Man goes to China, builds iPhone from parts sold in markets

Man goes to China, builds iPhone from parts sold in markets

Smartphones are such a commodity these days that people take for granted the amount of work it takes to make one. Sure, that process has been pretty much automated, but that doesn’t take away the complexity of a smartphone. And what better way to learn about that complexity by building your smartphone. Better yet, your own iPhone! That is exactly what adventurer extraordinaire Scotty Allen of Strange Parts did when he was in China. What he ended up building was a perfectly working refurbished iPhone 6s at half the price of a band new one.

Galaxy S8 US pre-orders are shipping with a surprise gift

How determined is Samsung to make a good first impression with its Galaxy S8 and S8+? Apparently enough to thrown in a completely unexpected freebie for those who have committed early to its smartphone. Someone who pre-ordered the Samsung’s flagship directly from Samsung itself has reported receiving a conical Amplifier Speaker Dock, something Samsung never let on at any point in time.

OnePlus 5 is next, OnePlus 4 skipped because unlucky

OnePlus 5 is next, OnePlus 4 skipped because unlucky

Most of the world is probably familiar with 13 being the unlucky number, but for those with Chinese or even East Asian heritage, the unlucky number comes a lot much sooner. Case in point is the OnePlus' next flagship. Based on a certification in China, that will be the OnePlus 5, which will follow last year's OnePlus 3. If you're wondering whatever happened to the OnePlus 4, it didn't get scrapped. It just never existed at all. That's because in China and other East Asian countries, the number 4, not 13, is considered deadly unlucky.

HTC One X10 leaks appear: will it take on OnePlus?

HTC One X10 leaks appear: will it take on OnePlus?

This afternoon a set of images has leaked of the next HTC smartphone - or at least what appears to be HTC's next smartphone. This is the HTC One X10, a device that leaked in a very small way a few months ago. If this phone ever makes it to market, it'll be a disruptor to one key part of the industry: the low-cost, high-end market. Namely: the place that OnePlus seems to be taking a real swig of at the moment.

Pokemon GO Easter Event Start Time, Details, Strategy

Pokemon GO Easter Event Start Time, Details, Strategy

This afternoon the Pokemon GO Easter Event begins - though you wont find Niantic calling it that, exactly. Instead, Niantic calls this their Pokemon GO Eggstravaganza, and it begins this afternoon. In this event we'll find that a "greater variety of Pokemon can now be found in 2 km Eggs," in addition to additional Candy in every egg hatched. There's a bit more XP to be had at this event as well.

Turing Phone maker enlists TCL for AI-assisted Appassionato phone

Turing Phone maker enlists TCL for AI-assisted Appassionato phone

While TCL does have its own smartphones under the Alcatel brand, it seems to have stumbled upon a new business. It is probably becoming the go to manufacturer for smartphone makers who are no longer making their own phones. After BlackBerry, TCL's next customer is Turing Robotic Industries or TRI, which is perhaps better known for its "Liquidmorphium" Turing Phone. Together, the two will create the next generation of that line, the Appassionato, which will come with its own "amplified intelligence" assistant, Sir ALAN.

Pokemon GO Easter Event: details tipped early [UPDATED w/ Confirmation]

Pokemon GO Easter Event: details tipped early [UPDATED w/ Confirmation]

The Pokemon GO Easter Event begins tomorrow and will last one full week with a set of benefits for all users in the game. Information on this event will likely be announced by Niantic either later today or midday tomorrow when Easter Weekend starts - if you're getting a very early start on Easter Weekend, that is to say. This event falls in line with previous Pokemon GO events in that both Pokemon Eggs and Experience Points (XP) are affected! NOTE: Information on this event was, indeed, announced by Niantic less than 24 hours after this initial article was released, and our sources (and insight) were given additional street cred. We missed one thing - half-priced Lucky Eggs!

iPhone 8 vs Galaxy Note 8 : release of Apple’s beast

iPhone 8 vs Galaxy Note 8 : release of Apple’s beast

Android devices of all sorts are coming up in the world, rallying these last couple of years with features that rival even the iPhone. That's a strange thing to say as someone who's supposed to be unbiased about which smartphone is best - but looking at sales numbers, it's clear Apple's been quite dominant since 2007, while devices like Samsung's Galaxy S and Note series as well as Google's Pixel lines are coming to take a piece of the action. With the iPhone 8, otherwise known as or code-named iPhone X, Apple may show that they're not simply holding back features from power users - they've just been lying in wait.

Galaxy S8’s Bixby will have a confusing, convoluted rollout

Galaxy S8’s Bixby will have a confusing, convoluted rollout

Gone are the days when you could expect most smartphone features, save for network support, to be uniform across all devices everywhere. These days, you have to be more aware of how certain features might be available for one market but not for your market. Or that those features might not come all at the same time, if at all. That mess is what will greet new owners of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ when the smartphones rollout next week without one key feature: Bixby voice control.
