Review: Palm Treo 800w
I'm prejudiced. I find Windows Mobile a clunky, over-wrought, inelegant smartphone mobile OS compared to Palm, BlackBerry, even Symbian. But I understand that Windows Mobile has a legion of fans. For Windows Mobile admirers, the addition of the irresistible how-did-I-live-without-it GPS function, a solid 2 MP camera, threaded messaging, and WiFi connectivity, even if it is out-performed by the iPhone 3G's WiFi, bring the Treo into the modern age. For me, OS aside, the short battery life would push me to consider alternatives. But if you're a Sprint subscriber and a Treo fan, the 800w is superior in all other ways to the 700w.

OnePlus has revealed its new lineup for 2020 — the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro — both of which have 5G. They also manage to pack larger batteries into slightly thinner bodies compared to their predecessors.
Sony's new flagship phones for 2018 pack all the bells and whistles into a curvy new glass design. Both phones include top-end features like a Snapdragon 845 processor, 2:1 ratio display, stereo speakers, HDR video capture and viewing, water resistance, and advanced cameras.
Battery cases are great, but they typically block the charging port, which is especially tricky with phones that lack a headset jack; the case blocks all wired connections. The Mophie Juice Pack Access solves that and other problems neatly, in a well-designed product.
