The Samsung Gear VR was only compatible with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 at launch. However, the Galaxy Note 4 with an Exynos chipset was still missing this feature for some reason. Well, that has been fixed now with Samsung sending out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the smartphone, thus bringing support for this Oculus powered virtual reality headset. The Gear VR is fairly limited in its availability, so not everybody with a Galaxy Note 4 will be able to use the headset. That being said, it’s always good to know that your...

Google has partnered with multiple manufacturers to bring Android Auto hardware to vehicles, with Pioneer being the only manufacturer with dedicated hardware in the market. And to better operate these vehicles with Android Auto compatible hardware, Google has now launched a dedicated Android Auto application on the Play Store, which should let users operate key elements of their car using the application (assuming they have the necessary hardware). Google mentions that Android Auto hardware will be officially available from Pioneer starting...

Security is a major concern for smartphone users these days. And to put customers at ease, manufacturers and software developers come up with security apps to ensure that your stolen or lost device is located quickly. Android Device Manager serves this very purpose for those using an Android handset. And now, Google has just introduced support for this security feature on Android Wear smartwatches as well, meaning that you can now locate your lost phone directly through your wearable. Here’s what Google had to say about the new...

Lenovo’s CEO Yang Yuanqing might have revealed the design of the 2nd gen Moto 360. He sent out a post on Chinese social networking site Weibo, simply calling it the Moto 360. While it wouldn’t have caught any attention initially, the fact that the post was almost immediately removed from the site has given rise to speculation. So could this be an early design of the second gen Moto 360? We’d like to think so, considering that the models shown here are available in a couple of sizes while the original Moto 360 only has...

Gaming accessories for Android devices have a decent market out there. We’ve seen the likes of Ouya and several others doing pretty well in this market segment. It seems like Chinese OEM OnePlus could also step into the gaming accessories segment by launching a game controller. The company hasn’t made anything official yet, but has dropped hints through social portals, which leaves very little to the imagination. One of the teaser says – “You’re in control” while another simply says “Start a new...

Google has reportedly visited LG’s headquarters earlier today, which has raised led some to speculate about the partnership between the two companies. After making two of the best Nexus smartphones, Google and LG could be teaming up for yet another product according to new reports. It’s not known as to what was on the agenda during the meet, but given that this wasn’t publicized by either company, it is possible that something secret was discussed during the event. This comes after we heard of Chinese manufacturer Huawei...

We all knew this day would eventually come, but it’s still pretty sad.

Sony has somehow become a specialist in the mini smartphone segment with its Compact series of smartphones. The company has now launched yet another device which fits into the segment quite well, known as the Xperia J1 Compact. The device is pretty identical to the Xperia Z1 Compact which was launched early last year, so much so that it seems like a rehashed version of the smartphone. The device also comes with a metal frame on board, which adds to the overall appeal. This is a step up from the plastic build used in most Sony flagships....
