OnePlus 5 review

When the OnePlus 5 was announced, the new dual-camera module was lauded as being one of the best in the business. One of the key features of the new camera design was the introduction of a telephoto zoom lens, which allowed for a new 2x zoom feature cell phone battery wholesale .

However, OnePlus has since clarified that this isn’t actually optical zoom, as you’d expect from a telephoto lens. Instead, it’s only 1.6x optical zoom, with the remaining 0.4x “realised through SmartCapture multi frame technology”.

Here’s the relevant tweet chain from OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei:

So what does this mean? Well, optical zoom is a physical action within the camera, whereby you get a true and lossless zoom. The alternative is a digital zoom, which is effectively enlarging the image using software to give the impression of a zoom. So 0.4x of the OnePlus 5’s claimed 2x zoom is actually just a simple software trick, rather than the real optical zoom that’s so prized by photographers.

It’s a shame – and will come as a surprise to many – because it seems confusing to advertise 2x zoom with a dedicated 2x jump in the camera app, only to really be offering 1.6x zoom.

For comparison, Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus wholesale iPhone parts also offers 2x zoom, but it’s an entirely optical system that utilises the telephoto lens included in the dual-camera module.

Still, most reviewers seem generally impressed with the OnePlus 5’s camera performance, and given the phone’s lowly starting price of £449, it’s arguably much better value for money than the pricey iPhone 7 Plus.

Galaxy S8 for early access

I can't tell you how excited I was to see that the Bixby Voice preview had hit my unlocked Galaxy S8. There was a bit of a language barrier between the two of us in the beginning, but after a bit of fumbling with Google Translate and a bit of digging into the settings, Bixby is now ready to use on my device.

Droid-Life posted earlier today about the Bixby Voice preview going live to those who had signed up for the Early Access Program last week. Coupled with the strange little update I received this week on the Galaxy S8, I was curious about whether that meant Bixby was on its way to my device wholesale iPhone parts .

Lo and behold, it appeared in the settings right after I'd updated my apps through the Galaxy Apps store, as Droid-life had originally suggested. I went through the setup process in Korean and then switched it to English from the settings.

Once you have access, you'll see an entirely new subset of options populate the Bixby settings panel. They include the ability to have Bixby "wake up" to the sound of your voice, as well as whether you want messages read aloud in high-quality audio. There is also a dictation option, and you can choose how terse or explanatory Bixby is once it fulfills a command.

At present, you can choose from three voices for Bixby through the preview. Two of them speak exclusively in Korean and will require that you understand the language for it to be effective. The other is Bixby's female voice for the English-speaking audience. There are also video tutorials you can watch in case you're totally lost on what it is that Bixby is supposed to do.

To make Bixby work, press and hold the dedicated button on the left side of the Galaxy S8 until you see the Bixby prompt pop up on the screen, then speak your command. I haven't been able to get this particular feature to work in the interim, however, and I'm not entirely sure why, since Bixby has had no trouble recognizing my voice after I registered it.

There are definitely a couple of kinks that need to be worked out, not to mention a whole host of new options to parse through. For now, if you signed up for last week's preview access, keep checking your cell phone battery wholesale until the update hits.

LG G7: What's the story so far

LG was one of the first to release a flagship smartphone in 2017 with the G6. It's a great phone parts wholesale with plenty going for it including a brilliant camera, excellent display and all-screen design.

Nothing ever stands still in the tech world though, especially not when it comes to the star smartphones. Here we are rounding up everything we have heard so far about the LG G7. Stay tuned and keep checking back as there will no doubt be plenty of rumours over the next few months.

LG G7: What's the story so far?

LG G7: Release date

The LG G5 was announced at Mobile World Congress 2016, while the LG G6 was announced a year later at MWC 2017 and both were available to buy around April of the same year they were announced. An educated guess would therefore suggest the LG G7 will be announced during the Barcelona show at the end of February 2018 and go on sale around April 2018.

That might not be the case though. Reports from Korea have claimed the forthcoming flagship might appear a little earlier than expected in order to give the company more time to sell devices before competitor devices arrive, such as the Samsung Galaxy S9.

Apparently the LG G7 is already in development and it could be announced at CES 2018, which takes place at the beginning of January in Las Vegas. We are a long way off from these dates though and plenty could change so don't get too excited just yet.

LG G7: Design

The LG G6 brought with it a fabulous redesign compared to the modular misfire of the LG G5. Like the Samsung Galaxy S8, the G6 offers a large screen, minimal bezels and a premium, solid build.

We'd expect the LG G7 to follow in the G6's footsteps. Naturally there will no doubt be a few tweaks here and there, but we suspect many of the same principals will be followed, including the large screen in a minimal footprint format.

The G6 features a circular fingerprint sensor on the rear, along with a dual-camera setup and unlike the Samsung Galaxy S8, there is no iris scanner on the front. We wouldn't be too surprised to see a fingerprint embedded into the display for the G7, something rumoured for the iPhone 8 phone spare parts , and we'd also hope to see iris scanning capabilities included on the 2018 flagship too.
