The iPhone vs Galaxy war forces 5G phones to start cheap

The iPhone vs Galaxy war forces 5G phones to start cheap

Within the next year, there's a good chance you'll want a new iPhone with 5G connectivity. Or a new Samsung Galaxy smartphone with 5G connectivity - or some other brand. Given the brand dominance of those two companies in the smartphone realm, it's statistically sound to suggest that there's a good chance you'll chose a phone from one of those two brands.

Huawei Mate X 1st-gen foldable appears to break, too

Huawei Mate X 1st-gen foldable appears to break, too

In 2019, Samsung Galaxy Fold early review unit display-breaking issue got a lot of press. Other companies like Huawei seemed to delay their own foldable display-toting devices as a result - better to reinforce in the meantime than to have a first-gen disaster, right? Now, after originally delaying their release from a planned June 2019 to an ultimate November 2019 exclusively in China, the Huawei Mate X's launch is... also not so hot.

PinePhone Linux phone starts shipping Friday for the brave of heart

PinePhone Linux phone starts shipping Friday for the brave of heart

The dream of a truly free as in speech, open source smartphone running Linux has never truly died. It just took on various forms and suffered numerous setbacks along the way. Last year, however, it seemed that the dream is finally close to becoming reality, with both the Purism Librem 5 and the PINE64 PinePhone declaring shipping dates. The Librem 5 had a rocky head start and now it's the PinePhone BraveHeart edition's turn to try convincing the world that a Linux phone for consumers is not such a bad idea after all.

Pixel 2 finally gets Live Caption, sideloading required

Pixel 2 finally gets Live Caption, sideloading required

The Pixel 4 may have been a dud rather than a bang when it came to hardware but, as with other Pixels before it, Google has more or less made up for it in terms of software. In addition to the usual AI-based camera tricks, the Pixel 4 flaunted a few features that, technically speaking, is part of the general Android 10 release. That includes Live Captions, which is now available on all Pixel phones except, of course, the now unsupported OG Pixel.

Google Advanced Protection can now use Android, iPhones as security keys

Google Advanced Protection can now use Android, iPhones as security keys

Having a Google account can open up doors to not just Google's own services but third-parties that use its single sign-on feature as well. That makes it even more tempting for hackers to compromise such an account and potentially pilfer critical and even risky personal information. Google's Advanced Protection Program aims to harden Google accounts from such attempts and it is now making it dead easy to set up one as long as you have an Android phone or even an iPhone.

OnePlus foldable phone isn’t going to happen anytime soon

OnePlus foldable phone isn’t going to happen anytime soon

OnePlus' much-publicized philosophy is to never give its customers a subpar or expensive experience exchange for new, fancy features that won't benefit anyone. The company has stuck to that except when it doesn't, like when it did remove the headphone jack just in time for it to launch its own wireless earbuds. It still hasn't yielded ground to wireless charging, at least not yet, and it seems that the latest trend it is saying no to is foldable phones.

Google Play Store will no longer tell you when apps are done updating

Google Play Store will no longer tell you when apps are done updating

Notifications are the bane of mobile life and numerous tools and articles have been made to help people get them under control. Many apps and mobile platforms themselves actually have functionality to turn off or at least dial down such notifications but the mere inertia needed to configure them has, unsurprisingly, turned many away. Now Google is taking matters into its own hands by removing one of the Play Store's update-related notifications though the end result might still be debatable.

Google Phone app could implement call recording soon

Google Phone app could implement call recording soon

Recording phone calls is a very touchy subject. On the one hand, it definitely has practical uses, especially when recording phone interviews or meetings. On the other hand, it also raises a few privacy concerns. The latter may be one reason why Google hasn't provided an official feature on Android to record calls but, based on some Google Phone app analysis, it might slowly be working towards finally fixing that long-standing problem.

nubia Red Magic, Xiaomi Black Shark jump on the high refresh rate train

If you're tired of all the talk about foldable displays or even notches, don't worry, there seems to be a new trend on the way. Although not completely new, screens that boast of refresh rates higher than the normal 60 Hz have, until recently, been the arena of gaming smartphones. With OnePlus' announcement of its own, Samsung-made 120 Hz Fluid Display, it seems that its competitors like ZTE's nubia and Xiaomi's Black Shark will be joining the fray soon as well.
