Moto E4 Plus Review : The Never-ending Battery

The Moto E4 Plus Review we've got on deck today rolls through the basics of its hardware and software and offers judgement on its overall value. While the hardware is decent - especially for this price - it's within the long-lasting battery that this device truly shines.

Sharp AQUOS S2 is basically every new phone combined

This phone has a full-faced display, with minimal bezels, and a forward-facing camera set in its forehead. It also has a pair of cameras on its back lined up vertically, and a set of odd colors in casings to choose from. It's as if Sharp saw the playbook for every major smartphone brand and said, "yes, let's do ALL of this."

A new leak of Google Pixel 2 confirms our deepest fear

An anonymously tipped confirmation and Google Pixel 2's latest leak suggests that our fear of a dying feature was real. This is the worst thing that's ever happened to wires in the history of the world. The wire I want to use - the ONE wire I want to use, will not be compatible with the next Google Pixel device, if these images are accurate. This I cannot abide.

iPhone 8 design leak: can Android phones compete?

The age of the full frontal display is here, and Apple is the one to bring it about. Or that's what the company will have you believe, if their marketing department brings the iPhone 8 out the way they should.

LG V30 images released in leaks, front and back

The most definitive look at the LG V30 seen thus far comes from a series of videos posted this week to HitRecord. This is a collaborative video site promoted by celebrity Joeseph Gordon Levitt - though that might have little to do with the phone itself. The devices we see today are pretty much leaking the entirety of the phone itself - or at least its looks, both front and back.

The iPhone 8's latest set of photos show what's supposed to be a third color in the assumed two-color lineup.
