Last week we brought you news of a hot discount on the G-Boom Boombox to make the bass fans purr. If you’re looking to trade off a bit of that punch for something equally rugged, but which fits in your pocket, then you’re in luck. Today’s deal is the aptly-named Trakk Bullet Ultra Compact Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker. Both waterproof and shockproof, each unit is rigorously tested by firing  jets of water at it. If it can stand that, it’s more than equipped for your next camping trip or festival. Don’t let its size fool you. Unlike the Boombox (which you’d probably want to be carrying on your shoulder like a boss anyway) the Trakk Bullet couldn’t be more portable. At just 6 inches long and 8 ounces in weight, you can slip into your pocket at a moment’s notice. Don’t let it’s size fool you though. It will still give you a high quality sound, with surprisingly high volume and bass to boot. It even has an inbuilt mic, so while you’re spinning those tracks via Bluetooth, why not use it to make calls too? 4.8 out of 5 stars – Amazon Customer Reviews The Bullet usually sells for $70. It’s a bit cheaper at other online market like Amazon, where you can pick it up for $55. But at Tech deals, for a few days at least, it’s discounted to just $40! You can pick it up in three colors – Black, blue and red. So if you’re looking for a Bluetooth speaker which punches above it’s weight, grab this offer before it expires by hitting the button below!

You read that right! It seems the industry is all about throwing as many cameras into a phone as humanly possible. Gionee has announced the S10, which is looking like a great phone on paper, but does have one thing that stands out. Actually… it has four. The Gionee S10’s main feature is its four cameras – two in the back and two in the front. This Chinese manufacturer is not very popular in the West, but it has a reputation for going above and beyond industry standards. It’s also worth noting that at least a few companies have released Gionee phones under their own branding in western markets, with at least a few BLU phones being based around Gionee’s product line. They announced the M6S last April; that thing has a titanic 6,020 mAh battery! But are they doing this for the sake of being different or to really innovate? See also: Best Chinese Android phones 3 weeks ago Gionee claims one of the back cameras has an F/1.8 aperture, helping it achieve better low-light photography. Other advantages include wider angles, the ability to catch 3D effects, distance measurement and more. The phone’s other specs are also pretty good. The device comes with a Mediatek Helio P25 processor, 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage, a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 3,450 mAh battery, and Android 7.0 Nougat. As for the cameras, we are looking at a 16 MP and an 8 MP camera in the rear. The front houses a 20 MP camera and a secondary 8 MP one. Interested? Here’s the downside – you will likely have a hard time getting a hold of one, unless you live in China. It is now available in its home country for 2,599 Yuan, which is equivalent to about $380 USD.

Got yourself a brand new Google Jamboard? Probably not. The thing does cost $4,999, but some companies may find it pretty useful. Regardless, those who do happen to have one can now enjoy the official app, which Google has just released via the Play Store. What the app can do will depend on the type of device you are using. It can accomplish certain tasks when using a tablet, while using the application with a smartphone will turn your device into a glorified controller of sorts. Tablet users can create jams, as well as collaborate on them. It’s also possible to share, work together and insert content into jams. On the other hand, smartphone users can’t create new jams, but they can control what happens in the physical Jamboard. You can use the app to detect Jamboards around you, throw content at them and include sticky notes. Go ahead and download the Jamboard app now, but it will be pretty useless unless you have that $4,999 screen. Have any of our readers tried this thing? Hit the comments to let us know what you think of it. Download Jamboard

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (Bluetooth SIG) announced Bluetooth 5 during the summer of 2016 and then towards the end of that year the new specification was officially ratified and we started to see Bluetooth 5 appear in hardware, first in development boards and then in consumer devices, most notably the Galaxy S8. Last month I got hold of a couple of Bluetooth 5 enabled nRF52840 development boards from Nordic Semiconductor. Using these I was able to test the real world capabilities of Bluetooth 5 and also cut through some of the marketing hype about the new standard. Most notably I was able to clear up the huge confusion around the ideas that Bluetooth 5 offers 4 times the range and twice the speed. In fact it turns out that Bluetooth 5 does offer (almost) twice the throughput when the two communicating devices are close to each other, but towards the edge of the possible range I demonstrated that Bluetooth 5 has the same throughput as Bluetooth 4. At the same time I busted some of the myths about Bluetooth 5 offering 4 times the range. The way it has been presented is that the 4x range and the 2x throughput work hand-in-hand, whereas the truth is that the extra range is only available when using a special connection type built into Bluetooth 5, known as a CODED connection. These CODED connections offer a very low throughput, around 109Kbps, but with the advantage of greater range. Bottom line, forget any dreams of taking your Bluetooth 5 enabled speakers out into the yard while your smartphone is in your bedroom and still getting a good connection speed. For more details on all this you really should watch my video the truth about Bluetooth 5. After my testing with the development boards, I turned my attention […]

