Legendary phone reviewer explains why the Pixel 2 and iPhone 8's camera scores are flawed

6 days ago   |   By TheBoyGeniusReport

We've seen a barrage of DxOMark camera reviews in the past few weeks, as several high-end smartphones came out, all of them sporting top-of-the-line camera experience. First, the camera pros declared the iPhone 8 Plus to be the best smartphone camera they ever tested. Its score was tied by the Galaxy Note 8 quick after that. Then came the Pixel 2 which took the top spot, according to DxOMark's ranking system.
The problem with assigning scores to camera performance is that it's not an entirely objective endeavor. While you can measure some camera characteristics with precision, there are...

Meet our new favorite wireless charger for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus

If you have an iPhone 8 or an iPhone 8 Plus, you're undoubtedly psyched that Apple finally added wireless charging support. Of course, now you have to find a good wireless charger. There's nothing wrong with going the bargain-basement route. In fact, we highly recommend this $13 wireless charging pad. But if you want something a bit better suited to the sleek design of Apple's new iPhones, definitely check out the Satechi Fast Wireless Charger. It's a beautiful little device that's wrapped in aluminum with a polished, beveled edge to complete the look. It's easily on par with the most...

My first week with iPhone 8 Plus

6 days ago   |   By Computerworld

I've been using an iPhone 8 Plus for over a week. It looks like an iPhone, works like an iPhone, and delivers on everything it promises - just like every other iPhone before it since the first one. Authenticity is boring
I'm going to try to share a few thoughts about the new device, but I'm going to skip the technical details you can read in Apple's press release. In the quest for “authenticity,” today's critics are paid to be harsh, controversial and incorrect. That's certainly been the reaction to the all-new iPhone 8/Plus smartphones, and it's really quite clear many of them are “...
