Keeping up to date with the latest smartphones
The world of mobile technology never sleeps, with new devices being released all the time. Here you’ll be able to keep up to date with all the latest and greatest handsets as they appear on the shelves.
iPhone Xs/Xs Max
Both of these new iPhones truly awe-inspiring. They boast the same dual 12MP cameras for great-quality photos, and Face ID for secure unlocking and payments.
They also share the same A12 Bionic chip, which is 50% faster than previous iPhones. Quite simply, it’s the smartest and powerful chip ever in a smartphone. And they both offer up to 512GB storage space – the most in any iPhone.
The big difference between the two iPhones is display size. The 6.5-inch Super Retina HD display on the Xs Max is the largest that’s ever been on an iPhone. The Super Retina HD display on the Xs, meanwhile, measures 5.8-inches (that’s the same as iPhone x).

Samsung Galaxy Note9
The Samsung Galaxy Note9 is crammed with amazing features, and there’s really only one place to start – that iconic S Pen.

For example, you can use it as a remote clicker to give your presentations a professional touch, and it also works as a camera shutter button up to 10 metres away. Then there’s all the usual cool S Pen stuff like jotting down notes without needing to unlock your phone, getting creative with doodles and drawings, and easily highlighting text to cut and paste.
The Note9 also has an incredible Quad HD+ 6.4-inch display, an amazing dual lens 12MP + 12MP camera that takes great low light photos, and a monster of a battery.
