How far would you go to get a phone you really want? Beside paying through your nose, you probably won’t mind queuing for days outside of a store, just so you could get it sooner. At least that’s the norm these days, but one Razer fan, an Ohio man by the name of Matt Connelly, has taken it to a whole new level: tattooing the headshot of Razer co-founder and CEO, Tan Min-Liang on his leg. Why would anyone do that, you ask? Well, you see, it all began in November when Matt Connelly commented on Tan’s Facebook post with a strange request: Matt wants to tattoo Tan’s face on himself in exchange for a Razer phone and much to his surprise and delight, Tan actually agree, responding with “Lol sure – permanent tattoo and I’ll be sure to sign the box when I send it out!” Continue reading Man Tattoos Razer CEO’s Face On His Leg So He Could Get A Free Razer Phone
Ah… now we are beginning to see the big picture why OnePlus 5T was announced with just one color options, Midnight Black. It was probably a marketing stunt that will allow the handset maker to turn out ‘limited edition’ color for other markets. 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. This limited Star Wars edition is no doubt a celebratory device for the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie.

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.

Xiaomi has been bashed by many for blatantly copying other brands’ design, but unbeknownst to many, the seven-year-old China startup is also a victim of copycats. But hey, if we can get similar design and possibly, comparable quality for less, why the hell not? The DOOGEE Mix you see here is one such example.

Speaking of which, OnePlus has just announced its much anticipated “premium” flagship, the OnePlus 5T and boy, is it a beauty.

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.
