And to demonstrate exactly how quickly this can charge your phone, the company has posted a new video which shows what the technology can do. A total of three Nexus 6 units are used for this demonstration, with one using a 5 volts/1 amp charger while the other uses a 5 volts/2 amps charger. The third...

After Google’s failed attempts to acquire the Twitch game streaming service, new reports suggest that the company could be looking to take them head on by incorporating such a feature on YouTube. The complete details of this new service are not known yet, but it does make sense given that YouTube perhaps is the only video site out there with a real shot to take on Twitch. YouTube’s live streaming capabilities will reportedly get a major boost with Google believed to have deployed 50 engineers for the purpose. It is further...

The Google Sheets, Docs and Slides applications on Android have just been updated with some minor tweaks on board. The update makes the ‘Keep on Device’ option more visible to the users, so you won’t have to search for it from the menu separately. The create new document button on Docs now asks you to either create a Microsoft Word document or a standard Google Document, which is a very neat touch. There aren’t any other major changes here apart from what we’ve mentioned above. But these are enough to get...

This device with LTE can now be yours for just $89.99 courtesy of a deal over at Woot.com.

According to a new report, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge could bring Samsung back to its old success. It has been predicted that the company is going to ship 330 million units of its smartphones, including all the other midrange devices that it has to offer. Unfortunately for Samsung, its midrange smartphones haven’t had the sort of impact that they had a couple of years ago, largely due to emergence of Chinese players like Xiaomi, Meizu etc, who offer better hardware for a fraction of the cost. The estimation of...

If you’ve ever found yourselves pet peeved by smartphone battery shortcomings, odds are tablet energy efficiency makes your skin crawl and blood boil.
