Phone storage is one of the most important things that people require when they are dealing with smartphones. Some phones now come with as much as 64GB of memory and somehow, we always seem to fill it up. However, as a gambler, you can download as many apps as you want from the best nz casino sites because casino apps don't take too much space. I this article, we explore the ways you can get more storage in your android phone without having to delete everything. More often, we get carried away installing apps that we don't really need sometimes, as well as taking photos and videos.
Move photos and video off internal storage
Unbeknownst to many people, photos and videos actually take up a lot of space on your phone. This is why we suggest that you install a microSD card. After, make sure that you move all your photos and videos to the memory card. Also, you must set the memory card as the default location for all new photos and videos.
Free up space on Android with Google Photos
You will need to download Google Photos and set it to automatically backup all photos and videos over Wi-Fi. You may also want to backup your WhatsApp messages. As soon as everything is backed up onto Google Photos, you can go ahead and delete the local copies from your phone.
Delete WhatsApp media
A lot of online casino apps require a lot of space. This s why all gamblers must always make sure that they have enough space before they can think of playing on mobile casinos online.
You actually prevent WhatsApp from downloading any media automatically. However, you might be surprised to find out that the app actually stores all sent media on the phone.
To clear this media, go to your local storage and look for the WhatsApp folder. Next, go to Media, then WhatsApp Images and finally, Sent. From there, you will be able to delete all sent media, thereby releasing a lot of space on your android device. You can also delete any duplicates that you would have uploaded to Google Photos.
The next flagship smartphone from Huawei is coming and if the rumors have any truth to them, it's going to be a very capable device. Leaks on Weibo seem to be indicating that the Huawei Mate 9 will be powered by the manufacturer's in-house HiSilicon Kirin 960 Octa-core 64-bit processor and six gigabytes of RAM. There will allegedly be different versions of the Mate 9 and the 6GB RAM version will sport 256GB of internal storage to go with all that memory and processing power. There could also be a more modest version of the smartphone that will sport the same chipset, but 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. All versions might also be powered by a big 4,000mAh battery.
Camera has been the highlight of the Mate 9 in all recent rumors since they have partnered up with Leica, the German camera maker for providing a rumoured dual camera setup at the back. The two 20-megapixel sensors from Leica will supposedly work together to provide stunning details even in low light, thanks to the f/2.0 aperture. The 5.9-inch (QHD resolution) metal-clad phablet will run on Android 7.0 and the OEM will make sure that customers get a LOT of colors to choose from while buying the smartphone. Apart from the 256GB/6GB version ($700/4700 yuan) and the 128GB/4GB version ($580/3899 yuan), there will also be a more affordable 64GB/4GB version ($480/3199 yuan) as well.

Cloud storage is the future because all physical mediums of storage are subject to corruption and failure over the course of time. In recognition of this fact, a number of companies have started offering cloud storage services for storing photos, videos, documents and other file formats for a price. Yogile is the latest addition to that list of cloud storage services, but it claims to offer more for less through simplicity of the interface and fair pricing.
No Need to Sacrifice on Quality
Some cloud services compress the photos to make them smaller and that translates to a significant loss in picture quality and details. Even if the photos are decompressed by the service when the client downloads it again, some details might still be lost permanently. Yogile simply eliminates the chance of that ever happening by storing every photo in its original resolution and size.
Easy and Secured Sharing
Yogile allows direct sharing of the photos and albums from the easy to use interface itself. This means that you and all the other family members will be able to add to the albums simultaneously from any device by emailing the photos to the specific email address assigned to each album. If you want to keep a particular album secret or private, nobody will see the album except you and password protection is always an option for restricting access to just the adults in the family as well.
Photo Editing Options
Although it isn't the most groundbreaking feature of Yogile, it's nice to know that the user can do basic editing right from the app itself. It even has a number of decent filters for users to experiment with.
Accessible Across All Major Platforms
You will be able to access features of the Yogile photo storage service from Android, iOS and Windows devices, without sacrificing on any of its features.
