Motorola Edge Plus: The best cameras of any Moto phone — but I wanted more

The Motorola Edge Plus has pretty much everything you’d hope for in a premium 5G phone: A Snapdragon 865 chipset, a giant battery, an OLED screen with a high refresh rate and multiple rear cameras with heavy-duty specs. Motorola took features found on other top-of-the-line Android phones, put its own Moto spin on them and built them all into one of the most wonderful Android phones I’ve tried in a long time.

TCL 10 Pro review: Stunning $450 Android phone rivals Apple’s iPhone SE Review

TCL has been building smartphones for a long time, such as the most up-to-date BlackBerry and Alcatel telephones. With the TCL ten sequence we see the initially TCL-branded telephones launching for North American consumers. Right after just a day with the spectacular Ember Gray TCL ten Professional it is distinct that TCL is presenting a compelling choice for significantly less than $five hundred.

Currently, I’ve been screening the low expense Apple Apple iphone SE and least expensive priced 5G telephone, the OnePlus 8, and the new TCL ten Professional presents a thing in involving these two at a $450 cost.

Apple iPhone SE (2020) review: An affordable, capable business phone fit for uncertain times Review

A couple of years ago the Apple iPhone X restored my joy in smartphones and a lot of that had to do with the small size and extremely responsive performance of the phone. I went through the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR before choosing to stick with the iPhone XS and then moved onto the iPhone 11 Pro.

Two months ago, I traded in my iPhone 11 Pro — as part of the T-Mobile Jump On Demand program  — to pick up the new Galaxy S20. When I saw the announcement for the new 2020 iPhone SE with a

Review: OnePlus 8 Pro is an excellent phone, but dang, it’s pricey

Of the two new flagship phones from Chinese phone-maker OnePlus, the OnePlus 8 Pro is the higher-end device. In addition to 5G, which both phones have, it has IP certification for water resistance, a total of four cameras — one at 48 megapixels — and a bigger, 120Hz display. Available starting April 22, it’s also pricier at $899 (£799) for 128GB storage and $999 (£899) for 256GB. (Australian prices aren’t yet available, but £799 converts to roughly AU$1,570.) The OnePlus 8 starts at $699 (£599).
