No, Xiaomi isn't working on a Mi Mix 2 variant with an iPhone X-style notch

11

This is not the Mi Mix 2s.

Xiaomi said during the launch of the Mi Mix 2 that it explored various implementations for the positioning of the front camera, including a design that featured a cutout at the top, much like the "notch" on the iPhone X. The company ultimately decided to place the camera module on the bottom bezel for the Mix 2, and while alleged photos of a "Mi Mix 2s" with a cutout at the top are making the rounds, the phone in question is a standard Mi Mix 2 running an app that mimics the notch.

0

Xiaomi has three great options in the budget segment.

Mophie announces new battery cases for the Galaxy Note 8

8

Mophie's new juice pack and charge force case for the Note 8 cost $99.95 and $49.95, respectively.

Samsung knocked most things out of the park with this year's Note 8, but one aspect of the phone that left some users feeling a bit cheated out is with its battery. The 3,300 mAh unit isn't technically small and offers enough juice for most folks, but compared to the Galaxy S8+ and last year's Note 7, it does leave a bit to be desired.

Thankfully, mophie is coming to the rescue as it just announced its juice pack and charge force case for the Galaxy Note 8.

Starting first with the juice pack, this is the more expensive of the two cases with a price tag of $99.95. The juice pack comes equipped with a built-in 2,950 mAh battery, and mophie says that this should provide over 36 hours of additional talk time. Mophie added wireless charging to the case so you can continue to wirelessly charge your Note 8 just like you would if it didn't have a case on, and it features secure magnetic positioning for use with mophie's charge force stations.

As for the charge force case, this features a much more affordable price of $49.95 with the exception of not having a built-in battery. This makes the case much slimmer than the juice pack, and it still offers passthrough wireless charging and compatibility with all of mophie's charge force accessories – including the powerstation mini, desk mount, and others.

Both cases are available to order from mophie's website starting today, but at the time of publishing the article, the juice pack is already out of stock.

Samsung's launching a Galaxy S8 in Burgundy Red, and it looks amazing

41

Sadly, it's currently only available in South Korea 😞

In recent years, we've seen manufacturers get more and more adventurous when it comes to colors that phones are sold in. The Nextbit Robin debuted in a stunning white and mint combo, Google's Really Blue Pixel last year was a joy to look at, and HTC's still impressive Solar Red U11 just might be one of the most eye-catching handsets ever made.

We've seen Samsung adventure with new colors, with some of the most notable being Coral and Deep Sea Blue on the Galaxy S8 and Note 8, respectively.

Just in time for the fall season, Samsung has announced a new color for the former of those two devices. It's called Burgundy Red, and it's easily one of Samsung's best color options yet.

The back, frame, and buttons of the Burgundy Red Galaxy S8 feature a very bright and powerful red hue, and the overall aesthetic really is something special. "It's no Solar Red U11" as our own Hayato Huseman points out, but I don't care. I still think it looks great and I'd like to buy five of them right now.

Unfortunately, for the time being, you'll only be able to buy the Galaxy S8 in Burgundy Red if you're in South Korea. Samsung hasn't indicated if the new color will be making its way to other markets, but with the Deep Sea Blue Note 8 recently launching in the U.S., we wouldn't totally count against that happening just yet.

OnePlus 5T will reportedly cost just $479 – same as the OnePlus 5

35

OnePlus might not increase the price for its latest flagship.

Similar to last year, OnePlus will be releasing two phones in 2017. We already got the OnePlus 5 this past summer, and in just a few days we'll get our first official look at the OnePlus 5T. OnePlus has followed a trend of steadily increasing prices for its handsets with every new release, but according to a new report, this won't be the case with the 5T.

TechRadar claims to have gotten its hands on an official document from O2 in the United Kingdom that indicates businesses will spend the same amount of money for the OnePlus 5T as they can for the OnePlus 5 when ordering phones through the carrier.

We're only talking about enterprise orders through a single carrier in the UK, but if OnePlus is keeping pricing the same here, we'd expect the company to follow suit with consumers and other markets as well.

As such, this means that we can expect the OnePlus 5T to have a starting price of $479 in the United States when it officially launches. The recently discovered document is also said to confirm that the 5T will be available with either 64GB or 128GB of storage, so it's also likely that the latter capacity will have a slightly increased price of $539.

