APPLE'S ludicrously expensive £999 iPhone X could be getting a major price cut this year. A top industry expert believes Apple is planning to sell a successor model for as low as $600 – that's just £450. Legendary analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple is aiming for a "more aggressive" strategy for the prices of new 2018 iPhones. Countless reports suggested that Apple has struggled to flog last year's 5.8-inch iPhone X, which costs anywhere from £999 to £1,149. Kuo says this year we'll see three models, including a budget handset with a 6.1-inch LCD screen priced at $600 (£450). He also predicts that there'll be a slightly more expensive 5.8-inch handset with a better OLED screen that'll cost around $800 (£600). And finally, there'll reportedly be a top-tier model called the iPhone X Plus, with a 6.5-inch OLED display. This will reportedly cost as little as $900, which is around $670.

Honor announced its new flagship today at a jam-packed London event right by the River Thames. The Android handset also features the first "ultrasonic" under-glass fingerprint sensor found in its bottom border.

There's also iPhone X-style face-recognition tech, which is housed in that aforementioned notch and can unlock the device by scanning your face. But notch haters will be happy to know you can black-out the panel using the phone's software. The artificial intelligence system that powers the feature is also … [Read more...] about New Honor 10 flagship smartphone looks and acts like an iPhone X but costs just £399
The Apple iPhone X offers several helpful features that are beneficial to mobile gamers, including its OLED display and the improved performance of the A11 chip. However, users are now discovering that the phone actually has an adverse effect on one mobile game in particular. Pokemon GO players are now beginning to report that the game is significantly harder to play on the iPhone X. In a post on Reddit, one disgruntled player explains that due to the design of the iPhone X screen (it is edge-to-edge and doesn’t have a traditional home button), developer Niantic has changed the way that battles look in the game. Instead of expanding the visible area, it appears that Niantic has simply zoomed in on it instead. This cuts off the left and right areas that are visible when Pokemon GO is played on other devices. Because of this change, legendary Pokemon in the game are much more difficult to catch. “iPhone X users essentially run out of screen real estate trying to swipe … [Read more...] about iPhone X Makes Pokemon GO Legendaries Harder to Catch