Developed by Monon B.V., Yogile offers a simple but effective cloud storage service for photos at an affordable rate of only $44.99/month, which comes to less than even $4/month. If you are looking for a dedicated and secure cloud storage option for all your photos, there's no reason to not recommend the Yogile app, especially because of the competitive pricing.
iPhones are awesome smartphones for more reasons than one, but compared to Android devices, they are somewhat limited in what they can offer to the user unfortunately. Perhaps two of the biggest gripes against iOS devices is the OEM's complete omission of the expandable storage slot and how complex, as well as limited iTunes feels while trying to transfer iPhone files or restore them.
As iPhones do not support external storage devices via USB OTG either, Apple makes sure that we are not left with too many other options either!
Why is It Important to Free Up iPhone Storage?
All iPhone users need to transfer iPhone files on a regular basis because there are multiple advantages in doing so. Some of them can be highlighted as follows.
• Media, contacts, messages, etc. would never be lost, even in case the phone crashes, gets stolen/lost or is damaged somehow
• As there is no way to expand the storage, backups allow users to free up space on iPhone
• The closer you get towards filling up the maximum storage capacity of your device, the slower it will become
Isn't iTunes Good Enough to Backup iPhone Data?
iTunes is not bad at what it does really, but the problem is once again in how limited Apple's software is in the features that it offers to iPhone users.
Even for completing tasks that iTunes is supposed to, there is no guarantee that the dreaded iTunes Error 54 won't show up. When that happens, your phone and your computer will stop syncing with each other, unless the issue is resolved.
On the other hand, iCloud's free storage caps out at only 5GB, at which point, you can pay to get more, though it's still not completely safe. Apple will essentially delete the data on its servers, if the account holder misses payments. There is a better alternative to paying for iPhone storage through your nose though, which is what we are going to discuss next.
How DearMob iPhone Manager is a Faster, Easier and Better Alternative to iTunes
DearMob iPhone Manager offers a fast, easy way for users to backup iPhone data seamlessly and free up iPhone storage in the process. The software does so while boosting data safety with encoding, making DearMob possibly the best iTunes alternative for Windows and MacOS available right now.
Interestingly, the iPhone manager brings so much more to the table that iTunes simply cannot. To understand what we are talking about here, let's discuss some of its unique features next.
DearMob iPhone Manager protects your data by securing it against any unauthorized use. Even if any of the backed up information is stolen or lost, no one but you will be able to decrypt the password protected files.
Faster and Easier
It is possible to create a backup of all your iPhone (any iOS device) data, with the click of a single onscreen button on DearMob. The same is true if you decide to restore the data back onto your new iPhone, or even the old one for that matter!
Selective data backup and restore between an iPhone and Mac/PC is also more intuitive, less complex and faster than it is with iTunes. While iTunes frequently freezes while handling transfer of regular media, DearMob can transfer iPhone files at a superfast speed of 2.5GB per second!
If you just switched to a new iPhone from an old one, the iPhone manager can easily be used to directly transfer everything from iPhone to iPhone, making the backup and restore process an even faster process than it usually is.
DearMob Makes the iPhone a More Accessible Device for the User
Other than letting users backup and transfer a very limited number of supported file types, iTunes doesn't allow us to do much of anything really. On the flipside of things, DearMob comes with all of the following and then some.
• It supports any and all media formats that iTunes doesn't
• The iPhone manager can be used to change the file format of any media file (including 4K & 8K videos), so that iOS can recognize it
• DearMob also allows seamless conversion and both-way transfer of podcasts, apps, eBooks, messages, music, ringtones, voice recordings, calendar data and just about everything else
• Supports Drag and drop transfer; a huge bonus for iOS users!
• DearMob can compress large media files to save space on your limited storage
Consider the fact that this isn't even the complete list of functions that the DearMob iPhone Manager can help you with, but iTunes can't. Combined with the extra security, easy-to-use interface and fast transfers, these additional features really does make the DearMob iPhone Manager a significantly better alternative to iTunes for both Windows and MacOS.
