Asus Zenfone 4 and Zenfone 4 Pro Review

Some phones push the boundaries of what mobile technology is capable of. They represent the latest advancements in hardware and software reflected in a product that commands top dollar, but feel as if they’ve been taken out of a James Bond movie. Other phones – phones like the Asus ZenFone 4 and ZenFone 4 Pro – stick to the good old value-for-money approach. While not particularly groundbreaking, both handsets are well spec’d and reasonably priced – at $400 and $600 respectively – topping it off with dual cameras at the back and the promise of “an unparalleled mobile photography …

OnePlus 5T Review

2017 can be argued as the year of the trends: from stretched-out 18:9 displays to dual-camera implementations to facial recognition security, all adopted by many of the flagships released this year. And you know what else they adopted? This crazy idea of ultra-premium pricing around the neighborhood of $1,000.

However, there’s a new phone that adopts all of these newfound qualities, and then some, but without the $1,000 price tag. Enter the OnePlus 5T: the latest high-end smartphone from the Chinese company. At first glance, it could be perceived as a minuscule update, coming only a …

ZTE Axon M Review

If you’ve been around PhoneArena for long enough, you may have seen those folding smartphone concepts – most notably the one from Samsung, where a single screen folds down the middle, transforming the device from a mini tablet to a classic smartphone and vice versa. The ZTE Axon M is built around that same idea, but realizes it through a much more straightforward approach. Basically, it’s a foldable dual-screen Android smartphone with two 5.2-inch displays held together by a hinge.

It must be pointed out that the ZTE Axon M is neither a concept, nor a prototype. In fact, you can get …

That’s dirt cheap when it comes to true wireless headphone solutions, but when it’s priced that low, it makes anyone wondere if there any major drawbacks with them.

Soul ST-XS truly wireless earphones review

Growing competition in the truly wireless headphones segment is causing prices to fall, evident in some of the most recent offerings released this year.

Asus Zenfone V Review

As Asus continues to roll out installments in its Zenfone 4 lineup, the company has taken a moment to release Verizon’s very own, exclusive Zenfone: the Zenfone V. The V, of course, means “Verizon” and not the numeral “five,” as this is certainly neither part of the Zenfone 4 series, nor is it a jump to Zenfone 5. Instead, we have a sleek-looking phone constructed of aluminum and glass, packing 2016-level flagship components. These include a Snapdragon 820 with 4 gigabytes of RAM, a 1080p AMOLED display, and a 23-megapixel camera. Selling for $384, Asus looks to be taking a crack at the “affordable …
