The Morning After: OnePlus’ thinner, more affordable flagship foldable

Compared to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 5, not only does OnePlus’ first foldable pack two larger displays, it’s also thinner and lighter — as long as you don’t count the hulking camera module. The most impressive thing the Open is doing is putting pressure on the price of big foldables. 


Starting at $1,700, it costs $100 less than the Z Fold 5 and Google’s Pixel Fold — and that’s before you factor in the launch deal that knocks another $200 off with the trade-in of any phone. We put it through its paces in our full review.

And if you’re more interested in Oppo’s new foldable… well, they’re pretty much the same device.

FCC’s restoration of Obama-era net neutrality protections progresses

It’ll reclassify broadband as an essential communications service.

The Federal Communications Commission voted along party lines to move forward with a plan to largely restore Obama-era net neutrality protections. All three of the agency’s Democratic commissioners voted in favor, with the two Republican commissioners dissenting.
