The Lenovo Z5 Pro GT has an absurd 12GB RAM, 512GB storage, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855

2018 has been a year marked by several trends. We've seen the rise of notches, which employ a screen cutout for the camera sensors, earpiece, and other sensors.

LG reportedly working with Lenovo on a 13-inch tablet with a foldable display

Foldable devices are talked about a lot, but so far we haven't really seen a real consumer product with this functionality. Sure, there have been devices that technically fold, but they do it with 2 displays side-by-side. An actual single display that folds has been a bit of a unicorn. Samsung, among others, is working...

The Motorola Moto G lineup has always been popular in the lower mid-range price segment. This year, however, the Moto G6 series falls behind its competitors in terms of specifications and value. In the face of strong competition from the likes of Xiaomi, Asus, Honor, and Realme, Motorola has failed to stand apart in this...
