Edward C. Baig USA TODAY Published 6:15 AM EDT Sep 18, 2018 The radical changes came with the iPhone X last year. So, while the elegant new iPhone XS Max that I’ve been testing since Wednesday (along with the XS) has, by far, the largest display and is the most expensive and best iPhone ever, Apple’s latest handsets, good as they are, don’t move the needle all that much. The cameras are superb, but they were excellent before. The robust A12 Bionic processor inside means the handsets are faster, snappier, primed for immersive augmented reality, and, in theory, more power-efficient – that’s hard to judge in a few days – with Apple claiming marginally better battery life. But it’s not like prior models, which just yesterday got a performance boost with iOS 12, were poky. And while the latest screens are beautiful, iPhone displays have long been brilliant.

Jefferson Graham USA TODAY Published 2:26 p.m. UTC Aug 11, 2018 The new Samsung Note 9 phone is the biggest smartphone to date, with the longest lasting battery, most expandable storage and advanced camera specs ever on a digital device. And it’s only August. If you like those specs, just wait a few weeks. The Smartphone Wars will kick off in earnest, just after Labor Day, which also happens to be the unofficial kick off to tech’s selling season, the fourth quarter. Apple hasn’t revealed its hand, but the world’s most valuable firm historically announces new iPhones just after the Labor Day holiday. (Last year, the date was Sept. 12; Sept. 7 in 2016, Sept. 9 in both 2015 and 2014.) This year, we’re betting on Sept. 5, two days after Labor Day, and a week before the Jewish holidays.
