These games are optimized for Razer Phone’s 120 Hz refresh rate

There are very few in the market that can boast of double (or even quadruple) the refresh rate of most mobile devices. Even fewer, in fact only two, smartphones can claim that feat. The Razer Phone’s 120 Hz display is designed for games primarily and videos secondarily. It will be, however, all for naught if there are no games to actually take advantage of that feature. Fortunately, Razer has just published a lengthy list of Android titles that will play buttery smooth on the Razer Phone’s max display settings.

Nokia 6 (2018) fixes users’ biggest complaints

The new year has just rolled out and HMD Global is starting it not with a bang but with a tiny pop. The high-end Nokia 9 is still nowhere in sight, but that doesn’t mean its first 2018 smartphone is something to pan. The Nokia 6 (2018), a.k.a. Nokia 6 2nd gen, has just been revealed, somewhat. Its actual launch is still a few days away, but the company is revealing enough to make buyers of the first gen Nokia 6 seethe in jealousy.

Pokemon GO failed us all

Pokemon GO failed us all

Today I'm going to tell you why Pokemon GO is a game of diminishing returns. At the beginning, Pokemon GO was a great idea. Google creatives made a video showing how augmented reality might make the perfect ecosystem for a worldwide Pokemon game in which monsters could be found wandering a real world. Real battles could be fought, real encounters would happen, and capturing new Pokemon would be super fun. That only sort of happened.

OnePlus Switch tries to make it easy to ditch your old phone

OnePlus Switch tries to make it easy to ditch your old phone

One of the complaints many new, and sometimes even old, Android users have is how difficult it actually is to switch from one device to another. They usually compare it to iOS’ nearly seamless and nearly perfect process. It has only been in the last two years or so that Android finally got its own but very basic migration app. That’s why OEMs have often stepped up to the task to provide tools to make it easier for users to switch to their new models, just like OnePlus’ new Switch app.

Samsung Exynos 9810 processor highlights AI for face recognition

If there were any still any lingering doubt that Samsung would be going the Face ID route sooner rather than later, its newest product announcement should clear all those away.

LG G7 might not be the G7 as LG rebrands flagship line

LG G7 might not be the G7 as LG rebrands flagship line

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, Shakespeare once wrote. Shakespeare, however, wasn’t a marketing expert. Usually, when companies stick to a successful brand to build identity and milk as much as they can from the brand. Imagine if Microsoft suddenly chose to name Windows into, say, Microsoft OS. And yet that might be what LG is doing with its flagship G series, at least according to an anonymous official. The company will reportedly rebrand its flagship line in the first half of the year, which means there’s a high chance that the LG G7 won’t be called that by the time MWC comes around.

Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, L2 appear in glorious 3D renders

Once upon a time, Sony’s smartphones were the most leaked and worst kept secrets in the industry. As Sony’s prominence descended into near obscurity, so did the photos of leaked prototypes. Fortunately, we still have renders to chew on at least. Thanks to @OnLeaks, who worked together with TigerMobiles and CompareRaja, we now have a glimpse at three of Sony’s upcoming mid-range models, the Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra as well as the Xperia L2. And they might not be to everyone’s tastes.

LG calls it the “Raspberry Rose” and it will be the LG V30’s new fashionable color.

OnePlus 3, 3T, 5, 5T get Android Oreo treats

It seems that one of OnePlus' new year's resolutions is to really keep the promises it makes. At least the ones it makes public. And it is doing so by ending the old year exactly that way. With just a few days and hours to spare, OnePlus has finally released the promised Android Oreo beta for the OnePlus 5T while also giving the OnePlus 5 its promised Face Unlock feature. And lest you complain, it has also rolled out an update for the OnePlus 3/3T stable builds as well.
