Weekly Poll Results The Huawei Mate 40 Pro Can Be A Hit Depending On The Specifics Of Its Launch

Last week’s poll shows that Huawei’s new phones can stand on their own feet, even without the Google software ecosystem. However, there are several factors that will impact how the new models will perform in the market place. We gave the Huawei Mate 40 Pro its own poll as this one will first get a global release – units will be available in Europe next month. About 20% of voters are ready to grab one as soon as local stores open sales. Slightly more people are interested, but think that the €1,200 price tag is too steep. There’s still time before pre-orders kick in, so maybe Huawei will...

Hot Take Oneplus Nord N10 And N100

OnePlus isn't what it used to be - as the market changes the company evolves to try and adapt better. Its phones slowly turned from flagship killers to actual premium flagship phones. Sure, they are still undercutting many of the competition based on MSRP, but store prices are usually close enough so as not to make a difference. And while OnePlus matches the competition in the display and design and its software is a favorite to many it often fails to impress with camera quality. However, we are not here to talk about flagships. Instead we will focus on the just launched Nord series -...

Motorola Moto G 5g Popsup Online Running A Snapdragon 750g 5g Chipset

When Motorola announced the rhythmically-named Moto G 5G Plus back in July, it was pretty apparent that a vanilla Moto G 5G should eventually follow. Now we seem to have the scoop on a Moto device, codenamed “Kiev”, allegedly coming to market as the Moto G 5G. The original source on this is somewhat sketchy. But seems to mostly check out. Motorola Moto G 5G leaked shot Apparently the Moto G 5G will be based on the new Snapdragon 750G chipset – a promising part that offers 5G support, including mmWave and AI noise suppression at a budget price point. The exciting silicon already...

Samsung Highlights Some Of The New One Ui 30 Android 11 Features

One UI 3.0 builds are well into public beta at this point. Galaxy S20 family devices in both the US and Germany, signed-up for the program are already running test Android 11, One UI 3.0 ROMs and in a more-recent development, so are US Note20 units. A new page has now gone up on the company’s official Malaysian website, highlighting some of the major new additions and changes in One UI 3.0. Probably the biggest news on there, however, is in the small print below the images, that promises a November launch for One UI 3.0. Samsung is yet to officially unveil a list of supported...

Micromax In 1a Phone Teased In Video Ahead Of Launch

Micromax is making a return to the India smartphone market, with a launch already set for November 3. We are still a bit short on hardware specifics and even the exact models of the upcoming In phones are not officially confirmed. However, most rumors seem to point at a pair of devices, allegedly called the Micromax In 1 and In 1A. One with a Mediatek Helio G35 chipset and the other with a G85 one. Beyond all of the official teasers, at least one of the new phones has now popped-up in the wild, in an first-look YouTube video, featuring Micromax co-founder Rahul Sharma. Mr. Sharma...

Google Pixel 5 Teardown Video Offers A Bit More Context For The Screen Gap Issue

Google’s latest and greatest Pixel 5 has started to slowly make its way onto the market, with first impressions and reviews from media and the community already revealing some issues with the device. Pixel-related hardware issues have pretty-much turned into an industry meme at this point, with basically every generation getting heat in one way or another. Call it a self-fulfilling prophecy if you want, but the Pixel 5 didn’t manage to break the cycle. Reports of screen gap issues have started popping-up here and there. What better way to actually take a closer look at what is...

The phone is available as part of Yahoo Mobile's unlimited phone service.

Apple Iphone 12 Pro In For Review

Our review of the iPhone 12 is already up, but we've also been spending some quality time with the more premium iPhone 12 Pro. But while the review team is still doing its thing here go a few early thoughts. The iPhone 12 Pro certainly makes a better first impression than the iPhone 12. For starters the frame isn't aluminum but stainless steel. It feels better too and it's shinier. The rear glass is nicer to touch too, thanks to its matte finish (the regular 12 gets a shiny one). Finally the iPhone 12 Pro gains 25 grams on the regular 12, making it feel denser and more...

