As MWC 2019 begins this week, phone makers are readying themselves to announce new handsets that are able to connect to the latest generation of cellular technology known as 5G. Samsung, for instance, already announced its Galaxy S10 5G on Feb. 20 at its Unpacked event, and more are expected to follow.

After all, the grand promises Qualcomm and carriers are making with 5G coverage don't mean much if you can't access the network with your own device. Now playing: Watch this: 5G smartphones are coming 2:25 US carrier … [Read more...] about Galaxy S10 5G isn’t the only 5G phone coming. Here’s a (probable) list of more

This is the one you're looking for. (When I reviewed the iPhone XS a month ago, I told you you should wait before buying. I'm glad I did.) With the iPhone XR -- available for preorder now, in stores on Oct. 26 -- Apple has created an iPhone that delivers 95 percent of the high-end iPhone XS experience at 75 percent of the cost. Yes, there are compromises: The screen and the camera take small steps back from the XS models, along with a few other feature nips and tucks. But in using the XR for nearly a week after living with the XS, the only feature I truly missed was the rear camera telephoto lens. Oh! And the iPhone XR makes a few improvements on its more expensive siblings.
