  • Xiaomi unveils the Mi Max 2 with a massive 5300mAh battery

    The Mi Max 2 delivers two-day battery life, will be able to charge other phones.

    At a media event in Beijing, Xiaomi unveiled the Mi Max 2. The phone retains the 6.44-inch Full HD display, and the highlight this time around is the 5300mAh battery, 450mAh more than what was included in its predecessor. Xiaomi is claiming a battery life of two days, touting over 18 hours of video playback, 21 hours of GPS navigation, and 57 hours of talktime.

  • Traveling to India? Here’s how you can pick up a local SIM card

    A local SIM card is essential to staying connected in India.

    India’s handset market is seeing a meteoric rise thanks to an influx of affordable devices and wide availability of 4G data, and with the country becoming a mobile-first market, having a local SIM card is mandatory for accessing the plethora of digital services available.

    A local number comes in handy not just for staying connected, but also for undertaking basic tasks like payments and money transfers. To curb corruption, Prime Minister Narendra Modi demonetized high-value currency notes at the end of the last year, and the country still doesn’t have adequate cash reserves. The move has led to a drastic rise in digital wallet services like Paytm, but to register and use the service, you need a local SIM card.

    Thankfully, the Indian government is making it easier for foreign travelers visiting the country by providing a pre-activated SIM card on arrival. The SIM card is issued by state-run BSNL, and comes with 50MB of …

  • Android O feature spotlight: The proxiomity sensor can turn off ambient display

    Ambient display on the Android O developer preview is doing some odd things right now. It’s showing a minimal and less useful UI for some people, while others see something more akin to the old version. Whatever is going on there, we do know of one small (but useful) change to ambient display in O—covering the proximity sensor now puts the phone back to sleep.

    In Nougat and earlier, ambient display won’t kick on if the proximity sensor is covered.

  • Huawei P10 and P10 Plus hitting Canada on June 6

    The Huawei P10 and P10 Plus will come to Canada just in time for the summer.

    Huawei’s P series will be sold at a North American carrier for the first time ever starting June 6, as Canadian providers are set to sell the P10 and P10 Plus.

    The company’s newest flagship phones do a lot of things right — and, unfortunately, one thing very wrong — but they stand up well to the competition from Samsung, LG and others. And with no HTC flagship launching in Canada this summer, the P10 and P10 Plus should stand in nicely.

    The smaller P10 will be sold at Bell, Videotron, Fido and Rogers in black. Rogers, which has an excellent existing relationship with Huawei, will sell the P10 in both gold and black, and will exclusively stock the larger P10 Plus in black, with the blue variants of both phones coming out later this summer, again as Rogers exclusives.

    Huawei P10 and P10 Plus specs

    Both phones are remarkably similar, with the P10 Plus notching a slightly bigger 5.5-inch QHD p…

  • Google app v7.3 beta prepares for podcast subscriptions, data saver for Now Cards, and more [APK Teardown]

    google

    Version 7.3 of the Google app began rolling out to users in the beta channel earlier today. There are a few odd little changes to be found poking around in the UI, like a new menu shortcut on many of the Assistant settings screens that leads to the Activity Controls settings, but it’s all pretty innocuous. We’ll surely see more significant features going live as Google activates them remotely over the coming weeks™.
