I’ll just get to the point with my little rant. If you’re going to sell an unlocked phone in the US, it needs to support all four major carriers – Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile (and Sprint, I guess). There’s no excuse at this point to keep riding the GSM-only train and the companies that do should be blackballed until they change their tune. If a brand like Alcatel can easily sell the Idol 5S (above) on Amazon for $279.99 that’s compatible with all US carriers, why does OnePlus continue with their GSM-only nonsense in a market they heavily push themselves in? Are they really not aware that Verizon is the biggest and most popular carrier in the country? Two words… Laziness and incompetence.
Despite launching to mixed reviews, the emergence of Essential has proved exciting to smartphone consumers and blogger alike. Constructed out of premium materials and running an almost stock build of the Android OS coupled with the recent discount to $399, the Essential Phone is reckoned to be the smart person’s Pixel 2. Which is why when Andy Rubin took a leave of absence at the end of November due to allegations of inappropriate behavior, there were some concerns about the longevity of Essential. A little less than two weeks later, Essential’s CEO and founder has returned to his post.
“When is my phone getting the Oreo update?” is a question many are asking right now, with manufacturers sometimes being less than transparent with their answers. For Honor phone owners at least, there is some good news on the matter, thanks to the company’s CEO, George Zao, confirming a list of Honor handsets scheduled to get the Android 8.0 Oreo update.

Back on October 4th when Google launched the new Pixel 2 phones (and other hardware), they introduced a cool feature called AR Stickers. This augmented reality camera mode allows you to insert 3D characters and objects into photos or videos, and there are two sticker sets available from arguably the most popular show and movie of the last couple of years: Stranger Things and Star Wars. The feature is now available for all Pixel phones.
Remember when the Google Home Mini launched and its touch sensor had to be disabled by the search giant because it recorded everything regardless of whether a trigger word was spoken or not? Well, it seems that Google isn’t willing to give up on the feature entirely, with at least some of the functionality being brought back in the latest preview firmware.
It was just last week that Google announced that it had begun rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo to Android Wear devices, starting with the LG Watch Sport. Now the search giant has posted a list of Android Wear watches that are eligible for the OS upgrade. Join us below to find if your smartwatch is one of the chosen few.
HTC being in a mess with their finances is no secret, but things really just don’t seem to ever improve for the company. Their latest financials are reporting a pretty significant drop in revenue for November, down a sizable 26% from last year.
HTC’s revenues for the month were about $188 million, slipping from $200 million in October. That news is even worse when you factor in November being an incredibly good month for moving product thanks to Black Friday and holiday shopping.
Nobody’s questioning whether or not the Galaxy S9 is real, but we are pretty curious about what Samsung plans on changing this time around. One of the things that might not change, however, is the aspect ratio of the display itself.
A new rumor suggests that we’ll once again see that extremely tall 18:5:9 aspect ratio that shipped with the Galaxy S8, keeping a vaguely similar design with 2018’s flagship.
If you’re rocking a OnePlus 5T, keep an eye out for the latest update that’s now rolling out from OnePlus. The update brings the device to Oxygen OS 4.7.4 (still on Android 7.1.1, however) with a few small fixes that should improve things for you.
Amazon is rolling out their Music Unlimited streaming service to more countries and bringing the Echo speaker lineup with it. This means more countries will be able to utilize Alexa and Amazon’s broad music catalog for streaming.
Good drawing tablets are hard to come across, but if you’re interested, Tomtop is offering a slick deal on a very nice option.
The Ugee 1910B is a 19-inch tablet that includes a drawing stylus with 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity, rivaling what Samsung pulls off with the Galaxy Note line. This tablet is a little more dedicated and professional, however.
I know what you are thinking; the world needs yet another music streaming service. For so long we’ve been limited to choosing between Spotify, Tidal, Google Play Music All Access, Apple Music, Pandora, YouTube Red, and the other ones we don’t have space to mention. As you can see, Google already has two music streaming services but that doesn’t seem to be enough for the search giant because Bloomberg has reported that it has plans to launch a third service called YouTube Remix in March 2018.
