Now that we all know that the LeEco Le Pro3 is on the verge of release, LeEco seems to be all set to unveil two new phones once again. The company has been really at it in 2016 with new releases hitting markets around the world every few months or so. Nevertheless, one cannot disagree that they do bring absolutely top end hardware at unbelievable prices. For example, the LeEco Le Pro3 is coming with a Snapdragon 821 SoC but is expected to cost only around $340 or less. Unfortunately, we don't have much info about the two mysterious upcoming phones from the Chinese OEM, except the image that you see above.


The good thing is that the image does reveal a curved display and if it is truly that then we could see the first curved screen LeEco smartphone in November. On the other hand, rumors around a LeEco smartphone with 8GB of RAM have been flying around a lot lately. Could it be that the rumoured Le 2S with 8 gigabytes of RAM is about to make an appearance next month with a curved display? We certainly hope so!

Quite a few of you may argue that smartphones don't really need 6GB of RAM and it might even be true in some cases. However, the fact is that they are here and some months down the line, even more models with 6GB RAM will start making appearances. That being said, if you want to feel the absolute sense of supremacy that comes with owning one of these beasts, here are the ones that we would recommend.


OnePlus 3 ($399)



There is no two way about it, the OnePlus 3 is a real flagship killer with its beastly specs and the Oxygen OS, which runs pretty close to stock Android. Apart from the 6GB of RAM, the OnePlus 3 also sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chip (2.15GHz), Adreno 530 GPU, 3,000mAh battery, brilliant 16-mp/8-mp rear and front cameras, a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display and 64GB of non-expandable storage. At this price, you will probably have a hard time finding a better phone to be honest.


Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe ($499 for 64GB/6GB)



The Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe is another flagship smartphone with specs similar to the OnePlus 3, but a slightly larger 5.7-inch 1080p display. The beautifully made phone feels as premium as it looks. Internal storage options include 64GB/128GB/256GB variants, but the Zenfone 3 Deluxe also offers a micro-SD card slot. It has a larger rear camera sensor of 23-megapixels as compared to the OnePlus 3, but we all know that megapixels do not determine the actual quality of the photograph.


LeEco LeMax 2 (Around $400 for 64GB/6GB)



This is the only smartphone on this list that sports a 5.7-inch Quad HD display and it instantaneously makes this a winner in the display department. Based on Android Marshmallow 6.0 and LeEco's own EUI, the Le Max 2 is a beautiful device. However, it doesn't support expandable storage, nor does it have a headphone jack unfortunately. The 21-megapixel camera is quite a capable one and the front camera is better than most of the competition. The 3,000 mAh battery is a decent performer, considering that it powers the flagship SD 820 CPU, along with the Quad HD 5.7-inch panel.

Looking for a phone upgrade? Not satisfied with the mobile releases of 2016? Well, that's not a problem as 2017 will be promising in terms of new mobile releases! Only a few more days or months to wait, until the mobile beasts of 2017 are revealed. Let's see what 2017 has in reserve for us.


Once you go apple, you never go back! Apple will be back with the IPhone 8 in 2017, to celebrate its 10th anniversary impressively. Planned to be on the market in September 2017, IPhone 8 and IPhone 8 Plus, could be the most fundamental up to date phones. Apple will be making changes to the phones' designs and the software. In terms of design, the IPhone 8 is planned to be a single sheet of glass with an edge-to-edge OLED screen. Also, it would seem that at least one release of Apple's IPhones for 2017, will have a glass body. The Touch ID will be hidden within the glass, and the Home Button will be non-existent.


HTC lovers will not be disappointed as well! HTC is planning to release the HTC 11 in March/April 2017. An early leak confirmed that the mobile might have a Snapdragon 835 processor, RAM of 8 GB, a storage capacity of 256 GB and a 5.5in Quad- HD Screen. That is indeed lots of expectation... Let's hope that rumours have it right!


As for LG, it is rumoured that the G6 will be released in late 2017, and it could adopt a glass rear and front. The most interesting features it can have is an iris scanner that uses a similar sensor as the phone's front camera, which will be awesome.


Samsung will be back stronger in 2017, to mend its reputation after the Galaxy Note 7 crisis. The Samsung Galaxy s8 has been scheduled to be shown to the world in February 2017 during the MCW tradeshow. Rumours has it that the design will be changed, and the home button might be gone. It could as well be the fastest phone with a top of the range processor.


It looks like technology lovers will have a hard choice to make in 2017 while buying a mobile phone, with the possible new releases. However, you don't really need a top-notch phone to have some fun online. All you need is a phone with internet connection... and you can enjoy at magicalvegas.com anytime and anywhere! At Magical Vegas, you can sign up or log in anytime or any day you want, using either a tablet, a mobile phone or a PC.


That's not all. Given that the site is responsive, you can play your games using any type of devices. Despite being on a mobile phone, you will still enjoy the great graphics and beautiful designs of the game, and of the site. Golden Jungle, Cluedo Spinning Detectives, Troll Hunters and Lucky Tree are some of the newest games you can try now at Magical Vegas!



It's Christmas and we have less than a week left in the year now. Given that no new smartphones will be released this year anymore, let us take a quick look at the three absolute best smartphones that were launched in 2016. Let us know if you are using any of these beasts in the comments section below. Keep in mind that phones such as the Mi Mix were kept out of the list because they are simply not available anywhere outside China as of now.


