2. Xiaomi Mi 9 SE may soon be launching globally

The Mi 9 SE that was announced last month is currently available only in China. But that may change soon as the smartphone has been listed on Xiaomi Global's compliance page which hints at the company planning to expand its availability.

However, don't get your hopes high just yet as there are some other smartphones listed on this compliance page that never made it outside of China. But in the case of the Mi 9 SE, we have seen earlier evidence leading us to believe this one will.

There's no word from Xiaomi regarding the global availability of Mi 9 SE, so we will have to wait until more information comes in.

The Mi 9 SE is a toned down version of the Mi 9 and is the first smartphone to come with a Snapdragon 712 SoC. It has 6GB RAM and up to 128GB of storage in tow. Other specifications include a 5.97-inch Full-HD+ display, triple rear camera (48MP + 13MP + 8MP), and a 20MP front camera.

The Mi 9 SE features an in-display fingerprint scanner and packs a 3,070 mAh battery with 18W fast charging support.

3. Akshay's 'Kesari' creates new box office records on first day

This Holi, the box office turned Kesari, courtesy Akshay Kumar's recent release.

Based on the Battle of Saragarhi, Kesari is one of the most talked about movies of the year.

Given the palpable excitement for Akshay's war drama, the movie set the box office on fire.

Helmed by Anurag Singh, Kesari created new records at the box office on the first day itself.

. Surprising all, 'Kesari' emerges as highest opener of 2019

After the intriguing trailer left the audience mesmerized, it was expected that Kesari would open to a decent collection.

But much to everyone's surprise, the war drama went on to emerge as the highest opener of the year.

Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to declare, "Kesari roar. Emerges the biggest opener of 2019 [so far]. Thu Rs. 21.50 cr. India biz".

.'Kesari' replaces '2.0' to emerge as Akshay's second highest opener

Furthermore, Kesari went on to become Akshay's second highest opener ever.

The first place is taken by Akshay's 2018 release Gold, which opened to an impressive collection of Rs. 25.25 cr.

While Gold was followed by Akshay-Rajinikanth's 2.0, with the first day collection of Rs. 20.25 crore, it has now been replaced by Kesari.

We wonder how many records Kesari will shatter.

. 'Kesari' is the story of 21 brave heart Sikh soldiers

For the uninitiated, Kesari narrated the story of the Battle of Saragarhi, which is said to be one of "the bravest battles ever fought" in the history of the world.

This battle was fought between 21 soldiers of the British Indian Army's Sikh Regiment and 10,000 Afghan tribesmen in September 1897.

The regiment, which was led by Havildar Ishar Singh, fought till their death.

. 'Kesari' leaked online by TamilRockers, just a day after release

Meanwhile, Kesari became the recent target of piracy giant TamilRockers and was leaked online just a day after its theatrical release. According to media reports, the movie was available for free download in HD quality. Would this affect the movie's collections? Only time will tell.

4. Motorola One Vision image leaks revealing punch-hole display and 48MP rear camera

We heard quite a lot about the Motorola One Vision in the past couple of days. The smartphone paid a visit to Geekbench and later its detailed specs leaked online. It also popped up on Wi-Fi Alliance's website bearing model number XT1970-1 and running Android Pie. Now today, we are treated to an official-looking press render of the One Vision, which shows its design.

This image comes to us courtesy of Tiger Mobiles. It reveals the phone has a punch-hole display with the selfie camera located in the left corner. The display has small bezels on its left, right, and top, with the chin being comparatively larger.

Moving on to the back, we have a dual camera setup placed vertically in the left with a dual-LED flash down below. The cameras also have text to their right which confirms one of them will be a 48MP unit.

The back of the smartphone, which seems to have a glossy finish, is also home to a fingerprint scanner with Motorola's signature bat-wing logo atop, and further down below, we have the Android One branding.

Other things we can ascertain from this image is that the One Vision will come with a USB-C port placed at the bottom which will be flanked by a speaker and a microphone. We don't see the headphone jack which means it's either placed at the top, or Motorola decided to ditch it.

The One Vision has the SIM card slot located on the left, with the volume rocker and power button sitting on the right. The lockscreen of the phone has the date of April 3 which is when it may go official. You can also see the pill-shaped button at the bottom which indicates the phone will run Android Pie out-of-the-box.

