The going hasn’t been good for Android tablet makers. Many have tried — and failed — to replicate the success of the iPad .

The smartphones flaunt a new design with a camera bar at the back and it is the first time that Google is using its own chip-- Google Tensor-- in a Pixel phone.

This week, Samsung was the first retailer of the year to launch a new collection of handsets and now, Samsung Galaxy S21 deals and the larger Plus and Ultra are now available to pre-order. However, like many other pre-order periods, Samsung's latest devices are holding some pretty high prices, especially when you look into getting these handsets on a contract. With that in mind, if you've got some cash to spend upfront, the overall cheapest way to get any three of these handsets is to go SIM-free. All three options are actually cheaper than last year's Samsung S20 deals , making SIM-free a great option to make the most of these lowered prices. Go for the S21 - the cheapest of the three - and you'll end up paying £769 . The larger S21 Plus comes in at £999 and Samsung S21 Ultra deals come in at £1149 . While those are all expensive starting prices, it will be far cheaper than a two year contract. Once you buy the handset, you can simply invest in cheap SIM only … [Read more...] about Is it cheaper to go SIM-free or for a contract with Samsung Galaxy S21 deals?
At CES 2021 , TCL is stepping up its tablet game with two new devices, including a color electronic ink paper display that bridges the gap between monochrome e-readers and expensive tablets. The TCL NXTPAPER, is something of a middleground between traditional tablets and E Ink ereaders. The ‘paper-like’ 8-inch Full HD display emits no blue light, making it conceivably easier on the eyes. Otherwise, the TCL NXTPAPER packs a 5MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear camera, a 5,500mAh battery, and an octa-core processor allowing users to watch videos and other media. It isn’t backlit, giving it longer battery life but making users rely on environmental illumination; to offset that, TCL will include a light in the box.
