But when you look at everything as a whole, it's clear what guided the direction of the Note this generation. With the Note 9, Samsung slung huge banner ads reading “4,000mAh” and “1TB.” These were the major selling points for the phone. With the 10 series, it's not about that at all. The Note 10 Plus is still better than ever, because if it wasn't Samsung's “best Note ever,” it wouldn't sell any units. But if you look at the key marketing points of the Note 10 series, it is all about design.
The Epic Game Store's battle against the PC gaming monopoly of Steam continues. For many months, the vocal opposition has made it very clear that they are unhappy with Epic's strategy of buying timed exclusivity deals with games, thus beating Steam to the punch of some of the most highly-anticipated releases.

The Red Magic 3S is a smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor, a 5,000 mAh battery, a least 8GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.0 storage, a 48MP camera, a metal chassis, and a 6.65 inch, 2340 x 1080 pixel AMOLED display with a 90Hz screen refresh rate. In other words, if you can get past the gaming aesthetic in this phone's design (including an angular rear cover with an RGB light strip down the middle), it's just a phone with flagship-class specs at a surprisingly low price. The starting price gets you a model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, but you can also pick up a 12GB/256GB model for $599.
