Huawei P20 Pro teardown shows Steve Jobs’ wisdom stuck

Inside the Huawei P20 Pro is proof that the industrial designers behind the phone were extraordinarily talented. With such a strange amalgamation of parts in this smartphone, it must have been difficult to arrange its innards in an aesthetically pleasing way. Not that this was Huawei's primary goal, but they've succeeded nonetheless.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro Review: A great phone jumping through hoops

Huawei Mate 10 Pro Review: A great phone jumping through hoops

Huawei has been making a lot of noise this year about its Android flagships, most recently making a pitch to oust the iPhone X or Galaxy S9 from your pocket with the P20 Pro. Weirdly, though, that phone isn't officially coming to the US. Instead, Huawei's flagship here is a different smartphone from a different family: the Mate 10 Pro. It has the same processor as the P20 Pro, but no notch and one less camera sensor. It also comes with a more affordable price tag.

ZTE Iceberg gets 2x notches and 4x glass corners

ZTE Iceberg gets 2x notches and 4x glass corners

The ZTE Iceberg is a concept design designed by ZTE - officially. I say this first because the design is so bonkers, it looks at first as though it wasn't meant to be seen by the public. OR, it looks like a design student was asked to create the most daring design they could imagine still seeing the production floor. Either way, the details here deserve a once-over.

Leap Motion’s AR headset looks insane, but could be miraculous

Leap Motion’s AR headset looks insane, but could be miraculous

This week we're having a peek at what Leap Motion is bringing to the table for augmented reality. We've seen them create some unbelievable pieces of technology before - especially when it comes to motion tracking and control. Now it would appear as thought they're jumping into the augmented reality universe face-first.

Xperia phones have a hidden 120Hz screen mode you won’t want

Xperia phones have a hidden 120Hz screen mode you won’t want

The iPhone X and the Razer Phone have one thing in common despite being worlds apart. Both have the ability to run the screen at a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Apple markets this feature for responsiveness. Razer puts it at the service of fluid gaming visuals. Either way, it seems that it’s a rather niche feature that very few phone makers would bother with. It turns out, however, that Sony has had phones capable of that since 2016. You just can’t, and probably shouldn’t, enable it easily.

Xiaomi-backed Black Shark phone take a page for Switch book

Xiaomi-backed Black Shark phone take a page for Switch book

The moment Xiaomi acknowledged it has invested considerably in Black Shark to create a gaming-oriented phone, the rumors started to fly like crazy. We’ve already seen and debunked one that presented a phone with permanent gamepad controls on each end. Now a new one paints an even more interesting, more ambitious, and almost more unlikely picture. According to a leaked photo, that first Black Shark gaming phone will have removable Bluetooth controls. In other words, an Android Nintendo Switch-alike.

Essential rolls out update, lackluster PH-1 camera acknowledged

Essential rolls out update, lackluster PH-1 camera acknowledged

Essential might have tried to pull a Google in more ways than one. After all, it did have Android creator Andy Rubin behind it. It shipped a pretty Android phone unencumbered by bloatware of any kind. It was almost perfect, except for one thing that has become critical to today’s smartphone market: the camera. Thankfully, Essential isn’t as deaf as some might think it is and promises to do better in the next Essential phone, whose launch is still unknown at this point.

LG G7 ThinQ leaked up closer

LG G7 ThinQ leaked up closer

A number of photos have leaked showing the next LG flagship smartphone, the LG G7 ThinQ. While the name is... bonkers... the device seems to roll right. This smartphone has a case on it to disguise its full body, but the basics appear to be all in place, including a massive full-screen frontside. With a notch, of course, just like basically every other hero smartphone this year seems to have.

You might see this massive machine at your Walmart soon... very soon.

OnePlus 6 specs we expect via OPPO R15

OnePlus 6 specs we expect via OPPO R15

We've got our review of the Oppo R15 up this morning, and something seems familiar. Familiar, that is, if we've paid attention to the leaks of the OnePlus 6 that've appeared so far. OPPO and OnePlus are part of the same organization and they tend to follow some predictable patterns. Take, for example, the OPPO R11 and the OnePlus 5. They look pretty gosh-darned similar, don't they?

OK Google voice detection is still listening

OK Google voice detection is still listening

I just read about a user of a Galaxy Note 8 whose update to Android Oreo re-activated "OK Google." Or at least it seemed as though OK Google worked again after he'd previously turned off Voice Detection in settings via the Google app. This can certainly happen - but not necessarily for the reasons you might think. It's probably just a mistake, right?

OnePlus 6 can’t help copying iPhone X

OnePlus 6 can’t help copying iPhone X

These days, it seems like a lot of new and upcoming Android phones are sporting a very familiar notch at the top of the display. Though Apple's iPhone X wasn't the first phone to utilize a notch as a solution to including front-facing sensors on a phone with a full screen display, it has certainly sparked a number of imitators in the time since its release. Today we're learning that the upcoming OnePlus 6 may borrow another popular feature from Apple's latest flagship: Gesture controls.
