Have you been hoping for a YouTube app that would more effectively sear your retinas when you open it in a dark room? Well, Google appears to be testing a new UI that will do just that. Multiple people are seeing a new YouTube app interface that drops the red elements, going for an all black and white look. Read More
When these things pop up, I can't say that I'm surprised anymore. ZTE is working on a new phone from the looks of it. It has physical dimensions and weight, a screen, a battery, and wireless connectivity. Shocking, right? All cheekiness aside, this very well could be ZTE's 2017 flagship. Codenamed A2018, it recently showed up at TENAA, China's version of the FCC, for certification and approval purposes. Thanks to the magic of Google Translate, we have some possible specifications for you all. Read More
There's a small but neat little change in the Amazon Kindle app on Android: you can now not only search for words inside the book you're reading, but you can also search for what you've personally added as a note (like in the screenshot above). Words included in sentences and paragraphs you've highlighted will also show on top of all search results (screenshot below). This makes it easier to find a sentence you've highlighted in the book or a note you've written about a specific section or sentence. Read More
May has just begun and we already have a new Open Beta for the OnePlus 3 and 3T. It's certainly more exciting than the last one, bringing a changelog that includes more than bug fixes and optimizations (they're still there, but whatever). As usual, I've posted the changelog below. Read More
Google announced today on its India Blog that it's introducing a new home screen layout for Maps on Android. The new interface has been designed exclusively for users in India. In what looks like a streamlined version of the pull-up tab found in the US and European versions of the app, here we see cards that are optimized to be less data-hungry and load faster on poor connections across India.

With the Play Store's new ability to have apps go free momentarily, we rarely feel the need to highlight the weekly 10-cent deals anymore because they do seem less appealing than something going completely free, so we've been posting them in our long deal roundup posts instead. But we're making an exception here because the 10-cent discount is hitting one app you might have on your watchlist and that hasn't dropped in price a single time in 5 years: MX Player Pro. (Actually it even rose in price from $5.22 to $5.99 in December 2015.)
MX Player Pro is the ad-free version of the beloved and powerful MX Player, a video player that can handle more video formats and encodings than I care to list here. Read More
Nobody wants their brand new $700+ phone with gorgeous QHD Super AMOLED display to have a red tint. That completely ruins the experience and it undermines one of the most important aspects of the phone since it's the one you interact with all the time. Read More
Do you want a Home? Do you really need a Home in your life? A small little Home you can call your own... oops, sorry, you have to call it Google or it won't reply to you. But in case you answered yes to the first two questions and you were clear about the fact that I was talking about the Google Home speaker-slash-personal-assistant, then you might be in luck today.
Newegg is discounting the Google Home $15 from $129 to $114, which is exactly the same discount as the official Google Store, but it's also throwing in a $20 gift card, making this one of the best Home deals we've seen in a while. Read More
Oppostyle.com used to be one of the sites you could go to if you wanted to buy an Oppo phone. It had localizations for Europe, North America, and the International market, and it was recognized by Oppo community employees as the company's official distributor. However, the site is now closed and the last instance we can find of it online was back on February 11. At the time, it was showing a flash sale for the Find 7, Find 7a, R7, R7s, and R7 Plus.
We can't tell for sure when the shutdown happened between February 11 and today, but it is definitely now showing the sign posted in the image above. Read More
