February 19, 2016 Leave a comment

Back in December last year, Samsung said that its mobile payments service Samsung Pay will launch in China “as soon as early 2016”. Now, the South Korean company has announced that the launch will happen in the month of March, although no specific date was mentioned.

The China launch will be followed by rollout in Australia, Brazil, Singapore, Spain and, the UK later this year. The company has also added Canada to the launch roadmap. For those who missed, recently-leaked promotion material revealed that the service will also be available in Russia soon.

Samsung also revealed that around five million registered Samsung Pay users processed over 500 million dollars in the first six months. The mobile payments service is currently available in the company’s home country as well as the United…

Motorola says no Lollipop for DROID Ultra/Mini/Maxx, compensates by offering discounts on Turbo 2 and Maxx 2

February 19, 2016 Leave a comment

Back in October last year, Motorola announced a list of devices that the company said will receive the Android Lollipop update. The list included the DROID Ultra/Mini/Maxx. However, it has now been announced that these handsets won’t be receiving the update.

The announcement was made by Motorola’s senior director of software product management David Schuster on Google+. “We know how important software upgrades are to our customers, and we’re very sorry that we are unable to provide the upgrade,” he said in the post.

Schuster, however, said that the company is compensating for this by offering DROID Ultra/Mini/Maxx users discounts on the Droid Turbo 2 and Maxx 2 – the former will be available for $524 ($100 off), while the latter will cost $334 ($50 off).

The offer expires on Thursday, May 19, and the promo code must be redeemed by Thursday, June 2. For more details, head to the Source 2 link below.

The Slippery iPhone Slope: From FBI Access to Terrorists To The Next O.J. Simpson

February 19, 2016 Leave a comment

There is no comparison between the depravity of the San Bernardino terrorists who killed 14 civilians and the generalized crimes of others. And an assault on the country cannot be compared to individualized crimes seen every day in America. So logically, an FBI request and Court Order to Apple to create a software program that provides back door access beyond Apple’s current encryption to iPhone data of the terrorists can simply be placed in its rare space – a rare Order for only the rare terrorist attacks on our shores.

MORE photos of the Samsung Galaxy S7 (and S7 edge)

February 19, 2016 Leave a comment

Naturally, just a few days before the unpacked event, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge pose for many more angles and shots for our eyes to feast upon.

Moreover, the physical appearance of the Galaxy S7 is not too different from its predecessor. The curves that the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge make are more pronounced and round than those of the S6 or iPhone.

The bump has definitely shown changes with some shrinkage. As well, a new rumor has surfaced pertaining its still a little difficult to confirm a possible drop in the pixel count of the camera sensor from the S6’s 16MP camera to a possible 12.1MP.

Head over to the source link at Android Headlines to check out the butt-load of photos of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.

There are close-ups of the camera setup, all 4 edges, front, rear, and some views of the software information found on the Galaxy S7. There are also shots of the phone next to a ruler to better gage the actual size.
