Samsung Galaxy S9+ hits Geekbench with record-breaking scores for Android

With less than a week to go until their official announcement on Sunday, a few hours ago almost every single detail regarding Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and S9+ was leaked. And yet, while we’ve already seen the Exynos-powered S9 going through Geekbench, it’s only now that its sibling’s run has been added to the benchmark’s database. The S9 already had very respectable results, with a single-core score of 3,648 and a multi-core score of 8,894. The S9+, however, beat even that, as you can see, scoring 3,773 and 9,024, respectively. To put that result into perspective, consider that in…

Samsung Galaxy S9+ with Snapdragon 845 hits AnTuTu with 6GB of RAM

The Samsung Galaxy S9+ (SM-G9650) – the one with a Snapdragon 845 chipset – was spotted by AnTuTu in its database. Surprisingly, this version has 6GB of RAM rather than 4GB like the Exynos 9810 version we saw on Geekbench yesterday. The rest is a familiar story, starting with an 18:9 screen with resolution defaulting to 1,080 x 2,220px (of course, that’s set in software, the hardware will be QHD+). The OS is Android 8.0 Oreo as expected and there is 64GB of built-in storage. Samsung Galaxy S9+ (Snapdragon 845) specs and score on AnTuTu The benchmark score is interesting too. It…

Ketchapp’s ‘Knife Hit’ New Arsenal Update Hits the App Store

Back before we had wide screen deluxe cinematic experiences in the palm of our hand, mobile games used to involve very simple ideas delivered in a very simple format. This was a canvas that developers could use to distill the essence of fun gameplay down to a very pure form. Games like Ketchapp’s Knife Hit [Free] were the fare of yesteryear but the great thing about these tiny little micro games is that it is still a great format. They still provide a very concentrated burst of fun you can sit down for a few minutes of a time and this is reflected in how well Knife Hit is doing.

The premise of Knife Hit is that you have a whole bunch of knives you are trying to toss at a spinning object and get them to stick. Hitting the hilt of a previously tossed knife will end your run and force you to start over in your quest to become the best Knife Hitter ever. As you progress on towards tougher targets, some will come pre-stuck with knives, some will change speed or reverse and some will have apples sitting on them that can be hit and gathered as a currency. This app may not have the most universal appeal, but for folks that like to play with sharp objects this one has some pretty solid vicarious enjoyment, and like any good game that simulates an activity you should probably not do in real life, there is a shop full of items that can be unlocked to do the deed with. Some of them are goofy, some deadly, and we just got some great news that the arsenal of knives has just been expanded via a new update.

Browsing through the knife shop you can see the cutlery you have already unlocked as well as shadowed previews of the rest. At the moment it looks like there are 4 general categories of knives: video watching unlocks, currency unlocks, boss level unlocks, and paid knife packs. The paid knkifes seem mostly exotic with a few exceptions like a rapier, an exacto knife, and a bayonet style blade with a rifle butt handle. The currency and video unlocks range from scissors and more gun-bayonets to swordfish, walking sticks and tridents. The most bizzare from what I can see are the boss blades you can unlock simply by progressing through more and more of the game. Sausage skewers, headphones with music blasting out, and chainsaws all seem to make this the most interesting and rewarding category.

The app teases a yet to be released challenge mode which I am sure will offer unique situations with which to test your tossing skills. In the meantime the normal gameplay offers a pretty big challenge in a very fun simple format, so check out Knife Hit and its new armaments today on the App store.

HTC free fall continues in January, revenue hits six-month low

HTC published its financial results for January, and they do not look promising. Compared with December 2017, revenue sank 15.3%, while the fall on a yearly basis was even bigger – 27%. The consolidated income of NT$ 3.403 billion (or $ 116.12 million) marked a six-month low for the Taiwanese company. HTC’s golden hen – Google Pixel 2 Analysts say lowered Pixel 2 sales and HTC U11 Eyes launch mid-January hurt the sales performance. In February, Vive Pro and the standalone headset Vive Focus VR will be available, but because of reduced work days during Lunar New Year, sales are…
