battling for territory, and more. It also features a "buddy" system that allows Pokemon to accompany players as they explore for greater rewards.


Pokemon GO's success has impacted Let's Go Pokemon, the upcoming main Pokemon games for Nintendo Switch. The Poke Ball Plus device allows players to select a Pokemon and take them for a stroll by carrying them "within" the device, earning rewards when they return. The mechanic is directly borrowed from Pokemon GO and shows the impact of that game's success.


SMS Integration


You may well be familiar with the concept of SMS/text games e.g Never Have I Ever and 20 Questions, smartphones have allowed SMS integration to be kicked up a notch. These days, there is even greater integration and it's quite common for game developers to text you about updates to their mobile games or even to send you links to install their apps.


The use of SMS even allows gamers - on mobile or on other platforms - to get bonuses for other games. In some cases, this involves rewards when you've referred a new player via text or, like some no deposit bonus casino offers, players are able to activate their bonuses via text. In some casino promotions, free spins are delivered via text, with players able to verify and accept their free spins before jumping into the games they want to play. 


Cross-Platform Play



Gaming that allows players on PC and console has been a concept for a while, but with the rise of mobile gaming, that has been kicked up a notch. Mobile gaming allows players to play games on the go, but people still want to play with their friends and squad members, making cross-play a winning feature.


The mobile version of Fortnite is just the latest example of this, as its cross-platform play lets players on PC, PS4, Xbox One, iOS and Android devices to play alongside one another. While there are some technical hurdles, such as limits on using keyboard and mouse support to get ahead, it has shown other game developers why they need the feature.


The revenue shows that mobile gaming is only growing in popularity. This means that its influence on the wider industry is only set to grow, not fade. What are the next impacts we could see? Portable console screens? More free to play, casual titles. It will be exciting to find out.

Apple's 3D Touch is a feature that many Android users expect to see as a part of Android N, albeit with a different name of course! In fact, many are already calling it the chief attraction or the main highlight of Google's next version of the Android OS. However, a recent report by Recode suggests that the 3D Touch-esque feature will not be a part of Android N, as was believed previously. The report also adds that this delay is probably the result of "... a maintenance update to the software." If the report is true, then support for pressure-sensitive displays is unfortunately, still a bit far off for Android users.


Google's annual developer's conference or I/O 2016 starts on May 18 and will end on May 20. We expect that many details about Android N will be revealed both during and after the conference. Those that were lucky enough to experience the pre-release beta version via Google's early access plan will surely be eager to know what more they have added or are planning to add to the final release. Many consider pressure-sensitive features to be just a gimmick, what do you think? Would you like to see 3D Touch as a part of your next Android powered smartphone?

Although it isn't official yet, latest leaks are suggesting that Samsung will not be waiting till the IFA 2017 to showcase the Galaxy Note 8. Instead, they will be hosting a separate Samsung exclusive event in New York to announce the next Note in line. This event will allegedly be held merely days before the IFA begins in September and the date is expected to be August 26. Even if this turns out to be true, LG will be right on the heels of Samsung with their successor to the LG V20, the LG V30; which is rumored to be launched on August 31st, a day before the IFA commences.


Given that the LG V30 will be significantly cheaper than the Galaxy Note 8 (expected price is $700), Samsung could have some serious competition on their hands. While the LG V30 will in all likelihood, not feature a curved panel, it is possible that LG may finally shift to OLED panels with the V30. Combine that with excellent camera performance which the V-series is famous for and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 to get an idea of what to expect.

Lollipop

 

It has been the hot thing to make kill switches for phones recently. Carriers have been asked by government agencies to do it, states are passing laws to require it, Apple did it, and now Google is implementing it in Android 5.0, Lollipop will come with an opt-in "Factory Reset Protection" option that keeps a thief from being able to wipe your phone, making it a less appealing target in the first place.

 

Android Lock

 

If you activate this feature, your Google login will be required to factory reset the phone or tablet. Presumably this will also prevent factory resets through recovery-otherwise it would be pretty useless. A secure lock screen of some sort will be required for this feature as well. The feature will be built-in on all Android Lollipop.

Android 5.1

 

You may remember the memory leak bug that was reported on Android 5.0.1 Lollipop when it was released. Unfortunately, the same Bug still exists in the Google's latest version Android 5.1 Lollipop and it affects the system performance in the long-run. Google promised a final fix for this issue.

 

Issue No. 159738, "Memory leak still present on Android 5.1" was reported at the AOSP issue tracker. Last Friday, Google closed the bug and said that it has internally fixed the issue and plans to include it in the upcoming release version, Which most likely would be Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

 

Android 5.1.1 lollipop bug


The complaints are beginning to read the same. Apps, especially Google+, restart on their own. Some active apps disappear in the middle of using them, and free RAM drops in hours to about 750MB-800MB from 1.1GB-1.3GB. Most of the people who sent in a complaint appear to be using the Nexus 5, although other Nexus devices have been cited. Some complaints said that opening apps would increase the amount of RAM in use, but closing apps would not reduce that figure.

 

Android version 5.1.1 shouldn't take long until we see it rolling-out to Nexus devices and tablets as an OTA package or a Factory Image.

Lo and Behold! Android 8.0 is here and unsurprisingly, it has been named Oreo; the name that everybody thought it would carry from day one. Those rooting for Oatmeal Cookie will have to be disappointed because Nabisco did one over you all apparently... Now to get to the useful stuff, here is a list of Samsung smartphones which will be getting the Android Oreo update for sure. Keep in mind that list can and will expand in the future as more reports come in and Samsung makes things official, but all smartphones on this list right here are almost 100% assured to get a piece of Oreo in the future.

·        Galaxy Note 8

·        Galaxy S8+

·        Galaxy S8

·        Galaxy S7 Edge

·        Galaxy S7

·        Galaxy Tab S3

·        Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition

·        Galaxy A5 (2017)

·        Galaxy A7 (2017)


The Galaxy Note 5 and the entire S6 series are also rumored to qualify for the update but that's unsure at this moment.


If you were expecting a timeline then we must disappoint you because it's way too early for that. Head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones and tablets.
