OnePlus Nord N100 may have a 90Hz screen after all

OnePlus made a name for itself with its "Never Settle" slogan, referring to its promise to bring top-notch features that its bigger competitors offer at a much higher price. Of late, that included the now common trend of giving smartphones screens with fast refresh rates, from 90Hz to 120Hz to even 144Hz. Last year, OnePlus committed to make that feature a staple on all its future smartphones but now it seems it has briefly flip-flopped when it came to its super affordable OnePlus Nord N100.

OPPO Find X3 to capture, store, display images in 10-bit color

Smartphone trends come and go. At one point it was all about the screen, these days the focus is on cameras. There is, however, one thing that binds some of these trends together, one that is also sometimes inconsistent across the same phone. Given how smartphones are highly visual and image-oriented devices, it's a fact that color plays a critical role in delivering a quality experience. That's the kind of experience that OPPO is aiming for with the Find X3 that will put an emphasis on color quality and accuracy from the moment you snap up a photo to the time you display it on screen.

Galaxy S20 FE touchscreen issues persist after three updates

It is almost the perfect compromise between features and price but the Galaxy S20 FE's otherwise stellar package is marred by one persistent problem. Reports about touchscreen issues go back as far as last month, just after the Fan Edition finally became available to fans.

These pixel-dense OLED displays could solve VR’s big headache

When it comes to virtual reality displays, the screen door effect is a very real concern for manufacturers. The screen door effect gives certain displays a mesh-like appearance that's particularly noticeable when lower resolution displays are viewed up close, so while it can happen with any display, it's most prevalent in the world of VR. Stanford researchers have announced new tech that could result in OLED displays with pixel densities as high as 10,000 pixels per inch, thereby eliminating the screen door effect even when the display is viewed up close.

BenQ EW3280U Review : Gaming, movies, good for all

The BenQ EW3280U doesn't have a punchy name, and it doesn't roll any sort of flashy borders or big logos. Instead, the BenQ EW3280U is made to provide a solid monitor that's worth what it'll cost.

Galaxy S21 might not have under-display camera, delayed to Galaxy Z Fold 3

Samsung has managed to check off a few items on its to-do list, from under-display fingerprint scanners to foldable displays. There is still one item, however, that remains elusive and might not yet see the light of day anytime soon.

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Tab S7 hit by green tint bug

Samsung's mobile devices have always been praised for their displays, thanks to the company's prized Super AMOLED panels. This year, however, Samsung may have lost that prestige, at least for some owners of its high-end Galaxy S20 phones that have started to exhibit random green tinting on their screens. Unfortunately, that case is far from solved and has only become even more mysterious now that even the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and both Galaxy Tab S7 models have reportedly exhibited the same green sickness.
