Snapbreak has released 'Faraway 2: Jungle Escape,' and it improves on the original in every way

Snapbreak has been putting out some quality puzzle-filled escape games in the last year, with Faraway: Puzzle Escape clearly being their most notable and successful release. Well, it would appear that we now have a sequel available on the Play Store titled Faraway 2: Jungle Escape, and it takes everything from the original and improves it. This means you can expect a more interesting story, better puzzle mechanics, and of course some wonderfully understated yet breathtaking graphics.

Some people have made a point of likening it to the long-deceased Kyocera Echo, and while it is similar to that phone, the concept has evolved a fair bit. The Axon M is more mature, more considered, and more thoughtful - ZTE clearly spent time thinking about how a dual-screen phone would work, and how to minimize some of (though definitely not all) the pain points it would present.

New images of Alcatel's leaked top-tier 2018 lineup have appeared

Smartphone leaks are inevitable, no matter who you are. But they usually happen pretty close to a device's launch date, and they're usually only specific to a single product. Last month, much to Alcatel's dismay, serial leaker Evan Blass shared an image of not one but six upcoming Alcatel phones. Now, Blass has shared higher-resolution renders of those same devices.
