Fact Check: Eldar Murtazin Definitely Did Not Say Anything About The Galaxy S7's "2-Day" Battery Life

If you're not aware of the existence of a man named Eldar Murtazin, I'm inclined to consider you lucky. But now you're about to hear of him anyway, because the sometimes-right (but often not) mobile industry veteran and serial rumor-monger was the subject of a spate of posts on blogs over the last two days for claims he didn't even make.

While I'm as quick as anyone to call BS on just about anything Murtazin claims, what happened recently with a decided non-statement of Murtazin's is a bit aggravating. Around a day-and-a-half ago, Murtazin tweeted the following.

[Deal Alert] Snag A 32GB AT&T Unlocked LG G Flex 2 New For $199.99

Few would consider the G Flex 2 the most exciting phone of 2015, but it was unique. The Snapdragon 810-powered follow-up to a slightly curved phone from 2013 lost some of the weight its predecessor (or rather, the people who bought it) carried around.

ZeroLemon Releases 8500mAh External Battery Cases For The Galaxy Note 5 And Galaxy S6 Edge Plus For $60

With gigantic screens and the extra internal space that goes along with them, Samsung's plus-sized flagship phones already offer large batteries: 3000mAh for both the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. But for some that just isn't enough, and that's where third-party battery supplier ZeroLemon shines. Both phones have sealed battery compartments, but the usual work-around is to build a giant battery into an even more giant phone case. So it is with ZeroLemon's latest offerings: enormous 8500mAh battery-cases for both devices.

The math works out to almost 3X battery life on a fully-charged case, plus the runtime of the phone's internal battery, though the electrical inefficiency of the external battery system probably means it won't last quite that long.

Music With Audio Feedback: You Can Now Listen To Spotify On Amazon Echo

Amazon Echo (her friends call here Alexa) has been steadily improving since it launched a little over a year ago. Starting today, this little electronic monolith has a new trick up its sleeve: it can now play music directly from Spotify.

Playing music on Echo isn't exactly new: owners can already stream from services like Amazon Music, Prime Music, iHeartRadio, Pandora, and TuneIn. On top of that, Echo has always been able to play audio from any Bluetooth-enabled device. However, official Spotify support gives users a lot more control over their listening experience than having to manually manage everything (a common first-world problem).

[Deal Alert] Newegg Offers A Free $25 Gift Card With The Purchase Of A Huawei Honor 5X

The Honor 5X is already a pretty fantastic deal at $200 for an unlocked phone (even if David's review was more or less "you get what you pay for"). But if you're looking to sweeten the deal even further, online retailer Newegg is offering an additional $25 via a store gift card with the purchase of the phone. The offer is available for a limited time, but it's valid on all three colors (black, white, gold) and combines with free shipping.

The gift card is added to your cart at the same time as the phone, and users can use the code themselves or give it away (if you have a friend who likes to build PCs, it would make a nice gift).

[He's Not Dead, Jim] Samsung Galaxy S II Gets Marshmallow Through CyanogenMod 13 Nightly

The Galaxy S II is an iconic device in Samsung's line-up. It had a big role in changing the public's perception of Samsung's brand and establishing it as a major smartphone player. But in our day and age, at a time when the S7 is about to be announced, the S II is getting long, really looooooooong in the tooth. It's a 5-year old device by now and its specs (dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 4.3" 480x800 display) can hardly be found in the lowest of the low-end Android phones. It does have 1GB of RAM and 16/32GB of storage though, which make it a potential candidate ripe for more modern Android ROMs.
