Not anticipated before, OnePlus 3 directly make a tantrum shortly after launch. Because, this phone is equipped penggarapnya with the specifications above average. Not just the processor Snapdragon 820 paka, RAM sink on 3 reached OnePlus 6 GB.
But in fact, the specifications of which carried OnePlus 3 is not new, that makes it interesting is when looking at banderolnya. Just imagine, when other manufacturers menbanderol cell phone berprosesor Snapdragon 820 in the range of Usd 8 millions, OnePlus 3 are only sold in the range of Usd 5 million.
In the figure there is indeed already the Mi 5, but AIL Xiaomi phones it still offered for 4 GB of RAM. As is known, whereas OnePlus 3 had left away with 6 GB of RAM.
But regardless of specification, OnePlus 3 PDC also have hidden features that are quite interesting. What's it? The following list.
If there are Dark in iOS Mode, then the OnePlus 3 got the name Night Mode. The working principle is similar to each other, the goal is to provide the appropriate light when the temperature of the cell phones in use at the time of the night.
Funnily enough, the Dark Mode had arguably will be removed to the Google Android. But instead the OnePlus membenamkannya first in OxygenOS carried OnePlus 3.

Google is planning to merge its Chrome OS with Android operating system and roll out a single operating system by 2017.
New Android OS Optimized for Laptops:
Yes, a Single Operating system for Mobile devices, desktops, laptops and notebooks, just what Microsoft is offering to its users with Windows 10.
Chrome OS is a lightweight operating system based on the Linux kernel and designed by Google to power its Chromebook Laptops and Desktops.
Here's the deal:
According to a recent report published by the Wall Street Journal, Google has been working for two years to merge Chrome OS and Android, and you can expect to see an early version of the 'single OS for all' as soon as next year at Google I/O event.
Is Google Killing Chrome OS?
NO, Google isn't Killing Chrome OS.
Some have reported that Google might "kill" Chrome operating system, but it's not what the company has planned about.

Google seems to still have some dual-strategy in mind, as Hiroshi Lockheimer, the Senior VP of Chrome OS, Chromecast and Android, confirmed on twitter...
Chrome OS will remain as an open source operating system that other companies can use to integrate in their desktops and laptops, and Google engineers will continue maintaining the operating system.
"There's a ton of momentum for Chromebooks and we are very committed to Chrome OS. I just bought two for my kids for schoolwork!" — Hiroshi Lockheimer (@lockheimer) tweeted.
The Integration of Chrome OS into Android is not unexpected… speculation has existed for years.
Ever since current Google CEO Sundar Pichai became the incharge of both Android and Chrome OS in March, 2013, there has been a lot of speculation about the merging of the two operating systems.

So YES, Chrome OS and Android are merging – and YES, Chrome OS will still work independently of Android.

