Multi-Window on phones is the best Android feature you’re probably not using

Lately I’ve found myself trying to do more in a shorter time, which means employing tools my phone already offers — like Multi-Window.

At the end of 2017, I promised that I would spend less time on my phone, since I wanted to reclaim some of that often-wasted time for other things, like reading or spending more time with actual humans. But I need to use a phone — and often many phones — for work, so picking it  [Read More…]

The OnePlus 5T in Sandstone White is gorgeous, and probably won’t stay that way for long

Another limited edition OnePlus phone to drool over.

When OnePlus announced the Star Wars Limited Edition version of the OnePlus 5T, it was inevitable that it’d parlay the intrigue in this new model to a more widely available version without the movie branding. So here we are, with the “Sandstone White” OnePlus 5T — that’s significant because it’s white, dramatically different from the “Midnight Black” launch color, but also because it reintroduces the “Sandstone” moniker that was  [Read More…]

Essential has probably sold around 5,000 Essential Phones since its release

More than a month after its initial release, the Essential Phone has only sold 5,000 units. That’s not good.

Just like every year, 2017 has brought the release of a lot of new phones — most of them very good. You’ve got your heavy-hitters like the Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30, but then there’s the market oddity that is the Essential Phone. The very first product from Andy Rubin’s new startup was officially launched on August 17, and  [Read More…]

A Special Edition OnePlus 5 is probably coming on September 19

Remember that last year OnePlus teamed up with French fashion boutique Colette in order to launch a Special Edition of the OnePlus 3T? Well, it seems that OnePlus is gearing up once again to launch a style-oriented limited edition phone. And it’s going to be a new version of the OnePlus 5 this time. The […]

‘Lawnchair’ is the best new Android launcher you (probably) haven’t tried yet

New open-source launcher brings Google Now and Pixel Launcher capabilities to all phones — along with a huge loadout of customization features.

I’m usually pretty lazy when it comes to customizing my home screens. For the most part, I tend to stick with the stock launcher on whatever phone I’m using, and I don’t go over-the-top tweaking absolutely every setting on my home screen.

Yet with the discontinuation of the Google Now Launcher, I’ve been on the  [Read More…]

This is (probably) the LG V30

Surprise: On the outside, it’s pretty much a bigger, curvier G6.

LG looks set to follow up the well-received G6 with a new member of the big-screened V series, and noted leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka @onleaks on Twitter) has teamed up with MySmartprice to reveal a full 3D render of the device, based on CAD specs given to accessory manufacturers.

The design shares many common elements with the G6, with notable changes including 2.5D glass on  [Read More…]

Motorola is hosting an event on July 25 in NYC, Moto Z2 Force probably incoming

While the Moto Z2 Play was unveiled last month, we were still left waiting for a flagship product from Motorola. A few days ago a press renders showing the Moto Z2 Force for AT&T leaked online and we speculated the handset will be making an appearance soon. And it seems we were right. Motorola has […]

Netflix adds Dolby Atmos support, but you probably can’t use it yet

Netflix is adding Dolby Atmos support, but it’s not coming to Android or Chromecast anytime soon.

It’s often said that video streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video and even YouTube focus too much on video enhancements at the expense of audio. As we’ve moved from 1080p to 4K to HDR to wide color gamut, we’ve remained stubbornly adherent to audio standards that are approaching 10 or 15 years old.

Netflix wants to change that with the  [Read More…]

Your unlimited plan is probably ripping you off: How much data Americans actually use

The numbers are in and you probably don’t need an expensive unlimited data plan.

Unlimited data plans are back. Here’s some insight into why that happened as well as a look at how much data we really use every month.

We’ve recently seen all four major U.S. carriers introduce or revamp their unlimited LTE data plans. Multiple times. For some of us, this is great news: The folks who use upwards of 10GB of data on a  [Read More…]

Andy Rubin’s Essential phone will probably launch with 360-degree camera (acessory)

As you probably know by now, Andy Rubin – one of the co-creators of Android – has a startup which will soon unveil a new premium smartphone called Essential. The announcement should happen next week (on May 30). And in order to build up the hype for the product – which will supposedly arrive to […]
