OnePlus One (Retail) Unboxing and Hands-on

A few weeks back, Tim had a chance to go hands-on with the OnePlus One, the incredibly affordable yet high-end phone from a Chinese semi-startup. The phones he played with, along with those used in countless reviews over the last month, were pre-production models of the white 16GB variant that probably weren’t ready for prime time. The device we just received today (thanks to an invite), which is an official retail version of the 64GB Sandstone Black variant, is probably much more ready to be shown off to the world.

So, let’s unbox it!  (more…)

DL Answers Your Questions About the LG G3

On Friday, we received an LG G3 to review, but we know many of our readers don’t feel like waiting for us to pump out a full review, which usually takes 1-2 weeks. To help kill time, we opened up the DL hotline, giving you a chance to ask us anything you wanted to know about the phone.

Clearly, everyone wants to know about four major things – the display, battery life, how it feels in hand, and LG’s new skin.

We have had the device for four days now, and have a pretty good feel for everything this Korean model of the G3 has to offer, so check out our answers to your top-rated questions below. (more…)

Camera Shootout: LG G3 vs. Galaxy S5 vs. One (M8) vs. Nexus 5 vs. iPhone 5s

The 13MP camera featured on the LG G3 is certainly one of its main highlights. Much like last year’s G2, the camera features optical image stabilization (OIS+), as well as a fancy new laser built right into the backside of the device to create super-fast auto focus times.

Over the weekend, we put the LG G3 through the camera paces, coming away extremely impressed. For comparison purposes, we took out five top devices, just to see if we could try to come away with something useful.

Down below in the gallery, we have shots from the LG G3, Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One (M8), Google Nexus 5, and Apple iPhone 5s.  (more…)
