Chinese telephone manufacturer Vivo exhibited a wonderful portable concept phone to a group of writers in Hong Kong. The phone's shell is a unibody piece glass -Vivo, Vivo must come with a special production method to shape, cut, grind and polish a single piece of glass for this phone. It's wild.

Samsung Galaxy S10 updates (and more)

  • Samsung presses the one-hand application application from a user interface to the Play Store. This means that it can be updated independently of the operating system. Nice. [Android Police]
  • S10 owners can get six months free Spotify Premium. The downside? Spotify is pre-installed on all S10s. You win little, you lose some. [The Verge]
  • Talk about free stuff to S10 owners, they also get four months of YouTube Premium. Yay for no ads! [9to5Google]
  • In slightly less enjoyable news, the S10's face lock feature can easily be tricked by an image because Samsung removed the retina. Ouch. [Android Police]
