The BLU R1 HD is a cheap Android phone, made even cheaper by its release as an Amazon Prime Exclusive device. You pay $50 (or $60 for the 16GB/2GB RAM version) for the phone instead of its original $100 price tag, but you get Amazon's apps pre-installed and its ads on the lockscreen. It's not that bad really: David has been trying to live with it for a month and hasn't faced many issues beside the "slowening", ie.

youtube-comments-new-ui

Open your eyes wide because a miracle is about to happen. You know how YouTube has long had some comment tools on its website to change the sorting order and like/dislike comments? Well, the Android app doesn't have any of that. What you get is just a regular list of comments with the option to add your opinion to the mix and... nothing else really.

However, that might be about to change. Some users are seeing a new comment interface on the YouTube Android app with the cool features from the website.

play store

We may all lament the state of app discoverability in the Play Store at times (it still sucks you can't do advanced searching), but at least Google is trying to improve the experience. Today it's added eight new categories and renamed two others, meaning apps will be better sorted into the relevant category, which will hopefully result in users being able to find what they're looking for quicker and easier.

New Play Store categories:

  • Art & Design
  • Auto & Vehicles
  • Beauty
  • Dating
  • Events
  • Food & Drink
  • House & Home
  • Parenting

Some of these are pretty interesting, such as Auto & Vehicles and Dating - both of these have seen massive uptake from developers and users in recent months, with apps like Uber, Lyft, Tinder, and OkCupid having over 200 million downloads between them.

The OnePlus 3 is a solid device, but it's not exactly bug free. Since release, owners have reported a number of vexing issues to OP in the hope of getting them fixed. Today, there's an OTA (OxygenOS 3.2.2) rolling out that addresses several of those bugs. You probably won't get it right away, but it's coming.

Here's the changelog posted by OnePlus for the OxygenOS 3.2.2 update.

  • Improved notification management in doze.

lg-gpad-gpe-security-update

Apparently, Artem has an LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition, or as we lovingly call it LGGPGPE, sitting somewhere on a desk or a drawer. I'm not sure what he uses it for, but I know that he keeps receiving updates for the monthly security patches on it.

So how old is the LGGPGPE? It was released in December of 2013, so it's technically not 3 years old just yet. But it had a short-lived stay on the Play Store: it was removed in June of 2014, which means that it's been out of the Store for more than 2 years now.

2016-07-26 10_56_51-ShopBlackBerry Online Store - DTEK50 by BlackBerry Bundle

BlackBerry is sticking with this Android thing despite sales for its first phone not being particularly stellar. Now, there's a second BlackBerry Android phone, the DTEK50. Unlike the PRIV, this one is mid-range and costs just $299. Also unlike the PRIV, it doesn't look like BlackBerry designed or built this one. The DTEK50 is a rebranded Alcatel Idol 4.

Externally, the DTEK50 is identical to the Idol 4, save for a custom back panel with BlackBerry branding.

motoz001

Motorola is trying something new—it's like a whole new company with new owners, new phones, and a new approach to making money on said phones. The Moto Z and Z Force (currently only available as Verizon exclusives) are "modular" phones with a series of snap-on rear panel accessories. They're also very thin and lacking a headphone jack. There are certainly reasons to be skeptical of these devices, but they're also very interesting in an industry that has had trouble innovating beyond the standard black slab.

spam_header

There are about a half-dozen countries that have enacted some form of official "do not call" registry and many others that have signed in laws to prevent various types of spammy behavior from running rampant over the telephone system. Unfortunately, little to nothing is done to enforce these laws and the penalties usually aren't steep enough to discourage bad behavior. Google is taking matters into its own hands and giving users a way to fight back.
