Why This Was One of the Most Important Phones in History

You might not know it but that is the sound of one of the most important, albeit underrated, phones in history. In this Decodr episode, my explainer series here on the channel, let me explain what I mean. This is the Sidekick 3, the third generation of the iconic device and probably the apex of the Sidekick line (and the only one I could find on eBay that worked if I’m honest). Now, when the original version launched back in 2002 under the brand name Sidekick, the top selling phone in the world that year was this, the Nokia 6100. …

Camera Comparison: TCL 10 Pro vs iPhone SE vs Pixel 3a

The TCL 10 Pro is undoubtedly a pretty phone (and even more so considering the fact it’s $450). The question on everyone’s mind though is whether the camera is any good though? Well, in a potentially unfair shoot out, here are arguably the two top camera phones under $450: the iPhone SE 2020 and the Pixel 3a. So I figured I’d take a few photos on each on a socially distant walk and post them here for anyone curious about how the new TCL compares. Take a look below and let me know in the comments what you guys think. …

Motorola Edge Plus Complete Walkthrough (w/ Camera Comparison & Battery Test)

I’ve been waiting for Motorola to finally abandon MotoMods and make a proper flagship. Look I won’t go into why MotoMods aren’t my favorite concept (you could start with the sheer cost of them) but the truth is that once Motorola committed to them and the three years of supporting them on phones going forward it sort of forced their engineers and designers hands–they were stuck in this shape with these components. And while I do commend Motorola for making a bet on something and then following through with their promise to support it for as long as they did …

Huawei P40 Pro Complete Walkthrough (& What It’s Like Without Google)

Huawei just launched a new P series device and considering how good the P30 series was I was super interested to see what the new P40 series had to offer. The livestream came and went and the spec sheets for the three new devices–the P40, P40 Pro, and P40 Pro Plus (yes naming is getting more and more confusing in the phone world)–and frankly on paper at least they didn’t disappoint. Now, here in the US and a good portion of the Western world, this launch is tarnished, just as the Mate 30 series was, by the fact that thanks …
