OnePlus 5 will also get Android 10 but not soon

OnePlus 5 will also get Android 10 but not soon

OnePlus started out as the rebel that refused to settle for the status quo. Initially, that applied to the combination of hardware and prices but the once small startup wants to make sure everyone knows that "Never Settle" also applies to the entire Android experience, including updates.

Unfortunately, owners of those phones will have to wait for their turn at Android 10.

The media frenzy around the Galaxy Fold has seemingly died out a bit. The jury is already out with the verdict and while Samsung's redesigned foldable phone is indeed stronger than the first, it's still a fragile expensive piece of technology.

Motorola One Macro is one Motorola you won’t mind not being able to buy

Motorola is a name that stirs up memories of good old times but it seems that nostalgia is all that the company is worth these days. In the smartphone market especially, Motorola has failed to come up with new models that will enrapture consumers beyond certain one-hit wonders. Instead, it seems to have resorted to what other OEMs are doing and flooding the market with multiple variants of the same theme. The latest in that lineup is the Motorola One Macro and while it might never see a wider release outside of India, very few might mind that at all.
