Pixel 2 microphone problems have a classic NES-style workaround

Pixel 2 microphone problems have a classic NES-style workaround

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have had their share of launch problems, but one of the most baffling revolves around the pair's microphone. Since launch, users have been reporting an issue that causes the microphone to stop working during voice calls or when using Google Assistant. As you can imagine, that's a pretty big problem for a device that is first and foremost a phone.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro might be coming to AT&T

Huawei Mate 10 Pro might be coming to AT&T

Huawei might not be a small company like OnePlus, but its rise in the smartphone market is nothing short of a miracle. While its global numbers are enough to rival Apple and Samsung, it has been able to accomplish that without a strong presence in the US. It has, of course, tried to sell its smartphones in the country via retailers like Amazon, but missing out on carrier partnerships is a recipe for failure. And so it is no small news that the Chinese OEM is now reported to be on the verge of launching its Huawei Mate 10 Pro flagship in the US, this time via AT&T.

iPhone X clear back mod will make you think twice

iPhone X clear back mod will make you think twice

The switch, or return, to having glass rather than metal or plastic on the back of phones has a few advantages. Those include wireless charging, some rather fascinating designs, and the ability to have a clear back cover. The latter seems to have become a niche fad among enthusiasts, one that has inspired many to risk breaking their phones in the process. Naturally, the $1,000 iPhone X is no exception, and EverythingApplePro embarked on the journey so that you won’t have to. And after seeing this, you really might not want to.

mophie charge force fixes Galaxy Note 8’s biggest flaw

If you don’t mind, or maybe even love, Samsung’s “Experience”, formerly TouchWiz, skin, then the Galaxy Note 8 might very well one of the best smartphones of 2017, save for one problem. Well, two actually. First is, of course, the $1,000 price tag. The second is the fact that it even has less battery than the Galaxy S8+. If that is the only thing keeping you from the stylus-toting phablet, then mophie might have the solution in its new charge force casse and charge force powerstation mini.

OnePlus explains why it still won’t do wireless charging

OnePlus explains why it still won’t do wireless charging

Apple’s plunge into the wireless charging fray has put the technology back into focus again. It has actually been around for quite a while now, even on some smartphones. But not everyone is keen on jumping on the bandwagon just yet. One of those is OnePlus, whose slogan of “Never Settle” seems to fly in their refusal to use the budding technology. Co-founder Pete Lau, however, explains that it’s exactly because of that it isn’t yet putting wireless charging features on its smartphones, present or future.

There’s bad news about the Galaxy S9 display

There’s bad news about the Galaxy S9 display

As is usually the case, speculation about upcoming flagships begins well before that flagship is actually launched, and with the Galaxy S9, it seems we've been hearing rumors and speculation since the Galaxy S8 arrived on the scene. One topic that has seen a particularly high amount of back and forth is the Galaxy S9's fingerprint scanner. Plenty of rumors have claimed that Samsung has been looking into an in-display fingerprint reader, which would certainly be an interesting biometric addition to Samsung's phone.

HTC U11+ Edge Launcher and more unofficially available for U11

HTC U11+ Edge Launcher and more unofficially available for U11

HTC has just announced two U11 variants, including a larger U11+. Unfortunately, that one isn’t coming to the US, because HTC thinks it would be a bad business move for the market. Fortunately, there isn’t much that difference between the two, like the larger screen, the semi-translucent back cover, and Android 8.0 Oreo and a new radial menu launcher. But before you think that it is unfortunate that the last part isn’t available on the slightly older U11 yet, fortunately for you, you’re wrong and can now install that new launcher on your U11. Unofficially of course and at your own risk.

LG V30+ is also coming to T-Mobile next week

LG V30+ is also coming to T-Mobile next week

T-Mobile will have a pretty big weekend next week. No, it won’t be launching a new flagship, since we’ve practically run out of flagships to launch at this point. It will be launching, instead, two flagship-level smartphones. Or in this case, a “flagship plus”. After being not so exclusively available on Sprint and US Cellular, the LG V30+ is coming to the T-Mobile, giving LG fans from the carrier grown a bit in disappointment. Then again, maybe not.

Apple sued over iPhone 7, 8 dual camera patents

Apple sued over iPhone 7, 8 dual camera patents

Another day, another patent infringement lawsuit. Apple is definitely no stranger to such, being one of the largest targets in the industry. Being big only inspires many would-be Davids to try and take a shot at the Goliath. The latest lawsuit, however, strikes at the heart of one of Apple’s most recent victories, its dual cameras. A startup based in Tel Aviv is suing Apple for infringing on its dual camera tech. More interesting, however, is the accusation that Apple even boasted it could get away with it.

iPhone X profit margin higher than 8, Galaxy S8, Huawei Mate 10

This week the cost of parts inside the iPhone X have been calculated, and it would seem that Apple's got profit on point. According to TechInsights, the profit margin for the iPhone X is a whopping 64%, coming up just above the iPhone 8, with a profit margin of 59.2%. Like previous estimations from the same source, these numbers are based on street price and the cost of the parts that make up the device - they do not account for the many other costly elements that make for a new smartphone, like manufacturing.
