This cheap, rugged Chinese smartphone survived Burning Man

This cheap, rugged Chinese smartphone survived Burning Man

Between my podcast and my various writing gigs, I play with a lot of new phones — about one per week, actually. Most of these are the usual sort of high-end stuff (both premium and affordable), some are specialized, niche products, and a few are mid-range devices. Obviously, my dance card is pretty full, so I rarely get the chance to dip my toes in the pool of oddball Chinese phones. I recently partnered with an online store for my blog and they offered to send me a sub-$300 handset of my choice. I settled on the uleFone Armor 6E, an affordable, ruggedized phone with decent specs — at least on paper.

Sony Xperia 5 skips a bunch of numbers, but it's basically just an Xperia 1 compact

Sony Xperia 5 skips a bunch of numbers, but it's basically just an Xperia 1 compact

Sony just took the wraps off the Xperia 5 at IFA, and it's pretty much what we expected based on the earlier leaks. The company has decided to skip digits 2-4 with the new phone, and while that might imply big changes, many of the specs are substantially unchanged from the Xperia 1 launched earlier this year. This is basically the same phone, but smaller and with a lower-resolution screen.

Acer reveals four new Intel-powered Chromebooks at IFA, including a refreshed 11" Spin

Today at IFA, Acer has unveiled four new Chromebooks with surprisingly inexpensive price tags. While they're equipped with cost-appropriate Intel Celeron CPUs, some hide optional high-end features like full HD displays and up to 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. The four models cover sizes ranging from 15" to 11" in both convertible and non-convertible form-factors, starting from $250-330.

Galaxy Note10+ review: Reaching peak Note

Galaxy Note10+ review: Reaching peak Note

The Galaxy Note10+ is the biggest Galaxy Note Samsung's released yet (which tends to be the case every year), but I'll get straight to the point: it's quite possibly the one with the fewest differences from its smaller Galaxy S siblings, as well. Even size doesn't seem to be much of a differentiator anymore, as the six-month-old Galaxy S10+ is a scant few millimeters shorter and narrower than the mighty Note10+. This is where I've ended up after using the phone for a couple of weeks, and I just can't shake that comparison.

Xiaomi announces Redmi Note 8 and 8 Pro with a whopping 64MP camera

While Xiaomi devices are few and far between in the US, the Chinese company could conquer the European market quite easily with its cheap but good smartphones sporting ludicrously high specs. The manufacturer is looking to continue this trend with today's official unveiling of the Redmi Note 8 and 8 Pro – the latter being equipped with a stunning 64MP camera.

Oppo Reno2 series unveiled in India: Three phones with four rear cameras each

Oppo Reno2 series unveiled in India: Three phones with four rear cameras each

Oppo's move into the Indian market continues, and today the company formally revealed the Reno2 which it's been teasing for the last month. It's also just one part of a whole series of Reno2 phones, which includes two cheaper MediaTek-powered devices. All of the new phones sport four cameras, with the Reno2 ostensibly delivering up to "20x" zoom, though most of that is courtesy of software — sadly, it doesn't have the 6x periscope optical zoom benefits of the older Reno Zoom.

[Update: 4G can now be activated] Mobvoi launches a revamped version of the TicWatch Pro with 4G/LTE

[Update: 4G can now be activated] Mobvoi launches a revamped version of the TicWatch Pro with 4G/LTE

Wear OS smartwatches are seen as sub-par compared to the competition, mainly because most of them still use outdated processors or lack key features. With the TicWatch Pro, Mobvoi managed to design one of the most attractive intelligent timepieces powered by Google's OS on the market. However, despite its good selling points, the product lacked LTE connectivity, which prevented owners from using all their watch's features on the go.

Asus ROG Phone II is officially a beast: SD 855 Plus, 120Hz display, 6,000mAh battery

We've been skeptical about the need for dedicated gaming phones over the years, but it appears there's enough appetite for them as they keep on coming. The latest is the second generation ROG Phone from Asus, and its got an insane spec list that no other Android phone can boast right now, just as we were expecting after the recent leaks.

Xiaomi's Android One-toting Mi A3 is official: 48MP camera and in-screen fingerprint scanner for €250

Xiaomi's Android One-toting Mi A3 is official: 48MP camera and in-screen fingerprint scanner for €250

After recent leaks, we knew Xiaomi would soon be introducing its latest Android One phone, and now the Mi A3 has been officially unveiled. Its predecessors were pretty well received, so we have high hopes for this one. For just €250 it offers a 48MP sensor as part of a triple camera setup, an in-screen fingerprint scanner, and a 6-inch AMOLED display (Edit: Sadly it's only HD+, 720x1520 — no wonder they didn't emphasize that in the PR) with a waterdrop notch.
