Huawei P40 Pro revealed in massive leak

Nokia 5.3 brings the circle at a much lower cost

Nokia 5.3 brings the circle at a much lower cost

The Nokia 5.3 was revealed today at the same time as the Nokia 8.3 5G. The 8.3 is a larger smartphone for a significantly larger price, while the Nokia 5.3 looks a whole lot like the larger device, but costs less. The big differences are there - the display is smaller, there are fewer pixels in the display, the display has a water drop notch instead of a punch hole notch, but the back looks very similar. Does that mean that the Nokia 5.3 is a shocking sort of deal?

Report: iPhones are a bad investment, Android phones doubly so

Much like investing in an automobile, smartphones lose value as soon as you drive them off the car lot. With the exception of rarities and some vintage bits of tech, smartphones of all sorts lose value over time. A report this week from a smartphone resale company showed data suggesting that Android smartphones lose their value at twice the rate of iOS smartphones - aka iPhones.

OnePlus 8 5G: on Verizon at last?

OnePlus 8 5G: on Verizon at last?

A new OnePlus launcher release was analyzed this week by intrepid software developers who discovered some interesting clues about the company's future. Inside the code for this launcher app were found several references to Verizon-specific OnePlus devices. One appeared with the code name "OnePlus8VZW" - which could mean more than one thing, but it appeared just before "OnePlus8TMO" - which pretty much seals the deal.

The time appears to be nigh!

The most important question here is the following: Will the iPhone SE2 be both cheap and worthy?
