The Samsung Galaxy S10e brings the firm's flagship features to a new audience, with a lower price tag than the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus.Samsung's Galaxy S line has always gone toe-to-toe with Apple's iPhones and Google's Pixel smartphones – and has been matching their skyrocketing prices. So after Apple decided to expand its flagship lineup with a lower-cost model, it's not surprising that Samsung has done the same – but the S10e isn't just the 'iPhone XR for Android'.Okay, the parallels are tough to ignore, so we'll lay them out here: the S10e ('e' for 'essential') lacks several of the flashier features of the pricier S10 and S10 Plus, but keeps the essential advances (like the high-powered processor), and it retails for the same price as the iPhone XR in the US (it's cheaper than the XR in the UK).The Samsung and Apple phones offer different experiences and features, so you won’t necessarily be picking between them – if you're a brand diehard, you'll … [Read more...] about Hands on: Samsung Galaxy S10e review

Smartphones are getting more powerful every year, and increasing numbers of people are now using them for many of the tasks we used to rely on our PCs for. Browsing the internet, checking emails and messaging friends and family around the world can now be done from those useful little rectangles we carry around in our pockets.Smartphone manufacturers have been claiming that their devices can replace laptops and PCs for a long time, but we're now at the stage where it finally seems like the hardware has caught up with those promises.As TechRadar’s computing editor, I’ve been sceptical about those claims, but with the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which comes with some undeniably impressive specifications, and DeX functionality that allows the phone to be hooked up to a monitor (and mouse and keyboard) so that it can be used like a traditional desktop PC, I was intrigued. Could this be a smartphone that I can use for day-to-day tasks rather than my PC?I decided to … [Read more...] about Can I really ditch my PC for a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 smartphone?
