First Look at the Rumored Xiaomi Mi 6
After our review of OnePlus 3 and 3T, and a little disappointment in the VR department, we decided to look for a phone with that can mix a good price with a better screen. After discussing with several vendors and their retail / e-tail outfits, we came across a few good ones. If the price point is set around $500, we came to conclusion that in that price bracket, there are just two really good phones with high quality displays. First one is ZTE Axon 7, and the third one, the topic of this first look is Xiaomi Mi6. Although this phone has not been released yet
How Does OnePlus 3T Smartphone Performs VR?
After the new OnePlus 3T smartphone came out, with the same display as the original “3”, we decided to test this not so pricey flagship killer in Virtual Reality. Before that we did a comparison of OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T that you can read here. OnePlus decided not to upgrade their 1080×1920 pixels Optical AMOLED display, and although it does not suck – it can be better. The same thing repeated in the camera department. Overall, the camera is really good, even great if you are willing to play with manual options like tuning down ISO in low light. But back on the point here,
OnePlus Discontinues 3 Phone, Replaces it with 3T
Shortly after the announcement of OnePlus 3T phone, OnePlus has confirmed that it will no longer be selling the smartphone in US and Europe. With this move OnePlus is pushing their customers to buy the newly announced OnePlus 3T. Sadly for the manufacturer, the long lead times for both the US and Europe means they could miss out on the Holiday Season 2016 sales. The OnePlus 3T comes with a somewhat larger battery (3,400mAh), extra storage option (128GB), an updated CPU (Qualcomm Snapdragon 821), and higher-resolution (16 MP) selfie-camera. The 64GB storage variant of the device costs $439, while the 128GB one carries a $479
Samsung Electronics to Announce Galaxy S7 in January 2016
According to the Korean publication ET News, Samsung plans to change the product introduction cadence for their Galaxy S flagship lineup. According to sources in the supply chain, ET News claims the announcement of Samsung Galaxy S7 will come in January 2016, probably during the CES trade show in Las Vegas. The product announcement should follow with a complete turnaround in the company’s smartphone sector, by splitting Samsung’s models into Premium and Sub Premium, followed by Mainstream and Entry Level. If that sounds like a bad idea, you’re not the only one. The idea behind Samsung’s plan is a simple one. They want to attract more customers and diversify their lineup, but is

OnePlus One Gets Delayed Due to an OpenSSL Security Update
The much awaited OnePlus One smartphone has hit yet another snag on its way to being delivered to those that could actually get ahold of one. The $299 smartphone has it all, and for a reasonable price, but the catch is that they’re limiting production so that they don’t bankrupt themselves, or their parent company OPPO in the process. And since the device is running CyanogenMod as the OS, there are some things that need to be ironed out before the device ships to consumers as a ‘shipping’ final device. One of those things is that CyanogenMod recently had a major security update as a
Can We Trust OnePlus, Who is Really Behind Them? OPPO?
OnePlus has a new phone that the entire internet has been talking about, which happens to share the same name as HTC’s flagship phone, the One. So, we have the OnePlus One and the HTC One, okay, a little problematic, but nothing too serious since the two brand names usually come before the model name. OnePlus have been billing themselves as an upstart smartphone company, some of which were formerly with OPPO. Funny enough, if you abbreviate OnePlus One, it almost says OPPO but that just seems a bit ridiculous until you look at when the company was founded and when all of the trademarks
OnePlus One Premium Smartphone Launches at $299
The long awaited OnePlus One smartphone has finally made its official debut after many months of slow trickles and leaks. This smartphone was promised to be the smartphone without compromises, and judging by the current specs listed of the OnePlus One, it appears that their statement has held true.

Specifically, the white model selling for $299 with 16GB of storage space (and no memory card slot) and the black version selling for $349 with 64GB of storage space.
