Epic Games is launching its own store, will come to Android in 2019

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

Tim Sweeney, the founder of Epic Games, has just announced the upcoming launch of the Epic Games store. At first it will only contain a few select titles for PC and Mac, but eventually, it will open up to include Android games. This is all set to take place sometime in 2019, but the big news is that developers will get to keep 88% of the revenue. Compared to Google's, Apple's, and Steam's 30% cut, this is going to be a big selling point.

HTC reveals the U12 Life: A slightly boring mid-range phone that won’t be coming to the US

Thursday, August 30th, 2018

HTC is continuing its recent attempts to sell phones in the so-called "premium mid-range" market with the newly announced U12 Life. Specs are about what you'd expect for incremental improvement over last year's U11 Life, with a 6" 1080p-equivalent 2:1 display, new dual camera configuration, and Google Pixel-reminiscent two-tone rear design. Unlike last year's model, though, this one won't be coming to the US.

Specs

SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 636.
Display 6" 1080p equivalent (1080x2160) 18:9.

Galaxy Note9 is official: Bigger battery, powered S Pen, and Fortnite for $1,000

Thursday, August 9th, 2018

In keeping with Samsung's yearly tradition, the latest entry in the Note series has been formally revealed. The new Note9, like the S9 before it, is an incremental advancement over its predecessor rather than an outright revolution in design. Packing the latest Snapdragon 845 and a sizeably increased 4,000mAh battery, Samsung's new Note phone includes all the best features we have come to expect from a 2018 flagship, with none of the notch. In keeping with the swelling specifications, the price has also increased to a round $1,000.

Honor Note 10 unveiled with 6.95″ screen and ‘GPU Turbo’ tech

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

Early last month, Huawei announced two phones with its 'GPU Turbo' technology: the Honor Play and Honor 9i. Unveiled a few hours ago, the Honor Note10 is the latest device with this new gaming tech, and it packs a 6.95" display and some decent specs for, as is common with Chinese phones, an affordable price.

Specs

Screen 6.95" 2220x1080 AMOLED
Dimensions 177 x 85 x 7.65mm, 230g
Processor Kirin 970, octa-core
RAM 6GB

Camera (rear) 24MP + 16MP, f/1.8
Camera (front) 13MP, f/2.0
Battery 5,000mAh

We're guessing it's not a coincidence that this giant phone is branded as a 'Note.' In fact, Huawei has even decided to adopt a certain Korean company's branding scheme by pushing 'Note10' together.

Wednesday, June 6th, 2018

Samsung isn't the only company that still sells phones with styluses; LG has been doing the same, albeit with much less expensive devices, for some time. The company has just announced its latest stylus-equipped phone, the Q Stylus, and it'll come in three (very poorly-named) models.

LG Q Stylus / Q Stylus/ Q Stylusα

Specs

First things first: some of these variants are horribly named.

Florence is an emotional game about relationships by Monument Valley’s lead designer, and now it’s out for Android

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

When it landed on iOS last month, Annapurna Interactive's Florence was a hit, almost immediately making the App Store's Editors' Choice list. The game is simple, a so-called "interactive storyboard" that follows our protagonist Florence as her first relationship breaks up the mundane tedium of her life. Now those of us on greener (#A4C639) pastures can enjoy the game as well, and it's just been released for Android on the Play Store

Aesthetically, the game's art style resembles a comic or graphic novel, accompanied by an orchestrated soundtrack.
