Royole FlexPai Review: Hands-on

The Royole FlexPai is the first flexible phone, but it shows that we still have a long way to go before bending your phone becomes routine
Should I Buy The Royole FlexPai?
‘Fun but flawed’ is really the only sensible reaction to the FlexPai right now. The foldable display tech is genuinely impressive, but you can’t escape the feeling that it’s not quite there yet.
Laggy software, a plasticky finish, and worrying evidence of screen burn mean that right now the FlexPai feels like a sign of where phones are going - but proof that they’re not there just yet.



Apple iPhone XR Release Date, Price & Specs: Pre-order TODAY

The 'cheap' iPhone really isn't all that cheap at £749, but it does look to be the one everyone will want. Here's what you need to know about the iPhone XR release date, price and specifications.

With the same design as the pricier iPhone XS and XS Max but with a 6.1in LCD screen, the new iPhone XR uses much of the same hardware including the A12 Bionic chip. It's the new iPhone everyone will want, but it's not the small and cheap iPhone SE 2 we were hoping for.

iPhone XR release date
You can pre-order the iPhone XR starting today, with the phone on sale on 26 October.

It's available in a range of colours including white, black, blue, yellow, coral and red.

iPhone XR price
Starting at £749/US$749 with 64GB of storage, the iPhone XR is also available in 128GB (£799/$799) and 256GB capacities (£899/$899).

iPhone XR features and specs
The iPhone XR is very similar to the iPhone XS and XS Max, sitting between them in terms of size with a 6.1in screen. The key difference here is this is an LCD rather than OLED panel, which Apple has termed a 'Liquid Retina Display'. 

It's an edge-to-edge screen with 1.4m (1792x828) pixels and a pixel density of 326ppi. Although it's larger than the screen on the iPhone 8 Plus, the phone itself is actually smaller. It's built from 7000-series aluminium with IP67 waterproofing.

It has many of the same features, bar 3D Touch (it has Haptic Touch), such as the 120Hz touch-sensitive layer, wide colour display and tap to wake. It has no home button and instead is navigated using screen gestures.

The XR has the same Apple A12 Bionic processor as the faster models - a 7nm chip that Apple claims is faster than anything on the smartphone market with 15% greater performance on the CPU and 50% on the GPU than the Apple A11. It has just 3GB of RAM compared to their 4GB, however.

The camera setup is also the same... sort of. It's a single- rather than dual-lens camera, but the one lens it does have at the rear matches that of the XS. This is a 12Mp wide-angle camera with a six-element lens, 1.4um pixels, f/1.8 aperture and an improved True Tone flash.

Also seen in the iPhone XS is the front camera setup. The XR has exactly the same Face ID system, and all the tech at the front including the 7Mp selfie camera, with a faster sensor and f/2.2 aperture, an IR camera and dot projector, is all present and correct.

Apple compares battery life to the iPhone 8 Plus and says it is an hour and a half longer.

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Huawei P Smart 2019 Review

The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.

Moto Z4 Play Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Apple iPad Pro 2018 vs Microsoft Surface Pro 6

Apple’s latest iPad Pros are a very tempting purchase, but should you stick with the tried-and-tested Surface Pro from Microsoft? We help you decide which tablet to buy.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 Or Apple iPad Pro 11in (2018)? Two very competent 2-in-1s, one running Windows 10, the other iOS 12. For many this difference alone will inform the final choice, but both are top-notch tablets.