Are you using a screen protector on the Note 8's curved display?

43

The Note 8's curved display looks great, but it makes applying a screen protector nearly impossible.

There's a lot we can say about Samsung's Galaxy Note 8, but one of its hallmark features is its massive 6.3-inch curved AMOLED display. This display is a true beauty for watching movies, playing games, and browsing the web, but as some of our forum users are quickly discovering, it's not necessarily the most practical thing in the world.

Because of the Note 8's curved edges, a lot of our forum users are having a tough time trying to apply a screen protector to the thing. This is an issue that all phones with curved displays are susceptible to, but it's even more pronounced on the Note 8 due to its ginormous size.

Here's what some of you have had to say.

After several attempts with tempered glass and film screen protectors, I give up. The curved screen seems to make it impossible for the screen protectors to adhere for any length of time. Aside from not adhering, the tempered glass screen protectors I've tried caused a significant reduction in response to the touchscreen. Looking at reviews, it doesn't appear there is any screen protector for...

I haven't used a screen protector since the s8+ they make the experience with the phone unbearable. That and it was costing too much money trying to find one that worked. I do however have a little nick in the screen on the curve. It's not really noticeable, but I know it's there. Still not as bad as dealing with a crappy screen cover.

I understand what you are saying, OP. My phone has a curved screen too; which definitely affects the placement of the screen protector. I would recommend a plastic one, as they are less expensive and wouldn't set you as far back; but after going from plastic to tempered glass, myself, I definitely understand that you'd wanna stick with glass if anything. How cautious are you with your...

Yeah, I've been looking through it and have only seen lots of recommendations for the use of screen protectors... I got a screen protector at the Verizon store when I bought the phone and in two weeks the corner started to peel. I didn't realize it was doing this until I noticed the lack of sensitivity when trying to drag the notification bar down. Since then I ripped it off and have rocked it...

Free Google Home Mini promo codes now going out to Pixel 2 and 2 XL buyers

19

Free Google Home Mini codes are going out to Pixel 2 customers.

Google threw in a free Google Home Mini with all Pixel 2 and 2 XL purchases, and the company is now sending out promo codes via email to those that picked up either handset. You'll see a link in the email which will take you to the Google Store, where you can choose the color variant of the Google Home Mini — it's available in Chalk, Charcoal, or Coral.

The Google Home Mini is a competitor to Amazon's Echo Dot, offering the full capabilities of Google Assistant in a compact package. Early units had a bug that recorded conversations 24/7, but Google rolled out a fix that permanently disabled the touch-activated listening feature.

The Google Home Mini costs $49, and the discount should be applied automatically as long as you're signed into the same Google account you used to purchase your Pixel 2 or 2 XL.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2: Everything you need to know!

3

Xiaomi continues its dominance in late 2017 with a high end, bezel-less phone: the Mi Mix 2.

In late 2016, Xiaomi released the Mi Mix: a high end phone with a stunning, bezel-less design, ushering in characteristics now seen on the Galaxy Note 8, LG V30 and iPhone X. Xiaomi beat all these big players to the punch, and is back in 2017 to refine the formula further with the Mi Mix 2.

This is everything you need to know about the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2.

Check out our Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 review

We've had our hands on the Mi Mix 2 for a while now, and we've loved what we've seen. Be sure to read our full review to get a long-term look at the phone's design, software and usability.

More: Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 review: Astounding, audacious, accessbile

It actually works in the United States

Xiaomi has long been known for offering high-end specs at lower prices than other phone manufacturers, in part because it makes up for this with revenue from its software services in its primary markets. These low prices have made Xiaomi phones attractive for consumers willing to import them, but carrier compatibility has been a mess.

Fortunately, with the Mi Mix 2 that has changed. The phone is fully compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile in the United States, with support for 42 total LTE bands. If you're hoping to use the Mi Mix 2 in your home country, odds are good that it'll work.

The camera is pretty damn good

Xiaomi stuck with a single rear camera this year, rather than follow the dual camera path that other manufacturers have gone down. Despite this, the camera is pretty great: it bests the similarly-priced OnePlus 5 in most daylight and nighttime conditions.

In our comparison with the two phones, the Mi Mix 2 is able to pick up finer details in most scenarios. The front-facing camera is still on the bottom bezel, which is still awkward in third-party apps that use the camera such as Duo or WhatsApp.

