OnePlus 6 vs. Samsung Galaxy S9+ camera comparison: Closer than you’d think

Does an extra $ 300 buy you a much better camera?

We’ve already compared the OnePlus 6 to the Galaxy S9+ in general, and found the OnePlus 6 to be a formidable opponent to Samsung’s latest despite a $ 300 difference in price. But with the history of OnePlus phones having mediocre cameras and Samsung phones having great cameras, it’s a good idea to hone in on photography in particular.

OnePlus made a huge leap in camera  [Read More…]

What do you think about a notch on the Pixel 3 XL?

It’s (maybe) coming.

Earlier this week, a leaked picture made its way around the web showing panels for the front of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

The panel for the regular Pixel 3 shows an 18:9 ratio with much slimmer bezels compared to the Pixel 2, and with the Pixel 3 XL, we’ve got that infamous notch.

We can’t confirm how legit/fabricated this leak is, but a notch on the Pixel 3 XL isn’t unlikely  [Read More…]

What do you think about the T-Mobile + Sprint merger?

Now that we’re officially living in a T-Mobile + Sprint world, the wireless industry in the United  [Read More…]

T-Mobile is bringing back the Sidekick, but it isn’t what you think

T-Mobile rolls out the world’s first Smartshoephone.

The T-Mobile Sidekick was an iconic product that introduced a slide-out screen, and now the carrier is bringing back the name. The T-Mobile Sidekicks are the world’s first Smartshoephone, and T-Mobile is leveraging a “Step into Something Amazing” foot-first design to bring the capabilities of your smartphone to your feet.

Snapchat’s new Snap Map does exactly what you’d think

See what’s happening around the world on Snapchat.

Snapchat has introduced a new feature called “Snap Map” that does exactly what you’d think it does: shows you Snaps, on a map. You can move and zoom the map from city level all the way up to global level to see where people are, and you can see hot spots where multiple people are at the same place sharing.

To those who think you don’t need a screen protector on the Galaxy S8

It’s one of the oldest questions in smartphones.

Phone screens have gotten larger, and at the same time quickly lost all protection from the bumps and scrapes of daily life. The Galaxy S8 is probably the best example of just how vulnerable a piece of glass can be — with curved edges and no real bezels to protect.

Sure there’s Gorilla Glass 5 on front, which is supposed to provide some scratch protection, but that doesn’t mean  [Read More…]

Everyone has a list of things they hope to see in Android O. Some make a lot of sense and there’s a good chance we’ll see them, others are just pipe dreams. But now that the time for a new version of Android to be announced is getting closer, the guessing games can begin!

The death of bezels isn’t as great as you think

A lack of bezels sure makes a phone look better, but does it affect usability?

I’ve been lucky enough to use an LG G6 for the past three days, and it’s great. The phone is well-built, it’s fast and stable, the extra-tall screen is wonderful, and it’s compact. So compact, in fact, that LG claims it fit a 5.7-inch phone into the same physical space as a typical 5.2-inch device from another company.
