The Aquos Mini is one of Sharp’s most impressive devices, featuring the razor thin bezels that their Aquos phones have come to be known for.

There’s been a bit of a delay for the much-awaited Android 5.0 update for the HTC One M7, but if you’re tired of waiting, you can grab the update on the XDA Forums, courtesy of LlabTooFeR.
Last week, a report was published that stated Samsung made an offer to purchase BlackBerry. The obvious reason for Samsung to go after BlackBerry would be for patents with the intent to bolster enterprise and security platform Knox. Both companies, however, moved very quickly to deny the validity of the report. Now, the leader of the mobile division at Samsung has gotten in front of the rumors to state that the company does not intend to purchase BlackBerry.
People are always using their smartphones and that makes charging them quite the inconvenience. Many people connect their smartphones (and other mobile devices) to chargers overnight because of the idling. Wake-up and you are at 100% to start the day. Some, though, are curious as to whether or not overnight charging has an effect on the electricity bill.
Today is a good day for mobile gamers as the tenth Humble Bundle Mobile is now live. This one includes Buddy & Me, Lyne, and Doodle Kingdom. You can pay whatever you want and get all these games or if you pay more than the average of $3.82 (at the time of this post), you will get three bonus games. They are Sorcery! 2, King of Dragon Pass, and OTTTD. And don’t forget that they will add a couple of more games at a later date that you will get too.
Per past practice you can choose where your money goes. That can be one or any combination of Humble Bundle, the developers, the Extra Life / Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, or the World Land Trust.

Last week, we got a little idea about the 2nd generation Moto E through a FCC filing, but today a UK e-retailer has provided more clues.
Argos mistakenly posted the information, but thankfully it was spotted before they pulled it. The new Moto E will have a 4.3-inch qHD display. Don’t mistake that with a QHD display. A qHD display is a paltry resolution of 960 x 540. It will be powered by a quad-core CPU, likely a Snapdragon 210 or 410, 8 GB of internal storage, microSD slot for expanded storage, LTE, and a 5 MP rear camera. It will measure 129.9×66.8 and will be 12.3mm thick. Pricing is GBP 110 or $167.
Indian smartphone manufacturer Lava has just launched its latest budget-friendly smartphone, the ‘Iris Alfa’, and rather surprisingly it packs quite a lot with regards to specifications for the money.

We’ve known for a while now that Google is redesigning the File Manager application within Chrome OS and today some leaked details have appeared online.
