Samsung TV Plus streaming app comes to some Galaxy phones

It's no secret that Samsung wants to build its own empire that encompasses nearly every aspect of modern life. With its hands inside the consumer electronics cookie jar, it is almost close to achieving that dream but falls a bit short when it comes to the content for some of those devices. It doesn't have its own entertainment arm yet, unlike Sony or Apple, but its Samsung TV Plus is as close it has gotten. Now that streaming service is coming to its smartphones but you will need one of the company's most recent and most expensive to get it.

OnePlus 8T 120Hz screen confirmed, pricing leaked

Being the contrarian that it is, OnePlus has always resorted to less traditional and less rigid marketing methods to promote its products or events. That includes pretty much confirming some of the features and details of a new smartphone ahead of its release. It's still sticking to that strategy, confirming one of the OnePlus 8T's special features. But if an unofficial detail is also correct, that could actually cause a bit of resentment for some OnePlus 8 Pro owners.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G could help send 5G mainstream

Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G could help send 5G mainstream

Qualcomm today announced the Snapdragon 750G, which appears to be the successor to the 730G with a major upgrade: 5G support. The 750G will take its place alongside Qualcomm's other 5G-capable 700-series SoCs, and given the numbering, it'll probably be a little less powerful than other chips in the series. Still, Qualcomm is touting some fairly big improvements over the 730G, so the 750G should be a pretty capable SoC.

Royale FlexPai 2 is the affordable foldable you can’t get

Royale FlexPai 2 is the affordable foldable you can’t get

While Samsung largely dominates the foldable phone market, with Huawei now taking a backseat and Motorola's Razr successor nowhere yet in sight, it can't really claim to have been the first. That title belongs to Chinese OEM Royale whose FlexPai was quickly pushed to the background after a few months in the limelight. With the FlexPai 2, it's trying to reclaim some of that prestige through a pricing game that, unfortunately, may not matter that much to markets outside of China.

Xperia Play 2 prototype makes you wish Sony never gave up

Perhaps even more than Samsung, Sony has a handful of businesses it could tap to improve its smartphones. It had display, imaging, entertainment, and gaming chops but, for one reason or another, including infighting and sibling rivalry, it never fully exploited those avenues. Once upon a time, however, it did dare with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. That popular "PlayStation Phone" was left without an heir but an alleged prototype has now popped up to show Android and Sony fans what could have been.

Galaxy S20 FE teaser and leaked promo aim for shutterbugs

Samsung doesn't usually give its non-flagship phones much fanfare, except when for a few models that it launches in certain markets like India. With its upcoming "Unpacked for Every Fan", however, Samsung seems to be making quite a big fuss over it, even though most probably already know what it will be announcing there. It seems that Samsung is making more than just a big fuss and is reportedly making a big bet on the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition's success.

OnePlus 5 and 5T updates blocked by a serious, unfixed bug

OnePlus 5 and 5T updates blocked by a serious, unfixed bug

OnePlus has always prided itself on never settling for the status quo, be it in the pricing of its devices or its commitment to regular and timely software updates. It hasn't exactly been perfect in those promises but it can't be faulted for not trying. There has been some discontent, however, among owners of the 2017 OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T over the lack of updates since May and now the company is coming clean on its silence and, unfortunately, it's not all good news.

Surface Duo proves to at least be somewhat durable

The dual-screen foldable Surface Duo may hold promise but its current execution has left many giving it an uneasy thumbs down. While there has been a lot of criticism over the state of its software, most reviewers have actually been rather impressed by the quality of the phone's design. But will that design stand up to the test of time and back pockets, an important question to be asked of a $1,400 phone? Fortunately, we have JerryRigEverything to test that for us without finding out the hard way ourselves.
