I’m totally sold on VR. Before Nokia ‘s step in the VR direction, I was already overwhelmed by the realism and potential experience that VR applications, games and videos can provide.

Do you have an old Nokia gathering dust somewhere? Well, just keep it stored well for a bit longer as it’ll probably be worth something even more one day. Not that you’d ever sell it of course. The bastion of facts that is the UK’s ‘Mirror‘ reports that some old phones might be worth a […]

My SGS6 can barely last half a working day sometimes (random updates here and there either kill it or make it last about a day). Poor battery life is just something we’re accepting.
