Galaxy Z Fold 3 drop tests prove Samsung’s boast again

Galaxy Z Fold 3 drop tests prove Samsung’s boast again

It has been about a month since the Galaxy Z Fold 3 first landed in consumers' hands. The jury is already out, and Samsung's latest and greatest foldable has had mixed but mostly positive reviews. One aspect of the device that very few reviewers dare to test out is the device's durability, mostly because of the $1,800 price tag attached to it. Fortunately, there are a few that do take the plunge and try to confirm or refute Samsung's claims about the phone's durability.

Galaxy S22 leak says smaller display, sleeker body

The Samsung Galaxy S22 leaks are in full tilt this fall as we've finally jumped over the leak mountain that was the iPhone 13. The Samsung Galaxy S22 family of devices is tipped this week to appear with a newly invigorated effort to cut down edges and ramp up the glory of the all-important front-facing display. With foldable devices attempting to steal the spotlight, the Galaxy S22 needs to go all-out to keep the flat display in fashion.

After iPhone 13: The new tech coming in 2022, 2023, and 2024

Over the next few years, the iPhone will see some significant changes. This year's iPhone 13 didn't exactly make major waves when it came to upgrades VS last year's model lineup. According to high-level Apple product predictions released this week, the changes will come in the years 2022, 2023, and 2024 in the form of punch hole front-facing cameras, under-display Touch ID, and foldable smartphones from Apple.

OnePlus 9T not to be: Tradition changes now

OnePlus 9T not to be: Tradition changes now

OnePlus announced this week that they're changing the way they do business when it comes to regularly scheduled smartphone model release. Over the past couple of years, OnePlus has been moving away from the single-phone release setup, where one device would appear early on in the year, then another with a "T" in its name would appear later. It might've been a long time coming - especially given the origin of the letter "T".

Microsoft’s Surface Duo 2 5G surprise may have just been spoiled

Microsoft’s Surface Duo 2 5G surprise may have just been spoiled

It's a big week for Microsoft, as the company is slated to host an event on September 22nd in which it will discuss Windows 11 and some upcoming devices. Microsoft didn't name the devices it will have on hand when it announced this event, but there's been plenty of speculation to make up for the lack of official details. We're expecting to hear more about incoming Surface devices, and one of the devices we're hoping to see is the Surface Duo 2.

Galaxy S22’s small battery might match its small size

Galaxy S22’s small battery might match its small size

Although Apple adopted a four-phone strategy last year with the iPhone 12 series, Samsung didn't exactly follow suit. The Galaxy S21 offered only three models, eschewing what would have been the equivalent of an iPhone 12 mini. Despite being notorious for copying Apple, it would seem that Samsung will stick to its guns with the Galaxy S22 next year. One difference, however, is that it might actually offer a "mini" base model, which would probably explain its disappointing rumored battery size.

Pixel 6 Pro might finally support faster charging speeds

Pixel 6 Pro might finally support faster charging speeds

Despite all the fuss over fast-charging technologies sprouting left and right in the mobile world, the biggest names in that market seem to be laid back, almost unconcerned about how slow their flagships phones are in that arena. Samsung has been flip-flopping between 45W and 25W, the new iPhone 13 still maxes out at 20W, and Google's Pixel phones haven't gotten past 18W since their incarnation. It seems, however, that the tides of change have finally caught up with the Pixel 6 Pro, but probably still not in a gigantic wave.

Android 11 permission auto-reset is rolling out to older versions

Android 11 permission auto-reset is rolling out to older versions

Mobile platforms, actually almost all software these days, hinge their privacy and security features around the permissions systems. Apps that don't require access to certain features or hardware shouldn't be able to access them, and when they do, they need to get the user's consent first. Android has refined that system over time and has allowed users to grant or revoke apps' permissions at any time. Not all realize that, however, and some might have even forgotten that they have some apps installed. That's what the permission auto-reset feature was made for, and it's coming to phones running something as old as Android 6 Marshmallow.

Pokemon GO September Community Day: Shiny Oshawott and why

Pokemon GO September Community Day: Shiny Oshawott and why

It's nearly time for the September 2021 Community Day in Pokemon GO for the Pokemon called Oshawott. This event will feature one massive number of Oshawott for the 6 hours it'll take place, and it'll have increased likelihood of a SHINY Oshawott. This is good news, as this hasn't always been the case in recent events. During the event (plus 2 hours afterward) all Oshawott-family Pokemon that evolve into Samurott will learn an Exclusive Move Hydro Cannon.

Apple Card iPhone 13 upgrade problems today? You’re not alone

Apple Card iPhone 13 upgrade problems today? You’re not alone

One might assume that the safest way to secure an early-as-possible order of a brand new iPhone would be with Apple's own credit card. Unfortunate for some Apple Card users, the process was not as simple as expected. One common error found in the process was as follows: "There was a problem with the card details you entered. Please try another card."

Pokemon GO could be the best game in the metaverse

Pokemon GO could be the best game in the metaverse

I've played Pokemon GO since before public launch. Since Google's original Google Maps April Fool's Joke that eventually turned into Pokemon GO, I've felt the draw of an augmented reality in which Pokemon exist. Now, courtesy of a couple of long-time Pokemon GO gamers on The Silph Road on Reddit, I've come to realize that the Pokemon aren't the most important part of the equation. The most important bit here is the potential Niantic has in taking this franchise into the metaverse.