OnePlus 3T



The OnePlus 3 was an excellent flagship device with the all-powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC and a whopping 6GB of RAM, available at half the price of most flagships from big boys like Samsung or LG. The OnePlus 3T keeps everything that was brilliant about the OnePlus 3 and adds an even more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC, 13% more battery (3,450mAh), a much better front camera sensor and a 128GB option at a modest price of $439 (64GB).


Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge



The S7 and S7 Edge are a bit old now, but they still are among the absolute best that 2016 had to offer. The curved Quad High Definition Super AMOLED display on the S7 Edge is quite simply beautiful and arguably the best in the business.


Google Pixel Phones



When it comes to software and actual user experience, you just cannot beat the Pixel and the Pixel XL. Owners of these two smartphones will experience the epitome of what the latest Android OS has to offer. It also helps that these are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chip, beautiful AMOLED displays and Google Assistant; which is arguably the most enhanced virtual assistant ever to make a public debut.

We use them to keep connected with friends and family, to navigate the world, find a date, take photos, watch videos, and play games at one of the high-end pay by phone bill casino sites, all at the swipe of a finger. Reports now show that more people use their mobile devices to have a bet or wager online, and because these online sites are operated under strict rules and regulations, and have to be licenced to run, increasing numbers are turning to online sites in preference to going out, for instance, to a bricks and mortar casino.


There is no doubt that the Smartphone has changed our lives yet we are still only starting to understand the full impact that this new technology is having on our lives, our relationships and the lives of our children.


Infact, there has been a great deal of research carried out on Smartphone usage, but we are still only scraping at the surface of how this use interfaces with our relationships. Questions like: Is the smartphone helping us be better connected, or is it taking us away from our relationships, and does using the smartphone help us to take a few minutes out from our busy lives, or is it distracting us from real problems, need to be addressed.


What should always be remembered is that the Smartphone is not the real problem as it is actually a pretty impressive tool, what is the issues is how we use that tool, how we use the computer we can carry about in our pocket or bag that is the real issue.


If you ask most adolescents if they could live without their phone, the answer would be a resounding no, but that answer is not just limited to adolescents as many adults would give the same reply.


Take Australia as an example, almost 85% own a smartphone, that is around 16 million people just in one country, and Australia is only the fourth biggest nation of smartphone users in the world, our love affair with the smartphone is well and truly established, so much so that it is the 'must have' fashion accessory to have, and there is even phubbing to contend with.


'Phubbing' (for those who do not know) is the act of snubbing your partner in favour of being on your smartphone and we have all witnessed it (as well as doing it.) How many times can we go into a restaurant and see a couple hardly speaking to each other over the table whilst they are texting away or taking pics of the superb meal, they are out enjoying on Instagram?


Knowing when and when not to use a smartphone, or where is appropriate to take pictures is one thing, but being able to put down that mobile device is a completely different matter.




If you own an older Microsoft smartphone that is still running on Windows 8.1, things are about to change as a Windows 10 update for your smartphone is probably on the way already. This is not beta, but a fully fledged final version of the upgrade that has been in the making for months. Although Microsoft has officially started rolling it out to its smartphones around the world, not all phones will be receiving the update at the same time. Also note that if your Windows phone was not manufactured by Microsoft (or Nokia) but some other company, there will be an additional delay.


Check if your phone is in the list mentioned below:

  • Lumia 435
  • Lumia 430
  • Lumia 638 1GB
  • Lumia 636 1GB
  • Lumia 635 1GB
  • Lumia 540
  • Lumia 535
  • Lumia 532
  • Lumia 830
  • Lumia 735
  • Lumia 730
  • Lumia 640XL
  • Lumia 640
  • Lumia 930
  • Lumia 1520
  • BLU Win HD w510u
  • BLU Win HD LTE x150q
  • MCJ Madosma Q501


If you found your model in the list above, then go to the Windows Store and download the application called Microsoft's Update Advisor. Use it to find out if your update is on the way and turn on the option Enable Windows 10 Upgrade. Select Next and it will prompt something like ready to upgrade. Once you see that prompt, tap on Done to finish the setup. You can now go to Settings>Phone Update>Check for Updates to see if the upgrade has arrived yet. When it does actually arrive, you will see the notification automatically now.

4gb dram mobile

 

Samsung Mobile announced that it began the mass production of its latest 20nm 4GB LPDDR4 Mobile DRAM memory chips. Using the 20nm manufacturing process, these LPDDR4 chips will be reportedly 50% faster than the fastest LPDDR3 memory on the market, while also consuming 40% less power (1.1 volts).

 

The 4GB RAM chips will be ready to debut in Smartphones and Tablets by Late 2015. The chances of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 rocking 4GB of RAM is quite high.

Nokia seems to be over. Sadly, the Finish Giant won't be releasing any Smartphones anymore, this was confirmed by Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri at a recent analyst meeting in London. Nokia will still consumer products to its fans.

 

Nokia, the former biggest phonemaker in the world, could get its return as soon as tomorrow Nokia just teased that it has been working on something. It will show it off or talk about it at the #Slush14 startup and entrepreneur meetup that starts tomorrow in Helsinki and is said to gather some 10 thousand people.

 

The teaser itself shows a new device but we can only guess what it is a HTPC, a TV, home automation tech? Hopefully we're going to know all about it tomorrow.

