TWRP is still the best custom recovery available, giving Android users a better way to flash ROMs and back up their devices. Part of the reason it's so great is that can be ported to new devices fairly easily. Since we last covered the project earlier this month, a few more phones have been added to the roster. Read More
We didn't even know the ASUS 360° Camera existed, but apparently it was announced along with the ZenFone 4 in August. This little ball-shaped camera attaches via USB-C or MicroUSB to your phone and takes spherical images with its two 210° lenses. It can take 4K (4096x2048) photos and 2K (2048x1024) videos, and let you view them as immersive panoramas, asteroids or crystalballs (both a little reminiscent of Tiny Planet).
Now the ASUS 360° Camera has its own app on the Play Store so you can control the camera if you purchase it. It can take photos with multiple filters, videos, time-lapses, and stream live to "popular social media platforms." You can also view previously taken photos in a VR immersive mode too. Read More
We've all heard the phrase "jack of all trades, master of none," and there's a distinctly negative connotation to it. The more something tries to do, the worse it is at any one task. Unfortunately, it still holds true today. But some products, like this one, are starting to toe the line.
ASUS' latest Chromebook Flip C101PA combines performance with excellent build quality in a convertible package. So not only do you get a great Chromebook, to a certain degree, you also get a good Android tablet. And it will only cost you $299 — and a somewhat disappointing screen. Read More
In the wake of the Pixel madness yesterday, Asus and Verizon have announced the ZenFone V, a mid-tier phone exclusive to the Big Red carrier. For $384, or $16/mo for twenty-four months, you get a decent little device with yesteryear's high-end specs. Read More
Asus made the ZenFone 4 family official in North America recently, and now it's Europe's turn to get a preview of things to come. Five different ZenFone 4 devices will be rolling out to Europe in the coming months: the ZenFone 4 Pro, ZenFone 4, ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro, ZenFone 4 Selfie and ZenFone 4 Max. They run the gamut from budget to flagship. Read More
Like many manufacturers, ASUS has its own Android skin - ZenUI. Version 4.0 of the skin was introduced alongside the company's ZenFone 4 lineup, but ASUS also promised to bring the new version to the existing ZF3 series. The update process has now begun, with the ZF3 Zoom becoming the first device to be updated. Read More
Asus was launching ZenFone 3 variants in the US as recently as a few months ago, but it also started pushing the first ZenFone 4 phones over the summer in select markets. Starting today, the ZenFone 4 series is rolling out in the US and Canada, but it's starting with the ZenFone 4 Max 5.5". This is hardly the most impressive device in the lineup, but it has a gigantic battery. Read More
Now that Android 8.0 Oreo has made its official debut, many of you are eagerly awaiting news on when your device will receive the latest and greatest from Google. But there are still devices that didn't even have last year's Nougat, like the ASUS ZenPad Z10 tablet on Verizon - that is, until now. Read More
Chromebooks that support the Play Store on the stable channel are still few and far between. The ASUS C100PA, otherwise known as the Chromebook Flip, is one of them and for the next 15 hours or so, you can grab one for cheap on Woot!
This is a factory reconditioned unit, which Woot! specifies is a returned unit that has been inspected, brought back to factory state by the original manufacturer or a certified partner, and repackaged. According to the description, it's "as close to new as you can get without technically being new." That seems like a good place to start, plus the C100PA in this case is backed by a 90-day ASUS warranty. Read More
