Well, it happened. Techies, you know what I mean. A little over a week ago, my daily driver breathed it’s unexpected last the same way almost every other Nexus 5x does. The infuriating startup of death. I was literally just listening to music on the bus, when it unexpectedly shut off. I truned it back […]Read More Nexus 5x- RIP review…
Meet the Pixel 2- a phone made by Google, built with the highest DxO mark score to ever be on a smartphone. With a smarter Google Assistant. An OLED screen. Stereo speakers. It’s most certainly nice. And it’s also what the Essential Phone that actually did what it’s supposed to. Run Stock Android. Have a […]Read More Meet the Pixel 2. Or the Essential Phone that was.
It’s October 4rth. Aka, it’s #madebygoogleday Which means, new Pixels. And here’s the realistic stuff we know about the Pixel 2, and how it matters. HTC and LG made the Pixel 2 series- LG’s manufacturing identity can be found in FCC Filings, and we saw Google pay $1.1 Billion dollars for a good chunk of […]Read More what we know about the pixel
We’re seeing a little more mesh on smarthome speakers these days. I’m serious. After the HomePod, we’ve been seeing leaks all over the place for Google’s new smart home assistant, and its made out of mesh. It’s also supposed to have great audio. But more importantly, has anyone noticed how the smart home speaker market […]Read More What’s going on with the new Echos?
Well, the leaks said it all. We all saw the iPhone X even before it launched, I guess. And I said this before- it was quite an over-hyped upgrade. Fast Charging? Cool. Wireless Charging? Cool. Bezel-killing screen? Also cool. A 2k display? Really cool. Face ID? Cool. Issue is- we’ve all seen these features before, […]Read More The iPhone – letdown or legend?
Why is everyone so hyped about the iPhone 8? Honestly, after a couple of links I just walked off. Why? Because although it’s going to be a big step for iPhone it’s not a big step for smartphones. That big step already happened on September 1st. I’ll get to that later. Anyways, as I was […]Read More iPhone 8 < Note 8. Or V20. You know where I'm getting at.
I know I’ve been kind of harsh to the iPhone, talking about it’s lack of competency when compared to the competition. But before all that, before Android could remotely have a shot at being the system it is today, there was something better. Something innovative. Something new. 10 Years and 1 day ago, Steve Jobs […]Read More iPhone- Happy 10th Birthday!
We all know that you can’t tell how good a book is from looking from it’s cover. But hey, you can get an idea. And the same goes with phone benchmarks, except, maybe just the taddiest bit…techier. And possibly for that reason, OnePlus modified their 3, 3T, and now, 5, to appear more powerful than […]Read More Strike III- OnePlus cheated on benchmarks. What the hell is happening?
For far less than a Samsung or an iPhone, one can get a generally faster, more innovative, sleeker, and prettier phone from this company called OnePlus. I’ve always been a fan of them, from the very first phone they released. And today, I’ve gotten to be a little bit more sceptical. OnePlus has taken a […]Read More OnePlus 5: Exciting specs, boring phone.
Oppo isn’t the first name you think of when we talk about budget smartphones, and r11 doesn’t really change that. It’s really a shrugged improvement over the R9, featuring an improved Snapdragon 660, paired with 6 Gigs of RAM as it’s most powerful option. The display is the normal 1080p resolution, and the battery level […]Read More Oppo R11: A shrugging iPhone 7.
