    Default Twitter Blue relaunches, Musk plans to increase maximum tweet length t

    Early in its life Twitter was defined by its 140 character limit (an artifact of supporting SMS as a way to distribute tweets). This was increased to 280 characters five years ago and the cap will go even even higher – probably for a price.This is part of the relaunch of Twitter Blue, which is set to include several colors of checkmarks. The familiar blue checkmark will appear for accounts that have undergone a review process (the specifics of which are unclear). Then there will be gold checkmarks for businesses and gray checkmarks for government officials and organizations.The blue...

    The best portrait camera is attached to a quirky smartphone
    It shouldn't surprise you that we're big photography fans at GSMArena. Most of us had a dedicated camera with a so-called portrait lens attached that we'd lug around on trips. But as smartphone cameras got better and their photos got better, those dedicated cameras slowly faded into the background, and we stopped carrying them around.Then, circa 2016, Apple made something called Portrait Mode mainstream with the announcement of the iPhone 7 Plus and suddenly every phone was now making portrait photos with software-assisted bokeh. That was over six years ago, and those portrait mode shots...

    Formovie THEATER 4K UST projector review
    What is an ultra-short-throw projector, and why would you want one?An ultra-short-throw projector or UST is one that needs very little space between it and the projection surface to cast a large format image. This is achieved via ultra-wide lenses and light source and lens arrangement that can be quite challenging to pull off. Generally a projector needs to have a throw ratio of less than 0.4:1 to qualify as UST.This kind of setup is desirable for a number of reasons. First, there is the question of space. With a traditional projector, you need a pretty big room to get a decent size...

    Weekly poll results: Honor 80 Pro and Magic Vs well liked, Honor 80 and 80 SE get the cold shoulder
    A few months ago, the Honor 70 launched in Europe, and it received a warm welcome in our polls. Now, we're already talking about the Honor 80 series – which hasn't reached Europe yet, but it is coming. Are people excited? Yes and no. More specifically, yes to the Honor 80 Pro, and no to the vanilla and SE models.Technically, there is no Pro+ this generation, but the Honor 80 Pro almost fills that niche with its Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. Well, almost, because a telephoto lens would have been nice to see. We suppose the higher resolution 160MP sensor makes up for that partially with...

    Flashback: the multiple times that 3D phones failed to catch on
    After a hiatus of 13 years Avatar is back in cinemas – the original movie revolutionized the industry and transformed 3D from a gimmick to a must-have for each and every blockbuster. But what happened once a 3D movie left the silver screen and was released on Blu-ray? The rise in popularity of 3D movies created a need for TVs that could play them in the comfort of your own home.Except this version of events doesn’t tell the whole story, 3D is much older than Avatar. Seriously, the first color movie came out in 1908, the first stereoscopic 3D movie was out in 1922 (or perhaps earlier)....

    Weekly poll: is the Xiaomi 13 Pro your next flagship? What about the vanilla Xiaomi 13?

    Weekly poll results: Realme 10 Pro+ gets some love, 10 Pro falls flat
    The results from last week’s poll are in and it doesn’t look good for the Realme 10 Pro. The Realme 10 Pro+, however, has a real shot at stardom. Even though their names differ by only one character the two phones are different from one another in ways that matter.The Realme 10 Pro+ stood out in our review (also video review) with its bright, color-accurate screen, with (for the first time in the series) a premium-looking curved display. The rear cameras were another plus as they performed well both during the day and at night (though the selfie cam isn't all that good)We were...

    Asus Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition review
    Asus sent its first laptop - the P6300 - into space to MIR Space Station 25 years ago, and to commemorate this achievement, the Taiwanese tech giant launched the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition (UX5401ZAS). It is basically a version of the regular Zenbook 14X OLED (UX5401) coming with a Space-themed design, accessories, and packaging.Those extras also mean you pay more for the Space Edition than the regular model. And while that futuristic design and fancy accessories may appeal to Space enthusiasts, is it good enough to entice mainstream users? I used the Asus Zenbook 14X OLED Space...

    It was a challenging year for phone makers as chip shortages and factory shutdowns wreaked havoc on the supply chain. Even Apple was affected, although less than many of its rivals, which allowed it to shine in a big way.

Apple is one of the more predictable companies in the tech world, which causes us to take Cupertino’s technological brilliance for granted sometimes. All things considered Apple had a good year.

    Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro+ unboxing and first impressions
    Xiaomi unveiled the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ in China last October, which will debut in India tomorrow alongside the Redmi Note 12 and Redmi Note 12 Pro (no plans yet for the Explorer Edition).

    Weekly poll results: the Redmi K60 series is off to a strong start
    Judging by last week’s poll, the Redmi K60 series is off to a strong start. Judging by the first sales report, we can conclude the same. Some models of the trio are more popular than others, of course.The Redmi K60 Pro is the fan favorite, no surprise here. It received a lot of positive attention and it seems like it can draw people away from pricier flagships.It’s not fully equipped to fight at the highest level, the lack of a telephoto lens and an IP rating hold it back, but it also has the lowest price of any Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 phone currently.

    Weekly poll: does OnePlus 11's aggressive pricing make it the right flagship for you?
    OnePlus has officially gone back to the one flagship strategy – there is only the OnePlus 11 this round. Admittedly, the OnePlus 10 non-Pro never materialized, but dropping “pro” from the name of the 11-series flagship makes it official. Well, is this the one and only flagship you want or did the company miss the mark?Before we put it to a vote, let’s take a closer look at how number 11 compares to the OnePlus 10 Pro and the 9 Pro. We will start with the similarities. The display is still a 6.7” AMOLED panel with QHD+ resolution and a 1-120Hz refresh rate, though this time it uses a new...

    Flashback: USB-C, the one cable to rule them all
    The battle for the smartphone wired connector is over and USB-C is the way forward. This multi-function port can do just about everything – it can charge devices, transfer data, handle audio and video output, it even lets you plug in accessories.How did we get here? Well, for years now the European Union has been trying to coax electronics manufacturers into settling on a common standard to avoid the mess (and waste) that proprietary connectors create. Early on microUSB was the connector of choice, but with the arrival of USB Type C, or USB-C for short, the industry shifted over to the...

    Disassembly video shows the Redmi K60 and K60 Pro are very similar on the inside

Here’s WekiHome’s detailed disassembly that reveals some interesting similarities between the Redmi K60 and the K60 Pro.As it turns out, the two phones are as similar as possible, likely as a way to simplify the assembly process. The Pro model uses a larger sensor (1/1.49” IMX890) than the vanilla model (1/2” OV64B40), so Xiaomi used a plastic bracket around K60’s camera to adjust its dimensions.Another big difference between...
