FIGHT: OnePlus 5T

    With the announcement today of the OnePlus 5T, I decided to include it in the latest of our FIGHT: series of comparisons. So, without further ado, I give you the OnePlus 5T pitted against our three previous winners, the Sony ZX Premium, LG V30 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

Comparing phones is always a somewhat emotive opinion on the part of the person doing the comparison, so I have tried to keep this one based upon facts rather than feelings. Some may argue with some of the decisions and some may need explanation. The winning phone in each category is shown in dark green and gains 2 points. Where no obvious winner exists, "highly commended" scores are in light green and gain 1 point)

...this newly altered scoring card has produced yet another set of mixed results. While the LG V30 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 are still kings of the hill, the Sony ZX Premium has dropped back, and the OnePlus 5T has taken it's place. However, this is mainly due to it's impressive camera specifications; should the camera prove to not be as good in reality as it is in numbers (as has been experienced on the OnePlus 5), then we may need to revisit this comparison.

As it stands right now, our new 2017 list of winners contains:

LG V30
Samsung Galaxy Note 8
OnePlus 5T

    • Yesterday Microsoft released another build to the Windows insider fast ring. Read on to see what's new in build 17083. This is a bit of an odd build in that it seems at first sight that there's not a whole bunch that's new, but that's not really the case; this build includes lots of smaller, but equally important changes and improvements. Having said that, the biggest change in this build is related to fonts. As of 17083, fonts can now be bought, installed and managed from the Microsoft Store. It may not sound like much of a change, but actually it will make font management a hell of a lot easier for yon average user. Here's what Microsoft says about the font changes: The full release notes are here.

    • A new year and a new build ... after almost a month of inactivity, Microsoft today released a new Windows 10 insider preview build, 17074. New in this build is a new take on localisation - rather than downloading language packs "as part of Windows", you now get them from the Microsoft Store. Why the change? Who knows, but apparently it's for the better.

      In addition, there's a whole skew of updates for Edge, pushing even more epub and ebook features into the browser.

      As ever, click here for the full release notes.

    • After a break of a few weeks, Microsoft have finally released a new build of Windows 10. Read on to find out what's new in build 17063. The big change in this build is Timeline - this is a brand new major feature that's designed to allow you to more easily see what you were doing at some point in the past. i.e. a timeline on your PC activity. As Microsoft put it: In addition to this, there's the usual raft of fixes and improvements to Edge, with Cortana getting a bit of love as well. The full release notes are here
