Essential Phone is old news, but it just got hot in the last few days because we continually see reports of company failure. Will Essential survive or not is still unknown, but we hope for the best.

A couple of weeks ago we had a chance to welcome new Android release – Android P.

Instead, we will talk about “Digital Wellbeing” initiative and how Android P address it.
With the first day of New year, we know it’s time for one thing – 2017 recap that includes all the phones, apps and trends we enjoyed in the past year.

Now, for the first time in history, we can use our mobile device and go to an entirely different place just by using a VR gadget. Isn’t it amazing?
