Gionee has announced a new smartphone called the M6S Plus. One of its biggest features is definitely the large battery with a 6,020 mAh capacity, which should be good for at least two days of use.

The M6S Plus comes in two storage options. You can get your hands on a 64 GB version of the device or opt for the 256 GB model if you need more space.

Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) support has been added for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, only a matter of days after the devices’ official release.

TWRP is an open-source recovery tool which provides users with an intuitive interface to assist with backup and recovery, dating wiping, and, crucially, installing firmware. This latter feature is what allows users who want to run different software on their devices, so TWRP support is a big deal for those in the modding and customization community.

How pervasive is that in every day life? Well, 45 percent of WeChat users pay for things in stores using the messaging app’s wallet feature because they don’t even carry cash. That’s according to a new survey out today from Penguin Intelligence. Not bothering to carry cash is the...
