Speaking of which, OnePlus has just announced its much anticipated “premium” flagship, the OnePlus 5T and boy, is it a beauty. This beauty is a result of a combination of an immersive 6-inch “Full Optic AMOLED” display with an 18:9 aspect ratio that consumed almost the entire front of the device and a seamless anodized aluminum unibody.

I am not going to lie. I get bored with my phone easily. Not with the features and functions though; it is more with the look. Maybe I shouldn’t look at my phone so many times in day. But I can’t help it cos’ I am a gadget zombie. That’s probably why I uses a case or skin as a pathetic attempt to change the look. But as it turns out, I don’t have to. There is actually an Android smartphone out there that allows you and I to change the look of the device as and when we feel like it without bumping up the device size like it would when used with a cover. So, I guess its a ‘yay’? Continue reading Is This The Most Customizable Android Smartphone In The Market Right Now?
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. And this, folks, is why there’s the Caviar iPhone X Tesla. Continue reading Who Needs Wireless Charging On iPhone X When It Can Charges Itself?

With all the hustle and bustle over the new iPhones, new Google Phone and even more recently, the ZTE dual screen phone and Huawei AI-ready Mate devices, it is easy to forget that there are other good handset makers out there. One of these ‘good handset makers’ would be Lenovo-owned Motorola Mobility. Speaking of which, we would like to draw your attention to its latest, super sleek handset, the moto X4 (stylized as X4), which is very cool, btw). It is not the thinnest phone around. Not even remotely close, but for some reasons, the anodized aluminum and wraparound glass design and the different-from-most-handset-makers dual camera setup on its contoured back makes us want to take several more looks at the device. Continue reading Motorola moto x4 Is Sleek, IP68 Rated, Lets You Use Alexa Without Unlocking
Before a real foldable smartphone promised by Samsung becomes a reality next year, China handset maker ZTE has a “foldable” smartphone to offer to eager early adopters. Called ZTE Axon M Dual Screen Foldable Smartphone, it is not quite the foldable device most of us have in mind. Instead of a foldable display, it gets, as the product name implies, two separate display. Axon M second display opens up in the fashion of a flip phone, but instead of opening up in portrait orientation, it opens up landscape wise. The star of the show is clearly the dual display setup, each coming in at 5.2-inch and at 1080p FHD boosting 426ppi, overlaid with Corning Gorilla Gen 5.

Normally there’s really nothing to talk about because, they are just processor, but today, that changes when Huawei Consumer Business Group introduced its first AI mobile chipset, the Kirin 970.

Microsoft, unfortunately, did not catch up in the game of smartphone. For those who are too young to remember, Microsoft was in the smartphone game way before iOS and Android. So, yes, the software did had a mobile Windows OS which was then known as Windows CE. But being one of the pioneers does not automatically grant Microsoft an edge. However, it does make one wonder “what if there was a smartphone running the once-popular Windows OS?” Well, imagine no more, my friends, because UI/UX designer Henrique Perticarati already imagined it on our behalf.
