The Essential Phone sort of came out of the woodwork and while it hasn’t made a huge splash with mainstream users just yet, it’s still a pretty interesting device. We got our first hint that something was coming way back in March when Android founder Andy Rubin teased a new phone on his Twitter account. And boy, did the internet go crazy. Not only was it taking the bezel-less design to a new level, but it looked cool as hell, too. Things were decidedly less fun from that point forward since Essential has faced criticism for...

Google’s new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL offer a lot of features but as with any new smartphone, it’s not without its issues. Complaints of a less vibrant display than the previous generation Pixel have prompted Google to state that it may add more color options for users in a future update. The company said it targeted a more neutral and realistic panel this time around, rather than the heavy saturation usually associated with OLED displays.

However, those haven’t been the only complaints levelled at the Pixel 2 XL’s display. A few...

It seems a lot of folks are wondering why they’re not seeing portrait mode on the Google Pixel 2 front-facing camera. After posting a couple photos of the Pixel 2 on social media yesterday, I got asked a lot if the selfie portrait feature was working for me. It wasn’t. But it is now. Let me explain (don’t tell Gary I used his line).

How to enable selfie portrait mode on the Pixel 2

The issue is simple: the version of the Google Camera app shipping on the Pixel 2 is not the version with selfie portrait mode enabled.

For whatever reason not everyone is getting the new version out of the...

The Moto X4 revives the Moto X name but it’s no longer the Moto X we once knew. It now comes in the form of an Android One device and it joins Google’s short list of Project Fi compatible devices. If we’re being perfectly honest here, the only thing the Moto X4 shares in common with the Moto X’s of yesteryears is it’s name. Otherwise, this is a completely different device with a new direction. Being under the Android One program, the X4 becomes a great affordable entry point into Google’s Project Fi but can the rest of the phone live up expectations? Find out in our full review!

Design

Unlike previous Moto Xs that were highly customizable with different backing...

The October security update has been getting some serious headlines this month. We first told you about a week ago that it was fixing some Bluetooth issues in Pixel devices. These Bluetooth issues had persisted since the phone was first launched and frustrated owners. Unfortunately, some Pixel XL owners couldn’t even install the thing. There were...

An invisible menu button was recently discovered on the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The button, housed at the far right of the navigation bar, opens the hamburger (3 dots) menu of the screen its on. Despite being a fun Easter Egg for some folks, Google has now confirmed that to CNET that this feature is a bug that will be patched out in future.

The button works only on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, not the originals, and only in certain places (Settings, Calculator, Messages, Docs, among others). It also doesn’t do anything that you couldn’t do...

Samsung has taken the wraps off the rugged Galaxy Tab Active 2 tablet that’s aimed at business users. The device, which leaked a few days ago, is expected to be extremely durable thanks to its MIL-STD-810 certification and should survive severe pressure, temperatures, environments, vibration, and drops. It’s also IP68 rated for protection against water as well as dust.

The device comes with an 8-inch display with a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels and is powered by the Exynos 7870 chipset. It has 3 GB of RAM and only 16 GB of storage, but you have the option of expanding it for an additional 256 GB via a...
