The HTC Rezound is now available on Verizon Wireless. The big draw of the Rezound is its heavy Beats by Dr. Dre integration and its 4G LTE connectivity. We got a chance to check out the device when HTC unveiled it on Nov. 3 and found it to be another strong entry into Verizon’s library of LTE phones. It’s the third of four known dual-core 4G LTE devices coming to the carrier this year. The Droid Bionic and Droid Razr are already out and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is coming in the next couple weeks, from what we hear. 

We’ve included some links to our hands-on impressions and videos of the device in action below, but here are some specs. The handset has a 4.3-inch screen with a 720p display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera that can shoot slow motion (HTC has industry leading cameras), and cost $300 with a two-year contract. The Rezound will ship with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), but HTC has promised an Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) upgrade in the coming months.

How to see your frame rate on Steam Deck
Two players using Steam Decks to play Stardew Valley.

The Steam Deck might have a fancy OS that makes it easy to browse and play Steam games, but it's essentially just a standard handheld PC. That means anyone with enough tech-savvy can modify the device to their heart's content, loading different operating systems and playing games outside the Steam library without many restrictions.

One of the most requested features is the ability to see your frame rate, as this ensures your games are running properly and your handheld PC is performing as expected.

Is this cheap Android phone better than the Galaxy S24? I found out
The back of the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus.

Before I put my SIM card in the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus, I had seen several reports and YouTube videos claiming it would be a great purchase if you didn’t want to buy an expensive smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy S24 or even the Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max. Wow, I thought: It must be really special. While it's not especially cheap, the latest Redmi phone does look like a good value, at least on paper.

Well, it is quite good, but there’s absolutely no reason to buy it if you can stretch to a more expensive phone. Although it hasn’t been any trouble, I’m itching to switch to a different phone, and it’s one that costs exactly the same amount of money to buy. The reason why isn't to do with the specs as such but to do with life with the phone.
It's not all about the numbers
