New York City Transit to start accepting NFC payments over the next few years

The MTA (Metropolitan Transit Authority) Committee has announced a new contract for the New York City Transit system to receive a technological update. This $573 million deal would hire the same company who developed the London Underground and London Commute payment system to adopt a similar payment system in 500 subway turnstiles and 600 city busses starting late-2018.

The new payment system would allow riders to pay the flat-rate fare with a contactless card, or NFC mobile payment service like Apple Pay, Android Pay or Samsung Pay. The full rollout of the new payment system is slated to… (Source)


White Google Pixel 2 sees shipping delays

Another year, another Google phone shipping fiasco. The original Pixel and Pixel XL were almost impossible to find in stock for months after their launch, and while the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL don’t seem to be having issues on the same order of magnitude (at least not with regard to shipping), there still are some hiccups here and there.

Case in point – the Clearly White Pixel 2. This color version of the smaller handset is going to see delays in shipping that will be over a month in some cases. For certain people who pre-ordered this model and got an initial shipping estimate of… (Source)

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 review

Full-view, full screen, bezel-less, tri-bezel-less, FullView, FullVision, Infinity Display – whatever you and your favourite manufacturer decides to call it, the new trend is clear – bezels are so 2016! In the build-up to the flexible display revolution and potentially a long-overdue renaissance of mobile phone design, impressive display aspects and proportions seem to be the most exciting alternative to the boring “slab” form factor.

Sprint offers $350 off the iPhone X if you trade in an eligible smartphone

We are now fast approaching the start point for iPhone X pre-orders. These will go live on Friday morning, and Sprint is the first carrier to reveal the deal it’s prepared for would-be iPhone X owners.

It’s a pretty nice sounding affair, but not without caveats of course. You can save as much as $350 on the handset, which should come in handy considering its $999 starting price.

In order to take advantage of those savings however, you will need to use Sprint’s Flex leasing scheme and trade in an eligible smartphone. The list of those includes the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, iPhone 6S and… (Source)

New render shows the upcoming OnePlus 5T once more

Last year OnePlus went from its normal release cadence of one high-end smartphone per year to two, when it surprisingly revealed the OnePlus 3T in November. And it’s starting to look increasingly likely that the Chinese company will do the exact same thing in 2017, since the rumored OnePlus 5T is leaking more and more lately.

Just a few hours ago we showed you some leaked renders purportedly depicting it in all of its 18:9 screened glory, and now there’s another one making the rounds.

This looks more like a teaser that OnePlus itself would put out than a leaked press render, but… (Source)

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Note 4X get unstable Android One ROMs

The Xiaomi Mi A1 showed us that people take great interest in a Xiaomi smartphone running stock Android. Xiaomi Mi 5X owners got the chance through a stable Android One ROM courtesy of the Mi A1.

Now the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and Redmi Note 4X are getting the chance to test out Android 7.1.2, ported from the Xiaomi Mi A1.

The ROM comes courtesy of XDA Developers’ senior member GLokin666, but at this point it’s nowhere near stable.

Noteworthy issues are non-functional fingerprint scanners and infrared blasters. The camera on the Redmi Note 4 isn’t stable under the Android One ROM as… (Source)

The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) is finally getting Android 7.1.1

Samsung is rolling out the Android 7.1.1 update to the Galaxy J5 (2016) in Poland and possibly elsewhere in Europe, as expected.

In addition to what Android 7.1.1 brings on its own, Samsung has included its latest Experience 8.5 into the firmware, bringing the Galaxy J5 (2016) to Galaxy Note8 levels of software functionality (minus hardware-specific features, of course).

Experience 8.5 is much faster than Experience 8.1 which is built on Android 7.0 that premiered on the Galaxy S8.

If you own a Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) and haven’t seen a prompt for an update you can check… (Source)
