You don’t need an expensive phone, so don’t buy one

This year is the first in smartphone hardware in a long time in which I felt like no game-changing changes came from any company. The smartphones revealed by HTC, Samsung, Apple, and the rest - they were all solid.

Things haven't been looking all that great for the launch of the iPhone X.

A new report claims to have the exact number of iPhone X handsets that will be available in the first shipment from Foxconn, and it seems that initial batch will be smaller than anticipated.

Galaxy S9 tipped to answer iPhone X Face ID, TrueDepth

Even though we're still months out from the reveal of the Galaxy S9, there have already been plenty of rumors about the device.

Apple Pencil for iPhone 12 tipped in Korea

A new tip on Apple's stylus-laden future has come to light, this time making a play for the next-generation iPhone. We're so extremely far away from the next iPhone right now that I'm taking a total stab in the dark with the name iPhone 12 - it could also be the iPhone Pro, or the iPhone 11 (even though X is 10, and 11 should then come in 2018, and this device is tipped for 2019). The more important point right this minute is the suggestion that the next iPhone might have its own stylus, not unlike the Apple Pencil.

iPhone X’s Face ID to replace all Touch ID in 2018 tips analyst

Apple may be splitting the game between Face ID and its existing Touch ID system on iPhones in 2017, but don't expect to use your fingerprints much longer. The company is said to be ditching Touch ID altogether, in favor of the hands-off system that debuted this year on the iPhone X. That's despite suggestions from some quarters that Face ID was a stopgap measure as Apple faced technical difficulties with its original scheme.

iPhone X release supply may slim as Apple refines TrueDepth

A report from Taipei suggested today that the iPhone X is struggling with a bit of a production delay. Sources suggest that this delay has to do with manufacturers struggling to perfect the dot projector portion of the 3D sensor setup in the iPhone X's sensor array. Analysts believe that while Apple's manufacturing speed at the launch of iPhone X may not be ideal, but mid-October remains the go-date for mass production.

Android OEMs now looking into Face ID tech

Android OEMs now looking into Face ID tech

Like it or not, and many definitely won't, Apple has a tendency to set trends and even, sometimes, rewrite history. There has been no small amount of speculation and debate regarding Apple's use of 3D face sensing technologies to replace its fingerprint-based system, but now that the iPhone X and its Face ID feature is real, it seems that Android smartphone makers will be following suit. That is the picture being painted by popular KGI Securities analyst Ming-chi Kuo, who, somewhat ironically, initially doubted reports of Apple using face recognition in the first place.

Amazon made its own iPhone dongle, beating Belkin in price

Last year, Apple removed the standard 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7, a "courageous" move, but one that has put us in a world where dongles are now the norm. With Google's new Pixel 2 smartphones also ditching the 3.5mm jack, the era when we could charge our devices and use wired headphones at the same time is quickly coming to an end. Fortunately Amazon is here to rectify the situation, at least for iPhone users, with a dongle that slightly undercuts Belkin's new solution in price.
