dash charge is one our favorite features on the oneplus phones, but the company has now trademarked warp charge. the simplest explanation is that oneplus ran into some trademark issues in the eu because the name clashes with the bragi dash (wireless headphones, nothing like a charger, but what do we know). the trademark application for the warp charge covers chargers and cables for phones, but doesn't go into specifics like power. we bring it up only because super vooc made its debut with the oppo find x lamborghini edition and dash charge is a rebranding of vooc. the current dash...

over the last two weekends, we've reflected upon the highlights that 2018 has brought us so far in wearables and looked forward to the major up'n'coming releases. for some, the tech we wear on our wrists is a series of compromises. for example, those who want a great color display with all week battery life will currently be left wanting, while for those who want to track their sleep are unable to do so when they have to charge their watch every night. today's wearables have only been improved by their ability to work in conjunction with our smartphones, hence why we have an interest in...

it's time to tally the votes from last week's poll results about the ideal secondary eras on the back. what you prefer to have on your modern smartphones and how the trend has changed over the course of the year since we asked the same question last. we see a close battle between two sensors, but this time around, monochrome has fallen out of fashion. it's clear that oems can achieve excellent low-light performance without needing a monochrome sensor so it was understandably lost popularity. this probably also explains why the "a nced sensor" option was so popular. even the...
