    Most new device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review. Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the same time. It’s a huge frenzy, commenters go nuts, and it’s a giant explosion of frantic opinion-sharing activity. For about … a day. And then it all goes away. Sure, there’s followup coverage as people find bugs and hidden features, but after that initial blast, not ...

    It's a common gripe from smartphone owners. At some point, after the "new phone smell" has worn off, people will start to complain about performance and battery life. We use mobile devices pretty aggressively these days. Think back to where we were five years ago, and we have to acknowledge that we have seen steady and consistent growth in battery technology and capacity. It's pretty normal these days to have a shockingly thin handset which also backs a respectably large battery. The problem is, battery tech hasn't improved at the same rate that display, CPU, and GPU performance have ...

    At at time when storage plays a big roll in the peace of mind that most of us need while we work, solid state drives have become quite popular. In that sense 2016 is a very good year, mainly because most of these SSDs have become extremely portable, and have now even extended their reach to mobile devices, and not just computers. Such is the case of the Samsung T3 SSD. The only problem of the average SSD is its price tag, but once you match the added convenience of the T3, you might be looking into a must-have product. Watch our quick look video as we take a look.

    The approach to special edition phones is not new, with cases like Samsung launching a batman phone and pricing it for a staggering amount of money for just a different logo at the back. Oppo hasn't really focused on super hero phones, but instead on devices that cater to the sports lover in you. As a result, Oppo's approach to the F1 Plus Barcelona Edition is a different story to what we see elsewhere. If you're an FC Barcelona fan, the Oppo F1 Plus special edition is probably one of the coolest sports-oriented gadgets we've seen in a while. Watch our full video to learn more.

    Those who have stuck with Turing for the long run have been waiting on final shipping dates. Forget the fact that the company switched out a secured version of Android for Sailfish OS or even the fact this Turing Phone has "liquid metal" or whatever, you've waited nearly a year for this device with good money sunk into it, you're going to get it. Well, you probably got an email from Turing today with a tacit acknowledgment that it blew another vague shipping deadline. But the interesting news here is that the company gave a specific date for when the boxes start flying out of the door: ...

In picking which phone to compare, we decided to stay in the Android ecosystem, and opted for the most popular handset of the first half of 2016. If ...

    Never settle! Flagship killer! OnePlus makes some bold comments regarding its phones. On this third iteration, are there compromises to make when buying a phone for $400? Our Real Camera Review series looks to raise the bar on how we talk about smartphone cameras. These days, it's not a severe compromise for many people to use their phones as their main photography solution, so we're aiming to talk photos and videos for phones in the same way we would for a standalone camera. For the OnePlus 3, we've got a 16MP sensor, which is a bit more pixel dense than the trend of 12MP cameras found on ...

    The OnePlus 3 was put on a leash with its six hearty gigabytes memorizing fewer apps than it was capable of in an effort to be power-efficient. As a result, we learned that it wasn't as fast as it could be loading and keeping open apps and games when compared to the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. XDA dug in to figure out a tweak that could radically change how the OnePlus 3 handled its RAM. One switch in a string of code later, what else would switch? C4ETech did the initial speedtest comparison and has done another with the tweak turned on. Spoiler alert, the OnePlus 3 has the S7 edge by a ...
