Nokia is back. The phone company that dominated the early 2000s has been resurrected and we have both smartphones and feature phones like the re-imagined Nokia 3310 available for purchase, but how popular are they and are they selling well?
HMD Global introduced the first Nokia phones in February 2017 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and ever since than it has sold “millions” smartphones and “tens of millions” features phones, according to the company’s own Pekka Rentala. This official confirmation came on September 2nd and accounted …


Analyst cuts his forecast of 2017 Apple iPhone X production by 10%

According to a tech executive who is “in the know” when it comes to the production of the Apple iPhone X, the complex 3D sensors used on Face ID are still causing a major problem in the manufacturing of the device. Not terribly long ago, a financial newswire said that Apple’s yield for the iPhone X was 10%. To put that in perspective, it means that 90% of the units rolling off of the assembly line are failing to meet Apple’s standards. 

The anonymous tech executive says that the dot projector, part of the TrueDepth Camera system, is responsible for the production delays. This is seconded …

Don't you worry, Huawei Mate 10 will come with Android 8.0 Oreo

Huawei continues to tease information about its flagship and the next thing the Chinese company has decided to talk about is the OS that comes pre-installed on the Mate 10. Just like its predecessor, the Mate 10 will be Huawei’s first smartphone to ship with Android 8.0 Oreo on board.

Its bigger brother, the Mate 10 Pro is likely to run the same version of Android, but we’re not so sure about the Mate 10 Lite. The smartphone was already introduced in Asia under different names, but Oreo is not something that’s listed among the technical specifications.

New render of Huawei Mate 10 Pro features "live" image showing off the lock screen

Yesterday, we showed you a couple of renders revealing the Huawei Mate 10 Pro in two different colors. The phablet, along with the Huawei Mate 10, is set to be unveiled on October 16th. This morning, we have another render of the Mate 10 Pro to show you, although this time the image shows off the phone’s lock screen on the 5.99-inch LCD display. The image comes to us from leak master Evan Bass. The screen carries an aspect ratio of 18:9, a resolution of 1440 x 2880, and there are no physical buttons on the front of the phone. The fingerprint scanner is on the back of the Mate 10 Pro, along …

Retailer confirms Huawei Mate 10 Lite launches in Europe in early November for €349

Huawei Mate 10 is just around the corner, but the flagship won’t come alone. The Chinese company plans to launch many a few derivatives of its Mate 10 meant to cover all price tiers.

The Mate 10 Lite is the mid-range version of Huawei’s flagship. Even though it will retain some the Mate 10 specs like the 18:9 aspect ratio of the display and the amount of memory, it fails to check all the boxes required for a top-tier handset.

For example, Huawei Mate 10 Lite will be powered by a 3,340 mAh battery, whereas the Mate 10 comes with a much larger 4,000 mAh battery. …

When and how to watch the Huawei Mate 10 launch event livestream

The Huawei Mate 10 is almost here — and Huawei is very eager to show it off, as evidenced by the outrageous amount of teasers the company’s social media accounts have been putting out.

So if you want to be one of the first people to see Huawei’s latest device series (which are totally not smartphones), make sure to check back here on Monday, October 16th, 2017 at:

How to improve battery life on your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus: 10 tips and tricks (+1 bonus)

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are already out and you may already have one in your hands. Congratulations on the new device! The new iPhones are not only incredibly powerful, thanks to the new Bionic chips, but are also the longest-lasting iPhones we’ve put through our battery life test.

10 and a half hours of screen on time for the large Plus variant and 8 and a half hours for the regular-sized iPhone 8 are absolutely nothing to snark at. In fact, these numbers will probably last the average user well enough and will keep power users grinning for most of the day.

But, …

Microsoft's Belfiore puts the final nails into the Windows 10 Mobile coffin

For many, Microsoft executive Joe Belfiore was the face of Windows Phone. He made important contributions to the development of the platform, having a hand in the creation of the Metro UI, Live Tiles and Cortana. That is why he created an uproar by using an Apple iPhone and a Samsung Galaxy S7 as his daily drivers during a 9-month leave of absence from Microsoft. Belfiore used the time to travel around the world.

Currently, the Microsoft executive uses a Samsung Galaxy S8 loaded with Microsoft software. In a series of tweets that Belfiore disseminated today, he blamed the app gap as the …

Huawei Mate 10 Pro rumor review: design, specs, price, and everything else we know so far

After releasing its P10 and P10 Plus flagships in the early months of this year, Chinese phone maker Huawei is preparing to end 2017 with a bang. In case you haven’t heard, this “bang” will come in the form of Huawei’s Mate 10 series.
So, what makes the Mate lineup special? Well, the “go big or go home” philosophy that the company adopts when designing and manufacturing these phones. The presently available Mate 9 can be seen as a perfect example of this approach – the large phablet packs a 5.9-inch screen, powerful hardware, a Leica-branded dual main camera, and …

Huawei confirms 4,000 mAh battery for its Mate 10 flagship

We’re less than two weeks away from Huawei’s big unveiling event and the Chinese company has picked up the pace concerning teasers. The Mate 10, and possibly all its other models, are going to be almost similarly specced, so there will be a couple of differences.

However, the battery might not be one of the components that will be different depending on the model. We suspect the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro will come with the same battery inside, but we have yet to confirm the information.

What we do know for certain is the fact that Huawei has decided to include …
