Realme 7 Pro review: One step forward, two steps back

Realme’s rapid cycle of iteration means that you can expect a new mid-range flagship every few months. Unfortunately, Realme’s definition of rapid iteration involves adding a few features, while taking away others. This time around, the Realme 7 Pro adds faster 65W charging but switches up the camera set up. 

How well does the Realme 7 Pro fare as a successor to the Realme 6 Pro, and more importantly, is this the phone to get in the ultra-competitive mid-range segment? Let’s find out in the Android Authority review of the Realme 7 Pro.

Realme 7 Pro

The Realme 7 Pro brings class leading 65W charging to a mid-range price point while delivering on essentials like a decent camera set up, enough performance and a well-optimized but bloatware ridden software experience.

‘iPhone 12 Mini’ and ‘iPhone 12 Pro Max’ Said to Ship in November

Earlier today, Chinese leaker “Kang” shared allegedly accurate information for the products set to be announced at the upcoming Apple event on October 13, including details on the full iPhone 12 lineup.


According to the leaker’s information, which was later modified with corrections for product availability timeframes, the 5.4-inch “‌iPhone 12‌ Mini” will be available to preorder on November 6 or 7, with a launch date of November 13 or 14.

Meanwhile, the 6.7-inch ‌iPhone 12‌ Pro Max will allegedly be available to preorder on November 13 or 14, with a launch date of November 20 or 21.

Bloomberg believes that Apple will stagger the iPhone launches in 2020, while DigiTimes has previously suggested the two 6.1-inch ‌iPhone 12‌ models could come out first in October, with the 6.7 and 5.4-inch models to follow. Leaker Jon Prosser today has also claimed DigiTimes was correct earlier in the year.

For many years, homebuilders shunned home technology as a standard in their new homes. Instead, they left technology as an option for buyers as the norm. No more. Homebuilders today truly are making “smart homes” as a standard, knowing that the technology is in high demand and it will possibly help the home sell faster. Perhaps most importantly, the technology today will not create a callback nightmare for them or slow down their build cycle.

“It’s inevitable that smart technology becomes so fundamental to homes that it’s built into the homes,” says

Andy Boxall/DigitalTrends

If you are looking to take advantage of Prime Day deals to purchase a premium tablet, then you’re in luck. It’s rare to see discounts for newly released Apple products, but they do happen every once in a while. A perfect example is this early Prime Day deal for the Wi-Fi model of the 11-inch, 128GB version of the fourth-generation iPad Pro. The offer, which joins the list of Prime Day iPad deals ahead of the October 13-14 event, cuts $50 off the tablet’s price to take it down to $750 from $800.

Apple, which released the fourth-generation iPad Pro in March, claims that the tablet powered by the A12Z chip is faster and more powerful than most Windows laptops.

‘iPhone 12 mini’ & ‘iPhone 12 Pro Max ship mid-November, says leaker

A new leak claims that Apple’s new “HomePod mini” will be $99 and half the height of the original, plus details a release schedule for the whole of the “iPhone 12” range.

A leak originally posted on Chinese site Weibo but then relayed by previously accurate tweeter Ice Universe, claims to have full details of the rumored smaller HomePod, plus confirmation of the “iPhone 12” range Apple is expected to announce on October 13.

A translation of the original Weibo posting says, “HomePod Mini, priced at $99, 3.3-inch speaker, S5 processor.

Most places are scheduled for November 6/7, and will be released on 16/17. Please wait for the domestic release.”

The reference to a domestic release implies that these dates are for America, not China where the leak was posted.

At 3.3-inches, the HomePod mini would be just under half the height of the original HomePod. And at $99,

Australian pro surfer Matt Wilkinson’s narrow escape from shark caught on camera | Environment

Drone footage has captured professional surfer Matt Wilkinson’s narrow escape from a 1.5m great white shark off the coast of Ballina in northern New South Wales.

The world championship tour surfer was paddling on his board near Sharpes Beach on Wednesday when a shark swam quickly up behind him.

“I heard a splash and a noise and looked around and couldn’t see anything,” Wilkinson said, according to a statement from Surf Life Saving NSW.

Surf lifesavers were operating a drone overhead and were able to broadcast a warning from the aircraft’s speakers.

“The drone came down and told me that there was a dangerous shark in the area, return to the beach,” Wilkinson said.

“I got to the shore feeling a bit weird and the lifeguards showed me the footage and I realised how close it came without knowing it was there. It looks like it’s going for my leg