Sunsets, sunrises, wide vistas and aquamarine waters give ample evidence of another leap forward in mobile photography.

We dropped and scraped the iPhone 12 to find out how much the new "ceramic shield" screen can handle. Spoiler: It's a lot more than a six-foot drop.

Oneplus 8t Updated To Oxygenos 11023 With Small Changes

The OnePlus 8T is getting its second software update since launch. The company is now rolling out OxygenOS 11.0.2.3 for all three regions (US, EU, and India). If you haven't received the update yet, it should be available in the next week or so. The 11.0.2.3 update is largely for fixing some of the issues reported in the previous version. It optimizes the system power consumption and reduces heat generation. There also seemed to have been an issue with icons not displaying correctly on the homescreen that have been fixed. There are also some fixes to Bluetooth and the Gallery app and...

Tmobile Announces Lg Wing Is Coming To The Carrier Launched Bogo Deal

The Wing 5G is coming with support for T-Mobile's low-band (600MHz) and mid-band (2.5GHz) 5G networks. To boost sales of the LG Wing, T-Mobile is offering a BOGO (buy one, get one free) promotion for anyone who purchases two LG Wing 5G smartphones from the carrier. Although promotions from US carriers usually require customers to add a line or trade in an eligible device, T-Mobile really...

Iphone 12 Cameras Can Be Replaced Only By Official Apple Technicians

Back when Apple added a fingerprint reader to the iPhone 5s, it made it impossible to replace by anyone other than an authorized technician. That makes some sense – a bogus reader may circumvent security. But over the years more and more components have become difficult to replace. During its teardown and testing of the iPhone 12, iFixit found that taking the camera out and replacing it with an identical module from another phone causes issues. And not just the error report you get when you swap screens (“Unable to verify that this iPhone has a genuine Apple display”). No, this looks...

Lgs Latest Earnings Report Shows Signs Of Life For Mobile Division

Earlier today, LG posted its earnings report for the July-September period and results from the mobile division are looking promising. Operating income from mobile was listed at KRW 1.52 trillion ($1.34 billion) - a 17% quarter on quarter increase in sales. Despite this, the mobile division is still operating at a loss - $124.9 million for Q3 which is down from the $169.1 million loss in Q2 2020. LG saw improved sales figures across major markets in North and South America. The LG Wing, Velvet and Q51 were listed as the key smartphones for LG in the past quarter. Increased production...

Shot On Oneplus 8t Stop At Nothing

The tagline for the OnePlus 8T launch was “Ultra stops at nothing”, now the company has tapped actor/writer Kalki Koechlin to expand on that message in a spoken word poetry format. The video below was written by Koechlin and shot on an 8T. You can also follow the Source link for how OnePlus is handling the eventful year that 2020 turned out to be and how it wants to help the community do the same. The recently launched Open Ears Forum in India asked the question “How do we use OnePlus devices and OxygenOS in a time like this to minimize distractions and maximize productivity?” The...

Snapdragon 875 Could Be 25 Faster Than Its Predecessor Leaked Antutu Result Shows

The Snapdragon 875 chipset is code-named “Lahaina” and it may be significantly faster than expected – an early benchmark shows a score of over 847,000 points in AnTuTu. This is much higher than its predecessor, which currently tops the charts with 663,000 points or so. That’s a jump of over 25%, a huge leap for a yearly upgrade. Of course, these results will need to be corroborated before the Qualcomm team can pop the champagne. For comparison, the iPhone 12 scored 565,000. While the Kirin 9000 and Exynos 1080 posted scores of 696,000 and 693,000, respectively – enough to top...

One is all about retail stores, the other is all online -- right? Actually, there's more to it than that.

Pixel 5 Gets 120 Points In Dxomark Test An Average Score

Google Pixel 5’s main camera uses the Sony IMX363 – the same sensor that the Pixel 3 and 4 used. And it’s lacking the Pixel Neural Core as apparently the Snapdragon 765G has enough processing power to handle the Google algorithms that are behind the success of the Pixel cameras. Still, there’s only so much that can be done given the old hardware and lack of a third camera – there’s no zoom camera this time (last year, it was the ultra wide cam that was MIA). DxOMark gave the phone an overall score of 120, an improvement over the previous generation but not enough to get it out of the...

