Skype v5.11 Adds Heads Up Notifications With Call And Reply Buttons

When you get a text message in Google Messenger, you don't have to open the app to initiate a reply. You just tap the buttons that appear in the notification. This capability appeared years sooner in apps like Gmail, which allowed you to reply, archive, and delete messages.

It turns out this feature is available in the latest Android version of Skype. When an incoming notification appears in your notification shade, you will have the option to call the person or reply via text. These heads up notifications will also appear on top of your current app, so you don't have to swipe down the notification drawer to read them.

[Deal Alert] SanDisk's Gargantuan 200GB MicroSD Card Drops Another $20, Now Costs $200 On Amazon

This is a deal alert, but only in the sense that the 200GB SanDisk microSD card has hit its lowest price yet. Instead of $220, it now goes for $200. That is less money than you would have spent two weeks ago for the same product.

That said, microSD cards in general aren't that expensive. You could get a 128GB card for $60. On a per-gigabyte basis, paying over three times as much for less than twice the data isn't really saving money.

So why splurge for the 200GB card? Well, it's convenient not to have to swap out memory, especially when the process involves taking off the back.

Source: New "Nexus 5" By LG Will Feature Snapdragon 808, 5.2" 1080p Display, 3GB RAM, 2700mAh Battery, USB-C, And More

We've received information from a reliable source detailing basic specifications for the upcoming 5.2" Nexus phone being produced by LG. First things first: we don't even know if Nexus 5 is the name. And because it's probably the most-wanted piece of information: we don't know excactly how much it will cost, other than to say it's likely it will be at a sub-flagship level. Does that mean $300? $400? $500? We really don't know, so your guess is as good as ours here.

Getting back to the major specifications, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 808 will be powering the whole show, and that's no real surprise - the 808 has been consistently rumored to feature in one of the two alleged upcoming Nexus phones.

OnePlus 2 Review: The Flagships Are Safe For Now

OnePlus came out of nowhere last year with a phone that appealed to a lot of cynical smartphone-using curmudgeons. A device with great specs, capable software, and a reasonable price? What's the catch? Oh, invites. Well, the OnePlus One still managed to win a lot of fans, and now the company's followup, the OnePlus 2 is (sort of) available. This device also has an invite system, and the price is a little higher. Is it worth scrounging and begging to get an invite to buy this one, though? After all, they claim it's a "2016 flagship killer." Let's find out.
