Never underestimate the power of nature — it continues to be filled with the most alarming creepy crawlers in the world.

Every year it seems like there’s no escaping from what nature has to offer. There were 13 times (and definitely more) of nature not holding back from being absolutely terrifying.

Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime (2017) leaked specs include Exynos-based chipset, 3GB RAM

Besides the entry-level Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) that we reported about a few days ago, Samsung is likely to launch another cheap smartphone by the end of the year, the Galaxy J5 Prime (2017).

Well, the name isn’t official yet, but there’s a high chance that the leaked device is a sequel to the Galaxy J5 Prime, also known as Samsung SM-G570. The unannounced device that has been recently listed at GFXBench has a consequential model number, SM-G571, which is why we believe it to be a follow-up to the Galaxy J5 Prime.

The sequel to the Galaxy J5 Prime is expected to pack a 1.4GHz quad-core …

The best compact phones of 2017

In 2017, the concept of what a “compact phone” could be was flipped around and old notions were shaken up. Since the introduction of the 18:9 aspect ratios, saying that a phone’s display has a 5.7-inch diagonal size doesn’t really mean that you’ll be holding a large phablet in your hand. On the contrary — it might just be a nicely narrow, easy to wield phone.

So, in this new age of smartphones, what is to be considered a small handset? Manufacturers have been stubbornly sticking to a 5-inch minimum for most of their screens in the recent past, which made it hard …

2017 top-tier smartphones that still have a fingerprint scanner on the front

Fingerprint scanners were made popular by the iPhone 5s way back in 2013. Housed in the home button at the front, Touch ID made phone unlocking super simple — press home button to wake the phone, wait for it to scan your finger to unlock. Naturally, it quickly became a trend and is now a standard feature that’s making its way to mid-range and even some lower level phones.

But not every phone has their fingerprint scanner on the front. Some had them installed on their backs, next to the camera, some have them on the side frame. In fact, with the war on the bezel …
