We did receive a lot of emails from our readers who own Galaxy S5s and many were asking if their device will ever get the lollipop update. Samsung hasn’t finished rolling out updates in the U.S., so as of now, you can easily download Android 5 on your Samsung Galaxy S5 device. But for Straight Talk branded model, there seems to be no word if the update would ever gonna come. I addressed 10 problems in this post and answered a few questions our readers sent us including the questions on the lollipop update. Read on to know more about...

Google Search can perform a broad range of functions, ranging from naming presidents to doing complex math. The search app also received an update recently which offered a refined experience for people discovering new movies. Today, the app has received a new cocktail recipe feature which will offer you interesting recipes for cocktails when asked. It’s not as elaborate as the movies search results feature, but it will still do the job when asked. To shoot up a query, all you have to do is ask something like “how to make...

We all know that the Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to arrive early April in the U.S. and 19 other countries globally. However, the company was tight lipped about the expected pricing of the device. Thankfully, T-Mobile has now given away details on that, albeit unintentionally. The revelation was made by a contest listing setup by the carrier which mentions the ARV or the average retail value of the smartphone to be $699, which is something we all wanted to know for a while now. It is to be seen if other carriers in the U.S. carry a...

We’ve seen Google offer several popular albums for free through the Play Store. Starting today, yet another popular album can be yours at no cost at all. Coldplay’s Grammy nominated Ghost Stories album is up for grabs, granted you have a Google account hooked up with Play Music. In order to setup a Play Music account, you will need to add a credit or debit card, so make sure you have that ready if you’re a new user. The Ghost Stories album has a total of nine tracks, most of them being pretty decent depending on your...

America’s third (or fourth) major carrier, Sprint, has now started the rollout of Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 phablet. The update has all the bells and whistles associated with Android 5.0, but in Samsung’s own form. The software version is N910PVPU1BOB7 here, so make a note of that if you’re expecting an update. The carrier is also issuing WiFi calling related updates, so there are some features from the carrier’s end as well. With the addition of WiFi calling, users will be able to make...

HTC already unveiled the One M9 smartphone earlier this week, but it seems like the company is not done with its quota of flagships at the moment as the company is believed to be unveiling the HTC A55 a.k.a the One E9 handset later this month. According to Upleaks, this smartphone will have a 5.5 inch Quad HD display, hence making it the first HTC smartphone to sport such a display panel. The smartphone is also expected to be packing the MediaTek MT6795 64-bit octa core SoC with a clock speed of 2.0 GHz, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal...

For the first time in many years, mobile consumers seem to overwhelmingly approve of a next-gen Samsung flagship. The Galaxy S6 and particularly the S6 Edge are (almost) all they could have been, with metal frames (finally!), robust Gorilla Glass back covers, uber-crisp displays, powerful yet frugal processors, highly competent OIS cameras and smoother than ever software. Still, haters gonna hate. Fueling the muffled criticism, Sammy removed external storage support, shrunk down battery capacity and, above all, “forgot” water protection....