 

It's hard to imagine Nokia not making any smartphones or phones in general but we'd wager a guess that it's not all over for the company, despite what its CEO reassures us of now. CEOs change and so do plans in the tech world and Nokia is only forbidden to make Nokia phones until December,31st of 2015.

Nokia Android

 

Rumors about Nokia coming back to the smartphone market is confirmed. It's True, Nokia will make a strong return to the Market with a line-up of Android smartphones Next year (2016).

 

Nokia sold its device business to Microsoft a year ago and it signed a non-compete clause preventing the company from producing smartphones under the Nokia brand until December 31, 2015 and feature phones under the Nokia brand for a decade.

 

Nokia N1

 

Nokia used wisely these non-compete clauses and outed the powerful Nokia N1 tablet early this year. The N1 is designed by Nokia, including its Z Launcher for Android, but the rights for the branding, manufacturing, marketing and distributions were licensed to Foxconn.

 

The President of Nokia China confirmed Nokia is working on Android powered smartphones, which will be probably manufactured in factories in Sichuan, China and will be launched in 2016. He also sheds some light on company's future the Nokia's R&D center will permanently relocate to Sichuan, China.

Last year Google released two nexus devices at the same time - Nexus 5S made by LG and Nexus 6P made by Huawei. It seems this type of launch has become quite a convention and Google is supposed to do it this year too.


Yesterday, a rumor about about the new Nexus devices surfaced. As per the rumor, HTC is will be the manufacturer of the two new Nexus devices to be released in the later part of 2016. Right not much is known about the two devices. But, one will feature a 5-inch screen, and the other will have a 5.5-inch display. Today, ROM developer @LlabTooFeR unveiled nuggets of new info about the two smartphones in a tweet .




The developer posed that the codename for the 5-inch Nexus phone is T50 and for the 5.5-inch model codename is the T55. It is quite evident that the codenames are curated from the screen size of the devices. Going by the history of correct tips released by the developer, this tweet also seems reliable.


The Nexus One, the very first Nexus device was built by HTC back in 2010. The Taiwanese company will also be manufacturing the Nexus 9 tablet. Apparently Huawei was also trying to create an entry for itself in the run for building this year's Nexus devices, but finally HTC won the deal.

It has hardly been a few days since we heard rumors of HTC being this year's manufacturer for Google's Nexus line of smartphones, and we already have a solid source who's confirming the rumor. According to reports, a developer in HTC has leaked the alleged codenames for the upcoming Nexus devices.




If LlabTooFeR on Twitter is to be believed, then there will be two versions of the Nexus, one with a 5-inch screen and the other with a larger 5.5-inch display. The more conservative 5-inch phone will supposedly be named the T50 while its bigger phablet version will be called the T55. Apart from this, no other information about the smartphones was shared.


Google and HTC have a bit of history together as HTC was the first manufacturer that they had collaborated with, when the first Nexus phone was launched back in 2010; the Nexus One. In fact, the business relationships between the two companies were once again renewed when they launched the Nexus 9 tablet about two years ago in 2014. HTC's renewed affiliation with Google is actually very good news for the company, as it has been suffering losses for a while now. Will this tie up be enough for HTC to regain its stature in the smartphone industry? We will find out soon enough.

HTC

 

First confirmed News from the Taiwanese giant. HTC will be revealing Two major New Flagship Smartphones on March,1st at the MWC 2015 event. Many expect the company to announce the One M9 and One M9 Plus, as successors to last year's One M8.

 

The latest leaked press image (via @evleaks) shows two new, never-before-seen HTC smartphones that have similar design traits to other recent phones from the company. They appear to have metal chassis, center-mounted front cameras, and HTC's signature front-facing BoomSound speakers in a similar configuration to last year's mid-range Desire Eye. The only visible difference between the two phones is what appears to be a fingerprint scanner below the HTC logo on one of them. Other leaks have referred to this particular model as the "Hima Ultra" which will be called on the market "HTC One M9 PLUS", the other phone's codename is just "Hima" which will be the regular HTC One M9.

 

M9 and M9 Plus

 

We don't know what the Plus version extra features is yet... It is said this "Ultra" model will have HTC's DuoCamera feature and a fingerprint scanner and may just be destined for the Chinese market. Other specs that have been reported include a 5-inch, 1920 x 1080 display, UltraPixel front-facing camera, 20-megapixel rear camera, and a Snapdragon 810 processor.

 

Stay Tuned for more Leaks!

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.

Although the Galaxy Note 7 is not exactly enjoying a good reputation right now due to the faulty and hazardous batteries that some of the units are shipped with, there is no denying that the iris-scanner which the smartphone boasts of is one of its kind at the moment. The good news is that according to DJ Koh, the iris-scanners will also be seen on mid-range devices from Samsung as it becomes more cost-effective to do so, with time. He also mentions that he was personally associated with its development and in the coming months, Samsung will concentrate towards keeping the technology secure from all kind of privacy or security threats that it may encounter.


Here are some excerpts from the president of Samsung Mobiles speech at the "Unpacked" event press conference in New York.


"We did not put iris scanning in the flagship model just to do 'unlock'. In the long run, through third parties and API, we want to connect it with apps. For mobile banking, we are thinking of applying iris scanning for large transactions, and are already talking with banks in some countries,"


"Through continued cost cutting, iris scanning can trickle down to mid-end models,"


"There is a view that Android is weak in security compared to its competitor and we want to expand software security that can overcome this image"

The fact that Samsung is working on a smartphone that will sport a foldable display is old news now, but we got to know just recently that two such phones are in development instead of one. Bloomberg reports that the first device will fold in half from the middle, much in the same way as a "cosmetic compact." The second device will initially appear to be a smartphone with a 5-inch display, but can be unfolded to add 3 more inches to the display real estate, making the screen a tablet-sized 8-inch one.


