OnePlus 6 and 6T Android 10 Beta goes live

OnePlus 6 and 6T Android 10 Beta goes live

With the buzz going on around the OnePlus 7T, it's not really surprising if owners of the company's previous models feel a bit left out. That has always been the complaint about manufacturers but OnePlus has always painted an image of its self as a rebel and a non-conformist. Hot on the heels of the OnePlus 7T's debut, OnePlus promised that even the OnePlus 5 will get its turn with Android 10 but, at least for now, it's the OnePlus 6 and 6T's turn first.

OnePlus 7T durability test will have your reaching for the included case

OnePlus 7T durability test will have your reaching for the included case

JerryRigEverything might soon have a problem when it comes to its durability tests for smartphones. Over the years, mobile devices have wised up to the usual problems in structural integrity and fewer phones today are as bendable as the iPhone 6 was. Of course, from time to time, some interesting phone lands on Zack Nelson's table that has the Web talking again. That's often the case with "unconventional" phones like the Galaxy Fold or even the OPPO Find X. Who would have thought, then, that the OnePlus 7T would actually have a different story to tell as well.

Samsung gives Note 10 and S10 security advice as it preps fingerprint fix

Samsung gives Note 10 and S10 security advice as it preps fingerprint fix

By now, you've probably heard of a worrying flaw with the ultrasonic fingerprint readers present in the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy Note 10. When using some third-party screen protectors on either phone, the fingerprint reader can apparently grant access to fingerprints that weren't previously registered. Obviously, that entirely defeats the purpose of securing your phone with a fingerprint in the first place, so it goes without saying this is something that needs to be fixed.

Samsung promises fix for flawed fingerprint security on these flagship 2019 phones

Samsung promises fix for flawed fingerprint security on these flagship 2019 phones

Earlier this week, news of a particularly troubling flaw with the Galaxy S10's ultrasonic fingerprint reader broke. Apparently, phones that had certain third-party screen protectors installed could potentially accept fingerprints that weren't previously registered to the device. This, of course, means that someone who isn't you could gain access to your phone, and that's never a good thing.

Pixel 4 snubbed 5G because Google isn’t convinced it’s time yet

Pixel 4 snubbed 5G because Google isn’t convinced it’s time yet

The Pixel 4 has almost all the staples of a late 2019 flagship phone except for two things. It strangely missed out on the Snapdragon 855+ but even more strangely skipped adding 5G support. For a company that lives and breathes the Internet and a major proponent of pushing communication technology forward, that is an almost glaring omission. It turns out, the tech giant isn't at all impressed at the rollout of 5G networks in the very few countries that even have it.

ASUS ROG Phone 2 teardown reveals one critical flaw

ASUS ROG Phone 2 teardown reveals one critical flaw

Gaming smartphones are designed for a niche market but many of them actually offer the same high-end features of regular flagships at almost half the price. ASUS' second stab at that market is perhaps the one exception. Yes, it does have one of the best combination of specs this year but the $900 price tag might scare off some mobile gamers into the arms of its rivals. Perhaps more damning, however, is the revelation of the ROG Phone II's one weakness, making it not only an expensive investment but also a risky one.

Pixel 4 new Google Assistant requires Gesture Navigation

Pixel 4 new Google Assistant requires Gesture Navigation

One of Android 10's new features is its full gesture navigation system. While it definitely improves on the initial implementation in Android 9 Pie, some users may not be completely sold on it yet. Some might even find it physically difficult to swipe and swipe and hold around. Pixel 4 owners, however, may not have much choice, that is they want to use the all-new Google Assistant. It turns out, Google is locking them into using Gesture Navigation, regardless of how they call the powerful AI assistant.

Galaxy Fold 2 could feature world’s first under-display camera

Simply based on rumors, the Galaxy Fold 2 could be the most ambitious phone to come to the market. Either that or it will eclipse its predecessor as Samsung's biggest embarrassment. Samsung is seemingly putting some of the most novel and most experimental features ever known in the industry, not even including the foldable screen itself. The latest word is that Samsung's next foldable phone will be its and the industry's first phone to have a camera under an unbroken and hole-free screen.
