Huawei P20 & P20 Pro Review


Chinese company Huawei has been on a streak in the past few years by selling millions of phones and quickly growing to become the world’s third-largest phone maker, behind Apple and Samsung.

The company planned a loud US debut in early 2018 and was on the verge of launching its flagship phones on AT&T and Verizon Wireless, but lawmakers intervened and the deal fell apart in the last minute. The reason? US politicians say Huawei is “effectively an arm of the Chinese government” and the heads of the FBI, CIA and NSA have recommended people not to use Huawei phones. Huawei, on the other …

Huawei P20 Pro vs Pixel 2 XL vs Galaxy S9+ vs iPhone X: low-light camera shoot-out

Being what my colleagues would describe as a “photography aficionado” (a.k.a annoying camera geek), and someone who loved the 20MP monochrome cameras on the Huawei P9 and the P10, I was excited to learn that the Huawei P20 Pro will feature three cameras and a massive (for today’s smartphone standards) 1/1.7-inch sensor for better low-light performance. Not to mention the f/1.8 aperture, which albeit not the lowest f-stop number we’ve seen on a smartphone, is actually capable of capturing quite a bit more light than the competition, thanks to the increased surface area of the sensor.

So, …

Samsung J2 Pro is the smartphone for those who don't want internet connectivity

When you think about all of the things you can do with your smartphone, naturally you grasp the importance of internet connectivity. Without this connection, you wouldn’t be able to use the browser on your phone, or open up most apps. But believe it or not, there are some consumers (a rather small subset) who want a smartphone, but without the ability to be connected. This leaves the device offering a limited number of capabilities, especially for a phone using the word “Pro” in its name.

The Samsung J2 Pro comes with a 5-inch display carrying a 540 x 960 resolution (qHD, not to be confused …

BlackBerry Ghost and Ghost Pro to launch this quarter?

In February and March, we showed you a pair of renders for a couple of new handsets that were reportedly being prepped by BlackBerry licensee Optiemus. If the renders are legit, both the BlackBerry Ghost and the BlackBerry Ghost Pro will be two of the sexiest BlackBerry phones ever produced. The two devices each feature an edge-to-edge screen and an aspect ratio of 18:9. Neither render shows off a fingerprint scanner, which means that the biometric reader is on the back of the phone, or (less likely) embedded under the display.

While Optiemus never confirmed the existence of the Ghost and …
