We are currently running series of posts that provide solutions to Samsung Galaxy S4 problems reported by our readers.

We’ve already received hundreds of those problems and posts like this will be our way to answer those emails. If you have a problem with your phone you can’t figure out, feel free to email us at [email protected] and tell us about it. You may also visit...

Samsung launched two models of the Galaxy Mega last year to much success in developing markets. We haven’t seen a successor as of yet, but according to a new leak, it might not be far away. Known as the Galaxy Mega 2, Samsung is reportedly going to launch just the one model this time around. Almost striking a balance between the 5.8 inch and 6.3 versions of the Galaxy Mega from last year, the Galaxy Mega 2 will reportedly pack a 6 inch display sporting a 720p resolution. The smartphone is also expected to pack a 64-bit Qualcomm...

The Amazon Fire TV home media console made its debut back in April for just $99. This affordable home media console has received a decent 15% discount, bringing down the pricing to just $84 for a limited period. There’s no mention of the duration of this new promotion, so make sure you take advantage of it while you still can. The gaming controller which has to be purchased separately is also recommended with the Fire TV, which will set you back an extra $40. This will let you play games specifically designed for the console, so...

If you use Google Now to track the status of your flights, you will be pleased to know that the feature has just gotten a lot better with a new update. Users will now see cards for alternate flights in case their flight is delayed or if they missed it. This is quite a helpful feature to have in your fingertips and saves you the trouble of strenuously going through new flights and booking them again. These changes are seen with the latest update to Google Search, so if the app was updated on your device today, the feature should...

The likes of Square and PayPal have entered the mobile payments industry with a flurry and now Amazon is stepping in with its own product called Local Register. This $10 device snaps on top of your smartphone and lets you make credit or debit card payments instantaneously. The only limitation perhaps is the fairly small compatibility list which includes the Samsung Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S III in addition to the Kindle Fire HD and the HDX. The device is compatible with the Apple iPhones and iPads as well. The unit plugs into the...

It’s no secret that Motorola has been struggling to last in the mobile industry over the past couple of years. Even after Google’s acquisition in 2012, things didn’t change all that much. It was only after the company announced the Moto X followed by the Moto G that the company started seeing significant improvement in sales. The recently launched Moto E has been very crucial in the company’s partially changed fortunes as well, which is showing in its Q2 2014 earnings. The company’s quarterly earnings report...

Only yesterday we came across a report which indicated that the Nexus 6 or the Motorola Shamu will pack a Snapdragon 801 SoC and most likely a 1080p display. However, a new finding from GFX Bench is contradicting those reports by claiming that the smartphone will in fact sport a quad core Snapdragon 805 SoC clocked at 2.6 GHz and a 5.2 inch 2K resolution display. Unsurprisingly, Android L is expected to be running by default and the device is also revealed be packing a 12-megapixel camera on the back. The default storage appears to be...

Google has published the Android distribution chart for this month (until August 12), indicating good signs for KitKat, although Jelly Bean still leads the pack. With these figures, it can now be ascertained that one out of every five Android smartphone or tablet is running Android 4.4 or higher. Of course, with Android L on the horizon, things could be different. As of now, among all the Android devices running in the wild, 20.9% are based on KitKat. But 54.2% of Android smartphones and tablets are based on Jelly Bean (Android 4.1-4.3)....
