Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ teaser is all about taking great selfies

Yesterday, we showed you three new video teasers from Samsung for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ that focused (no pun intended) on some of the upcoming flagships’ photographic features. We saw video shot in slo-mo, and recorded under less than optimal lighting conditions. Today, we find another new video teaser that is titled “The Camera Reimagined.” This would indicate that Samsung has rebuilt the cameras on its 2018 flagship phones from scratch.

The new video shows a number of different effects, many of which are already available to owners of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy …

6 great smartphones from 10 years ago (2018 edition)

2008 was an important year in the world of smartphones.

If you’re feeling nostalgic, or just curious about what smartphones were cool a decade ago, we’re inviting you to discover some of the greatest …

Audio Technica's new Bluetooth headphones look great for sports

Audio Technica has a brand new pair of sporty Bluetooth neck-bud headphones – the ATH-SPORT70BT model – and we got to spend some time with them at CES 2018, so here are our first impressions.

The Audio-Technica ATH-SPORT70BT headphones are super lightweight and the wire can be adjustable so nothing is flapping. This means that the actual experience of wearing them is very comfortable and fitting for an intense workout. On the flipside of things, they are pretty conservative in terms of looks and styling, so they might not be everyone’s cup of tea if you value …

No, not Portal 3 — Valve doesn’t count to three — but a mashup between the indie game Bridge Constructor and the Aperture Labs universe. Bridge Constructor Portal is available for PC, consoles, and mobile, and we were quick to install it on an iPhone and try it out. So, how is it?

The Portal Universe

New shot-on-iPhone short film Vortex shows you don't always need expensive cameras for great video

Shooting a cinematic video on just a phone is a bit of a cliche these days: we know that it’s possible and we know people do it more and more, but this latest one is worth sharing because it pushes the boundaries with shooting technique.
Vortex is a new, 1.5-minute short movie that is shot entirely on an iPhone with the help of some tools and with a lot of creativity, and it exemplifies novel camera movement that gives an exciting new perspective on New York City.
