HTC Nexus “Marlin” render unsurprisingly looks like an HTC 10

We aren't hearing much about Google's upcoming Nexus smartphone, or smartphones, which isn't that unusual given the flood of information coming in for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the iPhone 7. However, not everyone is a Sammy or Apple fan and some are more interested in the vanilla goodness of a Nexus. For those of you in that crowd, TechDroider is giving you some respite by showing off a render that it made based off all the leaks available so far. In short, this is as close as we'll get until Google officially proves otherwise.

Summer is here, at least for those in the northern half of the globe. The season brings images of beaches, sun, and, red.

Sony Xperia XA Ultra now also available in the US

Sony Xperia XA Ultra now also available in the US

Sony continues its push to have its latest smartphones in the US, despite all odds and in the face of increasingly fierce competition in the smartphone market. After making the Xperia X Performance flagship and the Xperia X available to buyers, it is now unleashing the Xperia XA Ultra and its ultra large physique to consumers. Like the smaller Xperia XA, it features a near borderless, at least at the sides, screen. Its real selling point, however, is the 16 megapixel camera that graces its face.

ZTE Axon 7 now available for purchase

ZTE Axon 7 now available for purchase

Last year, ZTE made an unexpected and admittedly impressive attempt to grab a piece of the premium smartphone pie in the US market, launching the Axon Pro there first before anywhere else. Although the Axon line already has a few models to its name, it is only now that ZTE has chosen to bring one of those to the US again. At least on paper, the ZTE Axon 7 definitely stands up to the reputation of its predecessor and is now available for consumers to try out for themselves.

Pokemon Radar downloads: the app everyone is cheating with

Pokemon Radar downloads: the app everyone is cheating with

Cheating at Pokemon GO isn't especially difficult, as a rabble of Android and iOS developers will tell you this week. Today the quickest rising app on either app store is an app called "Poke Radar" which, as you'll soon find out, isn't what it suggests it is. It works just how it says it's supposed to, but if you're looking for a Pokemon Radar that works, you'll need to look elsewhere. Meanwhile, there's an app called "Poke Scanner" that'll do just what you want it to.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 detail leak you’ve prayed for before release day

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 detail leak you’ve prayed for before release day

The Galaxy Note 7 iteration you'd been hoping you'd see is here - or at least appears very much to be here. This is what we can only assume is the flat version of the Galaxy Note 7, the standard version. The version of the device that makes more sense for the general public than the Edge version. Both the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the Galaxy Note 7 Edge will very likely be popping up on the 2nd of August in full color - and with edge-like sides either on the front, the back, or both.

This iPhone 7 feature detail releases from Galaxy Note bonds

This iPhone 7 feature detail releases from Galaxy Note bonds

A new sort of home button for the iPhone 7 could be just the feature boost the company needs to bridge the gap between 2016 and the 10-year anniversary of the device. We've thus far been told by tipsters that very little would change between the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 7 - a slightly better camera, perhaps another color metal made available, a different arrangement of antenna lines. What's the big deal, users might wonder, isn't this supposed to be a "tic" year in Apple's trend of "tic tock tic tock?" Perhaps it still is, but next year could be a tic too.

Pokemon GO server status is down, but also up

Pokemon GO server status is down, but also up

How can Pokemon GO be down, but also up at the same time? Pokemon GO is a multi-tiered system, one in which more than one level of log-on and play is included. Today users have found several problems occurring at different times. Earlier today is was a bit of down time on the main server - high latency and inability to see Pokemon and/or Gyms and PokeStops. That down time seems to be fading, while a different down situation seems to be rising up.

iPhone 7 clones prefigure what’s coming next

Change is inevitable, as they always say, and change isn't always something that everyone wants. What are we talking about? Why, the changes in the iPhone 7, of course! In just a month or so, Apple is expected to finally put all rumors to rest and it is expected to be just as controversial as the iPhone 6 when it first came out. Two videos of what are unambiguously "iPhone 7 clones" give us a foretaste of what's to come. They also gauge and prepare our reactions for when the real deal lands.

ZTE Axon 7 Mini gets a very early leak

ZTE Axon 7 Mini gets a very early leak

It wasn't too long ago, two weeks in fact, that ZTE unveiled the Axon 7, which brought a tempting offer to US consumers. It flaunted specs nearly equal specs with those of, say, the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge but at nearly half the price. It hasn't exactly settled in yet but it seems ZTE is already preparing a "spinoff". Details of a certain Axon 7 Mini have begun leaking out, revealing a smartphone that, while not exactly small, is at least really smaller than its flagship counterpart but still has enough muscle to be a viable option for those with not much budget to spare.
