This review will focus on two models that will not make it to the US, but should be of interest to those in Taiwan, China, Japan, Korea, and elsewhere.

They could all also cost about a quarter more if the talked-up trade war between the US and China becomes reality. However, unpick what's happening, and why, and a Pandora's box opens that reveals just how much this is not only about trade, but about domination of future tech like AI, autonomous cars and 5G.The Trump administration doesn't think China properly protects intellectual property or sufficiently opens its markets to US companies. It also happens to have a massive trade deficit with China, with Americans importing vastly more goods from China than it exports.
