Samsung releasing Note 7 update in Korea to disable charging

Samsung releasing Note 7 update in Korea to disable charging

Samsung has been mostly successful in getting those with a defective Galaxy Note 7 to turn their phones in, but as always, there are a certain amount of stragglers who are still using theirs. Samsung has tried a few things to get these consumers to hand in their phones, from offering trade-in credits to limiting the amount the phone's battery can charge through a software update. With a few people out there still using a potentially dangerous phone, it seems that Samsung now has to get a little more serious.

Android O on Nexus 5X, 6P gets a preliminary root

Android O on Nexus 5X, 6P gets a preliminary root

New Android releases are almost always welcomed by Android users, but power users, especially those who routinely root their devices, have mixed feelings. While it brings new features to play with, a new Android version usually also patches up exploits that are used to gain root access. Defying expectation, however, Chainfire, developer extraordinaire known for his SuperSU utility, has announced a preliminary root for Android O on the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P, just days after the first Android O developer preview was announced.

Here’s when the Galaxy S8 will go on pre-order in Europe

In about a week's time, Samsung will finally unveil the Galaxy S8. Much of what it will have to offer is pretty much known, leaving little to the imagination. The only real remaining question, other than actual performance, is when it will actually go on sale. While there are still differing dates for that in the US, Europe, or at least the Netherlands might get theirs early. If leak of the pre-order date is right on the mark.

OPPO F3 Plus tries to be twice the selfie expert

OPPO F3 Plus tries to be twice the selfie expert

OPPO has apparently found its calling in the sometimes hated, sometimes loved market of selfies. Each major smartphone it releases is touted as a "selfie expert" and, to some extent, that does end up being true. The OPPO F3 Plus is no different, at least not in trying to claim the title. It is, however, different in that it has twice as much selfie expertise. And by that, we mean that it does have two front-facing cameras. But not all cameras are created equal, and neither are the OPPO F3 Plus'.

Galaxy S8 to have no questions asked 3-month refund policy

Galaxy S8 to have no questions asked 3-month refund policy

A show of confidence or a sign of desperation? For now, it seems to be both. In order to counteract the severe impact that the Galaxy Note 7 had on its image, Samsung is believed to be pulling all the stops in marketing the Galaxy S8. Apparently, that includes offering a 3-month refund policy, where dissatisfied owners can return the (undamaged) device, no questions asked. The unorthodox policy is supposedly a way for Samsung to give its Bixby assistant time to mature.

OnePlus 3, 3T gets new OxygenOS MP Early Access program

More and more Android users expect fast and timely updates for their phones, especially when it comes to the monthly security fixes. Not all smartphone makers, however, have the capacity to always have an army of testers available all year round. Especially smaller companies like OnePlus. Almost as a tit for tat arrangement, OEMs have started enlisting the help of eager users in testing future releases. As if two testing programs weren't enough, OnePlus is adding one more, just to make sure everything is well-polished before release.

Galaxy S8 DeX Station dock to have active cooling

Much of the features of the upcoming Galaxy S8 have already been leaked to death. Some, like the Bixby AI-powered assistant, has even been confirmed by Samsung itself. One feature, however, has mostly remained on the sidelines, the Continuum-like DeX desktop. While details are still scarce, the accessory that will make DeX possible has recently come to light. The DeX Station dock is unlike any smartphone dock you've seen. Because in addition to transforming the Galaxy S8 on a desktop, it also has a fan to keep the smartphone cool.
