Original Samsung Galaxy J7 running Nougat again spotted on WFA’s website

It was June this year, when the first-gen Samsung Galaxy J7 with Android Nougat on board was spotted on the website of WiFi Alliance. Over a couple of months have passed, and the update is yet to roll out. Now, the device has once again appeared on the agency's website, with the listing revealing Android 7.0 this time as well. It's clear that Android 7.0 for the phone is being tested. However, what's not clear is exactly when the update will be pushed out. Getting WiFi certification doesn't necessarily mean roll out is imminent, but it does indicate the update is in pipeline...

Sunday debate: What matters more – performance or efficiency

Following up on last weeks' debate we discuss whether you should favor chipsets with more sheer performance or better power efficiency. Paul: "I feel the need, the need for speed" I conform to the adage of getting the fastest device, combined with the most storage possible, and I don't mind spending more to achieve it. Experience has taught me that this approach ensures that my phone will serve me better and for longer, allowing me to 'cascade' the phone down to other family members (namely my son) when I decide to upgrade. This approach, given the longevity of the device,...



AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) officially dies on December 15

Ladies and gentlemen, brace yourselves. On December 15, AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) will be no more. Oath officially announced the sad news today. Oath, by the way, is the Verizon subsidiary that holds the combined operations of Yahoo and AOL. Anyway, this news is quite shocking. Mostly because it reveals the fact that at the moment AIM is still alive and kicking. That's unexpected to say the least. It's probably a good time for it to be put out of its misery, though. AIM started out as the built-in chat app inside America Online's desktop client. It took off (at least in the US) in...



Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL leaked screen protectors reveal stereo speakers, notch

Since Android P has native support for screen notches, it's long been assumed that Google would adopt the latest trend in the mobile world with its next-gen Pixels. Today a leak purporting to show screen protectors for both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL confirms that, partially. If this is legit (and that's a big "if"), then only the bigger model will sport a notch, as you can see from the images below. The smaller Pixel 3 will have a different design, basically emulating what happened last year with the Pixel 2 and 2 XL, which, from the front, looked nothing alike. Google Pixel 3...
