Xiaomi’s Android handsets resemble Windows Phone’s Start screen with Lite Mode
Xiaomi’s Android phones run using the manufacturer’s MIUI UI. For Xiaomi customers who find Android to be confusing, there is the Lite Mode that offers a “simplified Home screen and menus.” If the Lite Mode look seems familiar, that is because it somewhat resembles the Windows Phone Start screen. To enable Lite Mode on your Xiaomi device, go to Settings > Lite Mode. Tap the Lite Mode switch to turn it on, and agree to reboot the phone.

The Lite Mode allows you to add an app to the main screen, a feature available with the Start screen on Windows Phone. You can change the font size and …

College students face cellphone addiction

Published in the Journal of Behavioral Addictions, Baylor’s report says that female students are spending ten hours a day staring at their handsets, two hours more than male students use their phones. The researcher behind …

Do you see those little dots and “resuming” when switching apps in Windows Phone often? It’s not you or your phone
Windows Phone has come a long way in a very short period of time. One area it has gained the most ground is in the so called “app gap.” While the gap has narrowed, the challenge still remains to bring the quality of those apps up to par with their Android and iOS counterparts.

Taking the general performance of some of those apps aside for the moment, one of the hindrances that existed was speed with which these apps would operate within the operating environment itself.

If you have ever owned or used a Windows Phone, one of the common occurrences was some applications would have …

CheapShark is a Windows Phone and Android app that helps you look for cheap PC games

Leaks-based Moto G2 teaser and new photos sum up the major upgrades of Motorola’s next budget phone

Word on the street is that Motorola’s September 4th event will see the announcement of several important devices that the now Lenovo-owned company will use to reinforce its positions.

Now, it’s fair to say that the Moto G2 has received decent amounts of attention from leakers and the media on the whole. This almost surely has to do with its predecessor’s success, which wasn’t surprising considering it is still likely one of …

HTC One (M8) and Nokia Lumia 930 tackle the Ice Bucket Challenge
Just the other day, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was drenched with ice water as part of the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. At the same time, Samsung’s flagship model challenged the HTC One (M8) and the Nokia Lumia 930 to take the challenge. But the Galaxy S5 has a big advantage here. That device has an IP 67 certification, meaning that it can withstand being submerged in up to 3.2 feet of water for as long as 30 minutes.

The HTC One (M8) has an IPx3 certification. That means it offers no protection from dust, but does offer protection from water sprayed up to 60 degrees at 10l per minute, pressure …

LG provides a thorough, albeit robotic, rundown of its clever Bluetooth Tone Infinim headset accessory
While it does not have the volume of Samsung, LG hardly operates in the shadow of its larger conglomerate cousin when it comes to features and accessories.

Recently, LG introduced its Tone Infinim (HBS900) headphones, with Harman/Kardon audio technology, as the perfect accessory to the flagship LG G3 smartphone. Given the depth of features on the phone and these headphones, that is arguably a correct assessment.

So, LG decided to go in-depth with everything its new Tone Infinim Bluetooth headphones can do. After all, if you are going to part with $150 of your hard earned cash to …

Google swung its mighty ban-hammer in order to clean up Swing Copters clone mess
Swing Copters, the newest game from the maker of insanely-hard, viral game Flappy Bird, was released on Android and iOS yesterday. However, along with its release, the Play Store was flooded with hundreds of clones trying to leech off some of the original’s glory. The problem was that these copies pushed Swing Copters so far back down that it was much more probable that users would download a clone, instead of the real thing. In fact, it happened to some of us here in the office, as the first search result did indeed display a game listed as Swing Copters, only to have its name revealed after download …
