OnePlus 5 Review: Should You Buy It?

OnePlus 5: The Latest by OnePlus
Odd right? The last OnePlus phone was the OnePlus 3T. So why not OnePlus 4 now? Well, it's because of tetraphobia. Because of that, many Chinese products avoid the number 4 similar to the OnePlus 5. You can think of the OnePlus 3T as the 4, though, if you want.

OnePlus 5 has undergone a major design makeover with its dual camera coming to the scene.

The OnePlus 5 has the major of its design cues borrowed from the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, starting from the camera setup to even the positioning of the microphone beside the lenses. Had the logo on the back of the OnePlus 5 been replaced by an Apple logo, anyone could have mistaken it for a matte black iPhone 7 Plus. The device looks like a hell of a stunner now.

The OnePlus 5 is now powered by the new Snapdragon 835 chipset which is currently available in most of the flagships. What is not however, available nowadays is the massive 8 GB of RAM (no other smartphone packs such high memory) matched by 128 GB of i…

Leak Suggests Google Pixel 2 May Have a Big Design Flaw

There's some news about the Google Pixel 2
Who doesn't love the Google Pixel? With stock Android and an amazing design, the phone was near perfect. Of course, like all other phones, it too had its own share of cons, but overall, the phone was a masterpiece. Now that, the Pixel 2 is on the way, there is a leak that suggests the Pixel 2 is going to repeat a design flaw that may not be so welcome among the general masses.

The Pixel and Pixel XL had an excellent design but their big bezels at the top and bottom felt quite odd to look at. Now that, Google has partnered with LG and both LG and Samsung had made stunning flagships which had little to none bezels, most expected the Pixel 2 would have very little bezels too. But then there's the leak!
What's the leak?S1 and M1 were the codenames of the Pixel and Pixel XL. But a Japanese blog HTC Soku has discovered that the system files of HTC U11 phone had mentions of S2 and M2. This signifies that most probably the Google Pixel 2…

Xbox or PS4: Why not Both? Welcome the XStation

Xbox vs PlayStation Argument ends with this article!
Well, not literally!

Since the dawn of Sony’s PlayStation and Microsoft’s Xbox, it has plagued the internet world with debates on which one is better (apart from the PC vs Console argument too!) Well, unless you are a PC gamer like me (I am not saying PC is better or not better; for God’s sake enough of that argument), you may have to choose between one of these two top tier consoles at one point of time or another.

While both these consoles have their pros and cons, (about which the posts on Xbox One vs PS4 and Xbox One S vs PS4 Slim may prove to have sufficient info), one guy has provided gamers a third choice, or fourth actually.
Introducing the Hybrid Xstation!
Ed, better known as EdsJunk who spends his spare time ripping apart consoles and modifying them, making them more portable is the creator of this machine.

This project of his lays to rest the second biggest debates in gaming by combining two gaming consoles of the opposite camp…

No more casual games for Mobile; Razer's coming!
Razer, a brand whose name is known by most gamers is a gaming company which produces gaming laptops and computing peripherals like gaming mice, keyboards, and headphones. While it is at the top at what it does, according to recent statements by the company’s CEO Tan Min-liang, it seems that they are going to change course or to be more exact, they are going to get expand their business, and that too by entering the mobile gaming industry. (Related: Razer Blade Pro Review: Great,but should you buy it?)
The CEO Tan Min-liang stated that mobile gaming is “going to be a huge part of out business”. Tan also said that Razer had an enormous opportunity to disrupt the mobile market as there were no such mobile device or software platform which allows complete fulfillment of the needs of a mobile gamer.
We could have gotten a hint of this already as Razer occupied Android gaming company Ouya in 2015 and Nextbit, the latter being the more latest a…

Facebook's AI Bots Create their Own Language: A Huge Progress for Artificial Intelligence

AI Chat Bots Anyone?
Facebook is always on the news. While the huge multinational company is managed by just a small team, most of its work is done by Artficial Intelligence bots. These AI software are headed by researchers from Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research Lab (FAIR) and it is they who made this astounding discovery!

These researchers had left the A.I chat bots (better known as dialogue agents) to conversate freely between themselves, using machine learning algorithms so that their conversational skills would better. After some time, the FAIR researchers discovered that the chat bots had started deviating from the normal speech and had started talking with each other in an entirely new language. This language that they had created, was done without any human interference, script or help at all.

While this exercise was done to improve the chat bots’ skill at normal conversation with humans, it seems their language was not one meant for humans!

Anyhow, that’s not all. The FAIR…

Don't Expect Samsung's On-Screen Fingerprint Scanner in the Note 8

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will leave out on the in-screen fingerprint scanner!
Samsung’s upcoming Note 8 is creating a lot of hype among consumers worldwide, with rumors, leaks and reports on the upcoming device increasing with every passing day.
However, if you were one of those guys who were expecting an in-screen fingerprint scanner technology to be featured in the Galaxy Note 8, you may be up for a disappointment. The reason behind that is, an insider from Samsung has claimed that the technology causes imbalance in the phone display’s brightness.
According to recent tests, the area which contains the fingerprint scanner is much brighter than the other parts of the screen. Due to this problem, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 may most probably, not have the in-screen fingerprint scanner.
However, according to recent rumors, you may expect this tech in the Galaxy S9 though! After the incidents of Samsung Note 7’s batteries catching fire, Samsung has stepped up several additional security checks for…
