    The Finnish startup that couldn't launch its tablet out to its backers is still pushing its software mission out to partners wherever it can get them. In this case, it's India's Intex and the debut of its first Sailfish OS 2.0 phone, the Aqua Fish. For the budget conscious, it may be a worthy phone — a Snapdragon 210 ...

    Google Maps, being the robust product it is, can utilize several streams of data at once. Navigation is especially a monster on data plans. But now, you can put a leash on that data use with a new Wi-Fi only mode. The feature is being shuttled to users slowly, but it does what it says on the tin can. Maps will mostly ...

    Let's face it: you probably most dreaded three words in that headline. "Back to School". Back to torture. Back to long hours sitting at letting numbers and passages hit your skull. Back to making yourself just a bit smarter with the process getting all the more harder. Fortunately, technology can help dull the pain and ...

    If you're familiar with this leak, it's because this one's pretty much looking like the last one. New pictures are up on Xperian.ir of what's assumed to be the Sony F8331, a to-be-named device in the Xperia X series. As with a photo leak from a week ago, the front and back of the device are shown, but this time with ...

    The Windows 10 app ecosystem might appreciate this jolt of java.

If you have a device with that new OS, you can pretty much do ...

    You already have enough to plug into your power strips. Putting in two chargers for your smartphone and smartwatch just to have them charge at the same time shouldn't have to be a problem. Samsung may be taking a crack at that issue with a new patent application at the US Patent and Trademark Office. A filing last week ...

    EDIT: Minor corrections were made to our battery stats. We’re aiming to knock out two birds with one stone in this review as these two phones are more alike than they are different. A small handful of hardware options separate the two, but otherwise we get a pretty clear idea of where the manufacturer wants to take ...

    Neither Niantic nor The Pokemon Company are public traded companies, but Nintendo, which has stakes in both companies, is one. The co-developers of the highly popular Pokemon GO mobile game pay licensing fees to Nintendo. That said, even with loads of in-app purchases, it appears that most of the revenue will come to ...

    Now that we know literally everything about the Galaxy Note 7, it’s time to dig a little deeper and try to find out more details on Samsung’s VR hardware-advancing plans. Rumor has it the Korean tech giant wants to run with the big dogs in addition to strengthening its low-cost domination, though we’re afraid ...

    Just when you thought there was no way the 2016 iPhone rumor games could get interesting again, following (too) many weeks of essentially the same blurry live pics, questionable renders and videos starring various dummy units and mockups, a credible release timeframe got (ev-)leaked. Evan Blass quickly narrowed the ...

    Bargain? Steal? Hot deal? It feels like a stretch to attach any of those descriptions to the first ever big Sony Xperia X Performance US discount. Even calling the savings big is a bit of an overstatement, although $120 can buy you more than a few (thousand) Pokémon GO coins. The thing is the X Performance started off ...

    If there’s one thing preventing Samsung these days from selling low to mid-end Android gear in comparable numbers to premium members of the Galaxy S and Note smartphone families, it’s probably an acute lack of identity. Everybody likes choice and diversity, but not brand dilution and disorientation, which is exactly ...

    While it may or may not get the opportunity to follow up the Nexus 6P with another Google-co-branded phablet this year, Huawei will definitely launch a few more Android high-enders over the next months after the recent introductions of the Honor 8, V8, as well as the non-Honor-named P9 and P9 Plus. Both the Mate S and ...

In terms of virtual reality experiences however, the HTC Vive recently made headlines by supporting the world’s most immersive music record, as well as Fruit ...

We already know both these devices, although following in the footsteps of the LG-made Nexus 5X and Huawei-produced N6P, are ...

    If RAM is a big differentiator for budget buyers these days, perhaps it's now wonder that another K5 Note may be headed for India, but with a twist. The Lenovo K5 Note was launched in China six months ago with a MediaTek Helio P10 and 2GB of RAM. It was more than decent enough at ¥1,099 (approximately $170 or Rs. ...

It's been a trendy thing to include on this year's big flagships, why not continue that trend through the fall? Well, it seems that with a component listing on Zauba, an Indian import-export database, may ...

From launch, it has been reduced in price by $20 to $109.99. But if you're looking to leap to Cricket along with your ...
