Moto G7 may launch in Brazil ahead of MWC in February

Even before Motorola was acquired by Lenovo, the company found major success in its Moto G series of smartphones.

Their mid-range series of smartphones offers a capable combination of hardware at a fair price...

[Update: Not present] Adoptable storage may come to Samsung devices with Android Pie

When Android Marshmallow was launched back in 2015, it introduced a feature that dramatically improved the user experience for many, myself included: adoptable storage. When you first introduce a new microSD card on an Android Marshmallow (or higher) device with adoptable storage enabled, the system will ask if you want to use it as portable...

LG G8 may launch in March separately from a new 5G phone

5G is gearing up to be the big buzzword of 2019. Several manufacturers and carriers are already showing their interest in this budding technology.

Nokia 5.1 Plus & Nokia 6.1 Plus get Pro Camera in latest updates

I think it's safe to say Windows Phone (now "Windows 10 Mobile") was not a success. The lack of high-quality applications and services on the platform prevented many users from switching. The unpopularity of Windows Phone also hurt the growth of the Nokia Lumia line - the Finnish manufacturer's vision for the mobile industry. Whether...

HMD Global's Nokia devices aren't great for development since most of them don't have unlockable bootloaders, but at least they get consistent updates. The Nokia 5.1 Plus was launched in August with Android 8.1 (Android One) and HMD Global is now rolling out the Android Pie update to the device. The Nokia 5.1 Plus features a 5.9-inch...

Xiaomi Mi Play and HTC Desire 12s forums are open

2018 is coming to a close and Android fans have a lot to choose from. The holiday season may be over but that doesn't mean you still can't get a good deal on a budget phone. Sure, it won't have the fanciest of features, but budget phones can do a lot these days, and two...

Google Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite may launch on Verizon in the US

Rumors of a "Lite" Google Pixel phone can be traced all the way back to April of this year. However, the rumors really picked up steam last month when we got our first look at leaked photos of the devices. Google certainly appears to be working on a Pixel 3 Lite and a new report...

Motorola P40 renders reveal display hole and 48MP rear camera

Motorola appears to have another P-series phone headed to the Chinese market, and according to renders published by @Onleaks via 91Mobiles, their 2019 take on it will feature a hole-punch camera instead of the iPhone-esque display notch. Dubbed the Motorola P40, its primary rear camera is also expected to be a 48MP snapper comparable to...

Here’s when the Samsung Galaxy S8, Note 8, and 28 other devices will get the Android Pie update

Android Pie, in itself, brought several changes to the Android framework itself, as well as to the user interface and the overall user experience. Some features were introduced, and some were removed, for better or worse, but the overall experience is a lot different from Android Oreo. Android Pie has been released now to several...
