In 2019, consider no Galaxy S10 or iPhone XI

Consider skipping the most expensive phones this year, looking instead to up-and-coming brands with lesser-known devices. Not because it's the cool thing to do, but because we've reached the concentration point. We're at a point where Samsung is battling Apple, and Apple hasn't made any major changes to their iPhone since iPhone X. If you want to continue using your smartphone the way you use it right now, by all means buy a Galaxy S10 or iPhone XI. If you want to try something new, consider something else.

2020 iPhones may drop LCDs entirely

2020 iPhones may drop LCDs entirely

While you can certainly argue that Apple arrived late to the OLED party, iPhones boasting the display tech have been slowly taking over the company's yearly device lineups. It may not be long before Apple decides to fully embrace OLED, which of course means leaving LCD in the dust. That's something Apple has been hesitant to do thus far, opting instead of offer LCD iPhones along costly OLED models.

Galaxy S10 benchmarks lower than iPhone XS: why it doesn’t matter

Galaxy S10 benchmarks lower than iPhone XS: why it doesn’t matter

Even before it's officially launched, the Galaxy S10 is already earning mixed "reviews". And we're not just talking about controversial punch holes and in-screen fingerprint scanners here. The past few days have witnessed the appearance of benchmarks for both the Galaxy S10 as well as its processors, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and Samsung Exynos 9820. The numbers vary depending on the source but one thing they all seem to have in common is that they fall below the iPhone XS and Apple's A12 processor. As disappointing as that may sound for Android and Samsung fans, in the end, those benchmark scores really don't matter.

Apple quietly resumes iPhone SE sales, as low as $249

Apple quietly resumes iPhone SE sales, as low as $249

Apple currently offers its widest range of flagship smartphones since their debut last fall, the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, all alongside 2017's iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. It's no secret at this point that the company isn't selling as many of the expensive new models as it hoped, but now Apple has surprised everyone by bringing back the iPhone SE. Without announcement, the budget-friendly phone returned this weekend, albeit in the clearance section of Apple's online store.

iPhone XI has more changes inside, starting with FaceTime camera

iPhone XI has more changes inside, starting with FaceTime camera

If you thought that the iPhone XS represented the pinnacle and limit of Apple’s design, you definitely have another thing coming. Of course, one can only push that now iconic notch design so far but it seems that Apple has more changes in mind, just that they’re mostly invisible. The tripe cameras on the back might be its most visible change but the lone camera on the front won’t be a slacker either.

The new iPhone XS Smart Battery Case has an annoying compromise

Apple's Smart Battery Cases for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max may offer a boost in power for heavy users, but there's a compromise in there too.

Apple wins against Qualcomm in second German patent lawsuit

Apple wins against Qualcomm in second German patent lawsuit

You win some, you lose some, as they say. Though in the court of law, even a single loss can be devastating. But Apple can breathe a bit easier now that at least the regional court in Mannheim, Germany has verbally declared that it doesn’t infringe on the patents that Qualcomm insists it does. While that doesn’t immediately affect an earlier ban imposed in Munich, it could at least give Apple some legal leverage to have that decision reversed soon.

iPhone XI leaked in new images

iPhone XI leaked in new images

A set of images of the iPhone XI, as it's apparently called, leaked this afternoon from several angles. This new smartphone looks like it'll change largely in external aesthetics more than it'll change in abilities - but looks may be deceiving. And in this case I think you might want to go ahead and hope looks are very, very deceiving since what we're seeing here looks decidedly un-Apple, if I do say so myself.
