This week we look at:
- Jolla tab no more. Hardware is hard, yo. (http://www.androidcentral.com/only-540-additional-jolla-tablets-are-shipping-backers-rest-get-refunds)
- Yesterday the Honor 5X formally went on sale in the US for $199, a great phone for that price, but not without competition (http://www.engadget.com/2016/01/30/honor-5x-goes-on-sale-in-us/)
- Google’s Skybender, not a flying robot from Futurama, but a solar powered autonomous drone working on delivering 5G wireless broadband to places. (http://www.theverge.com/2016/1/29/10873676/google-project-skybender-drones-5g-internet)
- For better or for worse, the Galaxy S7 will look remarkably similar to the Galaxy S6 (http://www.theverge.com/2016/1/29/10872934/samsung-galaxy-s7-edge-photos)
- Blu Vivo XL, for $99? I’m not sure you can do better (http://www.androidpolice.com/2016/01/29/blu-vivo-xl-quick-review-breaking-the-boundaries-of-what-a-99-phone-should-be/)
- Feb. 21st is the rumoured announcement date for the Galaxy S7, take that for what you will.
- Xiaomi’s Redmi 3 gets reviewed by GSMArena, gets extremely positive review on pretty much everything (but mainly it’s insane battery), hot damn! (http://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_redmi_3-review-1368.php)
- Honor Holly 2 Plus, despite its weird name, it looks to be a nice phone, lets hope its supported better than the OG Holly (http://www.gsmarena.com/huawei_honor_holly_2_plus_unveiled_with_13mp_camera_4000mah_battery-news-16316.php)
- Marshmallow on the Moto X Play completely transformed the phone for the better. (http://www.androidcentral.com/five-months-moto-x-plays-marshmallow-update-makes-it-phone-worth-considering?utm_medium=slider&utm_campaign=navigation&utm_source=ac)
