    I'm not talking about luxury brands retreating to Wear OS to fend off the Apple Watch, though there will certainly be more of those... I'm talking about two famous brands that will be going smart their own way. Kinda.

    Wareable has a new feature on what's in the pipeline for 2019. I've cut out the cruft and cut to the chase!

    1. Swatch

    The cheap and cheerful watchmaker has been taking its sweet time (sorry) with its in-house smartwatch platform, Swiss OS. In the works since 2017, Swatch is now saying that it will come to market early next year. The two big draws? Long battery life and "Swiss vault-grade" data protection. Mmkay.

    2. Timex

    This seems less like vapourware to me, since (1) Timex is already making hybrid watches, and (2) they're partnering with Huami for their first proper smartwatch venture. I remain a big fan of my Amazfit Bip, and even if Huami slaps a Timex logo on a new model that'll probably suffice for me.

    If you're more interested in reading how BMW, Puma and other brands will be jumping off a cliff with Wear OS, check the link immediately below.

    This week CNET is taking a trip down memory lane, with a feature article and companion video (above) about the iconic Moto Razr.

    The video is definitely worth a watch, as it features Paul Pierce, who was on the design team for Moto back in the day. What made the RAZR so impossibly thin was a new (at the time) chipset that allowed the circuit board and battery to exist on the same physical plane. But the phone was so thin that its chunky chin was almost a necessity, to give the user something to hold on to while texting on the flush keypad.

    The article is a bit more of a fluff piece, with the author lamenting how he didn't "get" the appeal of the Razr when it was first released. There is, however, one quote that speaks to the lasting impact of Motorola's most famous creation:

    It took the iPhone's introduction in 2007 to really kill it.
    For what it's worth, I can recall being tasked to find a Razr for a friend in the mid-2000s. They were so popular at the time that the only unit I could procure was a grey market import from Spain. I distinctly remember spending an afternoon trying to figure out how to switch the menus to English. Good times...

    You may have noticed the deals on Fitbit's answer to the Apple Watch this holiday season. For example, Amazon.com is currently listing the Versa Special Edition (the one with Fitbit Pay) for $179 USD, almost $60 off the list price of $229.95. And for Canadians, Amazon.ca is listing the same model for $229.95 CAD, a full $70 off its regular $299.95

    So what's the catch?

    Well, if you're on iOS by all accounts you should be fine, but if you're phone is of the Android variety then maybe keep your expectations low. I've already posted about my own experience with the Versa and my OnePlus 5T—mine went straight back to Best Buy after notifications failed and failed hard.

    And it's not just me. From a recent thread on the Fitbit subreddit:

    I bought the Versa direct from Fitbit when it first came out. I paired with my Oneplus 3T and have always had problems with it. I would conservatively say 75% of the time the watch was not syncing or sending over ANY notifications.
    Granted, the OnePlus 3T isn't an officially supported Android device—nor was my 5T, for that matter. So which Android phones are supported? Less than you might think. Buried deep in Fitbit's help pages is a listing of currently compatible Android hardware. From this page find the section Which Devices Are Compatible With the Fitbit app? and then expand the sub-heading marked Android devices.

    One of the phones listed as "fully compatible" is this year's Pixel 3—which this same redditor tried to use with his Versa:

    I recently bought a Pixel 3 which, by definition, runs stock Android OS. Again, watch doesn't sync, watch doesn't show ANY notifications. I have a 100% notification and sync rate with my Pebbles and Wear OS. Fitbit BOUGHT Pebble but they can't figure out bluetooth/syncing/notifications.
    I do find myself missing the great experience I had with the Versa and Fitbit Pay. But every time I'm tempted to buy, I have another look at that reddit thread and talk myself out of it. If you're also an Android user, maybe you should do the same.

    A Windsor, Ontario couple are recovering from a scary experience with Freedom Mobile and their Samsung phones. Kelly Smith observed her partner displaying acute symptoms of a heart attack, and was unable to call for an ambulance from either of their two phones—a Samsung Galaxy A5 and A8.

    She was eventually able to get through, and her partner is currently recovering in a local hospital. About a week later Freedom sent Ms. Smith the text you see above.

