Meet the OnePlus Open, the company’s very first foldable device.

Undeniably, it’s also the twin sister of OPPO’s latest foldable, the Find N3 — just exclusive to China.

But with the OnePlus Open being open (pun intended) to regions outside its hometown such as Europe and the US, will this become the next best foldable that you can buy?

In this video we’re doing a quick unboxing to give you a glimpse of the OnePlus Open.

ICYMI: Here’s also a replay of Michael Josh and Judie Stanford of Gear Diary in an Open Table Talk segment.

4 reasons to check out the Huawei Watch GT 4

When fashion meets fitness



Huawei introduces the Huawei Watch GT 4, unveiling a new look and feel to its smartwatch. It blends style and smart connectivity, but of course, there’s more to a smartwatch than its appearance.

Lo and behold, here are four reasons to check out Huawei’s new smartwatch.

1. Refined design

Huawei puts fashion at its core, turning a fine smartwatch like the Huawei Watch GT 4 into a smart timepiece. The 46mm variant prides itself with a distinctive geometric design, using an octagon watch body. It is inspired by the diamond cut and chiselled exterior found in performance cars, pushing a classic look that matches any strap you prefer.

There’s also the 41mm variant, embodying a pendant design. It achieves the perfect balance between sleekness and sophistication.

Both smartwatches feature a stunning AMOLED screen with ultra-thin bezels, giving more space to the data that matter.

2. Live a smart, connected life

What’s a smartwatch if it can’t stay connected, right? The Huawei Watch GT 4 pushes smart connectivity inside a fashionable timepiece.

It brings seamless integration between the smartwatch and the connected smartphone. Yes, it works beyond non-Huawei smartphones. As long as you’re using smartphones running Android 6.0 and iOS 9.0 or later, you can enjoy the wonders of this timepiece.

It also comes with improved app multitasking management, allowing users to continue getting updates from the background running app while accessing information from the watch face.

Luckily, it offers up to 14 days of battery life on the 46mm and 7 days on the 41mm. You don’t have to worry about charging your smartwatch every single day.

3. Better health monitoring

The Huawei Watch GT 4 uses HUAWEI TruSleep 3.0 sleep monitoring technology, which monitors sleep stages, real-time heart rate, sleep breathing, and assesses sleep quality.

Furthermore, it’s equipped with a newly upgraded TruSeen 5.5+ heart rate monitoring technology, leveraging the power of AI algorithms to provide accurate heart rate readings.

It also introduces Pulse Wave Arrythmia Analysis to help users better understand their heart health through a comprehensive cardiac health management.

There’s also a lung function assessment, respiratory check, and cycle tracking as part of its 24/7 health monitoring.

4. A companion for staying active

The Huawei Watch GT 4 promotes staying active and being fit.

It comes with 200+ free fitness courses with personalized scientific training plans. It intelligently adjusts based on real-time feedback to optimize progress.

Moreover, it has over 100 diverse sports modes, and introduces 19 new professional sports mode. It covers indoor and outdoor activities such as walking, running, cycling, swimming, and more.

Vibe Check: realme 10 Pro 5G Coca-Cola Edition

Refreshing special edition smartphone!



When realme announced its partnership with Coca-Cola® for a special edition smartphone, it was quite amusing but not surprising.

As a brand, realme has always showcased youthful energy, promoting fun and spontaneity through its campaigns and experiences. Coca-Cola®shares the same virtue of fun — celebrating friendship and happiness through a carbonated drink.

When we got our hands on the realme 10 Pro 5G Coca-Cola® edition, we were ecstatic at the sight of a possible special edition smartphone done right.


Opening the box, there’s a Coca-Cola® bottle outline that you can peel to get the papers you’ll need…

…or you can just open it from the top side.

Inside, you can find cool, branded DIY stickers.

There are also a limited number card and a custom-made SIM ejector tool resembling a bottle cap.

Underneath, you can find the smartphone’s essentials.

There’s the 33W SuperVOOC adapter…

…and a USB-C to USB-A cable.

It comes with a transparent case so you can see the Coca-Cola® design clearly.

P.S. You can plaster the jelly case with the DIY stickers included in the box.

In true Coca-Cola® fashion

Everything from the box up to the smartphone, the Coca-Cola® branding stood out as a refreshing take on special edition smartphones. The collaboration is somewhat reminiscent of partnerships between tech brands and high fashion.

For most people, the design can be a bit tacky. But I know all too well that there are people who are true Coca-Cola® fans, willing to parade their special edition smartphone. (My best friend is one!)

Moreover, the units got sold out upon launching on realme’s official channels. For that to happen, I knew right away they did something right.

Coca-Cola® inside and out

Most special edition smartphones don’t care about the user interface and experience after plastering their designs on the phone’s back panel and the box.

The realme 10 Pro 5G Coca-Cola® Edition is a different breed. Its lock screen comes with a dynamic soda fizz bubble effect, and the skin for realme UI follows a retro red and black palette, sticking to the Coca-Cola® branding.

It also comes with exclusive 80s cola filters, and to make it even more refreshing, the camera shutter mimics the popping sound of a freshly-opened bottle of Coke® when taking photos.

Furthermore, you can customize the ringtone and notification sounds using nostalgic Coca-Cola® jingles.

Just like the realme 10 Pro 5G

It isn’t just bells and whistles for this smartphone. After all, it’s still the realme 10 Pro 5G housing a Snapdragon 695 5G chipset, a 5000mAh battery, and 256GB of internal storage.

If you haven’t read our review (which I suggest you should), take the time to peruse it and see why this smartphone is an ultra-reliable phone with numerous enhancements.

But if you don’t have the luxury of time… in a nutshell, the realme 10 Pro 5G is a worthy midrange pickup. It’s got a display worth looking at, next-level specs that let you play and multitask, magical cameras for a smartphone with an affordable price point, and a smooth AF performance.
