Beautiful Xiaomi Mi 6 Ceramic Edition goes on first sale today

The Xiaomi Mi 6 Ceramic Edition is the top-dog version of the popular smartphone for those who desire the Chinese company’s technological and design best. Tricked out with a ceramic back, 18k gold camera rims, and a muscular spec sheet, the phone is going on its first sale in China May 23 at 10 AM local time. It took a while, due to material and chipset shortages.

We imagine the available stock will be depleted extremely quickly and many would-be buyers will have to wait for the second, or even third round, depending on Xiaomi’s market strategy. The …

Vertu launches tacky, expensive, helicopter-delivered Cobra Limited Edition phone

Warning – here be snakes! Opulent, red, ruby snakes. If it weren’t for the impeccable craftsmanship that went into creating the cobra mosaic out of 439 rubies and 2 emeralds (for the eyes), the new Vertu Signature Cobra Limited Edition would have looked about as tasteful as any other phone by the notorious luxury brand – that is, not much.

Vertu phones are “look at how rich I am” phones, not pieces of near-perfection like the Galaxies and iPhones we enjoy today. Still, ruby snakes on a phone is badass any time of the year and we’d gladly have one of these just for …

How tough is the sapphire edition HTC U Ultra? See it scratched and tortured in this video, then compared to other products

Earlier this year, HTC launched an oddball of a premium phablet — the HTC U Ultra, with a 5.7-inch main display and an extra ticker screen on top (a la LG V20), super-shiny finishes, and a missing 3.5 mm headphone jack (despite the device being quite large). To top it off, the company also announced that there will be a special edition of the phablet, which would rock a sapphire glass screen — allegedly the most unscratchable material for a screen that you can make.

Now, as we know, sapphire glass panels are super-hard to make — a couple of years ago, Apple hired …

Galaxy S8 battery life test: Snapdragon vs Exynos edition, a familiar tale

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has the same battery capacity as its predecessor the S7, but lasted longer when we ran it through our standardized battery benchmark. Since both phones come with the power-hungry high-res displays, we can attribute the better endurance mostly to the more frugal Snapdragon or Exynos chipsets of the S8. After all, they are made with the newest 10nm production node, compared to their 14nm siblings in the S7.

While the S8 certainly scores better in that department than the S7, they do share one battery life characteristic – the global version of the S8 with …