There's no headphone jack

If you're interested in the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, you'll also be interested in some Bluetooth headphones.

It's available in India

India is Xiaomi's second-largest market, so its only fitting the Mi Mix 2 would be available in the country. The only variant available in India is the 128GB storage/6GB RAM configuration for ₹35,999 and it is available exclusively on Flipkart and in Mi Home stores.

LG V30+ coming to T-Mobile November 17

24

All yours for $130 down and $30/month for 24 months.

The V30 is one of LG's best and most refined smartphones in a number of years, and as you'd probably expect, you can pick the handset up through a number of different carriers. LG also announced the V30+ alongside the regular V30, and after first debuting on Sprint and then U.S. Cellular, the slightly upgraded variant is now making its way to T-Mobile.

In case you forgot, the main difference for the V30+ is that it comes equipped with 128GB of internal storage as opposed to the regular V30's 64GB. Both phones can be expanded up to 2TB with a microSD card, but for customers that want to have as much storage space as possible out of the box, the V30+ is the handset for you. Additionally, T-Mobile's version of the V30+ comes bundled with a free pair of LG QuadPlay headphones.

T-Mobile will start selling the V30+ on November 17, and just like the V30, it features a 600MHz band to connect to gigabit speeds when they're made available.

You'll need to hand over $130 down and then $30/month for 24 months for the V30+, making it $50 more expensive than the regular V30.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Active coming to T-Mobile Nov 17, Sprint by end of November

23

It was a tough wait for this tough phone to come to more carriers.

Samsung's rough-and-tough Galaxy S8 Active launched over two months ago exclusively on AT&T, and now it's finally making an expansion to new carriers as has been rumored. Both T-Mobile and Sprint are picking up the hardened version of the Galaxy S8, and they won't involve any hardware changes or anything else exclusive — both will get the same phone, in the "meteor grey" color, but now certified for use on their respective networks.

People were immediately drawn to the Galaxy S8 Active for a number of reasons, not the least of which being its 4000mAh battery and lack of a glass back, but having it exclusive to AT&T was always a pain. Now, you can at least choose from three carriers here in the U.S. — not quite as good as offering it unlocked as well, but we can't complain too much.

The big battery is nice, but this isn't necessarily a better phone than the standard GS8.

But before you go run out and get the Galaxy S8 for its big battery, we should note that it has some downsides that don't make it an immediate winner compared to the standard Galaxy S8. Even though it has a much larger battery and flat display that's easier to use, its plastic-coated shatter-resistant display is dramatically easier to scratch and its hardened exterior is arguably too big and bulky to justify if you're not going to be tough on the phone.

Galaxy S8 vs. Galaxy S8 Active: What's the difference?

If you're coming to the Galaxy S8 Active from a place of needing a rugged phone that can take a beating, though, the GS8 Active is a pretty clear winner compared to a bunch of other phones that put their toughness first and kind of forget about the quality of the overall smartphone experience. The best feature of the Galaxy S8 Active is that it's a Galaxy S8 at its core, with no missing qualities in that respect.

One extra bit of information for the network nerds out there: the T-Mobile Galaxy S8 Active includes the proper radio to take advantage of the carrier's 600MHz (Band 71) spectrum.

T-Mobile is offering the GS8 Active for $100 down and another $30 per month, or a total of $820 — it goes on sale November 17, with select stores picking it up November 22. No word from Sprint yet on pricing or availability. AT&T still charges a hefty $850 for the phone.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro review: Best Android flagship for battery life

55
Mate 10 Pro

Huawei's best flagship yet brings bulletproof battery life, new Oreo-based software, and an AI-enhanced camera to rival the Pixel 2.

The quick take

It's taken us a while to get here, but Huawei finally has a phone that can stand at — or at least near — the top of the Android pile. A fresh new design, dependable performance, and an excellent low-light camera complement staple "Mate" features like epic battery life and a big screen. But unfortunately, some software hiccups remain.

What would you like to see in the Galaxy Note 9?

70

Let the speculation begin.

Just like with every entry in Samsung's Note series, this year's Galaxy Note 8 is one of the best large phones that money can buy. It's got a beautiful display, more than enough software features, some of the fastest silicon around, and a pair of rock-solid rear cameras.