Microsoft Office 365 subscribers will receive unlimited OneDrive cloud storage going forward. OneDrive subscription plans that include the sweet cloud storage option kick off at $6.99 per month.
The new arrangement will begin rolling out to users with Home, Personal, and University accounts beginning today. OneDrive for Business customers will have to wait until 2015 to get the treatment. Unlimited cloud storage is bound to make the already capable Microsoft Office 365 an even more attractive proposition.
Samsung promised to use a new UFC 2.0 storage in Galaxy S6 that will increase the data read/write speed 2.7x faster than normal storage. UFC 2.0 uses "Command Queue" technology (as seen in Solid State Drives) for accelerating the speed of command execution. The device has no microSD, so the the performance test will run on its internal storage.
Here's the benchmark results for the data read/write on the Samsung Galaxy S6.
As you can see, the new UFC 2.0 storage brought quite an improvement over the previous generation smartphones and the smartphone's performance could have been seriously compromised if a microSD read or write was also in the equation. We know that cheap microSD storage is ideal for backup purposes and that is hardly going to change anytime soon, but perhaps it's a fair guess that its days within high end smartphones are numbered.
Recent rumors about the next upcoming smartphones suggest another low-budget smartphone by the HMD Global called Nokia 2.4. The device was spotted at Geekbench in the last month. A fresh report by Nokia Power User has revealed some important spec information on the device. As per leaks the highest variant of the Nokia 2.4 will have 3GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It will also come in 2GB RAM and 32GB storage variants. The device will be available in three color options such as grey, blue, and purple.
The Nokia 2.4 is reported to have a big 4,500mAh battery that is enough to keep it alive all day long with a single charge with support to fast charging. The phone features a 6.5-inch screen with 271 PPI and IPS LCD. The phone is powered by the octa-core 2GH MediaTek Helio P22 processor. The device supports dual SIM options. The expected launch date in India is around October this year but this isn't confirmed yet. Nokia 2.4 might be available fewer Rs. 10,000 in the Indian market. Coming to the FCC listing, the report states that the Nokia 2.4 has four variants - TA-1277, TA-1270, TA-1274, and TA-1275, out of which the TA-1270 is a dual-SIM variant. The rest of the specifications remain the same across all the variants.
According to the leaks, the Nokia 2.4 will feature a 13-MP primary camera with a 2-MP dual camera like the predecessor Nokia 2.3 phone. It houses a front-camera of 5-MP for selfies. The phone will come with an Android 10 operating system out of the box. Although we are not sure about its launch date yet, it could be one of the phones that HMD Global may launch at the IFA 2020 tech trade show in the next month.
Samsung disappointed quite a few buyers by limiting the Samsung Galaxy Note 5's storage at 64GB. It added to the frustration, as there was no miscoSD slot in the flagship device. The company has unveiled a special Winter Edition Galaxy Note 5, the only Note smartphone with 128GB of internal storage.
The new Note 5 will feature a 5.7-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) Super Amoled display and inclusion of the stylus can make this note a threat to the Apple's iPhone 6S Plus, which already comes in a 128GB variant and features a 5.5-inch screen. But, the Winter Edition needs to connect with consumers outside of Korea to boost the Samsung's sluggish sales numbers.
This device is powered by company's own Exynos 7420 octa-core SoC, Mali-T760 MP8 GPU, and backed by 4GB of RAM.. But, note that the microSD slot is still not available. Other features include a 16-megapixel snapper in the back with OIS (f/1.9 aperture), a 5-megapixel camera in the front. The battery will be non-removable and it'll be of 3000 mAh.
It can connected via 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, and other standard connectivity option. This winter edition will also have a fingerprint scanner. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Winter Special Edition is available at KRW 999,900 and is being sold via SKT and KT mobile carriers.
As rumor has it, we are now less than two months away from the official release date (February 21st) for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. It is only natural that two of the biggest and most anticipated Android phones of 2016 will have a lot of buzz around them. Some of those "leaked reports" are expecting the Samsung flagships to be waterproof as well as have IP67 certified dustproof builds.
The Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge were criticized by a lot of users for their weak batteries and Samsung seems to have heard those criticisms with diligence. According to Evan Blass or @evleaks, 3000 mAh and 3600 mAh will be the capacity of the non-removable batteries on the S7 and the S7 Edge respectively. He further states that the S7 will go from 0-100% charge in just 2 hours, while the S7 Edge will do the same in 2.2 hours.
It will excite customers around the world to know that the beloved and missed MicroSD card slot is rumoured to make a return with the Galaxy S7 series. Another speculation about the two prime Samsung smartphones of the future states the possibility of dual 12.2 megapixel Britecell camera sensors on the back of the phone with f/1.7 lens aperture. Although we are inclined to think that Samsung may opt for its in-house Exynos 8890 SoC over the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, it isn't a fact yet.
It was a big disappointment to many of the Samsung fans who were waiting eagerly for the Note 7, when it came with just 4GB of RAM and the same SD 820 SoC seen in the S7-series. However, latest reports seem to be indicating that the Asian markets such as China will actually be getting the 6GB variant after all. The rumors were further bolstered when president of Samsung Mobiles, Koh Dong-jin said, "We are considering launching Note 7 with a 128 GB internal storage capacity for the Chinese market, even though the handset made its global debut with a 64 GB memory,"
Although this statement by Koh Dong-jin does not exactly mention anything about a 6GB RAM variant, he did state further that, "We will continue to accept different needs from each marketplace, and respond by releasing localized products by changing memory capacity or color." As you can probably guess, this strategy is a direct result of stiff competition from Chinese manufacturers like LeEco, Vivo, and Xiaomi. All of this was declared during the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea with a price tag of 988,900 WON or roughly $897. Apart from the Silver Titanium, Blue coral and Gold Platinum colors, the Note 7 will also be available in Black Onyx from October onwards.

India gets another exclusive device from Samsung in the budget category as the OEM announced the J2 Pro today. Samsung seems to be introducing a series of new smartphones to the subcontinent with the "Pro" moniker, boosted by slightly better hardware than their regular versions. As of now, we have the J2 (2016) Pro, J3 (2016) Pro, On5 Pro and the On7 Pro.
We can see two major hardware upgrades in the Pro version, as compared to the regular edition and they are in the RAM and internal storage department of the device. The J2 Pro will sport 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, as compared to the 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage on the J2 (2016). All other features, including the 1.5GHz Cortex A7 quad core processor and the 720p display remain the same.
In case you are interested in buying the smartphone, you can only do so from the Indian online retailer, Snapdeal for INR 9.890 ($150). The three color options of gold, silver and black are pretty much what we have come to expect from Samsung's low to mid range phones nowadays.

Samsung is gearing up to mass produce the first ever 256GB embedded memory module as a Universal Flash Storage 2.0. Performance is a big advancement over the recent SATA-based solid-state-drives used in high-end PCs.
The UFS memory from Samsung offers ultra-fast speed storage based around their V-NAND flash memory chips. The UFS memory is capable of performing 45,000 input operations and 40,000 output operations each second. The UFS memory is twice the speed of the previous UFS memory type. The latest version uses dual lanes of data transfer to create speeds of 850MB/s which is approximately twice the speed of SATA-based SSDs. For sequential writing, the speed is lower at 260MB/s.
One of the main benefits of the latest version of 256GB UFS memory is that it will better support playback of 4K video content. Tablets now have split screen display technology with 4K video playback that can be combined with a second area of the screen being used to display an app. This tends to push the hardware to the limit. With 4K video, the data read needs to be faster because a 4K video contains so much more compressed image and audio data. This audio/visual data needs to be read, decompressed and played in real-time.
Samsung has just gone into full production of their UFS memory 2.0 chips which will become available later in 2016.
With certain Samsung devices like the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6, Samsung has a deal with Microsoft to offer 100 GB of free OneDrive cloud storage with every new device.
