Apple iPhone XS

IntroductionSame. But different. And yet the same. The iPhones are masters at being that, especially the S series. What Apple obviously can't do is come up with clever names. Worse, the XS may as well go down in history as the worst labeled phone ever. Two letters but one is a Roman numeral. What could go wrong? The iPhone XS is here, like it or not. And it's the best iPhone ever made if anyone had doubts that Apple will make a worse device this year. It's the fastest, the prettiest, the sturdiest, the most luxurious, the most skilled, the most expensive. And yet, it's the same iPhone. But you can buy it in golden color now, so people could know it's different. Jokes aside, the S has always meant Speed in Apple's universe, and the iPhone XS is the bearer of the next generation Apple chip - the A12 Bionic. It's the first (available) system-on-chip made by the high-tech 7nm manufacturing process, offers a 15% faster processor and 50% faster graphics. But the hi…

LG V40 ThinQ

That's precisely what LG thought when designing the V40 ThinQ, the first smartphone to go both wider and longer than 'normal'.LG was the pioneer in ultra wide angle phone photography, but others didn't seem to think it mattered. Well, they're coming to their senses, some (Huawei) quicker than others (Samsung, maybe?). Meanwhile, LG has been guilty of not having a telephoto lens and now that's been fixed too. We don't doubt that eventually every high-end phone will have all the cameras, but we're still in the realm of firsts. With so many of them happening recently, we almost got carried away - the V40 ThinQ is in fact the first phone to come with 5 cameras (in addition to the three on the back, there are two more on the front) - hence the Penta Camera moniker. And they are, in fact, 5 distinct standalone cameras - we're looking at you and your 'depth sensing camera&#…
