When you think of Creative Labs, the first thing you think of is sound. Creative Labs first rose in popularity with its Sound Blaster sound cards for PCs. Since then Creative has continued to lead the charge in innovative sound products including personal sound devices. Just in time for the holiday season, Creative has two new products that are worth paying attention to.

The latest offerings from Creative are the Metallix Portable Mini Speaker and the Outlier ONE Wireless In-Ear Headphones, both of which offer compelling features at rock-bottom prices.

Let’s take a closer look at what each product brings to the table.

As processors get faster and companies throw more RAM into each and every phone, the differences between all of these devices become so much smaller. Nowhere is this more obvious than with performance, as the specs list of almost all flagships in 2017 reads very similar, and usually entails the Snapdragon 835 processor (which powers 8 devices on our list), with between 4GB and 8GB of RAM.

In order to quantify these decreasing differences, we’ve turned to a series of industry-recognized benchmarks to help us determine which phone has the best performance. While some devices are known to cheat the benchmark system, the differences between devices powered by the same processing package are...

Samsung has long-since been rumored to be releasing a foldable smartphone, but that might not be the only innovative handset it has in the works: the South Korean giant may also be developing on a device with a double-sided display.

This speculation arrives from LetsGoDigital (via The Korea Herald), who recently picked up a Samsung Display patent application which revealed a device with such a design. This was originally submitted in 2015 in...

The Google Play Store’s “installs” icon isn’t just there to help users choose apps: it can also clue us in to the often secretive territory of smartphone sales. Where apps are exclusive to a certain device, we can use the app’s install figure as an approximation of how many of those phones are in operation — something we saw in effect earlier this year with respect to Google Pixel sales.

Now, thanks to a post on Reddit (via...

Japan’s sole entry in the final stretch of Google’s Lunar XPrize got a fresh tankful of rocket fuel today with its announcement of US$90 million in funding.

The series A investment helps the Hakuto moon rover get into space before Google’s March 31, 2018, deadline, as well as build a viable private space business once the madcap contest is over.

OnePlus has released the OxygenOS 4.5.15 OTA for the OnePlus 5. As always, the update was announced over at the OnePlus forums, alongside an overview of its improvements.

GPS improvements are among the fixes this time. Users have complained about GPS drifting then losing its lock completely so hopefully, this patch can sort it out. The update is also fixing an issue where users were unable to set a customized alarm ringtone. The bug causing users to be unable to share emoji from Bitmoji has been squashed, as well....
