Another step toward the perfect smartphone

When I say “the perfect smartphone” I of course mean the four-sided screen. That is the dream of the panel you hold in your hand without any sign of interruption – logos, buttons, or anything in-between. That dream is one step closer to reality now that phones are coming with a feature that’s going live thanks to a group called Goodix.

The folks at Goodix create several sorts of products, the most important of these being their “Innovative Biometric Solutions.” Most important to our subject matter today, that is to say. They’ve made clear over the past few weeks that they’re the reason why several early adopter manufacturers were able to bring an in-display fingerprint sensor to the market before anyone else.

Goodix created what they call “Goodix’s Optical IN-DISPLAY FINGERPRINT SENSOR.” They’ve branded it in all caps like that because they’re VERY PROUD OF THEIR AWESOME NEW TECHNOLOGY. They’ve delivered this tech this week to the Porsche Design Huawe

Why PUBG on Android is better than Fortnite on iPhone

Android users rejoice, for the gaming experience in PUBG mobile is better than that of Fortnite mobile. This should quite obviously be understood as an entirely subjective sort of declaration, but my reasons are basic and, I believe, pretty universal. When I play Fortnite mobile, I die right away, and when I play PUBG mobile, I don’t die nearly quite so quick.

I Die

The intricacies of the game in Fortnite for iOS are encouraging. This is easily one of the most involved and awesome online games created for the mobile platform. Those gamers given the opportunity to play Fortnite mobile via invite are lucky, because this game is incredible. But there’s a big problem with this game, for me: I die.

I die right away, and I die pitifully. I get crushed pitifully early, and I rarely find the time to loot enough to put up a decent defense. This game is mobile, sure, but for me it’s too quick. Games on smartphones and ta

Microsoft Edge launches support for iPad and Android tablets

Google Play Services start blocking uncertified Android devices

The Android platform is open source (though more like open source dump) and there’s no way to close that door anymore. Google, however, has found a way around it through its oh so essential Google Play apps and services. While OEMs had to comply with Google’s rules and certification requirements to officially ship with these, some have found ways around that, usually by side-loading GApps, as the bundle is called, themselves or telling users how to do so. Now it seems that Google is closing the door on that method but users of custom ROMs need not be too worried because Google is surprisingly giving them a special pass.

Google Play Services (sometimes called Google Mobile Services) is one of the more controversial aspects of the Android platform. Very few will deny how these apps and services are critical to providing a full Android experience. Google Play, however, is proprietary and therefore doesn’t ship with the open source Android code (AOSP). No one but Google has the le

Foldable devices: why we’re excited and cautiously optimistic

So everyone’s going into foldable phones, even Apple it seems. But while Apple’s take isn’t due until 2020, or maybe even until much later, the news will undoubtedly make you wonder what the fuss is all about. And if the only examples of foldable phones you’ve seen are the ZTE Axon M and the even older Kyocera Echo, you will definitely be puzzled at the excitement it’s generating. Here are some of the reason why foldable phones and tablets are really the future and why you shouldn’t be holding your breath just yet.

Expanding views, maximizing space

Fold it any other way, foldable phones and tablets is really about the screen real estate. A phone that unfolds into a tablet means you have double the screen space. On the other hand, a phone that folds down to half its size means you need less space to store your phone. Tablets might even be able to fold out into a bigger canvas.
