Get ready for the worst kind of 2010s throwback: long, horrible phone names

Of all the trends from the early 2010s we could resurrect, why did have to be these abominable phone names?!

My very first Android phone was a Samsung Captivate Glide. I called it Soarin. I had to; calling it the Captivate Glide just felt ridiculous.

Your long wait for the Mate 30 Pro may finally be over in November

The Mate 30 series will start at €799.

Despite holding a flashy launch event for its newest flagships in Germany last month, Huawei shied away from announcing a European release date for the phones. That was a particularly striking omission, especially since the phones’ pricing was in Euros. It was, no doubt, a result of the company’s ongoing spat with the U.S. government, and its apprehension about releasing a flagship device in Europe sans Google services.

Amazon has finally made its 2019 event official, and it will  [Read More…]
