Don't expect a hologram of Princess Leia to pop out of the Hydrogen One phone, pleading "Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope." But in a different way Leia will be inside the $1,200 phone due to arrive next year. Red, the high-end cinema camera maker behind the Hydrogen One, said Friday that a startup called Leia is providing the phone's "holographic" display. The "Lit by Leia" technology provides a richer 3D look to objects in its display, according to the Silicon Valley startup. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic.

Samsung this week released its Galaxy Note 8, I have held one in my hands, and it's beautiful, I have seen the light, I have also seen the price tag: $949, In Australia, where I live, it's AU$1,499 -- about $1,200 in yank money, That's a lot of dollarydoos, That's the same amount I spent on my last laptop, the Razer Blade Stealth, More importantly, with that money, I could buy a OnePlus 5, an Oppo R11 and a Moto G5 Plus, All three, iPhoneMania is also upon us, brother, Apple is expected to the origin of pugs iphone case unveil new iPhones Tuesday, with rumours saying there'll be three this time, There'll be the usual iPhone and iPhone Plus combo, as well as a freaky new iPhone with an OLED screen and no home button, (These will apparently be named the iPhone 7S, 7S Plus and the iPhone 8.)..
iPhones aren't cheap. That third phone is expected to hit four digits in the US, with an estimated price of $1,000. I can only imagine how much this will cost here in Australia, the land of deadly animals and even deadlier markups. The cost ceiling for premium phones is rising on multiple fronts. In the US, Samsung's Galaxy S range for the past few years has started at $650. That changed this year, with the S8 bringing a stunning new design and bigger screen -- and an extra $100. The Note line saw a similar increase, going from $800-something last year to $900-something this year. (Prices vary based on carrier.) The new iPhone looks to nudge that price up even further.

The screens and processors get better, but they're improving the origin of pugs iphone case on already-vibrant screens and speedy processors, Camera improvements are more notable, especially with the advent of dual cameras, though at this point I wouldn't call sharper cameras a game changer, On the other hand, the Note 8 is beautiful, When I got my hands on it, my first thought was to sell all my possessions and start a new life, I wouldn't have clothing or appliances, but I would have a spiffy new phone, I suspect the new iPhone 8 will incite similar urges..
There's little justification for this desire. I've heard it said the allure of premium phones is in them being status symbols, but that's not quite it. It's more like expectation. The first smartphone I owned was an iPhone, as is the case for all of my friends. And even those of us who drifted off to Android did so through equally expensive phones from Samsung and HTC. In my head, thanks largely to it being the case during my teenage years, smartphones just cost AU$900 and up. I've already mentally committed to spending that amount when I decide I need a new phone. This makes cheaper alternatives, even if they're almost as good and half the price, less attractive.
