If This is the Galaxy S8, What do You Think?

This week marked the beginning of the casemaker battle over who could first post supposed realistic renders of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8 without getting sued into oblivion by Samsung while also trying to catch that early money train and build upon SEO rankings. Mobilefun is the first out of the gate, as far as we can tell, with a bunch of listings on their accessory site for Galaxy S8 cases. We’ve included a bunch of their photos of cases with supposed Galaxy S8s inside here, but understand that these are by no means final or official on any level.  (more…)

Wednesday Poll: Which OEM’s H1 Flagship Are You Most Looking Forward to?

It’s a new year, meaning we have new flagship devices for the first half of 2017 to look forward to! If I’m not mistaken, we should be seeing the next big launches from Samsung, LG, and HTC rather soon, so we’d like to gauge which company’s flagship you’re most looking forward to.

For Samsung, the Galaxy S8 will be the first major launch since the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, so if you ask me, they’ve got to bring the heat. The LG G6 is expected to ditch the G5’s modularity, so that has me interested. And, as you may have seen, I recently posted up what I’d like to see from HTC, but it’s looking like they aren’t listening to me (courage aka headphone jack).

We also have devices from Moto (mid-2017), Sony (who knows exactly when), and other OEM (Huawei, Honor, ZTE, etc.) launches to look forward to. It should be a really exciting first half of 2017 for Android fans.

What's the Next Flagship You're Most Excited For?

That doesn’t mean the phone isn’t still banned from planes, but airlines no longer have to tell you every time you step foot on one of their planes.  (more…)

DEAL: Samsung Fast Wireless Charging Stand is Just $24.99

Samsung’s Fast Wireless Charging Stand is probably the best accessory it has released in recent years.

If you don’t already own one, you should take advantage of the Flash Steals deal today that prices the device at just $24.99(more…)
