Galaxy S8 battery: What you should (and shouldn’t) worry about

Galaxy S8 battery: What you should (and shouldn’t) worry about

If you, upon first hearing that the Galaxy S8 would feature a 3,000mAh battery, were concerned that it wouldn't be adequate enough, you're not alone. Many expressed concerns that Samsung banked too conservatively on its smaller flagship's battery capacity, and though the S8+ has a larger 3500mAh model, it doesn't matter much in light of the phone's larger overall size. Now that the phone is out and has been subjected to everyday life, are the concerns founded? Yes and no.

Full Windows 10 on phones is not going to happen, insists Microsoft

Full Windows 10 on phones is not going to happen, insists Microsoft

If you had any fantasies of running a "regular" Windows 10 stack on your phone, Microsoft just dashed them. Not that it was a completely viable dream anyway, even with Windows 10 on ARM almost in full swing. Microsoft's own Joe Belfiore confirms that phones, if there will ever be new ones, will be running Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 Mobile only. Which also implies that Windows 10 Mobile isn't going anywhere, at least for now.

Honor 9 Premium launches in Europe with flagship specs

Honor 9 Premium launches in Europe with flagship specs

Pretty soon, Huawei sub-brand Honor would have shed off its image as a maker of less than premium handsets. It might even start to rival Huawei itself. The Honor 9, which it just launched just launched last month, was already on the periphery. With the Honor 9 Premium, it might just have crossed the threshold. While one spec still has a foot in mid-range territory, this so far European exclusive still pretty much offers high-end specs for less than most flagships this year.

Samsung Bixby US launch has finally started for real

Now all that remains is to see whether it will understand potentially hundreds of thousands of users better than the initial set of frustrated testers.

LG V30 Geekbench scores will make you want to get it

While still a contentious topic, benchmarks are still popular and widely used, more as a common point of reference and a launchpad for discussion. While they may or may not reflect real world use, they can come pretty close to giving users an idea of what they're in for. And those waiting for LG's "true" 2017 flagship might be in for a treat. The LG V30 has just popped up at Geekbench, just a month shy of its official unveiling, and it has some pretty sweet numbers to boast of.

Foldable Surface Phone could just be a cruel tease

Foldable Surface Phone could just be a cruel tease

This is a tease in the truest sense of the word. Microsoft Azure's social accounts have put up what would have been a boring Node.js training ad if not for what it used to include in the image: a never before seen device that immediately calls to mind a foldable tablet or smartphone. Give how the post remains online, it's possible Microsoft didn't "accidentally" leak that image. It's more possible that Microsoft intentionally created a Photoshopped image for fun, which might also be a cruel joke for the Windows Phone loyal.
