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.

Galaxy S9 vs iPhone X: Why you see no choice in 2018

Galaxy S9 vs iPhone X: Why you see no choice in 2018

In the year 2018, most Americans only consider one of two smartphones to purchase as their next mobile device. One is the iPhone, the one and only choice for many users who've only ever owned an iPhone and don't plan on switching any time soon. The other is the Galaxy S9, part of the Galaxy S line that's held the "wow" factor in many other American minds over the past half-decade. But why is that?

BlackBerry KEYone price drops finally

It’s been a while since we’ve heard of any big news about BlackBerry’s phones. And while there still isn’t any new one coming to the US, this latest tidbit might still be big for the BlackBerry faithful.

Moto Z2 Force screen is peeling off for a number of users

Remember that Valentine’s Day promo Motorola just kicked off? You know, the one that offered a free Amazon Alexa Moto Mod for a purchase of a Moto Z2 Force Edition? You might want to think really hard about in case you were considering taking Moto up on that offer. Because according to some users, even the $149 freebie might not be worth the headache you might incur after seeing your “shatter proof” screen peeling off and then being charged for a replacement while still in warranty.
