The all-new Google Daydream View VR is half price at Best Buy (today only)

Great news for those who like to ride the waves of the latest trends in technology, as the newest Daydream View VR from Google is now available for purchase at Best Buy at half price.

It’s one of the best choices if you are into the VR stuff, even if it doesn’t offer the same level of immersion like HTC’s Vive or Facebook’s Oculus. The Daydream View VR is an improvement over the original headset, so it’s worth the upgrade at this price.

Speaking of which, Best Buy is selling the Daydream View VR for just $59, although it’s usually available for $100. There’s a catch though, as the …

Amazon Kindle app for iOS updated with split view mode for iPad, other improvements

Amazon continues to improve its Kindle app for iOS devices, even if some of the new features added come a bit later than we would really want. In any case, the latest update brings the app to version 6.5 and adds a couple of new features and enhancements in the process.

The most important is the new split view mode for iPads, which allows Amazon Kindle users to resize the app to multi-task while reading without having to switch context. The new mode will enable you to stop reading and respond to a message, but without having to switch between apps.

There is a countdown timer that ticks off the seconds until the 2018 Samsung flagships are unveiled next Sunday in Barcelona. Now you need to think about what Sammy has done here.

This Android app lets you view the remaining battery of your Apple AirPods, BeatsX earbuds

Got an Android device? Got AirPods?

For many, this unholy combo is not an uncommon one as Apple’s AirPods are actually not-too-shabby wireless earbuds that work well with just about any phone out there. But as you might expect, Apple’s AirPods connected to an Android device don’t give you the same level of functionalities that an iOS device would, and one of the glaring missing features is battery level. 
You’d agree that this is a pretty important aspect of wireless earbuds, and thanks to the endless mental resource of do-good developers, Android …

Whew, finally a budget handset with the trendy 2:1 aspect ratio screen that is smaller than 6 inches! We kid, but there is a whole lot of unfulfilled demand for phones with elongated bodies and thin top and bottom bezel, aka the Full View/Vision and Infinity displays of this world that aren’t of the 5.99″ and up variety. 
Enter the Honor 9 Lite that is escaping its Asian confines today to arrive in Germany, Italy, France, Spain and United Kingdom at a very affordable EUR 229 price. The handset sports a 5.65″ Full View FHD+ screen, meaning it has slimmed-down …

This Galaxy S9 and S9+ official Clear View cases preview is a tell-all

If there has been any doubt that the Galaxy S9 will come with a single, and the S9+ with a dual camera, while both will feature a new finger scanner placement below their lenses, just like on Samsung’s new A-series, their official cases leaked in the video above, should dispel with the soul-searching. 

We cross-checked the case model numbers stamped inside, and they coincide with the leaked list of official Samsung accessories for the S9 and S9+. The EF-ZG960C number denotes a Clear View Cover case for the S9, for instance, and so on, so the cases …

Blu, seller of affordable unlocked smartphones, is seemingly getting ready to launch its very first handset with an 18:9 aspect ratio display, thus joining the elongated screen trend started last year by the LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8. According to an Amazon listing, the upcoming Blu handset is called Pure View (no relation to Nokia or Microsoft), and will cost $199.99 in the US.  
The screen of the Blu Pure View is a 5.7-inch HD+ one, which should mean it’s got a 720 x 1440 pixel resolution – not terrible, but not too exciting, either. The new smartphone …

Unveiled last month, Honor View 10 made its debut on the market a few weeks ago. Even though the smartphone ships with Android 8.0 Oreo and Huawei’s latest EMUI 8.0, there are a couple of features missing from the Honor View 10 to make it even more appealing to customers.
