Here Come the April Fools’ Jokes a Day Early – Google and Samsung are First (Updated)

Well, get ready for it – April Fools’ 2015 has already started. Google is in on the act as usual, with a Pac-Man version of Google Maps that went live moments ago. Samsung is playing as well today, with the introduction of the Galaxy BLADE edge. There will be more, trust me. Some will be good, others, maybe not so much. Either way, this day(s) is always a lot of fun. We’ll try to keep track of some of the best as we see them.  (more…)

AT&T HTC One M7 Should Get Lollipop Today

According to HTC’s Mo Versi, the One M7 on AT&T should see its Lollipop as early as today. In a Tweet sent yesterday afternoon, Versi noted that they had received “technical approval” on the update and that it would start March 31.

We are still waiting for AT&T to post details of the update, but once that happens, we will update this post.

Let us know if you see it!  (more…)

Samsung Galaxy S6 Unboxing

We now have the Samsung Galaxy S6 in our possession. I’m not sure I can put into words how ready for this moment I am. You see, we feel a little screwed by Samsung for not hosting a US satellite press event during MWC for this phone and its brother, like they have done every year for every phone as far back as I can remember, so this is, as odd as this sounds, the first time I have placed my hands on one. The excitement truly cannot be contained.  (more…)

Reminder: Only Two Days Left for These $25 Bluetooth Ear Buds

Bluetooth ear buds are one of those consumer electronics that don’t typically carry reasonable prices, especially when you start talking about the best of the best. The good ones are well over $100 and the cheap ones lack features. But these are still an accessory we tend to recommend for those who workout or for those who hate the idea of wires getting in the way of activities on a regular basis.

For those interested, the DL Deals shop currently has a pair of Wireless Bluetooth Cloud Buds for just $24.99. The regular price typically hovers around $100, so you are looking at a sizable discount here. Are these the best Bluetooth ear buds on the market? No. Are they affordable and fully featured? Yep. These would be a great first venture in the world of active Bluetooth headphones.

The Cloud Buds feature a lightweight, wireless construction, noise-canceling outer shell, built-in mic and remote, and multiple sizes of gel ear buds to ensure proper fit.

The $25 will go up after Wednesday, so be sure to get in on this today.

Droid Life Q&A Sessions: Volume 28

We are back for Volume 28 of the DL Q&A Sessions. This time, we have the HTC One M9 in-house, and should have the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in our possession quite soon, so if you have any questions about any of these new flagships, now is the time to ask. Please note, you can expect unboxing and impression videos as soon as they come in. But besides new phones, there is plenty of other stuff going on in the world of Android.

The Q&A Sessions are a time when anyone from our lovely, opinionated community can ask the DL staff whatever may be on their mind. This can range from Android-related topics, sports, food, or whatever else you may want to know. We are pretty open in terms of what we will share, so don’t be shy.

On Friday, we will compile a list of our favorite questions, then let the team have at them. Until then, shoot your questions below in the comments section.  (more…)