Ft Companies Can Resume Supplying Huawei With Smartphone Components

The siege on Huawei may be easing off a bit – at least as far as its mobile division is concerned. The Financial Times reports that companies will be able to supply Huawei with components for non-5G uses. More specifically components that won’t be used in the company’s 5G networking equipment. “It has been indicated to us that chips for mobile devices are not a problem,” says an executive from an Asian semiconductor company. Samsung Display already has a license and Mr. Lee, an analyst at Jefferies, writes that Sony and OmniVision have been given the green light to supply Huawei with...

iPhone 13 Could Come With 1TB Of Storage

Apple’s iPhone storage currently caps out at 512GB and there is no way to expand on it as the iPhones do not support storage expansion via microSD cards like some Android phones do.  However, for those who feel that 512GB is still not enough, you might want to keep an eye out for the iPhone 13.This is because according to Jon Prosser, he claims that Apple could introduce a 1TB […]

Mophie’s New Juice Pack Connect Will Work With Pretty Much Any Smartphone

Back in the day, Mophie’s battery cases were limited to specific smartphone models.

Honeymoon Period Between Apple And Foxconn Could Be Over

While Foxconn is a massive company that helps other companies manufacture and assemble their products, it’s safe to say that the company is usually associated with Apple.

Canon Could Be Working On A Lens Attachment For Smartphones

Lens attachments for smartphones aren’t new, but oddly enough, traditional camera makers have shied away from this particular market segment.

The patent isn’t exactly new as […]

Some Claim The iPhone 12’s Frame Is Too Sharp And Are Cutting People’s Hands

When Apple announced the iPhone 12, they revealed that the phone comes with a brand new design. It features flat edges around the phone similar to the design of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5.

There is a lot of confusion surrounding Apple’s new MagSafe charger. Apple claims that the device allows users to charge the new iPhone 12s at speeds of up to 15W, twice the charging speed compared to regular wireless charging on current iPhones.

OnePlus Nord N10, N100 Announced For The US

iPhone 12’s LiDAR Scanner Can Measure A Person’s Height

In recent years as Apple’s iPhones gained more augmented reality features, Apple also developed an app called Measure that allowed users to measure the dimensions of an object, like a table, a cabinet, and so on.

The iPhone 12 Drop Test Is Painful To Watch

With the new iPhone 12s, Apple introduced what they are calling Ceramic Shield, which is a new type of glass cover that they claim is 4x tougher than its predecessors. We’d hate to find out for ourselves if this claim is true, but the good folks at EverythingApplePro decided to put it to the test via a series of drop tests.These tests can hardly be called scientific since there are […]

Oddly enough, this mute feature was kind of limited.You could never mute chats indefinitely, either choosing from a few hours, a week, or […]

This App Lets You Install Google Services Onto Huawei Phones

As many of you know, Huawei’s more recent smartphones do not come with Google Play Services installed on them due to the company being on the US Entity List.

It’s called Googlefier and […]

MagSafe Charges Older iPhones At Insanely Slow Speeds

At its core, Apple’s new MagSafe charger is really a wireless charging system. While it was designed for the iPhone 12 in mind, Apple does note that it will charge older iPhones that support wireless charging technology, but even then, it seems that even if you own an older iPhone, MagSafe might not be for you.This is because according to a video uploaded to YouTube channel Max Tech, it was […]

Woman Spends $3,000 On In-App Purchases, Then Sues Apple Over It

Apple does not allow gambling apps to exist on the App Store.

Google Reportedly Paid Apple As Much As $12 Billion To Be The iPhone’s Default Search

If you were to launch Safari on your iPhone or iPad and type a search query into the address bar, there’s a very, very good chance that it will default to Google.
