OnePlus 5 vs everyone else: where the upstart stands

The OnePlus 5 has finally broken cover and, with that, we are almost through this year's expected roster of flagship smartphones. While still waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the LG V30, the Moto Z2, and, of course, the iPhone 8, we can take stock of what we have so far and see how they measure against the smartphone that's promised to "Never Settle".

Huawei sort of owns up to P10, Mate 9 storage tech debacle

As fast as smartphones might be, the one part of them that is relatively slow is the internal data storage. Most smartphones still use the old eMMC type storage, considered one of the slowest. A few OEMs now use the faster UFS storage, which some companies have used as a bragging right. One such company is Huawei, who has been advertising the fast storage tech on its Huawei P10 and even Huawei Mate 9 flagships. That is, until it was caught actually using the older eMMC on some models.

That hardware has now arrived in the form of the HiKey 960, a Raspberry Pi-like board developed, surprisingly, by Huawei, with some help and approval from Google.

Although there are definitely exceptions, it's quite difficult these days to come up with an original smartphone design. It has become a race to who gets to put it out publicly, with the rest left to be called imitators. Sometimes even thieves. Those will probably be the accusations and criticisms that Huawei sub-brand Honor will face when it puts out its next flagship, dubbed the Honor 9. Because, as early as now, based on an uncorroborated leak, it's already being called a Xiaomi Mi 6 copycat.
