E always knew that the HTC U11, while capable as it is gorgeous, couldn’t possibly keep its title as the industry’s best shooter, per DxOMark. And now it’s time to crown the new phone which will carry on the title.

Ten days after the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus launch, two of Apple’s latest smartphones are finally available in stores in the following countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, UAE, the UK, the …
S we previously mentioned, Google and HTC have reached an all-cash agreement that will see the search and software giant pay $1.1 billion to absorb the latter’s Pixel team and integrate it into Google’s workforce.
IVO has a new Android on offer, though this one ups the ante not only for the Chinese OEM but also for selfie smartphones en masse. And while the Vivo V7+ is pretty much what we had expected it to be all along, it leaves a better impression in person.
OR a while now, every OEM in the budget category seems to be focusing on performance, the camera department, or a combination of both — with mixed success. Few sweat the other stuff, like battery life.
OU’D think that Xiaomi is not going to introduce another high-end smartphone after it had launched the Mi MIX 2 a week ago. You could be wrong. A product code-named Xiaomi Chiron has appeared on GFXBench, and it’s anything but budget.
day after the Meizu M6 is announced in China, another manufacturer is holding a phone launch there. Vivo is set to unveil the Vivo X20 on September 21. And if we in the Philippines are lucky, we might see it being rolled out to local stores.
EIZU, per usual, is refreshing its M series smartphones this year. The M6 Note debuted last month, and the OEM has reported sales of over 200,000 units in its native China, as multiple news outlets have reported.
T’S a curious coincidence that days after the announcement of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, Chinese startup Doogee Mobile has come out with a new borderless phone that takes after the Xiaomi concept.

ndroid One, Google’s struggling advocacy to bring slick and pure Android to the masses, isn’t dead after all. The search and software giant has simply been biding its time, refining Android while secretly recruiting hardware partners that have worldwide appeal, as we all found out recently. Xiaomi’s Mi A1 was announced first. A Moto-branded Android One phone could be next.
HE Apple iPhone X is finally here, and there’s no arguing that it’s the best iPhone ever from both an aesthetic and technical standpoint. The 10th anniversary model has also started hitting popular benchmarking app Geekbench.
N the aftermath of Android flagship announcements, all eyes have turned toward Apple and the more striking, the more stimulating iPhone X (it’s pronounced “ten,” not “ex”), in particular. And the American tech giant delivered. Like, big time.
PPLE is set to announce a trio of new iPhones Tuesday, September 12th (September 13 in the Philippines), and the model we’re all excited about will likely be called iPhone X, while the other two will be known as the Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
NDROID One, Google’s line of budget devices that’s originally targeted at developing markets, is alive and well indeed. Just days after Xiaomi launched its first phone with stock Android, we’re hearing that Motorola may be the next manufacturer to release an Android One handset.
HE OPPO A71 is now available in stores across the Philippines. Unlike the F series smartphones, however, it isn’t being marketed as a “selfie expert” — and rightfully so. The tagline this time around is “speedy operation,” harping on the octa-core processor and the 3GB of RAM that it incorporates, as well as the perceived performance tied to the hardware …
