Galaxy S9 and S9

The world largest mobile manufacturers, Samsung have launched its new s9 and s9+ models, making its series continue. They didn’t bring any new or outstanding feature but made improvements in the existing one.

The improvements have been made in the camera department, with the variable apertures allowing you to change between f/2.4 and f/1.5. This feature was not available in s8, with the super slow motion feature, shooting up to 960 frames per second in 720p.

Now coming to the design the design of s8 was widely criticized for placing the fingerprint right next to t he back camera making it hard to reach. Fans liked the fact that Samsung has finally managed to place the finger print sensor in the right position below the camera in s9.

Vivo made quite show this year with its new apex concept. It also featured a bezel-less screen with close to 90% screen to body ratio. The finger print sensor is placed on the bottom half of the screen.

The working is really simple, you just place your finger anywhere at the bottom half of the screen and it detects your fingerprint like a normal sensor.

Another main feature in the phone is the double finger print system. You can make the vivo apex to read two different finger prints at the same time for more security.

Andy boxall from digital trend points out, that you can use this feature to add finger prints of two people to unlock the phone, this system is helpful in a situations where the phone is used by the  for  banking or other business, allowing your partner’s finger print as well.

Now talking about  the front camera, it’s not built into the display, unlike all the other phones you have seen before, a mini camera will slide outside when you are taking selfie and will automatically slide back in when you will switch to the back camera, quite impressive.

ASUS

ASUS Zenfone 5 and 5Z

ASUS Zenfone 5 and 5Z

Redefining the term iphone rip-off, asus released the zenphone 5 line featuring 3 phones which looked familiar.

After watching the image, the phone seems quite familiar to the iphone x. since its launch, the zenphone is been termed as an iphone clone. The phone has the feature of wireless charging and water proof feature. It offers all the things that iphone x offers at low price. All this still doesn’t save it from bad publicity.

The bad news is that none of the zenphone is water resistance. Whereas the asus was also copying iphone’s design and they made their own animojis as well, and they are called zenimoji.

The fact is that they almost copied everything from apple without any hesitation; while also referring to apple’s flagship as the fruit phone x. like you can’t make stuff like this.

For defending their product the company’s officials were quick and went on so far to even mock the iphone x ironically leaving the tech enthusiasts disappointed.

Think that they copied the world most famous phone and got the guts to back it up by pretty statistics.

LG

LG V30S ThinQ Morrocan Blue

LG V30S ThinQ Morrocan Blue

The phone v30s thinQ with 6gb ram and 128gb of storage was released at the conference, which is a rebooted version of v30 which was released in 2017.

Beside all this a new laptop the mate book x pro, was also released and the design was undoubtedly inspired from the design of apple Mac book. This didn’t stop it from being praised, most importantly for the thin bezels making for a 91% screen to body ratio.