The Note 8 is still a relatively young handset, but even so, some of our forum users have already got to talking about what they'd like to see in next year's Galaxy Note 9. It'll likely be a few more months before the rumor mill for the phone really kicks into full gear, but in any case, here's what some of you had to say.

Dimensions - same width but not as tall. Less heavy in weight. Fingerprint scanner on front. Let's forget about the curved screen.

I like the curved screen. The Note8 is the best ever, but lets blow everyone away with the 9. Keep the phone the same height but a little wider to get back to a 16:9 aspect. Get rid of the thin bottom bezel, shrink the top even further. Embedded front finger print scanner. Stereo speakers. Increase the camera zoom. 256 gb standard. 4000 mah battery.

I want the best camera sensor out there. Something like 1/2" or bigger sensor, f1.4, 4x telephoto. Since it's a wish list, I want indestructible glass on the screen. Is that too much to ask for $1,000? If you add stereo speakers, I would assume the battery size would need to suffer as a consequence. So, if that's the case, I'll stick with the mono speaker.

In no particular order: 1) 4000mah or greater battery 2) Stereo Speakers 3) At LEAST 128GB onboard storage 4) Remove bottom bezel, thinner top bezel, & side bezel too (my Note 7 had thinner side bezels) 5) Fingerprint scanner on-screen 6) 32-bit Quad DAC 7) Different colors (Red would be nice) 8) Differentiation in physical appearance from S9

We know it's pretty early to start talking about this, but we still want to know – What would you like to see in the Galaxy Note 9?

Everything you need to know about the AT&T Unlimited plan

52
AT&T

A complete breakdown of the AT&T Unlimited plan so you know exactly what you get if you switch.

In the United States, there are a lot of companies that can get you and your phone online, but most people use one of the four biggest: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon. Choosing between them can be difficult. Your first priority should be what service works best in the places you spend your time. It's not worth saving $10 a month if the service is bad. Once you have that sorted, you can look at what each company has to offer and the prices they charge for it.

More: Which unlimited plan should you buy?

Let's take a look at the AT&T Unlimited plan to see what they can give you and what it will cost.

AT&T Unlimited plan details

Unlimited Plus

  • Unlimited talk, text, and data
  • 10 GB mobile hotspot (tethering)
  • Unlimited talk and text to Canada and Mexico
  • Advanced messaging between compatible phones on the AT&T network
  • Unlimited talk, text, and data in Canada and Mexico with free Roam North America Feature (if more than 50% of use is outside the U.S. the plan can be terminated)
  • Unlimited music and video streaming with optional Stream Saver for less data use
  • $25 monthly credit for DirecTV services
  • Free HBO subscription

Unlimited Choice

  • Unlimited talk, text, and data
  • Data speeds capped at 3Mbps
  • Standard definition video streaming
  • Unlimited talk and text to Canada and Mexico
  • Advanced messaging between compatible phones on the AT&T network
  • Unlimited talk, text, and data in Canada and Mexico with free Roam North America Feature (if more than 50% of use is outside the U.S. the plan can be terminated)
  • $25 monthly credit for DirecTV services
  • Free HBO subscription

AT&T's definition of Unlimited Data means that after you use 22 GB in a single month, your service can be slowed down if you're in a congested area. You'll hear the word throttled used here but you need to know that it's only a temporary deprioritization of your data connection when you're in a busy area. It may not happen at all depending on how many other customers are using the same towers.

Advanced Messaging features are only between two capable phones using the AT&T network in standard domestic coverage areas. A limit of 10MB is applied for any attachments. Standard text messaging has a 1MB limit for attachments.

Users who activate the free Roam North America feature need to use their phone in the domestic coverage area (U.S, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands) the majority of the time. If 50% or more of your use in a billing period is outside of domestic coverage, your service can be terminated.

AT&T makes it clear up-front about what devices are eligible and exactly how you can use the service. Clarity is great and we appreciate it.

You can use any phone that's compatible with AT&T's network. If you bring your own phone you'll pay a $25 one-time activation fee which is added to your first bill. You can also finance a phone through AT&T and the monthly cost will vary depending on which phone you choose. The AT&T Unlimited plan does not include tax and all the other assorted fees in the price.

This plan does not include stand-alone mobile hotspots (except connected cars), Wireless Home Phone, Wireless Home Phone and Internet, laptops, Timex devices, and ZTE Spro 2 projectors. Users with any of those devices should contact an AT&T representative.

