OnePlus 3 Review Part 4: Answering your Questions (Q&A)

This week we've been answering your questions on social media about the OnePlus 3 in our extended review series. Today we're publishing a number of questions - especially the ones that've come up more than once - in an effort to make our answers more easily accessibly for everyone. This is part 4 of our ongoing review series with the OnePlus 3, the third generation device from the folks at OnePlus, a group of people obsessed with delivering a smartphone that's both inexpensive (sort of) and able to compete with the top-tier smartphones on the market today.

Gvido uses a pair of e-ink screens to display sheet music

Gvido uses a pair of e-ink screens to display sheet music

A new e-ink product has surfaced called Gvido, but it's not for novels. When closed, the device looks like a large, thin book. When opened, it reveals two cream-colored displays, both of which show sheet music for musicians. Much like the older Kindle devices, the musician merely pushed the right edge of the device to trigger a page refresh, replacing the two sheets of music with another two.

Hyperkin Smart Boy ships December 1, can be preordered now

The Hyperkin Smart Boy has excited gamers since its appearance early last year — the demand for it to be made into a real product was so great that the company proceeded to do so, and we got our first look at the real-deal product at E3 this week. Coming on the heels of that appearance is the option to preorder the device, as well as an estimated availability date: December 1 of this year.

OnePlus 3 Review

OnePlus 3 Review

The OnePlus 3 is a phone that competes with the finest smartphones on the market today at almost every level. Why might you want to buy one? Because it might be a slightly smaller amount of cash to purchase than a device with almost identical features. How is this device different from its competitors? It looks slightly different and acts slightly differently. Also, you won't have to wait for a code to get the "opportunity" to buy one this time around.

Project Scorpio official: Xbox One with better everything (and Oculus Rift)

Project Scorpio official: Xbox One with better everything (and Oculus Rift)

This morning Microsoft introduced us to Project Scorpio, an Xbox console that they suggest will be more powerful than any console that's come before it. Of course, you might be saying, why would it not be more powerful than any console before it? That's true - but they're making a pretty big deal of the fact that they're making a machine that far exceeds the specs of the previous model - and the device they revealed in the interim - the Xbox One S.

Apple Pay on the web official: aimed to take on Paypal

Apple Pay on the web official: aimed to take on Paypal

This morning Apple confirmed that they'd be releasing Apple Pay to the web. This system will work with stores across the web, allowing users to bypass systems like Paypal for handling their online cash. They began this proposition at WWDC 2016 with an absurd picture of a woman holding an iMac up to pay for a coffee at a coffee shop - which makes the most sense. Of course Apple Pay on the web will only work with Safari.

iPhone 7 (and iPhone Pro) in dark blue before WWDC

iPhone 7 (and iPhone Pro) in dark blue before WWDC

This morning a couple of images have popped up showing the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro in a fancy new Dark Blue color. These are renderings, of course - not that that in and of itself would discount them from being real. They're made by Martin Hajek, illustrator and 3D modeler, and artist notorious for making devices look real using schematics leaked before product launches. These dark blue-colored iPhones show basically what this same illustrator has shown before - but they're just so smokey smooth now.

Today Motorola jumps in on the modular smartphone business with their own take: Moto Z Droid with Moto Mods.

Lenovo Tango phone “PHAB2 Pro” release date and details

Lenovo Tango phone “PHAB2 Pro” release date and details

With the Lenovo PHAB2 Pro, the company becomes the first to detail a consumer-aimed Google Tango smartphone. This is the technology we've been demoing and hypothesizing about for months - even years - now come to a device that, fingers crossed, will be released in September of 2016. This device's implementation of Tango technology allows it to use motion tracking, depth perception, and area learning to know not only what it can see, but where it is in 3D space at any given time.

Nexus Player may be coming back as a (lightly) refreshed model

Nexus Player may be coming back as a (lightly) refreshed model

It appears the Nexus Player is dead, but maybe its fate isn't as definite as many thought. Some new documents from ASUS were recently filed with the FCC that show a device featuring the same ID as the past Nexus Player, but with some minor changes -- things like updated circuit system components, a lower gain antenna and other things that presumably need the FCC's approval.

2017 Nexus phone leak spills Huawei’s involvement

2017 Nexus phone leak spills Huawei’s involvement

The next Google Nexus Android device may well be made by Huawei, as rumored - so says an interview with Huawei. The real oddity comes in the Gearburn chat writer Hadlee Simons has had with Charlene Munilall, general manager for Huawei’s Consumer Business Group in South Africa. There, Gearburn suggests, Munilall offered up word that Huawei is "doing the Nexus again this year, by the way." Whether or not that confirms the device itself is still up for debate - what's a bit more solid is the details of the device that's already - sort of - on the market.

Galaxy Note 6’s key details leaked in Taiwan (x2)

Galaxy Note 6’s key details leaked in Taiwan (x2)

This week a rather interesting - and fitting - feature has been leaked (or rumored, rather) about the Galaxy Note 6. This device has also been tipped to be re-named Galaxy Note 7, to match up with the number on the Galaxy S7 this year, but we'll just have to wait and see - for now we're sticking with the 6, as it follows through. The rumor today suggests two things. One, that there'll be a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Edge. Two, that this variant of the Galaxy Note will have a dual-lens camera setup.
