Android, the world’s most popular mobile operating system, will soon enable a security protocol that helps keep internet service providers (ISPs) from spying on users. “DNS over TLS” adds a level of encryption to your DNS requests that are (mostly) inaccessible by your ISP. A DNS — or domain name server — translates a website address from a URL you enter in the address bar to the IP address the computer recognizes when serving the actual website. Web addresses (like thenextweb.com) are nothing more than window dressing for ease-of-use. When a user types in a URL, it’s converted behind the…...

For comparison the OnePlus 5 only costs $20 less, but has a smaller display despite being a much larger phone overall. The cheapest OnePlus 5 comes with 6GB…...
