The UMi Super is a stunning all-metal flagship killer that boasts big specs at a small price [Sponsored Post]

Some people prefer a phone to have impressive technical specifications to ensure the best performance. Others put a higher priority on a well-designed, beautiful device that feels substantial in their hand. With the UMi Super, however, you get the best of both worlds. Even better is that in addition to the handsome exterior and power underneath the hood, it all comes at a bargain price.

Sony Xperia X review: Sony's latest attempt to convince you to buy a phone from someone else

Sony has never been a major player in the North American smartphone market, but it still gives it a shot every now and then. Sony has famously found every way to fail at gaining traction with its Xperia Z line of smartphones. This year Sony traded the Z for an X (I guess it traded with Motorola) and has launched a US version of the Xperia X in relatively short order. This phone is a mix of old and new from Sony, but the combination is problematic—it might have kept the wrong things. Sony is looking to sell a phone with a mid-range SoC at a flagship price.

Amazon India scoops OnePlus by publishing the full listing of the OnePlus 3

Oh well, that was fast. It has barely been two hours since we posted about The Hindustan Times jumping the gun and publishing an ad for the OnePlus 3 that reveals the device as an Amazon Exclusive in India, but there's more. Amazon India appears to have grown a little antsy and published the official listing for the OnePlus 3 with all of the glorious details.

We're still sifting through all the details and will update the post as we go, but it seems that all of the leaked specs were accurate: a Snapdragon 820 runs the show, a 5.5" 1080p "Optic Amoled" display is on the front covered with Gorilla Glass 4, there are 6GB of RAM with 64GB of storage that don't appear to be coupled with a MicroSD slot, the charging port is USB 2.0 Type-C with "Dash Charge" technology for faster charging (5V at 4A), a 16MP camera with OIS is on the back and 8MP fixed-focus camera is on the front, and everything is powered by a 3000mAh non-removable battery.

Google Maps starts using crowdsourcing to verify suggested edits

A couple of months ago, while tearing down an updated APK, Cody found hints that Google Maps would be crowdsourcing to curate suggested edits to Places. The feature didn't appear to go live then, but it seems that it's been showing up for some users over the past couple of weeks.

If you're checking a place in Google Maps, you might start seeing notes in yellow below certain information telling you that someone has submitted an edit for said info. Tapping that surfaces a card which is very similar to the ones that Google Maps uses to ask you questions about Places.

6GB/64GB OnePlus 3 to be an Amazon Exclusive in India, priced at Rs. 27,999

The OnePlus 3 has been in the news so frequently these past few weeks that we're more than ready for the phone to be officially announced so we can move on from all the rumors. And speaking of rumors, after getting our clearest look yet at the device yesterday, we thought we were done with the leaks, but it seems that there's more to learn about the 3, and from very official and reliable sources to boot.

People in India who happened to check the Hindustan Times newspaper today might have noticed an interesting ad taking up a huge space in one of the pages.

ZeroLemon launches its 8500mAh extended battery case for the Galaxy S7 Edge

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has one of the best battery lives of any Android flagship on the market right now. It is, in fact, the first smartphone that I've carried in a long time that doesn't make me panic when I have to rush out of the house for a few hours on less than 40% battery. But this consistency and reliability don't mean that there are no times when I wish I could extend its battery life even more. Maybe for a road trip, a small weekend away, or any occasion where I don't know how long I will have to be away from a wall outlet.

Google Has A New UI For Suggesting Place Attributes In Maps

Google appears to be rolling out a new UI for suggesting attributes of businesses and places in Google Maps on Android. The new UI would appear to possibly be a replacement for the card-flow suggestions UI that has been rolling out for a number of a months now, and is substantially more compact.

The new attribute suggestions UI is surfaced right in the summary section of the place card of a business, with bolded text guiding Maps users to provide information. The UI is a categorized list of large radio-style selection buttons which allow you to suggest attributes for a business like "Beer," "Healthy options," or "Good for kids." Instead of the more time-consuming and arbitrary yes/no/maybe card flow, you get to choose which information you want to vouch for.
