Apple iPhone 14 Plus initial review: Is bigger better?

Apple announced four iPhones during its September event in the form of the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Yep, that’s right, there is no iPhone 14 mini this year. The small and pocketable device has been replaced with a larger form factor, meaning the standard iPhone models now match the iPhone Pro models in terms of their size offerings. So what’s the plus-size standard iPhone like? Well it’s definitely big – and not as cute as the iPhone mini – but it certainly has its advantages. Here are our first impressions. Familiar, but larger design 160.8 x 78.1 x 7.8mm, 203g Aluminium,

The Windows 11 Widget Panel Is Getting Bigger

Windows 11 reintroduced widgets, which are now accessible with a dedicated button on the taskbar. They aren’t all that useful right now, but Microsoft has a few improvements in the works, including a change to the widget panel’s appearance. Microsoft is now rolling out Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25201 to PCs on the Dev Channel of the Windows Insiders program. The main change is that the widgets board can be expanded to fill most of your computer’s screen, instead of the fixed side panel available on most PCs right now. There’s a new button on the top-right corner of the widget board, which switches the board between a side

Xiaomi Mi Band 7 review: Bigger display, higher price, still incredible value

Xiaomi Mi Band 7 Xiaomi has delivered another excellent budget fitness tracker with the Xiaomi Mi Band 7. With a beautiful, always-on display and the same tried and true fit, the latest model will track all your fitness and health basics. It doesn’t make any game-changing advancements over the previous generation and still lacks hot ticket items like onboard GPS and NFC support, but if an affordable tracker is on your shopping list, the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 is still an easy choice. What we like Bigger, brighter displayAccurate resting heart rateContinuous SpO2 monitoringComically huge number of sport modesFun new band colorsSlightly more expensive, still amazing value What we don’t

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 could pack a bigger battery

Although nearly nine months old at this point, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 remains the best compact foldable phone on the market. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 represented a big step up over its predecessor, offering a four times bigger external display, enhanced durability, IPX8 water resistance, and a more palatable price tag. But as much as we like the Galaxy Z Flip 3, there’s one area it falls short compared to other phones: the battery life. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 packed a 3,300mAh battery, and while it delivered good screen on time (SoT) numbers on light to moderate usage, it struggled to last through the day under heavy

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro to arrive with a bigger battery and Wear OS

Samsung for some time has been releasing two versions of its Galaxy Watch every year. This year too, the brand is expected to release two Galaxy Watch 5 models — the Watch 5 and Watch 5 Classic. But now a new report from SamMobile reveals that there could be a third model in the series dubbed Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. The report suggests that the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will carry the model number SM-R925. It is tipped to come with a big 572mAh battery as opposed to the 361mAh on the Galaxy Watch 4. The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro’s large battery leads us to believe that

Apple May Be Testing A Foldable Device Bigger Than An iPhone

Apple May Be Testing A Foldable Device Bigger Than An iPhone Apple is reportedly testing a foldable that will reportedly pack a 9-inch OLED display and will likely be a version of the iPad instead of the iPhone Fold. The latest rumors come courtesy of TFI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who tweeted earlier today that the company was actively testing a 9-inch foldable OLED panel that could go towards the development of an iPad/iPhone hybrid. But the exciting device won’t be hitting the shelves anytime soon. Kuo had originally predicted that a foldable bearing the Apple logo will arrive by the year 2024, but he has now revised those expectations

ONEXPLAYER gaming PC handheld comes with a bigger screen

  Handheld gaming computers are nothing new and there have been quite a few models from different companies, most of them hailing from China, for almost every generation of Intel processors. It isn’t until the 11th-gen Intel “Tiger Lake”, however, that the chip maker’s graphics technology could truly be considered worthy of gaming on its own. Unsurprisingly, there have also been new attempts at putting that Intel chip into more portable forms, and the ONEXPLAYER is not only the latest but also the biggest in that category. One Netbook has long been making small portable computers but has so far focused on laptops or convertible tablets. The closest it got

Poco X3 Pro review: Is bigger better?

The big ol’ beast upon which your eyes are affixed is the Poco X3 Pro: the Xiaomi offshoot’s sub-flagship device, here to tempt you with massive screen, massive battery, and not-so-massive price point. Just a year after the Poco X2 launched, the X3 Pro isn’t exactly an unexpected surprise. But it does cut its own path: its the first device to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 processor, which is all-powerful (basically an 855+ rebadged) but, crucially, drops any 5G modem – and, with that, any battery/cost implication that such connectivity could cause. As such, the Poco X3 Pro is a fairly unique prospect. It’s not quite as flagship grade as
