oneplus-logo-1

Shortly after the announcement of OnePlus 3T phone, OnePlus has confirmed that it will no longer be selling the smartphone in US and Europe. With this move OnePlus is pushing their customers to buy the newly announced OnePlus 3T. Sadly for the manufacturer, the long lead times for both the US and Europe means they could miss out on the Holiday Season 2016 sales. The OnePlus 3T comes with a somewhat larger battery (3,400mAh), extra storage option (128GB), an updated CPU (Qualcomm Snapdragon 821), and higher-resolution (16 MP) selfie-camera. The 64GB storage variant of the device costs $439, while the 128GB one carries a $479

Samsung Electronics to Announce Galaxy S7 in January 2016

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ mobile phones.

According to the Korean publication ET News, Samsung plans to change the product introduction cadence for their Galaxy S flagship lineup. According to sources in the supply chain, ET News claims the announcement of Samsung Galaxy S7 will come in January 2016, probably during the CES trade show in Las Vegas. The product announcement should follow with a complete turnaround in the company’s smartphone sector, by splitting Samsung’s models into Premium and Sub Premium, followed by Mainstream and Entry Level.

The much awaited OnePlus One smartphone has hit yet another snag on its way to being delivered to those that could actually get ahold of one. The $299 smartphone has it all, and for a reasonable price, but the catch is that they’re limiting production so that they don’t bankrupt themselves, or their parent company OPPO in the process. And since the device is running CyanogenMod as the OS, there are some things that need to be ironed out before the device ships to consumers as a ‘shipping’ final device. One of those things is that CyanogenMod recently had a major security update as a

Can We Trust OnePlus, Who is Really Behind Them? OPPO?

OPPO's OnePlus Logo

OnePlus has a new phone that the entire internet has been talking about, which happens to share the same name as HTC’s flagship phone, the One. So, we have the OnePlus One and the HTC One, okay, a little problematic, but nothing too serious since the two brand names usually come before the model name. OnePlus have been billing themselves as an upstart smartphone company, some of which were formerly with OPPO.

The current OnePlus One (still not too hot about that name) will be available in two colors and models. Specifically, the white model selling for $299 with 16GB of storage space (and no memory card slot) and the black version selling for $349 with 64GB of storage space. This price is all the more ridiculous when
