The Meizu Pro 7's second screen might not suck

Phones with second screens fascinate me. The second display -- on the back, front, or folded in like a book -- is meant to increase your screen space, but rarely ever works (we have the sad proof). And still, they try: Samsung and LG, Kyocera and the more obscure YotaPhone with its e-ink back.



After a lull in the trend, Android apple screen repair maker Meizu is jumping into the experiment with the Meizu Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus, a pair of phones with a swipeable 2-inch AMOLED touchscreen on the back. This isn't a whole mini phone on your phone.

The Pro 7's secondary display will broadcast the time and weather forecast, show you your alerts and beam out your musical selection. You can also tap it to help take a selfie with the phone's two rear 12-megapixel cameras (ostensibly for a higher-quality pic than the front-facing camera).

The mini screen on the back might look a little strange to those of us used to smooth backings or a case, but it's not so large that it takes over your entire phone backing (and sucks your battery dry).

Mostly, I think it could stand a chance of being useful because it's so targeted, and so out of the way. As a matter of habit, I turn my phone on its face when I'm not using my phone. Being able to quickly glance at the weather or monitor an incoming call could be handy.

You would definitely need a specialized case with a see-through window to take advantage of that second screen.

Brush up on all the dual-screen apple parts disasters, and check out the Meizu Pro 7's other specs below.

iPhone 6s vs iPhone SE Beyond Different Size?

Every now and then Apple does something which, for a company that is usually predictable like clockwork, is distinctly out of left field.

Things like launching the Apple Watch, the iPad Pro, and the way it has occasionally launched smaller, slightly cheaper iPhone models such as the iPhone 5c and iPhone SE.

In these cases, not only does Apple introduce some slightly peculiar product category, or an odd take on an existing product in its portfolio, but it often launches them at weird times of the year. For most of Apple's product line-up, September is the time to watch, but the oddballs seem to get scattered throughout the year like confetti.

In 2016, on March 21, Apple launched the iPhone SE. It wasn't entirely a surprise, as there had been rumours and leaks, but none of it had felt as concrete as what we associate with the Autumnal launches of its main products.

This Spring launch only saw a single device, but it was intended for a specific market segment and is very different from its stablemates.

And that section is quite a big chunk of the iPhone market, as it happens, with the company revealing that it sold a whopping 30 million 4-inch asus replacement parts inside 2015. So there is still a hard core of 4in devotees to tap into with a new model. The iPhone SE appeared to be a bid to persaude iPhone 5s/iPhone 5c users to upgrade.

The new iPhone SE joins the ranks of Apple’s bigger smartphones. Its contemporary sibling was the the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s. We now have the iPhone 7 as well, and this year these models will be usurped by the iPhone 7s and iPhone 8. The latter in particular is going to be a beast, it's the 10th anniversary model with an all new design, an OLED display, and tons of new features.

But, according to multiple reports, the iPhone SE won't see a new model launched this year. Fans of 4in phones are essentially stuck with either the iPhone 5c (which is quite long in the tooth at this point), or the iPhone SE from 2016.

Apple will release its brand new iPhone later on this year. Dubbed the iPhone 8 at the moment, the handset could also be called the iPhone Pro, once it is official, and it will also be joined by the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.

These phones will be pricey – very pricey, indeed – with some reports suggesting the top of the line OLED iPhone 8 will retail for around £1200, which would make it the most expensive asus parts ever created (excluding Vertu ones, of course).

The iPhone 6s and iPhone SE will have their prices slashed, as is always the case when a new iPhone lands, and both are still excellent options for those looking at a cheaper way of getting in on some iPhone action in 2017.

The obvious difference between the iPhone 6s and iPhone SE are the screen sizes, but they do have a few other differences you should know about when deciding which to buy. Here’s how both compare.

The latest Moto Mod is a $300 360-degree 4K camera

Alongside the newly-announced Moto Z2 Force, Lenovo has revealed the latest Moto Mod accessory; the Moto 360 Camera.

The magnetic accessory will shoot 360-degree video in full 4K resolution at 24 frames per second, thanks to a pair of 13-megapixel wide-angled cameras.

Moto Mod 360 camera

Compatible with all cell phone battery wholesale in the Moto Z range, Motorola says it has worked with Google to ensure the stills and videos is compatible with YouTube and Google Photos.

The captured footage will be available to edit on the device. A software update will enable users to live stream the footage to various social media platforms.

The Moto 360 Camera will be available from August 10 for a price point of $299.

Moto isn’t the only horse in this race. Andy Rubin’s Essential phone also has an optional video capture accessory.

On paper, that might be the better option. It offers 30 frames per second 4K footage and is $100 cheaper.

MPU 1 (Desktop / Tablet)

Samsung is also operating within the realm. Its Gear 360 cameras designed to create footage for the Gear VR headsets among other portals.

Among the other Moto Mods on offer include a Hasselblad camera, a JBL speaker, a projector, a gamepad, a power pack and a shell to enable wireless charging.

