Vivo X60 Pro+ Review – ZEISS in Focus

Throughout all the changes that smartphones have undergone through the years, one thing that has remained constant, a least in the past few generations, has been the focus on better cameras. Almost just as important as the software user experience, the ability of these personal computers in our pockets to create a visual record of our lives has proven to be of importance to people from all walks of life.

No smartphone maker has been able to turn a blind eye on that trend and this year, Vivo has gone all out on the X60 Pro+ and we take it for a test run to see if its combination of high-end sensors and the ZEISS name is all that it's cut out to be.

Vivo X60 Pro Review – Familiar yet New

Vivo X60 Pro Review – Familiar yet New

2021 started with a bit of uncertainty, especially for the smartphone market. Has the economy recovered enough to take big risks in new products? Or are consumers still opting to make "safe" purchases of familiar and tested products? The one thing that remains unchanged even with the pandemic is people's needs for an accessible smartphone with top-notch cameras that can capture their memories in perfect detail and performance that goes beyond its price tag. That's what Vivo is promising with the Vivo X60 Pro, one of its first to be made in collaboration with famed optics company ZEISS, and we take an intimate look to see if it all checks out.

Huawei P50 Pro+ leak reveals how cameras will look

Huawei P50 Pro+ leak reveals how cameras will look

Calling the Huawei P50 Pro's camera design "unique" is probably the kindest way to call the unconventional "circles in an egg" appearance that has been hinted at by unofficial renders. Those renders, however, don't exactly show how many cameras will be used for Huawei's next P series phones, much less how they will be arranged inside. Those details are now coming from a different and admittedly less reliable source, showing what could turn out to be a divisive camera arrangement that makes no practical sense.

iPhone 13 glass panels suggest smaller notches again

iPhone 13 glass panels suggest smaller notches again

Apple was one of the first phones that sported a notch (the Essential PH-1 was technically the first) and it was criticized for how large that notch was, though it still had nothing on the Pixel 3 XL's "bucket". Despite subsequent trends, from waterdrop notches to punch-hole cutouts, the iPhone notch has remained basically unchanged since 2017. It might still stay that way this year but, at least based on this latest leak, the iPhone 13 series may at least have significantly smaller notches than ever before.

Samsung delivers Galaxy phone, wearables via drones in Ireland

Dreams of delivering products via drones or even self-driving cars have been around for years, maybe even decades. The current pandemic, however, made such contactless systems seem almost even more necessary than before. Those technologies and the laws around them are still in development but some have already started to pave the way to make that the new normal. In Ireland, for example, Samsung will be delivering some of its most recent mobile devices via drones to make the process not only safe but also faster.

Those differences aside, both Black Shark 4 devices are obviously intended to be the go-to phones for mobile gaming, and they've certainly got the feature set to back that claim.

LG mobile business now rumored to fold rather than sell

LG mobile business now rumored to fold rather than sell

Sony, HTC, and LG have all long been expected to close up their smartphone shops sooner or later. For a while, it even seemed that HTC would be the first to go but it miraculously survives to this day. In recent months, however, it is LG that has been the subject of many rumors about its mobile business finally throwing in the towel and the latest word is that LG may decide to just completely close that business down rather than sell it but mostly because it hasn't found a suitable buyer anyway.
