  2. Germany to let citizens store ID cards on smartphone BERLIN (AP) — Germany says its citizens will be able to use smartphones to store their government-issued ID cards and prove their identity online. The move is part of a broader effort to haul Germany’s decidedly analogue bureaucracy into the 21st century. The Interior Ministry said Wednesday that from this fall, citizens will be able to use the electronic ID stored in their smartphones together with a PIN number to prove they are who they claim to be when communicating with authorities or private businesse
  3. Xiaomi Launches Mi 11 Globally: Starting at 749€ Today Xiaomi is launching their new Mi 11 flagship for the global market, following their domestic launch of the phone in China almost 6 weeks ago. The Mi 11 is an interesting device as it really balances out its features as a affordable flagship device. The European prices for the new phone start at 749€, featuring the new Snapdragon 888 SoC, and what seems to be a top-of-the line 1440p 120Hz OLED display, all while featuring a high-end 108MP camera module, though the phone compromises on its other cameras.
  4.

  5. They're coming at you very quickly. Foldables phones over here, new iPhones over there. I went to Best Buy to seek guidance. When October comes, you can get jittery. You stare at your phone and wonder whether it's the best expression of who you are. Or, perhaps, of what you've become. Cynically, smartphones makers know this. So they bombard you with their latest wares at your most vulnerable time. Why, I look down at my black, somewhat scratched iPhone XR and I see a reflection of a dark, damaged soul. And then there was
  6. Chinese selfie app and smartphone maker Meitu has announced that Xiaomi is effectively taking over its hardware business. Future phones will carry the Meitu brand, but Xiaomi will be responsible for design, R&D, and sales, while Meitu will still be involved in camera software. Basically, it’s a safe bet that Xiaomi’s Mi Home stores across the world will start carrying a bunch of wild selfie-focused cameraphones in the near future. As for why this deal is taking place, Meitu says its “mission is ‘to inspire more people to express their beauty,’ and the board believes that entering into

  8. Internet service provider Frontier Communications will pay $1,000 to a candidate of its choosing that's willing to trade in their smartphone for a flip phone for a full week.

The contest comes as concerns over the amount of time we're spending on our phones have increased, resulting in new features from Apple and Google designed to manage screen time. Could you live without your iPhone for a week? If you're willing to find out, you could end up winning $1,000.
  9. HONG KONG (Reuters) - Huawei will delay the launch of its much-touted foldable 5G Mate X smartphone by three months, the latest setback for the company that was slapped with U.S. sanctions last month.

It was originally slated
  10. Smartphone users are usually torn between the two choices — Android or iOS. Their dominance is such that other competing OS like Windows, BlackBerry OS, or Symbian have almost been abandoned. Those who don’t want either of them can opt for Pine64’s Linux phone dubbed the PinePhone, which offers good hardware and software at an affordable rate of $149. Pine64 had announced the phone a few months ago and now the company is ready with the prototypes and plans to ship development kits in Q1 2019. The PinePhone is expected to
  11. Apple and Samsung are not outliers with respect to declining smartphone sales. Global mobile device shipments were down 4.9% year over year in the fourth quarter of 2018, according to a new report from IDC. The slide in sales is now a bona fide trend with five consecutive quarters of declines on record, and the outlook for 2019 doesn’t look any better. “The challenging holiday quarter closes out the worst year ever for smartphone shipments,” the research firm wrote. During the full year of 2018, global smartphone shipments declined 4.1% to 1.4 billion units total.
  12. Fierce 5G competition and poor sales see company retreat from once booming sector TOKYO -- Sony is cutting up to half its smartphone workforce as sales shrink in the face of stiff global competition. The job cuts come as the global smartphone industry suffers one of the severest downturns of recent years. Worldwide shipments are expected to decline for the third straight year in 2019 to about 1.3 billion units, according to U.S. research company IDC. Sony's share of the smartphone market has fallen sharply in recent years -- from more tha
  13. Wireless charging can be tricky to understand—these devices make it a no-brainer. Enlarge Valentina Palladino Wireless charging has a long way to go before it replaces wired charging, but the technology has advanced dramatically in the past few years. Everyone with the newest smartphones, wearables, and other gadgets can get behind the idea—simply place your device on a charging pad or stand and let it sit. Within a few minutes, you'll have more battery power than you did before, and you didn't have to fuss with wires or cables to

Sony's next flagship smartphone, a followup to the Xperia 1 II released earlier this year, is the Xperia 5 II.

The Xperia 5 II is named similarly to Sony's camera line, so it'
  15. It was only several months ago when the Redmi K20 series was introduced, featuring a pop-up selfie camera as one of its main selling points. Today, Xiaomi teased the successor to that phone with a notable twist to its front camera design that resembles that of Samsung's Galaxy S10+. The Redmi K30 will be sporting a display with a hole-punch cutout for the selfie snapper. It will also feature two lenses similar to the Galaxy S10+ front camera. Xiaomi's General Manager Lu Weibing shared a photo of the Redmi K30 during the debut of the Redmi 8 series in China after its launch in India

  17. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Well, that's not entirely fair if you are a firm believer in the future of blockchain technology and crypto currencies in the end user space. That was the spotlight feature on the original HTC Exodus 1 and the same is true for the newly announced Exodus 1s. The phone doubles as a hardware ledger and this time around has a few other crypto tricks up its sleeve. But more on that in a bit. First thins first, however, the hardware itself. There really is no way around it, the 1s has pretty terrible hardware for 2019. You are looking at a Sna
  18. Hackers accessed some OnePlus customer data through a vulnerability in the vendor's website. Smartphone maker OnePlus disclosed today a security breach that impacted users of its online store.

  22. How long does it take to charge your smartphone? A couple of hours? Wouldn’t it be awesome if it only took around 30 seconds? StoreDot’s prototype battery can do just that. The Israeli startup has several challenges to overcome before the new battery and charger are ready for mass production. The size needs to be reduced, for one thing: StoreDot is currently much larger than even a third-party expanded battery pack for the Galaxy S4. Capacity is also an issue: StoreDot can’t compete with even the OEM GS4 battery in its current form. The charger needs some tweaking, too. It’s currently the size
  23. Due to circumstances beyond my control I needed a smartphone and now have one made by LG. There are things I need help with and searched for places at which to ask, and those I found are not producing any helpful info at all for me.... I did post in the Android App thread here once or twice, but with ~87 pages in it and stuff being added all the time posts just get buring in that single thread. (Makes me wonder if this place would do well to add an area just for Android-related threads...?) Would the helpful folks here suggest where I might make Android queries that may bring some helpful repl

Well, I think it’s every person’s wish that their phone’s battery lasts longer so that they don’t need to charge it frequently and they can play games, watch movies, surf internet etc. without any trouble. But what is the main reason behind this quick drainage of battery? If your battery power is good but still it doesn’t last longer then the problem might not be with the battery but with your phone and the apps installed in it. Sometimes a lot of processes keep running in the background wh
