Galaxy S8 Oreo update still MIA but users should want it soon

Samsung isn’t the fastest when it comes to pushing out Android updates and even more so major ones like Android 8.0 Oreo. So when the OEM got the ball rolling with the Oreo Beta program for the Galaxy S8, there was reason for excitement among users. Three beta releases later, however, the light at the end of the tunnel is still nowhere to be seen and no one knows when the final version will be released.

New LG Gram laptop to push the envelope in portability

Last week, the Windows world was rocked by the promise of Windows 10 (and 10 S) 2-in-1s running on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset. That promise, however, is still to be fulfilled and the Windows world will still have to settle for the bulkier computing devices of today. Not really, at least if you ask LG. The Korean manufacturer has just announced the upcoming new version of one of the lightest laptops in the world, the LG Gram, now with more power but still not much more weight.

OPPO A83’s 18:9 screen has plenty of bezels to go around

Most of the time, when you hear “18:9 screen” these days, you usually associate it with bezel-less designs like those on the LG V30, the Galaxy S8, and the iPhone X.

Galaxy S9 won’t support Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ in the US

The Galaxy S9 seems to be shaping up to be somewhat of a disappointment. Just recently, a leak seemed to confirm that it might not have dual cameras, which is being reserved for its Galaxy S9+ sibling.

But as it turns out, that might actually open a bigger can of worms as well.

Google Maps Go is now a go for Android Go

Google has just recently launched Android Go, the “half-version” of Android meant for phones with even more constrained hardware. But a “lite” Android is just half the equation and you’ll need lite apps to go with it. That was true for Search Go (formerly Search Lite) and Files Go, but there are still a lot of Google apps that need to go on a diet. The newest to join that group is Maps Go, now available on Play Store but not available for anyone. That is, unless you know its secret.
