New Moment photo cases and lenses are a big plus for the OnePlus 6T

Moment is the king of high-quality photography tools for smartphones, with a range of lenses, cases, and other equipment that makes taking high-quality video and pictures a snap. Unfortunately, Moment only supports a fairly small range of smartphones, so you need to have the right device to take advantage. Thankfully, you can add two more phones to that pile, as Moment has just announced it will be stocking cases and lenses for the OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 6T.

If you’re not familiar with Moment’s range, it consists of a variety of lenses, gimbals, lights, and other useful photography gear, all of an extremely high quality. The kicker is that since much of the equipment is attached to a phone via a protective case, it’s not really possible to use Moment’s kit with a phone it hasn’t specifically supported. Those lucky OnePlus fans are about to be included in that exclusive club, with the release of Moment cases for the OnePlus 6. Moment has also taken the opportunity to upgrade its cases, adding more protection against drops, an improved and strengthened lens interface, and increased coverage at the bottom of the case.

Cases for the OnePlus 6 will be available in black canvas and walnut wood from December 11, at the price of $30. If you’re rocking the OnePlus 6T, you’ll have to wait a little longer, as cases are not shipping until February 2019, but you’ll still be able to find them in black canvas and walnut wood, and for $30. However, if you’re quick off the mark, you can get 15 percent off all OnePlus cases for the first 24 hours with the code “OnePlus6.”

All of Moment’s lenses will work with the OnePlus 6 and 6T cases, including the macro lens, 58mm telescopic lens — which we’ve explored in great detail here — and the movie-emulating anamorphic lens. Moment has put together an in-depth video exploring the new OnePlus case and the huge variety of lenses that can be attached.

Moment has also been tweaking its Pro Camera App, and has released version 3.5 of its iOS app today. Available for both iOS and Android, it gives a huge amount of control over images and videos, featuring a live histogram, shooting in RAW, dual-channel audio, and tons more. It will cost $2 on Android and $5 on iOS.

These Android apps are spying on you — and there’s no easy way to stop them
Illustration of a giant eye stalking through a phone

Android’s security woes need no introduction, but another threat that hasn’t received its fair share of awareness relates to spyware and stalkerware apps. These apps can secretly be installed on a victim’s phone to monitor their activity and can be exploited to harass victims of domestic abuse and engage in online stalking. All someone needs is physical access to the victim's phone to install these apps, which is not too difficult in cases of domestic abuse.

Call it an app-fueled version of AirTag stalking, but on steroids, because these spyware apps can steal everything including messages, call logs, emails, photos, and videos. Some can even activate the microphone and the camera, and secretly transfer these recordings to a remote server where the abuser can access it. Since Google Play's policies don't allow stalking apps, these apps are sold via third-party websites and need to be sideloaded.

Buying a new smartphone is always a gamble in terms of customer satisfaction — mainly because they cost so much and can be so different from the device that the buyer is currently using.

To combat this, OnePlus is giving customers the chance to try the OnePlus 11 entirely risk-free. Starting today, the company is running the "100 Days No Regret" program, which allows OnePlus 11 buyers to use the new flagship for up to 100 days and still be eligible to return it for a full refund.

Samsung’s Galaxy S23 is here, and it's quickly become one of the best phones you can buy in 2023. For $800, you’re getting a small but mighty phone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset, long-lasting battery life, and a powerful triple lens camera system with a 50-megapixel main shooter.

But how does one of the best Android phones stack up against Apple’s smallest flagship, the iPhone 14 Pro? It has just as many cameras as the Galaxy S23, a powerful 48MP main camera, and costs $200 more than Samsung's handset.
