    Apple kicks off iPhone SE clearance sale, save up to $150 on unlocked models

    Although Apple has already discontinued the iPhone SE, the Cupertino-based company realized that it could still make some money from selling this product. As such, the iPhone SE was made available for purchase directly through Apple's official store at a good $100 discount.

    Every time Apple starts to sell the iPhone SE on its website, the phone sold out quite fast. Today, Apple has kicked off another iPhone SE clearance sale, but this time customers can choose just about any color or model (32GB, 128GB).

    The 32GB iPhone SE is available for $250, while the 128GB costs $300. All phones ...

    Foldable designs and 5G connectivity are widely expected to take center stage at MWC 2019 in Barcelona in just a few days, but while the mobile industry is definitely pinning its hopes on these two breakthroughs for a global market rebound, neither is yet a very mature or accessible technology. Believe it or not, Oppo may have something in the pipeline that we can all get behind right away, with pretty obvious real-world utility and strong game-changing potential.

    When it comes to mobile payment services, Apple and Google compete against each other in the United States, as both giants are trying to amass as many customers as possible. In fact, Apple Pay and Google Pay add new banks and financial institutions on a monthly basis, but the numbers vary greatly.

    For example, early this month, Apple Pay support was added for 15 new banks, far from what Google Pay managed to add this month. The updated list of banks and credit unions in the U.S. that offer Google Pay support has been recently updated with 43 new banks.

    This is what Apple's foldable smartphone could look like

    The likes of Samsung, Huawei, and Motorola are all set to announce their first foldable smartphones later this year. Apple, however, isn't expected to unveil its offering until the second half of 2020 and, with such a long wait ahead of us, details about the device are rather limited at the moment. But thanks to the folks over at LetsGoDigital, a recent patent which sheds some light on Apple?s future offering has now been uncovered.


    Unlike the adaptations from Samsung and Xiaomi which are expected to fold horizontally, Apple is seemingly developing a smartphone that ...

    For a little while there, it seemed like gaming phones could become the industry's next big thing. But because essentially all high-end handsets are more than capable of running popular graphics-intensive titles like PUBG Mobile and Fortnite in crystal clear detail, Razer and Asus aren't exactly topping the charts in terms of global smartphone sales.


    Still, the Razer Phone 2 is on track for an official Android Pie rollout start by the end of the month, according to a timeline shared with Android Authority as the company's internal beta process draws to a close. That's... not ...

    A report from OptoFidelity (via Android Authority), a company that tests used phones, reveals that it is generally okay to purchase a previously owned handset. After testing over 1 million second hand units, the company says that the risk of purchasing a used phone is low. OptoFidelty's SVP Hans Kuosmanen says, "First of all, if you buy the phone from an established supplier, you can trust them. They are testing and repairing the phones, if needed, before putting them on sale. We have been working with quite a number of them, and they do take the issue of quality very seriously."

    Truth be told, we're not sure what Razer would have expected from a niche product like the Razer Phone. Advertised as a gaming phone, the top-tier device faced fierce competition from flagships coming from major smartphone companies.

    Apparently, the Razer Phone and its sequel didn't sell that well, which forced the company to take action. Instead of announcing its third smartphone, Razer has decided to lay off most of its mobile device and hardware engineer staff last week, Droid-life reports.

    An interesting trend can be observed with modern smartphones over the last several years ? we see considerable advancements in nearly all areas of design, hardware, and software, but battery life always seems to improve at a slower pace. 


    The Lithium-ion batteries found in virtually any smartphone have served us well for many years, but the technology certainly has its limits. Most handsets will shut down if they don't get some quality time with a charger after a day or two of intense usage, and iPhones are no exception. This is why portable power banks are still ...

    The Samsung Galaxy S10 is surely among the hottest devices to drop in 2019. Samsung has had a pretty good run in the past few years and tech fans are at the edge of their seats, waiting to see what the new S10 family will bring.

    Yeah, it turns out leak culture is alive and doing really well... and information on a hot device like the Galaxy S10 is bound to leak out. Like ? a lot. We've seen and heard quite a lot about the Galaxy S10, to the point that some would say the official reveal won't actually be revealing anything.

We're not (just) talking about trade-in deals, mind you, but also savings offered to local consumers with absolutely no strings attached or convoluted terms and conditions via major third-party retailers like JD.com and Tmall.


    At first, these price reductions reportedly did the trick, significantly boosting iPhone sales between January 11 and 30, but in the long run, analysts quoted by AppleInsider ...

    Technically, the Galaxy Tab S5e that Samsung pretty much unveiled out of nowhere last week is not meant as a replacement for the high-end Galaxy Tab S4. But at a starting price of $400, with a top-notch Super AMOLED display in tow, as well as a fairly respectable processor and an insanely thin profile, the mid-range 10.5-incher makes it painfully obvious that the Tab S4 is a bit on the expensive side.

