A Nasty Zenfone 2 Bug Is Gobbling Up Gigabytes Of Storage With Giant Log Files

A number of Zenfone 2 owners have been making oddly similar complaints about a lack of storage space, and it looks like this isn't a case of poor management on their part. There may be a bug in the device that clogs the internal storage with multiple gigabytes of log files. What's worse, you can't do anything about it without root.

Huawei Announces Event On April 6th, Probably For The P9

Huawei is riding high after the release of the fantastic Nexus 6P, as well as the pretty okay Mate 8 and Honor 5X. The company's next move is to finally announce the P9, which has been rumored for months. Invites have been sent out for an event on April 6th in London. They didn't say it's for the P9, but it couldn't really be anything else.

[Update: Visible On Play Store Again] Verizon, Who Are A Bunch Of Jerks, Took Samsung Pay Off The Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge

Verizon, long known in the carrier business for being a bunch of jerks, have once again proven their general aptitude for jerkery with a pretty annoying modification to their versions of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.

[Deal Alert] Black Moto 360 Sport Temporarily Drops To $248 On Amazon - About $50 Off

The Moto 360 Sport is a lot like the standard second gen device, only with a silicone strap and a display with greater outdoor visibility. Some people, myself included, think that this means it should sell for less than the regular version of the watch which is outfitted with more premium materials.

Well, Motorolla may not agree with that idea, but Amazon is apparently on board with it because the price on the black model of the 360 Sport just dropped more than 50 bucks to $248.27. This is not an announced sale and may be Amazon's way of clearing a little extra inventory.

The Galaxy S7 Bares All In iFixit's Teardown, And It's Even Harder To Repair Than Last Year's Model

The folks at iFixit are all about empowering consumers to repair their own devices. But they never said that was easy, and such is the case with Samsung's 2016 flagship. As usual iFixit has meticulously torn apart the Galaxy S7 for your education and entertainment, and unsurprisingly, the components are even more intricate and hard to replace than they were on the Galaxy S6. Warning: gratuitous phone guts below.

[Deal Alert] HTC Discounts The 32GB One A9 To $399 Today, March 8 ($100 Off)

When HTC announced the One A9 back in October, it decided to sell it for an introductory price of $399. That made a lot of sense for what is essentially an upper midrange device with excellent build quality and very good specs. However, when the phone passed the preorder period, its price shot back up to $499 (or even $520 with AT&T), which made it a lot less desirable. After all, you were paying top dollar for a 5" 1080p smartphone with a Snapdragon 617 whereas you could get a more powerful processor and a better screen for the same amount of dough.

Google Has Added Limited OCR Features To Google Now On Tap

Google Now on Tap sounded ridiculously cool when it was announced last year, but the reality of the feature has been lackluster to say the least. Google is apparently toying with a feature that could make it much more useful. Some users are seeing optical character recognition (OCR) as part of On Tap, but the implementation seems very early.

Founder Of 4chan, Chris 'moot' Poole Joins Google Social Team

If you've never heard of or seen 4chan, you must be new to the internet and still unspoiled.

He's now working at Google on the social team.

[Deal Alert] Samsung 128GB EVO Class 10 MicroSD Card Drops Back Down To $39.99 On Amazon

I like microSD cards. No trusting your data to file hosting services. No being dependent on having access to Wi-Fi or having to worry about burning through your cellular data allotment. You know your files are accessible when you want them.

When you're looking to buy a microSD card, one aspect to consider is whether it's big. Small is fine, but really, what you want is big. 32GB holds more music than 16GB. 64GB puts 32GB to shame. 128GB crushes them both.
