Design, display, and durability They may be aimed at similar market segments, but the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and iPhone 11 Pro have noticeably different designs. The Note 20 retains the angular, squarish dimensions of its predecessors (unlike the Note 20 Ultra), while the iPhone 11 Pro sticks with the curved edges and divisive notch of the iPhone XS and X.

Design, display, and durability It may offer a considerable discount over Samsung’s premium phones, but the Galaxy A71 5G is still a stunner. It comes with an impressive and sizable edge-to-edge display with a punch-hole selfie at the top-center, as well as a rectangular camera bump on its reverse side that recalls the Galaxy S20.

I didn’t notice any performance deficit. I like gaming on the Xperia 1 II. I played mostly casual games, spending way too much time on Hill Climb Racer, mostly because the phone is very comfortable to hold in landscape orientation. The widescreen 21:9 aspect ratio looks great, the screen is incredibly sharp, and I didn’t really miss a higher refresh rate either. When playing more graphically intensive games like Real Racing 3, the phone copes superbly and never gets hot. … [Read more...] about Sony Xperia 1 II review: Stand out from the crowd
Moment Thin Photography Case The Pixel 4a has a flagship-level camera, but with only a single lens, it lacks some hardware tricks, like wide-angle shots. You can fix that with this case from Moment. A special attachment over the lens hole takes one of Moment’s range of lenses, and with a simple twist, you can add wide-angle, fisheye, or macro lenses, adding a completely different spin to your photography. It’s fairly protective, and there’s a lanyard point as well, so a wrist strap can be added. However, be warned that this case is expensive for what it is, and the lenses themselves aren’t cheap. … [Read more...] about The best Google Pixel 4a cases and covers
