Budget phone options seem to be picking up s000 in the age of the $1000+ flagship, but before you decide you want a Nord N10 5G or an N100, you might want to pump the brakes a bit.

OnePlus Nord N10 5G is another Moto G moment

The OnePlus Nord N10 5G is a turning point for the company - and for you, if you buy the device. It is at this point that OnePlus moves beyond a single line of phones - or two lines of phones (regular and budget), or even three (with the Pro line). Now we've got OnePlus, a budget line with Nord, and another pair of phones (N10 5G and N100). What are we to make of this? We've had the device for enough time now that I'm able to start making serious considerations about not only its features and capabilities, but about what it represents for the company - and you, the consumer of OnePlus products.

The iPhone 12 mini feels like coming home

The iPhone 12 mini feels like coming home

The iPhone 12 mini feels like a throwback, and a glorious one at that. Nestling into your hand, its compact body unexpectedly light, it's a reminder of the days many assumed were long gone, when smartphones were little larger overall than their dumb-phone predecessors. In the process, though, it also upends attempts over the past few years to give users the best of all worlds.

Verizon Nokia 8 V 5G UW brings the brand back to the limelight

Nokia's been in a long, strange journey over the past decade. They've gone from the top - the most well-known phone maker around the world - down to (nearly) the bottom.

Creating phones that run Android at the same time as they create feature phones with limited functionality, Nokia's poised for a bit of a return to the public eye. Verizon may do that.
