AT&T 5G E isn’t just misleading, it’s actually slower than rivals

AT&T 5G E isn’t just misleading, it’s actually slower than rivals

AT&T may have been quick to launch "5G E" branding on its subscribers' smartphones, but the network itself is nowhere near as fast. That's the conclusion one wide-reaching network test has come to, after running speed trials on AT&T's so-called 5G Evolution network that it describes as a stepping stone to true 5G.

Huawei leaks P30 camera details before its own reveal next week

Huawei leaks P30 camera details before its own reveal next week

Next week, Huawei is set to reveal its P30 series of flagship phones at an event in Paris. That's all well and good, but there's one problem: the P30 series has been leaked to high heaven already. Even if just a portion of the leaks are accurate, we already know quite a bit about these phones. Details on the P30 series have been leaked yet again, but this time around, it's all Huawei's fault.

Maybe reconsider deleting that old battery-hog app

Maybe reconsider deleting that old battery-hog app

The lengths some people will go through to avoid working a 9-5 job are just incredible. What we're seeing here today is a fraudster campaign perpetrated by an unnamed "Company X" discovered fitting itself in-between ad networks and their final target, the everyday average Android smartphone user. They did it by hiding, and they did it by draining your battery while they hid.

NexDock 2 offers a better lapdock for Samsung and Huawei phones

NexDock 2 offers a better lapdock for Samsung and Huawei phones

Although the idea of a singular convergent smartphone that also acts as your desktop hasn't completely died, it hasn't fully taken off either. Of those attempts, only Samsung's DeX and Huawei's EMUI Easy Projection remain but for all their promise of truly mobile computing, they both have forgotten one essential piece of the puzzle: a portable dock for their phones. That need is mostly being filled by an extremely small number of third-party accessory makers. Now one of the pioneers of that niche market going through crowdfunding again to bring the NexDock 2 to life, just in time for the latest iterations of Samsung's and Huawei's flagships.

Chrome on Android’s history navigation gestures simplify one-hand use

Chrome on Android’s history navigation gestures simplify one-hand use

It's becoming more and more a gesture-based technological world, be it on large screens but especially on smartphones. As phablets become the norm, the ability to use our phones with one hand becomes increasingly more difficult, even for simple things like going back and forward through browser history. Fortunately, along with ditching the button-based Android navigation panel, Google has thought of giving Chrome on Android some more gesture-based actions, but you have to find them first before you can enable them.

Huawei P30 Pro camera hyping kicks into full gear

Huawei P30 Pro camera hyping kicks into full gear

In less than a week, Huawei will make its attempt to make you forget about the Galaxy S10, foldable phones, or even the fact that its flagships are not available in the US. That last part is going to bite consumers hard if the Huawei P30 and especially the Huawei P30 Pro are all that they're cracked up to be. With just a few days left, it's revving up the marketing machine and, unsurprisingly, it's pouring all its resources on advertising the phones' camera prowess.

Galaxy A90 notchless infinity screen confirmed by Samsung itself

The fanfare over the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy Fold may be over, but it seems that Samsung may yet have one more big thing coming in a few weeks. Unlike the 2018 Galaxy A7 and Galaxy A9, the Galaxy A90 continues to be an interesting mystery. At least one mystery may have already been solved, though, and we have Samsung to thank for that. For a brief moment, a small footnote on its Galaxy A series confirms that the upcoming mid-range phone will, indeed, bear a "notchless infinity screen".

Razer and Tencent mobile partnership raises hope for Razer Phone 3

Razer and Tencent mobile partnership raises hope for Razer Phone 3

Gaming hardware maker Razer seems to be sending some fans mixed signals. It reportedly shuttered and reshuffled its employees away from its mobile division, causing concern over the future of the Razer Phone line. Now it has announced a partnership with Tencent, best known for publishing PUBG and Honor of Kings (a.k.a. Arena of Valor) to optimize the latter's games for the former's hardware. That, of course, has mobile gamers speculating that all hope is not lost and that a Razer Phone 3 might indeed be coming soon.

Xperia XZ3 DxOMark score makes the case for an Xperia 1

Xperia XZ3 DxOMark score makes the case for an Xperia 1

Sony has many businesses but, apparently, they don't like talking to each other that much, at least not the mobile and imaging ones. The internal rivalry between these two divisions has resulted in Xperia phones that, to be blunt, don't live up to the company's camera reputation. How bad is it? Almost a year later, DxOMark reviews the Xperia XZ3 and it lands near the bottom of the list, surpassed even by the ultra cheap Xiaomi Pocophone F1 or phones from 2017.
