Usually the first question that many people ask when they come across someone wielding the Apple iPhone X is “How is Face ID working for you?” Despite the edge-to-edge screen and the very thin bezels, it seems that Face ID might be the most interesting feature of the tenth anniversary model. Well, if you ask that question to a woman in China, identified in a published report only by her surname “Yan,” the question about Face ID would probably elicit a negative response.
Yan purchased the iPhone X and setup the facial recognition system only to find that one particular co-worker was able …
You’ve never heard of 2016’s I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House. But you should have.
The lapse in coverage on it may come from Netflix’s inability to promote its Originals, with niche art house films like this one getting buried beneath the never-ending barrage of new content. Or maybe it’s because this ghost story is often categorized as a horror movie, but better suited to suspense lovers. Perhaps it’s the sentence-long title which, while intriguing, is not very search friendly.
For whatever reason, you’ve missed out on one of Netflix’s most daring experiments, and one of the most evocative atmospheric horror films exploring the female psyche since Polanksi’s Repulsion. Read more…
HTC was the manufacturer of the original Pixel and Pixel XL. When rumors first broke about a pair of sequels, it was assumed that HTC would once again be behind both phones. In fact, the original Pixel 2 XL sported a code name of “Muskie.” In June, this model was dropped by Google, and replaced by a larger screened unit code named “Taimen.” There is some indication that HTC was behind the “Muskie.” The “Taimen” was produced by LG, and it would seem that the latter made a late (albeit successful) bid to replace HTC as manufacturer of the Pixel 2 XL.
There are some interesting differences …
The original Galaxy J7 is the latest Samsung smartphone to receive the long-awaited Android Nougat update at T-Mobile. The US carrier has already published the changelog of the update, but there isn’t anything interesting mentioned there.
Although T-Mobile claims the Galaxy J7 (SM-J700T) is getting Android 7.0 Nougat update, the smartphone is being upgraded directly to Android 7.1.1. A security patch is included in the update as well, but we can’t say for sure whether it’s the one released by Google in September or October.
We can definitely say that you …
Released in the US earlier this month, the LG V30
is one of this year’s top extra-large Android smartphones, up there with the
likes of Samsung Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy Note 8, or the Google Pixel 2 XL. One of the
main features of the LG V30 is its dual rear camera – thanks to a Cine Video
mode and high-quality components, this camera is quite good at
To illustrate what can be done with a V30, LG has partnered with
six emerging filmmakers who used the smartphone to create short films. All
the films were shot exclusively on the LG V30, being screened during …
When the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL models rolled out last year, Google promised owners of the two devices unlimited free storage of original quality photos and videos in Google Photo. No expiration date was ever mentioned. So when the word came from Mountain View that Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL owners will get the same treatment of their photos and videos, but only through the end of 2020, beads of sweat started to drip off owners of the first-gen models. Would their unlimited storage of original quality photos and videos also expire after three more years?
This year marks a full decade since Apple unveiled its gamechanger to the mobile world — the original iPhone. It was the handset that kind of shook things up when it comes to what can and what can’t be done on a smartphone, which was an eye-opening experience for both consumers and manufacturers. Some didn’t believe that the no-keyboard thing would fly, others mocked it as an oversized iPod. Ultimately, the joke was on them.
To celebrate the anniversary, Apple is said to release a very, very special iPhone 8 model in less than a month. But we’re not here to talk about Apple. Nope, we are …
