After the success of Moto G5 series last year, Motorola debuted its Moto G6 series earlier this year. The series so far contains the Moto G6, Moto G6 Play, and the Moto G6 Plus. The handsets focus more on design and camera rather than their internal specifications. Nonetheless, this does not mean that they do not pack more horsepower than their predecessors.
The OnePlus 6 has turned out to be a huge hit for OnePlus selling 1 million units in just 22 days of its launch. While previous OnePlus phones were also good, the OnePlus 6 manages to set the bar even higher with its stunning design, great camera, and display. What’s impressive is that OnePlus has truly managed to include some flagship features on its flagship killer this time around.
Ever since Apple debuted Face ID with the iPhone X last year, Android OEMs have been in a race to copy face unlock on their devices. The feature has already made it to plenty of mid-range Android devices that cost 1/3rd of the iPhone X. Vivo also jumped onboard with the Vivo V9, its latest flagship handset.
Last year, Google and Xiaomi took everyone by surprise by unveiling the Mi A1, a budget mid-range Android smartphone under the Android One brand. This meant that the handset runs on a near-stock build of Android minus Xiaomi’s MIUI which the company has heavily invested in.
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Note 8 are filled to the brim with plenty of features and customization options. But for some reason, something as simple as setting a custom ringtone on the handsets is a complex and convoluted task.
The Moto G5 series was easily among Moto’s most popular smartphones launched in 2017. The handsets ticked with customers due to their stock Android experience which offers a very simple to use UI and top-notch performance.
Over the last couple of years, Xiaomi has launched some extremely popular handsets in India like the Redmi 4/4A, Redmi Note 4, Redmi Note 5, and the Redmi 5. They are all excellent handsets by all means and they rightfully deserve all the praise they have been getting. However, I have had one common issue with all of Xiaomi handsets: poor proximity sensor performance.
Samsung has packed the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ to the brim with features. And I am not talking about just hardware features but software ones as well. You will find plenty of features to play around on your Galaxy S9. Surprisingly though, there’s one very basic feature missing from the handset: call recording.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are among the best flagship handsets released this year. Packed to the brim with features, they run on Samsung’s latest Experience UI which has been further improved since it first debuted on the Galaxy S8 with new features and enhancements. However, these improvements have ended up making a simple task of setting up a custom ringtone or notification sound on the handset pretty complex.
One of my favorite features of Samsung’s Experience UI is the ability to customize the system font type. While most OEMs do allow users to change the system font size on their devices, Samsung is the only one that allows users to change the font type as well. This stands true for its latest flagship handset: the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.