    The CRTC has looked in to the issue, and believes it to be specific to the Freedom-branded A5. As the text says, it was likely due to a faulty software update. A technician from Samsung visited to couple to examine their devices; after that came a phone call from a Samsung Canada executive, offering complimentary replacements.

    Since then there has apparently been another software update for the A5, this one promising better 911 performance over LTE. Has anyone here received that update, or the text message from Freedom?

    Sure, it's a limited edition McClaren/OnePlus collab. And yes, it does indeed come with a whopping 10GB of RAM—plus orange accents and a neat carbon fiber effect on the back. But make no mistake, the real story here is BKK Electronics' next-generation fast-charging technology.

    It's already available on another limited edition handset from sister company Oppo (also an exotic car collab). Oppo calls it Super VOOC, and it can completely charge a 3,400mAh battery in just 35 minutes. OnePlus is calling their version Warp Charge 30, but they don't explicitly say how long the 6T's larger 3,700mAh cell will take to fill up.

    The rest of the device is the same as any other 6T, which is to say pretty great. The $70 USD / $90 CAD premium gives you the extra RAM, quicker charging and the fancy sticker on the back.

    The McLaren Edition will be available for purchase in Canada, the USA, Europe and India this Thursday, December 13th. If you order one kindly let the rest of us know how long it takes to charge... Thanks in advance!

    In the Android world it seems that the me-too display notch will be supplanted in 2019 by actual display cutouts, to better accommodate that all-important selfie cam. I guess this is progress...?



    The Honor V20—or View 20, depending on where you buy it—is tipped for a December 26th launch in Beijing, and was only teased at an event in Hong Kong on Monday. Other notable features of this new handset include a 48 megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor on the back and what Huawei is calling "Link Turbo" inside; the latter allows for downloads on both 4G and WiFi networks simultaneously.



    Not to be outdone by their nearest competitor, Samsung has unveiled its own mid-range camera hole device, the Galaxy A8s. To address Honor rear camera envy there are no less than three cameras around back—oh wait, actually just two, plus a depth-sensor. At least this effort is powered by a more familiar Snapdragon 710.

    For anyone reading this, I'm curious to know which you'd prefer: a notch cutting into your display (which you can potentially hide), or a smaller camera hole (that you probably can't).

    A new report from IDC crowns Xiaomi as the new world leader in the sales of wearable tech. The report uses data gathered from July to September of this year, a period which included the launch of the Apple Watch Series 4.

    From the source:

    Xiaomi grabbed the top position during the quarter thanks to the success of the Mi Band 3 and significant expansion beyond its home country of China. Though typically China accounts for well over 80% of Xiaomi's shipment volume, this quarter that share fell to 61% as the company managed to grow its presence in other markets such as India, Europe, and Middle East & Africa.
    And here are the numbers:

    Xiaomi
    6.9 million units shipped
    21.5% market share

    Apple
    4.2 million units shipped
    13.1% market share

    Fitbit
    3.5 million units shipped
    10.9% market share

    It certainly helps that China's appetite for fitness bands and smartwatches is double that of the United States; year-over-year growth was 21.4% for the former and -0.4% for the latter. It also helps that the Mi Band 3 goes for less than $30 USD on either GearBest or GeekBuying.

    Bloomberg is reporting today that new iPhone sales are falling short of expectations—so much so that Apple marketing staff have been pulled from other projects to address the situation. The result is potentially good news for anyone in the market for the company's latest and greatest:

    On Sunday evening, Apple kicked these efforts into high gear, adding a new banner to the top of its website advertising the iPhone XR for $449, $300 less than its official sticker price. The deal, noted with an asterisk and described at the bottom of the page, requires customers to trade in an iPhone 7 Plus, a high-end handset from two years ago.
    Unfortunately I don't think any comparable trade-in deals are available to Canadian buyers, at least not yet. Apple's GiveBack program in Canada is apparently run by an outfit called Brightstar; their current trade-in value for a 256 GB iPhone 7 Plus is only $315 CAD, or $237.75 USD. And I can see no asterisks on Apple.ca

    We'll have to live vicariously through our American friends, it seems. Be sure to let us know if you snag a sweet discount!

