Huawei Beats Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max, Samsung Galaxy S10+ In New Rating

Huawei is the company you can’t write off. Sure, it has problems with the U.S. government and its latest phone, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, is still awaiting a wide release outside China, but it still manages to achieve surprising things.

DXOMark is best known for its camera reviews, giving authoritative scores for, among other things, the photographic capabilities of smartphones.

Currently its top-ranking camera on a phone is the Huawei Mate 30 Pro which has a score of 121, never beaten and only equalled by the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro Premium (which, incidentally should surely have won the award for snappiest name, no?). It won this award because the overall camera score beat the nearest contender, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, handsomely.

But that’s not the only surprise win Huawei has had in recent weeks.

DXOMark also conducts audio reviews, and Huawei has gained the very top score here, too.

Apple Releases iOS 13.2.3: Another Unexpected Update With Vital Changes

Forbes David Phelan The Huawei Mate 20 X, a huge phone with a whopping 7.2in display, most recently updated to a 5G version, has beaten every other phone tested in this way by DXOMark.

The company said that the Huawei phone was released as a multimedia powerhouse, and it praised the phone extensively, comparing it favorably to phones including the latest Apple flagship, the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

DXOMark said:

The Huawei Mate 20 X is the top scorer in our Audio tests of all the devices we’ve tested thus far, with its Overall score of 75 besting Samsung’s S10+ by ten points and the Note 10+ by 9. It is also the only Android phone we’ve tested that scored above Apple’s large-screen iPhone XS Max—although only by one point. The Mate 20 X did particularly well when playing back movies and music, achieving a substantially higher score for those use cases than any of the other phones we have tested. While still the top scorer among the Android devices we tested, its performance while gaming was less stellar, and behind both the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Okay, so it’s only just better than the latest iPhone, just one point, but it pretty conclusively beats the Samsung Galaxy S10+.

So, what does this mean?

Well, for a start, it confirms that Huawei phones are increasingly well-crafted and offer genuine standouts.

But perhaps it also shows Huawei to be ahead of the curve. Audio quality is only just becoming a thing, though several phone manufacturers, such as Nokia, for instance, have been boasting of their handsets’ sound capabilities for some time.

But with bigger screens, designed to let you watch video and play games, better audio becomes increasingly important.

Huawei’s skill is that as it improves the camera, screen, battery life and innovation levels on its phones, it’s not neglecting any part of the package, recognizing audio as an aspect that needs careful attention, too.

Galaxy Note 10 Exclusive Reveals Samsung’s Surprise Upgrade

Samsung is heavily redesigning the Galaxy Note 10 with some killer tech, but it appeared the company was about to blow the basics. Until now.

CONCEPT CREATOR

Following news Samsung is pulling 25W fast charging from the Galaxy Note 10 (seemingly because it’s rubbish), popular insider Ice Universe has updated his information to reveal Samsung will actually fit a charger more powerful than 25W. Moreover, I have also been able to verify this myself through a trusted source.

“You should be thinking bigger [not smaller]. That’s all I can say about it right now but expect to be pleasantly surprised and not disappointed when the charging specs are released publicly,” revealed my source.

Similarly, Ice Universe added the image of Superman’s S logo in his update leading many to believe this teases 50-watt charging. While seemingly outlandish (the Galaxy S10 has a 15W charger), this is actually very real with Oppo’s SuperVOOC charger hitting approximately 50W and charging its Find X Lamborghini from 0-100% in just 35 minutes.

With this in mind, when Ice Universe notes Samsung’s “battery capacity and charging speed will no longer be Samsung’s weaknesses” and could even be an advantage, 50W is the bar set by the competition.

Furthermore, if Samsung nails this then it could prove to be the cherry on the top. We already know the Galaxy Note 10 will outgun the S10, feature a better camera and Verizon has let the cat out of the bag that the Note will have 5G at launch. So throw ballistic fast charging into the mix and Samsung is going to have a big hit on its hands.

Samsung Pay Comes to Africa, Launching In South Africa – Toby Shapshak

1.jpg

Samsung Pay, the mobile payment from the world’s largest smartphone maker, has launched in South Africa.

Calling it the first such service in Africa, Samsung has partnered with two of South Africa’s big banks, Absa and Standard Bank through MasterCard and Visa cards.

The system took three years to set up, says Sung Yoon, president and CEO of Samsung Electronics Africa, working with the banks and the regulatory body, the Payments Association of South Africa (Pasa).

Because of the country’s mobile-first nature, he says “acceptance of Samsung Pay at launch in South Africa is much better than 2015 in the US when it launched. People in South Africa understand the technology better today, too, than users in the US did three years ago.”

Samsung Pay uses Galaxy handsets from the world’s largest smartphone maker to make payments using both MST and NFC technology – or tapping your phone on a point-of-sale terminal.

Once the app has been installed and credit cards have been added, people can make a payment just by authenticating themselves in the app – using a Pin code, fingerprint or iris scan.

The security is built on its “defence-grade Samsung Knox security platform and biometric authentication” which it installs on its smartphones.
