IFA 2019: TCL’s Foldable Phone Concept Looks a Lot Better Now

Earlier this year TCL revealed some concept designs for a foldable phone, and they were horrible ugly things that made me glad they weren't going to be coming to market.

And not just because this one apparently folds all the way. Read More >>

There’s a common problem with soundbars. They only sound as big as they are, and soundbars, by design, are compact systems. TCL wants to solve this problem with a new acoustic solution that can blast sound all around your living room thanks to some slick curves and Dolby Atmos technology. It’s a wacky idea, and it in my brief experience, it works. Read More >>

IFA 2019: TCL’s New Flagship, the Plex, Has Bluetooth Audio Sharing, Insists it’s Better Than Apple’s

Earlier this year Apple let it slip that iOS 13 was coming with a very useful feature: audio sharing. Or, in other more descriptive terms, the ability to share a device's audio to more than one set of headphones. Now TCL has announced that it's also bringing this feature to its phones, and that it'll be much better than what Apple has to offer when iOS 13 finally launches. Read More >>

So we wanted to take a little time to go over all the big phone debuts that happened at IFA 2018. Read More >>

The BlackBerry Key2 Makes Me Wish Physical Keyboards Weren’t All But Dead

Chances are that if you’re reading this, there’s one smartphone feature you care more about than anything else. That’s because even with the Key2’s sleeker, more refined design, an interesting choice of components and its questionable BlackBerry heritage, this handset has one thing you simply don’t get on phones anymore: a good ‘ole physical keyboard. And I’ve got to admit that even though I’m much more accustomed to the touch-based keyboards found on every other device nowadays the Blackberry Key2's keyboard is fantastic. Read More >>