The deal to push the free cloud services wasn't just out of kindness on the part of the Redmond company. It is troublesome to move files to another cloud service later, so it provides a type of lock-in for consumers too.
The deal also included pre-installed apps for Word, PowerPoint and Excel on Samsung devices to encourage user adoption of Office 365 subscriptions. The period of coverage for the free storage is likely to be 2 years or longer.
Here's how you get the free 100 GB of cloud storage with OneDrive:
1. Check that your Samsung device comes pre-installed with the app for OneDrive for Android. If it doesn't, download it from the Google Play store.
2. Open the OneDrive app and either login with an existing Microsoft account or register for a new one.
3. Approve the terms and conditions, make a left swipe inside the app, choose 'Settings' and 'Personal' from the menu, and verify that your quote is now 115 GB. This should be 15GB standard free allocation, plus the additional 100GB.
4. If you're already logged into OneDrive, you only need to swipe to the left, and go to 'Settings' and 'Claim your free 100 GB storage' to activate it.
Any eligible devices will now have access to the additional storage for 2 years or more.
It seems just yesterday when the Galaxy Note 7 was released and eventually discontinued, but we are now inching closer to the release date of the Galaxy S8. Granted that no date has yet been set in stone, it cannot be more than just a few months away at this point. Today, we have a new report/rumor for you, straight out of China (Weibo) and reported by TechTastic. It states that the S8 will sport 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, along with the upcoming Samsung-manufactured Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC.
Some of the other rumors surrounding the S8 include a dual rear camera module, an edge-to-edge pressure-sensitive 2K/4K curved display, a brand new AI virtual assistant and Quick Charge 4.0. It will be interesting to see whether Samsung launches a separate Exynos version of the Galaxy S8 as well, since the Korean giant itself is producing the SD 835 chip for Qualcomm this year. Some reports are also suggesting that there might even be a 6.2-inch version of the S8 next year, but I am not so sure about that!

Now that we already have a pretty good idea about what the Galaxy S8 will look like, leakster @mmdj_china has just leaked the RAM details and the exact release date set for the two smartphones in US and China. Both the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ will be sporting 6GB of RAM, at least in China. We think that this will be the same in all regions though, given that the Galaxy C9 Pro recently came out with 6 gigs of RAM. Both devices will have a 64GB and a 128GB variant along with expandable memory card slots.
As far as the release date is concerned, according to the leakster, the S8 series will go on sale in the US on April 14. It was mentioned that in China, the S8 and the S8+ will see release in the 15th week of the year. It is a rather strange way to say that the two devices will be available for purchase form the third week of April. These are the latest developments regarding the Galaxy S8, if you want to see the rest of the specs and rumors, check it out here.

Good news for our Indian readers; the Galaxy S8+ with beastly specs like 128GB ROM and 6GB RAM has now been launched in the country by Samsung. The black-only phones will be up for pre-order on Flipkart from June 2 and will be go on sale from June 9 across all offline and online partners of Samsung. Although it was previously believed that Samsung will keep this version of the smartphone exclusive to South Korea, it seems like the company has changed its plans. Keep in mind though, the 128GB/6GB Galaxy S8+ will set you back by Rs 74,990 or roughly $1165! If you thought the iPhones were expensive in India, Sammy doesn't seem to be too far behind either.
Now that the initial excitement of the news is over, the question is, should you get it? For a premium of Rs 10,000 ($155) more than the price of the regular S8+, you are getting double the storage and 2GB of extra RAM and to be honest, it wouldn't be a bad deal at all, if the S8+ was already not so expensive in the country. Crazy taxes in India make foreign made electronic devices cost way more than they do in the US or just about any other country and the S8/S8+ is no exception to this rule either. Nevertheless, if you can afford it and you wanted a S8+, I don't see why you shouldn't buy one either.

There is a way to get 1TB Google Drive storage for 2 years without paying a dime. And that path starts with reviewing Google Maps. One reddit user has reported in the r/Android subreddit that he was offered 1TB Google Drive storage after becoming rank 4 Google Map Local Guide. To become a rank 4 Local Guide you need to acquire 200 or more points by reviewing places, uploading images, rectifying wrong information, resolving queries posed by users in your area and adding new locations.