The ecosystem of Moto Mods is developing nicely, but the appetite for them remains unclear.

The Lenovo-owned company is yet to reveal any sales information for the modular accessories that, although useful, are a tough sell for wholesale phone parts buyers who’ve just forked out for a flagship handset.

Google Pixel 2 will use Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 SoC

Google is reported to be working on the second generation of Pixel and Pixel XL zte parts . The devices have been subjected to various leaks in the past and the latest one reveals that the Google Pixel 2 will be powered by the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 chipset.

Google Pixel 2 to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 SoC: Report

According to a report by Fudzilla, citing some industry sources says that the Google Pixel 2 will be the first device to come loaded with Qualcomm’s latest processor. However, previous rumours have indicated that both the smartphones will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. So, we suggest you take this report with a pinch of salt.

The report further highlights that the processor will come with higher clock speed for both CPU and GPU as compared to Snapdragon 835. The chipset will be faster and will come with some battery improvements, the report further added. One can also expect better quality photos with Qualcomm’s upcoming chipset.

Previously, some key specifications of both the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were leaked online. To start with the larger Taimen or Google Pixel 2 XL, the smartphone will come loaded with a 5.99-inch Quad HD display, which will feature an OLED panel provided by LG, as per a report by XDA Developers. The smartphone is expected to sport a smaller bezel as compared to its predecessor, the Google Pixel XL. Further, the device is reported to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clocked at 2.4GHz along with 4GB of RAM.

There will be a 128GB storage model, however, one could expect different storage configurations as well. It is reported to feature a single camera setup at the rear panel coupled with a dual-tone flash. Lastly, the smartphone is reported to sport a similar two-tone glass and metal design, though the glass window will be placed near the top.

Coming to smaller Walleye, the zte replacement parts will feature a similar 4.97-inch Full HD display and will sport a similar design language as we have seen in original Pixel. Google is also planning to add stereo speakers at the cost of 3.5mm headphone jack, which means it will sport USB Type-C compatible headphone slot. The phone is reported to feature the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor along with 4GB of RAM and there will be a 64GB storage variant as well. One can also expect different storage models as well.

Moto Z2 Play review: All the mod cons

Modular phones are in a rather interesting spot. At the end of 2016 Google canned Project Ara, its open-source modular mobile project. In 2017, the latest LG G-series unceremoniously ditched the company's lacklustre "Friends" modules. Motorola, on the other hand, is forging onward with Moto Mods (Moto Snaps in some regions) - its magnetic clip-on back panel accessories with differing functions that connect with its Z-series smartphones.

The latest device to support Mods is the Moto Z2 Play: a 5.5-inch cell phone battery wholesale with mid-power specification and oodles of battery life wrapped into a slender metal frame, which updates last year's original battery-heavy Z Play.

As the apparent last bastion of the modular mobile movement, the Z2 Play is not only the flag-bearer for Moto Mods, but for modular phones as a whole in 2017 and beyond. And with a UK price of £379 - which is far more competitive than the $499 price tag in the USA - it's on the right side of affordable to make it an attractive idea.

That said, the Z2 Play is invariably pitched against the likes of the more powerful Honor 9 and OnePlus 5. So, is Moto's modular quirk a useful enough feature to warrant its purchase? We've been using the Z2 Play day in, day out for a full month to find out.

Moto Z2 Play review: Design

If you've ever seen the original Moto Z Play then, well, the Z2 Play looks like business as usual at first glance. It's taken the 5.5-inch footprint of the original - an unavoidable and non-negotiable size, given the Mods need to match the rear panel exactly to fit - and trimmed a full millimetre of thickness from it, making for a lighter, more pocket-friendly device at sub-6mm. Why slimmer? There will be no "standard" Moto Z2, so the Play is left to rule the roost... for now.

Look closer, however, and there are notable differences between first- and second-gen models. The Z2 Play has an all-metal frame, including the exposed rear plate (when no Mod is attached - there's a basic wooden one included in the box), rather than the etched glass rear of the original device. That makes it less slippery to handle, which is an obvious benefit when switching between Mods and not lobbing the phone on the floor. At least, we've managed to not let slip just yet.

The other obvious point - which we'll come to in more detail later - is the new fingerprint scanner to the front. It's out with the old square format and in with the new elongated form, just as you'll find on Moto G5 Plus and Moto G5 models (plus, presumably, all future Moto handsets). It looks, feels and functions far better.

When we saw the original Moto Z, we found its appearance more pock-marked than a hormonal teenager. The Z2 Play keeps things neater: there aren't excessive openings for microphones to the front, instead a simple aperture for the speaker sits top and centre, between the discreet front-facing camera and flash. It's not a design that'll stop people in their tracks, like the Samsung Galaxy S8, but it's a tidy looking wholesale phone parts nonetheless.

