Xiaomi double folding phone could steal Samsung’s thunder

Xiaomi double folding phone could steal Samsung’s thunder

2019 is not only the year of punch hole camera cutouts, it could also be the year of the foldable phones. Of course, not all OEMs will be able to jump on that trend, unlike with cutouts, but those that do will be racing for the best possible foldable design. Samsung’s way is, of course, just one and it seems that Xiaomi already has its own version in the works. And if it manages to pull it off, it could very well steal the spotlight. Especially if it comes with the company’s usual pricing strategy.

LG waves goodbye to touch, hello to 5G at MWC 2019

It isn’t dropping any hints about its rumored foldable or modular dual screen phone but LG has practically confirmed two things it will be revealing next month. While it’s almost a no brainer that it will be talking about the 5G buzzword as well, LG’s invitation to its MWC 2019 press event seems to confirm rumors that it will have a smartphone that won’t require you to touch it or even speak to it just to use it.

Moto G7 photos, specs leaks tell all

Moto G7 photos, specs leaks tell all

Not all smartphone users are after the greatest and most expensive handsets money can buy. Many are perfectly fine with a serviceable and affordable smartphone that will hopefully last them throughout the day. For them, mid-range phones like the Moto G series could be more than enough. But while Motorola’s G phones have once been hailed as the best bang for buck mid-tier phones you could get, leaks of the Moto G7 models suggest this year might disappoint fans.

Pixel 3, Galaxy Note 9 top new DxOMark selfie benchmarks

Pixel 3, Galaxy Note 9 top new DxOMark selfie benchmarks

DxOMark has always prided itself for being the benchmarking experts not just for digital cameras in general but even more for smartphones. They have become so popular that OEMs have even started using them in their marketing. But throughout the years, DxOMark has avoided testing one of the most important uses of a smartphone. That has finally changed and it is now benchmarking how front cameras perform for selfies, bokehs, and even video recording.

In 2019, consider no Galaxy S10 or iPhone XI

In 2019, consider no Galaxy S10 or iPhone XI

Consider skipping the most expensive phones this year, looking instead to up-and-coming brands with lesser-known devices. Not because it's the cool thing to do, but because we've reached the concentration point. We're at a point where Samsung is battling Apple, and Apple hasn't made any major changes to their iPhone since iPhone X. If you want to continue using your smartphone the way you use it right now, by all means buy a Galaxy S10 or iPhone XI. If you want to try something new, consider something else.

Honor View 20 detailed: Here’s why it’s special

This afternoon the Honor View 20 was revealed in full, officially, with details that let us know the Honor brand means serious business.

The back side - well - the back side is something altogether new - it's dazzling.

Vivo Apex 2019 may be the most beautiful phone ever

Vivo Apex 2019 may be the most beautiful phone ever

Today some images of the Vivo Apex 2019 were leaked - or revealed on purpose - before the official launch of the Vivo Apex 2019. These images showed the device to look, at first, like a smartphone without a frontside camera and with a near-full-coverage front display. The back was silver, with two camera lenses and an LED flash - also, no buttons appeared on the sides, the top, or the bottom.

Galaxy S10 benchmarks lower than iPhone XS: why it doesn’t matter

Galaxy S10 benchmarks lower than iPhone XS: why it doesn’t matter

Even before it's officially launched, the Galaxy S10 is already earning mixed "reviews". And we're not just talking about controversial punch holes and in-screen fingerprint scanners here. The past few days have witnessed the appearance of benchmarks for both the Galaxy S10 as well as its processors, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and Samsung Exynos 9820. The numbers vary depending on the source but one thing they all seem to have in common is that they fall below the iPhone XS and Apple's A12 processor. As disappointing as that may sound for Android and Samsung fans, in the end, those benchmark scores really don't matter.

LG, Xiaomi, Huawei, Sony to fight for attention at MWC 2019

Being the Mobile World Congress, it’s only natural to see so many smartphone and accessory makers show off their stuff that week. Most of the time, however, they try to steer clear of each other to maximize their time on stage. But whether it’s by accident, intention, or fate, it seems that at least three of the big smartphone makers will be making their announcements on the same day, which could overwhelm both event participants and onlookers as well.
