HTC One M9

 

Claimed front panel of the supposed HTC One M9 has popped up, and if this leak holds water, it means that the upcoming flagship from HTC will have a pretty good screen-to-phone-size ratio.

 

Of course, here we have to tack on the BoomSound stereo speakers top and bottom, but legend has it HTC is working on slimming those down even further, so we might end up with both a compact and elegant handset for the screen size.

Interestingly, the source claims that this is a 5.2" panel, as per the original rumor, instead of the 5.5" diagonal we've been hearing lately, but their musings are backed only by a comparative picture where the One M9 display is put next to the 5-incher of the One M8, so nothing is set in stone just yet.

Yes you read that right and no this isn't one of those eye-catching clickbait titles either. You can actually buy a Galaxy S8 in its home nation for a price lower than $180 ($177)/200,000 Won, but it wouldn't be "legal" as per Samsung's stipulations.


Reports have confirmed that certain online and offline retailers are providing their customers with subsidies worth a minimum of 600,000 Korean Won or $530 roughly! This effectively cuts down the S8's marked price of 935,000 Won ($825 roughly) to a selling price of 335,000 Won or about $295. Mind you, that's the "least" amount of subsidy on offer here. Legally, the retailer cannot sell the phone below 753,000 won or about $665.


If you are wondering why the retailers would do that, it is supposedly a ploy to keep their customers according to the reports. If you are wondering how they would make a profit out of virtually giving away such expensive smartphones, we have no clue either! Whatever the reasons are, I bet you are feeling pretty jealous right now.

Although the Galaxy Note 8 was launched with 6GB of RAM on Wednesday, rumor has it that Samsung is planning to release a cheaper version of its latest flagship smartphone with 4GB of RAM. Everything else should be exactly the same though and that brings us to the question, would you mind less RAM if you could save up on some money for that?


As of now, the rumor suggests that the phone is only being developed for China, but it could be making an appearance in other Asian countries as well. The Note 8 with 4GB of RAM came into limelight after it was seen passing through the TENAA. As per the report, this one will be cheaper at 5,664 Yuan/$850, whereas the regular Note 8 with 6GB of RAM should be priced at around 6,288 Yuan or $943. We are not sure if this cheaper version will hit any other countries outside Asia though.

According to a report by Appsflyer, Android users are much more likely to uninstall applications from their smartphones than iOS users. To be more precise, Android users are about twice as likely to uninstall an app from their phone, as compared to an Apple iPhone user. The conclusion was drawn by the analysts after going through data based on 500 apps and about 20 million devices. The comparatively short-lived interest in multiple apps, as exhibited by the Android populace could be a result of any one or multiple of the following reasons.


Android users outnumber iPhone users quite significantly, and unless the data was collected by keeping that fact in mind, the sheer numerical superiority can definitely contribute to such an overwhelming difference in behaviour between the two groups.


The Play Store now officially has more apps than the App Store, but when it comes to quality, the App Store is still leading. The Play Store has a lot of buggy and broken apps on it, which might be the reason why Android users uninstall a lot of the apps just shortly after downloading and using it.


Finally, it could be the absolute low-end, outdated garbage which some of the sellers (including Samsung) still sells to their customer base in developing nations like India, Pakistan, etc. Some of these horrible outdated phones even have internal storage capacities as low as 4GB (Useable memory being anything in between 1.2GB to 2.2GB at most). Add to this the fact that these devices also sport ancient hardware that can't even start the modern games properly and you have an instant answer for a lot of those quick uninstalls.

facebook lite


Facebook has just officially published "Facebook Lite" v1.0.0.0 App on the Google Play store. The main reason for this App is to make a lite, fast Facebook App for Low-end Android smartphones, as the current Facebook App is very large in size and performs slow on low-spec devices with less Ram and CPU power and uses less data and works in all network conditions

Facebook Lite is relatively tiny for an app from a major social network, weighing in at only a quarter of a megabyte a crucial stat if you live in a place that can only get 2G data access. There's a good reason for that, too: it looks like Facebook Lite isn't much more than a WebView wrapper for the mobile site, plus native Android notifications.

That might indeed be very useful for someone who just wants to check in on Facebook without loading up the admittedly heavy Chrome app, but for most current users it won't add any real functionality. Facebook Lite does include a few extra bells and whistles that aren't available on the web, like the ability to peek into your phone's contacts to see if there's anyone you've ever spoken to that isn't your Facebook friend yet.

Facebook Lite main features:

- Fast to install, the app is less than 1 MB

- Quick to load
- Efficient with data

- Designed for 2G networks and areas with limited network connectivity

SD 815

 

The Snapdragon 815 is coming this year, We have heard a lot of things about hot Snapdragon 810 chipset and its alleged overheating issues. We still don't know the whole outcome of the story as there are almost no real tests that show if the Snapdragon 810 processor really suffers from overheating.

 

temperature

 

However, there are several reports, especially the recent HTC One M9 overheating issues, that showed high operating temperatures. The issues seems to be fixed with the upcoming Snapdragon 815, which runs at 100.4 degrees (38° C), compared to the 107.6 (42° C) degrees by the Snapdragon 801, 111.2 (44° C) degrees by the Snapdragon 810. Since there isno real test of the Snapdragon 810, and the Snapdragon 815 is still far away from production.