If this offer entices you, don't think that you can spam your way to gain ranks as a Local Guide. The tendency to help out people with thoughtful and genuine reviews must come naturally to you. You will enjoy this process, if you are someone who would generally post a Yelp review after visiting a place. Google actually filters out low quality and inappropriate reviews to deliver maximum value to their users and keep the ecosystem clean. In a nutshell - authentic reviews should get you to rank 4 along with free storage that's worth more than $200.
Do check out Google's official website if you are really interested in becoming a Local Guide and learning the added benefits.
Google isn't very keen to keep its devices or specs a secret. Sometimes Google itself leaks the news about the upcoming devices. And that's why we know more than a few things about the latest Google Pixel 4a even before its launch. Early last month, Google Pixel 4a was shown off in a high definition hands-on video. While many of the specs are already known, there are still a few things left to be revealed. A new leak is going to cover what was missed in the earlier leaks.
Google Pixel devices are usually sold in three color options - white, black, and a unique color. We have already seen dark blue, not pink, purple, orange, and many more. The latest leak suggests that the Pixel 4a will also be available in a light shade of blue called Barely Blue other than regular colors- white and Jet black.
The other leak is related to the storage option. We already know that the Pixel 4a will have 64GB of UFS 2.1 storage that is good enough to load apps at a much faster rate. Now, we know that there will also be a 128GB storage option. UFS 2.1 is not mentioned but it is safe to assume that it will be using the same storage technology as for the 64GB model. The device would be using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor with Adreno 618GPU.
On the rear side, you can find a 12MP camera lens with an LED flash. The camera is also capable of recording 4K videos. The front camera will be 8MP with video stabilization. The phone uses 4G network support and has a Dual SIM support option. The ports are USB Type-C, 3.5mm headphone jack. The battery is 3,080mAh that is okay if you are not a heavy user. The smartphone comes with the latest version of the Android operation system by default - Android 10. The device is expected to be something around $400 for consumers.
Google launched its own photos service, Google Photos, with its own separate App. The New Google Photos service will provide you with UNLIMITED storage for your personal photos and videos. Not just this, Your pictures and videos won't be compressed either, as this new service can store at up to 16MP for images and 1080p for video. That's plenty big enough for most typical consumers and will still allow for high quality prints of photos.
With the new Photos app, it will now be possible to send a group of photos by simply hitting the new "get a link" button. This will create a custom link to a web gallery of the photos you have selected. That link can be sent to anyone and opened in any web browser without having to log in or download an app.
Google Photos Official Change-log :
Google Photos is the home for all your photos and videos, searchable and organized by the people, places, and things that matter.
• VISUAL SEARCH: Your photos are now searchable by the people, places and things that appear in your photos. Looking for that fish taco you ate in Hawaii? Just search "Hawaii" or "food" to find it even if it doesn't have a description. Note: Face grouping is not available in all countries.
• AUTO BACKUP: Keep all your photos and videos safe and accessible from any device. Choose free, unlimited cloud storage available at high quality, or store up to 15GB original size for free (shared across your Google account).

The App is currently live on the Play Store, You can also get the Official Google Photos APK from the link below.
Oppo launched F15 with a single 8GB RAM model earlier this year, but now a new model with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage has been listed on Amazon. Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom tweeted about the 4GB + 128GB variant of the Oppo F15 that is priced at Rs. 16,990. He showed two phones side by side that was originally launched in two different colors - lightning black and Unicorn white. The rumored blazing blue model seems to be missing. Notable, the Amazon listing is for the Unicorn white variant. The page doesn't show the price. However, reports suggest that it would be under Rs. 18,000 as expect for the phone, specs remain the same.
