Samsung Galaxy Note 4 gets a battery life-boosting update

The Galaxy Note 4 is a 4-year-old phone so it's nice to see Samsung still taking care of it. The update is minor, though, so don't expect a new OS version at this point. The OTA update has been spotted in the Netherlands and it's 224MB big. The changelog points to improved security, but users say it still shows February 2018 security patch. Our best guess is that Samsung just applied a critical security fix without implementing the latest one from July. In addition, the update brings better power management, performance and stability although, no specifics are givene. Since it's...



Pixel 2 XL screen produces a bright flash when locking or unlocking the phone

The Google Pixel 2 XL is plagued with a thousand issues, quite a few of which concern the screen. Now a new issue has come to light - many users report that the screen flashes when locking or unlocking the phone. The issue seems to be related to the ambient display.

White Google Pixel 2 sees shipping delays

Another year, another Google phone shipping fiasco. The original Pixel and Pixel XL were almost impossible to find in stock for months after their launch, and while the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL don't seem to be having issues on the same order of magnitude (at least not with regard to shipping), there still are some hiccups here and there. Case in point - the Clearly White Pixel 2. This color version of the smaller handset is going to see delays in shipping that will be over a month in some cases. For certain people who pre-ordered this model and got an initial shipping estimate of...



Samsung re-launches the Galaxy Note7 worldwide

Samsung officially announced the relaunch of the Galaxy Note7 across the globe. The new batch of phablets is ready and has been shipped to all partners, retailers, and carriers. It should be free of defective batteries, and, hopefully, of stuck S-Pen styluses. The Galaxy Note7 has already been relaunched in South Korea and Samsung is pushing it aggressively on the market via special experience stores. The rest of the supported markets are now getting it, too, and a proper advertisement campaign is to be expected (more…)
