Star Wars OnePlus 5T has two special features

The ever-so-slightly accented OnePlus 5T Star Wars edition was revealed today in brief. This device works almost exactly like the standard OnePlus 5T, but for its wallpaper contents. The exterior is where we're going to get the new and/or different bits and pieces. Most of this phones exterior is white, while the front is mostly black, and the sides have just one splash of red.

Battlefront 2: Reddit meme-troopers just saved the day …for now

This week Reddit changed the mind of EA on a game they were just about to release called Star Wars: Battlefront II. This game was looking amazing at first, then the public turned sour at EA's reveal of in-game transactions.

OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition leaked

A tip was sent this morning on the appearance of a OnePlus 5T with a special edition on its name. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a month away at this point, and Lucasfilm hasn't been stingy with access to their licensing rights for products of all sorts. OnePlus has been known to release special limited edition versions of their smartphones, too - remember the Colette OnPlus 3T, and the midnight black edition 3T, and the OnePlus 5 JCC+ release earlier this year.

Sphero R2-D2 Review : Also the Best Star Wars Toy ever made

Sphero R2-D2 Review : Also the Best Star Wars Toy ever made

When I reviewed BB-8 by Sphero, I didn't expect the company would go back and create an R2-D2, too. They built their name on the original remotely controlled sphere - Sphero - and they'd not yet expanded to the world of Cars and Spider-Men. Since then they've become a much more diversified group of smart-device creators, and it's become time to roll out with the most beloved Star Wars robot in the history of the world: R2-D2 (also now by Sphero).
