The reason for being unable to meet demand for the device was some sort of issue with the production of the curved edge screen.

Sony Xperia XA Ultra also get its price knocked down

Sony Xperia XA Ultra also get its price knocked down

Fastest price cut ever. Barely two weeks in the US market (not counting the pre-order period), the Xperia XA Ultra is already getting a price reduction in the market. And a considerable some to boot. This seems to be Sony's new pattern, launching a smartphone with an inexplicably high price tag, only to pull down the numbers immediately afterwards. While late adopters will probably not complain, it does paint a rather suspicious picture of Sony's smartphones. Which is somewhat unfortunate given how the Xperia XA Ultra might not be that bad for what it was designed to do: make taking wefies/groufies better.

Some Nexus 5X, 6P chargers reported to be unsafe, not up to spec

USB Type C, or simply USB-C, is the hot new standard for data and power connections on mobile devices, sometimes even laptops like the Apple MacBook. Although not yet adopted universally, it is becoming more widespread in each new product launch. That means that a bunch of new accessories, including chargers, have popped up almost out of nowhere. Sadly, it also means that not everyone gets the spec right, resulting in sometimes very dangerous consequences, as reported by Redditor Nathan-K.

Moto Z camera mod leaked to be made by Hasselblad

The Moto Z, actually the Moto Z Force Droid, was already rated to have one of the best smartphone cameras in town. But who's to say it can't be made better? Moto definitely doesn't think so. As leaked before, there is still one, or two, official Moto Mod missing from the first batch that Lenovo and Moto unveiled in June. That is the "Pro" camera mod, which is now leaked to be called the "True Zoom Camera" mod and is being made by famed camera and lens maker Hasselblad, adding not just physical controls to the already competitive setup.

Apple’s Lightning EarPods revealed in second video

We've quickly reached the point where rumors and leaks about new versions of Apple's EarPods headphones are just as prevalent as those about the upcoming headphone jack-less iPhone 7 itself. Over the past few weeks, there's been several questionable images claiming to show a new pair of wired Earpods that use a Lightning connector instead of a standard 3.5mm plug. Then a video surfaced revealing a fairly authentic looking, functional pair of the headphones. Now a second video has been released, offering the best look at a pair of Lightning Earpods yet.

Luxury smartphone maker Vertu debuts three models starting at $4,200

The Android PC – Revisiting mobile productivity

The Android PC – Revisiting mobile productivity

Last week we took the iPad Pro again for a spin, trying to verify, or refute, Apple's claims about the tablet being the ultimate PC replacement. And just in time, the company just released a video ad just few days ago that tries to make the same point again. But iOS is hardly the only game in town, especially on mobile. And while Google hasn't exactly made a similar claim for Android, others have spoken for it instead. But before go off on another crazy adventure, we first have to look at the few, of course unofficial, attempts at making Android the ultimate PC replacement, as far as OS is concerned at least. Yes, this is the so-called "Android PC".

Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage tipped for China

“Colorful” HTC Desire 530 now also on Verizon

There really is no stopping HTC from pushing its "micro splash design" to the masses. After finally making available the HTC Desire 530, both unlocked and from T-Mobile, it's Verizon's turn to offer the entry level smartphone to its customers. At a very low price, even lower if you activate a new line on Verizon, you can get this handy Android smartphone that will make people take a second look. And probably not always in a good way.

iPhone 7 prototype shown powered on for the first time

iPhone 7 prototype shown powered on for the first time

We've seen no small amount of iPhone 7 dummy models and prototypes, but most, if not all, of them have one missing feature: an actual working phone. In short, most of what we've seen are finely crafted non-functional pieces of tech. This new leak, however, somewhat changes that. Here we get to see not only an iPhone 7 prototype but one that is actually turned on and is running software. Some internal iOS software it seems, which could still cast some doubt on the final product.