Additional lines can be added to AT&T Unlimited plans. Every line has the same benefits outlined above and the $25 dollar fee applies to each. Here is a pricing breakdown.

Unlimited Plus

  • One line of service on an AT&T Unlimited Plus plan is $90
  • Two lines of service for $145
  • Up to eight additional lines (includes any phone, LTE tablets, LTE hotspots and connected cars) for $20 per line
  • Add a wearable for $10 per month

Unlimited Choice

  • One line of service on an AT&T Unlimited Choice plan is $60
  • Two lines of service for $115
  • Up to eight additional lines (includes any phone, LTE tablets, LTE hotspots and connected cars) for $20 per line
  • Add a wearable for $10 per month

AT&T Unlimited Plan add-ons

You can add a tablet or connected car to your AT&T Unlimited plan for the standard $20 monthly fee or through the AT&T 1GB Tablet plan. This plan offers 1GB of data for your tablet for $10 per month, with overages at $15 per Gigabyte. You can add a wearable (Timex wearables are not eligible) to your plan for $10 a month. You can also add a feature phone or messaging phone to your account for $20 per month.

Secondary perks

AT&T offers a plethora of services and apps to use them. Services include AT&T Drive Mode, AT&T Tablet messaging, AT&T Locker and more. You'll find these apps and plenty more at Google Play.

All AT&T Unlimited Plus customers will get access to HBO through DirecTV Now or HBO Go and existing subscribers to the service through DirecTV will begin receiving it for free. Customers who have Unlimited Plus but not HBO or DirecTV get a $25 monthly credit that can be put towards the service.

Last but not least, AT&T also offers services tailored to business owners. Business Messenger, Global IP Client and more make it easier to merge your physical office with your virtual office. You'll find the apps in Google Play and you can get more information by calling 800.331.0500 or visiting an AT&T store.

Xiaomi brings Mi A1 and Mi Mix 2 to Europe

Mi Mix 2 + Mi A1

Xiaomi's latest handsets arrive in Europe, with a Spanish launch for its Android One device and bezelless flagship phone.

At a launch event in Madrid, Spain, Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has unveiled its first major products for the European market. The Android One-powered Mi A1, as well as the bezelless Mi Mix 2, will be coming to Spain this month, along with an eclectic range of other products, ranging from the Mi Electric Scooter to the Android TV-powered Mi Box 4K media player.

Mi Mix 2

The Mi Mix 2, launched in India last month, packs a 5.99-inch, 18:9 panel into an extremely svelte body, and is powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 chip. In our review of the Indian version of the phone, AC's Harish Jonnalagadda called it "an easy recommendation if you're looking for a sub-$600 phone that manages to stand out."

Xiaomi makes a big entrance into the European market with two major phones, an electric scooter and other gadgets.

Mi A1

The Mi A1 brings the best of Xiaomi's hardware and Google's Android One software in an affordable handset with dual camera features. It's powered by a Snapdragon 625 processor, and boasts dual 12-megapixel rear cameras, one with telephoto capabilities. It'll ship on the Nougat version of Android One, updating to Oreo in early 2018.

In addition, Xiaomi's new product lineup for Spain includes the Mi Electric Scooter, a €350 vehicle capable of traveling 30km on a single charge, as well as more traditional gadgets. The Mi Box streams 4K video at up to 60fps for €75, and supports the HDR10 standard. The Mi Action Camera 4K shoots 4K video at 30fps through a 135-degree lens for €135. And the Mi Band 2 tracks steps and heart rate, and provides notification alerts in an IP67-rated body for a mere €25.

Today's event marks the first big European product launch for Xiaomi, a company which has so far focused mainly on China and India, and the launch of gadgets beyond phones at Xiaomi's new authorized Mi Stores suggests the brand is serious about building out a presence in Western Europe.

The Mi Mix 2 will launch in Spain for €499, which gets you the 6GB + 64GB version of the phone. The A1 will sell for €229 for the 4GB + 64GB version. They'll be available at two new Mi Stores at La Vaguada and Madrid Xanadú from November 11, before expanding to Xiaomi's online store, AliExpress, Amazon, Carrefour, MediaMarkt and Phone House from November 22. Pre-orders begin at 1pm local time, November 8.
