US carriers forgiving late payments, bolstering benefits during coronavirus fallout

US carriers forgiving late payments, bolstering benefits during coronavirus fallout

Cellular carriers have earned many negative impressions over the years for poor billing practices, unfair contracts, and some dubious attempts to insert themselves where they might not belong; but there’s no denying that they have a good track record for giving a little back in times of crisis. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, carriers in the U.S. have committed to not terminate customers’ lines and provide more data and cheaper plans to those who need them. On March 13, FCC chairman Ajit Pai released a letter encouraging providers of broadband and telephone services to join the Keep Americans Connected...

Smartphone-optimized streaming service Quibi launches today

Smartphone-optimized streaming service Quibi launches today

We’ve got Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and myriad other streaming video options. Is there room for another competitor? Hollywood seems to think so, and that’s why Quibi is launching today. Quibi focuses on quick episodes optimized for phones, and you can give it a shot for free. Quibi’s selling point is that you can watch the videos in either landscape or portrait orientation thanks to its “sidecar” video format. You can switch back and forth whenever you want, and the episodes are less than 10 minutes long—perfect for all those dang Gen Z-ers with their short attention spans. The service, which...

The Samsung Galaxy S10 and Note10 get a slew of S20 software features (Update: US rollout, NavStar fix)

The Samsung Galaxy S10 and Note10 get a slew of S20 software features (Update: US rollout, NavStar fix)

The Galaxy S20 phones may be Samsung’s new flagships, but since the company continues selling the S10 line alongside it, it keeps doing a stellar job at providing software updates: The Korean manufacturer is beginning to roll out a big update to last year’s series, giving it a ton of One UI 2.1 features from the Galaxy S20, most notably in the photography department. The Note10 is benefitting from the same treatment. Other than new One UI 2.1 capabilities, the update elevates the security patch level to the one from April, beating even Google’s Pixel line to it. It measures...

Get a dual-SIM Galaxy S20 for $700, $300 less than the US model (Updated)

Get a dual-SIM Galaxy S20 for $700, $300 less than the US model (Updated)

The Galaxy S20 series is quite expensive, with even the lowest-end model costing $1,000 in the United States. If you’re not picky about cellular reception, the dual-SIM S20+ is just $800 on eBay, and now the dual-SIM S20 is down to $749.99. This SM-G980F/DS model is a dual-SIM version intended for international markets. That means it has an Exynos 990 processor instead of a Snapdragon 865, which means it likely won’t be compatible with 5G networks in the United States. It’s also missing a handful of frequencies commonly used by US networks (like Band 29/30 on AT&T) and won’t work...

OnePlus 8 pop-up events are still going to happen, they’ll just be online

OnePlus 8 pop-up events are still going to happen, they’ll just be online

With each of the last few OnePlus phone launches, the company has run pop-up events in major cities so that fans can come down and get their hands on the latest hardware before they go on general sale. In view of the current coronavirus situation, with many of the cities that would usually host a pop-up on lockdown, OnePlus has decided to do these pop-ups online instead. If you head straight to the OnePlus website after the online launch event’s keynote on April 14 (roughly around 5pm BST), you’ll have a chance to be one of the first to order...

Samsung’s supposed next-gen Galaxy Buds are code-named ‘beans,’ and they look just like actual beans

Samsung’s supposed next-gen Galaxy Buds are code-named ‘beans,’ and they look just like actual beans

We only recently got an upgraded pair of Galaxy Buds+ from Samsung, at the same time as the Galaxy S20 series was launched, and they offer superior battery life and improved sound in a practically identical form factor. If a new report from WinFuture is to be believed, Samsung’s next-generation true wireless earbuds could introduce a new design the like of which we’ve not seen before. Using leaked information, WinFuture has put together some renders of upcoming Galaxy Buds which are unsurprisingly code-named “beans” — previous versions have been referred to as “popcorn” internally. The kidney-shaped earbuds are apparently around...

Android 10 kernel sources are available for the Moto One Power, Hyper, Vision, and Action (Updated)

Android 10 kernel sources are available for the Moto One Power, Hyper, Vision, and Action (Updated)

The Motorola One Power was one of the first of the company’s phones to get Android 10. If custom ROMs are more your style, Motorola has now released the kernel source code for the Android 10 update, making it easier for developers to create ROMs and recoveries based on Android 10. Motorola has uploaded the Android 10 kernel source for “chef” to its public GitHub repository ⁠— making it the company’s first Android 10 kernel release. “Chef” actually refers to two devices that share similar hardware: the Android One-based Motorola One Power, and the P30 Note that uses Motorola’s own...

more than 30 AR animals, list of compatible phones (Updated)

more than 30 AR animals, list of compatible phones (Updated)

Although they were announced nearly a year ago, Google’s AR objects in search didn’t get their proper spotlight until a few weeks ago, when people in lockdown and stuck at home discovered that you can easily bring the wildlife into their living rooms. Tigers, leopards, wolves, snakes, and also a lot of cutesy animals like pandas and cats and several breeds of dogs, can be recreated in 3D in front of you, letting your kids (or your inner kid, we won’t judge) have fun and be creative with different possible snaps and setups. Let’s take a look at some of...
