Latest Google Pixel 3 leak

The Google Pixel 3 and its larger version are the two phones that have received this year the dubiously honorable prize of being the most leaked of the year. Specifications, unboxings, photos taken with your camera and even a review made weeks before your presentation. A situation that has been normalized as the weeks have passed and new data came to light, but which would have caused great outrage had it occurred with another manufacturer. In any case, there was a missing data to know and that nothing was known with certainty until now: the colors in which this new terminal will hit the market.

Despite being a commonly underestimated field, colors are a determining factor in consumer products, as many of the manufacturers have already shown in the past, including Google. This year the Mountain View company, as a result of the latest movements in the sector and based on its experience in previous years, seems to banish a key to include another line of smartphones.

According sources, Google is planning to introduce a pink variant of the Pixel 3. It’s pretty pale, and apparently Google is branding it as ‘Sand.’ It doesn’t look particularly appealing to me from the leaked renders, but hopefully it’ll be better in person.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium review, features a 4K screen

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium has a 5.5-inch 4K screen that is simply impressive, as Tech Radar highlights, and is capable of playing high-resolution content. However, having a resolution like this implies that there is not much content that can cope with it.

With a rear camera of 19 megapixels it is capable of recording videos in slow motion at 960 frames per second, slower than most cell phones in the market. The problem with this feature is that it is able to do this only for a second, so you have to be precise.

Like other options, it has 8 GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. Its cost is $700 dollars.

Another of its characteristics, according to the same medium, is security. It is possible to unblock it with a fingerprint or with facial recognition. In comparison with other devices, this does not have resistance to water and dust, which makes it the most careful.

Its 8 GB of RAM and its Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor make it a very solid competitor in terms of performance. Its price is $ 499 in its version of 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory, or $ 559 with 128 GB of memory and 8 GB of RAM.

LG V30 review, features 4 GB of RAM and a 6-inch screen

The LG V30 as Tech Radar highlights, this cell phone is a strong combination of power and performance. With a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4 GB of RAM and a 6-inch screen, it can fight with other high-end phones.

One of the things that stands out from this cell phone, are its powerful speakers that put it above all its competitors as far as sound is concerned. However, as mentioned in the same media, almost all its features are very similar to those of the Samsung S8 and its price of $ 830 puts it in the pricey section.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro review

The Huawei Mate 10 Pro according to some media sources such as CNET or Tech Radar, this cell phone can be one of the best in terms of battery performance. It is able to last more than a day with a single charge thanks to the 4,000 milliamperes battery it has. However, it lacks one of the latest innovations that other devices already have, such as wireless charging.

As for its other features, it incorporates a 6-inch high-resolution screen and 6 GB of RAM, which allow it to be a powerful cell phone; IP 67 water and dust resistance, 8 front camera and one of its 12 megapixel rear cameras. It is very similar to other devices in its range. It costs $950 dollars.

iPhone 8 Plus review

The iPhone 8 Plus comes with a 5.5-inch full HD screen, it maintains the design that the company presented in the iPhone 6. However, the novelty here has to do with respect to the materials used because, as in the iPhone X, all its cover is made up of glass. The screen size of this device is smaller because it still retains the fingerprint reader for unlocking.

In the other features is very similar to the iPhone X, it has the same resistance to water and dust, the same RAM, and the same chip, camera and wireless charging. The difference with the latter is that the 8 Plus, as highlighted by CNET, which does not have a portrait mode in the front camera and has a lower capacity battery: 2,961 milliamps.

Its launch price was $799 dollars for its 64 GB version.

iPhone X review

The iPhone X incorporates the latest innovation from Apple. This cell phone named after the 10th anniversary of the launch of the first iPhone, represents a change in important design with respect to the latest models. This cell phone has a 5.8-inch OLED HDR screen that covers the entire front of the device. To achieve this, Apple decided to remove the fingerprint reader, replacing it with a front sensor with facial recognition for unlocking the phone. This redesign, however, as highlighted by The Guardian, makes it excessively fragile as it has a glass cover and not aluminum.

It has 3 GB of RAM memory and an A11 chip that, as published by the press, is the most powerful one ever used in a mobile device. As for the internal memory, there are two options of 64 GB and 256 GB non-expandable. As with the 7 and 7 plus models, it has an IP 67 resistance to water and dust. Another feature is the possibility of wireless charging, that is, a cable is not necessary to fill the 2,716 milliampere battery.