The Motorola One Vision looks the same as the P40 that leaked last December. Well, that's because these are likely the same phone which will be launched under different names in different markets. The One Vision is reported to launch in Latin America, India, and Brazil, with the P40 being China-exclusive.

You can head over here to check out the detailed specs of the One Vision. The P40 will likely have the same hardware, but there could be some differences between the two in terms of RAM and onboard storage.

5. Next-gen iPhone to come with Wireless PowerShare capability

The iPhone 11, or whatever name Apple manages to come up with for this year's release, will reportedly come with Wireless PowerShare support, supply chain sources reveal. Introduced by IDT in 2015, the Qi-based standard for reverse wireless charging (as in, charging other devices off of your smartphone) is supported on the Galaxy S10 series, but the feature was previously available on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

In the Apple realm, having Wireless PowerShare will mean, for example, being able to charge your Apple Watch without carrying its own charger around. Additionally, the second edition AirPods, announced this week, are available with a case that can be charged wirelessly - just how convenient it would be if you can do so from your iPhone 11.

The one issue is that present iPhones don't charge all that fast themselves - at least not with the bundled ancient 5V/1A adapter. The company does make an 18W PowerDelivery adapter that it sells separately, for which you need an extra USB-C to Lightning cable, the two costing a total of around $50. Well, word on the street is, that combo will come bundled with the next-gen iPhone, which will retain the Lightning port. It's not as great as having a USB-C port on the phone in the first place, but baby steps is better than no steps at all.

6. Honor 8X global variant receiving Android Pie-based EMUI 9 update

Earlier this month, Honor released an Android Pie-based EMUI 9 update for the 8X in China. Now the company has begun rolling out this update for the phone's global variant.

This Android Pie-based EMUI 9.0.1 update weighs a whopping 3.14GB in size and brings along improved sound recorder, faster app launch times, simplified UI, and Huawei Share 3.0 to the 8X. It is currently rolling out in Macedonia, but we expect a wider rollout soon.

Last week Honor confirmed it would release Android Pie for the 8X in India starting on March 18, but we haven't heard anything on that later. The company has said that it plans to release the update in batches this month so we expect the Indian units to get an update notification anytime now.

7. vivo V15 and V15 Pro availability expands to the Philippines

Chinese phone maker vivo unveiled the V15 Pro last month and made the V15 official earlier this month. Both these smartphones are already available in a couple of markets, and the latest country they have made their debut in is the Philippines.

The V15 is priced at PHP17,999 ($342) and the Pro variant is priced at PHP23,999 ($456). You can pre-order the V15 until March 29 and the V15 Pro until April 11 with sales starting after those dates.

The V15 is powered by the Helio P70 SoC which is coupled with 6GB RAM. It's built around a 6.53-inch notchless display and has 128GB of storage onboard. The smartphone features a 32MP pop-up selfie camera and boasts a triple camera setup at the back consisting of 12MP, 8MP, and 5MP modules. It comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and packs a 4,000 mAh battery under the hood.

The V15 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 675 SoC and has 8GB RAM. It's equipped with a slightly smaller screen (6.39-inch) and battery (3,700 mAh) but rocks a 48MP primary camera at the back instead of the 12MP one on the V15. It also comes with a fingerprint scanner embedded under the display, with the selfie camera and storage remaining the same as V15.

You can head over here for a detailed specs comparison of this V15 duo, and here for our detailed written review of the V15 Pro.

8. Beats will launch true wireless earbuds in April

CNET learned from a reliable source that Apple-owned Beats plans to release a new totally wireless update to the PowerBeats sport headphones. Apple’s AIrPods are quickly becoming the most popular pair of Bluetooth earbuds and a new Beats alternative could reportedly launch in April.

Apple recently announced updated AirPods with improved battery life, hands-free “Hey, Siri”, and an updated H1 wireless chip. It is believed that Beats’ new earphones will have the same Hey Siri feature, the updated H1 chip, and perhaps better battery life than the AirPods.

