T-Mobile Essentials plan goes back to basics

T-Mobile Essentials plan goes back to basics

T-Mobile has a new smartphone plan focusing on the holy trifecta: unlimited calls, messaging, and data, and very little else. T-Mobile Essentials does without the usual add-ons of international data access, unlimited mobile hotspot, and other features, in the name of keeping the price down every month.

ASUS ZenFone Live L1 joins Android Go US team

ASUS ZenFone Live L1 joins Android Go US team

You could be forgiven if you immediately dismiss ASUS’ silent new arrival simply because of its name. The company, in its typical fashion, already used the “ZenFone Live” name twice last year. But if you’re actually in the market for a cheap Android phone with (mostly) vanilla software and guaranteed updates up to 28 months, then you might want to pay attention to this new L1 model. We still don’t know the logic behind the naming, but the ZenFone Live L1 is the third Android Go phone to hit the US market.

Galaxy Note 9 specs: massive leak found on a retail box

Galaxy Note 9 specs: massive leak found on a retail box

Had enough of Galaxy Note 9 rumors? The good news is that those will finally end on Thursday. The bad news is that that’s when the real talk will start as well. The worse news is that there’s still a lot of time to squeeze in some last-minute stuff before everything gets formally Unpacked. And with this latest bit to come from Russia, there is really no spec left unturned for what Samsung hopes will save it from a disappointing fiscal year.

Dual SIM 6.1-inch iPhone isn’t going out of China

Dual SIM 6.1-inch iPhone isn’t going out of China

In just a few weeks, Apple will finally be bringing out its A-team for the year until late 2019. And if you thought last year’s three options made deciding bit difficult, wait until you get a hold of what Apple has planned for consumers this year. That is, if you’re in China, where there might be four models to choose from. Or at least a variant that won’t be available elsewhere in the world. Which may or may not be a good thing for US buyers who might have been hoping for a dual SIM iPhone year after year.

Pixel 3 launch date leaked by Google itself

Pixel 3 launch date leaked by Google itself

They say third time’s a charm and that Google might try to make that saying true. While many will be waiting to see what Samsung has in store for the mobile market this week, some of the Android faithful are not so interested in what the Galaxy Note 9, the Galaxy Watch, and the Galaxy Tab S4 have to offer. Instead, they’re waiting with bated breath for what they consider the creme of the Android crop: the Google Pixel 3. And thanks to Google itself, we now know it’s going to announce it on the same day as the other Pixel phones.

Lensball Review : Something Completely Different

Lensball Review : Something Completely Different

There are two versions of the Lensball. One's called the Lensball Pocket - that's 60mm and weighs 250gr (0.55 pounds). The Lensball Pro is 80mm and weighs 650gr (1.45 pounds). Both versions come in a simple padded box and both come with a soft material pouch. I would not recommend dropping either one of these pieces of glass, with or without the pouch, as we're not dealing with the least fragile piece of equipment here, regardless of guarantees of ruggedness.

Fortnite Android app: How to avoid fakes [UPDATE: Epic Statement]

Fortnite Android app: How to avoid fakes [UPDATE: Epic Statement]

Epic Games announced today they'd be releasing Fortnite for Android through their own website instead of Google Play. Because of this - or perhaps with our without Epic Games' help, fake versions of Fortnite began to pop up - they've been appearing since the iOS version of the game was first released. Now that Epic Games confirmed that the Fortnite app will be available on the web, not through Google, there's a whole lot of potential out there for mistaken identities and malicious parties attacking the helpless addicts of the game.

iPhone XS 2018 hands-on video shows all 3 models

iPhone XS 2018 hands-on video shows all 3 models

A set of three new iPhone models revealed in a video this afternoon suggests we'll go out a whole new door in 2018. Apple was rumored earlier this month to be releasing three devices at once, all this September, each with iPhone in their name. The standard version would simply be called iPhone - that'll be iPhone 2018 when we look back at it in a few years from now. Then there's the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Plus, replacing the standard X.

BlackBerry Evolve and X revealed, but not for you

BlackBerry Evolve and X revealed, but not for you

Two new BlackBerry smartphones were revealed this week in a manner that suggested they weren't meant for the USA. BlackBerry hasn't done a lot of business in the USA recently, and launching a pair of phones in India isn't outside their realm of possibility. In this case, it's more of a licensee situation, where Indian company Optiemus Infracom paid BlackBerry some cash to use their name while they launch a pair of phones branded and decked-out in BlackBerry app connections.

2018 iPhone headphone jack dongles tipped axed

2018 iPhone headphone jack dongles tipped axed

Analysts suggested this week that 2018 iPhones of all sorts might well do away with in-box dongles. That means no more headphone jack at all for the average user - not unless they want to pay extra for said dongle purchased separately. This would be the first time Apple released an iPhone with no in-box access to a headphone jack since the dawn of the iPhone.

Fortnite Android APK launch: Beware the download

Fortnite Android APK launch: Beware the download

Epic Games' Fortnite for Android is about to be a disaster of a launch from the get-go. Their plan appears to be launching exclusively with the Galaxy Note 9, for starters. That'll last about a month, then the game will launch for all other Android devices - which of course means they'll launch for a limited set of Android devices based on their own internal testing and their preferred manufacturers.