    It doesn’t seem that long ago that you’d need a crowbar to pry a Blackberry out of an addicts hands. However, since then, most of us have grown accustomed to on-screen keyboards. Still, for some, there’s no replacement for a physical keyboard. Fortunately, for them Blackberries have managed to stick around and even better, the keyboards are still being refined with each new generation.

    These days BlackBerry OS is long gone so if you want a BlackBerry, it’s going to be running Android. While it says BlackBerry on the phone, it’s actually made by TCL who also makes phones under the Alcatel and Palm brand names.

    If you want the latest, there’s the upper midrange Key 2 and the midrange Key 2 LE which I’m reviewing today.

    I've been using my OnePlus 6T for less than 24 hours, and the one thing I can say definitively is that its in-display fingerprint scanner is the real deal. It's maybe a titch slower than the rear-mounted equivalent on my OnePlus 5T, but because of the enlarged scanning area on the 6T version I'm actually finding it to be more accurate than my old phone. So accurate, in fact, that I've turned the face-unlock function off altogether.

    In an informal test performed just moments ago I've had a 100% success ratio with both my right and left thumbs (admittedly in ideal conditions). The only issue I'm having with this new setup is that the muscle memory on my index finger keeps reaching around the back of the 6T for the fingerprint reader that isn't there, and smudges the camera flash instead.

    It's still very much a novelty, but I'm so far so impressed with this that I might, in time, be willing to forgive the absence of a headphone jack. At least OnePlus is giving you something unique in return; Apple and Google, what's your excuse? ಠ_ಠ

    LG has always had an interesting place in the Android marketplace. I get this feeling like they’re always trying to offer a slightly different take on the Android flagship. The G3 had rear mounted volume and power buttons and higher resolution display while the G4 retained a removable battery. The G5 also had this feature but also allowed you to expand it with attachable accessories like a larger speaker. It also included a second, super-wide angle camera. The G6 was more about bringing it in line with other flagship phones with a more premium feel.

    So what is LG’s take on the 2018 flagship? Let’s check out the G7 ThinQ. ...

    Tom's Guide has assembled some interesting details about Samsung's 2019 flagship, not the least of which is this render from Dutch tech blog Let's Go Digital. Can't see the selfie cam? Check the top-left corner; it's under the display glass!

    There will apparently be at least three variants of the device:

    SM-G975x - 6.44 inch display, ultrasonic fingerprint reader
    SM-G973x - 5.8 inch display, ultrasonic fingerprint reader
    SM-G970x - 5.8 inch display, fingerprint reader embedded in power button

    US-bound versions of the device are expected to ship with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8150 processor, while international versions will likely be powered by the Exynos 9820. Available colours at launch will be black, green, white and yellow, with additional colours and gradients to follow. Nothing yet about the audio jack, unfortunately.

    First, the bad news: what I'm about to describe is currently only available for the OnePlus 6, and furthermore, only users of that device who are enrolled in the open beta program.

    Now, the good news: Open Beta 7 for the OP 6 includes a new feature called OnePlus Roaming. From the official announcement:

    OnePlus Roaming lets you surf the internet without a local SIM card. It's like a virtual sim (only data, no calls); it should work globally in most of the countries/regions, and it will list out the plans available for the country/region you are in so that you can purchase a suitable plan and access the Internet without a SIM.

    Where can I find OnePlus Roaming?
    Settings -> Wi-Fi & Internet -> OnePlus Roaming
    How to use OnePlus Roaming?
    Step 1: Purchase Package
    Select the package you want and click to buy, then finish the payment.
    Step 2: Enable Package
    After arriving at the destination, choose the purchased plan from the ordered list and enable it.
    This infrequent world traveller is especially excited—no, make that ecstatic—after seeing some screenshots posted by Android Police. As someone who's had the good fortune of visiting Japan a fair bit I can say with confidence that I've never seen such affordable rates for data there, let alone a daily rate for unlimited use.

    Hopefully they make this service permanent, and bring it to their other devices as well!

