Dell XPS 13 (9370) vs Dell XPS 13 (9380)

Can Dell make its XPS 13 laptop any better? Well it's tried with a new 2019 model so we compare the two and explain what has and hasn't changed.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) Or Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
There’s a new XPS 13 in town but you’ll struggle to justify the upgrade from 2018’s model with namely a new webcam as a headline upgrade.
Sure, there are other upgrades to the the core specs but for most people, these will be fairly insignificant. The inclusion of a cheaper Core i3 model is particularly interesting.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours


The launch date is now official and the Mi Mix 3 will arrive on 25 October with three exciting new features. Here's what we know about Xiaomi's successor to the Mi Mix 2S.

In March we saw the unveiling of the Mi Mix 2S, but Xiaomi's about to take things up a gear with the Mi Mix 3. The launch is now official, happening on 25 October, while the new phone could include exciting new features such as a truly bezel-less design, a pop-up selfie camera, an in-display fingerprint scanner and 5G support.

When is the Mi Mix 3 release date?
The Mi Mix 3 will be announced in Beijing, China, on 25 October 2018. We'll bring you full details on how to watch live nearer the time.

This is a little later than we had anticipated, given that the Mi Mix 2 was announced on 11 September 2017 alongside the Mi Note 3 and Mi Notebook Pro.
How much will the Mi Mix 3 cost?
According to Android Pure there will be standard and ceramic versions of the Mi Mix 3 with the following RRPs:

Mi Mix 3 Standard
  • 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM: 3399 Yuan (£383/US$496)
  • 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM: 3699 Yuan (£417/$540)
  • 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM: 3999 Yuan (£451/$584)
  • 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM: 4299 Yuan (£485/$627)
Mi Mix 3 Ceramic
  • 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM: 4399 Yuan (£496/$642)
  • 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM: 4699 Yuan (£530/$686)
  • 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM: 4999 Yuan (£564/$729)
  • 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM: 5299 Yuan (£597/$773)
However, Xiaomi has already confirmed that there will be a 10GB RAM version, which these prices do not account for, so we'd take them with a pinch of salt.

Remember that because Xiaomi phones are not officially sold in the UK you will need to purchase the Mi Mix 3 through channels such as GearBest or Geekbuying. Expect to pay a slight premium, and remember to factor in import duty (20%) when shipping to the UK, but even with this you should find fantastic value.

Mi Mix 3 specifications
Xiaomi has confirmed two things about the upcoming Mi Mix 3: it will support 5G, and there will be a version with 10GB of memory. But there's lots more in store.

As one of our biggest gripes on previous models, the possibility of a redesigned selfie camera comes as music to our ears. It's also something that has been rumoured for many upcoming phones in 2019 following its success on the Vivo Nex.

In line with this theory event teasers suggest that there is bottom bezel, which would increase the screen-to-body ratio and make the now shorter 5.99in smartphone easier to hold.

This smaller chin is also visible in a leaked photo of a Mi Mix 3 and screen glass/protector, but more interestingly this image also reveals an in-display fingerprint scanner. This has so far been seen only in the Mi 8 Explorer Edition and Mi 8 Pro.

On another Xiaomi teaser image a man is shown lying on the floor surrounded by Mi Mix models. The original is clearly visible over on the right with its wider body and single-lens camera, while the 2 and 2S can be distinguished by their dual-lens camera at the rear. The only model that doesn't obviously feature a fingerprint scanner at the rear is the one in the model's hand, though unfortunately the image is not clear enough to discern much other than its narrower overall appearance.

Also rumoured to appear in the new phone is a dedicated button for calling up Xiaomi's own voice assistant - Xiao Ai. This works only in Chinese, but if you buy a Global version of the Mi Mix 3 it will also feature the Google Assistant.
Aside from this we can safely assume we'll see many of the same specs as in the Mix 2S. Therefore, you should expect the Snapdragon 845 processor with 64-, 128- or 256GB of storage, a dual AI camera, Qi wireless charging and a 5.99in Full-HD+ 18:9 display.

The size, weight and battery capacity could all be affected by the shorter body, however.

As before there will likely be a black model with 18k gold detailing on the rear, and a white model with Chrome detail. There is also talk of a Ceramic model, and of a Ferrari Special Edition.

Nokia 9 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We've waited two years for the Nokia 9, and at the end of this month the company could finally put us out of our misery. Here's what we know about the Nokia 9 PureView, which could feature a penta-lens rear camera.
Nokia made its comeback to the Android market in January 2017 with the Nokia 6, and we've been waiting two years now for its long-rumoured flagship Nokia 9 to arrive. At MWC 2018 we thought that time was here, and then we got the the Nokia 8 Sirocco. But now the wait could really, really be over, as the Nokia 9 is tipped to land before the end of January 2019. 

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.

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.
