This is the cheapest 5G smartphone right now

Almost two years ago, when 5G was just starting to arrive at the masses, all manufacturers announced that 5G-capable smartphones will cost significantly more due to the more complex components and manufacturing process needed. It was a time when it was even speculated that a 5G device could cost up to $350 more than the 4G equivalent. Fast-forward to 2020 when 5G is starting to be truly adopted and we see that this is not really the case. Yes, flagship…

Things are not looking well for Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s CFO. She is being held imprisoned in Canada since her arrest in December 2018 and trialed for allegedly selling information and tech to Iran. The Supreme Court of British Columbia has ruled that the case met the “double criminality” standard and she can be further trialed and extradited to the US.

Yes, OnePlus is making affordable smartphones again

We all remember the good old days when OnePlus was making flagship killer devices, smartphones that had specs almost as good as top-of-the-line releases in that year but at almost half the price.

Realme X3 SuperZoom looses 5G for better cameras

Let’s face it! Even though the push for 5G is well undergoing, for now few locations have access to it and things won’t change that much in the next year or so. That is why for most people, 5G connectivity is not only something they can leave without, it is something that they do not wish due to the extra cost that it involves. Realme had the same idea and that is why it released a high-end smartphone without 5G…
