iOS upgrade rates continue to destroy Android

iOS upgrade rates continue to destroy Android iOS 12 admittedly isn't chock full of dazzling new features, but that, of course, is by design. 

After a sluggish few years in the Android world, 2019 is set to be a smash-hit for smartphone fans . Folding phones are on the horizon, display hole (punch hole) cameras are coming to make displays even bigger, and goodness knows how many cameras we ’ re going to see. If you want to know more

But we'll also tell you the best camera phone to grab if fantastic photography is a greater consideration for you, or if you ' re buying on a shoestring.

Apple loved the design on its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus from 2014 so much that it ended up reusing almost the exact same design for not two, not three, but four consecutive years. The iPhone 6s was exactly the same, the iPhone 7 added a dual-lens camera on the Plus model, and the iPhone 8 swapped out the aluminum back for glass. Still, each of those iPhone models was indistinguishable from its predecessors from afar. Thankfully, big performance boosts and nifty new features such as Portrait Mode photography on the iPhone 7 Plus and wireless charging on the iPhone 8 were introduced to help keep things fresh.

For a long time, Apple had introduced new iPhone designs every other year, and some people thought the company might go back to that pattern now that its new iPhone design identity was introduced on 2017’s iPhone X. If you were hoping that would be the case though, we may have some bad news. It appears as though Apple is just as pleased with its 2017 iPhone X design as it was with the iPhone 6, because a new leak from a top smartphone industry insider says Apple will use the iPhone X’s design for a third consecutive year on its upcoming new “iPhone 11” series handsets.

After about 18 months filled with smartphones that looked exactly the same, it appears as though 2019 is going to be an exciting year for smartphone designs… if you’re an Android fan. Samsung is going to start the year off strong in February with one of the most exciting smartphones the company has ever made.

Google Assistant will soon be listening on one billion devices

Google Assistant will soon be listening on one billion devices Google has some news to go alongside its giant pavilion that dominates the lot outside the main halls of CES 2019. The company expects that, by the end of this month, its Google Assistant will be... assisting on one billion devices, across Android phones, iPhones, TVs, headphones, watches, smart speakers and smart displays. And the other weirder things. So, in the voice assistant stakes, how does this compare to Amazon? Well the retailer recently cheered that it has sold 100 million Alexa-connected devices across the world.

If you ' re looking for the best cheap smartphones available today in 2019 then you've come to the right place. If you ' re looking for an alternative to one of those expensive handsets or the best smartphone for Design -wise the phone looks great despite sporting a plastic back plate and the phone looks Is this the year Sky Q ditches the dish, goes fully voice controlled and truly tailors its programme

Android phones come in all shapes, sizes and price points — it's all a bit daunting. That's why we use and test every Android phone available to But if you just look at the spec sheet and the features, you ' re missing out on the bigger picture: the Pixel 3 XL is an amazing phone to use and experience.

The world’s top smartphone vendor by volume steered clear of Apple’s notched iPhone X design last year. In fact, Samsung is the only noteworthy Android phone maker that didn’t steal Apple’s iPhone design last year (oh, the irony). In 2019, Samsung is skipping the notch and moving to a nifty new design. The Galaxy S10 series will feature an all-screen design with barely any bezels above or below the screen. Instead, the front-facing camera will be placed in a small hole cut out of the top-right corner of the phones’ displays.

The good news if you’re an Apple fan is that Apple is indeed said to be working on similar designs for its iPhone lineup. The bad news, however, is that its iPhone models with HIAA (hole in active area) technology aren’t expected to be released until 2020. This year, Apple will apparently release new iPhones that look a lot like its old iPhones, but with a new triple-lens camera on the back. On the front, it looks like Apple’s “iPhone 11” will still feature a notch like the one on 2017’s iPhone X and 2018’s iPhone XS/XR. Here’s a pair of tweets from Ice Universe, a top smartphone industry insider known to share accurate information about unreleased smartphones:

Android Q will reportedly have system-wide dark mode

If you want an Android phone that will always have the latest firmware and security updates, while also offering a fairly stock experience, then Microsoft continues to update its compelling software suite for iOS devices and the latest update to Outlook is designed to help you get things done faster.

That second tweet refers to a leak from Sunday that showed renders of Apple’s purported 2019 iPhone design. Only the back of the phone is visible in the leak, and it shows a new triple-lens camera cluster that will be considered by some to be an eyesore. But the bigger issue people might have is referenced in Ice Universe’s first tweet above. Instead of adopting a modern smartphone design this year, Apple will stick with the notch.

If you’re an iPhone user looking for an upside, the good news is that we might have one for you. Whereas smartphones like the Galaxy S10 will have transparent holes in their displays that leave camera lenses visible, Apple is said to be working on technology that will hide the camera lenses embedded beneath its displays. If true, it would mean the entire front side of Apple’s 2020 iPhone models will appear to be screen with no empty space at all.
