OnePlus 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S8 selfie comparison: Let's go on an adventure

Here’s a scenario: you’re at a party and someone drunkedly proclaims “let’s take a selfie!” Everyone is on board, obviously, despite the terribleness of the idea (it’s never fun waking up and seeing those 70+ likes on a picture you don’t remember posting). But here’s the big question: which phone do you use?

The following article will most definitely not answer that question — unless your friends group is exclusively limited to Samsung Galaxy S8 or OnePlus 5 users, of course. However, it will hopefully point you in the right direction of what to …

LG Q6+, Q6, Q6a vs Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 vs Nokia 6: specs comparison

LG just announced the Q-lineup of devices, featuring the Q6, the Q6+, and the Q6a, which takes a few pages from the LG G6′ book and borrows that FullVision 2:1 display that LG is quite proud of. 
Granted, the efficient screen-to-body size ratio, the slim bezels, and the lack of a camera bump at the rear of the device could very well be the biggest highlights of the Q6 lineup, as the rest of the hardware specs are not exactly what we’d call exciting and awe-inspiring. On top of that, the lack of fingerprint scanners on any of these devices is a let-down, …

OnePlus 5 fails at 4K video stabilization: comparison vs Apple iPhone 7 Plus

The OnePlus 5 is the new kid on the flagship smartphone block, but how does it do when it comes to 4K video recording? We test its video stabilization (or lack thereof) against the popular Apple iPhone 7 Plus. Keep in mind that the OnePlus 5 lacks optical image stabilization (OIS) and relies on electronic IS only, while the iPhone 7 Plus support both OIS and EIS.

Even the slightest trembling of the hand results in an earthquake-like commotion on screen

And the results are… disappointing. At least for the OnePlus 5 that is. …

And rightfully so — anyone that has ever charged its compliant OnePlus device with the dedicated Dash Charger knows that you are extremely unlikely to live that wall hugger life. The company promises “a full day of power in half an hour”, and for the most part, this promise does not stray away from reality.
Of course, one of the key bells and whistles of the all-new OnePlus 5 is Dash Charge, and albeit it’s not a new feature per say, …

So, iOS 11 is finally official. Showcased on stage at WWDC 2017, it’s another evolutionary chapter that fine-tweaks the user experience and aims to make it a more customizable and at the same time a that much more pleasurable ordeal.
Has it succeeded? We think so. If anything, most of the new iOS features have been requested for a long time and will likely find a warm welcome with all the iFans out there.

Moto Z2 Play vs Moto Z Play: battery life comparison and all other differences

The new Moto Z2 Play is out, and it’s an impressive $500 phone: cheaper than a flagship, yet touting some unique Moto Mods, a clean design and the promise of great battery life.
But how does it compare to last year’s Moto Z Play, a phone that ranked as ‘the best battery phone’ by many.

15% smaller battery than the original in exchange for thinness

Well, the Moto Z2 Play also has a super power efficient battery chip: the new Snaprdagon 626 built on a 14nm architecture, a key component to delivering excellent …

Tipster SlashLeaks has posted a picture that allegedly reveals molds that will be used in the production of the 2017 iPhone lineup. That includes the Apple iPhone 7s, Apple iPhone 7s Plus and the 10th anniversary edition dubbed the Apple iPhone 8. The image tells us how big each model will be compared to the other units.

Now, you might expect that the Apple iPhone 8, with its rumored 5.8-inch display, would be the largest. Instead, it is only slightly bigger …
