Xiaomi’s latest fitness tracker doesn’t look like one at all

The Mijia Quartz Watch doesn’t look like your average fitness tracker, but it is hiding a lot of smarts.

Xiaomi is known primarily for its phones, but the Chinese brand is the second-largest wearable manufacturer in the world. That’s down to its affordable line of fitness bands under the Mi Band label, but that’s not all Xiaomi makes. It introduced a full-fledged smartwatch last month, and over the years it has launched a few hybrid wearables, like  [Read More…]

Disney+ doesn’t have a hacking problem — it has a password problem

Disney+ doesn’t have a hacking problem — but does have a password problem.

It’s not (totally) Disney’s fault if you’re reusing a weak password in the first place. But Disney also still has some work to do.

Repeat after me: “I will not use a password more than once. I will use a password manager of some kind to create strong, unique passwords. And I will, whenever possible, use some form of two-factor authentication.”

The Pixel 4 doesn’t support 4K 60fps video because it uses too much space

Also, most users stick to 1080p.

What you need to know The Pixel 4 doesn’t shoot 4K video at 60fps because it uses too much storage space. Google also found that most users stick with 1080p and chose to focus on improving that over implementing 4K at 60fps. The camera is still capable of filming 4K but is limited to 30fps.

The Pixel line of smartphones is regarded by many as one of the best phone cameras  [Read More…]

The Note 10 runs Android even if Samsung doesn’t want to admit it

Distancing itself from features you won’t see in a year makes sense for Samsung and it’s own Note-worthy feature set. It just seems wrong, somehow.

The Galaxy Note 10 event was a weird one, even by Samsung standards. Most of it was weird in a good way — not rambling on about the CPU model or other specs that most people don’t care about and instead showing off really cool things like S Pen wireless controls is  [Read More…]

Will you buy the Galaxy Note 10 if it doesn’t have a headphone jack?

Let the headphone jack debate commence.

We’re still at least three months or so away before Samsung unveils the Galaxy Note 10, but even so, that hasn’t stopped the rumor mill from speculating about what we may see with this year’s Note.

Right now, one of the most controversial reports is that the Galaxy Note 10 will not have a 3.5mm headphone jack. This has long been one of the staples for pretty much all Samsung phones,  [Read More…]

The DOJ still doesn’t want to approve T-Mobile and Sprint’s merger

Boost Mobile will be sold if/when the merger is completed.

What you need to know FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is recommending approval for T-Mobile and Sprint’s merger. Boost Mobile will be sold off as part of the deal. T-Mobile and Sprint must commit to building out 5G over the next three years.

Updated 4:01 PM ET: Per a report from Bloomberg, today’s news still isn’t enough to sway the Department of Justice in favor of approving the  [Read More…]

The Pixel 3a doesn’t support RCS on T-Mobile

Well that stinks.

When Google announced that the Pixel 3a would be coming to multiple carriers in the United States, it was pretty damn exciting. Verizon’s reign of exclusivity is finally over, meaning the 3a is accessible to more people than ever compared to past Pixels.

Unfortunately, if you happen to use the Pixel 3a on T-Mobile, you will be missing out on one big feature — RCS.

RCS (Rich Communication Services) is the framework Google uses  [Read More…]

Google’s new Pixel 3a doesn’t support Daydream VR

It’s all thanks to resolution and framerate issues.

Google finally unveiled the Pixel 3a and 3a XL yesterday at Google I/O 2019 to much fanfare. The new Pixels start at $ 400, and despite a few compromises, provide an experience very similar to the original Pixel 3 phones.

However, to meet the new lower price point, sacrifices had to be made — one of which is Daydream support, Android’s VR platform.

While Daydream works fine with the  [Read More…]

The OnePlus 7 doesn’t have a water resistance rating — here’s why

This is just silly.

OnePlus has always had to make strategic cuts to its phones in order to hit extremely enticing price points, and one of the handful of places it hasn’t budged is in water resistance ratings — commonly seen as an “IPXX” number. As flagships have standardized on ratings like IP57 and IP68 across the board, OnePlus has stuck with its approach — and that will include the upcoming OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro.
