HTC U11 Is A Beautiful Smartphone Designed To Be Squeezed

Who would have thought that the simple gesture of gripping a smartphone could be turned into something so much more? Well, that certainly is the case with HTC’s newest smartphone, U11. This Android 7.1-powered (with HTC Sense, naturally) 5.5-inch device comes with an innovative feature called Edge Sense that lets you take photos, launch your favorite apps, text on-the-go, access to voice assistants like Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa (yes, that too), and more, simply by squeezing the device. What you want the squeeze to trigger is really up to you configure. So, move over, knock-to-wake, cos’ squeezing sounds like a lot more fun.

Meitu Is Selling Sailor Moon-Themed M8 With ‘Moon Stick’ Selfie Stick

You probably won’t turned into a girly middle-school Japanese student with a magical cat that bestowed her with the power to save the world under the alter-ego Sailor Moon with the Meitu Sailor Moon Pretty Warrior Edition M8 smartphone, but you sure can look the part and best of all, still make calls, text, and a bunch of other stuff a smartphone does these days.

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.

Guess What? Xiaomi’s New Mi 6 Has No Headphone Jack Too

I don’t think Apple did pull off the no headphone jack thing. Some users are still sore about it and despite so, it is not going to stop China handset maker, Xiaomi, from doing the same. Yes. You heard that right. Xiaomi’s latest flagship, the Mi 6, has no headphone jack. I don’t know if it go down well with China users, so, I guess we just have to wait it out and see how the masses react to this ‘devastating news’. The shock of no headphone jack aside, Mi 6 does bring some good news to those tight on budget but still wanting the latest in mobile processing because the Mi 6 is the first Chinese handset to flaunt Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 System-on-Chip, a much sought after chip that has so far seen on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium with 4K HDR display. Continue reading Guess What? Xiaomi’s New Mi 6 Has No Headphone Jack Too

China’s Maze Mobile Teases Sexy Bezel-less Smartphone Called Alpha

We suspect bezel-less is going to be the next big thing in the smartphone industry. To be honest, I am surprise the bezel-less fad hasn’t catch on since two years ago when Sharp debuted the near bezel-less AQUOS Crystal. Even with several manufacturers (you know, like Nubia, Ubik and the likes) touting bezel-less as a design feature between then and now, bezel-less is not as mainstream as we have hoped. We certainly will love to see bezel-less becomes a norm and hopefully, with the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, it (bezel-less) will go mainstream.

Samsung Galaxy S8 And S8+ Announced, Sports Expansive Bezel-less Display

So, the moment loyal Samsung fans have been waiting for has just came and went. We are talking about the much anticipated new Galaxy device, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S8+. I don’t even know where to begin. Perhaps, I will just go with the hard details like the design and tech specs cos’ software is, as always, Samsung kind of heavy and I suspect, many functions will not be touched by average users. Now, on with the designs and specs. First foremost, Samsung Mobile is certainly a certified curved screen addict because the S8 and the larger ‘+’ model are sticking to the ‘safe’ curve screen design, but it is now bezel-less and has a fancy name called Infinity display. Continue reading Samsung Galaxy S8 And S8+ Announced, Sports Expansive Bezel-less Display

OnePlus 3T Gets Sexy Midnight Black Hue, Available In Limited Quantity

OnePlus must be feeling the heat of the competitions. Perhaps, from mainstreamers like Samsung who is gearing up to announce the electronics giant’s latest flagship this week. Why? The independent company (who’s actually affiliated to Oppo, pffff…) had announced a successor to the OnePlus 3, the OnePlus 3T, barely six months after the 3 was unveiled. And just last week, we found another piece of news in our inbox: OnePlus 3T now has a new Midnight Edition which, in addition to limited online availability, OnePlus has collaborated with colette and Hypebeast to retail this very limited and arguably, sexy matte black iteration of the 3T. Continue reading OnePlus 3T Gets Sexy Midnight Black Hue, Available In Limited Quantity

Seriously, You Guys Should Check Out The OS On This “Less Distraction” Phone

At this point, most people are slaves to their smartphone. I attribute this observation as a transitional phase of humans picking up new habits which, as with many changes in history, is hard to accept as the future. Just think of the time when digital camera was introduced. Back then, some photographers had their hands up in the air with comments like “are those even real cameras?” But as time has proven, digital imaging is the future and not an option. I think you get the idea. Continue reading Seriously, You Guys Should Check Out The OS On This “Less Distraction” Phone

Huawei Flagships P10 And P10+ Have Leica Camera On The Front Too

And when thought handset maker like Huawei is content with awesome Leica-engineered main camera, the China communication titan have its newest flagships, P10 and P10+, equipped with a Leica front camera – and that’s addition to the Leica Dual rear shooter. How well those performance remains to be seen, but theoretically, it should be pretty up there and a brilliant news for Leica fans, maybe? Anywho, Hybrid Zoom is in order too and so is 3D facial detection. Huawei is really banging on the duo. The handset giant also go to length to coat the devices with specially selected Pantone colors co-created with Pantone Color Institute: Pantone Greenery and Dazzling Blue, which the company described as “captivating deep blue shade.” Tasty. Continue reading Huawei Flagships P10 And P10+ Have Leica Camera On The Front Too

Network Equipment Maker TP-LINK Showcased New Smartphones At MWC

If you didn’t already know, TP-LINK, a company better known for making network equipment, has been making smartphones since 2015 under the brand called Neffos. Hmm, even a router maker? I guess the smartphone market pie is too huge to ignore? Maybe. The company took to this year’s MWC to showcase its products for, you know, exposure’s sake and among them are a pair of newer handsets, the 5-inch Neffos X1 and the 5.5-inch Neffos X1 Max. Some of you in Europe, S.E. Asia, and Middle East, may have already come across the former as it is already available in those markets. The X1 Max, on the other hand, will only be available in the same markets in Q2. Continue reading Network Equipment Maker TP-LINK Showcased New Smartphones At MWC
