Today we've had a look at the Galaxy S9 as leaked over the past few weeks as it measures up to the Galaxy S8. We've also taken out the Galaxy S9+ leaks and had them measured up against the Galaxy S8+, making for an all-out war of the step-up upgrades just before Samsung's event.

Essential Phone: fixing the slippery backside

iPhone X deals? Don’t hold your breath

iPhone X deals? Don’t hold your breath

A report today suggests iPhone X won't be moved to a second-tier spot in Apple's iPhone collection: not now, not ever. Over the past several years, each time a new iPhone was released, the previous iPhone was knocked down one spot in the overall iPhone hierarchy, thereby reducing its price. Now, with the first generation of iPhone X done, that traditional movement isn't likely.
