One of Google’s most controversial Gmail features is finally going away for regular consumers. The company announced today that, sometime later in 2017, it will stop scanning the content of emails sent to Gmail accounts for its online ad personalization efforts. Google did not give a specific time frame for when this feature will be turned off.

Of all the features that are included in the recently launched HTC U11, the one that stands out the most is Edge Sense. HTC installed sensors on the sides of its flagship phone that can activate a number of functions when the owner squeezes the case. Today, the company released a new video that shows some upcoming Edge Sense additions that will be included in a forthcoming update to the U11.

Holo, from developer 8i, is now available to download for free from the Google Play Store. It’s designed to use your smartphone camera to place full 3D moving images of people and animals into the real world. You can then take still pictures or videos of these AR characters, which blend seemlessly into their environments.

It’s nearing the end of June and that means that Fall device rumors are in full swing. While much of the world is wondering what Apple will be unveiling in their next iPhone device, us Android nerds are gushing over the possibilities present in Samsung’s latest Galaxy Note 8 flagship.
First reported by Evan Blass over at Venture Beat, it seems that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 may be making its way to store shelves at the surprisingly high cost of €1,000 — or roughly $1,119. Blass says that the company is readying to launch the device near the end of September, and that it will...
I’ve had the pleasure of spending the last week or so getting to know the new Nokia 3310, the company’s latest feature phone designed in the spirit of the much beloved original 3310 from the turn of the millennium. Originally I had planned to relive my nostalgia for my first mobile phones, the Siemens A55, Nokia 3410 and my beloved Sony Ericsson K750i. Unfortunately, I encountered a number of niggles, setbacks, and outright roadblocks that made spending a week with the device much more difficult that I’d first thought.
My experience ended up being a frustrating one, and as much as there is to like about the new Nokia 3310,...
The Honor 8 Pro was launched in Europe earlier this year, and the company’s flagship smartphone is coming soon to India. The Honor 8 Pro packs top-of-the-line specifications and looks every bit as brilliant as phones that cost a couple of hundred dollars more.
I got my hands on the Honor 8 Pro earlier today – a day after the OnePlus 5 launch in India – and since the former will be launched soon (as early as first week of July), it’s hard to not compare the two. The OnePlus 5 is a terrific smartphone, and the company has got a lot of fans and hype going for...
Cheap phones have long been in existence, but Verizon’s newest addition to its prepaid family is bringing a lot more to the table than most cheap phones. The Moto E4 not only dips below the $100 threshold, it’s currently coming in at just $69.99. That’s an incredible discount considering this is a new phone we’re talking about here, and while occasionally you get what you pay for, sometimes you get a whole lot more. If you thought going even cheaper than Moto’s other affordable handsets would mean you’d be missing out on all the fun, think again. While there’s an obvious price to be paid in the entry-level segment, the Moto E4 is pretty impressive.
The HTC U11 is a fantastic return to form for a company that failed to make a significant impact in the last few years with its other flagships. With an all new metal and glass construction, superb display, the latest and greatest processing package, a fantastic audio experience with both the external speakers and headphones, an impressive camera, and good battery life, the HTC U11 checks all the right boxes. Despite some tough competition in the flagship space, HTC finally has a worthy contender on offer with the U11.

We have some bad news for those of you who like to full control over Google Photos. The option of backing up photos and videos only when your smartphone is charging is no longer available in the settings. The search giant has removed it from the app without explaining exactly why to its users.
As you can imagine, a lot of users aren’t very happy about the change. Backing up photos and videos is an intensive task that takes its toll on the battery, especially if there’s a lot of content to move to the cloud at once. That’s why it was always recommended that users backup their data while the device was charging.
