Check out this Google Pixel VS iPhone7 performance test

There’s no denying that the iPhone 7’s A10 fusion chip is quite a beast. Fellow YouTuber Super Saf made a comparison video of the Pixel going head to head against the iPhone 7 in two speed tests. The first one is a performance speed test, which shows us the benchmark results between the two devices and both devices’ abilities to load and recall apps onto the RAM.

The Pixel tends to load games slower than the iPhone 7 while the Pixel struggles to keep up. Otherwise, the Pixel is able to keep up with the iPhone 7 fairly well. The less-intensive apps like calculator and browser, are otherwise right on par with the iPhone 7. Meanwhile, the camera does open a touch faster which is super important for those who don’t want to miss the shot because their phone decided to lag.

Razer announces new Blade Pro laptop with insane specs, brings Blade and Blade Stealth to the EU

Sure, you already think "gaming!" and "crazy specs!" when you hear the name Razer, but the company has surely outdone itself this time around. It's just unveiled the new Blade Pro laptop, and it's more powerful than ever.

First things first, though. It has a mechanical keyboard. Thanks to "ultra-low-profile mechanical switches", this should be able to emulate the actuation of a full-size mechanical keyboard. Oh, and did you see that touchpad? It's huge.

ZTE is announcing a big phone on October 27, probably the Axon 7 Max

ZTE has just taken the wraps off the nubia Z11 mini S a few days ago, but the Chinese company apparently isn't done with new phone launches for this month. It's already scheduled a new event in China on October 27.

While it hasn't said exactly what the event is for, the teaser (which you can see in the image to the left) says something along the lines of "Witness the big phone event". That makes us think this will be when ZTE outs a new phablet.

And that in turn makes us think the recently leaked Axon 7 Max is the device that will become official on October 27. The Axon 7 Max is going to be the successor to the original Axon Max from last year. It will complement both the Axon 7 and the Axon 7 mini in ZTE's current Axon-branded portfolio.

The Axon 7 Max is expected to feature a 6-inch 1080p touchscreen, the Snapdragon 625 SoC at the helm, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a dual rear camera setup with laser autofocus and dual-LED flash (though the resolution of the sensors is still unknown). It will run Android 7.0 Nougat with ZTE's MiFavor UI 4.0 on top. A fingerprint scanner will be on the Axon 7 Max's back.

Those are all the details we have about it at the moment. Obviously it's possible that this event is for something else entirely. We'll find out for sure in exactly one week.

Samsung could be using LG batteries for the Galaxy S8

Today a new report from South Korea is claiming that Samsung is even willing to work with its main competitor from the country in order to ensure that the Galaxy S8's battery is problem-free. This is understandable, of course, in the wake of the Galaxy Note7 tragedy. An unnamed Samsung executive was quoted as saying the following: "We are looking at diverse suppliers, including LG Chem". This statement was with regard to new efforts by the company to diversify its battery suppliers.

So far, Samsung Electronics has worked with just two - Samsung SDI and ATL. While before the initial Galaxy Note7 recall Samsung believed only SDI-made batteries were faulty, the phones kept catching fire even after that, which means ATL's batteries weren't any better in fact.

Sources from Korea say the battery supply deal between LG Chem and Samsung isn't signed yet, and that we're not very close to that happening. But talks could be underway, which is still significant because Samsung and LG usually avoid buying parts from each other since they fiercely compete in dozens of types of consumer electronic products.

Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro press renders and specs leak ahead of todays's unveiling

Today Samsung will make the Galaxy C9 official in China. At least that's what we thought so far. However, it turns out that the device we've been referring to as the C9 is actually going to be called C9 Pro. We now know this because a lot of official-looking Samsung promo materials for the Galaxy C9 Pro have been leaked in China today ahead of tomorrow's grand event.

These contain a few press renders of the handset, which you can see in all its glory below. There are also quite a few specs detailed, so let's go through those. The Galaxy C9 Pro will have a 6-inch touchscreen and will be powered either by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 or the new 653 chipset - the two Chinese sources for these leaks couldn't agree on which one.

More evidence that Meizu M5 will be made official on October 31

Meizu is holding an event on October 31, and there have already been reports that the Meizu M5 will be unveiled on that day. And now there's more evidence that adds weight to these reports.

In response to a user's comment on Weibo, the Chinese company's VP Li Nan has dropped hints that the phone would be unveiled ahead of its November 11 launch.

In case you missed, the handset recently leaked in live images. Rumors say it will be powered by Mediatek's MT6750 chipset and sport an HD display. It'll have 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory, and will feature a 13MP main camera.
