Yesterday, CyanogenMod announced the first wave of devices supporting CyanogenMod 13 (CM13) — the latest version of CyanogenMod based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The range of devices was reasonably small, containing just seven entries, but CyanogenMod promised they were working hard to get that list to expand rapidly.
It turns out they weren't kidding. Barely 24 hours later, the first CM13 nightly builds for the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P (codenamed 'bullhead' and 'angler,' respectively) have popped up on CyanogenMod's download page.
As always, nightly builds (and the first batch of them in particular) are not designed to be very stable, and there's no guarantee that everything will work properly. Read More
Looking for some big deals on big expandable storage? For those in the US, Amazon has some of the lowest prices we've ever seen on Samsung branded MicroSD cards, and no one has to stand outside in the cold to get them. At the time of writing the 128GB EVO MicroSDXC card is just $44.99, a stunning price for a capacity that would have cost $200 or more a few years ago. Read More
Back in July, we went hands on with some Tronsmart Quick Charge 2.0 chargers, which turned out to provide some of the best value in third-party chargers on the market today. We also gave away 50 units back then, so several of you guys got to see what these chargers were all about for yourselves.
Since then, Tronsmart has released a couple of new products (and updated some of the others), including an absolutely beastly new 5-port desktop charger called the Titan. Now, we've seen 5-port chargers before, so that's not what makes Titan such a beast — it's the fact that all five ports offer Quick Charge 2.0 as well as VoltIQ technology. Read More
Some of the most advanced games on Android are exclusive to the SHIELD devices, but even if you do have one of those, the best games are $5-10 each. Not today—a number of SHIELD games are on sale for 50% off. Time for a pre-Black Friday shopping spree? Read More
Part of the joy of picking up an Android Wear device is that you don't just get to be excited about over-the-air updates for your phone and tablet, you also get to receive them on your watch as well. Huawei is pushing out one now. It's going out in waves, but that means some wearers should receive the update right away. You may have to check for it manually. Read More
The Moto X is the most customizable smartphone on the market—you can already get various colors, leathers, and wood panels, but now there are limited edition devices with designs by Jonathan Adler. I'm not going to pretend I know who he is, but apparently he's quite popular with people whose sense of interior design goes beyond video game posters. Read More
Look, everyone has to charge their devices, and most of us have half a dozen chargers around the house, office, and in the car that helps make that happen not matter what the situation. If you've been looking for a new charger — perhaps a multiport one — then it's hard to find something better or more powerful than the ones that Tronsmart offers. They pretty much have everything you could possibly want, from a single-port car charger to a Quick Charge 3.0 wall charger or the new Tronsmart Titan, which has five Quick Charge 2.0 ports. It's a beast.
If you're looking to pick up one of Tronsmart's offerings, the company has a slew of coupon codes to help you save some cash money dollars. Read More
Viber is a free way to communicate with anyone else who has installed the app, which makes it easy to get sucked into a conversation and reveal information that you probably don't want floating around out there. Maybe you even go so far as to accidentally send the wrong message to the wrong person. No matter. The latest version of the Android app will let you remove a message from the devices of everyone in the conversation. Read More