We have been hearing about the "Project Valley" for a long time now and rumors had previously suggested a 2017 release date. The latest report affirms those rumors as it indicates that we might be able to see the foldable phone at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona. We are excited to find out what Samsung comes up with, when it's released. It sounds amazing to be able to carry around an 8-inch display in your pocket, but we will have to wait and see, if the manufacturer manages to deliver a device that actually works as well in real life scenarios as it seems would do, on paper. What do you think about the foldable smartphone?

Just when people were starting to think that the "Made for Samsung" program which Samsung had announced at the CES in January was scrapped, the Korean company just declared their first endeavor in that line. As it turns out, Samsung's partner in this particular initiative is The Weather Channel and together, they have launched the first application within the Made for Samsung program. The application is exclusively available for the Note 5, the S6 Edge+ and the S7 Edge.


The app offers brand new features, among which, one in particular sounds quite interesting. Apparently, the Smart Weather alarm clock will wake up the user before point, if it decides that the weather conditions might delay the user from being ready in time. Other features of the application include Floating Shortcuts, in-app live wallpapers that are customizable and Edge Alerts for updating the user with the latest changes in weather conditions on the Edge panel.


The application is only available via Galaxy Apps and in case you have one of the three supported smartphones, check it out by searching for "Weather Channel" within the store. If however, you cannot see the application or cannot download it in spite of having the right handset; chances are that it is probably not yet available in your locale. In that case, you can download the APK file directly and give it a try, if you so want.

As per reports of Q1 2016, the Galaxy S7 is a huge hit for Samsung. In just March, Samsung has sold off around 10 million Galaxy S7 devices and that alone is quite a milestone. As if that was not enough, reports suggest that in the first quarter of the year, Samsung has managed to sell double the number of smartphones as Apple.


Global leader in the smartphone business and its market share just became even bigger. Samsung now holds 27.8% of the market after selling 81 million units in Q1, 2016 alone. Apple is a distant second with a market share of 14.4% and a Q1 sales number of 42 million units. Huawei (9.3%) is in the third position after Apple right now, followed by Lenovo (5.8%), Xiaomi (5.5%) and LG (5.1%) respectively.


The Korean electronics giant's market share increased by 2.5% from last year's Q4, but the 5.7% increase from Q1, 2015 seems even more impressive. If you are in any doubt regarding the massive success of the Galaxy S7, just take in the fact that the difference in market share between Samsung and Apple was just 1.2% in Q4, 2015 and it skyrocketed to 13% after Q1, 2016! As the S7 and S7 Edge were released in March, the math isn't that hard to figure out. It just gets to show that if you release a product that delivers in every front, even a global decline in the smartphone business cannot really stop you from making immense profits.

Foldable displays were showcased by Samsung earlier but smartphones based on that technology never really hit the market in 2016 as many expected them to. The famous Samsung Project Valley is supposedly a development that involves the task of building a foldable smartphone. Rumors surrounding it suggested in 2015 that Samsung will launch their first foldable smartphone in January, 2016. As that did not happen, the rumors had come down a few notches since.


New life was breathed into the rumors when a fresh report from South Korea came in a while ago. It suggested that Samsung will start the production of foldable displays on an industrial scale by the end of 2016 itself. It also adds that these displays are for a device that will be powered by either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 or 820, along with 3GB of RAM. Apparently, the 7-inch tablet-sized display of the device will turn into a more manageable 5-inch one when necessary and vice-versa.


There are quite a few leaked pictures from Project Valley that gives us a an impression of what this device might look like when it comes out, but the originality of those snaps are not beyond doubt. Nonetheless, we will hopefully know what exactly is going on in a few months time.

According to Mel Wells, who is popular as a writer for fitness and health in the UK, the selfies taken from a Samsung Galaxy S7 may make you prettier by removing original blemishes from your face in the photo. It removed her freckles from the selfie she took as the S7 has the Beauty mode turned on by default. Apparently, she did not appreciate the little airbrushing that the camera app did automatically and had this to say.


"This means everyone who gets a new Samsung phone and flicks the front camera on is automatically being told ‘Hi, we're Samsung and we think you look way better when we automatically airbrush your selfies for you."


This have hurt the sentiments of a few who are against the worldwide marketing ploy to trap customers into thinking that they don't look good enough and need some sort of a product to look better. However, since it is just a setting that you can turn off at will, many may fail to see the point of turning such trivial matters into issues. What do you think? Do you like it when selfies look prettier than you actually are or do you think it's just better if they reflect your original self as closely as possible?

Most people don't know about it and even the ones that do, forget it at times. The fact is that most computing devices benefit in performance after rebooting. Therefore, the trick is to restart your devices at least every once in a while to make sure that they are running at optimum level. In case you often forget to perform this step, Samsung actually has an in-built system in its smartphones and tablets that allow the user to set fixed intervals for their device to reboot on its own.


Unfortunately, very few people know about this feature as it is not very easy to find, unless you know where to look. If your device was released in 2015 or thereafter and it came with at least Android lollipop 5.0 out of the box, then it probably has this feature. Go to Settings>Backup and reset>Device management>Auto restart and turn the button on the top right corner On. The default time for auto restarting is set at 3 AM on every Monday, but you can edit it to suit your needs and convenience.


