Similarly, we've now heard that Apple might not include a power adapter either (though you'll still get a charging cable). This could however mean costs will be reduced.

Smartphone companies are always looking at introducing new features to stay ahead in the race. And Chinese smartphone brand Oppo is reportedly working on bringing a new technology called Li-Fi on its future smartphones. For those unaware, Li-Fi is simply transferring data via light using LEDs.

Galaxy S20 Ultra or iPhone 11 Pro?I'm impressed with both phones. They take incredible photos and keen photographers would be well suited with either of them. It's clear where the S20 Ultra wins though: the zoom. Sure, at 100x or even 30x the images aren't "good" per se, but the clarity at 5x and to a lesser extent at 10x opens up a huge amount of opportunities not available to you with the iPhone's 2x lens. I loved snapping away on Calton Hill overlooking the city, and zooming in on the buildings to find interesting compositions. … [Read more...] about Galaxy S20 Ultra vs. iPhone 11 Pro camera comparison: Which phone is best?
