Google Pixel is at the center of a new class action complaint

Seeing consumers launch class action lawsuits against giant companies is a relatively common thing, and today, Google is in the crosshairs. Google has been hit with a class action complaint alleging that it didn't honor warranties for the original Pixel and Pixel XL when it became clear that the phones suffered from microphone defects. The complaint was filed by Girard Gibbs LLP in San Jose, the same law firm that recently handled the class action lawsuit surrounding the bootloop issue some LG phones experienced.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro durability test starts the year right

Huawei Mate 10 Pro durability test starts the year right

The Huawei Mate 10 Pro is probably one of the more controversial phones of 2018, but not because of the phone itself. 2018 started badly for Huawei when, just days, maybe even hours, before its proud announcement, AT&T pulled out from its partnership with the Chinese company, reportedly due to political pressure. That hasn’t stopped Huawei from offering the phone in the US, albeit without carrier perks and strings, with pre-orders starting this week. And for those who want to get their hands on this flagship, JerryRigEverything has just proved it to be one of the most durable phones of 2018.

Huawei P20 Lite leaks leave little to the imagination

Huawei P20 Lite leaks leave little to the imagination

The P20 might be Huawei’s star, which may or may not be announced later this month at a place other than MWC, but the P20 Lite seems to be getting more attention these days. Given Huawei’s release pattern, its existence is pretty much in the bag. But what’s curious about it is that it seems to be a compromise between old and new, straddling the fine line between what users have become used to and what Huawei thinks the market will be gravitating to, which mostly means the iPhone X.

Qualcomm 5G aims for biggest brands in mobile gadgetry

Qualcomm is celebrating something of a win today. As we're barreling toward a 5G future, Qualcomm has been attempting to sell its OEM partners on its Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem family. The company unsuprisingly wants this hardware at the center of the first 5G devices we'll see roll out over the next couple of years. Today, Qualcomm announced a fairly major victory on that front.

iBoot source download: Apple hits biggest leak ever with DCMA

iBoot source download: Apple hits biggest leak ever with DCMA

This week the bootloader source code for iOS seems to have leaked in its entirety. Apple would appear to have sent a DCMA takedown notice to Github, where the code was leaked, this indicating the code posted was of some large consequence. This is a big deal because it will likely lead to custom software for the latest iPhone devices. This is also a big deal because it could potentially lead to some nefarious parties finding their way in to Apple devices with a bit of reverse engineering - but don't worry. Apple's aware of what's up.

Huawei P20 Lite at FCC has an unusual screen, small battery

Huawei P20 Lite at FCC has an unusual screen, small battery

Thanks to Samsung’s declaration of an MWC 2018 press event, which will most likely be about the Galaxy S9 and S9+, other OEMs seem less enthusiastic about making a big splash there as well. LG is definitely sitting this one out but Huawei isn’t passing up the opportunity for attention. Instead, it is reportedly holding its own event far away from Barcelona. And while it’s expected to unveil the Huawei P20 there, it might also have a P20 Lite in store, a lesser flagship with some odd features.

iOS iBoot bootloader source code leaked on GitHub

iOS iBoot bootloader source code leaked on GitHub

Apple's walled garden is partly made possible through its closed, proprietary software. While Microsoft has made a U-turn on its stance on Linux and open source in general, Apple remains steadfast in embracing a "security through obscurity" philosophy. That stance, however, will soon be put to the test now that a critical piece of software used to secure Apple's devices has now been leaked on the Internet in a very big way. Source code for Apple's iBoot bootloader has been posted on GitHub, potentially opening the doors for hackers and security researches to more easily break into iPhones.

Galaxy S9 super slow-mo details hint at a sophisticated feature

Galaxy S9 super slow-mo details hint at a sophisticated feature

There isn't much that is expected to change in the Galaxy S9 and S9+. So instead of focusing on what's new (or not) across the board, it seems that Samsung is homing in on how its early 2018 flagships will reimagine mobile photography. One part of the reimagination is expected to be its super slow-mo feature and a recent leak describes how this feature will try to be the next big thing in mobile photography.