If your device meets the criterion mentioned above and yet you are unable to see this option then it is probably a locked device and the carrier has removed the option by default

 



Nexus 5X was rolled out to the market as a part of Google's 7th gen Nexus smartphones (along with the Nexus 6P), in October 2015 as the descendant of the Nexus 5 from 2013.


Both Nexus 5 and the 5X are made by LG, but 5X is way ahead of what the predecessor was at the time of launch: though it is established that the Nexus 5 was a high-end smartphone, the Nexus 5X has been built as per 2015 and 2016 standards, like of a mid-range device. In addition to this, at launch, the Nexus 5X will cost more than 5. Here are the reasons that make this phone the best mid-range smartphone currently available in the US:


  • The Nexus 5X is powered by stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow (now upgraded to 6.0.1) which will give you unparalleled Google experience

  • The fingerprint scanner, known as the Nexus Imprint is the fastest scanner out there.

  • Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P also sport the same rear camera sensor: a 12.3 MP Sony IMX377 one with more-than-conventional pixels (1.55 μm), laser auto focus, and 4K video recording.

  • It has got USB Type-C port, the 2700 mAh non-removable battery that gets fully charged in an hour and hour; enough to last for a day.

  • Google Nexus 5X boasts a 5.2-inch IPS screen with 1080 x 1920 pixels and 423 ppi, which is quite sharp.

  • The 16GB variant will cost $299 and the 32GB variant would cost $349.


 



Even though it was a disaster when a few of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones started to catch fire all over the world, many have applauded the Korean electronics giant on their decision to recall all the 2.5 million smartphones that they had shipped. However, as is often the case in such scenarios, some of the customers have decided to disregard the warnings issued by flight authorities, tech-experts and the manufacturer themselves. While it is questionable what would prompt such negligence, in spite of the free refund/replacement scheme employed by Samsung, many customers are of the opinion that the incidents are far too low and in between to be concerned about it.


Nevertheless, Samsung has decided to limit the maximum charging point to 60% of the Note 7's full battery capacity in an OTA update that will be released shortly in South Korea. This news was confirmed when the Seoul Shinmun (a popular South Korean newspaper) published the message from Samsung on its front page. This is a temporary fix until all the customers turn in their smartphones for free replacements, which should begin by the end of the month. According to Yonhap News Agency, the same update could also make its way to all other nations as well, but we will have to wait and see. In the meanwhile, we advise you to stop using the Galaxy Note 7 and get it replaced/refunded as soon as possible. Although some have pointed out that the chances of your Note 7 exploding are similar to that of winning the lottery, this is one lottery that you may not want to win!

Amidst the biggest mess that the company has ever had to clean up by recalling the 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7 devices shipped all over the world, Samsung is already devising a strategy to let its customers know that their new upcoming batch of Note 7 smartphones will have a safe battery. Samsung will soon start selling the Note 7 once again, as soon as replacements for the potentially dangerous devices are ready of course. The safe new smartphones will sport a green colored battery icon in the UI, while the older phones will continue to sport the white battery icon that has been the norm for Samsung until this incident.


This news report by Cho Mu-Hyun from ZDNet has created a bit of confusion as well because many users who have already replaced their Note 7 with a new one are still seeing the old white battery icon. Therefore it is not quite clear at the moment whether the green icon will only be implemented in Korea or if it will be an international icon of safety. We will know more soon as Samsung makes an official statement.


Saikat Kar (tech-enthusiast)



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?

Galaxy alpha

 

Samsung is very proud of its Galaxy Alpha, so that the company today released an Infographic which tries to convince the world that the Alpha sets "a new standard for smartphone design".

 

The infographic reminds us that the Galaxy Alpha comes with a diamond-cut metal frame that makes it durable, in addition to a smooth back that should provide a firm grip. The handset's five color versions aren't forgotten (Black, White, Silver, Gold, Blue), and neither are its main features: an octa-core Exynos processor, 12 MP rear camera, 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and Android 4.4 KitKat. Check out the Infographic below!

While it's definitely not the first time that we are hearing about an upcoming foldable smartphone from Samsung, the latest report from ET News has recently added a few details to the speculations. Samsung may at first, launch a dual-screen device which will have two flat flexible displays on each side of it. Whether or not the second foldable smartphone is introduced to the market later will depend on how well the first product is received by the customers. If the report is to be believed, then the twin-display smartphone will hit markets by 2017 in small amounts and in select markets around the world.


As the second part of the company's two step introduction plan, a foldable smartphone with a single flexible display will later be released in the year 2018 (considering that the first one turns out to be a success). This news reminds us of the Samsung Galaxy Round, the smartphone which featured a curved OLED panel. Unfortunately, the Galaxy Round wasn't popular enough to see a more widespread release than its initial limited manufacturing in 2013.

After years of speculations and planning, it looks like Samsung is ready to finally release smartphones with foldable displays into the market. According to a report by The Korea Herald, there will be some major reshuffling in Samsung's mobile communications unit and IT department by March, following which, the final decision in the matter will be taken. Most reports are suggesting that Samsung will be manufacturing and shipping out as many as 100,000 units of the 7-inch foldable smartphone by Q3 of this very year.