There’s no firm information about how much these Beats earphones would cost, but given the AirPods $160 (or $200 for wireless charging) price tag, they shouldn’t cost too much more. CNET speculates Beats could launch with a $250 price tag but suggests they should be $200 or below. The current PowerBeats 3 Wireless retail for $199 and Apple is Apple so… $250 it is.

The new PowerBeats would be a great alternative to those who don’t like the design of the AirPods or would rather use something sleeker. There are other truly-wireless earbuds out on the market now like the $130 Samsung Galaxy Buds or some of the Chinese alternatives from both Huawei and Xiaomi but for iOS users’ sake, any earphones with the H1 chip will work infinitely better for those on the iOS and/or MacOS ecosystems.

9. Huawei P30 and P30 Pro will shoot dual camera video, company confirms

Huawei might as well just call the P30 phones “announced” and get it over with. The latest leak comes from its Singaporean site and does a good job of succinctly listing the best features of the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro as well as detailing the launch promos.

Buying a P30 or P30 Pro on launch day – April 6 – from the VivoCity mall will net you a free Huawei Watch GT and JBL Clip 2 speaker. These freebies are worth a total of SGD 467 ($345/€305). Europe will be getting the watch too (but perhaps not the speaker).

As for the specs (as if we haven’t seen them leaked a thousand times by now), the phones will offer attractive gradient-colored exterior, high-end cameras with great low-light capability and an interesting Dual-View feature.

Dual-View Video will be enabled after launch with an OTA update. It creates split-screen video with two of the rear cameras, showing a wide and a zoomed-in view of the scene.

Other specs include a 40MP “SuperSpectrum Sensor”, capable of shooting at “super high ISO” and low-light video recording. The Huawei P30 Pro will also feature a periscope camera (10x hybrid zoom) with OIS and a ToF sensor.

In Singapore, the new P30 phones will be available through M1, Singtel, StarHub and Lazada.

10. Samsung Galaxy Fold appears on Geekbench, doesn’t impress with scores

Geekbench got an interesting visitor - the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The foldable smartphone didn't score quite as high as its Snapdragon 855 and 12GB RAM suggested.

What that suggests is that the software on the unit that ran the benchmark is far from finalized and Samsung still has plenty of work to do before the April 26 launch.

Another interesting bit is the SM-900F naming, which is the international variant of the phone. If that one is using the Qualcomm chip it's a clear confirmation that we are not getting an Exynos version of the Fold.

Recently, the Fold appeared in a leaked video where we got a glimpse of it in both its tablet and phone glory. Not much could be said in terms of its performance though as the video only lasted several seconds and the device was never confirmed to be a retail version.

11. Scammers caught playing hidden video ads and draining smartphone batteries

Have you ever wondered why your phone has a drained battery in the middle of the day? It might have something to do with a faulty application, running scam ads unbeknownst to you. According to fraud detection firm Protected Media, Ad Stacking was spotted in codes, provided by an ad technology company Aniview. Ad Stacking is essentially showing you one ad, but in the background it is playing multiple videos at the same time, destroying your battery life.

This type of fraud hurts not only you, your device and data cap, but also companies who pay for impressions and views, as well as applications and platforms who are buying and selling advertisement real estate for smartphones. Advertisers are told people are watching their clips but there isn’t enough response, so they have to pay even more.

Craig Silverman, a reporter at BuzzFeed News, contacted Israeli company Aniview which runs a video ad technology platform. Alon Carmel, company CEO, denied any involvement and said the code was created by third-party subsidiaries and exploited by another party. In the video above you can see that a pretty much regular banned about McDonald's or Michael Kors actually has multiple videos hidden behind it.

The reporter declined to name the application or its owner, mostly because they were most likely out of the scheme and were just carrier rocket of the scam. If you have issues with battery draining from any of your apps, consider uninstalling it and letting developers know before more people and their smartphones fall victims of such frauds.

While the last few days of the year gone by were spent looking back, it’s now time to look what lies ahead. The year 2019 is expected to see new launches, innovations and features in the smartphone industry.

The latest WhatsApp feature to be made available for Android and iPhones (iOS) users are the Whatsapp stickers, which are said to improve the overall user experience.

Apple has finally pushed out iOS 12.1 update to enable dual-SIM functionality on the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. Unlike Android smartphones where you get two physical SIM card slots, Apple’s dual-SIM feature works differently across the world, except China.

