OnePlus X puts design at the forefront for US$249

Posted: 29 Oct 2015 03:02 PM PDT


OnePlus' latest handset takes a new approach for the OEM, one which favours design at an incredibly low price, but don't think there's nothing special under the hood of the OnePlus X.

In its brief existence, OnePlus has been all about the specs and their first two efforts were each aimed to eliminate their flagship competitors by being set at a competitive price. OnePlus One had mass acceptance as being a "flagship killer" as OnePlus described it, while their follow-up OnePlus 2 lost some of that effect when the company marketed it as being a year ahead of its time, while lacking some features most customers naturally expect these days.

OnePlus already had a new device in the pipeline when ...

Apple's Second Ever Android App Is All About The Music (As Long As You Play It On The Beats Pill+ Speaker)

Posted: 29 Oct 2015 02:44 PM PDT

image (11)Nope, Apple Music still isn't available on Android (though it's being actively tested). Instead, the second Android app that Cupertino has officially published is in support of the hardware half of its Beats acquisition. It's a companion and pairing app for the Beats Pill+, the latest revision of Beats' portable Bluetooth speaker. That's it. That's all. There isn't any more.

To be fair, it seems like a perfectly serviceable manager app, and a lot less condescending than Apple's first entry on the Play Store.

Sprint unveils new $20 unlimited data plan that only offers 1GB of high-speed data

Posted: 29 Oct 2015 01:31 PM PDT

"Sprint beats all national carriers with unlimited data for $20/month." That's the headline Sprint is using for this announcement, but the wording "unlimited data" is quite a stretch. The plan does indeed offer unlimited data, but only 1GB of that will be LTE. The rest will be 2G data, which we all know sucks.

Though many carriers do this and have done this for years, it's still purposefully misleading for customers who don't read the fine print. If you see this deal, or any like it, remember to read the fine print and ignore it if you need significant amounts of data.

iFixit gives Nexus 6P a repairability score of 2 out of 10

Posted: 29 Oct 2015 01:11 PM PDT

The Nexus 6P is not an easy phone to repair, according to iFixit. The site gave the device a score of 2 out of 10 for repairability after tearing it apart and seeing what's inside. Hint: it's a lot of glue.

To remove the screws holding the metal body together you have to remove pieces that are glued on, including the camera lens cover. The display is also held on by glue and is extremely hard to replace. Apparently replacing it without shattering it is a difficult task, and that's the most common repair.

While it's a shame that repairing this device is so difficult, most people don't opt to repair their devices anyway. Make sure you get the Nexus Protect plan and keep your phone safe!

OnePlus X makes its official debut with 5-inch display, Snapdragon 801, and $249 price tag

Posted: 29 Oct 2015 11:45 AM PDT

The OnePlus family grew again today with the arrival of the OnePlus X, a new Android phone that's small in both size and cost.

OnePlus is really talking up the build quality of the OnePlus X, which includes two slabs of black glass with a metal frame in between them. That's on the Onyx version, anyway. There's also a Ceramic model that OnePlus says takes 25 days to make because of a process that involves baking ceramic, cooling it, and polishing it. Both models also include a metal frame with several microcuts that give it a texture.

In terms of specs, the OnePlus X touts a 5-inch 1920×1080 AMOLED display that runs Android 5.1.1 beneath OnePlus's custom OxygenOS user interface. There's a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor paired with 3GB of RAM and a 2525mAh battery powering the X, and there's also dual SIM support, 16GB of storage and a microSD slot packed inside. The OnePlus X's camera arsenal includes a 13-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel front-facing shooter.

OnePlus X Onyx

OnePlus X Onyx

Moving on to availability, yes, the OnePlus X will require an invite to purchase. The good news is that that requirement will only be in place during the month of November, and OnePlus says that it's already sent out 15,000 invites to buy the X. After November, the OnePlus X will be available through open sales each week, and once production can keep up with demand, it'll be available totally invite-free.

The Onyx OnePlus X will launch in Europe on November 5 at a price of €269, and it'll arrive in the US on November 19 for $249. The Ceramic model will only be available in Europe and India for €369, and you'll need a Ceramic-specific invite to get one. What's more, OnePlus says that it's only making 10,000 Ceramic units, so you'll have to put in work to snag one.

With the OnePlus X, OnePlus set out to make a small phone that can easily be used with one hand and has a respectable feature set. With its 5-inch screen, the X should be fairly easy to use one-handed for most folks, and its spec list is pretty decent for the price.

What do you think of the OnePlus X?

