Competition good or bad
February 13, 2018 - Written By John Anon Welcome to The Big Debate.This is a new series here at AndroidHeadlines where we will look to provide different perspectives on some of the more interesting (and at times, controversial) technology talking points. This is not meant to lead the discussion in any way or to suggest one side is truer than the other. The object here is to simply open the discussion by providing insight from the editing team on a given topic.Below you will find perspectives to the question posed from all of the editors and in alphabetical order – again to avoid the suggestion of leading the narrative. Each editor has their own perspective, experience, and knowledge of the topic and has provided their insight without seeing the insights from the other editors. So whether rightly or wrongly, whether you agree or not, it is their opinion on the debate. Nothing more, nothing less. With the exception of minor edits (a comma here, a full stop there) the words of … [Read more...] about The Big Debate: OnePlus, Good For The Industry Or Just Good At Marketing?
Exactly one year ago, HMD Global gained the rights to make and sell smartphones under the Nokia brand. The Finnish company made great progress in its first year of business. It got what was once the most respected brand name in the industry back on the map and released six Android smartphones. It also made many mistakes.In an interview with Bloomberg last December, former CEO Arto Nummela said that HMD “will be extremely true to the Nokia brand.” Did the company keep its promise? Let’s take a look. The good HMD has stayed true to the Nokia brand when it comes to user-friendliness. It made a smart move by avoiding gimmicky smartphone software features and deciding to stick to the basics. Thus, Nokia-branded handsets are some of the few running stock Android. Smartphones with vanilla Android have many advantages that make them popular. They are one of the first to get major OS upgrades. They also offer a simple, fast, and user-friendly interface, and don’t come … [Read more...] about Year one: The good and bad of Nokia’s return to smartphones

While this year’s Mobile World Congress isn’t over yet – we have until Wednesday for that – but it might as well be, as all of the big stuff has already been announced, analyzed, and previewed a million times over, and the only thing left to do is aimlessly wander about the showfloor. For me, however, this year felt somewhat underwhelming – with the Samsung Galaxy S8 being a no-show, and the LG G6 having leaked well in advance, few things managed to surprise.Here are some thoughts on this year's MWCFor what it’s worth, however, some of the new devices this year were still pretty cool, even if they weren’t as groundbreaking. Then again, some things were less than good, too, and a bunch of stuff even bordered on the awful, but, of course, everything is subjective, and even more so in the smartphone world, where one man’s must-have feature can be another’s dealbreaker. Still, this particular author has opinions™, and isn't afraid … [Read more...] about The good, the bad and the ugly: some thoughts on MWC 2017
