If you have been keeping up with tech news over the past few weeks you might have heard about the OnePlus One. Its a new smartphone that is set to be launched on April 23rd by OnePlus, a new kid on the block. On paper the specifications rival this year’s biggest flagships but we can’t be sure of its performance until the device is actually in our hands. OnePlus hasn’t given a glimpse of the actual smartphone as yet but leaked photos originating out of China give us just that.
About a week back we reported about a popular application on the Google Play Store which was actually a scam. Called “Virus Shield,” it cruised to the top of the Play Store lists in under a fortnight. It claimed to protect users’ personal information from “harmful viruses, malware and spyware.” It even claimed to “improve the speed of your phone” and touted ad-blocking capabilities. The app cost $3.99 and did nothing more than changing a red “X” to a red “check” graphic.
