OnePlus 5T Review Part 1: A solid all-rounder

Silently setting their own trend of taking the holidays by a storm, OnePlus refreshed its flagship lineup with the OnePlus 5T. While last year’s T model brought us slightly upgraded internals, OnePlus has decided to change the phone’s looks this time around. And that’s for a very good reason – the OnePlus 5 looked too 2016-ish for a lot of the discerning customers. In a world where companies almost literally cut the corners to trim the screen bezels as much as possible, the OnePlus 5 touted chunky chins and an outdated design. Not to mention the camera woes in low light conditions.

There’s finally a perfect screen protector for the Pixel 2 XL

As more and more phones sport curved displays, it has become much harder to find quality screen protectors for them. I’ve had the Pixel 2 XL for a couple of months now, and initially, I was using IQ Shield’s liquid screen protector. I never got around to writing a review for it, but, in short, all I can say is that it was decent for what it was worth. Obviously, it wasn’t glass, so it didn’t really feel natural. I definitely considered getting a tempered glass protector, but there wasn’t any on Amazon with good reviews or without fake reviews—that is until Whitestone Dome Glass released their’s late last month. Here are my impressions.

Microsoft Launcher Review: A Serious Contender for your Home Screen

However, I tend to stick to Trebuchet at times, too. I don’t need too many customization options, but the state of the AOSP Launcher is pathetic, and it’s good to see serious competition in the launcher space.

Paranoid Android and OnePlus 3 review

On May 31st, Paranoid Android for the OnePlus 3 was released after a long line of tweets and test builds. Bemused by the hype, I decided to take a further look. I’ve never really used AOSPA, but the perplexing nature of an entirely different Android version attracted me. I was impressed, but to give you an idea of the nature of this article and what my opinions will be, I am no longer using it.

OnePlus 3/3T Android 7.0 Nougat & Oxygen OS 4.0 upgrade review

OxygenOS Nougat Update

Back in November, when the OnePlus 3T launched, OnePlus’ co-founder, Carl Pei, stated in their forums that the Nougat update would come to both the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T “later in the year.” But with OnePlus’ fame for unfulfilled promises, it came as a surprise to many that on the last day of 2016, the Nougat update was rolling out to nearly all devices.