Moto Z2 Play review: Moto Mods

For this review we received three Mods: a wooden Moto Style Shell with wireless charge (note, no wireless charging panel is included with either phone or Mod, it's a separate purchase); the JBL SoundBoost 2, which is the second-gen fabric-covered version of the attachable speaker with kickstand; and the Moto TurboPower Pack, an additional 3490mAh capacity for the battery.

Whichever way we look at it, we think Mods are divisive. If you're on board with the idea then we suspect these accessories will be the in-point and very reason to purchase a Z series device. If you're non-plussed about them then, well, there are plenty of other handsets on the market from which to take your pick - and it's easy to buy a separate universal battery pack or speaker at similar prices for any given device.

On the upside, however, Moto Mods are the best implementation of modular accessories for any device that we've seen. Pull a Mod from the rear of the Z2 Play, sling a new one into place and - boom - that's it. No buttons, release switches or complicated fitting at all - the phone knows what's connected right off the bat. There's even a dedicated Mods section within the software, available via a swipe down in the notifications shade, to keep a closer eye on things.

The future potential of Mods makes for interesting reading, too. We've seen the GamePad, a control-laden cradle for the Z series, which is perfect for gaming fans. This will join the existing 10x zoom Hasselblad True Zoom camera and Moto Insta-Share Projector. There's scope for plenty of interesting additions beyond just yet another battery pack - although, right now, various battery forms seem to be Moto's bread and butter releases.

It's also worth keeping in mind that you'll pretty much have to buy a Mod when purchasing a Z2, as there isn't one included. Fail to connect one to the rear and, while the phone will function as normal, it looks downright bizarre.

Which Mod or Mods you choose needs careful consideration too: the TurboPower Pack is huge, for example, and thus transforms the Z2 Play into a brickphone. Sure, it'll last seemingly forever, which might be the most important thing for your use, but it makes the phone abnormally massive and heavy to be considered as a current flagship contender.

Of all the Mods we've tried, the most simple ones are our favourites, such as the Moto Style Shell. In the UK this will be released as a textured fabric-covered option. Our early sample version is a wood finish, which we've found bends due to heat and moisture - hence, we presume, why this one won't be making its way for UK release.

ASUS go back to phones with Zenfone AR

After a few years away, ASUS has announced it will begin selling phone parts wholesale in the UK again.

It begins with the Google Tango powered Zenfone AR which will be up for pre-order from ASUS directly beginning on July 21.

ASUS isn't coming back with a budget phone, then. The Zenfone AR will cost a fairly hefty £799, and the premium is certainly added with having Tango. Folks who pre-order will also get a Google Daydream View included for free, while the first 30 will get a swanky box full of goodies.

Those super early orders will come in a wooden chest with the phone, Daydream View, some headphones, a case, screen protector and a whole lot of style.

The Zenfone AR has plenty of hardware to go with the price, too. You're getting a 5.7-inch QHD display, 8GB of RAM, Snapdragon 821 processor and 128GB of internal storage.

It's also not the last phone spare parts Brits will be seeing from ASUS. While the U.S., Asia and even other parts of Europe have seen the more recent Zenfone launches, the UK hasn't had anything since the very first Zenfone. Which wasn't very good.

The next one we'll be expecting to see hasn't been announced yet, but it doesn't take a genius to imagine that will be the Zenfone 4, since 4 comes right after 3. Nevertheless, it's good to see another name throwing its hat into the British smartphone ring, even if the Zenfone AR isn't probably going to attract the mass market.

Samsung puts defunct Note 7 phones to good use

Wonder what happened to the millions of recalled Galaxy Note 7 devices that were maybe/maybe not on the verge of exploding?

They didn't just disappear off the face of the earth after Samsung recalled the device -- twice -- in the wake of battery defects that caused Note 7s to burst into flames. (In fact, the same battery issues caused Samsung's own factory to catch fire back in February. Ouch.)

Samsung recently revealed its plans (Korean) to break down the recalled Wiko parts into component parts -- like camera modules, chips, and displays -- that can be reused or sold.

The electronics giant further expects to recover 157 metric tons worth of rare metals, the company said in a statement. That's a whopping 346,126 pounds of cobalt, copper, silver and gold that Samsung can extract from components that it can't otherwise reuse.

Samsung's announcement will help it lay the Note 7 debacle to rest as the company prepares for its upcoming Galaxy Note 8 launch in late August. Samsung itself had come under fire in the months since the Note 7's recall, for keeping quiet on what it planned to do with the millions of recalled phones. In February, protestors from Greenpeace disrupted a major Samsung eventand demanded that the Note 7 phones get recycled or reused, rather than turned into harmful electronic waste.

Samsung also decided to refurbish some of the recalled Note 7 Wiko replacement parts , and sell a safe version in some markets. Earlier this month the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 FE went on sale in South Korea. This phone is said to have gone under Samsung's eight-point battery check to ensure its safety, but there's no official word on when or if it'll come to other countries.

We'll soon find out if the Note 8 can redeem the Galaxy Note's scorched reputation.
