2019 was the year of success for OnePlus. In 2020 the company isn't likely to slow down, as we have already witnessed a new streak of rumors about OnePlus 8 series as these devices are on the way. There is also a rumor about a new mid-range or budget-friendly device coming from the company, which is tagged as OnePlus 8 Lite. If it does launch, it would be the first mid-range smartphone from the company since the OnePlus X, that was launched back in 2015.
The mid-range device OnePlus 8 Lite was named as "Lite" by rumors because it seems more sensible than using the X, as OnePlus did in the past. It might be possible that the Lite version has some other name, but until we hear from the company, we will continue to use the OnePlus 8, Pro, and Lite. As per leaks, the devices will be launched in May of 2020. It's predecessor OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 6 both were released in May.
As per leak images, the OnePlus 8 looks slightly different than the OnePlus 7. There is an addition of a lens on the rear side of the device. Earlier, the phone had only two lenses. On the front side, the waterdrop notch is gone. Instead, the company adopted the punch-hole route by adding a single camera lens for taking selfies as a cutout in the upper left corner.
As per the physical buttons are concerned, the volume rocker is on the left side, and the power button is a layout on the right side along with the alert slider. The USB-C port is in its usual place and there is still no 3.5mm headphone jack. From the back, the device looks similar to the OnePlus 7T Pro. The camera has left-of-center ToF sensor, all arranged in pretty much a similar way as in 7T pro. In short, the OnePlus 8 Lite is different than any other OnePlus phone from the front side.
As per confirmed leaks, the OnePlus 8 series is going to have a 120Hz display refresh rate. With its predecessor, the display rate was 90Hz. However, it is unlikely that the Lite version will feature such a high refresh rate. OnePlus could use wireless charging with the upcoming series.
A slow smartphone leads to frustration, whether you're booting up an online game or checking your text messages. However, you don't have to give up on your phone just because it's gotten a little lethargic. Instead, try these safe, simple hacks to make your smartphone faster.
Remove Transition Animations

You might have noticed that your iPhone produces animated transitions between screens. While these animations might seem simple, they can slow down your phone when you need its memory most. Fortunately, you can disable animations in iOS 7, which will free up memory for other tasks. This process will also remove the parallax effects from icons and other on-screen graphics.
Find the settings app on your iPhone, click on the General tab, and find the menu labeled Accessibility. Just tap the Reduce Motion option. It will shift from off to on, disabling animations. Restart the device to apply the change. Now your phone can devote its resources to games, apps, texting, and streaming instead of delivering flashy animations on the interface.
Clear Your Phone's Memory
Even though the Apple iPhone 7 features 32GB of memory, you might need to clear the memory to make space for new data. In older versions of iOS, you had to factory reset the device to clear the memory. That meant losing all of your contacts, game progress, text messages, and call logs. However, the latest versions give you a shortcut that doesn't put your valuable data at risk.
First, back up your phone to the iCloud after connecting to Wi-Fi. Consider doing this once a month or so to protect your data. Next, hold down the Sleep button for several seconds. The screen for shutting down your smartphone should appear. Release the Sleep button and hold down the Home button. When the Home screen comes up, you'll know that you've successfully flushed your iPhone's memory.
Move Your Photos to External Storage
If you don't want to clear your phone's memory entirely, but your device seems sluggish, consider shifting your photos and other files to the cloud or external storage. You can do this with both iOS and Android devices. Simply connect your device to your computer, external hard drive, or the cloud, find where your photos are stored on your phone, and move them over to the other device.
Many people take hundreds of photos every month with their smartphones. Clearing them out will make more storage space for future photos, and you won't consume as much of your smartphone's memory, which should make the device run faster.
Remove Unused Files and Apps
Running too many apps can turn your smartphone into a sluggish machine. You might have downloaded many apps since you bought the phone, then never even used some of them. Take a tour through your apps list and delete any that you no longer use.
Next, go through your photo and video files. In addition to moving them to other storage, you can also delete files that you no longer want. Blurry photos, dark videos, and other undesirable files often linger on smartphones even though they'll never be posted on Facebook, printed out, sent to friends, or even looked at again.
Delete the Browser Cache
If you use your smartphone to browse the internet, delete the browser cache every week or two. The cache files take up significant space on your smartphone's hard drive, which can slow it down. You can empty the browser cache no matter which browser you use. Typically, you'll enter the browser settings and find the History menu. From there, you can delete the cache and anything else you no longer need.
Keep in mind that your smartphone might even store browser information from other devices if they're connected on the same Wi-Fi network. If you use your home computer, tablet, or other devices to surf the web, delete the browser caches on all devices to help them run faster.
Don't spend all day staring at loading screens or waiting for your browser to catch up. Instead, try these suggestions to make your smartphone faster and more convenient.
With the number of applications and basic functionality only increasing, people are spending more and more time on their smartphones.
Checking your email and instant messages, surfing the Internet, watching videos, posting on social media sites, and playing video games can be great pastimes and studies have shown today's smartphone users in the United States are doing all of that, spending about one-third of their waking hours on the phone. Unfortunately, most of this activity is not very productive, but there are ways to turn it all around and get your smartphone working for you.
In fact, there are literally dozens of smartphone apps on the market where users can earn real money and rewards, instead of just wasting time.
Live Life On The Go
Imagine an app that paid you for going about the business of your day and chronicling your activity the same way you already do on social media.
