Xiaomi Mi 8 tipped to feature fingerprint sensor under the display

With edge-to-edge displays quickly becoming the standard among flagship smartphones, meaning the loss of a "chin" for physical home buttons, the race is on to see who can include a reliable fingerprint sensor imbedded in the screen. Both Apple and Samsung have been rumored in the past to be working on this technology, but are said to have experienced difficulties slowing progress on the feature. If the latest development is accurate, it may be China's Xiaomi that's next with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

OnePlus 6 durability test shows it’s worth more than its price

OnePlus has finally launched the OnePlus 6, including an Avengers edition, but there were really no surprises left by the time it did. Well, except the price, though, as expected, it was higher than last year's model, though not by much and definitely a lot lower than equivalent flagships.

Fortunately for OnePlus, JerryRigEverything put the OnePlus 6 to its usual battery or torture tests to give would-be buyers some peace of mind.

ASUS ZenFone 5 on DxOMark: surprising mid-range contender

If there's one thing ASUS might be known for in the smartphone market is its confusing branding strategy. Each new ZenFone generation has countless variants and it's difficult to know offhand which is which. The ZenFone 5, for example, may be the standard-bearer for this year's ASUS lineup but it is actually the "premium mid-range" model. It also happens to be the first ASUS smartphone to be reviewed under DxOMark's revamped tests. And fortunately for ASUS, the odds seem to be in its favor.
