New Apple iPhone XS and XR can also work when there is no battery left

The gadget enthusiasts were recently treated with the new iPhone XS, XS Max and the XR. The new iPhones by Apple have a better battery life compared to their predecessors. The XR device is expected to deliver the best battery life out of the three. There can also be cases when the battery will run out before the users get a chance to recharge it and could lead to some unwanted consequences.

However, Apple has come up with a solution for all the three devices and can make the iPhones work even when there is no battery life to perform a few tasks. Apple revealed the new phones last week and then it has said that all of the devices support Express Cards with power reserve, but had not explained what it actually meant. This is a new iPhone feature that will allow the users to use the NFC chip even when the battery is dead.

The feature might not sound much impressive but if the users are using the iPhone to pay for transit or get access to the building then it can be really useful and helpful. The company has updated its iOS Security documentation with more details mentioned about the Express Cards transactions. The new feature will work with the help of a transit card which is designated as the Express Transit card and Student ID cards with Express Mode turned on.

However, the feature is limited to paying for transit as well as unlocking the doors with the help of Student IDs. This means that other people might not be able to take the advantage of it as for now or any time soon. If the phone is shut down the always-on support for NFC transactions will not work. At the same time the Express Cards with power reserve feature is not a must have feature for the mobile devices.

Dell XPS 13 9380 (2019) Review

Dell's flagship laptop returns to us in 2019 with refreshed specs, a brand new webcam design and a cheaper model. We review the XPS 13 9380 in full.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
The XPS 13 for 2019 ticks all the boxes. It looks great, the build quality is excellent, it’s nice and portable and has a wide range of specs to choose from.
While not a massive upgrade from last year's model, it’s had some solid refinement including getting the webcam back into the top bezel and also introduces a more affordable Core i3 edition.

Huawei P30 Pro Release Date, Price & Specs Rumours

Huawei's MWC press conference didn't include an announcement of the P30 range. Instead, it will hold a launch event in Paris at the end of March. We round up rumours, speculation and more on the new Huawei line-up, including the expected P30 release date, price and specifications.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

iHealth Core Review

This smart scale from iHealth offers detailed body composition measurements, from BMI to visceral fat rating. Find out what we think in our iHealth Core review.
Should I Buy The iHealth Core? We like the way that the Core and Lite scales interact with the other iHealth products, and the Core offers a bunch of useful metrics with which to monitor your health. Setup is easy and the app's graphs give a decent visual representation of your health-metric trends as you progress.
