Minecraft: Pocket Edition is quite popular with a large section of mobile users. But what if the app was ported onto a smartwatch? That’s exactly what a YouTube user named Corbin Davenport has done by sideloading the game to his Samsung Gear Live smartwatch. He has apparently used the standard ADB sideloading method to bring the game to the wearable, which can be achieved with some know-how. Hardware is not a constraint for the Gear Live as it runs the 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 SoC and has 512MB of RAM as well which is more than...

Carl Pei, Director of OnePlus Global was part of a Reddit AMA (Ask me Anything) earlier today where he revealed the company’s plans to launch the OnePlus 2.

He reiterated that the current flagship will still be up for grabs going into 2015 with pre-orders expected to begin soon.

The Sony Xperia Z3 and the smaller Z3 Compact is sparsely available in global markets. And now, the two smartphones have officially received support for a custom recovery (ClockworkMod) as well as root access, which should make the handsets more user friendly, providing the liberty to flash and install new custom ROMs. Needless to say, the smartphones need to have unlocked bootloaders for this to work, but that’s not much of a concern as Sony mostly sells devices with unlocked bootloaders anyway. You will have to root your device...

Samsung is launching an Exynos 5433 version of the Galaxy Note 4 handset along with the Snapdragon 805 version this year. The company has long followed the tradition of launching two CPU variants of its flagships for LTE and HSPA markets respectively. And it seems like this year’s Exynos model of the Galaxy flagship might be a real winner as far as the battery life is concerned.

Samsung began sales of the Galaxy Note 4 in South Korea this past Friday in order to tackle the impact that could be caused by the launch of the Apple iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. However, it seems like the company might have rushed it a little bit as some early customers of the phablet are reportedly seeing some gaps between the display and the casing. As you can see in the image above, there’s a visible gap between the two components, so much so that an actual business card has been fit in between the gap, which perfectly...

The folks at ZeroLemon have just launched a new 9,000 mAh external battery pack for the LG G3 smartphone which will bring almost three times the battery capacity of the smartphone. As expected, the case is quite bulky and relatively thick so you will have to sacrifice the slender exterior of the smartphone to get some extra juice, but that’s always a given with such accessories. ZeroLemon has been mindful about the G3’s unique rear facing buttons below the camera and has provided slots for it accordingly. The case is available...
