    6 days ago - By AndroidPhoneFans

    The bezels on Sony's Xperia devices have become almost as ubiquitous to the company as Nokia's early indestructible phones that gave the Finnish company its tough reputation. But a new leak spotted by GizChina suggests that Sony is finally going with the flow and will adapt to the new bezel-less trend in smartphones.
    Sony's latest Xperia devices will feature ultra-narrow bezels housing a 5.7-inch 18:9 screen with a 4K resolution. That's all we know about them so far, but Sony has already confirmed they'll feature Qualcomm's newly announced Snapdragon 845 processor and likely 6GB of RAM...

    Patreon users are worried about the site's new payment structure

    6 days ago - By The Verge

    Patreon has set up a new payment model that's supposed to make artists' lives easier, but could discourage small-time patrons from making pledges. Yesterday, Patreon announced that it would no longer take payment processing fees out of an artist's monthly funds.
