Picture from T-Mobile starts employing 600MHz spectrum won in FCC auction T-Mobile starts employing 600MHz spectrum won in FCC auction
Back last April, T-Mobile announced that it had won 45% of the 600MHz spectrum put up for auction by the FCC. That worked out to 31MHz of low-frequency airwaves won by the nation's third largest carrier for the amount of $7.9 billion. Low-frequency bands are in demand because they travel farther and penetrate buildings better than those of the high-frequency variation, which is why the process for the auction was fought in court for a period...

About a week ago, OnePlus unveiled a brand new color of its popular OnePlus 5 phone: it calls it "soft gold" and it's the only OnePlus 5 with a white finish on the front. Right there and then, we thought we'd ask you: which of the three currently available colors do you like best?...

We live in the era of mobile computing, or even post-PC era if you will. We access our data from a lot of different devices and at the same time, we need to micromanage the limited storage our phones provide. Of course, the cloud is a great way to do that — simple, easy, and integrated with most popular apps. It makes sharing easier, helps you store your endless stream of photos and video, and a lot more. The cloud is cool, sure... but not free.

Well, we are both feet in the second half of the year and the mobile world is up for yet another series of shocks — the announcements of such colossi as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the Apple iPhone 8, the Google Pixel 2, LG V30, and Sony Xperia XZ1. For a smartphone fan, there's lots to be excited about. We will see most of these devices at IFA in Berlin come September, while the iPhone and Pixel will take their sweet time until September and October, respectively... at least that's what we expect.

Allo — Google's nth chat app — continues to grow. It ticks all the basics — stickers, optional encrypted messages, expressive messages where you can change the size of your text bubble, and doodling — and has a couple of unique features, like smart suggested replies and Google Assistant built in for an endless feed of dad jokes. The app's on par with the competition for sure, just a bit late to the party and lacking something truly exclusive to pull people away from WhatsApp and Messenger.

That's not all there will be to this year's iPhone crop announcement next month, though. In fact, Apple should be unveiling three handsets - one unorthodox iPhone 8 to hint at where the phone maker is going, and two more legacy-oriented iPhone 7s and 7s Plus upgrades that are meant to satisfy those used to the current hardware paradigm.

Picture of ZTE Blade Z Max ZTE Blade Z Max
Just like the Zmax Pro, the Blade X Max offers a rear-facing fingerprint scanner. What's new here actually sits right above it: this is the latest device to jump on the dual camera bandwagon, sporting a weird combo of a primary 16 MP sensor, and a secondary 2 MP one, though the latter will be used primarily for the obligatory portrait mode. The front camera is also upgraded, and now produces images with an 8 MP resolution. Inside you'll find some pretty modest specs: a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 chipset with 2 gigs of RAM and 32 GB of storage (expandable via SD card). There is, however, one particularly impressive aspect to the device: the large 4,080 mAh battery.

Picture of T-Mobile REVVL T-Mobile REVVL
The T-Mobile REVVL is a budget oriented phone with a 5.5-inch 720p display, 1.5-GHz quad-core chip courtesy of MediaTek, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (expandable via microSD card), fingerprint sensor, 13-megapixel main shooter and a 5-megapixel selfie snapper on the front.

Picture of Asus ZenPad Z8s Asus ZenPad Z8s
The Slate Gray ZenPad Z8s features a 7.9-inch IPS display with a 1536 x 2048 QXGA resolution screen. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of expandable native storage. A rear-facing 13MP camera is on-board along with a front-facing 5MP selfie snapper. A 4680mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android Nougat is pre-installed.

Honor Note 9
Honor Note 9 should come with a dual-camera setup comprising of two 12-megapixel snap shooters. Also, the phone will carry a large 4,600 mAh battery, which is much needed considering this could be one of the biggest smartphones on the market. Under the shiny chassis, the Honor Note 9 will pack the next-generation Kirin 965 processor, an improved version of the current Kirin 960 chipset, which hasn't been introduced yet.

Picture of Motorola Moto G5S Plus Motorola Moto G5S Plus
The Moto G5S Plus is a "special edition" variant of the Moto G5 Plus from earlier this year. A dual camera (two 13MP sensors, one color, and one monochromatic) has been added, the front camera has been upgraded to 8MP (from 5MP), and the display has been enlarged to 5.5 inches by diagonal. The smartphone also grows slightly bigger than the original. These specifics aside, the hardware remains the same.

Picture of Motorola Moto G5S Motorola Moto G5S
The Moto G5S sports a 5.2-inch 1080p display (instead of the 5-inch 1080p screen of the regular G5), and packs a slightly bigger battery - 3000 mAh, instead of 2800 mAh. RAM and storage space have been upgraded, too (3 GB and 32 GB), while the rear camera is now a 16 MP one. The rest of the new phone's features appear to be similar to those of the G5, including a Snapdragon 430 processor, and a 5 MP front-facing camera.

