      von Derrek Lee am September 17, 2021 um 9:12 pm

      Samsung could be going "mini" with the Galaxy S22. What you need to know Samsung is tipped to launch the Galaxy S22 with a smaller display than previous-generation flagships. The Galaxy S22 could feature a 6.06-inch display, which is smaller than the Galaxy S10. Samsung is also rumored to decrease the battery capacity of its next flagship. With Samsung's new foldables out and in consumers' hands, the focus has started to shift on what the company could release next. The latest rumor points to an interesting design choice for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22, which could please many users depending on their tastes. According to Ice Universe, Samsung's next flagship could launch with a 6.06-inch display. For comparison, that's smaller than the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S20, which both feature 6.2-inch displays, and even a hair smaller than the Galaxy S10 display which measures in at 6.1-inches. In fact, the S22 display size would fall between the S9 and S10. 6.06— Ice universe (@Un...

      von Hayato Huseman am September 17, 2021 um 7:00 pm

      Car repairs can be costly (duh!), and the ominous glow of that check engine light could mean you have myriad issues that need immediate attention. However, it could also be a simple fix that you could do yourself. So why take it to the dealer or a mechanic without knowing what the problem is first? Some places will charge you substantially just for the scan. Instead, skip the headache and grab a home ODB2 scanner, download the app, and become your own second opinion.

      von Derrek Lee am September 17, 2021 um 6:39 pm

      Windows 11 isn't quite ready to bring Android to the party. What you need to know A preview of the Amazon Appstore has been spotted on Windows 11. The preview doesn't appear to be ready for public use yet and is still being tested internally. Android app support won't be available when Windows 11 rolls out in early October. Android app support may be delayed for Windows 11, but there are healthy signs that the feature is still well on the way thanks to the latest Microsoft Store listing for the Amazon Appstore. The listing was spotted by leaker WalkingCat, who provided a link to the listing for the Amazon Appstore preview.

    • Best Dell Chromebooks 2021
      von Ara Wagoner am September 17, 2021 um 6:00 pm

      While Lenovo, Acer, and ASUS may rule the roost among the best Chromebooks, Dell does offer a small collection of Chromebooks for consumers, businesses, and schools. Dell's Chrome OS portfolio isn't as pronounced as other manufacturers, but if Dell is your manufacturer of choice, these are the best Dell Chromebooks available today, whether you need a top-of-the-line, business-grade laptop or a travel-friendly lightweight laptop for vacations and weekends on the couch. Best Dell Chromebook: Dell Chromebook 3100 2-in-1 This is the oldest Chromebook in Dell's current lineup, but it's still the best one for most Chromebook buyers. How is that possible, you ask? The Dell Chromebook 3100 2-in-1 is portable, long-lasting, and affordably priced. While not bleeding edge, Chrome OS runs quite well on the 3100's hardware, and it's one of the few 11.6-inch Chromebooks to offer an 8GB RAM option. 8GB of RAM is absolutely an asset worth upgrading for, as Chrome uses a fair amount of RAM, and ...

      von Babu Mohan am September 17, 2021 um 5:33 pm

      The leaked renders suggest the tablet will look a lot like its predecessor. What you need to know The first high-res renders of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Tab A8 2021 have leaked. The tablet is tipped to feature a 10.4-inch FHD+ display, an 8MP rear camera, and a quad-speaker setup. It is expected to be announced sometime before the end of the year. Samsung could soon launch a new Android tablet to replace last year's Galaxy Tab A7 10.4, which is still among the best cheap Android tablets available. CAD-based renders and a few key specs of the device have now surfaced, courtesy of reliable leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (@OnLeaks) and 91Mobiles. As seen in the renders below, the Galaxy Tab A8 doesn't appear to have an all-new design. Like its predecessor, the tablet seems to feature a metal chassis and relatively thick bezels around the display. We can also see that the device has a single camera on the back. The volume rocker buttons are placed on the right side, alongside a finge...

    • Google's permissions auto-reset feature is coming to older Android phones
      von Babu Mohan am September 17, 2021 um 5:00 pm

      The feature will automatically reset the runtime permissions of unused apps a few weeks after it is enabled on a device. What you need to know Google is expanding the permissions auto-reset feature to older devices running Android 6.0 or higher.

