OnePlus OneWatch Reportedly Leaked in Photo of Screenshot, Features Premium Design

A photographed screenshot taken from the OnePlus website, leaked by BGR India, shows off what could be the startup company’s next project – a smartwatch. Given the name OneWatch, it is still unclear whether this device is even real, let alone powered by Android Wear or a CyanogenMod build of something else.

What is apparently known are the materials the device is made of, as BGR India was also able to scoop up design sketches of the hardware, which show off an OLED display, “Saphire” glass, Qi wireless charging, configurable crown button on the side, leather bands, curved battery, and a titanium exterior.

If it is real, it looks kinda hot. (more…)

Bullsh*t Rumor of the Day: The Moto 360 is Now Made of Plastic!

“The first thing that you’ll notice is that it’s really made with beautiful materials, designed to look and feel like a traditional wrist watch. You’ve got stainless steel on the case here, and then genuine leather in the band.”

That’s how Motorola’s Cathay Bi describes the Moto 360 in the opening 30 seconds of a video filmed to showcase their upcoming smartwatch during Google I/O. Why am I bringing that point up again today? Because the tech industry is bored today and passing around a rumor from a Korean news outlet that is suggesting Motorola is ditching the metal and going with plastic in the Moto 360. And also because a number of readers pinged us with concern.  (more…)

T-Mobile Adds Another 1.5 Million Customers, Takes VoLTE Nationwide, Plans to Expand Coverage Outside of Metro Areas

T-Mobile CEO John Legere took to his company’s newsroom today to talk about how his crew is “firing on all cylinders.” In other words, T-Mobile is still killin’ it for the most part.

The wireless carrier added another 1.5 million new customers in the last quarter, making this their 5th consecutive quarter with at least 1 million or more net adds. In the past 15 months, T-Mobile has brought in a total of 7.6 million new customers, which is well, a lot. In fact, according to T-Mo’s numbers, they topped all of the other three major carriers combined in terms of postpaid phone adds. Not bad, right?  (more…)

A massive update is now available for Wunderlist, titled Wunderlist 3, which the company claims to be the biggest update the app has ever received. With Wunderlist 3, users can create fantastic lists, but list-making isn’t the most important aspect of the app.

Top 5 Android Apps: July 2014

Another month down, another list of the best Android apps available is ready.

For the month of July, you can tell that we reconnected with an obsession over wallpaper apps, since three made it onto the list.

Top 5 Android Games: July 2014

The end of July as come, so it’s time to look at the best Android games that crossed our desks. This month, we saw the release of a few great Indie games, meaning that the titles didn’t have major backers funding their development. In a few cases, these games end up being some of the best, but of course, there is no doubt that big time publishers can push out great work too, as we saw with Gameloft in the release of Modern Combat 5: Blackout.

A couple of the games we list this month feature addictive characteristics, meaning it is easy to die in the game, but even easier to press “replay.” In addictive games, you want to try again, hoping to do better than you did the last round. Other games for this month include a puzzler, platformer, and a FPS title.
