Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Review – The best Android of 2016

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Review – The best Android of 2016

You could forgive Samsung for gloating with the Galaxy Note 7; after all, the phablet category the original Note created was dismissed by many as a sure-fire flop. People laughed at its size, its stylus, and its price, and yet time after time, generation after generation, Samsung has demonstrated it knows what its most serious users want. Now, with the Note 7, it's time for the phablet to go mass-market.

LG V20 leaked: features, T-Mobile launch date, price

LG V20 leaked: features, T-Mobile launch date, price

These days, it's almost impossible to keep a new device, be it smartphone, tablet, or even smartwatch, secret for long. While most of the time, manufacturers want to keep things completely under wraps to protect it from the competition, leaks can also work in favor of a product, building up the hype at no extra cost to the company. It could, however, also hurt the product, depending on how well it is received. So this latest set of leaks for the LG V20 could still go both ways, especially considering how ambiguous the market has been towards the LG G5's take on modularity.

iPhone 7 leaked to get fast charging finally

iPhone 7 leaked to get fast charging finally

Apple's attitude towards smartphone batteries is ambiguous at best, even comical at one point. While iPhones are arguably more battery efficient than their Android counterparts, they still leave much to be desired. And when users clamored for a better battery, Apple responded by putting out a highly criticized battery pack. It seems that with the iPhone 7, Apple will be going around the issue again but with a compromise. According to a leak, the iPhone 7 will, at least, get faster charging speeds.

Today we're having a look at the software team responsible for Google Fuchsia, a new operating system from Google.

Nexus 2016 release date photos put function over form

Nexus 2016 release date photos put function over form

Google's 2016 Nexus smartphone set seems to follow the same rules as previous launches - in which Google is aiming for a top quality phone, not so much a phone that looks pretty. Google seems - in the photos we're seeing today - to be making sure this as-yet-unreleased smartphone is able to do two things: feel good to hold and function especially well. Why else would the bottom of the back of the phone be metal while the top 1/3rd of the back of the device is an unsightly reflective glass?

Xiaomi Mi Note 2 to have dual curved edge screen variant

Xiaomi Mi Note 2 to have dual curved edge screen variant

Curved is the new black, at least as far as screens go. With the curved Galaxy Note 7, Samsung is practically sending a message that its future flagship models will have the same non-flat surface. And while Chinese manufacturers are not exactly strangers to that design, Xiaomi, one of the most prominent among them, has so far held back. That is about to change if this Mi Note 2 leak is real, hinting that still to be announced phablet will, like its Samsung namesake, have a screen that curves at the side edges.

OnePlus 3 OTA update breaks things as much as it fixes

OnePlus 3 OTA update breaks things as much as it fixes

Two steps forward, one step back. That is perhaps an accurate way to describe the dance that OnePlus has been doing ever since it launched the OnePlus 3. Although it remains one of the hottest Android flagships this year, the OnePlus 3 has been beset by controversies and technical issues. And while OnePlus has been quick to respond, even patch up, the latter, its haste might be doing it harm as well. Like the latest OxygenOS 3.2.4 update that fixes an auto-reboot problem but also inadvertently breaks Android Pay in the process.
