iPhone X Face ID fail: Apple explains keynote issues

How secure is iPhone X's new Face ID tech?

The CES always has some company showing off foldable display but there hasn't been any practical use case of the technology.

As Apple launched the iPhone X with 3D facial recognition technology, it is time for other smartphone makers to step up their game.

"It's been known that Samsung has been working on the foldable display for many years", said IHS Market analyst Jusy Hong. Over the last few months, Samsung filed a number of patents for a smartphone that could fold into half.

Before my conversion to Apple, I did have the Nokia N95, which amazingly allowed me to watch TV on my phone, and the HTC Hero, which was the first truly decent Android phone.

To put that into perspective, the Galaxy S8 posts a 2024 single core measurement and 6279 multi-core score, while the OnePlus 5 clocks in at 1932 and 6495, respectively.

Here's Everything That Happened with Hurricane Irma This Weekend
Irma crawled across Cuba's northern coast, bearing down on the island nation as a Category 5 hurricane. He added that numerous buildings and vegetation on Necker have been destroyed or badly damaged.

Samsung may be the most popular smartphone maker out there currently, but has faced severe competition from the likes of Apple in a congested consumer market. However, The tech company has yet to officially announce the foldable smartphone's specific launch date, specs, features and price. Samsung Display is a major screen supplier to Apple.

Subsidiary Harman, the auto-systems maker Samsung acquired earlier this year, will allow consumers to complete tasks using voice commands, via the Bixby virtual assistant.

Essentially, these premium smartphones are now personal computers that fit in our pockets-with an emphasis on personal. The latest example comes on this very morning, when Samsung's mobile president tried to steal a bit of Apple's thunder by teasing an upcoming new Samsung smartphone. And the Samsung has expected to bring the Exynos variant of the Galaxy Note 8 to India rather than Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC variant.

You've got three options: upgrade to Bluetooth, buy an expensive pair of Lighting-enabled headphones, or use an adaptor that also doesn't let you charge your phone up.
