Netflix HDR support added for LG G7 One, Sony Xperia XZ3 and XZ2 Premium

0 comments

Netflix HDR support kicked off with the LG G6 back in May 2017, but quite a few devices have been added since then. Most recently, the Sony Xperia XZ2, the Huawei Mate 10, and the Huawei P20 were added. Three more phones have just joined the roster: the LG G7 One, the Sony Xperia XZ3, and the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium.

The LG G7 already had HDR support, so it's no surprise that the Android One-powered G7 One has received it as well.

0 comments

Firefox for Android has become significantly better over the past few updates, especially with the new Photon UI and 'Quantum' CSS rendering engine. Version 63 is now available for Android, and it adds a handful of useful features, including support for Picture-in-Picture mode and notification channels.

While Firefox doesn't yet have per-site notification channels like Chrome, it does now have individual options for downloads, media playback, location messages, synced tabs, and web push notifications.

Google limits Pixel 3 wireless charging rate to standard 5W for third-party chargers

0 comments

We already knew that Google's Assistant UI would only work on the Pixel Stand. This decision by Google, while annoying, is understandable. Less understandable is the recent discovery that the Pixel 3 and 3 XL will only wirelessly charge at 10W on the Pixel Stand, with all third-party wireless chargers limited to the much slower 5W.

A reader recently purchased a 10W Anker wireless charger to wirelessly fast charge his Pixel 3 with, only to discover that the phone was only getting a maximum of 500mA via the charging app Ampere.

Google’s new Game of Thrones Chromebook marketing is kinda funny, but mostly cringey

0 comments

Last Friday (the 19th), the @Google account tweeted out that "Winter is coming for Chromebook..." together with a confusing video that showed a clip from Game of Thrones playing inside Slides on a Chromebook. The crossover event seems to have resolved as a new "White Walkers" page is now up on Google's Chromebook site. At first glance, it seems like an out-of-touch marketing effort, or a last minute attempt to use up acquired licensing, but parts of it are at least a little funny.

eBay's new Instant Selling program aims to beat out competitors' smartphone trade-in values

0 comments

There's no shortage of trade-in programs out there. All major carriers and several OEMs have them, and companies like Gazelle exist solely for trade-ins. eBay has just launched its own program, dubbed Instant Selling, and it thinks that it can beat out the other companies' values.

eBay previously had a program called eBay Valet, which would sell your stuff for you in exchange for a fee ranging from 20% to 50%.

Qualcomm launches Snapdragon 675, a mid-range chip designed for mobile gaming

0 comments

 

Qualcomm waited over a year to deliver a successor to the Snapdragon 660, a well-received mid-range chipset launched in 2017 that ended up gracing a lengthy list of devices including the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018), Asus ZenFone 4, and Nokia 7 Plus. The Snapdragon 670 arrived in August, promising enhanced AI performance and the usual performance improvements. Fast forward just a few months and Qualcomm has now doubled up, launching the Snapdragon 675 at its 4G/5G Summit in Hong Kong.

Qualcomm shrinks mmWave antenna ahead of 5G handset reveals in 2019

0 comments

5G is coming. That's a line you've no doubt read countless times by now. But just as it begins to ring false (like a wireless tech version of The Boy Who Cried Wolf), it's also more accurate than ever. In July, Qualcomm revealed new antenna for mmWave spectrum — the finnicky, high-frequency stuff that's crucial to 5G. These antenna modules were actually small enough for practical use in smartphones, a major milestone.

Google promises to fix camera bug resulting in unsaved photos

0 comments

A few nasty software bugs have been discovered on the Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL, one of which causes some photos not to be saved. It's not entirely clear what triggers the bug in the first place, though there were reports of it affecting other Google-made phones too, like the Pixel 2 XL.

Whatever the root cause is, Google has promised it will be fixed "in the coming weeks." A Google spokesperson has provided us with the following statement:

"We will be rolling out a software update in the coming weeks to address the rare case of a photo not properly saving."

It's good to know that at least one of the Pixel 3's software bugs is already in the process of being fixed.
