How’s your Pixel 4 battery life?

Let’s chat with the AC forums.

Ever since Pixel 4 reviews started coming out last week, there’s been a lot of commotion regarding the phone’s battery life. While the Pixel 4 has an excellent camera package, display, and software experience, a lot of this is held back by the fact that the phone can barely make it through a full day of normal use.

This poor battery performance isn’t all that surprising considering the small 2,800 mAh  [Read More…]

How’s the battery life on your LG G7?

3,000 mAh of mixed reviews.

The LG G7 has all of the makings of a 2018 flagship. There’s a large 18:9 screen with a notch, Snapdragon 845 processor, minimum 64GB of storage, and Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.

Thankfully, the state of the Essential Phone is much different in April of 2018 compared to when it first launched. Essential’s released  [Read More…]

A big update for some aging phones.

Depending on the carrier and version of the phone, it’s been between a few weeks and a few days since your Galaxy Note 5 or Galaxy S6 series phone was updated to Nougat.

The update, surprisingly, brings Samsung’s 2015-era phones largely to feature parity with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S8 — barring any hardware-specific variances — and updates the Samsung Experience UI to the company’s blue-and-white color palette that  [Read More…]
