Watch our Huawei P10 + P10 Plus video review!

Huawei is big in China, and growing the West. In the past twelve months, it’s gone from being that one company that made great hardware but could never seem to get the software right, to being able to legitimately compete with more established brands in Europe.

So in 2017, the new P10 phones are tasked with building on that momentum, while also competing with what’s to come from Samsung and Apple. In our video review of the 5.1-inch Huawei  [Read More…]

Galaxy S8 expected to improve camera capabilities with 1000 fps video

More camera details surface prior to the launch.

The soon-to-launch Galaxy S8 will offer ridiculously high frame rate 1000 fps slow motion video capture, according to new reports. That’s over four times the frame rate of the Galaxy S7’s 240 fps video, and even a hair more than Sony’s upcoming Xperia XZ Premium with 960 fps.

Video: Watch LG engineers tear down an LG G6

It’s easy to forget just how much of a marvel of engineering modern smartphones are. A modern flagship like the LG G6 is the culmination of years of design engineering effort, bringing an expansive feature set and a ton of computing power into a tiny form factor.

So it’s always fun to watch gadgets like these being torn apart, and seeing how everything on the inside fits together. That’s exactly what we were able to witness at LG HQ  [Read More…]

Watch Bluboo Dual fingerprint sensor control music, video, and more

Fingerprint sensors are fast becoming a standard in Android phones, thanks largely to the native support in 6.0 Marshmallow. While many associate the tech with security for logging in or making purchases, a fingerprint reader can be used for other features, too.

HTC U Ultra Video Review

For years, the name HTC was synonymous with solid smartphones. If you bought a high-end HTC, you knew you were getting a classy metal chassis, slick and sporty software, and better audio than any other smartphone. But the company’s reward for all that quiet consistency was a customer base that slowly evaporated as its competitors cleaned up. So last year it shook things up a little with the well-received HTC 10. And this year, everything’s different — except the  [Read More…]

The LG V20 is just $499.99 at B&H Photo Video right now

Here’s a great deal on a great phone.

In our comparison between the LG V20 and Huawei Mate 9, I said both phones are fairly comparable in terms of performance, while the V20 has the edge in the camera department and the Mate 9 tops the battery tests. But my conclusion was that, if you are buying the phone outright, the $ 599.99 Mate 9 is the way to go, since the V20 costs around $ 200 more.

OnePlus’ #LickOfLove Valentine’s Day video will definitely make you cringe

OnePlus shows off the “world’s most lickable smartphones.”

OnePlus has a history of making questionable ads. The company’s earlier efforts were downright sexist and understandably caught a lot of flak, following which the brand turned its attention to videos that at least showcased its products.

For Valentine’s Day, OnePlus is bringing back the cringe factor with its #LickOfLove contest, through which you’ll be able to win two customized OnePlus 3Ts. While the contest itself is straightforward,  [Read More…]
