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 N1

 


Nokia's first Android tablet, Nokia N1, is doing well in China. Nokia N1 went on sale in China today, and the Finnish company exhausted the initial batch of 20,000 units in record time. It only took 4 minutes and 2 seconds to go through all that inventory. It's important to mention that the Tablet is running Android 5.0 Lollipop out-of-the-box.

 

N1

 

It looks like Nokia chose to go the flash sale route, perhaps inspired by Xiaomi's success with this model. The next opportunity to buy the N1 will come on January 15th, if you're in China of course. Otherwise, you will have to wait longer as the N1 isn't yet available anywhere else.

Do you like the curved displays on the S6 Edge, S7 Edge or the "hot" new Note 7? If you do, we have good news for you. If you don't, well, you better start developing a taste for them, because Samsung is all for curves now and the flat screen flagship variants might soon be a thing of the past. According to the Korea Herald, Samsung will not only be ditching the flat screen displays, but also the term "Edge" altogether in 2017. They further state that those curved displays will come in the same 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch size variants, as seen in the last two years. The dual-edge displays are already being manufactured by Samsung Display as per the report.


Allegedly, this decision was taken by the OEM after the S7 Edge outsold the S7 by a significant margin, in spite of being the more expensive one among the two. If you are not familiar with other rumors about the Galaxy S8, know that they are there and they all sound good (as they usually do!). A 4K display for amazing VR experience, a significantly more powerful Exynos 8895 SoC and a dual rear camera setup are all part of the rumor mill, but it's way too early to consider them anything more than that yet.

Did you find the regular Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge to be too modest? If so, then there is a way by which you can make your new S7 Edge stand out from the rest. Karalux is a Vietnamese company that specializes on luxury and if you have the money and the will to do so, they will gold-plate your latest Samsung smartphone for you. This may not come as a surprise to many because Karalux offered the same 24K gold-plating services for the S6 and S6 Edge last year as well.


According to the Vietnamese company, the process which allowed them to gold-plate the S6 series isn't the same anymore as Samsung has changed its aluminum grade from A7000 to A6000. This has somewhat complicated the procedure and as a result, it now takes 6 hours to complete it instead of the 3-hours timeframe from 2015. There are 10 stages involved in the process, at the end of which, your smartphone will never really lose all of its value.


If you are in Vietnam, you can own a 24K S7 for $1570 and a 24K S7 Edge for $1705. If you are an international buyer however, you will need to pay $1730 and $1930 for the gold-plated S7 and S7 Edge respectively.

The unsubsidized price of the Galaxy S7 in US is $670 and according to an American industry research firm, that price tag has a profit margin of $415 on each handset! The research firm known as IHS published a report recently which shows that Samsung manufactures each unit of the S7 at a price of $255, inclusive of everything.


According to IHS, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset that is powering Samsung's 2016 flagship devices in the US (the international variant is powered by Samsung's own Exynos 8890), is the S7's costliest part. Samsung however, buys the chipset at roughly $62 a piece. The 12-megapixel camera at the back of the S7 is its second most expensive part and it costs Samsung around $13.80 per module and an additional $5 for assembling and installing each unit.


Everything else like the glass back panel, the Super AMOLED display, the aluminum frame, internal storage, RAM, front camera, sensors and microphones come within a budget of $174.30. If this report has any truth to it, then Samsung's margin of profit on the Galaxy S7 is just astounding! It makes you wonder how much profit the South Korean manufacturer is making on every S7 that it sells outside the US, where it uses its own Exynos 8890 chipset which should cost even less than the Snapdragon 820.

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?

Galaxy Tab S2 9.7"

 

We already posted News about the Upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 line-up which is rumored to be released during this year (2015) with new Super AMOLED displays. We published the full list of leaked specifications of the 9.7" variant.

 

Today, We got another leak claims that the Dimensions of the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7" variant will be 237.17 x 169.58 x 5.5 mm. The rumor also suggests a similar design to the Galaxy S6.

 

 

 

 

According to these rumored Dimensions, the Galaxy Tab S2 will be only about 5.5mm thin across its waist. If this rumor is true, this will be one of Samsung's thinnest tablets ever made, it will even be the the World's slimmest tablet. At the moment, the Dell Venue 8 7000 holds this title with a waist of just 6.0 mm, followed by the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet at 6.1 mm.

About a month after its initial debut, Google's latest mobile operating system, AKA, Marshmallow run on less than 1% of Android phones. According to newly released developer stats from Google, Android 6.0 Marshmallow has found its way onto just 0.3 percent of Android handsets so far.


