Android notch: iPhone X look-alikes you can buy

Apple has always been regarded as a trendsetter, whether or not the trends have made sense or not. No matter how much some critics bash it, Apple’s trends, especially around design, often get copied by others. “Others” here being Android phones. Nowhere is that perhaps truer than the divisive notch on the iPhone X. Many of Apple’s own fans have lambasted it but, if MWC and certain leaks are to be considered, it’s pretty much the next big trend alongside bezel-less screens. So if you’re in the market for a notched Android phone and don’t mind being compared a lot with the iPhone X, here are some of the top choices, from those already in the market to those still coming soon.

A 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus could fix Apple’s iPad headache

A 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus could fix Apple’s iPad headache

For a long time, Apple obstinately stuck to one of the smallest touchscreens in the smartphone industry.

ShiftCam 2.0 and ProLens: truly mobile iPhone pro photography

Lens clips for iPhones and others smartphones are nothing new. They offered interchangeable lenses, a feature that still escapes even the most advanced smartphone camera. They all, however, have the same design disadvantage. You have to attach the lenses every time you use them and detach them when done. Not only do you run the risk of losing those lenses, that’s also precious seconds lost trying to set it all up. Last year, startup Shiftcam introduced a case and lens system that resolved all those. Now they’re back with ShiftCam 2.0, a more refined and more powerful version that won’t make it look like you have an armored phone in your pocket.

Apple will release more iPads at some point, and on the 21st of February, 2018, clues indicated the next iPad's release. These devices were listed as A1954 and A1893.

Galaxy S9 vs iPhone X: Why you see no choice in 2018

In the year 2018, most Americans only consider one of two smartphones to purchase as their next mobile device. One is the iPhone, the one and only choice for many users who've only ever owned an iPhone and don't plan on switching any time soon. The other is the Galaxy S9, part of the Galaxy S line that's held the "wow" factor in many other American minds over the past half-decade. But why is that?
