Next Samsung Galaxy phone has removable 4500mAh battery

Huawei Watch GT 2 Review: Similar experience, bigger battery

Huawei Watch GT 2 Review: Similar experience, bigger battery

The Huawei Watch GT 2 is a smartwatch that runs the company's own mobile operating system Lite OS. It does not run Google's Wear OS, and it's not exactly like what Samsung has with their smartwatches running Tizen. This watch looks a lot like most smartwatches released over the past several years, with a few watch faces built-in, a few sensors under its hood, and a decent display. But here's the kicker: It's got the battery life of your average tablet.

OPPO Reno 2 Review: full-screen display, 4x camera power, and a trade-off

The OPPO Reno 2 (or OPPO Reno2 if you like) is an interesting piece of hardware.

Pixel 4: Why no earbuds in the box is a good thing

The Google Pixel 4 doesn't include a pair of earbuds in its box, no headphone jack, and no 3.5mm headphone adapter for USB-C. My first reaction as a tech news reporter and reviewer of products is to cry foul! We've come to expect that we'll get certain things when we buy a smartphone, and those expectations are being changed for us, right before our eyes! But there's a bright side to some of this.
