If dual cameras were the hot trend for smartphones last year, bezel-less displays are the ones keeping handsets interesting this year. And although they were limited to flagships at the start of 2017, midrange phones have finally been incorporating the feature lately — the newest of which being the Vivo V7+.
Nintendo’s palm-sized throwback consoles are incredibly hard to come by right now, but thanks to some crafty digging — and lots of impatience — both are in our hands for a full unboxing video with gameplay footage.
As soon as you read the name, you’d automatically think the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S is one those sleek Android tablets you’ve seen in the news. That’s only half right, because this Galaxy is a full-fledged Windows 10 convertible through and through.
Another year, another iPhone release. This year, as has been the case the past two years, we’re getting two models: the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
This is it: the final entry in our supersized smartphone series. After covering large handsets that specialize in selfies, look like a premium flagship, and load up on the specs sheet, we’re now looking at a phone prioritizing an ultra size above all else. Indeed, the 6.8-inch ASUS ZenFone 3 Ultra will astound you with its absurd proportions and premium packaging.
When Xiaomi decided to go big with their next smartphone, they weren’t kidding. The Mi Max overshadows most handsets in terms of size, pushing 6.44 inches of display on a full-metal body. It’s by far the China-based manufacturer’s largest phone since starting out, and it has GadgetMatch’s full attention right now.
Last week, we spent a generous amount of time on the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro. It got our unboxing and hands-on treatment as seen above, plus an in-depth look into how well the phone works as a daily driver. With all the exposure we’ve given this phablet, why would we feature it again here? The answer is quite simple, and it involves more of its kind.
How big is too big, really? After seeing phablets as large as 6.8 inches in screen size, anything around 5.5 inches is beginning to feel normal. We’re now taking a look at the Xperia XA Ultra, which is Sony’s largest midranger this year, sitting in what we feel is a comfortable 6 inches.
As many of you know, we’re only a few short weeks away from seeing ASUS’ signature smartphone series hit the streets in many parts of the world.
As of this month, it’s reportedly already available in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. Next up are Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Philippines in August. A ZenFone 3 launch event is expected to take place in India sometime in September. Shipments could be headed to Europe, Japan, and the United States later in the year.
There’s something about the OnePlus 3’s packaging that makes unboxing it an experience.
From its elegant yet understated red-white color scheme and the layers upon layers of things to unpack, to everything in the box that is well thought-out, keeping in with the company’s tagline, “Never settle.”
Like them or not, 360-degree photos and videos — those that allow you to look up, down, left, and right — could be the future of social media, and Samsung is well-positioned to take advantage of this development following the release of the Gear 360 camera.
The Korean phone maker says it wants to make immersive experiences accessible to all, and sees the product as an important step forward in this respect.
It’s not always that you can take apart something and end up with a better product, but that’s exactly the calling card of LG’s latest flagship, the G5.
Yup, you’re looking at the Lego equivalent of a smartphone, or at least the closest thing we have to a truly modular device that can be upgraded as easily as swapping out its components. Obviously, that future hasn’t fully arrived yet, but it’s good to see the Korean manufacturer actively pursuing it.
We’re always excited to hear about sub-$200 smartphones.
After all, just because you can’t afford the shiniest new phone being talking about, it shouldn’t mean you can’t get a good smartphone to match your needs.
In this particular price range however it gets tougher to find a phone that you’ll enjoy using.
But there are gems like Asus’ Zenfone 2 Laser. The phone has been around for almost a year now and it appears the company intends on keeping it around for a while longer.
The new 9.7-inch iPad Pro is, in all fronts, the most impressive iPad ever built. It’s got a new A9X processor that Apple says is more powerful than most PCs, the camera of the iPhone 6S, which apart from offering better autofocus and low-light performance, can also shoot 4K video, and a new anti-reflective display with TrueTone technology that adapts color temperature based on its surroundings.
