OnePlus foldable phone isn’t going to happen anytime soon

OnePlus' much-publicized philosophy is to never give its customers a subpar or expensive experience exchange for new, fancy features that won't benefit anyone. The company has stuck to that except when it doesn't, like when it did remove the headphone jack just in time for it to launch its own wireless earbuds. It still hasn't yielded ground to wireless charging, at least not yet, and it seems that the latest trend it is saying no to is foldable phones.

Google Play Store will no longer tell you when apps are done updating

Notifications are the bane of mobile life and numerous tools and articles have been made to help people get them under control. Many apps and mobile platforms themselves actually have functionality to turn off or at least dial down such notifications but the mere inertia needed to configure them has, unsurprisingly, turned many away. Now Google is taking matters into its own hands by removing one of the Play Store's update-related notifications though the end result might still be debatable.

Pokemon GO maps, scanners, trackers, PokeVision alternatives still active today

The best way to find new Pokemon in Pokemon GO is to head out and walk - BUT - assuming you live in the proverbial Arctic Tundra here in the winter of 2020, you might be seeking alternatives.

Huawei P40 leaked renders show off rear and front-facing cameras

As 2019 came to a close, we saw a number of leaks and reports concerning the upcoming Huawei P40 and its beefed up brother, the P40 Pro.

Google Phone app could implement call recording soon

Recording phone calls is a very touchy subject. On the one hand, it definitely has practical uses, especially when recording phone interviews or meetings. On the other hand, it also raises a few privacy concerns. The latter may be one reason why Google hasn't provided an official feature on Android to record calls but, based on some Google Phone app analysis, it might slowly be working towards finally fixing that long-standing problem.

nubia Red Magic, Xiaomi Black Shark jump on the high refresh rate train

If you're tired of all the talk about foldable displays or even notches, don't worry, there seems to be a new trend on the way. Although not completely new, screens that boast of refresh rates higher than the normal 60 Hz have, until recently, been the arena of gaming smartphones. With OnePlus' announcement of its own, Samsung-made 120 Hz Fluid Display, it seems that its competitors like ZTE's nubia and Xiaomi's Black Shark will be joining the fray soon as well.

It seems that Google is trying to further bridge the gap between Android and Chrome OS, making the latter the OS to rule them all without actually merging them. This is especially the case with the upcoming Chrome OS 80 version which is getting some key features that improve the web-based platform's Android support. The latest addition brings something that is both familiar but also divisive among Android users: full gesture navigation.

As we move closer to the announcement and launch of the foldable flippable phone, more details are starting to come in and, based on this latest pair, the Galaxy Z Flip might indeed offer an overall better experience than its predecessor.
