Red Magic 3 Review : The Gaming Phone Sweet Spot

It has a relatively large display with no notch and no camera hole, powerful "4D" haptic feedback, front-facing stereo speakers, and a sizable battery. With an approximately $479 starting price, the Red Magic 3 could be the most spot-on value in a gaming phone released by any company since the gaming phone trend began.

Huawei ban list and timeline: Google, Microsoft, Android fallout

Today we're going to run down the effective Huawei ban list, the basics in China-based spy fears, and the fallout. This has a little to do with ZTE, a lot to do with China's government, and what might be the worst bout of luck a company ever had (with regard to their native country's timing for a trade war with the United States). But most importantly, we're going to list all the places Huawei's been banned, rejected, or removed in the recent past. SEE: Updates at the end of this text.

ZTE Axon V concept has cameras bulging from the side, rather than a notch

ZTE Axon V concept has cameras bulging from the side, rather than a notch

The last few years have seen smartphone designs quickly evolve from skinny bezels to almost-borderless with a wide notch in the display, to now, where we're seeing teardrop-shaped notches and hole-punches for cameras. ZTE seems to have come up with the next crazy idea: an Axon V concept with a 3D camera that actually sticks out from the side of the chassis.

ZTE Blade V10, Axon 10 Pro 5G show the company is far from done

ZTE Blade V10, Axon 10 Pro 5G show the company is far from done

ZTE nearly collapsed completely after the US imposed a strict ban on its access to critical technologies and products it needs for its business. That ban has long been lifted but its survival has always still been in doubt. At MWC 2019, the Chinese manufacturer is putting up its bravest face as it announces its newest mid-range champion as well as, of course, a 5G phone for later this year.

nubia Red Magic Mars available now in the US

After a brief flash of popularity, it almost seems like gaming smartphones have become silent, pushed into the background by foldable phones and quadruple cameras. To prove that isn't the case, nubia's Red Magic brand has just announced the global availability of the Red Magic Mars gaming smartphone. Previously available only in China, you can now grab a hot gaming device in the US, Canada, and Europe at a price that would put even last year's flagships to shame.

US considers executive order to ban Huawei, ZTE telecom hardware

The Trump administration is considering an executive order that would ban US companies from buying telecommunications hardware from ZTE and Huawei. Both Chinese companies have been the focus of potential security concerns in multiple countries, including the US and Australia, the latter of which has already passed multiple restrictions on the companies. The news follows a recent report claiming the US government interfered with Huawei's plan to install WiFi in a Washington DC stadium.

ZTE nubia X teardown is unexciting in a good way

ZTE nubia X teardown is unexciting in a good way

Dual screen smartphones present as many puzzles as they solve. How do you effectively use it without accidentally trigger the other screen? How do you easily switch between the two screens? And more importantly, how easy would it be to open up the phone with out breaking anything. OK, maybe that last one isn’t something most of us will ask but those interested in repairing the ZTE nubia X definitely will. Good thing Zack Nelson has the answer.

ZTE nubia X durability test has surprising results

ZTE nubia X durability test has surprising results

Just when you thought everyone has agreed to flatter Apple by copying its notch, along came a few manufacturers who dared to find other ways to solve that design problem. Though the idea is not exactly new, tested first by the odd Meizu Pro 7, the ZTE nubia X is definitely the first to take that to the extreme. But as with any new and unconventional design, the question has always been “will it bend”. Fortunately for those interested in buying it one way or another, JerryRigEverything answered that question and more.

Lineage Android Pie update: What is it, and should I use it?

Today we're having a peek at the latest update to Lineage - but before that, we're going to go over what it is and why it exists. Lineage is a bit of software that replaces the version of Android your smartphone manufacturing brand originally installed before purchase. Once you purchase the phone, you have the ability to run the software already installed, or you can go through a series of steps that'll lead to expanded abilities and a custom build - made by Lineage.

Nubia Red Magic Mars gaming phone brings back buttons

Nubia Red Magic Mars gaming phone brings back buttons

There's a gaming phone by the name of nubia Red Magic Mars coming to market, and it's a strange device indeed. This device's most tricked-out edition has 10GB RAM and 256GB internal storage, while its most modest edition has 64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM. It's a monster - and it has a pair of shoulder buttons. Because of course it has a pair of shoulder buttons, why wouldn't a phone called Red Magic Mars have shoulder buttons aplenty?

Nubia X skips the notch in an unexpected way

Nubia X skips the notch in an unexpected way

Dual-screen smartphones aren't really a new concept, but they're a pretty rare sight. They've taken a couple different forms throughout the years too, whether it was the original Yotaphone's rear-facing E-ink display or the ZTE Axon M's foldable design. ZTE is back at it again today with the Nubia X, but this time around, that second screen actually has a design purpose rather than just being a novelty.

ZTE nubia X to bring its dual back-to-back screens this month

ZTE nubia X to bring its dual back-to-back screens this month

While much of the smartphone market is fussing over three or four cameras, notches, and elevating tops, ZTE’s sub-brand nubia is doing something equally eccentric of its own. We have heard of a so-called nubia Z18S a few months back, bearing quite an unusual solution to all these smartphone design problems. It seems nubia wasn’t at all kidding and it will be bringing this smartphone to market before October ends but with a slightly different name: the nubia X.