‘Gigwalk' is such an app for iOS and Android users. This app pays you to do things like visit certain retail outlets or restaurants in your area. The catch is you might have to take pictures or make videos about the experience, but if you're as active on social media as most smartphone users, you're probably already doing that anyway.
Play Online Poker
Playing online poker is one of the original ways to earn money on the Internet. Considered a skill game more than just a gamble, there's millions of dollars being fought over on online poker sites every week.
Online poker giant PokerStars offers a full slate of mobile apps to help you brush up on your poker skills and play the game on the go. There may be some risk involved, but the rewards can be plentiful.
If you're interested in the latest games and apps for your smartphone, you might already be watching promotional videos without getting paid for it. ‘AppTrailers' can make sure that never happens again. This app offers users credits for watching videos of different app promotions, including videos from some of the most popular video game designers in the market today, like EA and Rovio.
The app is free and the more videos you watch the more points you earn and the points are redeemable for things like PayPal cash and Amazon Gift Cards.
‘The Watch & Earn' app is another option. This app gives users coins for watching promotional app videos as well as downloading the apps themselves. The coins can be traded in for gift cards from places including Amazon and Google Play, as well as PayPal cash.
If you're downloading and checking out all the latest apps for your smartphone already, there's no reason not to get paid for it. ‘AppBounty' pays out gift cards to users who download the apps it suggests. The rewards include gift cards for the Playstation Network, XBox, and iTunes among others.
Similarly, ‘Tap Cash Rewards' hands out Skype, Google Play, and Target gift cards to users who download apps and log in every day.
‘Cash Gift - Free Gift Cards' is another free app that takes earning money by downloading apps to the next level. Not only does the app offer the opportunity to earn by downloading apps and watching promotional videos, but it will pay you for completing certain tasks as well. ‘Cash Gift - Free Gift Cards' offers gift cards for the Google Play Store, Amazon and PayPal and the app claims it has paid out more than $1 million in cash to users already.
They say opinions are like noses, as everybody has one. Apps like ‘Survey Mini' and ‘Surveys On The Go' can make sure you get paid for them.
‘Survey Mini' helps users earn money by answering survey questions about locations they go to. It works in conjunction with the GPS on your smartphone.
In the meantime, ‘Surveys On The Go' hosts a number of surveys about the latest TV shows and movies, or specific products and shopping experiences.
Next time you pick up your phone, you could also be picking up cash.
As mobile devices become increasingly "smarter," it is harder than ever for users to put down their phones. In 2016, Ofcom reported that nearly two thirds of UK's population now own a smartphone. The study showed that this group spends nearly two hours every day using their mobile devices to browse the internet, shop online or post on social media. If you are one of these frequent mobile users, then it's time you started earning extra money online. After all, your time is valuable too.
Making money right from your mobile device has never been easier. While there are virtually unlimited options, these four ways may be the quickest.
Download Apps That Pay
There are numerous apps that will pay you for your time. This may sound too good to be true, but it is incredibly simple as long as you have the free time.
Some apps, like Shopkick or Easy Shift, let you earn money by visiting stores you already shop at anyway. Scan barcodes and check prices to help businesses check their retail products. Companies will even pay you for putting their advertisements on your phone's lock screen.
If you want to get out and be more active, Gigwalk posts tasks related to verifying the name or location of street signs, roads or landmarks. GymPact will pay you to work out and then charge you for missed days, helping hold you accountable for your exercise routine.
Each app offers a different pay scale. Research which earning rate and activity level is right for you.
Play Online Games for Money
Online gaming isn't just sitting in front of your computer. There are websites that offer the chance to earn real money simply by playing.
Fantasy sports websites have become increasingly popular because of their strategy-based game play and immediate results. Learning the details of how to play these games successfully, however, can be overwhelming. You have to have a strong knowledge base in these various sports in order to be profitable.
If you are looking for something equally fun and easier to play, try online gambling websites. Live casino and betting websites feature classic card and table games that anyone can jump right in and play. Try your luck spinning the Roulette wheel or double down with a hand of Blackjack.
These games are such a great way to put a little extra cash in your wallet because you get to play while also making money.
Sell Your Stuff Online
Using your smartphone can turn cleaning out your closet into quick cash.
By posting unwanted or unused items on eBay, you can check two different items on your to-do list; you can make money and get rid of clutter.
If you like crafts, Etsy is another great resource that can match your talents with a potential buyer. Create hand-made products, post them to your portal and sell them immediately.
Although both of these give you huge ability to make money, there are some barriers to instant success. In order to actually sell goods on these websites, you must have a product that is in demand and that someone is willing to buy. Selling on these platforms require skill and patience. Both of these problems can be solved with research and studying effective selling strategies. And, even though these companies will take a small fee, it is still cheaper than starting and promoting your own business website.
Offer Freelance Work
You may not have a product to sell, but you might have a skill.
Whether it is writing, drawing, editing or just offering advice, there is growing market for services online. Known as the "gig" economy, you can sell a variety of specialty services through companies, such as Fiverr. Since you are paid by the project and your starting pay may be small, you may have to build a client base and generate positive reviews before you can really begin to earn.
If you are into photography, you could sell you work to a large, resource website, like Shutterstock. Because this doesn't require much effort to do, many people take advantage of this opportunity. You may have to be persistent and creative to get your items sold.
