Qualcomm reveals Snapdragon 845 chip just ahead of Samsung Galaxy S9 launch


Data Shows Early iPhone X Adoption Rate Besting Plus Models

The Consumer Report recently conducted several tests on the new iPhone X. These tests included tests in handling, durability, battery life, functionality and special features. The text appears to be in Chinese, but some of the numbers and quick translations reveal some details about the upcoming smartphone.

"We tumbled three samples of the iPhone X. The first was fine after 50 drops, but the glass on the back was significantly cracked after 100", the publication wrote.

What's notable here is Windows 10 at its core has been designed to run on x86 chip architectures created by IBM that form the foundations to every AMD and Intel laptop and desktop processor.

It's pretty likely the next LG flagship, the LG G7, will also rock the Snapdragon 845, and later on in the year a potential next-generation Google Pixel phone will have the chipset. Samsung's flagship phones for this year, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8, already have iris scanning technology, so it is being speculated that the South Korean company could be one-upping Apple by adding 3D sensing technology as an extra layer of security to the Galaxy S9's camera module.

"If not for the damage in that durability test, the iPhone X would have come in ahead of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus", says Richard Fisco, head of smartphone testing at CR. Although iPhone X performed well in the initial drop tests, it didn't fare so well after more extensive testing.

The iPhone X isn't the best iPhone you can buy, according to Consumer Reports. "In fact, if you combine the performance scores for stills and video, this is the highest-rated smartphone camera Consumer Reports has tested".

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are priced at $700 to $800 respectively.

We'll be updating this page with new smartphone deals throughout the holidays, so make sure to check back often. The other two similar smartphones suffered screen damage after 50. However, the latest report suggests the company will release an updated version of the Dex computer dock alongside the phone. But Consumer Reports' findings differ from other iPhone X and iPhone 8 drop tests. Reports indicated that Samsung may release the Galaxy S9 sooner than planned. The iPhone X, due to the aforementioned flaws, was ranked ninth overall.
