Not only is the Surface Book 2 now available in both 13-inch and 15-inch options, it also features updates to the design and powerful internal hardware. The display can still be removed from the keyboard and touchpad, and can still be replaced backward to sit flat as a complete package. The 13.5-inch display has a 3,000 x 2,000 resolution and a 3:2 aspect ratio, whereas the 15-inch model comes in with a 3,240 x 2,160 resolution.
If you need top performance, the 15-inch model is where you want to look, offering up inside an eighth-generation, quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of DDR3-1866MHz RAM, and a 1TB PCIe solid-state drive (SSD). For gaming or multimedia editing, you can also take advantage of the NVIDIA GTX 1060 GPU with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM.
Battery life here is impressive; get about 10 hours from the 15-inch model and about 11 hours from the 13-inch model. An IR camera for Windows Hello logins is seated above the display, and the keyboard and touchpad are some of the best around. If you need a true desktop replacement for your Windows laptop, this is it.
Available in both 13-inch and 15-inch configurations, Microsoft’s new Surface Book 2 (starting at about $1,500) is our top choice when it comes to Windows laptops. The modular design allows you to use your laptop as a tablet, and powerful hardware inside, including eighth-generation Intel processors (CPU), up to 16GB of RAM, and dedicated graphics cards (GPU), makes either size a true desktop replacement.
Bottom line: For a powerful desktop replacement with a beautiful display and removable keyboard, you have to go with the Surface Book 2.
With the onset of another year, the market is bound to be filled by a range of new Android phones. Being a lover of the OS gives you a great advantage as you can easily buy a new phone without breaking the bank. Here is a great list of the 5 best Android phones that you could buy for cheap in 2018.
ZTE Axon 7
The company ZTE has come a long way since their phones that used to be not so reliable in the past. The new ZTE Axon 7 is possibly one of the cheapest and not so popular brand to support Daydream VR technology. Under the hood, it is powered by a cool Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM and the large 5.5-inch display with 2560×1440 display should appease most buyers. The phone costs $399 and offers a lot for the asking price.
The 2018 edition of the Nokia 6 with a 600 series Snapdragon processor is a better pick. However, the older Nokia 6 with a big camera, stock Android experience and a pricing of just $199 is the cheapest Android you could get. The display, build quality and everything else speaks of Nokia’s brand value from the past.
Moto G5 is the continuation of the successful G series Motorola built way back in the 2013 and it still matters in the highly competitive market. The phone has Snapdragon 430, not the best yet good enough, has a 13-megapixel camera and can be purchased for as low as $149. It also runs stock Android Nougat out of the box.
A kickass phone which has been selling like hotcakes in almost every country where it got launched. The pricing of the phone is its best point as it costs just $249 and sports an amazing display with great brightness levels. The phone has a dual camera setup in the rear for photographs with bokeh effect, has a fingerprint sensor and a premium quality metal finish.
Ah! The good old days of Google and their Nexus devices that didn’t cost an arm and leg like the Apple iPhones. However, times have changed and Pixel phones have replaced them. Yet, if you could find a Nexus 5X priced between $240 and $299, you get great display, powerful hardware specifications and Vanilla Android experience. Besides, it still is one of Google’s best product and is extremely cheap as sellers are trying to get rid of the stocks.
Most of the time I heard from Apple users that its nearly impossible to shift your self from iPhone to Android but we have different views this time and most of the people upon asking expressed that iPhone X enabled them to shift. Know the reasons
The iPhone X is an impressive piece of hardware, but with a starting price of $1000, it’s hard to recommend over some Android flagships on the market.
Some of the specifications of the iPhone X include a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a QHD resolution, IP67 water and dust resistance, a stainless steel frame, an A11 Bionic processor with 3GB of RAM, dual 12-megapixel rear cameras with OIS, a 7-megapixel front-facing camera, stereo speakers, a 2716mAh battery, support for wireless charging, Face ID facial recognition software, and iOS 11.
Do you think the iPhone X is worth it?
So, is iPhone X — wait. Stop the review and rewind that. I can’t stick to being purely analytical with this one.
I’ve now spent a week with iPhone X as my primary device. So far, it’s the most fun I’ve had with any gadget since the original iPhone. I’m not being hyperbolic here. There are shortcomings. There are things I’d love to see changed. But I can’t stop using it. The new display is beyond gorgeous. HDR is glorious. Fluid navigation gestures are sublime. Face ID is so fast I’m forgetting I have a passcode. Attention aware interactivity is the bomb.
I’ll still walk you through all the little details and give you a ton of #protips. I’ll still share plenty of gripes. And I’ll update this review throughout the next week and month. But know that I’m going to be smiling the whole time. Because iPhone X might just be the best damn product Apple has ever made.

Thankfully, things are slightly different this year, but mostly just for the iPhone X. Apple’s most ‘out-there’ phone design yet instantly makes the X stand out, even though it’s been leaked to death in the past few months. Like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG V30, the screen on the iPhone X stretches right to the edges and the once huge bezel has been shrunk right down. It’s a striking, futuristic design that is so much more eye-catching than your typical iPhone.
The biggest design oddity will likely be the cut-out at the top that dips into the screen. This houses a myriad of sensors and the front-facing camera, and it looks a lot like the Essential Phone. It’ll be interesting to see whether or not having a portion of the screen blocked off will be annoying, but we suspect it’ll be easy to get used to. Both latest iPhones all have glass backs, which we do think looks nice but we’re not convinced about its durability.
Apple is expecting to make more money this holiday season than ever. It is expected to make as much as $87 billion in revenue in three months out of which iPhone X will be responsible for $30 billion sales.
Tim Cook encourages people to buy an iPhone X by saying that “So if you think about that, that’s a few coffees a week. It’s less than a coffee a day at one of these nice coffee places.” Well, that must be some REALLY nice coffee place. Tim said this in the fiscal Q4 call where the major focus was iPhone X.
Tim Cook is right in a way. As if you get the iPhone X through Apple upgrade program, you’ll get it for $56 a month. If we break it down, that is less than $2 a day. And a coffee surely costs you around the same amount of money.
“The iPhone X orders are very strong for both direct customers and channel partners, which as you know are lots of carriers throughout the world. As of a few minutes ago, the first sales started in Australia. I’m told we had several hundred people waiting at the stores in Sydney, and I’m getting similar reports from stores across that region.”
