One of our members had Gigabit (1000Mbps) Internet installed at their residence. On a wired Ethernet connection, they measured download speeds at 600Mbps and upload at 800Mbps, while wireless (Wi-Fi) showed 500Mbps and 700Mbps, respectively. According to our members, the download speeds are normal, but the upload speed is better than usual. To get better speeds, one of the offered solutions was to get an 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) router. Those, unfortunately, are still just making it to market, and can command $500 or more.
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 Honor V30 will be a flagship that can challenge even the Mate 30. Some promo photos of the device have surfaced on Weibo, showing a square camera on the back reminiscent of the Mate 20. The rear camera on the back is more interesting, the main sensor is said to be 60MP. Not 64MP, indicating that this is a sensor we haven't seen yet (it's similar to the Huawei flagships, which use 40MP instead of 48MP sensors like the rest of the industry). The Honor V30 Pro will have a bigger battery with faster charging to boot – 4,200mAh and 40W SuperCharge in addition to 15W wireless charging. The V30 will get 4,000mAh and 22.5W SuperCharge instead, no wireless charging.
