Razer Phone 2 hands-on preview: Same game, better phone

The second-generation Razer Phone is just as good at gaming, and better at being a phone.

Although flawed in execution, the original Razer Phone wasn’t hopelessly bad. It was a good idea in need of further refinement. Razer had a silky 120Hz display, but daylight visibility was so poor that outdoor use was painful. It had a dual camera system, but with photo quality that’d be embarrassing on a phone half the price. Plus it was missing table-stakes  [Read More…]

After years of feedback, Google has fulfilled its promise of a consistent Assistant across phones and Google Home.

Once upon a time in 2016, Google announced their next foray into a connected home and an AI assistant with the Google Home featuring Google Assistant.

The Mi Mix 2S gets a DxOMark score of 97 — the same as the iPhone X

DxOMark says the Mi Mix 2S renders “some of the smoothest files” in low-light, with the camera holding its own next to the Pixel 2 and Galaxy S9.
