SystemPanel 2 now in public beta, mostly a visual makeover

Posted: 08 Jan 2017 03:10 PM PST

For years, NextApp's SystemPanel has been a popular way to quickly monitor almost all aspects of an Android device. The app supports monitoring running applications, hardware information, network activity, and more. But like many pro tools for Android (looking at you, Titanium Backup), the interface is a bit dated.

SystemPanel 2 is currently in public beta, and just like the earlier version, shows a wealth of information about your device.

Google's 'Trusted Voice' feature keeps turning off for some users

Posted: 08 Jan 2017 11:20 AM PST

The OK Google command is great, but I think we'd all agree that it can be a little... temperamental at times. Our Glorious Leader Artem recently took to Google+ to air his grievances about Trusted Voice, the feature that recognizes your voice and unlocks your phone accordingly.

What happens when Trusted Voice is off.

Specifically, Artem was complaining about Trusted Voice automatically, and seemingly randomly, turning itself off. This is annoying because it means when asking Google Assistant, or Voice Search on non-Pixel phones, the phone has to be manually unlocked before it answers.

Nokia 6 makes its official debut with Android Nougat and aluminum unibody design

Posted: 07 Jan 2017 09:27 PM PST

Nokia revealed last year that it'd be teaming up with HMD Global to re-enter the smartphone game, with HMD building the devices and plastering the Nokia name on them. And now the first smartphone to come out of that partnership has been revealed.

The Nokia 6 made its official debut today. The Android Nougat smartphone touts an aluminum unibody design, and HMD touts that it takes 55 minutes to machine a Nokia 6 from a block of 6000 series aluminum.

Included with the Nokia 6 is a 5.5-inch 1920×1080 display with 2.5D Gorilla Glass and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, as well as a 16-megapixel camera with an f/2.0 aperture and phase detection autofocus around back. Inside the aluminum unibody shell is a Snapdragon 430 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of built-in storage.

Rounding out the Nokia 6's feature set are dual amplifiers, which HMD touts as offering a 6dB louder sound than a regular amp for "higher voice, deeper bass, and unmatched clarity."

The Nokia 6 will launch exclusively at JD.com in China in early 2017 for 1699 CNY ($246 USD).

For the price, the Nokia 6 looks like a pretty competitive smartphone. It combines the well-known Nokia name with premium materials and a spec list that's mostly solid. We'll have to wait until the Nokia 6's launch to see how it performs, but so far, it looks like a pretty strong return to smartphones for the Nokia name.
