After launching its first phone in India at the end of last year, Micromax subsidiary Yu is now ready to follow up with the ever-so-slightly upgraded and pricier Yu Yureka Plus. Like last time, this handset ships running the latest version of Cyanogen OS.
What's new? Not much. The phone still comes with a Snapgragon 615 processor and 2GB of RAM. The excitement comes from the higher-resolution 1080p display, up from the previous model's 720p. Read More
Readers, we have a confession to make. This update to the Amazon shopping app actually came out on June 30th, over two weeks ago. Sorry about that. We spotted it, both on the Play Store and on APK Mirror, but didn't notice anything particularly new about it because Amazon neglected to upload a change log. They've done so today, and the new version (18.104.22.168 on my Nexus 6) actually adds some important new features to the app. Read More

At this year's Google I/O, we heard that HBO Now would eventually be available across all Android devices. Well, today appears to be that day. HBO appears set to drop Now into the Play Store. The company has listed Android as "coming later today" on its list of supported devices.
If you have one of Amazon's Fire tablets, your wait is already up. HBO Now is already available on the latest generation of slates, which includes the Fire HD 6 and Fire HD 7. Read More
Pocket knifes and USB chargers, those are two things I can never own enough of. I like to have both scattered around my house ready for use whenever the need arises. If you feel the same way about USB chargers, then take a look at this deal, I think I found another charger worth owning.
GeekBuying on Amazon has discounted the Tronsmart 42W three port USB charger to $13 today, down from $19. Read More
That Nexus 6 deal from earlier only lasted a few seconds, but it looks like there's slightly less demand for the HTC One M9. The unlocked version of this device in gold is on sale for $544.99, which is over $100 off the regular price. It's a lightning deal, so hurry up.
Amazon's Prime Day deals in the US have been sort of a bust so far. There have been some nice discounts, but they're selling out mega-fast. This time we've got a little lead time, so you can get all set up to snag a Nexus 6 for a mere $399. That's $100 off the recently reduced price. It'll probably go quick, though.
Amazon is celebrating its 20th year in operation with Prime Day. It's basically Black Friday in July, and it's live right now in the UK. In case you haven't had a chance to look yet, there are some cool Android-related deals for UK Prime subscribers. Check 'em out. Read More

Not today they aren't. Amazon has two sweet deals on a pair of different wireless charging plates. One of the two is sure to fit your needs and your budget.
First up we have the hockey puck shaped Anker PowerPort Qi Wireless Charger. It comes with a MicroUSB cable but you will need to provide your own power supply. Read More
There are few places more suited to using Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 capability (also known as Adaptive Fast Charging on Samsung devices) than in the car. You might have a 20 minute commute to work and in that span of time, you can get your phone halfway charged or better with the new charging specification, compared to the meager 10-20% you might get with a conventional 2.1A output. With today's deal on this Tronsmart car charger with both QC 2.0 and a conventional 2.4A port, you can get that in your vehicle for just $10.
The above image should give you a pretty good impression of what we're talking about. Read More