The data is collected from signals sent to the Play Store, which helps identify what Android version is on handsets or tablets. Lollipop (5.0 and 5.1), on the other hand, accounts for nearly 26 percent, it is worth noting that Android 5.1 Lollipop jumped to more than 10 percent, perhaps implying that a lot of smartphones are still shipping that run this Android version, while Kit Kat (4.4) is the most popular version with about 38 percent of the total.


Interestingly, while Android 4.4 KitKat, which arrived in October 2013, remained on top of the list, which got 37.8 percent. It ticked downward, however, signifying people might already be shifting to Android 5.1 and 6.0.


The numbers likewise suggest that, presently, there are more devices that run Marshmallow OS over those that are powered by Android 2.2 Froyo (0.2 percent), which began rolling out in May 2010.


Android 6.0 Marshmallow first started rolling out to Nexus devices on Oct. 5. That includes the Nexus 5, 6, 7, 9, and Nexus Player. Other new phones with the OS include the HTC One A9.  Officially announced in August, Android 6.0 "is the sweetest, smartest Android version yet.  One of the best features called Now on Tap as well as battery life improvements, more privacy and security controls, and easier device setup.

Google has published the latest Android platform distribution shares, unveiling that Marshmallow - which is the newest variant of its Android mobile operating system - is now powering 0.7% of all active Android devices across the globe. That's marginally more than the December figure of 0.5%.


Lollipop in the meantime got 3% increment in share, touching a total of 32.6% this month. But, KitKat retains the top spot with 36.1% Android market share, though there is a little bit decline from the 36.6% share reported in last month.


You can see screenshot above for the summary of the change in market share.

play

 

If you Search for Apps on the Google Play store you probably get results with many low rated Apps along with High rated Apps in the middle, Google is a search company is the first place so they decided to do something about it. Google just added a new filter to the web play Store that lets you restrict results to only those apps with 4 or more stars. That should clear out a lot of the junk.

 

play

 

The new filter is in a dropdown at the top of the screen when you limit searches to apps only (Games too). Just click the "4 stars +" option in the rating dropdown and you're done. Maybe more rating categories will be added later, but this is probably the most useful.

 

I can't think of many instances I'd want to include apps that get less than 4 stars in a search. Head to Google Play Website and try it out.

Limefuel Lite is a 15,000 mAh Dual-USB Battery Charger Pack With LCD Screen which will cost you only $34.99. Just think about what you could charge with a 15,000 mAh battery. Flagship Android smartphones pack a 3,000 mAh battery on average, so the Limefuel would provide about 5 charges.

 

And because this unit has dual-USB ports, with 1A and 2.1A output, you could charge your tablet with it, but also your Bluetooth earphones and speakers, Android Wear watch, MiFi router, and more.

 

The Limefuel Lite also packs a handy LED flash for those power outages or dark nights, and an LCD screen to show you exactly how much battery you have left and which ports you are using. It measures 5.8 × 2.8 × 0.9 inches and weighs only 12 ounces, making it close to the size of 3 Galaxy S5s stacked on top of each other-not bad!

We came across a Japan-only Mobile Phone with odd design. Meet the Heart 401AB a feature phone whose shape matches the name it sports.

As impossible as it might sound these days, the handset you see above can only handle phone calls there's no SMS functionality or internet connectivity on board. Heart 401AB will be available in March on the Japanese carrier Ymobile (which is very close to our own brand name "YouMobile"). The latter utilizes PHS network, which is mostly for voice calls.

The specs of the phone are headed by a 128×36 dot display, phonebook with 100 entries, and support for hands-free handset. Heart 401AB will ship with heart-shaped charger that's as gaudy as the phone itself. In case you still find the device a tad too subtle, a Sailor Moon edition will offer even more visual flare.

z lollipop

 

Sony Mobile made an announcement today regarding the official Android 5.0 Lollipop updates for its Xperia devices, sadly this announcement brings some BAD NEWS to few Sony users, as the company will focus only on its main flagship "Xperia Z" series.

 

Sony surprised everyone by stating via its official Twitter account that the Lollipop update will be released only for the the "Xperia Z" series devices. That means, the Xperia E1, E2, C3, M2, M2 Aqua, T3, and T2 Ultra will not be getting the Lollipop update officially.

 

 

 

 

This decision will affect the sales of its current non-Z series devices on the market, like the Xperia M4 Aqua for example, as these devices may not get future updates. However, Xperia users that won't get the update can still flash custom Lollipop ROMs but this will void their warranty.