Picture of Celkon Smart 4G Celkon Smart 4G
Specs-wise, the Celkon Smart 4G is a rather modest offering. The handset sports a 4-inch display, further featuring a 2 MP front-facing camera, 3.2 MP rear camera, quad-core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable internal memory.

Picture of Karbonn A40 Indian Karbonn A40 Indian
The Karbonn A40 Indian is a low-end smartphone with Android 7.0. Its specs are nothing to write home about - 4" 480 x 800 px display, 1.3 GHz quad core processor, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB ROM, microSD card slot, 2 MP rear camera, and a 0.3 MP front one. Dual SIM card support is on board as well.

Picture of Meizu Pro 7 Meizu Pro 7
The Meizu Pro 7 sports definite mid-ranger specs, thanks to its MediaTek helio P25 SoC, though this is combined with 4 GB of RAM. But this is the base version only: a second, high-specced variant will be offered as well, with the same helio X30 chipset as its sibling, as well as 128 GB of storage (the regular version offers 64 GB of storage instead). 

Picture of Meizu Pro 7 Plus Meizu Pro 7 Plus
The Meizu Pro 7 Plus marks the debut of MediaTek's latest flagship chipset, the Helio X30, combined with 6 GB of RAM. The phone will come with either 64 GB or 128 GB of storage and sports a 5.7-inch QHD display. Above the Samsung-made Super AMOLED panel, Meizu has shoved an impressive-sounding 16 MP sensor on its selfie cam, which also utilizes a so-called "four-in-one" algorithm to make low-light selfies look better.

Picture of Xiaomi Mi 5X Xiaomi Mi 5X
The upper mid-range Mi 5X packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB RAM and a 5.5-inch Full HD display. Android 7.1 Nougat is onboard and a 3,000 mAh battery keeps the lights on. There are two 12-megapixel cameras on the back, as well as a 5-megapixel selfie shooter at front.

Picture of Samsung Galaxy S8 Active Samsung Galaxy S8 Active
TheGalaxy S8 Active shares most of its internals with the regular S8, but it's got a tougher, different-looking exterior. That means you still get the Snapdragon 835 chip, paired with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB, the cameras are also the same as in the S8 (12 MP rear and 8 MP front). The new phone's 5.8-inch, 1440 x 2960 pixels display is flat and protected by raised margins, while a "durable metal frame" makes the device shock-resistant. Overall, the S8 Active will be a bit taller, wider, thicker, and heavier than the regular S8 - not only because of its rugged design, but also because it packs a larger (4000 mAh) battery.

Picture of BLU R2 LTE BLU R2 LTE
The BLU R2 LTE comes with a 1.3-GHz quad-core processor, 5.2-inch display, 3GB of ram and 32 GB of storage (2GB of RAM and 16GB storage version is also available0. 3000mah battery and two 13-megapixel cameras with flashes.

Picture of Motorola Moto Z2 Force Edition Motorola Moto Z2 Force Edition
Moto’s Z line of devices is defined by its support for Moto mods, Lenovo’s answer to the modular smartphone craze. And the Z2 Force Edition, which is the company’s only flagship of the year, offers full support for the whole line of accessories, which take the form of snappable backs. Just like last year’s Z Force, it features a ShatterShield display, which Moto guarantees won’t shatter no matter what. Powering the Z2 Force Edition is Qualcomm’s current best-in-line chip, with either 4 or 6 GB of RAM in tow. This is also the first Moto handset to feature a dual camera, with two 12 MP sensors — one monochrome and one color. And despite carrying the Force branding, the phone does not feature its predecessor’s large battery capacity, which has instead been reduced to just 2,730 mAh.

Picture of BLU R2 BLU R2
The BLU R2 comes with a 1.3-GHz quad-core processor, 5.2-inch 720p display, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage and two 8-megapixel cameras.

Picture of LG Q8 LG Q8
The IP67 certified LG Q8 comes with a 5.2-inch main screen with 1440x2560 pixels and an additional small always on display right above it. On the back, the Q8 has a fingerprint scanner, and a dual camera (13 MP + 8 MP) for wide-angle photos and 4K video recording. The front-facing camera is a 5 MP wide-angle one. Also on board are a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, a Hi-Fi DAC (digital to analog converter) for superior audio quality, 4 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of expandable internal memory. The new smartphone weighs 146 grams, measures 149 x 71.9 x 8 mm, and packs a non-removable 3000 mAh battery.

Picture of Nokia 105 (2017) Nokia 105 (2017)
“The all new Nokia 105,” is a modern take on the four-year-old feature phone. However, aside from the slightly different look, the new Nokia 105 doesn't come with anything new over the predecessors. The one thing that we can say for certain it's a real upgrade over the previous Nokia 105 models is the larger 1.8-inch display. The phone comes with a removable 800 mAh battery, which is supposed to provide users up to 15 hours talk time. An FM radio is included too, along with 3.5mm audio jack and micro-USB 2.0 ports.