The move is an attempt to prevent small, unmanned aircraft from compromising air safety, as the number of complaints about errant flyers has skyrocketed in recent months, the regulators said.
"We are certainly seeing a significant increase in reports," Michael Huerta, administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), said in a press briefing. "Clearly, this is an industry that is taking off, and there is a lot of activity taking place in the national airspace system."
Drones are taking to the skies in droves, and the number of tiny fliers is expected to multiply in the coming years; Amazon's Prime Air initiative and Google's Project Wing aim to use drones to deliver commercial goods in the next decade. Already this year, pilots and others have reported 100 complaints about drones a month, roughly double the rate of complaints in 2014, the regulators said. Many of those complaints are about close calls, in which drones narrowly miss other aircraft.
The FAA bars people from flying drones within 5 miles (8 kilometers) of an airport, or higher than 400 feet (122 meters) above the ground. But increasingly, drone pilots are breaking those rules. In August, for instance, two airplanes landing at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York came within 100 feet (30 m) of a drone flying at an altitude of roughly 800 feet (244 m). When such rogue drones violate airspace, the government currently has no way to tie a particular drone back to the person using it.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and FAA are still working out the details, but right now, the new registry would not require drones to carry transponders or trackers, said Anthony Foxx, the secretary of transportation. And it would not institute a policy of "geofencing," which involves creating marked-off safe spaces where drones would automatically be deactivated, he said.
Unless a drone crashes or investigators have it in hand, it could be difficult to identify tiny flyers from sight alone. Still, that's not the primary problem, as in most cases investigators have gotten a good look at the rogue drone, Foxx said.
"Our challenge so far has not been identifying the drone itself," Foxx said. "It's been connecting it back to the person who's using it."
A new Google Trends tool shows you what costumes are popular right now in your area and around the country, so you can be sure to wear something more original than, say, a Stormtrooper costume to this weekend's festivities.
Dubbed Frightgeist, the Google tool takes the 3 billion search queries typed into Google every day and filters out costume-related inquiries. Then, the tool maps the top 500 costume searches throughout the United States. You can use the tool to see what costumes are trending on the national level, or you can find out what costumes are hot right now, anywhere from San Francisco (anything Star Wars) to Scranton, Pennsylvania (Poison Ivy).
But if you want to look like everyone else this Halloween, then go out and buy a Harley Quinn costume. Also known as Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel, this supervillain is best-known as an adversary to Batman and a bosom buddy of the Joker. She'll make an appearance in the upcoming movie "Suicide Squad," and she will also most certainly be at any Halloween party you attend this weekend.
"Star Wars" takes second place on this year's most wanted costume list, but the movie characters you see trick-or-treating in your neighborhood will depend on where you live. If you call Monterey, California, home, you'll be sure to see a few Luke Skywalkers roaming the streets, and the force will also be strong in Louisiana, where Jedi searches abound. However, Darth Vader will be lurking in the colder northern states, most notably Michigan and Ohio.
While many of this year's most popular getups have their roots in Hollywood blockbusters or comic book sensations, there are also a number of more traditional costumes on Google's list. Hippies are all the rage in Colorado this year, for example. And in Honolulu, pirates are the costume of choice. Owls are a hit in Oklahoma.
Oh, and if you're afraid of clowns, steer clear of Portland, Maine.
That's why I wanted to share three health apps that can help you better manage your health. Because what good is it to pursue your dreams, if you aren't around to enjoy the results of your hard work?
1. Doctors On Demand
Doctors on Demand enables you to visit a doctor without ever leaving your home, helping you use a computer, tablet or phone to have a doctor video chat with you. The service will help you locate and connect you to licensed doctors, psychologists, pediatricians and more. Insurance coverage is available and fees can be paid with HSA & FSA. If you pay out pocket it costs $40 for 15 minutes with a doctor or $50 for 25 minute with a Psychologist. And yes, their physicians are able to prescribe a wide range of drugs (they do not prescribe narcotics or pain medications, that have been designated as U.S. controlled substances).
I'm a big fan of text4baby for a few reasons. The free service for pregnant women and new moms works by sending text messages three times a week with information about how to have a healthy pregnancy and baby. And the messages are timed to the pregnant woman's due date or the baby's date of birth, sending tips that are relevant to where a mother is in her pregnancy or where a baby is in stages of development. Tips range from breastfeeding to car seat safety to reminders about exercise, immunizations, nutrition and more. The service combines interactive text messages, an app, video and web content in English and Spanish. Sign up by texting BABY (or BEBE for Spanish) to 511411 or by downloading the app.
RISE, an app available on iPhone (coming to Android in 2016), pairs you up with a registered dietitian to improve your diet and reach health goals. You share photos of your meals and your exercise for the day with your coach, who then looks for areas where you can improve and gives advice, helps you set goals and is there (virtually) to pat you on the back when you hit a milestone. What's also great is that you can text as much as you want with your dietitian and no need to go into an office. There are fees for this service ranging from $9 per month to $50 a month. There is a free 7-day trial so you can try it out for a week to see if it's a good fit (pun intended) for you!
The Droid Turbo 2 is the successor to last year's Droid Turbo and is a Verizon-exclusive in the US. The phone has been priced at $624 for the base 32GB variant, while the 64GB variant of the phone will cost buyers $720. It will be available starting October 29.

Coming to the main USP of the device, Motorola's Droid Turbo 2 comes with a shatterproof screen that will not crack or break with ease, according to the company. Motorola calls it the ShatterShield. To break it up for you, the screen is made of five different layers: an exterior protective lens, an interior lens, dual touch layer, a flexible AMOLED display (P-OLED panel) and an aluminum chassis.
The set up has been designed to absorb shock. Although the Droid Turbo 2 is practically indestructible, according to Motorola, the company has you covered in case things get dirty. The Droid Turbo 2 comes with a four year warranty should you shatter or crack it.
The phone is also resistant to accidental spillage or rain thanks to a protective nano-coating. It is however not water-proof like the Moto G Gen 3.
The Droid Turbo 2 comes with a 5.4-inch Quad HD display with a 2560x1440 pixels resolution and 544 pixels per inch. It is powered by a 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. The phone supports up to 2TB of expandable memory via microSD card.
It sports a 21-megapixel camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel camera on the front. The 4G LTE capable handset runs almost stock Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and will be upgradable to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The Droid Turbo 2 uses a 3,760mAh battery and ships with a TurboCharger that can provide up to 13 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes of charging, according to the company.
The company also announced the Droid Maxx 2 which is simply a rebranded Moto X Play on Verizon network (again an exclusive to the US).
