Last December word got out that T-Mobile would sell Alcatel’s first Windows 10 smartphone, the OneTouch Fierce XL. And in January at CES, Alcatel finally made the handset official, yet without saying anything about availability or pricing.

Now a new report claims to shed some light on both of those matters. First off, apparently the Alcatel Fierce XL with Windows 10 is due to land at T-Mobile this Wednesday, on February 10 – so in just a couple of days.

Instagram makes multiple account support official for all

Instagram has been experimenting with adding support for multiple accounts to its Android and iOS apps for months now – the first reported instance of people seeing this was in November. But that was all testing, and the feature has not so far been available to all users of its apps.

This week, however, that will change. The Facebook-owned photo sharing service has officially announced that multiple account support is coming to everyone. This will be part of version 7.15 of the Instagram app for iOS and Android, which will make it to the iTunes App Store and the Google Play Store in the next few days.

Once you get the new app, you can head on over to your profile settings and easily add another account. After that, if you tap on your username at the top of your profile you’ll be able to switch between accounts. And once you have multiple accounts added, you’ll see your profile picture in various places throughout the app, so you aren’t confused as to which particular account you’re currently using.

OnePlus 2 gets a permanent price cut, now down to $349

OnePlus made some significant changes recently – the OnePlus X went on sale invite-free while all orders above $ 100 are shipping worldwide free of charge. But apparently the company had more treats in the pipeline.

As of today, the OnePlus 2 gets a permanent price cut – its new price is $ 349 (or €345 in EU), down from $ 389. This is the price for the 64GB model, as the 16GB one has been discontinued.

But this isn’t all. If you purchased a OnePlus 2 in the past 15 days, you’d be getting $ 40 refund (or the equivalent of currency you chose to pay with).

You can learn more about the new price cut here. OnePlus says the price will stay this low forever, so maybe we won’t be seeing another price cut in the future.

Weekly poll: Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) and A7 (2016), hot or not?

gsmarena 002 Weekly poll: Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) and A7 (2016), hot or not?

Samsung’s alphabet goes like this: E, J, A, S. That is if you want to arrange its series from “budget” to “premium,” but this doesn’t tell the whole story – the new A-series is closer to the S-series than it is to the Js.

So far we’ve examined the middle of the pack – the 5.2″ Galaxy A5 (2016) and the 5.5″ Galaxy A7 (2016). There are also the 4.7″ A3 and 6″ A9 (plus a rumored 5.7″ A8) too, but it’s the A5 and A7 in the spotlight today.

The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) is a knock-out – a phone with a premium design and a premium build. We even think it’s slightly better than the Galaxy S6 flagship, but there’s a catch.

The 4-inch iPhone is apparently happening, judging by the mounting rumors on the subject. Things have escalated to the point where we’re now talking of a March 15 unveiling, alongside an iPad Air 3.

There was significant debate on the naming, with sources pointing in different directions, but so far it’s settled on iPhone 5se. So this iPhone 5se will come in at least three color options, Silver and Space Gray the more orthodox, but also Pink.

Remember, though, Sony is not including the fingerprint sensor on its Z5 line of devices for the US for some reason, most likely due to logistics.
