The battery is where both phones drift apart again. The Note 20 Ultra is fed by a 4,500mAh battery, while the Note 10 Plus depends on a 4,300mAh cell. It may be the case that the extra 200mAh doesn’t make a significant difference in practice, yet it could still mean that the newer phone offers users one or two more hours of daily use. Our review of the Note 10 Plus found that it doesn’t last as long as you might expect, particularly when 4,300mAh is already a large battery size. … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra vs. Galaxy Note 10 Plus: New or old?

Byte Before TikTok, there was Vine. At its prime, the viral app had over 200 million active users creating and watching six-second skits. While Vine’s success was short-lived, one of its original founders, Dom Hofmann, has created his next video-sharing app in hopes of competing with TikTok. Byte allows users to create and publish videos that are up to 16 seconds long. Unlike most of its competitors, the app is already compensating users who generate a good amount of viewership. You can like videos or “rebyte” them, which is basically reposting. The app interface is user-friendly, and, like TikTok, you’ll be able to explore a variety of video categories like comedy, animation, and more. Byte is fairly new — it launched earlier this year — so you can expect plenty of updates and improvements as it matures. … [Read more...] about The best TikTok alternative apps for Android and iOS
Hasselblad’s latest camera mixes the old and the new for what the company is calling a “truly distinct” shooting experience. Previously teased last summer as a concept camera, the Hasselblad 907X 50C is a 50-megapixel medium format camera that looks — and even sort of shoots — like a classic Hasselblad. … [Read more...] about With a 50-megapixel sensor, the Hasselblad 907X 50C is vintage in looks only
The reveal was little more than a development announcement, with things like pricing and availability still up in the air. A few technical features were detailed, however. The CFV II 50C, as its name implies, uses the same 50-megapixel medium-format sensor of the X1D, and we’re certainly not complaining about it. When used with the 907X, the tilting touchscreen evokes the waist-level viewfinders of film-era V system camera bodies. The display retracts to rest flush with the camera body, leaving the classic profile intact, right down to the gently curved corners. The only other giveaway that this is a modern digital camera is the USB-C port on the side. … [Read more...] about Hasselblad’s CFV II and 907X are a modern take on a photography classic
Take the Cinema Pro app. It gives you complete control over how you shoot video on the Xperia 1 II, from the focus to the shutter speed, the white balance, the ISO, and even the overall look of your footage. I’ve no doubt that if you’re well-versed in using a pro-level camera to shoot video, the features will be clear and you’ll be shooting top-quality video immediately. If you’re like me, someone who leaves the camera on Auto, then the learning curve is very steep and you’ll shoot a lot of rubbish video before arriving at something halfway decent. The thing is, you could just shoot using the normal camera app and cut out all the sweat and swearing that comes from trying to wrangle Cinema Pro’s settings correctly. … [Read more...] about Sony Xperia 1 II review: Stand out from the crowd
