OnePlus 5 will soon be discontinued

Slash Gear - 21 Nov 2017 05:05

Apple is still interested inEven though we supposedly hit peak iPhone years ago, no one really bothered to tell Apple. On the contrary, Apple continues to spend billions on R&D every year, and the company in recent years has... shown a considerable interest in developing next-gen display technologies. Even though the iPhone X represents the first iPhone to ship with an OLED display -- a display which may very well be the best OLED-based smartphone display we've ever seen -- Apple is already angling to figure out what comes next. Over the past few years, Apple engineers has been busy exploring Micro LED display technology, hardly a surprise given Apple's obsession with developing thinner, lighter, and more energy efficient displays. Just a few months back, Apple reportedly placed an order for a batch of Micro LED...

The Tesla Semi accelerationTesla last week finally unveiled its long-rumored semi truck, an electric-powered monster that features 500 miles of range on a single charge and, according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, will be far more... economical than a standard diesel truck right from the start. As far as specs are concerned, Tesla boasts that its semi-truck can go from 0-60 MPH in five seconds flat. What's more, the Tesla Semi, when hauling 80,000 pounds, can go from 0-60 MPH in 20 seconds. By way of contrast, your standard diesel truck needs 15 seconds to go from 0-60 MPH and a full minute to go from 0-60 MPH while attached to an 80,000 pound load. "We designed the Tesla truck to be like a bullet," Musk said during last week's unveiling event, which also saw the surprise introduction of a next-gen Roadster. Though...

Face ID has a cool feature youApple has had a string of solid and, at times, impressive iPhone releases over the past few years. Still, it's been quite a while since we've seen a new iPhone model actually stir up some genuine... excitement amongst iPhone users. Sure, camera technology on the iPhone has improved tremendously over the past few years, but the overall look and feel of the iPhone itself has essentially remained unchanged since the iPhone 6 was released more than three years ago. As far as new features are concerned, you might have to go as far back as Touch ID on the iPhone 5s before coming across a new iPhone feature that managed to generate some genuine buzz on its own. The iPhone X, therefore, is a welcome breath of fresh air. Sporting an edgeless OLED display and a new facial recognition system dubbed Face...

Not all banks are ready toThe iPhone X brings over a brand new type of iPhone feature, one that changes the way you interact with the device, facial recognition. But Apple's not doing facial recognition the Android way, which... can be easily hacked with a photo. Instead, Apple built a miniaturized Kinect that analyzes the unique patterns of each face with the help of components that can measure depth. Thus, the 3D facial recognition of the iPhone X is unparalleled when it comes to biometrics-based mobile security. Face ID is the first step towards the kind of seamless, perpetual authentication we're heading to. But it's not good enough for Korean banks. A report from The Korea Herald says that several banks in the county are not ready to fully trust Face ID. The list includes online-only banks Kakao Bank and K-Bank...

In fact, even some of the iPhone X's harshest critics (myself included) have come around to love the controversial "notch" design with the phone's display. Of course, the sleek design and gorgeous display are only half of the equation here. The software side of the user experience is even more important, and the iPhone X delivers there as well.

The Galaxy S9's best new
A report earlier this week said the Galaxy S9 may not come with a 3D facial recognition system similar to Apple's iPhone X, although Samsung is already looking to equip 2018 devices with 3D... sensors. The same report claimed that the Galaxy S9 will not have too many features to differentiate it from the previous generation, although the phone is expected to pack better hardware and deliver a better camera experience.

The revamped Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Trioplan 100mm f2.8 Lens has been around for a little while now, and it will mostly appeal to the photographers that like the look of old vintage lenses. Indeed, these... lenses have different coatings and construction than many modern optics which are designed to be super sterile and sharp. But older lenses have character that takes those modern ideals and slaps them in the face. Personally, that's what I prefer. It's one of the easiest ways to make digital photos look a bit more film-like beyond changing your white balance, but it also gives me a look at portrait clients and collaborators tend to really enjoy. The Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Trioplan 100mm f2.8 Lens is based on the older design but updated for modern cameras.

