Razer Phone vs iPhone 8

The Razer Phone and iPhone 8 aren’t entirely aimed at the same audience. The former being a likely niche device, built specifically for gamers, and the latter being as mainstream as mainstream gets. But they’re both high-end handsets with high-end prices to match and they both have serious gaming skills, so there will be some crossover in their appeal.

Class action lawsuit in the works against Google for Pixel 2 XL issues

Class action lawsuit in the works against Google for Pixel 2 XL issues

  Google’s Pixel 2, and the Pixel 2 XL more than that, have definitely bin hit by quite a few issues since their launch last month. While the bigger model has had more problems, some Pixel 2 units did exhibit weird clicking and whistling. On the other hand, various Pixel 2 XL phones have been caught suffering from burn-in, and even a “black smear”. Google may get in a lot of trouble over these things soon, as a law firm is currently investigating whether there’s enough to justify a class action against the company.   We’re talking about Girard Gibbs, which incidentally…

Promo video shows how cool iPhone’s Portrait Mode would have looked for videos

Apple posted a video dubbed Portraits of Her, which promotes the new and improved Portrait mode of the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, specifically the cool Portrait Lighting feature. But the video shows the effect done on video something the actual iPhones cant pull off. It does look quite cool though, maybe well see something similar in future iPhones.

  Now that the Note8 has been announced, Samsung can go ahead and release dual camera smartphones down the ranks.

And no prices have been mentioned at all. Thankfully though, LG may have already revealed how much the V30 is going to cost stateside. Remember that Twitter contest that the company started yesterday,…
