The One Card Any Serious Phone Nerd Should Carry

‘Always be prepared‘ isn‘t just for the Boy Scouts anymore. Relying on your phone to do everything you need it to takes some forethought.

All about Android O‘s Notification Channels

Android 8 comes with the power to take control over your notification tray so you can sort out just what you want to see. One of the bigger changes and features coming with Android O is the new Notification Channels system.

Xiaomi Mi 6 review: A new beginning

If you‘re willing to look past the lack of a 3.5mm jack, the Mi 6 is a fantastic phone. Quick take: The Mi 6 gets a lot of things right - powerful hardware in the form of a Snapdragon 835, dual rear cameras with 2x optical zoom, and a gorgeous metal-and-glass design, all at a price that‘s nearly half that of the Galaxy S8. The phone isn‘t without its drawbacks: availability is limited to China, and there‘s no 3.5mm jac
