Xbox One SmartGlass on Android, iOS get some screenshot love

Continuing its embrace of platforms other than its own, Microsoft has just revealed a new feature coming to Android and iOS users. No, it's not Cortana, at least not yet. This one is all about gamers. The already talented Xbox One SmartGlass app on the two rival platforms has just gotten more talented, now able to work with screenshots the same way Windows 10 users are able to, meaning they can now view, share, and even save Xbox One screenshots, right from the convenience of their mobile phone.

BLU Products’ new line brings selfie to budget market

BLU Products’ new line brings selfie to budget market

Selfies. Can't live with them, can't live without them. And when you've got super affordable smartphones to satisfy that selfie crave, why suffer living without? That might be the line of thinking behind BLU's three new smartphones. Although the VIVO Selfie is the leader of the gang when it comes to that criteria, the oddly named C 5+5 and the Energy X Plus do also boast a bit of selfie-centric features. Best of all, like any BLU smarpthone, these devices come unlocked and with tempting budget prices.

All it takes is one MMS to hack your Android phone

All it takes is one MMS to hack your Android phone

Computers are sometimes so fragile that it takes very little to crack them open to remote abuse. That said, in most cases, it usually takes some active action on the part of the user, like opening a file or clicking a link, to start the process. This new Android vulnerability, however, is frightening in the sense that the user doesn't need to do anything at all. Just by receiving a multimedia message, not even opening it, their Android smartphone can become a sitting duck against hackers and miscreants.

Moto X 3rd gen leak: larger screen, same res, microSD slot

Moto X 3rd gen leak: larger screen, same res, microSD slot

It's about time that Motorola's flagship get its fair share of leaks, though it might barely matter with just a few hours left before the real deal hits. That is, unless Motorola's 28th July event is meant only for the new Moto G. In any case, the Moto X that is being revealed in this latest leak may or may not be worth all the excitement. Sure there are marked improvements over last year's model, but depending on what you're looking for in a 2015 flagship, you might be a bit disappointed.

OnePlus 2 hands-on – The Android wild-card

OnePlus 2 hands-on – The Android wild-card

Seldom are the life-lessons so clear when you launch a follow-up product, like the new OnePlus 2 Android smartphone. Born of a desire to cater to the whims of the Android enthusiast, the requests were simple: they wanted power, they wanted affordability, and they wanted it right now. The original OnePlus One succeeded on the first two of those counts but notoriously botched the third. Now, still bearing a near-astonishing SIM-free, unlocked price tag - starting at $329 - but brought up to speed with 2015's finest, the OnePlus 2 is aiming for the hat trick. I caught up with OnePlus to see what's new.

Galaxy Note 5 gets an Exynos 7422 and some hi-res pics

Galaxy Note 5 gets an Exynos 7422 and some hi-res pics

One of the problems with leaks is that there is really no telling which leak is the most accurate one until the fated day finally arrives. Take for example the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, whose leaks are starting to heat up as the August 13 announcement date fast approaches. Many aspects of the S Pen phablet remains in limbo, like the presence, or absence, of an auto eject mechanism for the stylus. But perhaps the most contentious component is the CPU, which is now again said to be an Exynos 7422.

Instagram for Android has a new edit screen

Instagram for Android has a new edit screen

If you use Instagram on Android, you may be seeing a new edit screen that speeds up the sharing process (and if you're not, try updating the app - some users have had luck doing this). Some users are seeing a new so-called quick edit screen that reduces the editing and sharing process to a single screen. The screen allows those who want the more expansive process to use it, but for everyone else, filtering is reduced to swiping right and left.

Nextbit: Android 1.0 crew to “reboot” mobile with new smartphone

The software group known as Nextbit is turning into a smartphone company. With this change, they suggest that in today's mobile industry, "it's time for a reboot." They're planning on making a splash with executives from the original Android 1.0 team as well as a designer from HTC's "heyday." That's now-VP of Product Scott Croyle, a fellow who today suggests he's "really excited to work on a phone that 'feels" different from anything else out there. Whether or not that means it'll be made of odd materials, we'll just have to see.

Google+ cuts ties with YouTube with one important warning

Google+ cuts ties with YouTube with one important warning

Google announces cutting software ties between YouTube and their social network Google+. No longer will YouTube require a Google+ profile for new users looking to upload, comment, or create a channel. No longer will comments posted on a YouTube video also be posted on a user's Google+ profile. Freedom from one or the other is upon us. No longer will Google be pushing Google+ directly in to the comments section of YouTube, and both parties will be the better for it.
