Which OnePlus 6 version should I buy? Mirror Black vs Midnight Black vs Silk White comparison

With lots of fanfare, OnePlus unveiled the OnePlus 6 the other day, 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.

Joining the fray with its efficient 19:9 display aspect ratio, bezel-busting design, and thin frame, the device looks every bit modern, just like the majority of contemporary mid-range and flagship phones that aim to maximize the precious screen real estate, even at the stake of getting a controversial display notch up front.

That’s probably enough …

White variant of the OnePlus 6 showcased entirely in new image

Yet another alleged image of the OnePlus 6 reveals its design in full. The Chinese OEM recently confirmed that its next flagship would see a May 16 launch in London, marking the earliest device announcement by the company since the original OnePlus One. And now, after OnePlus released various teasers for the OnePlus 6, a new image allegedly reveals the company’s next device in its entirety.

As can be seen, the device falls in line with previous rumors, with the front panel sporting a tall, 6.3-inch display complete with a notch up top and a small chin down below. Also, relatively small …

Sprint rushing to a T-Mobile merger may have to do with a Democratic White House 2020

The merger of T-Mobile and Sprint fell apart just a few short months ago, but rumors are swirling that they are at it again, this time determined to iron out the controlling stake differences, and really push for this thing to work. Why again and why now, you ask? Well, it turns out that debt-laden parent company of debt-laden Sprint sees only a limited window of opportunity to do it before the next, possibly Democratic White House kicks in when 2020 Presidential elections come.

A merger effort was once blocked by President Obama’s White House on the premise of limiting competition, …

How Cambridge Analytica used Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and others to put Trump in the White House

It sounds so creepy and far-fetched, almost like the plot to some B-list movie thriller. A company called Cambridge Analytica was able to help deliver the presidency to Donald Trump by getting inside the heads of the real estate developer’s supporters and non-supporters using social media sites like Twitter, YouTube and Facebook. Data that was supposed to be used for research only was sold to Cambridge Analytica, which in turn sold the Trump campaign on the power behind its use.

To the credit of the team running the Trump campaign, they understood that mining the Facebook profiles of 50 …

Android P lifts the Flux White visuals, all the while it locks rootless theming

Android has been playing catch-up with features that phone maker overlays already have for a while now, but at least it was visually different, with the flat, colorful Material Design guidelines that appealed to many. Up until today, that is, when Google outed the Android P Developer Preview, and said it will block access to custom overlays. Read: awesome rootless Substratum theming will no longer be possible with P. Bummer.

The irony? The new Android P visuals, heavily leaning to the white and OLED unfriendly variety, have been criticized for being a mixture of …

Limited edition fluorite white Casio WSD-F20-WE with Android Wear 2.0 announced

Casio is back with yet another Android Wear smartwatch, the WSD-F20-WE. This time, however, the Japanese company is bringing a limited edition wearable device to market.

White House government shutdown away message is a political attack on Democrats


Donald Trump’s White House sunk to a new level of petty on Saturday, as the United States government shutdown.

Callers dialing into the publicly available White House comments line — at 202.456.1111 — are greeted with a recorded away message. An unrecognizable female voice politely explains that the government is shut down because Democrats are holding it “hostage.”

Listen for yourself. This is a recording we captured ourselves when dialing the White House comment line shortly after 6:00 p.m. ET on Saturday. Read more…

OnePlus 5T Sandstone White: hands-on

The OnePlus 5T is one of the best phones you can buy, a $500 phone with flagship-grade performance and nice extras like ultra fast face unlock feature and Dash Charge, a fast-charging technology that works its magic even when you are using your phone.
The OnePlus 5T, however, is only available in one color: a very good-looking “Midnight Black” with a matte look to it, but… it’s just one color option. These days, OnePlus offered a limited edition version of the 5T in a fancy new “Sandstone White”, a whimsical combination of a white back, …