The Guardian reports that Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment (made up mostly of ex-Call of Duty developers) and Nexon (a developer that focuses on full-sized PC games that use the freemium model) will both invest in newbie mobile developer Particle City, with the aim to create "several mobile games based on Titanfall."

The OnePlus X Is Official

Posted: 29 Oct 2015 09:56 AM PDT

OnePlus X - 2

As expected, OnePlus announced their new budget device today, the OnePlus X.  There wasn't really too much new to learn about the device as it had made its way through the rumour mills more than a few times but lets take a look at the spec sheet anyway:

  • 5″ 1080p AMOLED Display
  • 2.3 GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 801 Processor
  • 3GB RAM
  • 16 GB Expandable Storage
  • 13MP Camera
  • 8MP Front Facing Camera
  • 2525 mAh Battery
  • Dual-SIM Support

The specs are pretty decent for a budget device but it does lack some of the more "premium" features such as a fingerprint reader and USB Type-C port.  And like its sibling, the OnePlus 2, the OnePlus X lacks NFC, quick charge, and wireless charging.

In terms of design, the OnePlus X is a pretty far departure from the other OnePlus devices.  Despite being the budget option, I'd say that the OnePlus X probably carriers the most premium look of the three devices.  It features a beautiful brushed aluminum metal frame with chamfered edges that is sandwiched between the display on the front and either glass or ceramic on the back.  Given the new material options on the back, the back is non removable but OnePlus is still bringing the customizability in the form of textured cases.

OnePlus X - 1

In terms of pricing, the OnePlus X will come in at a pretty decent $329.  Yeah, it's a tad high for a budget device but our dollar is still pretty bad. For comparison sake, thee US pricing is a pretty sweet $249.  The device will begin selling on November 5th but sadly OnePlus has implemented the invite system once again.  So if you're hoping to grab this device you'll want to head over to their site asap to get your name on the list.

Nintendo’s First Mobile Game Isn’t Quite What We Hoped For…

Posted: 29 Oct 2015 09:32 AM PDT



Well Nintendo's first mobile game has been officially announced but I don't think it's what anyone thought it would be.  The game is called Miitomo and features Nintendo's Mii characters.  The game, if you can call it that, allows users to create their own character and interact with other users avatars.  To me, it seems much more like a fancy communication application than a game but it is what it is I suppose.

The game is slated to release in March 2016 and will adopt the freemium model.  In other words, the game is free to play but users will have to shell out money for special in game add ons.

Again, not what many of us had hoped for but it's still exciting to see Nintendo enter the smartphone gaming realm.

The Moto X Force is a rebranded DROID Turbo 2 for international markets

Posted: 29 Oct 2015 08:26 AM PDT

A couple of days ago, Motorola and Verizon officially debuted the DROID Turbo 2, the next high-end smartphone to take up the DROID branding. It packs in quite a few impressive specs along with a display that Motorola calls "shatterproof." Now that device is coming to international markets, too.

In what the manufacturer is dubbing the "#ShortestPressAnnouncementEver," the Moto X Force has been debuted by way of a quick YouTube video showing the device being dropped on a hard surface. As one can expect from a device marketed as shatterproof, the display appears to be fine after picking it up. The outcome was much worse for Apple's iPhone 6s and Samsung's Galaxy S6.

The Moto X Force is exactly the same phone as the DROID Turbo 2, meaning it features a 5.4-inch QHD display, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor under the hood, 3GB of RAM, 32GB and 64GB variants, a battery measured in at 3760mAh, and a 21-megapixel camera on the back. There's a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, and it's running Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box, but Android 6.0 Marshmallow is coming down the line.

There wasn't any mention of an exact launch date or pricing, but Motorola does say that the device will launch in Latin America, APAC and EMEA beginning sometime in November.

HTC adding Verizon support to the unlocked HTC One A9 in December

Posted: 29 Oct 2015 06:54 AM PDT

No, Verizon still isn't planning on selling the HTC One A9, but that doesn't mean that Verizon's customers will not be able to buy the HTC One A9 and use it on their favorite network. Thanks to a software update, the unlocked HTC One A9 which is being sold on htc.com will soon feature support for Verizon's LTE network. You will need to wait until December for the software update to arrive, but if you are planning on picking up the HTC One A9 to use on Verizon, we suggest you do in soon. The $399.99 promotion price for the phone is set to expire on November 7, bumping the price up to the standard $499.99 price.

It's nice to know that HTC is working on a software update to ensure that the HTC One A9 works on Verizon, but HTC really needs to get Verizon to carry the phone and offer it directly to its customers if it truly wants the One A9 to be a success in the US market. The phone itself may not have the specs it needs to compete directly with other flagship Android phones, but it looks like HTC may actually be willing to spend a bit of money to promote the phone. If that's the case, the HTC One A9 may actually sell better than HTC's flagship One M9.

