Galaxy Fold teardown is all hinges, ribbon cables, and screens ready to break if you look at them wrong

Samsung told us what sort of engineering went into making a Galaxy Fold possible. If you didn’t believe what the company had to say, well, take a look at a teardown courtesy of a Chinese blogger and see all the moving parts for yourself.

The images of this torn-down foldable phone seemed to have originally come from this Weibo user — at least, so the watermarks may claim. The post has since been removed from the account, but not before the pictures were circulated to the wider internet.

Budget Your Google Play Spending With this New In-App Setting

One of the best things about apps is their affordability. Often, mobile apps can do things that desktop or web-based software and service can, but at fractions of the price.

AMP pages will now show original URL in Chrome’s address bar, fundamentally changing how the web works

Google had its 2019 ‘AMP Conf’ in Tokyo today, and announced a series of changes and new features coming to the company’s Accelerated Mobile Pages project. The most important announcement was that AMP pages will now show the original URL in the address bar, which should solve the platform’s greatest point of confusion — but it’s only making things worse.

Робо-футболист от начинающих. Соревнования в МФТИ. Android & Arduino & Bluetooth

Данная статья является полу-сиквелом к работе Love, Death and Robots «Машинка на Arduino, управляемая Android-устройством по Bluetooth, — полный цикл», состоящей из двух частей (раз, два). Вещи, описанные там, были немного доработаны-переделаны, а сам робот из ездящей машинки превратился в футболиста. В общем, есть интересный материал о том, как делать не надо.

The LG G8 is a good phone that can’t escape some of the bad ideas behind it

Right now, the dominant trend in flagship smartphone design is one of refinement. Instead of aiming to sell shoppers on the appeal of tricks like modular hardware, or overloading a handset with gimmicky sensors, successful phones are instead trying to achieve the platonic ideal of basically existing as little more than one big screen. That’s driven recent efforts like the proliferation of in-display fingerprint sensors, pop-out selfie cams, and the evolution of the notch to hole-punch designs.

Samsung is screwing up many Galaxy S10 trade-ins, leaving customers frustrated

It’s not uncommon for smartphone manufacturers to offer some sort of trade-in incentive for the brand-new model. Samsung’s been doing it for several iterations now, as have Google and Apple. However, there seems to be an inherent logistical problem with these types of programs. There are always some trade-ins that are deemed ineligible, when, in actuality, they’re perfectly compliant. That’s what’s happening to a bunch of Galaxy S10 buyers who took Samsung up on their trade-in deals.

The ultimate account security is now in your pocketThe ultimate account security is now in your pocket

Phishing—when an attacker tries to trick you into turning over your online credentials—is the most common cause of security breaches. Preventing phishing attacks can be a major challenge for personal and business users alike. At Google, we automatically block the overwhelming majority of malicious sign-in attempts (even if an attacker has your username or password), but an additional layer of protection can be helpful.Two-step verification (or 2SV) makes it even harder for attackers to gain access to your accounts by adding one more step to the sign-in process. While any form of 2SV, like SMS text message codes and push notifications,…
