Instagram for Android received a major update. Version 5.1 of the popular photo sharing app brings a host of improvements including revamped UI and snappier overall performance.
The new Instagram for Android will now load twice as fast thanks to reduced size and the aforementioned optimized performance. The developers promise that the app “feels native and at home on any Android device” (think smartphones with less than stellar specs).
The app also features neater design. Visuals have been simplified, thus making the app easier to use on devices with both small and large displays.

OnePlus, a company composed primarily of former Oppo employees, has been fervently trying to get hype for its upcoming One flagship over the past several months. It's marketing the OnePlus One as an ultra-premium smartphone that'll beat many top-brand manufacturers in key areas.
The latest bit of teasing involves Pete Lau, the OnePlus founder himself, posting a picture of a Sony Xperia Z1 on the OnePlus forums.

While there are any number of tricks Lau could have used to fake the shot (we don't see the Z1 in full frame, after...