The latest Apple iPhone users have an option of one physical SIM and one eSIM as part of dual-SIM functionality, although as of now only Reliance Jio and Airtel are offering the eSIM option. Apple did mention Vodafone during the iPhone launch presentation, but unfortunately, the company is yet to provide eSIM services in India.

Needless to say that physical Nano-SIM card option works the same way as any other phone, but eSIM option is usually enabled from operator’s side. Here’s how you can enable dual-SIM on your iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR if you are on Airtel (first reported by FoneArena).

Steps to enable dual SIM on iPhone XS, XS Max and XR

Step One

To begin with, update your phone to iOS 12.1

Step Two

Send an SMS to 121 – Type “eSIM” <space> “registered email id” (in case you don’t have registered email, then get in touch with customer care to register it first).

Step Three

After the SMS, you’ll receive an email from Airtel that will have a QR code.

Step Four

Scan this QR code using your iPhone by going to Settings > Cellular > Add Cellular Plan. (Alternatively, you can also manually install these values.)

After this, iPhone users will receive a confirmation SMS from Airtel and they will be required to reply with the consent for activating eSIM.

Watch Video: Apple iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR First Look
To note, all three Apple iPhones – iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR – take physical Nano-SIM as primary by default and eSIM as secondary. But if you like to change the order of these SIM cards, then it can be configured from the Settings menu.

Apple not just revamped the Mac and iPad hardware line up at its ‘Special’ event on October 30 in Brooklyn, New York, but also gave an official introduction to iOS 12.1. The rollout of the new OS version was announced by Apple CEO Tim Cook at the end of the event. This comes to all the eligible iPhone and iPad devices that are running on iOS 12 or iOS 12.0.1. Here’s everything new that is coming to your iPhones and iPads. Group FaceTime: Chat with up to 32 people at the same time This is one of the most highlighted features of iOS 12.1. Group FaceTime, which was showcased at WWDC 2018 conference earlier this year, will make it possible to perform a FaceTime call with a total of 32 users. It automatically detects who is speaking and makes the user’s display icon more prominent on the screen. The feature is also integrated in the Messages app making it easier to start a FaceTime call directly from the group chat. 70-plus new emojis Apple iOS 12 also brings new emoji characters onboard for iPhone and iPad users. The update includes 70 new emojis featuring characters with red hair, grey hair, curly hair and bald head. There are different emojis for animals, sports and food as well.

Dual-SIM support

Another key feature rolled out via iOS 12.1 update is the support for dual-eSIM cards. This is, however, limited to iPhone XS, iPhone XR and iPhone XS Max only. This means users can now switch between two telecom carriers using just one SIM card.

Depth control in camera

The iOS 12.1 update also brings Depth control feature to the iPhone cameras. This essentially improves the Portrait shot with ‘professional-level bokeh’ look. Users can also adjust the depth of field in real time before they press the shutter button. It is also available for TrueDepth front-facing cameras.

How to download iOS 12.1

You can check for the iOS 12.1 update on your iPhone and iPad devices by navigating through Settings > General > Software update. It is worth adding that the device would require over 50% battery charge and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Apple’s iPhone XR has been available online and in stores since this past Friday, and it already seems like it’s going to be a huge seller for Apple. There weren’t really any long lines to be found at Apple stores over the weekend, but the world’s top Apple insider reported that pre-order demand was very strong. Some plugged-in Wall Street analysts thing the iPhone XR might even end up being Apple’s best-selling iPhone during this product cycle, which sort of makes sense. The iPhone XR isn’t “cheap” by any stretch of the imagination, but it starts at $749 while the least expensive iPhone XS will cost you $1,000. Most impressive, perhaps, is the fact that the iPhone XR delivers the same kind of power and speed as the more expensive iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. It’s powered by the same A12 Bionic chipset and has mostly the same specs, and that’s also why it’s a massive threat to all the Android flagship phones out there right now — it’s much more powerful, much faster, and even less expensive.

If you’re one of the many people who already got your hands on a new iPhone XR, you’re undoubtedly enjoying it right now. You also probably took your time to pick out the perfect color since there are so many options. Well, we have some good news for you this morning: The “notch wallpaper” made specially for iPhones has finally been updated and is now available for the iPhone XR.

