Every phone needs this genius Huawei Mate 20 Pro feature

There's no shortage of things to like about the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Five cameras, a beautiful AMOLED screen, a huge 4,200 mAh battery, and a focus on speedy, useful artificial intelligence, just to name a few highlights. However there's one big feature that rival phone-makers really need to copy.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro hands-on: Gunning for iPhone XS

T-Mobile three-year installment plan is coming soon

T-Mobile three-year installment plan is coming soon

24 months is almost like a sacred number in the mobile industry. It's how long a standard carrier line contract lasts and, consequently, how long you have to pay for the device in installment chunks. It has also become the standard period for warranties and software updates and support. T-Mobile, which always prides itself as the "Un-carrier" might be working to change that game soon. Based on its website, it might start to offer installment plans that will take you three years to pay off instead of just two.

Galaxy Note 10 will be the biggest Note yet

Galaxy Note 10 will be the biggest Note yet

Once upon a time, Samsung's Galaxy Note was ridiculed and doubted for the size of its screen. Just last month, Apple announced the iPhone XS Max, not only the biggest iPhone over bit also 0.1 inches larger than the Galaxy Note 9. Clearly, phablets have won and size is no longer Samsung's exclusive domain. Now it needs to step up its game and, according to reports, the next Galaxy Note will outdo the iPhone XS Max by around 0.1 inches as well.

Pixel 3 XL is now DisplayMate’s bestest best

Pixel 3 XL is now DisplayMate’s bestest best

When smartphone benchmarks become the next marketing weapon, they can become a little bit crazy and sometimes even suspicious. On the mobile photography side, DxOMark had to revise its tests and grading because things have heated up in that space. DisplayMate may want to revise its scoring too because its top score is simply "A+" and, as of today, at least three recent flagships have tied in that spot, with the Pixel 3 XL unsurprisingly named as the best ever yet.

For Pixel 3, bigger isn’t better

For Pixel 3, bigger isn’t better

Bigger isn't always better, and in the case of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, it's the smaller of the two smartphones that has my vote. Both smartphones share much the same feature-set, including Google's tremendous computational camera system. Indeed, it's that parity of talents which makes the Pixel 3 all the more appealing.

Hearthstone NERFs confirmed: Poor Giggling Inventor!

Hearthstone NERFs confirmed: Poor Giggling Inventor!

Today Blizzard confirmed a number of changes to several new or nearly-new Hearthstone cards that've become a bit too powerful. This isn't a new occurrence - Blizzard changes the costs of cards and/or switches the power of cards every once in a while to bring balance to the force. Or the game - whichever. In this most recent set of switches, Blizzard's Hearthstone gameplay specialists took on Giggling Inventor, Mana Wyrm, and Aviana.

Google Pixel 3 Review: Picture greatness

Google Pixel 3 Review: Picture greatness

It's a testament to just how high expectations are for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL that, even after months of the Google phones leaking, interest in them remains high. Now, the pair of Android 9 Pie handsets are finally headed to shelves, promising the cutting-edge in Google's computational photography, the latest and greatest in software, and a more cohesive and premium-feeling design. Ambitious, certainly, but also more expensive than the phones they replace. Question is, has Google done enough to warrant both that excitement and that price premium?

Palm made a beautiful, ridiculous mistake of a new phone

Palm made a beautiful, ridiculous mistake of a new phone

The brand Palm revealed a new "phone" today that looks nice and has very little reason to exist. Much in the same way the first wave of smartwatches' first job was to solve a problem that did not exist, this first Palm smartphone for the year 2018 is tiny, beautiful, and quite unnecessary. It has a 3.3-inch display and it's coming to Verizon this November!

OnePlus 6T OxygenOS teased with some significant changes

OnePlus 6T OxygenOS teased with some significant changes

The OnePlus 6T is coming out this month and it's going to be quite a divisive one. On the one hand, it will make some rather big changes that won't make everyone happy. On the other hand, without those changes the OnePlus 6T is not exactly worth the effort compared to the OnePlus 6. In line with that double-edged hardware change, OnePlus is now also teasing some UI changes that will make its OxygenOS Android experience its "most distinct and intuitive" version yet.

Galaxy Note 9, iPhone XS Max battery test isn’t what you expect

Galaxy Note 9, iPhone XS Max battery test isn’t what you expect

All the advanced features in a smartphone would be pointless if your mobile device doesn't survive long enough for you to plug it in at the end of the day. In lieu of the long-dead practice of replaceable batteries, OEMs are now being asked, often demanded to put larger batteries into smartphones that are growing larger every year anyway. Naturally, that's going to be a point of contest between this year's two bitter rivals, the Apple iPhone XS Max and the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. You might already know the winner but how it gets there is still surprising.
