iPhone 8 Features

iOS 11 beta 4 is now available to download, and we already showed you what to expect from the new release on top of the usual fixes and improvements that come with each new beta iteration. Included in the list of new iOS 11 capabilities is a feature that seems to indicate the iPhone 8 won’t lose the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, as some reports claim. But it does suggest the home button might be going away.

We finally have a launch date for Nokia’s first ‘iPhone killer’

Nokia 8 Release Date

More than 10 years have passed since the first iPhone hit stores, but Nokia was never able to come up with a decent iPhone rival. An undisputed leader in the mobile business when the iPhone arrived, Nokia had to die a slow and painful death before it embraced Android. Fast forward to today, and we already have there Nokia-branded Android handsets in stores. Furthermore, HMD Global, the company making these handsets, is about to launch the first flagship phone that does two critical things: It runs the latest Android version, and it displays a Nokia logo.

MetroPCS just gave you another great reason to lose your contract

MetroPCS scam calls vs T-Mobile

There's fewer and fewer reasons for anyone to tie themselves to a postpaid monthly cell contract. It used to be that postpaid customers got all the good perks, better pricing, and higher-tier plans, but that just isn't true any more.

This week's example: MetroPCS, T-Mobile's prepaid arm, will roll out spam call identification and blocking services that T-Mobile currently offers to its postpaid customers. The features -- which, by the way, are identical to anti-spam features Verizon charges $3 for -- will be free for all MetroPCS customers starting tomorrow.

Google’s Pixel 2 might be the fastest smartphone released this year

Pixel 2 Rumors

Every year, flagship phones get faster. That's not a surprise any more, and devices like the Galaxy S8 and the OnePlus 5 pack mobile chips built on 10nm tech, a first for smartphones. Every high-end handset this year will have similar chip technology inside, including the iPhone 8 and the Pixel 2.

But new rumor claims that Google’s upcoming pair of phones will have a chip version that’s going to be even faster than the Galaxy S8’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.

Samsung’s beefier Galaxy S8 leaks in new video

Galaxy S8 Active Rumors

The Galaxy S8 is one of the best-looking phones that you can buy right now. A simple trick like stretching the display across almost the entire front side of the handset did wonders for a phone that already looked amazing.

But good things don't always come in pairs, and Samsung is about to launch a Galaxy S8 version that’s not going to be nearly as pretty as the original.

Apple just dropped iOS 11 beta 4 for developers

 Apple just released a new beta of iOS 11 ahead of the final iOS 11 release in September. Things are still quite rough and I wouldn’t recommend installing the beta on a production device just yet. You don’t want to risk having your phone become useless. The beta 4 is only available if you’re a registered developer for now. While Apple also has a public beta program, the… Read More

The Galaxy Note 8 might still have one surprise left in store

Galaxy Note 8 Release Date

In less than a month, Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy Note 8, a phone that’s hardly a well-kept secret. Meant to restore the Note line to glory after last year's Note 7 debacle, the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to be a variation of the Galaxy S8, which is easily one of the best Android smartphones you can buy right now.

The new Note will come with stylus features built into the software, and it’ll ship with an S Pen accessory just like every Note that preceded it. Other than that, the Galaxy Note 8 will have only one feature that’s not found on the Galaxy S8, and that’s a dual rear camera. But it appears Samsung may also have one other surprise for buyers looking to buy a new Note instead of a Galaxy S this year.
