OnePlus 5 rumor review: design, specs, price and release date

Many a geek have already branded OnePlus’ latest phones—the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T—the spiritual successors to the Nexus line of developer-friendly phones. That’s a notion OnePlus likely wants to keep around, which automatically puts a ton of stress on the company and requires it to keep it up with the gained momentum.
The OnePlus 5 is expected to become official sooner than later as numerous rumors and leaks are hinting at a May or early June announcement by OnePlus. True, the company doesn’t really have an established annual time window …


Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus full specs and prices leaked out

Two new Motorola smartphones are expected to be announced in the coming weeks, both belonging to the budget-friendly category, the Moto E4, and Moto E4 Plus.

Although this isn’t the first time we’re talking about the two entry-level smartphones, we now have much more details on their specs and prices.

Up until now, we knew the Moto E4 Plus comes with a massive 5,000 mAh battery inside, but other than that, details were scarce. Well, it looks like the smartphone will feature the same 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTGek MT6737M processor that the regular Moto E4 smartphone …

$130 ZTE Max XL launched on Boost Mobile, packing surprisingly generous specs in places

After releasing the $199 Blade Max 3, the Chinese brand is going to launch a new prepaid phone on Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile – the ZTE Max XL. Embargoed information leaked online, describing a $130 phone with some surprisingly solid hardware for the price.

HTC U rumor review: design, specs, features, and everything else we know so far

Most of you may have gathered as much, but the U Ultra wasn’t HTC’s real 2017 flagship. While we gave it a “good” 7.2 rating in our review, most people weren’t exactly happy with it, due to a few questionable decisions such as omitting the headphone jack, putting an inadequate battery inside, and pricing it way too high. And this isn’t just your everyday tech enthusiast complaining – these problems seem to have affected sales as well, judging from the drastic price cuts we’ve been seeing recently.
But nevermind that, let’s take a look into …

Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 specs leak touts Snapdragon 835 and 8GB RAM

The Xiaomi Mi MIX was one of last year’s great surprises, and its welcome reception demonstrated the tech world’s keen interest in (almost) edge-to-edge design. Naturally, there’s been quite a bit of speculation as to what the device’s successor may include, with a recent rumor suggesting the so-called Mi MIX 2 could offer an even more impressive screen-to-body ratio than the first iteration. Now, a rather premature GearBest listing suggests the next-gen model could arrive with up to 8 gigs of RAM. 

Of course, this information is not confirmed, …

Alleged Moto E4 specs leak ahead of official announcement

The unannounced Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus may have been recently spotted at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), but aside from one piece of information, nothing was revealed about the phones’ specs.

If you’ve read our previous report, then you already know the Moto E4 Plus is tipped to pack a massive 5,000 mAh battery inside. Today, we’ve learned that the regular Moto E4 model won’t be packing a similar battery.

Thanks to the listing of the phone at the Indonesian regulatory entity P3DN, we now know a bit more about the Moto E4. Unlike the Plus model, this one will be powered …

Latest rumored OnePlus 5 specs include 8GB of RAM

Because the number 4 in Chinese is considered bad luck (it looks like the Chinese word for death), OnePlus is expected to go from the OnePlus 3T to the OnePlus 5. According to a report out of China, the OnePlus 5 is going to continue the manufacturer’s use of high end specs. Just like the OnePlus 3 was one of the first handsets to sport 6GB of RAM, the newest speculation has the OnePlus 5 employing 8GB of Random Access Memory. To put that in perspective, that is twice the amount found in today’s flagship models.

The Snapdragon 835 chipset will power the new unit, which means that it will …

Honor 6C goes official in Europe with mid-range specs, metal body

Today was a special day for Honor, as the Chinese company introduced its Honor 8 Pro flagship killer in Europe. Along with the smartphone announcement, Honor debuted a beta program for customers in the United States.

But there’s one more thing that got revealed earlier today at Honor’s event, a second smartphone. The Honor 6C has been officially announced today alongside the high-end Honor 8 Pro. The smartphone is supposed to hit the shelves in Europe for €229.

Specs-wise, the Honor 6C is a rebranded Huawei Enjoy 6s, a smartphone that was launched in China …

Huawei Y5 2017 quietly unveiled: stylish curves, but unimpressive specs

Huawei is well-known for its affordable Android smartphones since forever. It’s one of the few companies that refined its portfolio of entry-level beyond anything we’ve seen until now. Naturally, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t other choices that make as good alternatives.

The latest addition to Huawei’s ever growing lineup of affordable smartphones is weirdly called Y5 2017. It wasn’t officially announced since it’s an entry-level device, but it’s now listed on Huawei’s website.

We do know much of the phone’s specs configuration, but no details about …

US-bound Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom won't have upgraded specs after all

Not long ago, Asus North America said that the ZenFone 3 Zoom would be released in the US sometime in the second quarter of the year, coming with “better specs” compared to the international version. Unfortunately, the company had to retract the latter part: the smartphone that’s bound to hit shelves across the US won’t really have upgraded specs, so it’s going to be identical to the ZenFone 3 Zoom that can be purchased in other markets.

The ZenFone 3 Zoom is still scheduled to arrive stateside this quarter (April – June), but Asus didn’t reveal an exact release date for it. While we do …
