Samsung dropped some big product bombs at its Galaxy Unpacked event this year. The Galaxy Z Flip turns smartphone design on its head and the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s camera borders on insane, but somehow it was the Galaxy Buds+ announcement that most caught me off guard. I knew they were coming, but I had no idea Samsung had managed to increase battery life to 11 hours per charge, nor that they would play for an hour off of just three minutes of charging. Talk about a game-changer! … [Read more...] about Apple AirPods Pro vs. Samsung Galaxy Buds+

There is a difference in battery capacity. The Pixel 3a has a 3,000mAh battery and the Pixel 3a XL has a 3,700mAh battery. In everyday use, you may not see much of a difference because the 3a XL has a bigger screen to power, but we can confirm it does last a little longer. It lasted 10 hours and 45 minutes in our battery test, as opposed to 9 hours and 12 minutes for the Pixel 3a. We found that battery life was a real Achilles’ heel for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL, so we’re glad to see Google expanding the capacities in the 3a range. … [Read more...] about Google Pixel 3a vs Pixel 3a XL: What’s the difference and which best suits you?

Display The Pixel 3a has a 5.6-inch screen with a 2,220 x 1,080-pixel resolution. The Nokia 7.1 has an LCD screen with a resolution of 2,280 x 1,080 pixels. The Moto G7 has the biggest screen at 6.2 inches, also an LCD panel, and it has a resolution of 2,270 x 1,080 pixels. There’s very little difference here in terms of sharpness, but because the Pixel 3a has an OLED screen it has much deeper blacks than the other two. The Nokia 7.1 is the only one to boast HDR10 support, which will impress with the right content from Netflix or Amazon, but OLED is simply superior to LCD so the Pixel 3a screen is the best option here. … [Read more...] about Google Pixel 3a vs Nokia 7.1 vs Moto G7: Budget phones get better and better
