The Mate 20 Pro has a chin and runs Android.

It's also a spyware device for China.

The Xr steals the show in that picture with having the best color.

It also runs android, and won’t officially be released in the US.

Great looking device, but ironic you brought it up considering the context of this article.

Nope. The Gold looks far more appealing and premium.


I don't think so and aluminum looks cheap compared to stainless steel.

I disagree, but the irony is, none of them are cheap.

There are many bizarre Mickey Mouse cases available :)

Good thing the new devices are water-resistant, as you're gonna need a garden hose to get Mickey to leave that iPhone alone. :D
