    Somewhere during the transition between Android Kit Kat and Lollipop, the Android blogs were awash in the discussion about multiple user accounts for mobile devices. If two (or more) people used the same gadget, they could have their own unique user ID’s and passwords. When logging in, their own customized homescreens ...

    Samsung's getting it on for the On7 as we find that the Galaxy On5 is headed to the US, so of course the one that isn't coming to the US gets the update first, right? SamMobile actually has the update OTA from Turkey in its stock right now for you to download if you have a Galaxy On7. Typical Marshmallow improvements ...

    If you've been looking for a reason to head to this side of the Galaxy, — mainly a monetary one — you've got plenty of options on the table. One such option is a site called Dailysteals where, at this point, the most important discount comes down to the Gear VR. It's not as good as free, but coming from the outside, ...

    While Android N… utella could still technically see daylight and perhaps even roll out to new and old Nexus devices before the critically acclaimed Note 4 turns two in the fall, chances are Marshmallow will be the last major software update officially delivered to the first of Samsung’s metal-framed high-end Galaxy ...

    A color and a jack. Sadly, these are some of the most “exciting” changes hardcore iFans can look forward to in the upcoming iPhone 7, 7 Plus and possibly 7 Pro. Well, there’s also the Smart Connector on the larger configuration (s), a dual rear-facing camera, subtler antenna lines, plus an obligatory processor ...

    It was undoubtedly smart of Samsung to commercially release the Galaxy S7 in early March, when the LG G5 and HTC 10 were still several weeks away, while the iPhone 6s had lost almost all its mojo. But now that the iPhone 7 looms large, even without a radical redesign or substantial upgrades in tow, it’s Sammy’s turn ...

    Until the Surface Phone takes center stage (or should we say if the fabled business handheld ever materializes?), the high-end Windows 10 Mobile-based hardware torch is to be passed on from the Lumia 950 XL to the HP Elite x3. Just like Microsoft’s homebrewed Continuum-supporting pioneer and the non-XL 950, the ...

    While arguably the most trustworthy mobile-specialized leaker in the world can only vouch for the name of Samsung’s “next big thing” and a handful of super-premium features, many other insiders and insider wannabes have pretty much painted the Galaxy Note 7 a complete picture these past few months.

    The general wisdom on consumer electronics is that you shouldn't buy the first generation of a product. Bug fixes, refinements, or price drops, it might be safer to wait for a second generation gadget, but honestly, we consumers really don’t seem to start taking a company seriously until we’ve seen them in the ...

    Chinese regulatory agency TENAA has listings up for two variants of the vivo X7, giving us more of an idea of what it has to offer in hardware. Most of the X7's internals were pretty much spoiled from the getgo by vivo while the X7 Plus — or, more correctly, a facsimile of it — got teased in visuals. But beyond the ...

New such devices are on sale from a highly-rated eBay seller for $239.99. The deepest discount yet for the LG-made phone racks up to about $159 off the Google ...