Lumsing Grand A1 battery charger review [coupon code]

Posted: 29 Oct 2015 06:54 AM PDT

External battery packs can be your best friend. They're there for you in a pinch, they can give you that little pick-me-up you need to get you through the rest of they, and they don't even ask for much in return. All they need is to be plugged into the wall or your computer when you don't need them. And if you can do that, and remember to bring the battery pack with you, they're the most handy accessory you can have for your mobile devices.

We were given the opportunity to review a couple of the Lumsing Grand A1 series battery chargers. This series of chargers come in battery capacities: 6,700, 10,050, and 13,400mAh. Lumsing claims that the three different battery capacities will reach full charge in 4, 6, and 8 hours, respectively. They also come in three different colors: Silver with blue button and end caps, gold with white, and black with orange.

Beyond the capacity and colors, the series have mostly the same features. Those include LG batteries, some sort of drop protection, and fast charging technology that provides up to 2.4 amps per port or 3 amps overall (if more than one port) at a claimed 90% efficiency. So if you do the math, that's about 1200mAhs from the big battery to charge your phone over and over and over. They also have LED charge indicators to let you know how fully charged the pack is when charging or discharging. To see the amount of charge your pack has, you push the button and the LEDs will light up. Additionally, the press of the button will turn on the packs to start the charge of your device.

As with most power banks these days, the Lumsing chargers have an "intelligent USB output that can detect charging mode of different digital devices and switch to the right mode for full speed charging." The batteries are CE FCC certified and come with an 18-month warranty. One other tidbit of information for you is that the batteries have an LED flashlight, which isn't unheard of with battery packs, but it's an interesting addition. I heard California is supposed to have a wicked El NiƱo Grande winter this year, and I'll be glad to have some extra flashlights that are basically going to always be charged for emergency purposes.

We were sent the 13,400mAh pack in black and orange and the 6,700mAh pack in silver and blue. I've had them around for a couple of weeks and even brought them on a trip to Europe. I'll be comparing them to some recently reviewed TYLT battery packs I have laying around (and actually use a lot).

IMG_0201 IMG_0203 IMG_0204 IMG_0206 IMG_0208 IMG_0199 IMG_0209 IMG_0210 IMG_0211 IMG_0212

What I like

  • The size. These batteries are much more compact than the TYLT battery packs. For example, the TYLT ENERGI 10K (10,400mAh) battery pack measures 3.15 x 4.72 x 0.95 inches, while the Lumsing 13,400mAh pack is about 3.88 x 3.06 x 0.63 inches. Lumsing's 10,050mAh battery is even smaller.
  • The build. The cases are mostly aluminum, and they look and feel nice.
  • The prices. These Lumsing battery packs are competitively priced and blow the TYLT packs out of the water in regard to pricing. From low to high battery capacities, the prices are $16.99, $21.99, and $26.99. And you can use Amazon coupon code D4MEC6KV to get $4.50 off of the 13,400mAh battery until November 4.

What I don't like

  • Number of USB ports (small beef). These are huge capacity battery packs with only 1 or 2 (the smaller pack only has 1) USB ports to charge your devices.  More would be convenient.
  • No built-in cables (small beef). It's convenient that you can plug whatever USB cable into the battery packs and charge whatever mobile device you need to, but then you also need to carry around cables. Built-in USB cables can be super convenient.
  • No pass-through charging (big beef). This is my biggest beef with these chargers. Pass through charging allows you to charge your devices while you also charge your battery packs. I love this feature when I travel with the TYLT battery packs because I only need to bring one wall adapter and I can charge multiple devices overnight and wake up with them all charged as well as a charged battery pack. Unfortunately, if you want to charge a Lumsing Grand AI pack and your phone at the same time, they need to be charged separately.

In short, these battery packs are extremely competitively priced for their high capacities and small sizes. They've worked brilliantly for me. The sizes are great for travel and because the capacities are high, they will last several phone charges. Even though they don't support pass-through charging, I've been leaving them plugged into a spare outlet in the car so they'll always be ready to go when I need them. The Lumsing Grand A1 battery packs can be picked up via Amazon. We also currently have an Amazon coupon code — D4MEC6KV — for the 13,400mAh Grand A1 pack so you can pick it up for $22.49 until November 4.

How do you feel about these Lumsing Battery packs? How do you feel about these prices for what you get? Do you have a nicely priced battery pack that you think is awesome? Have any questions about the Lumsing packs? Let us know your thoughts by commenting below.
