OnePlus 5 Unveiled, Has Dual-camera And Looks Suspiciously Like An iPhone 7

I kid you not. At a glance, you may mistaken the new OnePlus latest smartphone, the OnePlus 5, as an iPhone 7. Seriously, if those curved edges don’t remind you have the iPhone 7, then perhaps the striking antenna bands at the top and bottom of the device would. Granted, the curved edges aren’t completely roundish like the iPhone 7, but still… Also, it has a dual camera setup too, complete with the ability to do iPhone 7 much advertised, Portrait Mode, and it is offered in a choice of “slate gray” or “midnight black” to boot, but with a slight twist. But more on that later. Whatever happen to OnePlus’s pride and joy, the signature sandstone finish? Continue reading OnePlus 5 Unveiled, Has Dual-camera And Looks Suspiciously Like An iPhone 7

Will You Buy A Samsung Pirates of the Caribbean-Themed Galaxy S8?

When Marvel/Disney decided to go big in promoting Marvel movies, collaborating with Samsung for an Iron Man-themed Galaxy S6, we totally understand why. After all, Iron Man and the Avengers were and are still huge contributors to Disney’s coffer, but Pirates of the Caribbean? Not to belittle the Pirates franchise I personally enjoy watching, or Johnny Depp or Jerry Bruckheimer, but we didn’t think it warrant such a treatment. Nevertheless, here it is, the Samsung Pirates of the Caribbean Galaxy S8. As expected, this special edition phone is everything the standard Galaxy S8 is, which means everything about is identical to the standard device, save for some cosmetic touches.

Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone Also Don’t Believe In Headphone Jack Too

Strange. I remember we did wrote about Android’s creator, Andy Rubin, foray into handset making. I guess, the truth is, we did indeed missed that piece. Anyways, after much anticipation (or not), Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone is finally almost ready for the mass market. From the get go, the Essential PH-1 looks like an exquisite bespoke product. I mean, just look at it. Ok, maybe it is just another phone draped in an all-too-common dark hue, but check out the materials: titanium for body and ceramic around the back. Say it isn’t exquisite on the get go? Continue reading Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone Also Don’t Believe In Headphone Jack Too

World’s First Clear Samsung Galaxy S8 Made Possible With Some Sacrifices

JerryRigEverything, the man who is now better known for his penchant for destructing smartphones and/or turning them into clear-back examples is back at it again. This time, he took a perfectly new Samsung Galaxy S8 and gave it a gleaming, transparent back. And how did he managed to pull it off? Well, from the looks of it, it wasn’t a simple task and it is surely a ‘mod’ that should not be attempted by anyone who have absolutely no idea of what they are doing. In other words, please don’t this at all. Even though we don’t encourage the act of smartphone cruelty, we can’t deny it is pretty dope to be able to see the inside of a Samsung Galaxy S8.
