Do updates come to Amazon Prime Exclusive phones at the same time as other models?

The short answer: It depends.

No one could blame you for looking into Amazon’s Prime Exclusive range of phones. They’re the same phones you’ve probably been eyeing anyway, with a reduced price in exchange for putting up with a few pre-installed Amazon apps — don’t worry, the vast majority of them can be either uninstalled or disabled.

Aside from the bundled Amazon services, there’s no difference in the software experience of a Prime Exclusive phone compared to  [Read More…]

Adding to the surprise is that this is data for the entire quarter (April, May, June) where the OnePlus 6 was  [Read More…]

When is the best time to sell your phone?

The sooner, the better.

We’re quickly approaching that time of year where smartphone manufacturers all drop their top-of-the-line flagships almost simultaneously — we’re eagerly awaiting Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 announcement on August 9th, along with what we suspect is the Moto Z3 the week prior, and a number of other phones from the Pixel 3 to the LG V40.

If you’re the type to buy the latest flagship as soon as it drops, you’re probably going to want  [Read More…]

Apex Launcher updated for the first time in a year, and users are unhappy

Back in the day, the three biggest launcher choices were Launcher Pro, Apex Launcher, and Nova Launcher. Those were the days where we would extensively modify our phones and Android was ugly and lacked features. Good times.

Not too long ago Apex Launcher made a comeback with some updates. But we haven’t seen any updates in a year, until today. Apex Launcher 4.0 has been released, and the changelog simply says “The long-awaited major update is finally here!”

Users are  [Read More…]
