Google Pixel 7a: Everything you need to know

Google Pixel 7a: Everything you need to know

December 04, 2022 Gadgets / Reviews
Google may have already revealed its latest flagship Pixel devices, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, but many eyes are on the cheaper model that is expected to follow: the Google Pixel 7a. Here’s all we know so far about the model that could be the benchmark for mid-range Android phones in 2023.  When will the Google Pixel 7a be released? We don’t have an official release date for the Google Pixel 7a at the time of writing, but the company usually releases its a-series of Pixels in the summer. Here’s how the previous models lined-up:  Google Pixel 6a: July 2022 Google Pixel 5a 5G: August 2021 Google Pixel 4a 5G: October 2020 Google Pixel 4a: August 2020 Google Pixel 3a: May 2019 There are a few outliers, such as the Pixel 4a 5G that made its debut in October, but that particular model was unusual in that it marked the move to 5G rather than a next generation of the product. The 5a 5G was also unique as it only launched in the US and Japan, unlike its siblings that

Motorola Edge 40 series: Everything we know so far

November 30, 2022 Gadgets / Motorola
Motorola is one of the grand old names of smartphones, so it’s always interesting to see what it comes up with when new models are announced. We were impressed by the Edge 30 series and with rumours beginning to appear regarding its successor, we gather together all the news and details we know so far about the Motorola Edge 40 series, also known as the Moto X40. When will the Motorola Edge 40 series be released? Motorola has confirmed that it will launch the X40 series in China some time in December, teasing the phone with a poster comparing it to an SUV on the basis of its IP68 water-resistance rating.     Since the X30 line eventually released in the West as the Edge 30 series, it stands to reason that the X40 phones will eventually be known to us as the Edge 40.   How much will the Motorola Edge 40 cost? We’ve yet to see any details on pricing for the Motorola Edge 40 range. To give ourselves some idea though we can look back to the previous generation. Her

iPhone 14 Pro: Everything you need to know

September 11, 2022 Apple / Gadgets
Apple’s new iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have a new screen design that does away with the familiar notch in favour of a pill-shaped and circular cut-out in the screen that houses the sensor array for Face ID and cameras, with the proximity sensor now behind the display. The phones fill in the gap between the two with black pixels. Apple calls this created long pill shape the Dynamic Island, which will appear to expand and retract depending on what you’re doing on the phone, from music playback, to using Face ID, to making payments. It can also display things like sports scores when you’re in other apps. Image: Apple The iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max also have slightly slimmer bezels but are still 6.1in and 6.7in in size and are the first iPhones to support always-on display features that we’ve seen on Android phones for the past few years, allowing information like time, date, and notifications to be glanced at even when the screen isn’t fully on. Controversially, the iPhone 14 P

Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro review

September 10, 2022 Asus / Gadgets
Gaming phones are a relatively modern concept, with the first handsets arriving just five years ago. Several brands have been vying for your attention since then, including Razer, Black Shark and Red Magic.    But it’s Asus that has emerged as the market leader, going above and beyond what you’d expect from any phone. However, ROG (Republic of gamers) Phones are typically more expensive than rival handsets, so it’s not always an obvious choice. Image: Anyron Copeman / Foundry When it comes to the ROG Phone 6 Series, things get even more complicated. There are regular and Pro models to choose from, with the latter reviewed here.   Does it do enough to justify the premium price tag, or would paying less still get you everything you want from a gaming phone? I spent a few weeks with 6 Pro to find out.  Design and build Premium but bulky design  Eye-catching gamer aesthetic  Secondary display has limited functionality  The ROG Phones have never tried to hide the fact that they are gaming p

Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 in for review

Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 in for review

September 08, 2022 Gadgets / Mix Fold 2
Image: Google The Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 is among the thinnest foldables around. It measures 5.4mm when unfolded, and 11.2mm when folded. Compare that to the Galaxy Z Fold4's 6.3mm/15.8mm, and the Xiaomi phone feels thin as air. There's a lot to say about the Mix Fold 2 in comparison to the Galaxy Z Fold4. The Xiaomi foldable has a conventional-feeling outer display with a 21:9 aspect, which is much better than the Galaxy Z Fold4's improved, but still overly tall 23:9 cover screen. That means that using the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 when closed feels almost as natural as using any slab phone. The outer screen is also bigger at 6.56-inch compared to the Fold4's 6.2-inch screen. Display Unfold the pair and the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 has another clear screen size advantage. Its inner display stretches 8.02 inches, or 206 cm2 in total area, while the Galaxy Z Fold4's foldable display is 7.6-inch or 183.2 cm2. If you like your displays big, then the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 has a clear size a

Nothing opens the door for custom ROMs with kernel source release

July 17, 2022 Gadgets
Whether Nothing's freshman Phone (1) has you excited or not, there might be another reason to be interested in it. Nothing has just released its first set of kernel sources for the Nothing Phone (1). Paired with the fact that security researcher Linuxct revealed that the device should be bootloader unlockable, it sounds like the phone might have some custom ROMs to look forward to. The timing here is notable, given recent events. The Nothing Phone (1) was only technically released on Tuesday, July 12th, and kernel sources are being released a mere three days later. For a little perspective, although it claims to be a pro-ROM and pro-developer brand,  OnePlus has been notably late to release  its  kernel sources recently . Although it was a little more prompt, even the OnePlus 10 Pro's kernel sources took two weeks to land, and that's actually pretty fast for some Android brands. It's not rare for a source release to take even longer than that. Companies are required to
