No worries, I get where you’re coming from. I just wanted to chime in on some of the reactions. Quite often, the most interesting gadgets are the ones people don’t buy. Thanks for reading, I’m always down to respond to thoughtful comments.
That’s totally fair, and to your point, I really can’t recommend that anyone buy this phone. However, sometimes a device has a feature or an idea that transcends the norm and could have an impact on future trends. That is why I wanted to do a review for the Find X, to highlight the good, the bad, and the ugly.
At first it looked like the “XS” was just an X next to a lower case S. But when the XR was announced, it became apparent that Apple actually uses capital letters and an annoying superscript S and R.
We should be getting a SliceCharge in for review, so check back soon for more info.
She might have been trying something new for this show, but Alive Eve’s normal American accent is pretty spot on, as she lived in LA for a few years as a kid.
I’m sure there are things you care about that other people may not find that interesting. But to give you an honest answer:
I’m sad to say that on the next batch of Yogas, the tangerine is gone.
If you’re looking to buy a Wear OS watch, wait. Qualcomm is holding a big smartwatch even in early September that could mean big improvements for Wear OS devices.
Nikon claims there is zero degradation when using the FTZ adapter
Personally, I don’t really care about single card slot either, though I’m not a pro photog, and I totally understand why not having two would be a big deal for them.
Based on some other rumors, it seems the Pixel 3 will be the first Google phone to have wireless charging. But I really wouldn’t hold out for a microSD card slot.
This may be the most convincing argument I’ve seen for the Bixby speaker, ahem, Galaxy Home yet.
I didn’t discuss it much because the speaker on the Smart Display is fine. It’s not really a pro or a con. It does its job and is on par with a regular Google Home, aside from maybe being a touch louder. You’re buying this thing for the display and the platform behind it.
My apologies, the standard Pixel 2 does have an OLED screen, thanks for the catch.
Nope, the fingerprint sensor in back is just that. LG got rid of the built-in button.
The battery size is definitely concerning, 3,500 mAh is basically the minimum for premium phones this size right now. Check back for more info after I get some more time to test it out.
I think the reason why they didn’t show the loss of the Power Stone on Xandar is to set up for Captain Marvel. They’ll use that event to introduce Captain Marvel, while also setting up for Avengers 4.
Maybe so, but that’s an awful lot of Google branding the company has plastered on there.
Oh, I’m totally with you. I want phone makers to blow out the back of devices with everything they can cram in. Computational photography and putting multiple lenses to use at the same time is where smartphone cameras are going.
It is indeed very close to stock Android, with some tweaks on the wallpaper and default widgets. Sony seems to be leaning more heavily into its work with using AOSP, though until the device is ready for full production, it’s hard to say for sure.
