OnePlus 10 Pro officially: all about the new high-end smartphone
The OnePlus 10 Pro is presented and the high-end device from OnePlus for 2022. It is a presentation for the Chinese market and the OnePlus 10 has not been shown yet. When the 10 Pro will be released in Europe and for what price, there is still a long way to go. The OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 9 were presented at the end of March 2021 with starting prices of 999 and 899 euros respectively. Two color variants have so far been presented: black and green. Again, we see a 6.7-inch screen with a high resolution of 3216 by 1440 pixels. It is an amoled panel with a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz. This is adapted to the content displayed, which should ensure better battery performance.

Rumor: Motorola Razr 3 gets fastest processor and 120Hz screen
The usually well-informed website XDA Developers has released the first specifications of the Motorola Razr 3. The Razr 3 is set to become Motorola’s third foldable smartphone, which, like its predecessors, can open and close vertically. What is striking is that Motorola would opt for high-end specifications; the original Razr and Razr 5G were more mid-range phones under the hood. The Razr 3 would be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, the fastest mobile chip currently made by Qualcomm. Among the predecessors, we saw a modest Snapdragon 710 and 765 processor.

Android 13 makes Google Assistant less intrusive
How do you operate your Android smartphone? Do you use swipe gestures, or do you have “old-fashioned” virtual buttons (to go back, to the home screen and the app overview) at the bottom of your phone? Whoever uses the second option can make Google Assistant less intrusive in Android 13. Namely, you can choose not to turn on the voice aid at the moment you hold down the home button for a long time. Oddly enough, this is not possible in Android 12 and earlier versions.

“Samsung presents Galaxy S22 in less than a month”
Samsung officially unveils the Galaxy S21 FE this week, but the brand new Galaxy S22 is also coming soon. The Korean website DDaily announces when Samsung’s new flagship will be launched. The smartphone maker would like to present the S22 on February 8, after which the pre-order period starts on February 9. In other words: from that day you can pre-order the device. The official release of the Samsung S22 would take place on February 24, already writes Sammobile that on the 21st the first copies will be sent to the first consumers. It would therefore mean that we are less than a month away from the official presentation.

Amazon Fire TV Stick review: Chromecast alternative is just not
The Amazon Fire TV Stick has recently been officially available in the Netherlands. Amazon’s media players have long been available for purchase through the company’s website, but the ‘International Version’ has been available since the end of last year. It also supports the Dutch language. The device is an interesting alternative to the Chromecast and with a price of 39.99 euros also very affordable. So a good reason to bring the Fire TV Stick home for a review. Important to know is that the device is available in two versions: with full HD and 4K support. We tested the cheapest version, which works with a maximum resolution of 1080p.
