Top 10 iPhone 8 features review: predictions by Ming-Chi Kuo

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone and we expect Apple to bring a revolutionary redesign to the series with a full-screen device with all-out features: we don’t know the official name yet, but let’s refer to it as the Apple iPhone 8.
Some three months before the traditional Apple Special Event in September, where the company unveils its new iPhones, one of the most accurate Apple analysts has spoken with a list of 10 predictions for Apple’s plans for the second half of the year and the iPhone 8 in particular.

Motorola Moto E4 Plus Review

Introduction
In the world of smartphones, the true rock stars are often the top-tier heavy-hitters — your Samsung Galaxy S-es, your iPhones and Premium Xperias. These are devices that are filled to the brim with the latest and greatest in commercially available hardware and carry a justifiably high price tag for that. But there are also a few that become popular for going in the opposite direction — handsets that make the most out of the low-end hardware they’re built around and provide the budget conscious with a surprisingly solid user experience.

Motorola’s Moto G series is loved for …

Apple iPad Pro 10.5 Review

Introduction
More than most tech companies out there, Apple is a manufacturer that really gets set in its ways: no doubt after a long period of careful consideration, Apple tends to decide, “this is how we’re going to do things,” and keeps on doing that same thing, over and over, for years and years.

That’s especially true when it comes to the form factor of its mobile iOS devices, and something as simple as trying out a new screen size can feel like the biggest ask in the world when we’re talking about Apple. And certainly when we’re looking at Apple’s tablets, there’s ample evidence …

OnePlus 5 Review

Introduction
The new OnePlus 5 is an evolution of a successful formula: it adds a dual camera with Portrait mode and the fastest Android chip around…

The OnePlus 5 is the newest phone by OnePlus, a company that in just three years has fought its way to become one of the recognizable names among flagship makers. It did so by word of mouth and a large group of dedicated fans, standing by its ‘never settle’ motto. Oh yes, and by making flagship-grade phones with top specs at affordable prices.

The OnePlus 5, however, is its most expensive phone, and it’s got an iPhone inspired look …

LG G6 Quick Cover flip case review

Gravity – it is a funny thing, isn’t it? While it’s great at making life possible and keeping the universe together, it is also known for its ability to turn smartphone screens into sea salt. Thankfully, there’s a protective case for pretty much every smartphone in existence, and today we’re taking a look at the official Quick Cover case for the LG G6.

In a nutshell, the LG G6 Quick Cover case is designed to protect the display and the rear glass panel of the phone, as well as its corners, from dirt and scratches. The accessory’s front and back pieces are made …

Huawei P10 Plus Review

Introduction
Scandal’s a funny thing for smartphones. Sometimes a phone bounces right off a controversy without batting an eye – just look at how all the antennagates and bendgates failed to derail iPhone sales. Other times the impact is much more substantial, and it didn’t take very long last year for us to go right from the first reports of Galaxy Note 7 battery issues to the phone being recalled en masse and ultimately scrapped.

Huawei launched its spring flagships back at Mobile World Congress in February, introducing the duo of the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus. Initially, we put the smaller …

Nokia 3310 Review

Introduction
The famed Nokia 3310 is back, and the hype around it is real. While some are eager to get their hands on this feature phone, others are skeptical that HMD will deliver on its promises of a better 3310.

We here at PhoneArena don’t have the habit of reviewing feature phones, especially in such a low price range (between $60 and $70 in Europe), but for the successor of one of the most iconic devices in history, we had to make an exception. So, let’s get straight into it.

Monument Valley 2 review: a perfect visual experience, less so a game

The original Monument Valley game launched in the middle of 2014, nearly three years ago, and since then it has been a benchmark for excellence in graphics and atmospheric story-telling. In our review, we called Monument Valley “impossibly beautiful”. Yet as popular as it was, it was by no means perfect: the original game was way too short, ending in just an hour and a half or less, and it never felt like a ‘game’ per se, lacking nearly completely the competitive aspect of gaming, but instead feeling more like a walk in a beautiful virtual garden.

Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 Review

Introduction
The rugged smartphone is, by all accounts, a form factor of interest to a tiny consumer niche, and as such isn’t a popular choice with manufacturers. Among the big players, Samsung has been the most supportive of the idea, with the best-known example being the “Active” spins on its mainline flagships.

But one might consider its Xcover line, in this case represented by the latest Xcover 4, to be in an even tighter niche: where the Active series offers top-of-the-line specs if a sturdier body, the Xcover family is firmly and unashamedly planted into the low end. Thus, when …
