Motorola’s 2019 cheap smartphone lineup includes a 5000mAh battery option

By Ron Amadeo

Today, Motorola is announcing the new Moto G series for 2019: the Moto G7 family. There are three devices to take a look at: the Moto G7, the Moto G7 Power, and the Moto G7 Play. Along with the phones from Nokia, members of the G series are among those rare smartphones that can be had for under $400, and that makes them pretty interesting.

We were able to spend some hands-on time with all of them, but before we get into the details, let’s load up a big ol’ spec sheet and talk numbers.

At first the spec sheet seems fine. We’ve got easy $50 increments between devices, and while the SoC always stays the same, more expensive devices get better screens, more RAM, more storage and better cameras. Then we get to the battery section and things get crazy. The more expensive device has a smaller battery!

Apple to replace unresponsive iPhone X touchscreens for free

If you’ve had problems with the touch responsiveness of your iPhone X’s display, you may be in luck. According to a support document, Apple identified a problem with some iPhone X devices that may cause a component of the display module to fail. The company has now launched a program to replace affected screens for free.

Apple claims that failed display components have caused touch response issues on some iPhone X devices. Parts, or all of, affected displays may not respond to touch input, or in some cases, they may only respond intermittently. In other instances, displays react to touch even when they have not been touched.

Under the repair program, users can go to Apple or to an authorized service provider to get an iPhone X examined. If they verify that the device is eligible for the repair, the display module will be replaced free of charge.

Dell’s newest monitor is a 49-inch, dual QHD, curved behemoth

By Valentina Palladino

Valentina Palladino

Ultra-wide monitors are overwhelming yet impressive to behold, and Dell thinks it has made one that will appeal to all types of professionals. The new U4919DW UltraSharp 49-inch curved monitor nods to the massive gaming monitors made by Samsung, MSI, and others, but it adds a workplace spin while upping the resolution to QHD.

Dell describes the U4919DW as the equivalent of two 27-inch monitors stuck together, and its dual mode cements that comparison. Users can fill the entire screen with their desired programs, or they can split it down the middle so the display literally looks like a beast with two heads—two different screens sitting side by side on a single stand.

What to expect from Google’s hardware event: Pixel 3, Pixel Slate, and more

By Ron Amadeo

The third annual Google hardware extravaganza is kicking off in just a few days. On October 9 at 11am, Google will show off its next flagship smartphone, the Pixel 3, along with a few other products. The new Pixel phone is usually the headline launch at these hardware events, but Google often announces four or five other products alongside the new phone.

Last year, we saw the Pixel 2, the Chrome OS-powered Pixelbook, the Google Home Mini and Google Home Max, a new version of the Daydream View VR headset, the Google Pixel Buds, and a dead-on-arrival AI camera called “Google Clips.”

The year before saw the Pixel 1, Google Home, Chromecast Ultra, the first Daydream View, and Google Wi-Fi. Most of the leaks and rumors hint at sequels to some of these products.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Gooseneck Mount Work Around – If It Was a Snake It Would Have Bit Me!

By Tim

The other day I received my desk edge mounted gooseneck mouse  accessory. I did a video, posted an article here and the only open question was how to mount the smartphone with the holder being vertical and the phone being horizontal.

I did mention I was going to need to shim it somehow. While my current phone has a center positioned camera, future phones will more than likely have them to the left or right.

So I was still searching about for a good solid shim device and I spotted one from my seat here in front of the PC.

I realized that my tablet charger for either my Chuwi HiBook or Hi12 was just the right width!

So without further explanation, below you will find the video.

That is all for now, except please subscribe to our channel or click those big donation buttons on the website here!
