Consumer Reports, in its infinite wisdom, has called the Galaxy Note 9 the best phone you can buy in 2018. You might have some reservations about that label, but with some of the news in the past couple weeks on the teething pains coming out of the iPhone XS, perhaps they’re justified. But with at least three new Android phones on the way next month, is it premature?
Plenty to talk about this week including the leadership crises at the Facebook companies and what it could mean for your experience on social media from Instagram to WhatsApp. It’s all on the Pocketnow Weekly!
