iPhone XS LTE benchmarks proves it’s better but not the best

One of Apple's biggest spiels about the iPhone XS and XS Max is their improved LTE performance. That's thanks to its overdue adoption of 4x4 MIMO technology. In theory, that should shut Samsung up over its claims of download superiority. But how does it perform in practice? Separate benchmarks apparently show how much the iPhone XS improved over its predecessor. Unfortunately, they also show how Qualcomm may still have a bargaining chip over its new enemy.

Punkt MP02 is a 4G Android phone for calls and not much else

We live in a smartphone-centric world so it’s not surprising that there is a sort of counter-culture rallying against it, from advocating analog/physical notebooks to pushing for simpler mobile phones. The latter often means going old school but also wasting the power of the Internet, not to mention the money you pay for data plans. Swiss company Punkt, which almost sounds like “punked”, has a compromise. The Punkt MP02 is a simple 4G phone that lets you still use the Internet, except that you’ll need a separate computer or device to do so.

Huawei AI Cube bakes Alexa into an odd 4G LTE router

Huawei has launched an LTE-connected smart speaker and router, the Huawei AI Cube, complete with Alexa built-in, but the weirdest thing about it is the shape. Making its debut at IFA 2018 today, the Alexa speaker may be called a cube, but in fact it's a stubby cylinder. Huawei does say the design may change before launch, but what shouldn't are the capabilities.

Qualcomm woes pile up: iPhones with Intel modems, failed NXP bid

Qualcomm woes pile up: iPhones with Intel modems, failed NXP bid

Qualcomm just can’t seem to catch a break these days and continues to find itself at the center of controversy. Its biggest headache right now is its fight with Apple over patents and royalties. But it may now be feeling the repercussions of challenging what is also one of its biggest customers. Qualcomm has practically and publicly admitted that Apple’s upcoming iPhones won’t be using its LTE modems.

Qualcomm uses Ookla Speedtest to diss both Intel and Apple

Qualcomm uses Ookla Speedtest to diss both Intel and Apple

Just recently Samsung released a short ad that mocked the iPhone X’s slower download speeds, at least compared to the Galaxy S9. That ad based its boast on Ookla’s recent “Speedtest Intelligence” report. Now that same report is being used by Qualcomm to also flaunt its latest Snapdragon 845 with its latest X20 LTE modem. But while it specifically mentions Intel LTE modems as the target of its campaign, it is also making a slight jab at its latest new enemy: Apple.
