Samsung Aims to Improve Galaxy S6 Battery Life in Latest Update

How has your battery life been on your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge? As you know, we considered each to have “average” battery life at best in our review. I don’t think we are alone in describing it as that either.

OnePlus Two Will Arrive in Q3 of This Year, Cheaper Model Too

The follow-up to the OnePlus One will arrive in Q3, at least according to a report out of Bloomberg. During a short feature on the Chinese start-up, casual references to the OnePlus Two (yes, that’s the name) launching in the third quarter along with a cheaper model that will arrive before the end of the year, were dropped. That of course comes on the heels of random rumors suggesting a new phone from OnePlus may not arrive until some time in 2016. How silly do those sound now?  (more…)
