Huawei P40 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra: which is the best smartphone?

While the Huawei P40 Pro is about to be marketed in France, we wanted to see what it was worth compared to the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. It is therefore time to oppose these two high-end smartphones in an anthology versus to know which of the two is the best device. Comparative.

The Huawei P40 Pro has been formalized very recently and at the moment - pending the Pro + model - it is the great champion of the Chinese brand, its standard bearer. It is therefore necessarily interesting to wonder what it is worth in front of the star of the market leader in mobile telephony: the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra .

In this duel at the top, we are about to dissect them point by point. Which of the two smartphones is better? Answer in our comparison.

A BIG SMARTPHONE AGAINST A VERY BIG SMARTPHONE
Suffice to say right away, neither of the two smartphones was designed for small hands. These are two imposing devices we are dealing with, but one of the two is still more moderate in its proportions than it…

Why Apple's PR spin on this year's WWDC cancellation is smart

Apple doesn't state a solitary word on coronavirus in its public statement about the retraction of the World Wide Developer Conference 2020 (WWDC). Rather, the organization tells astonishingly the best way to transform the wiping out of a significant occasion into an apparent advancement.

Truly, Apple's public statement on the scratch-off of WWDC 2020 is noteworthy from multiple points of view. The feature alone, "Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference 2020 commences in June with an all-new online arrangement", shows how all around situated Apple's PR office is. Here, an emergency is transformed into another "inventive" group.

However, to lay it out simply: WWDC is Apple's most significant mass occasion with the keynote address in the harvest time. Tech fairs, for example, the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, the International Consumer Electronics Fair (IFA) in Berlin or even home turf fairs like the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), L…

Prayer for my Daughter

Somehow or other I succeeded in leaving this poem out of the New and Collected (2008). I did not mean to, it just went missing. Then recently, when I was in Munich, the man who had invited me, Helge, said it was this poem that I had read some  fifteen years before at Cologne, that he remembered and that other people had liked so much.

Last night I read it at LUMEN, the cold weather harity in London, and one member of the audience has written to me and asked where she could find it. The answer was, 'nowhere'. But I have found it among old files, and here it is.

It was written for our daughter, Helen, just about to go up to Oxford in 1994, the year we moved to Norfolk. It refers to the Yeats poem, of course, and quotes it too, but it refers to much else. Each time I wrote one part another part demanded to be written so in the end there were seven. It was both fun and moving to write.

I think we are in rats' alley Where the dead men lost their bones
These are not forecasts since I don't consider myself a soothsayer. They are, I would claim, reasonably founded apprehensions. I break them into three headings.
1. Public broadcasting and media
This morning Charles Moore barks at Nick Robinson. He is clearly excited. He is telling Robinson that the BBC should lose its licence fee. In fact he is forecasting it.
Johnson had hinted at this earlier. It is not that the BBC is biased towards Labour, it is that it can, on occasion, be hostile to a Tory (much as it can be hostile to a Labour spokesman.)
Well, we can't have that! We cannot possibly support it. We must have a tamer more Tory BBC. and we will do it by turning it into a purely commercial operation, one ideally in the hands of one of our friendly billionaires, or, failing that, in hock to powerful commercial advertisers. That'll teach 'em!
And as for Channel 4...
This is the beginning of a very slippery …
