The 'Chrome Home' interface first appeared back in October, which only moved Chrome's address bar to the bottom of the screen. Since then, it has turned into a complete overhaul of the app's interface, with a revamped New Tab Page being added into the mix. Now it's showing up in Chrome Beta by default for some users.

ASUS isn't always the best with updates. The company often releases phones with already-outdated software, like the ZenFone 3 Zoom that came with Marshmallow. In a similar vein, the ZenWatch 2 and 3 were some of the last watches to get Android Wear 2.0. But at the ZenFone 4 launch event, ASUS promised that the entire ZenFone 3 and 4 lineup would get Android O. Read More
Google has partnered with another manufacturer to produce a phone with Tango on board, for better or for worse. Stepping up to the plate this time is Asus with the ZenFone AR. The first phone ever to support both Tango and Daydream VR comes in a much, much smaller package than last year's Phab2 Pro from Lenovo, and accomplishes both things in an arguably better manner.
The ZenFone AR comes with a pretty good camera, a nice Super AMOLED screen, Nougat, and the least offensive version of ZenUI to date. Unfortunately, it's the battery life that really drags this phone down. Read More

Ahead of its reveal on August 31st at IFA in Berlin, we've been able to build a pretty good idea of what to expect from LG's upcoming flagship, the V30. We know it'll have a 6.0" 1440p P-OLED display with a tall 18:9 ratio and curved edges (LG is calling it FullVision). We know it'll have a dual camera setup with a 16MP, f/1.6 aperture main snapper flanked by a 13MP wide angle lens. We know the secondary screen is being replaced by a floating action bar. We also had a pretty good idea of what it's going to look like, from CAD renders and leaked videos. Read More

Then a third tab was added, and even more users received the changed interface. Read More
