You can buy a BlackBerry KEYone in the US if you’re on this carrier

You can buy a BlackBerry KEYone in the US if you’re on this carrier

Although BlackBerry’s latest, and so far last, QWERTY phone has been making rounds on the Internet, it hasn’t actually made official rounds in the US. That all changes this Friday as the BlackBerry KEYone finally does land in the US. But if you’ve been pining to get your hands on this one through a carrier, better luck next time. Unless you’re already on Sprint, because that’s the only place you’ll be able to get it in the US for now.

PSA: US Border Patrol can’t search your phone’s cloud data

PSA: US Border Patrol can’t search your phone’s cloud data

The issue of electronic device searches at the border is a hot one, and though US Border Patrol can (and at times will) search your phone, it isn't allowed to search your cloud data accessible through the handset. The Customs and Border Patrol recently acknowledged that it does not have the authority to search cloud-only data found on phones, and that it doesn't search this data as a result. This includes your social media data.

15 classic retro games you can play on Android right now

15 classic retro games you can play on Android right now

There's no shortage of great modern games, but sometimes you need something to stoke the fires of nostalgia. Unfortunately, many old games have not been recreated for smartphones, the reasons for which are vast and, at times, baffling. You can download an emulator and ROMs, of course, but quality is spotty. While some games aren't (legally) available on your phone, others are, and we've compiled them into this handy list.

WhatsApp private info “leak” video goes viral

This morning a potentially hazardous feature in WhatsApp was the subject of a Tweet and video, both of which went viral. What we're going to do right now is discuss whether the information these bit of media present is an actual hazard for the end user - you. If you're worried about your data being shared with 3rd-party users, there's little to worry about - sort of.

Be aware which Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra you buy if you need 4G LTE

Be aware which Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra you buy if you need 4G LTE

Not all smartphones are created equal. That pretty much is a fact of the mobile life. Sometimes, even those with the same name can differ in features, depending on the region. Just like the LG G6 with its Quad DAC enabled Korean model and wireless charging US model. It seems that Sony has followed suit but in a potentially more confusing way. Available in the US via Amazon or Best Buy, the Xperia XA1 Ultra supports 4G LTE networks in general, but only one of those will work with US bands.

iPhone 8 might also have a 3D sensor on its back

iPhone 8 might also have a 3D sensor on its back

It seems that 3D will be making a big splash on the iPhone 8 in more ways than one. It has already been speculated, by no less than famed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo himself, that the 10th anniversary iPhone would have a 3D sensor on the front for advanced facial recognition. Now there is word coming from certain sources that the back camera will also have a 3D laser sensor that will be used not just for autofocus but also for augmented reality. As if Apple didn’t have too much on its plate already.

Nextbit will close its support doors end of the month

Nextbit will close its support doors end of the month

The writing has been on the wall for months now so this doesn’t come as a surprise. After all, Nextbit is no longer the captain of its own ship, not after gaming accessory maker Razer bought it in January. Since then, Nextbit, or Razer, has slowly been closing doors. By the end of the month, the second to the last door will also be closed, with Nextbit ending most of its support channels once and for all.

Meizu PRO 7 second screen might actually be a mirror only

Meizu PRO 7 second screen might actually be a mirror only

Well, now it makes more sense now. Not completely but it’s just a wee bit less ridiculous than before. When rumors started to swirl around the Meizu PRO 7’s second screen, it was rather confusing. That screen wasn’t some grayscale, power saving screen on the back but a full color one. Based on a new set of photos leaking on the Internet, it might not even be a second screen as we know it so far. Instead, it will simply be a mirror screen.

LG invite teases V30 unveiling at IFA next month

LG invite teases V30 unveiling at IFA next month

LG is gearing up to announce a new phone next month at IFA in Berlin, and all signs point toward that phone being the anticipated V30 handset. The invite is vague, minimalist but clever enough, presenting the date and time -- August 31 at 0900, to be precise -- on the home screen of a phone...or, at least, the silhouette of a phone.

Galaxy Note 8 could be on track for another early reveal

The fact that we're now into the middle of July means that the fall phone rush is coming up fast. We can expect new phones from a lot of major manufacturers, but one to watch will definitely be the Galaxy Note 8. We're getting an idea of when Samsung might debut the Galaxy Note 8, and it sounds like the company is gearing up for another early debut.

iPhone 8’s software isn’t ready yet either, dread ensues at Apple

iPhone 8’s software isn’t ready yet either, dread ensues at Apple

Although Touch ID is the favorite whipping boy for whatever delays or flaws the iPhone 8 might, it is apparently far from being the only source of worry for Cupertino. This time, however, it isn’t the new hardware that’s the problem but the software using those hardware. If theses issues aren’t resolved in time, Apple might be forced to either delay the iPhone 8 launch or ship it on time with certain features disabled. Neither are ideal scenarios for this 10th anniversary smartphone.

Windows Phone 8.1 will no longer get any updates starting today

Windows Phone 8.1 will no longer get any updates starting today

As of today, Windows Phone 8.1 is deader than dead. You’ll probably be more surprised to learn that it wasn’t already, but they do say that fact is stranger than fiction. Officially speaking, however, Windows Phone 8.1 only ends its mainstream support 11th July this year. This means that, unless Microsoft relents and shows a bit of mercy, devices running on this version of Microsoft’s operating system will no longer receive updates, even critical security ones.
