Welcome to the 45th part in our series of troubleshooting articles dedicated to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. We have been asked a number of times why we still feature this device when it is already pretty old, having been released way back in 2012. The reason for this is that a lot of people are still using this phone and we are still getting a lot of emails from our readers regarding this particular device. In terms of hardware specs it is still capable of competing with the high end mid-range models out in the market today. I’m sure...

The HTC One M8 has been a partial success for the Taiwanese manufacturer. But despite its not so impressive sales figures, people can unanimously agree that the smartphone is quite the looker as far as design is concerned. Now a new report is suggesting that the company will launch a new variant of the smartphone known as the One M8i, but with a midrange hardware specs sheet. It is said that the device is currently known as the M8_QL internally. The smartphone will reportedly be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 octa core chipset...

ZTE has just announced the Blade S6 smartphone sporting a 64-bit CPU and Android 5.0 Lollipop. Hardware like this wouldn’t usually make the headlines, but it’s the price tag of $250 which has gathered plenty of attention here. The smartphone comes with a 5 inch 720p display, a 13-megapixel camera on the back, a 5-megapixel front camera, the octa core Snapdragon 615 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, a 2,400 mAh battery and Android 5.0 Lollipop with what we think is a custom UI layer on top....

Users on Android will now be treated to a superior searching experience with Google when looking for movies or even actors/actresses. The revelation was made by a Google+ post earlier today. There’s even a nice little gif posted by Google which shows how beautifully the UI transitions take place once you make the search. From the search result, you can also have a quick look at the IMDB or Rotten Tomatoes rating for the particular film that you’ve searched for. In cases of actors, you can even get a brief glimpse of all the...

A new leak on Twitter has revealed what is believed to be Huawei’s upcoming “compact” smartphone. This device known as the Mate 7 Compact is reportedly a smaller version of the Mate 7 phablet which was launched not too long ago. Speaking of the size, the Mate 7 Compact is expected to pack a 5.5 inch display on board, so it’s not all that “compact“. We’re treated to a glimpse of the front as well as the back of the smartphone, although there’s no way to confirm their authenticity at this...

Stack Social has an excellent deal on a 20,000 mAh battery pack from ZeroLemon. This juice pack which usually retails for $99.99 can now be yours for half the price at just $49.99. This is pretty big savings on something like a battery pack, which doesn’t usually break the $30 barrier. But considering that this is a 20,000 mAh battery pack, the pricing is well justified. Just for reference, you can charge a device like the Galaxy Note 4 a little over 6 times on a full charge, which certainly speaks a lot about its credentials. The...

A few days ago, we began hearing reports that LG was not too satisfied with Qualcomm’s decision to offer a special version of the Snapdragon 810 chip to Samsung. The report has further added that they would sue Qualcomm if they made such an offer to Samsung. Today, the Korean manufacturer has clarified to the media that it doesn’t intend to take the legal route should Qualcomm offer a modified version of the Snapdragon 810 SoC for the Samsung Galaxy S6. The company said in a statement to a website – “Rumors regarding...

A new leak has possibly given us our very first look of what appears to be the second gen Moto E. The smartphone is very identical to the predecessor in terms of design, but appears to be missing one of the front facing speakers that we saw on the first gen variant. The earpiece is intact, which might also act as the speaker here, something which Motorola does with the Moto G, Moto X and the Nexus 6 as well. There also seems to be a second microphone on the back, possibly for noise cancellation. There’s not much to tell aside from...