    I know what you're thinking and yes, it's the same Russian site that leaked what turned out to be legit photos of the Pixel 3 XL last August. Now, barely three months later, they've got photos of what they're claiming is a new Pixel variant; codenamed "Sargo", everybody seems to be calling it the Pixel 3 Lite.

    And yes, that is indeed a headphone jack along the phone's top edge. Other notable specs are reported to be as follows:

    5.56 inch 2220 x 1080 pixel IPS display @ 444 ppi
    Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor
    4 GB RAM / 32 GB of storage
    12 MP rear camera / 8 MP front camera
    2,915 mAh battery

    Android Police speculates that the processor—also found in Oppo's R17, for example—means that it's intended for Asia and Europe only. Unlike North America, where the Pixel's main competition bears an Apple logo and also doesn't come with an audio jack, there are plenty of Xiaomi and similar devices across the Near and Far East that do.

    Okay, I think this is it... the big push to make Wear OS the Windows of smartwatches. Available online tomorrow and in stores soon thereafter, Fossil's new Sport not only includes the new Snapdragon 3100 chip, but (almost) every other Wear OS feature that a user could want.

    First, there will be two case sizes, 41 and 43 mm, for male and female wrists. Second, there will be no less than six available colours: black, blush, grey, light blue, neon and red, plus an additional 28 options for bands and bracelets—plus your favourite third party quick-release strap from Amazon, your local watch repair shop, etc. Third, a heart rate sensor. Fourth, NFC for Google Pay. Fifth, a rotating crown to scroll through installed apps and notifications. Six, two additional customizable buttons to quick-launch your favourite apps. And seventh, the aforementioned Snapdragon 3100 chip, which should significantly improve both performance and battery life over past Wear OS releases.

    The only other feature a smartwatch user could ask for would be a trans-reflective display for readability in bright sunlight. But for $255 USD / $335 CAD you still get quite a lot!

    Here's an unboxing and tour of the Fossil Sport from Droid Life:

    Only a few weeks after its official release we already have a new colour variant of the OnePlus 6T. They even went so far as to issue a press release about it:

    “The OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple is a stunning combination of power and beauty – the black-to-purple fade is like a thunderstorm on a summer night,” Pete Lau, Founder and CEO of OnePlus, said.
    Well, it's better than one of those stupid dbrand skins, at least

    It also seems awfully quick for a new colour; it was a full two months after the initial OnePlus 6 launch that the red variant appeared on the company's online store. On the other hand, Thunder Purple is already available as a China-only special edition, so there's no technical reason not to offer it to rabid OP fans worldwide.

    The Thunder Purple OnePlus 6T, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, goes on sale in Canada and the United States at 9am Eastern this Thursday, November 15th.

    Although we've known about T-Mobile's streaming TV ambitions for over a year now the new FCC filing does hint at some form of imminent launch.

    Spotted first by Variety, this box is called the “T-Mobile Mini” in the user manual and is made by Kaonmedia, the same company that made set-top boxes for Layer3 TV.

    Per the diagram below there is a T-Mobile logo on the front, along with an Ethernet port, HDMI in/out, and of course a power port. There’s also support for USB, 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity and Bluetooth LE.

    Although we still don't know the exact date of launch T-Mobile did hint that their new service would launch "later this year," with a mobile launch in 2019.

    The original plan for today's post was to walk you through the steps for unlocking the Pixel 3's bootloader, installing TWRP and rooting with Magisk. Instead, I'm wiping my data and sending the phone, stand and two cases back to Google. I'll explain in detail below, but here's a quick summary if you don't care to read that far:

    The Great:
    - size
    - camera
    - haptic feedback

    The Good:
    - front-firing speakers
    - wireless charging

    The Bad:
    - hardware/software bugs
    - Google's launcher
    - Google's gestures
    - price

    Save for the glaring omission of Night Sight, the camera delivers everything you could ask for in terms of still images. The haptic feedback, especially on the software keyboard, was an unexpected pleasure. And if you're looking for a premium phone you can comfortably use with one hand well, there just aren't a lot of other options out there right now. Wireless charging and front-firing stereo speakers are also very nice to have.

