Xiaomi is beating Samsung at its own game

Xiaomi is leveraging Samsung’s business model and adding a few unique touches of its own to get ahead in India.

At the end of last year, Xiaomi did what no other manufacturer has managed to do in India over the last six years: overtake Samsung to become the number one smartphone company in the country.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs. Galaxy S8: Should you upgrade?

This one is a tough sell — but a sell Samsung isn’t really trying to make in the first place.

Honor View 10 vs. Samsung Galaxy S9: What do you get for the extra $200?

Most buyers will be happy with either of these phones — but that doesn’t mean they’re evenly matched.

Okay, this is a weird comparison, I know, but hear me out. The Honor View 10 stood toe-to-toe against the OnePlus 5T as one of the best “budget flagships” you can buy, with great dual cameras, sturdy build quality, and a compellingly low price in the range of $ 500.

On the other hand, the Galaxy S9 is the  [Read More…]
