[Update: Back in stock] US unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 $599 and Galaxy S8+ $699 on eBay

If you've been disappointed seeing all the international and dual-sim deals for the Galaxy S8/+ while the US unlocked models remain ignored, the day of reckoning has finally come. Now you can pick up the Galaxy S8 SM-G950U and S8+ SM-G955U on eBay for a pretty decent discount, at $599.99 and $699.99 respectively. If the S7 is any indicator, updates on the US unlocked models might be a bit late to arrive, but this is a good deal for Samsung's recent pair of flagships.

What ever happened to Google's dual-tab "Feed and Upcoming" update?

Last year Google announced an update to the Google app that would bring an additional tab to Google Now. The new interface was meant to separate general items in your feed from more personal data, by partitioning the latter into a new "Upcoming" section. Well, it's been six months since it was announced, and it seems as if almost no one has the feature.

HTC U11 review: A pretty good phone, if anyone's still listening

If you're reading Android Police, the HTC U11 is probably not a phone you're going to buy. I say this not because the U11 is bad (it's not - it's good), but because it's statistically likely: last year's HTC flagship, the 10, makes up around 0.38% of Android Police's mobile device traffic year to date, sitting in position number 37 on our most-popular devices list, right below the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 5 (yes, really). While the 10 was a marked improvement over the rather not-so-great One M9, there's no denying that even among phone enthusiasts HTC has rapidly seen its market and mind share decline.

Sphero is about to release an app-enabled Spider-Man toy

Sphero got itself recognized for making neat little toys that roll around. However, its next product doesn't move. It's an app-enabled Spider-Man toy with LCD eyes, speech recognition, and games in the companion app. We don't have all the details on this device yet, but retailer John Lewis accidentally pushed the product page live too soon, and Sphero published its app. That's good enough for a basic overview.

Google Voice notifications are broken for some, but Google is on the case

If you haven't been reliably receiving notifications for messages in Google Voice, you may not be alone. Some users at Google's Product Forums have been reporting that notifications from Google Voice don't always appear, and often don't show up until the app is opened and refreshed. Thankfully it seems that Google is on the case. If indicators for events like messages or voicemails in Google Voice do not show up in your notifications, perhaps it's worth taking a look at the threads over on Google's forums.

Google announces 'Backup and Sync' for Windows and Mac, will replace desktop Google Drive client

The Google Drive client for Windows and Mac is.. decent. It's a bit buggy, and at least on Windows, seems to disconnect every once in a while for no apparent reason. Back in March, we learned that Google was working on a new version called 'Backup and Sync,' because the company accidentally pushed an unfinished version to users which didn't work at all.

Now it seems like Backup and Sync is nearly ready for release.

New 'Chrome Home' interface is now enabled by default in Chrome Dev

We first spotted the 'Chrome Home' flag back in October, which moved Chrome's address bar to the bottom of the screen. Since then, Google has continued to refine it, but it still remained hidden behind a flag. Starting with the latest build of Chrome Dev 61, it appears to be turned on by default for most users.

Samsung launches the Galaxy J7 Max and Galaxy J7 Pro in India, including Samsung Pay

Samsung India has announced the launch of two new mid-range smartphones, the Galaxy J7 Max and Galaxy J7 Pro.