Virtually everyone owns a smartphone and uses it daily. In fact, it has been shown that within the first 15 minutes of waking up in the morning to just before falling asleep at night people habitually check their phones. From email to photos, calls to SMS messages, apps to games, there are an inexhaustive number of activities that mobile phones offer. As a result, phones get cluttered. What once worked with impressive speed when purchased half a year ago, now starts to slow. This can be a major annoyance as well as hindering the performance of your device. Fortunately, most big brand smartphones like Apple or Samsung allow users to run a diagnostic check to identify what applications or folders are taking up the most space and causing the phone to slow. Even worse that a slow speed is when the smartphone freezes and can even crash. There is nothing worse than needing to make a call or compose a message and not being able to because of the inefficiency of your phone. While instructions vary per mobile device, running a diagnostic usually requires accessing settings then device care. From here, there is a layout of how much storage and memory is available and also which apps are in disuse (also called ‘Sleeping apps'). Most phones then allow the Optimize to free up space. By doing this, the phone not only runs faster and more efficient but also increases the battery life to keep the device running longer after charges.
Probably the biggest culprit of gobbling space is photos, and especially videos. Having a portable camera is extremely convenient and so many users are guilty of taking multiple selfies to scroll through. In the digital era, most of these photos remain on the phone and never get deleted or transferred to computer or hard drive. It is useful to backup photos on an account, like cloud, on a laptop or external hard drive as this frees up substantial space on the storage as well as protects your photos in case your phone is lost or damaged. An external SD card that can be placed into most phones is also very handy as this can add many more Gigabytes of space and, if ever the card fills up through the years, it can be simply removed and replaced with a fresh one or transferred to a laptop. Again, an external SD card also saves your photos or video if the phone crashes or breaks. Even when users do a sweep of their phone, deleting any goofy photos and blurry images or lengthy space eating videos, the deleted items can be sent to the ‘trash folder'. Most times anything in the trash gets automatically deleted after around 15 days, but sometimes this setting is not enabled and photos or documents remain there forever - unknown to the user who thought they have cleared out their phone. Therefore, double check and erase all documents in the trash to not waste space. Deleting any stored cache or browsing history can also free up space, especially when it has been collected over a long period of time. Once all the photos, videos, and documents have been secured via transfer to another device or platform like Google Photos or iCloud, then some users may opt for a hard reset of their phone. This returns the smartphone to its factory settings, that is how the phone appeared brand new.
Another area that takes up a lot of phone storage are certain elaborate apps and games. Furthermore, these apps can also continually update and add more features and visual settings that consume additional space over time. For many people it is not only the size of the app or game that can cause their phone to slow, but the quantity that they have downloaded - and most often rarely use. The fact that a majority of apps or games are free to download gives into the temptation to create a database, with even the smaller size apps adding up to take up considerable size. One way to prevent this is to analyze and rank which apps that you use most every day to a few times a week and those that are inessential, and you rarely use. Delete or uninstall these unused apps. Smartphones are also great at providing a visual breakdown of how much space each app or game users and further the last time you have opened that particular app. If the last time is over a month ago and it takes up around 1GB of space, it is best to junk it. Another technique, particular for gaming on smartphone, is to play online games more than those that require downloading. As most places offer wifi, this option is feasible since downloaded multi-level games can be notorious for slowing phone speed and performance. For instance, online casino sites have particularly proven themselves experts at focusing on mobile gameplay for slot games - accessible via internet. Mobile slots have simple and straightforward controls, with a grid of 5 reels, about 3 or 4 rows, a number of paylines, and features and bonus rounds that can award thrilling payouts of real money. Further, as these mobile slots are online, they do not eat up any space on the smartphone as an actual device. A few great mobile slots are Eyecon's classic ‘Fluffy Favourites', Yggdrasil's visually stunning ‘Ahoha!' for a trip to Hawaii, and Playtech's cheerful ‘Irish Luck' online, as well as many more with different themes and rewards on offer.
As with photos and videos occupying lots of space on a phone, music is another area that can bite a chunk of space from the device. While it is a convenience downloading songs on the smartphone, when a user has a collection of thousands that is when the problems can start. Investing in an ipod is useful to designate songs to a device and save space on the phone. Otherwise, consider installing and subscribing to a music listen app such as Spotify that is designed to download songs offline with as little space as possible.
These tips and tricks should free up most space on any smartphone and increase the device speed and performance. Of course, conserving mobile space also requires mindfulness. Pay closer attention to the apps and games that you value and are essential and those that you can do without. Also, sift through and narrow down the countless selfies and transfer those long videos of a squirrel in the park. Then you can rest assured that you will be able to capture something important when it does happen rather than miss an opportunity because of a weighted down phone.
Who hasn't heard about TikTok? It is one the most popular streaming apps right now. Its parent's company - a Chinese IT firm is planning to take a step into the smartphone manufacturing industry as well. ByteDance, whose $75 Billion valuation ranks it one of the world's biggest start-up plans to launch a phone pre-loaded with its own apps - which include newsfeeds, video and gaming apps to reach out more global audience. This move is seen by many as an initiative by Chinese companies to rely on their own services, software, and hardware after the US ban. ByteDance is one of very few companies from china who has global audience in Asia and west, other than its home country.
Earlier than this, Amazon has tried similar effort but it was pulled a year after launch due to its disaster failure. Analysts predict ByteDance phone could have a similar outcome. Analyst Jia Mo said, there is basically no space for them in the mass market. They lack experience and advantage in supply chain, in channels, so their likelihood of being successful is very low, he further added. If they target only the niche market, may be they have a chance by attracting niche customer groups through certain pre-installed software.
