Huawei Honor 9 Lite – the truth is out there, and it will come out today

Honor 9 Lite is one of the rare ”mystery phones” cases that we get now and then – a phone that we know almost nothing about right until its release. Fortunately, today Huawei is supposed to finally unwrap this mystery with an official reveal, and yesterday the company has graced us with pictures of the device. A bit strange decision, seeing how Honor 9 Lite’s design is nothing special. There is a 18:9 display, dual main camera, fingerprint scanner and a glass rear. Nihil novi. As for specifications, well, all I can offer you are the rumours:– 5.65′ ...

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus renders

There is no shortage of leaks on Galaxy S9/S9+ on the Internet. A group of people – I do not know who exacly, sorry – have gathered these leaks and based upon them an impressive render of both phones. You can see it by looking above this text. Among the changes in regards to the last Galaxy S model, one can notice a thinner bezel (when was the last time that any phone’s render depicted a large bezel…), under-camera fingerprint scanner and five colour variants available.We already know most of the Galaxy S9’s specifications:– Super AMOLED screen, ...

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) series may launch in three colour variants

It has been a while since I last wrote about anything that Roland Quandt leaked. It is about time I do! According to Quandt, phones from the Galaxy A8 (2018) series will be available in three colour variants at day 0. These colours will be Black, Gold, and Orchid Gray. Of course this is an unofficial bit of info, but then again, it is Roland Quandt we are talking about. He is usually correct. Besides, Black and Gold are colours that were available in the A series ever since the Galaxy A3 (2017), while Orchid Gray was already used for Galaxy Note 8 as well as S8 and S8+. ...

Only 50.000 units of Essential Phone have been sold so far

Blow the sad trombone and play the world’s smallest violin, as Essential Phone is not selling well at all. According to EP’s Essential Camera application’s download figures from Play Store, roughly 50 thousand units of the Andy Rubin’s smartphone have been sold during the phone’s four months long release. Too bad, so sad. There are a few reasons to believe that the actual sales are lower, though; some of these devices could have been resold and signed to new account/s, Essential’s developers have probably used multiple accounts to test their apps out on a ...

Not even 1% of Android devices run on Oreo

We all know that Android is fragmented, okay? Some devices never receive updates to their operating systems, some get them late, newer OS sometimes do not work on older devices or in certain regions, one provider allows for the specific operating system while the other does not, yadda yadda. Old story. The reason I am writing this is because, as old as this story is, it is now getting a bit ridiculous. According to data lately released by Google, only 0.5% (half-a-percent) of Android devices run on Android’s latest operating system, Android 8.0 Oreo. Right now Google Pixel phones all ...

Study claims that Galaxy phone users on Twitter are happier than iPhone users

Research has been conducted by the firm LikeFolio. The firm compared the number of positives said about Galaxy smartphones to the number of those said about iPhone smartphones, and the positive sentiment towards Samsung’s products seem to be prevalent. It dropped, naturally, after the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, but then it quickly bounced back up, currently nearly reaching the pre-Note 7 levels. The ”happiness” level of iPhone users is overall lower than that of Galaxy users, but it has stayed on more or less the same level over the years. iPhone X may change this when it ...

Huawei Mate 10 Pro (or just Mate 10) to be released in the US on AT&T

Korean media report that very soon Huawei will be announcing Mate 10 Pro (or just Mate 10, the media are not sure) on AT&T, meaning that the device will become available in the United States of A. Many people believe that this will take place at the CES 2018 expo in early 2018.Mate 10/Pro making its way into the US market would be a huge first foothold that this – or any other – Chinese company gains there. Very profitable, too, since a huge percentage of the world’s smartphone trade takes place there. Now I only wonder how much will the Mate 10/Pro cost in the US. It ...