Not to be outdone, LG reportedly has plans of its own to ship out 100,000 units of a foldable smartphone model that they have been developing for the last few years. It should happen by the fourth quarter of 2017, according to the rumors. Additionally, LG may also start selling the foldable displays to other smartphone manufacturers, namely the likes of Huawei and even Apple. It will be interesting to see which of the two Korean tech-giants come out with a better foldable smartphone, given that these rumors hold true of course. Also, we will have to wait and find out if Samsung releases the model with displays on both the rear and the back or the one with just a single flexible display. They may eventually release both versions, but it is likely that we will see just one of them in 2017.

The Mobile World Congress is the biggest event of the year when it comes to smartphones, tablets and just about any other mobile consumer products. It's almost upon us as February 27 draws near, but do you know what to expect from the smartphone manufacturers this year at Barcelona? We have a pretty good idea, so here are the most anticipated devices that we could be getting a glimpse of in a few days.


HTC Ocean



If rumors are true, the HTC Ocean will be operated entirely via voice commands, gestures and of course, touch.


LG G6



Although the G6 will probably not be sporting the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 flagship chipset, it is expected to sport the world's first 18:9 ratio borderless display with a resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels.


Blackberry Mercury



TCL Communications are making the handsets for Blackberry nowadays and this is going to be their third handset after the collaboration. The Mercury will sport the trademark Blackberry keyboard and a fingerprint scanner.


Moto G5 and G5 Plus



The cameras on the Moto G4 Plus were simply the best in the mid-range segment and the G5 and G5 Plus are rumoured to sport even better sensors. We will have to wait and see what other improvements Lenovo brings in with the two new handsets.


There are also the Sony Xperia X, the Nokia P1 and the Huawei P10 that's incoming in a few days and we are pretty excited about them too. Which ones are you looking forward to the most? In case you were looking for the Galaxy S8 on this list, we are sorry to inform you that Samsung has confirmed that the S8 will be withheld from the Mobile World Congress this year.

Although I always prefer my devices to be unlocked, there are those that benefit from the low EMI plans and bundled offers that carriers have in place for expensive smartphones, especially in the US. However, many do not like the way Verizon or AT&T logos are stamped on their phones as it takes away from the phone's initial design language. This would particularly be a travesty for the S8 and S8+, given how aesthetically and minimally they are designed by default. That won't be a problem with the two flagships from Samsung this year though. Samsung has made sure that no ugly carrier logos will be messing with their bezel-less smartphone's aesthetics. Just like the iPhone, physical branding won't be a part of any Galaxy S8 and S8+, irrespective of where you or whom you buy your phones from.


We were actually expecting something like this from the smartphone giant, given how much Samsung has sacrificed to achieve a clean, immersive look for the two phones this year. Apart from axing the iconic Physical Home button, they have not put their own logo in front of the device, which is a first for any and all Samsung smartphones and tablets. However, the Samsung logo does make its way to the back of both devices, unlike the carrier logos which are gone for good.

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.

A Samsung employee who is only known by his surname "Lee" at the moment, apparently was in a bad gambling debt which amounted to somewhere around $800,000! Just as any other logical person would handle a debt of that size, he decided to steal 8,474 Samsung mobile phones (which are worth a total of $711,000) from Samsung's head office in Suwon, Gyeonggi. If you have not caught on to my sarcasm yet, then let me affirm that it is indeed sarcasm and stealing from your employer or anyone else is definitely not the logical solution to any problem!


The disabled man had apparently started stealing test units meant for developers from way back in the December of 2014. In fact his operation was active till November last year; a timeframe in which he managed to steal an astounding 8,474 Samsung test units. Lee used to pawn these stolen smartphones via a used phone reseller and before long, these handsets, which were never even meant to be on sale, were being sold and used in Vietnam. As Samsung caught a whiff of the con job going on here, the matter was reported to the police. After months of investigation, Lee has finally been found and charged. Although he is clearly a reckless gambler and a thief of massive proportions, one cannot help but be amazed at the efficiency with he had run the con job for all these years without ever being caught once.

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission has just recalled 10,000+ Galaxy Note 4 handsets for issues related to the battery. If that sounds familiar then it's because of the fact that about year ago, something similar happened with the Galaxy Note 7. While this doesn't sound good for Samsung initially, a little more probe into the matter reveals that Samsung is actually not at fault for this one.


It seems that some AT&T refurbished Galaxy Note 4 smartphones contained batteries in them that are prone to overheating. As the batteries were not made or supplied by Samsung, they are off the hook for this one. In fact, the heating batteries are counterfeit units which made their way into some of the AT&T refurbished Galaxy Note 4 devices through unknown means. As of now, there have been no reports of fire, explosion, damage or injury.


The Galaxy Note 7 disaster has been one of Samsung's biggest messes recently, but they have come out of that much better than most people expected them to. Of course, the real test of the impact that the infamous handset had left on the minds of Samsung's customers will commence once the Galaxy Note 8 goes on sale next month.

After years of speculations, we finally have something official to speak about the topic. During the press conference in Korea where the Galaxy Note 8 was launched a few days ago, President of Samsung Mobiles, DJ Koh went on and said the following lines.


"We have a plan to adopt a foldable display in our roadmap. We are currently addressing some technological hurdles to commercialize such a device. We will launch a foldable device when we are fully ready, and we are aiming to do so next year..."


