Watch the top 5 carrier ads: T-Mobile spent $30 million for the Netflix spot, still couldn't beat Verizon

Hot on the heels of T-Mobile giving away Netflix streaming to its subscribers came the rumor that Sprint may offer Hulu in its turn, and Verizon might be exploring free content, too. Well, T-Mobile made this a big selling point last quarter, so how much exactly has it spent on popularizing its generosity with the “Netflix on us” spot? No less than $30 million, it seems, judging from the recap of the wireless ad TV spending for last month.

That’s still just a chunk of the total estimated $271 million that 18 brands gave for advertising in October, up …

The OnePlus 5T is leaking left and right like crazy, with an unofficial unboxing making the rounds some two days ago and a full specs sheet popping up online, seemingly revealing everything there is to know about the upcoming flagship device. But the leaks are not stopping still.

German website heise.de seems to have secured a OnePlus 5T prior to the device’s official announcement on November 16 and has already posted a brief camera comparison between the 5T and its predecessor, the OnePlus 5.
The big news here is that OnePlus has reportedly ditched …

The OnePlus 5T will be more expensive than the OnePlus 5

Ever since the first rumors of a OnePlus 5T started circulating, a couple of questions have been on our minds — what kinds of hardware upgrades should we expect over the OnePlus 5 and are we going to see another price hike?

The OG OnePlus One launched with a $299 price tag, but every consecutive model has seen a small increase in cost. That’s how we ended up with a $479 price for the OnePlus 5, which, to be fair, is still an amazing deal, considering the current climate in the smartphone world.

Last year’s OnePlus 3T had a base price increase of $40, …

Honor V10 bezel-less smartphone with 6GB RAM, dual-camera to be unveiled on December 5

Some of you might remember that we reported last month about a launch event that Honor plans to hold on December 5. Although the Chinese company sent us an invitation to the event, it didn’t reveal what device will be unveiled early next month. The only thing we knew for certain is that Honor will introduce a bezel-less smartphone.

Well, it looks like the folks over at GizChina have managed to learn more details about what’s coming for Honor fans. Apparently, Honor V10 is the name of the device that will be announced on December 5.

Honor’s new flagship is supposed to boast a 5.99-inch …

Will the OnePlus 5T be more expensive than the OnePlus 5? New report says no

 

The OnePlus 5T will be announced on November 16 and released
on November 21 – OnePlus itself confirmed these details yesterday. The company
also said that the phone would bring “a new view” – most likely, this
is a vague confirmation of the fact that the handset has a 6-inch screen with 1080
x 2160 pixels and thin bezels, an obvious departure from the 5.5-inch, 1080 x
1920 pixels screen of the OnePlus 5.  

 

We recently assumed that the OnePlus 5T would be more
expensive than the OnePlus 5 – not just because of its new design and larger
screen, but also because OnePlus has …

Here is a picture of the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T stacked together

OnePlus is readying yet another flagship smartphone for the remainder of the year. Although initial reports claimed the Chinese company there won’t be a OnePlus 5T model this year, in light of the new teasers published by OnePlus, there’s no doubt such a smartphone exists and will be announced very soon.

To make things even more obvious, OnePlus posted a picture of its current and upcoming flagships stacked together. What you see in the picture is the rear side of the OnePlus 5, which hides the entire silhouette of the OnePlus 5T.

The only thing we can tell …

HTC to deliver 5 or 6 phones in 2018

Yesterday, we passed along a report that said HTC will go back to producing phones with dual camera setups, starting in 2018. You might recall 2014’s HTC One (M8), which had a second camera on back allowing for the blurred background on portrait shots that we all crave these days. Today, we have a little more information on the volume of phones that HTC plans on rolling off the assembly line next year.

HTC President Chialin Chang says to expect his company to produce five to six different handsets in 2018. HTC is hoping to build on a very strong 2017 which saw the manufacturer release its …

How to change the ringtone on your iPhone 8, 8 Plus, X with a custom one: 5 visual guides

So, you’ve got an iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus? Good for you, but how are you liking the default ringtone, which is by now so ingrained into our society that we are frantically checking our phones once we hear the well-known rhythm of Opening. 
To be honest, changing the ringtone on your iPhone is a task that looks deceptively simple, but has its own quirky moments, especially if you are a fan of little-known anti-consumerist music bands from the 70s and would love your iPhone to ring with the sounds of first-gen punk music, like The Mekons’ “Empire of the …

OnePlus 5T vs OnePlus 5: 5 differences and new features to expect

Last year’s OnePlus 3 was an all-around great phone at a great price, but only five months after its release, its maker launched an even better model. OnePlus 3T – that’s what it was called, as “T” comes after “S”, apparently. It brought meaningful improvements in the form of camera, processor, and battery upgrades, but also carried a higher price.
This year’s OnePlus 5 is also getting the “T” treatment, if rumors are to be believed. Not a single detail about the OnePlus 5T (or OnePlus 6, perhaps?) is official at this point, but we think we have an idea …
