Galaxy Note20 Ultra hands-on video gives us our best look at this behemoth

The same source that brought us photos of the Galaxy Note20 Ultra this week has gone ahead and made a video about it. There really isn't too much more to the video from @jimmyispromo than the pictures he's already posted to Twitter, but it does show a pretty realistic Samsung smartphone with an S Pen existing in human timespace.

Google's 3D animals: 30+ AR critters, list of compatible phones

Putting a tiger in your living room is generally not advisable. Unless it's a virtual one, that is. Thankfully, Google has enough 3D AR tigers to go around, along with dozens of other exotic and not so exotic critters you can snap photos and videos of from anywhere you currently happen to be standing. In this post, we'll show you how to use them, along with other cool 3D objects, using only the power of Google search and a compatible smartphone.

Zenkit To Do wants to be a Wunderlist killer, but comes up short in the end

If you're a Wunderlist user, you're probably aware the app is set to disappear next month. I've personally used it for years and swore by it. I gave Microsoft's in-house replacement a try, but it wasn't good enough for me, so I had to turn to another solution. However, there's a new player on the market that might be the perfect replacement for Wunderlist, called Zenkit To Do. In fact, it looks so similar to Wunderlist that you might actually think it's just an updated version.

Hands on with FilterBox: a comprehensive notification manager app

If you feel like you've spent way too much time swiping on notifications rather than other things, there are some actions you can take to get a better handle on them — sorting apps into different notification channels and occasionally checking on your system's notification log are just a couple. But if you feel like you need a full-on notification manager app, there are quite a few options for you. One of the newest ones is FilterBox, an app from Catching Now, the Chinese developer of clipboard manager Clip Stack.

Hands-on with Google's second Pixel Feature Drop

Google's second Pixel Feature Drop rolled out yesterday together with the March update, and it delivers quite a few tweaks to Google's Pixels. To be honest, it's probably an even bigger deal than the first Android 11 Developer Preview when it comes to user-facing changes — there are a lot of individual improvements present. I've spent the last two days or so mucking about with this latest Pixel experience, and here are my thoughts.

Early Huawei P40 prototype appears in hands-on video showing familiar rear design

Huawei is coming out with its next P-series flagships later this month, even though it still doesn’t have access to Google apps following the US-China trade war. While we already had a pretty good idea what the P40 and P40 Pro will look like based on a few leaks from reliable sources, the former recently made an appearance in a hands-on video.

Galaxy Z Flip first impressions: Folding phones have turned the corner

Samsung's new Galaxy Z Flip, the company's latest folding phone, has been making plenty of waves in recent days — first for being the world's very first glass folding phone, and later for being more delicate than "glass" would imply. I've only had the day to play with the phone following our very brief time with it at Samsung's event, and while I'm trying to reserve my full judgment for later, I have to say: So far, I really like it.

Hands-on: Motorola unveils the Moto G Power and Moto G Stylus with triple cameras and massive batteries

Motorola has pulled back on flagship phones in the last few years, focusing its efforts on the G-series phones. It launched a lot of phones in the G7 generation, and we've been expecting a full Moto G refresh after the company rolled out the G8 Plus in select markets late last year. Today, Motorola has announced a pair of new G phones for everyone, the G Power and G Stylus. Both phones have three cameras and big batteries, but the Stylus trades a little battery capacity for the stylus slot.

Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall hands on: Yet another F2P strategy game ruined by greedy monetization

Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall is an upcoming mobile strategy game that clearly contains a Game of Thrones skin, and it recently entered into a beta testing phase in Australia and New Zealand. Luckily, this beta also appears to be accessible to the US, so I've installed the game so that I can go hands-on with the title to report on exactly what it has to offer.