The Oppo F15 runs on Android 9 Pie with ColorOS 6.1.2 on the top and supports the dual-SIM option. It features a 6.4-inch full HD+ AMOLED display with 1080 x 2400 pixels and a 20:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, there is an octa-core MediaTek Helio P70 paired with Mali G72 MP3 GPU and 4GB of RAM. The existing model features 8GB of RAM.
The Oppo F15 has a quad-camera system on the rear side that includes a 48-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel secondary sensor, a 2-megapixel for portrait shots, and a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor. The front camera houses a 16-megapixel sensor in the notch. n terms of storage, Oppo has provided 128GB of UFS 2.1 onboard storage that is expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB). Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS/ A-GPS, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The sensors include an accelerometer, ambient light, gyroscope, magnetometer, pedometer, and a proximity sensor. The Oppo F15 packs a 4,000mAh battery that supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology. Lastly, the phone measures 160.2x73.3x7.9mm and weigh 172 grams.
Amazon has a mouth-watering offer on cloud storage - as a part of the Black Friday deals, they are offering unlimited storage. For just $5, one can get one year of unlimited cloud storage, that includes photos, videos, and documents. This price can drop to $1 if the storage will be used only for media.
This comes at a time when Microsoft OneDrive storage was downgraded from unlimited to 1 TB. Meanwhile, the free tier gives only 5GB of storage before users are asked to upgrade. In case of Google Drive to store more than 15 GB, users are asked to make payment.
The reason given by Microsoft for removing its unlimited storage was that some users were uploading their entire movie collections, among other things, and there-by resulting in 14,000 times more than the amount of space used by an average user.
Now let's get back back to Amazon's attractive $5 deal, whose regular price for unlimited storage tier is $54.99. A sweet $50 savings, thanks to this Black Friday deal. In the $1 deal, users are also allowed to upload 15 GB documents apart from the media files.
This hot deal will surely get expired soon. So get your hands on it before deal goes out of stock.
Dropbox has revamped its Pro plan with more storage, improved link sharing and remote wipe. The Dropbox Pro plan remains at $10 a month (or $100 per year) but you get 1TB of storage for that.
Having a Pro account lets you share password-protected links. Sharing links is arguably one of the best features of Dropbox and now you won't have to worry about the link getting in the wrong hands.
You can get some extra peace of mind by setting up an expiration date for shared links. You can pick 7 days, 30 days or a custom period. You can also adjust the expiration date later if you change your mind.
Another way to share files without giving up too much control over them is by using view-only shared folders. You can enable this for select members so that they always get the latest version of your files but will not be able to change them.
Microsoft has increased the amount of free space you get if you use OneDrive on your phone. Previously the free space used to be 15GB but now you'll get 30GB instead.
To get the additional space, you will have to install the OneDrive application, if you haven't already, and enable camera uploads, which will automatically upload the photos taken by your phone to OneDrive. This works on iOS, Android, and of course Windows Phone.
It must be noted that the space is split between 15GB for the main account and 15GB just for camera uploads, so it's not a unified space accessible for everything. Also, the offer is valid till the end of September but is available to new and existing OneDrive users. So if you use OneDrive with camera upload, you should see the additional space.
Although the launch of Nexus 6p didn't exactly follow the disasters faced by previous variants last year, it didn't go smoothly. Those lucky enough to grab the opportunity before the phone got completely sold out online are now wondering about shipment date of the phone owing to the impending delays. For those who wanted to go through the reviews to make up the mind were disappointed with the out of stock label on most of the variants for weeks. Now, it's been almost 2 months since the Nexus 6P (and 5X) launched and it seems Google is finally able to meet the demand.
Right now the Google Store has all the Nexus 6p devices in stock and you are free to choose any kind of color and storage configuration. We actually informed about this a few days ago, but were so elated about the elusive 64GB Frost white model being available that we somehow missed to cover the rest. As we head into the weekend, we just wanted to jog your mind regarding the in-stock Nexus devices (seems to stay like this for sometime).
The Nexus 6P price starts at $500 for the 32GB, $550 for the 64GB, and $600 for will get you the 128GB variant. If you wanted to get the official black case, it is also in-stock.
