Popular File Manager ES File Explorer Gets A Material Design UI Update In Version 4.0

Posted: 02 Aug 2015 10:30 AM PDT

imageI have files. You have files. Everyone has files. It kind of goes along with the whole computing thing. Occasionally you'll need to manage those files, and to do so you could do a lot worse than ES File Explorer. This reliable little app has been a popular option (over 100 million downloads!) thanks to a very long feature list and commendable stability. Today it looks a little better thanks to an upgrade to version 4.0.

So Maybe No MicroSD On The Note 5?

Posted: 02 Aug 2015 06:19 AM PDT

Samsung microSD

It has expandable storage.  It doesn't.  It has expandable storage.  It doesn't.

Rumours have been going back and forth for a while now and according to the latest rumour, the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 will not feature a microSD card slot.  The latest report comes courtesy of everyone's favourite leakster @evleaks so it definitely carries some weight.

In addition to noting the lack of microSD card slot, @evleaks also confirmed a variety of other specs.  His list of specs include a 5.66″ 2560×1140 display, Exynos 7420 procesor, 4GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, 16MP camera and 5MP front facing camera.  All of these specs are in line with previous reports so there's no reason to think that these are off.

Despite the stellar specs, the lack of expandable storage will undoubtedly upset some customers but then again, things have been flip flopping so much so who knows what will happen.  August 13 is coming up quick so all the question marks will be answered soon.

ZTE Axon Pro now available for purchase at $449.98 unlocked

Posted: 01 Aug 2015 05:26 PM PDT

The term "flagship killer" has been floating around a lot recently. Recent device announcements like the OnePlus 2 and the Moto X Style might be making you rethink how you'll fund and where you'll buy your next device. High-end specs and performance at a more reasonable mid $300 to mid $400 prices makes bringing your own device and going contract-free so much easier to swallow. We know, the companies like OnePlus and Motorola area probably cutting edges somewhere, but everyone is getting so good and making these mobile devices. Do we really need all the bells and whistles?

ZTE officially announced the Axon Pro a couple of weeks ago. We knew it would be made available to purchase around this time. It is available now with its sleek metallic body in Phthalo Blue, Ion Gold, and Chromium Silver colors from zteusa.com as well as Amazon (blue only), Newegg (gold out of stock), and eBay. Every Axon Pro purchase comes with JBL E13 Premium Headphones as well as a 2-year warranty and premium protection plan with a $79.99 deductible. No insurance premiums or monthly fees. Sweet, sweet deal.

ZTE Axon Pro

What about specs? What is this thing packing for only $449.98?

Dimensions: 6.06″ x 2.9″ x 0.37″
Weight: 6.1 0z.
Display: 5.5″ CGS WQHD with Gorilla Glass 3 (534 ppi)
CPU: Octa-Core 2.0 GHz Qualcomm Snapdraggon 810
Memory: 4GB RAM, 32GB ROM
Battery: 3000mAH with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0
Rear camera: Dual lens (13MP + 2MP) with dual LED flash, 4K 30fps video capture
Front camera: 8MP
Frequencies: LTE B2/B4/B5/B12/B17/B29/B30
LTE IR B7/B3/B1/B13
USM/HSPA 850/1700/1900/2100 MHz 
GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
CA Band 2/4 + Band 17
Android version: 5.1.1

The specs are impressive. The device looks great. I think this would be a super fun phone to review. I've reviewed ZTE phones in the past and I've always been impressed with their phone design and premium feel at non-premium prices.

How do you feel about the ZTE Axon Pro? Can it compete with the OnePlus 2 and the Moto X Style on the unlocked phone market? By the looks of it, I think it has a shot. Especially with that 2-year warranty and protection plan. I'm so impressed by a company that can stand behind their product. Let us know your thoughts by commenting below!
