However, I, and many others, are getting pretty frustrated with how the company is handling the rollout of Android 10 to the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. Three weeks ago today, on September 21, the company announced on its official forums that a stable rollout of Android 10 was starting for the OnePlus 7 series. This didn't make OnePlus the first company to push a stable build of the latest version of Android to a handset, but proved it is still one of the fastest companies in the industry in that metric.
Google is updating its Pixel Buds lineup with a new set of truly wireless earbuds that support Google Assistant voice interactions, feature adaptive sound to adjust the audio according to your environment, and a compact design that Google says allows the new Pixel Buds to sit nearly flush with your ear. That price includes a set of earbuds plus a charging case — the company says you should get up to 5 hours of battery life from the earbuds on their own or up to 24 hours when you carry the case with you.
Microsoft does provide one other clue as to what to expect from upcoming hardware: all of the initial Windows 10X devices will be “powered by Intel,” which rules out ARM or AMD processors… at least in the short term. Honestly, Microsoft is being a little vague about that at the moment. On the one hand, the company says it'll feel familiar to anyone who's used Windows 10 thanks to a similar user interface. But since it takes more power to drive two screen than one, the company wanted to decrease the battery drain of apps.
The sides of the phone have a much thinner aluminum frame than the Note 9 and even the S10. The glass wraps around the edges more, almost feeling like a solid extruded piece. It looks nicer than a thicker metal frame, but from the moment I saw this phone I was worried about it breaking. Lo and behold, two days later, that became the case. My unit managed to slide off a table onto concrete from about four feet up and hit the bottom left corner, causing hairline fractures. Unfortunately, this is a necessary trade-off. Samsung likely used this glass-heavy design to maintain consistency with the 5G model, which needs more glass on the sides for its mmWave antennas to work. We saw nearly the same design on the Galaxy S10 5G.
