2017 has been a great year for smartphones. Not only because we saw a drastic jump towards the futuristic bezel-less designs that used to be just a dream, but also because said designs are quickly making their way down to the lower, more affordable tiers. And, as you probably know, there are some manufacturers out there, for whom “budget” doesn’t necessarily …

Some Apple iPhone X units have a strange green line running down the edge of the display

Some Apple iPhone X users are finding a strange green line running down the outer right or left edge of the OLED panel on the device. One theory is that a problem with the electrical system is causing multiple lines of green sub-pixels to light up on the screen, starting from the top of the display to the bottom. You might recall that last year, a similar pink line marred the screen of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. Samsung determined that the issue was caused by a hardware problem. Last year, several Motorola DROID Turbo 2 owners also complained about a vertical green line that appeared on their …

More evidence suggests Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) will come with Infinity Display

It looks like Samsung has big plans for its upcoming Galaxy A (2018) series. The South Korean company is expected to completely redesign the lineup, but also upgrade some of the phones’ components.

Unlike the current Galaxy A smartphones, the future ones are expected to pack the so-called Infinity Display, which was made popular with the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+.

We heard about that back in September when a set of cases for the Galaxy A5 (2018) and the Galaxy A7 (2018) leaked online suggested these smartphones will feature bezel-less displays and rear-mounted …

image source: 9to5Google

Screen burn-in is one of the unfortunate realities of OLED. Manufacturers are well-aware of this shortcoming, and yet, at this point at least, there is not much that can be done to completely prevent it hardware-wise. However, there’s always the option of mitigating the issue through software, and that’s exactly what Google is trying to do for its Pixel lineup of smartphones.

One of the biggest culprits for screen burn-in on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, as well as last year’s models, is the persistent navigation bar …

Apple: OLED tech is to blame for the iPhone X display looking blueish when tilted

If you got the iPhone X delivered over the last few days, or held it in your hands in an Apple Store, you might have noticed that its display is not immune to a cold color shift when tilted, both at the top-down, or the side axis, as all OLED displays do to different extents. Granted, the shift is not as pronounced as some AMOLEDs of yesteryear we’ve seen, but still the white becomes increasingly blueish with an increased angle.

Well, that’s apparently the inevitable side effect of having an OLED display, as Apple warns in its support section titled “About the Super Retina display …

Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL software update fixes voice call clicking, adds saturated display mode

A new software update for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is out now, and aside from bringing a fix for the Wi-Fi-related Krack vulnerability, it’s also aiming to mend the devices’ audio and display problems.

As a refresher, numerous reports about clicking and cracking in the earpiece during voice calls and OLED display burn-in have marred the launch of Google’s latest flagships. Oh, and let’s not forget that some devices are shipping sans an operating system out of the box.

In particular, a new toggle in the display settings menu allows users to choose …

iPhone X OLED display burn-in: what's the danger and how to avoid it

Screen burn-in – even if you’re not familiar with this age-old display issue, it clearly sounds like something you don’t want your smartphone to suffer by. It is a problem that has been getting a lot of attention recently due to it affecting the Google Pixel 2 XL according to multiple reports, but it has the potential to manifest itself on just about any phone with an OLED display. This includes the iPhone X. Yes, even Apple’s 1000$ marvel is not immune to screen burn-in, as its maker openly confirms. But what is screen burn-in exactly, and should iPhone X owners be worried …

Asus announces its first smartphone with 18:9 display, the Pegasus 4S

Since everyone has decided that an 18:9 display is innovative enough to drive the sales of a high-end smartphone, Asus didn’t want to sort of “live in the past.” The Taiwanese company has decided to jump in the 18:9 display bandwagon and announced the upcoming availability of its first smartphone to feature such a screen – the Pegasus 4S.

Despite having a 5.7-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio, the smartphone isn’t really a flagship. For starters, the screen features HD+ (720 x 1440 pixels) resolution. On the bright side, Asus Pegasus 4S has very thin bezels and packs a massive 4,030 mAh …

The Razer Phone has an awesome 120Hz display, and here's how it works

Razer made headlines this week with the announcement of a new product (whose list of design features somehow lacks an array of rainbow-colored LED lights). The Razer Phone, as it is called, is essentially a phone made with high performance in mind – one built around top-notch hardware specs a passionate mobile gamer would demand. One component in particular – that 5.7-inch “UltraMotion” display – makes Razer’s first phone unique and even more worthy of attention than it already is.
