Moto X Style’s camera is right behind the Galaxy S6 Edge, according to DxOMark

Post by +Jimmy Westenberg 
Camera quality has plagued the Moto X line ever since the first device launched back in 2013, and Motorola has since been trying to fix that problem. While the 2014 Moto X's camera wasn't anything to write home about, Motorola fans have been patiently waiting for the company to up its camera quality. Thankfully, the newly-announced Motorola Moto X Style might finally be the camera Moto fans have been waiting for. The new flagship device has al...

Google will now let you send third-party instant messages through Google voice commands

Post by +Jimmy Westenberg 
One of the most convenient ways to send a quick text or Hangouts message with your Android device is by using Google voice commands. By simply saying the phrase 'Okay Google, send a text to...', you can send messages through SMS, Hangouts and even email without even picking up your device. Even though this functionality is much overdue, Google is now bringing support for a few third-party applications to Google voice commands. At the start, po...

How to get a Location address in an Android app

Learn how to use the Geocoder class to get location address details, using either the address name, or the latitude/longitude values.

By +Obaro Ogbo 
In previous tutorials, we have discussed how to get location data, as well as using location data to implement a simple device location tracking system using the ThingSpeak API. For this tutorial, we are going to use the Geocoder class to translate a given address into its latitude and longitude values (geocoding), and also translate a latitude and longitude value into an address (reverse geocoding). Preparation From Wikipedia, Geocoding uses a...

Moto X Style vs OnePlus 2: which is the true flagship killer?

Post by +Andrew Grush 
Today Motorola unveiled the Moto X Style, the company’s new high-end offering designed to compete against both mainstream rivals like Samsung and LG, as well as the number of growing Chinese OEMs that are pushing down pricing while offering premium experiences. In many ways, the Moto X Style hits all the right boxes. One of the latest Qualcomm processing packages? QHD? Compelling extras like waterproofing and quick charging? Check, check, and che...

Wireless charging will soon make its way to metal phones, thanks to Qualcomm

Post by +Jimmy Westenberg 
More and more smartphones are launching with all-metal bodies, and that's for good reason. Many people prefer a smartphone made of metal over, let's say, one that's made of glass or plastic. This unfortunately poses quite the problem when it comes to charging your device wirelessly, as the metal chassis gets in the way of current wireless charging methods. But if a recent announcement from Qualcomm proves true, we might soon be able to charge met...

What features are the OnePlus 2 missing?

Post by +Nirave Gondhia 
After months of leaks and rumours, Chinese manufacturer OnePlus unveiled its new OnePlus 2 flagship smartphone just last night, and from our first impressions, the handset certainly has a lot of impressive things to shout about. From 4GB RAM on the premium 64GB model to a Snapdragon 810 processor and 13MP camera equipped with f/2.0 aperture, 1.3µm pixel size, optical image stabilisation and laser autofocus, there's a lot to like about the OnePlus...
