Android phone makers should be nervous about the $699 iPhone 11

Apple’s budget iPhone is better (and cheaper) than last year’s.

Apple regularly gets criticized for the high prices of its iPhones, but in 2018, the company shook up its formula of only offering high-cost flagships with the introduction of the $ 749 iPhone XR.

When your pre-teen stans an iPhone, hit ’em up with a Pixel 3a

Because fake status symbols are dumb — especially at twice the price.

The Pixel 3a is in a weird place. On one hand, it’s not the Pixel 3. (Or the Pixel 3a XL versus the Pixel 3 XL, if that’s how you roll. And, in fact, that’s how I’ve rolled.)
