• Google's Live Caption feature will be rolling out starting with the Pixel 4

    27 days ago - By AndroidPhoneFans

    Sometimes we take the ability to see or to hear for granted, where we don't realize that these simple everyday things we do might be infinitely harder for others. This is why accessibility features are so important, where they can really change the way someone uses their smartphone.
    Back at Google I/O 2019, the company announced a new feature called Live Caption. Basically, this would automatically caption things on the screen, like when you're watching a video, for example. The good news is that Google has announced that the feature will soon be rolling out to Android users, starting with...

  • Do you prefer wide-angle or telephoto cameras?

    Do you prefer wide-angle or telephoto cameras?

    27 days ago - By Android Central

    Let's have a chat with the AC forums.
    Google recently announced its new Pixel 4 smartphone, and it brings a lot of big upgrades with it - most notably dual rear cameras. Google's making big claims for the 16MP telephoto camera on the phone, but a lot of folks were disappointed in the company's decision to use a telephoto lens instead of a wide-angle one.
    As you might have guessed, that's resulted in an even bigger debate about these two types of sensors.
    Telephoto's great for getting up close and personal with subjects that are far away, but for a lot of folks, wide-angle is both more...

    This ace OnePlus 7 Pro deal is the iPhone 11 competitor you may have forgotten about

    27 days ago - By TechRadar

    The flagship phone market never stops moving. Every day seems to be a new phone, whether it be from Apple, Samsung Huawei or, case in point, this week's Google Pixel 4 deals coming to market. And with so many releases, its easy to forget about some, so let us remind you of one very tempting choice - the OnePlus 7 Pro. There are myriad reasons this might have slipped past your radar - OnePlus doesn't have Apple level brand recognition, it's competed with an endless range of top 2019 devices or most likely, it was exclusive to Three, with a disappointingly small amount of contracts...

    Google keeps adding Pixel features it claimed it didn't need

    27 days ago - By The Verge

    Photo by Vjeran Pavic / The Verge
    With the Pixel 4, Google has finally added a second lens to the back of its phones. Speaking onstage at yesterday's launch event, Google Research's Marc Levoy explained the decision with a relatively simple statement of fact. “Some subjects are farther away than you'd like,” he said, “so it does help telephoto shots to have a telephoto lens.”
    It seems like a weirdly obvious point to make, but Levoy had to spell it out because until last year Google was claiming that its phones could get by with just a single rear camera. Check out this interview with Wired...

  • Huawei Nova 5T Unveiled With Five Cameras, Thinner Bezels Than Pixel 4

    Huawei Nova 5T Unveiled With Five Cameras, Thinner Bezels Than Pixel 4

    27 days ago - By Android Headlines

    Huawei has just announced a new mid-range smartphone in Europe, the Nova 5T. That handset actually looks quite sleek, and has thinner bezels than Google's new flagship, the Pixel 4. The two phones are not really related, it's just interesting how Google decided to go against the flow.
    This phone is made out of metal and glass, and it does have a "chin" below the display. That chin is barely thicker than the rest of its bezels, though. A display camera hole is also a part of this phone's design. That camera hole is placed in the top-left corner, as you can see in the provided images.

    Google Pixel 4 initial review: Shooting for the stars

    27 days ago - By Pocket-lint

    With Android being so dominant in smartphones, it's sometimes a surprise to recall that Google has only been in the smartphone game itself for 4 years. The new Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are a true expression of what Google wants from a phone, presented here for 2019. Some will decry this and say it's not true: there was the Nexus programme before that saw pure Android phones coming from Google - but the message around Pixel is that Google takes the design lead and makes all the important decisions. We got the chance to get some hands-on time with the new phone prior to launch. Shifting design...

    Google explains lack of 5G support on the Pixel 4, leaving the door open for the Pixel 5

    27 days ago - By Phone Arena

    An avalanche of credible rumors and rock-solid leaks foreshadowed the official announcement of the Pixel 4 and 4 XL earlier this week, most of which proved 100 percent accurate, essentially spoiling every single surprise Google tried to keep hidden under its sleeve. But there were also a few not-so-plausible pieces of gossip bandied about, especially in the home stretch, like speculation over a limited edition of the search giant's latest flagship handset possibly integrating 5G connectivity.
    That obviously didn't pan out, giving Samsung and LG more ...

  • Facial recognition on the Pixel 4 doesn't care if you're dead

    27 days ago - By Talk Android

    Google has gone all in on facial recognition with the Pixel 4, removing the fingerprint scanner entirely in favor of the hands-free alternative. It's a bit of an Apple move , but from a tech perspective, it does make sense. I would've preferred an optional in-display fingerprint scanner (thank you...