Bytedance's own international expansion has helped the company to acquire its lip-syncing Musical.ly app in 2017. But despite racking up huge number of downloads- it was fined by the Federal trade commission for illegally collecting personal information from users younger than 18 years. Wang Xi, research manager said that may be they could have a chance if they offer something new and at lower price. He said, So if they really will go down this path, I think they will probably let hardware lose money in the beginning and try to make up through their service later.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge was the first Dual-edged curved smartphone on the market, the device's sales was higher than expected. Today, BBC reported that the Korean giant is struggling to meet the S6 Edge supply demand.
The reason of this shortage is that the curved screen of the Edge is very difficult to manufacture, it takes a long complicated process that leads on delays in the production line.
"Samsung will have a serious issue if the shortage is due to the difficulty of producing the curved screen. They [Samsung] must succeed in the launch of these new flagship phones to regain leadership in the high-end segment. They have a window of opportunity until the new iPhone comes out. The product and design is great - but [it] lacks service differentiation." - Mobile analyst, Thomas Husson at Forrester told the BBC
Apparently there has been a business arrangement made in between Nokia Technologies, Microsoft, HMD Global and Foxconn that will see Nokia come back into the smartphone business under HMD Global, a fellow Finnish corporation. However, Nokia will enjoy significant control over the handsets manufactured and branded under its name. Nokia will also become a board member within HMD, in addition to setting "mandatory brand requirements and performance provisions." If you are a Nokia fan, we have more good news for you because Arto Nummela will become the head of HMD as a result of this arrangement. Nummela currently holds the position of VP at Microsoft, but hails originally as an executive of Nokia back in the day.
Nokia was the pioneer and at one point, had enjoyed the number one position in the phone business for years at a stretch. Customers used to (many still do) trust the company for quality, innovation, service and durability and it would be interesting to see if this joint venture can bring the same things to consumers with their upcoming Android smartphones. Since HMD Global is basically run by ex-Nokia executives, the chance of that happening seems good right now. Things aren't looking good for Microsoft though as this news once again shows that the mighty software giant is almost on the verge of giving up on their smartphone business.

If you were banking on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 offering improved scratch resistance due to the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top of its display, you might have to think again. According to a video posted by YouTuber JerryRigEverything, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 failed quite miserably in a basic scratch test. Keep in mind that the person testing the smartphone is an expert and has performed similar tests on multiple devices and according to him, the Note 7 is more prone to scratches than most of its competitors, in spite of sporting the Gorilla Glass 5 protection. This leads us to believe that Corning might have skimped on scratch resistance in favour of shatter resistance with the fifth version.
The YouTuber even went on to state in the description that he would be glad to make another video if Samsung or Corning came forward to explain what happened here. The flame test also showed less durability than the competition, but we are not as much concerned about that as the chances of our smartphone being exposed to sharp objects like coins, keys and rough surfaces are much greater than being engulfed in flames! If you are planning to pick up a Note 7 anytime soon, our advice would be to order a good quality tempered glass with it just to be safe.

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"

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?

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.
Flexible displays are slowly but surely making their way into our mobile devices. Samsung's first official Smartphone with a flexible curved display is the Galaxy Note Edge. Samsung's next step, however, will be represented by displays that can be "folded in half", according to a senior Samsung executive. The wording seems to imply that the smartphone that will have that screen attached to it will be bendable as well.
Samsung's display-making subsidiary is gearing up for production of such panels, and it boasts that it will have the capacity to make 30,000 to 40,000 of them each month by the end of 2015.
Apparently, none of Samsung's competitors will be able to match that production capacity for flexible displays until 2016. And Samsung plans to use its advantage, by coming out with a bendable phone before the end of 2015.
That said, "nothing has been decided on the finished product" just yet. But if it does come out in 2015, expect it to be another "limited edition" type thing, just like the Galaxy Note Edge is this year. That's because a mass market flagship will require millions of units being made per month, and not tens of thousands.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were near-perfect devices on release, with super high resolution 2K displays, fastest processors, lightning quick fingerprint scanners and much more. But if one was allowed to nitpick, its 5-megapixel front camera might just stick out like a sore thumb. Is the 5-mp resolution going to get a bump this year? Frankly, we are not sure! On the positive side though, we now have a report from etnews that Samsung is going to cater to the selfie-freaks among us by adding autofocus to the front camera of the Galaxy S8-series.
We are well aware that an autofocus feature alone cannot really compensate for a low-resolution and now dated camera module, especially when compared to the likes of the LG V20 and the Google Pixel phones. Therefore, we are hopeful that Samsung will accompany the autofocus feature with an improved sensor as well. Given that Apple bumped up the resolution of the iPhone's FaceTime camera from 5-mp to 7-mp this year, the pressure is definitely on Samsung to raise its selfie-standards!

Before you get too excited, let me tell you upfront that the upcoming Galaxy A (2017)-series is probably not going to get the curved display as you might be thinking. To the best of our knowledge, they will sport flat screens just as their predecessors. However, rumors are going around suggesting that at least some of the Galaxy A smartphones which will be introduced in 2017 could very well sport the Super AMOLED curved panels which we have so far only seen on the flagships from Samsung.
Even though it is just a rumor and a very light one at that, if Samsung does actually decide to shift onto curved displays for the Galaxy A-line up, we think we know the reason why they would do that. The answer is competition. Although Samsung still is the global king of smartphones, in certain Asian markets like China, its market share is dwindling. The reason for this downfall is of course, competition from big Chinese brands like Oppo, Xiaomi, Huawei and many others. These Chinese companies are selling phones with hardware similar to those offered by the established brands at half the price. Samsung needs to distinguish its smartphones by endowing them with unique features at a competitive price in order to survive in the low to mid-range market and its brilliant Super AMOLED curved display can definitely give Samsung mid-range phones the "edge" they need.