Remember when the iPhone X was first announced last year and everyone started freaking out about how much they hated it? Heck, even we hated the look of it when we first saw it. Then when you get the new iPhone in your hands, you realize two things. First, the notch actually looks pretty cool and it’s very nice to have the screen extend all the way to the top corners of the phone. And second, you don’t even notice the notch anymore after using the phone for a little while.

The notch design is still a central part of Apple’s iPhone designs this year, and some people like to show it off. In fact, a whole lot of people like to show it off! Graphic designer Hideaki Nakatani, who goes by @heyeased on Twitter, is known most commonly for the crazy iPhone glitch wallpapers he used to make back in 2016. The most popular one was definitely the crazy black wallpaper that caused the iPhone’s dock and folder backgrounds to disappear. It looked amazing on the Jet Black iPhone 7 and the matte black model, but then Apple fixed the little bugs in iOS that made those wallpapers possible. Luckily, Nakatani decided to turn his attention elsewhere and make other kinds of wallpapers for iPhones.

His most popular wallpaper right now by a wide margin is a special series of wallpapers that were made for the iPhone X last year and then updated last month for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. These awesome wallpapers are mostly black so they show off the deep blacks that OLED panels are loved for, while also saving precious battery life in the process because black doesn’t cause pixels to light up on OLED screens. Second, they really show off the notch perfectly because they have a thin border that wraps around the edges of the screen. Here’s what it looks like on the iPhone XR:

But wait, Nakatani’s notch wallpaper isn’t available for the iPhone XR, you say. Good news: it is now! The graphic designer emailed us to share the news that he now has a collection of notch wallpapers in all different colors that are custom-made to fit the iPhone XR’s display. What’s more, they come in the exact colors Apple offers on the iPhone XR so that you can match it perfectly.

As always, this new collection is completely free and available to download from Nakatani’s website. Just make sure that when you apply them you choose “Still” and not “Perspective,” and also don’t resize it at all. You can also find versions for the iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max right here.

Cupertino-based smartphone giant Apple is reportedly rolling out an update to its latest operating system -- iOS 12 -- on October 30. The same day as Apple is holding an event in New York where it is expected going to launch new MacBook and iPad. As per media reports, the new update -- iOS 12.1 -- will be rolled out a couple of hours after the event.

Among other features, the iOS 12.1 update is also going to enable the eSIM support in apple's latest iPhones -- iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. According to a report by 9to5Mac, quoting various telecom carriers have stated that they "are readying for an iOS 12.1 launch on October 30, coinciding with the rollout of eSIM support for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR."

Apple iOS 12.1 set for October 30 release, here are all the features it will bring to iPhones, iPads

9to5Mac also reportedly spotted Bharti Airtel India's Tweet where the telco responded to a user's tweet asking about the availability of the e-SIM support in the 2018 iPhones. "Hey Nilesh! Please be informed that Esim functionality for iPhone XS Max will be available effective 30-Oct when Apple releases iOS 12.1 Thank you, Anmol P," reads the tweet. The tweet, however, has now been deleted.
Readers must note that the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR did not come with eSIM support which the company said will be rolled out later with OS update.

As per iPhone User Guide for iOS 12.1, new features include dual-SIM support via e-SIM and Group FaceTime. The Group FaceTime will allow iPhone and iPad users to video chat with up to 32 people simultanelously. The feature is not available in all regions and in some older devices. Apple iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will support only Group FaceTime audio-calls and not video calls. Another update will be adjustment of depth when clicking a picture in potrait mode. Apple Music too will get a new layout.

iPhones and eSIM: Here's what you must know

In India, both Reliance Jio and Bharti Airtel are Apple's official eSIM partners for the latest iPhones. The country's largest telecom operator, Vodafone-Idea is still not supporting the eSIM feature in the country.

