Doom and Doom II for Android get WAD support, 60FPS mode, and more

Bethesda ported the first two Doom games to Android (and consoles, and PCs) late last year, as part of the 25th anniversary of the franchise. The re-release had a rocky start, especially with a required online login, but that and other bugs have been ironed out. Now the ports are getting feature updates on all platforms, including Android.

Just like any year, this year's CES has focused quite a bit on television sets. And just like any (recent) year, this year brings us a whole slew of new Android TV products.

The White Door is a stylish point-and-click adventure game from the creators of the Cube Escape series

Rusty Lake is a developer best known for its Cube Escape and Rusty Lake series of point-and-click adventure games, though often, these titles offer a dark theme, which may not appeal to everyone. This is precisely why The White Door has drawn my attention. Much like its predecessors, it too is a point-and-click adventure game, but this time around the story and graphics are the primary focus, which makes this a game that's a little easier to pick up and play thanks to its streamlined split-screen gameplay that revolves around the title's mysterious narrative.

Samsung T7 Touch portable SSD gets faster and more secure with fingerprint scanner

Samsung’s T series of external SSDs have made a name for themselves owing to the compact, pocketable design and the USB-C interface. The last-gen T5 wasn’t the fastest SSD around with transfer speeds topping at 540MB/s, but its rather uncompromising overall package garnered general approval. Its follow-up—the T7 Touch—debuted at this year’s CES sporting a fancy fingerprint reader for hardware-based security and, of course, faster transfer rates.

Dead Cells is coming to Android after all (Update: Q3 2020)

In October of last year, I broke the news that Dead Cells had popped up on the Play Store as a pre-registration listing, but the title was soon delisted. Sadly there was no way to know if that listing was a mistake, or if someone had simply pulled the trigger a little early. Well, there is no more need to guess. Motion Twin has announced a partnership with Playdigious to bring Dead Cells to mobile. The title is scheduled to be released on iOS sometime this summer, and an Android version "will come later."

Quibi is a new streaming service with short films that can be viewed in portrait or landscape

Most of the professionally produced video you watch is filmed for a TV or movie screen—it's landscape. That makes sense, of course, because most screens don't rotate to portrait mode, that new Samsung spinning TV notwithstanding. However, your phone does rotate, and a new streaming service called Quibi wants to take advantage of that. Quibi will offer premium video content that you can watch in either portrait or landscape, and you can switch back and forth whenever you want.

Google announces scheduled actions for Assistant, plus a handful of other new features

As part of its CES announcements, Google is taking the wraps off a bunch of new and upcoming Assistant functionality, like the ability to schedule actions, a new "Read It" command that dictates text content like news in a more natural voice, plus new Smart Display features like sticky notes and speed dial. While much of it won't land until a nebulous date "later this year," it gives us a peek at what to expect from the Assistant in 2020, and a reference for when Google re-announces half of it as new later once it's been in silent public testing for a couple months.

The OnePlus Concept One is very, very orange

When OnePlus announced it would unveil a concept smartphone at CES this week, speculation ran rampant. Could it be a foldable? A first look at the OnePlus 8? Some new form factor or extreme design exploration? Well, then we learned it was actually... none of those things. It was a phone wrapped in leather with disappearing camera lenses. I took a quick look at the Concept One here in Las Vegas yesterday, and I can confirm that's what we got. Also, that it is very, very orange.

It is a bit puzzling at first blush; why is OnePlus making so much noise about a phone which you'll never be able to buy and which features a technology which, to be blunt about it, no one was asking for?

Insta360 One R is a modular 360 and action cam with IPX8 waterproofing, USB-C, and a 1-inch Leica sensor

In the span of a few years, Insta360 has made itself a name in the 360 camera space thanks to an excellent balance between specs, image and video quality, funky additional features, and price. After a small detour with the Insta360 GO, the company is now back with its most ambitious 360 and action cam to date, the One R.