According to a recent report, the Galaxy S8 will not feature the well loved 3.5mm audio jack. It will instead, sport a single USB Type-C port with audio transmitting capabilities. This will basically mean two things; all your current headphones will become incompatible and you won't be able to use even your compatible headphones while charging. One can argue that a converter/adapter can make the "old" 3.5mm headphones useable on the Galaxy S8, but the audio quality from what we have experienced so far, doesn't remain the same.
It was hardly a few months ago that Justin Denison (Marketing VP, Samsung) mocked Apple's decision to remove the headphone jack, while introducing the Galaxy Note 7.
"Want to know what else it comes with?"
"An audio jack. I'm just saying,"
If they really go through with the decision, one cannot help but feel that even after the joke and all, Samsung is indeed going to do tomorrow what Apple did yesterday. Take note though, that LeEco moved on to Lossless Digital Audio even before Apple did it with the iPhone 7 and so did some of the Lenovo Moto phones. Personally, I would hate to see the headphone jack go, what about you?

The Galaxy S8 will be launched in roughly two week's time, but it is still more than a month away from being available for purchase. While that is quite frustrating given Samsung has not released a flagship smartphone in over a year, it might also be the perfect time to pick up a S7 or S7 Edge in the US.
As of now, both the phones are available for purchase from Sprint and T-Mobile at a discount of $250 and a free 128GB micro-SD card. AT&T is selling the devices at a discount of $200, along with the same 128GB micro-SD card thrown in. Although Verizon or the unlocked variants of the S7 and S7 Edge does not have the same offers, Samsung has officially slashed the prices of the two phones by $100, even if you are buying the unlocked or Verizon version. However, you will get a 64GB memory card for free if you buy a regular S7 and a 128GB card will be bundled in only if you buy the S7 Edge in this case. Given that the S7 and S7 Edge are still among the best smartphones that money can buy, the discounts almost make them a must buy at this point.

According to a report by Korea Herald, Samsung is all set to release a new batch of "explosion proof batteries" by the end of roughly two years at most. Yes, the irony of Samsung trying to make batteries that don't explode is not lost on us and let the Note 7 jokes rain! However, it's exactly that blunder which led Samsung to try and develop this solid state, stable battery in the first place.
The batteries are being researched and developed at Samsung's own Samsung SDI division and if they do manage to churn these batteries out like they are hoping to, you can rest assured that Samsung will be the first company to sport them. However, one point to be noted is that an executive at the SDI told Korea Herald that there's no guarantee that those non-explosive batteries will be used in future smartphones. He mentioned that is a call which will be made by Samsung electronics. On a side note, LG Chem is probably on the same track as well and it wouldn't be surprising to see both the companies come up with these safer batteries at nearly the same time.

The myth of the Samsung foldable smartphone continues as the latest rumors and reports are pointing towards some additional info. Apparently, the Galaxy X, aka Samsung's first foldable smartphone is coming in 2019, but it will be expensive, very expensive! If you though that latest flagship smartphones touching the $1,000 mark was crazy, wait till the Galaxy X hits the market with a price tag close to 2 million won or $1900!
The 7.3-inch (rumored) foldable phone will either carry two or even three separate AMOLED displays which will lock together into one single device on opening, or there will be just one amazing, foldable display. Given the rumored prize tag though, it better be amazing! In any case, the price tag might just put off buyers because shelling out that kind of money for one smartphone is neither feasible nor intelligent for most users, but then again, you may never know! The phone could make an appearance at the CES 2019 first, but it will likely be a private showing and limited to the eyes of the investors and partners only.
The Galaxy Note 9 has finally been launched and while the memories are still fresh, it is already time to look forward to the Galaxy S10, because it might have a bunch of impressive features that the Galaxy Note 9 didn't. Make no mistake, the Note 9 is a very capable device, but it's nothing ground breaking in terms of design or functionality really. You can check out the full spec, price and feature list here. Having said that, could it be that some of the more impressive features, including the in-display fingerprint scanner would make their way onto the Galaxy S10? We certainly hope so, especially since it is predicted that most smartphones will have it in 2019.
It's a bit disappointing really that the huge 6.4-inch display of the Note 9 didn't have the Fingerprint on Display technology, aka FOD, given that both Huawei and Vivo have managed to incorporate it quite effectively in some of their high-end smartphones for months now. We are also expecting 3D cameras and 5G compatibility on the Galaxy S10, but it's still too early to tell for sure.
Samsung has so far managed to stay away from the notch by sticking to its tried and tested low-bezel displays but they might actually introduce the infamous notch after all, albeit in a completely different way. Instead of opting for the hated notch on top to accommodate the sensors, mic and cameras, Samsung's future flagship smartphone in 2019 may just sport a side-notch on the Edge display! Cool as the idea may sound, the practicality of it doesn't make too much sense now, but the patent has indeed been filed by Samsung under the name, "Electronic Device Including Bended Display and Image Displaying Method Therethrough."
This could help Samsung eliminate the bezels altogether but even then, the design doesn't seem to be too practical at the moment. May be the patent will be discarded or maybe they will find a better way to implement the technology, but there's no denying that the Vivo Nex is a live example of the fact that a better alternative to the notch does indeed exist for truly bezel-less smartphones.
