The sound of Samsung’s foldable Galaxy Z Fold 2 dropping into the mailboxes of US reviewers is no surprise given the device was teased three weeks ago at an event that launched, among other products, the Note 20 Ultra.
The new iPhone SE is an indulgent return to what was but a sobering reminder that even what’s old is new again has limits.
When spending less money gets you a better display, longer battery life, sharper optics, 5G connectivity and less worries, being able to fold a 6.7-inch screen in on itself doesn’t seem nearly so tempting.
For those keen on a cheap Android handset that lacks flavor but provides plenty of value, the RealMe 6 is the brand’s best bet yet.
The Mate 30 Pro was the phone with the camera so good it was almost worth considering leaving the Google ecosystem to have but the P40 Pro can’t even manage that.
After an exhausting 2018, the Reno2 Z sends off 2019 in a way that embodies the best parts of Oppo’s approach to tech.
The Nubia Z20 is more of a curiosity than commendable.
The Moto G8 Plus is great in all the ways that modern Motorola phones are but doesn’t really move the needle towards a place where they can readily compete with the increased competition in this particular price-segment.
The Motorola One Macro is no flagship but it nails the essentials - which is the most important thing for a $300 phone like it.
There are phones that are difficult to recommend - and there’s the Mate 30 Pro.
It costs a pretty penny, but you’re paying for the best
Even at the best of times, it feels like the RealMe 5 is making do with limited resources and while I was sometimes pleasantly surprised by how it fared, it rarely excited or delighted me in the way that other budget phones this year have.
If you’re looking for a phone at the $500 price-point, you could do a lot worse than the RealMe XT.
The Fold is innately compelling, truly innovative and impossibly expensive.
