Fresh leaks about Samsung Galaxy S9 reveal killer features

With the iPhone X, that lowers the monthly payment from $41.67 to $22.22.

Samsung said on Tuesday that it's now mass-producing 512GB flash storage chips that will enable smartphone makers to launch new smartphones that provide users with extra space for movies, music and apps.

If you were tempted to believe that the best smartphone you could purchase is the iPhone X, you were mistaken.

The iPhone X didn't fare well on durability or battery tests, but it did earn the highest camera score out of all the smartphones tested by Consumer Reports.

Consumer Reports says, "We tumbled three samples of the iPhone X. The first was fine after 50 drops, but the glass on the back was significantly cracked after 100". The other two similar smartphones suffered screen damage after 50. "Though the front glass didn't crack, several bright green bars stretched across the screens from top to bottom".

Apple has already issued a warning that the OLED screen might have some problems with prolonged use and the battery life and the size of the iPhone X are slightly more than iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus which makes the latter phones much more consumer friendly.

It's pretty likely the next LG flagship, the LG G7, will also rock the Snapdragon 845, and later on in the year a potential next-generation Google Pixel phone will have the chipset. The second was the Galaxy S8 Plus while the iPhone 8 Plus came out third.

In addition, Consumer Reports had some issues with the iPhone X's battery life.

Interestingly, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus fared better in Consumer Reports' comparison due to one possibly overlooked factor: durability.

SamMobile added, "That would make it harder for someone just glancing at your phone to see what's being displayed, while being simple enough for your mind to suddenly light up and recall that forgotten password".

And Face ID works very effectively. You may want to think about ways you could protect it to prevent damage. Its gesture system takes some getting used to, but it's not overly cumbersome or difficult to use.

While the coming flagships will support Samsung's new docking capabilities, it's uncertain whether the DeX Pad accessories will arrive in stores at the same time as the phones, Galaxy Club reported today.
