A new report from the WSJ states that Qualcomm is readying an updated version of the Snapdragon 810 chipset for the Samsung Galaxy S6. It is believed that Qualcomm is taking the overheating concerns seriously and will make the changes to its SoC accordingly. However, failing to launch the chip by March, Samsung could go ahead with the Exynos 6 chip as initially planned. LG, which is using the Snapdragon 810 chip on the G Flex 2 has claimed that the Snapdragon 810 has no overheating issues on board. Samsung and Qualcomm have refused...

According to a reliable source of HTC leaks on Twitter, the upcoming One M9 smartphone will be available in an exclusive developer edition variant, but only for the American markets. We’re not sure how different this will be from the previous iterations since developer edition HTC One flagships have only been available in the U.S. The upside of getting a developer edition HTC smartphone is that it comes with an unlocked bootloader, thus allowing customers to flash custom ROMs at will. It is also offered SIM free, so customers...

There are multiple perks for having a Prime subscription which extends beyond priority 2-day shipping for items on Amazon....

It’s been a lackluster past few years for stumbling mobile giant HTC at the global box-office, and if the Taiwanese are ever to spark up a comeback, the next three to six months may well be critical. For the company’s stability on the whole and future prosperity. Clearly, the One M9 could take the role of saving grace, but the M8 sequel has to hit the nail on the head in everything from release timing to build quality to sheer power. Where its predecessor excelled, the Hima has to shine brighter, and where it failed to impress, this...

The Android 5.0 update schedule for the Moto G has been somewhat erratic. Customers in some regions have already received the update while others are yet to get it. Motorola is trying to change that today, at least to some extent, by rolling out the Android 5.0 update for the 1st gen Moto G in India and the 2nd gen Moto G in India and the U.S. A large number of customers are already seeing the update apparently, so it shouldn’t be long before you have it on your device. It is interesting to note that Motorola is believed to have...

The HTC One M9 is expected to break cover in March. A new report has now revealed that the company will also be launching its very first wearable during the same event. This could be a fitness tracker rather than a full blown wearable as multiple reports have told us in the past. HTC has been working with fitness brand Under Armour for the launch of a similar accessory, so this news doesn’t come as a surprise to us. But we’ll be very keen to see what HTC would have done with the device in terms of design and features. Since...

So you have a 2014 Moto X that you bought from Wind Mobile and an Android 5.0 update notification has just popped up. Well, your first instinct would be to instantly press that download button and get your hands on all the Material Design elements that you’ve seen or heard of. However, multiple reports are now mentioning that the smartphone suffers from a boot-looping issue after downloading the update. Boot-looping essentially means that the device gets stuck in the boot up screen and doesn’t go any further. The extent or...
