Huawei teases the unique 3x zoom of P20, and studio-level portraits (videos)

In case you haven’t heard, the world’s second-largest Android maker will be second in line to announce its spring flagships, after Samsung is done and dusted with the Galaxy S9 and S9+ unveiling. Scheduled for March 27, the “mooore” event in Paris is expected to reveal the P20/Pro/Lite trio, all with notch-y screens, big batteries, and great cameras for their respective class.

How great? Well, how about triple-camera on the more expensive P20 and Pro models – a regular shooter, a monochromatic one (in a Huawei traditions), and a new telephoto lens – the best of all worlds. Well, …

HTC U12's design language to include a unique matte white finish variant

HTC fans may have already had their fair share of leaks about the upcoming flagship of the Taiwanese company, but there are still many things to learn about the HTC U12.

Besides the full specs list that we reported about not long ago, there’s a matter of design. Apparently, HTC U12 will retain the company’s Liquid Surface design language, but with a twist.

A trusted source with knowledge about HTC’s plans claims the handset maker plans to introduce a new matte white finish for the U12, which will be quite unique for a smartphone that’s completely coated in glass.

Yes, the U12 …

When it comes to smartphone protection, there are plenty of cases out there to pick from. What 90% of them have in common is that you have to sacrifice your phone’s slim profile in order to get the benefits of protecting it from drops and bumps.

But there are a lot of people out there that don’t want to ruin their phone’s profile. Especially …

How to get Galaxy Note 8's unique features on your Android phone

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is one of the best smartphones released in 2017. Its futuristic design and powerful hardware are certainly impressive, but they aren’t exactly unique in the heavily-saturated mobile space. 

The things that make this towering handset truly stand out are a collection of intriguing pre-loaded features, apps, and, of course, the creativity-inducing S Pen stylus. 
Some of these functionalities are going to remain exclusive to Samsung’s latest and greatest. However, there’s a good amount of apps …

The best iMessage sticker packs can be unique and wonderful

A crack here, a split there, and a whole fracture appears in Steve Jobs’ closed iOS ecosystem concept. CEO Tim Cook opened the floodgates with the invitation for third-party keyboard makers to port their creations over to iOS 8, but with iOS 10 came a veritable gasp-inducing storm of proprietary APIs, like those of Siri or iMessage, being partially opened to developers to work their magic into the innermost sanctity of the iOS code.

This is, of course, a good thing, at least in general principle, as there has never been such an abundance of choice for iPhone users, …

4 things that make the Nokia 8 unique

Announced by HMD Global earlier this month, the Nokia 8 is a high-end Android phone that’ll try to take on some of this year’s flagships once it hits shelves come September. Its weapons? The Nokia brand, excellent build quality, and a very attractive list of specs – comparable to what you’re getting from other expensive flagship handsets of 2017.

Now, the Nokia 8 might not look too different from the mid-range Nokia 6 or Nokia 5 (both already available to buy), but the new aluminum-made smartphone is unique in several ways. Join us below to discover them, will …

The unique thrill of vintage shopping on Instagram


In an effort to buy less, buy thoughtfully, and — let’s be honest — look cool, I have turned more frequently toward secondhand and vintage shopping. So far, it’s great. Each piece I buy is more likely to be well-cut, breathable, and of high quality. Basically, I wear a lot more linen now. Score!

My personal epiphany is nothing new. People have been digging through bins and combing through racks (and searching eBay and Etsy for #finds) long before I decided to stop shopping at H&M. What’s a little newer is where people are searching for vintage pieces — on Instagram.

Uptime for iOS offers a fun and unique way to watch YouTube videos with friends

Google is a company that’s become famous and infamous at the same time for throwing tons of services and platforms at the wall in an effort to see what sticks and what doesn’t. The search-engine giant launched something called Area 120 back in 2016, and the main purpose of the project was to provide a space for Google employees to create and launch their own side companies. Uptime is a new video sharing app that’s the latest brainchild of Area 120, and it aims to create a new way to watch and share YouTube videos.

Uptime is essentially its own little social network that’s centered …

Unique features of the LG G6 that set it apart from the current competition

LG finally lifted the veil on the G6 at MWC earlier today, and it sure was a sight to behold! The LG G6 has an amazingly compact footprint with almost bezel-less design, as a spacious 5.7-inch display occupies its front in a strikingly efficient manner. It boggles the mind how a device with almost the same dimensions as the 5.3-inch LG G5 can have such a big screen and remain adequately usable with one hand at the same time. But there’s more to the G6 than skin-deep beauty – the entire phone has been cleverly devised to utilize the new screen aspect ratio to its fullest, …

BlackBerry KEYone (Mercury): New and unique features

The BlackBerry KEYone, best known until now under the codename “Mercury”, is here and it is one of the most peculiar Android devices bearing the name of a big phone maker you’ll see in 2017. The KEYone bets heavily on classic BlackBerry staples, such as the iconic QWERTY keyboard and the enhanced security features, while trying to somehow fit in with the smartphone standards of today. It’s a difficult task, no doubt about that, but make no mistake about it – although the BlackBerry KEYone is “current” in many aspects, it is not a smartphone with mass-market appeal …