Granted, it's only a plan according to the statement, but it isn't very unlikely that this plan will finally come into fruition in 2018. The reason I think so is because he said it out loud in a press conference. Would the President of Samsung Mobiles have declared it to the press if it wasn't all but confirmed? That would be unwise and the CEO of Samsung Mobiles is not unwise! The question is, will Samsung be launching a new line of handsets with foldable displays or will they just incorporate it into their existing flagship lineups? What do you think?

Check Point is a security farm that has recently unveiled the alarming fact that over 900 million smartphones around the world are susceptible to hacker attacks due to what is known as the QuadRooter vulnerability. If you are wondering what is QuadRooter, it is actually a short name for four vulnerabilities that are currently plaguing Android handsets that have Qualcomm chipsets inside. Through exploitation of the susceptibilities, hackers can gain root access to these devices, if the user is tricked into installing a malware onto his/her phone that does not require any apparently visible permissions to do the harm.


On reporting this issue to Qualcomm in April, 2016, the company acknowledged the high risk threat and has since developed and provided the necessary software patches to the smartphone manufacturers. The potentially affected devices include the biggest brands and their flagships in the market, like the Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 6, HTC 10, OnePlus 3, LG G5, Lenovo Moto X 2016 and BlackBerry DTEK50. All handsets that have the August security patches from Google installed on them are protected against three of the susceptibilities, but the fourth one is still to be addressed in the upcoming September patch. Check if your device is a part of the 900 million club by downloading and running the QuadRooter Scanner application from the Play Store.

There have been a lot speculations about Apple's plan to get rid of the headphone port in the next smartphone - the iPhone 7. Recently in China there was an announcement of three devices without any headphone port and they all run on Android.


LeEco, previously LeTV, yesterday unveiled the new Le 2 series, showcasing the Le 2, Le 2Pro and Le Max2, none of which feature the widely used 3.5mm headphone jack. All of these devices will come with USB Type-C digital headphones via the charging port.


This would result in improved audio quality, as digital headphones are based on lossless technology. The negative point is that it won't be possible for anyone to listen to music while the phone is getting charged (something that most of the folks do while working). That means although the USB Type-C headphones are nice to have feature, consumers might end up paying for a pair of Bluetooth headphones.


Until the introduction of LeEco's two new pairs of USB Type-C headphones - an in-ear variant and over-ear set - the JBL Reflect Aware C sports earbuds made it official alongside the HTC 10 that they were the only USB Type-C headphones available (till now they are not in the market). To conclude we can safely say that this trend might set the direction for next gen smartphones.

superMHL

 

4K is already 2015 standard... What about 8K ? MHL Consortium is looking to future-proof its TV-out connector with the new superMHL standard. Laughing in the face of 4K TVs everywhere the new connector can output 8K video @120 frames per second and 48-bit color depth. Our condolences to internal storage and microSD cards alike.


The superMHL connector supports HDR imagery and can power multiple display, up to 8, from a single source. When connecting to multiple devices (TV, disc player, AV receiver), it can unify their controls so you only need one remote. The connector can practically operate a small cinema with support with Dolby Atmos, DTS-UHD and 3D audio support.

 

superMHL

 

And because outputting [email protected] can't be easy, the connector will also supply 40W of power. To cut down on frustration the new Type C connector can be plugged in either way, similar to the new USB standard. superMHL steps on even more USB toes by offering a data connection between devices.

asphalt overdrive

 

Gameloft has just release its newest Racing Game from the Asphalt series. Asphalt Overdrive, is the 2015's game for Asphalt that will take you way back to the 80's with some oldy places to race and legacy super fast cars. Overdrive is a spinoff of the Asphalt series. This isn't exactly Asphalt 9 that you may have been waiting for and features a different gameplay mechanic.

 

asphalt overdrive

 

Asphalt Overdrive is essentially like an endless runner game but with cars. You drive a car and dodge obstacles in your path by swiping left or right. You jump off ramps and pull stunts in the air. You ram traffic on the side and when you earn enough nitro boost by doing all this you use it to evade the cops.

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.

Anyone who is even mildly interested about the Android OS knows CyanogenMod for developing and releasing custom ROMs for multiple handsets across numerous brands. The best part is that they often bring latest versions of the Android OS to smartphones which will never receive the same from their original manufacturers. This time around, Steve Kondik has announced the name of the models that will be compatible with the latest CyanogenMod 14.1 beta Night Build, based on Android 7.1 Nougat. Take a look at the list below.


LG Nexus 5X
LG G3
LG G4
Motorola Moto G 4G
Motorola Moto G2
Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen
Motorola Moto G4
Motorola Moto G4 Plus
Samsung Galaxy S5
Xiaomi Mi 3
Xiaomi Mi 4
OnePlus 3
ASUS ZenFone 2
Huawei Nexus 6P


If your device isn't listed, do not be disappointed as more models will be added to the list in the coming week. Before you download and install it though, keep in mind that it isn't a stable version and the ROM still is missing a few features (Themes for example). Many of the glitches will be patched and missing features will keep getting added in the coming updates.

Xperia

 

Sony Mobile released 6 Apps that showcase the water resistance of its flagship Xperia smartphones. Sony Underwater Apps is currently Available in the United States for Xperia Z1s and Xperia Z2 via Google Play Store Here.

 

The apps, which look undeniably fun and goofy, utilize a great deal of clever engineering to work. The end result is an Xperia device that detects and changes behavior when submerged under water.

