Behold, the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10!

Porsche Design and Huawei‘s latest partnership makes the iPhone X look positively affordable. Last year we got the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 9, a rebadged version of the Mate 9 Pro, with a fancy new paint job, a weird custom theme, and a ludicrous 256GB of internal storage. Oh, and a 1500 price tag. This year, the Porsche Design partnership continues, and so does the astronomical pricing of the co-branded handsets. The Porsche Design

T-Mobile and Sprint merger teased once again, no assets expected to be sold

T-Mobile and Sprint‘s decision to not sell any assets could cause for pushback from U.S. regulators. Although there have been murmurings of a Sprint and T-Mobile merger for ages now, recent reports indicate that we might actually see a deal between the fourth and third largest U.S. carriers announced by the end of October. This was first suggested back on October 6, and another report has popped up to reiterate this point. According to in

Huawei Mate 10/10 Pro: Hands-on with the "Intelligent Machine"

In some ways, the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro are familiar offerings from smartphone giant Huawei. They offer high-capacity batteries, Leica-branded cameras, and a user interface long on features (and short on restraint). But the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro also bring more genuinely exciting stuff to the table than any of their forebears. They‘re powered by the Kirin 970 SoC, whose "Neural Network Processing Unit" promises to help the

Huawei Mate 10 + Mate 10 Pro hands-on preview

Huawei‘s latest Oreo-powered flagship phones combine AI smarts with dual f/1.6 cameras and, of course, enormous batteries. If you look at the heritage of the Huawei Mate series, going all the way back to 2013‘s Ascend Mate one thing stands out: These are big, beastly, sturdy phones. Unapologetically gigantic screens are paired with equally hefty batteries, signifying a phone that means business. It‘s a formula that‘s se

Have you noticed any lag on the LG V30?

One 800 phone with extra lag, please. In our initial review of the LG V30, we came away from the phone feeling quite impressed. Our own Alex Dobie praised the V30 for its sleek design, great cameras, high-quality DAC, and buttery smooth performance. However, now that the V30 is available to purchase in the U.S. and customers are starting to get hands-on time with the phone, some conflicting thoughts are starting to pop up. Although most every

Sony‘s Xperia XZ1 gets most everything right

I‘m excited about a Sony phone, but that shouldn‘t surprise you. There are so many phones launching this quarter, it‘s difficult to keep up. In the U.S., Sony‘s phones generally get announced and go on sale with little fanfare, largely because they lack carrier backing. This is true of the Xperia XZ1, which is available on Amazon right now for 650, and its smaller Xperia XZ1 Compact counterpart. Here in Canada, things

End of the headphone jack, rise of the audiophile

The end of the headphone jack has spurred an interest in high-quality audio components, but where does the madness stop? Everything I do revolves around music. It‘s always been this way - as a kid I would sit on the floor in my carpeted living room creating hours of mix tapes from my father‘s classic rock cassettes, returning to my bed to close my eyes and exist between two worlds. As a teenager, I spent nearly all of my money on

Daydream Audio: What to do when there‘s no headphone jack

Don‘t panic at the lack of a headphone jack! The Pixel 2 was revealed alongside the newest iteration of Google‘s Daydream View headset, and while this phone is amazing for VR it is rather conspicuously missing something. That something is, of course, a headphone jack. This isn‘t the first Daydream-ready phone with no headphone jack, but it is certainly the most popular.
