Microsoft Andromeda project might not be completely dead yet

Microsoft Andromeda project might not be completely dead yet

While the Surface Go makes quite a tempting proposition, some have unsurprisingly remarked that Microsoft is only trying to distract people from the real issue at hand. That issue is that Microsoft has reportedly postponed “indefinitely” its foldable Surface Phone and the Andromeda software that would run on it. Of course, they never really formally acknowledged the existence of either but neither did they say it’s completely done for. The latter sliver of hope may be what fans of the project have seen in a demo video that has nothing to do with Andromeda but also hints that it might still exist.

Galaxy Note 9 “official” image: Shocker or Non-shocker!

The biggest non-shock of the day comes from a leaked "official" render of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. This device appears today with a series of sensors and cameras up front with a power button, a Bixby button, and a volume rocker around the edges. This smartphone looks a whole lot like what we've seen in earlier leaks, complete with location and size of elements of all sorts.

Sunny in Philadelphia mobile game revealed with Charlie-esque note

The game "Always Sunny: The Gang Goes Mobile" is real, and it's happening imminently. This game isn't going to be like the mobile game the gang plays in the episode "Charlie Rules the World", but it'll still be radical. According to the first text release about this game, it'll have users "team up with The Gang: Mac, Dennis, Charlie, Dee and Frank, in their favorite gags, storylines, and iconic moments from the series, indulging in new and ridiculous money-making schemes to tap and unlock their way to more schemes and collect fan-favorite characters."

You don’t want a new smartphone

You don’t want a new smartphone

Here in the summer of 2018 there's a lull in technological advancements in smartphones. You don't need a new smartphone - you can get a device released last year, or even the year before that, that has most or all of the same essential features released in phones coming this year. There's a bit of a trick going on that only those that've been buying smartphones since the start of this phenomena understand already.

LG G7 ThinQ durability test: unremarkable in the best way

LG G7 ThinQ durability test: unremarkable in the best way

The LG G7 ThinQ is easily one of the better smartphones this year. Beautiful, well-built, and sensible, it is, unfortunately, also one of the least remarkable ones this year. But while that might be a negative, being “normal” in some cases can also be a good thing. Like in a JerryRigEverything durability test where the LG G7 ThinQ reveals no fancy gimmicks or chinks in its armor. It’s just one solid and durable smartphone.

iOS 11.4.1 brings USB Restricted Mode but it has a bug

iOS 11.4.1 brings USB Restricted Mode but it has a bug

Some features just can’t seem to wait for a grand release. That seems to be the case for Apple’s latest controversial security feature which was initially expected for iOS 12 in a few months. It seems, however, that pressing matters may have forced Apple to almost silently roll out its USB Restricted Mode feature in the new iOS 11.4.1 update. But while it’s designed to keep out hackers, it currently has a bug that would render that feature almost moot.

Vivo NEX launches internationally, excludes US, EU

Vivo NEX launches internationally, excludes US, EU

There are two very interesting smartphones this year, at least as far as novelty goes. Those would be the Vivo NEX and the OPPO Find X, both with their own take on how to solve the design problem of front cameras in a bezel-less, notch-less world. Both launched initially in China but only one has revealed its intent to sell elsewhere. But while the Vivo NEX is indeed launching internationally, it sadly continues to snub the US and Western Europe.

New Galaxy Note 9 renders clear up some pre-release questions

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was revealed earlier this year by Samsung as - indeed - existing, and planned on revealing it as such at the start of August. In the weeks and months since leaks of the Galaxy Note 9 began, we've gotten a fairly clear picture of what this device is set to look like. Over the past couple of days we've gotten images and even a rendering video that show the device in detail - closer than we've ever gotten before. Let's answer a few questions we've had quite recently on this device.

Cheap iPhone X “confirmed” in new images

Cheap iPhone X “confirmed” in new images

The budget-friendly iPhone X model rumored earlier this year was seemingly "confirmed" by a set of images from the folks at Ghostek. While generally we're not all about using case-maker images as confirmation alone, the folks at Ghostek seem to have had access to early images of the last couple Samsung Galaxy smartphones. Today we're looking at what appears to be the least expensive of the pack of three devices coming to Apple's iPhone X collection later this year.

Galaxy S10 will have different fingerprint scanners

Galaxy S10 will have different fingerprint scanners

Next year will be the Galaxy S line’s nth anniversary and it seems that Samsung is going to throw everything into it. Whether it makes complete sense or not. At least the Korean OEM will give buyers their choice of crazy with not one, not even two, but three models to choose from. And the three won’t just differ in their number of cameras or price either. According to the latest media report, they will also differ in the type of fingerprint scanner experience you will get.
