The Android version remains unchanged at 4.1.2, so there’s not much to expect as far as the...

The Skype app for Android is now receiving an update which brings some useful features along with it. The app has long been criticized for not being able to show notifications immediately as the messages are sent, but Skype claims that this particular issue has been fixed.

The smartphone still comes with an year’s subscription of Amazon Prime (worth $99), which is something to consider while getting the device. Coming...
