Casio EX-FR200 combines 360-degree camera with “split” design

Ring Stick Up Cam Review: Solar-powered security

Sony Xperia X Performance climbs to #1 (or 3) in DxOMark

HTC and Sony seem to have some things in common as far as smartphones go. Both have put out strong looking 2016 flagships that, on paper, looked commendable. Both, however, seem to have problems backing that up with solid sales numbers. On a positive note, both also happen to be at the very top of DxOMark's smartphone camera list.

DxOMark shows how the Huawei P9 stepped up its camera game

Huawei is quite proud of its Huawei P9 flagship. Proud enough to hire high profile actors Henry Cavill and Scarlett Johansson to, just for a few minutes, root for the smartphone. Of course, the highlight of the device is it camera. Or cameras rather, one in full color and one in monochrome, certified by famed German camera maker Leica. Fortunately for Huawei, its investment paid off. At least that's what DxOMark is showing with its side by side comparison of the Huawei P9 and its predecessor, the P8, demonstrating how far the Chinese OEM has come in taking digital photography seriously.
