Vivo V15 Pro hands-on: bringing cutting-edge tech to the masses

Vivo V15 Pro hands-on: bringing cutting-edge tech to the masses

Vivo was the first phone maker to come up with the elevating camera solution to bezels, a design that has been copied or modified by others. With the Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition and Vivo APEX 2019 concept, it almost seemed that the company was abandoning its own innovation. Not quite. Instead, Vivo is actually making that innovation accessible to more users by putting it in its latest V series phone, the Vivo V15Pro. With that elevating camera, a triple camera system, and more AI features than you can remember, the Vivo V15Pro aims to bring cutting-edge technology, and buzzwords, to a broader market.

Huawei P30 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 9 show off camera capabilities with full moon shot

The Chinese Lantern Festival falls on the first full moon after the Chinese New Year and, as such, is a perfect chance to catch a glimpse of the large night time object in the sky. For Chinese smartphone makers Xiaomi and Huawei, however, it's also the perfect time to tease their upcoming smartphones' photography prowess. It might, however, be an unfair match considering what the Xiaomi Mi 9 is up against in next month's Huawei P30 Pro.

Razer Phone 2 Android Pie update nears, phone business in peril

It has barely been half a year since Razer boasted about the success of its new smartphone venture which eventually led to the launch of the Razer Phone 2. But within those five or so months, it seems that Razer has either had a change of heart or the business didn't seem as profitable as it expected. Sources now hint that trouble is brewing for Razer's phone division but, fortunately, that's not going to stop the Razer Phone 2 from getting its pie.

nubia Red Magic Mars available now in the US

After a brief flash of popularity, it almost seems like gaming smartphones have become silent, pushed into the background by foldable phones and quadruple cameras. To prove that isn't the case, nubia's Red Magic brand has just announced the global availability of the Red Magic Mars gaming smartphone. Previously available only in China, you can now grab a hot gaming device in the US, Canada, and Europe at a price that would put even last year's flagships to shame.

Why big teams like Apple develop and little ones like OnePlus disrupt

Why big teams like Apple develop and little ones like OnePlus disrupt

A study published this week on the size of teams in science and technology showed how one disrupts while the other tends to develop. I'm using Apple and OnePlus to extrapolate because Apple was, for a while, a disruptor. Now they're not exactly the same company they were a decade ago - they still disrupt the industry, sometimes, but they're far more apt to develop what's already successful. OnePlus, on the other hand, is in a place where they've disrupted the market, recently, and several times over.

Galaxy S10 revealed with Galaxy Buds in leaked TV spot

Samsung's Galaxy S10 reveal event is right around the corner, but the fact that it isn't until tomorrow means there's plenty of time left for another leak or two. This next leak is a big one, as it involves a seemingly official Galaxy S10 commercial airing before the phone has even been revealed. In other words: Someone messed up.

Qualcomm QM215 to challenge MediaTek in Android Go market

Qualcomm may have the lion's share of the mobile CPU market, its reign is anything but secure. Samsung and Huawei have proven up to the task and Apple continues to embarrass it in both benchmarks and courts. And on the opposite end of the spectrum, long-time rival MediaTek has been the go-to for budget devices. Now it seems that the chip maker is taking steps to ensure that it will be the favored supplier even on low-tier devices like Android Go phones with an upcoming new QM215 chipset.

Huawei P30 confirmed to snub MWC for Paris in March

Huawei P30 confirmed to snub MWC for Paris in March

Huawei isn't skipping MWC this year. In fact, it might have a more interesting device to show off. But if you were only interested in the Chinese OEM's next flagship, you might want to skip the event. Huawei has just released press invites to its P30 and P30 Pro event, hinting at how it will "Rewrite the Rules". And perhaps has part of that rebellion, it won't be holding the event at MWC or even on the same month, settling for the city of love instead.

Sony MWC 2019 teaser confirms CinemaWide 21:9 display

Sony MWC 2019 teaser confirms CinemaWide 21:9 display

Sony's smartphones haven't generated much hype for a few years now, hinting at the brand's declining popularity. Once notorious for having the worst leakage problem among OEMs, it almost seemed that tipsters and leaksters have lost interest in Sony's upcoming phones. This year could be different, though, mostly thanks to Sony weird design choice. And thanks to its own official teaser for MWC 2019, we can now indeed expect its next smartphones to have ultra-wide, or ultra-tall, screens.

All Galaxy S10 cases, covers leaked: Remember that screen issue?

A set of official Samsung Galaxy S10 accessories were leaked this morning with a few details not known before today. This set of images shows that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will indeed come in three sizes, will come in two different sorts (flat and curved-edge display) and will have a front-facing fingerprint sensor that is unaffected by a standard screen protector. But what's that, you say, it wasn't the standard screen protector you were worried about?

Incognito Mode can be seen, but Google has a fix

Incognito Mode can be seen, but Google has a fix

Incognito Mode in Google Chrome (aka Private Mode) will be better in the near future - in a set of ways. Those that've used this mode in the past likely used it to avoid being tracked for advertisements and/or to make sure what they were looking at wasn't part of their internet browser history. Today it's become clear that there was an open exploit in the system - one that's being rectified by Google right this minute.
