After having a record-breaking Q2, Fitbit is back with two new devices, the Fitbit Flex 2 and the Fitbit Charge 2. Fitbit opted to have one model for the Charge 2 and it includes a heart rate monitor along with a connected GPS, support for smartphone notifications, sleep tracking and a large OLED display (it’s about four times bigger than the one on the Charge HR), interchangeable bands and up to 5 days of battery life.
Xiaomi has unveiled the successor to the Redmi Note 3 (which is only about six months old), with the aptly named Redmi Note 4 . The new phone still has a 5.5-inch 1080p display but now there’s 2.5D glass on the front and a metal unibody design with chamfered edges.
Google has announced that the final version of Android 7.0 Nougat is rolling out to Nexus devices and tablets, today. It is coming to the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, the General Mobile 4G (Android One) and the Pixel C.
HTC opted to play it safe this year with their flagship line. The HTC 10 still has a metal unibody design like in years past but its more refined that last year’s HTC One M9.
After using the HTC 10 for a few weeks, I wouldn’t say it’s the absolute best phone out there but it’s definitely a runner up to the smartphones that have released so far, in 2016.
Samsung has taken the wraps of their latest entry in their Note line with the Galaxy Note7. Samsung also announced an updated Gear VR headset and a release date and price for their Gear 360 Camera which was announced at MWC 2016.
There’s been devices in the past that would try and turn your Android smartphone into a laptop (Motorola Atrix anyone?) but that was back when Android smartphones were severely underpowered. But smartphones have come along way since then and they’re more powerful than ever.
Google has finally revealed the nickname for the upcoming version of its mobile operating system. Android N will now be Android Nougat.
LG decided to change things up this year by making their G5 more modular. They also decided to go with a more metallic design, rather than plastic and that makes the G5 have a more premium look.
After using the G5 for a few weeks, I wouldn’t say the phone is the best one out there but it is a great Android smartphone besides the new modular features.