While Reliance Jio is offering eSIM support for both prepaid and postpaid users, Airtel is offering the eSIM facility only to its postpaid subscribers.
As of now, there are the only 10 countries worldwide where e-SIMs work -- Austria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Spain, United Kingdom, United States and India.
China is the only market where Apple will launch a different version of the new iPhones with two physical nano SIM card slots. These models with two physical nano-SIM card slots will be exclusive to mainland China, Macau and Hong Kong.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 is the most powerful phablet the company has ever released, and it carries a hefty $1,000 price tag to match. The Galaxy S9+ is just as powerful, and it starts at $840. Google’s newest and most powerful smartphone ever is the Pixel 3, which starts at $800. Meanwhile, the larger Pixel 3 XL version costs $900 and up. The LG V40 ThinQ is a great option if you want to stray from the beaten path, but it’ll also cost you a pretty penny with prices starting at $950.
Today is a dark day for Android flagship phones

The bottom line is that if you want real power from your flagship smartphone, it’s going to cost you a boatload. But that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Phones have been getting more and more expensive in recent years, and now there’s no ceiling in sight. Smartphone makers have focused on power and speed as key selling points when trying to warrant sky-high prices and convince customers to upgrade, but on Friday a new problem emerged. If power is what you’re looking for in a smartphone, you don’t need to spend $1,000 or $900 or even $800. Why? Because the brand new iPhone XR was just released on Friday and it wipes the floor with every single flagship Android phone in the country.

Apple never used to focus as heavily on specs and performance as Android vendors. That was mainly because specs were the only way Android phone makers could differentiate their devices. Things are a bit different now because most vendors have managed to find different niches and special designs or features that help set their handsets apart.

Meanwhile, Apple leaned more heavily on specs and performance when unveiling the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR last month than it ever has in the past. This is likely a result of the fact that the company’s 2018 iPhone models don’t introduce any new marquee features. In fact, this is the first time since the iPhone 3GS Apple has released an “S” update without a single marquee feature. Instead, Apple’s 2018 iPhone lineup is focused on three things: Bringing Apple’s reworked iPhone design to all new models, choice, and power.

Apple spent a huge amount of time during its September iPhone event talking about how fast and powerful its new iPhones are. It went into great detail about the new A12 Bionic chipset and all of its impressive capabilities. Apple even discussed the fact that it’s the first 7-nanometer chipset to power a commercially available smartphone. That’s definitely a big deal, but it’s also inside baseball and something that Apple never would have spent time on in the past.

It’s possible that Apple focused so much on power and performance this year because of how wide the gap is between its new iPhones and rival Android phones. And the thing that is perhaps most interesting about Apple’s new iPhone lineup is that the “entry-level” 2018 iPhone model is just as powerful as its more pricey counterparts. That’s right — the $749 iPhone XR is far more powerful than even the most expensive 2018 Android flagship phones. Can you imagine buying a $1,250 Galaxy Note 9 and seeing an iPhone that costs about half as much wipe the floor with it?

Geekbench is considered one of the two best benchmark tests when it comes to measuring smartphone performance. Let’s see how the iPhone XR does in the Geekbench 4 test:
Today is a dark day for Android flagship phones
Today is a dark day for Android flagship phones

And how does that stack up against the most powerful Android phones out there? Below you’ll find two charts showing the top-ranked Android devices from the Geekbench site. First, the single-core test results:
Today is a dark day for Android flagship phones
Today is a dark day for Android flagship phones

Now, the multi-core test results:
Today is a dark day for Android flagship phones
Today is a dark day for Android flagship phones

Yeah, it’s not even close. In the single core tests, there aren’t even any Android phones in the same league as Apple’s new iPhone XR. The iPhone XR score more than 1,000 points higher than the closest Android phone. That’s a staggering 45% advantage. In multi-core tests Apple’s iPhone XR has a 24% advantage, which is also huge. In the AnTuTu benchmark test that’s widely regarded as the other top way to measure performance, the iPhone XR scores over 363,500. The top-ranking Android phone in the world doesn’t even break 300,000.

Power isn’t everything, but there’s no question that it ranks right up there with battery life as one of the most important parts of the smartphone experience. Oh, and if battery life is a concern, you should know that the iPhone XR also shines in that department and beats most of the best-performing Android phones out there. The iPhone XR might not be as cheap as rumors had suggested before the phone was unveiled last month, but there’s no question whatsoever that it’s the single best value in the premium smartphone market right now.

It all started with iPhone X last year, and now it's become a trend among the smartphone makers to put a notch on top of the display.
