Although the Galaxy S9 may not have the innovative features expected by the market, we are focusing on enhancing the completeness of the Galaxy S8 hardware and an innovative user experience (UX),
The Essential Phone is not necessarily a bad device, but it had some software issues at launch. Some of these problems have been corrected in the meantime, but there’s one thing that requires a bit more time – camera.
Coming as a separate accessory, the Essential Camera “benefits” from a UI and app that needs a lot of work just to reach the same level of quality of a standard flagship smartphone.
It appears that Essential understood that and released a couple of updates for the Essential Camera app, which adds some new features and corrects many issues.
The iPhone X and the Galaxy Note 8 are two of the hottest smartphones of 2017. Being the cream of the crop of the efforts of Apple and Samsung, the iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8 have a lot going on for them. Bezel-less design? Check. Awesome displays? Check. Super-fast hardware? Check. Dual cameras with great performance and new modes? Double check!
Apple is betting so hard on the added value of its inimitable TrueDepth camera kit that allows Face ID biometric unlocking and entertaining crowd-pleasers like Animojis, that it made several compromises with the look and app compatibility of the iPhone X (looking at you, notch-y top).
Currently, Apple offers 3D-sensing only on the front-facing TrueDepth Camera found on the Apple iPhone X. There is speculation that all three of Apple’s 2018 releases will include the front-facing TrueDepth camera along with next year’s iPad Plus. But a report published today indicates that by 2019, Apple has plans to offer 3D-sensing on the rear-facing iPhone camera as well. And the company is working on new technology that would be used instead of the currently employed dot projector that uses 30,000 laser dots to map a face.
The system being worked on for the rear-facing 3D-sensing …
Back in August, T-Mobile introduced the Revvl, a budget priced phone for T-Mobile customers who “want a boatload of features without spending a boatload.” The phone carries a 5.5-inch HD screen (720 x 1280 resolution), 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage, all powered by a 3000mAh battery. Priced at $150, the Revvl is a capable handset giving bargain hunters a lot of bang for their buck.
When the Revvl was unveiled, T-Mobile hinted that it planned on extending the line. That started today with the unveiling of the T-Mobile Revvl Plus. This time, the nation’s third largest carrier …
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.
We did hear that the “back of the Galaxy S9 will change a lot” from a leakster with a good track record last week, and, lo and behold, today’s alleged CAD renders of the handset are seemingly confirming this claim. Not that it comes as any surprise that the Galaxy S9 may follow in the footsteps of the Note 8, and be launched with a dual camera, but it was the sensor placement that was a mystery, and we even made a few renders with horizontal or vertical dual camera design, based on various rumors.
The Xperia XZ Premium is the first Sony smartphone to have received the Android 8.0 Oreo update, but other devices are expected to follow soon. However, the update contained a fix for a known camera issue that brought another problem with the camera.
Although it addressed the Xperia XZ Premium camera distortion issues, Android 8.0 Oreo broke the camera sensor’s functionality, which meant that the RGBC-IR and ToF (Laser AF) features were not working within the parameters.
In other words, most of the pictures captured with the Xperia XZ Premium were blurry …
Essential announced not long ago that customers who bought its 360 Camera module will be able to broadcast Facebook Live 360 directly from their Essential Phone. Considering the issues the Essential Phone’s camera has, that’s probably the last thing that those who purchased it would want.
Still, if you’re into 360-degree content and absolutely must capture your adventures using this format, you can do it if you have an Essential Phone and the 360 Camera released by the US-based company.
The latest 360 Camera update will now enable you to start a Live 360 …
