Earlier today we reported that Google's latest Pixels had some low audio quality when recording videos, but that isn't the only issue to have appeared since the pair of phones launched. There are also widespread reports that the Pixel 3 XL's two stereo front-facing speakers have drastically different volumes.

Huawei is reviving smartphone leather backs with stitching

One day bootleg pants are all the rage, the next it's considered a faux-pas to wear one and everyone moves to skinny leg pants. A couple of years later, bootleg pants are back in style and you feel like you understand nothing about nothing because you just threw yours in the trash. Just like clothing fashion, smartphone design goes through cycles.

Moto E5 Play Android Go edition announced for Europe and Latin America

Back in April, Motorola announced six phones on the same day - three with the G6 nameplate, and three with the E5 name. Apparently that wasn't enough, though, because Motorola has just announced a Moto E5 Play Android Go edition. And confusingly enough, it doesn't appear to share much with the standard Moto E5 Play.
