The Xiaomi Mi A1 Special Edition features a vivid red color

Back in September, we told you all about the Xiaomi Mi A1. As an Android One handset (that’s what A1 stands for) this device features stock Android and will be among the first Android phones to receive updates from Google.

OnePlus celebrates 4 years: special giveaway and discounts posted

Ah, it has been a long road for OnePlus — sometimes a bumpy one, sure, but undeniably one that leads up. And right now, everything seems to be going well for the company. Its latest “flagship killer” is a fan-favorite, despite that it sells for much more than the original $299 that the OnePlus One launched with, its accessory shop is growing, and its becoming a recognizable brand, thanks to some subtle, but obviously effective guerilla marketing moves.

Technically, it will be in April of 2018 when the OnePlus One becomes 4 years old, but the company was, of course, …

Our Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL review just went up, and surprising almost no one, the devices can take some quite spectacular shots (animal lovers: check out the camera section for photos of two absolutely adorable kitties). And most of this has to do not with the camera sensors, but rather Google’s special HDR+ algorithm which can drastically improve upon the quality of images.

But it turns out that Google has a trick up its sleeve this year: yes, HDR+ is back and in top shape, but Google has decided to enhance it on the hardware side as well. That …

Leak: iPhone X to get special Dynamic wallpapers to highlight its new OLED display

The upcoming Apple iPhone X is the first-ever iPhone with an OLED (that’s organic light-emitting diode) display. The tech has been used by plenty of Android phone manufacturers before, most prominently by Samsung, who is a major player at driving the technology forward with its Super AMOLED brand. In fact, it’s Samsung that will be providing the OLED panels for Apple’s new flagship.
