Royole FlexPai Review: Hands-on

The Royole FlexPai is the first flexible phone, but it shows that we still have a long way to go before bending your phone becomes routine
Should I Buy The Royole FlexPai?
‘Fun but flawed’ is really the only sensible reaction to the FlexPai right now. The foldable display tech is genuinely impressive, but you can’t escape the feeling that it’s not quite there yet.
Laggy software, a plasticky finish, and worrying evidence of screen burn mean that right now the FlexPai feels like a sign of where phones are going - but proof that they’re not there just yet.

Battlefield 2018: Release date rumours, platforms & gameplay news

Battlefield 2018: Release date rumours, platforms & gameplay news

Following no Battlefield release in 2017, EA has confirmed that the hit series will be back later this year. The hugely popular first-person shooter has gone from strength to strength in recent years with titles like Battlefield 1 while competitors like Call of Duty struggle to entice players back, and we’re hoping it’s a similar story in 2018.

So, what do we know about the upcoming Battlefield game? The latest leak suggests it'll be called Battlefield V. Here’s everything we know so far about Battlefield 2018, including release date rumours, platform speculation and gameplay leaks.

Battlefield 2018 release date rumours

So, the biggest question at the moment is “When will Battlefield 2018 come out?” and considering we don’t yet know the official name for the upcoming game, it should come as no surprise that there’s no firm release date in place.

However, EA confirmed during its Q3 earnings call that it's planning on releasing a new Battlefield game in October 2018, so it’s definitely coming - we just don't know the exact release date just yet.

And following the initial announcement, there are rumours that EA's yearly EA Play event will offer the chance for gamers to get some early hands-on time with the game. Alongside the flurry of Sports games that'll be available to play at EA's event in LA in June, it's largely believed that it'll be the first time that the public will be able to play the upcoming Battlefield game. This suggests to us that the upcoming Battlefield game will be revealed pre-EA Play 2018, leading us to predict an April-May 2018 announcement. 

Our prediction aligns with the latest Battlefield 2018 news; according to a tweet from Randy Evans, senior video and media director at EA Dice, the "Battlefield 2018 trailer is underway". But despite the teaser, Evans provided no timeframe for its general release, and according to subsequent Twitter replies, Evans describes the state of the trailer as a WIP (work-in-progress) right now. When you consider that the Battlefield 1 reveal trailer took months to create, we may not be seeing it in the next few weeks. 

If you can’t wait until then to play, take a look at our selection of the best FPS games right now.
Battlefield 2018 platforms

What about platforms? Where will prospective players be able to access the upcoming Battlefield title? While there’s no word yet, it’s almost a given that Battlefront 2018 will be available for the latest consoles – the Xbox One and PS4 with Xbox One X and PS4 Pro support – along with PC.

The only real mystery with regards to platforms is whether it’ll be the first Battlefield title to offer Nintendo Switch support. The Switch wasn’t announced until well into the development of Battlefield 1, making it hard to add support for Nintendo’s relatively-underpowered handheld console.

But the Switch has been out for almost a year, and with another year until we expect to see the game, it could be enough time for developers to create something for the Nintendo Switch. If the likes of Doom and Wolfenstein 2 can run on the Nintendo Switch, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that there’s a chance for Battlefield on the Switch too

Battlefield 2018 gameplay and branding rumours

So, what can we expect from the upcoming Battlefield game? While there’s nothing official, a leak suggested that the upcoming Battlefield franchise would feature Bad Company branding. The leak came from the same person that successfully predicted Battlefield 1 months before its announcement, making many believe it was authentic.

The leak came in the form of a video on YouTube from TheAlmightyDaq where it was claimed that Battlefield: Bad Company 3 is in development. 

However, the rumour was later disproven by a number of sources at EA, leading TheAlmightDaq to clarify his claims. The popular YouTuber explained to Eurogamer that "there are two games" currently in development. "There are two games," he told Eurogamer. "I'm aware that DICE Sweden is WW2. That's what my next video is about. The one I leaked is DICE LA." 

But when you consider that DICE LA focuses more on creating DLC for Battlefield games created by DICE Sweden, it seems like we won't be seeing Bad Company 3 after all! 

A more recent report from GamesBeat shines some light on an alternative. Speaking to a source "familiar with EA's plans", the publication claims that the upcoming game will be called Battlefield V (confusing naming system much?) and like Call of Duty's 2017 title, will be focused on World War 2. 



There isn't much else to go on at this point, but the report included a leaked screenshot that included the new branding. It's worth noting that it's probably a placeholder and not the final product, but it certainly backs up the EA source's claims.

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Huawei P Smart 2019 Review

Huawei has updated its budget Android phone for 2019. It’s faster and better than before, but should you buy it? Read our review to find out.
Should I Buy The Huawei P Smart 2019?
The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.

Moto Z4 Play Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Apple iPad Pro 2018 vs Microsoft Surface Pro 6

Apple’s latest iPad Pros are a very tempting purchase, but should you stick with the tried-and-tested Surface Pro from Microsoft? We help you decide which tablet to buy.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 Or Apple iPad Pro 11in (2018)? Two very competent 2-in-1s, one running Windows 10, the other iOS 12. For many this difference alone will inform the final choice, but both are top-notch tablets.
