4
By

Following the Google Pixel 6 series launch in October 2021, the company announced its mid-range Pixel 6a at Google I/O 2022. Despite its lower price, the Pixel 6a packs many of the same features and specs as the Pixel 6. So, should you buy the Pixel 6a and save some money instead? Or is the bigger Pixel worth the additional $149? Here's how the two phones match up.

Amazon gives us the power to late-night shop as we please. However, that may not always be a good thing. Because of this, we may occasionally make impulse purchases and later regret scrolling through our wishlist.

There have been deals on Samsung phones just about everywhere these last two days, not just at Amazon, and as Amazon starts selling out of some sizes and colors, Samsung's own website seems to be picking up the slack — and for the next few hours, you can take an extra $100 off the Galaxy S22 series and current Z series simply by clicking on a live stream of nothing.

Why #DearNothing was trending after the Nothing event

Nothing India pushes back against false accusations of discrimination

Nothing's pre-launch strategy of slowly trickling out details for the Phone 1 has done wonders for its hype cycle. Combined with the fact that many of the initial hands-on reviews for the phone seem positive, it seems like the company is headed for a solid launch of its first phone. Unfortunately, mere hours after the launch event, things quickly turned sour when Nothing found itself in the midst of another controversy, all surrounding #DearNothing going viral on Twitter.

Forget the OnePlus 10 Pro — the OnePlus 9 series drops to its lowest price yet for Prime Day

In the US, OnePlus smartphones are not in the same league of the best Android phones as Google's Pixel lineup or Samsung's Galaxy S series. But they offer excellent value for money, and if you are on a tight budget, OnePlus offerings can be hard to ignore. For Prime Day, Amazon is discounting the OnePlus 9 series to their lowest-ever price, making them an irresistible deal to miss. Thanks to the discount, you can get last year's OnePlus 9 for $500—down from $730.

The world may be clamoring for high-end smartphones, or hype beasts like the Nothing Phone 1, but players like HMD Global still make feature phones for markets where people check prices before the spec sheet. Developing compelling phones that remain very affordable is a challenging task, but Nokia still manages to give us plenty of reasons to pay attention to its ongoing efforts. The company recently launched three new feature phones worldwide, one of which features a very cool oddity: an integrated case for true-wireless earphones.

Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra

The Galaxy S22 series is the cheapest it's ever been this week, thanks in no small part to some killer Prime Day deals that brought prices down as much as $360 off. If you're still holding out, though, you might just be rewarded for your patience. Last week, we discovered Samsung was working on a purple Galaxy S22, coating one of the best Android phones around in an all-new paint color. If you've been dying to see what this shade might look like before pulling the trigger on this week's deals, you're in luck.

Nothing's obnoxious Phone 1 marketing is vital for its success, the Xiaomi 12 Lite proves

The Xiaomi 12 Lite just launched with all the right specs, but none of the storytelling

While Nothing was busy hyping up its Phone 1 launch for the last half year, Xiaomi released phone after phone, covering almost all price points you could imagine. The latest in line might just be the perfect contender to the Nothing Phone 1, save for the lack of an intriguing transparent back with lighting effects. The Xiaomi 12 Lite comes with a similar boxy design, a slightly lower price, and comparable specs — basically making you question what’s supposed to be so special about the Nothing Phone 1.

Asus Zenfone 9 launch date

Want a compact flagship Android phone? Asus shows off its next Zenfone on July 28

The Zenfone 9 could be the best compact Android flagship to launch this year

Asus's ROG Phone series might hog all the limelight with a focus on crazy specs and design, but its Zenfone lineup has also garnered quite the fan base with a tack toward more stylish selling points. At one point, the lineup was known for its unique camera module that could flip from back to front. Last year, though, the Taiwanese tech firm redoubled on the basics by launching the Zenfone 8, emphasizing high-class in a relatively small size. For 2022, there's plenty to look forward to in the Zenfone 9 — on which the company accidentally spilled the beans last week — and you won't have to wait too long from now to buy it.

The leaks and teasers leading up to the Nothing Phone 1’s launch left little to the imagination, except perhaps the flashing lights on the back and details related to the availability. The Phone 1 was officially released in several markets yesterday, including the UK, the EU, Japan, and India, but not the US. While we are still getting acquainted with Carl Pei’s latest smartphone, nothing is stopping you from decking up your device with Nothing’s latest wallpapers meant for the Phone 1.

The Motorola Razr 2022 will look very different from its predecessors

Riding on nostalgia can only get you so far

4
By

While Samsung is largely credited for kicking off the foldable phone age, Motorola also rode the wave early on. It wowed the public with the Razr — a phone that promised a glimpse at the future while also paying homage to the legendary RAZR V3 from 2004. While its nostalgia-fueled marketing approach was effective and helped Motorola land headlines, it struggled to keep up once Samsung came out with its own Galaxy Z Flip lineup. Motorola's second-gen unit, the Razr 5G, failed to woo users, so it looks like the Razr 2022 will abandon the nostalgia and come with a radically different look.

The best budget Android phones for 2022

You don't have to pay through the nose to get a decent phone these days

Not too long ago, buying a budget smartphone meant you were probably in for a bad time: crummy performance, paltry update support, and maybe even Micro-USB charging. These days, not so much: some of the best budget Android phones start under 200 bucks, and they're not that different from the best Android flagship phones. Here, we've assembled a list of six of our favorite low-cost options.

Comparison shopping between phone brands is a lot simpler than comparing two different models from the same company, and that's especially true with the latest Pixel 6 series. We reviewed both the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, and they aren't just bigger and smaller versions of each other; there are a few noteworthy differences between the two. To help you make your own purchasing decision (if you haven't already), we've both a detailed spec-by-spec comparison and our own assessment from having personally used both devices back-to-back.

Google's Pixel 6 lineup offers immense value for money—you get top-notch performance, a great display, excellent software support, and an envious camera setup. The latest Pixel phones can deliver all this while still being a few hundred dollars cheaper than other Android flagships. Ahead of Prime Day, Amazon placed two of the best Android phones on the market on sale, offering discounts of as much as $200. While the best deal between the two has already sold out, you aren't out of luck just yet.

Gaze at LG’s rollable phone that could have been in new hands-on video

The prototype appears to be in surprisingly usable condition… sort of

For every new company like Nothing that launches its first phone, it feels like we lose one of the older players in the market, and back in 2021, LG felt compelled to pull the plug on its smartphone business for a bunch of reasons — including some disappointingly low sales. However, shuttering a multi-billion-dollar enterprise isn’t as simple as flipping a light switch, and the company ended up scrapping several in-development prototype phones in the process — selling some of that hardware to employees for dirt-cheap prices. Now, over a year later, one of the very cool-looking LG Rollable prototypes has resurfaced online to show its stuff.