Picture of Nokia 130 (2017) Nokia 130 (2017)
Aside from the design aspect, there don't seem to be any differences between the old model and the all new Nokia 130. The feature phone sports a 1.8-inch display with 128 x 160 pixels resolution, 4MB RAM and 8MB ROM. A microSD card slot is included as well so that you can expand storage up to 32GB. FM Radio, along with 3.5mm audio jack and micro-USB 2.0 ports are available too.

Picture of ZTE Blade Spark ZTE Blade Spark
With its rather light price-tag, the Blade Spark's specs are justifiably low-tier - a quad-core, 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of storage expandable via microSD. The display is rather large, with a 5.5-inch diagonal, but not extremely sharp, with a 720 x 1280 pixel resolution. The cameras sound good on paper, with a 13 MP PDAF-assisted sensor at the back and a 5 MP snapper on the fron. There's an included fingerprint scanner on the back. Considering it's a phone that's best meant for light usage, its 3,140 mAh battery seems quite generous and will probably last you a while. The Blade Spark comes with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box.

Picture of HTC Desire 555 HTC Desire 555
The HTC Desire 555 features a 5-inch display with a 720 x 1280 resolution. Under the hood is a quad-core 1.1GHz CPU and there is 16GB of native storage inside. Those seeking additional storage can access the 2TB capacity microSD slot. The back of the phone carries an 8MP camera, while a 5MP selfie snapper can be found on the front of the Desire 555. Keeping the lights on is a 2200mAh battery, and Android 7.0 is pre-installed.

Picture of Huawei nova 2 Plus Huawei nova 2 Plus
Huawei nova 2 Plu is a mid-ranger that features a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) display and a massive 3340 mAh battery. Also, the smartphone is powered by an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659 processor, paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory. More importantly, the Nova 2 is a cheaper alternative for those who absolutely must own a smartphone with a dual-camera setup. Huawei's handset comes with 12-megapixel and 8-megapixel cameras on the back, along with an impressive 20-megapixel selfie camera.

Picture of Honor 6A Honor 6A
The Honor 6A sports a 5-inch display with HD (720p) resolution and a 1.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB of expandable storage (up to 128GB via microSD). The phone comes with a single-lens 13-megapixel camera on the back, as well as a secondary 5-megapixel camera on the front that should be enough to take average quality selfies.

Picture of Huawei Mate 10 Huawei Mate 10
The Huawei Mate 10 is a high-end Android phone expected to debut in late 2017. Very little is known about it at this time, but according to rumors, the device will stand out with a large touchscreen covering nearly all of its front side. At the back, a dual-camera setup is likely, and on the inside, a powerful, Huawei-made Kirin chip will take care of the number crunching. All of this hardware should be powered by a high-capacity, fast-charging battery. An as far as pricing goes, don't hope for the Huawei Mate 10 to be cheap.

Picture of Huawei nova 2 Huawei nova 2
Huawei nova 2 is a mid-ranger that features a 5-inch full HD (1080p) display and a 2950 mAh battery. Also, the smartphone is powered by an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659 processor, paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.

Picture of LG Q6 LG Q6
The LG Q6 is the first phone to be announced from its new Q-series mid-range lineup, offering premium features at a "competitive price." At its centerpiece is a FullVision display with an 18:9 aspect ratio surrounded by slim bezels and a sturdy frame made of 7000-series aluminum. But now comes the tricky part: there are three different variants of the LG Q6. All of them feature a 5.5-inch display with FHD+ resolution (1080 x 2160 pixels). Powering all is the Snapdragon 435 chipset, containing an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 505 GPU. But they differ in the amount of RAM and storage they ship with.

Picture of Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) AT&T Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) AT&T
The Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) that AT&T is selling is a slightly improved and redesigned Galaxy J7 (2016) - similar to Verizon's Galaxy J7 V and Sprint's Galaxy J7 Perx. The phone sports a 5.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7870 processor clocked at 1.6 GHz. The J7 (2017) further features an 8 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a relatively generous 3300 mAh battery.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition is essentially a refurbhished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phablet. As such, it comes with high-end specs, including the original's large and detailed display, as well as its set of fast and sharp cameras. The Note 7's Snapdragon 820 SoC has been replaced by the refined SD821, while the 3500mAh battery has been swapped for a smaller, but much safer 3200mAh cell. Water resistance is also on board, as is the S Pen digital stylus. The software, based on Android 7 Nougat, adopts features found on the Galaxy S8, including Bixby Home and various visual alterations.

Picture from OnePlus 5 vs LG G6 OnePlus 5 vs LG G6
Let’s say that you’re looking for a new Android phone, and around $500 is all you’re willing to spend. Until recently, one of your best options would have been the LG G6 – a feature-packed, water-resistant handset with attractive design and a versatile dual-camera setup at the back. But now there’s also the OnePlus 5 to consider within this price range. It may not be as flashy as the G6, but assets like the top-notch hardware specs and the dual-camera arrangement make this one of the best value-for-money Android device money can buy right now. So, which one should you go for: the LG G6 or the OnePlus 5? May this comparison guide you forth.
