OnePlus 5 Review

OnePlus 5 Review

The OnePlus 5 is the newest phone by OnePlus, a company that in just three years has fought its way to become one of the recognizable names among flagship makers. It did so by word of mouth and a large group of dedicated fans, standing by its ‘never settle’ motto. Oh yes, and by making flagship-grade phones with top specs at affordable prices. The OnePlus 5, however, is its most expensive phone, and it’s got an iPhone inspired look and even a similar dual camera on the back. It is the company’s best and the company’s most controversial phone. Also, it’s the only one it makes, OnePlus’ all-or-nothing bet. Read more here:

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 plus unveiled

One new button did appear – it summons Bixby, the digital assistant. Bixby has three jobs, the first of which is to answer voice queries. It can see the world around it too, not just listen to it. Image recognition can spot landmarks and find products on Amazon. Finally, there’s a hub on the homescreen similar to Google Now. By the way, Bixby will power Samsung’s Internet of Things – the company expects by 2020 most of their appliances will be connected and under Bixby’s control. Read more here:

Huawei P10 vs Huawei P9

Huawei P10 vs Huawei P9: Never change a winning team



The Huawei P9 was one of last year’s pleasant surprises – with its sleek design, snappy performance, and close to no gimmicks, it was a device that just does/ And the silver lining of all was that sweet dual camera setup at the rear that was co-engineered with Leica, the legendary camera company that is well-known for its high-quality optics. An excellent phone that we liked very much. Read all here:

Nokia 6, 5, 3 and 3310 hands on

Nokia at MWC 2017

The Nokia 6 has been around for a while now, but it is now officially set for a worldwide release. To celebrate, HMD unveiled a special edition Arte Black color, which comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage. The other colors come with 3GB and 32GB respectively. What we think is most appealing about the new Nokia trio is the attitude towards software. The phones come with pure Android 7.1 Nougat – the company didn’t touch a thing – and a commitment for timely updates. Effectively, this makes them the affordable Pixel phones Google never gave us (let’s not mention Android One). Read all here:

Sony Xperia XZ Premium hands on

Sony Xperia XZ Premium hands-on

The 4K HDR mobile screen is the first of its kind. To be clear, this is not the first 4K screen (that honor goes to the Xperia Z5 Premium). It is not the first HDR screen either (that was, briefly, the Note7). It’s the combination of the two that is novel. HDR content, however, is still hard to come by unless you use the subscription-based video streaming services by Netflix or Amazon. Read all here:

LG G6 hands on

LG G6 Hands-on review

The 3,300mAh battery inside the G6 packs 18% more capacity than the G5 before it – that can’t be bad. It’s sealed-in this time though, so you won’t be able to pop in a fully charged one for instant 0 to 100% battery. Oh yes, the snap-on Friends accessories will remain a one-off for the G5, at least for the time being – one of the not-so-successful experiments on the previous generation, or at least tough to market, if you ask us.

TCL executive sends out 4 second video showing the QWERTY on the BlackBerry Mercury

Steve Cistulli, President and General Manager for TCL Communication, sent out a tweet yesterday that included four seconds of video showing the QWERTY on the upcoming BlackBerry ‘Mercury.’ BlackBerry and TCL entered into a licensing agreement that calls forTCL to design, manufacture, promote, distribute, sell and support future BlackBerry models. BlackBerry is now focusing on software and services.
Last month, the TCL executive cited an old Remington typewriter that was apparently the first to offer a ‘shift’ key, in order to promote the Mercury’s appearance at CES. We took that to mean that the new phone will have a game changing physical QWERTY keyboard. And now comes today’s 4-second video teaser that shows a fabulous looking QWERTY keyboards with frets.” Read all here:
