Inspired by Star Wars, Anker has announced that their Nebula Capsule II Star Wars R2-D2 Limited Edition Smart Mini Projector is now available for purchase. With only 1000 units available for sale, the Capsule II Star Wars projector may share similar specs to Nebula’s stock model, but there are two distinct differences. First, it will have a limited edition design resembling R2D2 — one of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars saga. And second, the start-up sound for this Capsule II will sound like R2-D2 as well.
It’s easy to get enamored by all of the flagship phones being released by phone makers, but what if you don’t necessarily need (or want) something with 5G, the fastest processor, or a $1000 price tag but still want a great camera? You have options! And one of them is the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 4G. This phone packs many features in its thin and light body, and it sells for around $300 — not that you’d ever be able to tell, just looking at it.
TCL might not be one of the first brands you think of when considering a new mobile phone, but they should be. TCL combines top-notch screens with impressive cameras and powerful processors that punch far above their price class. They’re at it again with the new TCL 20 Series phones!
What’s holding you back from hardcore gaming on your phone? Speed? Battery life? Not wanting your phone to double as a space heater? Good news! No matter your issue, Lenovo addresses it with the speedy, dual-battery, twin turbo-fan cooled Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2!
OPPO has been making phones since 2008, yet the OPPO Find X3 Pro is the first OPPO phone that I’ve ever tried, much less reviewed. Seeing as the Find X series is OPPO’s flagship line, and the Find X3 Pro is their top model, I can’t think of a better phone to introduce me to this company, which as of January this year, has overtaken Huawei as the number one selling smartphone brand in China. I have been using the Find X3 Pro as my primary phone for the past few weeks, and I have found much to like.

OPPO may not be widely known in the United States yet, but today’s announcement of “their most beautiful phone to date,” the futuristic OPPO Find X3 Pro, may change all of that. With a huge emphasis on the Find X3 Pro’s full-path 10-bit Colour Management System and True Billion Colour Display and the smartphone’s two Billion Colour flagship cameras, this sleek 5G flagship was made to impress.
OnePlus has just announced a three-year partnership with the esteemed camera manufacturer, Hasselblad, to “co-develop the next generation of smartphone camera systems for future OnePlus flagship devices.” Most excitingly, we can expect to see the first OnePlus x Hasselblad camera system, called ‘Hasselblad Camera for Mobile,’ in the upcoming OnePlus 9 Series!
The Google Pixel 5 was released last October as the follow-up to the Pixel 4. Rather than offering an XL version as Google had done with previous Pixel flagship models, the Pixel 5 was more of a “take it or leave it” proposition. It came in one size, a choice of two colors, and only one user memory option. There are some upgrades and some compromises, but overall it’s solid. Even so, I can admit that I wasn’t as enthused with it from the start as I had been with the Pixel 3 XL and the Pixel 4 XL.
MediaTek has just introduced it’s latest 5G smartphone chipsets, the Dimensity 1200 and Dimensity 1100. These chipsets will give device manufacturers even more options to choose from as they design smartphone models that feature top of the line cameras, graphics, connectivity enhancements, and more.
Qualcomm has just revealed its follow-up to its flagship Snapdragon 865 Plus with the Snapdragon 870 5G Mobile Platform. Why should you care? Well, let me tell you …
For a few years now, Apple and Samsung have battled for leadership in the global smartphone market share. This is particularly obvious in regions like the US, where both brands dominate. But did you know that Chinese manufacturer Huawei is consistently in the top three as well? In fact, it was #1 in Q2 2020 — yes, the same Huawei that the US government put on an entity list in 2019, barring it from doing business with US companies like Google.
Samsung held its latest Unpacked event this morning, signaling the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra. The latest Galaxy S21 phones have 5G, updated designs, hardware, and software, but the cameras are the star of the show.
Kyocera has a solution for the men and women who work in challenging environments with its Duraforce Ultra 5G Rugged Smartphone. This phone will be the first 5G rugged smartphone on the Verizon network.
OnePlus released the Nord in Europe some time ago with the promise that it would eventually arrive on our US shores. They later released the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and Nord N100 in Europe with promises to eventually bring them to the US. I’ve been testing the European OnePlus Nord N10 5G, and I am quite impressed. It is an excellent phone in its own right, and it represents OnePlus returning to its roots and the approach that first put it on our radar.
We all know Qualcomm makes zippy processors. No one’s doubting that Qualcomm is a big part of why we all have more power in our pockets than Neil Armstrong had when he landed on the moon. But it’s hard if you’re not a computer expert to know exactly what that means. Thankfully, Qualcomm put together a helpful video on their Snapdragon 888 to show us!
If someone had told me that after 2005 I’d be enamored by a flip-phone, I likely would have laughed at them; yet here we are. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip first came out in February, and the 5G version came out just a few months ago. While I think a lot of us were taken aback by the Z Fold 5G’s $1450 price tag and worries about how its folding screen would actually hold up over time, the Z Flip has been out long enough that even if the price understandably gives you pause, you might still be interested in…
Yesterday, we got a teaser regarding the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G Mobile Platform, and during the second and final day of the Snapdragon Tech Summit, we got the full details. Read on to learn more about the processor that will be powering 2021’s Android flagship phones.
Today kicked off the annual Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit, held virtually this year instead of in Maui, of course. As is usual at this event, their latest chipset was announced; we will now have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G mobile platform to look forward to in next year’s high-end Android devices.
I’ve been testing the OnePlus 8T for well over a month, and although it showed up at a time when I had four other different phones on my desk to review, it soon won me over and became my daily driver. Yes, there are a few caveats, but for someone like me who wants a brilliant, large display with a high refresh rate, fantastic battery life, an even better than expected camera, and almost all of the bells and whistles, it is a great choice.
