[Deal Alert] Buy A Brand Spanking New Unlocked AT&T LG G Flex 2 On eBay For $250 ($40 Less Than It Was Last Time)

Pretty good, fairly decent, and not bad are all phrases that can be used to describe the LG G Flex 2. The younger, more curvaceous cousin of the LG G3 has respectable specs and a body curved like a banana that you either think is awesome or pointless and stupid. Speaking of stupid, the price when it launched was an insane $709 on AT$T (that ain't no typo) and apparently everyone agreed that price was obscene because they keep popping up brand new on ebay for a whole lot less.

This time you can pick one up for $250. It's the silver 32GB model with a 13MP camera, a 5.5 inch 1080x1920 display, and a Snapdragon 810 processor (I told you it was a hot deal).

We got our best look yet at the Huawei Nexus phone (codename Angler) earlier today, and now we've got a few more pics from the same source. This time the phone is in a protective case that obscures many of the features, but there's one thing we can see plain as day—a USB Type-C port. It's happening.

Snapdragon 820 Leak Details Quad-Core Hydra CPU And Adreno 530 GPU

You are probably familiar with the issues surrounding the Snapdragon 810 by now, but a new chip is right around the corner that could get Qualcomm back on track. I speak of course of the fabled Snapdragon 820 (MSM8996). Details of this chip have allegedly been leaked in China, and while we can't know for sure that they're accurate, the slides sure look legit.

Editorial: Snapdragon Sorrows - Has Qualcomm Begun A Long, Slow Fall From The Top?

Back in late July, the Qualcomm Corporation - employer of over 30,000 individuals at the time - began the process of telling about 15% of those people (eg, over 4,000 gainfully-employed human beings) they were no longer needed. This was after already cutting another 1500 jobs in late 2014.

The company's stock is currently trading near 2-year lows, and while obviously still a very robust company, Qualcomm can't keep putting in these kinds of numbers if it's going to maintain its position at the tippy-top of the smartphone chipset market.


Qualcomm (QCOM - NASDAQ) stock is down over 10% year-to-date. It is down over 20% from its peak, reached in early 2014.

[Update: Layoffs Confirmed As Part Of Cost-Cutting Plan] Qualcomm Could Lay Off More Than 10% Of Its 30,000 Employees In Its Second-Quarter Earnings Announcement

It's not easy being a chip and component maker in the smartphone industry and trying to turn a profit when competitors are driving the prices down to a point where an entire phone can cost somewhere around $50. It's even harder when the high-end market is being governed by a few players, the major one of whom decides to "dump" your chips and use their own for its flagship. That's Qualcomm's conundrum right now. The company, which has been a mainstay on the spec sheet of a grand majority of the Android phones we talk about here on Android Police, is hitting a rough patch — not enough to sound the alarm sirens, but enough to jeopardize the employment of thousands of its workforce.

Sony Xperia Z3+ Camera App Can Crash In Mere Seconds In Some Modes Due To Overheating

Sony's de facto flagship right now is the Xperia Z3+ (AKA the Xperia Z4 in some regions). It runs a Snapdragon 810 processor, which has gained a reputation for running hot. Sony's camera software isn't doing anything to prove that assumption wrong. Watch in the video below as the camera app crashes in a few seconds because of high temperatures.

The Sony Xperia Z4 Is Coming To Verizon As The Z4v This Summer

Okay, Sony. Can you just decide what you want to call this phone? Is it the Z4 like in Japan, or the Z3+ as in most other markets? I say this because the phone is coming to the US as the Xperia Z4v on Verizon. It will be out this summer with obnoxious Verizon branding and yes, a Snapdragon 810. It's not clear if Verizon will be posting warnings in its stores.

Sony Xperia Z4 Launches In Japan With Overheating Warning From Carrier NTT Docomo And Plenty Of User Complaints

Sony is in a strange place these days. It has been on a 6-8 month flagship update schedule for several years, which is surely hard to maintain. Now the Z4 is out in Japan and the Snapdragon 810 at its heart is reportedly getting very, very toasty. So much so that carrier NTT Docomo has warning signs in retail stores. Ouch.
