HTC U “Ocean” to ditch headphone jack, gain water resistance

HTC U “Ocean” to ditch headphone jack, gain water resistance

Bad publicity is still publicity, as some would say. In that case, then HTC might very well be enjoying the spotlight, but not exactly in a good way. If the HTC U Ultra is the best that the company can do, then it would be in deep trouble. Fortunately, the HTC U, a.k.a. HTC Ocean, seems to be poised to address some of the complaints about the early 2017 smartphone. Unfortunately, based on this new leak, it won't all be good.

Nokia 6 gets Android 7.1.1, hints at a promising life

The HMD-made Nokia 6 is starting to get Android 7.1.1. Considering that the smartphone was just launched earlier this year, that doesn't seem to be unusual. But considering the messy Android update situation, that's never really a given. But with HMD Global pushing out the latest, at least as far as non-Google phones are concerned, version of Android to the mid-range phone, it is making good on its promise to be the best there is when it comes to Android updates.

Andy Rubin’s Essential phone pops up at GFXBench

Andy Rubin might be the father of Android, but he has quietly left the scene back in 2014. However, that didn't mean he has given up smartphone dreams and has even recently teased what is dubbed the "Essential" smartphone. Now some more information surfaces, this time from a different source. GFXBench has some details on the still mysterious smartphone and, if it does pan out, the Essential smartphone might be as sweet as its bezel-free screen. Save for one puzzling detail, that is.

Galaxy S8 Bixby button remapping blocked by Samsung

Galaxy S8 Bixby button remapping blocked by Samsung

Samsung has blocked users from remapping the Bixby button on the Galaxy S8 handset, upsetting early buyers who weren't planning on using the Korean company's personal assistant. Bixby, for those unfamiliar, is Samsung's new alternative to Siri and Google Assistant, though users shouldn't expect it to be fully functional upon the handset's launch. Industrious early users figured out how to remap this physical button, and Samsung apparently didn't like that.

That Galaxy S8 Plus with 2x camera may release with Note 8

A Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus 2x camera prototype revealed in a recent leak has been tipped to release later this year. Instead of appearing as the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, this device is said to be moving forward as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise given the relative size, shape, and features of past Galaxy S and Note releases. Where one goes, the other inevitably follows - with a few bonus features.

Top 4 inexpensive data-only smartphone plans in the U.S. (2017)

Top 4 inexpensive data-only smartphone plans in the U.S. (2017)

While many people still use their phone plan's voice minutes and texts, an increasing number of people are leaving behind these two seemingly archaic communication options in favor of Internet-based communications. Most of the major messaging apps support free voice and video calls between users, for example, and those times you have to call someone you're not connected to via a messaging app can be done with something like Skype. It seems few people realize that data-only phone plans are an option, though, so we've performed the hard work and picked out the top four budget-friendly options.

LG Display OLED order tipped for Apple

The iPhone 8 (the 2018 version of the potential device) may have an OLED display provided by LG Display. A tip comes from Business Korea speaking with whom they suggest is "a senior official at LG Display." That official apparently said that LG Display "received a request to take part in a bid for receiving an order for small and medium-sized OLEDs from Apple. At the end of June, we will make a decision based on OLED production technology, capacity and the accompanying investment volume in an extraordinary board meeting."

HTC U Ultra gets a one-time Spring price cut

HTC U Ultra gets a one-time Spring price cut

The HTC U Ultra is perhaps the company's most controversial smartphone yet. The hardest pill to swallow about it, especially given criticisms, is its price tag. Though $750 is actually right up there with Samsung's and Apple's flagships, some argue that a lower figure would have helped sweeten the U Ultra to the market. HTC is addressing that complaint, albeit very temporarily. To welcome the Spring season, it is putting the HTC U Ultra on a time-limited sale that chops a good $150 off its regular retail price.

Galaxy S8, iPhone 7 Plus, Google Pixel, OnePlus 3T speeds tested

With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8, you pretty much have the late 2016 to early 2017 smartphone flagships. Which means it's probably time to do a roundup of these smartphone's performance. That is what YouTube channel EverythingApplePro just did by pitting most, though not all, of them against each other in a massive speed test showdown. Who came out first or even second isn't probably going to surprise you. But who came out the last will.
