    on November 17, 2018 at 10:36 pm

    OnePlus announced its mid-cycle release: the OnePlus 6T in a New York event last month where the company announced that the OnePlus 6T was arriving to T-Mobile in the United States. We were also expecting to hear about a purple variant of the phone though there wasn't a single mention of it at the event. Just about a week later, OnePlus announced an exclusive color for the Chinese market: Thunder Purple, during a Chinese launch event. Only for OnePlus to announce (exactly a week later) that the Thunder Purple finish was arriving to all markets. The variant is now available in North... […]

    on November 17, 2018 at 7:10 pm

    The Xiaomi Mi Laser Projector is now available in the US through Walmart, priced at $2000. It's an ultra-short throw projector that can be placed between 5 and 50cm away from the wall, and is capable of producing in image up to a 150 inches in diagonal in 1080p resolution. Xiaomi promises up to 5,000 lumens of brightness and 3000:1 contrast. With all of that in mind, the price isn't half bad. That said, importing one from China through other channels could potentially save you some bucks, but you're left to deal with customs and there's the matter of warranty, or the lack of... […]

  • Security flaw discovered in Instagram's 'Download Your Data' tool
    on November 17, 2018 at 5:40 pm

    Instagram has come forward to users informing them that as a result of a security flaw their passwords could have been exposed. An Instagram spokesperson has said to The Information that the issue was 'discovered internally and affected a very small number of people'. The security flaw lies in the 'Download Your Data' tool, which was devised to comply with the EU GDPR regulations. For some users it could have included their password in the URL of the link they've been sent to, um, download their data. If they were on a shared computer, that link would have exposed their password to people... […]

    on November 17, 2018 at 4:50 pm

    Samsung's latest Galaxy Watch has been out for a few months, but last year's Gear Sport and the Gear S3 from 2016 are still available. Not only that, they're on sale in the US. Samsung itself and major retailers B&H and Best Buy will knock $100 off the regular price of the wearables so the Gear Sport will cost you $180, while the Gear S3 goes for $200, Frontier or Classic. Most of us around here have been struggling to find much use for a smartwatch or at least enough so to outweigh having to charge yet another thing on a regular basis. If you're okay with that, however, maybe... […]

    on November 17, 2018 at 3:15 pm

    A previously unheard of vivo phone has been spotted on GeekBench - the vivo 1817. The existing vivo Y93 goes by v1818 internally, and the new model appears to be similar to that, minus one - it's certainly got 1GB RAM less than the Y93 base model's 3gigs. One of the vivo v1817 entries on GeekBench The vivo 1817, which will inevitably get a more marketable name when it goes official, is powered by a Qualcomm chip with an octa-core CPU, and it's likely the Snapdragon 439 you can find in the Y93/Y95 models. The 1817 also runs on Android 8.1 Oreo like its Y brethren. So far that's... […]

    on November 17, 2018 at 12:00 pm

    Huawei has applied for FCC certification for the P Smart (2019) and the papers reveal some of the smartphone's specs. The most important one is the battery capacity - the 3,320mAh cell in the new model marks an increase from the existing P Smart's 3,000mAh capacity.

Single and dual SIM variants will be available and 32GB and 64GB storage options are in the works. In any case, there will be 3GB of RAM on... […]

    on November 17, 2018 at 9:55 am

    Android 9.0 Pie has started rolling out to the LG G7 One in Canada, one user reports on XDA Forums. The firmware comes in at 800+ megabytes and includes the November security patch and camera functionality improvements. Mind you, we're talking about the G7 One, which is part of the Android One program and therefore runs on stock Android, so updates should be quick and easy.

  • US SenateTRACED bill aims to end non-stop robocalls
    on November 17, 2018 at 5:00 am

    The current situation of robocalls in the United States has blown way out of proportion. Personally, I receive at least six robocallers per day. Some are recordings, some are silent callers to see if a line is active or disconnected, and others really, really want to help me reduce my imaginary student loans. Sometimes, I'll reject a robocall and then it will call right back. three times! A new bill was drafted up by US Senator John Thune of South Dakota and Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts. The bill is called the TRACED (Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence) Act... […]

    on November 17, 2018 at 3:21 am

    We've heard of the possibility of Google announcing a mid-range Pixel device but we weren't really sure when. There were a couple of codenames that were mentioned in an APK teardown: Sargo and Bonito. These are both the names of sea-dwelling creatures like the previous codenames that Google has used for both Pixel and Nexus devices in the past. Today's new leak reveals much more about a mid-range Google phone thanks to some new leaked photos released by Rozetked, the same website that had its hands on the Google Pixel 3 XL and released a full-hands on video over a week before the official...

  • iPad Pro 11 gets put through scratch, burn and bend testing
    on November 17, 2018 at 1:00 am

    Apple recently launched an entirely redesigned iPad Pro line, in two sizes - 11" and 12.9". The smaller of those has now undergone the usual durability testing from YouTube channel JerryRigEverything. It's unusual for Zack to do this for a tablet, but the results are very interesting nevertheless. The iPad Pro 11 costs about as much as an iPhone XR, so in the grand scheme of Apple's devices it's quite reasonably priced. However, it seems like the company spent all of its focus on making it as thin as possible and forgot to add in some structural stability as well. While the tablet's... […]
