Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 8 has already leaked in press renders this week and now the detailed specs of the device have also been leaked online. Coming from the ever reliable @evleaks, the Galaxy Note 8 will feature a 6.3-inch QHD+ Infinity Display with a resolution of 1440 x 2960.
Motorola recently launched the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus in India. These new budget handsets from the Lenovo-owned Moto are meant for first-time or casual smartphone users and come with beefy batteries to ensure they easily last through a day. In typical Moto style, the Moto E4 and E4 Plus run on a near-stock build of Android Nougat. However, this does not mean that they don’t come with plenty of hidden features. Plus, there are always a few tips and tricks that you can use to get the most out of these handsets.
There are numerous superlatives that could be levelled at the new HTC U11. It’s super-speedy, it takes superb photos, it’s virtually ‘stock’ (Android), the display’s fabulous… and it’s a great mirror. Not electronically, through the selfie camera – the back of the U11 itself is effectively mirrored, reflecting colours and details from whatever’s in front of it. Which at least makes the unadorned phone stand out in a crowd, even if it’s the lady opposite you on the tube checking that her hair looks OK…
The OnePlus 5 is a modest upgrade over the OnePlus 3/3T except for the camera department. The Never Settle company has gone all in on the camera of the phone and included a dual-camera setup that is similar to that of the iPhone 7 Plus.
After much testing of the new OnePlus 5, this flagship is all about balance. Every manufacturer has to juggle specifications, hardware design constraints and component prices in order to bring the product home at just the right price yet without compromising performance. And OnePlus has proved itself something of a master at this in the past, with the ‘5’ fitting right into the same pattern. The headline omissions from the aforementioned juggling are the use of ‘only’ a 1080p screen, the lack of official waterproofing, and the single loudspeaker, plus there’s a dubiously specified dual camera. But more on these below in my full OnePlus 5 review…
The OnePlus 5 is out following months of leaks and hype surrounding it. Successor to the OnePlus 3/3T, the OnePlus 5 is packed to the brim with top-notch internals including a dual-camera setup at the rear, a Snapdragon 835 chipset, and 6/8GB RAM.
The Always On Display functionality on the Galaxy S8 and S7 remains one of my favorite features of the device. Samsung had first debuted this feature with the Galaxy S7 in 2016 and has kept refining it since then.
Manufacturer customized versions of Android have been a pain for purists since time immemorial. One reason for that is because they end up delaying Android software updates. But despite all the hate that Android gets for this, haven’t these manufacturer tweaked flavors like Samsung’s Grace UX or Xiaomi’s MIUI contributed anything meaningful?
A month after launching the Redmi 4A, Xiaomi launched the Redmi 4 in India earlier this week. The Redmi 4A is Xiaomi’s cheapest handset in India, while the Redmi 4 is the successor to the company’s incredibly popular Redmi 3S.
Last year, Samsung managed to sell its flagship handset — the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge — in excess of 45+ million units and that was despite the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7. This year, if the early impressions of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are anything to go by, Samsung is on track for another bumper year.
