samsung galaxy s10 5g

Price: £1,099 from fave.co/30PqkAD Samsung just couldn’t afford to miss out on 2019’s raft of Android smartphones with ‘5G’ at the end of its already convoluted S10 product names. Meet the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. Unlike the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G and Oppo Reno 5G that are physically identical to their 4G versions, the S10 5G is a different phone altogether. It has a larger screen, bigger battery and an extra camera in comparison to the S10+. Does that mean it’s worth the asking price of over a grand or a high-cost contract in the UK? I tested the S10 5G on Vodafone’s sparkly new 5G network to determine whether it’s worth it or whether you should a cheaper, still excellent, regular S10 or S10+. Price The S10 5G is available direct from Samsung for…

xiaomi mi 9t

Price: £293 from fave.co/2y2ZzfV The Mi 9T has a lower price and, arguably, a more balanced specification than other Mi 9 models, losing the flagship processor and wireless charging of the standard Mi 9, but retaining its in-display fingerprint sensor and adding a higher-capacity 4,000mAh battery. It uses the same 48Mp triple-lens camera as the Mi 9 SE, but at the front is fitted with a 20Mp pop-up selfie camera that enables a truly full-screen experience on its 6.39in Full-HD+ AMOLED display. Price A rebadged Redmi K20 Pro, the mid-range Mi 9T is now official in Spain, France and Italy, but has not yet been announced in the UK. Xiaomi has not confirmed if or when it will launch here. UK users can get hold of the Mi 9T through GearBest, however, where it…

We’ve spent some time gaming on the Red Magic 3, and here’s what we think. Price This is one of the more budget-friendly gaming-focused smartphones on the market, especially with premium features on offer. You can buy the phone from the Red Magic site fave.co/32O63xq), and comes in two variants; an 8GB RAM, 128GB storage variant for £419, or a high-end 12GB RAM, 256GB storage variant for £529.

best gaming phones

From the moment we first booted up our Nokia 3310s to spend hours on Snake, before our smartphones became clogged with Candy Crush Saga, playing mobile games has been a popular pastime. Increasingly, though, handsets are becoming viable gaming devices alongside home consoles. Indeed, such is their power that sensations such as Fortnite and PUBG can thank modern phones for their ridiculous runaway success. And it’s no wonder considering the power inside the best models around. While the latest Apple and Samsung handsets are capable of running the most demanding mobile games, the market is so popular that there are also dedicated gaming phones such as the Red Magic 3, Asus ROG Phone, Razer Phone 2, OnePlus 7 Pro, and Xiaomi Black Shark. Do you need all the highest specs? These handsets often…

google keep notes tips

Google Keep Notes might be the most underrated of Google’s services. It’s more than just a place to jot down your thoughts – it’s also the missing link to bring Docs, Calendar, Photos, and the rest of Google’s services together. Here are 10 tips and tricks to unlock its full potential. 1. Take a voice memo While most people use Google Keep Notes to type quick notes to themselves, you can actually get your thoughts down far faster by using your voice. In the bottom menu on the main screen, you can tap the microphone icon to speak your note to Google Keep. It’ll both record and transcribe everything you say, so even if Google’s dictation engine misses a word, you’ll still have a record of it. 2. Transcribe text from a photo Audio…
