OnePlus 3 and 3T now receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update

The moment you’ve all been waiting for has finally come, as OnePlus announced the highly-anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo update is now available for two of its popular flagship: OnePlus 3 and 3T.

Two months ago OnePlus released a beta version of Android 8.0 Oreo for OnePlus 3, but the update was available to a limited number of users. However, the company promised to make the update available to everyone by the end of the year.

Although we can’t say the same thing about the newly announced OnePlus 5T, it makes perfect sense for the Chinese company to choose …

Prepare to get your behind kicked: Shadow Fight 3 is out, smooth as ever, less shadowy

When it comes to fighting games for mobile devices, you really don’t have a lot of options. One title that definitely sticks out due to its quality and control scheme has been Shadow Fight 2. It was developed exclusively for mobile, it had super-smooth animations, and controls which didn’t work terribly bad, considering all you have is a touchscreen.

Well, just yesterday, a new game in the series was released — Shadow Fight 3. Is it a better game or more of the same?

It is most certainly a noteworthy upgrade. The game is bigger, better, with entirely new …

Several Apple Watch Series 3 devices crashed when asked about the weather

If you own the Apple Watch Series 3, both the LTE and non-LTE models, be careful about asking Siri about the weather for the current day. Several owners of the timepiece have had the device crash on them simply by asking Siri for a forecast covering that day’s weather. Curiously, inquiries about the weather for future dates won’t take down the Apple Watch; only requests for “today’s weather” will cause the wearable to crash.
On Reddit, a number of people complained about the same problem, and one Reddit user figured that the issue might be related to the end of …

Internal Apple memo says that "edge stripes" are appearing on some Apple Watch series 3 units

These “edge stripes” appear on the non-cellular version of the smartwatch. The cellular models might have been spared because they use a different display assembly than the affected watches.

Anyone bringing an Apple Watch series 3 model to the Genius Bars and Apple Authorized Service Providers complaining about the “edge stripes,” will be asked to rub the display with their finger. If this …

DJI Osmo Mobile vs Feiyu-Tech SPG vs Zhiyun Smooth 3: smartphone gimbals

Optical image stabilization, OIS for short, has done wonders for smartphone cameras. Once regarded as a luxury amongst few camera-centric phones, it has gone on to become prevalent throughout the range. And nowadays, it’s almost unfathomable for any high-end device to lack it – so it’s just that commonplace, which is amazing to say the least.

They’ve proven their worth, obviously, as they’ve been able to stabilize otherwise shaky looking video footage that would almost certainly make them unusable for professional use. While OIS has been touted by some manufactures to deliver …
