Samsung Galaxy A02s in for review

Say hello to the Samsung Galaxy A02s, an entry level phone that aims to deliver a decent smartphone experience at a €150 price point. The Galaxy A20s is well made and feels good in the hand. It comes with a cable and a 15W charger, which is more than you get with a Galaxy S21-series phone these days. We do regret the omission of a case, but at these prices it’s no surprise. The back of the phone has a stylish prism finish, which captures the light and reflects in different shades. It’s also textured, which lends the phone a comfortable grip. The Galaxy A02s also has all the…

New Motorola watches to be revealed later this year – Moto G, Watch and One

Last year, Motorola’s iconic Moto 360 smartwatch running on Wear OS made a comeback, but it was manufactured by one of Motorola’s partners – eBuyNow.

A circular design is at hand with two physical buttons to the side. If all goes as planned, we should see a Moto…

This is most likely a Chinese event we are talking about, so a global one will follow shortly after. However, the X3 Pro and the proper X3 are going to be the real stars of the show since earlier rumors say that the X3 Lite and the X3 Neo…