Every year we see better technology coming up in the mobile industry and so is the number of Android phones is growing. Some are good, some are not so good. Some devices are really exciting like foldable Galaxy Z flip, whereas others are slightly boring. Among all of these handsets coming every year, one device that has been successfully impressed many with lots of exciting features and innovative designs is Samsung's Galaxy S series.
Samsung Galaxy S10 was undoubtedly the best-selling smartphone for the company last year. And this year, Samsung decided to launch a trio of phones with the Galaxy S20, S20, and S20 ultra. These are very technically impressive gadgets but comes with a high price tag, not something that everyone can afford. You can argue about the price, but there is no denying that they get a lot of attention compared to the budget-friendly Chinese rival's devices.
Although there are three models of the Galaxy S20, their core is very similar. All three phones have 120Hz display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 processor, expandable storage, water resistance, and offers wireless charging. Out of three models, the Galaxy S20 is the cheapest one but it doesn't have support for mmWave 5G network and has the smallest battery.
All three models have the same Android 10 with One UI 2.0 operating system and use the dame processing chip. They have the same memory 12GB whereas the Galaxy S20 also comes with 16GB memory. The storage is limited to 128GB for Galaxy S20 whereas other variants are getting 128GB and 512GB models. The storage can be expanded to 1TB.
The primary rear camera for Galaxy S20 and S20+ are 12MP whereas for Galaxy S20 ultra it goes up to 108MP with f/1.8. The second rear camera is 64MP telephoto lens and 48MP for Galaxy S20 ultra. The third camera is 12MP for all models and only Galaxy S20 ultra has the fourth camera. The front camera is 10MP for Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, and 40MP for Galaxy S20 ultra. The batteries are 4,000mAh, 4500mAh, and 5000mAh for Galaxy S20, S20+, S20 ultra respectively.
The Galaxy S20 series has a much higher refresh rate as compared to the previous phones. The 120Hz display on the S20 makes everything looks so flawless and faster compared to the traditional 60Hz displays. Samsung has offered four colors this time, including cloud blue, cloud pink, cosmic grey, and cosmic black.
Summer is fast approaching and the long days of sitting by a pool or in the garden are just around the corner.
For many it's a chance to kick back and relax, take some time away from their smartphones. For others, including us, we're continually checking our devices, not least because the boredom of sitting in the same spot for hours has kicked in.
Never fear though, there are dozens of great apps out there to keep you occupied this summer, in fact, they could even enhance it...
FIFA World Cup App
2018 really is a summer of sport so if you're missing out on the action for the likes of summer strolls or DIY, the official World Cup app will keep you up to date with all the football.
The months of June and July are going to be packed with football, and with this FIFA app you won't miss a thing.
It's amazing what apps are available these days. If you're fancying a day by the beach, the sand nestling between your toes, then Beach Finder is here to help.
A fairly self explanatory app, Beach Finder will be able to find your closest beach as well as highlight it's facilities and amenities. It's perfect, especially for on holiday when you might not necessarily know where the local beaches are.
Mobile Casino app
The great thing about mobile gaming are the games where they're quick and easy and can be comfortably played on the go.
When the sun is shining and you're lounging around a pool, there's no better app to download for a game than a mobile casino.
You'll be able to play a range of games from slots to blackjack, roulette and more, while you'll also be able to get mobile casino no deposit bonuses, so you won't even have to spent a penny.
Think you're a barbecue expert but get proven wrong time and time again? Grill Time is a great app for you to perfect that meat and become a real hero during family parties and BBQs.
The app will keep track of what's on the grill and send you notifications for when it's time to flip or serve. You'll be a burger expert in no time!
An app we hugely recommend, Wolfram measures sun exposure and calculates when it's time to call it a day from under the sun.
The app will use your complexion to calculate how long you can be out without feeling the burn. It takes into account time of day, location and the suntan lotion factor you're using to give you a solid estimate on when you should be thinking about taking a break from the rays.
Apple's first Phablet, the iPhone 6 plus is facing a huge issue that appears to be a design or a manufacturing flaw. Various reports around the web is saying that the iPhone 6 plus can bend easily while sitting in a user's front pocket or dropped to the ground.
As you can see in the video below, the iPhone 6 Plus does indeed appear to bend easily. The person in the video also observed before the test that his device already displayed slight indentation. The weak spot appears to be on its left side, right below the volume buttons.
According to an unofficial engineering opinion, the iPhone 6 Plus might be a victim of its elegant aluminum unibody. The device's significant footprint doesn't help its case either, as, combined with the thin body, it affects its bending strength.
A new rumor has it that Apple will be introducing bendable plastic LCD panels from JDI with the iPhone 8. However, that seems quite improbable unfortunately for Apple fans. Although the flexible LCD panels, also known as Full Active Flex screen could have given the dual curved Edge displays from Samsung a bit of competition, JDI has no plans of entering into mass production of the panels before 2018. While this does mean that future iPhones could very well be sporting the bendable displays that the rumors have been predicting, it is very unlikely that the iPhone 8 will be sporting it in 2017.
In a report by Reuters, it was stated that Liberum analyst Janardan Menon is implying that STMicroelectronics has struck a major deal with Apple. The deal was probably even mentioned in the company's financials for 2016, albeit anonymously. If it is true, then STMicroelectronics will probably be supplying Apple with a new type of proximity sensors for the iPhone 8. What these new sensors will be used for is beyond us at this moment, but it could have something to do with AR or VR integration. We will find out more soon enough.

