The iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are sequels to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max - if there was any doubt. They are just as big, with similar designs and screens, but come with improved performance, some big camera upgrades, larger batteries, and a new Apple U1 wideband chip. Indeed, there is a lot to explore, so don't let the familiar looks fool you. The new triple camera is brand new, though. Now in addition to the wide and tele shooters, there is an ultrawide snapper. Night Mode finally makes it to the iPhones, and the 4K capture at 60fps gets the cool extended dynamic range as well. Probably the most awesome feature, showing off the power of Apple's chip, is the option to shoot with all four cameras (incl. selfie) at once. At 4K at 60fps with no limits. Imagine that!
Huawei is having a bad time. You wouldn't know it by looking at the Mate 30 Pro, a gleaming piece of kit that exudes luxury and cutting-edge tech. But then you unlock the phone and reality comes crashing in: there's no Gmail on this thing, or YouTube, or Google Maps. Worse, there's nothing Huawei can do to help. You're supposed to find your own alternatives, hunt down APKs on third-party app stores, or resort to web apps.
Google is updating its Pixel Buds lineup with a new set of truly wireless earbuds that support Google Assistant voice interactions, feature adaptive sound to adjust the audio according to your environment, and a compact design that Google says allows the new Pixel Buds to sit nearly flush with your ear. That price includes a set of earbuds plus a charging case the company says you should get up to 5 hours of battery life from the earbuds on their own or up to 24 hours when you carry the case with you.
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.
