Huawei trolls Apple, gifts iPhone buyers free power banks

Huawei trolls Apple, gifts iPhone buyers free power banks

Each person can only buy two iPhones. Previous year in the iPhone X, Apple simply connected two rectangular batteries together in order to cram its awkward shaped battery pack in the phone. Be on the lookout over the next couple of weeks for our take on the iPhone XS.

"Now we notice a lot of consumers are considering to buy older versions like iPhone 7 and iPhone 8".

Now Huawei's taking another shot - by handing out battery packs to people waiting in line for the iPhone XS and XS Max in Singapore. "You'll need it. Courtesy of Huawei". If you trade your phone in directly to Apple, the values run from $70 for an iPhone 6 to $525 for the most recent iPhone X. One of these markets is Australia, and the guys who run the YouTube channel TechSmartt got their hands on one of each to put them through a combined drop test, which involves dropping them from different heights.

This wireless charging dock will be made available in December of this year at Apple Stores (and likely other locations, but Apple Stores are the only stores Belkin's yet announced.) There'll be a black version and a white version, and both versions will cost around $160 United States dollars.


iFixit gave both phones a six repairability score out of 10, noting that critical display and battery repairs are still a priority in the design and that the display can be removed without removing the TrueDepth array. The iPhone XS Max 64GB is priced at Rs 1,09,900 while the 256GB variant costs Rs 1,24,900 and the price of the 512GB is Rs 1,44,900.

For a select few, however, purchasing a new iPhone is little more than a race to see who can destroy it first (and reap the YouTube ad revenue rewards).

Some of them want to resell the phones back home as there are no Apple stores in Vietnam, according to The New Paper.

If you're on the fence, consider the iPhone XS or XS Max as a several-year investment. Its display lacks the vivid colors, contrast quality and resolution of the XS, but the price tag is nicer at $749. There's also an adapter included in the box, which is a good touch - too many charging stations rely on you supplying your own charging brick.