The iPhone 8 is already one of the most anticipated phones of the year and given how much revolutionary the smartphone has been made out to be by fan made concepts, leaks and rumors, it would be safe to say that Apple's future flagship device has even surpassed the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 in terms of hype. People have a pretty good idea about the Note 8 because they have already seen the Galaxy S8+, but no one has ever seen anything like the iPhone OLED from Apple, given that the rumors are even remotely on track of course. To add to those series of rumors, we have another one for you today and it's a very interesting one to say the least.
The borderless OLED display which will presumably make its debut on an iPhone for the first time ever, poses one great problem which had earlier plagued (and still continues to plague) the S8 and S8+; there is no place left on the front to incorporate the fingerprint scanner. As the necessary technology for in-screen fingerprint scanners are not ready for mass production yet, Samsung has reportedly decided to go with an old-fashioned fingerprint scanner right at the centre of the Note 8's back. Apple on the other hand, has allegedly, shifted the fingerprint scanner to the iPhone 8's Power button! While Sony had placed the FP scanner at the side of its smartphones before, Power button integration for the security measure would indeed be a first.

Apple unveiled everything about the new iPhones and the new Apple Watch two days ago at their keynote and you probably already know the gist of everything they unveiled at the show. However, would you agree if we told you that Steve Cook and Co just confirmed the 3D Touch's failure to make any significant impact? Well, it depends on your point of view of course, but there's ample evidence to support one of two theories; either Apple failed to recognize or capitalize on the potentially great technology, or they just found it to be an unnecessary gimmick.
The reason as to why we are going on about this is of course the fact that the cheapest of the three iPhones, aka the iPhone XR doesn't have it! If you are going to tell me that a $749 (base model) smartphone can't support 3D Touch, which has been around for three whole years on older gen iPhones now, then I am going to tell you to get your fanboy hat off and look at things as they are!
If you are willing to pay $999 or $1099 for the base models of the iPhone XS or XS Max though, the 3D Touch is still retained there. This of course, leads us to the third conclusion; Apple just made a 3-year old technology premium-grade! The company is getting more and more ridiculous, one year at a time.
The iPhone is one of the best inventions of Apple. But not every iPhone user is aware of its full potential. If you are curious about what the iPhone can do for you, we have rounded up five best tips for you.
1. Swiping down from the middle of your display panel activates spotlight search. From here you can search for anything on your phone with one simple gesture. Like a file or setting and you can even get web results too.
2. You can create custom alerts for different people so you always know who is calling or texting you without even having to look at your phone. Go into your contacts app > Tap on the person you want, tap edit and then click either ringtone or text tone. From here you can choose any ringtones or text tones to play whenever that person calls or send a text message to you.
3. Need to read a smaller text? Use your iPhone as a magnifying glass. Go into settings > General > Accessibility > Magnifier. From now on, you can triple-click the home button to turn the iPhone's camera into a magnifying glass and your screen into a viewfinder?
4. Facetime audio is Apple's alternate option for traditional phone calls and these don't cost you anything. Click on the contact you want to talk, and if the face time is available, click on the phone symbol next to the video camera symbol. Face time audio operates over the Internet via WiFi or cellular data and these calls sound far clearer than the traditional calls if you are talking to someone outside the country.
5. You can turn your iPhone into flashlight without even opening the smartphone. When you wake up your iPhone, a button in the bottom-left corner of the screen shows a picture of a flashlight. Press into it, and your phone will use its rear flash as a torch.
The video gaming industry started developing quickly in the early 2000s. All main editors, developers, and gaming media were formed or got back on track at that time. A job in a gaming magazine was a dream of every gamer then.
But the gaming market was changing fast. Generations of consoles changed, the DVD/Blu-ray format became irrelevant, having given way to purchasing and downloading games on Steam and subsequently on other shops. Games were becoming more expensive but more accessible and casual. While the cost of magazines and other publications was becoming bigger and the payback was becoming lower and lower. All large gaming media were slowly sinking into oblivion. Together with it, a dream of thousands of boys and girls to make gaming an official way of profit disappeared.
But don't give up! Now, it's the second decade of the twenty-first century and it means that new time provides new opportunities.
If you ask gamers born at the end of the 90s or in the early 2000s where they find out information about games, watch game reviews and others, they will definitely point to YouTube.
YouTube has become one of the main killers of old gaming media but it has also founded a new industry. The most popular blogger PewDiePie has become popular with the help of video games.
As a result, gaming bloggers emerged instead of gaming journalists.
It is a qualitative step forward because unlike a journalist who is employed, a blogger works on himself/herself. And it has several obvious advantages:
- You can play what you want
- There are no stylistic or censorship restrictions
- You don't need to make reports to the date
- A fully free creative process
How Much Can a Gaming Blogger Earn?
However, we can't say reliably how much a gaming blogger earns. It depends on how many subscribers and views you have. PewDiePie is a dollar millionaire and holds the first place among the richest bloggers by Forbes.
Certainly, a blogger with 100 subscribers will earn almost nothing.
Also, an income depends on what advertisements a blogger integrates into his/her videos, how many and so on.
Gaming bloggers who have a small but stable audience, which amounts a few thousand people, can earn 1000$ a month and more.
It has to be known that a viewer wants a show, so the brighter and more aggressive your play is, the more viewers you receive.
