OnePlus Nord cracks under the pressure of a JerryRigEverything durability test

OnePlus Nord cracks under the pressure of a JerryRigEverything durability test

Our favorite smartphone durability tester, JerryRigEverything on YouTube, is back with another trial by fire of the OnePlus Nord — a phone headed for Eurasia for just €400 starting August 4. The build M.O. looks to be typical for the target price, but how far will it go against the knives, lighter, and hands of one Zack Nelson?

Verizon's OnePlus 8 isn't compatible with regular OnePlus 8 cases

Verizon's OnePlus 8 isn't compatible with regular OnePlus 8 cases

We already knew that the Verizon version of the OnePlus 8 was unique in having mmWave support, when the unlocked version of the phone doesn't, but it turns out that's not the only hardware difference. The Verizon OnePlus 8 also puts its volume rocker in a slightly lower position, apparently to make room for a mmWave antenna. That means you'll need to make sure cases you buy are made specifically for the Verizon version of the phone.

OnePlus's new Sandstone cases for the 8 and 8 Pro are pretty amazing

OnePlus's new Sandstone cases for the 8 and 8 Pro are pretty amazing

Many of our readers are probably debating the merits of the OnePlus 8 Pro, and though we touched on it briefly in our review, there's one major perk to ownership you should probably remember if you decide to buy one. OnePlus's first-party cases are always pretty great, but the new Sandstone cases for the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are, frankly, fantastic. If you buy either phone, don't slum it with a third-party case unless you need some specific feature.

LG G8X up for pre-orders from October 25 for as low as $300, but with an asterisk

LG G8X up for pre-orders from October 25 for as low as $300, but with an asterisk

If LG seems particularly out of sorts this year, you could probably tack a lot of that to its contorted phone release schedule: it announced the V50 alongside the G8, released the G8 in April and then the V50 (with its 5G-ness) in June, then decided to fill its IFA booth in September with a dual-screen remix of the G8, the G8X. Today, we're learning when that phone will go on sale in the United States.

[Update: Samsung statement] Galaxy S10 in-display fingerprint sensor reportedly rendered insecure by cheap accessory

[Update: Samsung statement] Galaxy S10 in-display fingerprint sensor reportedly rendered insecure by cheap accessory

According to a recent report making its rounds on the internet, the in-display fingerprint sensor in the Galaxy S10 doesn't offer much in the way of security if you are using the wrong accessories. For one UK couple using an inexpensive "gel" screen protector (or case, it isn't immediately clear which), their cheap accessory compromised the phone's fingerprint recognition capabilities by allowing any finger to unlock the phone, eliminating the security offered by the in-display reader.

Google quietly removed custom 'My Case' option for Pixels from its store

Google quietly removed custom 'My Case' option for Pixels from its store

When you get a new phone, you almost certainly want to protect it from drops and scuffs by putting it in a case. For most popular devices, you can choose from a sheer infinite amount of options, but most of them are neither individual nor too pretty and only good for what they need to be good at – they shield your device from damage. Google took another approach and added the ability to customize the look of your Pixel phone protector with its "My Case" program. However, coinciding with the launch of the Pixel 3a, the company quietly took away these custom options from the Pixel 3.

After family tragedy, small but unique case manufacturer Cruzerlite is back in business

After family tragedy, small but unique case manufacturer Cruzerlite is back in business

One of my favorite smartphone cases are made by Cruzerlite. The unique Androidified and Bugdroid Circuit patterns are funky, nerdy, and cool at the same time, while also showing off my passion for Android. It also helps that the cases come in multiple colors and are made from sturdy TPU that withstands numerous falls. If my Instagram memory serves me well, I've had a Cruzerlite for my LG G2, two for my LG G3, one for my Nexus 5X (I had a similar fascination with shoes), and more — not counting the Cruzerlite cases I bought for friends and relatives.

ZeroLemon's Pixel 3 and 3 XL 4700mAh battery cases are 30% less ugly, still 100% chunky

ZeroLemon is best known for producing smartphone battery cases, and most of them are absolutely massive.

The company just released its first cases for the Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL, which are fairly chunky but still small compared to other ZeroLemon cases.
