It was OnePlus 5 launch week and you’ve probably seen a few too many videos on the darn thing before it even launched.

That was our lede last week. It still feels like OnePlus 5 launch week. So many comparisons and so much coverage and the litany doesn’t stop, as you’ll see in our news. Yes, there can be too much of a… bad thing?

We’ll also talk about that phone which shall no longer be named with The Technology Nerd Who Likes to Film Stuff, Erica Griffin! She’s also going to share her take on the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, a phone that can capture up to 960 frames per second and play back 4K like it means it.

Make sure you’re charged and ready for the Pocketnow Weekly!