Popular Services for Gaming Bloggers
Streaming services are another popular service for earning on playing video games. The most popular one is Twitch (to be honest, it is worth to say that YouTube has recently added a possibility of hosting streams). A stream is an online record. Streams play video games in front of the public, which follows them through a web-camera, comment a game and speak with the audience. Because it is way more difficult to advertise something in this format and the service doesn't pay for views, the streamers' main source of income is a donation. Donations are a contribution of viewers, their payment to a streamer for the entertainment he/she provides.
As you can understand, such way of income is unstable enough, creates psychological pressure and depends on many factors. Women are the most popular streamers. The more revealing their outfits and behavior, the more viewers and donations they have.
But according to popular streamers, this way of income has become their main job and brings very big money. Sometimes, they earn more than $1000 a day with the help of donations and many of them actively use their social media pages, which may double a profit.
To sum up, it can be said for a reason that if you can't live without video games and want to connect your professional life with it, you have such a chance in 2019. You don't even need special knowledge and skills to start doing this. You only need a gaming device, an Internet connection, and a camera. If you have charisma and you love what you do, your channel will soon bring significant money, on which you can live. The main thing is not to give up at the beginning and move forward to your dream!
While you have to make an initial deposit at almost every online casino, you can also make a good deal of money by taking advantage of free spin offers. You can use this money to finance play online slots of your choice, or simply pocket the earnings and quit while you're ahead. To get the most out of free spins, you need to know the bonus structure of the online casino and you need to have enough patience to wait for the spins to pay off.
No Deposit Casino Bonuses
The first thing you need to do in order to start making money off free spins is to look for casinos that offer a no deposit bonus. This is just as it sounds-a bonus where you don't have to deposit any money into your account. These bonuses usually come in the form of free spins at the casino's slot games. The idea is that you'll enjoy the slots so much that you'll come back to spend real money on them. No deposit bonuses often come as a result of special events or weekly bonus opportunities, so keep your eye out for offerings at the online casino of your choice.
Initial Deposit Bonuses
The vast majority of online casinos also offer bonuses on your initial deposit. This usually comes in the form of both amatching credit and free spins. The matching credit means that you get some percentage of your deposit amount as extra money that you can use at the casino. In many cases, the credit is up to 100% of your first deposit. This means that you could put down the minimum initial deposit and then use your bonus credit and free spins to rack up some more money at the slots.
For example, online casino to play for real money in Australia, CasinoChan, offers free spins for a variety of slot games as a package with their deposit bonuses.
You won't usually win a lot of money from using free spins, but the winnings can pile up if you choose you stay patient.
Look for casinos that offer free spins as part of their bonus structure and which have special events that give you more opportunities. You can then start to earn real money from virtual slots.
Do you want to earn $100 daily from home by working just for a few hours? Then you are in the right place. It always feels better to work in home condition. And what's more, comforting is when you have to work for 2 hours only. That sure sounds good.

You can prepare that room for the guest and can find tenants for the room. This method is more like a passive income than normal income methods.
It is not necessary that you have to keep tenants on a monthly basis. If you want you can also charge per night as well (depending on the place you are living in).
Invest in real estate
The real estate business can be considered more like an alternative investment. You can buy and sell the houses in these methods. And the profit that comes with this business made it hard to ignore this method. This method is more like a long term investment, as your property can be sold in a matter of months and sometime it may take more than a couple of years.
Once you become proficient enough, you just need to work for a few hours a day making phone calls to seal the deal and that it. You will be independent and self-employed.
Invest in share market
The share market has always been a place to making fortune. Take high risks and you will be rewarded with high profits. The share market is growing at a rapid rate. This change in the market has given rise to may platform. These platforms help their users with assistance in the decision-making process. bitqt is one such platform, from where you can use cryptocurrencies to place your bid in the share market to buy shares of the company.
Start your blog
Starting a blog site can be the best thing you can do if you love sharing your experiences. It is a way to share your experience and knowledge and in return, you will reward with the loyal audience on your website. Yes, it is hard and takes some to grow your audience and monetize your site. But once you are over with it, you will be glad you chose this career. Sharing your experience from your home that's all you will ever be needed for a blog site.
Social media experts
Social media is one of the trendy topics today. The social media platform is the busiest place on earth. With more than billions of active users, it provides a medium for the companies to interact with their audiences. If you think that you are proficient enough, you can use this opportunity to build your carer as a social media expert and can outsource your skill to the needy companies.
In daily commutes, normal communication between colleagues and co-workers is not for everyone's fancy. So why not go for jobs that you can do from home. Working from home means that you can take your own calls and work as per your own condition.
Samsung is the leading smartphone business right now, but there was a time when Motorola was the undisputed king of smartphones, before being dethroned by Nokia. While that time may have truly come and gone, the Moto RAZR continues to be one of the most iconic smartphones of all time for more reasons than one. If you were lucky enough to have used a Moto RAZR back in the day and you secretly regret not having anything similar available for purchase today, we have good news for you. According to multiple sources, most notably the Wall Street Journal, a new Moto RAZR is all set to be released, but as an Android smartphone this time around! While the report is still shrouded in mystery, go through the following to know everything that has been rumored and reported about the upcoming Moto Razr so far.
· It will feature a foldable display, instead of the bottom half being a keypad
· The first batch of 200,000 units might be exclusive to the US and only Verizon at that
· The price of the smartphone is expected to be around the $1,500 mark
· It could launch next month, i.e. in February
Personally, I can't wait to experience this device first hand, provided Lenovo doesn't end up ruining it, because that is a highly likely scenario here.
Surprisingly enough, Samsung started rolling out the August security patch to the Galaxy J7 Prime on the first day of August, even before Google but that's a different report which you can read here.