Until now, it has been limited to the best Android phones running the latest version of Google's mobile operating system. The feature not only eliminates the need for users to keep up with the permissions that they've previously granted to apps, but also ensures that unused apps do ...

    • The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro aren't far off now! Here's everything we know
      von Joe Maring am September 17, 2021 um 4:30 pm

      Counting down the days until Google opens up Pixel 6 preorders. Not since the original Pixel launch have we seen this level of hype for a new Google phone. The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will dramatically improve on the mid-range Pixel 5, offering true flagship specs. And thanks to its striking two-toned design, Google-made Tensor chipset, exclusive Android 12 features like Dynamic colors for the new Material You UI, and improved camera sensors, the 2021 Pixels are set to make a big splash. Google gave us the first official peek at the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro on August 2 after months of rumors, giving us our first proper glimpse of the phone outside of leaks. Since then, Google has kept silent about the phone; but recent rumors and leaks suggest we could see the final announcement soon, which will unveil the release date, price, and full specs. With the iPhone 13 set to arrive in late September, we're primed to see an all-out brawl between Apple and Google in 2021's closing mo...

    • Protect your Oculus Quest 2 from sweat and grime with these face covers
      von Michael L Hicks am September 17, 2021 um 4:00 pm

      The Oculus Quest 2's absorbent foam pads will become sweat-stained and dirtier the longer you use them. Worse, the foam causes skin irritation, to the point that Oculus recalled the Quest 2 and is offering a replacement silicone cover. While you can get that for free, alternative third-party covers made of leather, silicone, or other more comfortable materials are easier to clean and have better venting to prevent lens fogging. Starting with our personal favorite, the KIWI Design Facial Interface, here are the best Quest 2 face covers when it comes to coziness and cleanliness. Best overall: KIWI Design Facial Interface One of the biggest Quest 2 issues is with excess lens fogging. The basic facial interface traps your heat and sweat inside the headset, which inevitably fogs up your POV — especially when playing active games or exercise apps. Thankfully, several third-party replacement covers include vents to allow more air circulation, which daily VR users will find incredibly ...

    • Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra review: Fixed focus
      von Hayato Huseman am September 17, 2021 um 3:30 pm

      Massive year-over-year improvements and a noteworthy new addition. Update, September 2021: Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra review, long-term review The Galaxy S series has been a staple of the Android ecosystem for over a decade now, but the Ultra line has only been around for a year. The Galaxy S20 Ultra was poised as the best Samsung phone money could buy, with a gargantuan screen and the company's most versatile camera system ever — all at a record-high price of $1,400. This year's sequel brings the price back down to Earth while improving Samsung's Space Zoom technology and serves as a launching point for Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 888 platform in the U.S. It's a phone for enthusiasts and power users alike, correcting some of the shortcomings of its predecessor and bringing a lot of great new features to the mix — including one that may signal the end of another premium division of Samsung's lineup.

    • Everything you need to know about Marvel's Spider-Man 2 for PS5
      von Jennifer Locke am September 17, 2021 um 2:30 pm

      A super-sized Spidey adventure unlike any other from Insomniac. Insomniac surprised everybody when it announced it was developing a Spider-Man game several years ago. The series has had a tumultuous video game past. Up until Insomniac released its version in 2018, most superhero video games were panned, the major exception being the Batman Arkham franchise. Marvel's Spider-Man bucked that trend. Insomniac crafted a thrilling tale with a ton of heart, humor, and excellent gameplay. It looks to follow it up with Marvel's Spider-Man 2 in 2023. During Sony's PlayStation Showcase 2021, Insomniac not only unveiled its upcoming Marvel's Wolverine game but also confirmed that Spider-Man 2 is in the works, starring Peter Parker and Miles Morales, the latter of which received his own spin-off game that immediately became one of the best PS5 games. Spider-Man 2 looks to up the ante by adding Venom to the mix, but will he ultimately be a friend or foe? We'll need to wait to find out. Until th...