    My biggest issue with this Pixel is that it feels like an unfinished product. Someone on some podcast somewhere said that Google treats their customers like beta testers—which is fine if you're getting free email but unacceptable for an ultra-premium piece of hardware. I may not be a fan of Samsung's extra apps, and their flagships may, over time, slow down to the point where they require a factory reset every few months, but at least when I poke around on one I feel like I'm using a finished product. That's just not the case with this Pixel 3. If it were really finished then I wouldn't have to install a hacked camera apk to access Night Sight, for example...

    Another example of unfinished business: that issue I wrote about earlier, with swiping across the rear fingerprint sensor. Turns out that it's not just me; other users are reporting the exact same problem with their Pixel 3s on reddit. Also, even after a software update I still can't get a dark background on my app drawer, despite the settings promising me that I can.

    But the single most frustrating thing about the Pixel 3 by far is its garbage implementation of gesture controls.



    What we're looking at above is the app switcher on the Pixel's native launcher. Every single time you swipe up you will be faced with this screen, even if 9 times out of 10 all you wanted to get to was your app drawer. If you swipe up with the index finger of your free hand (the one that isn't holding the phone) then you will mercifully see this screen but for a brief moment before you get to your apps. But if, on this perfectly-sized one-handed phone, you attempt the same gesture with the thumb of your phone-holding hand, guess what? The launcher will, for no good reason, dump you here at the app switcher, making you swipe up a second time to get to your apps. That's just dumb.

    Another launcher (like Nova) will at least provide the option of an app drawer button, but you'll still be forced to use Google's gestures elsewhere. Why? Because you just paid $1,000 CAD to be an involuntary beta tester for Google, that's why!

    If you love Google Assistant to the point where you want to see it everywhere, maybe this is the phone for you. Or perhaps you have young children, and want to have the best available smartphone camera with you at all times—if so then by all means give the Pixel 3 a try. Me? I'm just not willing to fork out this much cash for an unfinished product.

    I did my traditional photo walk through downtown Toronto's Graffiti Alley this morning, and here's the only photo from that shoot. Why? Because honestly, almost any modern camera phone can yield decent results outdoors on a cloudy day with even lighting. I'm actually much more interested in what the Pixel 3 can do in low light, so that's what I'm going to be focusing on (boo) for the remainder of this post.

    Before we proceed, some other notes about the camera(s):

    1. If video is your thing you probably already know that the Pixel only captures 4K at 30fps, so you can continue investigating that iPhone or whatever else you were looking into. Also, it was too windy this morning to effectively demonstrate the inferior audio quality of the P3's built-in mic.
    2. The wide-angle selfie cam is fine. No one here needs to see my face—or yours, if we're being honest.



    Now here's a face worth looking at... my middle-aged mouser is in this shot backlit by only a dim table light, but look at the sharpness in his fur and whiskers. My OnePlus 5T certainly wouldn't be able to pull off a shot like this. I'm impressed.



    Moving outdoors the high fidelity continues, and the exposure is surprisingly good, with only the direct light sources being blown out. You know, the CN Tower in the background reminds me a lot of a vacation photo I took last summer...



    Here's the Auckland Tower as seen from the harbour, taken with my OnePlus 5T. I'm including it here because of how OnePlus has chosen to deal with camera noise. Notice how the striped canopy in the foreground—and also the building directly behind it—look like they're painted? That's deliberate; the pixels are blended together with a mosaic effect to make the image look less noisy.

    But noise certainly won't be an issue on our Pixel 3, will it...?



    Here's a 100% crop of both photos, so you can see for yourself. With the Pixel (left) I'm seeing an unfortunate amount of noise, particularly around the top of the tower, whereas the OnePlus image (right) has suddenly turned from an oil painting into a watercolour—not necessarily better (and certainly not more accurate) but perhaps more aesthetically pleasing for sharing on social media?

    This isn't even a fair comparison, really, as the Pixel image was captured at night and the OnePlus at dusk, thus having a lot more available light. I guess the point I'm attempting to make here is that even the best camera has a threshold that, when crossed, starts to adversely affect image quality. And the Pixel, as impressive as it is, isn't entirely infallible. Maybe when the camera app is updated to include Night Sight it'll be a different story.