Deal: Alcatel Idol 5S is downSome great Black Friday smartphone deals. Last year, Alcatel's Idol 4S was one of our top budget smartphone choices, so we were pretty excited when the sequel, the Idol 5S, didn't make too many... changes. What the phone did, though, was get introduced at a much lower price than its predecessor. For $280, users got a 5.2-inch 1080p panel, a Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 2620mAh battery, a 12MP rear camera, and a low-profile version of Android 7.1 Nougat. Now the Idol 5S is down to $199.99 for a limited time -- between Thursday, November 23 at 12:00AM PST and Monday, November 27 at 11:59PM PST -- for Black Friday. That's the same price Amazon sells the ad-supported Prime Exclusive version, but this one is ad-free and compatible with all four U.S. carriers. See at...

Review: Sigma 14mm f1.8 DG HSM Art (Canon EF Mount)

The Phoblographer - 21 Nov 2017 07:00
The Sigma 14mm f1.8 DG HSM Art lens is the fastest aperture wide angle lens that you can currently find on the market, and it's perfect in so many ways for the photographers that do astrophotography... as well as those who photograph interiors in low lighting. The fast f1.8 aperture along with the autofocusing will suit these photographers well. However, the moment that you try to attach a filter to the lens is when things start to go weird. It's very difficult to do despite many lens options on the market finding ways to make this easier. At the same time, photographers can argue about how modern day sensors are so good at getting the image that you may not need those filters. But the same argument can be made for high ISO output--I mean, why would you need an f1.8 lens? Let me restate that:...

Called FriendO, the app lets users compete in "quizzes" to find out who their "real friends" are — and teens are... going crazy for it. SEE ALSO: Here's how much better Snapchat lenses are on the iPhone X Sort of like a non-anonymous version of tbh, which Facebook acquired last month, FriendO has been climbing up the App Store charts over the last month. The app has a number of "categories" that friends can quiz each other on, such as what their favorite foods and sports are, or other personality traits. Users take turns answering questions about each other, and they're then ranked in an in-app leaderboard, which shows their scores.

Samsung accidentally confirmedSamsung's dream is to beat Apple's iPhone, and that's why the Galaxy S8's development codename was "dream." However, no Galaxy S or Galaxy Note device captured the mind of buyers like the iPhone... rival, no matter how hard Samsung tried. But the Korean giant may have an ace up its sleeve, a smartphone unlike anything else available out there, iPhone included. It's called Galaxy X, but not for the reasons you expect. If you think Galaxy X is Samsung's way of copying the iPhone X name scheme that's not actually accurate. We've seen the Galaxy X moniker thrown around back when the iPhone X was still referred to as iPhone 8 in rumors. Because, you see, the Galaxy X is Samsung's first bendable smartphone, a device that's so complicated it might see a limited launch before Samsung is able to...

Tizen 3.0 is now being rolled out to the Gear S3 as part of Samsung's "Value Pack Update", and there's a lot that's included with it.

Why Nielsen's Netflix ratingsNetflix keeps the ratings for its shows a closely guarded secret, primarily to maintain a strategic advantage over competitors. If Amazon, for instance, knew that Netflix's top two shows were, say,... Fuller House and Stranger Things, that would certainly help inform the type of original programming Amazon would seek to develop. What's more, Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos has said that releasing ratings data would be counterproductive because some content is released niche audiences. "There is a very natural inclination to say, 'Relative to this show, this show is a failure.'" Sarandos explained last year. "That puts a lot of creative pressure on the talent." In light of Netflix's secrecy with respect to show ratings, third-party companies have come up with roundabout ways to...

In return for getting the rights to stream NFL games on all platforms, Verizon would give up its existing exclusivity over streaming NFL games on...

That's the gist of the argument the Department of Justice made today, in a... background briefing with reporters and in its press release announcing its lawsuit aimed at stopping the deal. AT&T says that's a bogus argument. But here's the thing: AT&T and Time Warner officials have given the DOJ rhetorical ammunition here, by arguing that merging a content company with a distributor made sense -- because the distribution company's reach was so vast. I know, because every time I've asked a Time Warner or an AT&T exec to explain the rationale for the deal, they point out that AT&T's wireless service reaches the whole country (and so does AT&T's DirecTV service, even though that...

In response, AT&T redoubled its commitment to the deal, pledging to fight the Justice Department in a court case that could span months or more -- and hinge at least in part on President Donald Trump's public opposition to the two companies' plans.
