T-Mobile REVVL Plus: Wait for reviews before purchase

T-Mobile REVVL Plus: Wait for reviews before purchase

T-Mobile USA revealed the REVVL Plus smartphone this week with what appears to be great specs for a low price. Much like previous smartphones that T-Mobile, or any mobile carrier for that matter, have released in this fashion - we must warn you to be wary. This sort of phone is targeted at users who don't immediately know the difference between one phone and the next. But we're here to tell you: if it seems too good to be true, it usually is.

BlackBerry Motion breaks cover, all screen, no keyboard

BlackBerry Motion breaks cover, all screen, no keyboard

The somewhat odd BlackBerry KEYone might have been the last of a dying breed. Although not exactly the first made by TCL, it is the first BB phone to be openly advertised as such. It is also the last BB phone, so far, to sport BlackBerry's iconic QWERTY keyboard. That image may have just been reinforced by the fact that the new BlackBerry Motion, previously codenamed "Krypton", is more your traditional Android smartphone, all screen and no special tricks up its sleeves.

TCL’s ginormous C-Series 75-incher comes with Roku inside

While some TV makers are flaunting curves, TCL is now flaunting size instead. Announcing what has got to be one of the largest panels designed for living rooms, the new TCL C-Series is bringing more than just size to your home. It is also bringing crisp and bright visual paired with theater-grade audio. But more than that, it is also bringing thousands of channels, movies, and episodes via Roku OS, making it the largest Roku TV in the market.

BlackBerry Krypton leaks as TCL prepares all-touch Android

BlackBerry Krypton leaks as TCL prepares all-touch Android

BlackBerry's resurgence at the hands of TCL continues, and though the KEYone has given physical keyboard fans something to tap at, there's also a full-touch device in the works. That's the phone currently known as the BlackBerry Krypton, though so far we've had little in the way of leaks or whispers about what it might look like. Still, that's changed with a sneaky pre-announcement photo that has emerged this week.

Palm devices coming in 2018 without WebOS

Palm devices coming in 2018 without WebOS

A new Palm smartphone has been tipped to be coming in the year 2018, made by the folks at TCL. The Palm brand has been in limbo for the past half-decade, moving in and out of HP-connected devices then on into relative obscurity. The Palm operating system was acquired by LG and continues to be used (in some form or another) in LG smart TVs to this day - as such, it won't be coming with the Palm phone set for next year.

TCL’s 50″ and 65″ P-Series 4K Roku TVs have been cancelled

TCL’s 50″ and 65″ P-Series 4K Roku TVs have been cancelled

Chinese company TCL introduced a bunch of TVs in May including the 4K-toting P-Series lineup. That product line was supposed to launch in the near future in 50-inch, 55-inch and 65-inch sizes, but the company has changed its plans. If you were hoping to get a relatively cheap 4K Roku smart TV, you still can, but only in one size due to TCL's recent decision to cancel a couple models.

T-Mobile REVVL leads carrier’s low-cost lease phone Smartpicks

T-Mobile REVVL leads carrier’s low-cost lease phone Smartpicks

The T-Mobile REVVL is a smartphone that leads the pack of JUMP phones offered by the brand for cheap. Rumor has it this device was manufactured by TCL, the came company that makes Alcatel phones and some BlackBerry phones - and by the looks of it, that assessment seems right on point. The REVVL is one of a set of low-cost smartphones released with T-Mobile JUMP that users are able to lease.

Amazon Prime Day deals: Don’t believe the hype 2017

Amazon Prime Day deals: Don’t believe the hype 2017

Amazon Prime Day 2017 isn't all that much better than the same event last year - and right now I'm going to explain why. One of the most major reasons why there's so much hype in Amazon Prime Day is the opportunity it brings to blogs VIA the Amazon Affiliate system. Granted, most blogs that make articles with affiliate links make certain to mention this in their articles - we've done it here in this very article, in fact. But not every deal is great - and in fact the vast majority of the stuff that's discounted on Prime Day is a deal of the worst kind - the kind that isn't much of a deal at all.

BlackBerry KEYone screen problem acknowledged, downplayed

BlackBerry KEYone screen problem acknowledged, downplayed

Some might look at it like the Galaxy Note 7 all over again, though this time thankfully with less dangerous consequences. The BlackBerry KEYone allegedly had a very week, almost no, adhesive binding the screen to the rest of its body, resulting in the screen popping or falling off with very little force involved. In a statement to CrackBerry, BlackBerry Mobile somewhat admits that there might issues with adhesives, but also limits it to a "small handful" of affected units.

BlackBerry KEYone breaks spectacularly in bend test

BlackBerry KEYone breaks spectacularly in bend test

It's been a while since we've seen something break at the hands of JerryRigEverything's Zack Nelson. OEMs have become a bit smarter and have recently avoided being inducted into the YouTube channel's shelf of shame. Even the fragile-looking Samsung Galaxy S8 turned out to be quite the unyielding beast. It seems, however, that TCL didn't get the memo. That's because while the premium BlackBerry KEYone won't scratch so easily and feels solid in your hand, it will easily stop working even with very little force applied.

BlackBerry KEYone US availability: here’s what you need to know

Fans of the unmoving physical QWERTY keyboard in the US might have trouble sleeping tonight. Not out of worry but out of excitement. Unless they are subscribed to one particular carrier. TCL has just announced that its own-made BlackBerry smartphone is finally landing in stores tomorrow.
