Motorola Nexus 6 gets new Android 7.1.1 update for those stuck on Android 7.0

Early last year, Google had an issue with an Android update for the Motorola Nexus 6. The device was being updated to Android 7.1.1 but a negative side-effect of the update is that Android Pay was breaking. In order to quickly fix this problem, Google pushed an OTA update that simply reverted users back to Android 7.0. More than a year later, Google has pushed a new OTA to Nexus 6 users that brings the phone up to Android 7.1.1. Even so, the Nexus 6 is already defunct in terms of updates from Google, it will not be updated past this new Android 7.1.1 update and no longer receives security...

Leaked photos show the Galaxy Note8 and its S Pen

As the Samsung Galaxy Note8 launch grows closer, the leaks grow more intense. The latest shows the upcoming flagship from all sides and even the star attraction - the S Pen. You should be pretty familiar with the dual camera on the back from all the renders and you've probably heard that it will have 3x optical zoom. Even the 3,300mAh battery below the rear panel leaked recently. The front features the Infinity Display, a slightly bigger panel than the one on the Galaxy S8+ (6.3" vs. 6.2", same QHD+ resolution and Always on Display tech).

iPhone Sales to decline in India for Q4 2018, to witness initially fall in last 4 several years

It’s not only around the game, however the global decline in the smartphone shipments is also taking place in India as Apple is bracing itself for its first fall in the fourth quarter this year in India. If we calculate on a year-on-year basis, then the Cupertino giant will decline for the first period in the last four several years. As according to a new reasearch report from Counterpoint, Apple is struggling to make pace despite the ongoing festive season in India. As per Counterpoint’s research director Neil Shah, the sales are expected to remain between 700000 to 800000 units in comparison to a million last year at the exact same period. “Sales are set to drop for the first time in 4 years,” Shah said. “If you look at Q3 – it was 900k last year and this (year) is almost 450k.” He further added, “iPhones have gone costlier and the attributes and specs aren’t that compelling. The install base of Android has grown vastly; the fresh customer base (for Apple) is not approaching.” Apple even blamed the disappointing global sales by pointing towards poor sales this year in the emerging markets. Nicely, the blame game has started, and the companies are terming the global slowdown for the decline in performance this year. Tim Cook pulled few wraps off the problems that company is facing by terming them as “speed bumps along a really long journey.” While other analysts are talking about Apple’s lost glory as the Cupertino giant is unable to suggests compelling attributes at a high value. People are leaning towards more costlier Android smartphones which have gone to alternative levels. Overall, the present scenario is not too bad for Apple, and it appears to be the manufacturer needs to reinvent ways to lure consumers. Besides, old iPhone sales remained high means Indian revenue will be flat or will gain a little more than the last year but will close in red (loss).
