Samsung Galaxy Discover revealed with vanilla Android

This week the folks at Samsung have revealed that they'll be delivering their newest Galaxy smartphone in the USA with a vanilla (read: untouched) Android experience straight from Google. The device you're seeing here is the Samsung Galaxy Discover and, though it's not 100% stock Android as a real Google Nexus smartphone would be, it's pretty darn close. This device works with a single-core 800Mhz Qualcomm processor, a 3.5-inch HVGA display, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

DROID Turbo, Moto Maxx gets rebranded as Moto Turbo in India

DROID Turbo, Moto Maxx gets rebranded as Moto Turbo in India

As teased by Indian e-tailer Flipkart last month, the DROID Turbo is indeed coming to the sub-continent. Or rather the Moto Maxx. Or rather officially the Moto Turbo. They say that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, and that is especially true here in this case. The DROID Turbo/Moto Maxx/Moto Turbo was one of 2014's surprises and less advertised treasures, but now it has to contend with a lot more worthy rivals, especially given its not so affordable price tag.

Know the odds of your plane crashing with ‘Am I Going Down?’

'Am I Going Down?' is an iOS app that tell you the chances of your plane crashing after you enter your flight details. The premise might sound a little stupid, or even like some kind of joke in poor taste, but it is in fact a serious attempt to ease the very real fears that some people have of flying.

Google Play edition program dead as HTC One M8 departs

Google Play edition program dead as HTC One M8 departs

Two weeks ago, we pondered the death of Google’s ‘Play edition’ program. At the time, Google Play edition devices had slowly been slipping away from the Play Store, with only the HTC One M8 sticking around. Now, Google has stopped selling that device as well. The Play Store no longer lists any Google Play edition devices, leaving the program itself without a single handset. For fans of the Google Play edition line, it’s sad day, and one that likely marks the end to a more vanilla Android on non-Nexus devices from the OEM themselves.

Galaxy S6 specifications may include “less TouchWiz”

Word on the street this week is that Samsung's next hero phone may kick TouchWiz to the curb. However unlikely that may seem, it would go with the trend. Imagine Motorola - owned by Google for a while rather recently - with a Moto X with a far more skinned UI. Imagine the HTC One M8 with Sense 2.0. Samsung may be taking a cue and making with the quicker updates to Android - straight from Google, like Nexus devices are prone to do - in the process.

Micromax’s Cyanogen-powered YU branded YUreka comes to life

Micromax’s Cyanogen-powered YU branded YUreka comes to life

"The Zeus of phones have arrived!" That is how Micromax is trying to paint the arrival of the first smartphone under its new YU brand. With an almost cringe-worthy name of YUreka, the smartphone exclusive to India is bound to attract the attention of many in the mobile world. Aside from being a new hyped product from one of India's biggest OEMs, YUreka is also the first to bear Cyanogen's mark, at least officially and exclusively, in the country, much to OnePlus' chagrin.

Cyanogen strikes up a partnership with India’s Micromax

Cyanogen strikes up a partnership with India’s Micromax

The rumors were true after all and Cyanogen, Inc., the company formed from the community-oriented CyanogenMod's core developers, is indeed targeting the growing mobile market of India. It has struck a deal with manufacturer Mircromax that will bring the Android-based OS to a new device. With promises of dirt cheap handsets, constant updates and freedom from bloatware, this team up pretty much puts Micromax somewhat at odds with its other partner, Google, just after the two launched the Android One program last September.
