Google Play Protect combines several features that are already available for Android handsets, and puts them together under the Google Play Protect branding. This includes automatic scanning for viruses and the Find My Device feature. The Google Play Protect logo will soon appear on the packaging of every device with the Google Play Store pre-installed. The service has been pushed out to several Android models, and this has led to a problem with Bluetooth on some units.
For some reason, Google Play Protect red flags an app called Bluetooth Share 7.0, mistakenly listing it as being unsafe. …
Samsung’s such a huge player in the mobile space that all too often we see companies being accused of playing copycat to its actions. And while the smartphone manufacturer’s been a leader plenty of times in the past, right now we’re witnessing Samsung itself acting as the company catching up to others, as it finally embraces dual-camera hardware with the new Galaxy Note 8 flagship.
Does being a latecomer to this trend mean that Samsung’s had more time than everyone else to get its hardware and software right? Considering how successful it’s been with single cameras on phones like …
This coming Wednesday, we will see the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Just the other day, Sammy’s U.S. website jumped the gun by accidentally posting the U.S. unlocked version of the high-end phablet. The model number, UZKAXAA, fits in with the stateside unlocked version of the Samsung Galaxy S8. The listing has been since taken down and can no longer be found on the website.
There really isn’t much that we can take away from this brief appearance except that 64GB of native storage will indeed be found on the base model of the Galaxy Note 8. And it also suggests that the unlocked …
A recent update to Google Play Music (version 7.9.4920) brought along some unwelcome features with it. The update included a Bluetooth related bug, that in many cases, caused the app to crash as soon as it was opened. The update was sent to add support for the notification channels that will be available with Android O, and to change the look of the search history view on the streaming music service.
Now, a new update for Google Play Music has quickly hit the Play Store. Carrying version number 7.9.4921, the new offering’s changelist simply reads “Bug fixes.” Before applying the new update, …
Gravity – it is a funny thing, isn’t it? While it’s great at making life possible and keeping the universe together, it is also known for its ability to turn smartphone screens into sea salt.

Qualcomm announced an enhanced version of its quick charge technology last week and confirmed the first smartphone to feature Quick Charge 4.0+ is the Nubia Z17, a high-end smartphone recently launched in China.
Unfortunately, it turns out that Quick Charge 4.0+ won’t be usable with the Nubia Z17, at least at first. The Chinese company confirmed that its top tier smartphone comes with a Quick Charge 3.0 charger in the retail box, which doesn’t support the new technology.
Although the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset inside the Nubia Z17 has Quick Charge 4.0+ …
It’s been six months since Qualcomm introduced its new Quick Charge 4.0 technology, which faster charging than its predecessor, allowing a smartphone to go from empty to 50% in just 15 minutes.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G is a very popular handset on the market this month and now we offer a quick comparison with a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G vs Micromax Yu Yureka review – likely to be one of Xiaomi’s biggest rival handsets.
Both are very capable in terms of hardware performance, with the Yu Yureka specs being arguably better as it’s the newer out of two.
At a glance, we can see that both are equipped with a 5.5-inch display screen with the same resolution too – 720 x 1280 pixels.
Both have a 13 megapixel camera on the rear and both also have a high quality 5MP camera on the front as well which is great. The Yu Yureka is a running on a Quad-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon 615 CPU with 2GB of RAM, but in comparison the Redmi Note 4G differs slightly with a Quad-core 1.6 Snapdragon 400 with 2GB of RAM.
The graphics capability of both handsets are different too. While the Redmi Note is built on the Adreno 305 GPU, the newer Yu Yureka comes with the latest Adreno 405 system.
Both will obviously play any Android game that the Play Store offers, but the Yu Yureka will offer that extra bit of performance that a game may require.
Elsewhere, the Yu Yureka comes with 16GB of internal storage, whereas the Redmi Note 4G only comes with 8GB – both devices have the ability to expand storage with MicroSD card.
As you can see, both smartphones feature similar specs but the Redmi Note 4G may still be more desirable due to a lower price on the market.
