Your iPhone X has a dark interface mode that might save you some battery, here's how to turn it on

The iPhone X is Apple’s first smartphone with an OLED display on board and just as any other OLED smartphone out there, it has the same scope of strengths and weaknesses: excellent contrast, vivid colors, but color inaccuracies when viewed at an angle and susceptibility to burn-in. And just as any other OLED display out there, the iPhone X is theoretically going to use less power when displaying dark images or content.
Now, if only the iPhone X had a dark theme to make use of that OLED display characteristic… Fortunately, it sort of has …

Don't like the iPhone X notch? Here's 15 wallpapers that make it disappear!

The iPhone X’s “notch” has got to be one of the most divisive design choices made by Apple in recent years. The classic iPhone silhouette is one of the most recognizable in tech – heck, even in modern culture in general. A large rectangle with rounded corners and a smaller rectangle within it, positioned atop an even smaller circle. Three simple shapes that, when arranged like that, are universally recognized as an iPhone. But then the iPhone X comes along to erase all bezels and remove the home button, and how does Apple strive to make its silhouette iconic in a new way? …

TwitterFacebook

Of all the places where climate change affects, it’s the small island nations of the Pacific Ocean that are being hit the hardest.

It’s a story that’s being presented by Fijians in a VR documentary called Our Home, Our People, which has been put together by the World Bank.

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.