As for the camera, it has a double rear camera of 12 megapixels (MP) and a front camera of 7 MP. The company added several professional lighting options to its portrait mode that makes its debut on the front camera; however, these are still in a beta phase. The starting price in the United States was $1,000 dollars.

The most outstanding feature of Apple’s new smartphone is its Face ID, the face recognition system, with 3D face reading. However the computer security company Bkav of Vietnam showed that it could hack the system with a mask with parts printed in 2D and 3D.

When the iPhone X was introduced, it was not said that the system was un-hackable but more reliable than other biometric authentication tools. According to the director of Apple Phil Schiller, the chances of a person unlocking an iPhone with Face ID is one in a million, while the options of this happening with the Touch Id is 1 in 50 thousand.

The iPhone X is the first cell phone of the company to incorporate OLED screen. It stands out for its dual 12 MP camera, which allows 2X optical zoom. In addition, it has optical stabilization in each of its lenses: a telephoto and a wide angle, with focal aperture of 1.8 and 2.4 respectively.

Samsung Galaxy S8 review

As mentioned by Phone Arena, this new phone was revolutionary in terms of the design and size of its 5.8-inch curved screen, which occupies almost its entire surface. With its Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, this cell phone is very powerful in terms of performance.

The middle button was removed to give even more space to the screen and the camera had improvements in the software, which makes it one of the best you can have on a mobile device. It has a fingerprint reader in the back that can sometimes be confused with the camera, as Android Central warns, but this can be solved with the iris reader of the front camera.

With a price of $725 dollars, it is one of the best high-end options in terms of the quality / price ratio.

The Galaxy Note 8 the latest tabletphone from Samsung

After the controversy generated by the problems with the Note 7 battery, the Korean company Samsung sought to recover the lost ground with a powerful and innovative device. With a 6.3-inch OLED screen that occupies almost the entire front of the phone, this cell phone is the first of the company that features a dual camera and is probably the most powerful Android device at the moment.

Its 6 GB RAM allows this device to do enough tasks at the same time. Its internal storage is 64, 128 or 256 GB and is expandable. As Android Authority highlights, the presence of the stylus takes the editing of texts, videos and photographs a step further. This cell phone has an IP 68 resistance to water, that is to a depth of 1.5 meters, as well as dust protection.

As CNET points out, this device drags the problems of the Samsung Galaxy S8 in terms of the strange location of the finger print reader located in the back.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has a market price of $950 dollars.

It is not a tablet or a phone. This new release of Samsung is more like a ‘tabletphone’. Its internal memory can hold up to 64 giggabytes of storage. It also comes with an ‘S Pen’, an electronic pen to navigate the phone more easily. The new model comes with a built-in quick charge mechanics. With this, you can charge up to 60% of the battery of the electronic device in a short period of time.

Camera

We need to talk about the Galaxy Note 8’s camera. The two 12 megapixel sensors are capable of doing wonders in automatic mode of this device. It is clear that we can get more juice in the ‘Pro’ mode, but it will be more than enough with the automatic for most users. Its secondary camera has telephoto, which allows us to zoom X2 without losing image quality. This is something that we have been seeing for years in compact cameras, but that now begins to reach mobile phones.

This camera leaves us with one of the best experiences in the market. Its quality is incredible, as well as the detail it gets in up close shots. The contrast, saturation and brightness level is managed almost perfectly in automatic mode, although in very complicated scenes or backlighting, it may be worth switching to ‘Pro’ mode to set the exposure to your liking.

Battery life

The Galaxy Note 8 has a battery of 3,300 mAh, which although it leaves us with a day of use but don’t expect to  have 8 or 9 hours of screen like in other devices of this range. But even so, expect to have more than enough batter for every day tasks. This is remarkable, because although there are devices with this size that offer us more battery life, few have the screen quality and performance of this device. By using it intensively you will be able to hold it all day without any problem, so users who use it more modestly may reach the end of the day more comfortable. You can wait between 5 and a half hours and 6 hours of active screen with a varied use.

S-Pen

One of the things that characterizes the Note range from its beginning is the inclusion of the S-Pen. In this Note 8 we also have it. It has 4096 pressure levels and IP67 certification against water and dust. When removing the S-Pen from the body of the Note 8, it offers several common tools that may be convenient (or not). There are users who take great advantage of the stylus to navigate the device, and others who use it for more artistic tasks. It is an extra that in many occasions will be appreciated.
