OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition Is Likely Why There’s Only One Color For 5T

Slowly but surely, it has announced a limited Lava Red version exclusively for China market and now, at the Comic Con India, it has announced a white edition that’s Star Wars branded.

Chinese Knockoff Apple iPhone X Looks Surprisingly Convincing

It is not new to find Apple iPhone the subject of copies, but there’s nothing more blatant than this recent iPhone X knockoff from, arguably the master of knockoff handsets, Little Pepper (小辣椒). At a glance at the company’s S11 handset, you’d be forgiven to think that it is an actual iPhone X because it looks freaking real, right down to the edge-to-edge display and the annoying notch on the top border. However, upon closer observation, you will find that not everything is what it appears to be. It is, in fact, not border-less. It was an illusion. The display did not stretch all the way to the bottom; it is in black to create the illusion of an edge-to-edge appearance.

There Is Going To Be An Android Phone That Isn’t A Smartphone

The point of Android OS is to make your smartphone, well, smart, so you can do a lot more things than making voice calls and send text messages. Having said that, it is only natural for one to come to conclusion, almost naturally, that an Android phone will be such, but that’s really not the case for NichePhone-S, an upcoming mobile phone (note, I said ‘mobile phone’) from Japanese company, FutureModel. NichePhone-S is, as the product name suggests, a very niche phone. Why? As you can see, it looks like a glorified calculator, but beneath that, Android 4.2 OS is breathing life to it. Despite so, it does nothing more than voice calls, text messages, and stream music. Continue reading There Is Going To Be An Android Phone That Isn’t A Smartphone

One of the ‘innovations’ Apple touts with the new iPhone X was wireless charging, but really, that ‘innovation’ is not an innovation. It has been a staple in many Android smartphones for years now and so, being a person of riches, why should you be seen using an “old technology.” I mean, come on, the iPhone X is in itself a luxury good, costing at least $999, so really it deserves a lot more “revolutionary” tech.
