Google has finally revealed the official name for its upcoming Android in conjunction with the solar eclipse in the United States. Almost 4 years ago, Google had partnered with a well-known chocolate brand, KitKat, for Android 4.4. Now they are doing something similar by announcing Oreo as the latest sweet treat for Android 8.0.
Nexus 5X users rejoice! In Google‘s latest maintenance update for those on the Android Nougat beta program, the search engine giant bundled a new feature and it’s got something to do with your fingerprint scanner.
When the Nexus 6P came out, the question on everyone’s lips was: “Is it as good as the other flagships?”. Aptly named the 6P, it seems that 2015 was the year of the six-branded smartphone, as the Nexus 6P, together with the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Apple iPhone 6s Plus, carved a “holy-trinity” out of the smartphone crop.
With these three priced at the top of the food chain as no-nonsense, no-compromise, best-phablets-money-can-buy devices, consumers everywhere were torn. The line separating these three devices were so thin that no matter which device you chose, you would end up with a great phablet nonetheless.
But, c’mon, we have to crown a winner. There is only one sport at the top of that podium, and today we fill it.
Bam! Mobile World Congress 2016 passed by like in just a blink of the eye and now we’re suffering from post-congress withdrawals. Not without good reason, by the way. Three (big) smartphone makers released their flagships for this year including the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. On a less than positive note, it’s rather sad that we won’t be getting the standard Galaxy S7 in Malaysia.
Although we pretty much knew everything about the two smartphones prior to the South Korean manufacturer taking the MWC floor, we didn’t know how good the camera on the follow-up to the Galaxy S6 flagships would be.
We were eager to find out so we pit the edgy Samsung number against other formidable smartphone cameras.

As we wait for Android 6.0 Marshmallow to roll out to current devices, the folks at Google is now giving everyone a peek of its upcoming Android N. It is available now and even non-developers can give it a try. The name isn’t confirmed yet but we have a hunch that it could be called Nutella.
ASUS recently launched the world’s thinnest 3x optical zoom smartphone, the ZenFone Zoom, here in Malaysia and the first question on everyone’s mind is: Whats the big deal? Now the word “optical zoom” may not be a term everyone recognises. Some of you might be thinking that your current smartphones can zoom jolly well, so why would you bother about this device?

AnTuTu, a company responsible for the development of the AnTuTu benchmark app which we (along with many other reviewers) use when reviewing phones, publishes their annual Performance Ranking Report ranking the 10 best smartphones of that particular year.
Before v6.0 of the app, the report only consisted of Android phones. With this new version, though, 2015’s report is the first cross-platform ranking report and my goodness was it an interesting one. While we weren’t that surprised that the iPhone 6s Plus was #1 on their list, we were shocked at how MUCH further it was from the competition. Let me give you a hint: 132k.
