Why I'd pick Samsung's notched tablet over Apple's notched laptop

Oct 7, 2022

Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra – is finally official, glorious notch and all, it made me think whether I'd choose that over Apple's latest MacBook Pro, which features a suspiciously similar notch. In the exact same spot, on a very closely-sized 14-inch display… But hey, whatever Samsung's inspiration may or may not have been to go this route… Releasing a huge tablet with a notch after famously mocking Apple for the iPhone notch a few years ago, in an ad that was later removed… We won't be gettin ...read more

Feb 14, 2022, 12:22 AM 2 HMD today has unveiled the sequel to the Nokia G20 and not surprisingly, it is called the Nokia G21.

YouTube TV finally brings picture-in-picture to iPhones and iPads

Oct 7, 2022

Feb 11, 2022, 5:18 PM 4 The rivalry between Apple and Google goes beyond just competing for new customers and turning them into loyal users. Every time one has the chance to prevent or delay the other from keeping its customers on par with the latest features offered via a service, they immediately take it. That’s the main reason YouTube TV users on Android and iOS don’t have the same features, although they’re using the same service provided by Google. One of the ...read more

Easily repairable Galaxy S22 and iPhone 14: Android and Apple could make it happen, but...

As someone who's been involved with primary and secondary smartphone research/experiences for about ten years now, I've noticed a pattern that has to do with my level of nerdiness. Pre-PhoneArena times, I've had my fair share of nerdy periods, which could last months or even years. I'd do research on smartphones, watch tons of YouTube videos, and simply stay informed… OK, very informed. OK, more informed than Snow in "Informer". Why? Just because. Like most people on the team, Martin, ...read more
