The HTC U12+, the Taiwan-based company’s latest attempt at grabbing is own chunk of the Android market, has just been unveiled with a plethora of neat features on deck. At first sight, the phone will likely captivate you with two of its noteworthy color options, the Translucent Blue and Flamed Red ones which are a breath of fresh air and spice things up, but appearance alone is hardly the single strength of the handset.
With lots of fanfare, OnePlus today unveiled the OnePlus 6, its 5th-gen flagship device that wants continues to challenge the established order and offer top-of-the-line specs at a rather stomachable price tag.
It’s quite logical to wonder how …
The 2018 iPhone X Plus will reportedly match the dimensions of the iPhone 8 Plus. It’s been rumored for some time now that Apple will be introducing three new iPhone models in September, among which will be a plus-sized iPhone X. Now, according to a new report, it seems the new smartphone will be largely similar in size to last year’s iPhone 8 Plus.
The latest update to the Android version of the eBay app adds something very interesting. A new feature helps sellers find the right size box to ship the item that they have sold on the online auction site. After an item is purchased, the seller can overlay different size boxes over an image of the sold product to help him/her decide which one to use. A partial screen shot used by eBay to promote the feature reveals that USPS (that’s the U.S. Postal Service) rates are provided to the seller as well.
The auction site says that the feature will work on compatible devices only, but has not …
Sony has just announced the latest devices to join its portfolio, the Xperia XZ2 and the XZ2 Compact, two handsets whose purpose is to take the the Japan-based manufacturer up-to-speed with the current trends on the smartphone market. With everyone plotting the total demise of old-school bezels and looking forward to providing users with more display real estate, Sony felt the pressure and finally caved in – the XZ2 looks way more contemporary than any other Xperia before it.
Earlier today, we told you a few interesting things about the HQ live trivia game show that is now drawing 1 million contestants and more twice each weekday, and once a day on Saturday and Sunday. We told you that subscribers to the app cannot cash out unless they have $20 or more in winnings sitting in their account.

The average take for one show is $10-$20 for each winner.
So, Sony has just revealed its two new midrangers. And, just as usual, the manufacturer has evolved its design language, but ever so slightly. The XA2 duo looks modern… yet classic. Of course, we are talking about the rectangular look and the meaty top and bottom bezels. But, at the very least, the XA line has always been about super-thin side bezels and that doesn’t change with the XA2 and XA2 Ultra.
So, they are a 5.2-inch phone and a 6-inch phablet, respectively. And those are not 18:9, super-narrow displays, no… They are good ol’, classic 16:9 monsters. So, how do the new Sony midrangers …
The official reveal of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ is still a ways off, with conflicting reports as to whether the two flagships will be showcased at CES next year or further down the line. But even if our first real glimpse of Samsung’s 2018 S-series lineup is still a good couple of months away, we already have a lot of interesting tidbits about the upcoming phones, including some renders and even dimensions that are based off of leaked factory CAD drawings.
Despite the fact that phablets have become the standard in the smartphone industry these days, some people don’t like their smartphones to be very large. Luckily, there are still plenty of average-sized smartphones out there, although when it comes to flagships the offer is kind of limited.
Even though there are a plethora of average-sized handsets available on the market, we can’t say the same thing about small smartphones. And when we say small, we mean credit card-sized small.
A Japanese company unveiled its rather niche product (hence the name) called …
