The OnePlus 5T received a new Oreo beta build today and the update introduces a big new feature: Navigation Gestures. These are indeed like the iPhone X and its gesture-inspired navigation in that you swipe up to go home or swipe up and hold to bring up the app switcher. OnePlus added a back gesture, though, since this is Android. Let's see how it compares in a OnePlus 5T vs. iPhone X battle.

It's been almost 3 months since I reviewed the Google Pixel, and if you can believe, it's still the phone I'm using. Since we often get a break from phone reviews from November through February, this is a time for tech reviewers to settle into something a bit. The Google Pixel is the phone I chose. Here is our Google Pixel review, 3 months in. Music: DeKobe - Makahiya (https://soundcloud.com/dekobe/makahiya)

Hey, we did a phone review on video! This is the Moto Z Play, a budget-friendly phone that is probably the best of the Moto Z family. Great battery life, awesome software, and a good price tag. It may not be a flagship killer, but it performs with the best of the. Enjoy! Music: Umpire - Collins Ave. - http://drd.life/2ctgjER

After releasing the OnePlus only a few short months ago, OnePlus is ready to bring us the OnePlus 3T, a slightly improved phone without a giant hike. Should you be mad or excited? Maybe a bit of both. Our OnePlus 3T review is here. EDIT: Review mentions base model with 32GB, but the base model actually has 64GB. Apologies for that.

Android 8.1 dropped this week in a developer preview, so we tossed it on both a Pixel XL and Pixel 2 XL to see what has changed. For the Pixel 2 XL, not much, but the Pixel phones from last year are really getting the new Pixel 2 experience. Let's take a look!

The LG V30 is now official and we've spent a whole bunch of time with the phone. After getting a short hands-on introduction before our V30 review, we've also had a few days with a preview unit to be able to fully dive into what LG is offering here. This phone is an upgrade over the LG V20 in numerous ways. While it lacks the removable battery, it features a big ol' 6-inch POLED QHD+ FullVision display with little bezel, Quad DAC, upgraded dual camera setup, and Android 7.1.2. It's also metal of beautiful glass and metal and finds itself somewhere in the realm of a Galaxy S8 mushed with an LG G6. This is a big jump over the G6 and an even bigger leap from last year's V-series phone. It's looking like a winner so far. Be sure to subscribe for more LG V30 coverage!

LG's V30 is their best smartphone to date, that's for sure. It's so good, I'd say that we should be considering it right up there with the Galaxy Note 8 and Pixel 2 XL from Samsung and Google. And when you consider the $800 price tag, it almost becomes a steal.

UPDATE: We've re-reviewed the Essential Phone now that its price has dropped substantially. You should read this - things have changed. https://www.droid-life.com/2017/11/06/fresh-look-essential-phone-worth-now/ Buy Essential Phone: http://amzn.to/2B8Xn6Y In our Essential Phone review, well, we're a bit emotional. You see, this is the phone I wanted to want. It's the phone I've been looking forward to the most. The combination of premium materials (titanium and ceramic) and clean software (stock, bare bones Android) is a combination I've been waiting years for someone to put together. The problem here is that the camera experience is just not good enough at the moment and poor software performance has been frustrating to deal with. Those two things can probably be improved, but how long should we wait with this $700 device? It better not be long. Come on, Essential, you can do this.
