Moto Z3 Play vs. Moto Z2 Play: Should you upgrade?

Relax, you probably don’t need to upgrade just yet.

BlackBerry KEY2 vs. BlackBerry KEYone: Should you upgrade?

The price you pay for loving KEY.

The BlackBerry KEY2 didn’t have to overdeliver — it just had to deliver. Instead, BlackBerry Mobile listened to the complaints leveled against the first-generation KEYone and managed to address nearly every one of them. There’s something to be said about that.

At the same time, the two phones are remarkably similar in their design and intention, and that narrow focus may — in fact, it certainly will — limit its  [Read More…]

HTC U12+ vs HTC U11: Should I upgrade?

Today HTC announced its latest flagship effort, the HTC U12+. The company has clarified it has used the “+” to mark that there’s not going to be a plus version in the future. Unlike last year, when the HTC U11 was followed a few months after by the U11+.

The U12+ is actually the spiritual successor of the U11+, but given that the latter never launched in the US, we’re going to treat the newcomer as the U11’s replacement instead.

OnePlus 6 vs. OnePlus 3T & OnePlus 3: Should you upgrade?

Still rocking the OnePlus 3/3T? It’s time to switch to the OnePlus 6.

OnePlus 6 vs. OnePlus 5T: Should you upgrade?

The OnePlus 5T is still a fantastic phone, so should you consider making the switch to the OnePlus 6?

OnePlus has followed a six-month release cadence over the last couple of years, introducing a new device in the summer and following it up with a refreshed variant with upgraded internals around November. The OnePlus 5T, for instance, retained the same design aesthetic as the OnePlus 5 while ushering in an 18:9 panel.

OnePlus 6 vs. OnePlus 5: Should you upgrade?

Is it time to continue with the one-year upgrade cycle?

OnePlus has a rapid release cycle for its phones, iterating roughly every six months to get the latest specs and features in your hands if you’re willing to pay the price. But if you’re locked in on a once-yearly refresh, then you’ve likely held onto your OnePlus 5 — and now, just shy of a year on, the OnePlus 6 is here to entice you once again.
