I’m old enough to remember the first Sony Playstation, and
truthfully, I freak out a bit when people tell me their first console
was the PS2 or PS3.
Those people actually consider the PS1 “retro”,
which means I’m just old. But those people also missed out on some truly
incredible Sony games (for that day and age, anyway).
included the PS1 versions Gran Turismo 2, Tekken 3, Metal Gear Solid,
Of course those gamers who can list the PS2 and PS3 and
their first console are quickly aging too. After all, it’s entirely
likely that most people in today’s generation will have their first
video game experience on a smartphone. Perhaps that’s why it’s so cool
to hear the news that Sony has created a gaming division specifically
designed to bring its Playstation titles to iOS and Android.
Smartphone will soon be able to experience the “retro” games many of us
reading this grew up with. Here’s everything you need to know.
Taking a look back at seven days of news and headlines across the world of Android, this week’s Android Circuit includes third-party destructive reviews of the Galaxy S8, Samsung’s problems with Bixby, why the Note 8 will have to fight the S8, a curved screen for the new Pixel smartphones, the return of the Note 7, Android Pay’s steady improvements, WileyFox’s move back to stock Android, and asking if Microsoft should start shipping an Android handset.
The arrest of Samsung Electronics’ vice chairman Lee Jae-yong on
Friday in South Korea may not have a direct impact on the company’s
high-profile electronics business, including its smartphones unit,
according to analysts. Samsung announced in 2012 the promotion of
the executive, also known as Jay. Y. Lee, to his current formal position
at Samsung Electronics. But he is largely seen as the de-facto leader
of the Samsung Group, running the business on behalf of his ailing
father, Samsung Chairman Lee Kun-Hee. He was arrested on charges
of bribery as part of an alleged corruption scandal that led to the
impeachment of South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye.
Google says it's now time to marry two computing realms: the web and virtual reality. Its
latest version of the Chrome browser includes a technology called
WebVR, which lets programmers create websites that present the
computer-generated 3D worlds of virtual reality. If you're into VR, you
might appreciate the promise WebVR holds for expanding what you can do
with a device like a Google Daydream View or a Facebook Oculus Rift VR headset.
because, in principle at least, WebVR makes it easier for developers to
create a single VR experience that'll work across many VR headsets
instead of having to create a separate version for each device. It's an
extension of how a single website can span your laptop, Android phone or
Google is hoping the release of Android Wear 2.0
will push more people toward smartwatches, and one of the key pillars
of that strategy is Android Pay. Ahead of the launch, it has (perhaps
accidentally) released some screenshots on the Play Store
that show how it'll work and look. At supported retailers with an
Android Pay or contactless logo, you simply hold your NFC-equipped
Android Wear watch next to the terminal until it's approved. It'll then
detail the latest transaction in a list, and you can scroll to see your
In other words, you'll get the ability to pay like a boss from your
wrist instead of digging around for your phone, a feature Apple Watch
and Samsung Gear S3 Watch users have had for a while now. However,
there's a catch -- your smartwatch must have an NFC chip, and no current
models do, so current owners are out of luck. Thanks to a leak,
however, we know that LG and Google are set to release two models, the
LG Watch Spor…
The Yoga A12 could be better than an entry-level PC in the right circumstances.
The tablet market is increasingly skewing toward laptop replacements, but what if you want a replacement for a low-cost laptop? Lenovo thinks it has the answer. It's introducing the Yoga A12, a 12.2-inch tablet that's really a budget convertible laptop for the Android crowd.
Think of it as a lower-priced but larger alternative to the Yoga Book. You won't find the earlier model's pen input or Windows 10 option, but you'll still get a very portable design (it's 0.21 inches thick at its slimmest point) that can fold into a slate when you're watching Netflix, or a laptop when you need to get work done. The trick, as with the Yoga Book, is a flat touch-sensitive keyboard that eliminates some of the usual physical bulk. We found the Book's keyboard hard to get used to, but it might be easier on the A12's larger, more comfortable surface
Nokia may finally be coming back, this time with a vengeance. The two phones leaked of the Finnish Manufacturer making a mega comeback, include a smaller 5.2-inch display model and a larger 5.5-inch model.
Both have a 2K display and will come with the Z-Launcher System UI based on the latest .0 Nougat (Android N). Specs wise the two phones will be powered by Snapdragon 820 chipset an IP68 Waterproof and Dustproof protected all metal body, so goodbye polycarbonate. The Previous leak of Nokia seems to fall into place here.
Nokia Prototype feature phone
The bigger sibling of the two is reportedly sporting a 22 MP camera and will launch at a price of US $ 500 ( Rs. 34000) . The company will launch the phones at the end of the year post the official Android Nougat reveal in two months.
By that time smartphones will be working on the next Qualcomm Snapdragon 823/821. In effect Nokia will be late as usual to the party, however this time with a more meaningful product.

Historically, I’ve had a begrudging respect for Samsung flagships. I can objectively acknowledge the company makes very good, extremely popular phones, but I’ve never felt that the Korean manufacturer got everything right in a Galaxy S device. I’m not the easiest person to please, admittedly, but I’m finding myself irresistibly drawn to the Galaxy S7 Edge like never before. Don’t miss: all the biggest highlights of MWC 2016
With every previous Galaxy S phone I’ve always found a few too many decisions I didn’t like, missing features I desperately wanted or gimmicky add-ons I saw no use in. Despite the way the world fawned over the Galaxy S6 Edge, even it didn’t tickle my fancy because I thought it was largely unnecessary. The edge was new but it had no real purpose. If anything, I thought the S6 was the better option.
The S6 Edge felt awkward with that sharp edge on the back, had a largely useless edge display, had dropped three popular Samsung features found in the Galaxy S5 – microSD…

It seems that BlackBerry is not alone in wanting to revive the QWERTY keyboard for mobile phones, such as the Norwegian company One2One Touch has just unveiled its own physical keyboard accessories for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, but not the plus model, called the slim type.
The slim type connects up to the galaxy S6 by NFC instead of Bluetooth connection, they were included in the rule with a wireless keyboard accessory, and it does not require its own battery pack either. The keyboard must have its own app from the save game, but after that you are good to go. There are also keyboard shortcuts for E-mail, web and search, together with a dedicated emoji button.
The keyboard is integrated into a slim case that simply clips on the back of your smartphone and is manufactured from a comfortable textile surface. But this also means that there is nothing to prop up the screen so that you probably only with it when the phone flat. I personally think that it is an elegant looking des…

Samsung Galaxy S6 is the phone of the year 2015,
elected by them - our readers. In what can only be described as a victory, the Korean flagship garnered a third of all the votes and its position was at no time in each game.
We observed a close race for the second place but, and despite the Sony Xperia Z5's Early Advantage, the Apple iPhone 6s picked up some speed later on and eventually won over. At the end they were the two split of slightly over 1%.
The LG G4 placed fourth at a considerable distance behind the podium. 1 of 10 voters took him as your phone of the year, but this is not a bad result when you think about it. We had expected more from the Microsoft Lumia 950 and its 8% will come as a bit of a surprise, because the iconic Lumia brand and its cult.
