Motorola P30 copied Xiaomi who in turn copied Apple

Motorola P30 copied Xiaomi who in turn copied Apple

There's really no way around it - Motorola's joined the copycat club. This is apparently the Motorola P30, a device with a near-full-frontside display with a notch, a fingerprint sensor in the top middle of its back, and a pill-shaped set of cameras with its LED flash in the center. It's basically the Xiaomi Mi 8, a device which is basically an Android version of the iPhone X.

BlackBerry KEY2 LE gets a date

BlackBerry KEY2 LE gets a date

Samsung’s early launch of the Galaxy Note 9 means only one thing. We only have a little over two weeks to get a breather before we’re inundated by even more new products. IFA 2018 is just around the corner and with it comes new smartphones to choose from. If you’re the type who prefers to see and feel the keys on your phone, however, choice is pretty limited. Fortunately, TCL and BlackBerry are likely to drop another one before this month is over.

Galaxy Note 9 screen gets DisplayMate’s highest grade ever

Galaxy Note 9 screen gets DisplayMate’s highest grade ever

While there has been an obsession over screen cutouts, most smartphone wars are still waged in terms of camera features. But no matter how good your smartphone camera may be, you might think that it isn’t just because it isn’t being displayed correctly on the smartphone screen. That is why DisplayMate continues to emphasize that the display is the crown jewel of smartphones. And, not that surprising, it’s giving the crown of smartphone displays to the latest flagship to come our way: the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

OnePlus 6T release details ‘leaked’ in OPPO R17

This device takes on some of the best qualities of its predecessors and makes for a new smartphone that's ready to do battle with the best smartphones in the world.

Galaxy X foldable smartphone sees Samsung fight its natural inclinations

Galaxy X foldable smartphone sees Samsung fight its natural inclinations

Samsung has a folding phone challenge. On the one hand, the smartphone-maker can't afford to rush its flexible smartphone - colloquially, though unofficially, known as the "Galaxy X" - to market and risk it being underwhelming. At the same time, however, the company's addiction to being first out of the gate with new technologies leaves it paranoid that rivals might beat it to the finish line.

Galaxy S10: These details beat iPhone X, or all is lost

Galaxy S10: These details beat iPhone X, or all is lost

The Samsung Galaxy S10 series appeared in a video created by CC, in three parts, showing the possibilities from front to back. These devices, if they look like this and act like this, won't allow other brands any breathing room. If the Samsung Galaxy S10 series phones - three phones - look like this, Samsung won't have need for any other phones the rest of the year.

Moto Z3 Review: Waiting for 5G

Moto Z3 Review: Waiting for 5G

The Moto Z3 is a curious device, mostly because its reason for existing hasn’t been released yet. The Z3 will one day be compatible with the admittedly impressive 5G Moto Mod, a detachable accessory that’s the product of a team up between Verizon, Motorola, and Qualcomm. The problem, and what leaves me scratching my head, is that the 5G mod won’t be available until sometime next year, while the Moto Z3 is launching this month as a Verizon exclusive.

Alcatel 7 brings a 18:9 phablet to MetroPCS lineup

At the beginning of the year, Alcatel unveiled its new branding scheme and its three new smartphone lines: the Alcatel 5, Alcatel 3, and Alcatel 1. All of these shared one thing in common: the 18:9 nearly bezel-less design that has become the de facto design standard on both premium and mid-tier phones. Not content with just those three, the TCL-owned phone maker is bringing a fourth one, the Alcatel 7, to the US and to MetroPCS subscribers starting today.

The Google Pixel 3 is in trouble: this is why

The Google Pixel 3 is in trouble: this is why

Google definitely pulled off a miracle when it came out with the first Pixel phone. There was some amount of doubt that Google had what it takes to make its own smartphone. And then the Pixel 2 came out which, despite a very rough start, is still considered to be the embodiment of the perfect Android smartphone. With this year’s Pixel 3, Google will be trying to prove that “third time’s a charm” but things might not turn out that way this time around. And, no, it’s not because of that notch.

Pixel 3 XL hands-on video leak confirm specs, design

Now that Samsung has announced the Galaxy Note 9, we’re really just waiting for the two biggest names in the smartphone market to butt heads: Google and Apple. The Pixel 3 and 3 XL will be facing off with the 2nd gen iPhone X, iPhone X Plus, and 6.1-inch LCD iPhone. But while the previous two Pixel generations have been met with anticipation and excitement, there’s a great deal of hesitation with the Pixel 3, mostly because of its design but also because of some of its specs.
