  • In-display fingerprint sensor launching first on a Vivo phone

    Vivo will be the first smartphone to use the Clear ID FS9500.

    On December 12, Synaptics (one of the biggest names in the biometric industry) announced that it was finally ready to start mass-producing the first-ever fingerprint sensor that’s hidden underneath a smartphone display. Synaptics initially said that this technology would first be available on a smartphone from one of the “top 5” OEMs, and we now know that that OEM is none other than Vivo.

    Synaptics is using its new Clear ID FS9500 sensor to make this all possible, and according to Forbes reporter Patrick Moorhead, using the new sensor is “fast and simple.” The sensor doesn’t actually turn on until you’re ready to use it to help conserve battery life, and when you do go to unlock your phone, you’ll see a fingerprint icon near the bottom of your phone’s display.

    Just put your finger on this icon (that OEMs can customize the look of) and your phone will be unlocked with the same level of security and convenience we’ve come…

  • Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL — which one should you choose?

    Our forum users help answer the question of Pixel 2 vs Pixel 2 XL.

    As different as they may look at first glance, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL share far more similarities compared to the differences that set them apart. Both phones have the same cameras, processor, front-facing speakers, and software experience, but there are two key areas where they differ – display and battery life.

    One individual recently reached out to our forum community asking whether they should go for the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL, and these are some of the top answers.

    It really just comes down to screen size. If you want one handed use, get the Pixel 2. If you like a bigger display, get the 2 XL.

  • Daniel’s Favorite Things of 2017

    Daniel’s Favorite Tech of 2017

    2017 was a great year for tech — and for drinking great coffee. Here are a few of my favorite ways to enjoy both.

    Google Pixel 2

    There have been many negative things written about Google’s Pixel 2 since its October launch, but like many things on the internet, much of it is overblown or outright wrong. The reality is that, for me at least, the Pixel 2 is the best phone I’ve ever used. It does everything I need it to do, and does it quickly, reliably, and continuously for many hours at a time. Android 8.x and HTC’s hardware combine for an unimpeachable experience: from solid call quality (on VoLTE) to consistent data speeds, excellent speaker sound, reliable Bluetooth and all the other things the initial Pixel was dinged for, I can’t remember the last time I just picked up a phone and forgot about the phone. Except when I open the camera — then I remember how phenomenal Google’s software is. At $649, this is a must-buy.

  • Google has added text to the Pixel Launcher search box for some, and nobody wants it

    Google is no stranger to testing both warranted and unwarranted design changes in its apps on normal users, so this comes as no surprise. This time Google is testing a small change to the Pixel Launcher, but it’s one that nobody asked for, and seemingly nobody wants it either.

    Someone at Google must think that people need reminding what the search box does. Not content with putting it prominently within reach of everyone’s thumb at the bottom of the launcher, Google is now toying with putting text inside that reads either “Search apps and web…” or simply “Search…” – just in case you had no idea what it’s for.

  • Rakuten seeking to acquire spectrum rights to create its own mobile network in Japan

    Rakuten, the increasingly diversifying Japanese e-commerce giant, is looking to establish its own independent mobile network. The company intends to apply for part of the 1.7GHz and 3.4GHz spectrum rights in Japan when the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications opens applications for those frequencies early next year. Presently, Rakuten operates an MVNO using leased capacity from market leader NTT Docomo. Alongside second and third-place carriers au and SoftBank, the three companies effectively hold control of the Japanese mobile network.
