Don't know if I should post this here, but:
Are those clean your iphone apps online legit? I want to clean and free space from my iPhone 5c, getting rid of the "other" folder that I cannot explain what is, but I want to clean it without affecting my phone in a negative way. Nothing I tried seemed to work, and I keep hearing about those online apps where you can clean your phone. Never knew how legit or safe they were, and if so, which to get.


What say you guys?

I don't know. I never owned an iPhone, but I was a Windows Phone user with a similar problem when WP8 first came out. Users had to download a third party app from HTC to clear out the "other" section in their storage only for it to come back in a few days. It didn't get fixed until Microsoft did an OS upgrade.

Good news Amazon Prime Mobile users!

Amazon Will Refund Prime Members Who Paid to Remove Ads on Lockscreen




https://www.phonearena.com/news/Amaz...e-ads_id102441


Quote:
Since 2016, Amazon has been offering an ever-increasing lineup of Prime Exclusive phones – unlocked devices sold at significantly lower prices. There has always been a catch, though – they shipped with preinstalled Amazon software and had lockscreen ads. While you couldn't remove the apps, you had the option to pay a fee (depending on your device) to remove the lockscreen ads. At least that was the case until last week, when Amazon made the decision to remove the lockscreen ads for everyone, but increase the cost of every Prime Exclusive device by $20.

But what about the ones who have already paid to remove the ads? Well, they will get a refund. The good news came via e-mail sent to those eligible for a refund, notifying them they would get their money back in the next two to three business days. The refund will be in the form of an Amazon gift card equal to the fee you paid for the ad removal, giving you none other options than to spend the money on Amazon.

HMD-Nokia May Be Creating a Successor to the Lumia 1020/Nokia 808?



https://www.phonearena.com/news/Noki...-lens_id102581

Quote:
A "pro" version of the Nokia 8 is reportedly in the works, powered by the speedy Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset and sporting five cameras at the rear. Yes, five.

According to NokiaPowerUser, HMD Global, the parent company behind the rekindled use of the beloved Nokia brand, could be preparing a more advanced version of its current flagship and we might theoretically see this one at MWC 2018 though the device is allegedly prepped for an August-September release. As a reminder, Nokia will attend the important trade show in Barcelona, Spain, and will host a keynote event on February 25.

The most intriguing feature of the phone as per the rumors will be its five Zeiss cameras at the back. As we mentioned in our original piece when we first heard about the five-camera phone, this device could feature a rotating element with housing all 5 lenses and LED flashes at the rear, which would probably have varying focal lengths and apertures to make up for tons of specific shooting situations. This opens the possibility for lossless zoom with a longer lens, superb low-light performance with a wider one, and so on.

Overall, it's something intriguing and never before seen on a smartphone.

Other probable specs for the phone are a 18:9 display and double-glass design, but nothing will probably be able to top that penta-lens camera.

As we said, Nokia has a slew of rumored devices in the making so there's no way of knowing is this Nokia 8 Pro is real or not, but if the company really wants to continue its upward momentum, the time is nigh for it to truly innovate. The penta-lens Nokia 8 Pro could just be that.

Man I love this annual upgrade option. Already pretty much 3 months have gone so only 9 months till a new handset. 1 year makes so much difference to 2 years by when even a top of the range phone gets dated.

Will probably soon pick up the Galaxy S8+ after two years with my G4.

Pixel 2 XL and Essential were my alternatives.

AT&T coverage in my apartment turned to garbage a few months ago and, in AT&T's infinite wisdom, doesn't support WiFi calling on any Android phones.

I tried out MintSim for a week and they have really tempting prices but the two main drawbacks were no domestic roaming (international roaming for voice was an option) and no visual voicemail.

Since I have a Pixel 2, I decided to give Project Fi a shot. Signing up and porting the number was easy and took about 5 min (had to retry activating service a few times). We'll see how it goes during my commute tomorrow.

Is this Project Andromeda (Surface Phone) definitely happening or a rumour? I'd definitely be interested if so.

It's happening. Windows Central (who outed MacLaren) have confirmed it's real. It's more like a handheld foldable tablet with phone capabilities.

Ah awesome. That sounds great. If it meets expectations I might trade my Windows Phone for it (Lumia 1520).

Is the PIxel 2 Xl screen really as bad as people say it is?

It's not horrible, but compared to the Galaxy and iPhone it is subpar for what you're paying for. I have friends who have one and love it so it's truly up to you. It has the best camera right now on a smartphone and it will get timely updates directly from Google. The only real drawback is no water and dust resistance or headphone jack. You could also consider Android One phones that are coming out from the likes of Nokia.
