Huawei lockscreen ads were a mistake only because it was premature

Huawei lockscreen ads were a mistake only because it was premature

Huawei has been painting itself as a victim of great injustice in the past weeks after it had been slammed by a US trade ban. Last week, however, it became the villain when its phones started serving ads on their lockscreens. At first Huawei's US PR team denied any such activity. While it now owns up to the error, it might only be because its actual plans have been revealed ahead of schedule.

Cellebrite UEFD Premium boasts it can unlock any iOS or Android device

Cellebrite UEFD Premium boasts it can unlock any iOS or Android device

Most of the rhetoric in tech these days revolve around privacy, especially when it comes to smartphones and data on the cloud. Manufacturers and platform makers are, at least in public, committed to thwarting attempts to break into users' phones but, almost ironically, one of the most persistent threats aren't criminals. Governments are just as interested in breaking their way into mobile devices, often for the stated sake of law enforcement, and Cellebrite is only too happy to have them as buyers of its new UEFD Premium system.

Motorola One Action looks more premium than company’s flagship

The Moto Z series was supposed to be Motorola's flagship series, touting its best technologies and features. And yet not only did the Moto Z4 feel like a rehash of the practically deprecated Moto Mods system, it also sported mod-range specs. Those looking for Motorola's best might have to turn to the upcoming Motorola One Strong that at least looks like a phone from 2019. Even better, it runs a pure Android One OS, too.

Hot Wheels ID x Apple Store is the Tickle Me Elmo of 2019

Hot Wheels ID x Apple Store is the Tickle Me Elmo of 2019

I can't say for sure - because nobody knows for sure - but I'm calling it right now: Hot Wheels ID just stole Christmas. Using a bit of the magic summoned by the Apple x Anki Overdrive remote control car toy collaboration and some established-brand PR power - plus some features over which kids will likely flip their lid - Hot Wheels ID just struck gold. Again, I'm just making some informed guesses here - but take a look and see what you think.

2019 iPhone cases will highlight what Apple will try to hide

It seems that square camera bumps are in. At least if you ask Apple and Google. Although Huawei can perhaps be credited/blameed for starting that trend but few probably expected the two biggest tech companies to follow. And even fewer probably expected both Apple and even Google would put the unusual design on the corner. And yet that is exactly what will happen in a few months though Apple is believed to use some magic to make those two to three cameras nearly invisible. Unfortunately, case makers will put the focus back on them instead.

Dota Underlords is a standalone Dota 2 Auto Chess game

There always comes a time when fans of a gaming franchise creates a mod that proves to be equally or even more popular than the original.

Valve has just fully revealed Dota Underlords, its own take on the Dota 2 Auto Chess mod that's taking the market by storm.

Galaxy Note 10 coming in late August with slim bezels

The Galaxy Note 10 was at the center of controversy because of some of the changes that Samsung will allegedly be introducing in this year's S Pen phablet. Fortunately for Samsung, it seems that Google has now taken the spotlight with the Pixel 4. It seems that we won't have to wait long to finally see what the Galaxy Note 10 has in store but, at least based on this new leak, it might not be all that bad if super thin bezels are your thing.

MSI App Player now lets you play Android games on PCs at 240 fps

Mobile gaming is a big thing these days but while nearly everyone has a smartphone, not everyone has a gaming-worthy smartphone. There might also be times when you simply can't play on your smartphone when you're busy on your computer. And there are also times when you'd want to have more than one phone to run two instances of the same game.
