Dragon Quest Tact is a charming and engaging mobile tactics game

I've never been a great strategy game guy. Although I can definitely admire the depth found in games like XCOM Y Civilization, they are not usually for me. That's why I appreciate Square Enix's Dragon Quest Touch. It is a free gacha version of a tactics game, which opens it up to many players. Based on my time with a preview version of the game for iOS, it succeeds in being a fun and relaxed “tactical” experience. In Dragon Quest Touch, you play as a human who wakes up in the monster-filled world of Orchesterra. Using a magic staff, you must defeat these creatures and then command them in battle. Beyond that, Touch seems to have a generic "go out and save the day, adventurer!" kind of a mobile game story with some rather hackneyed dialogue. Fortunately, the gameplay is much m...

Now you can combine emoji to create stickers in Gboard’s emoji kitchen

Gboard's 'emoji kitchen' got a little hotter on android. Now Gboard beta users can create stickers based on the two emoji of their choice. When it was introduced earlier this year, the emoji kitchen only suggested default combinations when you inserted a selected emoji. To be clear, this does not work for each combination of emoji, but still supports a lot of mixing. Also, you can combine two of the same emojis to create a variant, like two jeans to create a single finger gun cowboy. The new emoji kitchen functionality has already been widely implemented for beta users of Gboard on Android. It is unclear when it will have an official release on Android or if it will finally make it to iOS. If you are curious about the types of combinations, check out Android AuthorityExten...

How to regain control of your notifications on Android

Notifications are not good. Our phones are constantly ringing with little gray boxes begging for our attention, but trust me, you can live without them and life on the other side is better. In Android 10 or 11, managing notifications is really easy, so if you are on a modern version of the operating system, now is the time to step up and regain control. There are two ways to control notifications: a slow way and a faster way. The slow version is easier but time consuming, and the fast method takes less time but requires a bit more work. The slow wayOn Android, you can touch and hold a notification to reveal several basic options. There are two options: "Important" and "Other". If something is set as important, your phone will display the notification with the highest priority. ...

TCL 10 Pro is available in a new green color variant on Amazon’s US site.

The TCL 10 Pro is now available in a new 'Forest Mist Green' color variant. The phone appears in Amazon.com for $ 449 USD (about $ 591). TCL says the phone will be shipped to Canada, but there are international shipping fees and, in some cases, customs fees. The TCL 10 Pro features a 6.47-inch FHD + AMOLED display with a 64-megapixel quad rear camera system, 128GB of storage, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor, 6GB of RAM, and a 4,500mAh battery. This Forest Green variant is not available on the Amazon Canada website, so the US site appears to be the only official way to get that color variant of the phone. For more on the TCL 10 Pro, check out my view of the phone here.

OnePlus 8T review: Is the perfect phone too late?

2020 is stacking up to be OnePlus's best year yet as the company follows the very well-reviewed Nord and OnePlus 8 series with the new 8T. The phone takes everything I liked about the 8 Pro, adds a few more features, and then packages it in a case that is a cross between the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 7T. While this sounds like a recipe for success, there are some roadblocks. The only problem I have with the phone is related to its cost. If money isn't an issue, then you'll be happy with this device, but several other lower-cost options this year might make you think twice about paying $ 1,099 CAD for a powerhouse like the 8T. When I reviewed the OnePlus 8 series, I said that perfection was only a phone away, and the 8T almost proved me right. specsSimplicity works wondersOne...
