Huawei P10 Review

Huawei is capable of making some great phones and the P10 is no different. The P10 is the first true Huawei phone I’ve used with all their customizations and what not, the only other Huawei phone I’ve tested was the Huawei/Google Nexus 6P but that was technically a Nexus phone and was stock Android.Overall, I really like what Huawei has to offer, but their software is what really irks me the most. Design & HardwareOn first glance, the Huawei P10 has similar stylings to the iPhone 5/5S with its metal and glass design. It feels sort-of premium but you can tell that it’s actually not. The Huawei P10 is fairly thin and it feels nice in the hands surprisingly, Huawei was able to keep the headphone jack while also making the phone thin.Just like the iPhone, the P10 comes in two sizes, the standard 5.1-inch P10 and the 5.5-inch P10 Plus. I got to test out the standard P10. The screen is Full HD with 2.5D glass, also on the front, is the phone’s fingerprint sensor. The sensor works well bu…

Essential Phone Review

The Essential Phone is probably the most interesting phone I’ve used in a while. It’s the first phone (and product) to come out of Andy Rubin’s (the “father of Android”) new company, Essential but the phone isn’t anything that’s overtly over-the-top.Sure it might have a beautiful display with a 19:10 aspect ratio but other Android flagship phones have similar displays but with an 18:9 aspect ratio. I feel like the Essential Phone is missing something but over the ten or so days I’ve used the device, I still can’t put my finger on it. Design & HardwareThe Essential Phone’s body is made from Corning Gorilla Glass combined with titanium and ceramic. The 5.7-inch “Full Display” is beautiful and well-lit, colours are accurate and it takes a bit getting used to the front-facing camera notch. The screen has a 19:10 aspect ratio and resolution of 2560 x 1312.It’s definitely a really nice phone to look and hold in your hands. It feels like you’re just holding a solid piece of metal and glas…

Master Chief riding a scorpion is hidden inside the Xbox One X

Microsoft has hidden a small easter egg within the Xbox One X. It’s Master Chief riding on top of a scorpion.The scorpion is a subtle reference to when the Xbox One X was referred to as Project Scorpio. The easter egg can be found on the console’s circuit board, so you’ll have to open up your Xbox One X to be able to see it (but that will probably void your warranty).You can see the full teardown of the Xbox One X here on Unocero’s YouTube channel.Source: Unocero via The Verge