Yesterday, OnePlus announced that those who want to get their hands on the 3T have to move fast. The smartphone is running out of stock and won’t be available for purchase starting in June. However, it looks like the OnePlus 3T will only get discontinued in North America, Europe, and Hong Kong. The company has recently said that the smartphone will still be available in India until “later this year.” You’ll be able to get both the 64 GB and 128 GB versions of the device from all three official sales channels: OnePlus’ online store, Amazon India, and the OnePlus Experience Store in Bangalore. OnePlus will discontinue its flagship device because it’s gearing up to announce its successor. The OnePlus 5 is expected to be officially revealed sometime this summer, probably at the end of June or in July. See also: OnePlus teamed up with the creators of DxOMark for the OnePlus 5 camera 1 week ago The reason as to why the 3T will remain available in India probably has to do with the price. The OnePlus 5 is expected to be more expensive than its predecessor and the company wants to make sure it also has a more affordable option available for consumers. Price is one of the most important factors that influences consumers’ purchasing decisions in the country. OnePlus wants to make sure its sales in India don’t decrease because of the higher price tag of its upcoming flagship. It sounds like a good strategy on paper and will probably work, especially if the OnePlus 3T gets a price cut as soon as the new model is announced. Would you consider buying the OnePlus 5 if it will be more expensive than its predecessor? Share your thoughts with us in the comment section below.

Huawei has just announced the Nova 2 (below) and Nova 2 Plus (above) at an event in China. Huawei confirmed last week that the handsets would be unveiled soon, and now we’ve got all the details. Sequels to the original Nova and Nova Plus from 2016, the new devices once again come in metal unibodies with almost identical specs: the major differences between them lie in the display size and the battery, with the Plus model having the larger of both. While last year’s phones were something of a letdown in the camera department, it looks like Huawei has aimed to address this on the successors, providing dual 12 MP + 8 MP rear cameras and 20 MP selfie cameras on both devices. If nothing else, these phones should deliver in the photography department: check out the core specs below. Huawei Nova 2 specs Display: 5-inch, Full-HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) LTPS 2.5D display Processor: octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor with MaliT830-MP2 GPU Memory: 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage space, expandable up to 128 GB via microSD Cameras: 12 MP + 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, 1.25μm pixel size, PFAF, f/1.8 aperture. 20 MP front-facing camera Battery: 2,950 mAh battery SIM: Hybrid Dual SIM (nano + nano/microSD) Software: Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.1 Sound: AK4376A Hi-Fi audio chip, 3D surround sound, 3.5 mm headphone jack: Fingerprint sensor: Yes Dimensions: 142.2 x 68.9 x 6.9 mm Weight: 143 g Connectivity: 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS / GLONASS, USB Type-C Huawei Nova 2 Plus specs Display: 5.5-inch, Full-HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) LTPS 2.5D display Processor: octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor with MaliT830-MP2 GPU Memory: 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage space, expandable up to 128 GB via microSD Cameras: […]

LG has gotten itself into some legal trouble because of the bootloop issues Nexus 5X users have been experiencing. Fortunately for the company, one of the lawsuits has now been dropped. Chimicles & Tikellis LLP, the law firm that took LG to court, has filed a notice of voluntary dismissal of the case at the beginning of the month. The law firm claims that it dropped the case because LG has decided to extend the warranty for some customers, is willing to repair affected devices and offer refunds in certain cases. See also: Android 7.1.2 adds pull-down notification fingerprint gesture to Nexus 5X February 2, 2017 However, it is worth pointing out that Chimicles & Tikellis LLP isn’t the only law firm that took LG to court. Girard Gibbs LLP is also suing the company over the Nexus 5X bootloop issue and, at least for now, the case is still open. LG just might ink the same deal with the law firm as it did with Chimicles & Tikellis LLP, although this hasn’t been confirmed yet. Read: What’s going on with LG and those bootloops? Do you own a Nexus 5X? Have you experienced any problems with the smartphone? Let us know by posting a comment down below.
