Have we all lost our minds when it comes to smartphones? Or perhaps the better question is, have smartphone OEMs completely jumped the shark? Apple announced its new 2018 lineup of iPhones last week, and the flagship iPhone XS starts at $999. That itself isn’t too surprising, given that that iPhone X launched at the same price last year. However, Apple's iPhone XS Max takes the cake with a starting price of $1,099. Maybe I’m just a cheapskate, but that’s a boatload of money for a smartphone that isn’t all that much of an upgrade over last year’s iPhone X... Read more...
One of the biggest smartphone launches so far this year has been the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. When the smartphone went on sale last week, we ran down some of the best deals that you can get on the smartphone from all the major carriers. The thing that they all had in common was that you were tied to a contract with the carrier to get the discount. Costco has stepped in and is offering one of the better deals on the Note 9 that's going right now if you don't want a contract. The only caveat to this deal is that you need a Costco membership to save the money. Assuming you don't mind shelling out the... Read more...

With the high price that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is commanding, you might expect that many buyers would be getting the entry-level 128GB version of the smartphone that still costs $999.99 in the States and 1.09 million won in Korea. That’s not the case in South Korea, where a new report claims that over half the preorders for the smartphone have been for the more expensive 512GB version of the phone. In the States that 512GB version sells for $1,249.99 or 1.35 million won. The information cited in this report comes from industry data. The Note 9 started going out to those who pre-ordered...

If there's one bit of messaging we keyed on, with respect to Samsung's recently announced Galaxy Note 9 flagship and its high-level feature set, it was the promise of a robust thermal solution that would maintain performance over time and under pressure. Samsung claims the new Galaxy Note 9 employs a "water-carbon cooling" system, with a heat spreader for its Snapdragon 845 SoC and associated circuitry, that's three times larger than the previous generation Galaxy Note. So we figured we'd like to put that to the test. Meanwhile, we've also been spending quality time in the test lab with none other... Read more...
