Amazon Fire Phone: All you need to know

Now that the Fire Phone event is all wrapped up, what have we learned? We're getting a phone with a different look, but not a true 3D effect. Prime is involved, even moreso than the Kindle Fire tablets. If you’re looking for a one-stop destination for all your Fire Phone info, we’ve got you covered.


To start, the screen isn’t really a “3D” display. The orientation of the device gives you different looks at what’s on the screen, which is why Amazon is tracking your face with four cameras ont he front of the device. You get the opportunity to “peek” around corners and such in games, so it’s a cool addition — but likely not reason to snatch one up.

Firefly, though — that might be a reason people will want this one. The service lets you snap pics of objects you may want to buy, and links you to the Amazon listing for the item. Even better, you can save items for later, letting you just walk around snapping photos of stuff you want to buy.

Are you one of those folks out there who are rocking to a Windows Phone 8 device? Well, most of the Windows Phone-powered smartphones from Nokia tend to come with a decent camera, which some other high end models would have the ability to deliver stunning shots instead. With Windows Phone 8.1, it will allow the Nokia Camera app to send such photos to the OneDrive’s backup folder. Previously, only low quality photos will enjoy this privilege, but now, high quality photos would be on the receiving end of such treatment, although it will require you to hook up to a Wi-Fi network instead.

Huawei of China might have had its fair share of smartphones released to the masses in the past, and certainly the Huawei Ascend P6 has captured its legions of fans when it rolled out last year, considering how it did really well in the international market. Having said that, it was in November last year when the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Ascend P6 was announced to arrive soon, but it is now in mid-May this year with nothing in sight. Hence, we cannot help but be a little bit apprehensive upon hearing that the Ascend P6 will receive the KitKat update this June.

Samsung's alleged Galaxy K camera phone leaks out again


Ahead of Samsung's K-themed event in Asia, more images of the Korean manufacturers next camera focused smartphone have leaked out. Previously referred to as the Galaxy S5 Zoom, the new moniker is reportedly the Galaxy K – which would tie in nicely to the forthcoming event – and it has that distinctive optical zoom lens on the back.

Perhaps more importantly, this device looks to be slimmer than its predecessor, the Galaxy S4 zoom, which is important since it's supposed to be a phone as well as a camera. The Galaxy S4 zoom was far too cumbersome to use as an everyday smartphone, whereas this looks much more manageable.

Showing up a bit late to the iOS 7 party, Viber has released an update to the iPhone version of the application that incorporates the same flat design we’ve seen throughout the new operating system.

Viber had been in pretty desperate need of a redesign for quite some time. On the one hand, there’s something charming about an up-and-coming app that looks slightly outdated or unpolished (the way Snapchat used to be), but Viber has grown up and needs a design that matches that level of maturity.

Xiaomi unveils Mi routers and set-top box, no tablet in sight

Xiaomi has decided to one-up fledgling OnePlus by holding its press event half an hour ahead of the other. However, Xiaomi's surprise lineup, which consists of two routers and a TV box, might not be what many have been excitedly waiting for.


First up is the Mi Router, something that has already been common knowledge among testers. This wireless router supports dual-band WiFi 802.11 ac and comes with its own 1 TB hard drive. The form of the device itself is rather strange, sporting a elongated cylindrical shape that might remind some of one of Apple's products.

OnePlus One

OnePlus has finally taken off the veils from its highly hyped device. It has promised to never settle for mediocrity and put out the best of the best, but the question now is whether it was able to deliver on its word. Like many devices, it's a hit on some and a miss on others, but the market will be the final judge once it finally lands in the hands of users.

It’s a rare employer these days that expects workers to stay consistently at one desk, in one office: travel and flexible working practices are the order of the day.

No longer does the word ‘workplace’ designate a cubicle: instead, it implies a state of readiness for a mobile workforce that is expected to spring into action any time, any place… at home, on a train or at a hotel, on a plane or in an airport, or at your company’s other offices. To make yourself ready for these situations, then, you’ve got to think tools: which apps can best facilitate your transition into mobile working? Here’s a few to get you started….

T-Mobile bribes BlackBerry users to switch to a Samsung Galaxy S5

T-Mobile is at it again with another "promo" that will surely ruffle BlackBerry's feathers once more. This time, however, the US carrier is encouraging its BlackBerry-toting subscribers to switch not to an iPhone but to any Samsung smartphone.

In exchange for jumping to a Galaxy S5 or a Galaxy Note 3 or any of Samsung's other Android devices, T-Mobile will be giving $200 worth of gift cards. But if you are not a fan of the Korean manufacturer's plastic lineup, you can still avail of a lower $100 trade by switching to any smartphone that isn't a BlackBerry. Wherever you go, there is something in store as long as you denounce your allegiance to BlackBerry.


Samsung Galaxy S5 now supported by TWRP recovery

Tinkerers and modders who desire the Galaxy S5 for its hardware but with very little interest in Samsung's bloatware now have a fighting chance. The latest 2.7 version of the Team Win Recovery Project, better known as TWRP, is now available for Galaxy S5 devices of the "klte" variant.


TWRP rose through the ranks at a time when Clockwork Recovery or CWM was seemingly stagnating in terms of new features, primary among them being the lack of a touch-based interface. Although Koushik "Koush" Dutta is back to developing CWM, he has also signified that he doesn't really want to take CWM beyond the simple and focused recovery that it is. This leaves TWRP a bigger room to grow.
