It’s Finally Here, The Next Generation iPhone

It’s been a long time coming, but the next generation iPhone is finally here! After many months of rumors circulating about the features of the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, I am happy to say that Apple did not disappoint. On the contrary, the iPhone event that took place earlier this month only made me more excited for the public release of Apple’s newest product.

The Next Generation iPhone

In case you’ve been living under a rock, on September 12th, Apple held an iPhone launch event. At this event, Apple announced the public release of three next gen iPhones; the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the highly anticipated iPhone X. Much like previous iPhone generations, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are an incremental update over the iPhone 7. The iPhone X, on the other hand, is the completely redesigned smartphone we’ve all been waiting for. Boasting the most powerful processor on the market today, along with a variety of new features, the iPhone X is poised to be the most sought after smartphone this holiday season. Let’s take a look at some of these exciting new features.

Wireless Charging


The new line of iPhones now offers wireless charging.

This has been on every Apple fanboy’s wish list for sometime now. Wireless charging has been a standard feature on the iPhone’s biggest rival, the Samsung Galaxy, for some time now. People have wondered when Apple would jump on board and add it to the next generation iPhone. I think I speak for everyone when I say I was slightly disappointed that the iPhone 7 did not have wireless charging capabilities. That being said, Apple has certainly made it up to us. Wireless charging is now the standard for this entire generation of iPhone models.

Edge-To-Edge OLED Screen

Perhaps the most exciting feature, exclusive to the iPhone X, has to be the new screen. While the physical dimensions of the iPhone X is closer to that of the iPhone 8 than the Plus, the screen itself is actually larger than the Plus’ screen. This is thanks to the edge-to-edge design. In addition to this, the OLED screen provides a higher contrast ratio and the ability to play HDR video. Because it doesn’t require a backlight, black colors tend to look much deeper.

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality is one of the hottest things in the technology world. The success of games like “Pokémon GO” is evidence of that. It’s no wonder that Apple finally jumped on the bandwagon by developing AR capabilities in its newest iPhones. These models are equipped with cameras that have been specially designed for the ultimate AR experience. Now, iPhone users can fully enjoy the newest AR apps and games out there.

The New P10 Smartphone from Huawei

With its new P10 smartphone, Huawei hopes it can begin to steal some revenue from its biggest competitors: Apple and Samsung. Many consumers in the United States are probably unfamiliar with Huawei’s products, which have yet to become popular there. However, these smartphones have become more and more prominent in Asia and Western Europe. It’s about time that consumers in the U.S. got with the program and started trying out Huawei’s new smartphones. In addition, because these are Android phones, you can easily install Highster Mobile on them. This app allows you to monitor your child’s cell phone to ensure they’re safe and visiting age-appropriate websites.

This brings us to the new flagship smartphone from Huawei. The Chinese company unveiled P10 on February 26th, with a variety of new features that can make it competitive with the iPhone and the other top smartphones on the market right now. It even has a portrait-mode in its camera, similar to the one included with the iPhone 7 Plus.

Android Operating System

The operating system is one of the biggest differences between the P10 and the iPhone. In my opinion, this is the largest hurdle for companies that aren’t Apple. Their phones have an entirely different interface from iPhones, which may cause Apple fans to shy away from them.

That being said, there isn’t anything inherently wrong with an Android phone, especially when it can still run Highster Mobile without a problem. Some Apple users may have tried out an older version of an Android device. If they didn’t like it, it may be the fault of the phone, not the operating system. So, it may be time for them to give a newer Android phone a chance.

Smaller than the Mate 9

One notable feature of the P10 is its superior processor.

The P10 has many new features, including a superior processor.

One of Huawei’s previous releases, the Mate 9, is now trumped by the P10. It includes many improvements that make it a worthwhile release. In addition, the P10 is not only smaller, but also more powerful than the Mate 9. This is thanks to its superior processor.  

New Cameras

Existing fans of Huawei’s smartphone line will appreciate the P10’s improved camera. The front-facing camera (often used for selfies) is 8MP, which is a big improvement over some of the other front-facing cameras on the market. There is a dual-camera on the rear, similar to the iPhone 7 Plus. One of the cameras is color and the other is black and white, which is an astonishing 20MP. This dual-camera system on the rear enables the P10 to take stunning portrait-mode, DSLR-quality photos.

Various Color Choices

One distinct advantage that the P10 has over some other popular smartphones is its variety of available color options. These include white, blue, two variations of gold, black, silver, rose gold, and green. While the phone’s color may not matter to those who plan to put a protective case on it anyway, people who don’t like having a bulky case on their phone will love this range of colors. If you’re planning on purchasing a smartphone for your child, they’ll also like the array of colors. You can then install Highster Mobile to keep an eye on their Internet activity.

Many people are going to stick to their Apple smartphone, rather than switch over to an Android device. The good news is that if you have the courage to try out a new phone and see what all the fuss is about, the P10 from Huawei might just be your new dream phone.