 

The abovementioned feat is achieved via a detector, which generates a test tone with frequency beyond that of the human ear. The device uses its dual-microphones to record sounds that are subsequently processed. The resulting spectrograms contain data that helps the device detect if it is in the air or under water.

Sony invented a new line of microSD cards that can produce better sound if they are made from the right materials and tuned just right to minimize electric noise coming from the card while it's working.

 

It theory a poorly designed component could interfere with the electric system of a phone or MP3 player and mess up the accuracy of its amps. Though in reality the label is an audiophile placebo that will cost around $155 when it comes out in Japan on March,5th.

Either way, unless you paid twice as much for your headphones than you would for this card and you listen exclusively to FLAC, you don't need the Premium Sound microSD card. And even if you do, you probably still don't need one.

After Samsung launched its Android 6.0 beta program on two of its premier devices from 2015, people were curious whether or not some of the older 2014 models will receive the Marshmallow update. As it turns out, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge are just the beta platforms for the Company to consolidate its Android 6.0 Marshmallow firmware, but certainly not the only ones who will get the update.


Historically speaking, Samsung always updates its major/flagship devices twice when it comes to big Android version updates. Therefore, the Galaxy S5 for example, should receive Android Marshmallow as its second update is still due. Our previous reports regarding the ongoing work on the Marshmallow firmware for S5 also confirms our educated guess. The Note 4, the Note Edge and the Galaxy S5 LTE-A among others should receive the same sometime in 2016.


Needless to say, the more recent devices launched in 2015 will also get Android 6.0 but the exact time for those updates are not yet clear. Unlike Nexus or Motorola devices, Samsung phones do not necessarily get the fastest updates because the company also needs to customize its own TouchWiz UI on top of the new Android version. The delay might irritate some users, but it is better to get a bug-free, solid version than a faster botched up update in our opinion.

Good Lock by Samsung was a "good" application at launch but it had quite a few serious bugs. The location settings popped up repeatedly, the colors were ordinary and most importantly, it sapped the battery severely. Samsung did address quite a few of the bugs in earlier updates, including the auto update issue, Home button issue and multiple problems with external SD cards. There were also a host of other bug fixes and add on features that were introduced by Samsung earlier, but this latest update takes customization options another step further.



The Good Lock Update v24.0.9 will add enhanced Routine color settings, more colors for the lock screen clock, a shortcut to Mobile hotspot on the Quick Panel and a new, bug free dark themed notification shade. If you have a Galaxy S7 or a Galaxy S7 Edge, you will see a new AOD Quick Setting as well. Considering that it has been out only for a month, it's good to see that Samsung is so dedicated to providing the best possible experience to its users. You can download and use the Good Lock app if you have any of the following handsets form the Korean OEM; Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Active, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.

The latest Nexus smartphones are already running on Android Nougat 7.0 and the upcoming Google Pixel and Pixel XL could be bringing a new version of the OS, aka Android Nougat 7.0.1 with them. However, as LG plans to release the V20 very soon with Android 7.0 right out of the box, one cannot expect Samsung to lag behind without being in the process of developing a version of the latest Android OS for their own high-end smartphones.


As far as we know, reports from XDA Developers and certain test results on the Geekbench benchmarking tool shows that Samsung is already testing out their ROM for stability. The Korea Times on the other hand, assures us that Samsung will be releasing their first Android Nougat updates towards the last quarter of the year (October - December). If you are on T-Mobile, you should be happy to know that the carrier has even confirmed that the following handsets will surely be updated to Nougat; Galaxy S6 Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy Note 7. To know more details head over to GottaBeMobile.

Samsung recently started rolling out the February's security update to all of the unlocked devices of the Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note 5 present across Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America.


This update is exactly like the firmware that Google released for its Nexus series at the very beginning of February. It primarily resolves the 10 security loopholes and 7 major vulnerabilities present in the Android operating system. It also packs a dedicated patch for the buggy Qualcomm Wi-Fi drivers and a solution for a major error that could have facilitated remote access to the smartphone by sending a simple text message.


Sadly, the South Korean tech giant was not able to publish the complete change log for this update as there are issues present in the software which might not have been exploited by hackers till now. They might try to attempt to exploit those security issues before the patch reaches the devices.

Major players in the smartphone market like HTC and LG have already started updating their latest and greatest smartphones with Android M. Samsung however, is a little behind the competition in this regard as final stable versions of the update is not yet made available by them. This does not count the optional Android 6.0 beta update which Samsung has released in certain countries for pre-release testing.


The good news is, according to a source named "XTECH LEAKS," the Android M updates are coming not only to 2015 flagships, but also to slightly older flagships of 2014. The three 2014 models that will definitely be updated by Samsung are the S5, the Note 4 and the Note Edge. All major handsets of 2015, namely the S6, the S6 Edge, the S6 Edge+ and the Note 5 will be updated to Android 6.0 first. All of this was deduced from a leaked screenshot that had Samsung's update schedule on it.

If you own a Galaxy Note 5 or a S6 Edge+, you should be particularly happy as these two smartphones will be the first ones to be updated officially by Samsung in February. The S6 and the S6 Edge are next in line and both should get their Marshmallow updates within a few weeks after the first batch. Finally, the 2014 models will see Android 6 by April. Some have even speculated that the updates released by Samsung could be based on the newer Android 6.0.1 as that would somewhat justify the late release. Although the information seems logical, we will let you know more when the news becomes official.