    Last year, OnePlus gave us two phones with a notch ? the OnePlus 6 had a rather large, iPhone-esque notch up top, while the OnePlus 6T had the "waterdrop notch", where the cutout on top of the screen is more of a nub, giving it a much cleaner look. Rumor has it that, this year, we will get a completely notchless design with the selfie camera being hidden behind ...

    Over the last couple of years, smartphones have gone from carrying a 16:9 aspect ratio to screens as tall and thin as 19:9. For those who have been wondering what this aspect ratio is all about, it simply is a ratio measuring the width to the height of a screen. The higher the first number, the taller and thinner the display on a handset. And Sony is expected to unveil three new phones that sport an aspect ratio of 21:9 (the budget Xperia L3 model will reportedly feature an 18:9 ratio).

Group FaceTime was perhaps the most notable add-on, attracting a lot of positive and then negative attention as it promised to support simultaneous video conferencing with up to 32 people, miserably failing however at protecting users' privacy.


    But even after Apple discovered the widely publicized eavesdropping glitch (from a teenager), temporarily disabling the feature until a bug-fixing ...

    Apple patented rollable display tech that can be used for anything from watches to TVs

    In a few years, the Apple Watch 4 might look like a relic

    Patents are cool because they reveal where technology is headed further into the future than the usual leaks and renders. And while not every patented tech makes it into a commercially available device, if a company is patenting something it?s usually considering it for its products.

    The latest patent coming from Apple reveals where the Apple Watch might be headed. Reaching us thanks to Foldable.News, is the patent titled ?Display module and system applications?, describing an ...

    This might be your last chance to get a 64GB BlackBerry KEYone at an unrivaled price

    While the BlackBerry brand comeback of the past couple of years hasn't been quite as spectacular as Nokia's revival under the management of HMD Global, it's certainly nice to see phones with modern specifications and physical keyboards still out and about. At least for the sake of diversity, the mobile industry needs devices like the TCL-made BlackBerry KEYone, KEY2, and KEY2 LE.


    The oldest of those three business-friendly typing machines is about to turn two, which probably means it won't be available for sale much longer. In fact, Best Buy recently ran a clearance sale on the ...

    Samsung Galaxy Buds will be available in a blinding color, to be 'Tuned by AKG'

    One of the most interesting (and polarizing) new color options for the Galaxy S10 lineup is called Canary Yellow. It's reserved for the more affordable Galaxy S10e, which is likely going to come in a handful of lively hues, and has been a divisive topic due to its shocking appearance. Samsung's Canary Yellow, you see?or at least what we've seen in renders so far?is not like a 'regular' yellow, but a more garish shade that really seems to 'pop'.

    Newly leaked press images of Samsung's upcoming wireless earbuds?aptly named the Galaxy Buds?seem to confirm that the accessory ...

    Sony essentially confirms Xperia XZ4 launch at MWC with 'new perspective' teaser

    As Samsung plans to unveil the Galaxy S10 lineup and highly anticipated Galaxy Fold several days before the 2019 Mobile World Congress, while Huawei will apparently keep us waiting until next month for the P30 launch, this year's MWC needs a different hero. Many companies are likely to try to capture the Barcelona limelight with buzzworthy 5G-related announcements and foldable demonstrations, but although Sony's phones have dwindled in popularity these past few years, it would be foolish to disregard the Xperia XZ4.


    The next-gen flagship is not mentioned by name in a fresh ...

    Massive leak details Apple's 2019 roadmap: New iPhones, iPad, Apple Watch, AirPods, MacBook, more

    When it comes to leaking Apple secrets, few are as adept as insider Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a nearly pristine track record for disclosing Cupertino's plans way ahead of their due time. That's why when Ming-Chi Kuo speaks, many listen, and that's precisely what happened just a while ago - the insider came up with a round of pretty saucy information regarding Apple's hardware roadmap for 2019. 




    Have in mind that the information detailed below only reflects on the hardware side of things although Apple might have release a slew of software services as ...

    LG G7 ThinQ price goes down to $430 at B&H in its unlocked US variant

    The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 are not the only 2018 phones that should attract the attention of bargain hunters before the first wave of 2019 flagships is released, as the LG G7 ThinQ can also be purchased at a pretty great price from B&H Photo Video right now. We're obviously talking about unlocked units designed specifically for the US market here, which used to cost $749.99 a pop back in the day.


    Discounted multiple times of late by this very same retailer, as well as the likes of Amazon and Walmart, the relatively well-reviewed 6.1-incher is currently available ...

    Apple Watch Series 5 to bring ECG functionality to more regions this year

    Apple Watch Series 5 may come with new and improved casing design for the ceramic model and feature ECG (electrocardiogram) support in more regions. This according to the latest investor note from credible Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

    In his latest investor note, Kuo reveals his many predictions about Apple's 2019 iPhone, iPad, and MacBook lineups, but only briefly mentions the Apple Watch. Still, the information shared could be of value, as the ECG capabilities of the Apple Watch Series 4 are its strongest feature.

    Unfortunately, the ECG feature ...
