It's time for a new mobile contract!

I have an HTC ONE M8. I love it.


I really love it in fact. It has an application called Blinkfeed. I find it so valuable for the stuff I do for the site (It really helps me hunt games down).

The Samsung S7 is the phone everyone is talking about, does anyone know if something similar to Blinkfeed is available for Samsung.


Or....


any other phones I should be thinking about?

What is it that Blinkfeed is doing for you to help hunt down games?
When I had my HTC One M7 it was one of the first things I turned off. It just seemed to jumble social media feeds and general news onto one screen.

To keep on top of gaming and tech news I use Feedly which lets me subscribe to most websites by searching for them in the app. Pretty handy because it works and syncs between Chrome on PC / Mac and my mobile devices.

There's also a similar app called Flipboard, so might be worth checking both of those out before switching to a different handset.

In terms of phones, the HTC 10 might be a good fit as it's their latest and got some good reviews. The Galaxy S7 and Edge are great phones but I'd highly recommend trying some phones out in a shop first as a lot of the newer phones are a bit of a handful with their massive screens!

Blinkfeed literally is a newsfeed.


What I do is set it to just certain games site (RPS/PC Gamer/Polygon etc.).


I guess I'm after something similar that displays highlights, lets me control content and looks nice.

Both of those apps should do the trick. Feedly can show you what's popular, customise the layout and save articles to read later. I'm sure having easy access to the same newsfeed on PC will be very useful, it sure is for me 8-)

I've gone for the S7 Edge.

My word, it's only every 2 years, but dealing with those sales people is a nightmare. Cheers for the help guys, i will probably nudge you again soon about those apps.
