Here is why you can't find your favorite Nokia-branded smartphone yet

It’s true that HMD promised to bring all three Nokia-branded smartphones in just about every meaningful market by the end of June. Unfortunately, the Finnish company has yet to achieve what it said in its previous statements.

Although it might be that many countries have already received one or two of the Nokia smartphones, stocks are dwindling, and HMD is hardly able to keep up with the high demand.

If you’ve already purchased the Nokia 3 or 5, then you can consider yourself lucky, as HMD is now gathering data from suppliers and will announce new release …

More evidence points to OnePlus 5 having its display mounted upside down

The OnePlus 5 has been the talk of the town since it’s been released on the market. The so-called “flagship killer” has a issue with the display that many users are experiencing.

The issue is known as “jelly scrolling,” and no one is certain what’s causing the odd problem that some OnePlus 5 users have been reported in the last couple of days.

Although not all OnePlus 5 devices are affected by the issue, those who do are quite disappointed by the fact that the Chinese company didn’t deliver a flawless product. On top of that, OnePlus recently issued …

Moto E4 goes on sale in the US via Amazon, Republic Wireless and Ting

The Moto E4 has just made its debut in the United States as Verizon earlier this week. Unlike many of the company’s smartphones, this one will be available on Amazon for a much lower price. Also, Republic Wireless and Ting carriers are selling the mid-range smartphone as well, but for different prices.

For example, Amazon now offers the Moto E4 for just $99.99, but the smartphone is exclusively available to Prime Members at this price. Even though it comes unlocked with support for most US carriers, including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon, you’ll have to …

Mobile Phones; Pretty in Pink

For the fashion conscious amongst us, it’s often been the shape and the way our mobile phones flip and stay open which has been the most important and most appealing factor when committing to a new contract or pay-as-you-go phone.

Now it seems that the colour of the handset carries as much weight in consumer’s minds; with many choosing to go pink when upgrading our purchasing a phone for the first time. Surprisingly pink’s not just a hit with teenage girls but with gadget lovers worldwide.

Like any industry, mobile phone manufacturers have to act fast. Spotting a trend and getting it released as soon as possible is a hard task but something they have to face everyday. Manufacturers have picked up on this and have begun to release their handsets in a variety of colours, sometimes only available in pink.

If we look at what phones are available; Motorola seems to stand out by far. With its already popular RAZR handset, they were soon to release it in a variety of colours – one of these being ‘Hot Pink’. After the popularity of this phone, we were also introduced to the Motoslvr L6 Pink which was aimed at a market that wanted simplicity but with a hint of pink.

Nokia have been particularly successful in this area, collaborating with the designer Cath Kidson to produce a range of hand-painted effect phones to compliment their existing range of handsets.

Like any colours in the fashion world, they soon start to fade and with Apple’s iPhone becoming the next style icon will we see White making its way to the next mobiles phones catwalk?

Plus one OnePlus 5 quirk: left and right audio channels get inverted in stereo recordings

In addition to lots of hardware muscle, the OnePlus 5 seems to have no shortage of weird usability problems, too. We have been reporting about shaky scrolling, loss of Wi-Fi signal reception (when holding the handset a particular way), and poor video stabilization. Now here’s another black mark – and it’s as strange as it can be!

During filming, when recording sound using the OnePlus 5’s built-in mic, holding the smartphone in landscape orientation with the Home button pointed left results in a stereo recording where the left and right audio channels are inverted. The effect is clearly …

OnePlus promises to fix the jelly effect on the OnePlus 5, but can it really?

As more customers complain their OnePlus 5 devices are affected by the “jelly scrolling” issue, the Chinese company is trying to address the problem. After claiming earlier this week the so-called jelly effect is in fact “natural,” OnePlus support is now saying that its engineers are working to address the problem.

Even if OnePlus seems quite optimistic about dealing with the issue (yes, it’s an issue), its engineers might not be able to do anything about it. We reported earlier today that the main reason the jelly scrolling problem affects the OnePlus 5 could be …

Sony to introduce a "truly" bezel-less phone on August 31st just prior to IFA?

According to a posting on Weibo, Sony will be unveiling a “truly bezel-less” handset at IFA in Berlin. Sony has already announced an event scheduled for August 31st, the day before the 2017 version of the trade show is scheduled to begin. This all ties in with an announcement made earlier this month by Japan Display (JDI), introducing a 6-inch “Full Active” display with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. Considering that JDI is owned by Sony, Toshiba and Hitachi, it would make sense for Sony to be the first to employ the new display.

If this report is true, Sony will …
