OnePlus 2 gets benchmarked in front of the camera

On the eve of its scheduled debut, the unannounced OnePlus 2 made an unscheduled appearance. The upcoming smartphone was put through the paces of the popular AnTuTu benchmark in a couple of videos. OnePlus 2 scored a tad above 49,000 in AnTuTu, which is a significantly lower result that the previously leaked 63,000 score from a few days ago. All in all, it appears that, in line with past reports, there will likely be different hardware variants of the smartphone with 3GB or 4GB of RAM. (more…)

Google Fi will replace bricked Nexus 5X with Moto X4

Some phones age more gracefully than the Nexus 5X. Later in its lifecycle, reports of Nexus 5X devices getting stuck in bootloops began to flood support forums. Many folks with bootlooping LG's last Nexus phone had to get them replaced or refunded. The Nexus 5X's hardware has been well discontinued and refurbished Nexus 5X units are running out.

If you're covered under Project Fi and your Nexus 5X fails, you can pay a $69 deductible and receive a new Moto X4 as a...

Samsung will keep using heat pipes in 2018, 2019 might bring vapor chambers

Samsung adopted heat pipes with the Galaxy S7 and has used them for cooling on S and Note flagships since. This will continue with next year's models according to sources from Samsung's supply chain, which have already started small volume production. Heat pipes add to the price so they are typically used only on flagships. Which works out fine since it's the flagships that pack the most powerful chipsets and need cooling the most. There's an alternative - vapor chambers. They are some of the best ways to transfer heat and are used in high-end GPUs (think 250W). However, they cost even...
