Galaxy S10 receives more Galaxy Note 10 features

Galaxy S10 receives more Galaxy Note 10 features

Perhaps the age when Samsung kept its flagship lines separated through features is slowly coming to an end. While there are still things that the Galaxy S10 can't do without an S Pen, Samsung is slowly bridging that gap through feature updates. The latest feature set may not be as high-profile as the previous one but Galaxy S10 owners can now at least enjoy some more feature parity with the Galaxy Note 10.

Pixel 4 Motion Sense gestures can be remapped but you need root access

Pixel 4 Motion Sense gestures can be remapped but you need root access

The radar-based Motion Sense is in danger of becoming the Pixel 4's Bixby Button, unwanted and unused. Or to be more precise, it's unused because it's actually unavailable in most markets, at least officially. Perhaps that's the reason why Google is in no hurry to make any Motion Sense API available to app developers to use outside of Google's official list. Fortunately, just like Motion Sense itself, some developers have developed ways to work around those limitations but it won't be an easy task.

Pixel 4 compact Google Assistant UI rolls out to some Pixel 3 and 3 XL phones

Pixel 4 compact Google Assistant UI rolls out to some Pixel 3 and 3 XL phones

Google seems to be pushing Assistant as its one interface to rule them all, connecting users to its services no matter what device they're on. That, however, doesn't mean Google Assistant needs to be "in your face", especially during the brief moments you interact with it. That kind of "ambient computing" is what Google is now trying to push, starting with the more compact Google Assistant in the Pixel 4 that has now started to land on the Pixel 3 as well.

Samsung dual-screen folding phone patent takes on the Microsoft Surface Duo

Foldable phones, ones with actual flexible and folding screens, are slowly becoming a dream come true for phone makers and tech pundits. Consumers, however, are still on the fence on the drawbacks of such experimental devices. The announcement of the Microsoft Surface Duo, not to mention the launch of the LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen, seems to have struck a chord with more practical users and, unsurprisingly, Samsung may have a solution for that as well.

OnePlus 8 seen in the wild, hints at upcoming features

The OnePlus 7T has just launched last month to some amount of success but it seems that the company may actually be done with its next flagship. Unless OnePlus suddenly changes its schedule, it won't be another 6 or so months before the OnePlus 8 actually breaks cover but, unsurprisingly, leaks are already popping up. What is surprising, however, is that what could be the OnePlus 8 has already been spotted in the real world, providing clues on what it may have in store for 2020.

ASUS ROG Phone 2 Android 10 Beta starts now

ASUS ROG Phone 2 Android 10 Beta starts now

The ROG Phone and its current successor the ROG Phone 2 arguably represent the spirit of PC gaming transferred to mobile with their looks, specs, and accessories. They are also arguably the most expensive of the current generation of gaming smartphones and may also be burdened by ASUS' track record when it comes to Android updates. ASUS seems to be turning over a new leaf when it started the beta program for the ZenFone 6 last week. And exactly as many hoped, the ROG Phone 2's turn has come.

What if Pokemon GO suddenly ended?

What if Pokemon GO suddenly ended?

What would you do if Niantic closed their doors tomorrow, and there was no more Pokemon GO? That's a question I had to ask a friend recently when they voiced concerns that Pokemon GO used to be fun, but more recently felt more like an obligation. This is the overarching issue with video games in general, but doubly so when the entirety of said game is played on servers at some remote location: After it's done, what's left?

Galaxy S11 may avoid Pixel 4’s biggest mistake

Galaxy S11 may avoid Pixel 4’s biggest mistake

Samsung Galaxy S11 device family leaks at the tail end of the first week of November 2019 suggested the phones would ramp up battery life. As we know from a variety of phones this year - most notably the Google Pixel 4 - making a new phone with a smaller battery than its predecessor doesn't often end in good results. Samsung appears to be summoning the will to give their top-tier smartphones more battery capacity to handle the next round of futuristic technology - high refresh rate displays and 5G connectivity.

Sony IMX686 sensor coming to smartphones in 2020

Sony might no longer have much of a smartphone business to speak of but its imaging sensors are used by a large number of smartphones to pull off impressive photography feats. The Sony IMX586, in particular, is often what's used whenever you hear about a 48 megapixel camera. Unsurprisingly, Sony already has a successor in the works and it's already teasing this IMX686 even before the sensor hits the market next year.
