OPPO offers preview to ColorOS 2.1.0i, based on Android 5.0

OPPO users are relatively happy with the hardware they get on the Chinese company’s phones. The OPPO Find 7 and Find 7a are decidedly popular because they feature robust specs at a relatively low price point. It is usually the software that drives the users nuts, with OPPO seemingly very slow to update its proprietary ColorOS up to Android Lollipop standards. Well, they may have taken their sweet time about it, but it seems that day is drawing near as OPPO unveils ColorOS 2.1.0i.

Sony Lavender image leaked ahead of launch

Upleaks, the anonymous and famous tech leaker, has some good news for us. It's not confirmed yet but Sony is believed to be introducing a new selfie-focused smartphone ideal for the well...selfie addicts. Details are scarce but we have an idea this could be called the Sony Lavender or the E55 Series. Based on the name alone, we're guessing the phone will be lavender or anything with a purplish shade.

Raccoon APK downloader gets a new release, UI tweaks

The Google Play Store, as much as some will hate to admit it, makes it easier for Android users to search for apps and install them – because that’s what it’s for. Some people may argue to a point on which apps appear first on any given search string, but truth be told, the Google Play Store does what it should be doing. But for people who need to download the individual installers – APK files – for one reason or another, there’s Raccoon APK downloader, and it’s getting a new release.

Xiaomi to open Mi digital store to other markets for limited time on May 19

If you've always wanted to try out some Xiaomi products, but they don't sell directly to your country, then you'll be happy to know that they'll be opening up a beta store to test out the waters. But you'll only be happy if you live in France, Germany, the UK and the US, as these are the places where they will be trying out their Mi Store on May 19, but with limited stock availability only.

Average attention span of humans dropped from 12 to 8 seconds

The image above of a man missing out the giant whale because he's glued to his smartphone is a perfect example that some humans prefer tapping and watching on their screens than just enjoying the real thing. Of course, there could be plenty of explanation for this. Maybe he got an emergency call or an important email he really needs to reply to. But still, this image is very ironic and I think it will only get worse as technology progresses.

The astronomic increase in computer processing power, in images

It’s the year 2015, and were you a citizen from the 1980s transported to the here and now, you’d probably be expecting floating/flying cars, teleportation, magnetic trains, and Marty McFly’s hoverboard. Sadly, we are only at the verge of discovering these things. But that is not to say that the progress of technology has been slow. If you know how much raw processing power you have in your hands in a mid-range smartphone, you would probably be surprised at what those level meant a few decades back.

Sony India to launch a new smartphone, probably the Xperia Z4

Sony India has sent out invites to their local media for a May 26 event where they are set to launch a new smartphone in their region. But as to which smartphone it will be is still up for speculation. But based on the look of the official invite to the press conference, it might have something to do with the device's water resistance, so speculation is rife that it will be the Xperia M4 Aqua, which had its official announcement at the MWC earlier this year.

Google Buy Button coming soon to your search results

Have you ever wished that when you digitally search for something, for example, a geeky shirt or a hard to find book, that you'd be able to buy it directly from the results page, rather than having to click on so many things before you can actually make a purchase? No? Well, Google is about to make that come true as they will reportedly be introducing the Buy Button to your search result page in the very near future.

Jurassic World: The Game out now for Android

Well, it didn’t take that long. We were thinking we would have to wait until the movie was released before Jurassic World: The Game was released for Android (it was released on iOS initially). It turns out we were wrong, and that is a good thing, because the dinosaur battle game that we’ve been waiting for is now available for downloading via the Google Play Store.
