A dark, stormy cloud hung over Samsung’s head for a good time leading up to the announcement of the Galaxy S8 earlier this year. That’s because the company was still enduring the fallout from its failure with the Note 7 during the crucial holiday season last year. Initially, it seemed as though the phone was going to rocket to stardom thanks to positive reviews from critics around, but things went off on a tangent once reports started surfacing about Note 7 handsets exploding. 

Eventually, it was determined that battery faults were the culprit in the phone’s issue, …

Note 8 is the first phone with optical stabilization on both cameras

Samsung just got on the stage to extol the virtues of the Note 8’s new dual camera, and, among the adjustable focus pre- and post-shot, the 2x zoom, and other shenanigans already done with dual cameras on other phones, it slipped one unique feature in a jiffy. It turns out that the Note 8 is the first major phone that has optical image stabilization on both camera sensors. 

Thus, the 12MP wide angle lens and the 12MP telephoto one both have their system of springs and shocks that compensate for hand movements hundreds of times per second, making …

The Google 8 announcement event had special Oreos for the guests… but you can't get them

So, Google finally launched Android 8 and revealed its name — as the fans have been speculating for years now, the O build of Android is named after the popular Oreo cookies. And what better way to celebrate the OS update than with a bunch of Oreos handed out at the announcement event?

Actually, make them custom cookies while you’re at it. Yup, Google ordered a special batch of Oreos for the launch event — ones with the Android mascot engraved on the cookie and the cream changed to green, instead of being white. We can only hope that it was the same sweet stuff and not, say, wasabi or something …

Is LG taking jabs at the Galaxy Note 8 with these new V30 teasers?

LG and Samsung are both getting ready to release brand new high-end smartphones with large screens: the V30 and the Galaxy Note 8, respectively.

Less than 24 hours before the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 becomes official, tipster extraordinaire Evan Blass comes through again with an image of the high-end phablet in Orchid Gray. In addition to the dual-camera setup on back, we can see the fingerprint scanner to the very right of the camera module, which also includes a pair of lenses and the dual LED flash. Because the flash is in between the camera lenses and the fingerprint scanner, the chances of either lens getting smudged by a user blindly seeking to unlock the device is low.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to feature a 6.3-inch …
