Take a few hardware compromises to get the software you really want.

LG used the IFA 2018 trade show to announce its first-ever Android One phone — and it did so with the least amount of fanfare possible, simply dropping a press release.

Even if you’re careful about avoiding sketchy apps, there’s not much you can do if your smartphone has malware built in. That’s actually the case with many smartphones sold in developing markets.

Research from Upstream Systems found that such devices might ship with data-stealing apps pre-installed.

OnePlus 5T no longer being sold in North America

After four months on the market, OnePlus has run through its entire stock of OnePlus 5T smartphones for North America. The upstart Chinese company practices business a little differently than its competitors, relying on buzzy marketing strategies, rabidly loyal fans, and limited production runs for one device at a time. When the stock of a device is depleted, that’s the end of the line.

For OnePlus, the success of the OnePlus 5T is an important vote of confidence from the  [Read More…]

This past holiday season, there’s a good chance you either bought or received a smart speaker of some sort. Amazon’s been dominating this space since the first Echo Dot came out in 2016, but with the launch of the Google Home Mini in late 2017, Google finally had its own ultra-cheap speaker to get inside as many people’s homes as possible.
